Which is why some folks may want to start taking a look at the newly announced Soundfall from some former Epic developers that make up Drastic Games. As you may have already guessed, Soundfall looks to combine rhythmic style gameplay with the dungeon crawling stable of action and adventure.

    Robot Gentleman, the development studio behind 60 Seconds! have announced a follow-up game called 60 Parsecs! Much like its predecessor, 60 Parsecs! gives you 60 seconds to gather as much as you can to survive before you're jettisoned into space.

    Seems fair.

    Also, it needs to be said that a parsec is a unit of length, not of time. I blame this common misconception on that damned Star Wars all the kids like these days.

    An announcement is expected to take place soon.

    For a little while now, rumors suggested that Xbox will begin to offer many of their first-party titles on competing hardware platforms. Just this week, those rumors were given more substance from a number of sources that say games such as Starfield, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Hi-Fi Rush, and even Gears of War could end up on PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch.

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
