easter bunny

Hello once more NAGykees, and thanks for coming back for this Easter special This Week In Gaming. Why is it an Easter special? Because today’s Friday, not Saturday. Yeah, that’s it basically. Also there’s an Easter bunny up there, so I suppose there’s that. Anyway, this week we have some exciting news for people who like to take extended “bathroom” breaks at work, some internal gossip on Titanfall dev Respawn Entertainment, some facts on Steam that will make you feel less lonely, and Microsoft is making a new game. Maybe. There’s other stuff too, but it’s a long weekend and this summary is long enough to not look too suspicious to the editors – at a glance, anyway. So, stuff your face with chocolate and hit the jump.

oculus rift how it works

Hello again NAGyrks, and thanks for taking ten precious minutes off from weekend catatonia to join me for This Week In Gaming. It’s been all about the VR this week, much to my disdain, and we’ll be hearing from Microsoft on what their plans are, we’ll hear from Sony about how this was their plan all along, and we’ll hear from a game developer who thinks the hardware has to reach some tough milestones before he’ll consider using it. Then we have an exciting reveal for Hearthstone enthusiasts, more details on Epic’s Fortnite than you can read in one sitting, some more attempts by EA to get into gamers’ good graces, a frankly ridiculous new Kickstarted product and some exciting new game trailers. So then, don your oversized goggles and hit the jump.

reaper of souls

Hello once more NAGurns, and thanks for coming back for your weekly dose of gaming news free from the shackles of journalistic objectivity. This week we have some more fuel to stoke the console wars fire, a well-known gaming character makes it way into your phone’s operating system, Amazon’s console is totally not a console, Gearbox co-founder Randy Pitchford gets annoyed with a news website (and now, me), Mario Kart 8 is more competitive than you think, the hunt for a certain giant water-beast of a certain FPS is over and there’s a bunch of other news that is somewhat less obscurely described than it is here. There’ll also of course be videos, highlights from the week for NAG and punch and pizza on the table in the corner. So, settle in, grab a glass of watery punch and hit the jump.

projectmorpheus_01

Hello once again NAGushins, and thanks for coming back for This Week In Gaming (or really, just coming back at all; we missed you). This week was stacked with news, with all of the twists, turns and drama of the Facebook Oculus buyout. Find out what Carmack thinks of it, and find out what is (and then later, isn’t) happening. Then there’s the competition, Sony’s own VR headset – and you’d be surprised who’s interested in making games for it. After that we have an update on supervillain King.com’s foray into the stock market, a new take on the sidescrolling shooter, the real reason Epic sold Gears to Microsoft, and 3D Realms is fighting back on the Duke Nukem issue. All that, some more news, a crop of videos and some NAG highlights from the week. Hit the jump.

So lean back, take off your pants and hit the jump.

Watch-Dogs-Image-1

Hello again NAGatronics (thanks, Delano) and welcome again to This Week In Gaming. This week we got the soul-crushing low down on Watch Dogs minimum specs, Phil Spencer says something unexpected about die-hard Xbox fans, one such fan hacks the controller, gaming’s most evil company launches on the stock market, cheaters run amok, one game gets a long overdue patch and another game is just plain long overdue. An scandal gets uncovered and an ex-pro gamer attempts suicide, we get a first look at the new Diablo 3 character and the new not-quite-Megaman game, and there’s more news, videos and things you may have missed this week. Enjoy.

arkham knight

Hello once more NAGunnians, and thanks for checking in again for This Week In Gaming. It was a slow week for consoles, but we did get a couple of juicy tidbits on Valve’s Source 2 engine  from the man himself. And, of course, Hideo Kojima put his face in front of a microphone for as long as people would listen to him. On the gaming side of things, there’s a whole lot going on. Ubisoft explain why they took the decision to delay Watch Dogs, Rocksteady explain while Arkham Knight will next-gen only, new information surfaces about the South Park Stick of Truth censoring, Kojima talks even more and the Serious Sam guys are working on something new. All that along with more news, videos and highlights, after the jump.

batman cold cold heart dlc

Hello NAGonauts, thanks for coming back. This week we have a brand new video-game movie in the works with some star Hollywood writers hammering out the script, Steam has devised a way for us to spend even more money, another misguided American has decided to sue someone for something stupid, Bethesda pimps the Elder Scrolls, a big developer has spent years working on a new IP they’re not willing to talk about and a certain short game has received a shorter price. All that with a crop of videos, other news and NAG highlights, after the jump.

super mario bros original

Hello again loyal NAGgists and welcome back to This Week In Gaming. This time around we have another resolution scandal; who do you think came out top this time? Meanwhile Xbox One is getting a fancy new remote to cement their “home entertainment” image, and a new developers survey shows what platforms are being worked on the most – the results may surprise you. Then in gaming we have Diablo 3 getting some new features, a PS4 exclusive that Microsoft regrets turning down, a game that lets Twitch.tv viewers control it through the chat and an update on the Gears of War reboot. All that along with more news, videos and NAG highlights you than can shake a Media Remote at. Hit the jump.

flappy_bird

Welcome back NAGissians, have I got some scandal for you. Evil empire King.com has stooped to all new lows, the deaf composer who wasn’t deaf claims his hearing loss may have been “overstated”, but did Capcom know about it all along? Then, of course, there’s an all new next-gen resolution scandal; is the Xbox One really just not as capable as the PS4? The Flappy Bird developer also speaks out for the first time about why he really took his game down, and it’s probably not the reason you think. Scandal, drama, regular news and some videos and highlights, all after the jump.
