Put together by Rami Ismail, Meditations.games is a collection of games by over 350 developers. Each day is a new, unique game, and only available that day.
Its a great concept. I’d love to see the analytics by the end of the year, and just how many people will still be playing this.
The original Doom turns 25 this year, and to celebrate, its co-creater, John Remero made a new chapter to the original game, titled Sigil.
Sigil, according to the website, is an unofficial 5th episode to the game:
I wanted the levels to feel like they belong to the original game as if they were a true fifth episode. There’s more detail in the levels than episodes 1-4, but not overly so. I believe that people playing Sigil will recognize my design style, but see new things I’m doing becau
Joker from Persona 5 is joining the latest Super Smash Brothers as DLC. Now add Chie you cowards.
Seismic Games is best known for mobile game Marvel Strike Force, (something I had to do a bit of searching around to learn). Having a group of industry veterans with experience working on IP based games will hopefully provide a strong boost for Niantic’s upcoming Harry Potter game as well as Pokemon Go.
My favorite games of 2015.
2014 was a really weird year for games.
Overlooking a few potential game breaking bugs, Divinity is a charming homage to the classic RPG genre.
This year at PAX I had the chance to sit down and play with the Rift for a little while. Forget waving your hands around in front of the Kinect, or waving some peripheral around in the air.

Additionally, Chilton noted that Blizzard was warming to the idea of reconfiguring World of Warcraft as a free-to-play title.
I’ve always wondered how long until WoW went free-to-play. With their recent additions to their online store, and the dwindling population, I expect it’s now only a matter of time before we see a completely free version.

This might be the greatest game to the Oculus Rift yet.
The client will still remain active in games, but digital games can no longer be bought on Xbox.com, and whether or not DLC remains available is up to individual publishers. Still no word what the next generation of Xbox Live will bring to Windows 8.
An ambitious and rather impressive project to say the least. At some point though, you have to ask yourself if it would just be easier to build a 3rd person game engine in the likeness of Starcraft, outside of the Starcraft II client, rather than modding a real time strategy engine to function as a 3rd person game. A good comparison to this would be the popular Warcraft 3 mod Dota, and the stand alone game Dota2.
When you’re constructing a mod for a game, you’re limiting yourself to that game
