    Question: When is a video game remake not a remake? Answer: When it adds enough new ideas and tweaks existing content so that the resulting product is neither a re-hash nor a re-imagining. When it doesn't stop at HD textures and smoother character models, and instead opts for new gameplay, expanded objectives and modern conveniences.When is a remake not a remake? When it's Oddworld: New N Tasty ...

EA plans to add to this selection of games over time, and according to a Game Informer tweet, the publisher has "no plans" to remove content in the future ...

    Respawn has released the full patch notes for the next Titanfall update, which should materialise on Xbox One before 31st July - the release date for the game's next DLC pack, Frontier's Edge. The update adds support for the Black Market and purchaseable Burn Cards plus new Daily Challenges and a message for when a friendly flag carrier is riding your Titan. It'll also move Campaign Multiplayer in amongst the other multiplayer modes, where it will rotate continually through the maps - this should make it a bit easier ...

    Ubisoft takes players to a grittier side of the Trials universe today in "Riders of the Rustlands," the first of six planned Season Pass DLC packs planned for Trials Fusion. Riders of the Rustlands takes place in a wasteland outside of the squeaky-clean cityscapes featured Trials Fusion's core content, challenging riders with level layouts made up of makeshift metal platforms and rusty abandoned structures. The pack introduces six new Classic Trials tracks, two Supercross levels, one Skill Game, and one FMX track, along ...

    "Huzzah! An MMO PC-port confirmed for Xbox One!" I hear you exclaim. Indeed; though approach with caution, brave traveller, as the news comes with a number of caveats. First, it has thus far only been confirmed for Xbox One's Chinese market as a launch title for the region on 23rd September. Actually, that's kind of the only caveat until we hear more. The news was confirmed by publisher Perfect World, via the biggest Chinese console forum, A9VG. The company is also inviting a small group of Chinese gamers to join an ...

    In theory, betas exist so that developers can test out all of a game's core features prior to a final round of iteration and tweaking. In practice, the emphasis seems often to be on putting servers through their paces, rather than making alterations to things like level design, combat mechanics and so forth. Just how much can Bungie reasonably change, then, at this stage in Destiny's production schedule? Well, there appears at least to be scope to fiddle around with voice chat. "We've seen the feedback, and there's quite a bit of ...

    Sometimes, Microsoft's Deals of the Week are full of quirky indie games. Other times, we're handed a bunch of EA Sports titles and Battlefield DLC. Check out the latest reductions below. Notice their cast-iron imperviousness to whimsy, to anything save the coldest and most calculating of commercial sentiments. It's like staring at the Superbowl licensing down one side of a Predator drone, just before it puts a missile through your patio. All these are Gold exclusive as ever.

    Bandai Namco confirmed it's bringing Shadow Warrior to PS4 and Xbox One in Europe on September 26. Majesco's not yet announced a US date beyond "late September," but GameStop's listing of September 23 tallies with the typical three-day gap between regions. Described as a "bold re-imagining" of 3D Realms' 1997 shooter, the new Shadow Warrior hit PC around the same time last year. It retained a few Lo Wang jokes but toned down the stereotyping, delivering a more modern mix of first-person shooting ...

    Before the newest, shiniest consoles launched late last year, it was the Xbox One that was touted as the complete multimedia machine. It's slightly ironic, then, that Sony's beaten Microsoft to the punch in adding Blu-ray 3D support to the PlayStation 4. Last week, we heard the feature was being added in software version 1.75, and today that update's begun rolling out to PS4s. There are still a few things, like DLNA support, the PS4 needs to usurp other A/V gear in your entertainment center, but on the matter of Blu-ray ...

    I'm not sure I could pick a favourite between Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Drax and Star-Lord, but at least with the new Guardians of the Glaaxy skin pack for Minecraft, I won't have to. Lookit how adorable their little cuboid faces are. Marvel editor Ben Morse tweeted the news a few days ago, along with an image of the main character skins. There's not mention of when exactly the skins would be released, but the film opens this Friday, so I'd imagine it wouldn't be too long after that. Is it insufferably nerdy to say that the fact Rocket ...

    Space, as Douglas Adams once wrote, is "vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big", and so by logical extension is Destiny, Bungie's latest interplanetary adventure. You might think otherwise, admittedly, if you limit your investigation to this Reddit thread, which reveals that there will be "only" one explorable area per planet. Posting on NeoGAF, the developer's Eric "Urk" Osborne reassured beta players that the full game is packed with things to see and do. "Destiny's pretty big," he wrote. "It's the biggest game we've ever made ...

    Watch Dogs continues to rise above the summer drought, notching its sixth week in total as the British No. 1. Again, there's not one new release in the UK top 40, so it's not shocking to see the country's games market drop another three percent in revenue this week. The Last of Us: Remastered should reinvigorate the market, but until then we're staving off the tumbleweeds with more music below the break. This week, we're honoring Watch Dogs' achievement with a 1969 rock track that featured memorably in British gangster ...

    You're going to see a whole lot more of Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, Drax and Star-Lord - AKA The Guardians of the Galaxy - very soon. We already knew that the rag-tag group of renegades would bring daring adventures to theaters, Disney Infinity 2.0, and Marvel: Avengers Alliance, but now we can add virtual pinball tables to that list. A Guardians of the Galaxy-themed table will be available for Zen Pinball 2 on PS3, PS4 and Vita starting July 29, and for $2.99 you can bring together all five of the starbound heroes ...

    We can't uphold or defy the law in Battlefield: Hardline until 2015, but thanks to San Diego Comic-Con, we can get a sense of what will unfold in its single-player content right now. According to Polygon's report, Hardline's story follows a pair of straight-shooting cops as they're set up by another group. As a result of being framed, they land in prison, faced with fighting their way out before settling the score with the people who put them there. Polygon notes a video shown to panel attendees depicted urban environments ...

    The Destiny beta is underway, and we've already taken a spin and discussed what we think about Bungie's first project since departing from the Halo series. But remember, not everything is fun and games here - a beta is a test after all, and Bungie would like your help testing their servers. The development studio has put out a call for all beta players who are able to log on today at 2 p.m. Pacific/5 p.m. Eastern to create an in-game flash mob. Those who accomplish this heroic feat will receive a unique nameplate to commemorate ...

Blur Studio, which has had its hand in many of today's most visually spectacular cinematics and commercials - including those for Halo 4 and Batman: Arkham Origins - is the company to thank for Master Chief and friends' high-res makeovers, while 343 Industries and Certain Affinity can claim responsibility ...

The shelves of a store are so cold and lonely, you see. In this video preview, Editor-in-Chief Ludwig Kietzmann and Community Manager Anthony John Agnello explore the continent of Thedas in search of dragons and adventure ...
