More than three years after the release of its time-rewinding, episodic adventure Life Is Strange, French video game developer Dontnod Entertainment is in the midst of developing a sequel. While we don’t know much about it, except that it focuses on new characters in the same universe, we’ll learn more on June 26th when Dontnod releases a free, one-off game called The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. Set in another fictional Oregon town called Beaver Creek three years after the original Life is Strange, Captain Spirit will take place over the course of a single Saturday morning. It follows Chris, 10-year-old boy who imagines he has superpowers. Co-creative director Raoul Barbet says that Chris was a character Dontnod came up with while working on Life is Strange 2, but they wanted to do something more in-depth with him. “As a 10-year-old boy, you’ve got this powerful imagination we all have as a boy, as a lonely boy,” he tells The Verge. “We … [Read more...] about The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit will pick up three years after Life is Strange
There are no trade shows quite like E3 in the world today. It's a place where fans and press alike get the opportunity to play brand new games long before they are announced, as well as enjoy an in-depth look into what the big game companies have planned for the next year and change. This event is historically seen as a fight between Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony to see which company can wow players with the best presentation, and while it's clear Sony is ending E3 with more than a few unanswered questions regarding crossplay experiences the list of upcoming games was nothing short of a spectacle. Here's a look at what we thought were the best things to come from E3 2018 for PlayStation 4 fans!

More than a year after his expulsion as the CEO of Telltale Games, co-founder and former CEO Kevin Bruner is suing the game development company, according to the Marin Independent Journal. The suit, seeking recovery of financial damages, has been described by Telltale as “meritless” and “an apparent means of extracting revenge on a company already under financial strain.” Rather than owing Bruner money, they say, the lawsuit is comprised of “baseless and careless accusations of petty revenge.” Telltale is best known for its resurrection of episodic adventure games. Its work has included the critically acclaimed take on The Walking Dead, as well as original stories based on HBO’s Game of Thrones and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Although the court filings have been redacted to ensure “confidentiality and financial privacy,” Bruner alleges that the company was obligated by contract to give informational support as he … [Read more...] about Former CEO and co-founder sues Telltale Games
When PT — a playable teaser for Hideo Kojima’s reboot of Silent Hill — left the PlayStation Store in 2015, it took on an urban legend status. No longer downloadable and with the larger game canceled to boot, only those who already had PT on their system could continue to play it. But after Sony’s E3 press conference earlier this week, some fans think that the legend isn’t entirely dead. PT originally came out in 2014 and instantly became viral on social media. In a departure from most horror games, PT scared players largely by making them walk through a hallway over and over again; the appeal was in how even the mundane could be terrifying in the right hands. As players dove deeper into the game, they realized that there was a much larger mystery hiding within it. To solve it, fans from around the world had to cooperate and share knowledge about how to keep progressing. Once players reached the end, they were surprised to find that PT was actually a teaser … [Read more...] about Fans think PT lives on in new Death Stranding footage
