Streets Of Rogue Exits Early Access For Full Release This July

Streets of Rogue is both a roguelite and immersive sim that takes inspiration from games like Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, but mixes with RPG elements. It's been in Steam Early Access for over two years, but now it's finally heading towards full release on PC and consoles next month.

Set in a procedurally generated city, you play as a member of the Resistance and complete missions to progress. Different characters come with unique traits and abilities. For example, cops can arrest people and gorillas can throw a good punch. The release version will have a couple of additions like new achievements and mutators.

You can watch a teaser below.

Rumor: A New Ape Escape Could Be In The Works

If a suspicious tweet is to be believed, we may be seeing an Ape Escape comeback in the near future.

A Twitter account by the name of @piposaru20th recently tweeted Ape Escape artwork that shows one of the famous apes peeking from behind a tree.

While we normally wouldn't pay much mind to an unverified, random Twitter account, this one is a little different, since Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan's official Twitter follows them. This is intriguing, since SIE Japan follows only a little over 140 other accounts.

It's also worth noting that it looks like a Twitter account set up for Ape Escape's 20th anniversary (the first game came out in 1999), considering some of the tweet's wording and that it sports an official-looking logo on its profile.

Considering this is a rumor and about an unverified account, however,..

U.S. Government Bans League Of Legends In Iran And Syria

League of Legends is currently banned in both Iran and Syria. This is due to growing tensions between the U.S. and Iran (Syria is a key ally of Iran, which is why it's affected too).

When attempting to log in, players in Iran and Syria are met with this message: “Due to U.S. laws and regulations, players in your country cannot access League of Legends at this time. Such restrictions are subject to change by the U.S. government, so if and when that happens, we will look forward to having you back on the rift.”

Trump recently imposed trade sanctions on Iran, detailing that businesses from that country cannot currently trade with the United States. League of Legends, like most free games, has microtransactions which falls into the trade category. Therefore, it has to abide by these restrictions.

Unsurprisingly, Iranian and Syrian players are finding ways around the ban, such as using a VPN, but it is proving tricky for some since VPNs in those areas can be expensive.

Square Enix President Talks Innovation And The Impact Of Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV had a tall order of pleasing old fans, while also reaching a new audience. The entry was a departure from what we'd previously seen, tackling a more open world and taking combat in a more action-oriented direction. Before the game was released, director Hajime Tabata said it was “make or break for the franchise” and acknowledged it was a dying IP that lacked brand recognition in our 2016 cover story. At this past E3, Square Enix CEO and president Yosuke Matsuda was on hand for interviews and we asked him if he felt Final Fantasy XV had raised the profile of the series.

“Yes, I think it did do that because we tried lots of different things with [Final Fantasy XV],” he said. “Among the titles in that series, I think it was quite unique. And I also understand that not just the fans from back in the day, but also lots of new, young players also played it. In that sense, I think it really had a significant contribution in that context.”

Matsuda also took this time t..
