DrDisrespect is streaming again, now on YouTube

More than a month after Guy “DrDisrespect” Beahm’s channel was mysteriously banned from Twitch, the popular and controversial streamer has gone live, but this time he’s live on YouTube.

DrDisrespect’s YouTube stream went live around 4:30 p.m. ET, but Beahm’s alter-ego has yet to appear onscreen. The stream has consisted of a render of a gas station with DrDisrespect and Champions Club-themed decorations. Music and faux news broadcasts have been playing in the background.

Godfall’s makers offer a long look at PlayStation 5 gameplay

Godfall, the Gearbox Software-published action-adventure for PC and PlayStation 5, got a closer look during Thursday’s State of Play event. Players will be rewarded for being aggressive, taking risks, mastering combat combinations, and dominating the fray, said developer Counterplay Games.

First announced at The Game Awards 2019, Godfall hasn’t shown much since then, except for the leak of some old work-in-progress footage back in January and a slightly longer trailer shown at the PS5 Future of Gaming event last June. In Thursday’s trailer, Godfall game director Keith Lee took players on a tour of the game’s five different weapon classes and the player character’s special abilities, and how they combine to beat ass galore in Godfall.

Bugsnax is more than a catchy tune — here’s its first gameplay trailer

Octodad: Dadliest Catch developer Young Horses debuted a gameplay trailer for its impossibly cute upcoming game, Bugsnax, on Thursday. Turns out, there’s more to the game than simply a catchy tune — it sounds like you’ll play a rogue journalist checking out the mysterious and food-filled world. It’s our first extended look at the game since it was announced on June 11.

Bugsnax’s new trailer begins with an open invitation from Elizabert Megafig, an explorer, to join her on Snaktooth Island. The journalist takes her up on the offer — against the wishes of her news editor boss — and heads over to the island. In the gameplay trailer, you’re greeted by the mayor, and that’s where we get our first look at the gameplay. First, you catch a strawberry Bugsnax with a trap. Next, you lure one into a pen with some ketchup.

Temtem, the Pokémon-like MMO, is coming to PS5

Temtem, the Pokémon-like MMO, is coming to PS5

Temtem was initially released as an early access game on PC, but in 2021, the monster-collecting MMO will come to consoles, too. Sony’s State of Play event revealed Temtem’s arrival on the PlayStation 5.

In our initial assessment of the game, we called it a hardcore experience that would be perfect for Pokémon fans who are looking for a real challenge. While the launch was marred by connectivity issues and a lack of diverse monsters to collect, over time the massively multiplayer experience has expanded and improved. Developer Crema has added dozens of new pals to collect, a photo mode, a permadeath-oriented “nuzlocke” mode, player-run clubs, and new locales, such as a wildlife preserve where the monsters on display change every week. Patches have also introduced more complexity to existing monsters through mechanics such as traits and techniques.

Braid Anniversary Edition coming to Sony PlayStation 4

Braid, the time-bending puzzle game first released in 2008, is coming to the PlayStation 4. The announcement was made today during Sony’s State of Play livestream presentation. Called Braid Anniversary Edition, it will include higher resolutions and an in-depth developer commentary.

Designed by Jonathan Blow (The Witness), Braid was first released for the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade, before eventually getting ported to Windows and PlayStation 3. It tells a heart-wrenching story of loss through minimalist narrative chunks that serve almost as Easter eggs. The main attraction is the gameplay itself, which makes creative use of time manipulation.

Io Interactive and Sony announced the VR version during the State of Play event on Thursday afternoon. They showed a trailer (above) featuring Agent 47 stalking his prey, first-person perspective, inside some kind of upscale hotel bar in Dubai.
