Cricket 22 Delayed on PS5 PS4 Due to Aussie Stars Sexting Scandal

Max Paine.Not much happens on the field during cricket matches, but plenty occurs off it apparently. While British cricket finds itself embroiled in an institutional crisis involving racist remarks reported by Azeem Rafiq, Australia has been rocked by a sexting scandal surrounding now ex-captain Tim Paine. All of this has unfolded days prior to the Ashes, and the release of Big Ant Studios’ official video game, Cricket 22. And that, ultimately, means a delay.The sim has only been postponed by seven days, while the developer swaps out the cover art and changes the team lists. “This is the first…

Guerrilla Games Will Dive Deep into Horizon Zero Dawn and Forbidden West with New Podcast

The GAIA Cast starts this week.One of the best things about Horizon Zero Dawn (and presumably — hopefully — about sequel Horizon Forbidden West) is its story and lore. Developer Guerrilla Games presented us with a beautiful open world and filled it with robotic beasts to take down, but it's the context of the world that helps it all stand up. It seems the studio is ready to delve into all that, because it's just announced GAIA Cast, a podcast all about the world of Horizon.As mentioned above, this new podcast series will "dive deep into the Horizon universe", presumably getting into some heavy…

Gotta catch 'em all.Unfortunately for any games releasing in the same week, Nintendo published a duo of new Pokémon games, and both of them occupy numbers one and two on the UK's latest physical games chart.

SpiderMan Gameplay Shared in New Marvels Avengers Hands On

I came in like a wrecking ball.There might be $3,317 worth of Marvel's Avengers cosmetics to buy, but it's because of that you get the likes of Spider-Man's upcoming expansion for completely free. Arriving on 30th November 2021, IGN was lucky enough to go hands on with the web-slinger for two hours, except the video above isn't a result of that. It's footage provided by studio Crystal Dynamics which the site then shares its thoughts over the top of. Not ideal, although at least we still get to see the wall-crawler in action.It turns out the PlayStation exclusive character won't have any story…

Battlefield 2042s Hovercraft and Nightbird helicopter are being nerfed

Following the disappointing worldwide launch of Battlefield 2042, DICE has revealed that it's working on a number of fixes for a few annoying bugs and severe balance problems.Now that the game is out in the wild, many of the issues early adopters called out the week before have now been experienced by a much larger player base. This has brought some of the more egregious bugs to the fore. It's also part of why Battlefield 2042 is currently one of Steam's worst-rated games.Though DICE did release a day one patch already, it mostly included fixes for Hazard Zone, without really touching the major…

All Marvels Avengers Cosmetics Pegged at 3400

Assemble those dollar bills.In a headline that perhaps isn’t a surprise for a live service game, one Marvel’s Avengers fan has taken the time to calculate the cost of all of the title’s cosmetics – and it adds up to an eye-watering $3,317. While all of this content is, of course, completely optional, it’s an astounding figure for a release that’s been available for a little over a year.Cosmetics come in the form of costumes, player banners, and emotes. Crystal Dynamics would argue that the items exist to offer as much choice as possible, and no single user is expected to buy them all.…
