This sole fact has made it difficult for me to do frontend work on Windows. I work at Microsoft and I’m on a Mac. It wasn’t until the new Surface hardware line came out a few years ago that I realized: I gotta have one of those. So I got one. A Surface Book 2 running Windows 10 to be exact. I’m drafting this article on it right now. And what of my sweet, sweet Bash prompt? Well, I brought it along with me, of course. In this article, I’m going to take an in-depth look at how new technology in Windows 10 enables you to run a full Linux terminal on Windows. I’ll also show you my amazing Read the full article…

Loot boxes in games are gambling and should be banned for kids, say UK MPs

UK MPs have called for the government to regulate the games industry’s use of loot boxes under current gambling legislation — urging a blanket ban on the sale of loot boxes to players who are children. Kids should instead be able to earn in-game credits to unlock look boxes, MPs have suggested in a recommendation that won’t be music to the games industry’s ears. Loot boxes refer to virtual items in games that can be bought with real-world money and do not reveal their contents in advance. The MPs argue the mechanic should be considered games of chance played for money’s worth and regulated by the UK Gambling Act. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) parliamentary committee makes the recommendations in a report published today following an enquiry into immersive and addictive technologies that saw it take evidence from a number of tech companies including Fortnite maker Read the full article…

Civilization VI is the latest improbable game to get a battle royale mode

PUBG. Fortnite. Battlefield. Call of Duty. Mario. Tetris. Flappy Bird. It’s practically a joke within the gaming world that if a game exists, it’ll eventually get a battle royale version or mode. But the latest entry might take the cake: Civilization VI, the popular turn-based strategy game, via Rock Paper Shotgun. You may be wondering how Civilization, a franchise in which players slowly and meticulously build their global societies up over time scales that span the whole of human history, can combine with the battle royale genre, which sees players frantically trying to eliminate rivals to be the last person standing as a constantly encroaching fog of war shrinks the play area. The answer is through a new mode called “Red Death,”… Read the full article…

World of Warcraft is dominating Twitch because Fortnite streamers are desperate for change

Fortnite fans perusing Twitch for their favorite streamers to watch have been running into an issue for the past couple of weeks: almost all of the biggest names in the community are playing a different game. It’s not a battle royale title or even a competitive multiplayer game; it’s a largely cooperative fantasy RPG that came out 15 years ago. Maybe you’ve heard the name before: World of Warcraft, the Blizzard-produced massively multiplayer online game that was released in its classic, preexpansion form on August 26th but was originally released in November 2004. According to streaming production provider StreamElements, viewership of World of Warcraft on Twitch jumped 83 percent in August alone, thanks largely to WoW Classic and… Read the full article…

Final Fantasy VII Remake’s TGS trailer is full of familiar scenes

We’re inching closer to the long-awaited release of Final Fantasy VII Remake, but it also feels like we’ve seen very little of the game to date. Thankfully, at Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix revealed a new trailer that is full of scenes that will be familiar to longtime fans of the 1997 original. There’s the creepy Don Corneo (who appears to be played by Mark Hamill), hints at Cloud’s infamous cross-dressing scene, a revamped version of the gym mini-game, the tense train sequence, summon monsters, and plenty more. Also, President Shinra is a hologram. It’s a lot packed into less than three minutes, and we even get another glimpse of the more action-oriented combat. FFVII Remake launches on the PS4 on March 3rd, 2020. For more on the game,… Read the full article…

Project Resistance Hands-on: a Deadly Resident Evil Escape Room Challenge

Despite taking place in Raccoon City, you won’t find Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield saving the day in the next Resident Evil game. Even so, there’s no denying that Project Resistance is very much ingrained into their world. Darkened corridors are riddled with zombies, obscure puzzle pieces delay your path to freedom, and all the while a sinister figure is watching your every move – a figure that just happens to be controlled by another player. Before starting my hands-on demo with Project Resistance, Capcom made it clear that this was not so much a full product as it was still an idea – and it’s plain to see where that idea was birthed from: a touch of Dead by Daylight/Friday the 13th’s asymmetrical multiplayer, a dash of an escape room challenge gone horribly wrong, with a bit of Left 4 Dead’s focus on constantly moving between safe rooms – Read the full article…

Resident Evil 4v1 Multiplayer Spinoff ‘Project Resistance’ Revealed, Closed Beta in October

Capcom has officially revealed Project Resistance, a 4v1, asymmetrical PvP game where four players work together to escape the clutches of a player-controlled “Mastermind.” A closed beta for Project Resistance is scheduled for early October. Project Resistance is a new Resident Evil spinoff that takes place on the outskirts of Raccoon City. Similar to games like Friday the 13th and Dead by Daylight, the four “survivor” characters are controlled by players who must work together and escape three levels. All while overcoming the zombies and traps placed by a fifth player who’s playing as the Mastermind. Read the full article…
