Death Stranding on PC has been delayed due to the coronavirus

Death Stranding PC delay

Hopefully, it is the first and the last delay

There wasn’t a single week in which we weren’t hit with a delay caused by the coronavirus. The latest victim is highly anticipated by many gamers on the PC platform – Death Stranding. The Hideo Kojima’s latest was supposed to release on the PC sometime during June but is being pushed back by a month and a half. To be more precise, the new date is 14th of July so it’s not a huge wait. But, there’s always danger that the game will further be delayed depending on how Japan combats the coronavirus outbreak.

But can it run Crysis Remastered?

Crysis Remastered incoming

Disclaimer: It won’t fry your hardware this time around

Many people call Crysis a glorified tech demo but I thoroughly enjoyed it. When it comes to first-person shooters, it’s the biggest hodge-podge of summer blockbuster movies. The game just has it all: a North Korean threat, mysterious aliens, government and military conspiracies, and even superpowers that make you feel like the Predator. What’s great is that we’ll soon get to experience it all over again with new and improved visuals across all current-gen consoles and the PC. For more details on what exactly you’ll be getting in the remaster and when check out our original news coverage.

More Spider-Man leaks hit the web

Spider-Man 2 Leaks

Seems plausible but we remain cautiously optimistic

Just last week we reported on a fairly substantial rumor about the next Spider-Man game. While unconfirmed, a pattern is starting to emerge that seems to connect all the leaks into a coherent whole. While it could be a crafty ruse, it seems like an official announcement is going to be made at the tail end of summer so we won’t have to wait long to find out. Anyhow, the leak covers all the segments of the game so we have mentions of Harry Osborne and the symbiote, Daredevil and the Human Torch, Miles Morales being playable, and much more. For the full content of the latest leak, check out our original coverage.

Call of Duty: Warzone has some creative anti-cheat measures

Warzone cheaters

Let them fight!

Cheating in multiplayer games is just about the worst thing you can do. Call of Duty Warzone players and Activision also seem to think so because they are cracking down on the cheaters pretty hard. While the players themselves are reporting and tracking down cheaters and cheat software creators, Activision is implementing a nifty system that will pit cheaters against each other. That way the cheaters can be stuck in limbo trying to kill each other or simply quit because constant winning with insane killstreaks isn’t possible anymore. Along with that, Activision implemented some quality of life changes to its cheat reporting system which you can check out in our original news coverage.

GameStop set to open some stores despite the pandemic

GameStop coronavirus

Physical gaming stores is the last thing the world needs now

The wildfire spread of the coronavirus has, for the most part, been contained with numbers of new cases reducing by the day. This is in large part thanks to the large-scale quarantine and social distancing measures many countries implemented as the virus spread among their citizens. One of those measures was closing down any non-essential stores where people could congregate en masse and come into contact with each other. Well, once again, we have GameStop pushing the boundaries of good taste by reopening stores in numerous countries even though the danger isn’t over yet. As a reminder, they ignored the initial lockdown orders and kept their stores open claiming they were essential. I certainly didn’t know they started selling food over there.
