Game designer Goichi "Suda51" Suda, of No More Heroes and Killer7 fame, is stepping back into the ring to write a DLC story for Fire Pro Wrestling World, developer Spike Chunsoft has announced.Suda51 cut his teeth on the long-running wrestling series, and directed Super Fire Pro Wrestling 3 Final Bout in 1993. He wrote a famously dark story for Super Fire Pro Wrestling Special a year later, and it sounds like whatever he has planned for Fire Pro Wrestling World—which came to Steam in 2017—will be similarly disturbing. We don't have a release date yet, but it'll no doubt be a good reason to boot up the game again. We reckon it's one of the best sports games on PC and, as Matt said when he played the Early Access version, it puts every WWE game to shame in a number of important ways.If you're interested in the series, you should read Ramona's excellent feature on how its loyal community gave it a second win. … [Read more...] about Suda51 is writing a DLC story for Fire Pro Wrestling World
THE PCG Q&AFind all previous editions of the PCG Q&A here. Some highlights:Who would you have cast as Geralt?What is the least bad videogame movie?What game did you quit because it was too grindy?It's tempting to start looking ahead to 2020 now that we know it'll have Vampire: The Masquerade—Bloodlines 2 in it, and possibly Cyberpunk 2077 as well. Maybe. But there are still over nine months of 2019 to go, so let's not get ahead of ourselves.This year still has heavy hitters like Doom Eternal, Dying Light 2, Control, and Total War: Three Kingdoms to look forward to, as well as long-awaited PC ports like Journey and the Master Chief Collection. Indie games like Hollow Knight: Silksong, Untitled Goose Game, and Witchbrook have the potential to shake things up, and I only just remembered while writing this sentence that Wasteland 3 is coming too. And that's just scratching the surface. What unreleased game of 2019 are you most looking forward to?Samuel Roberts: Star Wars … [Read more...] about What unreleased game of 2019 are you most looking forward to?

Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice's outstanding combat is clearly a hit with players: as of writing, more than 120,000 people are playing it, and its daily peak is more than 125,000, making it the fourth most-played game on Steam today ahead of Rainbox Six Siege. It's a monumental launch: bigger, even, than Devil May Cry 5, which was itself Capcom's second biggest PC launch ever, topping out at around 85,000 concurrent players, according to Steam Charts.Sekiro won't be climbing higher up the Steam ladder: in third place is CS:GO, which has more than 600,000 players at a time. But it's yet more evidence, as if we needed it, that excellent singleplayer games can still pull in huge audiences. You can read Tom's review in progress here: the highlight is the timing-based combat, which to me feels more rewarding than in any of the Dark Souls games. … [Read more...] about Sekiro reaches 125,000 concurrent players, fourth most-played on Steam

But behind the scenes, the dev team have been improving stability too, and the latest patch should fix the majority of crashes players were experiencing on PC.Thanks to a patch on Tuesday, the game now creates a .txt file in your My Documents folder when it crashes, and that information has helped inform a stability patch released yesterday. Players have been submitting their .txt files to the dev team, who have also been scouring forums for any other evidence."The good news is [the files] have been giving us great info and revealed a few crash locations, and we discovered that many of these are related. One of the issues appeared to be caused by one part of the program changing memory used by another part. These bugs are the most difficult to find," the team said in a Reddit post. "We had never seen the crash in any of our internal testing before, but now we could … [Read more...] about Apex Legends should crash less after the latest patch
