Gamescom is in a week and apparently the games are in a barrel that does not sour, but can be punctured on all sides. More about Rainbow Six Siege and Monster Hunter: World in this W8!

Good morning! It is August 14, the day on which your Wacht’s father’s birthday is (congratulations!) And when, in 1642, Abel Tasman left on his expedition to the mysterious South Land. He discovered Tasmania and New Zealand, not bad either! Enough history, we’re storming our way through the game news.

Leak at Rainbow Six Siege: New Defender

Stress at Capcom for Monster Hunter: World

You don’t want to be a Capcom today. The company has heard from various quarters that there are network problems with the new Monster Hunter: World. However, it does seem to be a bit heavier than that: the game would be difficult to play due to the hopelessness of the servers. Capcom is still investigating, so hopefully we’ll hear soon what’s going to happen to make this all better.

Gameplayreveal Twin Mirror expected on August 21

Necrobarista has a nice trailer!

You are now a bit older than when you started reading this N8W8, and you can also see those clocks ticking in the trailer of Necrobarista.

Necrobarista will be released on PlayStation 4, PC and Switch in early 2019. Your Guard is intrigued.

First look at Mulan

Mulan, the tough woman who pretended to be a man to get her way, already starred in a great Disney movie.

Niki Caro directs it and Yifei Liu plays the lead role of Mulan. Below you can see the first picture of it.
