    Not dead yet

    Following yesterday's Western launch of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, SEGA has released a survey for the purposes of gathering fan feedback. It's pretty standard stuff, but there is one question in particular that sticks out. Near the end of the survey, users are presented with the following query: "While no localization has been...

    One of the higher profile games at EGX Rezzed 2018 was Rebellion's thirties-tinged third person shooter, Strange Brigade. Oddly enough, the demo we played was single player, despite the main focus of the game being its four-player co-op. Still, what we played of this B-movie inspired action game proved it has some fun ideas that...

  • Hands On Windlands 2 Adds Co-Op, Weapons to Virtual Reality Platformer

    Second wind

    We rather liked the original Windlands on PlayStation VR. The satisfying movement and exhilarating sense of speed and altitude made for one of virtual reality's early successes -- at least, if you had the stomach for it. This holds true for Windlands 2, but the sequel isn't just reuniting you with a pair of grappling hooks and calling it...
