The team has joined Ubisoft and will be renamed to Ubisoft Leamington -- based on its location in the UK. A post on UbiBlog says that the studio will collaborate with Ubisoft Reflections, whose past projects include Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and last year's Watch Dogs 2, in addition to Ubisoft's worldwide teams on their AAA projects.

IF Only: Apocalypse Eve
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 4:00 pm
Apocalypse is a popular topic of IF. Brian Moriarty’s Trinity explored the threat of nuclear annihilation, back in 1986; Phantom Williams’ 500 Apocalypses got several mentions here last year, from me and from Philippa Warr. Max Kreminski’s Epitaph takes a more Spore-like approach, as you’re allowed to try to nurture procedurally generated civilizations to survive […]

Transformers Online is Overwatch with robots
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 4:00 pm
In a perfect world, we'd already be playing a true Transformers MMORPG and enjoying every minute of customizable robots, on-the-go transformations, and roleplaying as slow-witted mechanical dinosaurs. Alas, our faulty world has yet to cough up such a game, and so we're left looking from afar at China's Transformers Online, which as MMO Culture notes, is really just a team [...]

Dragon Nest introduces the Arch Heretic class
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 5:00 pm
Dragon Nest is looking to revitalize its class lineup with this week's introduction of the Arch Heretic. The Heretic is a Cleric gone a little bad but in a fun, kick-butt kind of way. He uses a mace and shield to perform large, sweeping attacks on the battlefield. At level 50, the Heretic awakens into the Arch Heretic, which gets [...]

PSVR mech battler 'Rigs' won't get any new content
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 3:35 pm

Sony today confirmed that there will be no more DLC coming to multiplayer PSVR launch title Rigs. Following the recent closure of developer Guerilla Cambridge, it seems Sony has opted to cut short its initial plan for additional Rigs content.

While the ambitious mech-based multiplayer shooter won itself a loyal fan base amongst early PSVR adopters, Sony's decision to close Guerilla Cambridge suggests that the game's sales weren't quite up to expectations. Despite the closure, Sony told Eurogamer that Rigs' online servers will be unaffected, with the game still scheduled to receive patches and other "community support".

Microsoft's Twitch competitor, Beam, gets a major update
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 3:57 pm

Microsoft said it was about to supercharge Beam, and it's quickly following through on that promise. After a few weeks of beta testing, the livestreaming service's big 2.0 overhaul is now available to everyone. The most conspicuous change is what you'll see the moment you hop in. There's a revamped home page that can feature multiple streams and show more info about a broadcaster's communities. Also, you'll notice a revamped, HTML5-only player that touts better video-on-demand controls, playback at higher bitrates (up to 10Mbps) and higher resolutions (1440p at 60 frames per second, anyone?). However, some of the biggest improvements are under the hood.

Games are best when they ignore you
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 2:00 pm
Tutorials are a lot like first dates. They’re awkward but necessary, can be a total waste of time, and sometimes there’s a lot more hand-holding than you’d like. It would be best for everyone if we just skipped all that uncomfortable small talk and went straight to the middle part. The good part. Unfortunately, you […]

As down as I currently am on recommending any sort of video game related Kickstarter, I do have to mention the title that disappointed me the least over the last five years, which was the Defense Grid 2 campaign.  As a project, it shipped the content

Star Trek Online details the rewards for the Lukari Restoration Initiative
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 2:00 pm
Why is the Federation fighting the Tzenkethi in Star Trek Online? To defend a sentient race, obviously. (You don't need as much justification for the KDF, as Klingons will fight someone if they have an hour to kill until dinner.) But why will players fight the Tzenkethi? Why, to earn reputation with the Lukari Restoration Initiative in the hopes of [...]

Dark Age of Camelot continues to adjust pet classes
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 2:30 pm
Beware Dark Age of Camelot pet classes: You may be merely slightly less omnipotent than before, thanks to this week's patch. The team continues to fine-tune its pet classes after the last patch, which made sweeping improvements to them. After some evaluation, the devs concluded that some of the melee-pet roles were a little too powerful and have nerfed them. [...]

'Final Fantasy XV' tricked me into buying Cup Noodles
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 2:20 pm

I should have been turned off by the commercial advertising casually strewn throughout Final Fantasy XV. Coleman logos are plainly visible when the game's heroes set up camp for the night. Billboards for Nissin Cup Noodles line the highways of Eos. It's product placement so obvious it's almost laughable -- and yet, I now have an eight-pack of instant ramen on my kitchen counter. What happened? A beautiful, devious combination of empathy and nostalgia.




3 years on, The Forest is beautiful and terrifying by turns
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 12:00 pm
The Forest [official site], a pretty-but-harrowing singleplayer survival/crafting game, has been traipsing through the Early Access woods for three years now, and it impressed us even in its earliest days. I’ve yet to have the pleasure of butchering turtles or being savaged by cannibals, but with The Forest back in the charts and well over […]


Realpolitiks will unleash its political crises in February
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 12:01 pm
With the political wreckage of yesteryear still falling from the skies in giant flaming arcs it’s easy to see how a strategy game like Realpolitiks [official site] might take off. It’s set in the contemporary era and let’s you take control of a nation state. The idealistic among us might want to see if we […]


Oculus and Facebook facing ZeniMax in trial
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 12:04 pm
The legal battle between Oculus Rift owners Facebook and Bethesda parent company ZeniMax, who allege that the cybergoggles are partially built on work ZeniMax own, has reached a jury trial. Turns out, real courtroom battles are nowhere near as fun as Judge Judy or Ally McBeal would have you believe. Still, this week sees folks […]


Giveaway: 5000 keys for the Dreadnought beta
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 January 2017, 12:35 pm
There are plenty of games now about piloting zippy little space fighters, but still only one or two that offer you the chance to pilot hulking great capital ships. That’s what Dreadnought is offering: a team-based multiplayer game about gigantic spaceships firing lasers and missiles at one another across the deep space and the upper […]


Timeloop murder mystery The Sexy Brutale out in April
