A Total War Saga: TROY Announced for PC
Sep 19, 2019 - 6:23 PM - by Evil Avatar

Creative Assembly and Sega Announce A Total War Saga: TROY

SEGA Europe today announced Creative Assembly’s thrilling new strategy title reconstructing one of the greatest stories ever told, A Total War Saga: TROY. Inspired by Homer’s Iliad, TROY will let you forge a heroic legacy in the late Bronze Age, the furthest back in time the critically acclaimed franchise has ever travelled.

In TROY, the fate of Aegean civilisation will be in your hands; each choice you make will shape the lands from the mythical heights of Mount Olympus to the arid deserts of Lemnos. Experience history as it may have happened or shape the legend for yourself in this unique chapter of Total War.

Homer’s Iliad is rich with myth, legends, gods and monsters. TROY casts these stories through a historical lens to consider what might have really happened but ultimately lets you decide which heroes will fall in battle and which will be immortalised in legend.

The battlefields will tremble under the feet of renowned warriors like Achilles and Hector but it will take more than brute force alone to lay claim to the legendary city of Troy. You will need to deftly manage a barter economy, conduct diplomacy among friends and foes, and curry the very favour of the Gods themselves before etching your name in the annals of history.

Total War Saga titles channel the grand strategy and real-time battles of a core Total War game into an intense flashpoint in time, letting you determine the outcome of pivotal moments in history. This change in scope and perspective makes Total War Saga the perfect home for innovation, often leading to new ideas that go on to influence future tentpole titles.

A Total War Saga: TROY will release on Steam for PC in 2020. Add it to your wish list here.

Get Your Heart Racing as GRID Prepares for Launch
Sep 19, 2019 - 7:16 AM - by Evil Avatar

Codemasters ignites the drama of motorsport with the latest GRID trailer that premieres today. Having recently won Best Racing Game at the gamescom Awards 2019, the trailer highlights player choice, showcasing multiple car classes on some of the most challenging track and street circuits in various settings including night time and heavy rain race conditions. GRID releases on 11 October on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC (DVD and via Steam).

Against the backdrop of a remixed version of The Light by Sophie and the Giants, the trailer comes to life with the Audi R8 1:1 battling wheel-to-wheel with the Honda CRX MightyMouse on the twisting point-to-point Okutama Sprint. The action cuts to traditional race circuits in Zhejiang and Brands Hatch and the first Nemesis is created as the SRT Viper GTS-R and Chevrolet Corvette C7.R trade paint as they jostle bumper-to-bumper to retain the racing line.

The trailer culminates with the Prototype class featuring the Acura DPi and Cadillac DPi-V.R racing through the streets of Shanghai at night and fades with a climatic fight to the finish. With 104 events at launch including challenges against FA Racing Esports and Fernando Alonso, players enter the GRID World Series against long-time adversaries, Ravenwest. With accessibility and choice at its core, players have access to four cities, eight circuits with over 80 racing routes. Featuring over 400 AI personalities ranging from calm to aggressive, measured to unpredictable, every race will feel unique and alive.

“As a team, we wanted to capture the essence of the original GRID which, in its day innovated the racing genre with best-in-class handling and the introduction of Flashback. We want to build on GRID’s legacy and create a game that focuses on three core pillars of choice & accessibility, motorsport stories and racing for glory, all of which are captured in the trailer,” said Chris Smith, GRID Game Director at Codemasters. “Accessibility and Choice allows players to race their way with handling options for both the core sim racer and casual players. Secondly, it’s about Glory and Prestige. We want players to feel excited no matter where they finish - whether that’s in first place or coming out on top against your arch nemesis. Lastly, it’s about the unpredictable stories that happen in Motorsport; it’s why we watch motorsport on TV. It’s the drama and those the key moments that get you sitting on the edge of your seat. GRID isn’t about a procession of cars. It’s tight overtakes, bumper-to-bumper scrapes and competitive racing action. We want everything including the car to be able to tell a story at the end of the race through its bumps and scrapes. GRID gives players drama, excitement and unique motorsport stories in every race.”

Anthem will get 'Seasonal Updates' Rather than the Previously Announced Acts
Sep 18, 2019 - 10:01 AM - by Evil Avatar

In February, BioWare explained how Anthem's post-launch content would be released in updates called "acts," which would add new locations, features, and character interactions, and ultimately culminate in a world-changing "Cataclysms" that would set the stage for the next act. But the game's rough launch pushed everything back, and when the act one Cataclysm became playable on the Anthem PTS, it was not great. Originally slated to go live in May, the Cataclysm didn't enter full release until August.

Today, BioWare announced that plans for future Anthem acts have been shelved so developers can work on more long-term, systemic fixes to the game. Instead, Anthem will get "seasonal updates" that head of live services Chad Robertson said "will deliver challenges and chases similar to what you’ve seen, and are built around some fun themes we’re bringing to the game."

"As I’ve said previously, we want to be transparent with you that we know more work needs to be done to make Anthem better. We also want to ensure we’re backing up our words with a great game you can play," Robertson wrote. "So I don’t have any news today to share about the long-term changes we are bringing to Anthem. What I can say is that we will continue to engage with you, our community, through PTS when we can show you what is coming."

CoD: Modern Warfare Makes A Huge Change To How DLC Maps Are Released
Sep 18, 2019 - 9:49 AM - by Evil Avatar

Activision has confirmed that most of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's post-release content, including DLC maps, will be released on all platforms at the same time. That is a big deal for Call of Duty, as CharlieIntel reminds us, this will be the first time in more than a decade that neither PlayStation nor Xbox gets a head start on content releases. That said, PS4 gets a "Day 1 advantage" that's yet to be specified, but with cross-play coming, there won't be any concerns about non-PS4 users lacking access to maps.

In a statement, Activision said the developers have "worked to ensure that content will be released in a way that enables all players to continue to seamlessly play together."

Activision said that "most" of Modern Warfare's post-release DLC--which includes new maps, modes, and Spec-Ops missions--will "release simultaneously across all platforms."

That's all Activision had to say on the subject, but the company said it will share more details on Modern Warfare's post-release DLC strategy in the weeks ahead.

Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson Will Return For Ghostbusters 2020 Movie
Sep 17, 2019 - 6:33 AM - by Evil Avatar

A new Ghostbusters movie is coming in 2020, and now we've learned a little more about it. At least two of the original franchise's stars, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, will reprise their roles, and other original cast members might come back as well.

Aykroyd confirmed on the Joe Rogan Experience that he's coming back for the Ghostbusters 2020 movie that's being written by Ivan Reitman, the son of the original Ghostbusters movie director Jason Reitman. "I'm not in the picture so much anymore; we've got the Ghostbusters movie that we're working on now, and I will have to be performing in that," Aykroyd said.

Aykroyd went on to say that the movie, which has the title (or perhaps working title) "Ghostbusters: The Third Movie," is looking to bring back other original cast members, too.

In the interview, Aykroyd started off by saying "all" of the original Ghostbusters cast will be back for the new one. Then he said "most of the original people." Later in the interview he said "some" of the cast from the first movies will be back. So it seems it's not completely worked out yet.

Asked directly about if Bill Murray will reprise his role of Dr. Peter Venkman, Aykroyd said, "We're hoping."

Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore, will come back as well. He confirmed in a video message on Cameo that he's coming back, and in fact, that the movie is shooting right now.

Classic Dragon Quest Games Arrive on Nintendo Switch September 27th
Sep 17, 2019 - 6:15 AM - by Evil Avatar

Square Enix announced that the first three classic games in the Dragon Quest franchise will be released for the Nintendo Switch system on September 27. Fans can rediscover the origins of the legendary RPG series and the entire Erdrick trilogy in Dragon Quest, Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line and Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation, each available via digital download from the Nintendo eShop.

Upon its release in 1986, the pivotal Dragon Quest series became a cultural phenomenon, accumulating a large, passionate fanbase of millions worldwide, and set the standard for the RPG genre. This modern collection of the classic titles features simple and intuitive controls that mimic retro gameplay, paying homage to where the legacy began.

The iconic Erdrick trilogy begins in the acclaimed Dragon Quest where players begin their voyage as the “Hero,” a descendent of the valiant hero Erdrick in an epic journey through the historic realm of Alefgard. Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line takes place a century later, where the young prince of Midenhall embarks on a journey to find the other two descendants of Erdrick in order to defeat the nefarious Hargon. The third and final title in the Erdrick trilogy, Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation, takes players through the land of Aliahan, where a young hero has been charged with an impossible task of slaying Baramos, the master of darkness.

Dragon Quest will be priced at $4.99, Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line will be priced at $6.49, and Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation will be priced at $12.49. All three titles will be available digitally for the Nintendo Switch system.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Coming to the West in 2020
Sep 12, 2019 - 11:55 AM - by Evil Avatar

Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the Next Step in the Acclaimed Yakuza Series, Heads to the West in 2020!

SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio are happy to announce that the latest entry in the RGG / Yakuza series, Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Japanese title - Ryu Ga Gotoku 7) is releasing in Japan on January 16, 2020, for the PlayStation 4, with a Western launch planned for 2020. Actors Shinichi Tsutsumi, Ken Yasuda, and Kiichi Nakai will be lending their appearances and voices to the game's main cast members, with Kazuhiro Nakaya voicing the game's main protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon introduces a new main protagonist for the first time since the series' inception over a decade ago - Ichiban Kasuga, a low-level yakuza member looking to prove his self-worth, and follows him and his motley crew of unlikely allies as they attempt to rise from rags to riches in this modern human drama.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is much more than just a new chapter in the Yakuza series. Much like the new English title itself, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a complete reimagining of the franchise, a landmark to coincide with the series' 15th anniversary. With the bulk of the game taking place in the large-scale, painstakingly-realized setting of Ijincho in Yokohama, players will explore an entirely new side of Japan never-before-seen in the series. Not only that, but Yakuza: Like a Dragon's combat system has undergone a major overhaul, combining Yakuza's established brawling action with a turn-based RPG battle system.

Sega Genesis Mini Reviews
Sep 12, 2019 - 7:32 AM - by Evil Avatar


The Sega Genesis Mini is the closest thing we have to a perfect all-in-one mini console so far. There are a few weird emulation issues here and there, but the sheer number of games and its delightful interface far outshines any graphical hiccups in these classic games. The quiet inclusion of different ROMs for different regions is one of those things that makes no sense at all to include while simultaneously making it feel even more lovingly crafted and special. It's hard to find much to really dislike about the Genesis Mini. The decision to include the 3-button controllers rather than the later 6-button ones is a bummer, but it only really matters for Street Fighter II. Even if I was more of a SNES kid growing up, the Genesis Mini is now my favorite retro mini console.

Any opportunity to play with a Sega Genesis was mesmerizing and magical: to the point where I even rented one at Blockbuster (with QuackShot!) to help with the withdrawals. But as time went on I didn't have to worry about missing out, as Sega put their classics on pretty much every device known to man. The Sega Genesis Mini is yet another way to play them, but manages to rise to the level of the beloved Nintendo Classic Editions to cement its place in Mini history.

So here's the thing: if you still have room in your life for more gaming nostalgia, or maybe if you were a Genesis kid and not a Nintendo kid, then this console is definitely for you. If you're curious about it, well, then you can't go wrong. It's $79.99, and you get a lot of games, plus a strong shot of the '90s distilled -- brace yourself for a lot of sassy animal mascots, graffiti-fonts, "tubular" slang, whatever the hell Earthworm Jim was, plus, of course ToeJam and Earl and its early '90s funk. You'll have a rad time.

But the Sega Genesis Mini is the Sega retro console you've been waiting for. Simply put: If you want to play some great Sega Genesis games, a well-spent $80 here gets you 40 well-picked ones.

So the Mini has some issues, and for M2 fans it might be a little disappointing to see that it falls short of the team's most ambitious retro projects from the past, but for the most part the Mini is a very satisfying little console. It's got the looks, it's got a great selection of games that largely play faithful to the original experience, and it's priced just right at $80--though you may disagree if the six-button games like Street Fighter II are critical factors. Genesis fans have waited a long time for a system like this, and for once, we're happy to say that the latest official Genesis console is one worth buying.
Sega Genesis Mini on Amazon.

Anyone picking one up? I'm still on the fence about the Atari Flashback and I'm saving most of my money for the full-sized C64 Mini.

The Evil Avatar Control Review
Sep 11, 2019 - 1:18 PM - by Evil Avatar

After gaining the rights back to Alan Wake, Remedy Entertainment is back with another oddball 3rd person shooter, Control. Writer Aaron Birch is here to give us a tour of the Oldest House.

As somewhat mysterious protagonist, Jesse Faden, a woman with an uncertain past at the beginning of the game, you find yourself in the headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Control. This super secret arm of the government is responsible for researching the paranormal. In fact, the very building the organisation calls home is actually some form of pocket dimension, contained in an nigh on invisible building in the middle of New York. Inside this building, called the Oldest House, the laws of reality cease to be constrained, and its shifting hallways and portals to different dimensions are both a source of intense research, and a whole heap of potential danger to the outside world.

Control Content Roadmap: Fall 2019 - Mid 2020
Sep 11, 2019 - 12:57 PM - by Evil Avatar

Control – What’s Next? Free DLC content includes Photo Mode and a challenging new game mode

Now that Control has launched and we’ve been able to get a few updates out of the way, it’s time to take a look at what’s coming next. We will continue to build on the world of Control, creating additional game content all the way through 2020. We already have a small team in place at Remedy that’s busy working on post-launch content.

Here’s a brief overview of what’s coming to Control...

First up, while some crafty PC players “unlocked” their own versions of this already, we are working on a much-desired Photo Mode, which will enable you to take some awesome snapshots of Jesse in the Oldest House. Make sure you unlock all of her costumes to flex by the time the Photo Mode arrives this fall. We’ll have more information on this soon.

New Game Mode

In December, we will release a new game mode for Control that we are currently calling Expeditions. This will be a challenging new end-game mode in which Jesse must help Security Chief Arish explore the mysterious Formation and its strange surroundings. Here you will face the some the greatest challenges that the Oldest House can throw at you. You will need the best gear and abilities to survive. Expeditions is free for all players.


Moving ahead to 2020, there will be two full, paid expansions that our team is hard at work creating: The Foundation and AWE. Both of these will offer new story missions, enemies, and game mechanics, and take place in new locations within the Oldest House.

The Foundation will delve into the history of the Oldest House. At the request of the ever-mysterious Board, Jesse must explore what lies beneath the Bureau as she returns order to the Foundation and the Oldest House itself. Expect things to get weird.

The second expansion, AWE, will take Jesse into a new part of the Oldest House, the Investigations Sector, where the Bureau closely examines Altered World Events.

Finally, we would like to thank everyone from press to fans and the entire community for your support and feedback. The amazing response to Control means the world for us. Keep it coming!

200 more GameStop Stores Set to Close, with More to Follow
Sep 11, 2019 - 6:30 AM - by Evil Avatar

In a conference call with investors today the team at video game and knick-knack retailer GameStop confirmed plans to close 180-200 "underperforming" stores this year, with more to come in the years ahead.

That second bit is the more notable part of this news, as GamesIndustry reports that a GameStop representative alluded to plans for implementing a new, metrics-driven approach to gauging store performance that will lead to many more closures.

"We have a clear opportunity to improve our overall profitability by de-densifying our chain," the representative said during the call. "And while these [180-200] closures were more opportunistic, we are applying a more definitive, analytic approach, including profit levels and sales transferability, that we expect will yield a much larger tranche of closures over the coming 12 to 24 months."

KFC Is Making A Colonel Sanders Dating Sim Game
Sep 10, 2019 - 8:51 AM - by Evil Avatar

Unless this is a very early April Fools joke, KFC (yes, that KFC, the fast-food chicken chain) is publishing a dating sim called I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin' Good Dating Simulator. What even is 2019 anymore?

"From the same people who brought you the bucket of chicken, comes the world’s first Colonel Sanders dating simulator," the game's bizarre product description says on Steam. You play as a promising culinary student as you try to date your classmate, Colonel Sanders. Will the Kentucky fried chicken mogul choose you to be his business partner? Or maybe something much more intimate? "Throughout your journey, you'll be faced with life-changing decisions that will affect your chances of friendship and love. But be careful! Your choices have real consequences with real animated characters' feelings at stake."

I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin' Good Dating Simulator promises to feature nine lovable characters, a secret ending, secret recipes, cooking battles, battle battles, 11 herbs and spices, a dateable Colonel Sanders, and much more. If the writing in-game is as humorous as it is in this product description then the whole thing should be genuinely funny. The art style in the trailer is actually kind of amazing, too. And there's a dog.

RAGE 2 First Expansion Rise of the Ghosts Launches on September 26th
Sep 10, 2019 - 8:29 AM - by Evil Avatar

RAGE 2 'Rise of the Ghosts' Launch Details

An old threat has returned to haunt the wasteland once again in RAGE 2’s first major expansion. Explore a brand-new region, face a lethal new faction, and gain access to a new weapon and ability in Rise of the Ghosts. Get more details on Rise of the Ghosts and how you can get in on the action below.

Walker Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosts

The Ghosts were once a terror in the wasteland. Ruthless, vicious, tactical and cruel, they took what they wanted and left no survivors. Following the Authority Wars, they were nowhere to be found. At the time, many people assumed they had simply been wiped out and they began to fade into wasteland legend. In reality, they had found a higher calling; a strange woman named Iris promised them power and glory if they did everything she said. Iris and the Ghosts fled to the Overgrown City, where for years they underwent intensive brainwashing and were subjected to experiments that left them with powerful and mysterious nanotrite abilities.

Now they’re ready to reclaim their place in the wasteland. Under the watchful eyes of Iris, the Ghosts will prove to be a formidable new foe for Ranger Walker. He’ll need to navigate a huge new region called the Overgrown City and put a stop to their uprising before the Ghosts can gain a foothold in the wasteland. Luckily, he’ll have the new Void ability and the Feltrite Laser Launcher to add to his already-impressive arsenal. Rise of the Ghosts also introduces the new Ghost Motorcycle to the game, which players will be able to find in the Overgrown City and bring back to their Garage.

When, Where & How

Rise of the Ghosts will launch on all platforms on September 19. Download it from the in-game store for 1500 RAGE Coins ($15). You need to be online and signed into your BNET account to access the in-game store.

The Rise of the Ghosts Expansion includes:

• New story
• New enemy faction – Ghosts
• New region to explore – Overgrown City
• New weapon – Feltrite Laser Launcher
• New Ability – Void
• New Vehicle – Ghost Motorcycle

You can also pick up the Digital Deluxe Upgrade for 2000 RAGE Coins ($20).
The Digital Deluxe Upgrade includes:

• Rise of the Ghosts
• Wasteland Wizard Cheat Codes
• Battle Standard
• Progress Booster

This is also the year that a fantastic arcade game known as Gyruss was released. So, click the headline to learn a little bit more about this game, and see how far I get on one quarter with no prior practice rounds.

Game Developer Alec Holowka Commits Suicide After #MeToo Twitter Accusation
Sep 06, 2019 - 4:30 AM - by vallor

On August 26th Alec Holowka, one of the co-creators of the indie hit "Night In The Woods" suffered a #MeToo accusation via Twitter and Video Game press from Zoe Quinn, the subject of the "5 Guys" post which was the genesis of Gamergate.

From Gamerants:

A few days ago, Zoe Quinn accused Night in the Woods developer Alec Holowka of abusing her. Shortly thereafter, the Night in the Woods team cut ties with Holowka, and announced that the game he was working on with them had been canceled. Now we have learned that Holowka has passed away, as announced by his sister Eileen Holowka on Twitter.
Here is a video from The Quartering discussing the events.

Some feel this is part of an overall campaign for Zoe to get back in the spotlight and increase her Patreon revenue, which has dried up, and the death was just a happy accident drawing more attention her way.

Creative Director Ikumi Nakamura has left Tango Gameworks
Sep 05, 2019 - 7:23 AM - by Evil Avatar

Creative director Ikumi Nakamura has very suddenly announced that she's left Tango Gameworks.

After 9 years as Creative director & Art Director at Tango and Zenimax - I felt here is one of ends of the journeys . I learned from the talented people I've worked with and I respect. 🙏😊 Contact me if anyone wants to work with me!

The tweet is a little muddled thanks to the language barrier, but Bethesda confirmed that Nakamura has left the studio and is no longer working on GhostWire: Tokyo. "We can confirm that Nakamura-san has decided to leave Tango and we wish her the best of luck in whatever is next for her," a rep said. "Tango continues to be led by the legendary Shinji Mikami and his talented team in the development of Ghostwire: Tokyo. We look forward to sharing more on what they’re creating in the coming months."

"I DO NOT want to forget appreciation and respect to everything," Nakamura wrote in a followup tweet. "I've also decided to proceed to the new world I can keep myself happy and somebody require me. Now the huge world is showing me infinite possibilities, like an open world video game. Life in NOT linear. "
