In a surprise move Sega has given Platinum Games' all-time classic action game Bayonetta a PC release. Available right now on Steam this version of Bayonetta offers up the game playable in 4K at 60fps, which is nice. Also, the release marks the first of many more PC conversions (which is what Sega is calling this as to not associate themselves with the taint of being labelled a port) in the works from Sega. Which is also nice.
And be available for the somewhat reasonable price of $54.95. Which is pretty good. What started off as a story expansion for Uncharted 4, The Lost Legacy is rumoured to feature up to 10 hours of new content. And that's new content starring Chloe and Nadine, with ol' Drake nowhere to be seen. Hey, that rhymes. Better keep that up, so here's a new trailer so you can see what's up.

Called Overwatch Uprising the new brawl brings the game's second ever PvE mode, as players take on the roles of Tracer, Torbjörn, Reinhardt, and Mercy ton the streets of King’s Row.
And so after waiting many months for the glorious return of the 3D platformer, here's our review of Yooka-Layle. And just when you were wondering what a new 3D platformer for ex-Rare developers who worked on many of the classic titles from the N64-era would look like, comes the answer.
