    Amazing 'ARMS' Fan Art Suggests Nintendo Has Another Smash-Hit On Their Hands

    May 17th saw a Nintendo Direct focused on ARMS broadcast to the gaming public, and with it the reveal of multiple new game modes, new weapons, and - perhaps most importantly - new characters to fight with. However, following the Direct, something happened that few predicted: the internet became awash with ARMS fan art! One new character, Twintelle, appears to be the target of a large proportion of this art, suggesting gamers are particularly fond of her glamorous design.

    Civilization V Is Awful (Thematically)

    Sid Meier’s Civilization V is the perfect game to relax with at the end of a long day. Unfortunately, the game falls flat in the department of theme. To be clear, I’m not talking about the way that Civ V sets things aesthetically- from my own western viewpoint, the game does a good job portraying the character of the world’s leaders and nations within its own scope; even the game’s music is different based on which civilization you pick. Where Civ V fails thematically is in its own gameplay.

    EA goes from cautious to “bullish” on Nintendo Switch support

    As Nintendo continues to celebrate an incredibly strong launch for its hybrid Switch console, a looming question remains about whether major third-party publishers will lend significant software support to the system. In a recent earnings call, mega-publisher Electronic Arts suggested that strong hardware sales may be convincing the company to give the system a second look.

    Video Game Raised $148 Million From Fans. Now It’s Raising Concerns.

    Mark Kearns, 38, a web designer and gamer from Chicago, stumbled upon a new video game called Star Citizen while online in late 2013. The game, which was in development, promised to revive the spaceflight simulation genre with a sprawling universe for players to explore. Intrigued, Mr. Kearns decided to pledge money to see the game come to fruition. In total, he donated $175, which gained him access to Star Citizen’s alpha version — a playable version of the game in its early stages — plus a virtual ship to use in the game.

    In Alternate History, You Are the Mystery: Thoughts on Herald

    Set in an alternate 19th century, Herald: An Interactive Period Drama is an adventure game that is as much about uncovering the mysteries surrounding the game's characters as it is about discovering who you are. In Herald, you play as Devan Rensburg, a young man from the Protectorate who has taken work as a sailor aboard the titular ship, the HLV Herald. This Protectorate is a colonial superpower made up of multiple European nations that have branched out to conquer the rest of the world; at the start of the game, Devan is rescued from drowning, only to be taken prisoner somewhere in India. His captor, a mysterious Rani, interrogates him...

    Analyst: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is “no ordinary hit”, is a bigger success than sales indicate

And Jefferies equity analyst Atul Goyal believes the game’s success is more than just sales numbers, it shows the Switch as a viable console. In a note to investors, Goyal advised them to buy Nintendo shares, and said about the success of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe:

    The Pokémon Company Celebrates 19-Year Anniversary

    This year may be the year of Kirby according to the last Nintendo Direct, but I have an inkling which franchise will be in the spotlight next year. The Pokémon Company was founded on 23 April 1998, making this week its 19th anniversary. Contrary to popular belief, the Pokémon Company isn’t entirely owned by Nintendo – something that came to light when people realised Nintendo did not make, and made little money directly from insanely popular app Pokémon Go.

    Video Games Are Better Without Stories

    A longstanding dream: Video games will evolve into interactive stories, like the ones that play out fictionally on the Star Trek Holodeck. In this hypothetical future, players could interact with computerized characters as round as those in novels or films, making choices that would influence an ever-evolving plot. It would be like living in a novel, where the player’s actions would have as much of an influence on the story as they might in the real world.

    Xbox chief: we need to create a Netflix of video games

    Something big has happened to the video game industry over the last five years – you may have noticed. All the old rules about consoles – the fact that they enjoyed five-to-eight-year life cycles, the fact that games “just worked” out of the box – they’re all gone. An accelerating consumer electronics sector and the mass penetration of broadband internet have led us into a new era of chaotic innovation and fraught business model evolution. And somewhere in the middle of all this, people are making and playing games. How do those people keep up?

    The Nintendo Switch has become the system people love to love

    I spent a significant amount of time playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on a hammock today. You could have something like that experience before — it’s not like Mario Kart 7 wasn’t a thing that existed on the 3DS — but this isn’t a portable version of Mario Kart that’s struggling to look like the real thing. This is the flagship Mario Kart of 2017, with all the bells, whistles and curse words you would expect from the real thing. And you can play it wherever you want.

    Dead Island 2 is still alive, Deep Silver insists

    Dead Island 2 is still alive, despite no news emerging on the game in over a year. The last time Dead Island owner Deep Silver piped up about the franchise was in March 2016, when the company announced UK studio Sumo Digital was making the zombie-killing sequel. That announcement followed a period of development hell for Dead Island 2, which was once in the works at Spec Ops: The Line maker Yager before Deep Silver parted ways with the studio in the summer of 2015.

    An Interactive Political Thriller – Interview with the Developer of The Occupation

    You may have heard of White Paper Games; they're a small England-based game studio responsible for the adventure Ether One, which was a gorgeous first person game about restoring the memories of a dementia patient. In their new game, The Occupation, you play as a journalist and whistleblower in England during the 1980s; in the wake of a terrorist attack, a new law- The Union Act- has been drafted, and it seems as though it will curtail the civil liberties of the population in exchange for a measure of safety. As a journalist, it's your job to report on it- what will be your narrative? That's for you to decide in The Occupation.

    Lost Zelda screenshot reveals NES classic was almost in first-person with a dungeon select screen

    Nintendo might have rewritten the book on open-ended design, but recent discoveries show that this almost wasn’t the game. The Hyrule Encylopedia has uploaded a long-lost screenshot from before the game was released, and the early build shows a much different game. For one, it was a first-person exploration game, more similar to Might and Magic or Etrian Odyssey for today’s audiences. The genre was very popular back then in Japan, and Nintendo very well might have been trying to capitalize on that popularity.

    Playing for Real – A Tale of Two Calamities

    A few months ago, I wrote about how the apocalypse can be used in storytelling as a powerful means of conveying the “true” nature of a world by stripping away distractions—how, despite being a story about the end of the world, the destruction is ultimately not the focus, but a lens through which the truth may be glimpsed more clearly. This month I’ll apply the same model to two substantively similar apocalyptic tales, examining how they use the details of their respective apocalypses to illuminate important elements of the worlds they’re set in. Interestingly, while both stories have radically different setting and tone, they address many of

In case you're new to the notion of a cloud gaming service, what you should know is that it allows you to stream games to your computer that are being run on a server elsewhere- in this case, a gaming PC. If you don't have a computer with enough RAM or a good enough GPU to run the latest games, you can use LiquidSky instead- assuming, of course, that your Internet connection is reliable.

    This is the Police (Xbox One) Review

    If you have ever found yourself wishing that you could manage a corrupt police station set in a fiction 1980’s city where racism, sexism and the mafia rule, well, This is the Police is very likely the game for you. I want to point out that many of the things in that previous paragraph are not seen as positives. In This is the Police, they just exist. They are a part of the world in which a relatively straight edge cop needs to re-evaluate his morality as the end of his career unexpectedly approaches.
