'The Orange Box' comes to Xbox One
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 8:30 am

It's been more than nine years since Half-Life 2: Episode Two came out and, yeah, that cliffhanger still stings. Thankfully, Microsoft's Larry Hryb has announced that The Orange Box is now available on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility. That gives everyone the chance to soften the blow of Valve's contempt for its audience by once again replaying five of the company's best games. The legendary bundle combines Half-Life 2, its two episodic sequels, Team Fortress Two and some rando game about physics puzzles that'll probably never take off. It's not just The Orange Box that's now available for your nostalgia, since Galaga Legions and Joe Danger 2: The Movie are also now available.

Rusty Lake: Roots Brings Eerie Adventure Puzzling
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 7:35 am
“Our never reviewing the utterly incredible Rusty Lake Hotel is our greatest failing,” John declared yesterday after seeing the follow-up Rusty Lake: Roots [official site] hit PC. Hey, don’t look at me – I only write news. Speaking of: Rusty Lake: Roots is now out, bringing more slightly eerily adventure-o-puzzling antics. It’s exploring one man’s […]

The Flare Path: In The Denmark Strait
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 8:00 am
The trick of using high prices to imply high quality goes back a very long way in digital wargame publishing. Computer Bismarck, the title that launched the genre in January 1980, was advertised as “the $2160 wargame” ($60 for the software, $2100 for the Apple II Plus necessary to run it). SSI proudly proclaimed their […]

Rising PLEX Prices And The End Of Gambling
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 8:00 am
As part of my research into real money trading in EVE, I keep track of the price of PLEX in Jita. The average price of 30 days of game time reached 1.2 billion ISK yesterday. Since CCP shut down I WANT ISK on 12 October, the price of PLEX increased by

Bad at EVE
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 8:21 am
I can freely admit that I’m not the best player when it comes to EvE as a whole. I am at best “ok” in PvP, and when I do my trading I am well aware that I’m making stupid decisions from time to time. There are times when I feel

The Daily Grind: Have you ever been propositioned in an MMO for loot?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 8:00 am
Get your grimaces and side-eyes on: Kotaku put a piece out last week about “sugar daddies” in MMOs, proving once again that this genre is the mainstream’s favorite whipping boy. The publication interviewed a handful of MMO players across a number of MMO players who have been propositioned or simply creeped on by people offering in-game stuff in exchange for various… let’s [...]

'Doom' unleashes hell with a new arcade mode
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 7:20 am

If you've shotgunned and boot-stomped your way through the new Doom campaign (and if you haven't yet, you should) fear not: Bethesda has plenty more demon hunting ready to go. The developer released "Free Update 4" this week, which comes with a nifty arcade mode. Every gun, suit and "Rune" upgrade is unlocked from the start, giving you the best possible edge in the battlefield. The aim is to blitz through the "streamlined" game in the shortest time possible, avoiding enemy attacks and racking up multipliers. Points are rewarded for butt-kicking your opponents, leading to a final score that you can compare with friends.

Blizzard launches its own cross-game voice chat service
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 6:06 am

About a year ago, Blizzard revealed a chat service for all of its Battle.net multiplayer games, starting with Overwatch. Last month it killed the Battle.net name altogether, saying multiplayer support is a "normal expectation" that no longer requires its own service. Now, the World of Warcraft maker has rolled out Blizzard Voice, a chat service that works across all its multiplayer titles.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew [official site] – Ubisoft’s virtual reality starship command adventure – has had its release date pushed back into 2017. March 14, 2017 to be precise.

The Oatmeal's latest Kickstarter hit is a monster card game
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 5:05 am

The Oatmeal's Exploding Kittens project took Kickstarter by storm and raised an impressive $8.8 million. Now, the online sensation is back on the crowdfunding platform with another card game, and it's all about building monsters that can eat horribly hairy, axe-wielding, laser-toting infants. Matthew Ingram (that's The Oatmeal's artist's name) has teamed up with his Exploding Kittens collaborator Elan Lee yet again to create Bears vs Babies. The project is already a hit after having raised $1.3 million, but that amount's bound to grow with 27 days left to the campaign.

The 'Star Trek: Bridge Crew' VR game is delayed to March 2017
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2016, 4:04 am

Ubisoft's upcoming VR game Star Trek: Bridge Crew seems to instil an excitement in certain people that just can't be matched. And so it is with a heavy heart that I bring you news of the game's delay. Originally scheduled for November 29th, it's now been pushed back to March 14th, 2017.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a collaborative game in the vein of Artemis or Space Team. In it, you'll assume one of four positions -- captain, engineer, weapons or pilot -- and then work with your team mates to complete objectives. It's a VR-only experience, and so is only coming to PC and PlayStation 4 for now.

Paragon shows off the Countess, arriving October 25th
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2016, 7:00 pm
Late October is the time to start having the creepy stuff show up in your game, right? Like a vampire stalking you in the shadows, teleporting up to you and killing your characters midway through a match of Paragon. That’s pretty scary. It’s also going to be very real with the addition of the Countess on October 25th. The Countess [...]

Massively Overthinking: Real solutions to the MMO toxicity problem
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2016, 8:00 pm
Toxicity. It’s plagued online spaces since long before there were MMORPGs and other online video games, as any old school BBS user can attest. But it’s a problem we deal with all the same, maybe more now as lines between genres have blurred and gaming evolves into an accepted mainstream activity. And solving the MMO toxicity problem is the topic MOP Patron [...]
