Robocraft to bury loot boxes and return to the tech-trees
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 6:05 pm
It would seem that the merest mention of premium loot crates is enough to raise hackles these days, least considering the recent slew of games either having completely excised them (Battlefront 2) or are in the process of doing so (Middle Earth: Shadow of War). The next game to step up is Freejam’s free-to-play build […]

The 'Wallace and Grommit' studio is creating an emotional WWI game
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 4:47 pm

Games set in real-world conflicts don't necessarily glorify war, but it's rare that they fully address the horrors of war. For every poignant story like Valiant Hearts, there's many more titles that might only offer token commentary. Wallace & Grommit's Aardman Animation Studios, Bandai Namco and DigixArt want to change that. They've unveiled 11-11: Memories Retold, a narrative adventure about two World War I soldiers who meet under the "most unlikely of circumstances."

Pro gaming team signs 13-year-old ‘Fortnite’ player
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 5:08 pm

Among the four members making up pro gaming organization Team Secret's new European Fortnite squad, one stood out: 13-year-old Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson. Almost immediately after the team was introduced today, news outlets jumped on Jackson's youth. Even if he may not hold the record (some say the then-12-year-old Jun "TY" Tae Yang was picked up to play StarCraft in 2006, noted Cybersport.com), the Fortnite ace is one of the youngest ever signed to pro team.

Flotilla 2 will be exclusively for the space-goggles crowd
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 2:48 pm
As much love as I have for the likes of Gravity Bone and Quadrilateral Cowboy, of Blendo Games’ output thusfar, my favourite has to be Flotilla. It was a quietly satisfying little game about tactical space combat, physics, and gratifyingly hard-hitting missiles, all wrapped up in a sharp low-fi aesthetic and spiced with Rastafarian space-cats. […]

A tactical pearl lies beneath BattleTech’s sea of treacle
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 4:00 pm
In my BattleTech review yesterday, I focused on the ways in which Harebrained Schemes’ long-awaited boardgame adaptation sadly wasn’t the big ‘bots at war experience I’d hoped for, but I want to go into more detail about why, as I put it, “I don’t think that redemption is impossible.” The tactical core of BattleTech’s fights […]

The Boys are Blocky Now: FFXV skin pack for Minecraft
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 4:27 pm
Minecraft is a strange phenomenon in gaming. Like a towering skyscraper, the mind stops recognizing it as a place for humans to inhabit, and it just becomes part of the landscape. Every now and then, something recognizable pokes out of a window and you’re forced to re-assess your outlook on the world. In this case, […]

Escalating Battle Sizes in Fade
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 5:15 pm
Asher always warns us to not talk to much about our deployments while they are in progress.  Talking about them… especially on Reddit… brings attention to the fact that there are decent, small scale fights happening somewhere in null

Open-world survival affair/one-eyed trouser-snake simulator Conan Exiles has spent over a year in early access, initially hitting it big thanks to a combination of brutal low-fantasy setting and a whole lot of hullabaloo about winkies. Its full release is almost upon us – 14 months is a pretty brisk turnaround as these things go, especially […]

Samsung 970 Evo review: The best NVMe SSD around
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 1:00 pm
The Samsung 960 Evo and 960 Pro NVMe SSDs feel like they’ve been around for an absolute age, but when I heard they were getting replaced earlier in the week by a new 970 series as of May 7, it still came as something of a surprise. These new NVMe models are also split into […]

Dare to dream of a 1999 internet in Hypnospace Outlaw
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 1:02 pm
It’s sometimes hard to believe that the internet of the late 90’s wasn’t some sort of bizarre techno-dream. Floating GIFs, embedded MIDIs and mouse cursors that transformed from site to site. Hypnospace Outlaw (from Dropsy developer Jay Tholen) is a game about exploring a fictional internet the likes of which we just about remember, keeping the […]

Infra getting DLC & tenement management spin-off
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 1:06 pm
First-person explore-o-puzzler Infra has been one of my favourite gaming surprises of recent years, sending me tromping around the dams, sewers, and bridges of a European city as a structural analyst investigating infrastructure damage. Who could have guessed I’d be so happy wandering along a river snapping photos of crumbling concrete? Now Loiste Interactive want […]

How EVE Online is embracing the solo player with Into The Abyss expansion
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 2:00 pm
The first mistake I made when I sat down to speak with Andie ‘CCP Seagull’ Nordgren, the executive producer of EVE Online, was referring to the changes in the upcoming ‘Into the Abyss’ expansion as “single player”. “There is no single player in EVE. There is no single player in EVE,” Nordgren corrected me. “You […]

Loot crates are now illegal in Belgium
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 2:05 pm

Officials in Belgium have determined that loot boxes violate the country's gambling laws and if publishers don't remove them from their games, they face jail time and fines. Specifically, FIFA 18, Overwatch and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive were found to be in violation. While Star Wars Battlefront II was also part of the Belgian government's investigation, EA's removal of the game's loot boxes kept it from bumping up against the country's legislation. In a statement, Minister of Justice Koen Geens said that if loot boxes in the aforementioned games aren't removed, their publishers could be subject to up to five years in prison and a fine of up to €800,000 (approximately $974,926). If children are involved, those punishments could be doubled.

King’s Quest IV: A love letter from my 3-year-old heart
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 12:00 pm
Like your first love, or your first hangover, you never really forget your first video game. You know the one. The game you were first obsessed by. The game you gushed about to extremely bored friends cornered in the soft play area. For me, one of my earliest memories is playing Sierra’s 1988 pixelated wonderland, […]

Sonic Mania Plus rolls out in July
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 11:00 am
Last year’s Sonic Mania was a return to the hedgehog’s days of plain ol’ side-scrolling platforming. It was a celebration of nostalgia, though, made by a small team with roots in the fan game scene. So ah, sure, go on, wham in some weird obscure playable characters. With no terrible cutscenes, I’ll be able to […]

Spring Movie League – Who is Laughing Meow?
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 12:15 pm
Week eight of our Spring Fantasy Movie League saw a surprise that was no surprise at all I guess. Well, it was no surprise if you believed my post from last week where I was declaring for Super Troopers 2.  The lineup for the week looked like this: A

‘Hypnospace Outlaw’ is GeoCities moderator, the game
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 11:00 am

If you used the internet in the mid-to-late 90s, you probably remember GeoCities. Bright, garish webpages full of animated glitter and barely readable text. It was a different time, before Facebook, Twitter and anything resembling an ephemeral 'story.'

Soccer Battle Royale is obviously the future of the genre
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 9:03 am
Right, battle royale games have peaked. Devs: you can stop updating Fortnite and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. Cancel your Mavericks and your rumoured Call of Duty modes. There’s no real point now, because the browser-based Soccer Battle Royale has stolen the genre’s crown for good. It’s a free, simple take on the formula where you’ve got to […]

Halo Online mod ElDewrito is in trouble with Microsoft
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 9:25 am
The future of ElDewrito, a Halo Online mod expanding and improving that cancelled spin-off into what Dominic Tarason called “the best PvP Halo experience you can find on PC today”, looks grim after Microsoft’s lawyers got involved. The problem, the Halo overlords say, is that ElDewrito violates Microsoft’s rights by using Halo Online content. The […]

'Tacoma' brings space-sleuthing to PS4 on May 8th
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2018, 8:32 am

Last August, Gone Home developer Fullbright released Tacoma on Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux. It was an ambitious adventure game set on an empty space station in 2088; you played as a sort of space detective with access to immersive 3D recordings and personal files on crew-member computers. Now, Fullbright has announced that it's bringing the game to PlayStation 4 on May 8th. The experience will be identical save for a new "Developer Commentary Mode" that includes two hours of writer, designer, artist and programmer insight. If you're interested, the title is available for pre-order now with 20 percent off the usual asking price.
