Have You Played… Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. If you ever enjoyed digging through Fileplanet or the PC Gamer cover disc, playing every strange little Half-Life or Quake mod you could find, I think you might quite enjoy Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies […]


Godus’ Designer Has Left 22cans, No Time Frame For Release
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 11:26 am
The grim tale of Godus‘s development seems to have gotten a lot grimmer. Lead developer Konrad Naszynski’s contract expired shortly after the release of Godus Wars and wasn’t renewed, 22cans confirm, and a source tells us there’s no one left working on the game. … [visit site to read more]


Steam Top Ten: Everything Must Go
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 11:37 am
A shorter than usual weekly Steam best-sellers chart this week, primarily because almost everything is explained simply by the words “Steam Summer sale”, but partly because I’ve already spent a chunk of today compiling a big list of Sale recommendations to help our beloved readers’ purchasin’ decisions. You can have a pithy and/or explantory line […]


Space Antics With Programmable Computers In 3001SQ
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 11:41 am
As someone who can’t program computers, online space colonisation game 3001SQ [official site] is awfully intimidating. Exploring the galaxy, building planetside industrial colonies, and hanging around space stations sound nice and all, but being able to write code for your in-game ship and devices is what overwhelms me. Playing the small tech demo released to […]

Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 10:14 am
2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction jettisoned a lot of the cast from the original trilogy in favour of Mark Wahlberg et al, and one of those casualties was Tyrese Gibson

Being Brutor

Like many of us, I’ve faced hardship. This last year has presented me with some of the greater challenges of my life. Some I have failed to rise to the occasion. Others I have conquered. A few remained unresolved. I’ve heard the phrase

Mark Kern polls players about his spiritual successor to Firefall
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 12:00 pm
Will Firefall fans want Mark Kern at the helm of a game again? That’s the question of the hour, as Kern has proposed engaging in a new project that will function as a “spiritual successor” to Firefall. His idea is to make Ember, a game in which players will assume the role of “reapers” who will use mech suits to forcibly terraform [...]

More MCU Rewatching: Thor
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 10:00 am

After the horribleness that was re-watching Thor Dark World, I decided to give the original Thor another shot.  I remembered the main story and how it interacted with the rest of the MCU but I had forgotten most of the plot.

Having now re-watched it I have to say Thor is a much better movie than Dark World.  It has a coherent plot and a consistent tone.  It has characters that are interesting and who's motivations are understood.  It's overall a good introduction to Thor.

I don't think it's a great movie, but it's somewhere in the middle of the pack for MCU movies.  I was pleasantly surprised to find it better than I remembered.


Revisiting the Drake Herald
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 10:58 am
Wishful thinking and the ship's progression have visions of the Drake Herald being hangar ready in Alpha 2.5 dancing in my head! Of my small ships, this is the one I'm most excited to have flight ready. I'm ecstatic about the game play options Star Citizen is building into small ships.


Going Underground: The Division’s First Expansion Out
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 8:51 am
The surface of New York City is iconic, sure, but its underside is something even better: mythic. That’s where blind albino alligators grow massive in the dark, where leaking steam pipes vent through manholes, where the Mole People live, where rats larger than dogs flood tunnels in devouring hordes, where trains stop at secret doors, […]

Mass Effect Novels To Bridge Gap Between Andromeda
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 10:00 am
Last week I wrote about how Mass Effect: Andromeda [official site] wasn’t chained by the choices you made at the end of Mass Effect 3, and how that left a lot of questions unanswered. Well, answers are coming next month in the first of four Mass Effect tie-in novels published by Titan Books that aim […]

RIFT’s summer patch includes starter guilds, dungeon veterans, and the 64-bit alpha
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 9:00 am
Summer is the perfect time for cookouts, beach parties, sunburns, and meaty MMO patches. At least RIFT thinks so, as Trion Worlds is preparing Update 3.7 for release some time in July. RIFT always likes to keep experimenting with new ideas, and Update 3.7 won’t be exempt from this. One of these ideas is that all new players will automatically [...]

Elder Scrolls Online’s Matt Firor on One Tamriel, Cyrodiil PvP, and housing
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 10:00 am
For many of us at Massively OP, Elder Scrolls Online won E3, if that’s really a thing, but that’s partly because all ZeniMax Online Studios really had to do was show up when most other MMORPGs barely made a showing at all. Even so, ESO did much more than just show up; in fact, it made it to the main stage during the Bethesda [...]

G2A attempts to appease game publishers with royalty payments
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 8:30 am

After coming under fire for how it handles sales of illegal video game keys, reselling website G2A has introduced a number of new policies that it hopes will appease developers affected by the practice. The company announced that it will let game makers apply for royalty payments for any titles that appear on its marketplace. It comes after SpeedRunners publisher TinyBuild accused G2A of failing to act on $450,000 in potential lost sales, after scammers used stolen credit cards to buy legitimate keys and auction them off for profit.




Firewatch, Ford, And Copyright Infringement Online
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 6:20 am
Olly Moss’s work on Firewatch [official site] is so beautiful and distinctive. It’s how I became aware of the game before I even knew it was a game – pictures of his creations tweeted into my timeline. They tap into that glorious “See America” tradition of stylised, romanticised imagery of national parks and other awe-inspiring […]


Investigating The Fingerguns Of Murder, She Wrote (A Hidden Object Adventure)
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2016, 8:00 am
It should perhaps tell you something about me that in order to install Murder, She Wrote (A Hidden Object Adventure) I had to first remove the Murder, She Wrote DVD from the disc drive. I suppose I am what you might call “the target audience”. I should also explain that I have actually played Murder, […]
