Realpolitiks is a 21st century grand strategy game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:12 am
The trailer for Realpolitiks [official site] is spectacular, in the way that someone stepping on a rake and then falling into a pond is a spectacle. The game itself looks like one of those maps and graphs things that I love, with its focus on politics in the modern world, but the trailer doesn’t spend […]

ModDB’s Mod of the Year awards voting is open
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:26 am
Mods used to be my thing. I worked on mods, made mods, wrote about mods, spent all my time trawling terrible personal websites for more mods. Now my engagement with them extends no further than browsing the occasional Steam Workshop and poking around at ModDB. The latter is now running their annual Mod of the […]

Explore a glitchworld in Deios II: Deidia, now out
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:36 am
A few months back, I was pleased and puzzled wandering the glitchy caverns of Deios II: Deidia [Itch page] in a demo. It’s a beautiful explore-o-puzzle-platformer with dramatic landscapes, pleasant noises, and, ah, something about being inside a computer and manipulating glitches that I didn’t quite grasp because I’m a dolt. If you’re less foolish […]

Hunger Dungeon is a pixel art MOBA, out now
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:58 am
It doesn’t matter how many guides to League of Legends and Dota 2 I read, or how helpful the commentary supposedly is, I can’t fathom what’s happening most of the time when spectating fights in those games. All the wizards are darting about casting swoosh effects and rays of light and an offscreen crowd is […]

Interview: ArcheAge 3.0 Revelation, fresh start servers, and the cash shop
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 9:00 am
ArcheAge’s big new 3.0 update is launching this week, and some big changes are happening with Revelation. And with big changes come questions, questions about exactly what to expect when the servers come back up… including when the servers will come back up! We already learned quite a bit about the new races and regions at DragonCon. To help answer the [...]

Elite Dangerous is coming to the PlayStation 4 — and while it is not bringing its lost colon, it’s bringing everything else. Frontier CEO David Braben announced the news early this morning. “It is great to come to PlayStation.

The Daily Grind: What cosmetic options for your characters does your favorite MMORPG lack?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:00 am
You know what games need? Piercings. More piercings in general. Why can I not have any piercings beyond my ears in Final Fantasy XIV? Why is it that I only have a handful of piercing options in World of Warcraft? I’m not saying every character needs them, but they’re a great way to add visual flair to a character. But [...]

Doom adds AI bots and demonic ballsport
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 6:00 am
From the author who brought you such cutting insights as “Whaaat? id Software released a game without deathmatch?” comes the shocking follow-up “Huuuh? It didn’t have bots either?” Doom [official site] now has bots, which I suppose means it hasn’t had bots the past seven months. ‘Update 5’ launched yesterday afternoon, boshing in AI bots […]

HEVN is a place off-Earth in this immersive sim
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 6:08 am
I spend a lot of my time wandering around space stations and off-world colonies. They’re usually deserted, save for some infected former-people or an AI with some disturbing ideas about just what it should do with that sentience it found between the sofa cushions of its code. This year, I particularly enjoyed Event[0]‘s unusual take […]

Ever wondered what is the bloodiest show on TV? Which TV show has killed without prejudice, shuffling people off to their mortal coil faster than you can say ‘Hey, who was that guy?’ Well, obviously The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones top the list

Dean Hall on VR development: “There’s no money in it”

Dean “Rocket” Hall, the force behind DayZ and more recently his own studio, RocketWerkz, has made some fairly strong comments about the perils of VR development, the hostility of the tech’s community, and his belief that profitability is extremely unrealistic for games developed for the host of new goggles. His own studio, he says, is […]

Fans set to launch new classic World of Warcraft server this month
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 2:21 am

At the end of August, Blizzard released Legion, the sixth expansion for its long-standing fantasy MMO World of Warcraft. One contingent of the game's fans probably didn't buy it: The 800,000-strong players who maintained an expansion-free "vanilla" version of the game on their own server, Nostalrius, until the megastudio shut it down last April. Some hope remained while Blizzard pondered whether to launch their own "pristine" servers without expansion content or third-party add-ons. But fans tired of waiting for a studio-blessed Legacy iteration of the game have once again created their own server, Elysium, which is set to go live on December 19th.

Nintendo Switch makes its live TV debut on 'The Tonight Show'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 12:52 am

After you check out our discussion with Nintendo's president Reggie Fils-Aime, you can get a good look at the new Switch console in operation () on the Tonight Show stage. Reggie and host Jimmy Fallon played the yet-to-be-released console, taking a trip through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild showing off its ability to go portable with the press of a button. Additionally, after previewing a bit of Super Mario Run action, Reggie announced that starting today, you can visit Apple Stores worldwide and try out a demo version before the game launches December 15th.

There's not a lot of new information if you've been paying attention, but it does give a good idea of what using a Switch will be like when it ships in March. As an extra bonus, check out the second video to see Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto playing the game's theme song along with The Roots.

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime explains why it's time to go mobile
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 12:30 am

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has garnered a reputation for being a larger-than-life character, whether he's onstage presenting his company's latest or getting ready for a one-on-one interview. He's playing Super Mario Run on an iPad mini when our meeting begins, as if he just can't stop to focus on the more mundane task at hand. "I'm gonna put this down now," he says as we get started. "I had a great run going, too."

'Super Mario Run' is just as much fun as we'd hoped
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 12:30 am

It's no stretch to say that Super Mario Run is one of the most notable mobile games in years. It's Nintendo's first real smartphone game and one of the only instances in which the company has developed a Mario game for non-Nintendo hardware. It's the first of several mobile titles planned and could mark the start of a major business shift for Nintendo. But let's put aside all these heady concerns about what Super Mario Run means for the company and answer the most important question: Is the game fun?
