  2. When real-world motorsport went on hiatus during the first few months of lockdown, there were definite winners and losers as racing drivers took to virtual racing. Charles Leclerc, Alex Albon, Lando Norris and George Russell opened up F1 to a new legion of fans with their antics, the likes of Louis Deletraz and Scott McLaughlin bolstered their reputations, while others found their online behaviour left their own reputations in tatters. There was, however, one standout star for me. Step forward Emanuele Pirro - former teammate of Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost in his time at McLaren in the late 8

Last Stand Lighthouse - Reduced intensity of horde during the Scavenge event. View the full article
  5. Ah, Dan. Street Fighter's perennially useless Shoto wannabe has always been fun to play, but no-one takes him seriously. Well, he's back in Street Fighter 5 - and he actually looks... kinda cool? The truth about Dan (at least as he worked in Street Fighter 4) is that he's actually an okay character, but his moves look really, really stupid. His fireball is more hadoucan't than hadouken, his throw like pulling teeth, his taunts - yes, his many taunts! - pointless posturing. Dan is Street Fighter's joke character, a rubbish Ryu, a crappy Ken, but in the right hands he can win. Just about. During
  6. Bandai Namco has seemingly pushed a Tekken 7 Season 4 trailer early, and revealed Kunimitsu as a DLC character in the process. The video was published to Bandai Namco Brazil's YouTube channel before being taken down soon after, but of course the internet noticed. Tekken YouTuber YellowMotion took some screenshots of the trailer and published them on Twitter. We get the full roadmap for Season 4: alongside fan-favourite Kunimitsu is a new stage called Red Gates for Q4 2020. Then, in 2021, a new character will be released alongside a new stage. All this comes with new moves, a new user interface
  7. A FIFA pro has announced he won't buy any FIFA Points during the FIFA 21 season. Tim "Tim Latka" Schwartmann, who currently plays for German club FC Schalke 04's esports team, said he had decided to compete on the professional FIFA circuit this season without spending a penny on FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT). FUT is FIFA's most popular game mode and publisher EA's money spinner, pulling in billions in revenue through the sale of FIFA Points. FIFA Points are used to buy FUT packs, which contain a random assortment of virtual players. It's this mechanic that makes FUT a play-to-win competitive online
  8. Young Impa is playable in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild prequel Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Developer Koei Tecmo showed off Young Impa gameplay during a Tokyo Game Show 2020 broadcast. (Skip to 1:35:41 in the video below to see her in action.) Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity tells the story of the battle against Calamity Ganon, which occurred 100 years before Breath of the Wild. In Breath of the Wild, Impa is the elder of Kakariko Village, the village of the Sheikah people. She guides Link and talks about some of the events of the Great Calamity, which we will now get to see i
  9. Hot on the heels of last week's PlayStation 5 pre-order chaos comes a warning from Amazon that it may not deliver the Xbox Series X in time for launch. With Xbox Series X pretty much sold-out across the internet (the S is still widely available), retail behemoth Amazon has issued to those who have pre-ordered an Xbox Series X the same sort of email it sent out to PS5 pre-order customers, warning it may not get Microsoft's console out to them in time for launch "due to high demand". According to Amazon's email, the company is working with Microsoft to secure more stock. It may be the case that
  10. Destiny 2's install size will soon shrink significantly, but there's a catch: you have to re-download the entire game. Developer Bungie said the upcoming Beyond Light expansion will shrink Destiny 2's install size by 30 to 40 per cent. Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, including all updates, is currently 120GB on PlayStation 4, 111GB on Xbox One and 95GB on PC. After Beyond Light comes out, Destiny 2 will weigh in at between 59GB and 71GB, depending on the platform. In a post on Bungie.net, Destiny engineering director David Aldridge explained this reduced install size was made possible due to culling un
  11. Call of Duty: Warzone is getting fast-travel. As part of the launch of season six of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on 29th September, the battle royale's map gets a new subway system, known as the Metro. This lets players fast-travel between seven subway stations. Here's how it works: find one of the new subway stations, pop down the large staircase, hop over the turnstiles and head down the landing. There, turn left or right to find a staircase down to the station's platform. The platform is broken up into two halves, each side for a different direction of the line. Both sides have a small roo
  12. Moon Studios' Ori and the Will of the Wisps received critical acclaim when it released earlier this year and for good reason - its tight platforming action, gorgeous environments and evocative musical score serve as the foundation for one of the best 2D action games of the generation. It's a phenomenal follow-up to an already tremendous original game, and now, remarkably, that experience has transferred seamlessly to Nintendo Switch with few visual compromises. You can stack the game up against Xbox One X and it still looks great - and unlike many of these Switch miracle ports, it still runs a
  13. An update has been released for Left 4 Dead 2. - Fixed voice data overflow on servers. - Fixed carried prop collision to not interfere with bot movement. - Fixed laser-sighted weapon spawn exploit in the gun shop. - Reduced some ambient dialog frequency. View the full article
  14. Last week
  15. Last week, Ubisoft announced that Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil creator Michel Ancel had, after 30 years with the company, left to work at a wildlife sanctuary; now, however, a new report from French newspaper Libération sheds new light on his departure, claiming it followed an investigation into complaints accusing him of toxic leadership. According to Kotaku, based on its own translation of the Libération article, many of the complaints relate to Ancel's behaviour during the creation of Beyond Good and Evil 2, which is said to be directly linked to game's troubled development. Ancel's ma
  16. Although Cloud Streaming is still a no-go in its present guise based on Apple's current guidelines, Microsoft's newly updated Xbox app for iOS will enable users to stream from their console to iPhone or iPad when it launches soon. It's a feature that's already available to all users of the recently updated Xbox app for Android, and enables app users to remotely startup their Xbox One and stream their game library to their mobile device for free. Previously, the feature was known as Xbox Console Streaming and was available exclusively to Xbox Insiders. The Verge reports Microsoft's updated iOS
  17. Tomorrow marks Naughty Dog's inaugural The Last of Us Day (which replaces the previous Outbreak Day, due to current events), and in preparation for the main event, the developer has made a number of game-related announcements - revealing merchandise, freebies, as well as the news that its grim cinematic opus is getting the board game treatment. The Last of Us Board Game, as it's imaginatively known, is being made in collaboration with publisher CoolMiniOrNot (CMON), which was previously responsible for the likes of Bloodborne: The Board Game and God of War: The Card Game. As you'd expect, it'l
  18. An update has been released for Left 4 Dead 2. - Prevent a server crash when using voice chat. - Prevent gas can tunneling. - Fixed an animation bug with weapon melee. - Updated localizations - Updated Rocket Dude mutation. View the full article
  19. I am Dead, the endearing afterlife puzzler from developers Hollow Ponds and Richard Hogg (who've previously worked on the likes of Hohokum and Wilmot's Warehouse), will be making its way to PC and Switch on 8th October. Published by the ever-reliable Annapurna Interactive, I am Dead casts players as recently deceased museum creator Morris Lupton, who, with help from his equally dead dog Sparky, must save the tiny island of Shelmerston from volcanic destruction. What follows is, as Eurogamer's Christian Donlan discovered when he had an early glimpse at I am Dead last month, a sort of find the o
  20. IndiaFoxtEchoNew third-party developer and module Following the successful community mod and motivated by customer feedback, the software house 3rd party developer IndiaFoxtEcho has submitted their MB-339A for initial evaluation.

  22. Yesterday, Sports Interactive confirmed the release date for Football Manager 2021 (24th November on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store), but the announcement was overshadowed by a kerfuffle about why the game is not coming out on PlayStation when it is coming out on Xbox. This year, Football Manager returns to Xbox for the first time since 2007. Football Manager 2021 Xbox Edition is described as a "specifically tailored" version of the game, based upon the Touch series of Football Manager, fully customised for use with an Xbox controller. FM21 Xbox, as it's called, will be available from t
  23. Resident Evil Village - that's Resident Evil 8 - sounds like it may also release on current-gen consoles. That's despite the game initially being revealed as a PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S game. Speaking today during a Tokyo Games Show presentation, producer Tsuyoshi Kanda stated Capcom would "do our best" to create PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions too. Read more View the full article
  24. Key members of the Life is Strange team have opened a new branch of developer Dontnod in Montreal, Canada, and will work on a new, undisclosed IP. This Montreal office is being headed up by Life is Strange co-creators Luc Baghadoust and Michel Koch, and filled with "other members of the world famous Life is Strange development team", according to a press release today. This isn't the first we've heard of Dontnod's plans for a Montreal outpost. But it is the first we've heard the Life is Strange team has shifted to working there - and on something that's not Life is Strange. Read more View th
  25. Animal Crossing: New Horizons will sneak in its autumn update next week, on 30th September. Download it and you'll be able to get ready for Halloween... You'll be able to buy candy from Nook's Cranny and grow pumpkins to use as a crafting material for new spooky furniture items. There are new Halloween costumes to buy from the Able Sisters' shop, and some unhealthy-looking undead skin tones and eye colours to choose from to make yourself look creepy.

  26. Sega has used a Tokyo Game Show-related stream to make the most welcome of announcements, with the unveiling of a new Virtua Fighter project. The only problem is, we're not entirely sure what it is just yet. Sega CEO Haruki Satomi teased the project at the climax of a stream celebrating 60 years of Sega, details weren't forthcoming just yet about Virtua Fighter x esports, although a short trailer was shared. Will it be an online-enabled remake of one of the past games? Given Sega's done similar with the likes of Puyo Puyo esports - or Puyo Puyo Champions, as it's known over here - it seems li
  27. A trio of Metal Gear classics have been re-released for PC via GOG.com, alongside a handful of Castlevania and Contra games. Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance are all available now, priced £4.79 for the first Metal Gear, and £7.19 each for the others. A £4.79 five-pack of Castlevania and Contra games is also available. The Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania and Contra bundle includes Castlevania, Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest, Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse, Contra and Super C. Read more View the full article
  28. Spellbreak has a pretty appealing pitch: it's Battle Royale but everyone's a wizard. This means that in traversal you can loft yourself into the air for a short period, which meshes well with your surprisingly brisk running speed. It means that you have a huge fantasy isle of Hyrulian hills and honeyed stone to gad about. And it means that when you reach the last two minutes of every Battle Royale game where people emerge into the same tiny patch of ground everyone's a wizard. Seriously! These final moments. I'll be standing on a bluff, wizarding around, and then a huge wall of flame will emer
