• This year’s GuardianCon charity stream has been a massive success, totalling a whopping $3.7 million in donations over the course of the weekend, all to benefit the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its ongoing fight against childhood cancer. This year, Bungie staffers participated in part of the weekend livestream, raising around $400,000 during their time on the stream.

The film adaptation is directed by John Hsu, who provided the following statement (via Taiwan News). “As a gamer, the original Detention game left me shocked and made a deep impact,” he wrote. My goal was to keep the film true to the spirit of the game, but to further develop a unique vision and emotion. I wanted to create a

  • Since January, once a week 83-year-old Shirley Curry has been cracking open a book and reading it to her audience of some 600,000 Youtube subscribers. Not just any books—the books inside Skyrim, which she’s been playing as the Skyrim Grandma since 2015. Still, they’re soothing with Shirley Curry reads them, and that’s the whole point. After reading last week’s book, Watcher of Stones , Curry pauses for a moment, asks Inigo for his opinion on the book (he doesn’t have one), then offers her take.

  • Microsoft Flight Simulator was one of the best things to come out of E3—and the prospect of soaring over realistic cities and snowy mountains just got even more appetizing. The game will support “third-party content development and community content creation”, the development team confirmed in a blog post this week, and no doubt modders are already licking their lips. Microsoft didn’t specify exactly how it would support community content, but my guess is that we’ll see something akin to the Min

  • Destiny 2’s Lord of Wolves burst-fire shotgun is overpowered. In PvP, that means repeatedly dying to the weapon, which can shut down super abilities in an instant. Bungie intend to nerf the gun, but not immediately, according to creative director Luke Smith, who says a quick fix would put too much strain on the dev team. “To ask a team to do that back-to-back, full disclosure, is not a thing we want to do. In a later blog post, Smith said the weapon was particularly broken in PvP games on PC.

  • A few years ago a StarCraft 2 mod gave one of its maps the cartoon stylings of CarBot Animations, whose YouTube series StarCrafts has been turning the classic RTS into something much more adorable since 2012. Now they’re doing something similar for StarCraft: Remastered, only this time it won’t be tucked away in Arcade Mode. It’s a reskin for the entire game, with even the cutscene talking heads turned cute and cartoonish. This visual overhaul was created with help from Blizzard and has taken ov

  • Survival RTS They Are Billions came out of Early Access recently with a full campaign mode to supplement its existing survival mode. It received a rough reaction on Steam’s user reviews, with recent reviews dropping from Very Positive to Mixed. Developer Numantian have responded to the feedback with the first of many updates. The difficulty of the first few missions has been lowered, and the default mode is now Accessible rather than Challenging to encourage new players to start there and work t

  • In Streets of Rogue you’re a member of the Resistance, with missions to do in a procedurally generated city. You’re expected to carry them out with whatever tools your character has at their disposal. This is the kind of game where you can put poison gas in air vents, but it’s also got pills that turn people into giants. Streets of Rogue has been in Early Access for over two years, but as that trailer above shows, developer Matt Dabrowski is ready for his game baby to leave beta. Streets of Rogu

  • After a couple of delays, Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s first test on PC is expected to begin soon. 343 Industries was aiming for June, after E3, and now the flighting for Halo: Reach is on track to start next week. Registered Halo Insiders will be the first to get their hands on the remastered Reach, but only a small number of them. “We need to take our time to ensure we’re sending out a quality flight to our Halo Insiders,” Junyszek said. While this test won’t be a public, the details wi

  • Dota Underlords’ beta went live yesterday and, at the time of writing, it already has more than 170,000 people playing it concurrently, according to SteamDB. This is just based on Steam numbers and does not include all the Android and iOS players. Dota Autochess quickly became one of the most talked about mods, even beyond the Dota 2 community, echoing the original Defense of the Ancient’s rise to prominence. There are already a few new versions in development, though Valve’s been pretty quick i

  • Speaking of maps, all DLC maps will be free in both matchmaking and private play, so you’ll always be able to play with your mates. Gears of War 4 also unlocked DLC maps in multiplayer, but to get access to them in private matches you had to buy the season pass. It’s essentially a free battle pass. No loot boxes and maps for everyone should keep prospective players happy, and a free battle pass is a very nice surprise. I’ve never bought a battle pass in my life, so this is going to be a novelty.

  • RPGs shouldn’t have to focus on combat, shouldn’t have to even feature it, and an upcoming example of the latter is intriguing text-based RPG Roadwarden. In it, you play as a sort of highway defender, protecting the roads from hostile creatures and the resurrected dead. It’s a fantasy world brought to life with environmental pixel art, but mainly with big giant globs of narration and dialogue. The focus, however, is on the involved conversation system. Think Dragon Age 2’s earnest, nasty or sarc

This will introduce progression, cosmetics, custom boards, and a host of other new features to the Dota Underlords experience.

  • Children of Morta was announced in 2014 as a roguelike action game about the Bergsons, an extended family that’s served as the guardians of the mystical Mount Morta for generations. I had some issues getting the demo to run, including one crash-to-desktop, but after a reboot it fired up and ran without trouble. For reasons I don’t fully (or even slightly) understand, the demo will only be available until June 22, which is a shame because it’s really good. If you’ve had any interest at all in Chi

  • Dota Underlords, Valve’s standalone Auto Chess game and the heir to mod Dota Auto Chess , is in closed beta for those who have a Dota 2 battle pass. If you’re wondering about huge changes to the game mechanics in Dota Underlords, as opposed to Dota Auto Chess, it’s a bunch of small things and one big change. Though there are huge quality of life improvements, Underlords and the smartphone Auto Chess game are two forks of the same design. That doesn’t mean there aren’t improvements in Underlords:
