Former NAG editor turned megastar indie-developer-with-a-proper-beard-and-everything Geoff Burrows has announced that his debut game, Among the Innocent: A Stricken Tale, will be out at rAge in Joburg this October. GET HYPE.
Just in case those interminable I’M HERE AND I’M SO HOT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW BABY notifications weren’t already enough to push you to download that free Windows 10 upgrade because you’re the kind of person who plays hard to get or whatever, this Friday, 29 July, is the last day you can do that. After that, you’ll have to pay, and nobody likes to pay for stuff they could’ve gotten for free instead.
Besides, Windows 10 is kind of rad. It’s got Candy Crush Saga. Not that I play it, obviously. But I could if I wanted to. Okay, I did. But just that one time. And that other time. Fine, whatever, I like to play sometimes. So what? It’s better than stupid Solitaire.
Gears of War 4 is vreeming out in October, and over on PC, it’s packing more heat than a Lambent Corpser. In heat. That’s, like, double the heat. Actually, do Corpsers even go into heat? They probably lay eggs. I mean, they’re sort of… spidery. But what if they don’t, and they give birth to Wretches instead? We don’t know where Wretches come from. Maybe, at six months or whatever, Wretches spin themselves into a cocoon, and re-emerge, six months after that, as Corpsers. And then, six months later, they spin themselves a new cocoon, and another six months later, they re-re-emerge as Brumaks. Or Berserkers. Or ammo crates. That’s why there are so many of them, just randomly all over the place.
It doesn’t matter.
The point is that this version of the game will feature an unlocked framerate, custom control schemes, support for 4K textures, and much more, developer The Coalition has confirmed.
Greetings NAGeejas and thanks for coming back for This Week In Gaming. This time around a Pokemon Go player distinguishes himself as the master of smartphone animal-wrangling, No Man’s Sky gets into potential legal problems over their “Superformula” (that isn’t theirs), The Witcher 3 gets a sweet, sweet mod, Overwatch gets an insanely big e-sports tournament that launches it into legitimacy, Square Enix makes the worst RPG ever, Nvidia unveils their 1080 killer and Microsoft talks about the handheld that wasn’t. All that, videos, highlights from the week and a bag of potato chips, after the jump.
Pokémon Go fever is still gripping the world, and more and more countries are getting hooked on the game. Japan issued public safety warnings and the game already has a healthy following here, despite not having been officially released. A little while ago I compared Pokémon Go to a bunch of other popular Google searches to demonstrate exactly how popular it is. Let’s revisit that.
The Telkom Digital Gaming League (DGL) will be hosting its Dota 2 Masters tournament this weekend, 22 – 24 July 2016, at the Ster Kinekor head office cinema in Sandton, Johannesburg. The tournament will also be broadcast live on Telkom’s YouTube stream.
Teams from the eight Masters Multi-Gaming Organisations(MGOs) will be ganking it out for their share of the R100,000 prize pool.
Fallout 4‘s DLC pack Vault-Tec Workshop will feature a first for the crafting-themed packs: quests. Usually the DLC that deals with settlement building hasn’t included new missions, focusing instead on giving players more components to build their ideal settlement. A post on Bethesda’s blog sheds some light on what players can expect to do in-between customising their settlements.
I mean, okay, so nerfing Torbjörn was bad, but was it so bad that the people who work at Blizzard deserve to die in a bullet hell? Stephen Cebula thinks so. Actually, I don’t know what exactly made him so fuuuuurious that he threatened to visit the studio “with an AK47 amongst some other ‘fun’ tools”, but whatever it was, it was probably something equally stupid and inconsequential. Some people, hey.
WOOK AT DAT WIDDLE FACE. But don’t be fooled by the twinkle in his eye and the baby teeth. This is the face of a hardcore Street Fighter V button brawler. The hardest corest. At six years old, Tshedza Masheleni, is now the country’s youngest eSports athlete after taking home the bronze medal for third place in the Primary School division of the MSSA’s Free State Provincial Championships in Sasolburg last month. FWD-FWD-HIGH-FIVE.
Call of Duty: InfiniteWarfare‘s marketing campaign has been an uphill battle right from the announcement. Fans reacted to the highly futuristic setting with disdain, to say the least, with the reveal trailer becoming one of the most down-voted videos on YouTube. However, it looks like the game is slowly clawing its way back into gamers’ favour, and a new trailer has been released to highlight its gameplay.
