geosoco,

I read that to mean it's a digital download only and not a physical copy in stores, but didn't put much thought into it.

El Paso, Elsewhere review - hectic monster blasting with killer style (www.eurogamer.net)

El Paso, Elsewhere is beautifully simple. It's a third-person action game in which you fire guns and dive through windows, triggering bullet-time as you whittle down ranks of converging foes. Its levels are labyrinthine, its hunger for carnage is nearly endless. It's a thrilling challenge at the standard difficulty and...

DOOM creator keen on "ethical" uses for AI, but worried about AAA-style "homogenisation" (www.rockpapershotgun.com)

The conversation/free-for-all around the role of automated "AI"-based game development rolls on with a few thoughts from Tom Hall, co-founder of id Software and one of the creators of the original DOOM, who says he's (Commander) keen on the prospect of "ethical" uses for such tools in gamedev, but worries that reliance on them...

geosoco,

arguably no?

Though Getty did introduce their new AI today that was only trained on images they own the copyright to. Arguably, still not ethical, but at least it's things they own the data for.

geosoco,

I didn't dig too much into it, but my guess would be no.

Even if you could verify, it's still an ethical grey area as it's taking works they paid photographers to generate new works potentially without crediting the original photographers? Their own website tells people they have to credit the original photographer, and I'd be surprised if the AI lists all the works it used to create it.

Cyberpunk 2077's Ukrainian localisation takes the piss out of Russia's war (www.rockpapershotgun.com)

Reworked skill trees and new minigames aside, Cyberpunk 2077's 2.0 update includes a Ukrainian localisation of the game's million-plus-word script. It turns out the Ukrainian version is awash with references to Russia's on-going invasion of Ukraine, all of it seemingly in support of the latter. The news comes via Zone of Games,...

geosoco,

Great list - these are all worth checking out. Some of these games I spent way too much time playing.

I think Ultima 7 is probably one of the best RPGs of the 90s. Ultima 6 might have been the first to 'clutter your entire world with junk' game, but was both beautiful and massive for its time (though 7 did everything better).

It's hard to go wrong with most of the classic Sierra games, though the text entry ones are in a special difficulty level of their own. King's Quest series. Conquests of Camelot was enjoyable. Colonel's bequest. Space quest series.

The Kyrandia games were enjoyable but I played them not too long ago.

I remember enjoy star trek 25th anniversary.

AR horror Scrylight will "blur the boundaries of what’s real and what isn't" (www.eurogamer.net)

Upcoming augmented reality horror, Scrylight, will be a "fully immersive, 360 degree ghost hunting experience" that will not just turn your own home into a haunted house, but also interact with your real-life smart lights and doorbells, too....

geosoco,

Just a guess, but I would suspect it's because it's one of the few game genre's that has a nationality tied to it and it probably feels like a box they can't escape -- just because of where they're from.

To them, it's just their own spin on an RPG. No matter how much they change to make it appeal to a broader audience, they're always going to be a JRPG, which feels very limiting. It's always going to be "it's an amazing RPG if you like JRPGs", which to someone making the game probably makes you feel less than. No other country has that.

It's similar to splitting k-pop or even j-pop out. TO people making the music, they probably just want to be considered on a world stage as great pop music. Not just K-pop album of the year.

Even if people here don't mean it negatively, doesn't mean it doesn't feel like a shitty box to people. We rarely apply the same sort of boxes to things from other countries. You don't hear Abba or Robyn are the best S-pop artists of the last 50 years.

Godot Engine hits over 50K euros per month in funding (www.gamingonlinux.com)

One of the big winners of the Unity debacle is the free and open source Godot Engine, which has seen its funding soar to a much more impressive level as Unity basically gave them free advertising. Certainly helps that Godot ended up launching their new funding platform on the same day Unity announced their hated Runtime Fee...

geosoco,

This isn't that strange for a number of open source projects. I don't know Godot's specifics, but lots of folks are willing to toss a few bucks via patreon or other sources. They keep a list of donors who don't mind being named in the source code, and it includes a few companies that make monthly donations. I'm sure they get a number of grants like this one from Epic.

There's a number of mastodon servers where people pay donate monthly to them.

Dragon's Dogma 2 brings back all the joy of Capcom's 2012 cult hit with few real changes (www.rockpapershotgun.com)

Dragon's Dogma was the action-RPG for people who wanted to play alone, but didn't want to feel alone. By far its most charming feature was the Pawn system, whereby you'd create an AI-controlled sidekick and hire two others, shared online by other players, to accompany you on your journey through a fantasy wilderness of...

At a special showcase for members of the press at Bandai Namco Entertainment in Tokyo, Japan, I had a chance to play an early build of Tekken 8. While renowned director Katsuhiro Harada’s latest sequel will launch with 32 characters, only 16 were available during this meeting. The roster included a blend of old and new faces,...

geosoco,

They've run out of scenarios, but the brand must go on.
