Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 April 2018, 2:12 pm

The battle between the Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) and FIFA franchises has raged on for years over which gave the superior soccer/football experience. But Konami's deal with the UEFA for a virtual Champions League mode in its games gave PES an edge over its rival. So today's announcement that the soccer organization is ending its 10-year partnership with Konami might be dire news for future PES titles.

Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 April 2018, 2:33 pm

If you've played any free-to-play mobile games recently, you'll be familiar with the playable ads that let you try a little bit of gameplay while waiting for the advertisement to time out. Google Play has been trying out its own "try before you buy" instant app concept with a handful of developers lately, too. Now Facebook is testing similar technology in playable ads on Facebook so that people can try out a game without installing it first.

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 April 2018, 11:39 am

Today, their bravado puts them at the top of the teddy bears’ picnic menu. In the […]

Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 April 2018, 11:00 am
I few years back I mocked Daybreak for hyping up an event to their community simply to be recognized by Guinness.  It was a staged publicity stunt. Not that that is so bad.  Lots of people do that.  What made my eyes roll was Daybreak


‘The Loss Levels’ is a game about shock, grief and powerlessness
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 April 2018, 11:20 am

The Loss Levels isn't beautiful or challenging, competitive or replayable. It isn't even fun... But where other games inject you into an entirely fictional world, The Loss Levels plants you firmly in this one. Specifically, it puts the player in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena bombing last year, and tells the personal story of developer Dan Hett, who lost his brother in the terror attack that claimed 23 lives, including that of the bomber.

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could

1920’s mech RTS Iron Harvest is a Kickstarter success
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2018, 5:48 pm
I’m not sure if I subscribe to the idea of ‘Kickstarter Fatigue’ being a thing, but it’s hard to deny the increasing difficulty faced by games finding their footing via crowdfunding lately. Iron Harvest, an ambitious RTS using the 1920+ setting (as seen in board game Scythe, based on the art of Jakub Różalski) has been a […]

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.
