You'll Want To Sell Your Soul To The Devil For These Cuphead Construction Sets

Cuphead wowed us with its 1930s-inspired, hand-drawn animation, and it's wowing us again in 3D with three new construction sets from McFarlane Toys.

The sets include Chaotic Casino, Devil's Throne, and Devious Dice and feature familiar characters like The Devil, King Dice, Mugman and, of course, the titular Cuphead. Not only can you build each character though, you can pose them, with each lil' guy having several articulation points.

The Chaotic Casino set is currently unavailable on Amazon, but there's still time to pre-order the other two sets, which both run for $15.99.

Indie Platformer Cyber Shadow Being Published By Yacht Club Games

Indie Platformer Cyber Shadow Being Published By Yacht Club Games

Yacht Club Games, the developers behind the indie hit Shovel Knight as well as all its associated DLC and expansions, recently teased a new game showing a ninja standing over a Blade Runner-esque city. They quickly clarified that this is what they're dubbing as Yacht Club Publishing and people soon figured out that the game bore a striking resemblance to the already-announced Cyber Shadow from Machine Head Games.

Now, Yacht Club has confirmed they will be publishing the action platformer which itself bears a strong resemblance to Ninja Gaiden and looks to be the love letter to that genre that Shovel Knight was to its inspirations. You can check out the new trailer for it below.

It's extremely cool-looking and seems to evoke Ninja Gaiden without being beholden to everything that might make that game incredibly unfun to play in a modern context. It'll be interesting to see how Cyber Shadow stacks up against last year's Ninja Gaiden-like The Messenger, but they look like they're taking two different angles at the same idea.

CD Projekt Red Says E3 2019 Will Be The Most Important E3 In Company History

CD Projekt Red Says E3 2019 Will Be The Most Important E3 In Company History

During its annual investor conference, CD Projekt Red (CDPR) – the developers behind The Witcher 3 and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 – announced its plans for E3.

Apparently, big plans. According to CEO Adam Kiciński, E3 2019 will be the most important E3 in the studio's history. It's likely the studio will announce Cyberpunk 2077's release date, considering the studio told investors that E3 is the best venue for that kind of announcement.

Aside from that game, though, we can only speculate as to why this will be the company's biggest E3. Last year, the studio said there will be more games in the Witcher-verse, so perhaps we'll get an announcement for its follow-up to the wildly successful Witcher 3. The company revealed its acquisition of additional office space in Warsaw next to its current building, and it plans to hire another 250-300 developers. Whatever comes out of the studio next – whether it's The Witcher or a brand new IP – it's likely to be a project on par with CDPR's existing slate of games.

Conan Exiles, The Surge Head To PlayStation Plus In April

Conan Exiles, The Surge Head To PlayStation Plus In April

PlayStation Plus subscribers eager to dig into something (relatively) new have a couple of choices at their disposal. Today Sony announced that Focus Home Interactive's sci-fi soulslike The Surge and Funcom's Conan Exiles are headed to the service in April. 

Reiner reviewed The Surge for Game Informer, and while he enjoyed the combat he felt the experience was ultimately undermined by repetition. You can read his review here. Focus and developer Deck13 are currently making a sequel slated to release later this year. 

Conan Exiles is an online survival multiplayer game born out of early access. Former intern Joey Thurmond checked out the game as it approached the 1.0 release, and said "the game has come a long way to establish its merit with commendable visuals, settlement building, and various improvements with new environments to explore. There are some kinks and systems that could be ironed out and deepened to make Exiles something truly special." You can read his full impressions here.

Fortnite's 8.20 Patch Turns The Floor To Lava

Fortnite receives its newest patch today, and changes are extensive. The biggest takeaway from version 8.20 are Floor is Lava, a timed mode where lava gradually rises from the map's lowest point, forcing players to fight on the high ground. Epic also created a new poison dart trap to surprise your foes.

The update brings bananas and coconuts that restore health and a pepper that heals you and makes you run around for a bit. Creative is receiving a few new features as well, with a creature spawner and shooting gallery. You can pour over countless other changes over on the official patch notes if you are so inclined.

If you haven't played in a few weeks, Fortnite's previous patch introduced separate pools for crossplay.
