Developer Xaviant is shutting down The Culling 2, hoping to give refunds to those who bought it. Xaviant is rebooting the original game as free-to-play as a result. In a video on Xaviant’s official YouTube channel, director of operations Josh Van Veld issued an apology to fans of The Culling for the botched launch of The Culling 2 last week. The decision to pull the plug on The Culling 2 resulted from complaints over abandoning the original game, its decreased emphasis on melee combat, low server populations, and a generally poor reception. “It’s been difficult for us to wrap our…

A Fortnite player discovered an enemy trapped with no escape and the video of the attempted rescue mission has sparked an outpouring of love and applause. Popular streamer Muselk found himself on the edge of the new desert biome of the Fortnite map where he discovered an enemy player stuck at the bottom of a cliff. Believing the opponent was out of materials, Muselk built a lengthy staircase down to save the poor fellow. A building limit found just above the enemy thwarted the daring plan.

Capcom has shared more details on the upcoming Devil May Cry 5, saying it’s aiming for a consistent 60 frames per second. According to an interview with the developer in Famitsu, via Silicon Era, while the goal for the team is photorealism combined with “tight Capcom play control”, hitting a consistent 60 fps is also a focus, to nail the high-speed combat associated with the series. However, Capcom stated the photorealism graphics will affect the motion cancel mechanic, saying it would look strange and calling it “the uncanny valley of action.” As a result, players will still be able to input motion cancel…

A fan project to bring the famously-deleted P.T. to PC has been forced into cancellation by Konami, but the developer of the remake has been offered an internship at the company. Hideo Kojima’s cancelled Silent Hills teaser has had a number of remakes, but a recent example, ‘PT for PC’ by 17 year-old developer Qimsar, was looking pretty impressive – and close to being finished. Unfortunately the project has been shut down by Konami due to “legal issues”, but in an update, Qimsar says that he has been offered an internship at the publisher, working with its EU, US and Japanese offices. On top…

The land of Ooo has flooded and out there be pirates. It’s up to Finn and Jake to find out how things got so whack and bust up a few dinguses while they’re at it. Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion attempts to mix the world and humor of the Cartoon Network series with a competent but simple turn-based RPG, but never manages to be all that great at either. The charm of the TV show is never fully realised and the action is a bit too basic to offer any real depth. Younger fans will probably find this an…

How well can a game that looks like it came from the SNES era sell in 2018? Well, it’s been less than a week since the release of Octopath Traveler and even Square Enix didn’t know how wildly popular it would become. Physical copies have already sold out in most stores around the world, and in the UK it’s currently ranking third on the national sales charts. It’s not very often that a JRPG makes a dent on the national sales charts and reaches mainstream success. The last game to do so was highly modernized Persona 5 on PS4, which…
