Devil May Cry 5’s coming in spring 2019 and it stars Nero, Dante, and a wise-talking mechanic

Devil May Cry 5 is real, it stars Nero, and it's coming in spring 2019. Don't worry, the teaser ended with a quick appearance from original Devil May Cry protagonist Dante as well. But still, nice of Microsoft to give Nero and friends a great big stage to do their debut on, right? Oh, and one last thing: despite the fact that Microsoft now owns Ninja Theory, which developed DmC: Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 5 is being built internally at Capcom. We'll just have to wait and see what Ninja Theory

Watch the new John Wick 3 trailer and don’t miss its Matrix Easter egg

The second John Wick 3 trailer skips past all pretense and outright confirms that this is the Keanu Reeves-led Matrix successor you've been waiting for. Like… like John Wick driving his puppy home for the last time in the first movie, oh God, sorry. At 1:28, Fishburne reminds us that his character (an underworld king who was first introduced in John Wick Chapter 2 ) still stans for Reeves/Neo/Wick: "You think you can take John Wick? We don't have too much longer to wait until The Matrix 6 AKA Jo

Epic on pulling Metro Exodus from Steam: ‘We don’t want to do that ever again’

When Epic announced that Metro Exodus would be a year-long Epic Store exclusive, it was close to release and had already been taking pre-orders on Steam. A panel of Epic Store leaders were asked during an Epic Store Q&A at GDC 2019 today if, given how much rage the move caused, they'd ever do something like that again. Steve Allison, head of the Epic Games Store, responded immediately: "We don't want to do that ever again." Epic says that Metro Exodus sold pretty well despite the anger, but Alli

Monster Hunter: World high resolution texture pack is coming in April

Monster Hunter: World will get a significant facelift in April in the form of a new high-resolution texture pack that will be released as part of the 5.2 update. The pack will be available as a free update from Steam, but it'll eat up a good chunk of real estate on your drive—a minimum of 40GB of free storage space is required—and you'll need at least 8GB of VRAM to use it. You can see the difference in an included comparison image, and it definitely looks better. Like John Travolta with a five
