Crikey! I remember spending whole days in Alterac Valley in World of Warcraft, and now the beloved old PvP battleground is being turned into a new map for Heroes of the Storm.
Do you remember POGs? Cast your mind way back. They were the thin cardboard circles which spread across playgrounds like nits in the 90s before being abruptly banned by schools - something to do with fights and being a bit close to gambling for comfort.
Polish company CI Games has found a new team to partner with on Lords of the Fallen 2, a sequel previously in limbo.
EA has teased three whole seconds of new Anthem footage ahead of E3 this month, plus told us what to expect from BioWare's big new multiplayer game at the show.
I loved Frostpunk (read my review if you like) but it was a bit thin, so 11 bit Studios revealing the downloadable content coming this year is very welcome news. Better yet, it will all be free.
World-conquering battle royale game Fortnite appears to be heading to Nintendo Switch.
UPDATE: A new report suggests that Bethesda's freshly unveiled Fallout 76 is an online survival RPG, heavily inspired by the likes of DayZ and Rust.
UPDATE: And it's official. Team Sonic Racing is coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One this winter, with Sumo Digital focussing on the Sonic universe in a racer that places an emphasis on playing as a team. It'll support 12 players online with four-player splitscreen on all formats, and will also feature customisation, Wisps borrowed from Sonic Colours that enable power-ups and an Adventure Mode for a single-player experience. 15 characters will be present at launch, and you'll be working in tandem with your team to win events. We'll have a little more in the not-too-distant future, but for now sate yourself with this announcement trailer.
Holy macaroni now Intellivision is making a comeback. Intellivision, as in Atari's old rival, as in the old video game console. But it won't be a rehash of the old machinery, it will be... something new.
Have you heard the one about Lichtspeer? I doubt it, and that's the point. While the world listens to the stories of the games which made it - the Minecrafts, the Fezs, the Braids - a thousand other stories go unheard. For every overnight millionaire there are a countless many for whom dreams and livelihoods are swept away by the relentless oncoming wave of new games. We are alright, a new documentary by Polish filmmaker Borys Nieśpielak, is the brutally ordinary story of indie game development.
Get Even developer Farm 51 has announced a serious-about-realism multiplayer shooter called World War 3. In one mode it's like Battlefield, with big battles and tanks, and in the other, a battle royale game like PUBG.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus was a rip-roaring science-fiction romp through an alternate history. It was, as Edwin more eloquently said in his Wolfenstein 2 review, "vicious, affecting, witty, spaced-out, crude, inventive, morbid and for the most part, a success."
Apparently speedrunning - racing to finish a game as fast as possible - is quite popular. Of course it is - where have you been? Haven't you heard of the charity speedrunning marathons Games Done Quick?
I love Broforce and I'm constantly looking for games like it - fast and fun arcade games I can play with someone else at home. Well, one was released yesterday which fits the bill.
Senior figures from four of the world's biggest developers - Bungie, Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica and Blizzard - have talked about their studio's take on crunch.
When the huge Earth Dragon roars in God of War there are an incredible number of sounds hitting your ear. After all, we don't have a living dragon to simply capture the sound from, so developer Sony Santa Monica had to create it itself.
CD Projekt Red is expanding. The main Warsaw office has ballooned and the company has opened two other studios in Poland, one in Wrocław and one in Kraków - which is where I am now.
We are living in a new golden age of video game music, and by way of a celebration there will be a lavish orchestral concert at the Royal Albert Hall at the end of the month (Wednesday, 30th May). It's called PlayStation in Concert and will feature an 80-piece Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, plus City of London Choir, bringing PlayStation music to life. Oh, and a light show.
The relentlessly imaginative role-playing game Torment: Tides of Numenera can be played for free this weekend on Steam, and it's heavily discounted from £35 to £14 should you wish to buy it.
A Definitive Edition of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One in August - a three-hour demo is actually available now on Xbox One, for free, via Game Preview - and to PC as a free upgrade (although it will be considered a separate game). It's a similar deal to the Enhanced Edition for Divinity: Original Sin 1. We knew that; what we didn't know was how DOS2 will be enhanced, but now we know more.
Apparently STALKER 2 is happening and will be released in 2021.
The Metro Exodus release date has been moved back from autumn 2018 to Q1 2019.
A leaked image image of what is reportedly a new accessibility controller for Xbox has appeared.
No sooner have I found a way to convince the chief snake person of my unique soul-seeing powers as a Watcher than I am touching the mountainous glowing crystal he was guarding and talking with a god, the one everyone is after - the one who has
There's been a cardboard explosion. Some kind of arts & crafts volcano has erupted in my home and spewed detritus everywhere. I can't move for tiny bits of cardboard sticking to my feet, hitching a ride into other rooms, and I've got a pile of discarded cardboard templates this high to try and ram into a shared recycling bin. Woe is me. My vacuum will never suck this lot up. Why did I bother with Nintendo Labo?
How did it come to this? Public executions are being made in the name of a divine ruler. Propaganda hangs from buildings. None of us in our right minds would implement these regimes, and yet in Frostpunk I did. What drove me there? I didn't suddenly lose my mind; I did it because it was better than the alternative. I did it to survive.
Frozen city-building game Frostpunk, the newest by This War of Mine developer 11 bit Studios, has raced out of the gates, shifting a quarter of a million copies in 66 hours.
