    Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 Announced, Pre-orders Available Now
    Shawn Zipay

    After multiple weeks and a few months of teases, including a long running ARG surrounding a dating app called Tinder, we now have an official announcement of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. Paradox Interactive made the big reveal just moments ago via a GDC party. The party was "supposed" to be for a new Tinder reveal but thanks to some unintentionally cheesy live-action role playing, it turned out to be a big reveal for Bloodlines 2.

    This is a direct sequel to the previous title that came out back in 2004 on the very same day that Half-Life 2 was released....

    Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul
    Shawn Zipay
    An update to the Steam user interface and library has been in the works at Valve for years now. Today, the company finally feels comfortable enough to show off their Steam UI overhaul and did just that during a presentation at GDC 2019. I'd like to first thank Game Informer and PC Gamer (and again) for a lot of the information and screenshots you'll see below.

    Library
    First up, let's talk about the changes coming to how your Library will look and function with this new update. The Friends list is now integrated into a column on the right side. No idea if this is an optional...

    Oculus Rift S VR Headset Announced - More of a Lateral Move Than an Upgrade
    Shawn Zipay

    Today at GDC, Facebook announced a new version of their Oculus Rift headset that they're simply calling the Oculus Rift S. They announced a $399 (USD) price point for the device that will start shipping later this Spring.

    On paper, the headset sounds like a decent device. It features an LCD 2560x1440 panel (1280x1440 per eye), better pixel density compared to the Rift, updated lenses, an 80Hz refresh rate, updated Oculus Touch controllers (functionally the same as the old ones), an adjustable halo strap similar to PlayStation VR.

    It also features inside-out tracking,...

    As part of today's GDC presentation, Epic Games announced a number of timed exclusives that are coming first to the Epic Games Store. Among these games are The Outer Worlds, Control from Remedy Entertainment, and even some PlayStation 4 exclusives like Detroit: Become Human from Quantic Dream.

    Some of these titles, such as The Outer Worlds, will also appear on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. I guess this just lends more confirmation that Epic is less about purchasing exclusives and more about simply paying companies to keep their games off of Steam. Consumers should not...

    I have recently begun using a service called Shadow which streams a virtual Windows 10 PC with gamer specs. It's superior to this already and it's already available.

    Well, it's superior in the way that PC is superior to console. Shadow virtualizes the PC experience and this is looking to virtualize the console experience, especially the part where you load a disc in and skip the console's system UI completely and all you get is the game.

    Shadow can run on as low as a 4G connection, although you might get issues on 3G. Your ping also plays a major role; ping has always...

    I never played these games but saw them on store shelves all the time, the logo is very familiar to me.
    Looking at reviews and footage of them now, they seem ok in that old janky tactical shooter kind of way, be interesting to see where they take it.

    System Shock Remake - Full Medical Level Gameplay Video
    Shawn Zipay

    In addition to this week's sneak peak at System Shock 3 from OtherSide Entertainment, we get a long look at the System Shock remake. This remake is being handled by Nightdive Studios. Today, they released a 21-minute long gameplay video. This video shows off a full level of gameplay. Specifically, the "Medical" level is shown off here.

    The team makes sure to note that this is pre-alpha footage and not at all final yet. They say that the level still has missing enemies, weapons, effects, and sounds.

    The original System Shock is roughly 25 years old now....

    Third I.G.I. Game in Development
    Shawn Zipay

    A third entry in the I.G.I. franchise is currently in development. I.G.I. stands for "I'm Going In" and the first game, Project I.G.I., was released back in 2000 from Innerloop Studios and published by Eidos Interactive. It had a sequel, I.G.I.-2: Covert Strike, that came out back in 2003.

    I suppose 16 years after the last game is as good a time as any for a sequel. The series has a focus on tactical stealth action. It is an FPS and will actually serve as a prequel to the previous two titles. It's currently in development from Toadman Interactive, a dev studio made...
