Is it that time again? Welcome back to another To play News roundup, courtesy of We Got This Covered. In our last review we had some unconventional stories, notably a Lil Baby/Queen Elizabeth II hodgepodge, which isn’t something you normally see in a game synopsis, but as the saying goes – always expect the unexpected. We also had an update (sort of) on the upcoming Metal Gear Solid feature film, which has suffered so many delays, it might as well be The new mutants (2020). Thankfully, Oscar Isaac has assured us that no matter how long it takes, the ball will roll.
In today’s roundup we have news from the resident Evil Universe, a shocking statement comparing the works of Rocksteady Studios and WB Games Montréal’s Batman-related games, and a new gaming brand could be on the way. All of that and more awaits, so pause those games, save those files, and discard those snacks. We go inside.
The fans are foaming at the mouth Resident Evil 4 Remake trailer delivers a heaping dose of nostalgia
Capcom is at the door Resident Evil 4 Remake has unveiled its story/extended gameplay trailer and fans are losing their minds. The previously announced remake will reinterpret 2005’s third-person shooter of the same name, which has long been considered one of the best resident Evil games ever made. Obviously, Leon S. Kennedy is starring in what appears to be a promising, nostalgic reimagining of a beloved cult classic, but while Leon is the main event, he shares the spotlight with fan favorite Ada Wong. As one would expect with the passage of time, the remake looks visually stunning and the graphics are stunning, so it’s not surprising that fans are swarming with affection for the long-awaited release. It seems the only downfall is the updated appearance of Luis Sera, a biologist who assists Leon Kennedy and Ashley Graham.
DC players believe that “Gotham Knights” plays second fiddle to the previous one Arkham series
After the reviews for WB Games Montréal were flooded Gotham Knights, it was clear to see that longtime Batman fanatics had a sour taste in their mouths. Less than 24 hours after debut Gotham Knights has received backlash from players for not casting it in a very flattering light; it was even unfavorably compared to Batman Arkham Series (origins, asylum, city and Knight) with feedback suggesting it lives in the shadow of its predecessors. Batman: Arkam Asylum launched one of the biggest franchise debuts in gaming history and allowed the hugely influential DC Universe to transition into the gaming world. Although Gotham Knights flopped, hopefully the Batman saga can rise from the ashes when Rocksteady games are released Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
Technology group Philips announces new gaming brand
Philips, one of the leading innovators in the technology field, has announced that it will launch a gaming brand called Evnia.
