If you’re itching for some more souls-like action, Leenzee Games from China has revealed 18 minutes worth of gameplay from their upcoming title Wuchang: Fallen Feathers. Wuchang is heavily inspired by previous souls-like titles, particularly Bloodborne, and will be published by BilliBilli for consoles and PC. The action here is looking like it’ll need a lot of polish, but its 2024 target will definitely give it the time to impress us even further. Check out the gameplay reveal trailer below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPo73-CTqsU The reveal has been met with a lot of criticism, which revolves around the fact that it seems to be copying a lot of things from other similar titles, and some players have noticed that even some of the same sound effects are being used. Here’s a short description of the game: Set in the chaotic final years of the Ming Dynasty, WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers is an exploration of…

NBA 2K22 Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=va83v7wzyHc It’s that time of the year once again where hoop junkies near and far gather for another installment in the long-running NBA 2K franchise. Over the years, the game has been highly criticized for its marginal updates that didn’t offer much apart from the usual roster changes, a new MyCAREER story, and better-looking sweat. While NBA 2K21 was the first to take advantage of the current-gen hardware from Sony and Microsoft, we felt that it was more of an incremental update that didn’t quite hit the mark. Considering that it has been almost a year since the current-gen consoles have been released, 2K had a full year to improve on its previous outing and it seems that the features they implemented last year laid the groundwork for a more ambitious outing in NBA 2K22 that cements it once again as the best hoops game around. Welcome…

Following the previous Capcom Collab that saw Akuma make his Monster Hunting debut, Capcom has announced that the next Monster Hunter Rise collab will be with none other than Mega Man. Or rather, with Rush, in particular! Starting September 24, a Palamute layered armor set in the form of Rush will be available as an event quest reward, giving players some neat gimmicks like bouncing off the spring-loaded platform on his back to reach higher places. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7qChDkyjRw Another Capcom Collab is scheduled later this year but no details on that yet, so we’ll have to wait for an official announcement from the team. Monster Hunter Rise is now available for the Nintendo Switch.

Some pretty cool and classic Castlevania titles could be making a comeback if a Taiwan Digital Game Rating is to be believed. As spotted by Gematsu, a Castlevania Advance Collection rating has been spotted for the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. While previous ratings for the same title have been seen before, this latest rating shows the specific platforms that the title will be coming out on. There’s no word yet as to what the collection contains, but the expectation seems to include the classic Game Boy Advance titles – Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, and Aria of Sorrow. This isn’t the first time a rating was spotted that led to an eventual release. Back in September of last year, a rating for a Metal Gear PC release was also spotted, leading to a release on GOG.com a few days later.

Just last month, the new PS5 model (CFI-1100B) was investigated by Youtuber Austin Evans, pointing out the fact that the mysterious decrease in weight was due to a significantly smaller heatsink. Around 300 grams lighter, to be more exact. A few quick tests by Evans showed that the exhaust was hotter when measured using a thermal camera, which led to worries that the newer model was “worse” than the launch unit. Since then, various reports have popped up speculating on whether performance will be affected by the design change, but level-headed members of the community waited patiently for more comprehensive testing. Both Digital Foundry and Gamers Nexus, a couple of well-known and trusted sources of information, have recently put the new PS5 model through its paces, employing extensive testing with some very complex setups that would finally put the discussion to rest. You can view both videos below, tackling some…

Update: Battlefield 2042 has been delayed to November 19, 2021 as officially announced by EA. The new date, which is less than a month from its original release of October 22, is due to “unforeseen challenges” caused by the Pandemic.
