No Man's Sky Studio's Lost Early Games Return

1 day 2 hours ago

No Man's Sky studio Hello Games has announced that it's surprise-released remasters of its debut Joe Danger games on Apple devices.

Before it gained notoriety for making No Man's Sky, Hello Games cut its teeth with Joe Danger - a sidescrolling mobile series. Now, ahead of the character's tenth birthday, Hello Games has revealed that both Joe Danger and Joe Danger Infinity have been remastered for iOS15 and are available as of today from the App Store.

The remasters see a number of enhancements over their predecessors. Improved graphics, a new engine, and upped framerates are present in both titles, while Joe Danger Infinity will also gain the added benefit of gamepad and ProMotion support for those who are interested. To cap off the good news, Hello Games has also revealed that any fans who already own either game will receive an update today for free.

Studio head Sean Murray added that, at a later date, both games will be "fully playable for free online".

Having originally sold over a million copies, Joe Danger unfortunately became a casualty of the Apple App store, as iOS looked to cull older games that were no longer supported by the latest Apple devices. While Hello Games founder Sean Murray admits that the success of No Man's Sky left Joe Danger slightly unloved, he says that the team has been working for the past two years to bring the character back to life, piece by piece through eight years of Unity updates.

Halo Infinite Was The Series’ Biggest Launch Ever, Forza Horizon 5 Crosses 18 Million Players

1 day 2 hours ago

Forza Horizon 5 Halo Infinite Playerbase Numbers

To probably nobody’s surprise, Halo Infinite is a hit. Not only did it review well back when it was officially released in December – Game Informer gave it a 9.25 out of 10 – but many people played it. A quick scroll through Twitter would have told you that, but thanks to Microsoft’s second-quarter earnings call, we now know just how much. 

Video Games Chronicle reports that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who is likely still riding the high of acquiring Activision Blizzard, said more than 20 million players have played halo Infinite. Halo Infinite’s multiplayer was launched as a beta back in November before the campaign was released on December 8 on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC (and on Xbox and PC Game Pass as well).

Monark Demo Appears for Switch, PS4, and PS5

There's a way to try NIS America's next game ahead of its launch. The company announced the Monark demo is available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5 outside of Japan. While the eShop site page isn't online, people can visit the PlayStation Store in browsers to grab it. However, the trial is only limited to consoles at the moment.

No Man's Sky dev's much-loved stunt racer Joe Danger returns to iOS in remastered form

1 day 2 hours ago

No Man's Sky studio Hello Games is bringing its much-loved Joe Danger series back to iOS with various enhancements after an earlier operating system update left the games unplayable.

Joe Danger Touch and its sequel Joe Danger Infinity (which initially came to iOS in 2013 and 2014 respectively) both fell foul of Apple's decision to end support for 32-bit apps with iOS11 back in 2017. However, over the last few years, Hello Games has, as detailed in its new announcement, been tinkering on the titles to get them playable again.

This Week's The Book of Boba Fett Holds A Surprise For Star Wars Video Game Fans

1 day 3 hours ago

This week's The Book of Boba Fett episode is loaded with surprises and will surely delight fans who consume all of Star Wars' movies, shows, comics, books, and even video games. The focus of this article is just one of the surprises, which is relatively small compared to others in the episode, but still warrants a big SPOILER warning. I urge you all to watch the episode before continuing on, but if you have no interest in the show, or want to see if the surprise will make you watch, continue on.

It's been a big week for Respawn Entertainment. Yesterday, the developer announced three new Star Wars video game projects are in the works, including a follow-up to 2019's excellent Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The star of that game is Cal Kestis, a Jedi in training who just happens to befriend a little droid named BD-1. This new BD droid type was created by Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm and has since emerged in other Star Wars stories, including an issue of the Doctor Aphra comic book.

Every Game Delay Announced in 2022 (So Far)

1 day 3 hours ago

Video game delays have become commonplace during the pandemic — we tallied 60 delays in 2021 alone — as studios largely continue to work within the confines of remote or hybrid development. This dramatic shift in the way games are made may remain the norm throughout 2022, and as such, we're once again expecting to see a significant number of games delayed.

To keep track of these ever-shifting release dates and to keep you up on when to expect your most-anticipated games, we've created a running list of every such announcement: full games, notable DLC, and every piece of gaming hardware officially delayed this year.

Click through the gallery below or continue scrolling for the full list of every game delay announced in 2022 (so far).

STALKER 2 : Hearts of Chernobyl

  • Delayed from April 28 to December 8, 2022

STALKER 2 was the first game officially delayed in 2022. "These additional seven months of development are needed to fulfill our vision and achieve the desired state of the game,” said developer GSC Game World. “STALKER 2 is the biggest project in the history of GSC, and it requires thorough testing and polishing. We are convinced that development should take as long as necessary, especially in the case of such a project."

Jeff Gerstmann's Top 10 Games of 2021

1 day 2 hours ago

Jeff Gerstmann is a professionally recognized anime expert who loves to "get fresh." You can follow him online via Tiktok at @freddurst2000.

No Caption Provided

OK, forget whatever I'm going to write about whenever I get to the top video games of the year later on down this page. The video game of 2021 is Outriders. Outriders is the 2021 of video games. Outriders is the game I played while I was waiting to get to the other side of wherever it was that I was then, in hopes of getting to something better on the other side. It wasn't a bad year, and Outriders was not a bad game. But in a lot of ways I was just trying to get through it and get on to whatever is next.

I never did finish Outriders, but then these first weeks of 2022 have felt a lot like 2021, too, so hey, maybe that balances out.

The release cadence and quality of video games felt a little herky-jerky all year. Many of the big games were things that had been delayed into their eventual 2021 release window, and a lot of stuff launched in weird states of not-quite-ready. The video game industry's transition to working from home happened in 2020, and things were probably smoother by 2021, but... not the sort of thing you'd actually call "smooth."

Rorie's Games Of The Year (Good And Bad)

1 day 2 hours ago
No Caption Provided

2021 started off with me getting a sleek and shiny new 3080 in February! SMILES! It broke in September! FROWNS. But I got it RMAed by NVIDIA! I was back to smiling at that point, and here we are, with another long year in the books.

Those of you who know me from the site know my tastes, probably: I like big flashy games with lots of guns and explosions and I like them to look very nice indeed with a high framerate. There’s a reason that DOOM Eternal was my GOTY last year! This year I felt like my gameplay habits were somehow even more along these lines, as I wanted to stress my video card and big-ass monitor as much as I could. So most of what I gravitated to this year was big flashy AAA stuff. I've become a gaming basic bitch and I’m pretty OK with that.

Jan Ochoa's Top 10 Games of 2021

1 day 2 hours ago

This has been a tough year for numerous reasons. I don't need to list the specific reasons, but I definitely felt like my tank was running on empty a lot of the year. Hell, a couple weeks ago I was even debating with myself whether or not I still enjoyed or liked video games anymore. I've been juggling feelings of inadequacy and general emptiness on and off constantly. Like I've had a weird underlying feeling of "survivor's guilt" bubbling under the surface. My sleep sucks. I have such a short fuse lately. The only thing consistent is that I feel like I'm constantly waking up on the wrong side of the bed.

Burnout? Great game.

Let's take a deep breath. Okay, let's take another. Did I have to tell y'all to exhale because that goes without saying I think. Sick - now it's time to look at the big picture we got going on and it turns out that there may be more highlights than I thought. I ran a race with my best friends, my partner got into grad school, met and then got to hire Jess, started a Power Ranger podcast with Matt, got to run it back and do a couple of podcasts with good ol' Benjie P, I even hosted the Bombcast a couple times, and shoot I even got promoted. I know that the year for Giant Bomb isn't what everyone expected, there's a lot of negativity online and everyone's feelings are valid. But yo dawg, put your TRUST in me. WE got this. Let's talk about some GAMES NOW HUH?!

Here’s a quick list of stuff in no particular order that ALMOST made my Top 10

  • Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
  • Fuga: Melodies of Steel
  • Loop Hero
  • Knockout City
  • Psychonauts 2
  • Shin Megami Tensei V
  • Wildermyth
  • Unpacking
  • Persona 5 Strikers

Actually I just wanted to shout out a couple more things

Jeff Bakalar’s Top 10 games and games-adjacent things of 2021

1 day 2 hours ago
No Caption Provided

By now you probably know Jeff Bakalar. He was the guy hanging around the Giant Bomb East studio so much that they eventually asked him to co-host the Giant Beastcast. Then one day a pandemic hit and everyone left. He wanted that rotating chair to stop spinning so bad, well guess what, joke’s on him now.

Right, so now that the dark prophecy has completed and I’ve moved over full time, it seems appropriate that my 2021 list be mostly video games and not some other collection of things I really like and want to force you to read about.

Full disclosure though, a couple pinball machines found their way on my list this year because they are great games that deserve the attention. You didn’t think I’d let this whole thing be console or PC did you? Aww, you’re silly.

Cover Reveal - Elden Ring

1 day 3 hours ago

In 2009, From Software released Demon’s Souls, a game that would go on to be a precursor to a new subgenre of games. Since then, From Software and visionary game director Hidetaka Miyazaki have produced gem after gem, serving up dense atmospheric worlds, brutal challenges, enthralling environments, and incredible triumphs for players to experience. From the horrific nightmares of Bloodborne to the tranquil cherry blossoms of Sekiro, From Software has masterfully applied its core framework of systems to a variety of compelling adventures.

In Elden Ring, From Software’s creation culminates with an absolutely huge open world to explore, with design decisions and features learned from over a decade of honing dark fantasy action/RPG fare. With around 10 hours of hands-on gameplay with Elden Ring and a one-hour interview with Miyazaki, join us on a journey through the early portions of this grandiose epic. After this incredible experience with the full game, I can honestly say I have never been as excited for a release as I am for Elden Ring. Luckily, we don’t have to wait long, as Elden Ring is scheduled to arrive on February 25.

PlayStation Plus Games for February 2022 Announced: UFC 4, Planet Coaster, & More

1 day 3 hours ago

Today Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the games that will be granted to PlayStation Plus subscribers in February 2022 at no additional cost.

We’re getting UFC 4 and Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-shot Adventure for PS4 and Planet Coaster: Console Edition for PS5.

They will be made available on February 1 and will stay so until February 28. It’s worth mentioning that we’re not getting the PS5 version of Tiny Tina’s or the PS4 version of Planet Coaster despite the fact that they exist.

If you’re unfamiliar with any of the games, here’s an official description for each.

EA Sports UFC 4 | PS4

No matter how or where you play, EA Sports UFC 4 puts you at the centre of every fight. Develop and customise your character through a unified progression system across all modes. Go from unknown amateur to UFC superstar in the new Career Mode, or challenge the world in new Blitz Battles or Online World Championships* to become the undisputed champ. Fluid clinch-to-strike combinations offer more responsive and authentic stand-up gameplay, while overhauled takedown and ground mechanics deliver more control in those key phases of the fight.

Elden Ring Story Takes 30 Hours To Beat, Side Content Adds Dozens More

1 day 3 hours ago

Who isn’t excited for Elden Ring? I mean, the Soulsborne enthusiast himself, Dan Tack, claimed that FromSoftware’s upcoming fantastical RPG will likely be 2022’s GOTY – and that’s just based on the various trailers and his experience with hands-on preview builds! But how long will players be exploring this alleged possible-GOTY sandbox? Well, according to a PCGamesN report, Elden Ring’s mainline story will take around 30 hours to beat, with side content adding in dozens more. Of course, it’s probably safe to throw another ten to twenty hours of “you died” overlays to that runtime, too. 

At the Taipei Game Show, Elden Ring producer Yasuhiro Kitao stated, “This will differ significantly by player, but in terms of the targets set during development, the idea is that the main route should be able to be completed within around 30 hours.” Kitao would later go on to say, “The game as a whole is quite massive, and contains many dozens more hours worth of gameplay, but if we are talking about the main route only, it shouldn’t take much longer than that.”

Stranger Of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is baffling in the best way

1 day 3 hours ago

"Just tell us about the crystals", demands Jack, Stranger Of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin's prickly protagonist. He has no time for the posh dark elf who applauds him for something. Whatever it is, Jack doesn't care. In fact, I don't think he knows where he is. If he does, he wants nothing to with it.

This interaction is contained in a new trailer that I deem to be perfect. It sells me on this Final Fantasy action RPG, because it seems like I'll get to control someone as impatient as I am. Jack lives for crashing and bashing. The story is an inconvenience for him, the fighting is not.

Bloodborne Figma Figure Releases Delayed

1 day 3 hours ago

Bloodborne Figma Delayed

Back in March 2021, Good Smile Company announced the original Bloodborne Hunter figma would be rereleased alongside a new weapon set and The Old Hunters Edition of the figure. It was supposed to appear in January 2022. However, this piece of Bloodborne merchandise is now delayed. It won’t appear until sometime in July 2022.

The announcement offered a reason for the delay. Apparently, this is due to a quality control issue. The news confirmed Max Factory will be “adjusting our production line” to ensure things are as they should be. In addition to the Bloodborne figures, the Cyberpunk 2077 V figma is delayed as well. That’s pushed back to June 2022 for the same reasons. Also, its Makoto female swimsuit body figma is delayed to an unspecified date.

As a reminder, the Hunter figma first appeared back in June 2018. Alongside the rerelease, a weapon set with Hunter Axe, Hunter Blunderbuss, Ludwig’s Holy Blade, and Whirligig Saw items, extra parts, and extra figma hand parts also appeared. People could get that alone or as part of a The Old Hunters version of the figma.

The Bloodborne Hunter figma, the standalone weapon set, and The Old Hunters Edition of the figure will all launch in July 2022. Bloodborne is available on the PS4.

Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires Demo Appears on Consoles

Trying before buying is now officially an option worldwide for the new Dynasty Warriors game. Koei Tecmo released the Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires demo on consoles. It features an opportunity to test out two types of gameplay. People can also create characters they can use in the full game. Japan got its chance to play the trial back in December 2021.

First, the main activity in Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires demo is seeing what the Castle Sieges are like. People can both try to protect their base in Defensive Battles or invade someone else with, well, Invasion Battles. There is only one difficulty level here. However, tutorials are present and the final game offers multiple difficulty levels.

As for custom characters, Edit Mode is present in this trial. People can make a Custom Officer. This character can then either be used in the Castle Sieges present in the demo or saved for the full game. Once that launches, someone can import that data.

Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires will appear on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Google Stadia on February 15, 2022. It is immediately available in Japan. People with consoles can get the Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires demo now.

Crusader Kings 3 for Xbox Series X|S & PS5 Release Date Announced

The popular grand-strategy game with RPG elements (or perhaps RPG with grand strategy elements?) will be released on the new-gen consoles on March 29, 2022. It’ll also launch on Game Pass.

Paradox is calling this release an adaptation, rather than a port, because of all of the changes that have been made to, well, adapt the game for console play. UI, text, menus, and more have been overhauled to provide a more comfortable experience while playing this immersive strategy title with a controller. "The all-new control map lets players quickly and easily navigate the game’s menus via triggers, bumpers, and quick flicks of the analog stick," reads a press release sent to Game Informer. To utilize the console experience to its fullest, Crusader Kings III will sport faster loading on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, and controller features like haptics and adaptive triggers on the DualSense are supported as well.

eBay Will Now Authenticate Trading Cards to Combat Costly Fakes

1 day 5 hours ago

eBay has announced that it will be expanding its Authenticity Guarantee service to include trading cards in a bid to combat the number of costly fakes that have grown in circulation.

As detailed in a press release, the company has stated that it will be expanding its Authenticity Guarantee starting with single ungraded cards.

While free, the service at launch will include any collectible card games, sports and non-sports that are sold as single ungraded cards for a fee of $750+ in the U.S. Looking ahead, however, the company says that it also has plans to include graded, auto and patch cards sold for $25+ - though this won't be available until mid-2022 at the earliest.

The move represents eBay's latest bid to reassure customers when purchasing higher-value items through the online marketplace and follows in the authentication footsteps of other products such as handbags ($500+), sneakers ($100+), and watches ($2000+) that are already covered by the guarantee.

Review: Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection Revs Things Up on the PS5

Review: Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection Revs Things Up on the PS5

I have a history with the Uncharted franchise. I've half-finished two of them, bought the first three on PS3, picked up the PS4 compilation, and then grabbed the collection again when it was offered for free for PS5 owners. Something always comes up that derails my intentions of playing through the series. (Usually, it's a JRPG, as the genre is my Achilles heel.) With Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on PS5, there was no way I could allow myself to be sidetracked by anything else.

Starting with Lost Legacy, and then heading into Uncharted 4, I spent the last week or so diving, climbing, dodging bullets, taking punches, and swinging from places where you will never catch me in real life. I met Sam Drake and Nadine Ross for the first time. (Gotta say, not a huge fan of in-game Sam. Retired Sam seems like a better dude.) There were gods and pirates and a surprising lack of torn clothing. My palms were sweaty from the intensity of it all. Nearly every minute spent in this world was amazing.

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection Review – Prettiness for a Price

1 day 4 hours ago

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on PS5

If there’s a studio that really spearheads PlayStation’s exclusive library, it’s Naughty Dog. The developer has been pushing the limits of what we thought was possible in video games, from stellar writing and character development, through to minute visual details that help bring their worlds to life. One of its most iconic franchises has been the Uncharted series, telling the tale of Nathan Drake as he travels around the world in search of long-lost treasures only talked about in myths and legends. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection combines both of the PS4 titles — Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and its standalone spin-off, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy — and gives them a fresh coat of PS5 paint, all to tempt us with another playthrough of these iconic adventures.

Editor’s Note: As Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection consists of two games we’ve already reviewed — Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy — this review will primarily be focusing on the improvements Naughty Dog and Iron Galaxy have brought to the collection thanks to the additional horsepower of the PS5. We will be covering how the gameplay in both titles holds up years after release, but if you’re looking for full reviews, we’ve linked them for your convenience below.

Resident Evil 4 is arguably the best entry in Capcom’s iconic horror franchise.

Moreover, a Resident Evil 4 fan-made Remaster that’s been eight years in the making is slated to finally launch next month, as reported by Eurogamer. And based on the extensive trailer (seen below), it was well worth the wait.
