Watch Eight Minutes Of New Gameplay From A Plague Tale: Innocence

A Plague Tale: Innocence is an upcoming action adventure game from developer Asobo Studio and publisher Focus Home Interactive, that takes place in 14th century France. It follows the story of two siblings, Amicia and Hugo, who attempt to survive the plague-ridden country.

Recently, Asobo Studio showed off eight minutes of gameplay from the upcoming title. We watch teenage Amicia stealthily making her way through a village to eventually reach a university. During her journey, we see her distract enemies by launching throwables at them or even throwing a rock at a hanging corpse to catch a guard's attention.

Some light crafting is shown, as well as how rats are afraid of light. Amicia equips a torch to fend them off. Rats pose a deadly threat, and through this demo, we see her sneakily avoiding them or leading them feed on guards instead of herself.

This Mod Swaps Sekiro's Great Serpent For Thomas The Tank Engine

What would it be like if one of the bosses in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was... Thomas the Tank Engine? Well, it turns out the result is something altogether terrifying and hilarious.

Swapping enemies out for Thomas the Tank Engine has become a running joke in the mod community. For example, one of the more recent examples is Thomas taking the place of Mr. X in Resident Evil 2 thanks to a mod.

Now, you can defeat Thomas (or just watch in horror with the video below) when he takes the place of the Great Serpent in Sekiro.

Watch The Full Team Sonic Racing Overdrive Series From Sonic Mania Cutscene Artist

Last year, Sega released Sonic Mania Adventures, an series by the Sonic Mania cutscene animator Tyson Hesse with Neko Productions. The series was well-liked by fans, as it combined the charming art style of Sonic Mania's cutscenes with a lighthearted and fun adventure featuring the series' mainstay characters. Sega was so pleased with the feedback from the YouTube series that it brought Hesse and Neko Productions back for a two-part series in promotion of the soon-to-be released Team Sonic Racing.

The series features Team Sonic, Team Rose, and Team Dark competing on the Wisp Circuit course, while Dr. Eggman is up to his usual trickery. The first episode released in March, garnering 1.7 million views since. The second episode (which you can view standalone here) released this week. However, if you want to experience it in the most convenient way possible, you can see a compilation of the two parts below.

Team Sonic Racing releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on May 21. For more on the upcoming kart racer, check out our hands-on preview from last E3.

Did You Know Gaming Takes An Interesting Look At Mistakes In Pokémon Games

The Pokémon series has been a mainstay of the video game industry for over two decades. While the games have always delivered excellent experiences and contained terrific attention to detail, a few mistakes have slipped through the cracks over the years, particularly in the earlier entries of the series. 

Popular YouTube channel Did You Know Gaming just released its latest video chronicling some of these errors. The video features YouTuber Bobdunga narrating through fmistranslations, misnamed moves, and even invisible PCs. 

You can see the video below, and if this kind of thing fascinates you, the channel has a massive back catalog to explore.

Dreams Creator Reimagines Spider-Man PS4 Intro Sequence

Dreams Creator Reimagines Spider-Man PS4 Intro Sequence

Dreams has only been in PS4 Early Access for a week and a half, but that hasn't stopped creators from doing some pretty neat stuff using their limited time with the content-creation toolset. While some are using it for things like creating their own version of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, others are paying homage to their favorite video games within Media Molecule's tools. 

Twitter user Tamir Williams shared their creation on their feed, and as the below tweet points out, the reception was overwhelming for them. While they fully admit they're looking at creating or borrowing a better model for Spider-Man himself (some have entered the replies to the tweet offering to send them models they've made), the webbing sounds like it was a beast to model, taking around two hours for Williams to create it frame by frame.

You can see the recreation in the embedded tweet below. If you're in the Dreams Creator Early Access, you can follow this creator here.

Risk Of Rain 2 Roadmap Outlines Early Access Plans Until Launch

Risk Of Rain 2 Roadmap Outlines Early Access Plans Until Launch

The recently-released sequel to Risk of Rain came out abruptly last month around PAX East, surprising both fans of the first game and curious newcomers alike. Thanks to a surprising early promotion that gave purchasers a free copy to give to friends, Risk of Rain 2 became surprisingly popular. Now the developers at Hopoo Games are detailing how they plan to proceed with the rest of the game's early access period.

In a post on the game's Steam forums, the developers provided this helpful infographic:

As you can see, they plan for new content for each of their seasonal milestones leading up to the game's release in Spring 2020. The content seems to mostly focus on things like survivors, stages, bosses, and items, which are all kind of the bread and butter of this game, so it makes sense to keep those at the top of the priority list. 

Recently Dumped Rare Atari Game Might Have Been Stolen

Recently Dumped Rare Atari Game Might Have Been Stolen

There have been a lot of video games over the years and, by and large, most of them are preserved somewhere on the internet. Whether they're entirely accurate versions or not is another discussion, but some form is often available. This is not the case with Akka Arrh, an Atari arcade prototype that was its own spin on Missile Command when it was developed in 1982. Despite a release in some test markets, the game was deemed too complicated for players, so the title was shelved and never released in the wild. This means that Akka Arrh is an exceedingly rare game and the few people that did own machines weren't willing to release it online and make the exceedingly rare game decidedly less rare.

But now Akka Arrh is out on the internet and playable in emulators in what might be a vigilante-lead heist.

PlayStation 4 Approaches 100 Million Sales

PlayStation 4 Approaches 100 Million Sales

Once PlayStation 4's sales momentum got rolling this generation, it became nearly impossible to stop, but I am not sure even Sony foresaw how high the console's install base would rise six years ago when they launched the PS4. Now, as it nears the 100 million mark, the fourth PlayStation is entering a category that few other consoles manage to hit.

The information comes from Sony's consolidated financial year results, reported this week, which peg the PlayStation 4 at 96.8 million consoles sold by Sony. That puts it right against the edge of the 100 million league, which is currently occupied by the PlayStation 2 (155 million), the Nintendo DS (152 million), the Gameboy/Color/Pocket (118 million), the PlayStation 1 (102 million), and the Wii (101 million). Assuming the PlayStation 4 keeps selling at an even declining pace, it should hit the Wii number fairly soon.

Moreover, assuming the PlayStation 4 keeps selling past the release of the PlayStation 5, which is not going to hit any time in the next year, then it might even exceed the original PlayStation. This would make it Sony's second most successful console of all time and put them in a great position to make install base arguments to publishers with their new system, which they probably already can.
