Curious snippets from Gabe Newell’s Reddit AMA
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 5:53 am
Having waded through the Gabe Newell AMA from that Reddit place I’ve heard so much about I thought I’d pick out some of the more interesting bits for me. As a whole the AMA (which is a type of Q&A – AMA stands for Ask Me Anything – if you’re not fluent in Reddit) wasn’t […]


Necromunda coming to PC as “turn-based tactical RPG”
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 6:15 am
Of all the Games Workshop licenses, Necromunda is the one I’ve been hoping to see on PC. A turn-based tactical game of gang warfare in the fantastically rotten goth-tech underbelly of the 40k universe, it was my favourite tabletop game back in the day. Now that every other corner of the two Warhammer settings has […]


Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 ‘open beta’ coming February
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 7:24 am
An open beta test of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] will launch next month, ahead of the first-person face-shooter’s launch in April. “An off-brand Far Cry with a dash of Battlefield” is what RPS spotter Edwin Evans-Thirlwell called GW3 after playing a preview version last year, which sounds like it might be a lark. […]


A Game of Thrones season 7 return could prove (again) that dead doesn't mean dead
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 5:23 am
As we all know by now, death isn’t exactly a permanent fate on Game of Thrones but, even then, there are some characters you expect to shuffle off their mortal coil and never, ever return


Ben Affleck, it turns out, has learned a lot from his long and fruitful movie career – especially when it comes to being the butt of all jokes


It was bound to happen. We knew there was going to be differences between The Legend of Zelda: Breat ...


Blobber Sign
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 7:16 am
Like any hunter, I can read sign. The broken twigs, ruffled leaves, change in the breeze, the small subtle tells that broadcast where prey may be located or when... MALLER!! BAIT!!Exactly. So yesterday I was out hunting in Mr. Biggles, my Fed Navy Comet


The Morning After: Wednesday, January 18 2017
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 6:00 am

It's Wednesday morning and Raspberry Pi has made a super-powered PC-on-a-stick, the state of AAA cloud gaming and a look at the Army's prototype hoverbike. Grab your coffee. We'll wait.




XCOM 2: Long War 2 turning Geoscape to battlefield
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 5:21 am
XCOM 2: Long War 2, the officially-sanctioned sequel to the venerated XCOM mod, will expand the ‘Geoscape’ global strategy layer in new and awful ways. Long War 2’s initial announcement this month was a little light on details, leaving us guessing at how it’d give XCOM 2 that complex and gruelling Long War flavour, but […]


Emotional sci-fi game 'Alone with You' hits Steam next month
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 11:11 pm

Alone with You tells a surprising story about relationships, love and friendship -- surprising because it stars just one living human as he attempts to escape an abandoned planet that's scheduled for implosion. His only companion is the space colony's artificial intelligence system and holographs of dead colonists. Through interaction with the AI system and nightly conversations with digital ghosts, the survivor discovers details about the people who used to inhabit the planet and how their lives collided.

And now, it's all coming to Steam.




Star Trek Online opens new crafting line in Season 12
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 8:00 pm
There may be a Reckoning coming to Star Trek Online later this month, but it doesn't mean that captains have to start quaking in their chairs. Crafters will be treated to a whole new school of development with Season 12: Kits and Modules Research. As the title implies, this R&D school allows hobbyist captains the ability to whip up all [...]

ARK modders fight over Pokémon projects
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 9:00 pm
Gotta catch 'em all... unless we're talking about Pokémon mods for ARK: Survival Evolved, in which case there might only be one in the end. So yes, a player team created a mod called Pokemon Evolved that replaced ARK's dinos for Pokémon, which weirdly fits ARK's tame, ride, and fight format. The only problem is that there was already a [...]

What's on TV: 'Hunted,' 'Teachers,' 'Voltron'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 8:11 pm

This week the NFL rolls out its conference championship games, but if you're not a sports fan there's still plenty to look forward to. On Sunday night, CBS kicks off its The Running Man-ish (book, not movie) reality TV show Hunted, while Netflix is ready to release the second season of Voltron: Legendary Defender. Teachers is also returning on TV Land, Baskets is back on FX and The Flame in the Flood has launched on PS4. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).




Closers Online shuts down in Japan, moves over to Taiwan
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 6:00 pm
As of today, Closers Online is, um, closed in Japan. SEGA has shut down the game's servers and is handing all operations of the title over to Taiwan's HappyTuk, which is starting the MMO back up on its own hardware. Fortunately for those affected, Japanese players can migrate their accounts and progress to the new servers and continue to play using [...]

The Stream Team: Lots more SMITE-ing with Loki
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 6:55 pm
Massively OP's MJ had so much fun playing Loki that she's diving right back into SMITE for another round. This time, she might even venture out of the AI arena and into PvP! She also has it on good authority that the SMITE skins fairy might just make a guest appearance to give away a skin or two. Tune in [...]

'The Flame in the Flood' arrives today on PlayStation 4
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 6:47 pm

When it was released last year, The Flame in the Flood garnered a lot of attention for its big name developers and unique take on the wilderness survival genre. Today, PlayStation 4 players who have been missing out the experience will finally get to take a trip up the game's fictionalized Mississippi river and through a dystopic version of the American South.

Bunny brawler Overgrowth adds Lugaru’s campaign
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 3:46 pm
The kung fu rabbits of Overgrowth [official site] have been around in a playable form since I was a small and ancient protozoa, so I won’t accept the game’s sudden switch from “alpha” to “beta” as news. But I will take notice when told that the story campaign of its predecessor, Lugaru, has been adapted […]


How historical games integrate or ignore slavery
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 4:00 pm
Video games always come with an expectation that the player will suspend disbelief to some extent. Genetically engineered super-soldier clones don’t exist, radiation has never and will never work like that, and overweight Italian plumbers could never make that jump. In most cases, if we are unwilling or unable to suspend our disbelief, we may […]


Little Nightmares gets a release date and a creepy af trailer
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 4:31 pm
Little Nightmares from Tarsier Studios (makers of LittleBigPlanet on PS Vita) has been on our *ahem* radar for some time now, impressing us with its Tim Burton-esque visuals


I think we all had a feeling of shock and surprise when the trailer for Super Mario Odyssey showed the cartoon plumber entering the real world-- well, if you count "New Donk City" as the real world anyway

Wild Terra works on an 'anti-grind system'
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 5:00 pm
Eyeing a potential source of discord and disparity in Wild Terra, the devs said that they are taking steps to "reduce the gap" in the progress between players who dump a lot of time into the game and those that can't. As such, the team is prepping an anti-grind system that basically reduces experience needed to progress. Characters will build [...]

Atlas Reactor goes free-to-play, adds new character
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 2:00 pm
“If Frozen Synapse and Battlerite had a baby, it would bear an uncanny resemblance to Atlas Reactor,” said Matt Cox, which reminds me that I’m grossly failing in my duties as his self-appointed moral guardian. I should have given that young lad the ‘copulation’ talk years ago. But if you’re interested in tactical team combat […]


The Repopulation is about to get repopulated
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 2:30 pm
Have I ever told you about The Repopulation? *you shake your head, gently, afraid*  The Repopulation [official site] was a science fiction MMO that always smiled. Back in the halcyon days of 2013 it was even considered handsome, rugged, intriguing. It appealed to all those searching for a new Star Wars Galaxies, along with offering […]
