Quake Champions will bunny hop onto Steam too
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 3:00 pm
I’m eagerly following the progress of free-to-play shooter Quake Champions [official site]. I spent a good year of my life in the browser-based Quake Live bunny hopping, insta-gibbing and failing to rocket jump over the smallest of obstacles (seriously, I can’t rocket jump in any game), and had a blast. I haven’t had the chance to play […]

If that DLC title sounds familiar then that’s because it’s named after a map from the original Titanfall, War Games, which will now be available […]

Apple Is a Step
Closer to Making
Its Own TV Shows

David Sims,
The Atlantic

While the company's television aspirations remain largely a mystery, Apple hired two big names this week to help build its slate of original shows. Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg, presidents of Sony Pictures Television, will make the move to Cupertino this summer with experience making hits like Damages, Breaking Bad, Justified and other series. The Atlantic offers a look at what this means for Apple and what we can expect from Eddy Cue & Co. in the months to come.




'Rocket League' will die without cross-console multiplayer
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 11:00 am

All online games eventually die. But the difference between the original version of World of Warcraft and, say, Call of Duty: Ghosts is that WoW was more of a service on an open system (PC). Players were able to gradually migrate to its annual expansions, while remaining a part of the overall population.

Comparatively, CoD is a franchise with annual sequels on several different pieces of hardware, each with cordoned off players who jump from one game to the next. But sometimes you don't want to stop playing a game just because seemingly everyone has moved on after 14 months. Rocket League developer Psyonix's Jeremy Dunham has an idea for how to fix these fractured player bases: opening up cross-platform multiplayer.

Sony is losing its grip on the indie market
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 9:30 am

Here we go again.

In 2011, Microsoft was the indie king. The industry was just blossoming thanks to services like Steam and Xbox Live Arcade, which introduced independent games to huge, hungry audiences. Indie Game: The Movie was about to debut, giving fans a deep, behind-the-scenes look at the perils and triumphs of small-scale development. The Xbox 360 served as the foundational platform for the film's major projects, Super Meat Boy, Fez and Braid.

And then, the pendulum swung -- in 2012, Journey landed exclusively on the PS3. It served as a lightning rod for discussions about emotion and art in video games, and it gave Sony the momentum to transform its indie ecosystem. By July 2013, Sony had opened up its processes, allowing indie developers to self-publish their games on the company's next console, the PlayStation 4. Even Microsoft still required indies to partner with established publishers, at this point.

Microsoft attempted to regain its indie dominance with the ID@Xbox program, though that turned out to be more complicated than most developers would have liked. The launch of the Xbox One was a low-key disaster, while Sony continually dropped the mic, showcasing indie games at E3 to widespread acclaim while Microsoft played catch-up. As recently as E3 2015, Sony's head hung heavy with indie jewels.

GTA publishers are leaving OpenIV alone after all
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 6:06 am
Grand Theft Auto V [official site] developers Rockstar Games appear to have talked parent company Take-Two Interactive out of shutting down OpenIV, a modding tool for GTA IV and V. This is good news. The makers of OpenIV received a cease-and-desist letter from Take-Two earlier this month, prompting outrage from players, but Rockstar have confirmed […]

Rockstar Games, Take Two seem to back off of PC game modders
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 11:02 pm

Earlier this month, Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two angered the PC gaming community after sending a cease and desist letter to the developers of the OpenIV modding tool. OpenIV allowed people to create modifications for GTA IV and GTA V single player, but according to its creators, the letter said their tool could "allow third parties to defeat security features of its software and modify that software in violation Take-Two's rights." Facing the threat of legal action, they announced on June 14th that they would stop distributing OpenIV.

Kador Family Heir Meets With Empress Catiz Amid Domain Security Concerns
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 5:48 pm

AMARR - The Scope has learned that Lady Hamideh Kador has arrived in the Imperial capital of Dam-Torsad a little over an hour ago for an audience with Empress Catiz I.

The audience - which is not listed on the public roster of engagements for the Empress - appears to have been arranged at short notice, and sources within the Empire indicate that it relates to security concerns surrounding a substantial increase in foreign traffic passing through the Fua constellation of Domain, which borders the region of Kador on two fronts.

The influx of through traffic in the constellation has been attributed to a large increase in Federal registered non-capsuleer vessels utilizing a route through the constellations of Fua and Yekti to reach the border with The Citadel. This allows traders and hauliers to bypass the restricted Caldari-Gallente border which has been in a state of partial lockdown since March 22nd.

Several experts at The Scope have commented that this meeting is not seen as a surprise to many political commentators, given that a total of seven strike wings from the Kador Family's standing fleet were dispatched to the Megeh and Pezarba constellations of Kador in mid-April to monitor the border chokepoints of Mod and Hiroudeh.

Speaking from within the region of Kador itself, our Scope security correspondent, Lolie Arbirelle commented that "it would appear that Lady Kador is seeking an audience with the Empress in order to discuss security concerns surrounding the use of the Empire's border systems as a bypass, which has caused a downturn in trade in the area, as well as a notable increase in piracy and opportunistic attacks by the Blood Raider Covenant in the lowsec constellation of Pezarba."

At this stage, there has been no official word from Amarr or the Kador family regarding the reasoning for Lady Kador's trip to the Imperial Palace.

The Scope will continue to report on the situation as it develops.

‘Modern Warfare Remastered’ heads to PS4 without the bundle
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 5:36 pm

If you were disappointed that you had to keep the $80 disc for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in your gaming rig to be able to play the better-reviewed Modern Warfare remaster, you're in luck. Publisher Activision has announced that it will reverse the classic bait and switch tactic it employed with Infinite Warfare by putting out Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone title on June 27th. Of course, it's not all straightforward, as the title will only be available for PS4 as a disc or digital download (at first). We've reached out to Activision for more specific information on other platform release dates.
