Dungeons II takes a humorous approach to being the bad guy photo
Dungeons II takes a humorous approach to being the bad guy
by Alessandro Fillari

Being the bad guy has its perks. With an entire force of orcs, goblins, and other nasty creatures at your bidding, more gold you can count, and a near infinite supply of dark magic at your disposal -- it seems like you've got things pretty much handled in your conquest of the world. But fate seems to have other plans. And with a snarky disembodied voice mocking you and narrating your journey, it certainly looks like your quest for power will be a lot more difficult than you thought.

This is what you can expect in the upcoming sequel to Dungeons. During a private session at a press event by Kalypso Media, I got to spend some hands-on time with their upcoming Dungeon Keeping/RTS hybrid title Dungeons II, that aims to take a light-hearted and comedic approach to being the evilest villain in all the land.

PS4 online multiplayer will be free this weekend
by Jordan Devore

Weekends sure are good at going by too quickly. It's only Monday morning and I'm already wishing it were the end of the week. Sony isn't helping, either -- its unlocking online multiplayer for PlayStation 4 owners who aren't subscribed to PlayStation Plus this weekend.

Those users will gain access starting Friday, September 26 at 12:01am Pacific and it'll carry through Sunday, September 28 at 11:59pm Pacific. All you need to do to take part is log into your system during those times -- simple as that. What to play, though.

RollerCoaster Tycoon World is a return to form, features robust online modes and offline play photo
RollerCoaster Tycoon World is a return to form, features robust online modes and offline play
by Alessandro Fillari

Back at gamescom, Atari announced RollerCoaster Tycoon World, a new installment to the much-loved amusement park series. However, after a 10-year series hiatus from the PC and the debut of the polarizing RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, which was loaded with microtransactions and other annoyances, many had reservations about the potential for a brand new title.

But during a private showing of RollerCoaster Tycoon World at PAX Prime 2014, the developers along with the CEO of Atari, Fred Chesnais, were keen to show how it's a welcome return to what made the series great. Right from the get-go, the developers at Pipeworks and publisher Atari were adamant about the title being a little more accessible while still retaining the deep customization and park management system.

Still, returning to the classic formula was a challenge, and the folks involved were open to listening to the community about what they want for the next game.

How would you feel if your online opponent was secretly a bot? photo
How would you feel if your online opponent was secretly a bot?
by Jonathan Holmes

Yesterday I was playing Wii Sports Club Boxing online while contemplating stuff to talk about on this week's Sup Holmes. I thought I'd have a while to think, but I was wrong. I only had to wait like 3 seconds before I was thrown into a match. For the least popular mode of a game that I'm guessing hasn't even sold 750,000 yet, that's not too shabby. 

I got my butt kicked, so I jumped into another match. Again, it was just 3 seconds before I found a new opponent. Again, I got beat down (K.O'ed on the first fall!), so again I went looking for another a new challenger. Again, I was paired up quickly, but this time I won. After that I cut my losses and went back to training mode. Sometimes its best to quit while you're ahead. 

Now I'm not accusing Nintendo of anything here, but while punching those giant floating training mode plates, the thought crossed my mind that the person I just fake-assautled might not even be real. Maybe none of them were real. They did engage in a few exchanges with me using the games pre-set text dialogue system, but that's not exact solid proof of humanity. On top of that, all their Mii's were pretty generic, and their fighting styles were awfully similar to what you might find in CPU opponents in single player mode. Then again, in Wii Sports Boxing, there isn't a whole lot of strategy when you're not very good. It's pretty much just "Always Be Punching: The Game" (which tells you how rusty I am that I kept losing), regardless if you're fighting a the game's AI or some other flailing schlub like yourself. 

The question is, if Nintendo had set up some auto-play online opponents to give the illusion that you were taking on a "real" person, would that be a bad thing?
