Shenmue 3 In Development For PS4 According To Alleged Leaked Image
An image that has appeared online suggests that Shenmue 3 could be in development for PS4.  With E3 just around the corner, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that a tease for Shenmue 3 is an easy troll and, for that reason, we’re pretty skeptical about the truth of the rumour (though, of course, we’d love it to be true).   According to Games Talk, who published the image, Square Enix, in partnership with Sega, will release an HD remaster of the first two Shenmue ga...

Has Rockstar Lied About GTA 5 Story DLC?
You might be surprised to hear that Rockstar and Take-Two have said that there are no plans for any GTA 5 story DLC and that they’ve never made any announcements on story DLC GTA 5.   We say surprised, because story DLC for GTA 5 has been mentioned multiple times by Rockstar since GTA 5’s release.   Take this Rockstar Newswire post from April 2014, in which Rockstar said: “later this year, look for even more additions to both Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand The...

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s Hat Removal Stealth Mode Is Hilarious
Our favourite part of the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate reveal has to be when it shows off the game’s ridiculous stealth mode. Apparently, if you want to be less suspicious, you just need to take your hat off and crouch down a bit. Logic would tell you that would actually make you stand out more, but who are we to argue. If you fancy seeing the whole of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s gameplay walkthrough, you can find it below: ... [Read More]
