Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 2:08 pm

Player Unknown Battlegrounds, aka PUBG, has been pushing its way to the eSports realm for quite some time now. While it has moved beyond the straight-up battle royale genre it popularized with new gameplay like War Mode, it's the behind the scenes tech that will have the most impact on the game's success as an eSport title, including its 3D replay systems and help from chipmakers like AMD. Now, according to a report from Polygon, PUBG's first major eSports tournament take place July 25th through the 29th.

Field Research and Pokemon Go

Niantic has slowly been refining and expanding the game play options for Pokemon Go. Players have gotten better, more frequent, and more diverse events with the game.  I was especially good with the recent event that focused on the first generation


'Super Mario 64: Ocarina of Time’ is the perfect Nintendo mashup
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 11:00 am

Super Mario 64 is considered to be one of the greatest video games of all time. Its large, imaginative levels and increasingly difficult challenges have defined the 3D platformer genre since its release on the Nintendo 64. Similarly, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time — the first in the franchise with 3D graphics — is considered a classic with a record 99 rating on Metacritic. Both have been celebrated with portable re-releases and a deluge of fan movies, artwork and soundtrack remixes. But never have the two games been combined in a fan-made ROM hack like Super Mario 64: Ocarina of Time.




The best lightweight gaming laptops
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 9:00 am

Back at CES a few months ago, I wrote that we were entering a golden age in lightweight gaming laptops. It started last year with NVIDIA's small, power-efficient Max-Q graphics, followed by Intel and AMD's surprising team-up on Core H with Radeon RX Vega M graphics. Now Intel has ramped up the power further with its six-core, eighth-gen Core-i7 and Core-i9 portable processors. Over the past few months, a slew of lightweight gaming laptops using this tech have hit the market. But which ones are best? Let's take a look.

Finally getting somewhere

So I’ve not posted in a while – partially due to brain drain, partially due to work, and partially due to wedding prep. Weddings take effort, who knew? So here’s a post about stuff I’ve been up to, and my reactions to fanfest. So

It's now safe to skin your Nintendo Switch
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 April 2018, 7:58 pm

When it became clear that vinyl wraps and other stickers were damaging the Switch, you could practically hear the wailing from console customizers everywhere. How were you supposed to add a personal touch to Nintendo's machine without giving it a permanent paint scheme? At last, there's light at the end of the tunnel. Dbrand is now offering Switch skins that it promises are "100% safe" for the system's plastic housing. The company said it spent a year working with 3M to create a "unique" adhesive that won't wreck the design.

The next 'Doom' movie won't play in theaters
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 April 2018, 9:29 am

Do you remember the original Doom movie from 2005? You'd be forgiven if you didn't -- while it had recognizable stars (most notably Dwayne Johnson), it was a critical and commercial flop that only really found life after it left the big screen. However, that isn't stopping Hollywood from giving it another shot. After years of rumors, NBCUniversal has confirmed to Variety that a new Doom movie is in the works, no doubt meant to capitalize on the game series' revival. Actress Nina Bergman has already revealed that she'll play a role in the movie, which reportedly has a "super cool director."

Battle royale hybrid 'Darwin Project' is now free to play
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 April 2018, 6:26 am

It's tough to compete in the battle royale world, especially with Fortnite in the room. How do you convince players to try your game if they aren't immediately enraptured? Scavengers Studio knows how: give it away. The company has turned E3 darling The Darwin Project into a free-to-play title, with a new customization progression system coming on April 24th. Scavengers isn't shy about the reasoning, noting that a lack of players on some servers led to longer queues and trouble finding matches for the survival-themed brawler.

Valve acquires the creators of 'Firewatch'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 April 2018, 8:31 pm

Campo Santo has widely been regarded as the little game studio that could. Its very first game, Firewatch, won numerous awards and even landed a movie deal. It won't be quite so indie going forward, however: the development team is joining Valve. While the full terms aren't available, the team members are moving to Bellevue, Washington and will continue developing In the Valley of Gods as a Valve game. There's no word yet on how this will affect Idle Thumbs podcasts.

How Tesla and Waymo are tackling a major problem for self-driving cars: Data
Sean O'Kane,

In order for cars to drive themselves, the vehicles and their systems require loads of data. And gathering those details are one of the main goals for companies developing the autonomous cars that will eventually take us to the office. The Verge takes a look at how two of the main players in the self-driving space -- Tesla and Waymo -- are gathering gobs of data in very different ways.

'God of War' director's video shows the human side of making games
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 April 2018, 2:58 am

It's easy to forget that real people create games. For them, the eventual launch is as much terrifying as it is exciting -- they've poured years of their life into a project whose success is far from guaranteed. And if you need an illustration of that point, you just have to ask God of War director Cory Barlog. He posted a video of his reaction to early reviews of the PS4 action blockbuster, and it adds a sorely-needed human element to an industry where developers are often reduced to a list of faceless names in the credits.

'Resogun' developer teases multiplayer-centric 'Stormdivers'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 April 2018, 5:00 am

Last November, Finnish game developer Housemarque declared that the arcade genre "is dead." The studio's last title, Nex Machina, was warmly received by the press and currently boasts an 88 rating on Metacritic. "Lackluster sales," however, meant the company needed to change direction if it wanted to keep making games. It vowed to make "something completely different" and today, we have our first tease of the team's new project. The game is called Stormdivers and it promises a "multiplayer-centric experience" blended with "hard flying and heavy hitting gameplay." What that means in practice, though, is a mystery.

If you weren't able to get your hands on one of the 5,000 copies of the campy horror game, Night Trap, for the PS4 last August, fear not! Limited Run Games announced on Friday that is will be releasing the cult classic once again, this time for the Nintendo Switch.




'H1Z1' Pro League's Vegas matches stream on Facebook this weekend
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 April 2018, 4:20 pm

H1Z1's take on the battle royale genre may not be as popular as, say, Fortnite or PUBG, but it has something the other two don't: an eSports tournament in Vegas. On Saturday the 21st, 75 pro players from 15 well-known teams like Echo Fox, Cloud9 and Luminosity will try to survive to the bitter end at the Twin Galaxies eSports Center, which is located just off the strip within Caesars Entertainment Studios.
