The Elder Scrolls Online Is Coming To PS5 And Xbox Series X With New-Gen Enhancements
Other / 31. 3. 2021

In the shadow of its big Oblivion expansion, The Elder Scrolls Online makes the jump to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S this summer with the Console Enhanced edition. As the name implies, this updated port takes advantage of the current console’s power by allowing ESO to run natively on those systems, giving the game’s performance and graphical fidelity a big shot in the arm. The update arrives on June 8 and comes free of charge to those who own the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of ESO. Console Enhanced bumps the game’s framerate from 30 frames per second to 60 while playing in Performance Mode. Fidelity Mode nets you native 4K visuals and 30 fps. According to the official press release, load times have also been cut in half.  ESO’s draw distance has also been nearly doubled across the board, so you can gaze even further out into Tamriel’s horizon. Other graphical perks include improved reflections and shadows, circular depth of field for more realistic background views, as well as high-resolution textures and updated antialiasing. It also sports better ambient occlusion and screen space global illumination for improved lighting.  Click here to watch embedded media Console Enhanced will…

Sam & Max VR adventure This Time It’s Virtual heading to Oculus Quest in June
Other / 31. 3. 2021

Wise-cracking anthropomorphic crime-fighting duo Sam & Max will be making their VR debut on Oculus Quest this June in developer HappyGiant’s brand-new adventure outing Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual, with releases on Steam, Viveport Infinity, and PSVR to follow. Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual is the first entirely new video game outing for the Freelance Police since Telltale’s third season of Sam & Max adventures, The Devil’s Playhouse, in 2010. It sees the dubious dog and bunny duo indulging in appropriately outlandish VR-enabled mini-games as they explore Cap’n Aquabear’s rotting theme park. “Even multimedia evil-slappers like Sam & Max could use a hand,” explains HappyGiant of its new VR endeavour, “and this time they’re using the incomprehensible magic of virtual reality to invite the player into their off-kilter world for a furious day of monster-slaying, obstacle courses, responsibly discharged firearms, and, of course, saving the entire freaking world.” Read more

The Best Metroidvanias
Other / 31. 3. 2021

The genre of the “Exploration Platformer,” or “Platformer Adventure,” or you know what, let’s just call it like it is, the Metroidvania – or just “Metroid-like” if you’re a purist – is one that has truly blossomed over the last decade or so and spawned some truly incredible 2D games, several of which even give the forefathers of the genre a run for their money. But for this list, we wanted to leave Samus and Alucard out of it and let the non-Metroids and Castlevanias have some time in the spotlight. So with that in mind, let’s take a look at our picks for the top 10 Metroidvanias, that aren’t actually a Metroid or Castlevania. [poilib element=”accentDivider”] 10. Shadow Complex Hitting Xbox Live Arcade back in 2009, Shadow Complex was the right game at the right time to reinvigorate the Metroidvania genre. An excellent blend of sci-fi action with a compelling story, satisfying progression, and its 2.5-D perspective offered some of the best graphics we’d seen in the genre to date. It was a refreshing update to a beloved style of game that, at least in 2009, seemed to have fallen out of favor with developers and the public at…
