Earlier this week we reported on the announcement of Left Alive at the Tokyo Game Show, a new survival action shooter from Square Enix. Today we learn that it's set in the world of 'Front Mission' and comes from Toshifumi Nabeshima, who worked on the Armored Core games plus Metal Gear character designer Yoji Shinkawa.
Online titles always have a way of bringing out the worst in people. And the best. Which is why the former always tends to stick out even when it might only represent a tiny fraction of the community. As part of Blizzard's ongoing efforts to create a more welcoming Overwatch environment as of next week it will start dishing out permanent bans.
One of the reasons people play racing sims is the simple fact that you get to drive a bunch of different cars that you probably would never actually get to see in real life. Let alone drive. Real life high-end McLaren vehicles like the 650S Coupe and the 650S GT3 are a good example. Both of which will be in next month's Gran Turismo Sport for PlayStation 4. But, there's also something very special coming too.
With Creative Assembly about to drop Total War: Warhammer II next week, we've got the official word on the post-release content coming to the game. Now, this has become standard for a lot of high profile releases of late but in the case to Total War: Warhammer the Mortal Empires update sounds incredible.
Called Battle Royale, and it's coming to Fortnite next week launching as a free mode on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. For those with an understanding of PUBG the 100-player PvP mode will sound familiar. Except that the fort building mechanics of Fortnite will carry over to add a new twist to the Battle Royale formula.
If you've played through the excellent Tomb Raider from 2013, you'll no doubt get a sense of deja vu whilst watching this trailer for the new Lara Croft film. Which is also a reboot. And some slight confusion when you see that dude from The Wire, the robot girl from Ex Machina, and Boyd Crowder from Justified. Anyway, the source material update is a sound decision and some of what we see here could potentially, umm, end up as part of decent film.
Twenty years after our first taste of 3D Mario on the Nintendo 64, we go hands-on with one the biggest releases for this holiday season. Super Mario Odyssey on the Nintendo Switch. The next entry in the genre defining series that began with Super Mario 64. Yeah, this is kind of a big deal. And if you're wondering how it fits into the legacy of classic Mario, be sure to read on.
Covering the American cities of Dallas, Houston, and Philadelphia. Bringing the total number of teams for the first season of the long-awaited Overwatch League to 12 - covering Asia, Europe, and North America. But mostly, North America. Which is to be expected, especially with the recent announcement of the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles.
