Next Week
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 February 2016, 5:24 pm
The CSM Summit is next week. It has been a frustrating year so far. An anger making one in truth. It is a muddled mess and it has become harder and harder to sort out what can be said and what cannot yet be said and what shouldn't be said and what should.


Firefall updates players on missing items following patch 1.6
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 February 2016, 5:00 pm
The most recent Firefall patch had some significant issues when it first went live, but those issues are still being sorted out now. Players were not properly compensated for the modules that they had before the major system update, and the first fix turned out to not work as intended. So the team is trying again, bringing up the pre-maintenance [...]

Enterprising rogues will be pursuing six new skills once The Elder Scrolls Online’s Thieves Guild DLC launches next month: Finders Keepers for spotting treasures, Swiftly Forgotten for being inconspicuous, Haggling for making bank, Timely Escape for getting away, Veil of Shadows for sneaking around, and our favorite, Clemency, for shmoozing the guards.

The Witness And The Joy Of Note-Taking

Inspired by recent experiences with The Witness’ [official site] puzzles, Robert Zak has been reminiscing about the art of note-taking while playing games.

Hello friends, and welcome to week two of the February series of Choose My Adventure. For those of you who are just tuning in, this month I’m diving headlong into the mystical martial-arts adventure of NCSoft’s Blade & Soul.

Hyperspace Beacon: SWTOR Knights of the Fallen Empire Chapter 10 impressions
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 February 2016, 2:00 pm
I can’t lie: The fact that BioWare took nearly seven hours longer to launch the next chapter of Star Wars: The Old Republic than it had promised tainted my impression of what was to come. I understand the need to separate the experience of the actual launch of the content from the content itself. But I cannot help but wonder [...]

Could one agreement be what’s preventing localization of Phantasy Star Online 2?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 February 2016, 2:35 pm
We’ve made our fair share of jokes about Phantasy Star Online 2 over here at Massively Overpowered, because how could we not? The game was happily promoted by Sega with no localization date announced, then it launched in Japan, and the company has subsequently refused to say anything about whether or not it’ll ever be released in the US. It [...]

Shooter classic 'Descent' gets a second crowdfunded revival
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 February 2016, 2:41 pm

Apparently, there are a lot of gamers (and game developers) who are still fond of Descent's mind-breaking, 6-degrees-of-freedom shooting action. Just months after the success of Descent: Underground, the aptly-named Revival Productions is crowdfunding its own take on the formula, Overload. It doesn't have the same name as the zero-G combat classic, but there's arguably a stronger pedigree -- co-founders Mike Kulas and Matt Toschlog were instrumental to making the earliest Descent games, and other higher-ups built Descent 3. They remember the mechanics and level design that made the original a cult hit, and they're hoping to preserve that vibe while introducing modern technology.

Valve's VR technology now works with the Unity game engine
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 February 2016, 3:23 pm

For many gaming platforms, the litmus test these days is whether or not they get official support in Unity's game engine -- land that and many developers (and by extension, gamers) are likely to give them a closer look. Valve just got a big credibility boost, then, as Unity is introducing native SteamVR support. If a virtual reality game runs on Unity's seemingly ubiquitous code, it's that much more likely to work with the HTC Vive and other SteamVR-friendly headsets. And much like the Unreal Engine, teams can edit in VR if they want to know what a scene will look like for players.

An XCOM 2 Diary: The Wizened + The Doomed, Day 1
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 February 2016, 12:00 pm
It’s tradition now: when an XCOM game comes out, you recreate your friends, colleagues and record-collection-stealing former lovers then send them out to be murdered by aliens. Basically, it’s the Sims with Sectoids rather than sex. So let’s do it again: an XCOM 2 [official site] Iron Man/perma-death diary starring the staff of RPS, who […]
