It’s been nearly 16 years since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was released, and whilst the game is still as enjoyable as ever to play, the graphics haven’t exactly aged very well. If you’ve been following this site for a while you might have come across some videos we share of old games with updated graphics/shaders, oftentimes emulating ray tracing in old games like Need for Speed Underground or Medal of Honor.
While Bethesda has been busy doubling down on the things we didn’t like about the Fallout franchise, Obsidian is all-too-happy to lean heavily the other way with The Outer Worlds. Let’s just hope they don’t fall over. It’s an RPG full of wisecracking, light-hearted humour; a collection of oddball planets where exploration is full of surprises and oddities, whether that be shrink rays or rabid mushrooms. 
We’re fast rolling up to World War Z’s April 16th launch date on PC and consoles. The zombies are infected, humanity is on its last knees, and it’s about time four people teamed up and gained down each and every thing that movies.
EA wants you to forget, just for a moment, all about its other sci-fi shooter that’s arrived out of nowhere and is breaking records, to remember that BioWare’s Anthem is actually coming out next week (sort of).
Ever since we first saw Resident Evil VII: Biohazard at E3 this year it’s been difficult to tell whether it was a rehashed P.T. or a proper Resident Evil game. As it turns out it’s probably somewhere in between, and in a brand spanking new gameplay trailer clocking in at over 10 minutes, you can see it owes a little more to the original Resident Evil than you’d probably expect.
The rest of Fallout 4’s DLC might not have been up to much, barring Far Harbor perhaps, but the upcoming Fallout 4 - Nuka World is looking like a real humdinger. As if we’d need any further convincing beyond the concept of a post-apocalyptic theme park, Bethesda’s gone the whole hog and made an advertising trailer for Nuka World Theme Park starring park mascots Bottle and Cappy.
I still don’t think my brain has quite digested that Shenmue III is happening, let alone the remote possibility that it might be any good. Still, you can’t fault Yu Suzuki and co and for trying and, well, you never know do you? Maybe working in a warehouse for months on end is the sort of activity that stands the test of time. Ys Net has an unenviable task on its hands then, but on the basis of the latest Shenmue 3 screenshots to creep out from the studio, we at last know it’s going to look rather swish.
I could swear Telltale Games’ episodic releases are launch in a glacial fashion even for them. The episodic specialist has announced Tales From The Borderlands: Episode 4 - Escape Plan Bravo is finally out today. It’s the penultimate episode of the Borderlands story, and it’s joined by a trailer that’s probably got plenty of spoilers if you aren’t up to date yet.
A pair of new Forza 5 trailers have hit the track, giving us the first official TV teaser that promises us this is only possible on Xbox One, as well as a behind the scenes look at the Audi team and its new supercar.
