Netflix Expands The Animated Castlevania Universe

Today during Netflix’s Geeked Week, the company announced a new animated series that will expand on its Castlevania universe. If you’ve been watching the series, as of Season 4, our heroes triumphed over evil and finally earned themselves a break. During this happy time, Sypha and Trevor had a child that would be the catalyst in this new animated series. While this new series is still in production, we know that this will focus on Richter Belmont and Maria Renard. Fans of the Castlevania show w

Here’s All The Dark Souls References I Found In The Elden Ring Gameplay Trailer

Yesterday, Bandai Namco and Fromsoftware made me a very happy person by finally showing off some gameplay from the upcoming title, Elden Ring. While I thought that most of what we saw was very similar to Fromsoftware’s Dark Souls series, I suppose there’s a reason for that. The head honcho of the series, Hidetaka Miyazaki, did mention prior that he wanted to do a game that approached Dark Souls in a different light. And given everything we’ve seen with Elden Ring (so far), it looks like this is

Yep, Looks Like Elden Ring Will Feature Co-Op

If you’re one of the many who were asking if Elden Ring would feature some sort of co-op gameplay, it looks like you’re in luck. While Bandai Namco and Fromsoftware didn’t come out and say anything, the gameplay trailer sure the heck did. While nearly every Fromsoftware game starting with Demon’s Souls featured a co-op element, I don’t expect Elden Ring to be any different. The only game that bucked the trend was Sekiro, and that was mainly due to it being originally designed as a Tenchu follow

Mortal Shell Set To Receive New DLC Called “The Virtuous Cycle”

There’s more here than meets the eye. During IGN’s Summer of Gaming, the developers behind the indie Dark Souls-ish title, Mortal Shell, has announced some good news. After months of waiting, they have finally confirmed that a new DLC for Mortal Shells is being worked on. Which is fantastic news for me as I enjoyed the hell out of Mortal Shell. This new DLC is called Mortal Shell The Virtuous Cycle, and that’s all we know. The teaser video isn’t very long, clocking in at 45 seconds. And after

When And Where To Watch The Next Battlefield Reveal

We’re less than an hour away from EA’s and DICE’s reveal of the next chapter in the Battlefield series. For now, we’re calling it Battlefield 6, but given all the cryptic info that’s been released over the past few days, it’s safe to say it won’t be officially called that. If you’ve missed those hints, there have been messages sent to gaming influencers, screenshots of scrambled messages, and now, the Origin storefront is leaking high-quality screenshots. EA and DICE are going all out with this

Ever since the company started producing mini-arcade machines, they have been picking up several huge licenses—Street Fighter, X-Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to name a few. However, the Simpsons arcade game, one that everyone kept asking for, was never part of that gr

Battlefield 2042 Officially Revealed, Here’s What We Know So Far

Alright, EA and DICE have officially revealed the next Battlefield title, Battlefield 2042. And while the leaks were already running wild, they didn’t suppress my excitement for the reveal. So what did we end up with? Not a live stream that I was hoping for, but we did get an action-packed trailer that served as the launching point for Battlefield 2042. With no narration, we’re left to imagine a few things on our own. But one thing is for sure, this isn’t a game that’s based in the past, and no

As you all know, the Epic Game Store tends to give out a free game every so often. This time around, the free game is one of the better ones; Remedy Entertainment’s Control. A fantastic adventure and one of my favorite games of all time – there’s a reason for that. Anyway, getting back to the story, Control is currently free until June 17th, 2021.

Sega Adds Room Search To Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown

One of my biggest issues with Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown was the matchmaking. In a word, it stinks, and I was sure to highlight that in my review of the game. There was no way to search for friends or specific rooms. You had to search over and over and pray that you find something. Thankfully, Sega has released an update that allows players to search for rooms. To access this new search function, you’ll need to set up a new room. Once that’s done, press triangle, and it will show a room

Kojima Productions Teases Death Stranding Director’s Cut

During the 2021 Summer Game Fest, Hideo Kijima teased the world with a look at an upcoming Death Stranding Director’s Cut. A game that was rumored to be in existence but was never confirmed. Well, now it is. The little bit that we saw had Sam Porter Bridges looking over an area swarming with enemies. Honestly, at first glance, it reminded me a bit of Metal Gear Solid. There was even a box that Sam Porter Bridges had the idea of hiding in to sneak past several enemies. An area that looks straigh

This is the first time we’ve heard about the game since it was originally revealed way back in 2019. Elden Ring is a joint project b

Scarlet Nexus Is Not Headed To Xbox Game Pass

At least not yet it isn’t Earlier this week, several rumors surrounding Bandai Namco’s upcoming action RPG title Scarlet Nexus started circulating the internet. While I won’t get into where the rumor started, Bandai Namco quickly squashed the rumor. According to Video Games Chronicle, the company denied having any plans to bring Scarlet Nexus to Xbox Game Pass. “We have no plans to bring Scarlet Nexus to Xbox Game Pass at this time and are excited for its launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One,

Hogwarts Legacy, Gotham Knights, And Suicide Squad Won’t Be At E3 2021

We’re a few days away from E3 2021, and so far, it looks like Warner Bros. will be a no-show for several of its most anticipated titles. According to Techradar, a WB spokesperson reached out to them and confirmed that Hogwarts Legacy, Gotham Knights, and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will all be absent during E3 2021. The only WB Games title that will make an appearance is the Left For Dead spiritual successor, Back 4 Blood. A title that already looked incredibly polished based on our

Stadia Support Coming To Chromecast With Google TV On June 23rd

Let’s face it, Stadia has been on a steady decline, despite what Google has been claiming. However, this recent bit of news is encouraging. Google has announced that the Stadia will be supported on Chromecast with Google TV devices, and several TVs and set-top boxes. No longer will you need to own a Stadia dongle to take advantage of the service – or will once June 23rd, 2021 gets here. This is an interesting 180, as Google has announced back in 2020 it had no plans to bring Stadia to the Chrom

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake Won’t Be At E3 2021

Another eagerly awaited title won’t make an appearance at E3 2021. Ubisoft has delayed the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake until sometime in 2022. Originally slated for a January 2021 release date, the title was eventually delayed until March 2021. Then delayed again, this time indefinitely. It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard anything about the game. Today, Ubisoft tweeted out that the game won’t make a showing during the Ubisoft Forward, which takes place during E3 2021.

Devolver Digital’s Showcase Taking Place During Summer Game Fest

While we know that Devolver Digital was hosting an event this summer, we didn’t know when. Was it going to be during E3? The Summer Game Fest? When? Well, wonder no more as Devolver Digital has mentioned that its event will take place on June 12th at 1:30 PM PDT / 4:30 EDT. The times were confirmed via a tweet from the official Summer Game Fest. And here I was thinking this would take place during E3. Though, with so many shows happening during the same times, the lines have been blurred. At le

New Performance Modes Added To Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart

We’re less than a week away from the release of Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, and it’s been a long time coming. Yet, there was a bit of nonsense regarding the frame rate and resolution – something about it being in 4K but only running at 30 frames per second. Obviously, this didn’t sit well with Insomniac Games, and they decided to speak up about the matter. Actually, there did more than speak up; they put up. In a recent tweet, Insaomic stated that players would have access to both a Performa
