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.

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.

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.
