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...

    Fear the Wolves Improves New Player Experience with New 'Unified' Update


    Today, the "Unified Update" was released for the battle royale style game Fear the Wolves. This update for the Early Access title aims to improve the new player experience. The benefit of some of these changes made for new players will also benefit veterans that are still playing the game. Beyond these quality of life improvements, the update also adds in a new waiting room, vaulting, voice chat, and more.



    Though still in Early Access on Steam, Fear the Wolves is currently aiming for a full release in "early 2019."

  • You'll Only Have One Chance to Play the Resident Evil 2 Demo

    You'll Only Have One Chance to Play the Resident Evil 2 Demo


    Capcom announced a limited time "1-Shot Demo" for Resident Evil 2. This demo will be made available January 11 through January 31. During this time, interested players will be able to download and play this demo on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    And now, the catch. It's not called the "1-Shot Demo" without reason. Capcom has decided to give players just one 30 minutes to survive the demo. If you die before the 30 minutes are up, you can attempt to go again with whatever time you have left. If you beat the demo within 30 minutes, you can play again...

  • Evolution Board Game Makes Transition to Digital this February on PC and Mobile


    On February 12, those on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android will get to play a digital version of the strategy board game called Evolution. Evolution is being adapted to a digital world courtesy of North Star Digital Studios. I don't play board games, so I'll let the press release do most of the work on this one.



    Evolution will retail for $14.99 on PC and Mac via Steam. It will be released on iOS and Android as a "free-to-try" game. If you like what you play, you can purchase the full version for $9.99 on these mobile platforms. Plus, all those that purchase...

  • Soldier: 76 Confirmed to Be Gay in Latest Overwatch Short Story

    Soldier: 76 Confirmed to Be Gay in Latest Overwatch Short Story


    Blizzard released a new short story for Overwatch today entitled Bastet. The latest story delivers heaping helpings of lore for those of you who are into that sort of thing.

    Among the big reveals in Bastest are little snippets in the lives of the Overwatch fighters from days long gone. For instance, we find out how Ana lost her eye. We learn that Reinhardt is not very good at stealth. And perhaps the biggest news, at least for those who make all of the rule 34 drawings, is the fact that Soldier: 76 is gay.

    The reveal came about as Ana catches Soldier: 76 going...

    Photo Mode Announced for Metro Exodus


    Deep Silver and 4A Games announced today that Metro Exodus will include a Photo Mode. It will be included at the game's release, which just happens to be February 15.



    Though the Photo Mode is included on all platforms (PS4, XB1, & PC), PC players will also get Ansel support. To add, PC players will also get the benefit of that lovely RTX tech to really make their screenshots stand out.

    I'm also seeing that this is the first of a week of "daily announcements" for Metro Exodus. It will be very interesting to see what the rest of the week...

    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...
