In concept, it was a great idea to have a hidden high level code editor right there on a console as an easter egg. But in practice, this opens the console up to a slew of exploits. there’s no saying what kind of system access the editor really has, and players that do not know how to read code could potentially brick their systems. Nintendo made the right call to remove it.
I’ve had a Steam account long enough to know how annoying Steam can be. It started out terrible, got better, then somewhere around the time of trading cards, music player, and other useless features, its started to turn to shit. It does have some great features for everyone though; Steam workshop and game forums for example. Epic isn’t even trying to compete in these areas, making it clear they arent trying to make a better platform, they’re just trying to steal users.
With worsening PC platfo
No Man’s Sky Online includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognisable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO – it won’t require a subscription, won’t contain microtransactions, and will be free for all existing players.
All for free too. It may have took some time, but the game is finally delivering on ever
Google is shutting down its Emmy Award-winning VR film division, Spotlight Stories, after six years of building out content
Between this and they’re Daydream platform not being updated for over a year, it’s clear Google is exiting VR. A shame, because projects like Spotlight Stories highlighted the notion that VR can be used for other forms of entertainment besides just video games.
It is many years into the future. A wealthy and powerful person (or persons) has claimed a rare and much sought after prize: the “vault” of 200 unreleased (this is real!) songs from renowned Canadian pop artist, Carly Rae Jepsen. Hired by an anonymous sponsor, your team of highly trained individuals will raid a well-defended location to retrieve said item. From planning to set-up to execution, you will see this heist through to its completion, whether that be a success or failure. There will
“The world thinks we’re making Titanfall 3 and we’re not – this is what we’re making,” he said. “To try and convince a skeptical audience for months with trailers and hands-on articles, we’re just like, ‘Let the game speak for itself’ – it’s the most powerful antidote to potential problems. We’re doing a free to play game, with essentially loot boxes, after we were bought by EA, and it’s not Titanfall 3. It’s the perfect recipe for a marketing plan to go awry, so why have that – let’s just sh
Since the inception of Substance, our technology and tools have evolved to make 3D creation accessible to artists of every stripe. In Adobe, we’ve found a great partner who shares our love of creation and our drive for innovation and growth.
As someone who used to be a heavy user of pretty much the entire Substance Suite, I have mixed feelings about this. One one hand, Substance software will be around for a lot longer. On the other hand, there’s this statement (emphasis by me):
Linux gamers who rely on Wine or native game clients will have a new option to play games thanks to the latest update. Valve’s fork of Wine, received a major update allowing users to choose to use Proton in place of games’ clients, in some cases providing new functionality such as controller support, better frame rates, or even better multiplayer support. Even better? It works with non steam titles.
Linux users still don’t have the same level of support as Mac or Windows users do, but with too
Beyond that, though, we’ve grown ever more aware of the problems with centralizing the internet. Traditional blogs might have swung out of favor, as we all discovered the benefits of social media and aggregating platforms, but we think they’re about to swing back in style, as we all discover the real costs and problems brought by such centralization.
Like I said a couple of weeks ago, blogging in 2018 was weird. As much as I loved what Medium could have been, I think we’re about to see a l
Shortly after announcing the game was going completely free after live development has ceased, Splash Damage also decided to release their original crowdfunding awards, one of which is a 300 page game design doc. I love reading these things.
Work in progress for something…Doomy.
“Unity has clarified to us that this change effectively makes it a breach of terms to operate or create SpatialOS games using Unity, including in development and production games,” Improbable said today.
As soon as I read the news earlier today about Unity’s decision regarding SpatialOS games, I knew it was only a matter of time before another engine partnered with them. I just wasn’t expecting them to put forth such an absurdly large amount of money.
Now maybe a portion of that can be u
