Brigitte shield-bashes onto the Overwatch’s live servers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 6:15 pm
Tis’ the season for the smashing of fools. Swedish mecha-knight Brigitte, daughter of Torbjorn and squire to Teutonic man-missile Reinhardt has officially joined the fray, after a brief stint on Overwatch‘s public test server. If you managed to miss out on her initial lore-filled reveal, you can check it out here, but here’s the long […]

Four days in the fields of Pure Farming 2018
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 3:00 pm
I have been lied to. The letter from my late grandfather which arrived at my desk spoke of freedom. It spoke of an alternative from the daily grind of the city life, of charming adventures, of hard work rewarded and of peace of mind. An abandoned farm just for me! As I packed my luggage, […]

CD Projekt Red’s new studio helping on Cyberpunk 2077
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 3:07 pm
CD Projekt Red, the makers of those wonderful Witcher games, today announced they have a new studio elsewhere in Poland to “bolster development” of Cyberpunk 2077. No, this announcement contains no new information on Cyberpunk – but aren’t you glad to hear Red have more people helping? I can’t think of many upcoming games I’m […]

Vivendi officially abandons their Ubisoft takeover plans
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 3:42 pm
We can at least breathe a small sigh of relief today. For the first time in what seems like an age, two already-massive corporate entities have failed to become one, a move that would surely crush yet more fragile human hopes and dreams between their colliding financial bodies. We’ve previously covered Vivendi’s increasingly aggressive attempt […]

Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 2:48 pm

As is custom for Blizzard, last month the company dropped a couple hints on Overwatch's Twitter account before announcing a new hero and immediately adding her to the PTR. Today, the front-line battle healer Brigitte has been added to the game across all platforms.

Attack On Titan 2 swings into the English language
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 12:48 pm
Grab your grappling hook and refill your knife blades: Attack On Titan 2 is now out in English. The sequel to 2016’s game about warteens swinging around giants to stab them in the neck, which is based on an anime and manga, has kinda been out on PC since last week – but only in […]

Sea of Thieves is fun until you meet other pirates
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 1:00 pm
“More pirates!” I shouted at my matey, who we’ll call Andy because that’s his name. We’d both cleared our schedules so we could enjoy a leisurely cruise across Sea of Thieves’s striking azure ocean. This was our first sight of other players, and we were excited to get our instruments out and expand the size […]

Dad Goku & Jumbo Goku join Dragon Ball FighterZ soon
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 1:27 pm
The problem with Dragon Ball is that there are just too many Gokus. Diet Goku, Regular Goku, Blueberry Goku, Goku Black and probably more besides – a little bit silly for one Goku and his immediate family to make up half the dang cast. Not a trend that’ll be ending soon either, at least according […]

Lumines Remastered grooving to PC in May
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 1:36 pm
Rad rhythm puzzler Lumines is being fancied up for a re-release, coming back to PC in May as Lumines Remastered. It’s a tile-matching puzzle game, right, about dropping two-tone squares down to connect like colours and score big points – driven by a soundtrack which clears matches across the field in time to bars of […]

HDR for PC games is a hot mess (but it’s nice when it works)
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 2:00 pm
A few of the things I have had to do in order to get a workable version of HDR (also known as high dynamic range), the new-ish display technology that significantly ramps up brightness, darkness and vibrancy, on my PC (not including the acquisition of a fancy monitor): – Try four different display cables – […]

The March update for EVE Online is upon us today, and with it comes a pretty long list of updates and changes. Where do I even start?  The list this month is so long! For openers, there is a new event in The Agency called The Hunt. This seems to fall

Nintendo Switch's 2018 indie roster is looking strong
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 1:32 pm

A year ago, Nintendo followed the launch of the Switch with a bold proclamation: The console would get a new indie game every week. This signaled a new era and approach to welcome third-party games, which previous Nintendo systems had failed to court well. Today, it seems like indie titles are lining up to jump on the Switch -- and the company announced a dozen new and remastered games will be headed to the console this year.

Skywalker Sound and the challenges of making audio for VR films
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 2:15 pm

Lauded Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu, best known for his work on movies such as Birdman and The Revenant, last year nabbed a "special" Oscar award for his VR exhibition Carne y Arena. The virtual reality project, dubbed Flesh and Sand in English, takes viewers into a world where they can experience what it's like to be an immigrant trying to cross a border. As much as visuals were important to tell this story, one of Iñárritu's focus was to also to create the most immersive sounds -- which can be complicated when going from traditional film to a completely new medium like VR.

Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 2:28 pm

The Banner Saga 3 is coming out this summer, and you'll be able to play it on your Nintendo Switch. The cartoony, crowd-funded, Norse-themed tactical RPG series' conclusion will be released on Nintendo's hybrid portable/home console this summer the same time as PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, according to developer Stoic.

Final Fantasy XV’s Noctis bowls into Tekken 7 today

While resident buttonmasher Brendan is busy in San Francisco, it falls to me to tell you that Final Fantasy XV protagonist Noctis Lucis Caelum today arrived in Tekken 7 as the latest DLC character. “Noctis’s occupation is listed as: formally opening swimming pools and shopping centres,” Brendan might say, with that air of authority he […]

Have you played… Rise of the Tomb Raider?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 11:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. A very good game wearing the skin of not a very good game. Peel that skin away, or at least try to ignore it, and find the golden bones underneath. Alternatively, just play the survival mode […]

More than 60 new apps support Android's AR platform
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 12:00 pm

Now that Android's ARCore platform is a practical reality, augmented reality apps are coming out of the woodwork. Google has announced that over 60 ARCore-capable apps are launching on the Play Store this week, many of them games arriving in sync with the Game Developers Conference. Some have them have already arrived, including virtual pet game My Tamagotchi Forever launched on March 15th. It's also using the timing to highlight practical apps like Pottery Barn's 3D Room View and eBay's Which Box (which tells you how large a box you need to ship an item). One of the new apps even comes from Google itself -- it's launching an experiment.

As my last remaining reader knows, I moved to a new corp “Anomalous Existence” and am happy as a clam in this outfit. They are small enough to know all the guys and gals but big enough that stuff goes down all the time.  Unfortunately

You won't beat 'A Way Out' without help from a friend
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 March 2018, 10:30 am

A Way Out from Hazelight games is a dinosaur of a game and I mean that as a compliment. Set in the 1970s, A Way Out follows a pair of convicts -- Vincent, who is serving time for embezzlement and Leo, a hardened jewel thief -- as they escape from a fictional California prison, go on the lamb and attempt to rebuild their lives. But the disco era isn't the game's only throwback, the gameplay itself demands a decidedly old-school method of play: in-person co-op.
