Haegin makes dreams come true with the latest update to Play Together

I am very predisposed to judging a video game based on their development team; if they listen to their community and have open communication, then I am more likely to play their content. Haegin has just scored some points in this department, thanks to a wholesome update in Play Together. An elementary school teacher from Gyeonggi Province in South Korea emailed Haegin one day, informing them that they had an autistic student who often raved about Play Together in class. He had one wish, to see his favourite dinosaur in the game, and the developers got right to work making this a reality. Ms Quinn and Trey’s Story kicks off, fittingly, in the School at the Plaza. Head inside and you w…

Protea Prime lands in Warframe and brings the mastery of time to the palm of your hand

Protea Prime lands in Warframe and brings the mastery of time to the palm of your hand

It has been teased for a while, but now it is finally time, terrible pun very much intended, to log into Warframe and start grinding for the blueprints as Protea Prime finally arrives. We have also been treated to a new cinema trailer, and it looks pretty impressive. For a quick recap on just who Protea is, she was hand-picked to personally serve and protect Parvos Granum, founder of Corpus. One of the main reasons for this is her mastery of time control, how can you be safer than with someone who wields a literal do-over button? Prime only adds to this powerful kit with increased energy, armour, an additional Poarity mod slot, and a rare Universal Aura slot. The trailer shows just what Pr…

Cassette Beasts gets a release date for mobile and it can’t come soon enough

It has been a long month since Raw Fury hosted the Cassette Beasts Showcase of 2024 and announced the rather exciting news that the action RPG will be coming to mobile. I for one can’t wait, and now we all know when this magical day will be upon us, as the release date is set for June 4th. We must all wait impatiently for around one month and a week before we can head back to New Wirral, or if you haven’t played it before now is the best time. Cassette Beasts was one of 2023's biggest hits and took what everyone loved and missed about classic Pokemon, but upgraded it in the way that Gamefreak really should have. In Cassette Beasts you wander around a delightfully designed islan…

Warframe devstream provides information on upcoming quests and a new trailer for Protea Prime

If you missed the latest Warframe devstream, then you missed quite a bit of interesting material. But fear not! We have the roundup below. Amongst this bumper crop of updates is a look at some Warframe: 1999 concept art, a peak behind the upcoming Jade Shadows quest, and a new trailer for our closest new Prime Warframe. Starting with the most immediate news, Protea Prime is dropping on May 1st, and we got treated to a new teaser trailer for the upcoming time lord. With their ability to rewind time, drop health and energy pickups, or simply go beserk with the new Okina Prime daggers or single-handed Velox Prime pistol, we might soon see a shift in the Warframe meta. If you have ever been…

Order a mountain of pizza as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles make their way to Stumble Guys

Order a mountain of pizza as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles make their way to Stumble Guys

Fresh from clobbering some fools in their current Street Fighter Duel event, those gigantic yet somehow sneaky reptiles are blowing off some steam in Stumble Guys. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be taking their acrobatic prowess to the course, marking Paramount’s second foray into the platformer, following SpongeBob SquarePants and co. They have always been around in some form or another since the 80s, but it seems recently that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are coming back into the mainstream in a big way. We have the surprisingly successful Mutant Mayhem film last year, as well as the aforementioned Capcom crossover. It’s good to see these cultural icons popping up a…

Disney Dreamlight Valley launches two feature-filled updates in May

It’s going to be a good month for players of Disney Dreamlight Valley as May 1st brings not one, not three, but two massive updates. Free players can enjoy Thrills and Frills that come with a new villager, while expansion pass holders can enter The Spark of Imagination to face the catalyst of the Disney dynasty. The free update brings quite a surprising new villager, purely because I am shocked she isn’t already in the game. Daisy Duck will be leading players on a journey of fashion in her Friendship Quest line, which will result in the opening of a new Boutique. And what’s more, you get to run the place. Once the store opens its doors, you can craft your own custom desig…

Zenless Zone Zero opens global pre-registration to some mind-blowing numbers

Zenless Zone Zero opens global pre-registration to some mind-blowing numbers

I have been racking my brain, but I can’t think of another developer besides HoYoverse that has managed to keep multiple live service games at the top of THE games to-play lists, and soon they will be adding one more with Zenless Zone Zero. Pre-registration has opened, and you can get some tasty treats for signing up. Zenless Zone Zero, as well as being a bit tricky to say, is an urban fantasy ARPG set in that most familiar setting; post-apocalyptic chic. Calamities known as Hollows suddenly appeared, creating spatial anomalies that spat out godless monstrosities known as Ethereals, that tore through the earth. All that remains of civilization is based in New Eridu. Maintaining hope,…

The end is nigh for Fort Forinthry as Runescape releases final quest in the story

The end is nigh for Fort Forinthry as Runescape releases final quest in the story

It was a long and harrowing battle, but in the last big update to Runescape, players managed to repel the advance of Zemouregal and give the great undead dragon Vorkath a right good beating. Now, it is time to finish that job as you pursue the injured beast across the land in Requiem for a Dragon. This will be the final quest in the Fort Forinthry story, following the epic Battle of Forinthry. You have captured your adversary, but the fearsome dragon has fled. Uncontent to leave such a threat free in the world, you follow Forkath deep into a new area on the island of Ungael for a final showdown. Rather than an honourable duel, however, you may find yourself at odds with some unfriendly Zamo…

Tarisland opens its doors for pre-registration with some pretty nice rewards to play for

I spend an inordinate amount of my time playing MMORPGs, and I have tried the majority of them, but I still get excited to try the newest offering, so Tarisland finally opening their pre-registration gets my attention. It is almost time to suit up and assault the Black Tower. An issue with some MMOs is that every player of a class feels exactly the same, doing the same moves and damage. Tarisland aims to disrupt this by giving their fans an opportunity to create their own spin on characters. There are nine classes, each with two specializations, and a flexible talent tree to explore. Sure, there will be a meta, but nothing stopping you from saying screw that and putting all your points into…

Grab some pizza and do something with a skateboard as four giant turtles invade Street Fighter Duel

Grab some pizza and do something with a skateboard as four giant turtles invade Street Fighter Duel

Street Fighter Duel is all about honourable fighting, with hand-to-hand combat par for the course, with a few hadoukens thrown in for good measure. Or, you could go a different route, and play as a giant bipedal turtle wielding a weapon, as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles come crashing into the action. I would be surprised if there was anyone out there who hadn’t heard of the TMNT in some form or other, seeing as they have spread across damn near every piece of media available. They are humanoid turtles, they like pizza, and they can kick some serious butt. Enough said. There have been a lot of iterations and stylistic changes done to the Turtles over the years, but old fans will be…

Get ready to read the word spirit a lot of Play Together welcomes the Elves

Mystery and mysticism abound on the island of Kaia, as strange objects appear in Play Together. By exploring this new phenomenon you can meet some new NPCs, get gifts, and partake in some fun events. There is also a new pet incoming which blows all of this out of the water. As you explore Kaia Island you may notice that you keep stumbling across some strange spirit stones. You may even be tempted to collect this, however, doing so as a novice will most likely result in you catching fire or some other outcome you should avoid. Thankfully, there is help. Also hearing of these new stones are the elves, with an Elementalist and Apprentice Elementalist also making haste to the island. With thei…

Athenian Rhapsody gets a release date for its special brand of absurdity

There are some press releases that grab the eye with exciting rhetoric or dropping a recognisable name, and then there are some that draw you in by making you go, 'Did I read that right?'. Athenian Rhapsody is certainly one of the latter, inviting players to make friends and catch IBS. Made by solo developer Nico Papalia, Athenian Rhapsody is an ode to classic and beloved games like Earthbound and Undertale, all whilst lavishing itself in ridiculous humour. You will explore Athens, enjoy mini-games such as weight-lifting, and complete herculean challenges such as Carry A Feather. I can’t tell if the last one is going to be ridiculously hard or easy, and that excites me. A feature tha…

In a piece of news that will surprise absolutely no one who has ever seen the beautiful and cinematic quality of Genshin Impact and Honkai character trailers and the like, miHoYo has announced that they have received government backing to develop films based on their world-famous franchises. The original article was posted on the Shanghai CPC Branch’s Official WeChat Account and states that the Shanghai Municipal Party Committee is bankrolling miHoYos’ foray into animated films. Watching the latest Honkai Star Rail trailers for Sparkle and Acheron, or even as far back as Klee's in Genshin, it doesn’t seem like the giant needs much help, but whose to turn that down? This s…

HoYoverse reveals more details for Version 4.6 of Genshin Impact

HoYoverse has announced some extra information about its upcoming Version 4.6 update to the massive RPG Genshin Impact. Two Worlds Aflame, the Crimson Night Fades will launch on April 24th, and brings a vast new area, a fun minigame, and the arrival of a deadly new friend, or maybe foe. Meeting the Forth of the Fatuai Harbingers, also known as the Knave, on the battlefield as a Weekly Boss will be a huge challenge. She can impose a Blood-Debt Directive on characters, seeing them take more damage, and being unable to heal. Pay this debt, however, and your Charged Attack will be boosted. Luckily for those who fall for Arlecchino, you can recruit her to your side as a five-star Pyro polearm w…
