Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 9:30 am
Let’s talk about Elder Scrolls Online’s new houses today, shall we? No, it’s not going to be a discussion of player housing, although that would be pretty cool. Instead, let’s examine Morrowind’s various house factions and what they might offer to the roaming adventurer. “Vvardenfell is a dangerous place for an Outlander such as yourself, and if you aren’t careful [...]

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 10:00 am
Guns are a pretty important part of Grand Theft Auto Online. If you’re going to play a hardened criminal, you probably want to have lots of things to point and shoot, after all. But why stop there? Why not go full-on into offering some high-tech military overhauls for even the most conventional vehicles around while also providing people with the [...]

A small Blizzard team might be working on a mobile Warcraft game
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 10:30 am
Ready to play some Warcraft on your mobile device? What are we saying, of course you are. Other than the various companion apps to World of Warcraft, and of course, Hearthstone, Blizzard hasn’t spent a lot of time bringing its franchises to the mobile space. This might be changing, however. Conversation is swirling around a job listing on Blizzard’s site [...]

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 11:00 am

'Far Cry 5' brings cult mayhem to Hope County February 27th
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 10:14 am

Far Cry 5 is going to be a little different than you might expect. The new announcement trailer paints a picture of pastoral life that lends itself surprisingly well to the franchise's familiar trappings: hunting, off-road vehicles, airplanes and guns. And it seemingly wraps it all together in a way that seems like a more grounded version of Grand Theft Auto V's depiction of a rural life of crime.

Truly intelligent enemies could change the face of gaming
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 10:30 am

Live, die, repeat -- the tagline for the 2014 science-fiction film Edge of Tomorrow -- describes its protagonist, who "respawned" every time he died in the real world. Critics noted that the conceit resembled the cyclical experience of playing a video game, in which dying resets a staged arrangement of obstacles. Often these are enemies, and the most common way they're surpassed is by the player violently dispatching them. Some games have kept this as cartoonish as Mario jumping on a Goomba's head, but others strive for vivid action and more-lifelike foes to pit the player against. But we know what enemies look like today -- how will we treat them in the games to come?

Put another way: How will violence in gaming change in the future?




No surprise: No Destiny 2 dedicated servers for PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 7:48 am
Destiny 2 [official site] will not have dedicated servers on PC, Bungie have confirmed. Some Destineers had hope that it might switch from the first game’s peer-to-peer networking model as the sci-fi FPS series makes its PC debut, given that dedicated servers tend to be less laggy and make cheating — which is far more […]

The Daily Grind: Are there any MMOs you think are just too late to start playing?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 8:00 am
I’ve been playing a lot of Ultima Online the past few weeks, but so many times I’ll be doing something that is objectively tedious (like taming or shuttling boxes of junk loot to the community trash box to turn in for points) and realize it and think to myself there is no freakin’ way that anyone who started playing MMOs [...]

'Pokémon Go' update gives cheaters lousy monsters
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 8:38 am

With a new update, Pokémon Go cheaters won't be banned, but instead thrown into a depressing purgatory. As spotted by Reddit's hardcore Pokémon Go site, Silph Road, Niantic is now "shadowbanning" cheaters by only letting them find humdrum monsters like Pidgey. In a statement, Niantic support said "people who violate the Pokémon Go Terms of Service may have their gameplay affected and may not be able to see all the Pokémon around them."

Time-bending shooter 'Superhot VR' arrives on HTC Vive
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 9:02 am

Superhot VR didn't start life as an Oculus Rift game, but it eventually made it to the VR headset. With dual-wielding guns and further tweaks to improve the title for a new interface, it turned into a short-but-sweet slice of virtual reality gaming. Now it's HTC Vive owners' turn to slow time, evade bullets, and return them in kind.

Oculus Rift officially supports the HTC Vive’s best feature
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2017, 9:27 am

The Oculus Rift has technically supported room-scale VR since the system's Touch motion controllers first went on sale last December. But purchasing an additional sensor didn't guarantee foolproof 3D tracking for greater immersion right off the bat. Oculus labelled the feature "experimental," alerting early adopters to the likelihood of bugs and other gremlins you might expect from in-development functionality. Six months and several updates later, however, Oculus has decided room-scale support is robust enough in its latest software release that it can ditch the beta tag and be called a bona fide Rift feature.
