Kingdom Come: Deliverance has some problems, but its quaint countryside certainly isn’t one of them. In fact the map is maybe the nicest thing about the entire game, so let’s all see how long it takes to walk across it, taking in the sights and trying not to fall off a rock and break a leg.
Of all the different ways I’ve gained new abilities in video games, singing softly to animals as a baby fox is definitely my favorite.
I’ve been excited about Kingdom Come for a long time. Since it was first announced back in 2013, the idea of a historical RPG with simulation leanings sounded fun as hell. Now that it’s out, though, I’m a lot less excited.
Monster Hunter: World is a smash hit. But the game is currently only playable on the PS4 and Xbox One. Wouldn’t it be great to play it on a system you could carry around? You know, like the Nintendo Switch? That, Capcom says, would not be easy.

Two weeks after release Dragon Ball FighterZ’ online still isn’t working reliably. Players complain of disconnects, matchmaking issues and problems connecting with friends. Bandai Namco says the devs are focused on improving online play. Thank goodness. I’d hate to think they’d given up and wandered off.
PS4s are getting a big firmware update today. Probably the biggest addition is Play Time Management, which lets PS4 owners manage their kids’ gaming from their PS4, web browser or smartphone—but changes to the PS4's user interface and menu should please everybody.
Streets of Red is a retro beat ‘em up headed to PS4 and Switch on February 27. There are a lot of side-scrolling brawlers that aim to capture the original arcade experience, but Streets of Red really commits by not allowing you any continues or saves. When you die, it’s game over and you have to start all over.
Hori’s Onyx, available now in Europe, if the first officially-licensed third-party wireless controller for the PlayStation 4. It’s got its good points, like the Xbox-style staggered analog stick layout and one piece d-pad, but the lack of a headphone jack and other key DualShock 4 features might be a dealbreaker.
