• 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

  • So far, Epic has proven itself pretty good at listening to the community for new Fortnite Battle Royale ideas. Someone called Kody Keddie has created a petition to get Epic to “Add the ability to thank the bus driver before jumping out of the battle bus in Fortnite.” Read more Fortnite Battle Royale llama locations guideI do agree, Kody, especially speaking as someone from Britain, where awkwardly thanking the bus driver is practically enshrined within our sovereign constitution.

  • Activision revealed a slew of new information about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 this week, and players who enjoy mowing down hordes of the undead should be particularly pleased. Also revealed was the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Collector’s Edition, also known as the Mystery Box edition. Meanwhile, Zombies mode director Jason Blundell answered fan-submitted questions to provide some insight into Black Ops 4’s new take on the lore. It’s a Q&A very much aimed at longtime fan

  • All in an evening’s work for John McClane, the working-class everyman at the centre of John McTiernan’s modern classic and the primary reason why Bruce Willis is now one of Hollywood’s most bankable leading men. Aside from the spectacular mayhem and precision structure, though, it’s the close-up conflict between Willis’ singlet-sporting good guy and Alan Rickman’s sharp-suited villain that lifts McTiernan’s film on to another plane. Look at Die Hard close enough and you can see all kinds of code
    30 years of Die Hard: Christmas movie or not, John McClane's trial by fire is still the perfect action flick for our time

  • In August 2017, former Valve writer Marc Laidlaw shared – in his words – a ‘fanfic’ plot outline for Half-Life 3. Was Chet surprised that Marc would choose to go public with his vision for a Half-Life sequel? “I’ll let Marc speak for that”, says Chet. “I… I was surprised by it coming out”, he adds, “I’ll let Marc speak for that”. How a Half-Life sequel might have played out, according to former series’ writer Marc LaidlawI know only of Gertie Fremont, Elly Vaunt and her son Alex, Jerry Maas, and

  • Where do you begin on the subject of No Man’s Sky? Just take a look at Next, the latest of several free updates to be rolled out for No Man’s Sky over the past two years since launch. Murray describes how this community and its feedback loop has fed into the further development of No Man’s Sky as an evolving game. “One day I will feel that No Man’s Sky is finished, but I don’t feel like that at the moment.” he says. For the studio, this is just the start of another chapter in No Man’s Sky’s incr

  • If you’ve got any plans, scrap ’em, because Death Stranding may or may not be releasing on that date, if this new information – courtesy of Amazon UK – is to be believed. Orrr… perhaps Amazon knows something we don’t know. Amazon US, for example, still has Death Stranding down as releasing on New Year’s Eve this year, so it’s probable that the company knows as little as we do. No, the only person who really knows when Death Stranding is coming out is Hideo Kojima. Keep track of every big game
    Death Stranding will launch in early 2019, according to an Amazon listing… wait, what?

  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, a classic that’s now entering its 20th anniversary, depicts peace better than any other adventure game I’ve played in my lifetime. It takes the well known literary structure of the Hero’s Journey and invests deeply into exposition, making the save-the-world story more meaningful than ones that jump directly into disaster. It has you experience Hyrule in all its glory with a bustling Castle Town, a charming Kakariko Village, and thriving Zora and Goron tribes
    20 years later, no game depicts peace as well as Zelda: Ocarina of Time

  • In a parallel universe we never would have witnessed Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Instead, as he reveals, he could’ve swapped the trident for a chance at going face-to-face with Captain America. The man has had a lot of very interesting auditions over the years…“I met the Russo brothers,” Momoa tells EW, “Who are amazing. Jason Momoa’s come as close as anyone to joining the MCU and that, in a roundabout way, led him into the arms of the DCEU. It’s funny how these things work out, isn’t it?

  • It’s been a widely accepted truism that each of the Marvel movies adopts tropes of a different genre of film. Or as MCU head honcho Kevin Feige said in late 2015: “I don’t believe in the comic book genre. According to a recent SFX interview with director Peyton Reed, it’s a road trip movie. But of course, if our protagonists didn’t change or grow, it would be less of a road movie, more of a vacation slideshow.

  • I love seeing the stuff that comes out of itch jams.”How did the Epistle 3 game jam link to Half Life 3? “I was (and still am) a tremendous fan of the Half-Life games. “I think Twine is very much mischaracterised by both game fans and indie game developers,” Michet adds. “I figured I was already making an unauthorised Half-Life game, so I had nothing to lose by re-using Valve’s assets. A jam is about giving game developers the spark of an idea that will send them forward.

The latest addition to the massive online world will give you the chance to run your own nightclub, and feature real world music acts like Solomun, Tale Of Us, Dixon and The Black Madonna. “Los Santos is a city of bright lights, long nights and dirty secrets, and they don’t come brighter, longer or dirtier than in GTA Online: After Hours,” says Rockstar.

  • Despite releasing a new trailer and showing off extensive gameplay at E3 2018 just last month, Marvel and Insomniac have released a new trailer for Spider-Man PS4 at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. Last but certainly not least, Marvel announced a Spider-Man PS4 Pro bundle, which will launch alongside the game on September 7. According to the PlayStation Blog , Spider-Man on PS4 Pro can achieve “2160p dynamic 4K resolution … through temporal injection” which… dang if that doesn’t sound fancy. But r

  • If the item in question is an upgrade from your current gear, roll Need. Once the new expansion, Wrath of the Lich King was out, nobody wanted to run Black Temple anymore. At this point my character was powerful enough I could run Black Temple by myself, but I was also older, with more responsibilities, a job, and relationships to maintain. Every Tuesday night once the servers had been reset and my weekly lockout was up, I would run Black Temple by myself. Maybe you want to open every chest and

  • Overlord, the next movie from JJ Abrams, has finally gotten its first trailer. But far from being an obvious tie-in to the Cloverfield universe (as many suspected it would be), the film looks more like JJ had been playing some Call of Duty: WW2 Zombies mode and thought to himself, “What if this, but a movie?” Okay okay, that’s not totally fair; Nazi zombies have been A Thing since long before the most recent CoD. Speaking of Call of Duty movies, don’t forget that’s still a thing that’s happening
    JJ Abrams' Overlord looks like Hollywood turned Call of Duty's Zombies mode into a WW2 movie

  • When you fire a shotgun in Fortnite , the game individually simulates the path of each pellet – like a dozen or so tiny little bullets spraying out in an elongated cone. Sometimes that means you fire directly at somebody’s head and the game says “9 damage lol” as your pellets leave a cartoon outline around the target, especially before Fortnite season 5 tweaked that system, and sometimes it means you take out an entire squad of three and get possibly the most clutch Victory Royale in Fortnite hi

  • It’s fair to say that the notion of fan-based film projects based on big name nerd franchises has become rather tainted of late. So here are 11 fantastic, outsider projects that have each added something great to their particular movie, comics, or video game fandoms over the last 20 years. Oh, and wherever you think it’s going at the start, it really, really isn’t.
