    • Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis finds its main character, Gregor Samsa, waking up one morning, suddenly and inexplicably transformed into a giant insect. It's an utterly bizarre premise for a novel that evolves into a tragic story, but as the inspiration for developer Ovid Works' Metamorphosis, Gregor's transformation provides an opportunity to explore a strange idea, the surreal world it spawns, and the peculiar creatures who inhabit it. I went hands-on with the first hour or so of Metamorphosis, which runs with Kafka's idea of transforming into a bug and only seems to get weirder from there. While Gregor wakes up to find himself in a bug body in the novel, the game's Gregor wakes up at his friend Josef's house after a night of drunken celebration. Vaguely hungover, Gregor starts to head out for work, only to find that as he travels the house and through doors, the world transforms around him. He walks through a door to find himself in a larger version of the room he just left--or in a shrunken state. And before long, he's scrambling around on six spindly legs, with his internal monologue transforming from human speech to insectile chittering. The whole situation has a very Alice in Wonderland feel as you explore a surreal world whose rules don't seem particularly rigid. Gregor's first task as a human is to open drawers around the bedroom he awakes in to find the key to the door, and you repeat that same task as a bug. It's a pretty good early indication of how Metamorphosis seems like it'll play out: Metamorphosis is an exploration game about finding ways to traverse its environment and solving puzzles about how to venture from one area to the next. Since you're an insect, a lot of the solutions you have to find about how to get where you're going in an oversized world have to be fairly novel. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Ahead of Ubisoft Forward, the studio has rolled out an update for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. Title Update 2.1.0 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One, and it makes a number of tweaks to the third-person shooter's guns. The full patch notes have been outlined below. The biggest change to Ghost Recon: Breakpoint's weapons with TU 2.1.0 is the addition of new fire rates. Instead of SMGs only having the option to switch between burst- and automatic fire, some guns in the category will now be able to use single-fire and full-auto. The same can be said of certain ASRs. The full list of ASRs and SMGs that have access to these new fire rates are listed below: ASRs With Additional Burst/Automatic Fire Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Death Stranding is just days away from releasing on PC, and after our Death Stranding PC hands-on preview, it looks like quite the impressive port.

It comes with free Prime shipping and arrives as early as next week.

    • While the primary focus of Nintendo's Treehouse Live July 2020 stream was Paper Mario: The Origami King, we also got our first look at a brand-new game from WayForward, the developer of the Shantae series and River City Girls. That title is Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia, and it arrives on Switch later this year. Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia is an action-RPG with a unique battle system that blends real-time and turn-based elements. The game features an original storyline with over 100 quests to take on, as well as more than 80 Bakugan to collect. As part of the story, you'll be taking part in a series of Bakugan tournaments while also investigating abnormal earthquake activity that's been happening in town. During brawls, you'll be running around the field in real-time collecting energy cores for your Bakugan while it does battle. As you collect cores, you'll charge up powerful abilities that your Bakugan can then unleash. In addition to the single-player campaign, you'll be able to battle other players around the world in online brawls. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Competitive communities are a dime a dozen, but you'd be surprised by how far some players go to keep their favorite games alive—even if it means recreating one game within another. Fans of SOCOM: US Navy Seals have recreated the shooter within Fortnite's creative mode and are running their own league. "We have over 20 of the maps across the franchise with all game mode mechanics and rules from the original series," King Yoshi, who is also creating Super Mario 64 in Fortnite, told GameSpot. "We are constantly running tournaments, league seasons, and various other events." SOCOM's Vigilance Map Recreated in FortniteKing Yoshi and other creators have remade maps from across the Sony-published third person shooter, including Crossroads, Bitter Jungle, and Desert Glory. They've also created original maps inspired by level design in SOCOM. Special in-game rules, like the amount of health every player has, friendly fire, available weapons, and match length and structure have been adjusted to match the military shooter as closely as possible.

    • Crysis Remastered was set to have its first gameplay reveal earlier this month, ahead of a July 23 release date. But following the negative reception to the leaked trailer, both the reveal and release date were postponed. At least, for most consoles it seems. Crysis Remastered will, in fact, still launch for Nintendo Switch on July 23. The news was shared on Crysis' Twitter page, which means you only have another two weeks to wait to play the 2007 classic on-the-go with Nintendo's latest console. The Xbox One, PS4, and PC versions were not mentioned in the update. The sudden announcement is curious given the omission of all other platforms, as well as the statement from Crytek to further work on the game to meet fan expectations. It's not clear what is different between this imminent Switch version and those slated for more powerful hardware, and whether the additional work required on them is specific to features not possible on Switch hardware.

    • Nintendo has released a new update for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. This patch is primarily focused on bug fixes, resolving a spate of issues that players could encounter in the game. Nintendo has detailed the full list of changes in its patch notes, but there are a ton of tweaks, many of which could potentially occur in very specific circumstances. Among other things, developer Monolith Soft has fixed issues around Affinity Coins that could arise when starting New Game Plus after lowering character levels. The studio has also patched up a handful of different issues that could cause the game to lock up. Other notable changes: toggling the Don't Notify option in the Notification Settings now turns off recommendations for Casual Mode, and Monolith has fixed an issue that would prevent you from accepting some quests in certain situations. You can see the full patch notes, as taken from Nintendo's support site, below. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Developer Guerrilla Games has shared the official theme song from Horizon Forbidden West's PlayStation 5 reveal trailer. The track has airy vocalizations by German singer Julie Elven and it's heavenly. The almost three-minute song is composed by Dutch sound designer Joris de Man, a composer who has collaborated with Guerrilla on past titles like the Killzone franchise and 2017's Horizon Zero Dawn. The first game, Horizon Zero Dawn, was nominated and won numerous awards for its music and sound design, with de Man securing his second Ivor Novello Award for Best Original Video Game Score for his work on the game in 2018. You can stream the song below from Spotify, or on various other music streaming services like Apple Music, Tidal, YouTube Music, and more. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • One of Ubisoft's big reveals for its Ubisoft Forward event has already leaked, and now the company has produced a brief teaser for Far Cry 6 with a look at its big star. The short clip shows Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito smoking a cigarette, with a short message that we'll see more to come at the event. The leak revealed that Esposito will appear in Far Cry 6, which is supported by this tweet coming from the official Far Cry account. Far Cry 6 will take place in a tropical paradise called Yara, ruled over by the despotic Anton Castillo and his son Diego. Esposito appears likely to be playing the elder Castillo. This tweet appears to acknowledge the leak with a cheeky reference, saying "Anton would not be pleased." And as those who have watched Breaking Bad or its spin-off Better Call Saul can attest, you don't want to get on Esposito's bad side. He also appeared as new Star Wars villain in the Disney+ series The Mandalorian. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
