News Snatch: Gravel, Overwatch, Dragon Ball FighterZ, And All Walls Must Fall

A round up of video game news. And beards.

How’s your week going? Mine is rubbish, just like last week which is why there was no Friday News Snatch so apologies for that. However, that does mean that this impromptu News Snatch is positively bursting at the seams with gaming goodness, starting with a story trailer for Dragon Ball FighterZ.

According to the blurb, “Warriors suddenly start to fall unconscious with many incidents occuring…” so it sounds like Kevin Spacey is involved.


Staying the world of Dragon Ball there will be a crossover between Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and Dragon Ball FighterZ, with a new game mode, Hero Colosseum, landing for free in the latter game. Hero Colosseum will have its own story mode where players will experience a tactical figurine battle, whatever that is, and there will also be other crossover DLC for purchase.


Here’s a message from Overkill and a quick look at PayDay 2 running on Nintendo Switch. 7/10 for the beards in this one.



As you might have noticed there are lot of games around so here’s an update on some release dates which were announced recently. Dates are for UK unless stated otherwise.

  • Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Marked – 10th November (PS4)
  • Surf World Series – November 10th PS4, XB1, Retail Version)
  • de Blob – November 14th 2017 (PS4, XB1)
  • White Night – 15th November (ios, Android)
  • LocoRoco 2 Remastered – 10th Decemvber (PS4)
  • Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet – February 23rd (PS4)


Golbeza has been revealed as new fighter in the arcade version of Dissidia Final Fantasy. Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will arriving on PS4 early next year.


Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is heading to the stores as a physical boxed product in the first quarter of 2018 with an MSRP of €39.99.


Want to know how the Mass Effect Andromeda story will finish? Then all will be revealed in Mass Effect: Annihilation a new… book. You only have to wait until June 2018 to find out what happens, but as no one cares about the game right now, least of all EA, I can’t see it selling many copies.



A rather belated The Sims 4 trailer from Paris Games Week.



A new gameplay trailer for All Walls Must Fall, the tech-noir tactics game set in Berlin 2089, has been released to celebrate 28th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The game, which features some exceptional beards, is also on sale with 50% off on Steam, taking the price down to just £5.49.


Limited Run Games will be offering a collectors edition of Nex Machina on November 10th.

The standard edition includes the game disc with stylish cover art and goes for $ 29,99.
The crown jewel is Collector’s Edition which includes a game disc with unique collector’s edition cover art, a CD soundtrack, four art prints, and an 18 x 24 inch poster – all packaged in a beautiful embossed collector’s box. This arcade gamer’s wet dream can be obtained for $ 64,99.
Third edition, a game with unique cover art will only be available at PSX event in December.



Smash Hit Plunder is coming to PSVR, it is a multiplayer game where you get to wreck a castle.



North America is getting a Skyrim PSVR bundle, which includes the PS VR system, PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move controllers, and Skyrim VR, all for $449.



Want to know how Overwatch will cater for e-sports viewers? Then check out this update from Blizzard.



A quick update from the developers of Gravel which features some strong beards, 8/10, good work.



A launch trailer for Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, which is bloody good. Something I forgot to mention in my review was that this is the first game where I’ve spotted a male character with hairy shoulders, rather than just fur in the middle of their chest. Aren’t games wonderful?



And Finally, I have no idea what is going here but it appears a child with super powers like flying through the legs of a huge lady with a perky bottom who is fighting a man-shark. The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia comes to the west on 9th February 2018.

    I’m looking forward to Skyrim VR, it’ll be the biggest test for VR yet. And in the meantime a new selection of VR game demos has gone live on the store.

    Considering how much animosity Mass Effect Andromeda gets, it’s still pretty expensive everywhere. I’m keen to play through it, but been waiting for a sub £20 price for absolutely ages…

      You could get it for £17.49 in the current PSN sale (for the next couple of weeks, with the PS+ discount)

      Or you could download the demo version, which rather foolishly gives you long enough with the game to realise it really is as shit as people have been saying.

    Whose got the hairy shoulders in Frozen Wilds? I wonder if armpit hair ever gets long enough to become a shoulder combover?
