How to watch the Resident Evil showcase for new Resident Evil 8 gameplay - Gamesradar
The Resident Evil showcase promises to be a big event
The Resident Evil showcase is taking place later today, January 20, and you can watch the entire thing right here. Firstly, the Resident Evil showcase will be kicking off at 2PM PT / 5PM ET / 10PM GMT. As for where you can watch it, you can see the full livestream ready to go from the official PlayStation YouTube channel just below, so you can stay on this page and click play on the video below at the corresponding time later today. As for what we're expecting from the Resident Evil showcase itself, there'll obviously be a big focus on Resident Evil 8. When the showcase was first announced last week, Capcom revealed that there'll be a guided tour around a certain section of the upcoming horror game, and the PlayStation Blog post reveals that producer Peter Fabiano himself will be acting as your guide. However, there's also going to be a "few more surprises" from Capcom surrounding the Resident Evil franchise, according to the aforementioned PlayStation Blog post. Right now, there's no telling what these announcements could be, but we're certainly in for a treat. Keep in mind that one of these "surprises" could be the reveal of the mysterious new Resident Evil multiplayer game. Last week, Capcom quietly announced that closed testing signups were live for a multiplayer game set within the Resident Evil universe, but no additional details were offered on the project. There's still time to sign up to take part in the closed testing phase for the unannounced game. There's two waves of signups of the game, and you can still put yourself forward to be eligible through the game's teaser website. Additionally, we could hear further details about the upcoming Resident Evil Netflix series. The subscription service first announced the show last year, but we've heard little about the project since it was first unveiled. The series is still slated to launch this year however, so now would be a perfect opportunity to reveal some new details. What's certain is that this is going to be a big event for Resident Evil. 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the series, since it was first created by Capcom all the way back in 1996. With a game, tv series, and other projects in the works this year, Resident Evil fans are in for a treat later today. For a full look at how the forthcoming year of gaming is shaking up, head over to our new games 2021 guide for a complete annual release schedule.
These snazzy gold and white PS5 controllers are only for PlayStation employees - Gamesradar
Not available in stores
Sony's making gold and white PS5 controllers, but the only way to get one is by being part of the team that launched the console. PlayStation product design manager Joey Rabbitt posted about the extremely luxe-looking controller in a public LinkedIn post . Rabbit was the lead designer on the new PS5 app, and was also given a special plaque and launch team apparel by Sony. The greatest prize, however, and the one that PlayStation fans are the most likely to start salivating over, is that PS5 Launch Team controller. From the one image of the controller Rabbitt shared, we can see it has a metallic gold-colored bottom plate. The plate's left handle proudly bears a "PS5 Launch Team" label. Aside from the gold-colored plate (I'm assuming it's not real gold) and its label, it appears to be a standard PS5 controller. Hopefully Rabbitt has already put in a few rounds of Call of Duty: Warzone on this thing. Even if you lose, with that thing in your hands you'd still feel like a winner. Sony still hasn't announced any plans to start selling alternative PS5 controller colors for anybody outside of the PlayStation organization. The distinct two-tone design of the controller makes the possibilities seem even more endless than they were for DualShock 4, but we'll have to wait and see what Sony has planned. For the time being, unofficial PS5 controller covers are popping up with a variety of color options - and a custom PS5 faceplate company is back for a third time after legal threats from Sony.

Doom Eternal costumes are making their way to Fall Guys - Gamesradar
You’ll be able to suit up from January 12
Doom Eternal skins are making their way to Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout as revealed in a new teaser trailer. The costumes will be available on January 12 and come in three different character variations including Doomguy, Cacodemon, and Tyrant. The trailer features a Fall Guys course inspired by Doom Eternal that is just a tiny bit cuter than the actual Doom setting. The Doom theme song also makes an appearance before the dramatic unveiling of the three new skins. The costumes were teased on the Fall Guys official Twitter account earlier this week in a since-deleted tweet that read: “We'll be revealing a costume that rhymes with schmoom schmayer from the hit game schmoom schmeternal.” Which of course ended up being the Doom Eternal crossover teased above. The account also tweeted that they planned to unveil the new characters via a stream on Tuesday, however we're unable to do so due to struggling to access the costume designs, as the Fall Guys Twitter account revealed on January 5. Well... this is awkward...We accidentally made this swole bean so unleakable that even WE are unable to leak it 😅Unfortunately, we'll have to reschedule the stream... 😂😭We've hacked the system though... here's a leaked render pic.twitter.com/M6iqlzHsCyJanuary 5, 2021 These are just a few of many Fall Guys costume crossovers with Mediatonic also releasing a Santa outfit , Godzilla suit , Untitled Goose Game crossover , and even a Sonic the Hedgehog skin last year. Fall Guys Season 3 premiered at the 2020 Game Awards and was released to play on December 15. The update gave players 7 new levels, 30+ new costumes, crown ranks, and more.

Expect "free" Cyberpunk 2077 DLC in "early 2021" - Gamesradar
CDPR updates the Cyberpunk 2077 website with a new page dedicated to DLC
Free DLC is coming to Cyberpunk 2077 in "early" 2021. A couple of weeks back, during an emergency meeting, CDPR president Adam Kiciski said that it was "too early to judge" what would happened to the game's DLC and multiplayer mode , but added that "it's ahead of us, so we don't know yet. We are now focused on improving Cyberpunk and will discuss it early next year". Before Cyberpunk 2077 launched, CD Projekt revealed that several DLC expansions and a multiplayer mode were in the works for the game. The developer has previously talked about the multiplayer mode not releasing before 2021 at the very earliest, and the reveal of the DLC expansions was delayed prior to Cyberpunk 2077's launch . Now, however, a new page has been added to the game's website and while it gives away very little about what might be in store for players, it does confirm that "free DLC starts hitting Night City early 2021" and asks players to "stay tuned for more info" (thanks, NME ). (Image credit: CDPR) As we summarised at the time , this all comes after Cyberpunk 2077's fairly disastrous launch on both PS4 and Xbox One. After reassuring players that the game ran "surprisingly well " on last-gen platforms, CD Projekt Red leadership apologized for the bug-riddled launch of the game on both platforms, after players encountered numerous bugs, glitches, and visual downgrades. CD Projekt Red leadership said the cost of fixing Cyberpunk 2077 on last-gen platforms was "irrelevant " compared to the hit their reputation has taken over the launch. Consequently, Sony pulled Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store "until further notice" and began offering refunds to anyone that bought Cyberpunk 2077 on the PlayStation Store and wanted their money back. Microsoft subsequently added a warning to its Xbox storefront, too. Last week, we reported that CD Projekt investors unhappy at the performance of Cyberpunk 2077 were contemplating legal action against the company and now, it seems a law firm in New York has gone ahead and filed a class-action lawsuit. At the time of our reporting last week, two prospective legal challenges came to light, one from Warsaw, Poland, and one from New York. Now a separate NY firm called Rosen Law has filed for damages on behalf of CD Projekt investors . We take a look back at the last console generation with GamesRadar's pick of the 100 best games of the generation .
Get a cheap 4K TV deal with these OLED and QLED sales - GamesRadar
Save big on LG and Samsung's flagship ranges
The cheap 4K TV deals are coming in very steadily this winter, and as part of the after Christmas sales, there's a whole bunch of the best gaming TVs on offer in the form of LG's OLED range and Samsung's QLED panels. Nice. Either one is arguably the best TV for PS5 and Xbox Series X without question. In a sea of acronyms, however, this can be hard to digest. As a brief overview, 'QLED' is Samsung's premier trademark LED technology which is backlit to provide a clearer and brighter picture than its competitors, thus offering a bright and more vivid experience that can leave others in the shade. On the other hand, OLED TVs from LG offer excellence at the other end of the scale in terms of grays, blacks, and darker shades or tones. Many of the options below also offer a 120Hz refresh rate, support for variable refresh rates, Nvidia G-Sync compatibility (on LG models), and Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG. Plus, the concrete fact of having HDMI 2.1 ports makes them very future proof for console gaming - and even PC gaming. Anyway, there are a vast array of TVs in these premium brackets discounted this Holiday Season, and to save you the hassle of rounding them all up we've collected a large handful or two here.

KFC launches 4K, 240FPS gaming console with a built-in chicken warmer - Gamesradar
Another very normal thing that happened in 2020
Watch out, PS5 and Xbox Series X, the KFC gaming console is real. It's called the KFConsole, it's essentially a VR-ready high-end gaming PC, and it comes with a built-in chicken warmer. Boom, checkmate! Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Back in June, just after the PS5 reveal, KFC released a ridiculous trailer for the KFConsole, but everyone just figured they were joking. Turns out, they were dead serious. KFC, the chicken place, has teamed up with Cooler Master and launched a gaming console capable of 4K and 240FPS. The joint press release doesn't mention a price or release date, but I've reached out for clarification and will update this article if I hear back. The console wars are 𝒐𝒗𝒆𝒓.Introducing the KFConsole. #PowerYourHunger pic.twitter.com/k7AM6g61IpDecember 22, 2020 "Moving forward from our initial teaser campaign earlier this year, we're so pleased to finally give the fans exactly what they wanted; making the KFConsole a reality," said KFC PR boss Mark Cheevers. "We all know the console war is vicious, but we're very confident in the KFConsole as our flagship entry. This machine is capable of running games at top-level specs, all on top of keeping your meal warm for you to enjoy during your gaming experience... what's not to like? If Sony or Microsoft want any tips on how to engineer a chicken chamber for their efforts next time, they'd be welcome to get in touch." The complete specs haven't been revealed, but we know it's got an Intel Nuc 9 CPU, Seagate BarraCuda 1TB SSD, and judging from the prominence of "ray tracing" in the marketing from Cooler Master, an Nvidia GPU. Cooler Master also says the KFConsole has "a first of its kind hot swappable GPU slot" for easy upgrades. But who really cares about all that when it's got a chamber to keep your fried chicken warm? It might be hard to get a KFConsole before Christmas, so check out our list of the best gifts for gamers for some last-minute alternatives.
Your Cyberpunk 2077 save may be corrupted if you pick up too many items - Gamesradar
"The save file size limit might be increased in one of the future patches, but the corrupted files will remain that way"
Cyberpunk 2077 saves become corrupted if they exceed 8MB in size. According to a thread on the Cyberpunk 2077 subreddit , save files need to stay below 8MB to keep them safe, but this is proving difficult for an RPG game that usually demands a lot of crafting and collectibles. The issue is also plaguing PC players, which have hitherto escaped many of the major issues affecting the console version. In a response via the GOG website - which is owned by developer CD Projekt Red's parent company - the studio has confirmed that once corrupted, there's no way to recover the save, so it recommends you keep "a lower amount of items and crafting materials". incredible. just incredible pic.twitter.com/rF4JCTOdPzDecember 19, 2020 "Unfortunately the save is damaged and can't be recovered. Please use an older save file to continue playing and try to keep a lower amount of items and crafting materials," the message said. "If you have used the item duplication glitch, please load a save file not affected by it." It further added that whilst the file save size "might be increased in one of the future patches", "the corrupted files will remain that way". As Hirun summarised yesterday , this all comes after Cyberpunk 2077's fairly disastrous launch on both PS4 and Xbox One. After reassuring players that the game ran "surprisingly well " on last-gen platforms, CD Projekt Red leadership apologized for the bug-riddled launch of the game on both platforms this past week, after players encountered numerous bugs, glitches, and visual downgrades.

Cyberpunk 2077 glitch trailer has flying cars, an entropic tree, and hordes of doppelgangers - Gamesradar
"Something feels off here..." "...You don't say?"
If you've heard Cyberpunk 2077 is a little glitchy but haven't played it yourself to find out for sure, this video is really the only thing you need to catch up. It's a round-up of the biggest Cyberpunk 2077 glitch highlights, and it's a blast to watch whether or not you're enjoying the game. Plus, you've got to hand it to Redditor Papar_RZ_2T for the pitch-perfect placement of the "Something feels off here..." "...You don't say?" exchange at the end. I complied these goofy gliches footages into a trailer. from r/cyberpunkgame Night City looks like a terrifying place to live. Imagine going for an afternoon stroll, looking up and seeing a whole ass car screaming toward you from the sky. Or hopping into your car in the morning just before it explodes - talk about a case of the Mondays. There's also a car riding a car, a motorcycle driving right through a car, and of course flying cars. Really, cars seem to just do their own thing in Night City. Still, I think the most unsettling glitch is the palm tree that goes from just casually palm treeing to totally wigging out and growing so fast that it consumes the entire field of view. And it doesn't just grow vertically like a normal palm tree, it expands in every direction and just takes over the world. That tree is nightmare fuel. Cyberpunk 2077's nightmare tree in its early stages of entropy (Image credit: CD Projekt Red) Some Cyberpunk 2077 glitches are hilarious, others are terrifying, and others still are actually quite helpful, like the one that gives you superhuman speed. Regardless, CD Projekt says it's hard at work patching out all the Cyberpunk 2077 glitches, assuring that any related costs are "irrelevant" compared to restoring its reputation, so enjoy them while you can. Cyberpunk 2077 PS5 and Xbox Series X ports will take advantage of all the "technical possibilities", according to CD Projekt Red
Cyberpunk 2077 has already turned a profit - Gamesradar
Lest we forget, Cyberpunk 2077 released yesterday
CD Projekt Red has revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 digital sales have already exceeded both the cost of development and marketing, just a day after launch. Specifically, CD Projekt says it was pre-order sales alone that turned a profit for Cyberpunk 2077 on day one. As flagged by industry figure Daniel Ahmad on Twitter, CD Projekt Red released its 65/2020 financial report today, which describes Cyberpunk 2077's commercial success in incredibly dry, businessy terms. I'll share the exact tidbit below, but essentially it says Cyberpunk 2077 has already made more money for CD Projekt than it took to develop and market. Again, apologies if this triggers any unwelcome flashbacks to early mornings spent sat around oblong tables listening to CEOs ramble about how profitable their companies are. "The Management Board of CD PROJEKT S.A. with a registered office in Warsaw (hereinafter referred to as 'the Company') hereby announces that the estimated licensing royalties receivable by the Company in association with pre-order sales of Cyberpunk 2077 across all of its digital distribution channels have exceeded the sum of the following:
- total development expenditures related to the game, and
- the games marketing and promotional costs borne by the Company – either already incurred or anticipated for the remainder of 2020."
Hayden Christensen to return as Darth Vader in Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series - Gamesradar
Darth Vader will appear in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series
Hayden Christensen is returning as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader for the first time in 15 years in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series. Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy announced the surprise news during the Star Wars portion of the Disney Investor Day. Christensen hasn't been part of the franchise (outside of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker voice cameos and being added after the fact as a Force ghost in the original trilogy) since Revenge of the Sith. Speaking of Episode 3, the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series is going to be set 10 years after Revenge of the Sith. A showdown between Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan and Christensen's Vader was also teased during the Investor stream. "We couldnt tell the story of Obi-Wan without Darth Vader" writer Deborah Chow said. "We will definitely see Obi-Wan and Darth Vader get into it again." That's going to be music to the ears of Star Wars fans who have wanted a rematch between the pair ever since Obi-Wan took the higher ground. It was such an incredible journey playing Anakin Skywalker, said Christensen (via StarWars.com). Of course, Anakin and Obi-Wan werent on the greatest of terms when we last saw them It will be interesting to see what an amazing director like Deborah Chow has in store for us all. Im excited to work with Ewan again. It feels good to be back. Obi-Wan Kenobi pre-production is also ramping up. The Scot recently revealed that he donned Obi-Wan's costume once more while on the set of The Mandalorian. Star Wars is bringing the good all across Disney Plus in the next few years. An Ahsoka Tako spin-off, Lando series, a New Republic TV show, and more are all coming to the streaming service.

Cyberpunk 2077 free DLC message hidden in the latest trailer - GamesRadar+
The free DLC will begin rolling out in early 2021
Buried in the latest Cyberpunk 2077 is a hidden message about the game's upcoming DLC and expansions. Below, you can see the image posted to Imgur, that someone managed to uncover from the most recent Cyberpunk 2077 trailer. "We've mentioned before that expansions will be coming," the hidden text in the background reads. "And while we're not ready to talk specifics just yet, we will say that we've learned a lot from our work on both Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine." (Image credit: CD Projekt) "Our planned expansions will take you even deeper into the world of Cyberpunk 2077 offering substantial, story-driven content that'll give you tough choices to make through impactful narratives that you won't soon forget," the text continues. "But before we get there, we'll first be kicking off our free DLC program in early 2021." We'll send you pre-order details and the best Xbox Series X deals as soon as they're available. Send me details about other relevant products from Gamesradar and other Future brands. Send me details about other relevant products from third parties. No spam, we promise. You can unsubscribe at any time and we'll never share your details without your permission. As for what this free DLC program will contain, it'll introduce a "bunch of cool stuff that'll inject even more life into the world of the dark future." The Witcher 3 received free DLC quests, outfits, and items post-launch, so it's likely that CD Projekt could be gearing up to release similar free content for Cyberpunk 2077. We've known for a while now that CD Projekt is planning DLC expansions for Cyberpunk 2077. While the expansions were meant to be revealed before the game releases, the developer announced that it had instead chosen to delay the reveal of the expansions until after launch. Cyberpunk 2077 finally launches worldwide tomorrow on December 10. It'll be available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, as well as PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S through backwards compatibility. To see what we made of our time with Night City, you can check out our full Cyberpunk 2077 review for more.
