Create religion for animals in the grindark Agatha Knife
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 11:18 am
A nine-year-old insomniac founds a new religion to convince animals that being eaten is the way to salvation and happiness in Agatha Knife [official site], an adventure game released yesterday. It’s the follow-up to MechaNika, a 2015 game about a child building her own mech – which our John quite enjoyed until its anticlimatic ending. […]

Xbox chief envisions a Netflix model for narrative games
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 11:24 am

Microsoft has just tipped its hand for what the company will show off at E3 in June. In a wide-ranging interview with The Guardian, Xbox chief Phil Spencer laid out his plans for the future of Xbox software. Since (mostly) fixing a majority of the problems the Xbox One hardware and system software has suffered through since 2013 with the Xbox One S and the Creator's Update for Xbox firmware, Spencer is focusing on the other problem Microsoft faces: its dearth of unique and compelling reasons to buy into the improved Xbox platform.

Tilt Brush adds Sketches for non-VR browsing
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 9:07 am
Tilt Brush [official site] was, hands down, one of the best things in VR last year, but given the VR platform means a smaller potential player-base it’s got that challenge of “How do I share any of this cool stuff with people not wearing VR headsets?” That’s where the new Sketches gallery comes in, letting […]


Wot I Think: Under Leaves
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 10:00 am
Sometimes tiny is just enough. Isn’t that a lovely thought? But more often it’s not quite enough, because it’s tiny. Under Leaves [official site] is a very pretty, very tiny little hidden objects game, and it’s not quite enough. … [visit site to read more]

'Mario Kart 8 Deluxe' on the Switch is basically perfect
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 10:00 am

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe looks set to be the Nintendo Switch's next must-have game. Regardless of the last Mario Kart title you played -- our experiences vary from Mario Kart 64 to DS iterations to the Wii U's original Mario Kart 8 -- Nintendo is aiming to make this the most definitive Mario racer yet. To start, there's 48 courses and 42 characters (including some Splatoon additions), as well as an upgraded 1080p mode when you're playing it docked from the Switch and some auto-steering help for younger gamers (or grown-ups who should know better). Those Joy-Con controllers double up as mini-controllers for two-player battles on the go, while a fully fleshed-out battle mode, with several arenas and play modes, form the biggest gameplay addition to the original that launched on the Wii U. Now, you probably knew most of that already, but how does it play? Four editors share their thoughts after a week of racing, while one colleague swears he won't buy the remake, regardless of how good it might be.




'Pictionary' comes to phones five years after 'Draw Something'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 10:21 am

It has taken its sweet time, but Pictionary (with all the appropriate copyright branding), has landed on iPhones, Android devices and, oh, even Amazon's app store. The game has two modes. For one, you're given plenty of time time to draw overelaborate masterpieces in a turn-based game, while in the other you're playing in a real-time, two-vs-two challenge, which is obviously why you downloaded the app, right? Categories cover people, places, animals, objects, actions and a spicy "Difficult" category, while you can pick and choose from pencils, crayons, paintbrushes and more to communicate that this is obviously an olive tree, why can't you see that? Stares and stern pen-tapping noises are currently are not supported.

Echolocation horror Perception coming in May
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 7:42 am
Perception [official site], the first-person spookhouse horror starring a woman who sees with Daredevil-style echolocation, now has a release date: May 30th. We’ll get to explore an abandoned mansion, investigating something spooky which has lurked for generations, by making noises which send out soundwaves we can magically convert to eerie images. Oh, and of course […]


The Flare Path: Maghrebian Musings
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 8:00 am
Graviteam’s reputation for martial eccentricity is under threat. Their next standalone dual-layer wargame isn’t set in a cobwebby corner of the Eastern Front. It doesn’t simulate an operation in the Bangladesh Liberation War or the Western Sahara Conflict. Manned exclusively by German and US personnel, the monikered-with-a-mallet Tank Warfare: Tunisia 1943 (out on Monday, price TBA) […]


Little Nightmares has crept onto PC to creep you out
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 5:46 am
“I’ve loved almost every minute of it,” our Adam said about Little Nightmares [official site] last week. Only you had no way to play it then, as it wasn’t out, so all you could do was stare at it through the shop window, face pressed up against the glass. Oh, how you longed to puzzle-o-sneak-a-platform […]


Best PC gaming deals of the week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 6:00 am
Somehow, through sheer force of will, we’ve collectively managed to make it until the end of April. That means Prey is out next week and I can barely contain myself. It might not be as ‘gritty’ or ‘visceral’ as some other titles up there but I’ll take my Bioshock influenced horror games gladly. Anyways, we’ve […]


Subnautica update sounds the fire alarm
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 6:40 am
Ooooh! A Subnautica [official site] update! This one is called Silent Running and yet the trailer is VERY LOUD. I think the silent bit only applies to the Cyclops (a big underwater craft) which you can now run silently if you want to sneak around. Sneaking is now important because of the underwater jerks trying […]

The next generation of VR enhancements coming to HTC Vive
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 9:13 pm

The first year of consumer virtual reality has been exciting, to be sure, but ask anybody in the industry, and they'll tell you that it's only the beginning. Engineers and developers are always chasing the next big thing in VR technology: wireless headsets, better walking simulation systems, eye-tracking and more. It's a long road to getting that better VR experience, but there's tons of room to grow -- and Vive's Virtual Reality Venture Capital Alliance is one group trying to help that happen. We stopped by the VRCA's fourth member meeting to see how the next generation of VR is coming along, and some of it is closer than you might think.
