Xbox supremo Phil Spencer has confirmed there’ll be no similar briefing at Gamescom (Cologne, Germany, 17-21 August) this year – but there will be a Sea-of-Thieves-galleon-sized boatload of games to play, including Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Halo Wars 2, ReCore, We Happy Few, Everspace, and Cuphead. With six stands across three areas and two halls, Microsoft’s presence will be anything but low key. Mr … Read More »

Think back to the cartoons of your childhood, the whimsical music and the cheeky antics of the beautifully handcrafted animated characters. The style was slick, elegant and timeless. It is this style that is replicated in Studio MDHR’s upcoming game, Cuphead. It is not only the animation that harks back to a simpler time. The gameplay isn’t too complex either. This is a classic run and gun game that focuses on one thing more than anything else, and that is boss fights. The developer have now also treated us to a gameplay video of one of these boss fights and … Read More »
