Watch Almost an Hour of Death Stranding Gameplay

A lot of gameplay footage that may finally provide a lot of answers.

The marketing for the Kojima Productions game, Death Stranding, has left consumers with more questions than answers. It's a game from the mind of Hideo Kojima, so of course the marketing was going to be odd. The problem was, there are a lot of people that just have no idea about what the game was even about even after the numerous trailers.

Maybe sitting down and watching 50 minutes of gameplay will help clear up that confusion. If that doesn't work, then maybe a breakdown of the gameplay footage from...
 

Final Fantasy VII Remake Tokyo Game Show 2019 Trailer

The trailer is at the bottom after these boring words.

Square Enix showed off an all new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake this week at the Tokyo Game Show. The new trailer offers a fresh look at gameplay, the slums of Midgar, and a peak at the mini-games and summons. Midgar is home to the Shinra Electric Power Company. This kind of totally evil company is in conflict with Avalanche, a resistance group fighting to keep their planet alive. You will also get your first look at some of the Shinra operatives known as The Turks.

Square Enix also included their new artwork...
 

Cube World is Coming to Steam

Let me take you back to the year 2013...

In 2013, a little game called Cube World came out in an "alpha" release. It was a cute, stylized adventure-RPG that offered a ton of freedom, battles, exploration, and more. A big appeal of the alpha was being able to have all of these adventures with your friends in one world. To its credit, the limited content of the alpha was quite enjoyable but the promise of bigger and better was always just around the corner. The problem came when it was just never updated! Eventually the developer went dark.

We would sometimes...

  • Far Cry 4 is Probably in Development

    Far Cry 4 is Probably in Development

    This may be the least surprising news we're posting today but it seems as though Far Cry 4 is in development at Ubisoft Shanghai. A recent CV listing on LinkedIn shows that the studio is working on the "next" Far Cry game, which is presumed to be Far Cry 4.

    Hell, maybe it's Blood Dragon 2, which would also be just as nice to see. According to VG247, this isn't the first mention of a new Far Cry game being in development.

  • Dota 2 New Bloom Festival Update Includes Terrorblade

    Dota 2 New Bloom Festival Update Includes Terrorblade

    Yesterday, the first day of reveals for the upcoming "New Bloom Festival" update for Dota 2 included a brief bit of background on the event. It will have new gifts and items galore as players take on the Year Beast.

    Today, Valve has revealed the addition of Terrorblade to the roster. He's that friendly looking fellow at the top of the page.

    Here are Terrorblade's abilities.
    Reflection - Create a double of your foe, which then attacks its original as it slows their movement.
    Conjure Image - Summon forth an illusion of yourself to aid you in battle.
    Metamorphosis - Embrace the darkness within, trading your melee attack for a ranged strike while granting additional damage.
    Sunder - Sever the soul of an ally or enemy, exchanging your health for theirs.

    With the addition of Terrorblade comes some new cosmetic items for him. If you purchase any of these during the New Bloom event, you will get an "Exalted" quality on the item.
    The Fractal Shard of Inner Abysm - Arcana Item

    Deep in the hell of Hell, Terrorblade lay bound behind fractal walls, sentenced to an eternity of twisted contemplation. He stared long into the reflection of his own worst self. And long did his worst self stare into him. Now they rise together, a single entity more powerful than ever before....

    When equipped, this item grants these custom upgrades to Terrorblade:
    Several new animations - Altered voice - New base skin & model with special ambient effects - New Hero icon, portrait, loadout pose & minimap icon - New spell effects and icons - Socketed with a gem that tints the coloring of Terrorblade and all of his abilities - Custom death effect for Terrorblade's victims

    The Arcana is arriving on February 6. The upcoming 6.80 update will also include (among other things) a Random Ability Draft. At level 11 you can enjoy this mode that finds each player randomly being assigned a hero. Each hero's abilities are placed into a pool as each player then takes turns choosing which abilities their hero will bring into battle. Yes, that means that heroes will be using abilities not native to their character. I'm sure that will make for some interesting times.

    Changelog for Dota 2 6.80 Update

    Spoiler: 
    GENERAL - You now lose one gold per second if you haven't picked a hero after the selection timer runs out in All Pick - All Pick selection time increased from 60 to 75 - All Pick pre-creep time reduced from 90 to 75 - Roshan no longer stops upgrading his hp/damage/armor at 45 minutes - Roshan upgra

  • League of Legends Boasts 27 Million Daily Players and 7.5 Million Concurrent Players

    Riot Games revealed to the Wall Street Journal, that League of Legends is doing a-ok for itself to the tune of 27 million daily players and a peak of 7.5 million concurrent players every day.

    Every. Day.

    Let those numbers sink in a little bit. 27 million people play League of Legends on a daily basis. That's absolutely massive. It's even more impressive when you find out that back in October 2012, they only had 12 million people playing the game daily. The concurrent count is also up 50% from the 5 million peak they revealed in March of 2013. That's all well and good, but how much money is the free-to-play title (with optio...

  • Digital Foundry Compares Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Framerate on Xbox One vs PlayStation 4

    Digital Foundry confirms what was mentioned just the other day when it comes to the framerate differences between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

    In nearly every instance, it seems as though the PS4 version runs at or near 60FPS on average while the Xbone manages to hit just 30FPS.

    For Xbox One, we can only speculate, but we suspect that a lower overall performance resulted in even more noticeable judder were the game to remain unlocked - which would look really unattractive compared to the capped 30fps frame-rate we see in the final game.

    Next Six Months in DayZ to See Vehicles, Hunting, Base Building, and More

    Over the next six months of development, Bohemia Interactive and DayZ creator, Dean Hall, hope to bring a wealth of new features to the game. The game is still very much considered to be in the alpha phase of development but can be found on Steam Early Access for $29.99 (USD).

    Given this alpha stage, it should be expected that there will be a ton of new features coming to the game. In the next six months, the team hopes to include new features such as drivable vehicles, camping, hunting, base building, an improved stamina system, and more.

  • Judge Throws Out $11 Million Award Given to Original John Madden Programmer

    Judge Throws Out $11 Million Award Given to Original John Madden Programmer

    Back in April of 2013, a lawsuit was filed against EA and EA Sports from one of the original programmers for the John Madden Football series, Robin Antonick. They claimed that EA never paid him for his work which was apparently copied for future games from his original work.

    In June, a jury agreed with Antonick and found that EA did use code and features developed by him in Madden from 1990 to 1996. The problem here, says U.S. District Court Judge Charles Breyer, is that the jury did not compare each version of the game in a side-by-side comparison. Instead, their decision was only based on an expert witness.
