The Evil Within 2 Not Directed By Shinji Mikami

A new Evil Within is coming later this year, but fans might be surprised to learn that the series’ famous director, Shinji Mikami, is not helming the sequel. Why exactly Mikami is not working on The Evil Within 2 is unclear, but speculation is sure to run rampant in the coming weeks and months. Even though Mikami is not working on The Evil Within 2 as director, the project is still in good hands.

Super Mario Odyssey is a Return to Classic 3D Mario Joy

For our E3 2017 demo of Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo unlocked timed access to the Sand Kingdom and the Metro Kingdom. Along the way, though, players can also collect coins or even find moons, which are Super Mario Odyssey’s version of stars. All we will say is that if Nintendo has small one-off twists to gameplay throughout Super Mario Odyssey then fans shouldn’t worry about the game becoming rote. For an E3 demo, Super Mario Odyssey’s hands-on preview did everything it set out to do. Super Mar

Why Hunt: Showdown, Crytek’s gothic survival shooter, was our favorite game of E3

Gone is the Left 4 Dead inspiration, instead Hunt: Showdown is like if Evolve, Stalker, and Resident Evil 7 had a big, demonic baby. Trust us, Hunt: Showdown promises to be one survival game actually worth caring about. Hunt: Showdown punishes death by permanently erasing some of your progress, making death a seriously scary consequence of combat. Hunt: Showdown is as much a survival game as it isn’t. But I actually think Hunt: Showdown should use Early Access.

Monster Hunter: World is targeting 30 fps on consoles, but not necessarily on PC

Even if the first PC Monster Hunter game were to target 30 fps on low or mid-range PC hardware, that doesn't necessarily rule out 60 fps or better performance on PC. That said, we haven't confirmed any hard details about the PC version of Monster Hunter: World, except that it will be releasing after the console versions. Yesterday, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and director Yuya Tokuda relayed to PC Gamer (through a translator who combined their answers) that the Monster Hunter: World PC version will

E3’s security efforts spark online debate and conversation

One of the more concerning aspects of the new show, to some, was the lack of security. Fears about security aren’t unreasonable, as a heavily armed man was recently arrested at Phoenix Comicon. The Entertainment Software Association is the company that runs E3, and they feel confident of the event’s security. “Exhibitor and attendee safety is the paramount concern for ESA when it comes to E3,” the ESA’s Dan Hewitt told Polygon. E3 2017 did open, operate and close safely after three days without

Was Polybius real?

There probably is no definitive answer to video gaming’s greatest urban legend. Polybius, for which no ROM, no high score leaderboard, nothing exists, still lingers as a total fact in video gaming’s consciousness, and it’ll probably remain there as it is as impossible to disprove the game’s existence as it is to prove it. The Gaming Historian, here, does as good a job as anyone could explaining not only the origins of the Polybius myth but also the contexts that could give rise to it. Polybius e

Sonic Mania interview: How to remix a classic

Sonic Mania, Sega’s upcoming throwback to the iconic hedgehog’s 2D platforming roots, is an exciting project for classic Sonic fans for about a thousand different reasons, but central among them is the pedigree of its developers. Almost everyone involved in Mania’s development — in particular, Christian “Taxman” Whitehead, known for his proprietary Retro Engine and phenomenal Sonic 1, 2 and CD remakes, and Simon “Stealth” Thomley, known for the fangame Sonic Megamix and a frequent collabrator of
