PUBG Corp responds to “asset flip” accusations
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2018, 9:36 am
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has been accused of being an asset flip because it uses pre-made objects that have been purchased from the Unreal marketplace. Knowing that a chair was sold on the Unreal marketplace and then put in the game shouldn’t have a tangible impact, positive or negative, on anyone murdering their way through the massive […]


Alliance Tournament
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2018, 10:07 am
KronosThis will be A Band Apart's 4th Alliance Tournament run. Our first year we were honestly not prepared and lost the first two matches to the G0dfathers and The Explicit Alliance. Being a first time Alliance in the tournament is rough. But it was a


How closing a Hooters will hurt indie games at E3
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2018, 9:30 am

The Devolver Digital parking lot has been the best part of E3 for half a decade, even though it's technically not associated with E3 at all.

A big white balloon marks the spot across the street from the Los Angeles Convention Center where a handful of bullet-like Airstream trailers huddle around tents offering free beer and hot sausages wrapped in tortillas.

A giant screen sits under the shade, pixels flashing as a group of people play the latest local multiplayer game under Devolver's publishing label. Some years, an arcade controller with neon dildos as joysticks sits on a low table in front of the screen, waiting for someone to load up Genital Jousting. High-profile indie developers float in and out of the parking lot, showing off their games in the trailers and indulging in the festivities.




OMDO turns DOOM into a Magic Eye puzzle
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2018, 7:03 am
I’m not sure about you lot, but I’m always worried that my eyes aren’t getting enough of a work out when I’m playing games. OMDO, then, might be exactly what I need to help me shed excess eye weight. It’s DOOM, but every frame is a autostereogram, hiding the screen inside a wall of dots. […]


The Beginnings 5 TF2 jumping competition has begun
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2018, 7:16 am
I love discovering subcultures that occasionally spawn from videogames, and trickjumping is a wonderful example. Give Quake players the ability to propel themselves through the air by firing rockets at their feet and a momentum-building jumping bug, and what do they do? They make custom maps and challenge each other to perform feats of aerial […]


What happens when a pro 'League of Legends' game crashes?
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2018, 8:03 am

Riot Games ran into an unexpected snag during the North American LCS (League of Legends Championship Series) yesterday. The MOBA crashed partway through a match between Clutch Gaming and Echo Fox, kicking all 10 players out of the session. After a lengthy pause, Riot ruled that Echo Fox had won the match, pushing the team to joint first in the summer split standings. The decision was made because Echo Fox had claimed seven towers (Clutch Gaming, meanwhile, had zero) and a substantial gold lead before the game crashed 32 minutes in. A Clutch Gaming comeback was unlikely, though fans of the organisation are still understandably pissed.

Tank football returns to World of Tanks for the World Cup
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2018, 6:09 am
The World Cup, I have been reliably informed, is very much going on at the moment, pitting nation against nation in a desperate battle to become Football King for the next four years. Normally, it’s a humans-only sporting event, with FIFA banning animals, household appliances and even tanks from participating. Wargaming has corrected the latter, […]


Steam Charts: What The Heck Is Happening Edition
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2018, 6:22 am
As you stare out into the world, at the tumult and turmoil, perhaps you feel the only hope is to turn to the Steam Charts for its comforting predictability and stability. I’m sorry folks, but it’s all gone batshit crazy in here too.


The Morning After: Finally, a yacht that docks itself
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2018, 6:30 am

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

Good morning! We're kicking off this week with a brief Tidal exclusive, big news from the World Cup and important information for all yacht owners. We know what our audience likes.




Xbox One preview brings FastStart loading to Game Pass
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 June 2018, 11:11 pm

If you like the thought of speeding up access to Xbox Game Pass titles with FastStart, you don't have to wait until the finished Xbox One update arrives later in June -- you can try it right now. Microsoft has rolled out FastStart to both its Xbox One Preview Beta members as well as some Delta Ring users. As the company outlined at E3, it uses machine learning to make titles playable roughly twice as quickly as before by downloading just those elements you actually need to get started.

Free games of the week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 June 2018, 7:00 am
Recover from the rampant commercialism of E3 with some free games! Below you’ll find a puzzle game about love and making the right connection, a wacky platformer where you are a hatched human looking to get to the castle, and an interactive poem explaining why one person cries. If those concepts don’t pique your interest, […]


Neo Cab’s E3 trailer shows off new game systems
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 June 2018, 11:17 am
What happens to the gig economy once capitalism destroys us all? Well, that’s what Neo Cab sets out to answer. You play as one of the last Uber drivers is a shiny dystopia where you’ve got to keep your feelings from exploding while you engage in a quest to save someone close to you. Managing […]


Former Telltale CEO Sues Telltale Games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 June 2018, 1:08 pm
Might not be the most exciting story today, but this feels like a bit we need to cover. Last month, Telltale delayed The Wolf Among Us 2 until 2019 due to vague “we’re making it better we promise” reasons. This comes at the end of a year or two of reports that life at Telltale […]


Blast-off in Space Invaders Extreme demo
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 June 2018, 2:32 pm
So. This isn’t a new game. In fact, it’s basically the oldest game. There’s nothing in modern games we would have without Space Invaders, including the excellent Adam Sandler films Pixels. You remember Pixels right? It made $244,000,000 in 2015, because in 2015 we were all very stupid and bad. Not me though. I have […]


World of Warcraft Classic is progressing/regressing nicely
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 June 2018, 4:15 pm
Blizzard has been working on launching World of Warcraft servers that just run a classic version of the game, back before all of the updates were added to the world… of Warcraft… over the years. It’s an ambitious choice because it’s not just about re-launching some early version of the game; it’s about perfecting and […]


SimBrexit game Not Tonight releases next month
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 June 2018, 5:55 pm
Political games are picking up traction, with Papers Please and Beholder being among my favorite indies from the last couple years. A new game published by Mike Rose’s No More Robots (Descenders, Hypnospace Outlaw) combines those influences with some bit-art and the current political hellscape into a Brexit simulator. I’m exceptionally excited for the impending […]


The Sunday Papers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 June 2018, 6:00 am
Sundays are for remembering that you’re an infinitesimal insignificance in a cosmos that doesn’t care, and dealing with the resulting angst by reading about videogames. On Kotaku, Kate Gray wrote about how a screaming eye-cube helped her learn about gender. Never before have I read something that’s made me laugh out loud by describing monsters […]


Final episode of Steve Gaynor’s Tone Control podcast released
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 June 2018, 12:15 pm
Way, way back at the beginning of Kickstarter, I threw some money at a new podcast called Idle Thumbs. I didn’t know this would lead to Steve Gaynor going on to become One Of Those Big Game Names, but it didn’t matter because it seemed like a really cool concept made by cool people. Idle […]


StarCraft updates on Korea League and Remastered
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 June 2018, 1:40 pm
I’m perhaps too far behind to catch up on StarCraft. I played back in the day but 15 years of competitive epsorts later, I rarely understand what I’m seeing when I watch the Big Match. (For what it is worth, I’m suddenly finding Rainbow Six: Siege to be the most watchable esport competition. Lemme know […]


Hello Neighbor gets asymmetrical multiplayer sequel Secret Neighbor
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 June 2018, 4:16 pm
Hello Neighbor was one of my favorite games of 2017, mostly because it tortured its audience with bizarre visual lore and then wrecked beta players and reviewers alike with its surprise use of act structure to include three different games in one. I also got to chat with the devs about how you make such […]


Strange Brigade dev playthrough shows off spooky puzzles
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 June 2018, 5:03 pm
There were perhaps too many games at E3 2018 for any one person to have caught them all. That’s why we’re still trying to cover videos and reveals a week later. I accidentally typed “a year later” because that’s how it feels. I’m fine; we’re all fine here. One of the sleeper hits of the […]


Team Sonic Racing breaks the sound barrier in trailer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 June 2018, 5:56 pm
Mr. Sonic the Small Blue Animal Guy With Good Rings is back into the racing circuit. It’s certainly one of the lesser beloved game franchises, and I can’t help but think that’s because it would be ridiculous for a character whose super-power is being super-fast to trade that power for driving cars that are equally […]


A Venture to HED-GP

Ranger Gama was back again with another frigate race for Reavers.  You may (but most likely do not) recall the race I wrote about back in December that had us racing Daredevils about the north.  That was enough fun that Ranger has made it a

Quote of the Day – Satire is Dead
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 June 2018, 8:46 pm
Always predict the worst and you’ll be hailed as a prophet. -Tom Lehrer, quoting a friend I don’t have an agenda when it comes to Steam.  I tend to take it as it is in my own fatalistic way.  But sometimes this stuff writes itself.
