A Way Out creator Josef Fares is very confident in his upcoming game It Takes Two ; so much so that he'll apparently offer $1000 to anyone who gets bored and quits before the ending. It Takes Two is a zany co-op platformer launching on PS5, Xbox Series X, PC, and last-gen consoles on March 26. Given that Fares once said it'll "blow your fucking mind away" in an official video from publisher EA , it might not surprise you that the director is once again assuring fans that It Takes Two won't disappoint. This time around though, the famously self-assured Fares is looking directly at people who tend not to finish games. Talking to Game Informer , Fares says he was saddened to hear that only 51% of players finished his previous game, a Way Out, and says he plans on bumping that number up to 100% with It Takes Two. "I know people came up to me and said, 'Wow it's fantastic that 51 percent of players in A Way Out finished the game,' and they told me that that's an … [Read more...] about A Way Out creator Josef Fares says he’ll give you $1000 if you get bored of It Takes Two

I'm delighted to announce that Felisha Dela Cruz has joined the team as a comments moderator. Felisha is part of our parent company RELX's marketing department that is based in Manila, the capital of the Philippines, and is moderating comments on Eurogamer as well as our sister sites Rock, Paper Shotgun, VG247 and Dicebreaker. So, a little bit about Felisha. I asked her about her interests and here's what she had to say: "I'm a plant mom, but I'm just taking care of succulents cos they don't need to be watered that often. "I like K-Pop, and have been a long-time fan of SHINee for almost 12 years now. I also like listening to indie, lo-fi, and ballad music. "When it comes to video games, I'm obsessed with simulation games - The Sims, Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, Planet Coaster, Truck Simulator, Cooking Simulator. I enjoy watching a lot of playthrough videos since I get to play vicariously from other people. I can't for the love of me get past a single boss level." … [Read more...] about Say hello to Eurogamer’s new comments moderator!
The Doors are breaking on through to the comics side with the new OGN Morrison Hotel . Writer Leah Moore and a host of artists including Michael Avon Oeming, Colleen Doran, and more are taking part, with nearly a dozen individual stories - like songs on the namesake 1971 album the OGN's title derives from. But this graphic novel isn't a blow-by-blow biography - instead its a musing on the Doors' influence, inspiration, and thinking as displayed in their music, their concerts, and the four men's lives. Moore and the others involved in Morrison Hotel are helped along the way with Robby Krieger and John Densmore, the two surviving members of the Doors. With Morrison Hotel going on sale this Wednesday, Newsarama spoke with Moore about the comic, the band behind it, and stepping in to document a band who were already legends before she (or I) were born. Newsarama: Leah, what's your personal connection to the Doors - before the idea of this comic came up? Leah Moore: … [Read more...] about The Doors graphic novel will leave your “head spinning in the best possible way” if Leah Moore has her say
Creature in the Well, a kick-ass bullet-hell action game from developer Flight School Studio, was a game about lightning. It was a fittingly electrifying experience that played to its central element both mechanically and aesthetically. Stonefly, the studio's next game, is about wind. It's more easy-going and freeform, and the wind itself is the main weapon on your tiny flying mech which you pilot through gargantuan forests filled with massive bugs. And after one look, Stonefly has quickly become one of my most anticipated games of the year. Stonefly stars Annika Stonefly, a young machinist working with the former mech pilots in the Acorn Corps to reclaim a lost mech and reconnect with her father. The details of the story are kept deliberately vague in my preview session, but Flight School Studio says family legacy is a central theme. You can also build relationships – though not necessarily romantic ones – with individual Acorn Corps members whenever you return to camp. That … [Read more...] about Have you tried… playing reverse Pikmin but with a mech in the magical Stonefly?
Diablo 2 is almost old enough to drink in the United States, so as someone who missed it the first time around – on account of being *checks notes* seven – I was a bit worried that Diablo 2: Resurrected would bother or bore me to no end. I got into the series with a few hundred hours of Diablo 3, and between that and the quality of life standards that modern games have drilled into me, I had high hopes for the remastered graphics but low expectations for the actual game. This left me with one question going into the recent technical alpha for Diablo 2: Resurrected: without any help from nostalgia, is the game genuinely fun in 2021? Yeah, actually. No rose-tinted glasses here In my experience, a remaster like this can get by without nostalgia as long as it still feels distinct from the games that followed it, and Diablo 2 is wildly different from Diablo 3. I don't want to spend too much time preaching to the choir here, but I do want to share my reaction to playing Diablo 2 for … [Read more...] about Diablo 2: Resurrected is fun to play even if you’ve never tried the original
