Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2017, 2:00 pm
Hello. This is Spawn Point, a new not-quite-regular feature in which we take a genre, series or other facet of gaming culture, and try to convince you to give it a shot. It might be those hero shooters you’ve always wanted to get into, or that terrifying space game played by thousands of jerks. We’ll […]

'PUBG’ studio isn't happy about ‘Fornite: Battle Royale’
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2017, 1:38 pm

Epic Games' cartoony horde game Fortnite is still in Steam Early Access, but the studio recently announced that a free-to-play version of the game would come out for free next week... and it looks a lot like another really popular game. Fortnite: Battle Royale's gameplay doesn't just closely resemble PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds: Epic admitted it inspired their new title while promoting its game. Bluehole, the studio behind PUBG, is none too happy, and even stated in a press release that it's considering 'further action.'

Have You Played… No Man’s Sky?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2017, 10:34 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. No Man’s Sky has changed a great deal since the initial release, switching from a pure, lonely exploration experience to a game with base building, harder survival-based modes, rudimentary multiplayer and a lot more. I still […]

Slightly Mad Studios flashed the starting lights for their racing game Project CARS 2 [official site] yesterday, sending it roaring into the night and onto Steam.

The PUBG devs are calling out Fortnite: Battle Royale as a clone - this could get messy
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2017, 10:39 am
Cloning large parts of competitors' games is not at all unusual in this industry, and it typically passes without (public) comment


'Destiny 2' factions will reward you with powerful discount weapons
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2017, 11:21 am

If you've been playing Destiny 2 for a while, you probably know the fate of "the city". What's set to follow -- as I try not to spoil anything-- is the return of factions. We all love some good in-game tribal battles, and the shooter's Faction rallies will kick things off on September 26, at the decidedly precise hour of 2AM PT / 5AM ET / 9AM BST -- with some nice rewards for the faction that comes out on top.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adding VW campervan for lads on tour
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2017, 10:15 am
If you had any doubt about the near-fact that Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds [official site] is about lads larking around on a weekend jolly which turns deadly, they will now be quashed by the revelation that it’s adding a vintage Volkswagen Kombi campervan as a driveable vehicle. Round up the lads, fill a level 3 backpack with […]

One Gamer Fund heard you liked video-game charities
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2017, 9:00 am

It's an exciting time to be Seven Siegel. Siegel is the executive director of Global Game Jam, the world's largest 48-hour hackathon, but more important, he's a former game developer with an MBA in nonprofit management. This makes him particularly suited to work in an emerging niche market blending philanthropy with cutting-edge technology: video game charities.

There are dozens of charities in the video-game industry, including heavy hitters like the Gamers Outreach Foundation, which puts gaming equipment in children's hospitals around the nation; AbleGamers, which helps people with disabilities play their favorite titles; and Take This, which advocates for mental-health awareness in the gaming industry. And there are more community-led nonprofits popping up all the time.

"We're seeing it on the individual level with Desert Bus for Hope, with the Mario marathon, with Awesome Games Done Quick," Siegel says. "These are all charity events that aren't big industry things. These are all people getting together with their love of games and making some good happen."
