Betawatch: The Repopulation changes hands (January 20, 2017)
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 7:00 pm
The good news for fans of The Repopulation is that the game is coming back online. The bad news is... well, it's completely changed hands, with Idea Fabrik (owners of the Hero Engine) taking the game and making it their own. Will it be as good as it could have been? Will it release and be stable? We just don't [...]

Trump at 2AM: The new Oval Office in virtual reality
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 5:54 pm

Donald Trump stands before me with a grim look on his face, lightly leaning against the Oval Office's Resolute desk. Moonlight pours in through the office's rear windows as a phone quietly rings. It's 2am, and something has happened -- and a new President holds the weight of the world on his shoulders. I'm looking at this surreal, frozen scene through the lens of an HTC Vive. It's a free virtual reality experience called "Wide Awake," and it tells a simple, concise story: no matter who Donald Trump was before or what you may have thought of him, he's now the guy who answers the phone when shit hits the fan.

South Korean 'World of Warcraft' cooking show goes live tonight
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 6:14 pm

The seminal MMORPG World of Warcraft may have dwindled from its peak of 12 million players back in 2010, but Blizzard's still supporting the 12-year-old game with content and events. To celebrate the latest expansion, Legion, the studio built an elaborate cafe at Germany's Gamescom convention that served themed food and cocktails. But for everyone who couldn't fly out to Europe for some nerd cuisine, they've lined up the next best thing: A cooking show debuting tonight hosted by Choi Hyun-seok, a famous chef known for appearances on South Korean television.

‘Boing’ said Zebedee.
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 5:08 pm
I am showing my age here, but I remember the Magic Roundabout. I am not sure if Zebedee actually said Boing or went Boing but either way it is a very good description of the state of play in Eve at the moment. I wouldn’t be surprised if


In 2017, Dungeons and Dragons Online will officially add its third campaign setting to its melting pot with Ravenloft. Executive Producer Rob Ciccolini wrote in his producer's letter that the "fan favorite" setting would come later this year as the game's third expansion along with sentient weapons. Ravenloft is only a part of DDO's grand plans for the year. Ciccolini [...]

Bloody 90s-styled shooter Strafe is coming out in March
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 1:58 pm
The blocky, gore-filled FPS Strafe [official site] is sidestepping onto PC on March 28, channeling the rocket launchers and shotguns of 1996 and combining them with some roguelite shiz. You pick a main weapon out of three guns to start then pile-drive through randomised levels, leaving the blood of your enemies behind as a “guidance […]


Wot I Think: Urban Empire
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 2:00 pm
Urban Empire [official site] is a city-building strategy game about politics and people rather than residential zones and monuments. Placing you as successive members of a dynasty, each acting as the mayor of a city developing against the backdrop of the previous two centuries of European history, it’s about votes and influence as well as […]

Examining the potential for exercise and exploration in Pokemon GO
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 2:00 pm
Just in time for your New Year's resolution, we reported on how Pokemon Go was featured in a peer-reviewed study on getting people to move more. But truthfully, Pokemon and Nintendo have built exercise games several times in the past, and Niantic never advertises PoGO as an exercise game. It's an ARG. In fact, the official site never mentions exercise, just exploring. That being said, we don't [...]

NVIDIA's new Shield TV is more of the same, with a better gamepad
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 2:00 pm

We expected NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang to introduce a revamped Shield TV at CES; what we didn't expect was for the new device to practically be a carbon copy of the original. Sure, it's a lot smaller, but inside it's running all of the same hardware we saw in 2015. And yet, NVIDIA claims it's still much more powerful than any other set-top box. That's a testament to how robust the company's X1 chip is, but it's disappointment new for anyone who was hoping for something fresh. On the bright side, the new $200 Shield comes with a new controller that's light years ahead of the last one. It's not revolutionary, but you can think of it as a refined spin on NVIDIA's original set-top box concept.

Limbo and Inside devs tease new moody game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 11:10 am
Playdead, the Danish studio behind grimdark puzzle-platformers Limbo and Inside, have shared a sneaky image from their next game. It seems to show a pilot or spaceman wearing a deployed parachute watching a fiery crash and, well, I won’t assumptively declare the game will following the Limside model but with a picture like that I […]
