Gory Metroidvania Blasphemous launches next month

After a wildly-successful Kickstarter campaign in 2017, Blasphemous is just about ready to launch, bringing its heavy metal version of gore-soaked religious iconography to PCs and consoles September 10. Presumably on the strength of its gory concept gifs, Blasphemous raked in more than $333,000 during its crowdfunding campaign, which isn't half bad considering developers The Game Kitchen were asking for $50,000. You play as the Penitent One, who as Fraser has observed is being punished with a me

Ready or Not is a sinister comedy with a point to make

In Ready or Not, “’til death do us part” is a more immediate struggle as Alex’s dynastic family has a unique way of initiating new members. A century ago, the Le Domas family made a deal with a literal devil to launch a board game empire. No bonuses, additional health care options, or threats are made by the family if the staff doesn’t want to help. The family plays the game because Le Bail promised they would die horrible deaths if they don’t kill the bride by sunrise. Even the children find a

Gears 5 Achievement References Former Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime

The game has finished development, and to celebrate, Xbox released the full list of Gears 5 achievements. And as it turns out, one of the achievements is a reference to former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. And now Reggie is being immortalized in Gears 5 through an achievement called "My Body is Ready" that references that very line.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection testing will resume ‘when it’s ready’

A public test for Halo: The Master Chief Collection's Firefight horde mode was supposed to come to PC in July, but it ultimately failed to materialize. 343 opted to hold back the testing due to "blocking bugs" that it simply could not get past before the end of the month. "'Blocking Bugs' are 'blockers' in that they are deemed severe enough to prevent a flight from functioning as needed," 343 explained in a new Insider Update. "Keep in mind that though we address, mitigate and solve 'blocking bu

You can pre-order a PlayStation 5 if you don’t mind paying over $1,000 in Swedish krona

If you want to secure a PS5 right now, one European retailer will be happy to oblige - though you will pay a bit of a premium.
