PlayStation 4 exclusive Detroit: Become Human was announced in 2015 and it’s based on the Kara demo which was first shown back in 2012.

The game is set in near-future Detroit where androids and humans co-exist. In it, an android named Kara discovers she can feel emotions. There are others such as Connor, a “cold, analytical, and advanced” android who hunts down others of his kind that no longer adhere to their programming.

Detroit: Become Human review – a pretty but hollow interactive movie

about X hours ago from

Going into a David Cage game in 2018 without some expectations is impossible. Love them or loathe them, Cage’s games have a distinct style and that means we come to expect certain things, things that are all part of Detroit: Become Human.

Detroit and developer Quantic Dream may have had bad press already, focused on the game’s content and alleged working conditions at the studio, but none of that means Detroit has to be a bad game. Anything is possible and I always welcome surprises. But the greatest surprise isn’t that Detroit fails to deliver a good story, it’s that it’s one hell of a boring game.

Like the studio’s previous titles this is a cinematic adventure built around context sensitive action and dialogue choices. Detroit is about a future where androids are used as a slave workforce and their slow revolt against humanity. The game seems way more interested in the first part with entire sections involving nothing but doing mundane actions as prompted on screen. There’s even an entire level where you just clean a house.

Battlefield 5: DICE looking at how Battlefield can do battle royale

You may have noticed that DICE did not mention battle royale at all during the Battlefield 5 reveal stream last night, not even as a joke.

This isn’t particularly surprising, but with how successful battle royale games have become over the last year or so, there’s an expectation that every big shooter is going to have its own take on the mode.

DICE was understandably busy going over Battlefield 5’s many innovations, like fortifications, the new attrition mechanics, the upgraded Grand Operations mode and a wide variety of other topics.

Sunset Overdrive could be on its way to PC, if this new rating is any indication.

The Korean games rating board, GRAC, your first source for unannounced ports of games, has awarded Sunset Overdrive on PC a rating.

Sunset Overdrive has only ever been an Xbox One exclusive, and was never officially announced for PC, but this rating could be an indication that we’re getting closer to an announcement. The rating was made this week, which is another sign.

Yep, PUBG’s recent patch changed positional sounds without the developer saying anything

about X hours ago from

The most recent PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds patch made a significant change to the way sound works.

The PUBG patch, released a little over a week ago, does not appear to be massive at first glance. The patch notes documented a few minor fixes and the arrival of new cosmetic items.

However, sometime after the patch’s release, players started reported what they described as audio issues. Most just assumed it’s a bug – PUBG has many – but others insisted the developer had messed with the game’s positional audio, requiring players to re-learn how to locate opponents based on their shots – a crucial element of gameplay in PUBG.
