    Fireside

    This looks cute. It's a new game available on the Switch and is also available on PC. It's more of a narrative adventure, where you are hiking through this world, and all the while you are tasked with helping people you meet on the way. It sounds like it's pretty simple, and more of a walking sim style game, but I feel there's a bit more to it than that. Check the trailer out for it below. You can also find it on steam here - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1722700/Fireside/
  2. It was recently revealed that Limited Run Games will be re-releasing the GEX trilogy through their LRG platform. This is just a re-release of these games, and isn't a remaster. I would have much preferred a remaster over this, but I suppose it's nice to have the option to play the classics as they were originally made. Hopefully they create a remastered set some day or even a remake/reboot. Preorders are opening up this fall.

    Saw the trailer earlier and gotta admit this looks pretty fun. It looks like a business management style game. Where you take control of businesses. Supposedly those businesses are restaurants and nightclubs. I kind of like management games like this, so I might check it out. Looks like it's coming out in 2025. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1488490/Nivalis/

    The Alters

    Has anyone heard of this one? It looks pretty interesting. It's a survival video game where you have to create alternate versions of yourself to help survive on an inhospitable planet. The idea sounds pretty cool.
  5. This is pretty cool news, a previously cancelled Xbox game, that was in the works since 2006. And was first shown in 2010. The plan was to release it on the original Xbox back in 2006, but that didn't happen, so they moved it towards the Xbox 360 and PS3. But at some point the team behind the project, 1C SeaWolf, decided to scrap their work on it. But it seems it was brought back from the dead and will be releasing sometime in late 2024, for the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch.

  6. Source: https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/fallout-1-and-2-wont-be-getting-remade-todd-howard-says/ I would love to see a remaster or remake of Fallout 1 and 2, but it sounds like that is not in the plans for Bethesda according to Todd Howard. Howard was interviewed recently and asked with the popularity of the new tc show if it would result in the original games getting a remake. Howards response was more in line with making sure the original games work on modern hardware, but it doesn't look like we will be getting remasters or remakes of the first 2. But would you like to see a remake or even a remaster happen?
  7. Has anyone hear played Crime Boss: Rockay City yet? It's a first person, heist shooter style game. The cool thing about it though, is that it has an odd cast of famous people. Like Chuck Norris and Michael Madsen. Its available for PS5, series x|s, and now on PC as well.
  8. Life By You was a new game from Paradox interactive that was heavily inspired by The Sims. It's been in the works for a while, and has gone through a couple delays already. The game was revealed in 2023 and I believe they wanted to release it in early access at first, but that never seemed to happen as the release kept getting delayed. The most resent delay was it's last as the team decided to go back on it and instead cancel the project outright. It was the first I heard about this game. But I am always open to having others making Sims like games. More on this news can be found below. https://www.theverge.com/2024/6/17/24180574/life-by-you-canceled-sims
  9. Article here: https://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/pieces-interactive-alone-in-the-dark-shut-down/ Another studio shutdown by a massive company. Embracer Group recently closed down Pieces Interactive after 17 years in the industry. They were originally acquired by Embracer back in 2017. The Alone in the Dark reboot they came out with, didn't do well in sales and that's the big reason as to why they closed up shop. But in reality, it's Embracer a big company closing the doors on a small studio. What is the point of these companies to buy up these studios, have them do a few games and they bury them soon after? Embracer is no different than the other companies closing studios. https://twitter.com/PiecesInt/status/1802612988286804218
  10. A Quiet Place: A Road Ahead is an upcoming first person survival horror game based on the hit movies of the same name. I assume it's a part of the same universe, so these characters could appear in a future movie. Though I doubt it. If you haven't seen the movies, I won't go into too much detail, but essentially there are monsters that attack at the slightest sound, so you have to be as quiet as possible in order to move around. I wonder how well that is going to work in gameplay. We shall see. It's from Saber Interactive and Stormind Games and will release on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2024.
  11. Source: https://mp1st.com/news/report-ign-instructed-and-even-offered-prizes-for-crowd-to-cheer-during-phil-spencer-and-other-live-interviews IGN recently did a live interview with Phil Spencer and I guess they gave the audience free stuff to cheer. He was asked about the recent studio closures, and pretty much avoided the question saying how he felt bad about having to make cuts. And after that answer the crowd cheers. According to one of the attendees they (IGN) were giving out free prizes, some prizes being gaming headsets and other times 5 hour energy lol, ok. Supposedly the people who cheered the loudest win better prizes. They probably should have told the audience when not to cheer though, because this was definitely not the right moment. Xbox and Phil Spencer should not be cheered for how they've handled the recent studio closures and layoffs. Just not a good look.
  12. I had no idea there was a Sonic Generations remaster released. Well sort of. This new game includes a remastered Verizon of Sonic Generations, but also a new campaign around Shadow. So it's partly a remaster, semi sequel type of thing. I really liked generations. I thought it was one of the better Sonic games. So I am excited they did it with Shadow too. I just hope the game is as long as the original generations game. https://youtu.be/6E36fOpk-Yg?si=cgVkvSVKMKbczW1G

    Killer Bean

    I would have never saw this coming. There is an animated movie called Killer Bean (2008) that seems to have a huge cult following around it. I have never watched it, but have watched a reviewer discuss it, and it sounds like it'd be some dumb fun, also it's notorious for a bad animation style and poor acting. Well, it seems some developers and the original creator of the movie Jeff Lew have decided to make a video game based on the movie and from what I am seeing this looks like it might actually be good. It looks very Matrix heavy, which I hear the movie was too. Plus the Max Payne slowdown ability.
  14. DOOM: The Dark Ages is a new game in the series, but seems to be going the prequel route instead, as this will take place before DOOM (2016) and DOOM: Eternal. This game will focus on the DOOM Slayer before he became the hero we know him as today. Who here is looking forward to this? I know the recent DOOM games have been quite popular, so I expect this to continue said trend. Check out the trailer below.
  15. This looks like it might be a relaxing game to play. It's essentially a city builder like Sim City, but the only intent is to just build. Like you're playing with LEGOs and just making whatever you want. I can see it being relaxing to play. I would like to see more from it, seems like it could get boring kind of fast. it comes out on the 21st via Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2379910/Dystopika/
  16. Life is Strange is back with an all new story for Max Caulfield. I really liked the first Life is Strange game, but didn't play the last game True Colors, though I would like to eventually. I think I played Before the Storm as well, but I don't remember. That came a little after Life is Strange. This new game brings Max back, and it seems she is experiencing a co-dimension where in one her friend is dead and in the other she is still alive. I probably did an awful job explaining it, so I'll let the trailer do it.
  17. Gears of War is back, and it looks to be going into the prequel route. I haven't really played much of the Gears games, was never too huge into them, but I understand the popularity around the series. Check out the reveal trailer below. It doesn't show any gameplay, but it certainly does look pretty good.
  18. Compulsion games, the developers behind We Happy Few and Contrast, has revealed their next game called South of Midnight. It looks to be a fantasy action adventure. You can check out the gameplay trailer below. The animation style reminds me a lot of the animated Spider-Man movies, I think it's the way the frame rate for characters seems to be lower than the actual framerate of the world. Idk, it looks cool and odd at the same time. Anyway, check it out below. Do you think this is something you'd be into? I think it looks like a lot of fun.
  19. Is there any games you think you could win in a competition or tournament? Maybe it's something like Call of Duty, Overwatch, Smash Brothers, etc. But is there a game you feel you could realistically win a competition in? Back in the day I used to think I was the best at WWE Smackdown Here comes the Pain. I played the hell out of that game, so much so that it made me think I was good. But, I never played it competitively online or against others. Is there that one game you think you've mastered enough to be good in a tournament/competition for it?
  20. Check it out, it looks like Xbox is bringing out three new Xbox Series X|S consoles. Those consoles being, a new Series X special edition with 2TB SSD, a Series X that's all digital but only boasts a 1TB SSD and a new Series S with a 1TB SSD. So no handheld like some rumors were saying. What do you think? Do you see yourself picking any of these up? Or will you just end up getting a previous model for cheaper? I'm sure prices will start to drop a little more when these models drop. These new console versions will come out this holiday season.
  21. Sorry, even if I was unreasonably rich, I don't think I would ever spend $1M on a skin in a video game. Even if it's the rarest skin around and everyone wants it. The skin in question is the The StatTrak Factory New AK-47 Blue Gem – Pattern 661. You can see an image of it below: What's crazy is that the CSGO market is worth upwards of over $3 billion, crazy I know. You can view the full story here - https://www.videogamer.com/news/someone-has-just-spent-over-1m-on-a-cs2-skin/ What do you think of this? What's the most you'd ever spend for a skin? What is the most you have spent on skins or dlc? I can't say I've spent more than $10-$20 on skins in my lifetime, unless you count getting the battle pass in Fortnite, which I really don't.

    Rocksmith+

    I had no idea there was a new Rocksmith game coming out from Ubisoft. For those who don't know, Rocksmith was a popular game that allowed you to learn to play guitar all the while playing classics from the past and present. I've never played the game myself as I am not musically inclined. Though it would be fun to play the guitar and I imagine playing Rocksmith+ would be a good way to learn. Anyway, it looks like the new game just dropped, yesterday in fact. And it looks to be completely free to play. My guess is that they will be making money on the songs they have in the game. It's currently available for PC and PS5, but looks to be coming out for the PS4 and even mobile as well. At least according to the trailer as it shows Google Play and Apple stores. Check the trailer out below:
  23. This looks like a fun one, kind of reminds me of Two Point Hospital, another hospital sim game where you build and take control of a hospital. But this time it's in space and you care for more than just humans. It released late May and it's got very positive reviews on Steam. Check it here - https://store.steampowered.com/app/494730/Galacticare/ It's also available for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via GOG.
  24. It is confirmed, the new Dragon Age will be called Dragon Age: The Veilguard. BioWare will be showing a gameplay reveal on June 11th. So I'm excited to see what they have to showcase. Check out BioWare's announcement here - https://blog.bioware.com/2024/06/06/TheVeilguard/ The game was originally going to be called Dreadwolf, but I guess they decided to go with something else. Do you like the new name? Or would you have preferred they went with the old name? As well, what do you expect from the gameplay reveal? I'm excited.
  25. This is messed up. Developer kindanice recently came forward with news that someone had stolen their game "Dire Decks" and released it on Steam under the name of "Wildcard". The developer who is said to have stolen the idea, goes by Terry Brash on Twitter, and he recently posted about the game on twitter, you can see that tweet below. https://twitter.com/terrybrash/status/1797842468098265194 You can find Kindanice's game here to see how close of a match it is - https://kindanice.itch.io/dire-decks And you can find more on this news from this article: https://techraptor.net/gaming/news/indie-dev-game-cloned-dire-decks The stolen game is still up on steam, but I will not be sharing it as I don't think it deserves to be shared. You can find it by searching if you need to. But when I did, I looked at Brash's games, and they all look to be clone of other games. SO my guess is this guy takes already created games and tries to pass them off as his own. In the case of kindanice's game, he had released his game back in February, and Wildcard is not yet available to play on Steam. There is definitely a case here for theft. Especially with how there was not nearly any changes made. But I am kind of suspicious about all of this, because it could be some weird publicity stunt to draw more hype for kindanice's game. Especially since Brash hasn't responded yet to any of the allegations or the hate he has been receiving. Maybe there's more to this than we know, maybe Brash was part of the development originally, maybe he did some work on it. But the fact he has released other games that look like almost exact copies, I'm doubting that. I'm interested to see what comes of this. If there is for sure theft, then I hope Steam works fast to remove this game.
