Report: Nintendo NX is a tablet with detachable controllers
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 July 2016, 1:00 pm

Remember those early reports that described Nintendo's next game console as a TV / portable hybrid device? According to Eurogamer, they were right on the nose. Eurogamer sources claim that the Nintendo NX is a handheld game console with detachable controllers, a TV base station and NVIDIA Tegra graphics. In other words, it sounds like a standalone Wii U gamepad dialed up to 11.

Halo Wars 2 Dev Diary Explores Threatening New Villain
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 July 2016, 10:28 am
I’ve always been a big fan of the universe that the Halo games are set in, and with Halo Wars 2 [official site] headed our way in February of next year, I’m keen on gleaning as much information about its story as possible. That’s good for me, because 343 Industries has released a short video […]


Have You Played… Hardly Workin’?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 July 2016, 10:32 am
‘Played’ isn’t quite the right word for Hardly Workin’ [archived official site]. You may need Quake II for it but Hardly Workin’ is machinima – a movie made in a video game, before that term was yoinked by a site which became a #contentnetwork. What made Hardly Workin’ stand out to me was that you […]

The Pokemon Go news never ends. Here’s the best of it from the last 24 hours.

World of Warships removes a skill without offering players a respec option
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 July 2016, 11:00 am
One of the skills in World of Warships was Situational Awareness, but it’s been patched out. Players could choose to take the skill, or they could choose to have no idea when enemy ships spotted them until the opening salvo. In other words, it was functionally a necessity. So the skill is becoming a baseline ability for all ships with [...]

Xbox One S 'Halo' and 'Madden 17' bundles arrive August 23rd
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 July 2016, 9:47 am

Microsoft dropped the price of the original Xbox One to $249 over the weekend, and now the company is offering more details on the new Xbox One S. The first two bundles that pair games with the smaller 4K-ready console will ship August 23rd, but they're up for pre-order today. First, a Madden NFL 17 option comes with a One S that offers a download of the game, 1TB of storage, seven Madden Ultimate Team Pro Packs and one month of EA Access for $349. Unfortunately, there's no 500GB model available with the popular football title and the bundle will only be available in the US and Canada for now.




Rhythm Heaven Megamix Impressions
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 July 2016, 10:00 am

I had never played a Rhythm Heaven game before and when Nintendo stealth launched this one on the eShop I heard a bunch of people I trust say that it's a great jumping on point for the series.

It's essentially a "best of" from the Rhythm Heaven series and the gameplay itself is made up of a ton of different mini rhythm games.  As someone who likes music games I thought this one might be for me.

It kind of is and kind of isn't.  I like the rhythm games and have fun with them but each one individually is way too short for my taste.  I'm used to music games where you play through an entire song, not a minigame that takes less than 30 seconds.  I feel like I haven't really been able to sink my teeth into any of the minigames enough to enjoy them because of their short length.

That being said, what is there is really fun.  I played this game pretty solidly for a few days and then put it on the backburner for 3DS games.  I think I'll dip back into this one next time I'm traveling for short bursts of rhythm game fun.


When Is No Man’s Sky Coming Out?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 July 2016, 7:32 am
I’m loath to write another No Man’s Sky [official site] release date story because those discussions have led to or fed into some particularly damaging and extreme responses. But I’m also part of a community which is curious to play the finished version (and part of the professional community who need to know timings for […]

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault Online [official site] is a long name. Too long, in fact, so I’m going to call it by the more palatable acronym GITS-SAC-FAO for the rest of this article. Anyway, GITS-SAC-FAO has left paid Early Access and is in free-to-play open beta ahead of a […]

Man drives a car into Nexon’s headquarters
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 July 2016, 9:00 am
So… last week we reminded you all that you should not threaten to hurt people over a video game. You also should not actually hurt someone over a video game. And you definitely should not drive someone else’s car through the front of a company’s office building because you are upset about video games. That’s not a hypothetical; that’s exactly [...]

The Daily Grind: What MMORPG city would you not want to see destroyed?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 July 2016, 8:00 am
ArenaNet teased last week that some sort of doom might befall the Krytan city Divinity’s Reach in the impending living world season, and I’m sad. Guild Wars 2 players have already seen Lion’s Arch fall once and been rebuilt. World of Warcraft players saw a cataclysm rampage many zones in the old world, creating a literal and figurative rift in the [...]

Jalopy: Trapped In The Sausage Shop

Something that happens every now and again is I try to play Jalopy [official site]. It’s the driving game where you’re tasked with keeping a dilapidated old car roadworthy as you go on trips across the former Eastern bloc. I really like Jalopy, but I don’t think the game and I are a natural fit […]
