Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title

Quote:

Talion and Celebrimbor return in Middle-earth: Shadow of War, sequel to the smash-hit Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, available as an Xbox Play Anywhere title on Xbox One and Windows 10 beginning August 22, 2017. The title will also be available for Project Scorpio following the console’s launch this holiday season.

Players will wield a new Ring of Power and confront the deadliest of enemies, including Sauron and his Nazgul, in a monumental battle for Middle-earth. With an original story featuring our two heroes from the first game, Middle-earth: Shadow of War will have you going deep behind enemy lines to forge an army in the hopes of turning all of Mordor against the Dark Lord himself.
Developed by Monolith Productions, the open-world action-adventure game is brought to life once more through an expanded version of the award-winning Nemesis System. The robust personalization from the first game is now applied to the entire world where environments and characters are all shaped by player actions and decisions, creating a personal world unique to every gameplay experience.

In the coming days, Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for digital pre-order on both the Xbox Store and Windows Store. As an Xbox Play Anywhere title, if you purchase a digital version of Middle-earth: Shadow of War on either the Xbox Store or Windows Store, you will automatically have access to the game on both Xbox One and Windows 10 at launch – and for Project Scorpio at its launch this holiday season – at no additional cost.
Xbox Play Anywhere enables gamers to save their Middle-earth: Shadow of War progress, DLC (including add-ons, Expansion Pass and in-game unlocks), Gamerscore and Achievements to their Xbox Live cloud-synced player profiles, so they can pick up where they left on another Xbox One or Windows 10.

LG is making a SteamVR headset that will compete with the HTC Vive

And the Oculus Rift, of course. A prototype will be shown off this week at GDC.



Quote:

Valve has announced that South Korean electronics corporation LG will be producing a new VR headset for the SteamVR tracking system. A prototype of the head-mounted display will be shown at GDC this week, where LG will take feedback from developers before it settles on the design of commercial units.

"The LG HMD prototype is designed to deliver a high fidelity, next generation VR experience," reads Valve's press release.

Back when the HTC Vive was announced, I thought it was a little curious that the software and tracking technology were called SteamVR but the headset itself was branded HTC. But Valve's intentions soon became clear: to build tracking technology that other hardware companies can take advantage of, not to sell a single package like the Oculus Rift.

Pricing and other details will be announced at "a later date." Given that the headset is still in the prototype stage, I imagine that could be a year or more off. Still, it's exciting that an HTC Vive and Oculus Rift competitor is emerging so soon, and we'll have people at Valve's GDC booth this week to find out more about it.

Peter Moore is leaving Electronic Arts to become the CEO of Liverpool FC

The former EA Sports boss makes a move into IRL soccer.

Quote:

Liverpool FC, one of the most famous soccer clubs in the world, announced today that it has appointed Peter Moore as its new Chief Executive Officer. And yes, it's that Peter Moore, formerly of Sega, Microsoft, and nearly a decade at Electronic Arts, most recently as the chief competition officer of its competitive gaming division.

Quote:

In a message of congratulations, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said Moore will "leave an incredible legacy" at the company. "Peter led our sports business to some of its biggest moments as President of EA Sports. As our Chief Operating Officer, he helped us navigate the transformation of our company and the evolution of our business in a digital world. *In the past year as Chief Competition Officer, he has driven EA’s rapid expansion in competitive gaming. *Above all, through his time at EA, Microsoft and Sega, Peter has been a statesman and advocate for our industry," Wilson wrote.

"I believe deeply in following our passions and dreams in life. *Spend every moment doing something that you love. *We’ve been fortunate to have Peter doing that with us here for almost a decade. *We could not be happier to see him take the helm at Liverpool, and I personally could not be more honored to call Peter a dear friend for life."

In its somewhat less verbose announcement of the move, Liverpool FC said Moore will assume the role in June, and report directly to the team's owner, Fenway Sports Group.

Moore, who was actually born in Liverpool and is known for his long-standing support of the club, takes over from Ian Ayre, who is departing at the end of this month to assume the managing director role at German club 1860 Munich.

Moore will work alongside the still-newish manager Jurgen Klopp, who once likened his own preferred style of soccer to "heavy metal". Should be a fun gig.

Nintendo Switch games don't have to support both TV and handheld modes

5 people viewing this

| By Faythung - 13 hours ago

Quote:

Nintendo's marketing around the Switch has largely focused on the fact that games can be played while the system is connected to a TV or in handheld mode. But this isn't necessarily true of every game, we've now learned.

As seen in the photo below, the Switch's touchscreen becomes inaccessible when it's placed into the dock that connects the system to an external display. A Switch version of mobile rhythm game Voez is only playable with the touchscreen--and, as such, it can't be played on your TV.


Quote:

This is revealed on the game's official visit this link website (as discovered by visit this link NeoGAF user LordKano). In an FAQ about Voez, publisher Fly High Works explains that "[b]utton operation is not available" and "[t]his software can not play in TV mode."

When the Switch was first revealed last year, Nintendo didn't confirm whether or not it was equipped with a touchscreen. After we learned that it does have one, it never addressed the possibility of games that require it--and, thus, handheld mode. It's still unclear if developers will also be permitted to create games that are only playable in TV mode.

For the time being, there may not be any handheld-only Switch games outside of Japan. Voez is scheduled for launch there on the same day as the system, but there's no word about an international release for it.

AMD Ryzen Dominates Intels Kaby Lake & Skylake In Performance/Price Charts

4 people viewing this

AMD Ryzen’s Performance/$ Stands Uncontested

Following an accumulation of performance benchmarks and pricing revelations, 3DCenter has published a couple of eye-opening performance/$ charts that showcase how much of a market disruptive launch this has been. The Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X, 1700 and 1600X dominated the charts, offering unprecedented performance per dollar that stands uncontested at every price point.





We’re already seeing retailers like Microcenter starting to take matters into their own hands to thin their stagnating stocks of Intel chips. Microcenter has already started offering unusually generous price-cuts on Intel Broadwell-E, Kaby Lake and Skylake processors. Intel is not expected to take any direct action before the mist clears and Ryzen reviews go live on March 2nd. But if the leaked benchmarks, which are many, are of any indication then Intel’s in for a rough 2017. The giant chip maker may have to cut prices for the first time in more than 6 years and swallow a significant slash to its profit margins

Elite: Dangerous predicted the discovery of the Trappist-1 system

4 people viewing this

| By Faythung - 1 day ago



Quote:

This week, astronomers announced the discovery of the Trappist 1 system, 39.5 light years away, which contains seven rocky worlds orbiting their star within a zone believed to support liquid water, therefore good candidates for life. It turns out that a while ago, the wide-open spacefaring adventure Elite: Dangerous, through its algorithm, created a system that closely matches the real one, and not only that, put it in the same location relative to our Solar System.

Frontier Developments made this discovery itself when it went looking to recreate the Trappist-1 system in the game, as it's done in the past for other discoveries (notably the exploration of Pluto and its satellite in 2015). David Braben, the game's director, explained the game's Stellar Forge engine and how it generates stellar systems, and that it cooked up a brown dwarf star "in very nearly the same place — 39 light years away" that also has seven terrestrial worlds around it.

Stellar Forge uses an available-mass formula to create its worlds and systems, meaning it doesn't just cook up planets and stars out of nowhere. Who's to say if this is a pure coincidence or if Elite: Dangerous' planetary-generation logic is actually on to something. But Braben sure seemed delighted visit this link in a note to the community about it.

As it turns out, all Frontier Developments will need to do is to make some tweaks to the existing system, currently called Core Sys Sector XU-P A5-0. It will be renamed Trappist-1. The system will be added in Elite Dangerous' next beta, and the 2.3 update when that goes live to all players.

Image inside $10,000 Worth Of SNES Games Found By U.S. Postal Service And Returned

3 people viewing this

| By Avon_Barksdale - 1 day ago








If you plan on shipping an expensive load of Super Nintendo Entertainment System games, you might want to consider a service other than the United States Postal Service. An amateur video game archivist/historian failed to receive a shipment of 100 SNES games that were worth $10,000, and and the Postal Service’s explanation was baffling. The games were recovered by the Postal Service only after a substantial delay and an internal investigation.

The historian, who goes by Byuu, was working with a collector in Frankfurt to archive a trove of European PAL SNES games into ROM files. The package of 100 cartridges did make its way over from Germany, but once it arrived in the U.S., things became hazy.

Byuu has been in contact with USPS, and after some back-and-forth, finally received a bit of evidence as to what could have happened. The USPS sent Byuu a torn piece of the original package, shipping label intact, with an apology letter.

Quote:

"They shipped me the mother fu*king box label and nothing else, claiming the machine ate it. BULLsh*t. If the label came off, it'd belong to the box right next to it without a label.

The USPS employees in Jersey City just stole a $10,000 package of games. This is felony theft.

Please spread this as far and wide as you can. I'll be contacting all the press I can as well.

I'm also looking for a good lawyer.

I've set up a Patreon page. If anyone is able to help me with replacing this donor's games, I would be very grateful. I also have a Paypal account if you'd prefer, and you can PM me for that. Thank you!

visit this link https://www.patreon.com/byuu

Just received a call from USPS consumer affairs, who found the Reddit thread. They have opened an internal investigation to try and locate the package. I will keep you all informed how it goes.

If the package ultimately arrives, I will be refunding all donations."
USPS claims in the letter that the package was damaged via “normal machine processing” at its facility. But Byuu contests this.

Quote:

“Basically, the letter claims that the USPS’s machine ate my package and tore off the label, which they sent back in an envelope without the package or the games” said Byuu in a statement to Destructoid.

“Seeing this, last night I rather angrily posted about this and presumed it to be blatant theft. While I do still have a very bad feeling, the truth is I can’t know for certain what actually happened. But the circumstances are intensely suspicious. The top and bottom of the label is cut cleanly, which doesn’t seem likely for a package being ripped open by a machine.”
Luckily, USPS opened up an internal investigation to try and figure out what happened. As for the collector in Frankfurt, Byuu has set up a Patreon to raise money in an attempt to rebuild the collection.

Byuu later updated his website with good news. USPS found the lot of missing SNES games and has returned it to Byuu. It seems that media attention pushed USPS to investigate the lost shipment.

Quote:

“I mean that literally: he [USPS Representative] told me straight up the reason he was contacting me was because of the news articles he had encountered on this case,” said Byuu on his website.
Byuu started a fundraising campaign to pay back the original owner for the games that were lost. But now that everything has been found, Byuu will be providing refunds to everyone who donated.

Byuu also apologized for assuming that the packages had been stolen by USPS, but pointed out that changes still need to be made.

Quote:

“There is a very real issue in that their machines are ripping the labels right off of packages. There’s a very real concern in that it’s damn near impossible to get help when something goes wrong unless you manage to attract a lot of media attention,”
said Byuu.

Article inside 'Help me up, I must win!' Dude tells police after collapsing and spitting blood gaming

3 people viewing this

| By mr_underground - 1 day ago



On Wednesday afternoon, police in Lu'an city, Anhui province received an emergency call about a man inside a local internet bar who had collapsed to the ground and started spitting out blood.

Officers immediately rushed to the scene to find the man sprawled out on the floor, coughing up blood in a delirious state. Upon investigation, they discovered that he had been online for 9 hours straight.

When the ambulance arrived, the guy seemed to finally snap back to reality, remembering what was most important. "Quick help me back up, We're about to win!" he told the officers

Instead the police closed the game and sent him to the hospital where he received treatment and was released in good condition.

While spitting blood is pretty extreme, this guy is nowhere near as hardcore as one Hangzhou gamer who was found lying unconscious behind a shrub near a railway track with his feet bleeding and infected following a 6-day gaming marathon.

Article inside GameStop Changes Controversial Circle of Life Program

4 people viewing this

| By batmanwithprep - 3 days ago


GameStop’s controversial Circle of Life program is changing next week, according to several store managers. Though the retail chain will continue to use and monitor Circle of Life scores, GameStop plans to enact several changes that will make the program more accommodating to employees.

The “Circle of Life” score, visit this link as Kotaku has reported, is a metric that GameStop uses to measure the performance of their employees. The Circle of Life refers to a driving GameStop philosophy: that customers should buy games, trade them into GameStop, and use the proceeds to buy more pre-owned games (which they then trade in to GameStop). Although the concept has been around for years, GameStop recently started keeping close track of Circle of Life scores for both stores and employees, and some GameStop staff said having low scores would cost them their jobs.

Starting next week, according to managers who spoke with Kotaku tonight, GameStop will no longer monitor individual employees’ Circle of Life scores. Each GameStop store will now simply have a single COL number, for their entire store, which will help reduce pressure on individual employees to hit their quotas.

GameStop is also changing the way they calculate Circle of Life scores, managers say. Until now, a COL score had been based on four metrics: 1) pre-owned sales, 2) trade-ins, 3) pre-orders, and 4) rewards cards. Now, GameStop is adding a fifth metric: new sales, which will track each store’s sales numbers against their goals. This will—at least in theory—prevent employees from being punished for selling new games, as they had been in the past.

The changes are not official yet, but GameStop district managers informed some stores via conference call on Friday afternoon that they will be rolling out the new program on Sunday and Monday. From what we hear, the move was decided at a district leader meeting in Houston, Texas this week. However, news is trickling out slowly, and not every store is aware of the change yet.

This news comes several weeks after a series of Kotaku articles reporting on how the Circle of Life program visit this link punished salespeople for selling new games by making those sales count against their other quotas. Dozens of current and former GameStop employees reached out to Kotaku to express their displeasure with the program, which had ramped up last fall and was even leading some employees to visit this link lie to customers about what was in stock.

GameStop employees say they’re cautiously excited about the news. “Wins for everyone all around,” said one employee in an e-mail. “Should eliminate a lot of the sleaze and take a lot of pressure off everyone from at least the [District Leader] level down. At least in theory.”

GameStop managers expect the official announcement to come next week.

Image inside NieR introduces controversial new PS4 feature - the ability to buy Trophies

4 people viewing this

| By Jae_Hood_354 - 3 days ago



Trophies are usually earned by completing certain objectives in games and there’s a huge community of competitive folk that love to get their hands on that elusive Platinum Trophy, which you get for completing all Trophy objectives in each game.

This is the first time in any PlayStation game that a developer has added the option to buy Trophies. According to Reddit user youkatei, who is currently playing the Japanese version of the game, you can only buy Trophies on your third playthrough, and it’s only with in-game money, not real money.

We kind of like the idea, though you may want to unlock this particular Trophy yourself. The amount of times we’ve grinded our way through a game just to get a Platinum, and frankly wasted our time repeating tasks over and over again, is shocking. The ability to just buy some Trophies to complete the collection is certainly appealing, though now that Square has set the ball rolling with this idea, how long will it be before we can buy Trophies with real cash?

Nier Automata launches on PS4 on March 7 in North America and March 10 in Europe.

Note: The ability to buy Trophies has not officially been confirmed by Square Enix.

Q: How do you get this app?

A: (Update: making this easier to do)Since it's in Beta, this app will be hidden from the store however there's a way.
1.On your Internet Browser via the Edge app on Xbox One or on your W10 PC, head to(or google) our Instagram page.
2. Click on the link in our bio
Note: Clicking the link on Xbox will automatically take you to the marketplace with the app ready to download. Doing this on PC will take you to the Microsoft store page. When you hit download the app should appear on the ready to install section on your Xbox.
