Davide Soliani isn't just your typical Nintendo fan. 15 years ago, upon finding out that legendary Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto - the man that had made him want to create video games in the first place - was going to be visiting Italy to promote a new Zelda game, he decided he had to meet him in person.
The next historical Total War game will be set in 190CE China and focus on the Three Kingdoms period. If you've played Dynasty Warriors, you'll know it rather well.
Join me in the video above as I take an early look at the Tomb Kings, the first of the DLC races for Total War: Warhammer 2.
A few weeks ago now, a company called Boss Level Labs contacted Eurogamer, claiming to have created the world's first brain booster supplement for gamers. They called it GodMode. Now I felt that claim was a little generous, given I'd heard of an esports team in the States that were sponsored by a similar kind of product, but a couple of things really caught my eye in this email.
Mario Rabbids will be updated with a new competitive multiplayer mode as of tomorrow, allowing two players to go head-to-head locally. Best of all, it's free.
Earlier this month, Take-Two interactive chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick told investors to expect "recurrent consumer spending" to be a key part of every game the company published.
The first of the Total War Sagas, Thrones of Britannia, will be released next year. It focuses on the years following the Viking Invasion of Britain in 866 AD.
Total War: Rome 2 is set to receive a new "grand-scale" campaign pack at the end of the month, entitled Empire Divided.
The Overwatch team has been talking a lot about toxicity recently, with game director Jeff Kaplan explaining that negative behaviour from players is starting to have a real impact on the game and its development.
Eurogamer has become quite used to attending Blizzcon and asking the World of Warcraft team about their stance on Legacy servers. We're not so used to Blizzard actually having anything to say on that front.
PUBG's most iconic weapon isn't a shotgun, an assault rifle or an SMG. In fact, in most other contexts, you wouldn't even consider it much of a weapon at all, you'd probably just use it to make eggs. But here, in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, it carries a greater meaning, a higher purpose. Oh and also, if you stick it on your bum, it could very well save your life. I am, of course, talking about the frying pan.
This week sees the campaign maps for Total War: Warhammer 1 and 2 being combined in a new mode called Mortal Empires. If you own both games, this'll arrive as a free update on Thursday, offering the most detailed Total War campaign to date. It'll also be offering the longest time between turns, but so far, that seems a sacrifice worth making.
We really enjoyed Total War: Warhammer 2 at launch, but we're still waiting on arguably its most exciting feature: the 'Mortal Empires' campaign.
How much have you spent on your Steam account, do you reckon? Even if it's a rough estimate, try and come up with a figure; it'll be a useful one to have in the back of your mind as we delve into today's episode of Here's a Thing because I imagine, if you've purchased multiple titles over multiple years, that number likely isn't a small one.
Right, we've all been thinking it. It's a bit nuts that Rockstar went to the trouble of animating the sway of that horse's testicles in yesterday's trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, right?
Cities: Skylines' next expansion Green Cities will be released on 19th October and let you build eco-friendly cities that, importantly, no longer fill your rivers with horrible brown waste.
In October of 2008, Bethesda Game Studios released Fallout 3 and in doing so, changed the series forever. Gone were the 2D sprites, isometric camera and turn-based combat of the original games in favour of something the studio believed could appeal better to a larger, more mainstream audience. And well, the nearly five million units shipped during the game's launch week suggest they were probably right on that front, but still, there remains a substantial number of fans that to this day lament the loss of classic Fallout.
A delivery van carrying a number of Total War: Warhammer 2 collector's editions was robbed in Milton Keynes earlier this week, ahead of the game's launch on the 28th September.
Last month, Bertie and I visited Obsidian Entertainment to take a wander around the place and talk about some of the remarkable games they've helped create.
Earlier this month Bertie and I visited Obsidian Entertainment, the excellent, proudly independent role-playing game developer based in Irvine, California. There's plenty of history there, from the team's work on games like Pillars of Eternity, Alpha Protocol and Fallout: New Vegas to its genesis at Black Isle Studios.
War of the Chosen's first mission plays out exactly the same as in the original XCOM 2, which caught me a little by surprise. After being treated to a brand new intro cinematic that partly rewrites how the Commander is rescued in the opening moments of XCOM 2, I was expecting something new, something flashy. But there I was, once again, leading four under equipped rookies into Operation Gatecrasher and wishing they'd brought a few more grenades.
After yesterday's unbelievable announcement that the Skaven will be the fourth playable race in Total War: Warhammer 2, I've got a bit of early gameplay to share from their campaign.
Okay, so we've all known this was going to happen since the initial launch trailer, but here's the official announcement at last. The Skaven are, indeed, the fourth playable race in Total War: Warhammer 2.
Ahead of the release of XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, Firaxis has released one of its most anticipated features as a free download: the photobooth. Okay, well, it was one of my most anticipated features anyway.
Mario Rabbids looks pretty good. We've played it a couple of times now and I think the humour lands well, especially where Rabbid Peach is involved, and there's some genuine depth to its tactical gameplay.
