QuakeCon 2020 Cancelled Due to Coronavirus Concerns

An update on QuakeCon 2020

To all of our friends in the QuakeCon community,

QuakeCon has always been a special event for us and for you—a time when we gather together to play games and build bonds that, for some, have lasted a quarter-century now.

In recent weeks we have spent a lot of time discussing how we might still move forward with QuakeCon this year, particularly given that it’s the 25th year of the event. However, with all of the logistical challenges and uncertainties we currently face due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s QuakeCon. The health and safety of our employees, volunteers, vendors, sponsors, and players will always be our top priority, and in these times it felt wrong to be talking about a gathering when gathering is the last thing any of us should be doing right now.

While we don’t know what the state of the pandemic will be this August, we do know it will not be possible to complete the work and planning with partners, vendors, volunteers, and others that is required to make QuakeCon a success.

We thank all of you—especially the volunteers—for all your work in building and supporting this event year after year. We hope to work with you to come up with other ways to celebrate the spirit of QuakeCon this August, and we look forward to the return of this amazing event next year.

Until then, be safe, look after each other, and play games.

Peace, Love and Rockets,

The Evil Avatar DOOM Eternal Review
Mar 31, 2020 - 10:55 AM - by Evil Avatar

Rip and tear into a nigh-on perfect action FPS!

Writer Aaron Birch is back today with a review of the newest installment of reboot culture, DOOM Eternal.

Quote:
Whereas the 2016 Doom was a spiritual reboot of sorts to the first Doom, Doom Eternal is, as expected, the same treatment for Doom II. Set partly on Earth, it sees the Doom Slayer once again take on the forces of Hell, only this time there's much more in terms of story, and a greater amount of variety, not just in locations, but also in enemies. As Doom II upped the ante on Doom by adding more complex and varied locations and a few new enemies, not to mention the iconic Super Shotgun, so too does Doom Eternal.

Ryan Reynolds in Talks to Star in Dragon’s Lair Film for Netflix
Mar 30, 2020 - 9:26 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Ryan Reynolds is in talks to star in and produce a live-action feature adaptation of the ’80s arcade game “Dragon’s Lair” for Netflix.

Roy Lee will produce through his Vertigo Entertainment with Trevor Engelson of Underground Films. Don Bluth, Gary Goldman and Jon Pomeroy are also producing. Reynolds will produce through his Maximum Effort production company.

Dan and Kevin Hageman, whose credits include “The Lego Movie” and “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” are attached to write the script. “Dragon’s Lair” put players in the shoes of Dirk the Daring as he attempted to rescue Princess Daphne from the dragon Singe and the wizard Mordroc.

“Dragon’s Lair” was originally released for arcades in 1983 by Cinematronics. The game used laserdisc technology and offered superior graphics and feature film quality animation from Don Bluth Studios.

Reynolds, best known for starring in the two “Deadpool” movies, teamed with Netflix on the action movie “6 Underground” and has been shooting Netflix’s “Red Notice” with Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson. Reynolds is also starring in Liosngate’s upcoming “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” with Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek.

“Dragon’s Lair” would mark the third recent video game-related project for Reynolds following last year’s “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu” and this summer’s upcoming “Free Guy.”

Rogue Company’s Intense Cross-Platform Gameplay Revealed in Explosive New Trailer

Hi-Rez Studios and First Watch Games have released an explosive gameplay trailer for their slick cross-platform team shooter Rogue Company. Delivering action, tactics and a whole lot of attitude, the new trailer reveals Rogue Company’s energetic gameplay and third-person, action movie flair.

Launching same-day this summer on Nintendo Switch, PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Rogue Company features an ever-growing roster of mercenaries, game modes, weapons and gadgets.

Taking on million dollar contracts from governments and special interests, Rogue Company is a vigilante force going where governments can’t to stop credible and imminent threats. Relying on public opinion and popular support, many Rogues embrace their newfound celebrity. Elite, sexy and paid, Rogue Company operates between the lines and on the run.

Headed-up by Lead Game Designer - and former Halo world champion - Scott Lussier, Rogue Company is the debut game from First Watch Games; a band of Hi-Rez Studios developers and industry veterans with experience working on some of gaming’s most famous and successful shooters.

“Gamers should be able to play with their friends, regardless of platform”, says Lussier. “Rogue Company is all about bringing together a huge community of gunslingers and giving them a depth of gameplay to show off their individual style.”

“We're tired of grown-up shooters being overly serious”, says Chris Larson, Executive Producer. “Rogue Company matches a modern, high-style universe with tight, tactical action gameplay. The alpha testers are loving it and we can't wait to welcome more of you in as we gear up for launch!"

Rogue Company is currently in Alpha (apply here), available to wishlist via Epic Games Store and will release this summer on all platforms.

Torchlight III Announces New High-Caliber Hero Class – Introducing the Sharpshooter

Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games are excited to unveil the Sharpshooter, the latest hero class for Torchlight III, the newly announced successor to the critically acclaimed Torchlight series. This new class combines careful precision skills with ranged weapons and magical trinkets to strike down enemies from afar. The Sharpshooter is cunning and willing to bend the rules in order to survive the hordes of creatures running rampant in each of the game’s diverse biomes. This new hero class is currently featured in the Closed Alpha for Torchlight III on Steam and will be available to players worldwide when the game officially launches on PC later this year. Check out the reveal trailer below to see this nimble character in action:

Armed with a signature bow, the Sharpshooter can fire off a barrage of shots to destroy enemies from a distance.

The Sharpshooter joins previously announced hero classes including the magical Dusk Mage, mechanized Forged and locomotive-conducting Railmaster.

This fast-paced dungeon crawler brings fans back to the beloved Torchlight universe to hack and slash their way through a brand new world filled with hordes of goblins, undead and other dangerous Netherim creatures. Adventurers can party up with friends or venture into the vast wilderness alone, where they will find loot, explore dungeons, collect epic gear and build their very own fort to show off to the world. Torchlight III features four unique hero classes (Dusk Mage, Forged, Railmaster and Sharpshooter), plus a myriad of new and familiar combat pets to help players fight their way to fame and glory.

Despite the coronavirus (COVID-19) affecting its projected profits, Sony still expects the PS5 to launch this holiday season.

Speaking with Bloomberg, a Sony spokesperson said there won't be, as Bloomberg puts it, a "notable impact on the launch" of PlayStation 5 later this year. Other facets of the company's business are expecting slashed profits. Compared to its financial forecast back in February, Sony's profits are likely to be about $370 million lower.

Now Playing: 7 Important PS5 Features, Explained

It's possible upcoming first-party PS4 games could be affected by the pandemic, as Sony's Chinese manufacturing centers were shut down for weeks as the outbreak was being managed. At this point, there are no announced delays, with The Last of Us Part 2 arriving in May and Ghost of Tsushima releasing in June.

"Although no issues have emerged so far, Sony is carefully monitoring the risk of delays in production schedules for game software titles at both its first-party studios and partner studios, primarily in Europe and the U.S.," Sony said in a statement.

However, many of Sony's employees are now working from home and a portion of its offices are closed.

"In accordance with mandates from national and local governments, Sony has closed a portion of its offices, mainly in Europe and the U.S., where employees are now working from home," Sony said in a statement. "Additionally, at Sony’s offices in Japan and other areas, employees must work from home, excluding a small number of essential employees."

Plague Inc creators, Ndemic Creations, Give $250k to COVID-19 Funds

Plague Inc creators Ndemic Creations are donating a quarter of a million dollars to help combat COVID-19 around the world.

Quote:
On behalf of all players of Plague Inc. we’ve made a $250,000 donation split between the Coalition of Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

“Eight years ago, I never imagined the real world would come to resemble a game of Plague Inc. or that so many players would be using Plague Inc. to help them get through an actual pandemic,” said James Vaughan, creator of Plague Inc. “We are proud to be able to help support the vital work of the WHO and CEPI as they work towards finding a vaccine for COVID-19”.

...

Major new Plague Inc. update

When arranging our donations with the WHO and CEPI, we were repeatedly asked if we could make a game which let the player work to stop an outbreak. Therefore, as well as providing financial support, we are accelerating work on a new Plague Inc. game mode which lets players save the world from a deadly disease outbreak.
Really enjoyed this game on my iPad (too small to play on my phone). Lots of arm chair Plague Inc experts have added their two cents to this mess. I look forward to the added realism of the new scenario

Landon Montgomery, co-founder of Gearbox Software, has died. The news was confirmed by the official Gearbox Software Twitter account earlier today.

Montgomery worked with some of the best known game series of the last decade, including Half-Life, Brothers in Arms, Halo: Combat Evolved and more. In the '90s he worked briefly with Bethesda Softworks as an artist and level designer. After co-founding Gearbox Software in 1999, Montgomery left the studio in 2010. At the time of his death he was employed by Nvidia...
I didn't get to know Landon until after his Gearbox days. I found him to be particularly perceptive and good at sussing out people's strengths. He was always professional and insisted people treat others with professionalism, something often lacking in the gaming industry.

Horror Legend Stuart Gordon Dies Age 72
Mar 25, 2020 - 8:47 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Stuart Gordon, best known as the filmmaker behind such cult classics as “Re-Animator” and “From Beyond,” has died, his family confirmed to Variety Tuesday night. He was 72.

Although best known for his seminal work in independent horror, Gordon had a varied career that included founding the Organic Theater Company with his wife, Carolyn Purdy-Gordon. The Organic premiered such prominent works as David Mamet’s “Sexual Perversity in Chicago” and “Bleacher Bums,” which starred Dennis Franz and Joe Mantegna. He was a co-creator of the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” franchise, for which he shared a story credit, and produced the film’s sequel and directed an episode of the TV spin-off. In 2005, he directed a film adaptation of Mamet’s “Edmond,” starring William H. Macy. Other films include “Fortress,” “Castle Freak” and “King of the Ants.”

In recent years, Gordon was active in L.A. theater, finding success directing the solo show “Nevermore…An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe” starring his “Re-Animator” star Jeffrey Combs. He also directed and co-wrote the book for “Re-Animator: The Musical,” which won several awards and was praised by a Variety critic, who wrote, “not since ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ has a screamfest tuner so deftly balanced seriousness and camp.”

Gordon also won a Stage Raw Award for directing “Taste,” a two-person drama that premiered in 2014, based on a true story where one man agrees to be eaten by another.

He is survived by his wife, Carolyn Purdy-Gordon, daughters Suzanna, Jillian and Margaret Gordon, four grandchildren and his brother, David George Gordon.

Terrible shame. Re-Animator is one of my all-time favorite movies. I've got the one-sheet poster signed by Gordon in my closet.

Kenny Rogers: Country music legend dies aged 81

Known for his husky voice and ballads including The Gambler, Lucille and Coward Of The County, his career spanned more than six decades.

He once summed up his popularity by explaining that he believed his songs "say what every man wants to say and that every woman wants to hear".

After growing up in poverty on a federal housing estate in Houston, Texas, Rogers began recording with a string of bands, including Kenny Rogers and the First Edition, before launching his solo career in 1976.
I listen to almost every kind of music but my I grew up with my Dad listening to "real" country but it was impossible to avoid "new" Kenny Rogers especially his duets with Dolly Parton.

Weekend Headbanger - What are you listening to?
Mar 21, 2020 - 6:00 AM - by BeardedSonOfNel

Quote:
Rock musician Gene Simmons is to be credited with the "axe" design. In 1978, Gene was searching for a new bass guitar that would either "blend in" or "stand out from" his garish make up and costume, would be a good trademark, and would show his philosophy of how a bass should be handled - like a weapon. After garnering enough wealth from touring with his band KISS, Gene went to renowned luthier Steve Carr to build the first prototype of the axe bass and then the popular bass itself. Since then, the axe bass has been a running trademark for KISS.[citation needed]

In 2012, Gene Simmons commissioned Jim Cara of Original Cara Hot Rod Guitars to develop a chrome and gold plating process for the AXE and Punisher project. As of 2013, the Chrome models are available for purchase by high-end Kiss collectors.

Overwatch Adds New Hero Echo
Mar 20, 2020 - 9:18 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Yesterday, Blizzard unveiled the next character coming to Overwatch: An advanced Omnic named Echo who was created by Dr. Mina Liao, the long-unrevealed sixth founding member of the online supergroup. Today, Echo became playable on the Overwatch PTR, and Blizzard revealed more about her history (Blizzard refers to Echo as "her") and what she brings to the fight.

"Echo is a really special character for us in that our players have known about her for a very long time," game director Jeff Kaplan said. Echo was seen and named in the big Overwatch 2 cinematic released last year, but Kaplan pointed out that she actually appeared long before that: "Players had actually seen Echo in earlier versions of the artwork for Overwatch. She was featured in the Reunion cinematic, where McCree frees her from the Deadlock Gang."

Universal Studio Movies Releasing In Theaters Will Also Release On-Demand This Week
Mar 16, 2020 - 7:55 PM - by vallor

Cnn reports, due to the impact of COVID-19, Universal Pictures will be simultaneously releasing select first run Box Office movies to various On-Demand platforms starting this week
Quote:
With the coronavirus disrupting the global theater marketplace, Universal Pictures is making some of its current film releases available on demand starting this week, the studio announced Monday.

The Comcast-owned studio and its specialty label Focus Features will make films such as "The Invisible Man," "The Hunt" and "Emma," all of which are currently playing in theaters, available to rent on demand services such as Comcast (CCZ), Sky, Apple (AAPL) and Amazon (AMZN) on Friday.

Consumers will be able to rent the films for $19.99 per film for 48 hours.
DreamWorks Animation's "Trolls World Tour" will be also on demand starting on April 10, the same day it's set to be released in North American theaters.
Universal said in a statement that it made its movies available in the home now because of the "current circumstances," which have "made it more challenging to view our films."
A bit too pricey for my taste however, if it does do well, could this be the sea-change people have been waiting for to kill the necessity of the theater experience for first run movies? I think there are still a few spectacle movies but 90% of movies feel like living room fodder anyway. Which is why I think Movie Pass and similar programs saw a rise in popularity.

Xbox Series X: A Closer Look at the Technology Powering the Next Generation
Mar 16, 2020 - 10:01 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Early on in the design of Xbox Series X, the team was determined to deliver the most powerful Xbox ever, which opened a series of discussions about how to define “power” in the next generation of consoles. In past generations, power has been defined primarily by graphics innovation: from the transition from 8 bit to 16 bit graphics, 2D to 3D, SD to HD and finally to 4K.

Today, gamers are demanding more and more games run at 60 frames per second (fps) with high visual fidelity and precise, responsive input. Developers have come up with creative solutions, such as dynamic resolution scaling, to maintain high image quality while not compromising on frame rate, but this is often done to work around the limitations and constraints of current generation hardware. That’s all about to change with Xbox Series X. It’s not just about making games look better, though. It’s about making games play better too.

“While the Xbox Series X will deliver a massive increase in GPU performance and continue to redefine and advance the state of art in graphics with new capabilities such as hardware accelerated raytracing,” said Jason Ronald, Director of Product Management on Xbox Series X, “we don’t believe this generation will be defined by graphics or resolution alone.”

The team knew they needed to build a next generation console that could run games in 4K at 60 fps with no compromises for developers. They also challenged themselves to deliver a level of performance once thought impossible on console, including support for up to 120 fps for the most demanding and competitive games. While they believe resolution and frame rate are creative decisions best left in the hands of title developers, the team wanted to ensure the system was able to support the needs of the largest blockbusters, competitive esports, and innovative independent creators.

Xbox Series X: Fast Load And Quick Resume.
Mar 16, 2020 - 7:42 AM - by BeardedSonOfNel


Click the headline to watch the videos.

Via Gamespot
Quote:
With a custom internal SSD that Microsoft has designed specifically for speed, the Xbox Series X will be able to load games faster and suspend multiple games at a time for quick resume. Both of these features have been spoken about in the past, but two new demos show exactly how they will work.

Faster load times is easy to understand, but seeing it compared to the Xbox One is revelatory. The demo uses State of Decay 2 as an example, which takes notoriously long to first load into your procedurally populated world. On the Xbox Series X this initial load takes around 10 seconds, while the Xbox One takes five times long at 50 seconds.

LEGO's First Nintendo Set Lets You Build Playable Super Mario Levels
Mar 12, 2020 - 7:39 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
The LEGO Group and Nintendo partner to take legendary brick-building to a new level

The LEGO Group announced a partnership with Nintendo that will change the way people interact with Super Mario in the physical world and engage in LEGO experiences.

Both companies share a passion for innovation and play and their collaboration has led to a reimagination of the LEGO building experience, enabling an entirely new way to play inspired by the beloved video game icon, Super Mario.

Neither a video game nor a traditional LEGO brick-based set, LEGO Super Mario is a new product line that features an interactive LEGO Mario figure who collects coins in real-life game levels created with LEGO bricks. The new line will let kids experience the playful world of Super Mario like never before. Super Mario will be brought to life in the physical LEGO world and new levels of challenge and styles of play will be part of the iconic LEGO experience enjoyed by generations.

The video, which hints at what fans can expect when LEGO Super Mario launches later this year, shows a player using an interactive Mario figure to collect coins in a real-life game level that has been created with LEGO bricks.

“We are very excited to bring Mario into the physical world through interactive and social LEGO play”, said Julia Goldin, Chief Marketing Officer, EVP of the LEGO Group. “With this experience we will help millions of kids with love for Mario to engage and play in a completely new way, where they are in control of creating and playing games with their favourite character. By seamlessly incorporating the latest digital technology, LEGO Super Mario is a highly social, interactive and collaborative experience for kids.”

“I have always liked LEGO products and how they help children use their imagination to play”, said Takashi Tezuka, Executive Officer and Game Producer of Nintendo Co., Ltd. “The new product we created together with the LEGO Group seeks to combine two different styles of play – one where you freely build the world of Mario and the other where you play with Mario in the very world that you have created.”

LEGO Super Mario will launch later this year, and more information will be made available in the future.

State Of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition Hits This Friday, Delivers New Map And Improved
Mar 11, 2020 - 8:08 PM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Juggernaut Edition includes all of the previously released DLC (the Independence Pack, Daybreak, and Heartland), and also offers an all-new map called Providence Ridge, which is described by developer Undead Labs as a "rugged logging town." Providence Ridge features five bases, environmental storytelling, and a Sasquatch named Shaggy Jack. Players who are returning to State of Decay 2 will run into a different tutorial a revised user interface, and improved controls (which assign dodge and stealth to different buttons). Heavy weapons are being added to melee combat. There are 10 different kinds of these slow, but powerful tools, including a double-bit axe, "big ol' shovel," and a sledgehammer.

On the gameplay front, all Plague Heart locations are shown to players early on. The safe zone around bases is larger, and the prestige limit has increased dramatically from 9,999 to 99,999. Bug fixes and mission tweaks are said to be in great abundance in this update.

Undead Labs also overhauled the visuals and audio. You'll hear new tracks and effects as you roam the wasteland, and also see more foliage and dramatically different lighting (as you can see in the video above).

You can learn more about Juggernaut Edition by reading State of Decay 2's official patch notes.

Assetto Corsa Competizione Announced for PS4 & Xbox One, Coming June 23rd
Mar 11, 2020 - 7:52 PM - by Evil Avatar

Assetto Corsa Competizione Speeds Onto PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Summer

Global publisher 505 Games and Kunos Simulazioni will bring the ultimate racing simulation game Assetto Corsa Competizione to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles on Tuesday, June 23, available both digitally and at physical retail for £34.99. Players who pre-order Assetto Corsa Competizione for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will receive free access to the recently released Intercontinental GT Pack DLC, which expands the Assetto Corsa Competizione experience to include the official Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli competition. Players who opt out of pre-ordering Assetto Corsa Competizione can still purchase the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this summer for £12.49.

Assetto Corsa Competizione is an extraordinary racing simulation game allowing players to experience the real atmosphere of the GT3 championship, competing against official drivers, teams, cars and circuits reproduced in-game with the highest level of accuracy ever achieved. Sprint, Endurance and Spa 24 Hours races come to life with an incredible level of realism, in both single and multiplayer modes. Born from KUNOS Simulazioni's long-term experience, this racing simulator takes full advantage of Unreal Engine 4 to ensure photorealistic weather conditions and graphics, night races, motion capture animations, reaching a new standard in terms of driving realism and immersion, thanks to its further improved tyre and aerodynamic models.

The Intercontinental GT Pack DLC for Assetto Corsa Competizione introduces four iconic international circuits from four different continents - Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit (South Africa), Suzuka Circuit (Japan), Weathertech®️ Raceway Laguna Seca (United States) and Mount Panorama Circuit (New South Wales Australia). Players owning these tracks will extend the GT Series to the Intercontinental GT Challenge by Pirelli, providing a challenging driving experience using an exclusive layout finely reproduced with Laserscan®️ technology, allowing for extreme track reproduction precision and detail. The Intercontinental GT Pack DLC also adds more than 45 new car liveries, 30 new teams and 50 new drivers along with all-new game modes from the real-life Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli.

The launch of Assetto Corsa Competizione on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is part of a full plan that will cover both PC and console installments of the game:

• This April, the free Assetto Corsa Competizione v1.4 update for PC Steam will introduce new features – including the car showroom, new driver/car personalization choices and additional options for multiplayer servers – and lots of improvements of the game features, UI and algorithms.

• The GT4 Pack paid DLC, adding +10 new GT4 cars, will be available this summer on PC Steam, and this fall on consoles.

• The British Pack paid DLC, offering 3 new iconic circuits that complete the 7-race calendar of the British GT Championship, will be available this winter for both PC Steam and consoles.

"Competizione is the finest expression of the Assetto Corsa brand, aiming to be known as a synonym of realism” said Marco Massarutto, Co-Founder, Executive & Licensing Manager of KUNOS Simulazioni. “Console players have shown their high appreciation towards our approach to racing simulations, so we are certain they will appreciate our efforts to bringing also to their favorite platforms the experience, accuracy and depth that Assetto Corsa Competizione has to offer on PC".

Assetto Corsa Competizione will be available on Tuesday, June 23 and is priced at £34.99; pre-orders at physical retail and digital storefronts will open in all starting today. Additional local offers and/or discounts may apply. The game will be published by Oizumi Amuzio in Japan, and Digital Touch will be the publishing partner for Korea.
