Mattel Making Halo 5 Action Figures
Feb 12, 2016 - 12:36 PM - by Evil Avatar

Microsoft and Mattel have announced they they will be launching a new line of Halo 5: Guardians action figures and toys.

Quote:
Since Halo: Combat Evolved launched in 2001, Halo has grown from a video game to a more than $5 billion franchise that encompasses New York Times best-selling novels, multiple live-action digital series and consumer products. The latter – including a dizzying array of toys – have generated more than $1.5 billion and include action figures, weapon replicas, clothing and much, much more.

343 Industries has and continues to be focused on making Halo toys fun, accessible and appealing to everyone – collectors, hardcore Halo fans and franchise newcomers alike. With that vision in mind, the studio behind one of the most successful franchises in gaming history have signed a master licensing agreement with one of the largest toy manufactures in the world: Mattel.

“The success we’ve seen with the Halo MEGA Bloks franchise over the years laid the foundation for this partnership,” said Bonnie Ross, Microsoft Corporate Vice President and Head of 343 Industries. “We’re excited to work with Mattel to bring innovative, quality and, most of all, fun products to old and new Halo fans alike.”

Partnering with Mattel not only expands visibility for Halo products in retailers worldwide, it unifies the design, development and creative vision of an important branch of Halo consumer products. The collaboration has already opened up new avenues for creativity, as two BOOMCo.-inspired weapons – the Assault Rifle Blaster and Magnum Blaster – recently made their way into Infinity’s Armory, the latest content update for Halo 5: Guardians.

“We’re excited to expand our relationship with Halo and 343 Industries to create and collaborate on a broad range of multi-category toys and collectibles,” said Joe Lawandus, SVP of Design and Marketing, Toy Box at Mattel. “From MEGA Bloks to blasters, action figures to radio controlled vehicles, our new line for 2016 features something for Halo fans everywhere.”

The Halo MEGA line will be on display at New York Toy Fair this weekend, and the full Mattel line of Halo products will also be available for viewing at Mattel’s Collector’s Night on Sunday.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Chaos Trailer
Feb 12, 2016 - 11:45 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
The Chaos fleet is inbound in the new gameplay video of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

The Chaos Warfleet, led by Abaddon and his admiral ship the Planet Killer, emerges from the Eye of Terror! After revealing the Imperium ships and gameplay in a previous video, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the new space RTS set in the Warhammer 40k universe from Games Workshop, now showcases the Chaos fleet and its ships in a new gameplay video!

Over the millennia, many ships and their crew have betrayed the Imperium to join the Traitor Legions. As such, a big part of the Chaos Warfleet is composed of ancient ship designs that have long since been decommissioned from service in the Imperial Navy.

But make no mistake, this does not make them less fearsome. While not as heavily armoured, Chaos ships are faster than their Imperium counterparts, and out-range them with extensive use of weaponry such as Lances and attack crafts. These traits work well in synergy with the Stasis Bomb: teleported from your ship, the bomb traps enemy ships and their ordnance, while allowing your own lances to rain destruction on them. Astute Chaos admirals will be able to inflict considerable damage to the enemy fleet before they may even return fire.

Chaos ships, and their crew, may also receive the favours of the four Gods of Chaos. Khorne, Slaanesh, Tzeentch and Nurgle will reward your prowess in battle with Chaos Marks, each giving different bonuses and abilities to your ship, while warping their hull, dramatically affecting their appearance.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada warps in on PC beginning of 2016.

Umbrella Corps Unveils Resident Evil 5-themed Kijuju Map #ResidentEvil
Feb 12, 2016 - 11:30 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
New Umbrella Corps Kijuju Map Revealed!

We recently shared a ton of new information about Umbrella Corps but we still have more to details to share before the game comes out in May. The game is a third person shooter with quick matches that are set in maps that are themed from the Resident Evil world. So far, we’ve confirmed maps such as Umbrella Lab, Village and Tricell HQ but some of you eagle-eyed fans may have noticed some hints at other areas in previous trailers for the game. For those of you that spotted the Kijuju map from Resident Evil 5, you were correct! Hit the jump for more info and screenshots on the Kijuju map.

The autonomous zone of Kijuju was the setting for Resident Evil 5, featuring a settlement that had been virtually wiped out by the Plaga bioterror infection. In Umbrella Corps, Kijuju will be a new battle zone that is also the biggest map in the game, with plenty of open areas and webbed underground passages to keep things interesting. As always, not only must you battle the other team, but each map includes other enemy threats that won’t make for an easy win. In this case, you’ll have to watch out for the infected Kijuju inhabitants called the Majini who are just as fierce and dangerous as you remember from Resident Evil 5!

Join the corps and check out the maps for yourself when Umbrella Corps hits your digital shelves on PlayStation 4 and PC in May!

Top Ten Best-Selling Games in the US for January 2016 #CallOfDuty #GTAV
Feb 11, 2016 - 11:26 PM - by Emabulator

The NPD Group has released its sales report for the top-ten best selling physical copies of games at retail for January 2016. This is third consecutive January with Grand Theft Auto V on the list

Quote:
As in November and December, Black Ops III continues to sell better on Xbox One than on PS4 despite the larger install base of the latter and Sony's platforms now getting DLC first. However, the NPD charts don't account for games sold as part of bundles with hardware, which is how many new PS4 buyers might be getting the game.

Star Wars Battlefront fell from the number two spot in December to number four, with Grand Theft Auto V and NBA 2K16 both topping it. Rainbow Six Siege, which didn't make the top ten during its debut in December, comes in at number seven, while the remainder of the list is primarily comprised of the usual suspects like Minecraft and Madden. (Battlefront sold best on Xbox One--again, perhaps because a PS4 bundle exists--but Siege sold best on Xbox One even though there is an Xbox One bundle with the game.)

For the month, new, physical software sales accounted for $212.7 million, a 10 percent decline compared with January 2015. NPD analyst Liam Callahan attributes this in part to a lack of new games. Lego Marvel Avengers was January's biggest new release, compared with Dying Light last year, which "generated 239 percent more unit sales" than Avengers. He also points to weaker sales during the month from games that launched during the final quarter of 2015.

Most interestingly, Callahan notes that this is third consecutive January with GTA V on the list. "Astonishingly, the game has moved up in ranking placement from fifth place in January 2014, to third in January 2015, and to the second-best selling game in January 2016."

...

Best-Selling Physical Games in US for January 2016:
  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III (XBO, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
  2. Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3, PC)
  3. NBA 2K16 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)
  4. Star Wars Battlefront 2015 (XBO, PS4, PC)
  5. Fallout 4 (PS4, XBO, PC)
  6. Minecraft (360, XBO, PS4, PS3)
  7. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege (XBO, PS4, PC)
  8. Madden NFL 16 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)
  9. Lego Marvel Avengers (PS4, XBO, 360, NWU, PS3, 3DS, PSV)
  10. FIFA 16 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)

Ubisoft Confirms No New Assassin’s Creed Game in 2016 #AssassinsCreed
Feb 11, 2016 - 3:10 PM - by Evil Avatar

Ubisoft has confirmed that there is no new Assassin's Creed title scheduled for 2016.

Quote:
It’s an exciting time for Assassin’s Creed.

We’re only a few months removed from the debut of Jacob and Evie Frye, the stars of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. We’re proud of the talented team in Quebec City, and all of our studios around that world that took part in bringing the Victorian London adventures of our twin Assassins to life. We truly hope you enjoy playing Assassin’s Creed Syndicate as much as our studios enjoyed making it.

Also, we recently unveiled the first images of Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender in action as our lead Assassin in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie that hits theaters on December 21, 2016. Having already visited the set, we can’t begin to describe how surreal and exciting it is to walk the real-world halls of Abstergo, or see the intricate replicas of Assassin weaponry. We have an outstanding cast and crew that want to honor the rich lore of Assassin’s Creed and bring a fresh perspective to the ongoing battle between Assassins and Templars that’s fit for the big screen.

This year, we also are stepping back and re-examining the Assassin’s Creed franchise. As a result, we’ve decided that there will not be a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016. Since the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, we’ve learned a lot based on your feedback. We’ve also updated our development processes and recommitted to making Assassin’s Creed a premier open-world franchise. We’re taking this year to evolve the game mechanics and to make sure we’re delivering on the promise of Assassin’s Creed offering unique and memorable gameplay experiences that make history everyone’s playground.

We’ll have more to share on all of the above soon. In the meantime, we want to say thank you to our millions of fans around the world for your continued support.

Bungie Hints & Destiny Expansion #Destiny
Feb 11, 2016 - 2:54 PM - by Evil Avatar

The most recent Bungie weekly update has a hint that another Destiny single-player expansion is in the works for sometime later this year.

Quote:
This week at Bungie Crimson Doubles is in full swing, but that’s not the only dance afoot.

Prior to the holiday break we mentioned a second, larger update slated for Spring. That content release will feature a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability.

Beyond that, the team is focused on delivering a large expansion later this year, and a full Destiny sequel in 2017.

As work wraps up in the weeks ahead, look for more details about the Spring content, as well as more information about our bigger projects in the months that follow.

Thanks for your patience, and thanks for playing.
The big question is how many people will still be playing by the time a big expansion rolls around. I guess I will be in. Destiny is the albatross hanging around my PS4's neck.

The Huntsman: Winter's War - Trailer 2 #TheHuntsman
Feb 11, 2016 - 1:00 PM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Discover the story that came before Snow White in The Huntsman: Winter’s War. Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles from Snow White and the Huntsman, joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain.

Theron stars as evil Queen Ravenna, who betrays her good sister Freya (Blunt) with an unforgivable act, freezing Freya’s heart to love and unleashing in her an icy power she never knew she possessed. Retreating to a kingdom far to the north, Freya raises an army of Huntsmen as her protectors, with the only rule that no two of them should ever fall in love.

As a war for domination escalates between the two queens, the hero standing between them is Freya’s most elite Huntsman, Eric (Hemsworth). Alongside fellow warrior Sara (Chastain)—the only woman who has ever captured his heart—Eric must help Freya vanquish her sister…or Ravenna’s wickedness will rule for eternity.

Producer Joe Roth (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland) once again leads the team in this breathtaking prequel in the legendary saga that is directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. This spring, find out who will win the war between good and evil in the epic action-adventure The Huntsman: Winter’s War.

Need for Speed on PC – Coming March 17th

We’re incredibly proud of how good Need for Speed looks visually, a sentiment we know many of you share, and we’re excited to show you the game running at a higher frame rate. Seeing is believing so we’re hoping when you see and play Need for Speed running with an unlocked framerate and at a 4k resolution you’ll be just as excited as we are.

The extra development time has allowed us to create the definitive NFS PC experience. One of the burning topics of discussion amongst our Community has been the inclusion of Manual Transmission - we can now confirm this will be in the game when Need for Speed launches on PC.

With the release on PC we're also adding steering wheel support for a selection of wheels from Logitech, Thrustmaster and Fanatec. As with Manual Transmission this is a decision taken based purely on Community feedback. We’re dedicated to bringing you the best Need for Speed experience possible and your feedback has been playing a huge role in that.

When Need for Speed launches on PC it will also contain all the improvements and tweaks we’ve made up to now, including both the Icons and Legends updates from day one. The Showcase update is currently scheduled to arrive on PC shortly after launch.

The PC version of Need For Speed will be releasing on March 15th. If you’re an Origin Access member, you can play the game early for a limited time, starting March 10. Not a member? Join today.

For those players on console we can also confirm that Manual Transmission will be making its way to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Keep an eye on official channels for future updates.

We look forward to welcoming our PC fans to Ventura Bay, we’ll see you on the streets.

Conan Exiles Developer Diary 1 #Conan
Feb 11, 2016 - 11:45 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Last month Funcom announced that the company is working on an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian, and that the game will enter into Early Access on the PC this summer. Today, Funcom is excited to release three new screenshots and a brand new behind-the-scenes video offering a further look into 'Conan Exiles'.

'Conan Exiles' is an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian, the world's greatest fantasy hero. The game can be played on private and public servers, either in multiplayer or local single-player. You start out as an exile, one of thousands cast out to fend for themselves in a barbaric wasteland, and from there you must hunt for food, grow crops, gather resources, craft tools and weapons, and build a shelter.

You can also band together with other players to build entire settlements and fortified strongholds, and wage war against your enemies as you unleash your fury in savage, fast-paced combat that will see limbs flying and heads rolling. You can even align yourself with the Hyborian gods, building altars to their glory and sacrificing the bloody hearts of enemy players upon them to shift the balance of power in your favor. Players will also have to face the purge: a special event where NPC armies from the neighboring kingdoms sweep in to destroy the progress that the exiles have made. Will you stand together with your fellow players against the purge, or will you use it to your advantage?

You can learn more about 'Conan Exiles' on conanexiles.com. Follow the game on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates. For more information about Funcom, please visit funcom.com.

Lumberyard Clause permits unrestricted use in Zombie Apocalypse #Amazon #Lumberyard
Feb 10, 2016 - 4:21 PM - by sai tyrus

Amazon's new engine has a few caveats for developers who wish to use it. The most interesting, however, is detailed below.

Via the Terms of Use:

Quote:
57.10 Acceptable Use; Safety-Critical Systems. Your use of the Lumberyard Materials must comply with the AWS Acceptable Use Policy. The Lumberyard Materials are not intended for use with life-critical or safety-critical systems, such as use in operation of medical equipment, automated transportation systems, autonomous vehicles, aircraft or air traffic control, nuclear facilities, manned spacecraft, or military use in connection with live combat. However, this restriction will not apply in the event of the occurrence (certified by the United States Centers for Disease Control or successor body) of a widespread viral infection transmitted via bites or contact with bodily fluids that causes human corpses to reanimate and seek to consume living human flesh, blood, brain or nerve tissue and is likely to result in the fall of organized civilization.
Will we still get same-day shipping?

Frozen Synapse 2 Announced #FrozenSynapse2 #pcgaming
Feb 10, 2016 - 4:02 PM - by sai tyrus

PC Gamer has the story:

Quote:
Frozen Synapse is the exquisite game of pre-planning, replanning and committing to a tactical assault on an enemy doing the same thing asynchronously, not the American-football-with-robots one by the same devs that I keep confusing it with. Tom Francis gave Frozen Synapse 89 in our review, so let's all take a moment to nod appreciatively at the announcement of Frozen Synapse 2.

Where the first Frozen Synapse took place in procedurally generated office blocks, this time the devs are seeking more of a challenge. Details are exceedingly thin on the ground but it appears that Frozen Synapse 2 will take place in an open world. How asynchronous plotting, rewinding and tweaking of multiple teams of gunmen in an open world is at all possible is beyond me, but we're told to expect more details in the coming weeks. It's aiming for release this year.

The Best XCOM 2 Class Builds #XCOM2 #XCOM #pcgaming
Feb 10, 2016 - 3:57 PM - by sai tyrus

PC Gamer has a write-up detailing different gear and skills for those fighting the good fight against alien scum in XCOM 2:

Quote:
XCOM 2’s classes share similarities and themes with the soldier types from the first game, but the Sharpshooter, Ranger, Specialist and Grenadier are all very distinct from their predecessors. There are many ways to combine perks, gear and soldiers to create powerful squads, and you should experiment often to find new strategies and tactics—but if you’d like some straight-up advice, read on for my favorite builds of XCOM 2’s classes.

Remember, you can respec characters through the Guerrilla Tactics School facility.
I'm going to wait a few more weeks before I bite. What builds have worked best for you? Any issues with performance?

Dungeons 2 Coming to PS4 in April
Feb 10, 2016 - 2:31 PM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Dungeons 2 isn’t about being a nice guy. It’s about becoming a Dungeon Lord so evil that goodness quakes in its boots. The campaign begins with the Dungeon Lord cursed into a half-life between this world and the next and bonded to his throne. Luckily, one can’t keep evil down forever!

With the ethereal “Hand of Terror,” you take direct control over your fledgling army of worker Snots as you begin to restore your evil dominance. Building out your dungeon, you will gain experience and gather gold, allowing you to enlist more and stronger creatures to do your bidding. Soon, your range of minions will expand to include beer-drinking Orcs, Goblin assassins, and boulder-throwing Trolls.

Eventually you will send your army of destruction to the ready-to-be-conquered Overworld. This is where Dungeons 2 switches from dungeon management to traditional RTS gameplay. Managing dungeons while restoring evil across the land are two fulltime jobs, and a successful Dungeon Lord needs to find the perfect balance between underground dungeon management and aboveground RTS.

The Dungeon Lord does have a lot of skills and utilities to ensure a proper working dungeon. Multiple types of rooms can be built to keep the gold and supplies flowing. Naga can mine mana to craft defensive and offensive spells, whereas Goblins are pretty crafty and can build brutal dungeon traps for when bold humans enter looking for gold and glory. Nothing says “keep out” like an exploding treasure chest to the face.

The Eighth Harry Potter Story Coming in July #CursedChild
Feb 10, 2016 - 11:40 AM - by Evil Avatar

Pottermore is reporting that Little, Brown will publish the eight Harry Potter story, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II, as a script book of the play in July.

In addition, a Definitive Collector’s Edition of the script book will be published later. There are tons more Potter products coming out with the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets heading to stores in October and house versions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone will be published in 2017 for the 20th anniversary of the book along with new versions of the Hogwarts Library books, updated for the release of the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Quote:
Readers and moviegoers last saw Harry waving off his children at Platform Nine and Three-Quarters, 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts, in the epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child picks up after that moment and is staged in two parts, due to the ‘epic nature of the story’.

The play opens in London’s West End this summer, based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany. It is officially the eighth story in Harry Potter canon and a new play by Jack Thorne.

Interest in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child from Wizarding World fandom has been massive, and now Potter fans across the globe will be able to join Harry, Ron and Hermione on the next stage of their journey.
Sounds like they have Potter products lined up for next couple of years. I wonder when we will see a "new" book? 2017 for the anniversary or later?

Fellow Survivors,

Today we can share release dates and all-new screens for the first of three episodes in The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries.

The second episode in the miniseries, 'Give No Shelter,' will follow in the month of March, and conclude with the third episode, 'What We Deserve,' in April. All three episodes in the miniseries will be available for purchase at the cost of $14.99 USD or equivalent when the first episode debuts, including access to the second and third episodes as they become available.

In this premiere episode, 'In Too Deep,' Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for survivors and supplies. When a desperate signal for help draws them to a scene of horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating survivors' colony of Monroe, which may just be harboring the person responsible for the carnage.

The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries stars the iconic, blade-wielding character from Robert Kirkman's best-selling comic books, portrayed in-game by award-winning actress Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black).

Over the three episodes of the miniseries, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group... and what brought her back.

Ahead of its release, fans are invited to get an exclusive extended preview of the first episode of the series on Youtube.com/TelltaleGames this Sunday February 14th at 8:30pm EST / 5:30pm PST. The development team will introduce the series allowing fans to experience the first five minutes of the premiere episode, exploring Michonne's struggle to remain among the living while being haunted by her past.
