Sniper Elite 4 preview photo

Sniper Elite 4, now with more Assassin's Creed

For whatever reason -- perhaps through no fault of its own -- I can't help but see the workings of other games when I look at Sniper Elite. Rube Goldberg-lite environmental executions remind me of Hitman. Third-person stealth melee killing ...

 
 
Old piracy paid up photo

Diablo pirate pays up in person 19 years later

In a much more tender (than poop-suicide) end to the Game Developers Conference, at today's post-mortem talk on the first Diablo, writer Shivam Bhatt stepped up during the Q&A session of the talk to apologize to Diablo creator David Bre...

 
 
Ark poop, explained photo

Ark: Survival Evolved's poop button was a suicide alternative

Dino-themed survival sandbox Ark: Survival Evolved is a bit poop-obsessed, reaching Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain "Do it (Defecate)" heights of in-game feces. And while Ark's poop button is funny and even has resource use in the craf...

 
 
 
Frog Fractions 2? photo

This Frog Fractions promotional art is amazing

These stickers for Frog Fractions III (which is actually Frog Fractions VI in Japan) were found floating around GDC, and they might just be my favorite promotional materials ever. Of course, I'm still waiting on Frog Fractions II (also know...

 
 
The Witcher 3 photo

And the award for the GDC's Game of the Year goes to...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been crowned Game of the Year at this year’s GDC Awards. The RPG also received recognition with a Best Technology Award. It wasn’t the biggest winner of the ceremony, however; Sam Barlow’s Her ...

 
 
It's a magical night photo

Let's watch the 2016 IGF and GDC Awards right here, right now

The video game industry isn't done handing out awards for last year's titles. There are a pair of ceremonies happening tonight in San Francisco, one right after the other. First up, it's the Independent Games Festival Awards, hosted by Capy...

 
 
 
Stellaris release date photo

Space jam: Stellaris is out May 9

Paradox's space-is-the-place grand strategy game Stellaris has a firm release date, announced last night during the company's live-streamed event. It's beating Hearts of Iron IV out the gate by about a month, which apparently is not as big...

 
 
GDC VIDEO photo

We're in our pajamas talking GDC

If you're reading this in a timely manner it is Wednesday now. This video is from Monday night (or, technically, 2AM Tuesday morning). It's about our (me, Brett, Zack) first day at GDC. We were so, so tired. We still are. I am, right now. ...

 
 
Rock Band VR photo

Rock Band in VR is the best way to play alone

Faux-rocking in the living room has been a wildly popular pastime over the years, as Harmonix married the rhythm and party genres with Rock Band. So many people have fond memories of the franchise partly because they enjoy playing musician,...

 
 
Tyranny announced photo

Tyranny is Obsidian's new RPG in the Pillars-style

Now that it has been thoroughly expanded, Pillars of Eternity can be left to sit and digest while folks work on that Triple Crown achievement. In the meantime, though, Obsidian has a new game in the Pillars of Eternity style called Tyranny...

 
 
PlayStation VR photo

There will be a PlayStation VR bundle with a PS Camera

According to TechInsider, Sony will release a bundle containing the PlayStation VR headset, a PlayStation Camera, and a Move controller. A Sony rep confirmed the bundle for North American release, but did not mention a price window in ...

 
 
Everest VR photo

I just climbed Mount Everest in the middle of San Francisco

I still haven't had much exposure to VR. Last August, I used the Oculus Rift to high-five a dead alien (please read that and tell me I'm funny) and pluck bullets out of the air. I still remember those events as if they were physic...

 
 
We Are Chicago preview photo

We Are Chicago is a bit rougher than its namesake

We Are Chicago takes place in Chicago's south side. It is a city whose residents are besieged by violent crime, with homicide rates that make Los Angeles and New York look like Pleasantville. Much of that is confined to the gang-heavy south...

 
 
Strafe preview photo

Strafe might be the Spelunky of first-person shooters

One look at Strafe and its influences are obvious. The first-person shooter looks like a lot of first-person shooters. Quake, Doom, and Half-Life are a few titles that developer Pixel Titans grew up revering. Game director Thom Gl...

 
 
GDC 30 Live! photo

GDC 30, we in hair

'Ello 'ello 'ello. I'm an here in sunny San Francisco (as I am most of the time, on account of living here) with Brett Makedonski and Zack Furniss in tow for the 30th annual Game Developers Conference. I can't believe we've been covering th...

 
 
Oddworld: Soulstorm photo

Oddworld: Soulstorm is the Exoddus remake, set for 2017

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty did great justice to Abe's Oddysee. It took the already fantastic puzzle-platformer and made it friggin' gorgeous, up to today's resolution standards. It only made sense to do the same with the next game in Abe's sto...

 
 
GDC photo

So, what the hell's this GDC talk about?

When I am in San Francisco for GDC next month, I can tell you one talk that I won't attend. It's "Decoding programmatic demand for gaming: Good, better, programmatic!" Like the saying goes "Good, better, programmatic. Never let it rest unti...

 
 
IGF & GDC voting photo

Let's help pick the 2016 IGF Audience Award winner

Audience voting has begun for the 2016 Independent Games Festival Awards (vote here) and the 2016 Game Developers Choice Awards (and here). If you'd like to have a say in who claims the Audience Awards at next month's ceremonies, you just n...

The 2016 Independent Games Festival has figured out its finalists. The Seumas McNally Grand Prize will go to either Darkest Dungeon, Her Story, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, Mini Metro, Superhot, or Undertale. If you're a regular reader...
