Resident Evil 7 teaser videos look a little more like Resident Evil

Shotguns! Item boxes! Inventory Tetris!

Resident Evil 7 biohazard is something of a departure for the series. It’s in first-person perspective and, so far, we haven’t seen much in the way of the game’s trademark zombies (or otherwise zombie-like creatures). But Capcom has promised that familiar Resident Evil gameplay tropes — green herbs, for example — will return in the new game, including one we can see today.

It’s brief — and part of a longer, 10-part video tease — but in one of two new clips released today, we see Resident Evil 7’s player character collect a shotgun from an item box and slot it into their grid-based inventory.

Destiny’s rewards are changing with next week’s Light increase, here’s how

Gear up with better rewards

Destiny developer Bungie will raise the game’s Light cap next week when it introduces the hard mode of Destiny: Rise of Iron’s raid, and with that increase will come a corresponding rise in the Light limit on rewards, the studio announced today.

The Heroic difficulty for Wrath of the Machine, the new raid, will go live next Tuesday, Oct. 18. The patch that brings in the new challenge, update 2.4.1, will be released at approximately 10 a.m. PT that day. In order give raid teams a fair shot at downloading the update and attacking Heroic mode, the new difficulty level won’t go live until 2 p.m. PT.

Wayward Sky is a charming PlayStation VR puzzle game you’ll want to play with others

The joy of social VR

“You are Bess, a young pilot flying with your father when you crash into a mysterious fortress that emerges out of the clouds,” the description for Wayward Sky, a $19.99 launch game for PlayStation VR, explains. “Your father kidnapped and plane in ruins, you set out to explore the fortress and rescue him.”

It’s story that is explained in the game’s opening minutes. Soon after, you’re using your Move controllers, or a DualShock 4 if you don’t mind giving up a bit of interactivity, to point Bess toward where she should go, or to jump down to her size and interact directly with different elements of the puzzle.

Anti-Trump ad campaign viciously slams Republican nominee as a Hanzo player

Anti-Trump ad campaign viciously slams Republican nominee as a Hanzo player

Turns out he’s a Hanzo main, and he’s terrible at it

We can’t say for sure if Donald Trump, ex-reality television star and current Republican presidential nominee, is an Overwatch player. But a billboard posted in Orlando, Florida this week has an idea of just what kind of Overwatch player Trump would be, and according to the poster’s creators at Cards Against Humanity, “Trump is Not a Team Player.”

That’s the name of an anti-Trump campaign launched this week by the company’s political action group, Nuisance Committee. While the Overwatch-themed billboard — which positions Trump as an arrogant Hanzo fan, one of the community’s most maligned, “spammy” types of player — is the most visible element of its sloganeering, the Committee’s website goes even further with the joke.

Pokémon Generations proves that Team Magma has the series’ creepiest villains

Another episode, another change of pace

Pokémon is a test of skill, but it’s also a battle between good and evil at its core. That’s made obvious in the newest episode of Pokémon Generations, "The Vision," which spotlights the Hoenn region’s fearsome Team Magma.

Team Magma appears in both Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, although players of the former version were the ones who actually got to face off against the group. Led by the stoic Maxie, they’re a frightening pack; even Brendan, the future Pokémon champion and star of the third-generation games, appears to be no match for Team Magma this time around.

Players who want to check out Stormblood will have to move to PS4 or PC

Today during the Final Fantasy 14 Fan Festival event where the second expansion for the MMO was announced, Square Enix also revealed that the developer will stop supporting the PlayStation 3 version of the game.

Final Fantasy 14 director Naoki Yoshida announced that the publisher will be launching a special upgrade campaign, allowing players still enjoying the PlayStation 3 version of the game to upgrade to the PS4 version for free. Players will, of course, still need to purchase a PlayStation 4, but they will not need to pay for the game again.

Gears of War 4 patched to resolve multiplayer ‘hitching’

No more silly workarounds, hopefully

Gears of War 4 developer The Coalition patched the game today in an effort to eliminate the issue of “hitching” in its multiplayer mode, the studio said in a forum post.

Xbox One players of Gears 4 have been dealing with stuttering at the beginning of multiplayer matches, and during long continuous sessions. Earlier this week, The Coalition updated its list of known issues with a strange but simple workaround for the hitching problem: “Open four other games (allow them to load past the initial splash screen) and then load Gears of War 4.”
