Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation Finally Brings Back Tina

2 hours 44 minutes ago

While the Dead or Alive franchise appears to be dormant on consoles, the free-to-play PC game Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation continues to grow its roster.

Over the past few years, many new girls have been added to the game, but fans have been wondering why some of the classic heroines from the fighting games were left out. Today we learn that one of them is returning with tomorrow’s update, and it’s Tina Armstrong.

The superstar wrestler will as usual be made available with her dedicated gacha, and you can see her in action in the trailer below.

As usual, you should not expect to get her immediately (or even in the near future) unless you’re willing to pay. Her gacha will be exclusive to paid V-stones. Even if you are willing to open the wallet, the game’s terrible percentages won’t help you. The usual 1.1% SSR chance will likely be diluted down to 0.78% by a bunch of useless old SSR outfits thrown in the mix to make things unnecessarily difficult.

The good news is that her introduction will likely mean that the previous newcomer Koharu will likely become available in a free gacha soon.

6 Games We Think the Rock Is Totally Bringing to the Silver Screen

2 hours 46 minutes ago

In a recent interview with Men’s Journal, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson — the burly mountain of muscle with a million-dollar smile — revealed that he intends to “bring one of the biggest, most badass games to the screen.”

The Rock stated that an announcement was coming but that he could not divulge which franchise he was referring to. This is not unfamiliar territory, as he has both Doom and Rampage under his belt. That particular belt hangs shamefully in an unassuming corner of the basement, as both of those movies were quite dreadful.

So what could Dwayne Johnson be hinting at? The gaming world is abuzz with the possibilities, and we’re throwing our hat into the ring with a list of options that will someday prove prophetic. Don’t be surprised when he actually elects to do all six of them in quick succession. Or simultaneously. He’s pretty versatile, you know.

Also, our hat is an expensive fedora with a playing card wedged into the band, and we would like it back when you’re done with it.

Apex Legends Season 12 Launch Trailer Teases Changes to Olympus Map

3 hours 52 minutes ago

Respawn is back at it again with another trailer to hype up a new season of their popular battle royale. Apex Legends Season 12: Defiance just received a cinematic launch trailer that gives us a look at Mad Maggie’s introduction to the Apex Games along with some changes to the Olympus map.

Defiance goes live on Feb. 8 and, as fans can expect, it’s bringing more than just a new Legend. Even though the video didn’t show any gameplay, it teased Olympus being warped while falling out of the sky along with some new lore and Mad Maggie’s potential abilities.

Also, when the new season drops, it’ll bring a brand-new LTM called Control that’ll be live for three weeks. It’s a 9v9 mode with infinite respawn where teams fight to capture and hold points on the map, which sounds a lot like Hardpoint Domination from Titanfall 2.

Horizon Forbidden West Has Gone Gold

4 hours 35 minutes ago

Guerilla Games’ anticipated upcoming sequel is no longer in danger of any delays. The developer has today announced that Horizon Forbidden West has gone Gold, a term that was originally coined to describe the process of the final data file being ready for print on CD. Today’s digital era has slightly muddied the water on what exactly going Gold really represents (given that day one patches typically make huge changes to the “final” data file), but it does at least mean that the game will certainly be launching on Feb. 25.

The news comes by way of a Tweet from the game’s official channel, which, as you’ll see, includes a short video teaser:

Atelier Sophie 2 Is a Familiar Adventure for the Fans (Hands-On Preview)

5 hours 15 minutes ago

Once upon a time, the Atelier series used to not get sequels bringing back the same protagonist. Apparently, Atelier Ryza 2 paved the way, and fans will soon be able to enjoy the return of another fan favorite. Sophie Neuenmuller will be back with Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream.

I got my hands on a pre-release copy of the English version of the game on PC, and it certainly feels like a treat for the fans. Sophie is definitely a beloved character among the rich cast of the Atelier series, having appeared in several games on top of the one (now two) in which she’s the main heroine.

The story starts pretty much where we had left it, with Sophie more determined than ever to take the Alchemist exam to follow in the footsteps of her grandmother and to find a way to give Plachta a human body.

Yet, things don’t go as planned and our heroine finds herself in a different world created by the goddess of dreams, separated from her friend. Though, not all the people she’ll meet will be complete strangers… in a big twist.

Latest Bel-Air Teaser Trailer Finally Reveals That “One Little Fight” Scene

8 hours 30 minutes ago

Pretty much anyone who was around in the ’90s will know the words to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song by heart, and if you don’t – we feel sorry for you. In all seriousness, Will Smith’s iconic TV show – which helped catapult the fledgling star into worldwide popularity – was a staple back in the days before streaming took the world by storm, and we consumed shows in a more calendar culture kind of way.

Fast-forward to today, though, and Peacock has greenlit a brand-new reboot of the beloved sitcom for modern viewers – simply dubbed Bel-Air -, and it’s scheduled to begin streaming on Feb. 13.

As you can imagine, there’ve been lots of trailers to help shed some light on what fans can expect from the series, and today we have a new teaser video for the upcoming show, which reveals a scene we never got to see in the OG show. Go ahead and take a gander at the new Bel-Air footage below:

That’s right, we finally get a glimpse of that fight scene that led to Will up-and-moving all the way from Philadelphia to his Auntie and Uncle’s place in Bel-Air. You know the lyrics, right?

Skul: The Hero Slayer Surpasses 1 Million Copies Sold

15 hours 27 minutes ago

Skul: The Hero Slayer launched via Steam Early Access back in 2020, and then saw its official launch just a year ago in January 2021. Since then, the game has gone on to sell over one million copies, which is a pretty impressive statistic for an indie rogue-lite game.

The developers continued to push out updates for Skul after the official launch, and they’ve also outlined some of their future plans going forward. Most notably, there has been a rework of the game’s hard mode, as the devs have stated that they don’t just want hard mode to be a higher level of difficulty where enemies hit harder. Instead, they want the mode to be a little more interesting than that, and even potentially surprise players.

“Old skulls will be renewed, boring skulls will be more fun, and it will become meaningful to use skulls that were weak. 
Through the upcoming Skull reform update, we would like to bring forth a new sense of enjoyment and experiences while laying down the foundation for hard mode content.
In addition to skulls, items and Inscriptions will also be reformed, and adjustments to level design made along with the hard mode update. The direction of this reform is the same as the skull reform.
The goal is so that even more diverse combinations can be powerful and enjoyable to prevent certain items and combinations from becoming overused.”

Skul: The Hero Slayer is now available on PC and Switch.

Dying Light 2 Environment Art Director Talks Street Art, Graphics, & Building Immersion

18 hours 52 minutes ago

Dying Light 2: Stay Human is slowly shambling closer to its February release date, and Techland has been offering up more details on how the game’s world and city is built. In a new video, Dying Light 2 environment art director Katarzyna Tarnacka talks about the little details of the world, including the street art and murals we see in-game, the street signs and advertisements, and how they breathe life into the City itself.

You can check out the video for yourself down below:

As you’ll be spending most of your time exploring the City, parkouring around in first-person view, it’s important to build a sense of immersion and the idea of this place looking and feeling like it’s been lived in. The in-game art helps to reinforce the lore and story of the game, while also giving players insight into the game’s social climate.

Dying Light 2 is set to be released for PC and consoles on Feb. 4, and we’ll have our official review for the game out by then.

Celeste Creator Celebrates Game’s 4th Anniversary By Thanking Fans & Acknowledging Personal Growth

19 hours 18 minutes ago

It’s been a whole four years since the release of Celeste, 2018’s indie darling and one of the toughest 2D platformer games we’ve played in recent years, and also one of the most uplifting. In celebration of the game’s fourth anniversary, creator Maddy Thorson has published a blog post thanking fans for their support and also acknowledging the discourse surrounding the game over the years, including discussion of its queer undertones.

“If the discourse around Celeste hadn’t become so focused on its queer undertones, I don’t think I would have come out publicly for a long time. It felt like people needed to know whether Madeline was trans, and I felt a responsibility to engage with that conversation. Once I started trying to do just that, I found it impossible without talking about my own now-apparent transness.”

Thorson goes on to state that it is important for trans people to be visible in media, but at least for the time being, she’s decided to step away from social media and her own public persona for now.

“The size and breadth of the platform is alluring (addictive even) but it ultimately has begun to feel empty. Who I am is changing, or wants to change, and this public persona has become an obstacle to that change. It doesn’t feel like I have room to be the messy, growing human I am in this kind of position. I’m not ready to be a symbol in the way that social media demands- I’m still just a girl who’s trying to figure her shit out.”

Celeste is now available on PC and consoles.

Mortal Kombat Movie Greenlit For a Sequel, Brings In Jeremy Slater as Scriptwriter

19 hours 37 minutes ago

The Mortal Kombat franchise got a movie adaptation last year (no, not the 1995 one with the awesome music), and was released to critical acclaim. While the movie deviated slightly from the games by introducing a brand new and original character, Cole Young, as the main protagonist, it was still deeply rooted in the lore of the games and delivered on a high-octane action-packed movie experience.

The movie has since been greenlit for a sequel, and according to a report from Deadline, it looks like Jeremy Slater will be brought on to the project to work on the script. Slater worked on Disney+’s Moon Knight TV series adaptation, starring Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke, and is set to air in March.

With all the little teases and hints towards a possible continuation of the story in last year’s Mortal Kombat movie, it’s no surprise that we’re getting a sequel especially considering its reception. There are no other details on the sequel just yet, but we’ll keep you updated as more info comes our way.

Steam Deck Finally Gets Its Release Date

23 hours 14 minutes ago

Today Valve announced the release date of their highly anticipated handheld PC console. The Steam Deck will launch on Feb. 25, roughly a month from today. This release isn’t entirely open, however.

The Feb. 25 release date will only include those that reserved their order last year when the Steam Deck was revealed. When that date hits, those that ordered one will have three days to confirm and finalize their purchase.

Here are the full details via Steam:

“Hello, the day is almost here! On February 25th, we will be sending out the first batch of order emails to reservation holders. Customers will have 3 days (72 hours) from receipt of their order email to make their purchase, before their reservation is released to the next person in the queue. The first units will be on their way to customers starting the 28th, and we plan to release new order email batches on a weekly cadence.”

Also, Valve added:

  • We will start sending invites shortly after 10:00 am on February 25th, PST
  • Order emails are sent in the same order that reservations were made.
  • You can only order the Steam Deck model that you originally reserved.
  • Your reservation deposit will be applied to the final price of Steam Deck, and shipping costs are included.

As the notice above suggests, once this initial backlog is cleared out, they will then begin accepting orders for new people that didn’t get in on the first batch.

The Steam Deck has the potential to be quite a disruptive piece of hardware. We’ll see how it shakes out in about a month.

Book of Boba Fett Meets Mario Kart in This Hilarious Fan-Made Video

1 day 1 hour ago

A few weeks ago on Disney+, The Book of Boba Fett aired one of the most unintentionally comical chase scenes ever seen in entertainment, as the former bounty hunter’s subordinates chase a vehicle using Vespa-like hover scooters. In fact, the chase was so ridiculous, one fan even went out of their way to make a video with sounds and features from Mario Kart, and it fits in seamlessly.

Posted to the Youtube channel Darth Porg under the title Boba Kart, the following video will have Star Wars and Mario Kart fans rolling in laughter, as it shows off a mock race the Twi’lek Majordomo, Drash, and the other machine-gang members.

Keen viewers will notice a bunch of subtle touches in this crossover, including clever use of the fire flower power-up and a scene at the end where Boba Fett joins the race. This video is just one of many Star Wars-themed pieces of content that Darth Porg has to offer, so be sure to go and check out their official Youtube channel for more interesting clips.

Top 6 Most Anticipated Games of 2022

1 day 1 hour ago

Another year brings with it another exciting line-up of new games to look forward to. As part of Twinfinite’s annual award season, the staff has voted for its six most anticipated games of 2022. These are the landmark titles we think will define what is shaping up to be the first really big year of this most recent console generation.

Most Anticipated Games of 2022

6. Starfield

most anticipated 2022

Editor-in-Chief Ed McGlone: Depending on who you ask, Starfield might seem low on our list, or they might feel it’s too high. Personally, I think just being on a list of most anticipated games is just the right spot.

It’s being developed by Bethesda, so that alone means you have to be hyped for it at least a little bit, as long as you’re into open-world RPG games. Bethesda has earned its reputation for being one of the most prolific creators in that space.

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

1 day 3 hours ago

Today Paradox Entertainment announced the release date of the previously-revealed PS5 and Xbox Series X|S port of Crusader Kings 3.

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.

The port, developed in collaboration with Lab42, comes with an entirely reworked control scheme to enable governing your domain via gamepad, on top of support for the fast SSDs and haptic/adaptive controller feedback.

PS5 players will be able to feel the stress of their ruler thanks to the resistance provided by the DualSense’s triggers that will react dynamically to in-game events.

Below you can see a trailer, a few screenshots, and a look at the control schemes, and read an official description of what you can expect.

Bringing both adventures to the PS5, the games have been given a bunch of new features and improvements that only the power and feature set of Sony’s latest system could deliver.

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

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.
