Wot I Think: Clockwork Empires
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 2:00 pm
Could it be that Clockwork Empires [official site], a town management sim concerning a life of toil and struggle against nightmarish entities on a strange new frontier, is so dedicated to its theme that is has deliberately conspired to drive me mad? The thought occurred to me often, as I gibbered and bellowed at my […]

Skyrim Special Edition Is An Underwhelming Upgrade On PC – But!
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 3:00 pm
Though consolefolk are revelling in a spike from fuzzy 720p to crisp-textured 1080, on PC The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition [official site] is about as transformational as wiping the toilet seat (well, depending on who exactly used it before you did). Play it today and you’ll be lucky to feel there’s been any […]

What keeps me engaged with Eve?
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 2:10 pm
This blog being pretty quiet lately is not entirely a reflection of my Eve playing, but it's not a bad proxy either.  I have been able to stay in touch with all that's going on in Eve, and wow it's a lot.  I won't try to recap any of the major

Two Years of Reavers
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 2:15 pm
The real Reavers anniversary date is October 14th so far as I can tell.  That is the earliest mention of it I can find in the forums.  But, for no real reason, the fact that another year has gone by doesn’t seem to occur to me until a week

The Stream Team: Harvesting pumpkins for RIFT’s Halloween festival
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 1:55 pm
If you aren’t a fan of pumpkins, fall is probably not your favorite season. Even in RIFT pumpkins are important! Massively OP’s MJ has been tasked with decorating the Realm of the Autumn Harvest with pumpkins. And do you know how she gets there? Through pumpkin soup! Perhaps the faeries plan on making all those gourds into lattes, or breads, [...]

Someone really wants 'No Man's Sky' developers to apologize
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 2:52 pm
The internet hivemind's vile side was at it again this morning. This time, by apparently hacking the Twitter, Linkedin and email accounts of No Man's Sky developer Hello Games. Buckle up because this gets messy. "No Man's Sky was a mistake." Following an extended period of silence from the developer, that (now deleted) tweet went out earlier today. Thinking something was afoot, Kotaku reached out to the developer via email and was told that, "No, the tweet was not a hack, but rather a disgruntled employee. The email that we sent however was official." Except the publication had received no prior emails.

Wot I Think: Dark Souls 3 – Ashes Of Ariandel
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 12:00 pm
Ashes of Arandiel is the first of two DLCs for Dark Souls III [official site], making it quite possibly the penultimate Souls adventure.

Suicide Squad concept art reveals it was once more closely tied to Justice League
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 11:43 am
Movies go through many iterative changes before they hit the big screen, so perhaps it's of little surprise that Suicide Squad looked quite different in early concept art, with a more psychedelic Enchantress and a Joker with a glasgow smile

Enjoy Vegas
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 12:26 pm
As I mentioned below, I'm not in Las Vegas this weekend, and that pains me quite a bit.  Sure, we'll be on the road next weekend for our competing vacation option (which I am excited about) but THIS weekend I should be out west talking about nerd

Aring, Genesis Region – Former Sister of EVE and Sancturary Scientist Taya Akira, notable for exposing details of the SOE's presence in Thera, has alleged that the new "Alpha" cloning technology recently developed by the SOE combines data from the SOE's Project Discovery, research from the Sanctuary's scientific outposts in Thera, and techniques hitherto unknown to New Eden's scientific community.

Speaking exclusively to the Scope, from a secure location in the Aring system, Taya Akira warned that the Sanctuary's research in Thera included exploration of "profoundly dangerous remnants of technologies touching on neurocybernetic adaptation and artificial intelligence". Akira, now the leader of an SOE splinter faction calling itself "Pharos of Thera", went on to explain that she and her group had been monitoring the SOE's Project Discovery, and believed it to be aimed at "a complete understanding of Drifter, which is to say Jove, biology whether natural, adapted or profoundly altered by integration with artificial life systems".

Taya Akira's starkest warning came with her claim that "the combination of Thera research with Project Discovery findings is dangerous in its own right, but my sources within the Sanctuary have told me that a new technique has been added to the mix and that this has unlocked the new cloning technology the Sisters have given to the core empires". Asked to explain the danger, Akira would only say, "Anoikis, Thera and the Drifters are dangerous beyond any threat you can imagine. All of humanity must beware of the danger and not blindly fall into a trap of our own making."

The Sanctuary and the Sisters of EVE leadership issued a brief comment on the claims when approached: "Our former Sister Taya Akira was a brilliant scientist but the tragic events that took place in Thera during YC116 took a great toll on her, physically and we feel sure emotionally. We would willingly welcome her back and help her to recover from that terrible experience. Nevertheless, with all respect for Taya, we must reject the claims of danger involving our hugely successful Project Discovery efforts and most certainly with regard to the new cloning technology that is vital to the ongoing defense of humanity during the Drifter Crisis."

In illustration of the importance of capsuleer efforts against the Drifters, the DED's Genesis Fleet command has commended the efforts of such capsuleer groups as the Arataka Research Consortium (ARC) and the Special Empire Response for the Assault and Penetration of Hives (SERAPH). A recent engagement between capsuleers associated with SERAPH and a combined Circadian Seeker and Drifter tactical group resulted in the destruction of more than 20 Seekers and 50 Drifter vessels in the Sazre system.

SERAPH associate Morwen Lagann had some days earlier placed an Astrahus-class citadel in close proximity to the Jove Observatory in Sazre, to observe Seeker and Drifter activity. Imagery supplied by Lagann indicates Seeker investigation and engagement with the citadel. SERAPH commander Alizabeth Vea has suggested that Drifter activity in the system is a direct response to the citadel's proximity to the observatory, although this has not been confirmed by DED intelligence's Drifter analysis group.

Tencent, Activision Blizzard, and EA among top-grossing game companies this year so far
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 October 2016, 11:30 am
If someone were to ask you which video game company was absolutely dominating the revenue charts in 2016, what would you say? Unless you cheated and read the headline, we’re guessing that Tencent wouldn’t be the first name to come to mind. Yet this is reality: According to Newzoo’s Global Games Market Report, Chinese publisher Tencent has raked in an astounding [...]
