Another short video of the upcoming Phantom Brigade from Tetragon Works. It's still very early in development, but fans of the likes of Front Mission and XCOM should keep an eye on it.


If you're UK based and would like to see a government response over loot boxes, consider signing this petition


I'm still amazed an industry that needs people to buy games on day one continues to incentivise waiting before buying.


8bitdo have updated the firmware for their existing NES Classic Bluetooth receiver to support the SNES Classic. It's available from their support site, just look for Firmware v1.07


Looks like 8bitdo have a wireless controller bundle for the SNES classic with a SNES style controller and wireless dongle for about $25 SF30 2.4G


That really didn't take long. It's not even officially released yet and its file system has been dumped and transplanted to the NES classic.


Another little emulator box on IndieGoGo. This time with a CD drive and what looks like a pretty slick customised Kodi interface for games. Seedi - IndieGoGo


Here's a cool video on the 360s RRoD, more focused on how Microsoft handled it (miraculously without killing Xbox as a brand entirely) as opposed to the technical aspects.


In the UK you can get up to two years jail time for mistakenly selling a kid a scratch card or lottery ticket, and a year for inviting, causing or even permitting an under 18 to gamble.


Um, yeah there's an argument ingame lootboxes aren't gambling because you're winning things that can't be bought (and hence have no value), but this is just straight up gambling. And I doubt G2A have bothered making it compliant.


Well if we're not going to get a new Front Mission we'll just make it ourselves. Hell yes!


Just a bit more YouTube bullshit...


I love how committed Firaxis are to the dumb poster maker thing added in the XCOM 2 expansion.


Just tuned in to see the start of AngryJoes XCOM2 expansion play through. Squad wipe on the first mission. This is gonna be great.


So Holmes write the most shamelessly dishonest news piece I've seen in a long while and the response is to remove the comments? Why not just remove the article? It's bollocks anyway.


Managed to find some English gameplay of Valkyria Revolution on Youtube. I'm still not sold on the gameplay but the story seems interesting and the music sounds great.
