MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Shows Off Destructibility and MechWarrior Online Gets Solaris 7 Patch

Author: Guest_Jim_*

We have news for a couple MechWarrior titles here, and first up is a new trailer for the upcoming MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. The trailer shows off the level of destruction you can achieve as mechs take damage as does the environment. If the shortest path to an enemy is through a skyscraper, then the map can do with one less building. MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is currently aiming for a December 2018 launch and will be the first single-player MechWarrior title in over two decades.

 

 

For MechWarrior Online, the Solaris 7 Patch is launching this week, bringing expansion-level content. With Solaris 7, players will get to act as gladiators in 1v1 and 2v2 games that others can spectate.

Terraria: Overworld Development Ended

Terraria: Overworld, the sequel to the popular 2D survival sandbox Terraria has ceased development. In what was certainly a difficult, if necessary post, developer Re-Logic informed the community the game is too far from a release state and it will not compromise work on other projects for this one title. That is not to say the effort already invested will be wasted, as there are many ideas from Terraria: Overworld that will be implemented in future projects from the developer, including many that have not been publicly seen.

Also in the post are some of the lessons the developer has learned, including being more judicious with what it shares and when, to make sure only projects they are fully confident will reach fruition will be publicly known. Going forward Re-Logic will also try to keep core development more internal, and not rely on external teams for development.

This Is the Police 2 is the sequel to the 2016 game and takes you to the new setting of Sharpwood, a rough and cold place. You will be playing as Lilly Reed, the new sheriff trying to maintain order despite those under her not used to taking commands from a young woman. Today we get a new gameplay trailer for the game that will be launching later this year. In it you will be able to directly control your cops to manage situations in the new turn-based combat mode system, and you will need to be careful. There are no hit points and one bullet can be enough to kill.

THQ Nordic Skipping E3 for 2018 FIFA World Cup

Author: Guest_Jim_*

If you were hoping to see upcoming THQ Nordic titles shown off at this year's E3, it looks like you will need to wait until a Gamescom in Cologne, Germany or PAX West in Seattle. The company has today announced it has decided to skip E3 so it can watch the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and some E3 Twitch streams. While it would have been possible to watch the World Cup live in Santa Monica, the difference in timezones between there and Russia, where the World Cup is this year, would mean drinking at 7 AM, which is "too early, even for Austrians, let alone the Swedes."

Warcraft 3 Gets 1.29 Update with Widescreen Support

Category: Gaming

Author: Guest_Jim_*

My first video card was an ATI Radeon 9550 and the first game I played after I installed it was Warcraft 3. That was many years ago, but the game has just gotten a patch many fans of the classic RTS are surely going to enjoy. Among the changes coming with version 1.29 is widescreen support, since you did not see many widescreen CRTs back when the game released, and game lobbies supporting 24 players, along with 12 new team colors. The World Editor has been upgraded as well, along with many balance changes and other tweaks. The patches notes do state it will be the last patch to support Windows XP though, for those of you still running the operating system (if you are still playing such classic games, you may still be running a classic operating system, possibly by necessity).

If you have a copy of the Warcraft 3, it looks like now might be a good time to reinstall and replay it.

Destiny 2 Warmind Expansion Launching May 8

Category: Gaming
Posted: April 12, 2018 07:29AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

Destiny 2 launched back in October and in about a month its Season 3 will begin, starting with the launch of its Warmind expansion. Bungie, the game's developers, have recently shared a roadmap and detailed some of the changes players can expect, including those who do not purchase the expansion. The Crucible maps Warmind will add to the game will be available to everyone in matchmaking, along with the maps that came with Curse of Osiris. This is to keep the Crucible unified across the playerbase, but when private matches arrive, you will need to own the expansion to access the maps. Bungie will be showing off Warmind in a reveal Twitch stream on April 24.

Other changes on the roadmap include weapon randomization, weapon slot changes, gear collections, and records, and these will be coming to all players with Season 4 in September.

GTA V's Success Reaches $6 Billion, Firmly Establishing its Success

Category: Gaming
Posted: April 9, 2018 09:59AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

Grand Thefta Auto V originally launched in 2013, then came to the PC in 2015, and despite its age continues to prove itself a success. Now it appears it is the most financially successful media title ever, and by large margins. Having sold 90 million units, it has brought in around $6 billion, which leaves movies like Star Wars and Gone With The Wind in the dust with their $3 billion each (adjusted for inflation).

It might be the case that other game franchises have proven more successful, but it would be franchises like Mario Bros. and the whole of the franchise, not just one game. To make it even more impressive, GTA V launched without its GTA Online multiplayer counterpart, but over the years Rockstar Games continued to work on the game, adding new features and content while also addressing weaknesses. This capacity to change according to the consumers' desires sets video games apart from other forms of media and has certainly helped to fuel its success.

This is most likely an outlier, but as video games continue to grow in popularity, it is an interesting thought to consider when we might see new records set.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands Getting Year 2 and Sam Fisher Content

Category: Gaming

Author: Guest_Jim_*


Whether you love or hate DLC, it does continue the life of games long after launch and now we know some of what is coming for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands in its second year. There will be four major updates called Special Operations that will be free for all players, and the first one drops April 10. Special Operations I adds a campaign mission and a challenge with exclusive rewards along with the Sabotage PvP game mode. Sabotage will have five exclusive maps, a new class, and perks for players to enjoy. Players will also get to customize AI teammates with the clothing you unlock for your character.

While the Special Operations are going to be released for free to all players, you can purchase Year 2 pass for $29.99 to get seven-day early access to the Ghost War classes. The pass also includes a customization pack, four Special Ops crates and four Ghost War crates.

One of these new classes is the Echelon class, and those familiar with other Tom Clancy-based games might be reminded of Sam Fisher's Fourth Echelon Team from the Splinter Cell series. Part of Special Operations I is a crossover between these two series with Sam Fisher teaming up with the Ghosts for a mission. This mission is only available until May 2, so if you want access to the special items it grants, like Sam's characteristic the night-vision goggles, you will need to do it before then.

If this all sounds interesting but you are just not sure if you want to purchase Ghost Recon Wildlands, from April 12 to April 15 there will be a Free Weekend across all platforms. During the weekend you will get to enjoy the complete base game, Ghost War PvP mode, the Predator mission, and the Special Operations I content.

Later this year you can expect to be challenged in the action-RPG Dark Devotion. In the game you will play as a Templar, whose eternal suffering brings them to salvation, but as you explore a mystical temple, your crusade will take you through centuries old traditions. The story is meant to tell you a somber tale of your religion's undeniable calling with every encounter being a test of suffering, piety, and conviction along with being a fight to the death. Luckily you will have dozens of weapons as well as prayers, blessings, and curses to give you flexibility in how you approach enemies, in one playthrough or many.

Dark Devotion is being developed by Hibernian Workshop, published by The Arcade Crew and will be coming to PC and consoles later this year.

Far Cry 5 Sets Records for Franchise and Ubisoft

Author: Guest_Jim_*


It was just last week Far Cry 5 launched, but it has already set a franchise record. In fact, it more than doubled the specific record of first week sell-through, which Far Cry 4 had held, making it the second biggest launch for Ubisoft, following Tom Clancy's The Division ($310 million for the first week). Over half of the Far Cry 5 sales were via digital distribution. To mark this new record, Ubisoft has pulled together some other statistics, and put some on an infographic you can see below.

Some statistics not on that graphic though would be the 55,000 hours streamed on Twitch with YouTube videos getting over 117 million views. These are records for an Ubisoft title in its first week, and evidence of how user generated content helps drive people to join the Far Cry community.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Working With IO Interactive to Publish HITMAN: Definitive Edition

Author: Guest_Jim_*

For a long time, IO Interactive and its series of Hitman games were associated with Square Enix, but that changed recently with IO Interactive becoming an independent studio. For those concerned about the future of the popular franchise, we now know the developer has made a publishing and distribution agreement with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE). As part of this deal, HITMAN: Definitive Edition will be launch in retail stores for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 15.

HITMAN: Definitive Edition will contain all of the content for HITMAN, though the Elusive Target missions are time-limited events and some new in-game disguises from other IO Interactive titles. The inclusion of these outfits is to celebrate the developer's 20th anniversary and the three outfits are inspired by Freedom Fighters, Kane & Lynch, and Mini Ninjas. If you are thinking about getting this for your console library, it might be worth noting some of the add-on content is not included on the disc and will need to be downloaded. Depending on the platform, this content could amount to 12 to 24 GB.

Galactic Civilizations III: Intrigue Expansion Has April 11 Release Date

Author: Guest_Jim_*


After being announced in January, we now have a release date for the Galactic Civilizations III: Intrigue Expansion and it is April 11. This expansion promises many changes, including the addition of politics, government, and galactic trade, all of which you can stay up to date on with the Galactic News Network (GNN). One of the new mechanics is to allow worlds in your empire to gain independence by giving them commonwealth status. While this does mean your micromanagement will not be so requested, there will be financial benefits and you gain their political support too.

Along with the release of Intrigue will be the release of the 3.0 update for the base game, and therefore all players. This update brings changes and new mechanics, such as setting the tax rate from the govern screen, tourism to grow your influence, farming on a planet's arable tiles, and more common extreme worlds. The frequency of finding extreme worlds has been increased and some species will be able to colonize them without special technologies, such as carbon-based lifeforms settling on a corrosive planet while Synthetic life cannot.

To mark the expansion's release, Stardock founder and CEO Brad Wardell will be playing it with Angry Joe on YouTube and Twitch the day of. The time of the stream is still to be determined, but you can follow Stardock's Facebook and Twitter channels for updates on that.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War Dropping Premium Currency and War Chests on July 17

Author: Guest_Jim_*

Loot boxes by any name, especially those purchased by micro-transactions, have come under great scrutiny in recent months, along with the games that offered them. One of those games, Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be dropping its War Chests along with the Market and the Gold premium currency even come July 17 as part of a free update. Changes to the campaign and a number of updates and new content will also be added on that date.

According to the official announcement on these changes, the reasons come from play feedback and the sense the ability to purchase orcs compromises the Nemesis System. With this system, players are able to build and experience their own stories as they find and gather Orc allies, so the ability to purchase them weakens these stories and even damages the immersion just by existing. While Gold to make these purchases will be removed on July 17, the actual ability to purchase Gold will end May 8, leaving time for already purchased gold to be spent. Any Hold not spent will be converted to in-game items.

A number of other updates are also coming on the July 17 date, including changes to the Shadow Wars part of the campaign, which involved having the players defend the fortresses they have acquired from Sauron's attacks. New narrative elements will be added and the experience will be streamlined and made more cohesive as well. The Endless Siege mode added in November will continue to offer the current Shadow Wars experience. Other improvements will be detailed in future build notes, such as Nemesis System updates, player skins, additions to the skill tree, hear system upgrades, and progression updates. It looks like July 17 will be a significant update for the game. The Desolation of Mordor story expansion DLC is scheduled to release in May and is the game’s second and last story expansion.

Author: Guest_Jim_*


Originally released in 2009, Red Faction: Guerrilla is considered the best in the franchise by many, and THQ Nordic has announced it is making a return as Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered. This will bring the game to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but is also bringing its improvements to PC in Q2 2018, so in the coming months.

In Red Faction: Guerrilla you play as a member of the recently recreated Red Faction movement on Mars. Your goal is to expel the Earth Defense Force that has been oppressing the red planet's colonists, and you achieve this by blowing up a lot of stuff across the planet and getting some really awesome weapons and tools to do so.

With the Re-Mars-tered edition players will get to enjoy a number of improvements, including reworked textures and new graphic features, like specular maps. Shadow rendering and lighting have been improved and shader and postprocessing has been reworked too. There will also be native 4K support, so your destruction will be as clear as ever, at least on PC. Whether the consoles will get native 4K support is still to be determined.

Valve Using 1700 CPUs to Catch CS:GO Cheaters with 1700 More in Reserve

People will find ways to cheat in about every video game that exists, and when it is a popular competitive game, such cheating can be a serious problem. Counter Strike: Global Offensive is such a game where cheating ruins the experience for others, so to fight back Valve bought a server farm with 1700 CPUs. The servers are leveraging Deep Learning techniques to identify cheats and have a conviction rate of 90%, but when they are set to target new cheats, that rate jumps to 99%. While that is definitely successful, Valve is not resting on that. The company has another 1700 CPUs it can launch to bolster the available processing power if it feels it needs to.

Next Assassins' Creed Game Might Be Set in Greece

Author: Guest_Jim_*

After taking a break from its yearly release cadence, the Assassin's Creed franchise returned last year with the release of Assassin's Creed Origin, taking players to ancient Egypt, farther back in history than the series has before. Rumors are now suggesting the next game, expected in Fall 2019, will be set in Greece, which has a great deal of interesting history, like Egypt. At one point rumors had claimed Origins would include a portion set in Greece, but then that changed to Greece being saved for the next game, and these latest rumors support that. Also part of the rumor is that this next game entered full production at the beginning of 2017 and is being developed for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Time will tell if this rumor is accurate, and my guess would be an announcement at this year’s E3, if not sooner, especially if the Fall 2019 launch target is accurate.

It was back in January when Epic announced it would be shutting down Paragon, an action MOBA the developer built in Unreal Engine 4 that will be gone come April 26. While it might not be possible to get a game going after that date, you may see some of its characters and other parts after this date. Epic has released Paragon assets to the Unreal Engine Marketplace, and though the assets are worth a total of $12 million dollars, they will be free to use in UE4 projects, "no strings attached." This release includes assets for 20 characters, Monolith and Agora environment assets, and announcer audio.

If you are using UE4 for your project, are considering using it, there will be a livestream on March 29 at 11AM PT / 2PM ET on how to set up animation Blueprints for Paragon characters at the Twitch.tv/unrealengine channel. Also, you can expect more Paragon Asset packs to be released through the Summer.

Longitudinal Study Examined Impact of Violent Games on Adults

Category: Gaming
Posted: March 19, 2018 08:06AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

For a very long time, there has been a question in society of whether violent video games can lead to the people playing them becoming more violent in their lives. A number of studies have been done to test this hypothesis, and a new one to the list, having been published just a week ago, comes from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and looked at the impact on 90 people, from 18 to 45 years old with an average age of 28, which Ars Technica did a nice write up on.

A focus of this study was to look for any impacts long after the subjects played any video games. Many studies have examined people immediately after playing a game, when they might still be primed for certain behaviors, but for this study the researchers also had the participants tested two months later. The study used questionnaires to test the participants' aggression, hostility, and other behaviors before, after, and then two months after having them either play Grand Theft Auto V, The Sims 3 or nothing for at least 30 minutes each day for eight weeks. Participants were screened for any mental health issues before hand, and had either not played any video games in the prior six months, or played very little.

The data of the study failed to show a link between aggression and playing violent video games. In fact, given the number of tests the researchers were expecting to find ten participants would be affected, just based on chance, but instead the number was only three. While this is definitely an interesting study, the researchers do point out more research is needed, such as examining how children are affected, as this study only looked at adults.

It was back at CES 2018 that HTC first showed off the Vive Pro, a new head mounted display with several improved components, and now pre-orders are live for the device. The original Vive HMD has also received a price cut, so you can get that today for $499 or you can spend $799, the launch price of the original Vive, for the Vive Pro. The Vive Pro will begin shipping on April 5 and until June 3, the first sixty days of availability, those who purchase it will get a free six-month trial of Viveport Subscription. This subscription lets you pick up to five titles a month from a list of over 400 to enjoy. The $799 price is for the HMD only and does not include controllers or base stations, but it does work with SteamVR Tracking 1.0 and 2.0, so existing hardware will work with it.

Among the many improvements the Vive Pro offers are an improved display, built-in headphones, and redesigned ergonomics for increased comfort. This improved display comes from HTC going to a dual-OLED display that offers a combined resolution of 2880x1600, which is a 78% improvement on the resolution of the original.

Also announced today was The Crew 2 Motor Edition, that includes the Gold Edition content, the Motorsports Deluxe Pack, and some physical items such as the official roadmap and a 11.81x5.9 inch American The Crew 2 license plate. What truly makes the Motor Edition standout though is that it will let players into the game three days early. It is only available in the Ubisoft Store.

Minit Launching on April 3

For some people there is an appeal for minimalistic styling, with often clean lines and few if any colors to overwhelm your eyes. For graphics you cannot get much more minimal than what appears to be one-bit coloring, and for gameplay getting just 60 seconds at a time to explore, fight, and uncover secrets. This is what you can look forward to in the upcoming game Minit. Due to an unfortunate curse, your day lasts only one minute at a time, but no matter where you go, there will be challenges, secrets, and people to help before the day ends and you start it over again.

Luckily if this sounds like a game for you, it will be releasing on April 3, so just weeks away. It will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
