It’s a little over a week to wait before the general public can grab their living or dead hands on a copy of Capcom’s highly anticipated Resident Evil VII, promising a ‘back-to-roots’ experience with horror and puzzles. As is usually the case when titles draw closer to release, review copies are handed out and unfortunately, some show lack of respect for the developers and/or publishers by releasing information, and more importantly spoilers, over the internet. The latter has hit the net by storm, with plenty of streams and videos uploaded that spoil the ending(s) amongst other things. Of course, here … Read More »

Bethesda describes an example of what can be achieved with these settings: Let’s say you’re a stealth player who likes to carefully explore every option… now you can move a slider that adjusts how effective you are leaning from behind a barrier when skulking around. With more than 20 different sliders, … Read More »

After Ubisoft’s recent release of the Assassin’s Creed movie, it seems like they have an itch for live action movies as we’re treated to another live action trailer today for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, but this time it’s a trailer for…well… a live action movie, based upon the upcoming game. They’ve even designed a sweet movie poster for it too… War within the Cartel is the subtitle of the movie and has a big name behind it.

We have just learnt of yet another Xbox exclusive cancellation, from our friends over at Windows Central. This time it’s Platinum Games’ Scalebound; the action-RPG dragon-riding epic – which was one of 2017’s highly anticipated titles. We knew that it would be a mammoth of a game, allowing up to 4 players co-operating and customising dragons to their liking, and was first announced back in 2014. We’ve seen countless images and numerous gameplay footage, especially some showing off dragon battles that was shown at E3 2016: Scalebound had the potential to be a whole new IP, with sequels and potential merchandise. Other than SEGA’s … Read More »
