Assassin’s Creed Origins’ first expansion accidentally came out a week early. Its newest one, the bigger Curse of the Pharaohs, has been delayed a week to March 13. A new official video shows the mystical expansion, hyping a new city, an elaborate new enemy system and even seven new character skills. Looks impressive.
Metal Gear Survive tosses players into a giant wasteland full of zombies and dangerous animals, where they have to loot supplies and build up a massive base. Heather and Paul pilfered potatoes and gaped at nanotech dinosaurs in the game’s single player mode.
Descenders is a game about riding a bike. It’s also the closest I’ve come to playing a Tony Hawk game since, well, there were good Tony Hawk games to play.

“Toxic behavior doesn’t just hurt the individual it hurts our entire industry,” said the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, during a keynote address at the 2018 DICE summit. He also touched on low morale following the launch of the Xbox One and the need for more diversity in the gaming industry. You can watch it here.
The Metal Gear series’ future was uncertain after creator Hideo Kojima left Konami. Metal Gear Survive tosses away stealth and politics in favor of zombies and loot. I’ve played about five hours of the game and so far, while it captures the feeling of braving the wilderness, it’s also a slow grind.
Superhot is a strange game that’s both hectic and tactical. If you missed it the first time around, it’s one of the games in March’s Xbox Live Game with Gold lineup. As always, these games are only “free” with an Xbox Live Gold subscription.
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.
Xbox mobile apps now include party chat functionality. The feature rolled out yesterday, allowing people with either the android or iOS Xbox app on their phone to create or join an Xbox Live Party even when they’re away from their console.
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.
Assassin’s Creed Origins’ new non-violent educational mode will feature 75 historical tours that range from five to 25 minutes, according to an official Q&A. They’re set in the game’s open world and cover mummies, cultivation, the Library of Alexandria and more. Discovery Tour will be free for Origins owners on Feb.…
Kingdome Come: Deliverance, a historical RPG that has had folks excited for a long time now, is finally out this week. And when it hits, anyone picking it up will have one hell of a download waiting for them.
Joining the likes of Toy Story, Monster Inc. is also coming to Kingdom Hearts III, a game that is still scheduled to come out this year. Oh good.
