Widowmaker statue heads up the ‘new’ Blizzard Collectibles line

Blizzard has announced a swanky new line of "premium statues, replicas, and artwork" called Blizzard Collectibles, headed up by a 13.5 inch tall statue of the fearsome Overwatch assassin Widowmaker. "Our goal with Blizzard Collectibles is to produce pieces of art that capture the personality of our games, and we're excited to share these premium items with gamers and collectors worldwide." We're not talking about Tracer leggings here: The Widowmaker statue, like the Reaper and Tracer figures, go

Day of Infamy does justice to the classic WWII mod that inspired it

Day of Infamy, a standalone WWII rework of modern combat game Insurgency, is worthy of the 'Day of' moniker—which in this case references Roosevelt's Pearl Harbor speech, but also tips its hat to the classic Half-Life mod and eventual standalone game Day of Defeat. For a more modern comparison, because Day of Infamy does play differently than its DoD cousin, it's pulling me in like the launches of Red Orchestra 2 and Rising Storm did. That level of pressure has been rare in Day of Infamy so far—

The ethics of emulation: how creators, the community, and the law view console emulators

It's bad for the ecosystem because closed source alternatives could end up having an advantage on the open source alternatives. Dolphin has shared code with other emulators, and he says he looks at the code of other open source projects for inspiration. Most emulators are built on the work of dozens of people before them reverse-engineering hardware, writing documentation, and releasing source code. It's possible, of course, for a closed source emulator to achieve the same goal of preservation t

The first Destiny 2 ‘Last Call’ teaser video features Nathan Fillion telling tall tales

Yesterday, Destiny 2 was finally confirmed. And in two days, Bungie will unveil the official "Worldwide Reveal Trailer." "Last Call" features Nathan Fillion as Hunter Vanguard mentor Cayde-6, reminiscing about the good old days, and an "ugly contest where everyone was a winner." The tone of the trailer also represents quite a change from the grim, somber mood of the original Destiny, although how deeply that will run through the actual game is impossible to say. So for now, we're sticking with i

Starved for the sport on PC, Old Time Hockey is a bit of a letdown

We haven't had an NHL game from EA since 2008, and we haven't seen many alternatives since. However, now that I've spent a good chunk of time with it, Old Time Hockey isn't the exhilarating, arcade sports game that it initially looked like. In your hands, Old Time is stuck somewhere between NHL 94's d-pad scheme and the modern NHL games' skill stick. I'd love to see a developer create a deep, engaging fighting system for a hockey game, but this sadly is not that. Old Time Hockey isn't the game P
