Bethesda Sends Legal Attack Dogs After Kickstarter Game "Prey for the Gods"
May 28, 2017 - 8:30 AM - by vallor

Unnoticed through all the news the last few weeks was news of another coup for the Bethesda legal team chalking up another win in their quest to completely own any word which might marginally be related to a ZeniMax IPs.

Despite a lack of any similarity of gameplay and a title nowhere near Prey Bethesda lawyers bullied a small indie Kickstarter dev into renaming their game "Prey for the Gods".

International Business News has the story for us

Quote:
Indie developer No Matter Studios has revealed that it has been bullied by Bethesda and parent company ZeniMax into changing the name of its upcoming game Prey for the Gods, which is now called Praey for the Gods.

ZeniMax disputed the use of the word 'Prey', which is also the title of a sci-fi shooter published by Bethesda and set for release tomorrow (5 May).

...

"Something like a trademark opposition can be long and depending on how far someone wants to fight it can be very expensive. We didn't want to spend our precious Kickstarter funds, nor did we want to have to ask for additional funds to fight this in court."
This is getting really tiresome and Bethesda is looking more and more like a the equivalent of a shitty Patent Troll. Prey for the Gods is a frickin sentence and concept, not just a word. Plus the new name is stupid.

Nintendo Switch Version Of Monster Hunter XX Supports Cross-Play With 3DS, Trailer
May 27, 2017 - 11:50 AM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
Capcom has revealed some more details on the recently announced Switch version of Monster Hunter XX.

The game is scheduled to arrive in Japan this summer on August 25. The physical release will retail for ¥5,800 ($52), while the digital version will cost slightly less at ¥5,546. ($49.82).

Monster Hunter XX was initially released for 3DS back in March. The upcoming Switch version features the same content, but now supports 1080p resolution when docked and 720p in handheld mode. Like Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, which released simultaneously for both 3DS and Wii U, players can transfer their save data from the 3DS game to the new Switch version, and vice-versa. Likewise. Monster Hunter Generations players can transfer their saves to the Switch game, though this data cannot be transferred back. The Switch version also supports cross-play with the 3DS title, though it's strictly limited to online sessions; up to four Switch players can play together either locally or online, however.

Capcom also revealed a special edition Switch bundle, which will launch alongside the game in Japan on August 25. The bundle retails for ¥36,280 ($325.87) and includes a copy of Monster Hunter XX along with a special Monster Hunter-themed Switch dock.

Hitman May Survive Sale Of Developer IO Interactive
May 26, 2017 - 10:33 AM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
When Square Enix first revealed its plans to explore a sale of IO, it did not indicate whether the Hitman IP would be sold off with it; it wasn't out of the question that Square Enix could hold onto the rights and allow the franchise to become dormant. But that doesn't appear to be the plan, based on a newly released English transcript of Square Enix's post-earnings results briefing.

"Our decision to withdraw from the IO Interactive business was the result of a review of our portfolio that we conducted as part of our effort to concentrate our resources in order to strengthen our development capabilities," Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda explained. "Because the firm is engaged in the development of Hitman and other renowned titles, we are negotiating with prospective external investors capable of ensuring that these titles carry on."

That last bit is where the promising news comes in. Whether it sells the Hitman IP rights along with IO or is willing to license them out, there's apparently a willingness on Square Enix's part to allow Hitman to continue. As for the other "renowned titles," IO is also the developer of the Kane & Lynch series. It is--or was--also at work on a new IP.

John Wick 3 Details Teased, May Start Shooting Soon
May 25, 2017 - 3:49 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
In an interview with Collider, Stahelski said: "We're currently in the middle of writing it right now," and went onto explain that the movie was very close to being greenlit by producers Lionsgate.

"It's more [about] how fast can we get our s**t together," he continued. "But I would assume that if not by the end of this year, the beginning of next year."

Stahelski also hinted at what fans could expect from John Wick 3 in terms of the movie's scale."We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world," he said. "I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in part 2, that I’d like to go back to [with part 3] and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York.

"So rather than massive set pieces, I'd like to show you cooler and more intricate ones… I think it would be a mistake budget-wise and creatively to just go big and blow up a freeway. That's not our gig. That's a comic book or a Bond gig. We want to show you cool and intricate details. What are those little details in everyday life? Hopefully we make people look at garbage collectors and cleaner vans and homeless people a little differently now."

Multiplayer Zombie FPS Dead Alliance Announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC
May 25, 2017 - 7:44 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Seize the Dead! Zombies Are Your Weapon in the New Team-Based Multiplayer Shooter Dead Alliance

Leading publisher Maximum Games has announced Dead Alliance, an inventive take on zombie games and team-based first-person shooters expected to launch Aug. 29 on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC. Zombies in Dead Alliance are not just the enemy; they are weapons that can be strategically used to distract and destroy unsuspecting human foes in combat. Seize the dead – or find yourself counted among them.

Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where military bases are humanity’s last city-states, Dead Alliance pits warring teams of players against each other for survival in a world ravaged by the zombie plague. It features a variety of single-player and 4v4 multiplayer modes, including Team Deathmatch, Free for All, King of the Hill, and Capture and Hold, as well as the MOBA-inspired Attrition mode and Solo Survival mode.

Dead Alliance lets players customize and upgrade their loadouts with an arsenal of high-powered, military-grade weapons and advanced zombie-controlling tech called zMods. Examples of zMods include the Enrager – a pheromone bomb that turns a single zombie into a soldier of superior strength and resistance on your side – and the PAM grenade, which puts four zombies to work for you, but does not increase their damage resistance. Use these and many more zMods available in the game to get the undead to join forces with you!

Those who pre-order Dead Alliance for $39.99 will receive the “Rapid Dominance” Day One Edition of the game, which contains three bonus loadouts featuring unique weapons and perks for use in multiplayer. Pre-orders are available now at major retailers.

For more information as Dead Alliance approaches release, visit DeadAlliance.com, and follow the game on Facebook and @DeadAllianceGame on Twitter.

Zack Snyder Steps Down From 'Justice League' to Deal With Family Tragedy
May 24, 2017 - 12:11 PM - by Emabulator

The Hollywood Reporter has the story.

Quote:
Snyder tells The Hollywood Reporter he is stepping away from Justice League, Warner Bros.’ all-star DC Comics superhero mega-movie that is in postproduction, in order to deal with the sudden death of his daughter. Snyder's wife, Deborah Snyder, who is a producer on Justice League, also is taking a break to focus on the healing of their family.

Stepping in to shepherd the movie through post and the shooting of some additional scenes will be Joss Whedon, the Avengers filmmaker and creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With Whedon's help, the movie is still on track for its Nov. 17 release date.

Snyder’s daughter Autumn Snyder died by suicide in March at age 20. Her death has been kept private, with only a small inner circle aware of what happened, even as the movie was put on a two-week break for the Snyders to deal with the immediate effects of the tragedy. Zack Snyder says he initially was eager to return to the film, which stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller.

“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it,” said an emotional Snyder in an interview Monday in his office on the Warner Bros. lot, with Deborah sitting by his side. “The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I’ve come to the realization … I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time.”

Grand Theft Auto V Ships 80 Million Units

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
Grand Theft Auto V continues to be a massive success. More than three years after the game's release in 2013, the open-world action game has now passed 80 million units shipped worldwide. This is up from 75 million units back in February. Continued strong sales is no surprise, given GTA V continues to make it onto the top-selling charts in the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

During an conference call after Take-Two's latest earnings report today, CEO Strauss Zelnick said GTA V and GTA Online "outperformed [Take-Two's] expectations during the fourth quarter as they have in every period since they released." GTA Online has been a big winner as well, with the game continuing to see year-over-year growth in recurrent spending. Zelnick said Rockstar is planning "much more" in terms of future updates.

Also during the call, Zelnick praised GTA V for being the "standard bearer for creative excellence" in the video game industry.

'Get Even' Postpones Release Date Following Islamist Terrorist Attack in Manchester
May 23, 2017 - 1:47 PM - by Emabulator

Game Informer has the story.

Quote:
The Farm 51's Get Even, an upcoming shooter that was planned to come out on May 26, has postponed its release following the Manchester terrorist attack yesterday evening. Get Even is now planning to release a month later, on June 23.

Get Even is narrative-focused with an emphasis on psychological horror. In the game, which has photorealistic visuals, the protagonist makes his way through derelict environments with only a phone and gun on hand. You can view the trailer, which features an abandoned warehouse and a young woman tied up and strapped to a bomb, by heading here. Because of the game's themes, Farm 51 felt it was ill-suited to release so quickly following the Manchester attack.

"Given recent events and out of respect we have decided to postpone the commercial release of Get Even," writes developer Farm 51 in a statement. "We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone concerned."

Battlefield 1 Adds Female Soldiers To Multiplayer With New DLC
May 23, 2017 - 12:27 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
Battlefield 1's next big DLC pack is called In the Name of the Tsar, and its main addition is the Russian Army. Alongside four new maps, the pack will include Russian vehicles, soldiers, and weapons. This week, EA revealed a cool detail about the map pack: the Russian Scout class will be represented by a female soldier from the Women's Battalion of Death.

The publisher recently announced this on Twitter, giving no other details about the Russian Army or the Scout Class. However, this is a notable addition to a series that until now has predominately featured men in multiplayer modes.

This seems like a good way to increase awareness of a part of World War I that isn't widely known. The Women's Battalion of Death was formed in 1917 as a desperate attempt by the Russian Provisional Government to inspire morale and support for the war effort. Although women had been serving in small numbers in the standard Russian Army before this, some women pressured the government to create female-only units. Several of the resulting battalions were sent to the front lines to fight against Germany. Estimates of the number of women who fought range in the several thousands.

Finding that the hapless man has no memory of anything, Kuon decides to take the amnesiac into her care, naming him Haku. As their journey takes them across the land, Haku will (reluctantly) encounter colorful characters (yes, that means more animal people), build deep relationships, battle ruthless enemies, and find himself inexorably dragged into the political machinations of the mighty nation of Yamato.

Resident Evil Movie Franchise Set for a Reboot
May 22, 2017 - 12:49 PM - by Emabulator

Variety has the story.

Quote:
The “Resident Evil” movie franchise has not ended after all.

Details such as the reboot director, stars, and how the reboot would fit into the franchise narrative are being kept under wraps. But Martin Moszkowicz, chairman of the board at Constantin Film, did confirm to Variety at the Cannes Film Festival that a reboot is in development at the giant German production company, which owns rights to the franchise and has produced all of its installments.

The franchise was set to end with this year’s “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” which grossed $312 million worldwide after its January release, including an eye-popping $160 million in China alone. Sony helped sow the seeds of success by securing a release for “Resident Evil: Afterlife” and “Resident Evil: Extinction” in China.

Based on the Capcom video game, the series launched in 2002 with Paul W.S. Anderson directing, and Anderson, Jeremy Bolt, Bernd Eichinger, and Samuel Hadida producing the first of a six-movie series. The “Resident Evil” movie franchise has earned $1.2 billion worldwide to date, making it Europe’s most successful independent horror-genre movie franchise in history and the highest-grossing film series to be based on a video game.

Uncharted Movie Now A Prequel, Will Star Young Spider-Man Actor Tom Holland
May 22, 2017 - 12:35 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
Sony Pictures has decided on a new direction for its film adaptation of the Uncharted series. Rather than casting someone as the Nathan Drake we've become accustomed to seeing in the games, it's going back in time.

According to Deadline, Sony has decided to turn its Uncharted movie into a prequel. It will feature the 20-year-old Tom Holland--the current big-screen Spider-Man--in the role of Drake, with Shawn Levy (Real Steel, Night at the Museum) directing. Inspiration was drawn from a sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, which revealed the first encounter between Drake and his longtime buddy, Victor Sullivan. A script has not yet been written for this new concept, and there's no word on who will pen it.

LawBreakers’ Gravity-Defying-Combat coming to PlayStation 4

PlayStation 4 gamers will be able to beat gravity into submission and compete in gravity-defying competition in LawBreakers, the new multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) from renowned game designer CliffyB and Boss Key Productions.

LawBreakers will be enhanced for PS4 Pro and promises to challenge even the best players to bring their skills, get off the ground and deliver death from every angle as they experience thrilling fast-paced, omni-directional gunplay with innovative movement systems and combat abilities.

From the mind of Bleszinski, LawBreakers is set in a brand new futuristic world where the laws of gravity have been turned upside down. A war between the Law and the Breakers rages across a variety of iconic locations such as the boiling oceans of the Santa Monica coastline to the gravity-ravaged Grand Canyon and beyond.

Today Nexon also revealed its business model for the game which sees the base game starting at just $29.99. In addition, the company confirmed that there will be no season pass-style program and that all future content updates will be free. Also, there are no “pay-to-win” mechanics in the game, just a robust offering of cosmetics for players to earn via the game’s Stash-Box system.

“With LawBreakers, we wanted to honor the skill-based FPS games of yesteryear, all while embracing the new and pushing the genre in our own unique way,” said Bleszinski. “We found that messing with gravity, and having it mess with the player, adds a dynamic vertical element that will challenge players of all skill levels to go above their limits. Add in a variety of character role play-styles that go beyond the basic ‘tank, sniper and medic,’ a price point that we feel is fair to the player and the fact that it’s just damn fun to play - we’re confident LawBreakers will be one of the best valued and most challenging FPS games on PC or console.”

"We're thrilled to be partnering with CliffyB and his team to bring such a unique and challenging combat experience to PS4,” said Owen Mahoney, President and CEO, NEXON Co., Ltd. “This marks a major milestone for Nexon as we launch onto a home videogame console for the first time in the company's history."

The PS4 version of LawBreakers will make its debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, June 13-15, and attendees will be among the first to experience its unique brand of gravity-defying combat.

Microsoft Clarifies Xbox Scorpio Frame Rate/Fidelity Stance
May 21, 2017 - 4:44 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
Microsoft has clarified another detail about the upcoming Project Scorpio console.

Xbox engineering lead Mike Ybarra confirmed that Microsoft will not force developers to ensure there is frame rate parity between Scorpio and Xbox One games. Responding to someone on Twitter who said this would be the case, Ybarra stressed that no such mandate is in place. "No, there isn't," he said to the suggestion that there is a requirement that a game's Xbox One frame rate is the same for its Scorpio version. "This is up to the developer to choose, for their games, what they want to do."

In another tweet, Ybarra laid out Microsoft's policy on this even more clearly and directly: "Developers are free to choose how they use the power of Project Scorpio for games. We have no requirements limiting framerate or fidelity," he said.

Next Terminator Movie Will Happen, Arnold Schwarzenegger Says
May 21, 2017 - 11:56 AM - by Emabulator

When asked about the next Terminator film Arnold Schwarzenegger said "it is back." GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
There has been much uncertainty about the future of the Terminator franchise, following the commercial disappointment of 2015's Terminator: Genisys. Now original star Arnold Schwarzenegger has weighed in on the subject, and has stated that the series will continue.

Speaking to Screen Daily from the Cannes Film Festival, Schwarzenegger confirmed that he had met with James Cameron, who created the series and directed the first two movies. "It is back," he said. "It is moving forward. [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise. I will be in the movie."

The rights to the entire franchise revert back to Cameron in 2019, and Schwarzenegger's comments imply that the director will become involved in its future direction.

However, Cameron is about to start production on the Avatar sequels, so it is highly unlikely he will direct another Terminator. Earlier this year, was rumoured that Deadpool director Tim Miller was in the running to helm the next Terminator film, but there has been no further news about this.

Game Informer has the story.

Quote:
At this year's BitSummit gaming event in Japan, Grasshopper's Goichi Suda announced he'll continue to work on projects related to The Silver Case, the remaster of the development studio's first project. The first is the even more obscure sequel to the Silver Case, The 25th Ward, which is comprised of chapters following characters from the first game. Originally only released on Japanese cell phones, the game is one of Grasshopper's hardest-to-play titles, making this remaster welcome news.

Nintendo Switch Helps U.S. Games Market to 10% Gain
May 20, 2017 - 10:56 AM - by Emabulator

MCV has the story.

Quote:
Sales of the Nintendo Switch have remained strong for a second month in the US, driving up the annual comparisons in NPD's monthly report.

The overall market is up ten per cent at $636m. Hardware was up 37 per cent at $195m, with software up six per cent at $304m and accessories up four per cent at $126m.

The numbers represent the highest April hardware sales since April 2011.

“[It's] the first time the industry has experienced two months of consecutive growth since November 2015,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said. “The Nintendo Switch led hardware sales, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Persona 5, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, drove software sales.

“Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the month’s top-selling title. As a property, Mario Kart is the all-time best-selling Racing franchise in the US. Persona 5 experienced the strongest debut month for any title in Persona franchise history, with packaged dollar sales five times that of the previous best-selling debut, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4.

“Year to date, the top two games in dollar sales are both published by Ubisoft: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, the best-selling game of the year through April; and For Honor, which charted at No.2 through April.

Destiny 2 PC will not release at the same time as consoles!
May 18, 2017 - 4:05 PM - by Julio

Quote:
Destiny 2 has been scheduled for release on September 8—but, as it turns out, that is only for the console versions of the game. The PC launch date, as Destiny 2 director Luke Smith told us at today's reveal event, hasn't actually been set.

"We're not committed to a PC date yet, but at Bungie we're totally committed to making a PC build as great as we can," Smith said. "Our partnership with Blizzard and being on Battle.net, we want to make sure that this version of the game has the time it needs to bake in the oven so it's a delicious piece of bread when it comes out."

Smith added he couldn't comment on how much of a delay the PC version would suffer, but said Bungie would try to provide a date "in the coming weeks."

Destiny 2 PC will be Exclusive to Battle.net
May 18, 2017 - 11:19 AM - by Julio

The Verge has the story.

Quote:
In a surprising announcement at today’s Destiny 2 event, Bungie revealed that the PC version of the Destiny sequel will be exclusively available on Blizzard’s Battle.net platform.

Battle.net will be used to both purchase Destiny 2 as well as for online gameplay, making Destiny 2 the first non-Blizzard developed game to use the system (which also handles the storefront and online components of Starcraft, World of Warcraft, Diablo, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, and Hearthstone.) It’s good news for Destiny, given that Battle.net is historically reliable when it comes to online gameplay, and also means that Destiny 2 will be able to take advantage of Battle.net’s robust player community. Bungie however, will still be in charge of maintaining Destiny 2’s servers.
I hope this means dedicated servers... at least voice chat will be somewhat easier since it's integrated into the games.

Chris Cornell, the powerful, dynamic singer whose band Soundgarden was one of the architects of grunge music, has died at 52.

Mr. Cornell died Wednesday night in Detroit, his representative, Brian Bumbery, said in a statement that called the death “sudden and unexpected” and that said the singer’s family would be “working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause.”
On a personal note, it feels like part of my childhood is dead today. RIP Chris, you were one of my favorite singers of all time.
