Sony will cease PS Vita production in Japan next year
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2018, 3:11 am

At the 2018 Tokyo Game Show, Sony has announced the birth of a new product and what could possibly be the final nail in the coffin for another. Sony Interactive Entertainment SVP Hiroyuki Oda has revealed that the company will cease PS Vita's production in Japan sometime in 2019. Further, he said the electronics/gaming giant has no plans to create a successor, echoing Shuhei Yoshida's revelation way back in 2015 that Sony doesn't see a market for a follow-up to the handheld console.

A Five Keepstar Day

While I was at work the Keepstars I highlighted earlier in the week were destroyed.  The EU time zone team got some shiny kills. While I only mentioned four in my post it turns out that there was a fifth ready to be knocked off down in Tenerifis

S3E37 - Tabletop RPGs - “Imagination Adventure Calvinball”
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 8:00 pm
Tabletop RPGs
In this episode:
  • This week we discuss where we currently stand with tabletop RPGs.  Beej got a recent chance to start up a regular group again and accidentally fell into the GM role.  Void is super interested in the possibilities of tabletop gaming and has tried some home brew options.
Weekly Geekery
  • BJ cancelled WoW but picked up SWTOR again and dove deep into other Star Wars stuff like Galaxy of Heroes, the Order 66 Podcast, Legends of the Galaxy, the Rebels sourcebook, and the Ahsoka novel.
  • Void is probably still obsessed with Spider-Man, although it’s impossible to know with this time-shifted episode.  He also watched some WWII movies, Oceans 8, got around to trying the Megaman 11 demo, and finally got his hands on the early access version of the Lord of the Rings Living Card Game (or LotR LCG if you prefer).

Tactical seafaring roguelike RPG Depth Of Extinction rises from the depths soon
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 5:21 pm
Take XCOM’s squad combat, mash it up with a post-apocalyptic roguelike, add a dash of FTL and you’ve got something that looks a lot like HOF Studios’s Depth Of Extinction. Due for launch “soon” – possibly even this month – this one has flown just under my radar. Not too surprising, given that it’s set partially […]

Super Pilot is F-Zero with a level editor and out now in early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 6:16 pm
Super Pilot is classic Nintendo racer F-Zero (either X or GX is up for debate) with a level editor, and developers Dopagames don’t care to hide that at all. Race around at a thousand miles an hour against dozens of bots, defy gravity, shoot off the track and explode in a cloud of flaming glory, […]

Magic: The Gathering Arena opens its doors to all next week

You kids may have your Hearthstones, your Eternals and even your Slay The Spires, but there’s still nothing quite like passively aggressing […]

Destiny 2: Forsaken's Gambit mode is open to everyone this weekend
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 4:16 pm

With the base Destiny 2 free for PS Plus members through the month of September, Bungie is determined to sell newcomers on Forsaken -- and that means giving players a taste of what they're missing. The developer is making Forsaken's Gambit multiplayer mode available to everyone between September 21st and September 23rd. It might be worth a look, especially if you're not usually fond of human-versus-human combat.

THQ Nordic buy Alone In The Dark and Act Of War series, might consider sequels
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 2:27 pm
Continuing to hoover up every neglected video game series that’s remembered half-fondly, THQ Nordic today announced they’re buying the rights to horror series Alone In The Dark and Eugen’s real-time strategy ’em up Act Of War. These two had been owned by The Creature Wearing The Skin Of Atari – who largely seem poor carers […]

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam adds multi-map Multiplayer Campaign mode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 1:27 pm
“You may have won the battle,” cries an unusually eloquent trash-talker on the other team, “but you haven’t won the war!” In Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, his anachronistic cussing-out may now actually be correct. A free update to the first-person shooter today added the new ‘Multiplayer Campaign’ mode, where 64 players fight across multiple maps […]

Five choppers (and a fistful of variants) are now available […]

'PUBG' could be en route to PlayStation 4 this year
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 12:43 pm

Since 2017, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been exclusive to PC and Xbox. That could be changing. The battle royale game may appear on PlayStation 4 soon if a Korean ratings board slip-up (spotted by Eurogamer) is to be believed. Each time I've spoken with PUBG Corp over the past year, whoever I've talked to said that a PlayStation 4 version wasn't in the cards because the team wanted to get the Xbox version up to par with the PC first. It looks like that time may have come.

Wot I Think: The Gardens Between
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 11:00 am
The Gardens Between is all about reminiscing. It plays like two friends talking about all the adventures they’ve had, with the conversation flowing as they remember details and go back over stories that’ve grown with the telling. “Do you remember…?” it seems to say. “Oh yes, but before that-!” “And of course there was the […]

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti review-in-progress: A true 4K monster card
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 11:46 am
For the three of you whose goal in life has only ever been to play games on max settings at 4K with nary a drop in frame rate at 60fps, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti is a dream come true. A rather expensive £1049 / $1150 dream, all told, but a dream nonetheless. For this 4K monster […]

Has Divinity: Original Sin 2 been improved by its updates?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 12:00 pm
Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they’ve been changed for better or worse. I’m being stalked by six-legged space demons, I’m on the run from the fantasy police, and my chosen deity is being slowed squeezed to death by a spectral tree, but my biggest problem […]

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review-in-progress: Too much power for a Core i5 PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 9:00 am
This time tomorrow, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 will have finally arrived. There’s been a lot of fanfare around its quite nifty ray-tracing tech, not to mention all the other cool things Nvidia’s Turing cards can do, but is it really the best graphics card of all time? At the moment, it’s hard to say […]
