Suddenly Sony does an AR headset!
Promotion video obviously. It will probaly be a lot of years before any real consumer breakthrough will occur. But an interesting development nonetheless.

**UPDATE** that got removed quickly! :rolleyes :D

Luckily there is another link

Almost the same. But more of a focus on the Ghostbusters experience in Ginza Sony Park.

Havne't played it yet. A bit curious!

Invisigun Reloaded

The ultimate stealth battle adventure where everyone’s invisible! Risk versus reward guides your journey through the full-length single player campaign and local/online multiplayer. Vigilance is key as environmental tells such as footprints and other disturbances will point out careless cadets.
All Reviews:
Very Positive (220)

I'm totally into couch coop/pvp games. Personally not a fan of the Overcooked games. So for me Moving Out is set to modest interest. But not counting it out.

Moving Out - Announcement Trailer | PS4




Ohhhh.. Fallen Order actually sounds pretty damn cool! :cool:
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order - The Final Hands-On Impressions



Old trailer by now. But still VERY much shareworhty. Hope development is going smoothly

Well ok ok... this is certainly special! Somebody on the poggies mentioned a creator named Robert Yang was banned on Twitch. I decided to investigate!
And found something truly 'unique'. Radiator 2: Anniversary Edition!
Perhaps not for everybody. But I got a bit of a laugh from the video.
I guess I'll have to give it a play at some point. All free on Steam and Itch.
Actually not expecting much.. but just plain old curious. (Noooo not in that way) ;)

Possibly not very work safe!





And while we are at it! :D
A game recommendation in the form of Genital Jousting.
My recommendation is actually on the single player game which I found surprisingly good all taken into account. A bit less of the multiplayer modes which I didn't find incredibly entertaining beyond the initial giggles. It's ok!

Pulp adventure 'The Drifter' has a certain charm and appeal.
Haven't really been into the classical point and click adventures since olden times (Sierra Online, Lucas Arts). Playing adventure games can very easily be a long, slow, >>tedious<<, frustrating experience. I guess my time was more abundant earlier in life to go through those experiences.

But let's see where this goes.

The Drifter - Reveal





And speaking of point and click adventures. I have touched a few though. (Also more than these I think)
The Silent Age (from 2012 already) by our very own @Thomas Ryder and crew. Was really good! Out on mobile, Steam and what not.



Cyberpunk adventure, Gemini Rue was pretty nice!



Also tried giving Tim Shafters Broken Age a go... buuuut... :rolleyes I just hate everything about it. Characters, gameplay, story, artstyle..
So I'm not even going to link it up. ;)

Not a lot of people in games knows Notch (Not the Minecraft guy). Also not really a tool targeted at game-development per se. So that figures. :)

But it does realtime graphics extremely well. Also recently updated with real time path tracing.

It looks like a BADASS tool if you know what you are doing in tech art (as with all tools). It might find some use in some cases in games?!

The Outer Worlds is getting good reviews all over the place


The Outer Worlds on MetaCritic
Image



Command & Conquer getting remastered. Cute! :)


Young Souls - Announcement Trailer


Xenosis: Alien Infection

You are a deep space salvage hunter who discovers the remains of the Starship Carpathian, thought to have been destroyed 50 years ago. You’ve hit the jackpot. The data core housed in the ship’s AI will be worth a lifetime of credits on the Black Market, so you dock with the ship to retrieve it.


Skeleton Crew

Launch your enemies like Gothic pinballs in Skeleton Crew, the physics-based platform brawler. A band of misfit heroes is all that stands between the last survivors of humanity and the legions of Chaos that have assembled to destroy them.


Gladiabots
Sounds pretty nerdy! Might be fun! :)

AI COMBAT ARENA - Assemble your robot squad, construct their AI and send them in the battle arena to see your strategy play out. Iterate, improve and repeat until you outsmart all your opponents and friends online.
