PS5 Rating Spotted for the Poorly Received Serious Sam 4

German rating uncovered.German ratings board USK has handed an 18+ age rating to a PlayStation 5 version of Serious Sam 4, which hasn't been confirmed at the time of writing by developer Croteam. The game does have a PS4 version on the way, but this new bit of information all but confirms it's getting a native PS5 edition too. A Google Stadia exclusivity deal kept Serious Sam 4 off PS4, with the title releasing on both the streaming service and PC last year.The problem is that it doesn't sound like we were missing out on very much.

Mini Review Deaths Door PS5 Indie Darling Is a Tightly Designed Joy

Open up.Death's Door released to rampant critical acclaim on other platforms earlier in the year, and it's easy to see why. This is a lovingly crafted isometric action-adventure, stacked with engaging exploration, tense action, and a wonderful atmosphere. It draws obvious inspiration from The Legend of Zelda as you journey across an interconnected map, gathering spells and weapons that will help you progress through increasingly dangerous environments.You play as a Reaper — a small, characterful crow out on their first mission to claim the soul of a powerful creature. Unfortunately, your inaugural…

A Group of Fans Are Reviving PS3s Online Multiplayer with Emulated Servers

Killzone 2! Warhawk! MotorStorm!The PlayStation 3 had a lot of cracking online games, didn't it? Even from Sony itself, there were plenty of offerings for those looking to get stuck into some multiplayer.

Unfortunately, most, if not all, of Sony's servers for PS3 online functionality were shut down years ago as the company looked to the future. That's not stopped some industrious fans from working to bring these classics back, however.A group calling themselves PSONE…

DICE forgot to add collision to some Battlefield 2042 buildings so players are hiding in them

Of the many, many bugs and technical problems players have been coming across in Battlefield 2042 since release, one in particular may be more funny than disturbing.Battlefield 2042 maps are massive, much bigger than even the biggest maps in the series up to that point. This was done to support 128 players, but naturally created its own side effects. For one, the maps have a lot of dead space and open areas with no cover, as players travel between capture points.This emphasis on size has left the edges of maps less detailed, or worse. Reddit user Darktoothone discovered that for some of those…

quotA very bright futurequot Dedicated Halo players have their say on Halo Infinites multiplayer

I think it’s safe to say at this point that Halo Infinite’s multiplayer is pretty good, a blast from the past to an older style of FPS with a few much needed injections of modern design philosophy here and there to keep things fresh and interesting. If I had to rate my time with the game so far, I’d say it sits comfortably amongst the series’ best. Perhaps, in time, it could even topple one of the top three…But who elected me king of Halo, ranker of games and determiner of series quality? No one, which is why I wanted to reach out and talk to individuals with a passionate…

Fall Guys Season 6 Is a Party Spectacular Set to Be Revealed Later Today

Livestream to show off new stages and more.Fall Guys has become one of those games where it still feels brand new, but it simultaneously feels like it's been around forever.

Battlefield 2042s C5 explosives may be doing less damage stuck to vehicles

Battlefield 2042, like every Battlefield before it, includes throwable sticky explosives. In this case, they're called the C5, no doubt a futuristic version of the popular C4. But unlike older games, DICE's latest looks to be treating them differently.While you can throw the C5, stick it to vehicles - and even Casper's drone for a special delivery - the damage values look to be different depending on where the C5 is placed. Reddit user Div2691 picked up on this while trying to destroy a tank using C5 explosives.According to their findings, and as you can see in the video below, the C5 does more…
