New World: Aeternum Demo Preview – Amazon’s MMO Heads to Consoles

Before attending the Summer Game Fest 2024, we received an invitation from Amazon to preview a game they planned to showcase. Although I was aware that Amazon was still developing games and already had its MMO, New World, I anticipated that a new title might be unveiled at the event. However, upon attending Amazon’s hands-on preview, I was surprised to discover that it wasn’t a new game at all. Instead, it was an updated version of New World, now headed to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S,

Summer Game Fest: Monster Hunter Wilds Demo Preview

One of the biggest games I’m looking forward to playing in 2025 has to be Capcom’s Monster Hunter Wilds, hands down. I’ve been drooling over this game ever since it was announced. Thanks to the Summer Game Fest, Scott Adams and I got to attend a Capcom event about the game and see live gameplay. It looks amazing in person, as it did in the trailers. Sadly, all we could do was watch, and we didn’t get a chance to play the game for ourselves. During this session, we were provided with lots of new

Going Hands-on with Deathsprint 66 at Summer Game Fest 2024

In the dystopian future of 2066, things have turned for the worse in many ways. So, to relieve the stress and frustration, the world has taken to pitting contestants called Clones and pit against each other on some pretty devious tracks. These games occur on circuits filled with life-ending traps and obstacles, where the winner lives on to play again. Think of it like the racing version of the Running Man movie. That’s the premise behind the upcoming title called Deathsprint 66, from Sumo Digita

Phantom Blade Zero Preview – Definitely Not a Soulslike

While I’m sure many of you have seen the title Phantom Blade Zero during several PlayStation showcases and, most recently, the Summer Game Fest 2024 showcase, I was fortunate to get some hands-on with the title. And I can confidently tell you that this title is not a Soulslike. I can also tell you that the game is lots of fun. I say this, as many had assumed that it was, based on what we previously saw and the game’s design, but with 20 minutes of game time under my belt, I can say that it isn’

Doom The Dark Ages Revealed at the Xbox Games Showcase 2024

During the Xbox Showcase, Doom The Dark Ages, the next chapter of the reboot of the Doom series, was revealed. Not much was shown outside of Doom guy riding some massive dragon, suiting up in a massive mecha suit, and doing what he does best. The title was announced for the Xbox Series X|S, PC, and PS5 and will be available on Game Pass. And yes, everything that has been rumored has been officially announced. The title isn’t slated to be released until 2025.

Monster Hunter Wilds Will Support Crossplay, PC Version Releases Alongside Consoles

It was revealed during the Summer Game Fest 2024 that Capcom’s upcoming Monster Hunting title, Monster Hunter Wilds, will support crossplay (it’s about damned time) and will also be released for the PC, right along with the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions. One of my biggest concerns and frustrations with Monster Hunter World and Monster Hunter Rise was that the game didn’t support crossplay. I’m sure if you’ve read my world here on The Outerhaven, you’d see I’ve mentioned it multiple times. I’

Fading Skies is an Impressive Open World 3D Platformer Action RPG

There’s been a resurgence of 3D platformers, and indie developers have been leading the charge. Once these titles were created by higher-name developers, recently, indie developers have been showing us that they have the same technical and creative chops to play with the big boys. That’s exactly what an upcoming title called Fading Skies has shown me. Fading Skies takes inspiration from 3D platformers of the past, with some Action RPG elements and gameplay that many of us have fallen in love wit

PlayStation VR 2 Headset Adapter Announced, Disables Most of PSVR2 Features

Not too long ago, PlayStation revealed that it was working on a way to get its PlayStation 2 VR headset, or the PSVR 2, to work with the PC. Today, it was revealed that the PSVR2 headset will interface with the PC thanks to the PlayStation VR2 PC adapter, which is both a long name and quite boring as well. Still, it will do what many have asked PlayStation to do for some time now. Starting on August 7, 2024, the PlayStation VR2 PC adapter will be available for sale at $59.99 on the PlayStation

Metal Slug Tactics Appears with a New Trailer, Fall Release Window and an Upcoming Demo

If there ever were a game that firmly belongs under the “we have no idea what happened to it” column, it would be Metal Slug Tactics. Many of us had no idea what happened to it, but now, we’re about to get bombarded with lots of information, including a recently revealed launch trailer and a fully playable demo that will arrive during Steam Next Fest very soon. For those unfamiliar with the game, Metal Slug Tactics is a new take on the iconic run-and-gun shooter from SNK. Debuting on the Neo Ge

DAEMON X MACHINA: Titanic Scion Makes an Appearance during the 2024 Marvelous Showcase

During the May 2024 Marvelous Showcase, DAEMON X MACHINA: Titanic Scion was shown again. This is a follow-up to the 2019 title, DAEMON X MACHINA, which I’ve been hoping to get more information on. Just like the 2023 Marvelous Showcase, DAEMON X MACHINA: Titanic Scion appeared at the end of the event, but it was different this time. This time, viewers were given a glance at what appears to be a mech graveyard. During the trailer, I could make out several immortals and arsenals from the first gam

What Happens to Your Steam Account When You Die?

A few days ago, an interesting post on Twitter involved what would happen to your Steam account when you finally bite the dust. Sure, it’s a morbid thing to think about, but that conversation really needs to happen. Let’s be realistic; we all will ultimately meet our end. A user on the popular gaming forum Resetera (delete12345) posted that they had asked a Steam customer service person about what would happen to their account when they die. That customer service person informed them that trans

Sure, the games tend to kick my butt, yet I keep coming back for more.

The Outerhaven interviews Francisco González of Grundislav Games

Point-and-click games are some of the oldest yet adored games in the gaming space. Francisco González of Grundislav Games is one such person who is passionate about these games but has developed quite a few of them, including some that you may have played, such as Rosewater. But thankfully, he’s not too busy to take some time out and speak with us about his love for the genre and other things in a recent interview. Sadly, we had to kill the video because of a technical issue that didn’t affect
