Have you ever dreamed of leaving your humdrum life on Earth, to set out on an adventure that takes you light years away to another planet, so you can try your hand at slime wrangling? No? Me neither. But Beatrix LeBeau did and, as the video above shows, it looks like a lot of (silly) fun.

PUBG for PlayStation 4 spotted in ratings board leak

What would we do without the Korean Game Rating Board? Along with hinting some Castlevanias are due to be re-released, it has now posted a rating for PUBG on PlayStation 4. Chicken dinners for all!

The game's PlayStation debut doesn't come as much as a surprise: with PUBG fast approaching its 12-month anniversary on Xbox, it's likely the game is reaching the end of its exclusivity deal with Microsoft. It's not great news for Xbox, as PUBG has been one of the console's (very few) recent exclusive titles.

Despite PUBG's long stint on Xbox, the game was only available via Game Preview until its full launch earlier this month. As PlayStation has no early access programme, PUBG will have to be fully released from the get-go, and will likely be held to higher standards. No pressure, PUBG Corp.

Looks like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood will be re-released

Konami hasn't announced anything about an upcoming re-release of its Castlevania games, but it seems the news has slipped out anyway due to a posting by the ever-reliable Korean Game Rating Board.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood have been rated for the PS4 in Korea under the new name of "Castlevania Requiem" (according to Google translate, anyway). It sure sounds like a re-release to me, but we don't know exactly what form this will take. Will the games be completely remade from the ground up, or just remastered with a new lick of paint?

Rondo of Blood was released in Japan in 1993, and made its way onto the PSP as a remake called Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles. Its sequel, Symphony of the Night, was released on the PlayStation in 1997. The latter was initially unsuccessful in terms of sales, but received critical acclaim and over the years became something of a cult classic.

You can now download and play your digital Nintendo Switch games on another Switch console with minimal fuss, thanks to a new system update.
