Go behind the scenes of EVE Valkyrie’s carrier assault mode
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 6:00 pm
EVE Valkryie is aiming to create a high-octane virtual reality experience, and one of the strongest weapons in its arsenal to provide that is its relatively new carrier assault mode. In a new developer video, CCP talks about the creation and aim of this 20-minute mode. According to the studio, a side that’s losing doesn’t necessarily mean it will end [...]

The Ship: Remasted [official site] has added political figures including Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and I don’t know if I have enough tension-defusing “little bit of politics” Ben Elton riffing in me to survive much longer in the current political climate. Clinton and Trump can now lark around on a luxury cruise ship, trying […]


How To Build A PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 4:00 pm
The PC is brilliant. It’s brilliant for all the things you can do with it. But it’s also brilliant for being something you can build yourself. Yes, you at the back. You too can build a PC. Almost anyone can. And it’s not just easy. It’s fun. Once you get the knack, you won’t want […]

The French arrive to save the day in World of Tanks’ console editions
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 3:30 pm
Not every edition of World of Tanks is on equal footing, as content that’s in one might be on its way or missing entirely from another. For a while now, PC players have enjoyed driving around French tanks (ooh la la) while console players have raged against the machine. For those console jockeys who were dying to man one of [...]

Destiny's hinting at bigger roles and story for the Cryptarch and Xur

Star Citizen - Personal Update
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 2:48 pm
Not like posts have been fast and furious lately but they're going to slow down for a couple of weeks. I received an offer from a publisher to narrate another audiobook which I excitedly accepted. I've already done which went well. This whole excursion into voice over is a result of the positive feedback on Casual Citizen. So thanks for that! The first audiobook was contracted by an author who was self-publishing. Getting a foot in the door of a publisher is a whole other level of exciting - and stressful to some extent. Smile My house isn't setup properly to do this on a regular basis. Squeezing in recording when the house is empty is a juggling act. By the end of the year however, that should have resolved itself. Recording this next book is on a very tight timeline. All my free time will be occupied with recording...


Lick The Biomechanical Gristle Of FPS-Adventure Scorn
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 1:08 pm
Several games have waved H.R. Giger’s subliminal dicks and fannies in our faces, mostly through Alien connections, but in recent years I’ve seen few go for it quite as much as Scorn [official site]. It’s an upcoming mix of first-person shooter and adventure game, with all the biomechanical ribbing, pumping, throbbing, squicking, and glistening of […]


Wot I Think: Lego Star Wars – The Force Awakens
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 2:00 pm
In some ways Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens [official site] is a refreshing of the extraordinarily prolific Traveller’s Tales series. In other ways it’s fastidiously adherent to the tried-and-tested formula. In nearly all ways it’s a completely splendid game, but even I – the most enthusiastic proponent of this series – am beginning to […]

CSM 11 - September Summit
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 12:55 pm

The eleventh Council of Stellar Management will have its first summit September 12-15 at CCP HQ in Reykjavík, Iceland.

Usually we invite half the CSM to attend in person with the rest of the CSM joining remotely through video conferencing. For this summit, however, CCP has decided to invite all 14 council members to attend in person.

The CSM has gotten off to a strong start and the EVE developers are very excited to spend four days with all of them and getting their expert help in kicking off a great EVE winter!

CSM summits are a great tool for CCP and the CSM to discuss EVE and its future

Do you want to help the CSM prepare for the summit and take an active part in space democracy?

Here's information on how you can reach out to invidiual members.

....and you can always post topics and take part in discussions that are important to you in the Assembly Hall forum section.

Perfect Ten: MMO novel tie-ins
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 2:00 pm
When I was a kid and only slightly more nerdy than I am today, I used to read movie novelizations like crazy. I don’t know why, exactly, especially since I could have just watched the films themselves. I guess it was part of getting swept up with the transmedia hype of a good movie. I probably wore out my copy [...]

The game that makes Kinect worthwhile: 'Fru'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 2:00 pm

When Microsoft announced that it would start selling the Xbox One without the motion-sensing Kinect peripheral in June 2014, Mattia Traverso and his team at Through Games were shocked. They were in the middle of developing a Kinect-exclusive title, Fru, a platformer that used players' silhouettes to uncover hidden ledges and outlets in a Mario-inspired world. The Kinect wasn't off to a roaring start to begin with, but Through Games was down to take a gamble on an innovative idea. Besides, during the first few months of Fru's development, the Kinect was guaranteed to be sold with every new Xbox One. And then, suddenly, that potential was slashed.

"I'd be lying if I said the status of Kinect didn't affect us," Traverso tells me. "The surprise of the unbundling did hit our morale during production, and we had some doubts and worries about whether we would be financially viable at the end."




Have You Played… Microsoft Train Simulator?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. If you’re a fan of blistering bullet trains and beautiful Bo-Bo-Bos, the Train Simulator 2016 DLC list must make depressing reading. Today’s top rail sim seems to have no interest in the iron […]
