Horizon Forbidden West’s Alpha Leaks 10 Months After Launch

Horizon Forbidden West is almost a year old, and really drives home how quickly time flies. It’s because of the game’s age that the alpha leak is a bit of a surprise, as a file called “TestGame” was uploaded to a popular PlayStation hacking platform containing the build. How it got there is currently a mystery, but now that people have their hands on a debug-enabled version of Horizon Forbidden West’s engine, the game can be pulled apart for potentially cut content or deprecated features.

The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom Limited Edition OLED Switch Apparently Leaked

An image of what appears to be a Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom themed Nintendo Switch OLED made the rounds on Reddit earlier today, revealing a dock with golden markings along with matching Joy-Cons. Nothing has been confirmed by Nintendo yet, but the image certainly looks like the real deal.

Elden Ring was the most completed and retired game of 2022

Elden Ring has dominated year-end charts in 2022, so it’s probably no surprise to discover that the game was the most completed game of the year on HowLongToBeat. However, another interesting statistic revealed by the site shows that the game was also the most “retired” game in 2022, meaning that the game’s steep difficulty curve convinced quite a few people to put the game down and never come back.

Geralt actor Doug Cockle says Witcher Netflix writers deviated “severely” from the source material

Finally, the voice actor behind Geralt of Rivia, Doug Cockle, has spoken about the drama surrounding Henry Cavill’s departure. Cockle appears to be in the camp that Cavill left behind creative differences rather than his desire to return to the role of Superman, claiming that the show’s tendency to “deviate quite severely from the books and games” was likely the reason for his departure. Cockle also states that he does not envy the position that newly hired Geralt actor Liam Hemsworth is in.
