New Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2 info released

During Bitsummit 2021, Inti Creates announced that they were working on Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2. Since then, we’ve learned quite a bit more about the upcoming title. So let’s jump into it, shall we? Following the events of Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX, the world has earned its peace, with Copen deciding to focus his efforts on research now that the fighting was over.

The market is full of those super fast and expensive drives. But fret not, as we’re here to show you which drives are compatible and where you can get them.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human delayed until Feb 2022

Add another game that’s been delayed to 2022. This time around, Dying Light 2 Stay Human, a title that’s already seen several delays, has been pushed back. Again. Techland has recently sent out a round of emails stating that the game would be pushed from its 2021 release date and is still slated to be released on February 4th, 2022. In this email, a statement from Techland’s own CEO, Pawel Marchewka, made the hard choice to delay the game. This is what the full statement reads; Today, we have

Darkest Dungeon II early access heads to the Epic Game Store next month

Darkest Dungeon is a game that I loved and frustrated me to no end; I wanted more. So once I heard the game was getting a sequel, I was over the moon and started counting down the days until it would be released. And while we still don’t have a release date, the game heading to EGS as an early access title on October 26th, 2021, is the next best thing. Today, the Darkest Dungeon Twitter account has mentioned that Darkest Dungeon II is heading to the Epic Games Store as an early access title. Th

Cruis’n Blast Review – Arcade Racing with a Smile

Let it be known that I am a HUGE fan of arcade racers and a long-time player of Cruis’n Blast. I’ve been quite disappointed that the once-dominant genre is barely holding on. Obviously, the arcade scene in North America has been on the decline for years, and those arcades that do exist have switched up to redemption machines, which sickens me. So whenever I see an arcade racer being released for the home gaming consoles, I’m always excited. But when that release is of a game that I’ve spent more

Spectator Mode Podcast Ep. 105 – 2021 PlayStation Showcase report card

Your favorite gaming podcast is back. We are your favorite, right? Last week, PlayStation revealed all its cards and showed the world why everyone wants to play its games. The 40+ minutes event was a non-stop barrage of anticipated games, as well as a few games that we didn’t even about, such as Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine. Of course, you know we had to break down the coverage, game by game, and rate the show. So sit back, this is a longer than normal podcast, and get geeky with your favorite ban

SCUF spills the beans on an upcoming SCUF PS5 controller

SCUF is no stranger when it comes to customized gaming controllers, and now the company has announced they are working on a PS5 controller. I’m sure this comes as a sigh of release to those who have been loyal customers to SCUF for many years. Earlier today, SCUF took to Twitter to state, “The PS5 SCUF is coming! We’re making sure we get it right for our PS5 gamer family.” As for when this new SCUF PS5 controller will be released, we’ll have to wait for the official reveal. It looks like HexG

Deathloop on PC features Dualsense’s haptic feedback

If you’re one of the many who’ve been wondering if the PlayStation DualSense is supported in the upcoming Deathloop title, then you’ll be happy to know that it does. Deathloop is the second game that will support the haptic feedback feature. With Metro Exodus Enhanced being the first to do so, plus adaptive trigger support as well. According to IGN’s Matt Kim, the DualSense controller works just fine in Deathloop. Complete with haptic feedback support. This is fantastic news as I was hoping th

How many cars have been revealed in Forza Horizon 5?

When it comes to Forza Horizon, there’s one thing you can count on; lots of cars. Each game had a huge number of vehicles, and while we may not have driven them all, they were there for the picking. Forza Horizon 4 possessed over 450 different vehicles when it was released, with more added over the game’s lifetime, bringing that total up to 750. That’s a lot of cars. Will Forza Horizon 5 surpass that number? While it’s way too early to tell, but we do know how many cars have been revealed so fa

New Gran Turismo 7 screenshots

Thanks to yesterday’s PlayStation Showcase, we got a chance to see Gran Turismo 7 in action, along with a release date. Sadly, that release date is months away, and not until next March 4th, 2022. Hopefully, these screenshots can help you pass the time. Gran Turismo 7 is the 8th game of the series and looks to blow the prior games away. Gran Turismo 7 is in development by Polyphony Digital and releases on March 4th, 2021, for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

‘The Matrix Resurrections’ trailer finally drops and my mind is blown

We’ve waited for quite some time, didn’t we? But finally, the trailer for ‘The Matrix Resurrections,’ the fourth movie in the series, has been released online. I’ve been a massive fan of ‘The Matrix’ ever since a friend dragged me to a movie theater, one that doesn’t exist anymore (R.I.P). After the movie was over, I still remember we jumped back in line to see it again, followed by a very long dinner talking about the movie in a restaurant of other movie-goers who were doing the same. Damn, tho

Project Eve makes a showing during the 2021 PlayStation Showcase

While Project Eve was announced back in 2019, we haven’t heard or seen much of the game since then. That all changed today as Project Eve resurfaced during the PlayStation Showcase 2021 event and we’ve gotten a look at some new gameplay of the game running on the PS5. Project Eve is an action title that takes cues from several action titles, in development by ShiftUP. It’s the company’s first AAA title and they’re looking to make a big splash. That is, whenever the game is released. Project Ev

Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection is headed to PS5 and PC

Yes, the rumors were true, Uncharted is not only getting a remaster but it’s also headed to both the PS5 and the PC. While this isn’t the full collection of all of the Uncharted games, getting Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Lost Legacy is a nice get. And being remastered means we’ll see high-quality visuals, likely 60 frames per second and more. This marks yet one more PlayStation title heading to the PC and my prayers have been answered. Yep, Uncharted is headed to the PC. This brand-new remas

Gran Turismo 7 finally has a release date

Wow, I didn’t expect to get a release date for Gran Turismo 7, but that’s exactly what we got. Revealed during the 2021 PlayStation Showcase, the March 4th, 2022 release date for Gran Turismo 7 has been revealed. I’m completely over the moon, being the racing game nut that I am. I can’t even recall how many hours I’ve spent on all of the prior games, and I fully expect to do the same with GT7. We also got a glimpse of gameplay, along with some sexy cutscenes, and they all looked amazing during

Wolverine game revealed by Insomniac Games

If you had told me that we’d see a brand new game featuring Wolverine and from Insomniac Games. Well, I’d call you a liar. But that’s exactly what happened on the 2021 PlayStation Showcase. Starting with a cut to a bar that shows some signs of a fight, cutting over to a familiar figure who’s having a drink. We all know who that was, our favorite X-Man with the short temper, but who loves a good fight, Logan “AKA” Wolverine. I know fans of Wolverine have been asking for a new title for the longe

Does Far Cry 6 support Nvidia’s DLSS technology

I’ve seen people repeatedly ask if the upcoming Ubisoft open-world shooter, Far Cry 6, will support Nvidia’s DLSS technology. Instead of just answering this on Twitter, Reddit, and just about everywhere else, I figured it would be best just to spread a bit of knowledge on this topic. So, let’s ask that question one last time — hopefully. The short answer is nope! There’s no DLSS in Far Cry 6, but it doesn’t mean that there’s no hope for the game. If that’s all you were looking for, then you’re

Alan Wake Remastered Confirmed for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC

After being teased last week, Remedy has officially confirmed that the Alan Wake Remastered is coming to the PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. More importantly, after the teases of Alan Wake showing up in Control, perhaps this could mean that a sequel to Alan Wake could be in the works as well. Remedy’s creative director Sam Lake detailed exactly what the Alan Wake Remaster would include; 4K support for all platforms, the previous DLC released, and a new commentary track from Same Lake. There wasn’t a

Ubisoft wants you to know that there’s no charge for Far Cry 6 upgrades

Ubisoft wants to let everyone know that if you purchase a PS4 or Xbox One of Far Cry 6, you’ll be able to upgrade to the PS5 or Xbox Series X|S versions for free. I suppose after all that nonsense of PlayStation going back on its word about upgrades, and then walking that back is making other companies rethink their upgrade strategy. I don’t recall if Ubisoft had planned on making Far Cry 6 a free upgrade prior to this. Either way, a free upgrade is great news for anyone who isn’t able to upgrad
