The PC version of Final Fantasy 15 will take up quite a bit of space on your hard drive, according to early specs, but who cares as long as mods are supported, right?

According to early recommended specs for the PC version of Final Fantasy 15, the game will take up a whopping 170GB.

This bit was revealed in the description of a launch trailer for the PC version, which was apparently pulled. Luckily, Twitter user Nibel hit the print screen key for everyone.

God’s Trigger is a frenetic, top-down co-op action game inspired by Hotline Miami

about X hours ago from

Techland Publishing has unveiled God’s Trigger, a top-down shooter that lets you violently take down enemies working for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

If this sounds like an over-the-top setup, it’s likely because it’s meant to. The game’s flow is very reminiscent of Hotline Miami’s, only it’s played in co-op.

One player plays as Harry, heaven’s envoy in the fight, while the other controls Judy, an escapee from hell. The pair will need to rely each other’s help to save the world. It’s also cool that the Four Horsemen are depicted as modern-day people.

about X hours ago from

Whatever game Biomutant ends up being, its first gameplay trailer sure is a treat.

After THQ Nordic officially unveiled the open-world action RPG earlier today, the first gameplay trailer made its way online just now.

The trailer (via Worthplayingvideos) is pretty amazing, showing different environments and the various ways of traversing them. But the characters and the machines shown here are absolutely perfect, unlike your typical NPCs in other games.

Cyberpunk shooter Ruiner gets September release date

about X hours ago from

The top-down cyberpunk shooter, Ruiner, finally has a release date.

Ruiner was unveiled last year, and its sci-fi aesthetics immediately stood out. Ruiner is set in the 2091 metropolis of Rengkok, where our psychopath protagonist is out looking for his kidnapped brother.

The game’s action is brutal, and looks amazing in motion with the slides and bullet time. Its neon look meshes together with the violence and all the blood splatter to create a cold, grim but beautiful image.

Let’s take a look at the SNES Classic Mini, take a tour of the menu, and play some Star Fox 2

about X hours ago from

The SNES Classic Mini releases next month, but pre-orders open soon.

It’s a good thing we got one early, then, courtesy of Nintendo. Our very own Alex actually received his unit just as he was getting ready to leave for gamescom.

In the video, you’ll see him take a look at the console itself, do a bit of a size comparison, and generally shake the thing around. As he notes in the video, the length of the controller cords may be an issue for some. On the bright side, you get two controller instead of one.

The more I play Assassin’s Creed Origins the more I like it

The more I play Assassin’s Creed Origins the more I like it

Assassin’s Creed Origins is really growing on me.

I don’t remember a lot about Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, the last major Assassin’s Creed game I put a few hours into. So my initial expectations for Origins were based purely on my interest in the Egyptian setting.

That setting has certainly hooked me in. Origins is rich with detailed architecture, with crumbling stone and decorative hieroglyphics. There’s a real beauty to the world, with lush reeds and flowers, its lavish clothing, jewels and eyeliner on good-looking people. Ubisoft is doing a grand job of creating an elegant and rich world that I want to explore more of, to poke around and interact with.

But there’s a lot more to enjoy beyond the aesthetic. Today I played a full Assassin’s Creed Origins mission that had hero Bayek running around an Egyptian city, before following that up with some good old fashioned free-play tomb raiding.
