Titanfall 2 adding ‘Live Fire’ one-minute mode for free
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:30 am
A zippy new multiplayer mode is coming to Titanfall 2 [official site], offering 6v6 Pilot-only close-quarters action with one-minute rounds. I know a lot of our gushing about our favourite FPS of 2016 has focused on its campaign but the multiplayer is cracking too. It doesn’t hurt that all new multiplayer modes and modes are […]


Have You Played… La Mulana?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. While Lara Croft is shooting a bear in the face, Nathan Drake is hanging out the back of a plane, and Indiana Jones is squabbling with his dad, the heroes of La Mulana […]

World of Warcraft scrambles to fix post-7.1.5 class balance
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:00 am
World of Warcraft's most recent content update isn't a week old yet, but it's already dug itself into a pit of controversy. You see, Patch 7.1.5 contained significant balance tweaks for many classes, but instead of making things better across the board, it actually knocked some classes to the bottom of the heap (in particular, every Hunters spec) and created [...]

Funcom stresses the importance of lore and mystery in Conan Exiles
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 11:00 am
Conan lore is probably the most contentious thing about the franchise, and Funcom today has clarified the focus of that lore in Conan Exiles when it hits early access later this month. The game is set specifically between Xuthal of the Dusk (The Slithering Shadow) and A Witch Shall be Born, a pair of stories written in 1933 and 1934. You're not [...]

NVIDIA's original Shield TV gets the new model's smarts
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:43 am

Nvidia unveiled a new Shield TV box at CES, but the list of upgrades was pretty slim. It has a funky new controller, with a mesh of triangles peppering the grips, but otherwise it's the same hardware with some extra software bells and whistles. If you have the older model, good news -- today, you're getting all those non-hardware additions too. They include a new foundation -- Android 7.0 Nougat -- and a bunch of new apps including Amazon Video, Twitter, the NFL, Comedy Central and Vimeo.

Magnificent 7 (2016) Review
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:00 am

This the the movie that finally solidified the fact that I just don't like Westerns.  I've always been ambivalent with Westerns but Magnificent 7 had enough actors that I like that it convinced me to give it a shot.

It is a very mediocre movie.  It's completely predictable.  The pacing is sooooo slow.  I think it's a stereotypical Western but made in 2016 instead of the golden age of Westerns.  It just completely and utterly failed to click with me.

I even held out for the end hoping something would redeem it.  Maybe the fight scenes would get better.  Maybe there would be a cool twist.  Maybe a character would actually have character development!  No on all counts.

At least now I've learned that while I don't mind a Western setting (see my love of Westworld) I do hate the genre of Westerns.  The genre styles and conventions just aren't for me.


Zoom-o: Windows 10 ‘Game Mode’ to boost performance
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 9:30 am
Windows 10 will add a ‘Game Mode’ to “improve the performance of your PC games”, Microsoft have announced. They don’t say much about what it actually is but hey, free performance boosts are always welcome. I’d also accept it changing my desktop wallpaper to some glowy tendril-y abstract art made in 1999 with a pirated […]


TUG works on producing a 'minimally viable product'
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 9:00 am
Emerging from months of relative silence, Nerd Kingdom penned a short Kickstarter update about what's happening with the social sandbox world of TUG. It sounds like progress is still going slowly and that fans shouldn't expect to see anything big soon. However, there should be more communication going forward. "Into the coming months, we will be focusing on what is [...]

Nintendo's Switch doesn't come with a charging Joy-Con grip
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 9:00 am

If you're dead-set on owning a Nintendo Switch, you should probably start thinking about your charging setup. In addition to the main unit, you'll need to keep the detachable "Joy-Con" controllers topped up, which could prove tricky if you're playing the console exclusively at home. That's because the Joy-Con Grip bundled with the Switch (shown above) doesn't have any charging capabilities of its own. As Eurogamer reports, it's basically just a plastic shell designed to keep the two Joy-Cons in place.

Hand-ski into VR Early Access game Lucid Trips
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 6:42 am
One of the games fresh out of the Steam oven (well, sort of still in the oven because it’s in early access but you’re allowed to start eating it now) is Lucid Trips [official site]. It caught my eye because of its dreamscapes and sense of motion suggested by the trailers I saw. It’s a […]

New enemies are coming to Darkest Dungeon [official site] as part of the upcoming free update adding a shorter (but not easier) ‘Radiant’ mode. That’s the word from developers Red Hook Studios, who say they’re planning to launch the update by early February with other a number of “quality of life” tweaks too. The bad […]


The RPG Scrollbars: A Heretical Quest For Glory

Now, as long-time readers of this column will know, there’s a few games I like to go back to on a regular basis. Ultima VII, of course, as one of the finest RPGs ever brought to our plane of existence by carol-singing angels who admittedly suck at QA. Quest For Glory IV, as pretty much […]

The Daily Grind: Will you give The Repopulation another chance?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 8:00 am
The after-hours Friday revelation that The Repopulation is relaunching early this year took a lot of our readers by surprise. The much-wanted sandbox MMORPG had been offline for over a year, and though updates had been scarce, we'd been told Above & Beyond was using Fragmented's profits to re-home Repop in its new engine, so there was grumbling at the lack [...]

You may have heard of a tiny show by the name of Game of Thrones ending after season 8 in 2018, and yet we still don’t know just how many episodes are left in the (presumably) shorter final season

Lost In EVE
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 January 2017, 6:30 pm
Back in the mists of time, when I first joined Z3R0 Return Mining Inc., the corp was primarily a PvE corp. To a certain extent we had teeth we would bare at times, but our primary activities revolved around running sites, sucking gas, or building things.
