There are questions that just have to be asked: Can Superman outrun The Flash? Is Jar Jar Binks really that annoying? Who would win in a fight between the three movie Spider-Men? Thankfully, thanks to Tom Holland, we (kinda) have the answer to that third one

Industry and me
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 4:18 am
It’s been ages since I thought about doing industry. The reason for this is because last time I did it, it started to become too much of a hassle for profits that kept on going down. I used to copy blueprints, invent them into T2 bpc’s and


NPD estimates video game industry raked in $30.4 billion in 2016
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 11:56 pm

The video game industry tracker NPD Group has occasional releases throughout the year, tallying up things from the month's top-selling games to console vs. console sales to how many NES Classic Editions flew off the shelves back in November. But it's the annual revenue generation that draws real attention as a loose report card for the industry, and last year's has just come out. In 2016, NPD estimates that consumers spent $30.4 billion on games and accessories, which is a modest $200 million more than in 2015.

Google's VR art app is open source and ready to get weird
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 9:26 pm
Google's Tilt Brush is capable of some pretty impressive results. But what if those 3D paintings and projects you made while strapped into virtual reality could escape into the real world? That's the idea behind the open-source Tilt Brush Toolkit, available now on GitHub.

EVE Online starts the process of electing its next player council
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 7:00 pm
When the winter is coldest on the coast of Iceland, CCP lugs out its 20-foot wooden alpine horn and blows a signal that can be heard across the Atlantic. The sound awakens all EVE Online players from their hibernation and lets them know that it is time once again to form the next Council of Stellar Management. Starting in February, [...]

Massively Overthinking: The future of a global MMORPG industry
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 8:00 pm
Massively OP Patron Duane's done the math on what is becoming, more and more, a truly global MMORPG industry. His question for Overthinking this week is a simple one: "Devs in over 27 countries have released MMOs as of 2017. What country which is NOT your own would most excite you with a future MMO release?" Now this is an [...]

'Injustice 2' beta registration opens for future brawls
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 7:59 pm

Developer NetherRealm Studios' games are as well known for their over-the-top action as much as their shaky online multiplayer. It looks like the team has taken the latter to heart because its upcoming DC Comics fighter Injustice 2 will have a beta test prior to releasing on May 16th. A registration form is live right this moment and will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Netflix Originals and Void’s Nintendo Switch Corner
In this episode:
  • Netflix Originals tend to keep our attention more than most other TV shows. For the most part, network TV doesn’t interest us, and we binge Netflix Originals and look forward to them all year long. The only other network putting out content as good as some of these Netflix Originals is HBO.  And even that is only a few shows like West World and Game of Thrones.
  • Hulu and Amazon have original shows they produce, too, and they’re fantastic as well. But they’re few and far between compared to Netflix. Beej loves Casual on Hulu and Alpha House on Amazon. THere are others, too, that you should check out like 11-22-63 and The Man in the High Castle.
  • Are the non-streaming networks are in trouble? We think so. Netflix is quadrupling their content this year, putting an additional $6 Billion for new content in 2017--including over 600 hours of new Netflix Originals. Just as an example, The Crown was picked up for a full run of 6 seasons (10 episodes per seasons) with each episode averaging a budget of $2.5 Million. So yeah. They’re pretty confident in themselves.
Shows we discuss:
  • Netflix MCU: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and the upcoming Defenders, Iron Fist, and Punisher (plus new seasons of the existing shows).
  • Terrace House
  • Comedy Specials
  • Kimmy Schmidt
  • Fuller House
  • Chef’s Table
  • Stranger Things
  • Orange is the New Black
  • The Crown
  • House of Cards
  • Marco Polo
  • Sense8
  • Bojack Horseman
  • Master of None
  • Grace and Frankie
  • THERE ARE SO MANY MORE THAT WE JUST DIDN’T HAVE TIME FOR
Void’s Nintendo Switch Corner!
  • $300 in the US with console, dock, joycons, cables, and joycon battery base controller pak thingy.
  • Neon coloring… more colors later probably. Dual color...kind of ugly.
  • Battery life 2.5 to 6.5 hours depending on game / settings
  • Joycons look potentially over-engineered.  Why does Nintendo always need a new gimmick?  How much did this add to the price? $80 for a pair.
  • Dock is $90.  Expensive peripherals all around.  $70 pro controller. Maybe just buy a second Switch instead?
  • Weird Online Stuff (Nintendo being Nintendo)
  • Free for a limited time
  • Launch Games
  • 1, 2, Switch
  • Launch “Window” games
  • Has Been Heroes (March 2017)
  • I pre-ordered. I knew I was going to get this. I had the money put aside. I’m excited.  I also totally understand why most people would wait. My criteria is generally 2 games I want to play on day 1. For me the winners here are Zelda, 1 2 Switch (though I won’t buy it), Has Been Heroes, and Arms.
  • Longer term I know I’ll pick up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and Super Mario Odyssey.

White Wolf bringing Werewolf: The Apocalypse to PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 4:37 pm
When Paradox bought World of Darkness creators/publishers White Wolf back in 2015, I immediately started thinking of the games they’d make. A Vampire: The Masquerade grand strategy game along with a sequel to RPS favourite Bloodlines perhaps? Or how about those Werewolves? Well, today White Wolf have announced a Werewolf: The Apocalypse game, but it’s […]

Pokémon Go made $950 million in 2016, but players aren't walking as much
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 6:00 pm
There's no doubt that last year was phenomenal for Pokémon Go, as the popular app racked up an astounding $950 million in revenue by the end of 2016. A study by App Annie credited Pokémon Go's success to the combination of simple mechanics, social features, AR gameplay, and the popularity of the Pokémon franchise. "To put Pokémon Go’s success in a [...]

A single image of the Nintendo Switch tells us three things
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 4:34 pm

Nintendo has shown precious little of the Switch's user interface so far -- just a few seconds teasing the console's menu during last week's live stream and a fleeting glance during a Treehouse livestream. Apart from showing off the general layout and confirming the presence of the Nintendo eShop, Nintendo's tease didn't tell us much. Now, an image Tweeted out by indie developer Nicalis tell us a lot more: The Switch my have multiple users, menu themes and a couple of unannounced games.




Wot I Think: Ittle Dew 2

AMD’s Ryzen: A gaming CPU worth waiting for?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 4:00 pm
Something good is about to happen. I’m fairly sure of that. RPS isn’t exactly hardware rumour central, of course. There’s plenty of that elsewhere and, frankly, I can’t compete. But after the downbeat tone of my recent Intel Kaby Lake coverage, I reckon it would be remiss not to balance things out with a quick […]


Director of Traffic and Syriana to film The Division
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 January 2017, 4:06 pm
“Do not march on Moscow,” said Field Marshal Montgomery, “and do not make a videogame movie.” Wise words that continue to be ignored by the titans of this ridiculous industry. Ubisoft, as you might have heard, aren’t marching on the Kremlin but they are making another videogame movie, this time based on Tom Clancy’s The […]

The game will be offline all afternoon as it patches in what Gazillion is calling its "biggest update ever."
