Report: Warner Knew Batman: Arkham Knight for PC was in a "Horrible State" #Batman
Jul 01, 2015 - 12:42 PM - by Emabulator

VG247 has the story.

Quote:
Speaking with Kokatu under the condition of anonymity, the sources stated there were only 10 testers assigned to the title, where are there were over 100 on the QA team for the console versions. One reason for the larger QA team for the PS4 and Xbox One versions was due to “getting it to work on consoles was impossible for months.”

“It’s pretty rich for WB to act like they had no idea the [PC] game was in such a horrible state,” said on of the PC testers. “It’s been like this for months and all the problems we see now were the exact same, unchanged, almost a year ago.”

Reportedly, some testers found up to 100 bugs per day with the developers fixing “what they could” as crunch time was in full force. Once main features were implemented, bug fixing became a priority, but due to the game being finished, in order to catch up testers were restricted as to what they “can or can’t bug, to ensure that [the devs] can catch up.”

Another source stated bug-checking was set at 720p, which tended to perform better than when played at higher resolutions. So, instead of contracting bug testing out to company’s specializing in PC testing on a variety of hardware configurations, Warner kept testing in-house.

The source said this was due to concerns that issues with the PC version would leak.

Notch has left the building, as they say, but the Minecraft machine just keeps on printing money. The sales counter at Minecraft.net broke the 20 million mark today, and that's just on the PC.

The moment was commemorated by Mojang's Patrick Geuder, who tweeted a photo of other Mojang employees taking photos of the Big Two-Oh. Amazingly, that number is on top of the 20 million copies sold across Xbox platforms, which as Gamespot reported was achieved in May.

Impressions of Brutal Doom #Doom #BrutalDoom
Jul 01, 2015 - 8:56 AM - by sai tyrus

I've been playing the insane mod, Brutal Doom, which makes a lot of changes to our beloved bloody shooter:

Quote:
Brutal Doom brings many familiar modern conventions to the title, with the ability to aim-down-sights (ADS), jump, dodge, and even adds some new weapons enemy behavior. Oh, and the ridiculous gore of the original has been dialed up to about ten. It’s so over the top, it’s downright laughable.

Creed Trailer #Stalone #creed #Creedmovie
Jun 30, 2015 - 6:59 PM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
From Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema comes award-winning filmmaker Ryan Coogler’s “Creed.” The film explores a new chapter in the “Rocky” story and stars Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone in his iconic role. The film also reunites Coogler with his “Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed.

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.

With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?

Australia Has Banned Over 200 Games in Four Months #GamerGate
Jun 30, 2015 - 5:11 PM - by Emabulator

The Escapist is reporting that the Australian government has "refused classification to more computer games in the past four months than in the previous two decades."

Quote:
An estimated 220 online games have been refused classification in Australia in the past four months, in contrast to only about 50 that were refused between 1994 and 2014. According to an ABC Australia report, the sharp increase in Refused Classification (RC) online games results from a new classification method implemented by the Classification Board.

On March 10, the Australian Classification Board announced a new trial that focused on the classification of online games. "The Minister for Justice has announced that Australia has joined the International Age Rating Coalition (IARC)," the notice reads. "IARC is a partnership of government and industry content classification authorities from around the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe and Brazil."

"The Minister also announced that Australia is preparing to trial IARC's new tool for classifying mobile and online games."

The pilot will officially commence on July 1.

"Due to the online explosion, there are hundreds of thousands - if not millions - of games currently available online," a spokesperson from the Attorney-General's Department said. "It is not realistic or practicable for the Classification Board to manually classify each of them."
Not So Fun Fact: Saints Row IV is banned in Australia.

Destiny's New Iron Banner Having Some Issues #Destiny #Bungie
Jun 30, 2015 - 3:27 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the gory details.

Quote:
Destiny's limited-time Iron Banner multiplayer event returned today, but things didn't go exactly to plan.

Players are reporting experiencing the "Anteater" error, which is kicking them from matches. Not only that, but Bungie says Iron Banner gains are not always applying as they should.

The developer is looking into these issues, and asks players to "stand by" for updates.

"We are actively investigating reports that Iron Banner gains are not being granted after matches," Bungie wrote on Twitter at 11:52 AM PDT, under two hours after Iron Banner went live at 10 AM PDT.

The "gains" that Bungie is referring to are new Iron Banner rewards, which include a Pulse Rifle called Skorri's Revenge, among other gear.

Rumors on Visceral's Star Wars Game Emerge #StarWars #1313
Jun 30, 2015 - 1:13 AM - by sai tyrus

PC Gamer has the story:

Quote:
Voice actor Nolan North revealed some titbits about the game during a panel at Metrocon, which was recorded and posted online here. He doesn't appear to be lending his throat to Visceral's game, but he does seem to know a fair bit about it: according to North, it's styled after the Uncharted series. As Uncharted writer Amy Hennig is working on the game, that's not entirely surprising.

"If you're a big fan of Amy Hennig and her style of story, she's gone to EA and is going to reboot a brand new Star Wars franchise in the style of Uncharted," North said, while talking about Hennig's departure from Naughty Dog. "I happen to know a lot about it and it's going to be awesome."

When asked if Visceral's still-unannounced game was a revived Star Wars 1313, North replied that it was "different" but "along the same lines".
Visceral's upcoming Star Wars game is rumoured to be open world, but we still barely know anything about it.

Star Citizen FPS Module Delayed #StarMarine #StarCitizen
Jun 30, 2015 - 1:07 AM - by sai tyrus

Via the Star Citizen Blog:

Quote:
When will we see Star Marine? Tonight, I don’t have an absolute answer for you. What I will tell you is that we know exactly what we have to do, and we’re already well on our way to doing it. With allocation of additional resources and increased cross-studio focus on the FPS portion of the game we are on our way… we’re just not there quite yet. I’m confident that with the significant updates and changes to the backend architecture discussed above that we will have an experience worthy of the Star Citizen name; it’s just going to take some additional integration and testing. On the public side, I know that it’s time to open up our communications on the Star Marine rollout process: starting with this message and continuing each week, we will provide a high level update on the challenges just as we did for Arena Commander.

We ended the 2012 pledge campaign with ‘The Pledge,’ in which I outlined our new company’s goals to be open about our process. Today, I want to rededicate ourselves to this: I can’t promise you we’ll meet every internal deadline or that every decision we make is something you’ll agree with. There will be challenges that we struggle to overcome, and we will never be able to predict all of these with certainty…but I can promise you we will keep you informed and that we will not stop working until the game is done right. After all, that’s why we’re here in the first place. Your support is letting us create the game we want to make before anything else. Because of you, we have the freedom to make sure things work the way we want, even if it takes more time and more effort. We won’t let you down!

Mojang closing Scrolls #Scrolls
Jun 30, 2015 - 12:57 AM - by sai tyrus

Via PC Gamer:

Quote:
Scrolls, Mojang's collectible card/strategy game, is no more. The studio announced today that the game "can no longer sustain continuous development," and while it promised to keep the servers running until at least July of 2016, no new features or card sets will be added.

The studio implied that smaller updates may still be forthcoming, however, as it is "planning to keep a close eye on game balance." It will also remain available for purchase "for the time being," with funds going to keep Scrolls online and playable for as long as possible.

"We’ve had a great time working on Scrolls, and appreciate every last player who’s downloaded our game," Mojang wrote. "Extra big thanks to the most dedicated members of our community; some of you have logged in almost every day since release and dedicated a large portion of your time to dominating the leaderboards and taking care of new players."

Rebellion working on Battlezone 1998 Remaster #Battlezone
Jun 29, 2015 - 6:52 PM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
An open letter to Battlezone fans

Dear Battlezone fans

Firstly, thank you so much for all the great feedback we’ve received following the unveiling of our Battlezone reboot for virtual reality devices.

Having to keep quiet about something we’re crazy excited for has been a challenge, so to finally showcase it at E3 and see so many people just as excited for the game was really gratifying.

As our teaser trailer revealed, our VR version of Battlezone is very much a reboot of Atari’s 1980 arcade classic, a game we’re very fond of at Rebellion. However, we also know that a number of you are fans of the 1998 and 1999 Battlezone games released by Activision that re-imagined the franchise as a groundbreaking hybrid of FPS and RTS gameplay. Naturally when we made our announcement last week some of you asked, “But what about the newer Battlezone games? What are you doing with them?”

Well, we’ve read your comments, articles, emails and posts and we’ve seen your love for these games – so we wanted to make another brief announcement:

We’re very pleased to reveal that we’re also working on a remaster of the 1998 Battlezone for PC.

It’s still early days but when we’re ready to show you more you’ll be the first to know. All we can say for now is that whichever vision of Battlezone you love, you’ve not been forgotten!

Thanks for reading, The Rebellion team

Halo 5: Guardians Dev Explains How Microtransactions Work in Multiplayer #Halo5
Jun 29, 2015 - 4:06 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
343 already promised that only cosmetic items would be allowed in the game's Arena multiplayer mode, but some fans questioned the inclusion of gear and vehicle REQ Packs in the Warzone mode. In a community question and answer on the Halo Waypoint website, the developer has clarified that there are systems in place to prevent Warzone from becoming pay-to-win.

When asked about the packs, designer Josh Holmes explained that these items will not be immediately deployable in a multiplayer match. Rather, players have to kill enemies and achieve objectives to gain enough "energy" to use them.

"Deployment of REQ items is limited by the REQ Level and Energy systems that govern the Warzone experience," Holmes wrote. "Each REQ item costs a certain amount of Energy to deploy. Everybody starts at REQ Level 1 at the beginning of each match and you gain levels based on your actions in the game."

He continued: "Capturing bases, killing AI, taking out AI Bosses and killing enemy players will help you level up within the match. The more powerful the REQ, the more energy you need to deploy it--so, for example, you can spend two energy points to deploy a Warthog or save up until you reach REQ Level 5 and spend all of your energy to deploy a more powerful Banshee. Energy replenishes at a set rate over time, and you gain a bonus energy point every time you level up."

He also clarified the different tiers of REQ Packs available to purchase. "Players will be able to redeem Requisition Points for three different tiers of REQ Packs in the game: Bronze, Silver and Gold. We also offer Premium tier packs as part of the [special editions] of the game. Each level of REQ Pack determines the quality of the REQs inside. For example, a Gold REQ Pack has a chance of including Legendary requisitions, while a Bronze REQ Pack does not."

X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut Movie Clip #XMen
Jun 29, 2015 - 11:22 AM - by Emabulator

Quote:
In the theatrical release of "X-Men: Days of Future Past," the future X-Men had to overcome overwhelming odds in order for Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) into the past, so that he could warn a young Professor X (James MacAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) about the dire consequences of the Sentinel Program. In the upcoming Rogue Cut of that film, Kitty gets swapped out for Rogue (Anna Paquin) due to as-of-yet unknown circumstances, and the first scene from that extended cut has just been released.

In this first clip from "X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut," an aging Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) must force Rogue out of a deep slumber for their cause. She is in what appears to be a Cerebro-like room; when she regains consciousness, she becomes startled when she sees Magneto, which hints that they may have had a falling out shortly before she ended up where she was in the clip.

Mod Allows you to play as other characters in Arkham Knight #ArkhamKnight
Jun 29, 2015 - 4:10 AM - by sai tyrus


Red Hood plays for keeps.

Via PCGamesN:

Quote:
The Batman: Arkham Knight Playable Characters mod makes Red Hood, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Robin, Azrael, Bruce Wayne, Catwoman, Commissioner Gordon, the Joker, and GCPD Officer Owens available to play as instead of Batman. You can see them all in action in the video above. The mod only works for free-roaming Gotham City.

You can download the mod here, and instructions for installing are in the YouTube video description. Remember this isn’t a Steam Workshop mod, so backup your files, and do so at your own risk.

Of course, you’ll only want to install the mod provided you’re one of very few people who actually have Batman: Arkham Knight running acceptably on your system. Thanks to a disastrous launch filled with bugs and glitches, Arkham Knight has been withdrawn from sale, and you can get a refund on the game from Steam should you wish.

Heroes vs Villains Mode rumored to return in #Battlefront #StarWarsBattlefront

Via PC Gamer:

Quote:
We know that EA's upcoming, annoyingly numberless Star Wars Battlefront will feature playable goodies and baddies including Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader—but what we don't know is whether the celebrated Heroes vs Villains mode will return from Battlefront 2. Well, I say we don't know that, but we kind of do now, thanks to the Spanish version of the official website. It's just blabbed some or all of the multiplayer modes that will be included in the game: Supremacy, Fighter Squadron, Blast, Drop Zone, Cargo and Heroes vs Villains.

Redditor thementorassassin16 noticed said blabbing, translating it from the Spanish thusly:

"In addition to Walker Assault, Star Wars Battlefront will feature immersive, fun-filled multiplayer modes including Supremacy, Fighter Squadron, Blast, Drop Zone, Cargo, and Heroes vs Villains mode, that will be announced in the months ahead. Stay tuned for more information on these exciting multiplayer modes."

Batman: Arkham Knight PC Patch Released #Batman
Jun 27, 2015 - 5:55 PM - by Emabulator

Warner Bros. and Rocksteady Studios have released the first patch for the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. GameSpot has the details.

Quote:
Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Rocksteady have released a patch for the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight which fixes a bug that disabled the game's rain effects and other issues, the companies have announced.

Warner Bros. Community Admin Yorick said that the patch is being released now, and that the companies will continue to release interim patches while it continues to work on improving performance issues the game suffered from since it launched on PC last week.

Updates in the first patch include:
  • Fixed a crash that was happening for some users when exiting the game
  • Fixed a bug which disabled rain effects and ambient occlusion. We are actively looking into fixing other bugs to improve this further
  • Corrected an issue that was causing Steam to re-download the game when verifying the integrity of the game cache through the Steam client
  • Fixed a bug that caused the game to crash when turning off Motion Blur in BmSystemSettings.ini. A future patch will enable this in the graphics settings menu
"Rocksteady is leading our team of developers and partners as we work on the PC performance issues that players have been encountering," Warner Bros. said. "The work is significant and while we are making good progress on improving performance, it will take some time to ensure that we get the right fixes in place "

Developer Digital Extremes has decided to add four emotes to its third-person shooter, Warframe, for free. This announcement comes just two days after Bungie revealed that it was selling a pack of three emotes and some in-game items for $20 for its shooter, Destiny.

Warframe, the free-to-play shooter that initially launched on PC in 2012 and later for PlayStation 4, is getting several new ways for players to express themselves. Players now will be able to shrug and clap, adding a new layer to interactions in-game. They will also be able to do two moves that look like martial arts stances, the Eclipse Narta and the Fathom Narta.

This announcement follows Bungie's announcement that three emotes, some shaders, and three class items would be sold in a $20 pack. Developer Bungie first stated that several emotes and other in-game items would be exclusive to people who buy the Collector's Edition of Destiny's upcoming expansion, The Taken King. This edition comes bundled with the base game and the first two expansions as well as the new content. Following backlash, Bungie stated that it would be making the several Collector's Edition items available for a separate purchase.

Fallout 4 Pre-order Paid With Bottle Caps #Fallout4
Jun 25, 2015 - 9:30 PM - by sai tyrus

Via PC Gamer:

Quote:

It's the kind of idea we all wish we'd come up with: A fellow named Seth placed a preorder for Fallout 4 directly from Bethesda Softworks, paying for it entirely with bottle caps. He boxed up roughly 2240 of them, "everything I've been able to save since I played Fallout 3 for the first time," and while he wasn't really sure about the caps-to-dollars exchange rate, he said he hoped his post on Imgur would become popular enough that "their PR department will be too nervous to turn me down."

"Fallout 3 was my favorite game for several years, so I made the rational choice to start saving up bottle caps. Turns out 4.5 years of undergrad and 3 years in a Master's program leads to a lot of drinking," he wrote. "It ended up being 11.2 pounds of bottle caps. You don't want to know how much it cost to ship it to Maryland."

Yesterday, his gambit paid off. He received an email from Matt Grandstaff, Bethesda's global community lead, with a photo of the opened boxes of caps, a complaint that his office smells like beer, and a promise that Seth would receive a copy of the game in November because he's "the first person to do this"—the obvious implication being that anyone else who tries it won't be so lucky.

"I just wanted to say 'thank you' to everyone who helped in making this happen," Seth wrote in a follow-up. "People were simultaneously worried about my rate of drinking (I'm fine, thanks), and were also disappointed in my lack of drinking (I'm fine, thanks). Someone on imgur even offered to gift me a copy of the game if I didn't get one."

For those not in the know, and thus missing out on the joke, bottle caps are the standard currency in the Fallout universe. Grandstaff said he would deposit the payment at the People's Bank of Point Lookout.

Northmen - A Viking Saga - Official Trailer #EdSkrein #TomHopper #ActionMovie
Jun 25, 2015 - 3:28 PM - by Emabulator

Quote:
NORTHMEN – A VIKING SAGA tells the story of a group of Vikings in the ninth century who set sail for Britain, aiming to plunder the rich monasteries in the northern part of the island. But a storm smashes the ship to pieces on the rocks off the coast of Scotland, the only part of Britain without any Viking settlements. Soon thereafter, the daughter of the Scottish King falls into their hands, and the Vikings see this as an opportunity to demand a large ransom. The King immediately sets his "wolfpack"—a group of mercenaries well-known for their savagery—on the Vikings. The “Northmen” with their hostage now have to force their way through the rough highlands, where they meet the brave and mysterious Christian monk Conall (Ryan Kwanten). Having the wolfpack close on their heels, a desperate race against time begins. A battle over life and death...

Confederate Images and Gaming
Jun 25, 2015 - 9:54 AM - by Terran

Apple has pulled all games from their App Store with Confederate Flag symbols/imagery. This follows in a flurry of activity, with the National Parks System, Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and perhaps others pulling all content with confederate symbols associated with them.

Quote:
In an email to the game creators, Apple said the apps were pulled because they contained "images of the Confederate Flag used in offensive and mean-spirited ways," according to Andrew Mulholland of HexWar Games.
Apple cited its app Store review guidelines: "Apps containing references or commentary about a religious, cultural or ethnic group that are defamatory, offensive, mean-spirited or likely to expose the targeted group to harm or violence will be rejected."
This includes Civil War games (Apple). Kind of tough to make a Civil War game without the symbols of one side, eh? And since we're so busy censoring terrible symbols and imagery, what about Nazi images still up and available on all of those sites? Where exactly does it end? Some hashtag recommendations for the politically correct wing of American life:

Bungie's Answer to The Taken King: Charge even more! #Destiny #Bungie
Jun 24, 2015 - 6:47 PM - by Evil Avatar

Following a backlash from gamers over the emotes and armor shaders only available in the sold-out collector's edition of The Taken King, Bungie has posted a weekly update with a solution... they intend to charge even more money!

Now, if you purchase the $40 digital edition you can purchase the armor shaders and emotes for $20 extra. Bringing the total to $60, only a few dollars less than a collector's edition you can't even purchase.

Way to save face on that one, Bungie.

For Honor - Inside Dominion Mode Video #ForHonor
Jun 24, 2015 - 3:22 PM - by Emabulator

Quote:
For Honor's multiplayer skirmishes between knights, samurai and Vikings are more than just bloody spectacle – they're also a refreshingly fast and complex approach to medieval warfare, combining melee crowd-battles; duels that require intense focus and quick thinking; and the battlefield rhythms of a multiplayer shooter. It's a blend that really shines in Dominion mode, which challenges four-knight teams to capture and hold control points while slashing each other to ribbons. For a better idea of how Dominion works, we went straight to Gameplay Designer Bio Jade Adam Granger, who shed light on some of the mode's intricacies, as well as For Honor's three factions and the Art of Battle system that drives its swordplay.

Dying Light Dev Makes Fun of Destiny's Red Bull-Exclusive Quest #DyingLight
Jun 24, 2015 - 1:39 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
This morning, Destiny publisher Activision announced a new deal with Red Bull, making a quest in the upcoming Taken King expansion exclusive to people who buy specific cans of the drink. Now, Dying Light developer Techland has responded with a satire of the Destiny ad.

The developer wrote on Twitter, "We're jumping on the latest trend in game marketing!" This caption is accompanied by a picture imitating the Destiny advertisement from the Red Bull site. Techland's picture encourages players to drink water, proclaiming water is "delicious and great for your health," a clear shot at the energy drink. The picture also states that if you take a picture while drinking water and tag it with the hashtag "DrinkRightDyingLight," you'll get a code for premium weapons.
