I first played the game in 2000 and have been a big fan ever since. Seeing its remaster announced was, naturally, a huge deal to me, and I’d been greatly looking forward to it. Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is finally available, so I jumped in as soon as I could. This is, undeniably, the same great game as ever, but this honestly isn’t quite the remaster I’d hoped for, even if the results are still more than playable. For most, at least. But the question stands, is Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition worth it? Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is a compilation of the titular game alongside Radical Dreamers, a 1996 visual novel that was later expanded into Chrono Cross itself, with the game’s events being part of the latter game’s alternate worlds. It was translated by fans years ago, but this is the first time it has ever been...]]> I’ve been eagerly waiting for years for Chrono Cross to move beyond the PlayStation 1.

But when played in VR, which the game has supported since its Early Access release in 2020, Phasmophobia evidently becomes that much scarier. However, it seems that the developers did feel entirely content with their implementation of VR until now, as they recently released a major update for Phasmophobia that completely overhauls the game’s VR functionality. Thanks to this new update, the game now supports all currently-released VR headsets as well as any that will come out in the future. Additionally, the update improves the overall VR performance, smoothes out players’ inputs, and patches out nearly all of the bugs associated with the previous VR implementation. As for more specific changes, the update adds a small cursor that will become visible when players try to grab objects, which they can now do either through a button toggle or b...]]> Developer Kinetic Games’ hit horror title Phasmophobia has already scared plenty of players and Twitch streamers on its own.

He did so after Sony refrained from greenlighting a Days Gone sequel, a decision that the company seemed to have made partially due to the game’s underwhelming critical performance. Although Ross may have been disappointed by the decision at the time, he said in a recent discussion with former God of War designer David Jaffe that he has “moved on” from it. And judging by the Days Gone director’s recent announcement that he has joined Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics, he appears to have meant it. Ross revealed this news in a tweet on April 5, which stated that he will serve as a Design Director for the studio. He didn’t share much else about his new role, but he did express excitement over the project he’ll work on, as well as the Crystal Dynamics team at large.

The expansion was initially revealed back in March, and developer Turtle Rock Studios has given players a fresh look at what they can expect to play when it launches next week. In the trailer, we can see two new Cleaners join the roster of playable characters. It introduces Heng, a restaurant owner with serious knife skills and senses for hive entrances, and Sharice, a firefighter with a mighty axe and buffs for her team’s health and armor. While we got a good look at the new Cleaners, we still don’t know how much the expansion will cost.   What else is coming to Back 4 Blood The Tunnels of Terror launch trailer gives us a look at characters and enemies, but there are other new additions to look forward to as well. The update will add Ridden Hives as a new PvE activity for teams. In these dungeon-like activities, players can explore the complex tunnel...]]> The first expansion for Back 4 Blood, Tunnels of Terror, received a new launch trailer today ahead of its April 12 release.

Gamers can now find impressive products from both household names and brands they may not recognize. Marsback likely falls into this latter category for you, but the company’s custom gaming mouse is something decidedly unique with some serious potential. The Marsback Zephyr Pro is a lightweight gaming mouse with a built-in fan that cools the palm, and we received one for review. The Marsback Zephyr Pro comes complete with quality components, RGB, software support, and even onboard memory as well. So does this mouse deserve a spot on your desk, or is the marketing pitch just a bunch of hot air?   Plenty of ideas come and go in PC gaming, but occasionally, something decidedly different comes along that’s more than just intrigue. The concept of using a mouse with a built-in fan sounds absurd at first, b...]]> Significant headway has been made in the gaming peripherals markets over the past few years thanks to new technologies, fierce competition, and improved quality standards.
