  • Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Noob Saibot, Plus Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa Reprises Role as Shang Tsung


    Two additional characters were revealed this past week for Mortal Kombat 11. These are in addition to the other two, Jacqui Briggs and Kotal Kahn, which were revealed a few days ago as well. This weekend's latest additions include the return of Noob Saibot and none other than Shang Tsung.

    Noob Saibot is being added as a regular roster character and is included with the base game. Shang Tsung, on the other hand, will be the first DLC character added to the game after its launch. However, there are a few other cool tidbits of info when it comes to Shang Tsung.

    Classic RTS S.W.I.N.E. is Getting an HD Remaster for PC, Coming this Spring


    The classic real-time strategy title, S.W.I.N.E., is getting an HD remaster for the PC. The new release is now appropriately called S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster, and is targeting a release this Spring.

  • Battlefield V 2019 Roadmap Reveals New Map Releases and New Theater of War

    DICE has finally provided the roadmap for Battlefield V through Fall 2019. Included in this roadmap are mentions of new maps, which look to begin in May, and a new theater of war. Given the name of the new theater, Awakening the Giant, slated for Fall 2019, is the upcoming theater of war.

    Given the title of that new theater, I think it's safe to say that they're referencing the United States. This is based off of the famous quote from Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto in reference to the United States following the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan.

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


    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....

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


    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.

  • The Outer Worlds, Remedy's Control, Detroit: Become Human, and More Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusives


    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...

    Third I.G.I. Game in Development


    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...
