• If you loved the world of Amnesia: The Dark Descent but found it all too scary, then The Shadow of the Ramlord might be more your speed. It’s an hour-long Lovecraftian adventure built using assets from The Dark Descent and its sequel, A Machine for Pigs, and promises to be light on scares but heavy on environmental storytelling, atmosphere and necromancy. They say it’ll appeal to those who enjoyed SOMA, the semi-scary, philosophical survival horror from Frictional Games, the same developer that

  • Crackdown 3 is out now, and players have already started tearing across the city. As well as the singleplayer campaign, you can team up with a mate and cause some mayhem in co-op, but there’s an unexpected caveat: the co-op campaign is locked at 30fps, even when both players are on PC. The singleplayer campaign doesn’t have the same restrictions—you can unlock the framerate—and it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Crackdown having crossplay. Microsoft claimed that the framerate wouldn’t b

  • Alfonso Ribeiro’s suit against 2K and Epic Games over the use of his character’s dance from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is facing a pretty significant obstacle.
