Well, that's our first impression based on the announcement and launch trailer - which highlights the new 3v3 arena rocket-launcher based combat of Nexon and Final Strike Games' Rocket Arena. Which is about to begin a Closed Beta run from May 23 to May 29 via the Nexon Launcher and Steam.

Which is good timing too, as the Evil Geniuses Dota 2 team has once again qualified for The International 2019 tournament. Where in the past five outings the team has managed to secure a top five finish. This new strategic partnership with Razer means the team will utilise Razer’s esports-grade peripherals (headsets, mice, keyboards) for training and tournament use.

Created in Unreal Engine 4 and looking pretty damn impressive too. So much so that we remember playing this level (The Jade Moon) way back in the day on the Nintendo 64. Getting to see Rogue Squadron with fancy new visuals, with the same great music and sound effects, is pretty special - and makes us hope for a brand new straight-up aerial and space combat Star Wars game to be announced.

Which the Game of Thrones writer confirmed in a recent blog post without going into any detail.

Making it the first game to ever do so - that is, a launch with full cross-play support. The action-RPG from developer Phoenix Labs is described by some as a take on Monster Hunter, albeit one that allows players use an Epic Account to play across PC (via the Epic Games Store), PS4, and Xbox One.

After the recent Notre Dame tragedy, Ubisoft made Assassin's Creed Unity free via Uplay - allowing players to experience the historic landmark in great detail. Following on from this Valve noticed that on Steam the game saw an influx of positive reviews in a fashion that made the platform holder wonder if it was a case of positive 'review bombing'.

Stay tuned for our full review later in the week, but in the meantime be sure to check out the launch trailer for No Code and Devolver Digital's brilliant new sci-fi thriller Observation. A truly immersive experience where you're in direct control of a space station's AI (think HAL from 2001) as you attempt to help Dr. Emma Fisher and figure out what happened to the crew.

Although Sony won't be at E3 this year to lift the lid on its next-gen PlayStation console, last month it revealed some of the technical advances the console will feature. Namely, a high-end SSD that will offer vastly improved data streaming. After being mentioned in the original reveal thanks to Wall Street Journal tech reporter Takashi Mochizuki, today we've got a short demo of the PS5 loading Spider-Man's Manhattan in 0.83 seconds.

After last Season's massive buff and overhaul to many of Diablo 3's sets and items, this Season sees the introduction of new Torment difficulty levels in the form of Torments 14-16. Plus, a Seasonal Buff for all players that applies the Legacy of Nightmares "no set item" bonus by default. Like last Season's Royal Ring buff it will no doubt lead to so some pretty fun builds.

Or one of the many movie tie-ins found during the 8-bit era of the 1980s, which saw videogame versions of just about every action film imaginable pop up - including ones for Robocop, Dirty Harry, Die Hard, and many more. And so this imagining of Keanu Reeves action film series John Wick as an NES game works well in that it looks like it could just as easily been something seen in 1989.

World of Warcraft Classic represents a very different time and place for the now 15-year old multiplayer game, so much so that players enjoying the current Classic Beta are reporting bugs that aren't actual bugs. Which has led to Blizzard posting a list that reminds players that, yeah, this is the way things used to be.

Pairing the open world design of Avalanche Studios with the gunplay and precision shooting of id Software, RAGE 2 has been on our radar ever since it made its debut last year. With its vibrant punk aesthetic and over-the-top action, we decided to send Toby Berger into the wasteland. Armed with a can of neon-pink spray paint, a gelled up hairdo, and a VHS tape of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, he finally emerged to bring you this review.

In a move that apparently surprised Sony’s PlayStation division, the two companies have announced a major partnership around utilising Microsoft Azure "to support their respective game and content-streaming services". Which in essence means PlayStation and Xbox servers sharing the same data centre space and possibly even the same AI technology for streaming and other delivery.

Which if you've been following Call of Duty's recent development history would mean that Treyarch would be taking over the spot many expected to be filled by Sledgehammer Games (Call of Duty: WWII, Advanced Warfare) and support studio Raven.
