Bloody 90s-styled shooter Strafe is coming out in March
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 1:58 pm
The blocky, gore-filled FPS Strafe [official site] is sidestepping onto PC on March 28, channeling the rocket launchers and shotguns of 1996 and combining them with some roguelite shiz. You pick a main weapon out of three guns to start then pile-drive through randomised levels, leaving the blood of your enemies behind as a “guidance […]


Wot I Think: Urban Empire
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 2:00 pm
Urban Empire [official site] is a city-building strategy game about politics and people rather than residential zones and monuments. Placing you as successive members of a dynasty, each acting as the mayor of a city developing against the backdrop of the previous two centuries of European history, it’s about votes and influence as well as […]

Friday Inaugural Bullet Points
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 1:15 pm
Today we get a new president, the 10th in my lifetime and the third during the life of the blog.  The state government here in California has declared itself opposed in all ways possible to the new president, which I find mildly amusing because the

Quantic Foundry, the gaming analytics consulting firm we've been following since late 2015 thanks to its Gamer Motivation Model, has a new blog post out this week that purports to break down participation rate in various gaming genres, including MMOs, by gender. Parsed from 270,000 self-submitted surveys gamers have submitted to date -- 18.5% of which are from women -- [...]

Examining the potential for exercise and exploration in Pokemon GO
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 2:00 pm
Just in time for your New Year's resolution, we reported on how Pokemon Go was featured in a peer-reviewed study on getting people to move more. But truthfully, Pokemon and Nintendo have built exercise games several times in the past, and Niantic never advertises PoGO as an exercise game. It's an ARG. In fact, the official site never mentions exercise, just exploring. That being said, we don't [...]

NVIDIA's new Shield TV is more of the same, with a better gamepad
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 2:00 pm

We expected NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang to introduce a revamped Shield TV at CES; what we didn't expect was for the new device to practically be a carbon copy of the original. Sure, it's a lot smaller, but inside it's running all of the same hardware we saw in 2015. And yet, NVIDIA claims it's still much more powerful than any other set-top box. That's a testament to how robust the company's X1 chip is, but it's disappointment new for anyone who was hoping for something fresh. On the bright side, the new $200 Shield comes with a new controller that's light years ahead of the last one. It's not revolutionary, but you can think of it as a refined spin on NVIDIA's original set-top box concept.

Limbo and Inside devs tease new moody game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 11:10 am
Playdead, the Danish studio behind grimdark puzzle-platformers Limbo and Inside, have shared a sneaky image from their next game. It seems to show a pilot or spaceman wearing a deployed parachute watching a fiery crash and, well, I won’t assumptively declare the game will following the Limside model but with a picture like that I […]


Wot I Think – Warhammer 40K: Sanctus Reach

The never-ending conflict between Warhammer 40K’s Orks and the greatest warriors of the Imperium of Man, the Space Marines, is an ouroboros that’s already trapped us all inside it. An infinite war, spawning an infinite number of smaller digital wars on our PCs, making sure we can never, ever escape. Warhammer 40K: Sanctus Reach [official […]


Steam expands controller support, adds game-moving

A belter of a Steam update launched last night, bringing better controller support and finally adding a way to move installed games around your hard drives. The controller changes let Xbox pads and generic X-Input controllers use the fancy Steam Controller configuration tools, playing with controllers in games which don’t officially support ’em and rebinding […]

Send your fit to the same E mail address, evetv@ccpgames with the subject "My fit" - Deadline is February 5!

Stitch together your own playable bodies in Crowfall
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 11:00 am
Do you have any qualms about playing with dead things in video games? How about playing a dead thing itself? Crowfall will offer both opportunities with its necromancy crafting profession. "Crowfall's vision for necromancy is not the same as traditional fantasy RPGs, where you raise pets from the dead and force them to do your bidding," the team explained. "While [...]

Chaos Theory: My Secret World 2017 goals
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2017, 12:00 pm
When the year-end Massively Overthinking asked about game resolutions, I honestly answered that I don't really make any because I hadn't ever done that and didn't expect to start. Many of the goals I make as I play throughout the year are pretty specific to what is happening at that time and what I feel inclined to do right then. [...]
