Review: Judgment (PS4)

The same, but different.

Sega, specifically the Yakuza team at Sega, are really damn good at what they do. The primarily Japanese developer has been on a roll with their stellar Yakuza-focused releases this generation that include Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 6. All of these titles have received high praise both from myself and from other media outlets these past few years.

It should then come as no surprise that the level of quality found in those titles does not take any sort of hit with the team's latest release, Judgment. Make no mistake about...
 

EA Attempts to Distance Themselves from 'Loot Boxes' by Calling them 'Surprise Mechanics'

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a surprise mechanic.

EA and loot boxes, loot boxes and EA. In some people's minds, there is no better pairing save for "gamers" and "rising up." For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles. They have included loot box mechanics in games like Madden with their Madden Ultimate Team card packs, FIFA with the similar Ultimate Team mode, Battlefield 1, and perhaps most notably, Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Chivalry 2 Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

Another Tripwire published title revealed as an EGS timed-exclusive.

The Chivalry series is making a comeback at what could be a very interesting time. Despite fierce competition from Mordhau, Torn Banner Studios announced that they are working on Chivalry 2. It will once again be a multiplayer first-person "slasher" set in medieval battlefields. The game, published by Tripwire Interactive, is targeting a 2020 release on the Epic Games Store.

    Layoffs Hit Thief Developer Eidos Montreal

    It is perhaps not that uncommon after a major title is shipped to see some additional help let go. Extra hands are brought on during development that are suddenly no longer needed once the game is released. It may be a common occurrence but it is no less sad to hear.

    The latest round of layoffs have impacted 27 people at Eidos Montreal, the development studio behind Thief and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Square Enix confirmed the unfortunate news today with RPS.

  • Rocksteady Claims That a Single Character in Arkham Knight Has Same Polygon Count as Entire Arkham Asylum Environment

    In an interview with Game Informer, Rocksteady shared some information about Batman: Arkham Knight. One of the things they shared was that a single character in Arkham Knight has the same polygon count as an "entire Arkham Asylum environment."

    Lead character artist, Albert Feliu, shared some insight.
    "At the beginning, we started making characters that were about three to four times the polygon count and texture sizes of Arkham city," Feliu told the magazine.

    "As we kept going with every character we just pushed it more. It's the kind of thing that sounds insane. Like one character is as big as the polygon count of Arkham Asylum, the whole environment."

    The final game has the Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, and "more" going against the Caped Crusader. Blah blah blah. The important addition here is the Batmobile! The iconic vehicle is now going to be a core element of the gameplay. Gotham's streets have been widened up a bit to accommodate the new gameplay feature and it's all designed "to integrate smoothly with Batman's gliding and...
