Laser Unicorns’ cult-popular, retro-nostalgic 80s-’em-up Kung Fury is getting the sequel treatment, with a proper feature-length movie starring… Michael Fassbender? This is a thing that’s totally happening, you guys.
Today, AMD launches their Raven Ridge APUs, a project that has been in the works for a very, very long time. AMD planned ahead of time for Raven Ridge by allowing motherboard manufacturers to include video ports and build in all the required elements to support integrated graphics on their future processors. Although Raven Ridge shares the same socket as Ryzen, it’s very likely that AMD’s upcoming 400-series of motherboards will support it more fully, including shipping with updated video output options across the range of motherboards.
Ahead of the game’s release tomorrow, Warhorse Studios has dropped a like-no-big-deal, 20-something GB mandatory update for its medieval-’em-up that would’ve been entirely inconceivable to gamers five years ago. Actually, maybe even now. But in five more years? One year? Not so much.
One week ago a data dump of Microsoft’s future plans for Windows 10 was revealed by Brad Sams over at Thurrott.com, and included details for transitioning over to a future where Windows 10 in S Mode only runs store apps by default, and consumers will have to make the conscious decision to switch over to the fully-fledged version of the OS just to gain access to desktop applications that aren’t available in the store. Along with this, Microsoft is making more changes to how they sell Windows 10 Home to consumers, and it’ll take some options off the table that PC enthusiasts used to enjoy before. And it’s much more confusing as a result.
Since missing E3 every year since it was announced in 2012, CD Projekt Red’s much-hyped tech noir RPG might just be on the list for this year’s show. The studio has confirmed with Gamespot that it’s attending the event, although what exactly that means is a matter of speculation for the moment. CDPR doesn’t, however, have any other projects in development besides Gwent: The Card Game, and who even books a slot for something that’s already in public beta, anyway.
Greetings NAGilzus, and thanks for coming back for This Week In Gaming. In the news this week is the mystery developer behind Metroid Prime 4, a Donkey Kong supervillain comes out of his lair to defend himself, Nvidia talks the global GPU shortage, Capcom has a new bestselling game of all time, PUBG makes its mobile debut and Fortnite teases an insane amount of new content. All that, videos and more highlights from the week, after the jump.
Spider-Man’s goth anti-friend Venom is getting his own movie, starring Tom Hardy and lots of action-type stuff. Cars smashing into one another, people being angry, that sort of thing. We’ve seen precious little of the film, though, until now – Sony has released the first teaser trailer, and it’s heavy on angst and Tom Hardy, but light on Venom.
The first time your NPC ally shows up in the middle of a gunfight in Far Cry 2, it’s like the heavens have opened up and sent you an angel. Far Cry 5 has something similar, and Ubisoft has woven together a lovely trailer to show off the selection of tough-as-nails ladies and gentlemen who will be lending a helping gun during your fight against the Project at Eden’s Gate cult.
Space. The final frontier. Or it was, until our spaceship made an unscheduled and somewhat, uh, explosive stop over an uncharted planet somewhere on the starry verges of Nusquam Prime and made that the final frontier instead. Humans are adaptable like that, and besides, the cryo bay was starting to smell like farts anyway.
First launched on Steam Early Access in 2016, and now in beta with a proper, for real release imminent, RimWorld is a sci-fi management sim in which the player must establish and maintain a colony of survivors on an unpredictable new world. Almost everything in the game is randomly generated according to a responsive AI, with an emphasis on unique experiences over prescribed objectives, and inevitably ends in catastrophe. Or maybe Tarryn and Dane are bad at the game.
Game publisher Activision has confirmed that a third, “major content” update is in the works for launch in time for the holidays, preceded by a second – presumably not so “major” – expansion sometime in May.
