Adobe To End-Of-Life Its Browser Crashing Plugin Flash
Jul 25, 2017 - 1:00 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
If you've ever had your browser crash--and who hasn't?--there's a good chance that Flash was to blame. Adobe, the company behind Flash, has announced its plans to kill off the platform in the coming years.

In a post on its website today, Adobe announced it will "end-of-life Flash," which means it will go through the process of phasing it out as companies continue to migrate to alternatives. "Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats," it said.

The next three-plus years will still see Flash supported by Adobe, including the release of security updates. It will, however, "move more aggressively to EOL Flash in certain geographies where unlicensed and outdated versions of Flash Player are being distributed." Various companies, including Microsoft, Apple (which gleefully notes that it's already blocked by default in Safari), and Google, all have their own plans for handling the phase out for Flash, but the end result is that you should begin seeing it even less than you have recently.

It's a move that has been a long time coming--Apple famously left out support for Flash from the iPhone, which portended its inevitable demise almost a decade ago. The tech has been largely rendered obsolete as other standards have emerged, including HTML5.

Epic Games Officially Launches Fortnite for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac

Epic Games is excited to announce that Fortnite, its third-person Action Building game, is available now in paid Early Access for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.

Players can view Fortnite in action in this all-new gameplay launch trailer and register to play at fortnite.com.

Epic also revealed the cast of veteran voice actors lending their talents to help the story of Fortnite shine across hundreds of hours of gameplay. Ashly Burch (Horizon: Zero Dawn, Life is Strange) stars as the voice of Ray, a quirky yet, very human, little robot that guides players through their adventures. Players will also hear Phil LaMarr (Samurai Jack), Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim: Uprising, Emerald City), Amy Pemberton (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) and Andrew Kishino (Bulletstorm) among the talented voices directed by veteran actor JB Blanc (Horizon: Zero Dawn).

"As we created the world of Fortnite, with its heroic moments and quirky sense of humor, we knew it would be important to have a mixture of veteran voices and exceptional new talent in order to connect the players to the game's story," said Creative Director Darren Sugg. “Just as we've built Fortnite with the players, we were honored to have a group of amazing performers become part of our community and to help us bring this brand new world to life."

Disastrous Pokemon Go Fest in Chicago left Niantic "horrified with the results"
Jul 24, 2017 - 2:38 PM - by Emabulator

VG247 has the story.

Quote:
Pokemon Go players weren’t the only ones who were “horrified”.

Even if you’re not a Pokemon Go player, I’m sure that by now, you’ve heard about the disastrous Pokemon Go fest in Chicago over the weekend.

The event was a big deal for Niantic. There was a livestream and Legendary pokemon were going to be announced. It was meant to be all sorts of fun, for young and old alike.

In reality, the game suffered a number of issues that weren’t just limited to the event. Niantic CEO John Hanke was met with booing when he took to the stage, and chants of “We Can’t Play” and “Fix the Game.”

If you think you can sit through the highlight reel (or lowlight?) of the most horrendous moments from the livestream, you can watch the cringe fest here. It’s one hell of a supercut.

For the most part, the hosts ignored the crowd’s boos, powering through as if it wasn’t happening. So what was Niantic thinking when all of this was going on.

DC's Doomsday Clock Art Teases Universe Altering Crossover With Watchmen
Jul 23, 2017 - 11:26 AM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
DC Comics has another large-scale event coming this fall, and for the first time, aspects of Alan Moore's iconic story The Watchmen will be combining with the DC Universe in Doomsday Clock. During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, writer Geoff Johns showed off some interior art for the book and vaguely discussed the story.

Ever since Watchmen's Dr. Manhattan appeared at the end of DC's Rebirth one-shot, back in June 2016, fans have been wanting answers. Rebirth relaunched the DC by combining elements of the New 52 line with Pre-Flashpoint material. A task this large could be daunting, but during a panel for the event at Comic-Con, writer Geoff Johns seemed up for the challenge.

While Doomsday Clock seemed to be the highlight of the panel, Johns was relatively tight-lipped about the event. "You'll know in the first page of the first issue, you'll know exactly what the story's about" Johns said during the panel.

The logo for the event mixes the Doomsday Clock with the Superman emblem. Johns said that the Man of Steel is the story but did not go much deeper into detail. Moving forward, Johns mentioned some more elements about the upcoming event: "I love seeing the smartest man from one world talking to the smartest man from another. And the smartest man from this world, from DC, is Lex Luthor. And that's all I'll say." Those familiar with Watchmen will know the smartest man on that world is Ozymandias. However, there is no confirmation about whether that character will appear in Doomsday Clock as of yet.

Intel Skylake-X: Intel's New Six, Eight and Ten-Core CPUs Reviewed
Jul 23, 2017 - 8:44 AM - by Emabulator

The Digital Foundry at Eurogamer has the goods.

Quote:
The core takeaway from our first run of benches is that every i7 in the Basin Falls line-up - and by extension, other modern i7s like the 6700K and 7700K - are phenomenally good gaming CPUs. With the exception of the Ashes of the Singularity CPU stress test (designed to push the game engine beyond usual limits) all of these chips produces excellent gaming results. On top of that, performance minimums are all above the crucial 60 frames per second. And this is all with no overclocking - although all-core turbo (an out-of-the-box OC usually enabled by default) may be active here, despite disabling it in the BIOS. And that guarantee of tip-top performance really is what has made the i7 brand such a winner over the last few years: Core i5 gets you to 60fps for the majority of titles, while i7 takes care of the most challenging fare.

But to what extent do the many-core chips actually improve upon the quad-core experience? There has been talk of degraded gaming performance on Skylake-X and you will note that the the quad-core i7 7740X is managing to equal or best the six-core i7 7800X in a couple of tests. The interconnectivity fabric between the cores in the big chips has been revamped, and this has impacted game performance on some titles. But you can see that generally, more modern game engines tend to benefit from the additional cores - but the improvements are incremental at best, best felt in the lowest performing areas of those titles.

If you're ever looking for one single game on which to judge a prospective CPU purchase, Crysis 3 and its Welcome to the Jungle stage should be your number one destination. It thrives on whatever CPU resources you can throw at it, and the many-core chips love it with minimums in the 80s (vs 66fps on the quad-core 7740X). Mainstream CPUs don't stand a chance here, with even an overclocked i5 7600K at 4.8GHz unable stay north of 60fps (45ps minimum - really).

Xbox Hardware Revenue Down 29% After Fall in Q4 Sales
Jul 23, 2017 - 8:08 AM - by Emabulator

MCV has the story.

Quote:
Microsoft has released its Q4 earnings report for FY17, and its gaming revenue has increased three per cent year-on-year to hit $1.6bn, driven largely by Xbox software sales and services.

This figure may well have been higher, however, were it not partly offset by a decline in Xbox hardware revenue. This fell by 29 per cent year-on-year, mostly due to lower prices and a decline in the volume of consoles sold, Microsoft said.

Software sales, meanwhile, were up 11 per cent year-on-year thanks to a higher volume of Xbox Live transactions. Indeed, Microsoft reported that there are now 53m active users on Xbox Live as of Q4 FY17 from 52m in Q3 FY17. That said, it's still down on Q2 FY17's 55m active users.

Gaming is just one part of Microsoft's personal computing section, however, which as a whole fell by two per cent year-on-year. This was due to declining revenue from Microsoft's phone division, which "contributed four percentage points of decline" according to Microsoft's earnings call slides.

"Our gaming business is now more than $9 billion, and growing profitably," Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella said during the company's earnings call.

Iron Fist Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix, Taps New Showrunner
Jul 22, 2017 - 11:48 AM - by Emabulator

Raven Metzner (Fox's Sleepy Hollow, NBC's Heroes Reborn, and TNT's Falling Skies) will take over as showrunner for Iron Fist Season 2. Variety has the story.

Quote:
Netflix has renewed the Marvel series “Iron Fist” for Season 2.

Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb made the announcement at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. In addition, Loeb hinted that Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) would team up with NYPD detective Misty Knight (Simone Missick), who first appeared in Season 1 of “Luke Cage.” The characters previously partnered together in the Marvel comic books.

“Iron Fist” stars “Game of Thrones” alum Finn Jones as Danny Rand, the heir to the multi-billion dollar Rand Corp. who returns to New York after training for years in the mysterious city of K’un-Lun. Through his training, he was chosen to be the living weapon known as the Iron Fist, which allows him to channel his chi energy into his fists.

The Second Map from BF1: They Shall Not Pass is Now Live for Premium Owners
Jul 21, 2017 - 4:14 PM - by Emabulator

The Escapist has the story.

Quote:
Yesterday marked the launch of the second map from the Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass DLC, as well as a week long free trial of Premium.

If you're a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owner, you may have noticed that a new map dropped yesterday. Named "Prise de Tahure," DICE says that the map is "set in the hours just before dawn in a small countryside town that serves as the arena in the fight over the Champagne-Ardennes region. Players will fight as the French or German army in high intensity, close combat battles over the control of the Tahure region."

If you are not a Premium Pass member, you may have also noticed that you have access to that map. Why? Because yesterday EA kicked off the first "Premium Trials" event for BF1. Until July 27, all the maps from the BF1 Premium Pass are available to everyone. That means you have a week to check out all the additional maps, the French Army, the Frontlines game mode, and more.

It is worth noting that you will only receive experience on the DLC maps if you actually own the Premium Pass or that specific DLC. Otherwise, your XP will be saved for you, and will be added retroactively if and when you purchase the additional content. There's one other restriction: DICE says that, "only owners of a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass or the specific expansion pack can spawn in with weapons and vehicles unique to the expansion."

Full Throttle Remastered released earlier this year on PlayStation 4, Vita, and PC, and now it's available on iOS for just $4.99.

Full Throttle is a classic LucasArts adventure game from 1995 that creator Tim Schafer and Double Fine just gave a fresh coat of paint. In our review, we said "The quirks of the original game are as attractive today as they were then, and this version does a fine job smoothing out the rough edges, making Full Throttle Remastered a road trip worth taking."

DC's Next Movie Looks Likely To Be Shazam
Jul 21, 2017 - 11:52 AM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
While Marvel's schedule is packed with future movies, things have been a bit less busy at DC. Justice League and Aquaman are both due out in the next 12 months, but beyond that, it has been unclear what the next movie from the studio will be. It has now been reported that Shazam will go into production early next year for a 2019 release.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shazam will be directed by David F. Sandberg. Sanberg scored a hit last year with the thriller Lights Out, and his horror sequel Annabelle: Creation arrives next month.

Dwayne Johnson was previously announced in the role of Shazam's nemesis Black Adam and is set to appear in a spinoff movie focusing on that character. However, it is unknown if he will also appear in the Shazam movie.

Although Shazam will be the next DC film to start shooting, the studio has plenty more films in the pipeline. Following the huge success of Wonder Woman, a sequel is likely to be announced soon. War of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves is set to direct the standalone Batman movie, while Suicide Squad director David Ayer is developing Gotham City Sirens, focusing on the female villains of the DC universe. It was also reported last week that The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra might helm Suicide Squad 2, replacing the previously rumoured Mel Gibson.

George RR Martin Does Everything EXCEPT Work on Winds of Winter
Jul 20, 2017 - 5:49 PM - by vallor
Variety Online comes to us with the news that George RR Martin is has decided to bone up on his executive producer skills by helping bring "Who Fears Death" by African Author Nnedi Okorafor to the small screen with his long time partner HBO.


Interesting trivia: author Nnedi Okorafor actually finished her series. GRRM might want to take some notes.

I wonder where actually finishing his own series fits on his to-do list. Obviously below his SJW political activism, writing sci-fi novellas to option off to the Syfy channel, and writing novellas based on GoT.

PS4 Leads US Hardware Sales In June 2017 NPDs
Jul 20, 2017 - 5:04 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
The couple of months of Nintendo Switch topping the US sales charts seem to be over. For the second straight month, the PS4 leads hardware sales among consoles.

The news comes by way of the US report from the NPD group. According to the report, PS4 sales were driven by the release of the gold PS4 Slim console with a 1 TB hard drive. As is usual, we didn't get sales numbers. However, in spite of not selling the most out of the consoles, the Switch has still sold a substantial number of units this year.

Hardware sales were strong in June 2017 compared with June 2016, up 27 percent. Year-to-date sales are up 19 percent over last year, totaling $1.4 billion. The increase in sales is due primarily to the release of the Switch earlier this year.

Total sales for the month reached $765 million, which is an increase of 7 percent year-over-year. Every category except accessories saw an increase in spending during June.

Learn about four fighting styles that Kazuma Kiryu can unleash and all the alluring vices Kamurocho has to offer in Yakuza Kiwami!

Being retold in Kiwami is the nascent character arc for Yakuza - the game begins with series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu getting sent to prison for the murder of his family patriarch (which he didn't commit). To make matters worse, during the 10 years of his imprisonment, not only does Kiryu's clan expel him from the yakuza, but ¥10 billion (~$100 million) goes missing from the clan treasury. Worse yet, Kiryu's childhood sweetheart is also nowhere to be found, and with the entirety of the Japanese underworld on the hunt for the missing cash, Kiryu is all but lost until he finds the orphan girl Haruka, searching for her aunt who shares the same name as Kiryu's missing love. What follows from there is a web of betrayal, underworld politics, and redemption as nothing will stop Kiryu from regaining his honor.

The Evil Within 2 Survive Gameplay Trailer
Jul 19, 2017 - 8:58 PM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
That’s the mantra running through Sebastian Castellanos’ mind. Plagued by memories of the daughter he couldn’t save and a mystery he could never solve, he begins to lose himself in his past mistakes. Sebastian lives out his nightmares every day, unable to pull himself from his downward spiral. Until an old friend-turned-traitor reenters his life with an offer: Return to the nightmare and save your daughter. The Evil Within 2 gives a broken man the chance to make things right and find the peace he so deserves, but he’ll have to go through hell first.

It’s a race against time for Sebastian as he fights to survive and find Lily before she’s lost forever in a crumbling STEM world. As he searches, he is haunted by the ghosts of his past and his own insecurities, but he never loses hope. Determined to save Lily, Sebastian will travel to the depths of this new STEM world and face off against anything it throws at him.

Of course, how he goes about his mission is completely up to you. In The Evil Within 2, you are free to explore as much or as little as you choose, and upgrade your weapons and yourself accordingly. Do you prefer a stealthy approach, complete with setting traps and sneaking around threats in your path? Or would you rather go in guns blazing and take down anything that dares to stand between you and Lily? Or, perhaps, you’ll mix and match gameplay styles to suit your mood.

Provided you can scrounge up the resources, you can play the game however you see fit. As you explore the world, you’ll be able to follow side quests, track down supply caches for those much-needed resources, and uncover clues that could help you solve the mystery of Mobius and STEM.

The Evil Within 2 will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC this October on Friday the 13th.

Nintendo's new online service looks like it could be every bit as bad as you feared
Jul 19, 2017 - 3:56 PM - by Emabulator

Eurogamer: Nintendo's new online service looks like it could be every bit as bad as you feared

Quote:
Ever since it was first announced that a majority of the Switch's online services would be delivered via a companion app - key features to online gaming such as voice chat - there have been some concerns about how exactly it'd all work. And I'm sorry to report that, right now, it's a convoluted mess.

Splatoon 2 is currently the only game to support the app, and here's how you go about setting up a room for you and your friends. First, you'll need to head to the Online Lounge in Splatoon 2's multiplayer area. From there, you'll be prompted to create a room, and you can push a notification out to your phone. It's on your phone - and only on your phone, it would seem - that you can then invite friends into a room.

It's something of a faff, and it doesn't look like it'll be worth it - at present, you can only take part in private battles, and the voice chat itself seems extremely limited. Unlike with Skype, if you flick aside to another app on your phone, you'll lose the ability to talk to your friend. So, if you need to head to an IM client as I did, to figure out with a friend exactly how to make sense of it all, you're fresh out of luck.

You'll also need your phone screen on for that voice chat to remain connected - meaning it guzzles battery in the process. It's an almost aggressively limited service, and this is before we get into the mess of cables you'll need if you're going to want to play online with headphones in the Switch's handheld mode - something which it would seem is only possible with a separate splitter available elsewhere.
