The sense of place, in fact, is as convincing as something like the original Oddworld games all the way back on the original PlayStation, with similarly weighty, panicked gameplay to the point that we’d be prepared to call Little Nightmares something of a spiritual successor to the adventures of Abe.

Gearbox's Borderlands movie continues to hoover up an improbable roster of Hollywood talent, this time with the news that Jamie Lee Curtis has officially signed on to star in a key role. A film adaptation of Gearbox's popular post-apocalyptic comedy shooter was first floated all the way back in 2015, but it wasn't until last year that the cogs started turning in earnest - with the surprise announcement that Hostel director Eli Roth would be at the helm. More unexpected still was the news, arriving last May, that Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (who starred in Roth's 2018 adaptation of The House with a Clock in its Walls) would be taking a leading role in the Borderlands movie as Lilith, described as a "siren and legendary thief equipped with magical skills".

Nintendo is a notoriously litigious company, and has gone to extreme lengths to protect its copyright over the decades – from trying (and failing) to block sales of the Game Genie on the NES all the way up to its closure of ROM-sharing sites in more recent years. That's why when a post appeared on social networks which stated that Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser had personally flown out to Venezuela to sue a 9-year-old boy for creating a cardboard imitation of a Nintendo console, it raised a smile from many gaming fans – so much so that it was shared thousands of times across Twitter and Facebook.
