  1. In my opinion, Dead Space was the best new IP of the PS3/360 generation, along with the Souls games. I'd go as far as to say they're two of the greatest survival-horror games ever made and they're still extremely playabale today and have aged far more gracefully than the Resident Evil games. But EA being EA means this rather wonderful sci-fi/horror IP is now dead (even though the ideas for DS4 sounded great) and despite a resurgence in survival horror lately, no developer seemed willing to make a spiritual successor. Until now. The Callisto Protocol was revealed at the Game Awards and is helmed by Glen Schofield, the creator of Dead Space. Dead Space 2 director Steve Papoutsis is part of the team of around 100 people as well. It's being developed by the new studio Striking Distance and published by PUGB publisher KRAFTON, so it looks like those PUGB millions are being put to good use. And yes, it's a single player survival horror game. Set on Jupiter’s moon Callisto in the year 2329, The Callisto Protocol is a next-generation take on survival horror. The game challenges players to escape the maximum security Black Iron Prison and uncover its terrifying secrets. A blend of horror, action and immersive storytelling, the game aims to set a new bar for horror in interactive entertainment. “We’ve built a world class studio of passionate developers that is ready to once again tackle one of our all-time favorite genres—survival horror. We’re setting out to make one of the most terrifying games of all time, and we can’t wait to share more about The Callisto Protocol next year.” —Glen Schofield, Founder and CEO, Striking Distance Studios https://www.callistothegame.com/en This now joins Returnal and Elden Ring as my most anticipated game in development, because space horror is the best horror. Also, if you want to see how many Dead Space references there are in the reveal trailer, watch this: https://www.ign.com/videos/is-the-callisto-protocol-the-dead-space-successor-weve-been-waiting-for-rewind-theater
  2. That's all you get. That's it. It was enough to make me get out of bed at 2am and scream OH MY GOD
  3. Just announced on the DC Fandome event: Edit: Youtube versions:

  6. The original Automobilista was released in 2016 and is one of the most highly regarded driving sims ever released. The new game has just released into a short early access phase on Steam at a discounted price of £24.99. As a side note, it's only come out in early access due to the Covid-19 crisis, which has affected their ability to get everything finished on time and the main release will be 1 or 2 months from now. There is a crazy expensive season pass (£71.99!!), but you can ignore that as the game is pretty much feature complete and contains a crazy amount of content already. It's primarily based on the Brazilian racing scene, where the developers Reiza are based, but the new game contains content from all sorts of international racing disciplines. It's got racing trucks! Cars (and Trucks!): Tracks: Here's a link to the Reiza forum post for current content, as the image is hard to read here: https://forum.reizastudios.com/threads/automobilista-2-all-cars-and-tracks-currently-in-the-game-beta3.8704/ And this is just what's available now, there's more to be added during early access. The game is based on the same engine as Project Cars 2, so has all the same great weather/time-of-day features, but has been hugely tweaked by the devs and already has excellent force feedback/AI etc and is fully VR compatible too. I'm very impressed with it so far, driving the 90s F1 car at Suzuka felt pretty special for example. Anyone else interested or getting it?
  7. The rather average PS2 third-person action game series Gungrave is getting another sequel ! In Gungrave G.O.R.E, play the gun-wielding badass anti-hero of your dreams as you mow down tons of enemies in a gory ballet of bullets and experience a story of vengeance, love and loyalty, all in a beautiful third-person action shooter, combining the best that Eastern and Western game design have to offer. As the titular Gunslinger of Resurrection, you become the badass anti-hero Grave, an ultimate killing machine, brutalising your foes without mercy. Taking cover and retreating is not an option for Grave, he only ever goes full steam ahead, preferably right through his enemies. Stylish third-person shooting meets close-range martial arts, creating seamlessly flowing action as you crush your enemies in a gory ballet of bullets. Utilise your unlimited ammo Cerberus pistols and your transformable EVO-coffin to unleash devastating combos in pursuit of maximum damage and style. Strap in for a wild ride, an epic & emotional story of vengeance, love and loyalty, with more than 12 hours of gameplay in the story mode, for Gungrave fans and newcomers alike. Go on an epic adventure across South-East Asia, based on real-life locations with a dark, futuristic twist. Debut trailer: Latest trailer: >> Official website. Releases November 2022.

  9. Hello! Hollow Knight is a platformer on PC (now), Mac (soon) and Nintendo Switch (sometime this year) and it's utterly beautiful & I'm completely in love with it. Release Trailer: It's a mixture between a metroidvania and a Souls-like; you're exploring a non-linear map which is gated by abilities that your character picks up along the way, while also unlocking shortcuts and collecting & spending "Geos" (souls) which you drop when you die and have to corpse run to get them back or lose them forever. The combat seems tailored towards slow, methodical timed attacks & dodging thus far (I'm 2 hours in, so this might change). I'm finding it difficult but fair, although I'm generally rubbish at video games. Here's a video of me ineptly tackling a mini-boss which I think is a good demonstration of how it mixes the two genres (spoilers for about 3 hours into the game): Up the top-left of the screen are my Geos (the numbered icon) and my Spirit, which you can use to either heal (hold B) or fire a projectile (tap B). You gain Spirit by damaging enemies and Geos by killing them. It's £10.99 on Steam at the moment which is an absolute steal: http://store.steampowered.com/app/367520/ The soundtrack is also very very nice, and you can buy it on Steam or stream it on Spotify. The game was due to come out on the Wii U but it's been moved to the Switch instead and comes out later this year, the release date hasn't been confirmed yet. I'm really enjoying it, there's a great sense of exploration and the combat feels brilliant when you get your timing right. The art-style is beautiful and there's also loads of scenery to smash, which I approve of. You should play this game!
  10. Discord Server I reckon Valve could well start to wrap up the PC game publishing market over the next couple of years. I can't be arsed to buy PC games any more because they cost a bit too much and I just don't generally have time. I don't bother to look at the PC shelf in Game any more. But I've bought 3 games off Steam in the last 4 or 5 months (Sin Eps, Darwinia, X3:Reunion), for which the developers probably got more money than they would from a box anyway. I've hardly played them either, because of the time thing but I don't mind buying something for $20 which I'll just have a quick spin on every so often. It's genius for convenience and price. And the fact that every HL2 or CS:s player is right in front of the advertisig channel is a nice bonus for the developers.
  11. NOTE: Please see the below thread for dedicated discussion of Persona 5 Scramble; hopefully my thread can be the home of vanilla and Royal chat! Free legacy DLC for P5R: https://store.playstation.com/en-gb/product/EP0177-CUSA17419_00-P5RDLCBUNDLE0001 - once it's downloaded, check the cardboard box in your room to unlock it. Also, you may need to restart the game before it recognises the content. New semester conditions (and related advice) for P5R: General tips and notes from the forum: (This section is something that was suggested on October 18th 2022, shortly before Royal's release on PC and Nintendo/MS consoles.) UPDATED OP: This is now an OP about Persona 5 Royal. Like P4 Golden and P3 FES, this new game is intended to be a sort of "deluxe" update to 2017's Persona 5, with new events, a new "Phantom Thief" character named Kasumi, a customisable personal palace (named "My Palace") and other bits and pieces. Previously we found out that it would be released in the west around "Spring 2020", but on December 3rd 2019 we found out that the game would be released on March 31st 2020. Additionally, there will be the opportunity to place a digital pre-order and get an original P5R theme. P5R owners will also get original P5 DLC for free, and there are a few different editions of the game to look out for - the Phantom Thieves Edition (includes a Joker mask with stand, art book, physical disc and steelbook, soundtrack, dynamic PS4 theme), the Launch Edition (physical disc, steelbook, dynamic PS4 theme code), the Ultimate Edition (digital download, DLC bundles, bonus costume packs), and the Deluxe Edition (digital download, Kasumi costume pack.) Those DLC bundles will be available as separate purchases too; there's a Kasumi costume pack, a "battle bundle", a "persona bundle", and a "DLC bundle". I had mixed feelings about the original version of Persona 5 - in terms of content and presentation it was one of the most polished games in the series so far, but the more ambitious sequences that formed large portions of gameplay in the palaces sometimes threatened to overstay their welcome. So I'm kind of hoping that Royal comes with dungeon design that's perhaps a little bit tighter... but even if P5 wasn't my favourite game in the series, it's still a pretty good RPG in its own right and I look forward to having another excuse to revisit the world of the Phantom Thieves... http://www.atlus.com/persona5/ If you're wondering what a Persona is, I've provided a little primer below:
  12. Microsoft's Reward scheme. It's alright. In about 15 months I've made just over £240 from it and I've not been doing it religiously. It's not the gravy train it once was, but it's still a simple way to get Xbox credit in return for a good use of your time while sitting on the toilet, a tenner a month or so is easy enough to attain. Interested? Of course you are! Go here https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/rewards sign up using the MS login you use for your Xbox, follow the instructions. Click on everything available for points under https://account.microsoft.com/rewards/ and also do the desktop PC Bing searches to finish off - for those it's easiest to search for a letter under image search, and middle click on 30 different options. You can do it on mobile in a browser desktop mode, for that just put in a search term 30 characters long and delete a letter, search, delete a letter and so on until you've done the searches. Once you're earned 500 points (takes a day or two, there are all sorts of welcome offers to hoover up) you'll be at Level 2 and be able to earn direct from mobile searches as well (again, via Bing - app or set it to default search on your browser), and that's your lot. Daily, you get 3 points per mobile search (up to 60) and 3 points per desktop search (up to 90), along with three "daily sets" of things to click on. They're usually 10 points each, but there will be a couple of occasions per week where it's a quiz on one of them for 30 points or similar. Do those every day, and you can earn extra points for "streaks" where every few days you'll get a bonus for your streak, which is 15 points per day no matter what really: Streak 1, Day 3 (3 days) = 45 pts Streak 2, Day 8 (5 days) = 75 pts Streak 3, Day 13 (5 days) = 75 pts Streak 4, Day 20 (7 days) = 105 pts Streak 5, Day 27 (7 days) = 105 pts Streak 6, Day 35 (7 days) = 105 pts Streak 7, Day 44 (10 days) = 150 pts There's often additional stuff to click on daily and you can also pick up a number of points a day by using the Xbox Rewards app on the Xbox One, but that's tended to be 15 points per day so is a bit crap. You can get a couple of thousand for buying particular games or hardware, but sales generally beat doing that. You also get some points back for any game you buy from the MS store regardless. The occasional email gets sent with links for additional points, usually only 50 and they're only once few weeks at most. All in all, you can get an absolute minimum of 180 points per day just from a couple of minutes searching and clicking, with some extras on top. To what end? Rewards! Live Gold subs, Game Pass subs, Xbox Credit, Microsoft Credit, and things from other vendors that are really poor value. You can easily fund a month of Game Pass every month (6800 points, 17000 for 3 months), I usually save points for credit, of which Xbox and MS Credit are identical so pick whatever makes sense (currently they're 5850 or 4410 points for a fiver, respectively - the latter is on a 30% off deal 'til the 15th of October). As of the other month, any credit gets deposited directly into the redeeming account and you've got 3 months to spend it so you can build up 30 quid in your account if you like but then you have to spend some, but it gives plenty of time to hang on and see what comes up in the various sales. Gold and Game Pass are still supplied as codes to use anywhere. Anyway, the sums above only add up to a fiver of credit a month at best though, but you can near double it up. You're allowed 5 accounts per household, and if you set up a pair of accounts as a family you can transfer 5000 points per month between them. The only thing I'd recommend is using a separate phone number to verify each if you're asked, and don't ever set up a kids account as it's a right pain in the arse with the age restrictions. If you have two pairs of accounts, you can use the other pair to gift games to yourself if you go for credit (a code for the game gets emailed). If you want to rapidly gain points it's a bit finicky but you can use a VPN and pretend you're in the US, where they generate points almost twice as fast as we can. Switch back to UK, deposit points to the paired account, switch back. Might get your account banned doing that, but it'll only be the rewards part of it so there's little to lose. Here are my accounts, this is after exactly the first two weeks in September which is when the Streaks were added to the UK side of it. I use the second account to feed 5000 points to the first every month, and I'll probably use some of the slack to buy Gamepass subs. Not sure why the second account has earned so few by this point in comparison. Same sort of thing here with another couple of accounts, but the second account is gaining points from the US side of it and you can see the difference - almost a couple of thousand points more in 14 days. Lost that streak the day after, bloody timezones did for me. Again, second account feeds 5k points per month to the first but getting it to work was a bit of a pain given the functionality wasn't available on the US side so lots of region switching in the MS account was needed as well. Think it just works now, they got the transfer functionality added the other week. There you go then, that's it. I can appreciate a lot of people can't be arsed as it does take a bit of effort to really go for it plus Bing is awful and so is the Bing app, so there's that. edit: 2018/2019 Hot Deals, tend to run from the 16th of the month for a month, or thereabouts. 2018/07: MS Credit (20% off) 2018/08: Xbox Credit (20% off) 2018/09: MS Credit (30% off) 2018/10: Gamepass (25% off) 2018/11: MS Credit (30% off) 2018/12: XBL Gold (20% off) 2019/01: Skype (25% off) 2019/02: MS Credit (20% off) 2019/03: Gamepass (25% off) 2019/04: XBL Gold (25% off) 2019/05: MS Credit (20% off) 2019/06: Xbox Credit (20% off) 2019/07: XBL Gold (25% off) 2019/08: MS Credit (20% off) 2019/09: Skype (25% off)

    As a massive martial art movie fan I'm quite interested to see how this turns out.
  14. Well the time for the leather jacket lord approaches again later this year and likely around September for the flagship card/s. For anyone who recalls the horror of the last release, see this journal of frustrated nerds: Interesting things about the rumours so far. 1: In a time of rising energy costs, Jensen has ensured the 40 series of cards will likely be quite power hungry ranging between 400-450 watt rumours for the 4090 and 4080 (which is weird because of point 2) 2: If you remember when the 3090 launched, it was laughably poor value in comparison to the 3080 (RRP wise £649 vs £1399) for roughly a 10-15 percent performance diff Now the 4090 appears to earn being a step up if those numbers above are anywhere near accurate. It will still be blindingly expensive, think around £1500 ish again, but at least it should be significantly ahead of the 3080 to earn that The 3080 seems like a damp fart in comparison of an upgrade (but still appears almost as power hungry which makes no sense), if its priced near the OG 3080 RRP, I might try and upgrade for the additional powah and extra rumoured 6GB of video memory which apparently might be downgraded to GDDR6 as opposed to the X on the 3080. Basically it looks like they're going to make the 80 series kinda weak (relatively) to the 90 compared to last time where the 80 made the 90 kinda redundant to most enthusiasts. Apparently there is an excess of 30 series stock in the market so except a dumping of GPUs at RRP or less nearest to release Hopefully with mining on the collapse, stock won't be as insane to find as last time but expect 20 series price gouging instead of 30 series RRP benevolence that only a lucky few got to enjoy. Is anyone else gonna try and upgrade? I might not go for the top card but I like upgrading every two years to stay bleeding edge. Part of me is the fun of selling my GPU early and then struggling to get another one and being a console BOI for a few months. I have a steam deck this time so DONT CARE
  15. Don't know if this has been posted already but there is a new Mass Effect in-game video. Have to say it looks very promising... http://masseffect.bi.../downloads.html
  16. Doomfist; Anniversary Event 23rd May - 12th June
  17. By Yager Development Official Site Release Date: Spring 2015 ABOUT IMAGES VIDEOS Looks a bit good (very). That being said, Dying Light, Hellraid and now this all look extremely similar but I have faith in Yager!
  18. Steam Page (and demo!) - under £15 rrp Metacritic (when reviews are up) I've been looking forward to playing the full game since the demo came out as part of Steam's Next Fest. Long story short: you manage and run a service station in the snowy arse end of nowhere, except the tech tree offers a variety of services and improvements that starts becoming morally ambiguous as it goes on. The demo demonstrates it quite well - you start off getting a better toilet. That toilet provides data on customers, that can be fed to a terminal to tell them about their health. That, in turn, can be used as data for an on-site automated surgery. And an organ vending machine on the side. Alongside the general expansion are narrative stories and missions from specific customers, which can have some unexpected consequences! Helps that it plays in a similar vein to Theme Hospital, too - a lot of space management and working on what's coming through the door in terms of customers. Anyway, I think it's neat, but feel free to give the demo a go and say it's bollocks. Full game should be out today (14-NOV-22). EDIT: it's now out! £14.something RRP, £13.something at launch, and about £11.something if you already own Night Call (same devs, Monkey Moon).
  19. I couldn't find a thread for this so apologies if a duplicate. After playing this at EGX last year I picked this up today for it's paltry budget price. If you liked Inside then just go buy Little Nightmares now. I'm I think about half way through and it is utterly brilliant. It's looking like being one of my favourites games so far this year and that's saying something given the year we've had already. Basically take Inside, a dash of Trapdoor, Little Big Planet and a dash of your childhood fears and you're there. I urge people to not watch spoilers and take the plunge. I just hope the rest holds up to what I've played so far. As info this runs at 60fps on PS4 Pro and at a higher res, looks fine on my standard model though.
  20. https://wiredproductions.com/games/arcade-paradise/ It's pretty criminal that I couldn't find a dedicated thread for this bloody good game! It's developed by Nosebleed Interactive, the people behind 2017's Vostok Inc, and published by Wired Productions. Left by your father to work a dead-end summer job looking after the launderette he owns while he's away, you find a small arcade in the back with 3 old games in it. Soon you hit upon the idea to start building up a bigger collection by using the money made from the washing machines and the arcade. Before long, it's clear (to you, anyway) that the arcade could be much more successful than the launderette if some time and effort is put into it, and your dreams of running your own business start to bear fruit. But with your father having no interest in arcade games, he's only prepared to listen to ideas about expanding the launderette. How will he react when he finds out that you're doing the opposite of what he says? The best thing about Arcade Paradise is that it's really bloody generous - there are over 35 arcade machines to buy to fit out your arcade, which are all playable cabinets, and various new game mechanics and tasks are fed in as you go. While the first 2 or 3 hours are fairly slow going as you have to balance the laundry with the arcade to make money, soon you can ignore the launderette entirely and concentrate entirely on the fun stuff (aside from picking up rubbish and throwing it in the big bin outside, obviously! Oh, and removing chewing gum. And unblocking the toilet). All the arcade games have been specially created for Arcade Paradise - not all of them are great but many are surprisingly compelling, and each has a set of goals to achieve through play which increases their popularity and therefore the money you earn from them, giving you more incentive to play. There's a very modest management sim element here too, but that isn't particularly in-depth. Most of your time will be spent playing the arcade games themselves. With clones of the likes of Drop 7, Pong, Arkanoid, Dance Dance Revolution, Missile Command and tons more, with some brilliant music, recurring characters and also some cool in-game radio ambience, there's always something to do, and the story bubbling along underneath is pretty fun. Anyway, do give it a go if it sounds good. It's only £15.99 on Switch, which is my preferred way to play as the game is perfect for handheld. It has a gameplay loop that's super-addictive, and it's often been a real struggle to drag myself away from my now-bustling arcade. Great concept, great game.
  21. It looks like this is essentially Halo 6. https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/our-journey-begins

    Ghost Song

    Just a few more minutes and Ghost Song will finally be released! This one's been in development from before Hollow Knight was even a game jam entry, so yeah, the wait has been long! Gonna dive into this over the weekend. Anyone else keeping an eye on this metroidvania?
  23. Epic store exclusive until it leaves early acces. I've been watching Vinnie from Giant Bomb play and it looks fun https://www.satisfactorygame.com/ Surprised we don't already have a thread.
  24. Link Platinum Games, the studio founded by former Capcom developer Clover, has apparently struck a deal with SEGA to publish three games. Those games are: • Bayonetta, directed by DMC creator Hideki Kamiya, and is described by the site’s correspondent as a “stylish action game” with “a witch battling angels”. Apparently she has guns on her feet. • A science-fiction RPG for the DS called Infinite Line, where you play as a starship captain, customising your ship and crew. • A Wii game called MadWorld. ...it’s, “Black and white Sin City graphics, with red blood. Ultra ultra violent. Fatality moves like shoving a post through someone’s head. Chainsaw on your right arm.” Was a rumour but this trailer for MadWorld here: Here Edit: Trailer for Bayonette: here Looks official, is this a seprate company to 'Seeds' then, founded by other members? or Platinum Games what Seed grew into?
