    Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid Fighting Game Announced
    Shawn Zipay

    There was a new Power Rangers game announced this week. Apparently they're still popular enough that they are able to get a dedicated game here in 2019. Who knew? Not me, that's for sure.

    The game will be a fighting game and it's called Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. It's currently in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC from nWay and published by Hasbro.. The consoles will get the game first this April with a digital release price of $19.99. A PC release is happening later on this year.

    There is a special Digital Collector's...

Next is Los Angeles, with a concert slated at the Willshire Ebell Theater for April 6. As you can probably tell by those two links, tickets are on sale now.

    I'd be content with a remaster of Mortal Kombat Trilogy from the PS1. None of this crazy shit. No online. Just give me 2D sprites of amateur actors and I'm good to go.

    The Division 2 - New Story Trailer and Dark Zone PvP Reveal
    Shawn Zipay

    There was some new information dumped today from Ubisoft for their upcoming action title, Tom Clancy's The Division 2. As part of this new information, we learn that the game will feature not one but three separate Dark Zone areas where players can get their PvPvE fix.

    In the first game, the Dark Zone was a single area with multiple difficulty zones. It sliced the game into two separate areas and has been home to all sorts of door camping jerks looking to ruin your day. In The Division 2, there will now be a Dark Zone East, a Dark Zone South, and a Dark Zone West. Each of...

    First impressions, Sonya was my favourite character in MK9, but wasn't anywhere near as interesting in MKX and is now even less interesting when portrayed by Ronda Rousey.
    X-Rays were already an aspect of the game which needed speeding up, but now they've added even more cinematics to more frequently remove control from the player.
    MK has always had projectile attacks so i realise they can't be removed easily, but the zoning spam that happens so often in both Injustice games is already happening here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4Cn...=youtu.be&t=46.

    Shawn Zipay

    Hitman 2 developer IO Interactive is opening a second studio that will allow the developer to focus on Hitman and new franchises.

    Earlier today, IO Interactive announced that they are opening a new studio in Malmö, Sweden. This new studio will help the main studio with ongoing development of the Hitman series, including Hitman 2. It will also allow the studio the freedom to work on new franchises for the future. That's not too shabby for a development studio that was let go from Square Enix only two years back in 2017. IO Interactive retained the rights to the Hitman IP. Since then, IO Interactive developed and released ...

    There was just no way I would have been able to fit everything that there is to talk about with this one if I wasn't being a bit cheeky with the headline.

    'Obey Me' Brings a Holy War to Consoles and PC Later this Year
    Shawn Zipay
    Blowfish Studios and Error 404 Game Studios are working on Obey Me, a new "cooperative holypunk brawler" that is targeting a Q3 2019 release for PS4, XB1, Switch, and PC.

    Obey Me dives into the notion that angels and demons are waging an ongoing war that humans can't see. And just like with other similar stories, the fate of all mankind hangs in the balance. This story is actually expanded upon by a series of graphic novels from Dynamite Comics. It features work from Marvel vet Ben Herrera (X-Men and Spider-Man covers). The first issue will be released in March with five...

    Unity Changes Terms Once More, Commits to 'Being an Open Platform'
    Shawn Zipay

    Unity has had a real interesting seven days. Last week, SpatialOS from developer Improbable was apparently barred from being used within Unity development. SpatialOS is a robust tool that many Unity developers use to add multiplayer to their games. For a time, Unity's new Terms, which went live in early December but were only clarified to Improbable last week, actually affected games that were already released. This led to some quick back and forths between Improbable and Unity through their respective sites. It all seemed to quiet down when Improbable and Epic Games formed a joint $25...

    The fourth episode for The Walking Dead: The FInal Season will be released on March 26, 2019.

    I think we already put up the launch trailer about a week ago, but it probably doesn't hurt to put it up again. And no, I have absolutely no idea if these last two episodes will appear on any other digital distribution platform for the PC. I would sugg...

    EA Cancels Yet Another Star Wars Game (Update)
    Shawn Zipay

    A headline like "EA Cancels Another Star Wars Game" feels like they're a dime a dozen these days. I think EA may have cancelled as many Star Wars games as they have closed studios at this point. Here we are again and here EA is with another cancelled EA game on their hands. This time, the development studio has decided to cancel its open-world Star Wars game that EA Vancouver had been working on. Prior to EA Vancouver working on this title, it was in development from Visceral Games. Of course, EA shut down Visceral Games back in 2017. In fact, when Visceral was working on the game it wasn't an open-world title but rather a more linear action-adventure game that was being directed by...
