And sure, that might not mean much to some, but this is a player who helped LBJ and Miami win two championships, was originally drafted by them, and ended his career there. And yeah, sure, Anthony Davis is the current talk of the town given he's moved from Bourbon St to Figeuroa, but I'll be requesting the Wade cover, if you don't mind.

For those that have been following the development of Castlevania spiritual successor Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, it's taken a few years to get to this point. With the ultimate question being - does it live up to its inspiration? Thankfully, the answer is a resounding yes.

Season 2 of Apex Legends is set to go live on July 2, and two new trailers outline some big changes coming to the Kings Canyon arena. Quite literally, as we get to see glimpses of giant dinosaur-like creatures and monsters. And the aftermath of bridges and buildings getting destroyed. Also, new character Wattson.

And that's in terms of pricing with the new Razer BlackWidow offering the same great feel as the Razer BlackWidow Elite but with a few less premium bells and whistles. Which is what Steven Impson found out in his soothing mechanical clicky-sound filled review.

And before you're wondering why something like Cyberpunk 2077 didn't win, to be eligible a game needed to be playable by judges - as we highlighted when the nominees were announced. In addition to Final Fantasy VII Remake other big winners include DOOM Eternal and The Outer Worlds.

And it's open to anyone over the age of 18 and will cater for both online and offline participants - the latter to be held at a number of different conventions around the world.

From development studio Deck13, The Surge made waves as a sci-fi take on the action-RPG style of Dark Souls. Challenging tactical combat in a brutal world. The sequel which is out in September looks to build on that foundation with a much more vibrant and alive world to explore, improved AI, and more fluid combat.

Although that headline is about as exciting as beginning a new trilogy of Star Wars films with talk about trade negotiations, and it's stuff that doesn't really affect us in Australia, we're talking about a pretty major thing. Even though it only affects the poor citizens of Naboo and the U.S. Anyway it's the big three: Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony holding hands and coming out against trade tariffs imposed on China.

You may not be aware but there's an entire PC hardware sub-culture dedicated to overclocking and pushing memory and RAM speeds as fast as humanly possible. Which means coming up with unique cooling methods and builds that don't become lava if left on for more than a minute or so. Anyway, the already-fast Ballistix Elite DDR4 3600 memory is the stuff they use.

And how at Blizzard over the years, roughly 50% of all games in development don't make it to release. Former CEO and Blizzard co-founder, Mike Morhaime spoke to an audience at a Gamelab conference in Spain recently and opened up about the studio's highly publicised but never released follow-up to World of Warcraft - code-named 'Titan'.

The Sinking City from developer Fragwares is an interesting beast. On the one hand, it's a representative piece of H.P. Lovecraft-inspired storytelling in videogame form. The detective nature of the game makes for interesting gameplay, but isn't as wholly freeform as we're promised. But, it's still very good.

In a series of posts on Twitter, the head of Epic Games Tim Sweeney outlined his defense for the Epic Games Store exclusive strategy for PC game releases. Addressing the backlash he outlines the reasoning, which is all about loosening Steam's grip on the marketplace. And the platform's revenue split of 70/30 being detrimental to developers.

Released for the Super Nintendo in the 1990s, ActRaiser stood out with its blend of platforming, action, and city-builder sections. SolSeraph, announced today by SEGA looks very much like a spiritual successor, thanks to the god-like protagonist, top down city builder stuff and 16-bit era inspired combat.

With Konami's long running series Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 joined by the arcade-style racing of Horizon Chase Turbo. Which at a glance looks be heavily inspired by the likes of Outrun - and that's never a bad thing. Both titles will be available to all PlayStation Plus subscribers from July 2.

There was a time during my formative years in the early 90s where the sheer mention of "mutant", "turtle", "sewer", "pizza" and words I'd never heard of before like "cowabunga", "Leonardo", "Donatello", "Michelangelo" and "Raphael" got me all giddy inside. (I did actually know of the artists before a few mutated turtles and a rat popularised them to heights they'd never thought they'd ever be known for, but that's another story altogether.)

Ahem. Anyway, a few fans of the TMNT arcade and console classics of old have put together a free-to-play mashup with 60 playable characters.

In the original Half-Life, Gordon Freeman had a brief stop in a weird alien world between worlds that immediately captured people's attention. The impressive fan made remake Black Mesa is looking to expand on that with an exciting new chapter set in the mysterious Xen. After it's stunning debut last year in trailer form, it's playable right now as part of a Technical Beta.

A longstanding arcade and home console classic, SNK's Samurai Showdown has entered the modern era with an entirely new iteration in the series built off Unreal Engine and looking every bit as good as some of the other fighting games out currently. It's also bloody as all get up.
