Atari shows off joystick and controller for its retro VCS console
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 2:38 pm

When the Atari VCS team decided to remake the retro console, it knew the controllers would be just as important as the box itself. After all, there's no gaming accessory quite as iconic as the Atari CX40 joystick. Earlier this spring, we got a glimpse of what the VCS will look like, and now, the company has revealed more details about the Atari VCS Classic Joystick and Modern Controller. Both are a carefully crafted mix of essential features, both old and new, the company said in a blog post.

Ritual Of The Moon diary: day 19
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 1:00 pm
Ritual Of The Moon takes around five minutes a day to play, for 28 days. Today is day 19 of my diary. Look, I’m very busy again today. I’m back from being on holiday and nothing is finished, and I have to stay late tonight for unrelated reasons anyway. I don’t understand those people who […]

Bus Simulator 18 rolling along new roads in map expansion
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 1:02 pm
While Bus Simulator 18 hasn’t captured my heart in the same way as American Truck Simulator, I’m fond enough of it to return to the nonspecific European city of Seaside Valley for its first expansion. Released today, it expands the map with new areas: a picturesque mountain village along winding roads in the countryside, the […]

The rise of Advance Wars-alikes on PC continues later this year with Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble. Sequel to Area 35’s original Tiny Metal (released in late 2017), it looks like more of the same – chunky polygon graphics wrapped around a familiar light strategy formula and an overbearingly anime storyline. This time round, they’re […]

Of all the chat clients and apps and sites I use across my professional and personal lives, Steam is the only one that hasn’t lived on my pocket telephone because, well, the Steam mobile app is pretty bleh.

Dota 2's hugely popular custom game mode Dota Auto Chess is set to get not one but two standalone spin-offs.

Amazon made social mini-games to make warehouse work less bland
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 10:43 am

Amazon has turned to video games to make warehouse work a bit less tedious while boosting worker productivity in the process, according to The Washington Post. The e-commerce giant has "gamified" warehouse workers' tasks by reflecting their progress in a video game format displayed on small screens at their stations. If they need to pick up a particular item to put into a bin, for instance, the object could light up on the screen, depending on what the game is. The approach is merely an experiment at the moment, but it has already rolled out to five warehouses in the US and the UK.

'Vader Immortal' is the Star Wars VR game I've been waiting for
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 11:00 am

Star Wars and virtual reality always seemed like the perfect mix. Long before the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive were released a few years ago, I was eager to slip on a VR headset, hop in a rusty smuggler ship and wield a light saber of my own. While we've seen a few stabs at Star Wars VR experiences, they've either been too simplistic, or hard to access. But just as I was about to give up hope, along comes a guy a guy cloaked in black, carrying a red light saber. It turns out, Darth Vader was my Star Wars VR savior.

Valve making Dota Auto Chess mod into standalone game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 9:09 am
Dota Auto Chess, the most popular mod in Dota 2 these days (and which has nothing to do with chess), is becoming a standalone game made by Valve themselves. I had not predicted that this would be Valve’s next game. Valve say they talked with mod creators Drodo Studio about working together and, while dreams […]

'Observation' is a gripping space puzzler with an AI hero
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 8:01 am

Many video games are set in space. Most cast you as a human super-soldier or plucky science-type trying to untangle a truly terrible situation. Not Observation. The latest game from No Code, the Scottish studio behind Stories Untold, makes you play as a piece of artificial intelligence instead. It's a fascinating choice that changes how you move around the spaceship, solve basic puzzles and interact with the game's protagonist, a medical officer called Emma Fisher. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to live inside a computer, or hack your way through a modern spacecraft, this is the game for you.

'Beat Saber' VR finally gets a full release on PC
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 8:40 am

When Beat Saber became available for the Oculus Quest on Day 1, it also left early access and entered stable release. For some of you, that might not mean anything at all: Its creator, Beat Games, says it's just a formality and that it released the full version for the PlayStation VR months ago with all the features it wanted in the first place. The full release makes the game identical across platforms, though, unifying all the versions for Steam, the Oculus Store and the PS VR. In fact, version 1.0 has just rolled out for the Steam platform.
