I never thought I'd explain a genre as "car parkour survival racing", but here we are, and now I've typed it out twice. But I don't mind, because after checking it out in video form, it looks incredibly promising and fun.

And boy, does it look polished. Well, as polished as 8-bit era games can look. The quirky little adventure is also a budget title, coming in at under AUD$15. Developed and published by Indie studio, LUEGOLU3GO STUDIOS, based in Spain, Nogalious definitely wears its retro heart on its pixelated sleeve.

For the past few BlizzCons there's been that little hope in the back of fans' minds; a little voice saying "hey, maybe this is the year we get the Diablo 4 reveal". We've known for quite some time that Blizzard has been hiring for a mysterious Diablo-related project. Which has now been confirmed to be multiple Diablos.

Yeah, we've been teased for a sort of teaser, but hey, it's Red Dead Redemption 2, so we don't mind. And if you needed a good enough reason to stay up on a school night, this is it because it airs at 1AM AEST (so very early Friday morning, or later tonight).

Which is to say, I'm not entirely sure what I just wrote in that headline, but it seems to me that the fictional Career Mode character of Alex Johnson (played and mo-capped by actor Adetomiwa Edun), now has a fictional 'real-world' signing with Real Madrid. Or something like that.

So not only do you get a real glimpse of some tight Insurgency: Sandstorm PvP action (which looks impressive, by the way), but as a pre-order bonus you can also jump into the game's first official beta starting next week. (This footage was taken from a closed technical alpha build.)

Namely in the trailer's title: "Take the Crown". Also in highlighting just how good he is. But beyond that, and a backing track by Jay Rock, it also highlights just how good this latest edition of the game is looking. Like, seriously, the animations, individual player characteristics and even the NBA presentation are very, very good.

In a vignette series designed to give excited tomb raiders a look at what they can expect in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, we see just how incredibly gorgeous this new playspace is, how a number of gameplay mechanics work, and a closer look at combat. All servicing Shadow of the Tomb Raider as potentially the best yet in the rebooted franchise.

I've been on extended holiday away from Azeroth, so this type of news is news to me, but I figure everyone who's still populating the world ought to know that "the opening shots have been fired in the next great battle for Azeroth", what with the alleged destruction of Teldrassil and all. (I say "alleged" because as I say, I've been on holiday away from Azeroth.)

The full game isn't out until September 25, but SEGA's popular tactical role-playing game, Valkyria Chronicles, will launch its fourth official installment next month, but ahead of then you can jump in and trial the game now with a free demo on all three console platforms. (Sorry, no PC.)

In fact, it's out in just seven days, arriving on GoG.com and Steam on August 14. And according to inXile's Brian Fargo, the new remasters feature updated visuals and even bug fixes the team faced back in the 80s for an absolutely complete experience in one of the most celebrated RPG series of all time.

Which is obviously this month. The game centres around a little robot (obvs "Tyler") who comes to life and tries to piece together a mystery around his dilapidated surroundings. Which also means there's time-travel. Confused yet? Well...

SEGA Confirmed overnight that Football Manager 2019 -- the stats-heavy management spreadsheet-style game for, you know, football (or soccer) -- will be arriving on PC this November 2nd, and will also come packaged with a number of new features.

And a new name too: Tokyo Dark - Remembrance. This side-scrolling adventure game mashup might look relatively simple, but thanks to a deeper horror component and an emphasis on character sanity, exploration and decision-making, is a lot deeper then it appears on the surface.

We recently got the chance to get some serious time in with Insomniac's Spider-Man, which releases exclusively on PlayStation 4 next month. And while we're aware there are clear Batman: Arkham comparisons, we swung away a little more impressed with the more personal side of the game.

And in that acknowledgement, BioWare's Casey Hudson teased that the developer has "some teams hidden away working on some secret stuff that I think you’ll really like", but stopped short of confirming what it actually is they're working on adding that they're "just not ready to talk about any of it for a little while...".

Set to get a full reveal ahead of Gamescom later this month, today a Life is Strange 2 teaser trailer emerged that is more cryptic than a short look at what to expect. But, due to the cinematic ambition of the first season this sort of movie-style teaser trailer works well for Life is Strange. Of which, Square Enix is also describing as a universe or setting for a wide range of stories.
