Including classics, memorable newer games and indie gems.
Xbox and Microsoft gaming head Phil Spencer may’ve just spilled the beans. In an interview this week, Spencer spoke about a whole lot of plans for the future of Xbox, including plans for “lower priced hardware” that’ll work with Microsoft’s game streaming service and xCloud. So maybe you won’t need an Xbox Series S after all. The reason the Xbox … Continue reading
"Cyberpunk 2077" is the next major game from the acclaimed game studio behind the "Witcher" franchise. Here's everything we know about it.
Nodding Heads Games created their first action-adventure video game titled Raji: An Ancient Epic.The game was exclusively released on 18 August 2020 for Nintendo Switch and on 15 October 2020 for Microsoft Windows via PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Epic Games Store.The game is based on Indian history and Hindu mythology, and its impressive presentation made the game popular among the fans.However, the disappointing ending and short run-time have a negative impact on the game.Raji: An Ancient Epic is set in ancient India and follows Raji, who lives with her younger brother Golu and they both work as the circus performer.One day on the festival of Rakshabandhan, a group of demons with their leaders and lord Mahabalasura surrounded the circus.They slaughter everyone in the circus and kidnap the children to use them for some unknown and dark purpose.During the chaos, Raji tries to save her beloved brother from the demons, but she fails and is left for dead.Later, Raji wakes up and can not find her brother Golu, who is also missing, like the rest of the children.
People in Wales say a rule banning supermarkets from selling non-essential goods during the country’s 17-day “firebreak” lockdown is confusing – and could damage people’s mental health. On Thursday, the nation’s first minister Mark Drakeford said the rule was a “simple matter of fair play” for hundreds of small businesses that have been forced to close under lockdown restrictions. “We are looking to minimise the amount of time that people spend out of their homes during this two-week period,” he added. “This is not the time to be browsing around supermarkets looking for non-essential goods.”According to guidance published on Friday afternoon – just hours before the lockdown is set to begin – the list of “non-essential” supermarket aisles that must be closed off includes electrical goods, telephones and clothes. Toys and games, products for the garden and homeware products also made the list. A photo circulating on Twitter showed a supermarket shelf, seemingly stocked with bedding, being covered with plastic.  You absolute tool @[email protected] covering what YOU THINK are non essential items. So what happens if my child is sick or has an accident and I need to replace the quilt.— Danielle Jones (@sullydano1) October 23, 2020But people living in Wales have slammed the new regulation as a “step too far”. Carl Twinney, who lives in Bridgend, told HuffPost UK it felt as if the government was “punishing” people during lockdown. “What’s more worrying to me is I think it’ll have a big effect on mental health,” the 27-year-old said. “Sometimes when you’re struggling to pass the time, you need things to help keep your brain active like DVDs, PlayStation or Xbox games or puzzles. “Or maybe you just fancy treating yourself to help cope with low mood – treating yourself may sound silly but it counts as self care and that’s one of the most important things to do to keep going during a lockdown.” Twinney also questioned how the move would protect small businesses, with people still able to order items online. “It’s just going to push people to order stuff from online retailers that deliver within 24 hours, so smaller businesses will suffer either way,” he said. A confused, last minute announcement that will simply send business to Amazon instead of the Welsh economy. Mark Drakeford thinks no-one needs to buy a hairdryer before 9 November but if mine blew up, I would! And now I’d buy it from Amazon.— Gill Phillips (@GillyMac99) October 23, 2020It’s a concern echoed by Gill Phillips, who called it a “confused, last minute announcement that will simply send business to Amazon instead of the Welsh economy”. “Mark Drakeford thinks no-one needs to buy a hairdryer before November 9 but if mine blew up, I would. And now I would buy it from Amazon.” Meanwhile, Susie – who is retired and lives in Prestatyn – said the new rule would hit the poorest in society the hardest: “Those with the least who have to live on day-to-day and for whom everything is a struggle at the best of times.”“It’s ok for people who can afford to order online when their child needs some new trousers because he’s ripped his or some pants or warm socks.” But for the poorest families, clothes from the supermarket are often the most affordable option, she said. Susie added: “I am just so angry at the Senedd thinking it can decide what is essential in people’s lives and yet classing alcohol as essential. So a bottle of designer gin is fine, a coat for a child isn’t?” The circuit-breaker lockdown in Wales – which is due to begin at 6pm on Friday and end on November 9 – comes amid a spike in coronavirus cases across the UK. On Friday, 20,530 new cases of Covid-19 were recorded in the UK – 761 of which were in Wales.As of Thursday, there were 546 coronavirus patients in hospital in the country, 47 of whom were on ventilators. As the second national lockdown for Wales loomed on Friday, Drakeford said the measures “are about saving lives, not Christmas”.“That’s the seriousness of the position we are in,” the first minister said. “Our ambition is we will not need to have this level of restriction again in Wales before Christmas.“I want shops to be able to trade. I want people to be able to prepare. I want to offer people some hope that, provided we all do the right things, then we will still be able to enjoy a version of the holiday that we would have otherwise enjoyed.” Related...

You might have seen that many journalists have just received PlayStation 5 units for review, but today we also got our closest look yet at the PS5’s new DualSense controller thanks to an unboxing video from YouTuber Austin Evans. We already knew that the DualSense has some familiar PlayStation hallmarks — a D-pad and four face buttons on the top half, two analog sticks on the bottom half, four triggers, and, like the PS4’s DualShock 4, a touchpad in the middle — and Evan’s video gives a good look at all of those features and the controller’s new design. But Evans didn’t use the controller with a PS5, so we don’t get to see things like the DualSense’s new haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in action. And despite the DualSense’s box...

Microsoft’s head of gaming and Xbox, Phil Spencer, has hinted that the company is planning TV streaming sticks for its xCloud cloud gaming service. In an interview with Stratechery, Spencer discusses the potential for additional tiers of Xbox Game Pass, which could include a free bundled TV stick to play xCloud games. “I think you’re going to see lower priced hardware as part of our ecosystem when you think about streaming sticks and other things that somebody might want to just go plug into their TV and go play via xCloud,” says Spencer. “You could imagine us even having something that we just included in the Game Pass subscription that gave you an ability to stream xCloud games to your television and buying the controller.” Spencer...
