Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope Exits Early Access on Steam

Category: Gaming

Author: Guest_Jim_*


Eleven months ago Croteam, put Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope on Steam Early Access and today the developer has fully launched it. To mark the occasion, it is 25% off on both Steam and the Oculus Store. Part of this final update is the addition of playable character Serious Sammy and randomly generated missions, providing limitless gameplay for the serious players.

With this game players can visit five different planets and try to survive the game modes with the various weapons, upgrades, and powerups. In the Arena mode you face 8 arenas that have 4 waves of randomly generated enemies, and if that sounds easy, you can always try increasing the difficulty, as there are 20 difficulty modes. Beating an arena difficulty gets you a weapon upgrade.

The Endless Wave game mode has you just trying to survive as long as possible, hoping to claim a spot on the global leaderboards. The Daily Challenge provides an endless wave scenario but on a specific arena map each day, for more direct competition between players.

Galactic Civilizations III and Crusade Updated to Version 2.5

Category: Gaming

Author: Guest_Jim_*


Today Galactic Civilizations III and its expansion, Crusade, have received the major v2.5 update. With this update come improvements to AI, UI, balance, and performance.

Some of these improvements you will see in GalCiv3 actually come from in Crusade being brought into the original game, but naturally not with the expansion's special features. Some UI changes, like the summary tab, come from Crusade, along with how galactic resources are accumulated, and even the performance improvement for AI. Now the AI system is run on a core-neutral engine in both the base game and expansion. Crusade's improvements to the Diplomacy system, including the very useful trade bar, have been brought to the base game too.

If you look at the release notes there are two that might be of particular interest to current GalCiv3 and Crusade players. Saves from earlier versions of the game are not supported, so if you want to continue playing them you will need to select "galcivclassic – v2.33 Release" under the Betas tab of the game's Steam properties. For those with Crusade but want to return to the base game without having to remove the files, you can add -DisableDLC "Crusade" as a launch flag. The release notes are fairly long but might be worth looking through to see what other handy enhancements have come, and what Crusade enhancements are now in the base game.

I want to share this quote from the CEO of Stardock, Brad Wardell, concerning his view of the Crusade expansion and the future of it and the base game:

I view Crusade as practically a sequel to the base game, not just an expansion. We really don't want to get into the business of charging money for AI and engine upgrades, so we'll continue to improve both games in order to achieve the best possible results.

SNES Classic Will Ship in High Numbers and NES Classic Returning in 2018

Author: Guest_Jim_*

This is some news that for anyone who wants an SNES Classic but did not secure a pre-order might be glad to hear. Today Nintendo has released a statement that the company will ship more units of the SNES Classic in the US on its September 29 launch date than it shipped NES Classic units all last year. Naturally these will not be the only shipments, with more to come regularly afterward. I would not be surprised if demand continues to exceed supply, but at least this should make it easier to find one at the $79.99 MSRP.

Speaking of the NES Classic, if you were not able to get one last year, you will be getting a second chance at one, without turning to Ebay. In the same press release Nintendo has also stated it will be returning with new shipments next summer.

From the developers of Grow Home and Grow Up comes Atomega, a new online multiplayer FPS from Ubisoft. In this game you play as an Exoform, a post-biological lifeform existing at the end of the universe, fighting over mass.

The rounds last for ten minutes and those who earned the most points by collecting mass win.

Atomega releases September 19, as in next week, and will be available on Steam for just $9.99.

L.A. Noire follows Cole Phelps, a decorated veteran who has recently become a detective in 1940's Los Angeles. He will be investigating an escalating series of cases, which are inspired by real-world crimes, ultimately leading him to the criminal heart of the city.

Come November 14, gamers will have their choice of experiencing L.A. Noire in VR, at 4K, or on the go thanks to the portability of the Switch, the power of the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, and the capabilities of the HTC Vive. The console versions will include all of the DLC from the original game, along with technical enhancements to improve the experience, while the Switch will also receive platform specific enhancements, such as a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic and gesture-based controls.

Some months ago, Microsoft announced the coming of Windows Mixed Reality headsets from multiple manufacturers. These headsets are meant to help make virtual reality more accessible to people, with lower price tags and simpler technologies. Now some more details have been revealed at IFA, including that the headsets will support VR content on Steam.

Headsets and motion controllers from HP, Lenovo, Dell, and Acer should be available at holiday time starting as low as $399, bringing them in under both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Unlike these two already-available headsets, these new Windows Mixed Reality headsets use built-in sensors for tracking position, instead of external sensors, allowing for a plug-and-play experience.

With the launch date of Absolver approaching, we are getting some information on what will be coming post-release, and a look at its multiplayer features. Absolver is an online melee action game and with a new trailer we are seeing how some of the online features will work. All players will start exploring the plains of Adal alone, but will encounter both AI opponents and live players. When coming across a live player, they may engage in some friendly sparring, an actual PvP fight, or join together for some cooperative PvE fun, with up to three players. Players can learn moves from each other when playing cooperatively. Also more advanced players will be able to make their own combat schools for others to join, effectively making them a mentor.

Starting about one to two months after release, the first of the free content updates should start releasing. The first update has been announced already and is to answer the wishes of the current testing community. The early players were requesting 3 versus 3 combat modes, ranked matches, and a spectator mode. These three features will be among the first added to the game through the free updates, along with new combat styles and moves from players' combat decks.

Absolver releases on August 29 for PC and PlayStation 4.

On August 24 Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation will be receiving its v2.4 update, which will include many changes, including the long awaited support for Vulkan. This was already the first game to support DirectX 12 (when the base game, Ashes of the Singularity, launched) and now it will be the first title to support both DX12 and Vulkan simultaneously. Vulkan’s support for multiple operating systems means Windows 7 and Windows 8 users will be able to use it. The benchmarking tool is also seeing an update with v2.4.

Of course there are more changes than those, including UI changes resulting from a full menu rework, updates to scenarios and all three campaigns, rebalancing, and increased modding support. To thank the multiplayer community, a free Co-op Map Pack DLC is also going to be released on August 24.

Today two characters were announced as pre-order bonuses for Volition's and Deep Silver's upcoming Agents of Mayhem. One agent is Lazarus, a merging of woman and machine, who still loves humanity, even though she has evolved beyond it. The other is Johnny Gat from the Saints Row franchise, though with a retconned backstory. Instead of being a member of the Saints gang, Johnny achieved the rank of Lieutenant in Seoul's police department. After awakening from a year-long coma and finding the police had been replaced by robots, he needed a new place to call home. His love of guns and wanton destruction (and hate of robots) made him a perfect fit for MAYHEM.

Lazarus is a pre-order bonus character for digital purchases while Johnny Gat is a GameStop exclusive pre-order bonus. Agents of Mayhem releases on August 15 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

On February 27, 2018 for the first time in the franchise, players will get to visit America in Far Cry 5 on PC, Xbox One (including Project Scorpio), and PlayStation 4. More specifically, the game is set in Montana, in the fictional Hope County where you will be playing as the new junior deputy. Your arrival has accelerated the plans of the Project at Eden's Gate, a fanatical doomsday cult that is now trying to violently take over the county.

To fight back against the cult you will join the residents of Hope County to form the Resistance and use various vehicles and weapons. These vehicles include airplanes as you will engage in aerial dogfights with the cultists across Big Sky Country. There will also be American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs, and boats to use, especially when you are trying to escape the cult or the wild animals. Making a return is the map editor, allowing players to create new playgrounds.

There are a number of Far Cry 5 videos up on YouTube, and you can find them all at the linked source below.
