Ninja Theory says no more content updates for online brawler Bleeding Edge

It's been just under a year since Hellblade developer Ninja Theory released its team-based multiplayer effort Bleeding Edge, but already the studio is calling time on development, announcing there'll no more content updates as of today.Released last March on Xbox One and PC, Bleeding Edge was pitched as raucous blend of third-person melee action and class-based 4v4 multiplayer, and it successfully laid a solid, if rather bare-bones, foundation at launch. As Eurogamer's Wesley Yin-Poole put it in his review, "The combat is just about good enough to get away with it for now, but without some meaningful updates I'll probably…

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 dropping onto PC in March

Thankfully, they won't be left out too much longer, as Sega has finally announced a 23rd March release date for the puzzle adventure sequel on Steam.As you might imagine, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is very much a continuation of the winning formula last seen in 2017's Puyo Puyo Tetris, meaning plentiful block-dropping and blob-matching action spread across a variety of solo and multiplayer modes.Adventure mode returns for more ridiculous story driven shenanigans, for instance,…
