Good-Feel’s next original title from Osaka

Good-Feel – the studio behind Kirby's Epic Yarn, Yoshi's Woolly World and Yoshi's Crafted World – is working on an all-new original game.

According to president Etsunobu Ebisu, the unnamed game is going to be an action game for Switch and is currently in development at Good-Feel's Osaka studio.

Wider appeal: It will have a Japanese flavor since that's the studio's native culture, but Ebisu is confident that “gamers outside of Japan will like it too”. Ebisu used to work at Konami on series like Goemon and Castlevania before founding Good-Feel in 2005.

Branching out: Good-Feel just published Monkey Barrels, a stylish top-down shooter starring a bunch of gun-toting monkeys.

Jinkies! It’s old man Alba

The wheels and styles of Cyberpunk 2077

The fourth episode of CD Projekt RED's video series Night City Wire takes a closer look at the vehicles in Cyberpunk 2077.

CD Projekt RED gives vehicles a unique feel and style of their own

The studio has worked hard to ensure a broad and authentic range of styles, and also recorded sounds from real vehicles to make sure the engines rumble and the brakes squeal just right when you go on a Grand Theft Auto-esque rampage through Night City.

Open road:The studio is also working with Arch Motorcycle, a high-end motorcycle manufacturer Keanu Reeves co-founded in 2011, so expect some futuristic two-wheeled rides as well.

Dress well: The second part of the episode looks at the fashion of Cyberpunk 2077, and takes a closer look at the four dominant fashion trends in Night City: kitsch, entropism, neomilitarism and neokitsch. Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled for launch on November 19th.

No more new content for StarCraft II

StarCraft II is ten years old this year, and Blizzard promises to keep supporting the game with balance fixes and ladder seasons.

StarCraft II released episodically with Wings of Liberty first July 2010

They won't be making any “additional for-purchase content” such as Commanders and War Chests, but they will maintain the game with “season rolls and necessary balance fixes moving forward”, and Blizzard recently launched a new balance update.

End of an era: “…some of our players have been looking forward to some of the things we’re moving away from, but the good news is this change will free us up to think about what’s next, not just with regard to StarCraft II, but for the StarCraft universe as a whole,” according to the blog post.

Sequel hopes: That does make it sound like Blizzard has a new StarCraft game in the works, or at least that the StarCraft team is shifting their focus towards developing a new entry in the series. Maybe they'll unveil something new and exciting once Diablo 4 is out?

What system was Bungie’s Marathon originally made for?

ANSWER: Mac OS!

You wouldn't expect a 90s shooter to have the line Escape will make me God

Macintosh computers have never been particularly gamer-friendly, but one of the most important first-person shooter series got started their. Before Bungie made Halo and Destiny, they developed the Marathon series exclusively for Mac.Bungie open-sourced the Marathon games before Microsoft bought them, so with the right emulator you can still play them.

The Marathon games were a lot more story-oriented than most 90s first-person shooters, and while you'll mostly be blasting aliens, you'll also spend a lot of time reading weird alien lore on terminals – and frowning at references to Darwin or The Song of Roland.
