The Battle Royale genre, which sees 100 players dropped into a giant free-for-all until there’s a last man standing, has taken the gaming world by storm over the last year or so with the massive popularity of games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale. These two titans have been battling back and forth for months, with Fortnite more recently surpassing PUBG thanks to its free-to-play model and availability on pretty much every device capable of playing video games. But even with these two games dominating Twitch streams and the like, it still feels like we’re currently in the calm before the storm, so to speak, as the success of these games is still too recent for other publishers and developers to have had time to produce their own take on this emerging genre.

If you’ve been eagerly anticipating the rebirth of the Commodore 64, we have some good news. Pre-orders for the C64 Mini (a remake of the classic 8-bit microcomputer) are now available through GameStop, although you’ll be coughing up Euros instead of US dollars since it only ships to Ireland and the UK — for now.

For lovers of retrogaming, it’s essentially a wormhole to a nostalgic era where Zak McKraken, Ultima and California Games ruled the roost.

Rare’s Sea of Thieves released last week to a highly anticipated group of gamers who have been itching to hop back into the Seas since the first couple of Beta tests last month.

If you didn’t know, Far Cry 4 had a secret ending, essentially allowing you to complete the game in 20 minutes. All you had to do was not leave Pagan Min’s table at the beginning of the game, and just stay there to finish your meal. Now it seems that a similar conclusion can be met in Far Cry 5 – Eurogamer has confirmed that it is possible to finish the game in as little as 10 minutes. All that you have to do is not follow the button prompts at the start of the game – allowing you to basically fast forward through all the cult killing with an alternate ending.
