Overwatch launches 6v6 Competitive Elimination
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 2:38 pm
Blizzard have launched a 6v6 Competitive season for Overwatch‘s Elimination, the respawnless Arena mode where teams simply murder each other. What makes this interesting is that the season is running the Lockout variant of Elimination, where teams are blocked from picking characters they’ve already used to win a previous round. So sure, you might mash […]

Wot I Think: Lobotomy Corporation
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 3:00 pm
Lobotomy Corporation is an extremely simple game that’s also about as complicated as building a microwave from scratch. This supernatural research and containment sim straddles that treacherously thin line between brilliance and disaster, which is of course where all the most interesting games end up.

Re-enact car chase legend in GTA Online’s new mode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 4:07 pm
Grand Theft Auto Online‘s spring season of race-centric updates continues with off-brand Mini Coopers trying to outfox the fuzz. As absurdly aggressive as GTA’s police AI is notorious for being, nothing can quite compare with another human player out for blood, as you’ll see in The Vespucci Job, a three-on-one competitive car chase mode shamelessly inspired […]

My Thoughts after Fanfest

HUGE version of Fanfest board available for downloadAs many of you may remember my Fanfest experience last year was not a good one. In hindsight I probably shouldn't have attended, my life at the time was still pretty dark and that didn't help things. In

NIS America promise fast fixes for Ys VIII’s many issues
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 12:35 pm
After six months of delays to deal with technical issues, the PC version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana finally launched yesterday, albeit to less-than-great public reaction. Not because it’s a bad game – far from it – but because the PC version is plagued with bugs just not present in any other version of the […]

Street Fighter V’s Falke speaks softly, carries a big stick
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 1:37 pm
It still feels a little weird to be writing about Street Fighter for a PC site (I still remember that DOS port of Street Fighter 2), but Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition has carved out a nice, stable niche within the PC multiplayer scene. This week, Capcom properly unveiled military martial artist Falke, the third of […]

Pivross is a 3D picross game that still needs some work
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 2:00 pm
Pivross is a 3D picross game, which is – and someone will correct me if I’m wrong – the first of its type on PC. That is what piqued my interest. It is, unfortunately, not nearly as good as it needs to be. But then again, the first fifth is free, so you can find […]

Graphics card prices have been up in the clouds so long that the idea of them ever falling back down to something that doesn’t make us weep with despair seems almost as fanciful as the idea of earning more than six pence from the dreaded ongoing crypto-mining craze. They will, of course, come down at some point, but […]

Fanfest 2018: Answers

Prior to heading out to Fanfest, I came up with somequestions I hoped to find the answers to while in Iceland. I figured now that I’m back in the States, I should record the answers.1. What is coming in the summer expansion? I think I surprised some

I missed a few days last week on the northern front.  Over the weekend I jumped back to Delve for the first time since November to join in as a logi pilot in an FC tournament.  But the efforts to draw out and Darkness and their allies in the

'Mass Effect' failings forced BioWare to reevaluate how it makes games
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 1:18 pm

Developer BioWare is in a much different place today compared to where it was when producer Casey Hudson left. Sure, the studio cancelled its multiplayer game Shadow Realms, but no one knew much about it so it wasn't a huge blow in terms of public perception. As far as we knew, Mass Effect: Andromeda was still on track to be the awesome space-opera RPG fans had been waiting for since 2012 and everything was on the up and up. Now, of course, we know that wasn't the case. In a post on the BioWare blog, Hudson apologized for how that game turned out. Specifically, the scuttling of DLC that'd wrap up Andromeda's Quarian ark storyline.

Asus unveil new series of Arez AMD RX graphics cards
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 11:17 am
Brands. I love brands. Especially new ones, because they make things so much easier to understand among all the other brands. I am therefore incredibly excited about Asus’ new AREZ brand for their AMD Radeon RX graphics cards, because ROG, STRIX, TUF, Turbo, Dual, Expedition, Phoenix and Mining just weren’t brandy enough. This one, you see, is named after the Greek god […]

Occupy White Walls is an enthralling virtual gallery MMO
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 11:57 am
A while ago I took a stroll around the Zium Museum, a virtual gallery curated by Michael Berto. “There needs to be more stuff like this in videogames!”, said commenter ‘Quasiotter’. Quasio’s wish has been granted: Occupy White Walls is an upcoming MMO where you can build your own architecturally ambitious art gallery and showcase […]

The general manager of BioWare has said that not releasing story DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda and leaving much-wanted tales untold was “a defining moment in refocusing BioWare’s mission”, which will inform Anthem. Casey Hudson talked up the importance of story and characters in a ‘studio update’ blog post yesterday. Given that I’ve forgotten almost […]

'Yakuza 6' makes its belated appearance on PS4 today
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 11:17 am

After a few bumps in the road, Yakuza 6, the latest entry in Sega's long-running gangster series is finally available for purchase in the US. That means you can finally take a stroll down the game's fictional recreation of Tokyo's Kabukicho for yourself. The game was released in Japan last December, but given how story-heavy it is, it took awhile to localize all the voice and text for Western audiences. That's fine though -- early word is that the narrative is one of, if not, the best, in the franchise and a fitting send-off to protagonist Kazuma Kiryu.

Codename: Savage, the new 4x4km map in development for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, today is back in closed beta testing after handing out more keys over the weekend. Savage returns with several new areas, dynamic weather that continues to change throughout the round, and some interesting changes to the safe zone. Developers PUBG Corp say that Savage’s […]

EA exec says they won’t repeat loot box mistakes
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 8:25 am
Years of growing discontent over loot box monetisation in games came to a head with 2017’s Star Wars Battlefront II‘s lousy loot-based unlock progression system, raising such a stink that governments weighed in on arguments and EA disabled the microtransactions. “We can shy away from it and pretend like it didn’t happen,” Patrick Söderlund, EA’s […]

Assembly Required is an IKEA simulator
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 6:16 am
The navigational nightmare of an IKEA store is the stuff of legend uninspiring stand-up comics. But now it’s in a videogame too. Assembly Required is a parody sim about building a “furniture maze” designed to bamboozle your customers and weaken their their wallet fingers. You want to exhaust the shop’s visitors with a gauntlet of […]

'Kingdom Hearts III' will feature retro games within the game
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 3:40 am

Kingdom Hearts' long-awaited sequel comes with a surprise for anyone fond of those old LCD games from the '80s. At the first official Kingdom Hearts Union χ convention, Square Enix has premiered a new Kingdom Hearts III trailer showing retro style games within the game based on classic Disney cartoons and 1980's handheld consoles. You can start spending your time playing black-and-white virtual handhelds instead of the actual game once Sora gets the machine in Twilight Town. And, yes, you control a small black-and-white Sora!

What's on TV: 'Westworld,' 'God of War'

While the NBA and NHL playoffs are in full swing, the big events won't arrive until this weekend. On Friday we'll see the debut of God of War on PS4 and Nintendo Labo for Switch, before the season premiere of Westworld (no spoilers, please) on HBO Sunday night. Hulu streams The Looming Tower season finale and ABC calls it a wrap for Scandal. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
