Bethesda Has Announced it Won't be Sending Early Games to Press Anymore #Bethesda
Oct 25, 2016 - 4:54 PM - by Emabulator

VG247 has the story.

Skyrim: Special Edition won’t be given to press in advance of release, Bethesda has announced. In fact, neither will Dishonored 2 – or any other Bethesda game going forward.

The publisher will now be mailing out code to arrive with media outlets one day in advance of release. Traditionally, most publishers have given press anything up to a couple of weeks early access on major releases, but under an embargo.

Bethesda announced this new policy in a blog post, citing DOOM, which was distributed to press just one day before release, as proof that it doesn’t need to enable early embargoed reviews to succeed critically or commercially.

The announcement is presumably designed to pre-emptively counter any suspicion that Bethesda’s decision to distribute review copies late in the day means the game in question is rubbish; speculation of that sort always kicks off in these kinds of situations.

Titanfall 2 Reviews: "A Must Play" - Game Informer, "A Spectacular Game" - GameSpot
Oct 25, 2016 - 3:49 PM - by Emabulator

Game Informer - 9.5/10

In an era where it feels like the majority of shooters either have single-player or multiplayer tacked on, Titanfall 2 is the full package. The top-tier campaign has nearly perfect pacing, and the subtle revisions and additions to the multiplayer make it better than ever. For first-person shooter fans, Titanfall 2 is a must play.
GameSpot - 9/10

Titanfall 2 demonstrates a vitality that its predecessor couldn't. Whereas the first Titanfall kept up its breakneck pace throughout the entirety of every match, Titanfall 2 understands that sometimes, dialing things back for a few moments can make the long run much more enjoyable. In many ways, Titanfall 2 feels like the game Respawn should have made in 2013. It's a fantastic sequel. It's a fluid shooter. It's a spectacular game.
GamesRadar - 4.5/5

Titanfall 2 might well be this year’s best surprise. The original game’s gorgeously tactile, flowing traversal systems always had great potential as the fuel of a single-player campaign, but the care and craft that Respawn has instilled into creating that adventure will blindside you. It’s immediately gratifying on a moment-to-moment basis, but as a complete work and experience, it’s one of the most creative and rewarding FPS in recent memory.
Digital Spy - 4.5/5

This isn't just a worthy sequel to Titanfall, but one that improves upon the original while adding a superb single-player campaign. The latter combines fast-paced action, pilot acrobatics, heavyweight Titan warfare and a surprising amount of heart in one of the most enjoyable solo storylines of the year.

And when you're done with that, the enhanced multiplayer is there to dazzle you with fluid motion, high-octane gunplay and those mighty mechs going mano e mano.

Now that it's hitting PS4 as well as Xbox One and PC, Respawn's giant-sized shooter is getting a second shot at the big leagues. Titanfall 2 richly deserves it: it's a masterful piece of work.
Hardcore Gamer - 4.5/5

Titanfall 2 takes what works with the original and builds on it. The same addicting momentum-based movement system is back and it’s still fun to use. Built on top of this is a campaign that, while not the most original, manages to create a relationship that feels genuine with a unique mission structure that embraces the movement system to create unique gameplay scenarios. Then you have the multiplayer that may not have as many weapons as some other games, and a few maps that don’t play to the game’s strength, but still manages to produce hours of fun. Titanfall 2 breathes new life into the concept and has solidified it as a franchise. Now, let’s all standby for titanfall.
USgamer - 4/5

Although it's a little on the short side, and its production values are a bit oldschool, Titanfall 2's single-player campaign is a really enjoyable experience while it lasts. It's very inventive and fun, and a great warm-up for the game's excellent multiplayer component, whose gunplay and controls are absolutely outstanding. All it needs is a few more maps and modes.

Debt With Blood Yakuza 0 Trailer #Yakuza0
Oct 25, 2016 - 8:24 AM - by Evil Avatar

Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

The 1980s in Japan were defined by unprecedented amounts of decadent overindulgence – and nothing was out of greed’s reach, especially in Kamurocho. A chilly but electric Tokyo in December 1988 is the backdrop for Kazuma Kiryu’s ascension into the ranks of the Yakuza – the name given to members of notorious crime organizations. And with Yakuza 0, newcomers to SEGA® of America, Inc.’s Yakuza series will be able to get in on the ground floor, with the game’s standalone, story-driven action that focuses on navigating the seedy underworld of Japan with series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, and for the first time in a numbered title, players will be able to play as long-time NPC, Goro Majima – the Mad Dog of Shimano. Available on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the game will be localized and released as physical and digital versions in the Americas.

Yakuza 0 Features:

• The Dragon’s Origins: What lies in a man’s past defines his future, and in this case, we learn a lot about what inspires Kiryu down the paths he takes in the rest of the Yakuza series. Plus, you don’t get to be called “Dragon” without being able to knock a few heads. Combat styles can be hot-swapped during fights for some of the most intense battles in the Yakuza series to date.

• Embrace the Mad Dog: For the first time in a numbered game, long-time NPC Goro Majima is now playable. With his own fighting style, abilities, and his penchant for turning sleaze into profit, stepping into the role of Yakuza’s most eccentric character will provide some eye-opening insight.

• The Decadence of the 1980s in Japan: Cash rules everything in the world of Yakuza 0, and in the game, there are a million ways to spend, make, or take money. From cash spilling out of the pockets of gang members you fight to Telephone Clubs, Disco Halls, or even Pocket Circuit car races, there are tons of ways to be a well-to-do gangster.

SAG-AFTRA Game Voice Actors Go On Strike Today
Oct 24, 2016 - 9:17 AM - by BeardedSonOfNel

The video game voice actor union, SAG-AFTRA, has officially called a strike against a number of video game companies following two years of unsuccessful negotiations. The strike began at midnight this morning.

The union was asking for a new compensation model that would give voice and mo-cap actors residual payments based on a video game’s sales and performance. The industry wasn’t willing to go that far, proposing instead an across-the-board 9% wage increase, as well as additional compensation up to $950 per game based on the number of sessions actors work on a title.

I wonder what future game delays will be blamed on this.

Titanfall 2 Has PS4 Pro Support On-Disc, Possible Titanfall Trilogy Coming
Oct 23, 2016 - 2:40 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Respawn's soon-to-launch Titanfall 2 will support PlayStation 4 Pro, the developer has reiterated. Additionally, producer Drew McCoy confirmed on Twitter today that the "support is on the disc."

It was already confirmed that Titanfall 2 would get a PS4 Pro patch, but this is the first time we're hearing that the patch will apparently be available when the game launches on October 28.

The PS4 Pro doesn't launch until November 10, so the patch is more preparatory in nature. Titanfall 2 is not the only game getting a PS4 Pro patch, as other EA games like Battlefield 1, FIFA 17, and Mass Effect: Andromeda also are. You can see all the games that are getting PS4 Pro patches here.

Sony's PS4 Pro is priced at $400. It comes with a 1 TB hard drive, which you can replace. For lots more on the PS4 Pro, check out GameSpot's recent feature that covers everything you need to know.

In other news about Titanfall 2, Respawn co-founder and CEO Vince Zampella recently said more games after Titanfall 2 are possible.

Report: Skyrim May Not Make it to Nintendo Switch After All #NintendoSwitch
Oct 22, 2016 - 3:23 PM - by Emabulator

MCV has the story.

Yesterday Nintendo decided to give us the first look at its new Switch console with a three minute video that showed off all of its fancy new features. One of the sections showed the console running Skyrim, which many took as confirmation that Bethesda’s classic RPG would be hitting the Switch sometime around launch.

However neither Bethesda nor Nintendo are confirming that Skyrim will hit the Switch at all.

"We're happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Nintendo on the video,” a Bethesda spokesperson told Games Industry. “While we are not confirming any specific titles at this time, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Nintendo and support of the Switch. We look forward to revealing specific games and details in the future."

Nintendo on the other hand have not specifically mentioned Skyrim, but did release a statement after the reveal that mentioned upcoming titles.

“Today’s video incorporated short glimpses of representative gameplay to demonstrate the liberating nature of the Nintendo Switch home gaming system,” said Nintendo. “Full game demonstrations, the list of launch window titles, as well as launch date, price, product configuration and related specifics, will be shown and announced prior to the March launch.”

Jessica Jones' Next Season Has All-Female Director Lineup #Marvel

IGN has the story.

The directorial lineup for the second season of Marvel's Jessica Jones will be comprised entirely of women.

Melissa Rosenberg, executive producer of the hit Netflix-exclusive series, shared the news during her panel at Transform Hollywood, which was relayed on Twitter by Variety's Mo Ryan (via ScreenRant).

Rosenberg spoke to aiming for a diverse set of perspectives as well when hiring for the show's writing staff, according to Variety, explaining that she looks for those with people who have experiences separate from hers.

"When I interview a writer, I’m less interested in what you’ve been doing professionally than I am in where you’re from, what your parents do, what’s your life experience, what are you bringing to the table personally," Rosenberg said.

Deadpool 2 Loses Director Tim Miller Over Creative Differences #Deadpool2
Oct 22, 2016 - 11:06 AM - by Emabulator

The Hollywood Reporter has the story.

Tim Miller, who directed Deadpool and had a hand in giving Fox its biggest hit of the year, will not direct Deadpool 2.

The director has parted ways with the studio over what insiders say are creative differences with Ryan Reynolds, the actor who plays the Marvel character.

Deadpool made $786 million worldwide when it opened on Valentine’s Day this year, launching a new franchise for the studio. The movie re-energized the career of Reynolds but it also began a second act for Miller, a visual effects specialist who founded Blur Studios and made a name for himself making video game trailers and opening credits.

By all accounts, success of the movie was truly shared by Reynolds, who helped define the voice to the characters, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and Miller. In fact, Miller is believed to be the one who leaked Deadpool test footage into the wilds of the Internet, with the ensuing enthusiastic reaction just what was needed to ensure that Fox, which was waffling whether or not to make the movie, gave it the green light.

Even before the movie’s opening, the gang was back together plotting the sequel. Deadpool 2 is in the casting stages and is in the middle of testing six actresses for the part of Domino, the project’s new female lead.

Sources say Reynolds and Miller had increasingly butted heads over certain creative issues. Reynolds was a producer on the original, along with Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner, but sources say his clout has increased exponentially on the sequel.

Sid Meier's Civilization VI Reviews "An Instantly Sumptuous Strategy Treat" #Civ6
Oct 21, 2016 - 5:43 PM - by Emabulator

TheSixthAxis - 10/10

Civilization VI is my new favourite addiction that I honestly can’t really fault. Each of the gameplay changes provides a fresh challenge, but they were well worth undertaking once they clicked. It’s packed full of the stuff that made the previous games great, but also has a crisp style that makes things clear enough when the game gets extremely busy. As such, the vanilla version of Civilization VI is so good, expansions aren’t really necessary to improve upon it. Having said that, I’m excited for what’s next.
Telegraph - 5/5

That word –– improvement –– is applicable to almost everything in Civilization 6. From its various routes to victory and how those methods of play intertwine; to its leaders and the numerous interactions between those bold and colourful characters, this is a supremely strong strategy experience with only a handful of quirks and flaws. It launches in such a feature full state that it’s a wonder where Firaxis could go next. For such a complex and in depth game to feel so intuitive is impressive, but for such a game to remain fun, exciting and unpredictable after forty, sixty, one-hundred hours of play? That’s joyous.
PC Gamer - 93/100

Sight, sound, and systems harmonize to make Civilization 6 the liveliest, most engrossing, most rewarding, most challenging 4X in any corner of the earth.
PCGamesN - 9/10

It'll take a few balance patches and expansions before it achieves absolute perfection, but the list of wholesale changes Civ VI brings to the storied formula makes for an instantly sumptuous strategy treat.
Trusted Reviews - 4.5/5

Strategy games live and die on the complexity and satisfaction of the countless decisions made within them, and it’s here that Civilization VI stands tall. Where its predecessors laid the foundations and systems of play, this is a game that refines and perfects them to a remarkable degree. It’s not without a couple of flaws – the odd diplomatic quirk and some religious spamming are its most notable – but Civilization VI gives the series’ 20-year Anniversary the hurrah it deserves. It’s a game that celebrates the genre while fundamentally improving it, and it comes in a package that is simultaneously attractive for newcomers while being exciting for Civilization veterans.

Battlefield 1 Scores Big in Early Reviews #Battlefield1
Oct 21, 2016 - 5:16 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot - 9/10

With Battlefield 1, EA and DICE have proven the viability of World War 1 as a time period worth revisiting in first-person shooters. It brings into focus countries and nationalities that do not exist today while also shedding light on how the outcome of that war has shaped our lives. As World War II shooters proved many years ago, no game can truly capture the entirety of a global conflict. This is why the focused structure of the War Stories anthology works well. Moreover, Operations succeeds as an effective educational primer on the battles that this gripping adversarial mode are based on. Battlefield 1 is just an introduction to one of the deadliest world events in history, but it is an outstanding, feature-rich package in both its emotional stories and strong multiplayer.
IGN - 9.0/10

Battlefield 1 does an amazing job of transplanting the fantastic chemistry of the series’ traditional multiplayer action into the weaponry and vehicles of World War I. The era brings with it not only a visually striking backdrop for classic game modes like Conquest and the compelling new Operations, but a distinct personality that touches everything from its rich lineup of archaic and distinctively designed weapons to the somber anthology of character-driven stories in its brief but surprisingly poignant single-player scenarios. While maps are not its strong point, Battlefield 1’s dynamically destructible environments and the minutely balanced mechanics of its classes and gadgets keep the moment-to-moment first-person shooting varied and engaging.
PC Gamer - 89/100

As I wrote at the beginning, Battlefield 1 is, at the most reductive level, still a Battlefield game. As such, it offers many of the same experiences as its (many, many) predecessors. Two things mitigate that. Firstly, Battlefield is an excellent template for a multiplayer shooter. Little provides the same sense of unpredictable sandbox drama, at least outside of more hardcore simulators such as Arma 3. Put simply, a Battlefield game is no bad thing to be. Secondly, little differences can have a big impact. Battlefield 1's little differences mean better infantry combat, a heightened sense of destruction, and a pace that feels more deliberate and tactical. This is no simple rehash and replacement, and, while I appreciate Battlefield 4's sense of scale, for me, Battlefield 1 is the better of the two.
Destructoid - 8/10

I haven't had this much fun with a Battlefield game since playing 1942 in my cousin's basement with a LAN setup. While 4 came close several years back it was a real glitchfest (particularly on consoles), and the relative smoothness of 1 is working in its favor.
GamesRadar - 4/5

When all's said and done, when the matches end and the dust settles, you'll see that large portions of the maps have transformed, their buildings pockmarked by blasts, their fortifications turned into piles of rubble. Even though bloody entertainment is at Battlefield 1's heart, the post-game wasteland is a reminder of the toll that conflict takes on the people it consumes. Whether in single or multiplayer Battlefield 1 absolutely nails the historical sense of adventure and expectation before swiftly giving way to dread as the war takes a physical and mental toll on its participants. And this - as much as the intimate, brutal virtual warfare - is the game's most impressive feat.

Why Is Half The Internet Down This Morning?
Oct 21, 2016 - 5:57 AM - by BeardedSonOfNel

Twitter, Spotify and Reddit, and a huge swath of other websites were down or screwed up this morning. This was happening as hackers unleashed a large distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack on the servers of Dyn, a major DNS host. It’s probably safe to assume that the two situations are related.

Domain Name Servers (DNS) act as the Internet’s phone book. Basically, they facilitate your request to go to a certain webpage and make sure you are taken to the right place. If the DNS provider that handles requests for Twitter is down, well, good luck getting to Twitter. Some websites are coming back for some users, but it doesn’t look like the problem is fully resolved.

Dyn posted this update on its website: “Starting at 11:10 UTC on October 21th-Friday 2016 we began monitoring and mitigating a DDoS attack against our Dyn Managed DNS infrastructure. Some customers may experience increased DNS query latency and delayed zone propagation during this time. Updates will be posted as information becomes available.”

Petition for Rockstar to release Red Dead 2 on PC
Oct 20, 2016 - 7:43 PM - by Varek

Because Red Dead Redemption is an amazing game and we PC players have been denied from playing it. Please don't do the same with Red Dead Redemption 2.
In case any PC peeps are interested there is a petition going on change.org which has about 30k signatures so far...

Whether Rockstar actually cares or not remains to be seen, but meh i guess think positive.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta Goes Live a Day Early on PS4 and Xbox One #CoD
Oct 20, 2016 - 6:35 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

After the first beta test for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare stuck around for an extra day, the second and final test has now kicked off a day early.

Activision announced on Twitter that the beta is now live on both PS4 and Xbox One. Those on Xbox One have to preorder the full game to gain access, but the PS4 version of this beta is (unlike the first) open to everyone. The beta is--at least for now--scheduled to run until October 24.

The first beta got off to a rough start, but Activision and developer Infinity Ward were able to iron those out. New content was introduced over the weekend, including additional game modes--you can read all about the maps and modes here. Players also found a glitch that allowed them to fly, though Infinity Ward said it was aware of that and would stomp it out.

Samsung Doesn't Like The New GTA V Sticky Bombs
Oct 20, 2016 - 5:24 AM - by BeardedSonOfNel

Samsung has filed a copyright claim against a video by Modded Games on YouTube showcasing a Grand Theft Auto V mod that replaced Sticky Bombs with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phone.

The “Samsung Galaxy Note 7 [Bomb]” mod was created by HitmanNeko, a modder with an affinity for making alternate car models for Grand Theft Auto V. This particular mod simply replaces the Sticky Bomb model with that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 initially faced a recall of 2.5 million units which later became a tricky logistical issue. Samsung eventually halted all production of the Note 7 after replacement phones began having issues with batteries catching fire.

A Mortician’s Tale
Oct 20, 2016 - 5:19 AM - by BeardedSonOfNel

Death is a game mechanic. It’s a check mate, a character motivation, a point earned, a fail state, a loss, a reset. In many games, death is everywhere. But even though death is woven into most games, rarely do games have a funeral or ritual associated with death. And that can deprive the gamer, according to Carla Sofka, a professor at Siena College who specializes in grief and online communities. “When a book or a TV show kills off a popular character, people often grieve, so it’s important to validate that. Even if something is fictional or virtual — that doesn’t mean people don’t get connected to the character,” Sofka said. “Giving people a chance to validate that grief is a wonderful thing.”

Toronto-based game developer Gabby DaRienzo wants to provide that validation. “I very much am a fan of games that have a traditional death mechanic to them and I think that mechanic does exist for a reason,” DaRienzo said. “But it’s just that — a mechanic. A way to punish or challenge the player, to convince them to keep going. Maybe your wife or your child dies at the beginning of the game and that motivates you to get revenge. There’s not much more beyond that and it feels very shallow.”

... She began work on a project that would eventually become “A Mortician’s Tale,” in which the player runs every facet of a funeral home — from answering emails to meeting loved ones of the deceased to preparing cadavers to attending the funeral. The game is scheduled to launch early 2017.

Warner Bros. Developing new Willy Wonka Movie
Oct 19, 2016 - 2:25 PM - by Evil Avatar

Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has secured the rights to the Willy Wonka character and franchise, and is developing a new prequel movie.

After helping build the “Harry Potter” franchise and rebooting it with “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” producer David Heyman and Warner Bros. are re-teaming to revive another classic character.

Sources tell Variety that Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to the “Willy Wonka” IP from the Roald Dahl Estate and is planning a new movie centered around the eccentric character.

Heyman will produce with Michael Siegel, who is the manager of the Dahl Estate. Kevin McCormick is exec producing. “The Secret Life of Pets” scribe Simon Rich is penning the script. Courtenay Valenti and Jon Gonda are overseeing the project for the studio.

Sources reveal that the film will not be an origin tale, but a standalone movie focused on Wonka and his early adventures. It’s unknown who from the original book series, other than Wonka, will be involved in the project. If the reboot is a hit, it seems likely that characters like Charlie could be seen in future installments of a possible franchise.

Phantom Thieves Have Leaked the English Voice Cast of Persona 5, Protagonist Trailer
Oct 19, 2016 - 11:31 AM - by Emabulator

Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

We're the Phantom Thieves of Hearts and we're ready to leak some news about Persona 5! We've discovered who the main English voice actors are and have stolen all of their marketing videos from the ATLUS vault. It wouldn't be right in our eyes to keep this information, so how about we share it with the world? I know it sounds weird since we'll be revealing our identities, but that's just how we roll. So without further ado, meet the "heroes" of Persona 5:
  • Xander Mobus as the protagonist
  • Cassandra Morris as Morgana
  • Max Mittelman as Ryuji Sakamoto
  • Erika Harlacher as Ann Takamaki
  • Matt Mercer as Yusuke Kitagawa
  • Cherami Leigh as Makoto Niijima
  • Erica Lindbeck as Futaba Sakura
  • Xanthe Huynh as Haru Okumura
  • Robbie Daymond as Goro Akechi
We're still reveling in the fact that we outwitted those worthless adults at the ATLUS office, so why not also unveil the protagonist of the game? The protagonist is the newest transfer student of Shujin Academy in Tokyo. He had a bad experience with corrupt authority figures in his hometown, but he's been given a second chance to start anew. Although he lives the life of a typical Japanese high-schooler during the day (such as going to class, hanging out with friends, putting in work at the batting cage, and more), by night he's something much more than "typical." Don't let his clean cut school boy uniform and stoic demeanor fool you, because this kid is the leader of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. Codenamed "Joker," the protagonist is a wildcard who'll do whatever it takes to steal the hearts of adults he perceives as corrupt.
