  1. Video game composer Martin O'Donnell has shared another behind-the-scenes video from his time at Bungie working on the Halo series. This latest one focused on the music and audio from 2007's Halo 3, and it follows an earlier video that showed Steve Vai's incredible recording of the rockin' Halo 2 theme music. In this unearthed video, we see and learn a lot of things, including the fact that a number of Halo 3's sounds came from dropping, scraping, and smashing an original Xbox with a hammer. There are a lot of other interesting insights and fun facts in the video. For instance, one of the sound designers recorded audio for soldiers walking through the beach by capturing his own footsteps on a beach in Mexico when he was on vacation. Check out the full video below; it's well worth a watch for Halo fans. The Xbox-smashing bit starts at around 1:05. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  2. Samurai Shodown releases for Nintendo Switch releases on February 25, 2020, bringing the well-received fighting game reboot to Switch. Samurai Shodown has been praised as a high-quality entry in the long-running series, and now that it's done, director Nobuyuki Kuroki might be able to set his sights on another SNK series. Talking to Nintendo Life about the impending Switch release, Kuroki revealed that the game he'd most like to bring back. "Personally, I wish that we can revive Garou: Mark of the Wolves," he told the site. Garou, which launched in 1999 for the Dreamcast, is also technically the most recent entry in the Fatal Fury series, is a beloved game. The PC, PS4, and Vita versions recently received a substantial netcode update, which made them easier to play online without issue. There's absolutely no confirmation that the game will actually return, though, and it's clear from the interview that this is Kuroki's desire rather than something that is in active development. SNK Corporation is currently working on another fighting game in a long-running series, with King of Fighters XV due to release in 2020 for PS4. The second season of Samurai Shodown's DLC will start on February 26 with new fighter Mina Majikina. View the full article
  3. Ruiner, a top-down cyberpunk action game that debuted on PC, PS4, and Xbox One back in 2017, is coming to Switch. The news, announced by the game's official Twitter account, will please the game's fans who have evidently been asking for a Switch port. Cheekily, the binary in the tweet translates to "soon". Ruiner is a top-down action game with a focus on shooting, set in the year 2091. You play as a cybernetically enhanced killer who is seeking their kidnapped brother, and the game has been celebrated for its beautiful brutality and huge arsenal of futuristic weapons. You can also ditch the laser rifles, ultrasonic guns, and lightning canons in favor of a katana or pipe, if the mood hits. Ruiner received an 8/10 in our original review, and reviewer David Rayfield praised the game's story and gameplay. "Through the endless bodies that fall by your hand, the grim layers of the story peel away to divulge a few surprises about the meaning of life, death and revenge. It is a revealing journey that's well worth taking but it is apparent from the opening scene to the mysterious finale, the only thing that is pure and absolute in the world of Ruiner is murder."

  4. Rainbow Six Siege, which launched in December 2015, has been supported with new DLC operators and maps ever since, allowing the game to grow over time. Now, an industry analyst has pegged the game as an amazing example of the benefits of long-term success as it hits a new major milestone. Benji-Sales, who analyzes trends within the industry, has discovered and announced that Rainbow Six: Siege recently had its best day ever for concurrent players on Steam, with 180,000 players logging into the game at the same time. That figure does not account for players on Uplay or consoles, which means that the actual figure of online players would have been much higher. Steam itself puts the exact peak number at 180,463, which is the fifth highest peak concurrent count listed for the last 24 hours, as of this post. It's behind Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (896,092), Dota 2 (647,060), PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (584,139), and Grand Theft Auto V (228,023). Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  5. The developer of League of Legends has responded to the latest development in the ongoing lawsuit where the company is accused of gender discrimination and having a "bro culture." Recently, the group of former female employees of Riot Games hired a new legal team in an attempt to seek more damages. The new counsel withdrew the proposed settlement of $10 million, saying it was the result of "alleged mistakes and improprieties by prior class counsel." The new legal team is seeking a bigger payout for the group of former employees, following the announcement from California labor groups, including the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), that said they should be paid $390 million more, bringing the total to $400 million.

  6. February is just about over, but we've still got a slate of new games to dig into this week. Dota Underlords leaves Steam Early Access, and strategy fans can also plot to control China with Romance of the Three Kingdoms 14. You can also create a whole heap of destruction in Bloodroots and One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows. Finally, if you missed out on the Mega Man Zero or ZX games, you can revisit them with the Zero/ZX Legacy Collection. Dota Underlords -- February 25 Available on: PC, iOS, Android The auto-battler finally gets a full release this week. In case you're not familiar with the Dota-based strategy game, here's the gist: two players place heroes on an 8x8 grid, at which point the heroes duke it out without further input from the players--last hero standing wins. It's all about strategically picking and placing your favorite Dota heroes on the board. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  7. PlayStation has been dropping out of multiple expos and conferences lately, including both GDC and PAX East, citing fears over the coronavirus that has largely affected mainland China so far. The mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, is not happy with Sony's decision to drop out of PAX East (which is a Boston event), and has penned a letter to Sony president Kenichiro Yoshida asking him to reconsider. The letter, which has been reported on and excerpted from by WCVB, points out that the odds of contracting the virus in Boston are "extremely low"--there has been just one reported case of the virus in the city, and the patient is now recovering at home. "These fears reinforce harmful stereotypes that generations of Asians have worked hard to dismantle," Walsh wrote in his letter. "They trigger our worst impulses: to view entire groups of people with suspicion, to close ourselves off, and to miss out on the opportunities and connections our global city provides."

  9. Even before Microsoft has properly unveiled Halo Infinite with any gameplay footage or firm details, the company's merchandising partners have revealed new Halo Infinite action figures that contain some clues about the Xbox and PC game. First off, the new figures from Wicked Cool Toys show new armor for Master Chief that appear to more closely line up with Bungie's original armor designs. That is to say, these designs more closely resemble Master Chief's armor in Halo 1-3 before Microsoft shifted things up for Halo 4 and Halo 5 when development on the franchise moved from Bungie to 343 Industries. This is to be expected, as Microsoft has said Halo Infinite new art style is meant to hearken back to the original Halo game. Halo Infinite returns to the franchise's roots, and is "bigger and bolder" than any previous Halo title, according to Microsoft. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  10. CD Projekt has become the second-largest video game company in Europe, second only to Ubisoft, in terms of its market valuation. Though it was valued at $6.8 billion (£5.2bn) just a month ago, it's now hit $8 billion (£6.1bn) following the release of the acclaimed The Witcher 3 on Nintendo Switch - sending its sales rocketing by 500 per cent - and the success of its Netflix show (thanks, reddit). The highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, despite its recent delay, has also likely had an impact. Ubisoft, on the other hand, is currently valued at around $9.6 billion (£7.4bn).

  11. We've been awash with rumours of cancelled Star Wars games in recent years, and here's another: EA reportedly cancelled a third Star Wars game last year, this one purportedly a spinoff of the Star Wars Battlefront series. Codenamed Viking internally, the shooter was initially expected to release in 2020 as part of Microsoft and Sony's next-gen console line-up, but when timescales slipped, the game was allegedly cancelled, making it the third Star Wars game to succumb to development hell alongside Amy Hennig's Ragtag and EA Vancouver's Orca. According to a new report by Kotaku, six individual insiders shared the news on the proviso the outlet did not compromise their anonymity. It's reported that "EA Vancouver spent some time designing ideas and prototypes for Viking, and Criterion came aboard soon afterward", but "that was when the problems started".

  12. Spawn is coming to Mortal Kombat 11 on 8th March, 2020. Famed comic book artist Todd McFarlane - who was also a writer and artist on the Spawn series - may have had a hand in Spawn's design, as he announced the roster addition by way of unveiling an all-new seven-inch scale figure. "MORTAL KOMBAT SPAWN REVEAL!! FINALLY I CAN SHOW IT!!" tweeted a very excited Todd McFarlane (thanks, VG24/7). "Spawn Mortal Kombat action figure is an incredibly detailed (true McFarlane Toys fashion) 7-inch scale figure designed with 22 points of ultra-articulation and can achieve full range posing. COMING MARCH 2020!" Read more View the full article
  13. Apex Legends' most recent roster addition, Revenant, is too easy to kill, say some players. According to some commenters on the Apex Legend subreddit (thanks, The Loadout), Revenant - who boasts extraordinary climbing skills and a fast-moving crouch as his passive skill, the ability to shut down enemy abilities as his tactical, and can issue a death totem for downed teammates as his ultimate - may look skinny enough to necessitate the extra 5 per cent damage he takes, similar to the extra damage taken by Wraith's small frame, but according to some his hitbox is "actually pretty disjointed in many areas". "I really hope we can get a fix for this stuff, because as fun as Revenant is to play, it's really frustrating feeling like he's made of tissue paper," said one player. "I can't get away with stuff like bolting across a street in Capitol like I can on other legends, because I just take so much more damage just getting poked/sprayed at - and my most played characters are Mirage & Bangalore, so I'm used to average hitbox characters."

  14. Baldur's Gate 3 will be available via early access on Steam later this year. It's been in development for a while - work was underway even before Divinity: Original Sin 2 shipped in September 2017 - but the wait will soon be over as Wizard of the Coast's parent company, Hasbro, has revealed Baldur's Gate 3 will release later this year on Steam early access. Talking at an investor event at the New York Toy Fair (thanks, DSO Gaming), Hasbro also confirmed Larian Studio will reveal the first gameplay footage of Baldur's Gate 3 at PAX East (operated by Eurogamer's US parent company Reedpop) at 3.30pm ET - that's 8.30pm UK time - on 27th February, 2020.

  15. The mayor of Boston has reached out to Sony, asking it to reverse its decision to stay away from PAX East this year, stating that the decision should have been motivated by "facts, not fear". PlayStation confirmed earlier this week that it would no longer attend PAX East (operated by Eurogamer's US parent company Reedpop) due to "increasing concerns" surrounding coronavirus. While it insists it made "the best option as the situation related to the virus and global travel restrictions are changing daily", the mayor of Boston - the US city that hosts PAX East - sent a letter to Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida intimating the decision to pull out served to reinforce "harmful stereotypes" about Chinese citizens, and were fuelled by "confusion and lack of information".

  16. A Red Dead Redemption 2 modder has insisted their Hot Coffee mod is here to stay despite receiving a legal threat from the game's publisher. The Hot Coffee mod, which was uploaded to Nexus Mods on 12th February, recreates the infamous Hot Coffee mini-game from 2004's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It sees main character Arthur Morgan have sex with a prostitute, and was built with animations lifted from the drunk saloon mission with Lenny and the sounds the character models make when they get injured. No nudity is shown, and the mod is only available for the single-player portion of the game. The original Hot Coffee was not normally accessible in San Andreas, but it hit the headlines after the release of the Hot Coffee mod for the PC version in 2005. This mod granted access to the mini-game, which portrayed sex between main character Carl "CJ" Johnson and his chosen in-game girlfriend. Assets for Hot Coffee were also found in the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions, prompting the ESRB to re-rate San Andreas Adults Only, some shops to withdraw and recall the game, and federal and legal action as well as civil class actions.

  17. If you played BioWare's wonderful Mass Effect trilogy, you'll be familiar with its morality system. Ostensibly reflecting "good" and "bad" playthroughs, the Paragon and Renegade system let players choose different lines of dialogue and key actions that each would each contribute in some way to their character's Paragon or Renegade score. Paragon points would be obtained for compassionate and heroic actions, while Renegade points were obtained for being ruthless or, well, a bit of a dick. Paragon and Renegade each had their own scores, which meant being nice every now and then wouldn't adversely affect a player's dodgy rep, and vice versa. However, a certain number of points in either track would open dialogue options with significant impact (in the first Mass Effect, high scores would unlock high ranks in the Charm and Intimidate skills).

  19. The Play of the Game feature is meant to showcase a single player's skill in a single round of a competitive multiplayer match. Usually you see the player downing three or four foes without dying. And usually, each foe is a different player. But in this Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Play of the Game clip, the same player is killed four times. Redditor Crossfingers uploaded a remarkable video to the Modern Warfare subreddit yesterday that showed how they were killed four times in a single Play of the Game. The video has proved incredibly popular, with over 35,000 upvotes. Read more View the full article

  21. Microsoft Flight Simulator has all the airports in the world, its developers have said. 37,000 airports were manually edited by the developers. In the video below, Sven Mestas, lead game designer at French studio Asobo reveals the astonishing work done by its airport team, which expanded on the 24,000 simulated airports in 2006's FSX, to the hugely ambitious target set for this year's game.

  22. Arcade1Up showed off an array of new arcade cabinets at CES 2020, and the NBA Jam cabinet with online-multiplayer capability was among the top of our list for the best of the big tech show. Now, as Toy Fair 2020 kicks off in New York City, Arcade1Up has opened up pre-orders for its new machines--NBA Jam, Frogger, and Pac-Man 40th Anniversary Edition. All three machines can now be ordered from Arcade1Up's website. Other retailers are expected to carry pre-orders, and we'll update this article when those go live. Unfortunately, no specific release date has been announced at this time. The NBA Jam cabinet's capable of online multiplayer across all three of its included games: NBA Jam, NBA Jam Tournament Edition, and NBA Hangtime. Up to four players on four different machines are able to play together. We spoke to Arcade1Up at CES 2020, where the company told us it's worked to license the majority of the players who appeared in the classic game. Frogger, on the other hand, focuses on Konami's classic games. The cabinet includes Frogger, Time Pilot, and Time Pilot '84. We played the Frogger machine at CES 2020 and were impressed with the light-up marquee and panel art of the classic, jaywalking frog. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  23. Devotion has secured its future at Harvard University a year after it was pulled from Steam. The superb horror game, developed by Taiwan studio Red Candle Games, launched on Steam in the spring of 2019, but after it was found to contain an unflattering reference to China's president, Xi Jinping, it sparked an outcry among Chinese players that led to the withdrawal of its Chinese distributors, the closure of Red Candle's account on Weibo, one of China's largest social media platforms, and the removal of the game from Steam. A year later, and with a re-release looking unlikely, Red Candle has finally found a home for Devotion - the Harvard-Yenching Library at Harvard University. Read more View the full article
  24. It's official. 4A Games are fully committed to ray tracing technology for its next big game and the implications are exciting. The firm is in preparing for the next generation with initial work concentrated around RT - strongly suggesting that ray tracing support isn't an afterthought built into next-gen console silicon, but a key feature of the design. In an interview centred on 4A Games' excellent work in bringing Metro Redux to Switch, we asked CTO Oles Shishkovstov for his reaction to publicly revealed aspects of next generation console hardware. "We are fully into ray tracing, dropping old-school codepath/techniques completely," he told us. The firm is keeping its cards close to its chest but 4A has already shipped Metro Exodus on PC with DXR ray tracing support and is currently assessing options for its next step. "Internally we experimented a lot and with spectacular results so far. You will need to wait to see what we implement into our future projects," Shishkovstov told us. Read more View the full article
