Company of Heroes 3 evolves what the series has always done best

In 2006, Company of Heroes was released during the golden age of real-time strategy games. It was a period marked by robust multiplayer offerings and big-budget campaigns, beginning — although there is some dispute — with Age of Empires in 1997, and culminating with the release of Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty in 2010.

15 PS4 Games That Received The Best PS5 Upgrades

The PS5 is still just a little over a year old, so obviously, we’re not even close to the point where we begin seeing exclusives that take full advantage of the hardware. But while we wait for that, developers have been taking the opportunity to go back to older games from the PS4 generation and bring them to the more powerful new console, or to release cross-gen titles whose PS5 versions might not be leaps and bounds above their PS4 counterparts but do still offer meaningful improvements. Whether its free upgrades, those cross-gen titles, or paid remasters and re-releases, there’s been a few games that have done that quite well, and here, we’re going to talk about some of them.

Rumour: Chrono Trigger Sequel Chrono Cross Might Be Getting A Remaster

Remasters are all the rage at the moment, so a recent rumour which claims that Square's Chrono Cross is getting the same treatment should come as no great shock. Originally released on the PlayStation in 1999 (Japan) and 2000 (North America), Chrono Cross takes place in the same universe as Chrono Trigger, the classic SNES JRPG. The game was developed by many of the same people who made the 16-bit outing, including Masato Kato, Yasuyuki Honne and Yasunori Mitsuda.

GTA: The Trilogy: Rockstar Reefs, Classics Return

Remaster Fatigue: The Ballad of GTA Definitive Edition's Failures

If there's one thing that the gaming industry is good at, it's promising that the next big game is always just around the corner. Every single time, developers swear that their next game will be bigger, it will have more fish AI, look 16 times better, and so on. Whether or not the games actually live up to such promises is another issue, but it gives the impression that the gaming industry is in a constant state of progress, especially to the common layman. If you were to explain the habit of remastering really old games to that same layman however, it must seem like a ridiculous contradiction. After all, remastered games are basically decades-old games that are being sold again to a modern audience, albeit with a fresh new coat of paint.
