Over the weekend a simple tweet was posted from the Hello Games account that stated "No Man's Sky was a mistake". It wasn't long before the tweet was deleted and Hello Games' Sean Murray explaining that the studio's Twitter and email accounts were hacked. Which explains the supposed emails that Polygon received from Sean Murray apologising for the state of the game. Case closed then. Except it gets a little stranger.
Until November 7 you'll be able to play the first episode of Telltale's Batman series on Steam for free. Which is a pretty good deal because, well, it's free. As per our review the first episode tells a pretty solid Batman story, whilst hinting at a larger and more interesting narrative. One that subsequent episodes are so far delivering on. So yeah, you could also chalk this up to getting people interested enough to invest in the additional episodes.
And by under we mean $1999. Available next Wednesday, November 2, the MEDION PC packs a GeForce GTX 1070 under the hood, as well as a Intel Core i7-6700 and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. When it comes to dedicated all-in-one gaming rigs this is pretty good value, although we're not too sure what quality of parts and build the MEDION brand has. But as it also comes packed with a keyboard and mouse and a copy of Windows 10, this might be a cheaper alternative than putting it all together yourself.
Ubisoft's showing at PAX Australia this year is looking pretty strong with the publisher bringing versions of all of its biggest upcoming titles. Including For Honor, Watch Dogs 2, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Steep, Just Dance 2017, and Ghost Recon Wildlands. A special interactive Watch Dogs theatre is also coming. Plus, a few "lucky" people will get to get to experience the flatulent power of "the revolutionary Nosulus Rift". Which lets players smell the farts in the latest South Park game.
That fittingly, makes very little sense. Labelled a "conceptual CG cinematic", it certainly looks cool though. And with the game going gold, it's on track to hit its revised released date of November 29 for PS4 and Xbox One. With development on the main game wrapped up, the team at Square Enix will now shift their focus towards Season Pass and DLC content that will take the form of episodic character pieces as well as an online co-op mode.
Celebrating the launch of Titanfall 2, AusGamers favourite son Joab Gilroy will be leading a team of AusGamers pilots into the mech-filled trenches to take on the evil forces of planet Stevivor and their dressed-in-black military leader Luke Lawrie. The fate of the galaxy rests in the capable hands of one Joab Gilroy. Or, to put it simply, AusGamers will be going up against Stevivor to prove once and for all that, yep, Joab is really good at games. Which is why we've got our chants ready for the 6:30 PM event.
The Xbox Elite controller may seem a little silly with its Ancient Antiquity from the Qing Dynasty-like pricing, but it's one solid and well built controller. So good in fact that it continues to sell extremely well and is the pad of choice for pro Xbox gamers. At the time Sony said something along the lines of "yeah, that's not for us", but in a recent announcement it looks like PlayStation 4 is getting it's own line of pro controllers, thanks to partnerships with Razer and Nacon.
After last week's debut it looks like we've got a little bit longer to wait before Nintendo are ready to give us full details on it's new home gaming console, the Nintendo Switch. Stuff like the price point, peripherals, what's under the hood, and what launch titles we can expect. Plus that small little detail of actual in-game footage. Scheduling the event for January 13 makes a lot of sense as we're just about to head into the holiday season and every few days another AAA game gets released.
With a directorial career spanning many years and "films" like House of the Dead (2003), Alone in the Dark (2005), In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (2007), Postal (2007), Far Cry (2008), BloodRayne: The Third Reich (2011), and many more, "film" director Uwe Boll has announced that he's calling it quits. Citing declining Blu-ray and DVD sales alongside self-financing his movies, the move comes with a sense of bitterness towards the industry. And it's lack of Uwe Boll support.
PlayStation Plus members can expect a pair of indie titles next month with both Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture and the B-movie inspired The Deadly Tower of Monsters being free for PS4. Additional PS4 and PS Vita titles will also be free, including PS4 cross-buy capability for the two PS Vita offerings -- Letter Quest Remastered and a game and incomplete mathematical equation called Pumped BMX+.
