The Town That Dreaded Sundown Trailer
Sep 15, 2014 - 6:27 PM - by Emabulator

Quote:
65 years after a masked serial killer terrorized the small town of Texarkana, the so-called 'moonlight murders' begin again. Is it a copycat or something even more sinister? A lonely high school girl, with dark secrets of her own, may be the key to catching him.

METAL JESUS ROCKS!: Awesome Grafx
Sep 15, 2014 - 2:28 PM - by gzsfrk
If there's one thing we learned from 80s glam rock power house Cinderella, it's that investing in Aqua Net futures would never again be as profitable as it was in the late 80s. But if there was a second life lesson given to us by Keifer and Co., it's that you don't know what you've got till it's gone.

Such was certainly the case with the short-lived (state-side, at least) TurboGrafx-16 console. Looking at the retrogame collecting scene today, you'd think that the TG-16 was the halcyon console of our collective childhood, and not a largely unloved also-ran. Indeed, it's hard to imagine precisely why NEC's 16-bit entry into the US console race didn't take off the way the Genesis and Super Nintendo did. It had excellent graphics, incredible sound, an amazing portable, and some truly impressive and fun games. Such the power of marketing.

The Metal Jesus has nothing but love for this fourth generation fan favorite. In this week's episode of MJR!, he teams up for a second time with PCE super fan Carlos to share 10 more of the greatest games ever crammed onto a credit-card sized cartridge.




A friend of mine just dropped $300 for a Turbo Duo R. Oh, the possibilities with that one...

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Heading to Xbox 360 and PS3
Sep 15, 2014 - 11:03 AM - by Emabulator

Game Informer has the story.

Quote:
Activision has announced a new partnership with Torn Banner Studios to bring Chivalry: Medieval Warfare to consoles this fall. The melee-focused, 12-player action game will be arriving on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 via digital delivery.

Over two million copies of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare have been sold on PC, taking familiar online first-person combat in a new direction. Instead of guns and rocket launchers though, players take up swords, axes, bows, and arrows.

Mojang Purchased by Microsoft
Sep 15, 2014 - 6:14 AM - by Evil Avatar

Mojang's Owen Hill has posted that the studio has been purchased by software giant Microsoft for 2.5 BILLION dollars. Creators and Developers Markus Persson, Carl Manneh and Jakob Porser are leaving the company.

Quote:
Yes, the deal is real. Mojang is being bought by Microsoft.

It was reassuring to see how many of your opinions mirrored those of the Mojangstas when we heard the news. Change is scary, and this is a big change for all of us. It’s going to be good though. Everything is going to be OK. <3

Please remember that the future of Minecraft and you – the community – are extremely important to everyone involved. If you take one thing away from this post, let it be that.

We can only share so much information right now, but we’ve decided that being as honest as possible is the best approach. We’re still working a lot of this stuff out. Mega-deals are serious business.

The Falcon & Yondu Coming to Disney Infinity
Sep 14, 2014 - 5:53 AM - by Evil Avatar

Disney Interactive sends along word that Yondu from the Guardians of the Galaxy and a classic version of Captain America's partner The Falcon are heading to Disney Infinity 2.0

Quote:
Yondu: From deepest space comes Yondu, leader of the outlaw band known as the Ravagers. Whether he’s trying to outwit the Guardians of the Galaxy or face off against a squadron of Sakaarans, Yondu will do anything to come out on top. With his whistle-powered flying arrow and devastating combat skills, Yondu is truly a force to be reckoned with. He will be playable in both the Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set and Toy Box 2.0. Yondu will also be making an appearance in the Marvel Team-Up: Yondu Power Disc. When players place the Power Disc on the Disney Infinity base, they can fight alongside the powerful, arrow-shooting ally, and send enemies running for their lives.

Falcon: Pararescue veteran Sam Wilson, codename Falcon, soars into Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes. As Captain America’s closest ally, Falcon’s an indispensible addition to the Marvel’s Avengers Play Set and Toy Box 2.0. With his EXO-7 wing pack and Hardlight Feathers, evil doesn’t stand a chance against his aerial assaults. Other characters can also fly like Falcon when players use the Falcon’s Wings Power Disc.

Disney Infinity 2.0
launches September 23rd on the PS4, Xbone, PS3, 360 and Wii U.

Rumor: Microsoft is Testing Playing Xbox Games in PC Browsers
Sep 13, 2014 - 6:01 AM - by Emabulator

Neowin is reporting that Microsoft is testing out playing Xbox games in a PC browser.

Quote:
Microsoft is testing out playing games in your browser and not just any games. We're talking Xbox games - and not just last-generation titles either. In fact, even Xbox One titles are currently said to be in the works too.

And don’t think this is some watered-down experience; one source told us that he thought the experience was right around 60FPS, while another stated that this is going to be the company’s next killer gaming feature.

The Xbox 360 games offer up the full experience, including the dashboard running in the browser too. So don't think this is some hacked together project, this is the real deal. The product, as it stands right now, has Xbox branding and works outside the walls of Microsoft.

Destiny Reviews
Sep 12, 2014 - 7:46 PM - by Emabulator

Worthplaying - 8.5/10

Quote:
Destiny suffers from a serious case of rough edges. A number of elements, from the repetitive mission design to a weak early game, are a lot rougher than expected from an otherwise polished game. There isn't one glaring problem that detracts from the experience, but a number of minor issues hurt the game. Beneath those flaws lies an extremely enjoyable MMO-styled shooter that plays excellently, looks great, is extremely addictive, and has a strong and varied endgame. Destiny makes a strong impression on anyone who's willing to give it the time. It may not be the game-changer that Halo was, but Destiny is a strong game in its own right.
GameSpot - 6/10

Quote:
You might summarize Destiny by the way in which it wraps up its story. Once the final, hackneyed closing scene finishes, fireteam members are awarded the same weapon, regardless of class, and a handful of currency. This reminder of how wholly unspecial you are is the big finale of a lavishly produced but troubled game that excels in the basics but lacks creativity and heart. It is role-playing grind in shooter form--an empty house built on a firm foundation.
Giant Bomb - 3/5

Quote:
But, yeah, its fantastic graphics often serve to make the game's mechanical underpinnings that much more disappointing. There are cool little flashes of brilliance in Destiny, but a lot of it feels like a game designed by people who weren't sure what sort of game they were designing. Is it a loot shooter? Sort of, but the loot isn't very good. Is it an MMO? No, but you'll occasionally encounter other players out in the field. A story-driven shooter like the Halo franchise? Sure, if you don't mind digging through the developer's website to find those little bits of lore. Clans? Again, they exist on the website but don't surface in-game in a meaningful way. The pieces are there, but too many of them feel malformed or half-realized to make Destiny recommendable. If you're interested in this sort of game, you may wish to wait and see what Bungie does in the months ahead before spending any money.
The Escapist - 3/5

Quote:
Propped up by a very strong multiplayer mode, and with some co-op challenges that can be quite fun, Destiny did do enough to keep me playing until I beat the story and leveled up, but beyond that, the thought of the lengthy, grinding post-game stuff makes me feel more exhausted than excited. At the very least, the online component has been holding up impressively despite the huge amounts of people playing it, and with so many folks believing the hype and chomping at the bit to play, I guess it doesn't matter how bland the game may be - we're all sucking it down regardless.

Bottom Line: With its banal universe and flavorless style, Destiny is packed with content, but just ... well ... content. There's a great PvP mode, and the leveling system can be rewarding, but nonetheless this is a pretty, rock-solid, ultimately pedestrian product.

Recommendation: If you want a stable and populated FPS MMO, this will do the job with minimal fuss. For all my complaints, I did waste a lot of time with it, and will likely continue to do so, so it's indeed doing something to hook folks. I wouldn't buy into the hysterical hype though.

Details on Destiny's September In-Game Events
Sep 12, 2014 - 7:15 AM - by Evil Avatar

Bungie has posted an infographic, with a few hints and teasers for Destiny's planned September in-game events.

Quote:
The first of the events is named Salvage, and will be running from September 12-14. It will feature small to medium sized maps in a 3v3 setting, with guardians fighting "to claim and salvage relics" while disrupting enemy probes. Rewards include Crucible gear, marks, and reputation.

The second event, Vault of Glass, opens from September 16 and is a level 26 raid. Description of the event is vague: "No one knows what lies within the Vault of Glass, only that beyond its gates you will face your greatest challenge yet." Rewards include raid set gear and Ascendant materials.

Details for the remaining events are even more ambiguous. The events named Combined Arms and Queen's Wrath are scheduled for September, and described respectively with the tagline "Pilot the machines of war" and "Accept her orders. Settle old scores."

The last announced event, Iron Banner, will kick off in October and has the tagline "Champions are born in battle."
Thanks, Gamespot.

SimBin Goes Bankrupt; Respawns as Sector 3 Studios
Sep 11, 2014 - 12:02 PM - by Emabulator

Develop is reporting that racing sim developer SimBin has gone bankrupt and reformed as Sector 3 Studios.

Quote:
Swedish developer SimBin Studios has gone bankrupt, former COO Christopher Speed has told Develop.

He said the company had “decided to go through a re-structuring process and the easiest way to do this was through a bankruptcy”. In total 18 staff were affected.

Following the bankruptcy proceedings Speed has formed a new company named Sector 3 Studios, which will continue to work on RaceRoom Racing Experience.

He claimed development of the title will not be affected by recent proceedings, and the studio has just released a new update for the title.

“I formed Sector 3 to first try and keep as much of the talent SimBin employed as possible,” he said.

“I also believe in RaceRoom Racing Experience as a product and the surrounding commercial ventures that were spawning from it.”
