Which is some mighty big chops. Mimimi Games was also behind the equally excellent Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, so this new venture definitely has some lineage.

Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew looks to play in a similar fashion: isometric game-world, stealth and tactical play, only in this new adventure you're a cursed crew of pirates sailing aboard an actual ghost ship with a living soul in an alternate history in the Caribbean.

There, we reckon that got your attention.

Dead Island 2 has been a long time coming, and the wait has been worth it for the most part. It launches in a solid state (at least on Xbox Series X) with excellent performance and impressive visuals. And its next-level zombie destruction combat provides some solid fun that shines in co-op.

It's not often we see a developer make substantial changes to a game based on feedback received during an open beta weekend, and that's partly because most "open beta" weekends arrive just before a game launches and aren't betas at all. That's not the case with Diablo IV, one of the most anticipated releases for 2023.

"Dine with the Dead" is the clever slogan that invites burgerphiles to dine out at the Big Daddy's Burger Bar in my home burb of Newtown (well, close anyway) in Sydney, where the restaurant has teamed up with the Dead Island 2 folks to present a couple of menu items inspired by the game.

Today comes word that Batman Arkham developer Rocksteady's latest superhero outing, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, has been delayed to February 2, 2024. Recently we got our first in-depth look at gameplay, and the reaction was lukewarm in how the game looked more like a looter shooter with microtransactions versus a successor to the Arkham trilogy.

Square Enix's forthcoming (more) mature Final Fantasy XVI had a lengthy State of Play session recently, highlighting the game's darker tone and its visceral combat, while also dropping in some new details on the larger world players can expect themselves to be immersed in.

"What if Call of Duty had spells and magic and fantasy?". That was a question that set veteran game designer, Bret Robbins, who worked at Sledgehammer Games on the Call of Duty franchise, on a quest to find out. But that's just one part of the game's overall makeup.

Immortals of Aveum is also much more than a 'run-and-gun' shooter with spells. It has all of the bombast and heavy storytelling of a CoD-like, but one look at its innovative and deeply-layered magic system tells an entirely different tale.

And it is EPIC.

Not only do we get to see more of the floating island-laden Hyrule in this long-awaited sequel, but there are also plenty of snippets of new engagements for link from new puzzles and environments, to new communities, allies and, of course, enemies.

Console releases these days usually arrive with two visual modes, Quality, and Performance. The former offers a native or close-to-native 4K resolution with additional visual settings running at 30fps.

Arkane's co-op vampire-slaying Redfall is set to launch on Xbox Series X|S with its Quality Mode only.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 is here, and we've got a full review of the stylish, sleek, and tiny Founders Edition, at least when you compare its physical size to the GeForce RTX 4090 or RTX 4080. So then, how does it perform? Well, the follow-up to one of the most popular GPUs from the GeForce RTX 30 Series (the RTX 3070) performs like the most talked about flagship GPU in recent history (the GeForce RTX 3080).

Demakes are love-letters to low-poly, low-fi experiences that take contemporary games and basically remakes them (or parts of them), as if they existed on machines far less powerful than the ones we have now. Naturally with Dead Space Remake and even to a lesser extent The Callisto Protocol running point on all things sci-fi survival horror, someone was going have a crack at a new modern demake in the same subgenre, and thanfully someone did.

If you're at all familiar with the anime and manga series, Attack on Titan, you'll know just how significant it is that the Omni-Direction Mobility Gear and the Thunder Spear are now coming to Fortnite, which seems like a very good fit, in particular with the ODM Gear as far as traversal goes.

In addition, the shop will now have the Captain Levi and Mikasa Ackermann outfits available to purchase, while the Eren Jaeger outfit is unlockable in Battle Pass.

And it's unique and comes from the Red Bull Gaming team based here in Australia, and will be taking place in May at the Star Casino, but will feature a different type of qualifiers in the lead up at the freshly-minted Fortress Sydney in Ultimo as well as online.

The concept, which isn't meant to be a part of a 'pro'-style circuit brings amateur players into an event with an opportunity to captain a team that can then feature actual pros and content creators.

Rhythm-based action games are a little bit the rage at the moment, and publisher Raw Fury wants some of that jam. Which is why it teamed up with developer Jaw Drop Games to give us Gun Jam, an action-FPS with a rhythm-reward gameplay bases, that is all about timing.

NVIDIA and CD Projekt Red are finally ready to debut the new Ray-Tracing: Overdrive Mode for Cyberpunk 2077, and the results are stunning to say the least.
