Lovecraftian games are definitely on the rise in recent years (to varied success), but The Sinking City’s blend of a mysterious and cosmic plot with clunky but serviceable third-person action rises above many of the rest of this fleshed-out genre. It places you in a detailed world filled with the fantastic and unearthly horrors befitting of any Lovecraftian tale, but provides a fresh but reverent take where others may have stayed on the tracks laid nearly a century ago. That said, while developer Frogwares’ delve into Cthulhu lore has incredible moments, the tedious elements of this pulpy 1920s tale can…

EA Play gave us 14 minutes of largely unedited Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay. I liked what I saw initially, but was left scratching my head after seeing the nearly 30-minute behind-closed-doors demo. The vertical slice that was shown on the EA Play livestream omitted some spectacular set piece moments and crucial hints of Fallen Order’s Metroidvania structure. Be sure to watch the full behind-closed-doors demo for yourself in the video above and if you’re itching for extra context you can find all the details I noticed below. A Republic LAAT Clone Dropship attacks an Imperial ATAT and TIE…

Upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 will not feature a morality system that categorises your character as good or bad depending on their actions. Talking to GamingBolt, quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz said “We don’t have a moral system per se. However, to complete non-lethally you have to be very good at stealth. Invest in points that allow you to stealth better, use weapons that will allow you to incapacitate the enemy instead of killing them, to make the moral choices that will allow you to avoid killing people throughout the game.” With this in mind, it appears that Cyberpunk 2077 will allow…

With OWC’s Envoy Pro Ex with USB-C, another company is promising to deliver the full potential of USB external storage via NVMe SSDs. OWC claims 980MBps of sustained throughput, which is very fast, though we’ll verify that when we test it. The drive, which is Mac- and PC-compatible, starts shipping Tuesday. The Envoy Pro EX with USB-C will be available unpopulated for $95, but it’s a better deal with an NVMe SSD pre-installed: 250GB for $130, 500GB for $180, 1TB for $250, or 2TB for $430. The drives will be warrantied for three years, and may be purchased at OWC’s (Other…

The former head of Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind numerous Call of Duty games, has spoken about how Call of Duty: Modern Warfare could be a tough challenge for Infinity Ward, noting that there could be pressure from Activision to make the game controversial. Talking to Venture Beat, Michael Condrey – who now acts as president of 2K Silicon Valley – responded to a question about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s critical reception at E3. “I respect every developer who strives to deliver their work as an extension or reflection of their artistic vision,” Condrey said. “That said, MW seems…
