The Evil Avatar Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Review
Feb 22, 2020 - 5:50 PM - by Evil Avatar

Writer Aaron Birch is back with another review of another Dragon Ball title, this time it's Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot!

To say that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is a little bit similar to the previous Xenoverse titles would be a very large understatement, as Kakarot hits the exact same notes in many ways. However, that’s not to say Kakarot is a lazy, cash-grab, and it does present a new spin on the, admittedly tired, and seemingly endless retelling of the series’ various sagas we’ve seen of late. The question is, does it succeed?

Focus Home Interactive and Blackbird Interactive Announce Hardspace: Shipbreaker
Feb 19, 2020 - 7:05 AM - by Evil Avatar

Focus Home Interactive and Blackbird Interactive announce new title Hardspace: Shipbreaker ready for Early Access Kickoff this Summer.

Blackbird Interactive, the studio behind Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak and the upcoming Homeworld 3, and Focus Home Interactive are pleased to announce Hardspace: Shipbreaker. With true-to-life physics and demolition effects, a sandbox of creative destruction lies before you this Summer on Steam Early Access. Put on your suit and get a first look of the life a space cutter in its Debut Gameplay Trailer.

Early Access will launch with many features to discover, 2 classes of spaceship to salvage, multiple upgradable salvaging tools and perks, and the first act of the story campaign. Over the course of the Early Access period, we are committed to releasing more spaceship classes, missions, daily challenges, leaderboards, modding support and much more with the help of the Steam Early Access community.
“We identified early in development that we wanted to release Hardspace: Shipbreaker on Early Access. We have a clear vision for what we think the game wants to be but there are still some things we need to figure out and we thought it would be fun to bring in the Early Access community to help us discover these things together.” says Trey Smith, Creative Director on Hardspace: Shipbreaker.

“We are delighted to bring Blackbird on board the Focus flagship as we continue to invest in new and innovative games that will delight players for years to come. It’s also fantastic to be able to reveal this game in full at PAX East 2020, the premiere gaming culture convention running yearly in Boston, Massachusetts.” says John Bert, Focus Home Interactive Chief Operating Officer.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker launches in Early Access on Steam on Summer 2020. Focus Home Interactive and Blackbird Interactive will hold a live reveal stream on Twitch, February 20th at 5pm CET. The game will also be showcased at PAX East 2020 from February 27th to March 1st at the Focus Home Interactive booth (n°29017) and the Blackbird Interactive booth (n°28071).

THQ Nordic has greenlit a full remake of the classic RPG Gothic
Feb 19, 2020 - 7:04 AM - by Evil Avatar

Yes, we do it! The Gothic Remake is going to happen

Just a little over two months after releasing a playable teaser for the Gothic Remake and asking the players for their feedback, the answer is clear: The fans are up for a new "old" Gothic game and the vast majority (read: 94,8%) was in favour to develop a remake of the iconic German RPG Gothic, originally released in 2001.

Over 180.000 players have played the playable teaser so far. On the evening (CET) of February 16 2020, THQ Nordic took the survey offline, and hereby publicly releases the raw data of the survey, as well as highlight graphs. With more than 43.000 answered surveys and over 9.000 (yes, really!) reviews on Steam and various discussions on all social media platforms, there is enough data to check.

Eager to check for yourself? As we want to start a transparent and open production with the community from the very start of the project, we are happy to offer you the results of our survey in a neat PDF file or - for the people who really want to dig into the raw data - the entire dataset with all 43.111 participants included.

Download the PDF.

Next Steps for the Gothic Remake

THQ Nordic will establish a new studio based in Barcelona, Spain, and will then assess what players liked and what they want to be different than in the playable teaser. One of the most common mentions was for example the demand for a grittier and less colourful world.

"We are up for the challenge to develop a full Gothic Remake which will stay as faithfully as possible to the original experience and transport the atmospheric world of Gothic into a high quality look and carefully modernizing certain gameplay mechanics." says Reinhard Pollice Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic.

The full Gothic Remake will go into production and will be developed for PC and next gen consoles. There is no release window available yet, but it will not be coming in 2020.

Spooky 3D Platformer Pumpkin Jack Announced for PC & Consoles
Feb 18, 2020 - 7:08 AM - by Evil Avatar

We are thrilled to announce that the comically creepy 3D platformer from developer Nicolas Meyssonnier, Pumpkin Jack, will make its way to PC and consoles in Q4 2020!

Fans of games like MediEvil and Jak and Daxter will enjoy engaging in an epic battle of evil against good as you jump, dodge, and carve your way through challenging enemies and daunting puzzles. The use of Unreal Engine grants for gorgeously rendered and gruesomely colourful landscapes.

The peaceful Boredom Kingdom, with its happy citizens, monotonous calm... and adorable little bunnies, has sent the Devil himself into a flying rage! With dreams of turmoil, torture, and bloodshed on his mind, he unleashed the dreadful Curse of the Eternal Night upon the land. Not in love with the idea of a change in their peaceful lifestyle, the humans summon their saviour — a mighty wizard with the power to put an end to the evil curse.

In order to stop these party crashers from ruining his fun, the Devil summons the spirit of Jack, the Pumpkin Lord, to fight against the wizard’s army of beasts and destroy the killjoy wizard! You, as Jack, will be tearing your way through fright-filled levels as you punish those who dared defy your master!

Key Features

• Colorful Cartoon Setting: Travel through lurid landscapes in levels featuring alluring atmospheres, each crafted with vibrant colour palettes, and high-quality lighting effects

• Fight For Your Life: With challenging beasts lurking around every corner, players must master the art of combo attacks, dodging, and timing to survive dynamic real-time battles! Players must unlock weapons and choose wisely in order to strike down all who oppose them!

• Don’t Lose Your Head: Solve puzzles that focus on physics, gravity, and reflection as Jack, or ditch the skinsuit and just use your flaming head to burn books, hammer some moles, create paths for magic spheres, and more as each level introduces new and exciting challenges

• Find Friends to Fight at Your Side: Helpful companions are there to assist Jack in his journey, including a haughty hooty owl to guide him along, and a snarky crow, itching to assist with long-range attacks

Pumpkin Jack will be available for PC & consoles in Q4 2020. Players eager to jump into the fray can download the free demo on Steam right now.

Quantic Dream Announces Self-Publishing Venture
Feb 14, 2020 - 6:55 AM - by Evil Avatar


This year, Quantic Dream will celebrate its 23rd birthday.

Twenty-three: by that age, a person has left adolescence and is ready to become an adult. That, in many ways, is what Quantic Dream is doing today. After 23 years of learning, discovery, and growth, the studio is now going independent — and we have become masters of our own destiny.

Those 23 years have been a phenomenal ride. We’ve collaborated with David Bowie in Nomad Soul; we’ve directed performers like Clancy Brown and Lance Henriksen, Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe, Jesse Williams and Bryan Dechart, Pascal Langdale (Heavy Rain’s Ethan Mars) and Valorie Curry (Detroit’s Kara); and we’ve worked with composers like the late Normand Corbeil, Philip Shepphard, and Hans Zimmer, amongst many other talented partners. It would be impossible to mention all the extraordinary artists and creators we have had the good fortune to work with, but each and everyone has been a special collaboration and a unique moment in our 23-year journey.

But, even by those standards, the last two years have been exceptional: the success of Detroit: Become Human; the growth of an incredible global community; the launch of our games on PC – these are just a few of our highlights. Thanks to Detroit: Become Human, we’ve been able to realize the vision we held dear since the creation of Quantic Dream.

And so, for the first time in 23 years of working with prestigious publishers, we are now in a position to self-publish.

This new venture will allow us to make decisions in total independence, and to address the technological and strategic opportunities of next-generation platforms. It will also allow us to help other developers, by providing investment and development support, so that they can fully express their talents. We want to support creators of original projects and help them, in turn, to achieve their vision and offer quality, ground-breaking experiences.

This is more than an evolution — it is a transformation. We are doing this to preserve our freedom and our independence, to continue working on innovative and even more ambitious projects, to address greater challenges, and to create the unexpected. Quantic Dream will never be just another studio. We want to face new horizons, to keep our passion alive, and keep trusting in the idea of making games that are different.

Everything we have accomplished so far, from our collaboration with David Bowie in 1999 through to our plans for the future, is a reflection of our deeply held convictions. We have remained true to our beliefs, without compromise. This has only been possible because we have an extraordinary and united team of talented people who believe in this vision, and because we have always had an amazing community of gamers who have supported us on our journey. It is thanks to them that we are here today, and thanks to them that, after almost a quarter of a century, we can still dream of making them dream.

Quantic Dream is evolving, but the studio remains true to its roots. We continue to believe that interactivity can be a means of artistic expression, that passion and sincerity are our best allies in reaching gamers, and that the values of humanism, solidarity, and inclusiveness that we have championed in our games for 23 years are more necessary now than ever before.

Thanks to you, we will continue to be who we are: different, curious, passionate and sincere, and we will do all we can to keep amazing and moving you.

The Need for Speed franchise will once again be developed by Criterion
Feb 12, 2020 - 7:33 PM - by Evil Avatar

EA will move Need for Speed development back to Criterion

EA will return the Need for Speed franchise to UK games studio Criterion.

Current franchise leader Ghost Games in Gothenburg is set to become EA Gothenburg once again (pending Swedish Union approval). The studio will refocus itself as an engineering hub supporting development across EA's portfolio. EA told GamesIndustry.biz that: "The engineering expertise in our Gothenburg team, some of whom are architects of the Frostbite engine, is vital to a number of our ongoing projects, and they would remain in that location."

As for the Ghost Games creative team, EA is looking to transfer many of the staff to positions at Criterion and other places within the wider organisation. However, 30 roles remain at risk. "Outside of the engineers and those that we plan to transfer to other positions, there would be 30 additional staff in Gothenburg, and we would hope to place as many of them as possible into other roles in the company," EA tells us.

Ghost Games has been the franchise home for Need for Speed for the last four games in the series: 2013's Need for Speed: Rivals, the 2015 reboot, 2017's Need for Speed: Payback and last year's Need for Speed: Heat.

However, EA says it has struggled to attract the right talent to Gothenburg to work on the series. By contrast, Criterion is based in Guildford, which is one of the UK's biggest game development hubs.

Criterion is known for creating the Burnout series of video games, and had previously developed two Need for Speed titles: 2010's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and 2012's Need for Speed: Most Wanted. However, in 2013 the studio downsized with many employees moving to Ghost Games (a UK Ghost Games team currently exists within Criterion's offices). At the time, Criterion was to begin working on new projects, including a cancelled extreme sports game.

Following the departure of studio founders Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry in 2014, Criterion has spent the last five years supporting EA DICE on Star Wars: Battlefront (with its VR mission), Battlefront II and Battlefield V. During that time, the studio has also collected three GamesIndustry.biz Best Places To Work Awards wins.

"With a strong history and passion for racing games and vision for what we can create, the Criterion team is going to take Need for Speed into the next-generation," EA stated.

"Ghost Games have helped to bring some great Need for Speed experiences to our players. Consistently delivering that at AAA levels means we need teams with diverse skills in locations where we can continually support them and bring in new team members to join. Despite our best efforts to establish an independent development group in Gothenburg over several years, it's become clear that the breadth of talent we need to maintain a full AAA studio is just not available to us there. Criterion can also provide the consistent leadership that we need to continue creating and delivering new Need for Speed experiences for a long time to come.

"Criterion is a fantastic studio, and we're looking forward to adding to their talented team and building a great future for Need for Speed. The engineering teams in Gothenburg are also vital to our ongoing plans across EA."

Metro Exodus Sam’s Story DLC Launch Trailer
Feb 12, 2020 - 7:45 AM - by Evil Avatar

Sam's Story, the Second Major DLC Expansion for Metro Exodus is Available Now

Deep Silver and 4A Games are thrilled to announce that Sam’s Story, the second major story DLC for Metro Exodus is out now while also confirming that Metro Exodus will return to Steam on February 15.

Sam’s Story follows former US Marine Sam, a Spartan Ranger who has worked under Colonel Miller since the nuclear war devastated Moscow, and followed Artyom in search of a world outside of the Metro. Sam had long dreamed of returning to his homeland, and perhaps even finding his father alive. The prospect seemed impossible in the darkened tunnels of the Metro, but when the Spartans discovered that Moscow was not the only city left alive after the war, holding out hope didn’t feel so foolish anymore.

Sam, determined to find a way back to the USA, departed from the Aurora to make his way through Vladivostok’s tsunami ravaged harbours, ruined industrial buildings, and crumbling residential districts. However, to complete his journey, Sam will discover that he needs every tactic he has learned so far to survive, as his surroundings prove to be far trickier than expected.

In this expansive ‘sandbox survival’ level, players will experience another gripping story line featuring new characters, weapons and mutant variants, in a huge, non-linear environment that offers hours of gameplay.

Sam’s Story is available to purchase on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Stadia – links are available at metrothegame.com/buynow. It is included in the Metro Exodus Expansion Pass, which also entitles holders to the acclaimed DLC, The Two Colonels, which was released in August 2019.

Be the first to learn more about Metro Exodus by registering for updates at MetroTheGame.com, and follow us on Twitter and Instagram @MetroVideoGame or on Facebook at Facebook.com/MetroVideoGame.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX Latest Trailers
Feb 12, 2020 - 6:56 AM - by Evil Avatar

What would you do if you woke up one morning... and you were a Pokemon?!

You can meet and recruit Pokemon in a dungeon-crawling adventure within their world! Build a rescue team to take on mysterious, changing dungeons and strategically plan your moves as you venture forth to make the Pokemon world a safer place…and uncover your true purpose along the way.

As you recruit Pokemon, these trusty teammates will need somewhere to stay, so build camps to house, manage, and strengthen your Pokémon friends. Think hard about who is right for the job and how to approach each mysterious dungeon as you prepare a rescue team. You’ll move a single square at a time or use Auto mode to speed up movement until you engage other Pokemon in turn-based battles—but don’t forget about Pokemon strengths and weaknesses! This version adds gorgeous watercolor-inspired graphics, and more! Get comfortable in being a Pokemon, there’s a lot of work to do.

Key Features

• Wake up in the world of Pokemon and uncover your true purpose.

• Dungeon layouts will change each time you enter them, so you’ll likely not have the same adventure twice.

• Build a rescue team to explore dungeons and engage in strategic turn-based combat.

• Pokemon are available to meet and recruit.

• This version adds gorgeous watercolor-inspired graphics, and more!

As mankind bleeds out in the trenches of Enoch, you’ll create your own Outrider and embark on a journey across a hostile planet. With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and deserts in pursuit of a mysterious signal. Combining intense gunplay with violent powers, along with an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets, Outriders offers countless hours of gameplay from one of the finest shooter studios in the industry.

The Outriders Reveal Stream will feature Game Director, Bartek Kmita; Lead Writer, Joshua Rubin; and host, Malik Forte and is set to debut Thursday, February 13th at 12:00pm Pacific Time. Watch the Outriders Reveal Stream at twitch.tv/squareenix.

“It’s incredibly exciting to finally reveal what we have been working on for the last four years,” said Bartek Kmita, Game Director at People Can Fly. “Outriders is our first game since leaving Epic Games, and has grown from an idea of the game we always wanted to make, to the most ambitious project People Can Fly has ever undertaken."

Outriders will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC in Holiday 2020. Outriders will also release on PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One family of devices.
Looks like some kind of generic Destiny clone. Pass.

Anthem Updates Put on Hold while BioWare Reboots Game
Feb 10, 2020 - 10:55 AM - by Evil Avatar

BioWare’s Anthem launched to poor reception from both critics and players, and after a flurry of early updates, the extensive content additions promised in the game’s roadmap continued to get delayed – and the eventual releases didn’t improve Anthem’s reception. After reports that BioWare was planning a full reboot for the game, studio general manager Casey Hudson has confirmed exactly that.

Hudson says the studio has “heard your feedback that Anthem needs a more satisfying loot experience, better long-term progression and a more fulfilling end game. So we recognize that there’s still more fundamental work to be done to bring out the full potential of the experience, and it will require a more substantial reinvention than an update or expansion.”

Seasonal content updates will end, though events and previous content will continue to cycle through as BioWare works on the next iteration of Anthem. Hudson says BioWare aims to “reinvent the core gameplay loop with clear goals, motivating challenges and progression with meaningful rewards – while preserving the fun of flying and fighting in a vast science-fantasy setting.

“To do that properly we’ll be doing something we’d like to have done more of the first time around – giving a focused team the time to test and iterate, focusing on gameplay first.”

  1. Birds of Prey $33.2/$33.2

Witchfire - the latest info
Feb 06, 2020 - 9:31 PM - by brandonjclark

Just over two years ago The Astronauts, creators of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, a narrative-driven game, surprised fans by releasing a teaser of their next game, a looter-shooter named Witchfire. Besides the teaser, the developer's didn't reveal much about the game at the time.

A year later, at the end of 2018, they followed up with another touchpoint on their current progress.

Flash forward to today, and Witchfire is starting to take shape.

Updates have become irregular, meaning we’re busy making the game. So that’s a good thing, I guess. On the other hand, we don’t want to work in a vacuum, so let me share some of the work we did in January.

Sam Raimi in Talks to Direct Doctor Strange 2
Feb 05, 2020 - 8:00 PM - by Evil Avatar

Sam Raimi, who helped launch the modern superhero movie with 2002’s “Spider-Man,” is in talks to direct “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” for Marvel Studios, Variety has learned.

Raimi replaces original director Scott Derrickson, who Variety reported on Jan. 9 had officially departed the project due to creative differences. Derrickson will remain as an executive producer. Raimi, meanwhile, will need to get up to speed before the film’s scheduled production start date in May.

Marvel had no comment.

After finishing his “Spider-Man” trilogy for Sony Pictures with 2007’s “Spider-Man 3,” Raimi’s output as a director slowed considerably, with just the horror pic “Drag Me to Hell” in 2009 and Disney’s “The Wizard of Oz” prequel “Oz the Great and Powerful” in 2013. Instead, he’s been busy as a producer, helping relaunch various horror franchises like “Poltergeist” and his own classic, “Evil Dead.”

This is something of a coup for both Raimi and Marvel, given Raimi’s reputation with comic book fans — 2004’s “Spider-Man 2” is still widely regarded as one of the best superhero movies ever made. And with 15 features to his name as a director — including the beloved horror trilogy “The Evil Dead,” “Evil Dead II,” and “Army of Darkness” — Raimi is also the most established filmmaker to join the Marvel Studios fold since the earliest days of the studio, when Kenneth Branagh and Joe Johnston respectively directed the first “Thor” and “Captain America” movies in 2011.

Hellpoint Launches April 16th
Feb 04, 2020 - 7:19 PM - by Evil Avatar

Hellpoint is an intense, dark sci-fi RPG set on a derelict space station orbiting an ominous supermassive black hole. Taking inspiration from games like Dark Souls and Dead Space and movies like Event Horizon and Hellraiser, Hellpoint is doubling down on co-op multiplayer (with both split-screen and online support) while immersing players in a twisted narrative involving Cosmic Gods, quantum physics, and extinct space civilizations.

The game is set in the aftermath of a massive quantum cataclysm called the Merge. You wake up on board the Irid Novo space station, a beacon of galactic cooperation and scientific exploration gone horribly wrong. What happens next will be solely determined by your choices.

Key Features

• Souls-like gameplay in a unique setting: Explore the derelict space station of Irid Novo and face bizarre enemies with a tight and unforgiving combat system.

• Occult space story: Blending science and fantasy, the intensely atmospheric dark sci-fi setting will keep you searching for answers.

• Dynamic World: The Quantic System acts as a dungeon master; slightly transforming the game world every time you die and triggering events as the station revolves around the black hole.

• Jump-in co-op and player-versus-player multiplayer: Ask a friend to press Start to join a couch co-op session or call for assistance online. Hellpoint offers a full, uninterrupted co-op story with shared loot drops.

• Split-screen support: The full Hellpoint experience is available in jump-in/jump-out split-screen multiplayer on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

For a third straight weekend in a row Sony's Bad Boys for Life topped the weekend box office, and continues to do so with ease, though it isn't as if the competition from a pair of newcomers was stiff.

Here is the Weekend Boxoffice Chart for the weekend of January 31st to February 2nd, 2020.
  1. Bad Boys for Life $17,6/$148.0
  2. 1917 $9.6/$119.2
  3. Dolittle $7.7/$55.2
  4. Gretel & Hansel $6.0/$6.0

Last Quarter EA Took In $993 Million In Microtransactions
Feb 01, 2020 - 4:14 PM - by BeardedSonOfNel

Via Gamespot
Gaming giant Electronic Arts reported earnings for its holiday quarter today, and the company performed ahead of expectations. In particular, revenue from EA's microtransaction bucket--called Live Services--reached nearly $1 billion. Another highlight was Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which performed above expectations.

As you can see in the chart below, EA made $993 million from live services during the quarter ended December 31. For the 12 months as a whole, EA made $2.835 billion from microtransactions. Have a look at the chart below to see all the numbers.

EA made a total of $1.593 billion in revenue for the quarter and $361 million in profit, so as you can see, microtransactions are very big business for EA. A major part of EA's microtransaction revenue comes from the Ultimate Team modes for EA's sports games, including FIFA, Madden, and NHL.

The Nintendo Switch has Surpassed 52 Million Lifetime Sales
Jan 31, 2020 - 7:43 AM - by Evil Avatar

Nintendo has sold 52.48 Switches since its 2017 launch, its quarterly earnings report revealed Thursday, bringing it beyond the Super Nintendo Entertainment System's (SNES) 49.1 million lifetime sales. Before the holidays, the hybrid console had sold 41.67 million units, meaning it saw a jump of 10.81 million over the last quarter.

Beating the SNES makes it the Japanese company's third-most-popular console. It has yet to topple the NES' 61.91 million sales and the Wii's 101.63 million. The Wii is the fourth best-selling console overall -- Sony's PS2 is the most successful with sales of 155 million.

A more detailed breakdown shows that, of the 52.48 million Switches sold, the standard version of the console made up 47.3 million units and the more compact, portable-only Switch Lite (which came out in September 2019) sold 5.19 million units.

Nintendo sold more than 830,000 Switches in the US over the Thanksgiving weekend alone, it said last month.

Wizards of the Coast Opens New Studio, Working on Sci-Fi Multiplatform RPG
Jan 30, 2020 - 7:29 PM - by Evil Avatar

Archetype Entertainment: Our Goal is to Create the Greatest Story-Driven Roleplaying Game in the World

Archetype Entertainment is a game development studio in Austin, Texas led by industry veterans from BioWare and other AAA studios. Founded in 2019, Archetype is an autonomous division of Wizards of the Coast. We are assembling a world-class team to build a multi-platform roleplaying game set in a new science fiction universe.

At Archetype, we believe there will always be a place for story-driven roleplaying games that put the player at the center of an epic personal narrative with impactful choices. We are building games that represent the diversity of our audience. We also believe that game studios should empower top developers and challenge them with ambitious projects that are shaped by a strong, clearly communicated creative vision.

“Archetype is a chance for us to build the type of roleplaying game that we love to play. Video games are a uniquely interactive medium. They allow us to give the player powerful choices that have real consequences on how the story unfolds.”

— James Ohlen, Head of Studio

“The tremendous opportunity and challenge we have in building a new world-class game studio isn't lost on us. We're leaning on the experience and talent of our entire team to create what we believe will be the next generation of acclaimed, narrative-driven roleplaying games.”

— Chad Robertson, General Manager

Located in Sunny Austin, TX

We chose Austin because it is a great place to live and work. Austin is the capital of Texas and is a fast-growing city with a vibrant music scene, cosmopolitan culture, a world-class university, and scenic rolling hills. It was recently voted the #1 place to live in America for the third year in a row — based on affordability, job prospects, and quality of life.
