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 clichés. 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...

    VR has made great progress, and itís set to continue doing so


    VR Technology Will Change the Gaming World Virtual Reality technology was spoken about widely before it actually arrived. It used to be referred to on television shows as an invention likely to come along in the future and change the world. Well, VR is here, and although it has had a slow start, it looks likely to come in to its own, and soon. It seems like it has already become another piece of technology that everyone has some version of at home. One of the biggest growth areas of this tech has been gaming, with handhelds and consoles alike adapting games to support VR graphics and headsets for a while now. Many forecasters have predicted that this industr...

  • A Recap of Winners from The Game Awards 2018

    A Recap of Winners from The Game Awards 2018

    In case you missed The Game Awards this past Thursday, you missed out on a lot of new game reveals. More importantly, you missed out on the main focus of the show, the awards!

    Fortunately for you, I have a full recap of the winners here. Right off the bat, you'll want to know that God of War won the Game of the Year award. It actually came as quite the surprise given how most of the other awards went to Red Dead Redemption 2. The Esports Athlete of the Year went to the always entertaining SonicFox. He went on stage to accept his reward in full fox suit and gave a passionate speech. Before departing the stage, he had just one more thing to say.

  • Ashen Released on Epic Games Store and Xbox

    Ashen Released on Epic Games Store and Xbox

    Try to stick with me on this one. Ashen was released on December 7, 2018 for the Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store. It is a console timed exclusive, which means it "should" hit other consoles like the PlayStation 4 at some point in the future. It "may" also be a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store, which means it will come to other digital retailers on the PC at some point.

    Why are we not sure? Because every publisher and developer are being cheeky as hell when it comes to this whole "exclusive" thing with the newly launched Epic Games Store. See, Epic tossed around a lot of money to get "exclusive" releases on their platform. Ashen is one of those games despite it being promoted on Steam, with its own Steam Store page,...

    Enjoy the Top Picks for Nintendo Switch Games in 2018



    No matter how great it is on its own, a console is nothing without good games.

With that in mind, take a look at the best titles that have come to the Switch so far, all available to download or buy right now, for yourself or that special gamer close to your heart.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Announced for Consoles

    Crash is back! ... Again! This time the famous bandicoot is returning with Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, a remastered (honestly looks like a total remake) version of his classic Crash Team Racing from the first PlayStation. Developer Beenox and publisher Activision are working hard to deliver an HD version of one of the best kart racing games ever released. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is aiming for a June 21, 2019 release on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and the Xbox One. It will include online multiplayer racing, which was something that was never in the original release, for obvious reasons. All of this goodness was revealed during ...

    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...
