Physics-Based Puzzle-Platformer Biped Out Now

If there’s any action that players tend to take for granted in most games it’s basic movement. Press the control stick forward, watch the character march in that direction. In Biped, from Russian developer NExT Studios, movement isn’t quite so straightforward. Give the trailer a look:

As you can see, the player character’s legs are each controlled with one of the control sticks on the controller. This makes simply navigating the game world a unique (and entertaining!) challenge, as a result. The game is also a co-op experience, so if you’re itching to play something with someone else, this could be the software you’ve been waiting for.

Biped is available now for Nintendo Switch via the eShop, so if you’re interested, be sure to consider giving it a download! In the meanwhile, tell us what you think of Biped down below.

Preorders Open for the First 4 Figures Majora’s Mask PVC Statue

First 4 Figures (F4F) always impresses with their beautiful, high-quality video game statues, and their latest addition is no exception. They’ve opened up preorders for their PVC statue, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask — Majora’s Mask PVC Statue [Exclusive Edition].

This 12″ statue is smaller than their life-size resin replica of Majora’s Mask, which gives it the option of being wall mountable. The eyes of the Exclusive Edition have two LED modes (static and pulsing), which can be switched via motion sensor. The statue’s logo base features static and animated LED lights; the static mode emits white light while the animated mode cycles through five colors (white, red, yellow, blue, and green).

Take a closer look at our The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask – Majora’s Mask PVC statue, hosted by Liz of First 4 Figures! Everything you need to know (and more) can be found in the link provided. https://t.co/3v6sN0nen9#Nintendo #TheLegendofZelda https://t.co/ZXVuarv8Ne

Evo Online Has Been Canceled

Evo 2020 was originally set to take place in Las Vegas this year, but after the physical event was canceled due to COVID-19, organizers planned to move it online across multiple weekends in July. Now Evo Online has been canceled as well amid accusations of sexual misconduct that have been levied against the organization’s CEO, Joey Cuellar.

On July 1, FGC Mikey “Crackpr0n” Pham accused Cuellar of repeatedly preying on underage boys in the early 2000s. Pham claimed that in 2001 when he was 17 and Cuellar was 23 or 24, they were at an arcade in Southern California that was popular for fighting game competitions; after a conversation in which the players present were discussing penis sizes, Pham claimed that he was “above average,” Cuellar bet Pham $20 he was not and asked to see Pham’s genitals in person, and the pair went to the arcade’s bathroom, where Pham showed himself to Cuellar and Cuellar paid him the money.

On July 2, Evo announced that they were completely cutting ties with Cuellar and replacing him with co-founder Tony Cannon as acting CEO:
