Five years after launch, Halo: The Master Chief Collection has finally fulfilled its full fan-service potential with the addition of the last missing game from the Xbox and Xbox 360 era, Halo Reach. It is a genuinely amazing package that now includes six of Microsoft’s classic single-player and co-op campaigns and legendary multiplayer modes, at long last free of any red-flag technical caveats. 343 Industries deserves a ton of credit for sticking with it after a notoriously bad launch and completing the long-term renovation of the house while its occupants lived (and played) inside. It’s admittedly a bit later than…

Update 12/13: The Wolf Among Us 2 has been announced at The Game Awards for the second time. The sequel to the Fables-based adventure game was originally announced in 2017, but the unfortunate closure of Telltale Games meant that the game never came to be. The story doesn’t end there, though; Telltale Games has been revived, and The Wolf Among Us 2 is back in development, with some of the original developers and voice cast returning, too. But what happened to Telltale Games, and why is the studio back? Is it even the same studio? Our full explainer below will…

A prominent member of the P.T community has unveiled that the player character in the cult horror game is actually Norman Reedus. Renowned Soulsborne and P.T. hacker Lance McDonald tweeted a short video showing the result of his latest camera hack in Hideo Kojima’s short horror game P.T., which clearly shows the playable character in P.T.. Turns out you were Norman Reedus the whole time. The video shows the reflection of the playable character in a mirror inside the game environment.

Spend enough time with any niche hobby and you’ll start to intuit what’s likely to become mainstream in the future and what won’t. With mechanical gaming keyboards, there are a number of trends I expect to see popularized in the near future. The more resilient PBT plastic is an obvious one, and indeed we see Razer experimenting with that on its latest Huntsman Tournament Edition keyboard. Optical switches are another feature that Razer has toyed with. Low-profile keyboards are also gaining in popularity. Custom keycap designs? Telephone cables? Hell, Topre switches? Maybe, maybe, and maybe.To read this article in full, please…

This is certainly proving to be a weird lead-up to the next generation of consoles. Sony’s been low-key dribbling information every few months through a series of Wired exclusives. Now Microsoft’s gone ahead and blown the lid off Project Scarlett at The Game Awards, of all places.The Scarlett codename is no more. The official name is the Xbox Series X, which I assume refers to the fact there will be multiple hardware setups at launch next November, one low-powered (but cheap) and one high-powered (but expensive). Presumably they’ll both use the same box regardless, the elongated black obelisk shown in…
