Bungie Fires Composer Marty O'Donnell
Apr 16, 2014 - 5:41 AM - by Jhooud

From Gamasutra, apparently Bungie has fired long-time composer Marty O'Donnell. Probably best known for his work on Halo, O'Donnell had been working on Bungie's upcoming Destiny. Now, not so much.

A post on Bungie's website reads... Which sounds fairly friendly. However, O'Donnell posted the following on Twitter...

Which doesn't sound friendly at all.

See the Gamasutra post here.

From a fan's perspective, this feels quite a bit as if Lucas would have fired John Williams. Fan or not, the music of Halo is pretty damn iconic.

Thanks also to Mr. Lake!

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Teases Jade Concept Art
Apr 15, 2014 - 10:17 PM - by bean19

Michael Ancel, director of Ubisoft's Beyond Good & Evil 2, teased new concept art for the game's main character Jade during a livestream of Rayman Legends. While the sequel to this original Xbox title first had a trailer released five years ago, word since has been scarce. However, it appears that the title is finally in production as the developer has revealed that it will be released on PC, Playstation 4, Wii-U, and Xbox One.

I love the Rayman games, but would love to see this title get made even more.

Ubisoft pulls an Oprah: Free Nexus 7 Tablets for the Press!
Apr 15, 2014 - 5:05 PM - by lockwoodx

Ubisoft hands out Nexus 7 tablets at Watch Dogs event:

Quote:
With Watch Dogs launching across current-gen and next-gen consoles, as well as PC next month, Ubisoft is ramping up the promotion. That includes holding press events to show off the game to journalists, many of whom will end up reviewing Watch Dogs.

One such event was held last week in Paris, and it has been revealed by attendees that Ubisoft decided to give everyone who turned up a Nexus 7 tablet. Why? That hasn’t been explained officially yet, but you can see how this can be viewed negatively. After all, these are the individuals who will give Watch Dogs a review score, which many gamers rely on to help them make a purchasing decision.

Many of the journalists who attended and came away with a Nexus 7 are stating it is going to a charity. Keeping it, of course, could also be viewed negatively, especially if that person or their publication ends up giving the game a high review score. We’re waiting to hear if there is some tie-in the game that would make this whole thing make some sense — such as giving people a chance to test out the game’s tablet integration — but so far we’ve heard nothing about it.
Way to make everyone feel awkward Ubi.

Bohemia Interactive has announced the release of the first Expedition One content update for its space sim, Take On Mars. Space cadets can now launch a manned mission to the Red Planet and set up camp.

Quote:
Bohemia Interactive, the creators of the award-winning Arma™ series and DayZ™, today released the first portion of their Expedition One content update for Take On™ Mars.

The next portion of Take On Mars’ Expedition One content update will include resource extraction/transfer, habitat pressurization, and marsonaut vitals - and is scheduled for release in May 2014.

Wasteland 2 - Los Angeles Sneak Peek
Apr 14, 2014 - 3:03 PM - by Emabulator

Quote:
Newport Beach, CA – April 14 2014 – The Wasteland 2 beta has been out for several months now, and players from 181 countries have put in 26 million minutes or almost 50 years of gameplay time. Based on beta testing metrics and feedback, inXile Entertainment estimates the game will take about 50 hours to complete for a regular playthrough.

Less than half of the game is currently available in beta form on Steam Early Access, with an update coming next week that will add another major area. After that update the beta will include most of the Arizona portion of the game. Many of the game's zones have completely different states based on the choices you make.

“I felt it was important for us to exceed our Kickstarter backers' expectations and deliver a truly deep RPG,” says Brian Fargo, CEO. "There is a tremendous amount of gameplay that is either easy to miss or mutually exclusive, so while those 50 hours will suffice for a single play-through, there are plenty of reasons to go back for a second one.”

inXile Entertainment is also unveiling more of the second half of the game, which takes place in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. Where Arizona contains many areas from the original and is defined by its arid desert-scape, Los Angeles features the ruins of familiar landmarks overgrown with wild plant life, crawling with weird creatures, and dangerous mad cults. There are hints of a threat from this region to not just the Desert Rangers, but all of humanity. Will Ranger Team Echo be able to find and halt this threat?

CCP Cancels World of Darkness MMO, Closes Studio
Apr 14, 2014 - 11:24 AM - by bean19

Gamespot reports that Eve Online creator, CCP Games, has regretfully cancelled their World of Darkness MMO and shutdown the studio that was working on the project in Atlanta.

Quote:
The studio says it was "falling regretfully short" in its goals of creating an vampire-themed MMO. Following the cancellation, 56 employees at the Atlanta, Georgia studio have been laid off. Some of the team are said to have been offered other roles within the company, with the remaining staff at the studio now working on games set in the EVE universe.

Employees who have lost their jobs were given severance packages and assistance in securing new work, the company says.

"The decision to end the World of Darkness MMO project is one of the hardest I’ve ever had to make," said CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson in a statement. "I have always loved and valued the idea of a sandbox experience set in that universe, and over the years I’ve watched the team passionately strive to make that possible."
One of the best tabletop games I've enjoyed was in this setting, and I love the old Vampire: The Masquerade game. I'd love to see someone do something good with this IP, though I'd like an open-world single-player RPG like Skryim more than an MMO.

PAX East: Next Mass Effect Details
Apr 14, 2014 - 11:17 AM - by bean19

While the developers at Bioware are definitely not announcing the fine details of the next Mass Effect game at this point (an official announcement is more likely at E3 coming up in early June), fans were able to get a few minor details out of them at the PAX East conference. Specifically, the next Mass Effect will likely come to the Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles and will continue to include same-sex romance options.

Quote:
Asked if the next Mass Effect will allow for same-sex and inter-species relationships, Rootsaert said, "We can't divulge that. But, I'll just say that inclusivity is part of the BioWare mandate. So, we do our best."

Another fan asked about what platforms BioWare is considering for the next Mass Effect game. MacMillan offered a tantalizing tease that we could see the game come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but he wouldn't confirm one way or the other.

"It's kind of tricky to officially comment on that, but I mean, gen4 [being Xbox One and PlayStation 4] looks pretty awesome and Mass Effect's an awesome-looking game," McMillen said. This comment drew a rousing round of laughter from the audience.
Predictable, but I love this series so much, I'm just glad to hear it's coming along.

Titanfall 'Expedition' DLC Announced, Hits With 3 Maps in May
Apr 13, 2014 - 5:50 AM - by Evil Avatar

In the spirit of charging a lot of money and not getting much in return, Respawn Entertainment has announced the first 3-map pack for Titanfall, the $DLC$ coming out in May for a whopping $9.99.

Quote:
Today during our panel at PAX East, we revealed details on Expedition, the first DLC map pack for Titanfall. Coming this May, Expedition will introduce three new maps to the Frontier including Runoff, Swamplands and Wargames.

In the wake of the Battle of Demeter, IMC Expeditionary Forces travel deep into Frontier space to recover from their recent defeat. On an uncharted world, the IMC begin construction of a new fleet operations base, using newly acquired water collection and filtration plants to support the new base. When drainage operations reveal ancient ruins and artifacts of an unknown origin in a nearby swamp, Spyglass activates an archaeological team to investigate the site. To maintain battle readiness at the new base, IMC Pilots use simulation pods to train for anticipated Militia raids, based on lessons learned in Angel City and IMC Airbase Sierra.

Titanfall Expedition is the first of three new content packs with each pack available for $9.99. For fans looking to get all three content packs while saving a few bucks, the Titanfall Season Pass is the way to go. Available for a one-time price of $24.99, the Titanfall Season Pass is available for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC and delivers all three content packs as soon as they become available.

PC Gaming Alive and Dominant
Apr 12, 2014 - 5:05 PM - by lockwoodx

Quote:
"Ars reports on a panel at PAX East which delved into the strength of the PC as a platform for games, and what its future looks like. The outlook is positive: 'Even as major computer OEMs produce numbers showing falling sales, the PC as a platform (and especially a gaming platform) actually shows strong aggregate growth.' The panelists said that while consoles get a lot of the headlines, the PC platform remains the only and/or best option for a lot of developers and gamers. They briefly addressed piracy, as well: 'Piracy, [Matt Higby] said, is an availability and distribution problem. The more games are crowdfunded and digitally delivered and the less a "store" figures into buying games, the less of a problem piracy becomes. [Chris Roberts] was quick to agree, and he noted that the shift to digital distribution also helps the developers make more money — they ostensibly don't have everyone along the way from retailers to publishers to distributors taking their cut from the sale.'"

Firaxis Announces Civilization: Beyond Earth at Pax East
Apr 12, 2014 - 10:06 AM - by bean19
Sid Meier's classic is getting a reboot in the form of "Civilization: Beyond Earth"!


Quote:
"Today at PAX East, Firaxis announced Civilization: Beyond Earth. It's a new Civ game inspired by their sci-fi strategy classic Alpha Centauri. Beyond Earth is currently planned to launch this year on the PC. According to Game Informer: 'Beyond Earth presents an opportunity for Firaxis to throw off the shackles of human history and give players the chance to sculpt their own destinies. Civilization games typically have a set endpoint at humanities modern age, but Beyond Earth has given Firaxis the opportunity and the challenge of creating a greater sense of freedom. ... The five different victory conditions that represent that next major event in human history are tied to the new technology web. At the start of the game, players will choose leaders and factions (no longer bundled with one another) and choose colonists and equipment to settle the land. Once descending from orbit, the technology web allows players to move in a number of directions.'"

My daughter has become addicted to comic books, I get her Spongebob, My Little Pony, Scooby, Scooby Team-Up (With Batman!) and a bunch more. There are a lot of good kids comics on the Free Comic Book Day giveaway list this year, more than most years where they tend to focus on stuff for the adult collectors.

My buddy Bear Brubaker sends along word that he finally finished transcribing the classic Weird Western story Six-Gun Gorilla and preparing the file for download on the Kindle for only $2.99.

Quote:
"A strange expression came to O'Neil's eyes. He pulled the gun out and examined it. It was not the first time he had handled it. He knew all about this strange toy from his master."

O'Neil, the Six-Gun Gorilla, was adopted by kindly old prospector Bart Masters after a sailor brought him from Africa to San Francisco. When the ruthless Strawhan Gang murders Bart, O'Neil straps on his deceased owners gun and goes rampaging across the Old West on a path to revenge.

Along the way he encounters Outlaws, Lawmen, Prospectors and Redskins. None of them can stop O'Neil on his quest for justice.

Strange and Compelling, the story of the Six-Gun Gorilla pulls you in and takes you along for one wild Old West-style runaway train ride.

EvAv Giveaway - Dragon Age The Masked Empire
Apr 11, 2014 - 6:27 AM - by Evil Avatar

Up for Giveaway today is a pre-release copy of Tor's new Dragon Age novel, Dragon Age: The Masked Empire.

Quote:
The previous three Dragon Age novels, Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne (March 2009), Dragon Age: The Calling (October 2009), and Dragon Age: Asunder were well-received by fans and further established the dark, heroic nature and epic scale of the Dragon Age Universe. Dragon Age: The Masked Empire expands and illuminates new corners of Thedas.

Empress Celene of Orlais rose to the throne of the most powerful nation in Thedas through wisdom, wit, and ruthless manipulation. Now, the empire she has guided into an age of enlightenment is threatened from within by imminent war between the templars and the mages, even as rebellion stirs among the downtrodden elves To save Orlais, Celene must keep her hold on the throne by any means necessary.

Fighting with the legendary skill of the Orlesian Chevaliers , Grand Duke Gaspard has won countless battles for the empire and the empress But has he fought in vain? As the Circle fails and chaos looms, Gaspard begins to doubt that Celene’s diplomatic approach to the mage problem or the elven uprisings will keep the empire safe. Perhaps it is time for a new leader, one who lives by the tenets of the Chevalier’s Code, to make Orlais strong again.

Briala has been Celene’s handmaid since the two of them were children, subtly using her position to help improve the lives of elves across Orlais. She is Celene’s confidante, spymaster, and lover, but when politics force the empress to choose between the rights of Briala’s people and the Orlesian throne, Briala must in turn decide where her true loyalties lie.

Alliances are forged and promises broken as Celene and Gaspard battle for the throne of Orlais But in the end, the elves who hide in the forests or starve in the alienages may decide the fate of the masked empire.
