I See A Red Gate And I Want To Paint It Black Red

Kick off your week with this glorious recreation of the Japanese shrine Fushimi Inari Taisha in Unreal Engine. Blissful:

Happy Days

Days Gone slung the most copies on PlayStation Store in April. Not bad for a game that takes a fair while to win you over. Grand Theft Auto V and World War Z trailed behind in its wake, with Mortal Kombat 11 making a splash, too.

Don't Talk To Me Or My Son Of Rome Ever Again

A peek at the original version of Ryse: Son of Rome has been slapped online. Codename Kingdoms, as it was then called, was originally intended to be an Xbox 360 first-person melee, and a slice of it is now featured on the Prototype Preservation YouTube channel, for your viewing pleasure.

Have a look at what could have been (and once was) below:

Monster Punter

On the off chance that you haven't yet had a crack at Capcom's Monster Hunter World, you can play the opening section for free on PS4 until 20th May. You can just carry on with the progress you've made so far in the trial version if you choose to continue on with it, too.

Tears On My Billow

Uprising Studios dropped a new look at Scarf over the weekend. The in-development indie has flavours of Journey, which is no bad thing. This looks good as hell tbh:

Shatter Star

Thea 2: The Shattering will be live on Steam from today. The much-loved fantasy sequel to Thea: The Awakening from MuHa Games is a turn-based 4X strategy with RPG and card mechanics. Well worth your time if you're keen to be back in the warm embrace of some Slavic mythology influences while seeking out your fortune as a vengeful rat (and who isn't?):

Rage On

Bethesda's Rage 2 post-launch plans are here already. Have a look at all the extra content ahead by clicking this thing right here.
