25 years of Final Fantasy VII has led us to this anniversary showcase, where we received a ton of surprises, both expected and unexpected. While we wait with bated breath for the future of the Remake, we can officially confirm that the second part of the FFVII Remake series is coming out next Winter!

Veering away from projectiles and ranged-based attacks found in 2D fighters at the time, Virtua Fighter was one of those games that really paved the way for 3D-based fighters. Its latest installment, Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, released last year for the PS4 to the delight of fans. Since then, many titles have followed in its footsteps over the years. Titles like Fighting Vipers, Battle Arena Tohshinden, Tobal No. 1, and Soul Edge/Soul Calibur encompassed the 3D fighting space and while many have come and gone, one stood out from the rest. With a memorable cast of diverse fighters, many of whom have become iconic video game personalities, Tekken has cemented its position as one of the most celebrated fighting games today. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, then, that these two icons would come together in some way, and we have that in the form of the Virtua Fighter…

As part of the ongoing not-E3 festivities, we once again shine the spotlight on some fantastic Indies courtesy of the Tribeca Games Spotlight. This year’s lineup is just as fantastic as last year’s, with some of our picks including A Plague Tale Requiem and Oxenfree II. The Tribeca Games Spotlight is quite different from other game shows in that it is more of a deep dive into these games, their concept, and their gameplay. I like the odd cinematic as much as the next guy, but at the end of the day, the important thing about games is how they play. Here’s a quick recap of the Tribeca Games Spotlight 2022!

The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase is finally done and it surely was one hell of a showcase for Team Green. Despite the delays that plagued 2022, pushing back some of their biggest titles to next year, the showcase featured a heavy dose of gameplay and release dates that really impressed. And with most, if not all, showing up on Game Pass day one, Xbox players will have a lot to look forward to. We finally get a HUGE gameplay reveal for Starfield, along with other good looks at Diablo IV, Redfall, Forza Motorsport, and much more. There were even some surprises too, like Persona 3/4/5 coming to Xbox as well, along with Hideo Kojima making an appearance to announce his partnership. But enough talk, let’s head straight to the recap, here’s everything that was announced during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022! Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022…

In anticipation of the upcoming Saints Row Reboot, Volition and Deep Silver are coming up with a demo called the Boss Factory that will give players the ability to play around with the outrageous customization suite of the game. The demo is scheduled to release *checks notes* today (!) and is free to download on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC via Epic Games. We got to try out the demo ahead of time and while it isn’t actual gameplay of the upcoming title, the customization suit really goes all out into some crazy territory that can result in some of the best-looking (or weirdest) bosses around Santo Ileso. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHHgTmdjyl0 Related – Read our Saints Row Gameplay Preview Coming from the previously released customization trailer of the game, fiddling around with the Boss Factory settings may feel basic at first glance.

Eternights, the upcoming action-dating sim from Studio Sai games, is set to make its release on the PS4, PS5, and PC in early 2023. Coming from its reveal during Sony’s State of Play livestream, the game caught the attention of a lot of people thanks to its polished art and genre combination.

Aika has been posting status messages about her excitement leading to the State…

PlayStation’s State of Play is now over, and despite all the leaks that have been making the rounds, the livestream came up with some very good surprises and was a pretty good showing all things considered. From the long-rumored Resident Evil 4 Remake to some Street Fighter 6 gameplay, almost all of the games featured showed fantastic trailers that will surely bring the hype. We also got a peek at the upcoming titles slated for the PSVR2, showing the power of the upgraded hardware.

Diablo Immortal is now live worldwide… well, at least in a few more hours, but we’ve been lucky enough to be playing it for the better part of last week to test out the game before it opens up its gates (of Hell) to the general public. Diablo Immortal is Blizzard’s take on a mobile version of the hugely popular series, and coming from its controversial reception when it was first announced back in 2018, the company has made huge strides into making it a deserving and worthwhile entry in the series. The game isn’t simply a port but an entry built from the ground up with a mobile-first design. From the many mechanics it has like its auto-navigation feature along with multiplayer dungeons and systems balancing, mobile players will surely appreciate all the work done to translate Diablo into an on-the-go mobile experience. We’ve been playing on the North…

The June 2022 Game Releases are quite interesting, ushering in the halfway point of the year without a bombshell title. Instead, we get a relatively light month with some titles that are definitely worth your time and attention if you’re not particularly interested at your backlog. Titles like The Quarry and Diablo Immortal headline the June 2022 Game Releases, supported by a couple of Switch exclusives in Mario Strikers: Battle League and Fire Emblem: Three Hopes. We’re also getting a much-needed DLC injection with Outriders: Worldslayer and Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. Let’s check out some of the more notable titles in our June 2022 Game Releases!

It’s easy to forget that after the release of some bangers like Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring that there’s still the rest of the year to get through and along with it, some highly-anticipated new games. Despite some high-profile delays like Starfield and Redfall being pushed to next year, 2022 is still a great year with a lot of new games to look out for.

Simulation games are somewhat of an oddity for me. I’ve tried and played a lot of titles in the genre throughout the years but have come across outings that either don’t hold my interest long enough or are too complicated for my simple mind. Enter the latest from Two Point Studios – Two Point Campus. Coming out on August 9 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch, and PC, this installment is the latest from the minds that brought you Two Point Hospital back in 2018. As a Two Point newbie, I was quite intrigued about the game, so Sega handed me a bone and invited me to preview a sizable chunk of the game. While the coverage of this preview was supposed to show some advanced levels like the Wizardry Course, starting the game from scratch meant that I had to work my way up the ranks…
