Square Enix announce mech game Left Alive
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 5:24 am
You can learn a lot about someone from their response to a Christmas disaster. When tragedy struck snowy New York in Tom Clancy’s The Division, Ubisoft activated sleeper agents to shoot bad men. A trite and telling reaction. When Mr. Bean got his head stuck in the Christmas turkey, he wrapped a towel round it […]


GOG’s new sale is kind of a Big Deal
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 6:31 am
Despite having hosted a range of discounts each and every week of the year so far, GOG clearly feels like it’s never enough. As of yesterday, the site launched the Big Deal Sale, offering over 200 titles with discounts of up to 90%. Besides the on-the-nose title of the sale itself, there are a number […]


Sony’s traditional pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference is normally enough to pique the interest of hardcore PS4 fans and casual gamers alike, and this year is no different

Capcom just released a holy trifecta of announcements for Monster Hunter World, including a release date


US Navy will use Xbox controllers to steer submarine periscopes
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 5:22 am

The Pentagon might have to buy Xbox controllers en masse in the future if the military ends up using them to control its laser weapons and other equipment. In fact, the US Navy will begin stocking its modernized Virginia-class submarines with them, starting with the USS Colorado that's expected to be commissioned in November. Sailors aboard the high-tech submarine will use the Xbox controller to maneuver its periscope. See, unlike periscopes in movies, wherein a single person has to peer through an eyepiece, the high-tech version of the instrument uses high-resolution cameras and displays images on big screens.

The Morning After: Tuesday, September 19th 2017

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

We have some bad news from Toys 'R' Us, CCleaner and Equifax, but at least Galaxy S8 owners can disable the Bixby button, and Jerry Seinfeld's latest stand-up is available on Netflix.




Niantic's next AR game after ‘Pokémon Go’ may use audio cues
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 3:24 am

Niantic is keen to prove that it's no one-trick pony. The company that brought augmented reality mobile gaming to the masses with Pokémon Go is dropping some interesting tidbits about its followup. The title will integrate audio prompts into its AR gameplay experience, the company's CTO Phil Keslin told TechCrunch. Instead of asking people to hold their phone up while interacting with the game, Keslin says the developer is seeking a more natural alternative. And, it seems audio cues could be the key to the Pokémon Go successor.

'Neko Atsume' is coming to PlayStation VR in 2018
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 3:58 am

Neko Atsume was the smartphone hit where you collected and fed cats. That was... mostly it. It also took over the lives of several of my friends, and was huge enough to warrant a movie spin-off in Japan. Apt, then, that Tokyo Game Show is where PlayStation Japan President Atsushi Morita announced a virtual reality version of the cat... feeding.. sim (?), with no more information beyond a 2018 release date on PSVR. But, if I get to role-play as cats, then consider me intrigued.




'Zone of the Enders' PS4 remaster adds PSVR support
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 4:19 am

It's been a while since we've seen or heard anything about Zone of the Enders. The mech classic was created by Hideo Kojima, best known for the Metal Gear series, for the PS2 in 2001. A Game Boy Advance spin-off was released six months later, followed by Zone of the Enders 2 in 2003. A third console entry was considered, but eventually cancelled. Kojima might be gone (he's off doing his own thing now), but Konami has a plan to revive the franchise. A PS4 remaster titled Zone of the Enders: Anubis Mars will be out next spring with improved graphics and PlayStation VR support. Nice.




Get a glimpse of the music behind ultra-hard platformer ‘Cuphead’
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 September 2017, 11:46 pm

Cuphead will probably be equally remembered for two things: Its already-infamous punishing difficulty and its gorgeous hand-drawn look. But folks shouldn't count out its delightful big band/swing soundtrack, which pairs perfectly with the game's 1930s-esque animated style. Studio MDHR released a teaser video showing a "making of" look into recording the title's breakaway hit, "Floral Fury."

StateSpace: the neuroscientists who want to improve your gaming skills
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 September 2017, 4:00 pm
With the proliferation of esports and the potentially huge sums of money involved if you make it to the top tier in some games it’s not surprising that there are so many third-parties carving out a niche by offering to help improve your performance. One which caught my eye recently was StateSpace [official site] which […]

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds (or PUBG, for short) matches are usually incredibly violent affairs - but that's expected with up to 100 players beating each other to a pulp, running each other over in vehicles, or blowing each other away with weapons


Wot I Think: Rogue Islands
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 September 2017, 2:00 pm
Roguelikes and roguelikelikes are not my thing. I get bored, I get frustrated, I absolutely hate the idea of starting all over again when I’ve finally had a good run and it goes sour, I hate Spelunky’s bats, I hate FTL’s fights and I would happily push Don’t Starve’s bees into a volcano. However, after […]

PS4 and Xbox owners were able to play 'Fortnite' together
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 September 2017, 2:42 pm

You know how Sony is adamant about not allowing cross-platform play between PlayStation 4, Switch and Xbox One? Well, something interesting happened in Epic Games' Fortnite over the weekend: Xbox players were found in a handful PlayStation Battle Royale matches. A Reddit user noticed that someone in his PS4 game had a space in their handle (something allowed in Xbox Gamertags, but not on PS4), and then the thread picked up to include further examples like a father and son playing together on disparate consoles. A Twitch stream with video proof is embedded below. Curious, indeed.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has 24 guns currently available, each with its own set of scopes and attachments to glue on, which means it’s fair to say that keeping track of them all can be a little difficult. This Battlegrounds weapons guide will make that easier. Specifically, we’ve come up with several ‘builds’ that you can follow. […]
