First look at all-boss fighter ‘Furi’

by Phil Wheat

French indie studio The Game Bakers have pulled back the curtain on all-boss fighter Furi, their upcoming combat game slated for release on PlayStation 4 and PC in 2016.

When games suffer long delays the worry tends to set in.  The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was arguably one of the biggest releases for the so-called next generation of gaming, but with the release date constantly changing the question seemed to change from how good it would be, to what would we finally get in […]
