Yooka-Laylee is seen as a spiritual successor to Nintendo 64 hit Banjo-Kazooie, but the upcoming 3D platformer may also borrow from another classic Rare title. IGN went hands on with Yooka-Laylee for about an hour, and in their experience, its level of adult humor is actually closer to Conker's Bad Fur Day. Their brief playthrough included jokes about prejudices, reproduction, premature ejaculation, urinating, and more.

That said, from their descriptions, it sounds like the humor is more subtle than the controversial Conker's, and they made no mention of curse words being used. It sounds like Yooka-Laylee should still be a game that kids can play, but there are plenty of jokes meant for older audiences. You can check out the video by clicking below!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided finally released today, and it seems to be doing pretty well so far. If you happen to be one of the many players enjoying the newly released title, then you might be interested in the season pass associated with the game. As it so happens, Eidos and Square Enix released information detailing what is included in the DLC collection earlier this week alongside the general release date for unreleased packs. Two DLC Missions and a slew of upgrade items are just a few of the items that are up for grabs.

Sony fans have been enjoying the benefits of PlayStation Now for over a year, paying a fee to allow them to download and play a number of excellent games from past systems on Sony's hardware, but it looks like it won't be restricted to PlayStation hardware for much longer. A new announcement posted to the PlayStation Blog today reveals that the company is bringing the Now service, which holds a library of over 400 games and is constantly growing, to Windows PC. Alongside this announcement, they have also officially unveiled a USB wireless adapter for DualShock 4 controllers, which we first saw signs of a month ago.

It's already possible to setup DualShock 4 controllers on a PC (Screencheat is a prime example, supporting 4 controllers with no extra software), but it seems that an official solution may be on its way. A USB Adapter was recently listed on Amazon France for around $20 or €17.62. The only details provided were a possible September 15th release date and the fact that the wireless adapter was indeed from Sony for the PlayStation 4 platform. It's speculated that this device could allow easy linking to a PC without additional software or add extra Bluetooth devices to the PlayStation 4.

Of course, nothing is confirmed, but you can check out the listing here.

The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise has spawned more than its fair share of internet memes over the years (hell, that's basically all their official Twitter account does), and one of the most famous is slapping "& Knuckles" onto the end of game titles, à la Sonic & Knuckles. This humorous reference has found its way into Deus Ex: Mankind Divided as a rather hilarious Easter Egg, but the full story actually goes back over a year. Hit the jump for more!

Blizzard Entertainment recently announced that they'd be releasing a new map for Overwatch, their incredibly popular team-based shooter. Eichenwald, a map consisting of a German castle and village, is now available to try out on the Public Test Realm. The map's medieval aesthetic reminds some of Dark Souls, so it's fitting that Blizzard has included a nod to the popular and punishing game franchise. A room within the castle contains a sword that has been thrust into a flaming mound, which is an obvious reference to the bonfires of Dark Souls. You can check out footage of the new map and the Easter Egg by clicking below!

The NPD Group has released its full report for the past month, highlighting hardware and software sales data in the US during July. With few major titles releasing during July, the software charts were dominated by evergreen titles. Grand Theft Auto V, which made its debut in 2013, was the number one game in the US for the month, and Monster Hunter Generations was the only July release to crack the top ten. The immensely popular Overwatch is listed at number two, but the NPD Group does not have access to Battle.net sales, so it could potentially be the true champion.

Last year, fans who were looking forward to Silent Hills were saddened to learn that Konami subsequently cancelled the game, as part of an ongoing dispute with Hideo Kojima. Following the cancellation, an indie studio picked up the pieces and started working on their own Horror game inspired by it, called Allison Road. The developers initially went to Kickstarter for funding, then later cancelled the crowdfunding campaign and signed with publisher Team17, but after months of no updates, they announced that Allison Road had been cancelled.

Yet hope has been renewed, as, in a recent statement to IGN, Allison Road creator Christian Kesler announced that he is reviving that game under a new label called Far From Home. Read more after the jump!

A few weeks ago, Crystal Dynamics announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be getting some new DLC later this year, including a new story-based pack set within the mysterious Croft Manor. Lara's family home will be free to explore and investigate in the "Blood Ties" pack, though there will also be plenty of dangers lurking in the shadows for the Tomb Raider to face off against. Included in this pack is an alternate mode, "Lara's Nightmare," in which Lara must defend the manor from zombie hordes. A new trailer was released this morning to show off both of these modes, so make the jump to check it out!

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is getting an open beta, as announced by the game's publisher, Bandai Namco. Details for the beta have not been disclosed yet, however, we do know that the new hub area, Conton City, will be explorable. The city is seven times larger than the hub of the previous installment and is where players will attain quests and different items.

Minecraft, the sandbox world-building game that hardly needs an introduction, is now available on the Oculus Rift. This version has been improved over the VR version created for the Samsung Gear VR, featuring a lot of cool new tidbits. For example, new turning features allow for a less-disorienting experience by only turning at increments. A "virtual living room" was also added, which lets you play the regular version of Minecraft from a virtual Minecraft living room, allowing the player to take a break from the intensity of VR while contemplating how meta the feature is.

The current version is available as a part of the Minecraft: Windows 10 Beta, which is free on Windows 10. Make the jump for more info and to watch the reveal video!

South Park has always been known for pushing the boundaries, and they're looking to do the same with their new game, The Fractured But Whole. This past week, the team at Ubisoft unveiled a new peripheral dubbed the "Nosulus Rift," which fills your nose with fart smells whenever your in-game character passes gas. Its name is an obvious reference to the Oculus Rift, and the team at Oculus VR isn't taking that as an insult—in fact, Oculus head of studios Jason Rubin calls it "a moment of absolute pride."
