Discover tentacled horror at the bottom of the sea in the strategy-RPG Stirring Abyss

We said in 2018 that it'd be swell if game developers would ease up on the Cthulhu mythos and put some effort into other kinds of horror, and I think that position still stands. That doesn't seem likely to happen anytime soon, though, and once in awhile a game featuring faces with too many tentacles comes along that looks like it might be different enough to be interesting. Stirring Abyss, a strategy-RPG about a submarine that's run into a spot of trouble at the bottom of the ocean, might be one of them.

Eternal Hope is a Limbo-like journey to save the soul of your beloved

I've never been much good with conventional arcade platformers, but I've got a real soft spot for games like Limbo, Inside, Trine, and The Final Station. Make your jump-and-run game slower, more visually impactful, and give it a story to tell, and chances are I'll be all over it. So I have high hopes for Eternal Hope, a new game being developed by Brazilian studio Doublehit Games that's set to come out in August.

The winner of Fortnite's Asia FNCS Invitational has been caught cheating

The Fortnite FNCS Invitational groups the top ranking players across all regions in a Solo competition, with victors receiving a portion of the $2 million prize pool. The 'solo' part is pretty important, and it's a lesson Japanese player Sekosama has learned: after winning the Asia component of the Invitational, the player has had his $15,000 prize money revoked for 'teaming' during the match.

You can now take a leisurely ride through Los Santos with this GTA 5 bike controller mod

Why ride a push bike through Los Santos when you can take a fighter jet? Here's a damn good reason: exercise. A new GTA 5 mod makes the game compatible with smart bike trainers, which are basically indoor exercise bikes equipped with technology that can, among other things, simulate real world terrain in virtual environments. One example of compatible software is Zwift, which is like an MMO for people very serious about cycling.
