Mafia: Definitive Edition has been postponed
Hangar 13, who are porting Mafia: Definitive Edition, were supposed to showcase the game's gameplay back on June 15, but they rescheduled the show without any comment. This was the first call that something went wrong, and here's a confirmation - the release of the game was postponed to September 25. So that our disappointment was not so great, a new date for the gameplay show was announced - July 22.
In his official statement on the shift of the release, the developer said that the main reason for the transfer of the game is the coronavirus, which does not slow down the spread of the spread and all the ensuing consequences. In this regard, they made a compromise decision to take another month of development so that the problems did not affect the quality of the game.

Another Merged Assassin's Creed Valhalla Gameplay
By some accident [well, yes, by accident, of course] Ubisoft again lost the gameplay excerpt from Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which shows the battle of the female version of Eyvor with the boss.
The battle is quite long and the heroine is confronted by a certain Cordelia. This time around, the combat and movement animations look smoother and less arcade. Perhaps the past gameplay was recorded much earlier, or so it seems to us. In addition to the battle itself, you could look at the world map and the leveling tree.
Players started complaining about the in-game facial animations, comparing them to Andromeda. The gameplay has now been removed.
What kind of game it really is - we will find out at the Ubisoft event, which will be held on July 12 at 22:00 Moscow time. The game itself will be released this winter on all current platforms, as well as on a new generation of consoles.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise shared critics - either absolute masterpiece or outright rubbish
When Deadly Premonition came out, it got mixed reactions. She was criticized a lot, but she still has the status of a cult game today. It seems that the creators of Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise decided to repeat the success of the original due to a mixed reaction, since at the moment the opinions of game critics about it radically differ.
The only thing that the gaming media agree on is the technical execution of Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is simply awful. Apparently, in many ways, this is what influenced the estimates. Below you can see examples of all ratings for the game.
Of the good things in the game, there is a great surreal plot, an atmospheric setting from the first game and a charismatic protagonist. In contrast, reviewers call the game world empty and lifeless, filled with additional tasks that do not reveal it in any way, plus the game has low difficulty, monotonous gameplay and shootouts. They also add technical problems like FPS sagging, tons of bugs, crooked controls and long downloads.
In the end, it all boils down to the fact that some call it a worthy successor to the first part in terms of setting and atmosphere, while others are sure that this is an ordinary and very buggy game.
The game is out now on Nintendo Switch and is planned for more platforms.
