    Devil's in the details

    Patch 1.06 for Tekken 8 is out now. Primarily, it adds new DLC character Lidia to the game's already robust character roster — alongside the new Seaside Resort stage — but we'd argue that the update's true worth is hidden behind its introduction of a fully featured photo mode. Tekken 8's a great-looking fighter, and being...

    Closed beta testing for Baldur's Gate 3's big Patch 7 has been delayed, meaning it will take even longer to arrive for players on PS5.
