Rebuilt and Remastered The Room is Coming to Nintendo Switch

On October 18, The Room will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in its console debut. Team17 in Partnership with Fireproof Games announced that the game, originally released in 2012, has been completely rebuilt to take advantage of the Switch’s touch screen in handheld mode and they have implemented new motion control in TV mode with the Joy-Con controllers.

Described as a “physical puzzler wrapped inside a mystery game,” The Room invites you to an abandoned attic which holds a mysterious safe. The story is minimal, the clues cryptic, and to solve each puzzle you must manipulate and investigate the eerie space around you.  

The Room will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop on October 18 for $9.99. For more information on the series, read our review of The Room: Old Sins, which came out earlier this year.

Yugi Moto Believes In The Heart Of The Cards In This New Jump Force Trailer

Yugi Moto Believes In The Heart Of The Cards In This New Jump Force Trailer

While Yu-Gi-Oh's Yugi Moto was revealed a few weeks ago for the upcoming manga fighter Jump Force, we haven't really seen him in action yet. Thankfully, Bandai Namco has provided a new trailer for the game showing exactly how the card-slinger fights.

While it's been sometime since I have familiarized myself with the card-battling story of Yu-Gi-Oh, my understanding is that Duel Monsters' eponymous monsters were holograms created by the weird thing they wore on their arms, which is clearly not the case here. Yugi fights using corporeal versions of Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl and finishes enemies with a certain legendary monster. 

It's unclear if Yugi will have different monsters to play with, but for now his bread and butter seems to be the two Dark Magicians in his deck.

Changing Usernames In PSN Might Finally Be On The Way

Changing Usernames In PSN Might Finally Be On The Way

PSN users have long yearned for the ability to change their usernames. If recent rumors are correct, they might finally get the option.

Kotaku is reporting that it recently interviewed three anonymous sources, developers working at various studios, and all of them have said that they're "fixing bugs, tweaking settings, and ensuring that their games are compatible with Sony’s plans."

Another source, according to the piece, showed Kotaku a picture that's supposedly internal documentation from Sony showing a PSN profile with an option to edit the username. Kotaku says that it hasn't gotten any indication of a timeline, so this hypothetical feature could still be a way off.

Yakuza Kiwami & Bulletstorm Briefly Teased As November Free PS Plus Titles

Ps4 titles Yakuza Kiwami and Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition briefly appeared on an official Sony PS Plus web page as free November titles for subscribers before being taken down.

Both titles are remasters, and Kiwami in particular would be a welcome free title given how much our own Jeff Cork enjoyed it.

We'll have to wait and see if these two titles indeed become free offers for PS Plus members later in October, which is usually when these things are officially announced.

Explore Twin Peaks' Surrealness In VR

Collider Games, Showtime, and series creator David Lynch are developing a Twin Peaks VR experience for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift exploring the show's mystical Glastonbury Grove and Red Room leading to the Black Lodge.

While the VR experience and possible encounter with the Black Lodge will probably not annihilate the soul, players can explore "moments and settings" from both Twin Peaks: The Return and the original series.

An exact release date for Twin Peaks VR is unknown, but it will be at the Festival of Disruption in Los Angeles on October 13-14.
