The milestone Star Citizen alpha 3.5 update arrives for backers this weekend, and it's headline feature, among many, is playable female characters.
"The really cool feature that surprised us all was wall jumping."
Doom doom doom!
Oh gee oh gee oh gee oh gee - Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft 2 are now available on GOG.com!
Standing before me is the caretaker of a cemetery. He's old, dirty and lecherous, and he is accused of murder - of decapitating a young lady and selling her bleached skull to science. Her body was found in his woodshed and, frankly, it doesn't look good for him. Everyone expects the guillotine, and for him to be decapitated in kind. But something's not right.
Larian has announced a new Divinity: Original Sin game but it is not, before you lose your potatoes, Divinity: Original Sin 3.
Hypnospace Outlaw is an early internet simulator, a recreation of the world wide web from the 1990s - a thing not everybody used all the time. But it's also a detective game with a story rippling through it, and there's a mystery here to solve. And you solve it by surfing - rifling through the internet as it once was, looking for clues.
Hands up how many of you used to pick spiders off their webs, and from dark corners in sheds, and plonk them overnight in a Millennium Falcon toy - with removable roof - so in the morning you could see which one emerged triumphant?
New Overwatch hero Baptiste will be released for players on all platforms on Tuesday, 19th March. As with all new heroes, there will be a one week period after his arrival before he is available for Competitive Play.
The absolute last thing I want to do when landing on a beautifully unspoilt, lush and exotic alien planet is build a clunking, grey, smog-spewing factory. But that's what Satisfactory makes you do, that's what it's about, and it's both horrid and inspired.
There are free treats coming to Divinity: Original Sin 2 in the shape of 'gift bags'.
GOG and Blizzard have brought Diablo 1 back from the dead, and it's available - for the first time ever on digital distribution - right now (£7.89/$10)!
You can't do anything on one screen in Objects in Space. It's not a space game like Elite: Dangerous or Star Citizen, where you sit in a sleek cockpit with every control at your fingertips. In Objects in Space you have to get up and move around. The map is on one terminal, comms on another, emails another, battery management another, repairs another... It's as if you're flying an old submarine, where there are different panels and buttons for everything. Only here, you do it all alone.
Satisfactory, the new game by Goat Simulator developer Coffee Stain Studios, will launch in early access 19th March, exclusively on the Epic Games Store (it is exclusive for 12 months - Coffee Stain has done a very nice Q&A video discussing the decision).
Techland has decided to close the old Polish distribution arm of the business and focus entirely on developing games - Dying Light 2 of course among them.
Do you remember the 1980s Dungeons & Dragons cartoon, the one where a bunch of kids went on a D&D fairground ride which magically transported them into a D&D fantasy world? (Didn't happen at my local fair, I tell you.) They became characters in the game: a boy barbarian, the hunky teenage ranger, the nerdy wizard... It looked like fun. But those kids, they never found a way out. Every episode for three seasons they searched to no avail, and then the series abruptly ended, incomplete. They were trapped. It's like someone locked the Narnia cupboard. The kids were never seen again. What happened to them?
It's confirmed: the next new Overwatch hero will be medic Jean-Baptiste Augustin - Baptiste for short - as teased last week.
Heaven's Vault doesn't look like much to begin with. It feels simple and sparse. The graphic novel idea - illustrated 2D characters in a rendered 3D world - sounds nice, but the combination of characters being only partially animated, moving from still-pose to still-pose, and the environments being basic, feels awkward and, to be brutally honest, a bit cheap. There's nothing - no cinematics, barely a voice over - to grab you. Yet, from the moment Heaven's Vault began, I was gripped.
The Overwatch tease-machine has whirred into life again, and at the centre of attention is a character - possibly the game's 30th hero - called Jean-Baptiste Augustin.
Alfonso Ribeiro, the actor known for playing Carlton in the TV series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, has hit a major stumbling block in his legal action against Fortnite and Epic Games, and 2K Games and the NBA 2K series. He's been refused copyright of the Carlton dance.
If you liked Fallout: New Vegas, chances are you'll be excited for Obsidian's new game The Outer Worlds, because it looks like New Vegas meets BioShock in space.
Crossroads Inn, a fantasy tavern simulator - probably the best game idea in the world - has taken to Kickstarter.
Six years ago, a nice man called Simon Read released a mobile version of a PC football series he was about to give up on, and New Star Soccer went on to change his life. On Google Play alone it's been downloaded more than 10 million times, and the App Store will be similar if not higher. It was a big success. And the long-awaited follow-up arrived last year.
"I forget everything between footsteps.
Very promising Hotline-Miami-meets-Jazz-and-apes game Ape Out has been delayed, but only slightly. Devolver will now release it 28th February rather than 7th February, and that's on PC and Switch.
Ubisoft found itself in hot water overnight after sending a promotional email for The Division 2 declaring, in the subject line, "Come see what a real government shutdown looks like in the private beta."
Which radio station do you tune into? Is it Heart in the UK, or BBC Radio something or other? Is it Z100 in New York, or KIIS FM in Los Angeles? (I had to Google those.) Or, is it Truckers.FM?
