Overcooked 2: Night of the Hangry Horde makes you feed the undead

Overcooked 2, one of friendship's greatest trials, has been besieged by undead snacks in the new DLC, Night of the Hangry Horde. To feed the waves of vengeful food, you'll be able to use a guillotine—for chopping ingredients, not necks—and a coal furnace. That's on top of the eight kitchens you get with the horde mode. Chris Schilling called it an entertaining but familiar sequel in his Overcooked 2 review, but the new mode sounds pretty novel. Night of the Hangry Horde is on Steam and GOG for £

The best Warhammer 40,000 movie ever is being made by one dedicated fan

For the past year a professional contract 3D artist has been quietly making the best Warhammer 40,000 film yet created. Astartes, funded by this Patreon, is planned to be a five-part CGI miniseries about a small scale ship-to-ship engagement between a Space Marine detachment and some traitorous guardsmen. Bolters, plasma pistols, and lascannons are spot on—shout out to the Space Marine that passes all his armour saves in part three. The Space Marines, silent and indomitable, are the quick tactic

Fallout 76’s battle royale mode preview will stick around a while longer

We got a sneak peek of Fallout 76's Nuclear Winter following its announcement at E3. of Nuclear Winter will remain online a while longer. That's cool, especially since Fallout 76's battle royale mode is a lot of fun because it's got so much of Fallout's DNA running through it. Bethesda didn't say if it will simply remain playable until the rest of Nuclear Winter shows up this summer, or if it might be taken offline at some point. As a reminder, you can try Fallout 76, both the main game and batt

How Doom Eternal avoids the reboot’s multiplayer mistakes

id is keen to avoid the same missteps in Doom Eternal's recently announced Battlemode, and it has a clear idea of why the reboot's PvP shootouts didn't work. "Thematically and just from its fundamental design story, it was a little bit of Halo, a little bit Doom, a little bit of Quake, but it was none of what people loved from the campaign," executive producer Marty Stratton told us at E3. "[Doom multiplayer] had no real pacing," said creative director Hugo Martin. "There's no meta, there's no r

Don’t expect Xbox 360 games to run on PC anytime soon, though Phil Spencer says ‘never say never’

Well, bad news: Not only was Microsoft not testing out Xbox One games natively on PC, but Xbox 360 emulation isn't likely a near-term thing, either. Now for the bit I was hoping for—that original Xbox and Xbox 360 emulation on PC? "I'd love to run PowerPC games on Windows, that's the 360 ones," Spencer said. "It was hard to get those PowerPC games to run on the fixed spec machine that we have with Xbox One. Honestly we'd probably stream than before we try to run them natively, and I don't know i
