Resident Evil is getting another CGI movie, set in the same continuity as the games, and this time it stars Jill Valentine, finally bringing her back into the mainline story. It begins with a prison full of infected before cutting to Leon Kennedy on a mission (as he is one to be) and Chris Redfield on holiday (for real this time, not Code Veronica style). Then we see what looks like Resident Evil 4's Del Lago before a final shot of Jill Valentine at a shooting range, getting some practice in. Just don't shoot the fish early, Jill. RELATED: Resident…

It's the Super Bowl this weekend and since that has nothing to do with video games, it might seem a little odd to be talking about it here. Well, the reason we're very briefly casting our video game gaze over the NFL finale is because EA Sports has insisted on using Madden to try and predict how the game will unfold, and if recent attempts at that have taught us anything, it's that the football game has probably got it wrong.

You can do this at the end of the game, but you still only have two endorsements, so you'll have to forfeit giving one of your allies credit to do this. This was a feature already present in the first Overwatch, and while fans are happy to see it finally return, it has also continued an ongoing discussion that has been swirling since Overwatch went offline, and replaced by 2 – what other cut…

Gambling streamer Sliker who was recently at the centre of a controversy due to scamming viewers and colleagues out of hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund his gambling addiction has been banned from Twitch.

Overwatch 2's third season kicked off this week, adding an all-new map to its Control mode. Some players fell over themselves when they discovered that map will have living, breathing penguins on it, and for those who don't care about the wellbeing of the game's new feathered friends, don't try killing them or it'll lose you Ultimate Points. That's right, if you decide to fire off a few rounds at a nearby penguin because you're a sick individual, or maybe you're just bored, you will be punished for it. Highlighted by knockknockow on TikTok, if you shoot a penguin on…

Concept art for a version of Resident Evil 7 that would have been more similar to Resident Evil 6 has surfaced online, giving us a glimpse of what the game would have been like before it turned into a first-person survival horror. Although most of us think of the Baker house when we hear the name "Resident Evil 7", the seventh entry in the series was almost a very different game. A few years ago, Resident Evil insider AestheticGamer revealed that the seventh game was originally intended to be closer to Resident Evil 6 and would have followed Leon and…
