  • Despite praising its “innovation, atmosphere and charm”, Phil felt Funcom’s The Secret World was hamstrung by its weak combat and genre-typical MMO padding in his 2012 review. Later that year the developer’s then new CEO Ole Schreiner suggested it “definitely had the tools” for a free-to-play-styled Secret World, and now it appears this will be realised: The Secret World is relaunching as Secret World Legends this spring and will be free-to-play. And here’s a teaser:Despite Phil’s relative reser

  • Billed as a “musical action-adventure set in the recesses of the human mind”, Figment is the latest game from Bedtime Digital Games—a gorgeous hand-drawn isometric puzzle game with combat elements. Assuming control of Dusty—”the mind’s former voice of courage”—it’s your job to face your fears, do battle with nightmares as you explore fragments of the mind, and help restore the courage the mind has lost. Each scene unfolds against a score of animated music, each variation of which is said to be ”

  • There’s just one problem: nobody wants to play support. Unfortunately, this is League of Legends, and nobody wants to play support. League of Legends offers a multitudes of ways to engage in the game, and no one wants to play support in any of them. In order to talk about the fact that nobody wants to play support, we’re going to have to ask ourselves why no one wants to play support. Autofill is one of those experiments: will people happily play support once in awhile if it means faster queues

  • Word of Telltale’s narrative slant on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy first surfaced amid last year’s voice actors’ strike, and was later confirmed at December’s Game Awards. In January, US videogame retailer GameStop seemingly unveiled the game’s plot and momentarily touted April 25 as its launch date. Telltale has now confirmed Guardians of the Galaxy will kick off its episodic run one week earlier on April 18, 2017. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeak

  • Watch Dogs 2 has lots of forthcoming add-on content, and Ubisoft has been kind enough to lay it out for us in the form of a “content roadmap”. There’s stuff coming as soon as April, including a new PvP team-based mode called Showdown, as well as multiplayer motocross, eKart and drone races. It’s the June stuff that’s most interesting though, in particular support for 4-player parties “to explore the city and play activities together”. That presumably doesn’t include single-player missions, but i

  • Hey, remember how much of a pain it was to access the DLC area of the original Dark Souls? Well, From Software has mellowed over the years, and getting to Dark Souls 3’s The Ringed City DLC is actually pretty easy. The second is found where the Sister Friede battle takes place in the Ashes of Ariandel area. Again, this is right behind where the player spawns at the Sister Friede bonfire:Again, spawn at the Sister Friede bonfire and just turn around. While getting to The Ringed City’s new areas i

  • Last week, the U.S. Senate voted along party lines to stamp out strong FCC privacy regulations introduced in 2016. The privacy framework in these rules focuses on transparency, choice, and data security, and provides heightened protection for sensitive customer information, consistent with customer expectations. The Commission also revises its current telecommunications privacy rules to harmonize today’s privacy rules for all telecommunications carriers, and provides a tailored exemption from th

  • Now, with the sequel potentially under six months away, I want to talk about what it needs to ensure success on PC. The leaked poster mentions the beta will take place on PS4, implying similar deals can be expected for Destiny 2. Note also that this year’s Resident Evil 7 was a ‘Play Anywhere’ title, meaning saves transferred automatically between PC and XB1. As mentioned above, The Vault of Glass raid is brilliant, and arguably the thing that persuaded players to stick with Destiny. It goes wit

  • Attentat 1942 is not your typical Second World War videogame. It’s a “historically accurate adventure” about the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakian territory in 1942, told from the perspective of the survivors. “The game is built on personal memories, interactive comics, and authentic footage,” the Steam Greenlight page says. “You will speak to eyewitnesses, live their memories, and discover the untold story of your family.” Attentat 1942 is expected to be ready for release in the third quarter

  • 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, 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—

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Palit Microsystems, mostly known for its custom graphics cards, has just announced two new SSD product lines. The Palit UV-S series uses the low cost triple level cell (TLC) NAND flash, while the GF-S series is “designed to perform for the gamers,” and uses multi-level cell (MLC), offering better performance overall. As for the gamer-focused GF-S Series, the three drives here are largely similar apart from the storage capacities. The 120GB model has a max sequential read speed at 560 MB/s, but a

  • Today’s release of the latest patch to the Square Enix MMO Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, taking it to version 3.56, means players can now “experience the conclusion of the Heavensward main scenario.” And for those of you who aren’t currently players, the news is potentially even better, as the update also removes the 14-day time limit on the trial. #FFXIV free trial has been revamped!
