Back in April the action-RPG Dark Devotion was revealed and now we have a story trailer giving us more information about its setting. Suffering is central to your devotion and morality is absent when it comes to ways of proving yourself. Everyone seeks the same goal and divine light, and so everyone will reach the same end.

In this game you play as a Templar who is trying to reach salvation through their eternal suffering. As you explore the Temple though, you will find it holds many secrets and it will require revealing the truth to achieve what you seek. Other warriors before you have uncovered some clues so you will need to pay attention to all that you find for how it might help you on your quest.

Released back in February, Kingdom Come: Deliverance has received its first premium DLC, From the Ashes. With this DLC your character, Henry, is made the bailiff of a new village being built from a burned down bandit camp. The experience is meant to mirror what it was like to build a new settlement in the Holy Roman Empire. A roadmap released in May shows off other upcoming DLC.

Among the activities your new duties and responsibilities will include is planning the building of structures in the village and hiring NPCs to improve production. Upgrading buildings can get you unique items that will help you elsewhere and another perk is getting to ride new horses. You will also be needed to mediate disputes between citizens and manage your budget though, so not everything will just be for fun.

From the Ashes is available now for $9.99 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

F1 2018 Shows Off New Press Interaction System in New Developer Diary

Category: Gaming
Posted: July 6, 2018 12:04PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*


It is about two months before F1 2018 releases, so new information is coming out on what it will offer with the first of four developer diaries being released yesterday. This first diary covers the new system for press interactions as part of the game's career mode. On a basic level, you will be presented with the choice of being a good sportsman, demure and calm before the press, or be a showman that gets everyone buzzing. Such choices impact your team though, as this influences morale. If the team wants one kind of racer but you make the opposite choices, motivation can be lost and that can then impact price and reliability of your upgrades. Other teams are watching you too, so your press displays can impact what offers they may make you.

Speaking about other teams, you will now be able to approach other teams during the season about moving to them. Here again your press interactions will play a role, especially if you give any predictions for your career and how you live up to them. You will also get to select a championship rival from anyone, not just the other racers on your team.

F1 2018I is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on August 24, 2018.

Beta Twitch Extension Adds Viewer-Customizable Tobii Eye Tracking Overlay

Author: Guest_Jim_*

Back in 2016, I reviewed the Tobii Tracker 4C, an eye and head tracker for the PC that a number of games use to enhance the experience. Besides sending the tracking information to the game, Tobii also released a Streaming Gaze Overlay to allow people to add eye tracking to their videos. Now, this capability has been taken a step farther for Twitch streams as now the viewer can control how the overlay appears.

Tobii Ghost is the new name of the Tobii Streaming Gaze Overlay software and it can work with the beta Tobii Ghost Twitch Extension which adds an icon to those streams using it. When a viewer clicks on the icon, a panel appears explaining the eye tracking, thereby avoiding the common questions in chat about it, and the viewer can decide to turn it on and off and even allows them to change how it looks. Instead of the streamer getting to set the color, size, and type of eye tracking display, the viewer can decide all of that and if they want it to be a hollow bubble, solid circle, or a heat map. These options are available under Advanced.

Steam Summer Sale Begins and Developer/Publisher Homepages Now Exist

Author: Guest_Jim_*

Today Steam began its Summer Sale for the year, which runs until July 5 and in addition to the myriad sales it is also giving gamers a chance to win games through the Saliens game. The Saliens game lets you create your own Salien and then take it to a planet to defend your Deal-tection Station so it can locate games. The different planets reward different games, if you are lucky enough to get one, and it is possible to enter to win games from multiple planets, but the time you spend on a planet impacts your chances.

Also started recently on Steam are Developer and Publisher Homepages, something I am personally happy to see. These pages feature the games from the relevant developer or publisher and by following them you get notified of new releases and deals show up in your recommendations.

Among the developers and publishers is Stardock, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary but if you missed the sale they were holding to mark the occasion, many of their games are on sale again now. The current prices might not be as low as they were for the anniversary, but they are still pretty good for games including Galactic Civilizations III, Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion (producer interview), and more.

Enjoy the sale, even if your wallet does not.

AMD Partners With Three Developers for Upcoming Games

Partnerships between hardware manufacturers and video game developers are hardly new things, but it can still be nice to keep track of them, especially if the result is a better optimized game. At E3, AMD announced partnerships with three developers for their upcoming games. From Ubisoft, The Division 2 developers will be getting help from AMD and while no specifics have been given, the expectation is these benefits may be similar to those found in Far Cry 5, another Ubisoft title AMD partnered with them on.

From Rebellion, Strange Brigade is getting the partnership treatment, which is something other Rebellion games have enjoyed. Finally, the Resident Evil 2 remaster, which will be built in the Resident Evil 7 engine will enjoy an AMD partnership to bring about DirectX 12 support, performance optimizations, and support for FreeSync 2, including HDR support. This engine is also being used for Devil May Cry 5, which was announced at Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference.

There is some speculation part of the background to these partnerships is that the successors for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are coming, with both Microsoft and Sony continuing to use AMD hardware.

Author: Guest_Jim_*


It has been years since Cyberpunk 2077 was first teased, but finally CD Projekt Red has shared more information on its next RPG. The game will be an open world, narrative-driven game set in the classic pen and paper RPG universe, Cyberpunk2020. More specifically, the game is in Night City, the most violent and dangerous city in this corporate-ruled future and you will play as V, a hired gun on the rise. Unlike There will be a robust character creator for V, so players will get to set gender, visual appearance, character class, and historical background, and all of this may influence the shape of the game going forward. The main story arc will take dozens of hours with additional activities adding many more on top, so there is always something to do in Night City. An interactive dialogue system will give players a greater narrative agency as well, which should be quite interesting as you decisions can ripple through the whole of the game.

When it releases, Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Devolver Digital Shows Off Multiple Games at Press Conference

Author: Guest_Jim_*

Devolver Digital held its 2018 Big Fancy Press Conference ahead of E3 and showed off multiple games it will be publishing in the future. Among these is Metal Wolf Chaos, a From Software title from 2004 that had only released to the Xbox in Japan. Now it is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 with support for 16:9 and 4K visuals later this year.

 

 

Okay, I think this line is worth pulling directly from the press release concerning My Friend Pedro: "one man's struggle to obliterate anyone in his path at the behest of a sentient banana." Aside from describing the game as a violent ballet, I am unsure what more can be said. It is coming to PC and the Nintendo Switch in early 2019.

 

 

SCUM is an open-world survival sim game that will be entering Steam Early Access this Summer, allowing gamers to play as prisoners-turned-livestream contestants. The focus is the struggle to survive against the elements, wildlife, and naturally other contestants (and unnaturally undead contestants as well). The hardcore survival gameplay is combined with a versus mode of network events the TEC1 broadcaster puts on between volunteering players.

 

 

Also present at the press conference was Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass that will bring back the series on a greater scale, taking fans to a new adventure featuring bullets, guts, and the one-liners we can expect from Sam.

To celebrate the event, there is a Steam sale going on for featured Devolver Digital games.

The Big Fancy Press Conference 2018 is up on YouTube for you to watch:

At Microsoft’s E3 2018 Press Conference, Devil May Cry 5 was officially announced by Capcom. This wasn’t the only game that was announced at the conference!

This game features groundbreaking graphics, multi-platform availability, and three “radically different” playable characters, each with a unique combat style. This game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. 

This game looks like it’s really well done. I’m excited to try it when it launches next year! I especially like the personality of the girl in the preview video. I hope she’s a playable character!

Even More Bethesda Announcements from E3 2018

Author: Guest_Jim_*

There were a lot of announcements from Bethesda at E3 beyond The Elder Scrolls VI, Fallout 76, and new IP Starfield. First up is Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a co-op experience set 19 years after Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The fight against the Nazis continues and after BJ Blazkowicz has gone missing in occupied Paris, it is his children, twins Jessica and Sophia that must carry on. Also announced was Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, a VR game.

 

 

Bethesda brought more than one FPS with it to E3 as id Software's DOOM Eternal was also shown off. This game serves as a direct sequel to DOOM from 2016 and will try to incorporate community requests, such as including more demons and making the DOOM Slayer even more powerful. More details will be announced at QuakeCon 2018 on August 10 in Dallas, Texas.

 

 

If you do not want to wait for something new from Bethesda, the company announced and released Mooncrash, a DLC for Prey that takes the player off the Talos I space station to the secret TranStar base. You will be playing as Peter, a hacker stationed on a spy satellite meant to intercept TranStar communications, but once the base stops transmitting, he goes in to investigate. The campaign of Mooncrash is a rogue-like experience offering infinite replayability. Mooncrash is available for $19.99 now and as part of the Digital Deluxe edition of the base game. Mooncrash will get a series of updates adding new items and themes in the coming months. If you already own Prey and have it installed currently, you should notice it received an update, which is adding new game modes to try. Story Mode is for those looking for a more casual, narrative experience while Survival Mode will put your skills to the test. The update also adds New Game+, for those looking for a reason to replay the game.

The Elder Scrolls VI Is Finally Revealed

Before Bethesda's E3 conference could end, before we were able to breathe after the reveal of Fallout 76 and Starfield, there was one other game to announce. One that we've been waiting for after countless other releases by Bethesda (and that doesn't even count the number of times Skyrim was released). No, this is the biggest one of them all. This is The Elder Scrolls. Yes, The Elder Scrolls VI is happening, it's in development, and it's on the way. We have a short teaser, and I mean short, but TES VI is real. We sadly do not know where it is taking place, since there wasn't a subtitle attached, but that doesn't mean we can't guess based on the location seen in it. Maybe we're off to Akavir, the island continent located to the east of Tamriel, or perhaps even the mythical Aldmeris, the supposed home of the Elves. Wherever it might be, we'll be getting to explore and discover what awaits us in The Elder Scrolls VI.

No release date or platforms are known at this time, but hopefully, that will be revealed before long.

Bethesda Announces Starfield; First Original IP in 25 Years

Author: bp9801


After all the excitement of Bethesda's full reveal of the online multiplayer Fallout 76, there were two other announcements. One is a familiar game, which you can check out here, and the other is for something brand new. Something that Bethesda isn't entirely revealing just yet, but it's the company's first original IP in 25 years. It's called Starfield and is a space epic currently in development at Bethesda Game Studios. This is a game that's been teased ever since a trademark appeared in 2013, but precious little is known about it. It could be a first-person shooter/role-playing game hybrid, it could be something a little like Freelancer with FPS and RPG elements (Elder Scrolls in space?), or really anything at this point. We know it's on the way and we should expect more information soon once QuakeCon arrives in August. Until then, enjoy the teaser trailer below and let the speculation commence.

Experience the West Virginia Wasteland With Friends in Fallout 76; Arriving November 14

Category: Gaming
Posted: June 10, 2018 08:16PM
Author: bp9801


Last week, Bethesda Game Studios teased a new entry in the Fallout universe, Fallout 76. Not much was revealed then, which lead to plenty of speculation on just what it entails. The trailer for it mentions rebuilding, so is this a larger take on the settlement building of Fallout 4, where we have to rebuild parts of society? Was it multiplayer? Single player? What we did know is that it's set in Vault 76, which is a control vault and set to open 25 years after the bombs dropped. So that means Fallout 76 is set in the year 2102, which makes it the earliest a Fallout game has taken place. Bethesda's Todd Howard even said this is a prequel to the series, with a wasteland unlike any we've seen yet. However, that still leaves the question of what the game actually is.

Fortunately, the Bethesda E3 conference confirmed Fallout 76 is set in West Virginia and is four times the size of Fallout 4. There was mention of having to rebuild the world and even some scenes set in Washington, D.C., which does show just how large the world of Fallout 76 is when we step out of the vault. Now, what is the game actually? Well, it's an entirely online multiplayer game. Yes, that's right, Fallout 76 is an online multiplayer game that you can play solo if you prefer, but can team up with friends and strangers if you want. You can do quests solo, build up your settlement solo (yes, settlement building is back), explore the six distinct regions solo, and just treat it as a regular, single-player Fallout game.

Or you can team up with some friends, make new ones, get shot at by strangers, and experience everything Fallout 76 has in an online game. Some will be hostile, some will be friendly, and you can experience it all together if you so choose. There are new creatures and mutants to fight, new threats to prepare against, a whole new world to explore, and much more. The game features 100% dedicated servers, but you don't join a server and have all your progression tied to it. No, your progression is tied to your specific character, so whether you play solo or with friends, it always goes with you. One more thing about progression is how death is not tied to it, so if you die, you don't have to worry about starting over from scratch again. Not bad for a survival game, which Fallout 76 certainly is. Just it's a softcore survival game, as Todd Howard put it.

The world of Fallout 76 has 16 times the detail as before, featuring new terrain and texture improvements, and also with the ability to see much farther than you could in previous games. That even means being able to see weather systems across the map. As mentioned, there are six distinct regions of West Virginia represented in Fallout 76, with the game building on the folklore and history of the region. Those regions also hold a secret, as there are nuclear missile solos hidden away. As you go about killing ghouls and other baddies, you will find access codes to these silos. If you don't have all the codes, maybe your friends do or some friendly strangers who want to take out a settlement or area causing problems for everyone. Get inside that silo, pick your target, and watch it be bathed in nuclear hellfire. It should make for quite a sight.

New power armor, new weapons, new enemies, new settlements, new regions, and a new online multiplayer experience. Fallout 76 certainly looks to have it all, and fortunately, we don't have long to wait to see it all. Fallout 76 arrives on November 14, 2018, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. There is also a collector's edition that has a glow-in-the-dark map, little figurines to put on that map, and a wearable T-51b power armor helmet. It has a voice modulator even, so you can experience Fallout 76 without revealing your actual voice when you hop in with friends/strangers. Oh, and it also has access to the B.E.T.A. (Break-it Early Test Application) to give Fallout 76 a try before you dive in for good.

It was earlier this year the future of the Hitman franchise seemed uncertain as IO Interactive, the series' developer split from Square Enix, becoming an independent studio and taking the IP with it. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) signed a publishing and distribution agreement with the developer in April, so more games could see wide-release, and now the next game has been announced.

HITMAN 2, the sequel to the HITMAN game released in 2019, and it is currently scheduled to release on November 13 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. It will include new features, modes, and franchise firsts along with changes the community has pushed for. The game will continue to follow Agent 47 on his hunt for the Shadow Client to stop his militia, but after he learns more about his own past, things will change forever.

 

 

Among the franchise-firsts is a standalone co-operative experience that will allow two players to work together to deal with their targets. This Sniper Assassin mode can also be enjoyed alone as well and right now, as an early access bonus for those who preorder any edition of HITMAN 2. Also, those who go for the Gold or Collector’s editions will get four days of early access to the game.
