Zone of the Enders 2’s mech action coming to PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 9:59 am
A revamped re-release of 2003 mech shooter sequel Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner is coming to PC next year, Konami announced today. Bearing the unwieldy name Anubis Zone of the Enders: Mars [official site], it’ll come remastered with improved prettiness and optional support for VR cybergoggles. Zone of the Enders is a curious […]


Have You Played… Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I’ve a love/not-hate-but-something-gentler-in-the-general-ballpark-of-disappointment relationship with Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture, The Chinese Room’s follow-up to Dear Esther.


The Agency Warzone Extraction Event in EVE Online
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 11:15 am
CCP has a new PvE event up in EVE Online starting today.  Part of the framework of The Agency, this one is called Warzone Extraction and is meant, in part, to draw attention to the EVE Valkyrie Warzone expansion coming later this month. As is the


Here's everything from PlayStation Japan's 2017 press event!
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 9:21 am

As is tradition, PlayStation kicked off Tokyo Game Show by showcasing most of its announcements days before the full show actually starts. Besides a bunch of limited-edition PS4 and PS4 Pros of varying levels of desirability, we had some remakes, a new game or two, and more Monster Hunter. Of course. Here's the best trailers from the showcase earlier today.




‘Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier’ multiplayer will test friendships
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 9:40 am

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier is an entirely choice-based game. There are no real heroes or villains among the humans and apes you play as, and no right or wrong paths to take towards the conclusion of this choose your own adventure. Atypical of storytelling games, though, there's a multiplayer element that's almost meta. Not only do you have to resolve conflicts within the game, you also have to do it within your own living room, debating, persuading and occasionally forcing other players to accept your point of view to move the narrative forward.




Diving into Divinity Original Sin 2
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 8:51 am
I own the original game but I never actually completed it because I ended up getting to a point I just found too frustrating. Plus I almost never (ever) finish a game. Why stop...


Clickuorice Allsorts: Cute Subnautica Lego pitches

A reader sent me some links to really well-done Subnautica Lego pitches on the Lego Ideas forum so I wanted to share them! Here’s Survivors of the Degasi and Exploring the Safe Shallows. The Lego Ideas forum lets people pitch ideas for sets that they want Lego to convert into real products. You need 10,000 […]


Atomega: Ubisoft’s FPS makes everyone equal, even when they’re not
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 7:00 am
I am an ambulatory shoebox. Nearby, King Kong’s shooting a velociraptor. Fire-spitting lizards slither through tunnels around their feet. Somewhere on the far horizon, a disintegrating god the size of a space station hurls lethal judgement down upon us all. Every one of these entities is a player in Ubisoft’s new online shooter Atomega [official […]


Space station sim enters a Stable Orbit next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 7:42 am
I enjoyed the starry skies and floating tranquillity of space station sim Stable Orbit [official site], even if my decisions led to the deaths of multiple astronauts. The game was a bit thin on features when I last played, like a clinically clean version of Kerbal Space Program, but new things have been added in […]


Think of the Children’s co-op parenting hits open beta
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 8:34 am
Around Christmas 2015, former Senior Scottish Correspondent Cara Ellison and I got smashed and played Who’s Your Daddy while everyone else was at the office party. It’s a competitive multiplayer game recreating the battle of wits between a dad and a baby set upon causing itself grievous harm, a struggle to keep the little idiot […]

Square Enix announce mech game Left Alive
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 5:24 am
You can learn a lot about someone from their response to a Christmas disaster. When tragedy struck snowy New York in Tom Clancy’s The Division, Ubisoft activated sleeper agents to shoot bad men. A trite and telling reaction. When Mr. Bean got his head stuck in the Christmas turkey, he wrapped a towel round it […]


GOG’s new sale is kind of a Big Deal
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 6:31 am
Despite having hosted a range of discounts each and every week of the year so far, GOG clearly feels like it’s never enough. As of yesterday, the site launched the Big Deal Sale, offering over 200 titles with discounts of up to 90%. Besides the on-the-nose title of the sale itself, there are a number […]


Sony’s traditional pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference is normally enough to pique the interest of hardcore PS4 fans and casual gamers alike, and this year is no different

Capcom just released a holy trifecta of announcements for Monster Hunter World, including a release date


US Navy will use Xbox controllers to steer submarine periscopes
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 5:22 am

The Pentagon might have to buy Xbox controllers en masse in the future if the military ends up using them to control its laser weapons and other equipment. In fact, the US Navy will begin stocking its modernized Virginia-class submarines with them, starting with the USS Colorado that's expected to be commissioned in November. Sailors aboard the high-tech submarine will use the Xbox controller to maneuver its periscope. See, unlike periscopes in movies, wherein a single person has to peer through an eyepiece, the high-tech version of the instrument uses high-resolution cameras and displays images on big screens.

The Morning After: Tuesday, September 19th 2017

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

We have some bad news from Toys 'R' Us, CCleaner and Equifax, but at least Galaxy S8 owners can disable the Bixby button, and Jerry Seinfeld's latest stand-up is available on Netflix.




Niantic's next AR game after ‘Pokémon Go’ may use audio cues
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 3:24 am

Niantic is keen to prove that it's no one-trick pony. The company that brought augmented reality mobile gaming to the masses with Pokémon Go is dropping some interesting tidbits about its followup. The title will integrate audio prompts into its AR gameplay experience, the company's CTO Phil Keslin told TechCrunch. Instead of asking people to hold their phone up while interacting with the game, Keslin says the developer is seeking a more natural alternative. And, it seems audio cues could be the key to the Pokémon Go successor.

'Neko Atsume' is coming to PlayStation VR in 2018
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 3:58 am

Neko Atsume was the smartphone hit where you collected and fed cats. That was... mostly it. It also took over the lives of several of my friends, and was huge enough to warrant a movie spin-off in Japan. Apt, then, that Tokyo Game Show is where PlayStation Japan President Atsushi Morita announced a virtual reality version of the cat... feeding.. sim (?), with no more information beyond a 2018 release date on PSVR. But, if I get to role-play as cats, then consider me intrigued.




'Zone of the Enders' PS4 remaster adds PSVR support
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2017, 4:19 am

It's been a while since we've seen or heard anything about Zone of the Enders. The mech classic was created by Hideo Kojima, best known for the Metal Gear series, for the PS2 in 2001. A Game Boy Advance spin-off was released six months later, followed by Zone of the Enders 2 in 2003. A third console entry was considered, but eventually cancelled. Kojima might be gone (he's off doing his own thing now), but Konami has a plan to revive the franchise. A PS4 remaster titled Zone of the Enders: Anubis Mars will be out next spring with improved graphics and PlayStation VR support. Nice.




Get a glimpse of the music behind ultra-hard platformer ‘Cuphead’
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 September 2017, 11:46 pm

Cuphead will probably be equally remembered for two things: Its already-infamous punishing difficulty and its gorgeous hand-drawn look. But folks shouldn't count out its delightful big band/swing soundtrack, which pairs perfectly with the game's 1930s-esque animated style. Studio MDHR released a teaser video showing a "making of" look into recording the title's breakaway hit, "Floral Fury."
