The first 'Wolfenstein II' add-on pack is available now
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 December 2017, 3:33 pm

Killing Nazis and protesting are two of the most American things you can do. And if you need another avenue for (virtually) doing the former, that's where the first expansion for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus comes in. "The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe" changes up the base game's formula with a new protagonist who, thanks to his football skills, can run through walls and Nazis alike. Sounds good? There are two more packs incoming, and you can pick them up as part of the $25 season pass.

The next Xbox voice chat app will work on your phone
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 December 2017, 1:41 pm

Microsoft introduced a new beta of the Xbox phone app today, which appears to include the testing of party chat on your mobile device. Presumably, this will allow you to chat with your Xbox party on your phone, similar to the way the Nintendo Switch works. While the Xbox app is available for both iOS and Android, this new beta appears to only be available at the Google Play Store.

Nintendo is really excited about the Switch's detachable gamepads
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 December 2017, 2:30 pm

Nintendo has always believed in the power of local multiplayer games. The company built a business creating digital experiences that are best when shared by people sitting in the same room, on the same couch -- not simply connected via headphones and tinny chat services.

The Switch is a testament to this history. The console itself doesn't support voice chat or online invitations, instead relying on a separate smartphone app to connect anyone who dares to play Splatoon 2 with a friend in another city. The hardware is built for local multiplayer: It's a portable system with two small controllers attached to either side of the screen, making it easy for newcomers to join a game in-person.

For veteran Zelda and Mario producer Yoshiaki Koizumi, these detachable controllers -- called Joy-Cons -- are the most intriguing aspect of the Switch.

Delve – Mining Value Down but Still Dominant

Alpha Ship Spotlight - Typhoon
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 December 2017, 11:26 am


In the first of fifteen Alpha Ship Spotlights, today we look at the Typhoon class battleship.

The Typhoon is a highly versatile close to mid-range brawler that delivers massive missile damage while having the tank to last. Praised by its proponents and loathed by those who end up being in its sights, this battleship is one of the most iconic hulls in the Republic Fleet.

Its reputation comes from its versatility, with an ability to utilize either projectile turret or missile based weapons systems. For the more daring (and sometimes a bit crazy) pilot who prefers an off the wall loadout, a sometimes-questionable combination of both systems can also be viable.

Packing the medium and low slots to put up a formidable tank with surprising utility, supplemented by bonuses to missile rate of fire and explosion velocity, the Typhoon tends to be at home in front line combat roles where it excels at dealing vicious damage.

In Detail:

Class: Battleship

Weapons: 6 Turrets / 6 Launchers

Slot Layout:

  • 7 High Power Slots
  • 5 Medium Power Slots
  • 7 Low Power Slots
  • 3 Large Rig Slots


(Per level of Minmatar Battleship)

  • 5% bonus to Rapid Heavy Missile, Cruise Missile and Torpedo Launcher rate of fire.
  • 5% bonus to Cruise Missile and Torpedo explosion velocity.

'Grand Theft Auto' publisher Take-Two opens an indie label
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 December 2017, 12:21 pm

Take-Two is the latest major games publisher to open up an indie label. From the sounds of it, Private Division will operate like a smaller scale version of Take-Two itself, giving developers leeway to work on things at their own pace and not worry about pumping out a sea of annual sequels.

Ataribox delays pre-orders due to development problems
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 December 2017, 9:36 am

Preorders for the Ataribox were scheduled to start today, December 14th, but it appears that plan has hit a snag. Atari sent out an email today that said it's taking longer than expected "to create the platform and ecosystem the Atari community deserves."

The company wants to make sure its product lives up to expectations, so it's delaying the preorders and until it can figure out whatever issues the Ataribox is facing. An updated launch plan is going to be announced in the next few weeks, and the Ataribox team will keep supporters in the loop about what's going on.
