Today, Atari posted up on their Facebook a very cryptic message: The GIF is literally just a loop of a rollercoaster ride. Combine that with the hashtag of RCT4M and one can only speculate (and hope) that they’re talking about RollerCoaster Tycoon 4. But what does that M stand for? Could it be a mobile game this time around? Could they be making the worst thing ever? Can you tell I’m a huge fan and would really rather have a [...]
Jonathan Morin, answering a fan’s question, has revealed on his Twitter the Watch Dogs minimum PC requirements. Here’s what he had to say: Watch Dogs will be available for PC as well as consoles on May 27th.
A NeoGAF member has posted that Oculus VR has a new Chief Architect with Atman Binstock from Valve joining in. Atman was working as a lead designer in Valve’s VR project. He helped create the “VR Room” that was demoed at Steam Dev Days and as that garnered such excitement, there’s no wonder in why Oculus would want him behind the Oculus Rift. Atman will be spearheading the new Oculus R&D team in Seattle. Here’s looking forward to the future of [...]
The Star Trek Online community is going to grow as a new Mac client is now available. If you click that link, your Mac OS will automatically be detected and you’ll be on your way to trekking the stars. Mac players will be on the Holodeck server, which allows them to play alongside PC users. Great, they can settle all the fighting in space and just be best friends! Is that not how Star Trek Online works? Here are the [...]
Welcome back to another episode of Twinfinite Discusses. We took a week off so we could finally change our clothes. I hope you’re happy. Newcomer Austin joins the fray this week as we discuss whether graphics are the cornerstone of the console war right now, which next-gen controller is best, and whose faces would be on a Mt. Rushmore for gaming. Thanks for all the questions sent in and see you next Tuesday for another Twinfinite Discusses!
Wargaming has announced that a limited-time campaign has been added to World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition. From March 18th to March 24th, players will be working together to reach cumulative tank kill counts. Each time a goal is reached, a new map is unlocked. At 10 million tanks, Lakeville is unlocked. El Hallufun at 25 million, and Prokhorovka at 40 million. I love this idea as it really gives a sense of togetherness within a game’s online community. You’re [...]
Finally, Unity Games and Mimimi Productions have announced that The Last Tinker: City of Colors is making its console and Steam debut in Summer 2014. After seeing screens and reading Chaz’ preview for it, I’m crazy excited for it. Looks a lot like a return to that era of 3D platforming during the PS2 and Xbox days. Not to mention that the devs promise it dives into present day issues of culture and racism. A beautiful game with something to [...]
ORIGIN PC always has sleek designs for their PCs, and it’s no different with this new micro-tower for their CHRONOS line of desktops. With a slogan of “small, slim, and relentlessly powerful” it’s probably the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Like a little dog with a loud bark. Here are the features for this tower: Small and Slim Micro-Tower Design with 4″(w) x 15″(h) x 13.75″(d) Horizontal or Vertical Orientations Up to a Mini ITX ASUS MAXIMUS VI Impact Motherboard [...]
Unity Games and N-Fusion (Deus Ex: The Fall, Air Mail) have a space combat game heading to PC and tablets. Space Noir is touted as having “Blade Runner visuals with a gritty storyline and high-speed space combat.” You’ll be playing as Hal Markham the bounty hunter as he travels through space doing what bounty hunters do: kicking ass and talking to his only friend, the ship’s AI Rhonda. Five worlds and over 35 missions await those that are interested in this narrative [...]
Halfbrick (Fruit Ninja, Jetpack Joyride) is know for putting out quality iOS titles. So although Bears vs. Art sounds incredibly quirky, it’ll be the team’s first puzzle game and I’m sure it’ll be a great bathroom/commute/place you don’t want to be time waster. Equipped with 125 levels, players will be guiding a bear through a gallery and destroying the art in its path. The goal is to ruin the art as quickly as possible while also avoiding lasers, spikes, art snobs, [...]
