Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players are terrified of getting banned for playing Zombies to high rounds
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players are saying they're terrified of playing the Zombies mode to high rounds after a recent spate of high-profile ban reports from those who proclaim their innocence. The Zombies community has this week surfaced a disconnect message called "Sail 630 nuclear bug", which has popped up on the PC version of Treyarch's shooter. Players have reported receiving this error message, which forces a return to the main menu, after reaching a reasonably high round in Zombies (between 40 and 70, reports indicate). Read more

Forget The Past, Nintendo's Future Is Focused On New IP And "Staple Series"
Resurrecting forgotten franchises does not appear to be a priority. Would you like to see Nintendo revive some of its older and perhaps lesser-known IPs for the Switch generation? Well, if Shuntaro Furukawa's latest comments are anything to go by, it's probably best not to get your hopes up. During an interview with Nikkei earlier this week, the Nintendo president explained how much of the company's current focus was on "new ideas" and what's next (aka the future).

THQ Nordic's Destroy All Humans remake heading to Switch this summer
THQ Nordic is bringing the high-gloss extraterrestrial terrorising of last year's Destroy All Humans remake to Switch this summer, with the game set to arrive on 29th June. Developed by Black Forest Games, the Destroy All Humans remake takes the 2005 PS2 and Xbox original - in which evil alien clone Crypto-137 rampages across 1950s Earth, obliterating every man, woman, and bovine in his path - and gives it a gloriously lavish lick of paint. The fundamentals remain the same - meaning on-foot and UFO-bound missions across six large, open levels in which players cause devastation using psychokinetic powers and alien weapons of dubious purpose - but it's all given a fresh lease of life with presentational enhancements including some truly sumptuous visuals.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World remake gets June release date
Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, developer Jankenteam's remake of the much-loved Sega Master System classic, will be making its way to PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch on 24th June. The original Alex Kidd debuted on the Master System three and a half decades ago, back in 1986 (apologies to those out there suddenly feeling very old), and charted the adventures of the titular martial artist as he set off to rescue King Thunder's son. Those adventures manifested as a bright, breezy puzzle-platfomer (one which Eurogamer's Christian Donlan described as "f*cking great" to me earlier, if you're looking for some kind of quality gauge), and Jankenteam's remake will offer all that, plus more.

Say goodbye to mandatory space taxis as Elite Dangerous: Odyssey's alpha enters Phase Two
Elite Dangerous players in the Odyssey alpha can finally wave a less-than-fond farewell to the expansion's tortuous space taxis as Frontier embarks on Phase Two of its pre-release testing today, 8th April, giving Commanders access to their own ships for the first time. Previously, Odyssey's AI-piloted Apex Interstellar taxi service was the only way to get around the galaxy during the alpha, forcing players into an endless series of lengthy journeys with nothing much to do but stare out the window at the infinite expanse.

Bloober Team's haunted house horror Layers of Fear heading to PSVR later this month
PlayStation VR owners with a lust for unease and a taste for the disorientating will soon be able to traipse the halls of Bloober Team's psychedelic haunted house horror Layers of Fear VR, which opens its door on 29th April. Originally released for PC at the tail-end of 2019, Layers of Fear VR does pretty much exactly what it says on the label, delivering a more intensely immersive version of Bloober Team's delirious 2016 horror specifically designed for virtual reality headsets. Layers of Fear, if you're unfamiliar, tells the tale of a tortured painter as he attempts to complete his masterpiece - a process that draws players into an increasingly hallucinatory nightmare, with the game's beautifully realised gothic mansion setting warping and reconfiguring itself into ever-more-impossible arrangements, and delivering some deliciously disorientating, frequently unforgettable set-pieces in the process.
