  • News Sorry PvP Fans, Helldivers 2 Will 'Never' Feature Competitive Modes

    Arrowhead doubles down on co-op

    We suppose this shouldn't be a revelatory statement for Arrowhead Game Studios to make, but its recently released co-op shooter, Helldivers 2, will remain a strictly co-op shooter. The PS5 and PC title has been a big hit so far, with overwhelmingly positive reception, selling over a million copies at this point, and...

    All part of the plan

    Yesterday, we brought you word of a brewing controversy surrounding the upcoming PS5 action game Rise of the Ronin after director Fumuhiko Yasuda made some comments alluding to a controversial 19th-century Japanese philosopher. It was supposed that these comments were why Sony confirmed the game would not be released in Korea,...

  • News Tekken 8 Exceeds Bandai Namco's Expectations, Tops 2 Million Sales

    It's a knockout

    Bandai Namco’s excellent brawler Tekken 8 is exceeding the publisher’s expectations, and has topped two million units less than three weeks after its release. It took Tekken 7 around two months to achieve the same milestone, meaning this new entry is selling at a much faster pace than its predecessor. Bravo to all involved...

    Massing for invasion

    The success of Helldivers 2's simultaneous launch on both PS5 and PC appears to have caught several interested parties off guard, blowing through initial projections with its ludicrously addictive brand of chaotic, cooperative gameplay.

  • Mini Review PlateUp! (PS5) - Co-Op Restaurant Roguelite Serves Up a Treat

    Cooking like a chef

    Inevitably, a game like PlateUp! will be compared to Overcooked, purely because both are restaurant-based games. Where PlateUp! differs from any of its foodie stablemates is that it has roguelite progression, and encourages players to stray away from chaos rather than embrace it. You and up to three others (locally or online)...
