Monster Hunter Rise review - the Switch's best game since Breath of the Wild
I've just drifted my dog into battle, his hindlegs tilting out in a glorious arc at the press of a button for that precious extra boost of speed, before dismounting with the flick of a wirebug that sends a silken line up into the sky, allowing me to grapple onto it and swing towards my prey.

The Last of Us TV show will at times "deviate greatly" from the game, according to Neil Druckmann
HBO's adaptation of Naughty Dog's The Last of Us will at times "deviate greatly" from the game, according to executive producer and game creator, Neil Druckmann. In an interview with IGN, Druckmann confirmed that while some of the dialogue will be lifted directly from the first game, it was more important to secure "the philosophical underpinnings of the story" than worry about details such as "should [a character] wear the same plaid shirt or the same red shirt". "That's way less important to us than getting the core of who these people are and the core of their journey," he said. Read more

Review: Phogs! - Utterly Cute And Charming Co-Op Fun
Where poodle meets noodle. What do you get if you take one part Push Me Pull You, one part Noby Noby Boy, one part CatDog and a weirdly large helping of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons? Depending on which parts you take, you'll either end up with a tale of fraternal love and body horror, or you'll end up with Phogs: a game in which you play, simultaneously, as both halves of a two-headed dogsnake. It's not as horrific as it sounds.

Raise rapidly mutating dogs in ex-Sims 4 dev's gloriously weird pet sim Wobbledogs
What is a dog but a wobble with infinite potential? That's the question Wobbledogs - a wonderfully odd pet sim of rapidly mutating portions - is possibly pondering as it prepares to wobble its weird pet sim self into Steam early access next year. Wobbledogs is the work of Tom Astle, a former gameplay engineer on The Sims 4, and lets players loose in a world of physically simulated - but crucially, and slightly terrifyingly - rapidly mutating dogs.

Sam & Max's VR adventure This Time It's Virtual shows off new gameplay footage
It's an unexpectedly eventful week for us Sam & Max fans; not only has Telltale Games' Sam & Max Save the World been revealed to be getting an unexpected - but wholly welcome - remaster, there's new footage of the wise-cracking anthropomorphic crime-fighting duo's previously announced VR adventure This Time It's Virtual to enjoy. Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual will mark the Freelance Police's first brand-new video game outing since Telltale's third season of Sam & Max adventures, The Devil's Playhouse, in 2010. "After decades of rescuing bigfoots, playing games of high-stakes poker against B-List celebrities, and preserving reality from cosmic nogoodniks," explains developer HappyGiant of its new VR adventure, "the world-renowned dog and rabbity thing are on a recruitment drive to fatten up the ranks of the Freelance Police...and they've come to you for help!".

Telltale's first Sam & Max season is getting a thorough remastering in December
Sam & Max Save the World, Telltale Games's episodic point-and-click adaptation of Steve Purcell's anarchic comic series, is getting the remaster treatment, and will be making its way to Switch and PC on 2nd December. First released back in 2006, Sam & Max Save the World marked the dubious crime-fighting duo's first video game outing in over a decade, following on from LucasArts' point-and-click masterpiece Sam & Max Hit the Road. Save the World six-episode arc didn't quite live up to the lofty standards of its predecessor, but it's a typically spirited - and consistently hilarious - affair, one that sees the dog and bunny Freelance Police tackling a case that starts with former child stars running amok before taking increasingly bizarre turns.

Gorgeous Blade Runner-esque delivery thriller Cloudpunk gets first-person cockpit view
Gorgeous Blade Runner-esque delivery thriller Cloudpunk gets first-person cockpit view
Developer Ion Lands' glorious Blade Runner-esque delivery thriller Cloudpunk is already an absolute joy to meander around, thanks to its gorgeously designed open-world playground - a vast rain-slicked sci-fi metropolis shrouded in endless night - but, from today, PC players can admire its neon-streaked, voxel-based splendour while staring out the window of their flying HOVA cars, thanks to a new first-person cockpit update. Cloudpunk, if you've not yet had the pleasure, casts players as protagonist Rania as she attempts to survive her first 24 hours in the perpetually sodden city of Nivalis, completing jobs - primarily by zipping back and forth through the night sky, ferrying packages and passengers around the place - at the behest of illicit delivery company Cloudpunk. Before long Rania and Cloudpunk's immensely likeable cast of characters - including her loyal AI companion dog Camus - finds themselves embroiled in suitably intriguing mystery, and while the ensuing adventure might be a little slight (there's not much to do in the city outside of the main plot), careening nippily around that breathtaking cityscape is a constant delight.
