Science-Fiction Weekly – New Rage 2 Details, Star Wars TV, Forgotton Anne

Rage 2 was one of the numerous games no one has heard of listed on Walmart's website last week. No one had heard a peep about it prior to this listing, leading many internet sleuths to think it was fake. Bethesda Softworks didn't stay quiet for long, as it playfully poked fun at Walmart on Twitter for having the wrong font for Rage 2.

Today Bethesda validated this leak with the official reveal of Rage 2, which is surprisingly being co-developed by id Software – the developer of the original Rage – and Avalanche Studios, best known for its work on the Just Cause series and the Mad Max game. Rage 2's gameplay trailer shows off a sprawling open world set in the aftermath of mankind's rise to power. The game takes place decades after the asteroid scorched the Earth, and follows a character named Walker, the last Ranger of Vineland. The footage shows just how resourceful and firearm-capable Walker is, even when standing at the feet of giants.

New Gameplay Today – BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

Here's what you need to know about our own Suriel Vazquez: Fighting games are kind of His Thing. Therefore, it only makes sense for him to be our tour guide through BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. "What's BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle?" you may be asking. Well, at least that's what Leo and I were wondering. Now we know. And you can, too, after watching our latest episode of NGT.

Suriel walks us through just about everything you need to know about the game, showing off plenty of combos and explaining some of the deeper gameplay systems. Also, he takes the bait and shows off a little about the game's campaign, which I instantly regretted asking about.

30 Wacky And Gross Things You Can Do In The Forest

The Forest is a gripping game that mixes horror and the survival-sandbox genre into something special. However, it's also a game where you can get into all sorts of wild shenanigans. Here are 30 of the wackiest, grossest, and most bizarre things you can do in the game.

1. Kill a turtle and then use its shell as an improvised sled.

2. Use your downed flight's passenger list to track down all your fellow passengers to find out what happened to them and steal their clothes and wristwatches. It's not like they need that stuff anymore, I guess.

The Sports Desk – The NHL 19 Wishlist

After a slow start this console generation, the NHL franchise finally found its footing in 2017. NHL 18 introduced the fun arcade mode NHL Threes, injected more puckhandling creativity with a new layer of dekes, and gave defenders more control over their gaps with the defensive skill stick. All were positive steps in the right direction, but developer EA Canada has a lot of grinding to do if it wants to stand among the best sports games.

Game Informer's resident puckheads Matt Bertz, Kim Wallace, and Matthew Kato put their heads together to formulate a winning strategy on how the NHL series could take the next big leap forward.

Watch 23 Horrendous Crashes In Descenders On Xbox One

Descenders is coming to Xbox One Game Preview tomorrow after spending time in Early Access in PC. It's a rogue-like, downhill bike racing game and it  let's you pull off some amazing stunts, but you're here for the gnarly crashes, beautifully enhanced by realistic ragdoll physics. It's not all disaster, though. I promise there at least eight successful stunts peppered across the video.
