Star Wars is a huge universe with unknown planets and species and cultures just waiting to be explored and expanded upon. And today it looks like that's exactly what we're going to be getting with the forthcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor sequel from Respawn Entertainment and EA.
It's no secret that we loved Coffee Talk. Or that we're waiting with baited breath for its sequel, Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly.

We've already spoken about our intrigue over Deck 13's forthcoming Atlas Fallen, and today publisher Focus Entertainment alongside the studio have released an all-new trailer highlighting some aspects of gameplay, most notably in the game's traversal, which sees the protagonist as something of a prolific sand surfer.

Stephen King writing as Richard Bachman in the early 80s released The Running Man -- a dystopian sci fi novel that eventually made its way to the silver screen in an action epic starring Arnie.

Horizon Call of the Mountain has many moments where you'll stop, stand there, and take in the view. Like the series' mainline games on PS4 and PS5, the world of Horizon is chock-full of impressive jungles, forests, icy peaks, and giant robot dinosaurs. And all of that takes on new life in VR.
As it did with Resident Evil Village, publisher-developer Capcom has dropped a playable demo for the hotly-anticipated Resident Evil 4 Remake, available to play now on PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S and has no limits as to how many times you can play through it.
Yeah, PlayStation Vr2 or PS VR2 is just that good - a monumental leap forward over the original PS Vr from back in 2016.

When exactly, we're not sure -- only that it'll be in "2023".
