  • Rune: Ragnarok Is A New Upcoming Open World RPG

    rune ragnarok new open world gameHuman Head, the same development team as Prey and Prey 2, is now working on a brand new open world RPG game called Rune: Ragnarok.

    Surprisingly, Rune: Ragnarok isn't the first Rune game in the franchise. In fact, Human Head created a game called Rune that released way back in 2000.

    It looks like Rune: Ragnarok will be the game to revitalize that universe in an exciting new way. So far, we know very little about Rune: Ragnarok other than that the development team is working on it, and it'll be released some point in the future.

    No details on release windows or gameplay reveal trailers have yet been mentioned.

    We do have a single non-gameplay reveal trailer though. In the reveal trailer the narrator is heard saying the following:

    "From birth, the children of the North hear tales of the end of the world. A battle so great the gods fall and the Nine Worlds are consumed by frost and fire. But these tales are false. The gods did not perish. For seven years our worlds have been devoured by death and destruction. Now, mankind must rise and do what the gods could not. Ragnarok must end."

    We don't have any information about which platforms the new Ragnarok game will be launched on, but Human Head does mention on their website that they work on PC, consoles, VR, and mobile devices. Hopefully, Rune Ragnarok will get a launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We may even see some VR-related gameplay if we're lucky.

  • Knack 2 Gets Free PS4 Demo In Europe

    knack 2 demo europeA new demo has been released for the upcoming PS4 exclusive, Knack 2. The new demo is currently only available in Europe and Australia. If you're in either of these regions you can jump in and download the demo for free right now.

    So far, the demo weighs in at just 2.6GB. If you download it from the store today, you'll have roughly one week to play before Knack 2 is launched worldwide. Unfortunately, there's no evidence that the Knack 2 demo will come to any other regions, including North America.

    Knack 2 was originally revealed via a leak quite some time ago, but it wasn't until Sony's PSX event last year that the game was officially revealed by Sony. Now, Knack 2 is set to launch on September 5 in North America. Knack 2 will also launch in Europe and Australia a day later, on September 6.

    The original Knack didn't get as much critical appeal as the developers had originally hoped. However, game designer Mark Cerny feels like the sequel touches on a lot of the areas that the original game got wrong.

    When asked about the sequel, Mark Cerny mentioned that "There's a lot unexplored there, I think anybody who played the [original] game would tell you that."

    Are you interested in the Knack sequel? If the previews are anything to go by, it looks as if Knack 2 will be a considerable improvement over the first Knack game.

  • No Man's Sky Getting an Update - Worth Revisiting?

    no man's sky atlas rising updateSurprise, surprise - No Man's Sky is getting a big update and it may even make the game worth a revisit.

    When No Man's Sky first launched, it was eaten into by the gaming community because of the developer behind the game, Hello Games, vastly under delivered. They broke many promises about the content of the game.

    For example, Hello Games mentioned that No Man's Sky would have multiplayer, and the game would have a universe where players could leave their mark. Both of these features were quickly debunked as soon as No Man's Sky launched.

    In the new update, No Man's Sky will be getting some kind of story that serves to piece together the game's existing content and provide players with more of a reason to explore.

    The new update is called Atlas Rises, and it is available to all No Man's Sky players for free. The patch notes for Atlas Rises haven't yet been revealed, but the most notable features include a brand new story and a quick travel feature that will allow players to travel between worlds quickly.

    When the patch notes are released for Atlas Rises, we'll share more on this brand new update. Do you think a brand new story could be enough to get players to return to No Man's Sky?

    Let us know your thoughts on No Man's Sky and Hello Games by leaving a comment below. We'd love to hear your opinions.

  • Southeast Asia Major Details for Street Fighter V

    southest asia major 2017 sfvThe Southeast Asia scene for fighting games is growing even stronger. We now have more details about the Southeast Major for Street Fighter V.

    The Southeast Asia Major is considered to be the largest event in the region, and it gained a lot of attention last year. We're expecting to see the Southeast 2017 Major be even bigger

    This year, the Southeast Asia Major will take place at GameStart 2017 in Suntec City, Singapore, on October 14. The event will end on October 15.

    It won't just be Street Fighter at the SE major this year. Players from three different games will be making their way to the event. Street Fighter V is, of course, the biggest game to make a return this year with the Capcom Pro Tour 2017. We'll also see an event for the Tekken World Tour Asia Pacific Regional Championships and the Windjammers Asia Championships.

    Street Fighter V players will be fighting for a chance at a $30,000 prize pool. The Tekken 7 tournament will have a total of $15,000 up for grabs, and the Windjammers tournament has $6,500 on the line.

    Guilty Gear XRD REV 2 and BlazBlue Central Fiction will also be getting their own, smaller events.

    Prizes for each event will be split between players, with the grand final winner receiving the majority of the prize pool money.

    Are you interested in the Southeast Major? Will you just be watching Street Fighter V or will you be keeping an eye on Tekken 7 or other games as well?

  • eSports May Join Paris 2024 Olympics

    FILE PHOTO - The logo of the Paris candidacy for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games is seen on the Montparnasse tower in PariseSports is growing at an incredible rate. It's a new industry that showcases the competitive potential of gamers across the world.

    While it hasn't traditionally been seen as a sport, many professional sports players and sports bodies are starting to respect eSports as a sport that takes dedication, practice, and sportsmanship, just like any physical sport.

    The next milestone for eSports is for the Olympics to accept it as a sport. The next Olympics event will happen in Paris in 2024. Paris has mentioned that they believe eSports does deserve a spot on the Olympic stage.

    Their argument is that the youth are very interested in eSports as a whole, and it should be considered a sport when taking the competitive environment of eSports into account.

    The difficulty with an eSports Olympic event is that in the current eSports space, competitive players and teams are very stretched between events as it is. Players and teams are often forced to pick between events and the deciding factor is usually down to prize money.

    It's unlikely that the Olympic eSports event will have prize money on the line, so getting the best of the best players to attend will be difficult. Another issue is that eSports spans across dozens of different games. Deciding a single game to be showcased at the Olympics would be incredibly difficult. Alternatively, supporting too many games may be seen as a bad choice, which would give less weight to the medals earned from traditional sports.

  • Xbox One Support for Original Xbox Games Still Coming

    xbox one original xbox supportWhile it may have been some time since Xbox originally announced backward compatibility for original Xbox games, it's been reiterated recently that the feature is still being worked on.

    Phil Spencer was the person to step up and speak about the progress that's currently being made for the backward compatibility feature.

    When asked about whether Xbox would make any announcements about original Xbox compatibility, Phil Spencer responded by saying "I hope to bring more on Original Xbox backward compatibility this year, yes."

    By this comment, it sounds like the feature is still in the works and it may be some time before it's finalized. There may be some blocks that could potentially slow down the project, but if we're fortunate, we may get more finalized details about an expected release date for the feature before the end of the year.

    It's already been previously confirmed that original Xbox games will run better and look nicer on the Xbox One. While games won't have texture overhauls, their frame rates will be improved thanks to the increased performance of the Xbox One over the original Xbox.

    There will be a library of games available for original Xbox compatibility, starting with Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy. The library of compatible original Xbox games won't be as extensive as the Xbox 360 compatible library, but it'll without a doubt feature some of the most popular original Xbox titles.

  • MotoGP eSports Championship Underway

    motogp esports championshipWhile MotoGP eSports hasn't really been a thing before, it is now - a brand new eSports championship for MotoGP has started and it'll give players a chance to win a brand new car.

    The new MotoGP eSports championship started on July 27th. The event will start with six challenges.

    The first challenge will be a time trial on the Circuito de Jerez track. Players must play as Marc Marquez on the HRC Honda. If players beat the qualifying time, they'll be taken to the next challenge.

    In total, there are 5 more challenges like the first one. By the end of it all, players will be taken to the MotoGP Challenge - a chance for all players that have made it through the challenges so far to race against others.

    The players with the quickest cumulative time in the MotoGP Challenge will have a chance to qualify for the Grand Finals.

  • EVO 2017 Super Smash Winners Revealed

    EVO 2017 Super Smash WinnersEVO 2017 has now slowly shifted to a halt, and the winners for both Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Bros. Melee have now been revealed.

    If you don't want spoilers, you can check out recaps on the EVO 2017 Twitch channel before reading our EVO 2017 finals overview below.

    We'll first start with the least surprising turnout of the event. In the Super Bros. Melee tournament at EVO 2017, Armada and Mang0 ended up facing up against each other in the grand finale.

    Armada managed to pull out an almost clean 3-1 victory over Mang0 to take the grand final win after coming from the winner's bracket. This is now the third year in a row that Armada has made it to the EVO 2017 grand finals.

    In 2016, Armada came second after losing in the grand finals. Armada also took the 2015 EVO Smash Bros. Melee win.

    The results for the EVO 2017 Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament were a little more interesting.

    As expected, ZeRo made his way to the grand finals after staying at the top of the winner's bracket. However, out of nowhere, Salem, pushed out a very close victory in the grand finals.

    Salem had a tough time making his way through to the grand finals. With a number of close wins behind him, Salem ended up beating ZeRo 3-2 in both grand final best of five matches. It was one of the most exciting Smash Bros. games to watch this year.

    With The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus joining the Xbox One X launch party, the list of games with Xbox One X and 4K support is starting to grow.

    Other games recently announced for Xbox One X include the unreleased Crackdown 3, Assassin's Creed: Origins, Forza Horizon 7, and Sea of Thieves.

    The Xbox One X will launch on November 7, later this year. The new Xbox enhanced 4K console will cost USD $499.

    If you already own a game that will be getting an upgrade to support 4K and HDR on the Xbox One X, you'll simply need to boot up the game on the Xbox One X console and you'll get a prompt to download the necessary files.
