We tested it ourselves, and once you complete your cart transaction of zero dollars, a download of the full 35gb of Knack 2 begins, so it’s definitely not the demo. No word from So...[Read More]

Overwatch hero updates: Mercy won’t be dishing out team revives and D.Va gets a new ability

The sheer crushing disappointment of seeing Mercy revive an entire team won’t be around much longer. In a hero balance update that is now live on the PTR, Mercy has a new ultimate, and her revive ability is now a slow to regenerate secondary that can only resurrect one teammate at a time. You can see lead designer Jeff Kaplan discuss the changes in the video below: Mercy’s new ultimate...[Read More]

Xbox Gamescom roundup: New consoles, trailers and JURASSIC PARK

Gamescom 2017 doesn’t officially start for a couple more days, but that doesn’t mean the big publishers aren’t going to start dropping announcements. First cab off the rank is Xbox, bringing with them a bunch of new trailers for already announced games, some Xbox One console announcements, and a trailer for a whole new game that I bet you can’t guess what it is. So, here we...[Read More]

One does not simply respect consumers: Shadow of War will have paid content

Sons of PC! Of PlayStation! My brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of gamers fails, when we forsake our friends and buy shitty additional content, but it is not this day. An hour of lootboxes and shattered wallets, when the age of common sense comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 gets its best free DLC and its worst microtransactions

This past week, Titanfall 2 dropped its latest free content update in the form of ‘Frontier Shield,’ adding two new maps, camos, balance changes, and best of all, the co-op gametype, Frontier Defense. The first new map is ‘Township’, an urban style arena for the ‘Live Fire’ gametype. I had my doubts about this map, due to all the potential camping spots, but all reports say that it’s one of the be...[Read More]

Take a look at Doomfist’s alternate skins

Although Doomfist is still in the PTR, that doesn’t mean he can’t get down with some new looks. The newest Overwatch cast member got his new outfits today, and they’re pretty damn cool. I’m definitely all about that painted look. Hopefully it’s not long until he makes it into the full game! Watch over Charlie on Twitter @clbraith and don’t forget to follow @load_scree...[Read More]

Doomfist arrives on Overwatch PTR

After a rumour mill that has been churning since before Overwatch actually released, the long awaited villain Doomfist has joined the cast of playable characters. Earlier in the week a snippet of lore was releases detailing Doomfist being broken out of jail by Talon and Reaper, which seemed to signal a possible month long run down of info before a release, but here we are, a few days later and you...[Read More]

See a man in a Crash suit try to be a fair dinkum, true blue Aussie bloke

So, the Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy is out now. Some people, like yours truly, are having a blast with it. Others, like my co-editor Charlie, are struggling to love it thanks to its dated feel. I don’t know why people playing a remaster of a 20-year-old game that prides itself on maintaining the original’s feel expected it to play like anything other than a 20-year-old game, but I ...[Read More]
