Sony Outlines Next Wave of Over 60 PSVR Games

Sony wants you to immerse yourself in its virtual worlds, and outlined plenty of chances to do so in the coming year.

On the official PlayStation blog, Sony showed off over 60 games coming later this year and into 2018 like Sony’s own Gran Turismo Sport.

Other notable games coming to PSVR include Supergiant’s Bravo Team, Bethesda’s Skyrim VR and Doom VFR.

Moss, first shown during E3 2017, is also coming to PSVR before the close of 2017. We had a chance to go hands-on with it, and it turned out Moss was one of the most pleasantly surprising games of E3. In Moss, you help a mouse named Quill on a quest to save her uncle.

Gravel isn’t the only off-road racer Square Enix will release next year. Ahead of the Monster Energy Cup 2017, the publisher today announced the officially licensed motocross game Monster Energy Supercross.

Monster Energy Supercross is developed by the same studio behind Gravel. The game features real-world motocross stadiums, bikes, and athletes from the 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross.

Monster Energy Supercross launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 13, 2018. The game will also release for Nintendo Switch “shortly after.” Gravel is likewise slated to release next year on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can watch eight minutes of gameplay footage from Gravel here.

Judges will be looking at three main components for each entry: originality, creativity, and fun.

Splatoon 2’s Halloween Splatfest Begins Tonight On Nintendo Switch

Splatoon 2‘s next Splatfest competition is scheduled to begin very soon. This month’s event kicks off in North America tonight, October 13, at 9 PM PT/12 AM ET and concludes at the same time tomorrow, October 14.

For the first time since Splatoon 2 launched this past summer, North America’s Splatfest features a different theme than Europe’s. While European players battled over the proper way to hang a toilet roll, players in North America will be settling a more fitting dispute in time for Halloween: which monster is better, vampires or werewolves?

Ahead of the Splatfest, Nintendo is adding a pair of new weapons to Splatoon 2. This week’s free DLC guns are the Custom E-liter 4K and the modified Custom E-liter 4k Scope. These two chargers will be available tonight at 7 PM PT/10 PM ET and can be purchased using in-game currency from the Ammo Knights weapon shop.

Both the Custom E-liter 4K and Custom E-liter 4K Scope come outfitted with the Squid Beakon sub-weapon and Bubble Blower special. The difference between the two guns is their range; the Scope variant can fire further, but it isn’t able to store a charge shot like the standard model.

Nintendo rolled out a new update for Splatoon 2 earlier this week, which made a number of gameplay tweaks to Salmon Run mode and certain weapons, among other fixes. The game also recently got a brand-new map called Snapper Canal.

WWE 2K18 Out Now On PS4 And Xbox One For Some Players

WWE 2K18 officially launches next week, but some PS4 and Xbox One players can start playing this year’s wrestling game a little early. Those who purchase the Deluxe edition can access the title starting today, October 13.

WWE 2K18 is the latest in 2K Sports’ annual WWE franchise. Along with a soundtrack curated by The Rock, this installment features a number of improvements over last year’s iteration, including eight-man matches and an expanded MyCareer mode and free-roaming backstage. It also boasts the largest playable roster in a WWE game to date, with nearly 200 current and classic wrestlers to choose from–including the man, the myth, the legend himself, KFC’s Colonel Sanders.

2K Sports has also announced a slate of downloadable content that will be released for the title. Five different themed WWE 2K18 DLC packs are on the way throughout late 2017 and early 2018, which will add new moves, iconic wrestlers like the Hardy Boyz, and more to this year’s wrestling game.

WWE 2K18 releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 17, with a Nintendo Switch version also slated to arrive sometime this fall. Those who pre-ordered any edition of the game will receive WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle as a bonus playable character.

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) Review

Perhaps the greatest marker of the success of writer-director Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is that it feels both incredibly specific in its depiction of this one family at the same time as being completely universal in its assessment of family. Well, there’s that, and the fact that it is also terribly funny and utterly heartbreaking.

Of course, it should be universal enough. There are certain situations and moments in a family’s existence which, while they may be executed in different fashion are, themselves, easily identifiable to everyone. There is nothing particularly unique when at the start of the film a father, Danny (Adam Sandler), brings his daughter, Eliza (Grace Van Patten), to his father’s house for a final dinner before she goes off to college. There is nothing terribly different in Danny’s father, Harold (Dustin Hoffman), being an undeservedly pretentious artist hoping for one last chance at renown, or Harold’s current wife, Maureen (Emma Thompson), being an awful cook. These are just facts, and while they may not be the facts of your family or mine, they are perfectly understandable.

Our Nintendo 64 Classic Edition Wishlist

Nintendo’s first console with 3D games, the Nintendo 64, revolutionized a number of beloved franchises and genres.

And with the SNES Classic now available, the Nintendo 64 is the next home console in line to conceivably receive the Classics treatment. So what would a possible library for the theoretical N64 Classic Edition look like? IGN boiled the system’s library down to 16 games representing a variety of genres while also making sure to include some of the most influential titles to release on Nintendo’s 64-bit system. Yes, there may be better iterations of some of these games on later Nintendo systems, but many of them are foundational to the N64’s history.
