Outriders Review in Progress: Demo Impressions

Since seeing our first hands-on preview of Outriders last summer, I’ve been cautiously optimistic about People Can Fly’s new co-op shooter/RPG. I was disappointed by the latest delay, but as a consolation prize, Square Enix has released the first act on schedule as a demo for us to start forming impressions off of. After spending the last day or so wreaking superpowered havoc on PS5, I’m still not sure whether the final game will end up being the Mass Effect/Destiny/Gears of War mashup...

What's Up With These Huge Video Game Install Sizes?

Call of Duty players got a rough surprise this week when Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare/Warzone received a new set of large updates, prompting Activision to say that 500GB PS4 owners may need to "make room" if they want both games. As you would expect, players with base storage configurations and slow internet connections cried out in unison. Which raises the question: why are games so freaking big these days?

To start, let's state the obvious: games always get bigger. They have since...

Stonefly: Why Piloting a Mini-Mech Through Nature Looks So Fun

I didn’t truly know what to expect from Stonefly, even after having played and enjoyed Flight School Studio’s last game, the pinball action title Creature in the Well. The hands-off demo we saw opened on a splash screen filled with foliage, greens, reds, and browns filling the screen, with a small, mech-like device perched on a tree branch. From there, jumping into the action – which sees protagonist Annika on a Ferris Bueller-style hunt to retrieve her dad’s lost mech (which she...

Batman and Harley Quinn Are Returning to Fortnite

Batman is returning to the world of Fortnite, and he's bringing Catwoman and Harley Quinn along for the ride. This latest collaboration between DC and Epic Games is dubbed Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point. But while this isn't the Dark Knight's first dalliance with Fortnite, this crossover is unique in that it's primarily driven by a comic book tie-in. Naturally, there will also be new Batman-themed costumes and items coming to the game. [caption id="attachment_2479303" align="aligncenter"...

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Could Be Coming to PS Plus in March, But Won't Be Upgradeable to PS5 Version

The PS4 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake seems to be coming to PS Plus next March, at least in Japan – but it won't upgrade freely to the new PS5 version. As pointed out by Twitter user aibo, the Japanese PS Store listing for Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade includes small print that indicates the original PS4 game will be added to PS Plus on March 1. However, roughly translated, that listing adds that, "The PlayStation®4 version "FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE" obtained as a free play by...

Fortnite: Where to Scan a Server at a Surface Hub

The end of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is rapidly approaching. Once March 15 hits, fans will no longer be able to finish the current battle pass. Because of this, players are scrambling to complete as many quests as possible. Some of the quests are trickier to complete than others. The Sleuth’s “Scan a Server at a Surface Hub” quest doesn’t require a ton of skill, but it can be a little confusing if you don’t know where to go or what you’re looking for. That’s where we come...
