  • Chinese gaming giant Tencent has implemented a number of new rules to govern the conduct of streamers playing its games online. “A number of live streaming sites and streamers have been banned in the past for hosting questionable content. There have also been regulations that prohibit the streaming of games that are not approved for sale in China.” However, Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad confirmed on Twitter that they will only apply to Chinese streamers. “There is a natural copyright relati

  • Get ready to cry havoc—a new gun is coming to King’s Canyon pic.twitter.com/w8LNa2GDWnFebruary 19, 2019Just a quick note: Respawn announced that it’ll be announcing a new gun for Apex Legends tomorrow, an unnamed rifle shown in the pixelated clip on Twitter above. My guess is that the gun will use energy ammo, given the electric blue particles shown in the tease, and the fact that only two of the 19 Apex Legends guns use this ammo type. The gun appears to fire rapidly, but I can’t tell if what I

  • In April 2009, Heroes of Newerth went into beta—the same month as League of Legends. LoL beat HoN out of beta by a few months, and Heroes of Newerth spent its first year costing $30 before going free-to-play. Despite its much smaller audience, Heroes of Newerth has impressively soldiered on for a decade, and has just announced what may be its last major patch. As spotted by Resetera, HoN’s latest patch notes state “At this moment in time, patch 4.7.3 is planned to be the final patch that contain

    Wadjet Eye’s last game Unavowed was a high point for the publisher, but back in 2015 they put out another well-received adventure game called Technobabylon—a cyberpunk mystery about a killer called “the Mind Jacker”. Here’s what Andy Kelly had to say about it in his review:”Wadjet Eye have been publishing old-style adventure games for years now, and this is one of their best releases. Developer Technocrat has created a cyberpunk world that, while riffing on a dozen other examples of the genre, m

    A YouTuber called The Easter Egg Hunter has lived up to his name with a dive into the secrets hidden in Far Cry New Dawn. Ubisoft’s post-apocalyptic follow-up to Far Cry 5 has a pretty goofy tone—this is the game that lets you have a wild pig as a companion, after all—and it’s no surprise that extends to the easter eggs. They include Sam Fisher’s outfit from Splinter Cell, a bobblehead version of Vaas from Far Cry 3, a bunch of photo mode poses that reference other Ubisoft games (the Assassin’s

  • We were a bit lukewarm on it, but Darksiders 3 looks like it’s performed as well as publisher THQ Nordic had hoped, and Darksiders remains one of the publisher’s key series. Elsewhere in the report, CEO Lars Wingefors also touched on the subject of distribution platforms and “new entrants”. “There is an ongoing shift in distribution platforms and technologies, involving both established companies and large new entrants. This will challenge established business models, make room for new business

  • A quickplay bug is reportedly sending low level players into Anthem’s climactic battle, just a wee bit underprepared. You can’t see the player’s level in the clip, but you can hear the new arrival saying that he hasn’t played the story mission yet. On Twitter, Larned notes that while this player did leave the mission, another player, this time level 2, did not. That doesn’t seem to be what’s happening in the clip above, however, as the quickplay player is clearly surprised to be there. Steven is

  • Over on the friendly Star Citizen forums, a player of the space sim asked, “Do you, as I, believe that RTX tech will save you devs so much work farther along and look absolutely spanking?” Ray tracing is the tech everyone’s talking about, whether it’s Nvidia planning to literally write the book on it or Battlefield 5 players trying to figure out if they can even see it. Meanwhile, if you want to see how it looks in Metro Exodus, here you go. “I expect, if we use it, it’ll be a massive headache a

  • Over the weekend a Fortnite Live event was held at Norfolk Showground—organized by an independent company called Exciting Events it should be noted, not Fortnite’s creator Epic Games. Here are some more of the comments from the event’s Facebook page. “This event was an absolute disgrace and shambolic, very poor and in no way what was on offer. You should be ashamed, this isn’t a fortnite event that’s just been used to lure people in.” The owner of Exciting Events told the Guardian, “We will take

  • Great moments in PC gaming are short, bite-sized celebrations of some of our favorite gaming memories. Once you gain the ability to control your jumps back and forth, it feels like you’re fighting with godlike powers. You’ve learned to wall run, but now you’re doing it in two realities, jumping back and forth to clear obstacles in one time or the other. Every wall running sequence, insane jump, and shootout is energized by the memory of the extremely cool stuff you’ve already done. It’s great in

  • Tekken 7’s next two DLC fighters, series favourite Julia Chang and The Walking Dead’s Negan, will both arrive on February 28, Bandai Namco has announced. It’s unusual for two DLC characters to arrive at once, something the development team makes light of at the end of the trailer, above. Julia Chang, who has appeared in every Tekken game since Tekken 3, has a fairly compact fighting style consisting of solid kicks, punches and slams, with some acrobatics thrown in. The pair mark the eighth and n

  • I had no idea Demon’s Tilt was a thing until Wes Fenlon told me he was playing it and now it’s on my wishlist. I went through a phase of being obsessed with it back in the day, and thanks to Quakespasm letting me play it with widescreen and modern mouselook I’m enjoying it again. If anyone has any favorite Quake mods, let me know. One of you mentioned getting into Morrowind and Tetris last week, which is a heck of a combo. Or are you trying Apex Legends and being shocked that there’s a new battl

  • If you loved the world of Amnesia: The Dark Descent but found it all too scary, then The Shadow of the Ramlord might be more your speed. It’s an hour-long Lovecraftian adventure built using assets from The Dark Descent and its sequel, A Machine for Pigs, and promises to be light on scares but heavy on environmental storytelling, atmosphere and necromancy. They say it’ll appeal to those who enjoyed SOMA, the semi-scary, philosophical survival horror from Frictional Games, the same developer that

  • Apex Legends already has one loveable robot, Pathfinder, but there’s plenty of room for another. Yesterday he gave an answer: he’s keen, and so is Respawn’s CEO Vince Zampella. I am also down.February 16, 2019Clearly, that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen, and there are plenty of other interested parties on both sides including Sony’s Columbia Pictures, which distributed the 2015 film. Chappie’s aesthetic isn’t too different to Pathfinder’s either, so I’m sure there would be a way to tie them t

  • Last week, we revealed all the Soviet divisions Eugen has designed for Steel Division 2, so this week it’s the opposition’s turn. Historically, the German line was demolished by the Soviet assault, but in Steel Division 2, the Axis can still field plenty of experienced, well-equipped troops. 5th Panzerdivision (German 5th Armoured Division)The German 5th Armoured Division has a lot of weight to throw around. 20th Panzerdivision (German 20th Armoured Division)The German 20th Armoured Division was

  • The chances of a new Dino Crisis appearing in the near future are probably pretty low, but if you’re still carrying a torch for Capcom’s dino survival horror romp, there’s finally a Resident Evil 2 mod that might scratch your itch, putting Dino Crisis’ Regina and Dylan into the remake. The Dino Crisis mod pack swaps Claire for Regina and Leon for Morton, and you can find some goodies—there are new weapons, including the Glock—waiting for you in the RPD main hall. It turns out Sherry is a Dino Cr

  • Crackdown 3 is out now, and players have already started tearing across the city. As well as the singleplayer campaign, you can team up with a mate and cause some mayhem in co-op, but there’s an unexpected caveat: the co-op campaign is locked at 30fps, even when both players are on PC. The singleplayer campaign doesn’t have the same restrictions—you can unlock the framerate—and it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Crackdown having crossplay. Microsoft claimed that the framerate wouldn’t b

  • Alfonso Ribeiro’s suit against 2K and Epic Games over the use of his character’s dance from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is facing a pretty significant obstacle. The US Copyright Office has refused his copyright registration. Since ‘The Carlton’ wasn’t already copyrighted, Ribeiro and his lawyers first had to register with the US Copyright Office. For copyright purposes, there’s a distinction between a dance and a choreographed work, and for a dance to be considered the latter, it needs a sufficient
