Windward

Wed, 05/13/2015 - 00:08
Saw this over at Grogheads. Seems like a worthy investment to me. I just hope the dev keeps at it. Too many of these clever, low budget games are abandoned before they hit critical mass.

Announcement: Elite: Dangerous coming to Xbox One

Tue, 05/05/2015 - 03:35
Hi everyone,


When asked, I’ve said we’d be mad not to consider bringing Elite: Dangerous to console. Well, that madness is about to end! Today we’re announcing that we will be bringing the full Elite: Dangerous to Xbox One this year. Xbox players have supported Frontier well over the years, and thanks to games like Zoo Tycoon and ScreamRide we know the hardware well, so Xbox One is a natural fit for Elite: Dangerous’ console debut.

Elite: Dangerous on Xbox One will be the complete and authentic Elite: Dangerous experience. It will not be "dumbed down". We’ll be working with an all-new audience, but that doesn’t mean a change in direction for the game, and nor does it mean slowing development on the PC version. The second of our updates – Wings – is being beta tested by some of you right now, and the third will be coming in the spring, free of charge. We’ll be talking more about the third major update – Powerplay – soon!

More players across more formats means we can devote more resources to development. The more players we have, the better the game will become. Elite: Dangerous is a living game and it will keep growing on all our formats so long as people are excited to play it.

I’m also pleased to announce PC, Mac and Xbox One players will all share the same overarching narrative and galaxy state. That means even more players contributing to the wars, power struggles and Community Goals across the galaxy.

If you want to keep up to date on our Xbox One release you can sign up to be kept informed at http://www.elitedangerous.com/xboxone .

With the new Mac and Xbox One players joining us we’ll see new faces on the forums and we hope you’ll make them feel welcome. The Elite: Dangerous community has always been strong, and I’m sure it’ll be even stronger the more it grows.

Thanks for playing, and Right On, Commanders.

Black Ops 3

This could be...interesting. Having a CoD shooter set in a Deus Ex reality offers a lot of possibilities:



We'll know more in two days.

In Praise of Battlefield 4

Tue, 04/21/2015 - 18:33
Like I wrote in another thread, I have to say that BF4 turned out to be one of the best shooters ever made. Yes, EA/DICE deserve to be put in the stocks for the launch - not just because they sold a product they knew they was not ready for launch, but because by doing so they could have killed a now classic iteration to the BF series. But DICE did not disappoint, and now BF4 offers one of the most attractive and intense modern shooters ever made.

And here is why:




Eat your heart out, Arma. ;)

BTW: it is also worth saying that BF4 has one of the best sound designs I ever heard. You can almost hear every round being fired, every round ricocheting, etc. I wished the vid showed more infantry and the sounds of an intense firefight.

Seriously, now is a great time to get in on the fun as the entire BF4 package can be had for a song.

Star Wars: Battlefront

Fri, 04/17/2015 - 20:11
Tired of all things Star Trek and Star Wars, but I could see this being an entertaining setting for the next Battlefield game (that is what this is going to be, right?).



Info: http://starwars.ea.com/starwars/battlefront

Great news here:

Star Wars: Battlefront will not use Battlelog after all


Never understood the point of Battlelog. :rolleyes:


I wonder if anybody is going to be stupid enough to pre-order? :nuts:


I hope the next real Battlefield game...goes back to World War II. I can't believe I am saying that, but seeing what DICE has accomplished with BF4, it makes for a compelling choice. Having combined armed WWII battles in such a destructible environment would be really fantastic. So, either WW2 or Battlefield: Cyberpunk (i.e., near future a la Black Ops) would be my choices. :smoke:

Spin Tires

Tue, 03/31/2015 - 08:35
Pals and lads, as a proud part of PC masterrace you should definitely be aware of an epitome of physics' simulation so far, of SpinTires. It has an absoltuely astonishing physics simulation, nice graphics, quiet big modding community for such a popularity ( http://www.worldofmods.com/spin-tires/ ), the most realistic vehicle's behaviour so far. There is no need writing a wall of text explaining SpinTires' features, just care to look at it's official trailer at youtube. You'll mostly likely be impressed.

Looking for Current or Former US Naval Personnel for Future Design

Tue, 03/17/2015 - 11:02
If you have served or are serving in the US Navy and have been aboard ship and are interested in helping me with a game design please contact me via the forum and I will discuss some ideas with you.

I am looking to do a game with multiple add on modules that would probably keep the players going for some time.

Let me know if you are interested. Anyone with ocean physics knowledge would also be welcome.

Permission to post granted by Scott Tortorice

Gamers!
I am recruiting participants to take part in a research study I am conducting as part of my Doctorate in Forensic Psychology. The study is looking at the differences in motivations, personality differences, and behavioural outcomes based on choices made in video games. Participants need to have played Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. If you would like further details or to take part in the study, follow the link below:

https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1752216/MW2

The questionnaire should take no more than 20 minutes to complete

Please be aware, in order to prevent “thread bumping” I will not be replying to anything else posted on this thread. If you wish to contact me to discuss the study, please use the contact details provided from the study page.

Thank you for taking the time to have a look at this post.

Shadowrun Chronicles

Tue, 03/03/2015 - 17:00
The scuttlebutt on Steam is that this game needs more time, so I fear this is going to get off on the wrong foot. But, having said that, I am hopeful that something good comes from this. I like the XCOM look:

Quote: SHADOWRUN ONLINE BECOMES SHADOWRUN CHRONICLES AND SETS LAUNCH DATE


Hoi Chummers!


When we announced our cooperation with Nordic Games last week, we told you that there were more exciting news on the horizon for the upcoming days and weeks. Today we’re going to share not one, but two red hot pieces of intel with you. So hold on tight – these are big ones!

NAMING GAME, PART II
Some of you might recall that in January we asked about the name Shadowrun Online or a possible different name. Back then we proposed Shadowrun 2076, but after reading through all your feedback and suggestions (thank you again for your great ideas!) and some more internal discussions, we headed your call and came up with a new one a good number of people seemed to like. So from this day forward, Shadowrun Online will be known as – drumroll, please! – Shadowrun Chronicles!

We think the new title does away with a couple of associations people had with “Online” that didn’t apply to our game and which led to some disappointed buyers and backers. “Chronicles” expresses our goal to continue to tell stories and release new content evolving from the collective actions of our players over time. As many of you have already surmised, the first chapter will be called Boston Lockdown, making the full title of our launch version Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown.

LAUNCH IN 3 … 2 … 1
A lot of people have asked us “When is this game going to come out”? We know we did take longer than we initially expected (and then some), but we’ve pushed through and are now approaching the finishing line fast. “How fast”, you ask? Very fast: We’re proud to announce that Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown will be available in retail stores as well as on Steam and other digital platforms on April 28th 2015.

We’ve also updated our trailer with some new footage and with the new title and launch date, so have a look!





We hope you agree that these are indeed exciting news and we’re looking forward to discussing the game with all of you. See you in the Shadows, Chummers! EDIT: Just saw this from one of the devs in response to the "it's not ready!" threads popping up. :D Be that as it may, this does sound pretty good:

Quote: Well, we do have over 40 mission plus side missions - so the game won't be done quite so fast. I agree we need to make more pronounced balancing adjustements (which partially we did already in our current internal build) and with the additon of cyberware, mage/shaman endurance (affected by cyberware) as well as an overhaul over the skill trees, I think there are a number of good improvements on the way.

Glitch Hunter CCG

Thu, 02/12/2015 - 17:38
Hurray! I have some game news to share. :D

I happened to spot this on Blue's News. It is a CCG that clearly seems inspired by Shadowrun. I definitely could get behind that as I have found CCGs to be a nice, leisurely diversion. Anyhoo:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-cyberpunk-ccg


Quote: If you are a fan of CYBERPUNK or fast paced digital CCG's, then this is the game for you!

Glitch Hunter is the lean, brutal, digital collectible card game for PC & Mac, set in a vast retro-futurist realm where mega-corporations, renegade hackers and street gangs compete for dominance of Hypernet. From the dynamic team of developers, who were involved in the making of Star Wars: The Old Republic, Alan Wake, Gatling Gears and the award winning indie game Last Inua. I actually think I am going to back this game, too. Reminds me a bit of Crossfire. As cyberpunk is the only genre that is still holding my attention (darn you Shadowrun and Frozen Synapse!), I think it might be worth the monetary risk.

War of Rights

Wed, 02/04/2015 - 01:18
A new Civil War game titled, War of Rights

Quote: War of Rights is a multiplayer game set during the perilous days of the American Civil War, in the Maryland Campaign of September, 1862. Campfire Games is devoted to presenting the gruesome and glorious elements of the period, while maintaining the highest level of historical accuracy and realism as is possible with the wonders of CRYENGINE.

Players in the game will be able to play on multiple battlefields of the campaign, from the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers where the Siege of Harper's Ferry took place, to the ridgelines of South Mountain, and to the meandering waters of Antietam Creek at the Battle of Antietam. Additionally, players will also be able to choose from a list of regiments that fought in each battle as well as what rank to fight as, whether they want to slog it out as a lowly private, or if you want to orchestrate the carnage and mayhem as a major general.

Uniforms and bodily features will all be customizable for other players to see as you march and fight in the lines of battle according to the tactics of the period. As a General, you will operate in your headquarters equiped with a map of the battlefield and constantly receiving reports of friendly and enemy positions. Send out new orders to the regiments to move forward, or fall back - all in real time. The orders will move down the chain of command, to the Colonels, Majors, down to the Captains in charge of the individual regiments, all of whom have the option to follow the orders of their trusted commander, or rebel against his wishes and fight as you see fit.

Each map contains a period reconstruction of the buildings, farms, forests, roads, rocks, and Fancy Flowers that existed so players can fight through the streets of Harper's Ferry, in the wooded heights of Fox's Gap at South Mountain, or in the wheatfields and Bloody Lanes of Antietam. Players can feel the whiz of deadly shot and shell fly by their bodies, or hit their comrades or themselves as they scream in a bloody hail from their wounds. Limbs will fly and blood will be spilt once again as Campfire Games brings the fighting of the Civil War right to the player's computer screen!

Will you heed the Union call against the traitors? Or will you fight to defend your family and livelyhood with the Confederacy? You decide! Already don't like the fact it's focusing solely on multiplayer. But I admit, it looks downright amazing.

Some renditions of battlefields showing the in-game rendition and the historic photographs they used:
