Google's VR paint game 'Tilt Brush' will get multiplayer
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2016, 9:54 pm

Google's Tilt Brush debuted in September 2014 as a virtual reality painting experience -- immersion with the creative simplicity of MS Paint, as The Verge put it. They've added more in-game tools and hosted the odd art exhibit in the two-year interim. But as more VR headsets filter into players' hands, the game will soon get a big feature: Multiplayer. There's no release date yet, but here's a few things to look forward to while we wait.

Betawatch: Chronicles of Elyria begins the search for more money (September 30, 2016)
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2016, 8:00 pm
Good news, fans of Chronicles of Elyria! You can now give the developers more of your money via the game’s web store, which is good for them, as they need another cool three million to finish the game. No refunds. The negative reaction to this was apparently quite surprising to studio founder Jeromy Walsh. But hey, that’s just a game [...]

Twitch rolls out video uploads, clip editing on iOS and Android
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2016, 6:59 pm
While Amazon-linked Prime features are the big news out of TwitchCon, the livestreaming service is bringing some long-promised new features to users. Starting today, users can upload videos directly to Twitch. That means streamers can apply their video editing and production skills to archived clips for their audiences, without having to take them somewhere else, like YouTube Gaming. The feature was announced at TwitchCon last year, but at least it's here now in beta form.

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2016, 5:00 pm

Paladins touts one million early access players, starts console beta sign-ups
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2016, 3:00 pm
Is Hi-Rez Studios’ Paladins having a good week or a bad one? It’s… kind of hard to tell, to be honest. It probably didn’t help matters that the game’s had to fend off accusations of being a mere Overwatch clone, yet it seems to be doing very well for itself in early access so far. Hi-Rez reports that Paladins has [...]

AMARR PRIME – In the final phase of the most sacred rituals of the Amarr Empire, the noble Royal Heirs of the Imperial Houses of Amarr, who served during the reign of Her Imperial Majesty Jamyl I, surrendered their lives in the Rite of Shathol’Syn tonight.

All of Holy Amarr remembers the faith and service of the late noble sovereigns of the Houses of the Privy Council:

With the deaths of their noble predecessors, and the ascension of Her Imperial Majesty Catiz I, the Houses of the Privy Council are now led by the newly confirmed sovereign lords of their family domains:

His Royal Highness Arim Ardishapur, Holder of Derelik and the Demesne of Ardishapur
Her Royal Highness Hamideh Kador, Holder of Kador
His Royal Majesty Farokh Khanid, King Khanid III of the Khanid Kingdom and Lord of the Marches

The CSM 11 Summit 1 Meeting Minutes are out
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2016, 12:21 pm

CSM 11 recently finished its first summit in Reykjavik, discussing all aspects of developing and running EVE with a wide representation of EVE's developers, producers and executives.

The democratically elected Council of Stellar Management has long been an important advisory group to CCP and at least half the council has typically been flown to CCP HQ twice a year to allow for seamless communication and exchange of opinion.

This year big changes are coming to EVE with Clone States fast approaching. CCP invited the whole CSM to attend the summit in person. Everyone accepted and we had four days of solid meetings and feature demos with all 14 councillors. 

The Meeting Minutes

The meeting minutes are a collaboration between CCP and the CSM. A CCP staff member jots down meeting mintues on our internal wiki during each meeting and they are then edited through an open editing process on the same wiki. Every CCP staff member attending a meeting, and the CSM, must review and approve the version of the minutes that goes out. Typically not a lot is changed. Sentences get tuned to better convey meaning and of course a few tiny bits are redacted to preserve surprise and wonder at a later date.

This summit's minutes can be found here. We look forward to reading, and taking part in, your discussions of them. If you wish to discuss them on the forums, please visit this thread.
