Riders of Icarus previews the Rift of the Damned and steps back on Alliance changes
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 September 2016, 2:30 pm
Don’t be nervous about entering Riders of Icarus’ Rift of the Damned; as a recent development diary shows, it’s just a name. The eponymous Tritael Rift is really populated by the Fallen Legion and Tempest Dragons who are trying to plunge the world back into chaos once again rather than the actual damned. It sure does contain a rift, though, [...]

UK watchdog group investigates No Man’s Sky advertising
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 September 2016, 1:30 pm
Eurogamer reports today that UK watchdog group Advertising Standards Authority is investigating No Man’s Sky following “several” complaints over the game’s advertising practices. Readers will recall that following the launch of Hello Games’ much-hyped sandbox, gamers raged over the apparent lack of multiplayer in the game, in spite of pre-launch insinuations that it would be a game feature, but that [...]

Pink, fluffy dining at the 'Kirby' cafe
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 September 2016, 12:47 pm

If you didn't know, Kirby is a squidgy pink ball. With minimal facial features. That's about it. Which is why he's adorable (and popular) enough to warrant a whole bunch of merchandise, as well as temporary pop-up cafes across Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka. Japan isn't lacking for gaming culture -- in fact, we've already toured a few in our guide to Tokyo. It's just a shame that this one is a temporary arrangement. If you're a fan of all things pink and circular, get to Japan while you can: The Kirby Cafe closes at the end of October, and you need a ticket to merely get inside. Even if you're able to get in, though, can you stomach a Kirby pancake?

Hyperspace Beacon: Five things BioWare needs to do to keep SWTOR players around
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 September 2016, 12:00 pm
I write a lot of words about Star Wars: The Old Republic. And over this last year, the Knights of the Fallen Empire has done some really great things, like adding level-scaling, presenting a compelling story, and making all companions viable again. However, I think it can be agreed that KOTFE also took some steps backward as well. We are [...]

Have You Played… Wild Metal Country?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 September 2016, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Jim has. He auditioned it twice, and it failed to impress on both occasions. I, on the other hand, was bowled over. In fact I’d go so far as to say WMC is […]
