News Snatch: Diablo III, Dying Light And Free PC Games

It’s time to frag like it’s 1999 according the newly announced PC shooter, Toxikk.

The game has been designed as a spiritual successor to the fast paced arena shooters of the late 90s and early 2ks, there is no leveling, no skill-trees, no perks, no cover systems, no classes, no configurable weapons and no iron sight aiming.

I can hear the CoD fanboys screaming already, but if this is your sort of thing head on over the official site.

Nosgoth, the Legacy of Kain spin-off,  will be available to play for free on Steam from August 7 for three days, for more details check out this FAQ.

Behind the scenes of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Episode 2, From Pandora to the Moon, explores Pandora’s moon, Elpis, as a new environment, along with all the new weapons fans can expect to find in the game.

An unreleased Duke Nukem game for the PSP has been discovered in the archives of the Library of Congress, which is slightly more original than “behind the sofa” I guess. Duke Nukem: Critical Mass was released for the the Nintendo DS and David Gibson, a moving image technician at the Library of Congress, has discovered the original source disc for the PSP version game.

“I realized then that in my computer was the source disc used to author the UMD for an unreleased PlayStation Portable game. I could feel the lump in my throat. I felt as though I had solved the wizard’s riddle and unlocked the secret door,” said David, perhaps getting slightly over excited.

I have no idea what EA are trying to tell us in the new The Sims 4 trailer.

Activision have no plans for a subscription service similar to EA Access, at least not yet. Yay?

The XCOM board game includes an app to use on your iPad, which seems a bit odd when XCOM itself is available for the iPad.

You may remember me having a bit of a moan as Blizzard were dithering about patching Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4, well I have good news everyone!

One more cool piece of news for PS4 players: the next-gen console architecture makes it much easier for us to offer ongoing patch support for the PS4 version of the Ultimate Evil Edition. This means that as we continue to patch the game on PC, we’ll now be able to roll out related patch content, as appropriate, on PS4 as well. It’ll take some additional time beyond the PC patch rollout, but we’ll get them to you as quickly as possible.

The Dying Light Gamescom trailer focuses on the four player co-op mode and looks rather awesome.

And Finally, FishPlayPokemon is an actual thing.


  1. The Dying Light game has me hugely interested. However, I never really believed it was going to be 4-player co-op because we kept on seeing the single player stuff. Will the co-op be like Dead Island (Riptide)? If so, bloody awesome news. The whole game to enjoy… with friends. Bring that shit on! :-)

    • Yeah, I’m liking the look of this. I forgot about it but’s it just placed itself firmly on my radar.

      Co-op games are definitely beginning to be the way forward for me now ever since I bought those Sony (gold) Headphones. I feel compelled to use a mic more now as it works a treat.

      • They’ve always influenced what I play hugely. Sure, single player campaigns are usually wonderful in many, many ways. However, co-op usually wins me over simply because I’m a sociable bugger and like seeing friends (even if it’s on Skype whilst we game together).

  2. Too bad the fish went for Charmander, he’s gonna spend some time defeating Brock. If he ever gets there.

  3. I’m just checking for pictures…..

    Carry on.
