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


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...
 

EA Cancels Yet Another Star Wars Game (Update)


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...
 

Review: Last Year: The Nightmare (PC)


A solid asymmetrical survival-horror game that's light on content.

Asymmetrical multiplayer games have been going steady for the past few years now. Some of the biggest games in that particular genre include the long departed Evolve, the still ongoing Dead by Daylight, and even Friday the 13th if you're into that sort of thing. You can now add in Last Year: The Nightmare to the mix as it combines 5 versus 1 multiplayer with elements of survival-horror. As with those other titles, Last Year places one player in the shoes of a bloodthirsty murderer while the rest of the players play as one of five teenagers trying to survive and escape. What it delivers is a well-crafted gameplay experience that ultimately comes up short on content. Last Year: The Nightmare relies on a number of tried and true horror movie clich├ęs. The group of teenagers include the nerdy kid, the popular girl, a stereotypical jock, and m...
 

Jump Force Open Beta Begins January 18


Come January 18th, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will get to try out Jump Force in what Bandai Namco is calling an "open beta weekend." Be it a true beta or a "demo" is besides the point because what really matters is that you will finally get to test drive the fighting game that we have been passing along news about now for months.

Here's how it's going to go down. First off, there will be four separate three-hour long sessions:



Secondly? Well, that's kind of it. Just make sure you download the demo and you can play during...
 

Bungie Ditches Activision, Acquires Rights to Destiny


Moving forward, all future Destiny titles will be self-published by Bungie. I guess even Activision had to tap out after the latest Destiny 2 puzzle, eh?

After eight years, Bungie and Activision are parting ways and with it so does Activision's control over the Destiny franchise. Bungie announced today that they are acquiring publishing rights to their popular shooter.

Mere moments ago, Bungie made the announcement on their website in an aptly named news entry called "Our Destiny."



Bungie continues on to say that they will...

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Scorestreaks and Weapon Loadouts Revealed at Gamescom

    It looks like some fans got a bit of hands on time with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 at Gamescom 2015 this week. As a result, we're getting our first look at the perks, weapons, weapon loadouts, and the scorestreaks that you will be able to utilize in the game. The narration seems to be in German, but we can tell from the images that there are some new toys to play with in Black Ops 3. Some new Scorestreaks include the Guardian, Power Core, G.I. Unit, Hellstorm, H.A.T.R., and Rolling Thunder. We also see some weapons that include a P-06 Sniper Rifle, Weevil SMG, and the "Black Hat" which appears to be a new grenade type. All of this an...

  • Uplink Returning in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

    Uplink Returning in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

    New fan favorite competitive game type, Uplink, will be making its return in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

    This mode, introduced in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, blends together typical FPS action with some high flying hoops action.
    The objective is to bring a satellite drone, which is placed in the middle of the map, to the enemy uplink station. Each team can score one point if the drone is thrown in or two points if the player enters the uplink station with the drone. Teams switch sides at half-time once the timer runs out or if one team scores 10 points. Teams must score 20 points to win the game.
    It's ki...

  • New Competitive Call of Duty Info - PS4, Live Event Viewer, Item Ban System, and More

    Earlier, Treyarch revealed some tasty new details on what eSports fanatics will get to sink their teeth into when Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is released.

    First and foremost is news that the competitive Call of Duty scene is making the switch to the PlayStation 4. This much should have been obvious given how the timed exclusivity deals switched from Microsoft to Sony this year. This is the first time PlayStation will be the focus of Call of Duty eSports since the original Black Ops. Next, there will be a special Live Event Viewer built directly into the game. This feature allows fans to easily watch their favorite competitive matches with the to...

    Building a Better TGN Part 2 - Overview of New and Returning Features
    Shawn Zipay

    Last week I kind of detailed the process of what it took to even get the site up and running following the upgrade to vBulletin 5.4.5 from 4.2.1. Today, I'll go over some of the new features for all of you members out there, plus some of the more forward facing changes made to the site. I'll try to make this short and a bit more concise than last week's entry. Custom StyleThe most obvious thing you will notice when visiting the site is the current site design. I worked for a long time customizing a site design from one of the default vBulletin designs. Customizations include, but are not limited to:...

    Building a Better TGN Part 1 - Banks and Technical Issues
    Shawn Zipay
    As you have probably noticed by now, Total Gaming Network is looking a little bit different than what it was only about a month ago. We are now on the latest version of vBulletin, which just happens to be 5.4.5. We are also on a far more up-to-date version of PHP. We are also on some better server hardware than we were previously. The Boring Technical StuffThis particular version of vBulletin (5.4.5) came out roughly a month ago. We were previously on vBulletin 4.2.1, a release that initially came out in mid-2013. This equates to roughly 5-6 yea...
