    Dark Souls Inspired Mortal Shell Announced
    by Shawn Zipay
    The developers made the comparison themselves.

    A new contender for the "Souls-like" blanket umbrella was just announced. Mortal Shell is an upcoming action-RPG currently in development by the small development team Cold Symmetry and set to be published by Playstack. The announcement comes complete with a brief teaser trailer, screenshots, and some general gameplay details.

    We know already that Mortal Shell is most certainly inspired by the Dark Souls games. Besides...

    Persona 5 Royal Released on PS4
    by Shawn Zipay
    A celebration of high praise.

    Persona 5 Royal is out now for the PlayStation 4 and only the PlayStation 4. If you haven't already checked out our Persona 5 Royal review, you should do that. If you don't like reading anything at length, I can simplify the review to be: "5 outta 5. Amazing game. Buy now."

    If you are already sold on picking up the game, chances are you have it downloaded and have maybe already started playing it today. If you haven't yet picked...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Released as PS4 Timed Exclusive
    by Shawn Zipay
    Yeah, we're back on that timed exclusive BS again.

    There was a tasty rumor that kicked up recently suggesting that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered would be released today. It was partially true. On Tuesday, March 31st, a remastered release of Modern Warfare 2's campaign was released, but only on the PlayStation 4.

    It's a timed exclusive to the PlayStation 4 until April 30th. If you still want to purchase Modern Warfare 2 Remastered on either the Xbox...

    The Outer Worlds Switch Release Date Announced
    by Shawn Zipay
    Fight for or against the corporate worlds on June 5.

    Obsidian Entertainment, Virtuous Games, and Private Division announced that the Switch release of The Outer Worlds is scheduled for June 5. You won't have long to wait before you can either pick up The Outer Worlds on either a physical cartridge release or through digital download via Nintendo's eShop. This is actually an updated release date for the game as it was initially slated to arrive in March instead of June.

    PONG is Becoming an RPG
    by Shawn Zipay
    Yes, that Pong.

    Atari announced PONG Quest, a new role-playing game that is based off of the classic PONG. If you are wondering just how they can make an RPG out of PONG, you certainly aren't alone. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that this is an April Fools joke, right? I thought so too! I really did. And then I kept reading the press release I was sent. Then I saw the trailer reveal (seen below) and the key art in the press kit. It was only then, after I looked at everything,...

    Valve Offers Suggestions on Reducing Steam Bandwidth
    by Shawn Zipay
    Budget that bandwidth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Everyone is at home. If not, they probably should be. 2020 has been crazy wild and it's still only March. One of the things people have been doing more of, is playing games. What else is there to do when you're under quarantine? Work? HA! Screw that!

    The problem with being at home all the time like this, is that the network in your home, country, or even globally can be impacted significantly. People have more time now...

    Archaeology Skill Added to RuneScape Today
    by Shawn Zipay
    A new skill and story await long-time fans.

    On March 30, Jagex added in a new skill, Archaeology to the long-running RuneScape MMO. This new skill is considered to be a major addition to the game. It introduces new gameplay elements along with an entirely new "epic" storyline that is "steeped deep in lore." How deep does that archeology lore go? Well, why don't you dig in to find out?

    Nintendo Reportedly Working on Multiple 'Remasters' of Classic Mario Games
    by Shawn Zipay
    2020 is the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. after all.

    A new rumor fired up today, March 30th. This rumor, which comes from "multiple sources" close to videogameschronicle.com, says that Nintendo is working on a number of Mario related remasters that will hit the Nintendo Switch later this year. Not only will there be some Switch remasters of classic titles, but they even heard a little rumor about a new Paper Mario coming. All of this is supposedly due to be revealed...

    He does not mention it's for Valve. He doesn't specify any company.

    However, it could be inferred given his work history: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0788587/

    He has some games outside of Valve titles that it could be, but not necessarily any I would consider to be a "blast from the past" nor any that would be anywhere near the hype of HL: Alyx, except for a new Half-Life. I would legit be a bit upset if his idea of a blast from the past was a sequel to Blood...

    If it's Valve though, Gunman Chronicles is certainly from the past, but only really a blast if you're me.

    Shapiro hints that his next project is a "blast from the past."

    Though Valve has just released Half-Life: Alyx, it wasn't exactly the Half-Life game many fans of the series wanted. Sure, it's an absolutely fantastic game but it's not exactly Half-Life 3, you know? Though it took Valve almost 13 years to get any sort of a new Half-Life game released after Half-Life 2: Episode Two, there may actually be something else coming sooner than you may think.

    GameStop Closing Over 300 Stores Permanently

    Was it worth it?

    GameStop announced that it is closing over 300 stores this year. These closures are part of their continued efforts to "de-densify" and was announced during the latest earnings call for the dying gaming focused retailer. Last fiscal year, the company revealed that they closed 321 stores. This brought their total number of locations to 5,500 storefronts. This year, GameStop's CEO George Sherman says that they have plans to match or possibly exceed last year's...

    Try it before you maybe buy it.

    Once upon a time, there existed these things called "demos." Demos were free little pieces of a full game that allowed players, players like you, to try out a game before deciding whether or not to purchase the full game. These days, you may think about how many pre-release betas are in all actuality, renamed demos. You are probably usually right in thinking that.

    However, a real and proper demo was actually released today. It's...

    Starting right now, Nintendo Switch owners can add Catherine: Full Body to their eShop wishlists. Alternatively, they can pre-order the game from select retailers for a special sheep keychain. Whatever is decided upon, it would be wise to get those orders in fairly soon because Catherine: Full Body will be out on the Switch on July 7.

    EA Returning to Nintendo with Burnout Paradise for the Switch
    by Shawn Zipay
    It's not new, but at least it's something.

    Electronic Arts has largely ignored Nintendo's platforms for a number of years now. Even when they released a handful of games on Nintendo platforms, they usually just released feature stripped versions of a few of their sports titles like FIFA. Well, it seems as though EA may slowly be coming back to Nintendo. It begins with a low risk testing of the waters.

    Later in 2020, EA will release Burnout Paradise Remastered on the Nintendo...

    Oh yeah, totally. I'm glad they did what they wanted to and not just churned out a sequel they weren't happy with. I think there are few studios out there that would be totally fine with something like this. But it's Valve. They even promised to release the updated Source 2 Hammer tools near-ish to the launch of Alyx. So those are coming soon too.

    Plus, Valve built up most of their portfolio from games that began as mods. CS, TFC, Day of Defeat, DOTA, Alien Swarm (was UT2K4 mod), Dota...

    I mainly take issue with the sentiment that developers would be a bit miffed with someone modifying their game when most people can't play it :P.
    I believe games are art not just products, so the fact that this game isn't aiming to be available, despite marketing and using the name of a franchise that millions of fans have been craving to see return for 13 years, is totally fine.

    Fast-Paced FPS 'Bright Memory' Leaves Early Access Today

    For those looking for a FPS and melee combo action game.

    The 1.0 release of Bright Memory is now available on Steam and GOG.com, having just left Early Access. This is a "high-octane, visually stunning FPS made by a solo developer at FYQD Studio." This is a bit of an odd release, so try to stick with me on this.

They also note that DOOM Eternal was the best selling game on Steam for most of the week and has managed to pull in over 100,000 concurrent players at its peak.
