Hi guys!

It’s a dreich bank holiday Monday in the UK so we thought we’d HEAT THINGS UP A BIT FOR YOU!!

Here’s our list of the TOP THREE HOTTEST VIDEOGAME CHARACTERS:

NUMBER THREE:

The Fury from Metal Gear Solid 3. He had all those exposed flames around him and look how many layers he had on. He must’ve been absolutely cooking.

Flamelurker from Demon’s Souls. There are dark forces at work obviously, he’s made mostly of fire and he looks hot but he's weak to magic so he can't be that hot.

AND AT NUMBER ONE

Magman from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is made of pure magma. Magma can be as hot as 2120°F - 1160°C. So Magman is the clear winner.

PlayStation 5ive Announcement Shakedown

Imagine our shock here at Consolevania Towers when the bold Mark Cerny unleashed all sorts of info about PlayStation 5 in an interview with WIRED. We were like that - “What? It’s a Tuesday!”

So here’s what we know. PlayStation 5 will:

  • Need to be plugged into a telly.

  • Have new hardware in it, instead of just all the same bits.

  • Have an eight-core Ryzen or something in its graphics thing.

  • Have a GPU based on an AMD, or an AMD based on a GPU, that means it can trace rays.

  • Be able to attach to that 8K telly you don’t own.

  • Possess 3d sound, instead of just the normal flat sound that falls into your ears vertically.

  • Come fitted with an SSD (Some Sorta Drive) instead of a hard drive, so that your boring open-world game can load in all its mindless collectables more easily.

  • Be able to still do a PSVR into it, so that you can do the PSVR thing where your eyes are another being’s eyes in a nightmarish hellscape.

  • Come out in the shops in the future, where you might not even be alive.

  • Be 500 quid, probably.

  • At least.

FRIDAY NIGHT CONSOLEVANIA: BEHIND THE SCENES - TWO BOSSES

You've wondered exactly how the magic happens... For the first time ever, we go behind the scenes, uncut, as a classic Two Bosses skit is constructed. Consolevania's most popular comedy conceptions, laid bare in the rawest part of their brilliant creation.

"Improvisation, yes. Scripting, yes. Stuntwork, yes. But there is a special magic, a kind of alchemy, in the relationship between these performers and their characters and their audience." - Brian Blessed, on Consolevania

FEATURE: On Cheating; or Every Fucking Game Is On Easy Nowadays

Hi, it’s Rab Florence here. I’m 41 years old and I’ve never cheated at a computer game in my life.

Or maybe I have. I can’t remember. But I don’t think I have. And I come from the past, that place where 95% of all computer games were hard as fuck and made you feel like punching a hole in your bedroom wall. And your bedroom was in a council-built house, so the walls were like paper. And your mammy would be raging.

FLASHBACK: Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition - Nintendo 3DS

When Puzzle & Dragons released on the Nintendo 3DS, it landed attached to a Super Mario Bros-themed edition of the game. Two games for the price of one! But I’m just focusing on the main Puzzle & Dragons Z game here, because I think it’s an underrated wee thing, and you can probably pick it up right now for about a tenner.
