It is, to refresh your memory, a scrolling beat ’em up with a touch of action-RPG as a group of plucky heroes kick […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 February 2017, 2:59 am
Raised by screens is an intermittent autobiography, structured around the PC games I played in my youth. Most instalments are currently only available to RPS subscribers, but I shall compile them somewhere once the series reaches its eventual end. Some spoilers for Planescape: Torment’s ending follow.

Non-profit aims to preserve the hidden history of video games
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 February 2017, 9:27 pm

It's relatively easy for developers to preserve classic video games through emulators, museums, remasters and retro consoles. But what about the culture that surrounded it, such as ads, boxes, magazines and gamers' own experiences? That's where the newly established Video Game History Foundation wants to help. The non-profit hopes to collect and digitize as many video game artifacts as possible to understand the full context of a game or console. For instance, it's building an NES USA Launch Collection that covers the atmosphere surrounding Nintendo's American debut, including the company's sales pitch as it reassured retailers burned by the video game industry crash.

DC Universe Online makes Weapon Combos more potent over time
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 February 2017, 7:00 pm
Weapon combos are the main source of damage for players who focus on weapons in DC Universe Online. This is not a complex or unusual concept. But for players who focus on powers or employ a hybrid style, weapon combos aren't nearly as important. So as part of the stat rebalancing for the game, the developers had to find a [...]

Visit NASA's newly discovered planets in 'Elite: Dangerous'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 February 2017, 7:43 pm

Sadly, it's unlikely that you'll ever visit the Trappist-1 system's newly-discovered Earth-sized planets in your lifetime... not unless someone develops near-light speed travel, anyway. However, you'll at least have the option of a virtual tour. Frontier Developments is promising Ars Technica that the second Elite: Dangerous version 2.3 beta will let you visit Trappist-1 and its seven worlds. The developers are really just modifying an existing system in a similar location (Core Sys Sector XU-P a5-0), but that still means that you'll get a rough sense of what it would be like. You'll get to land on at least some of them, two of which will be Earth-like.

What's on TV: 'Horizon Zero Dawn,' 'Moonlight'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 February 2017, 8:16 pm

This week's big premieres are Horizon Zero Dawn on the PS4, and Nintendo's Switch console.

You can snag Academy Award Best Picture winner Moonlight on Blu-ray or video on-demand, while Amazon Prime instroduces season four of Annedroids.

There aren't any big Netflix original premieres this week, but you should know that after tomorrow Clueless is going away, as well as the Jaws movies and the TV series Survivors, while the Jurassic Park flicks (1 - 3) are rotating on to the service.

One game I’ve overlooked in the eternal crusade to remake or remaster every game released prior to 2014 is Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap [official site], a remake of a Sega Master System platformer from 1989.
