Damn, someone leaked upcoming chapter videos for Dead By Daylight, as well as their roadmap for year 8 which would be announced in their stream next week. I feel bad for BHVR

Edit: There's also a spin-off game being developed by Supermassive. Details are still very vague.
It’s a shame especially since nothing from the Forged In Fog and Tools Of Torment chapters leaked in advance. The new killer looks really interesting though.

Rumours suggest it’s going to be called Mortal Kombat 1 and set much earlier in the timeline. That said, there has to be some sort of time jump. There’s no way they’re cutting Johnny, Sonya etc.

At least they learned their lesson from making mother Mileena DLC last time around.

I was going to say I hope we see more characters from the 3D/PS2-era like Tanya, Nitara, Li Mei, etc. but now that they’re rebooting everything once again I guess I shouldn’t get my hopes up.

If Tanya and Li Mei aren’t launch roster in a game set in the past, I’ve given up all hope.
 
I don’t really understand the need to reboot a fighting series? Is the story particularly convoluted as to need such a thing? Surely this could just be another installment.

Although my knowledge of Mortal Kombat is exceedingly limited nn.

Basically they keep killing everyone in each iteration of the game, then backtracking because they're running out of ways to include dead people in their games.
 
Mortal Kombat specialises in huge story campaigns per game. It’s pretty much their USP at this point so they have a story canon that dictates who they can bring back.

Honestly they fucked up trying to be cute by subverting expectations with MK9. Sindel massacring everyone was admittedly cunt but it made literally 3/4 of the main cast zombies for the next game.

Dead By Daylight anniversary stream confirmed what a lot of people already knew because of the leaks.

Next chapter is called End Transmission, new survivor Gabriel and new killer The Singularity.

Slipknot and Iron Maiden outfit collab is coming (so random)

Next chapter after End Transmission is licensed, most likely Five Nights At Freddy’s to tie in with the movie release. Hopefully it is just to shut everyone up about Springtrap coming to the game.

Hopefully the new things give the game a boost a bit, it’s been a bit stale since The Skull Merchant flop came out.
 
I realise I have been prattling on about Marvel's Avengers a lot and might be the only person still playing it, but I am really loving the DLC campaigns. Kate Bishop's story was a cool continuation of the story and I am having loads of fun with Clint's one too. Also loving how they both operate and how much easier their ranged attacks feel compared to other characters. Not done the Wakanda one yet. I'm just sad there isn't a proper story for Jane Foster or Bucky.
 
Anyone play the SF6 beta? I think it's really fun and I Love the new modern control scheme.
Jamie is a blast. I can't seem to find the lab though, I could only do solo training/lab while waiting for someone else to play with and that's admittedly not fun when you get interrupted from practice/learning just to get your ass beat immediately lmao (I only won like two sets, and i'm admittedly not good at SF, I haven't seriously played one since Third Strike.)

Been playing this weekend as Kimberly! Enjoying it but Kimberly's not going to be my main so I haven't been as eager to grind it all weekend to learn the tech. Played around 60ish matches? For what it's worth, it's also an old build of the game from last November, the demo that released last month is more of a current one (but only has Ryu and Luke). Some of the input delay and throw animations feel very jank in comparison.

For the beta, the lab is ONLY available when you're queuing up solo at a machine, and anyone can interrupt it (so you have to go to a non-crossplay lounge that's empty to increase your chances of not being found).
