Following a report that it would be launching in February, Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono has confirmed that Street Fighter V will be arriving on February 16, and in the next year after that launch, half a dozen DLC characters will also be launched. The launch date was confirmed at Sony’s Paris Games Week in recent days. This is a little earlier than the previously rumored Spring 2016 launch.
It has been a long, frustrating waiting game, but the journey is finally over and Batman: Arkham Knight has been re-released for the PC. This new launch follows its original launch earlier this year; the game was quickly pulled after the massive number of bugs became known, and from there it was a few months before buyers got a patch to fix the problems. Now, finally, the game has been released and is, hopefully, as functional as it should have been the first time around.
Recording games and sharing the footage is easy if you're on one of the newer consoles, but not so much if you're getting your gaming fix using your Android tablet or smartphone. Enter Google's newest announcement: the Google Play Games app has been updated with a record and share feature, allowing players to capture videos of their big wins and then share it with friends, family, and enthusiastic strangers.
Nintendo is pushing out a big update for Mario Maker on November 4, and with it will come the ability to add checkpoint flags, refine power-ups, an Event Courses hub, and more. Mario Maker is the tool through which fans can create their own Mario levels; we’ve seen some pretty difficult levels surface since its launch, including one that is nearly unbeatable.
You’ve been preparing for it — maybe you’ve even shelled out for the special beer — and now it is nearly upon us: Fallout 4 arrives next month for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Those playing it on the Xbox console will have a special controller option thanks to Bethesda, which is teasing gamers with a bright blue controller up for pre-sale in its online store. The controller is only offered for Xbox One, and it’ll arrive alongside the game.
Earlier this week, Amazon filed a lawsuit against more than a thousand individuals who allegedly offered to post fake reviews on Amazon in exchange for measly sums of money. The company did this for the expected reasons: fake reviews result in jaded customers, and the value of the company’s reviews plummet. In light of that, it is especially bad timing for employees of Rock Band 4’s developer, Harmonix, to get caught posting positive reviews for its own video game.
When you talk about Japanese RPGs or JRPGs, Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest will most likely be at the very top of that list. There are, however, some that do manage to do a stellar job at enticing players from both halves of the world. One of those is the Tales or Tales of series, and its latest, Tales of Zestiria, has just been released. Aside from being the first Tales of game released in nearly three years, this is also the first to be available on the PC, no emulator required.
The formula for an FPS game is pretty simple. You run around, shoot enemies, die, respawn. Rinse and repeat until the match is done. Right? Well, a new game is looking to change up that formula ever so slightly. The aptly-named title One Life (currently on Steam Greenlight) aims to give players one chance to play their game. Should you die, you will be forever locked out of the game.
There's no doubt that Halo 5 is one of the most highly-anticipated titles of the year. If you're excited about picking it up, popping in the disc, and playing straightaway, though, you're in for a little disappointment. As is the trend these days, Halo 5 is getting a day 1 patch, and it's a doosey: according to 343 Studio's Josh Holmes, you can expect a 9GB download once the game drops.
In a trailer released today, Telltale Games showed off Tales from the Borderlands - Finale: The Vault of the Traveler, the final installment of its game series.

The next day, October 21, it will be released for the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. Finally, on October 22, the game will be released for Android and iOS, covering the gamut of gaming devices.
