Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 6:00 am

Despite mentally willing it not to happen, Monday morning has arrived. Tesla's shrunk its Supercharger monuments into a pocket-sized battery pack, Minecraft isn't coming to the Switch this year and Google's occasionally brilliant Lens search joins the Assistant app on Pixel phones.

Trüberbrook’s hand-crafted miniature world is a wonder
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 November 2017, 4:00 pm
That, up there, is a screenshot. It’s okay to stare. Now consider that it looks just as good in motion, if not better. After seeing some footage of the hand-crafted world of Trüberbrook in action, it’s easy to forget that this is a point-and-click adventure, rather than an Aardman-rivalling work of hyper-detailed miniature animation. But […]

Iconoclasts is nearly here – see it in action
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 November 2017, 12:00 pm
I’ve been writing about videogames going on about eight years now. For the majority of that time, I’ve had one eye firmly glued to Iconoclasts, an ambitious metroidvania by solo Swedish developer Joakim ‘Konjak’ Sandberg. It’s been in development over six years now, and is finally, tantalisingly close to release. Word is that Iconoclasts is […]

Guild Wars 2’s fourth season of new content begins soon
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 November 2017, 9:00 am
Guild Wars 2 might not be the talk of the town anymore, but the fast-paced MMO is still chugging along nicely, with a major new desert-themed expansion – Path of Fire – released just this September. It’s really rather good, bringing some satisfyingly weighty-feeling mounts to the game, making exploring feel fresh and fun again. For […]


Ben Heck's Xbox One X teardown
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 November 2017, 8:30 am

There's no greater feeling than tearing into the latest and greatest games console, cracking open the case, breaking the warranty and staring at its spinning, sparkly, electronic innards. This week, Ben takes apart the Xbox One X, comparing it to previous iterations while giving his usual quips over its design changes. Do you prefer Microsoft's mechanical and electrical design? Or are you a bigger fan of Sony's lineup? Let us know over on the element14 Community.




The Sunday Papers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 November 2017, 6:00 am
Sundays are for writing The Sunday Papers – mostly. Another fortnight has gone by since I last did so however, for which I can only apologise. Let’s me make it up to you with… links to articles about games. Yussef Cole at Unwinnable wrote about Cuphead and the racist legacy of the animation period it […]

Shadowhand stands to deliver on December 7th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 November 2017, 4:00 am
A long line of RPS writers (generations of em!) have been sharing their thoughts on Shadowhand, including an in-depth preview over the past couple years. It’s been fascinating watching Grey Alien’s game of card-based swashbucklery grow and evolve, and now the distinct and interestingly themed CCG has a release date. December 7th seems to have a bit […]


A Timely Anniversary in WoW
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 November 2017, 5:30 pm
We are in the anniversary zone in World of Warcraft, the official launch date being November 23rd.  But Blizzard spreads out the celebration for a while, so anniversary events and such are live in the game. But the re-usable boost token is really on


THQ Nordic buy the studio making Biomutant
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 November 2017, 4:00 pm
The cutesy Biomutant raised a few eyebrows after its announcement during Gamescom in August, enough that THQ Nordic have gone ahead and bought the studio making it. THQ Nordic were already publishing Biomutant, and now they own both the post-apocalyptic open-world action-RPG and developers Experiment 101 too.

Tip: Be careful with decimal points

So… This happened to me not long ago… Yeah… that hurt. This ate up all of my month’s trade profit. Thankfully, it was in a remote system, and not in Jita, or someone would have happily zero’d my wallet by selling me


Giant 'Minecraft' graphics upgrade delayed to 2018
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 November 2017, 3:50 pm

The Minecraft team had a bunch of news at their MineCon Earth convention, but the biggest news may be what's not happening. Mojang and Microsoft have delayed the launches of both the Super Duper Graphics Pack and cross-platform Switch multiplayer to sometime in 2018. They're not elaborating on the reasons behind the delay, but in both cases the features simply aren't finished. More information on the graphics delay is coming "soon," according to the creators.

Reigns: Her Majesty swipes right to December 7th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 November 2017, 12:00 pm
Nerial’s Reigns was such a lovely surprise. An utterly unique take on role-playing that worked a little like King of Dragon Pass mashed up with Tinder. Slipping gracefully into your role as King, a procession of courtly visitors sidled up on your PC or mobile phone screen, and you swiped left or right to answer their queries and […]

Mark Harris,
Wired

You may know Anthony Levandowski from being at the center of Waymo's lawsuit against Uber, but he's also the "Dean" or leader of a new religion of artificial intelligence. Wired takes a look at Way of the Future's doctrine, Levandowski's role and the quest to create the divine AI.




Touhou 16 shoots onto Steam
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 November 2017, 9:00 am
Touhou is a phenomenon. Despite niche appeal, this long-running series of bullet hell shmups has grown into an enormous shared franchise in Japan. It’s an indie scene unto itself, enabled by creator Zun giving his blessing to people making and selling fan works. Touhou boasts twice-yearly conventions dense with cosplayers, multiple official comic lines and fan-made works including […]
