  2. There's been an unexpected, unmentioned addition to Nintendo Switch with its 4.0.0 update - GameCube controllers (when using the Wii U's USB adapters) now work with the system. Twitter user Master Mewking was among the first to discover the new controller support. It's not foolproof as yet, with many users reporting that it takes multiple attempts to pair a pad - perhaps explaining why Nintendo hasn't publicised the change. The process is, on paper, fairly simple: Make sure your Switch is set to accept wired controllers, plug the adapter in, plug the controller in, choose to pair controllers, then press L and R. Up to four GameCube controllers can be used simultaneously. Continue reading… View the full article

  8. According to analysts at The NPD Group, September's best selling game was Destiny 2, followed by NBA2K18. In only one month of sales, Destiny 2 is now the "best-selling game of 2017 year to date." NBA 2K18 is the best-selling sports game. Interestingly, the top selling hardware unit for September wasn't the Nintendo Switch, but rather the Super NES Classic. Switch was the top selling console for September 2017, beating out PS4 and Xbox One, but Sony led the pack in overall consumer spending tied to the PS4 platform. Nintendo issued a statement last week ahead of the public release of NPD's sales data championing its hybrid console. Two-thirds of all hardware sales in September belonged to Nintendo.

  10. Developer Infinite Fall's quirky adventure game Night in the Woods is coming to mobile. Announced on Twitter, the mobile version of the game will be released sometime in 2018. Further details, like a specific release date and supported mobile platforms, will be shared in the future. Night in the Woods puts players in the role of 20-year-old Mae Borowski, who has left college and returned to her home in Possum Springs. While plenty about the town is still familiar for Mae, things have changed during her time away, and something is out in the town's woods. The game was released earlier this year for PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and Linux. In IGN's Night in the Woods review to find out why we found its "exploration of young adulthood manages to be charming, funny, and devastatingly sad all at once."

  11. With barely a month left before Star Wars Battlefront 2’s release, EA just dropped a brand new trailer dedicated to the single player campaign -- it doesn’t reveal a whole lot, but that didn’t stop us from picking it apart, frame by frame. Let’s take a look! CHECK OUT THE FULL TRAILER BELOW. :06 -- This little droid is one of the specially modified ID10 seeker droids used by members of Inferno Squad for a variety of tasks -- in game, this will probably include hacking terminals and marking enemies. :08 -- These droids are specially made for use by Inferno Squad. In the book they use them to hack and hide data while undercover. You’ll take direct control of it in the prologue mission, then use it to do tasks as Iden once they regroup. It can “slice” doors and boxes to open them, stun enemies, and release a pulse scan to mark enemies in a large area. Continue reading… View the full article
  12. After various reports, Warner Bros. has confirmed that content support for LEGO Dimensions will end a year earlier than originally intended. In a statement to IGN, WB confirmed that developer TT Games "will not be producing new expansion packs for the game beyond what is now available." WB and TT will continue to support the game's severs, however, as well as customer support for existing LEGO Dimensions content packs. Their joint statement reads: "Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group would like to thank fans for their ongoing support of LEGO Dimensions. After careful consideration, we will not be producing new expansion packs for the game beyond what is now available. We will continue to provide ongoing server and customer support for all LEGO Dimensions packs. Existing packs will continue to work interchangeably and will remain available for purchase."

  13. From a technical standpoint, the preview build of Destiny 2 that I played on PC feels like a game that was expressly made for the platform. However, there are notable exceptions to this rule like the inclusion of aim assist and the omission of crucial text chat functionality. But where performance, controls, and the options menu are concerned, I have nothing but positive things to say. I played the preview build on a PC with the following specs: Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti GPU, Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2Ghz CPU, 16GB RAM, 500GB SSD. At max settings, 4k with Vsync enabled, my frame rate never dropped below 60 FPS, I also got frame rates as high as 170 in orbit with Vsync disabled. Destiny 2’s textures and effects translate well into 4k, with some set-pieces like the intricate architecture of the Pyramidion left my jaw agape. Bungie is even supporting frequently neglected configurations like Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire. You can find the official minimum recommended system requirements here.

  14. Halo developer 343 Industries is updating Halo: The Master Chief Collection to resolve lingering issues with the game's matchmaking system and improve game performance on Xbox One and Xbox One X. In a post on Halo Waypoint, franchise development director Frank O'Connor discussed the development history of The Master Chief Collection (MCC), highlighting areas where the developer made mistakes and detailing their plans to make it right. The MCC has had matchmaking issues since it launched in November of 2014, and 343 acknowledges those issues were due in large part to the way the collection was developed. "It may sound simplistic, but MCC was essentially six pretty different game engines strapped together and interlinked with highly complex and highly delicate new systems," O'Connor explained.

  15. Rockstar has said that its much-criticized decision not to release single-player story DLC for GTA 5 was because the developer didn't feel that content was "possible or necessary". Speaking to Game Informer, Rockstar director of design Imran Sarwar explained that while it may may release story expansions for its future games, GTA 5 was simply too broad and taxing a project for it to receive one. "With GTA V, the single-player game was absolutely massive and very, very complete. It was three games in one. The next-gen versions took a year of everyone’s time to get right, then the online component had a lot of potential, but to come close to realizing that potential also sucked up a lot of resources. And then there are other games – in particular Red Dead Redemption II. Continue reading… View the full article
  16. Back in May this year Grand Theft Auto V crossed 80 million copies shipped. The only games that have officially moved more than that are Wii Sports (which came packed in with four out of every five Wii consoles ever sold whether you liked it or not), Minecraft (which needs no introduction these days but this is a decent summary), and Tetris (a 33-year-old game so ubiquitous people are apparently now finding it baked into the dashboard LCDs of Russian-made vans). 80 million is an astonishing number. It’s hot on the heels of the combined sales total of GTA III, GTA: Vice City, GTA: San Andreas, and 2008’s GTA IV, which seems to sit at just over 80 million. Yep: it takes one-and-a-half generations of GTA games to top the staggering success of GTA V alone, a game that still consistently charts four years after release.

Check out the latest releases for this week, and be sure to come back next Monday for a new update. Note: The prices and deals compiled below are accurate at the time we published this story, but all are subject to change. Continue reading… View the full article
  18. The previously teased Shin Megami Tensei game for Nintendo Switch has officially been revealed as Shin Megami Tensei V. As promised by Atlus last month at Tokyo Game Show, new information about the upcoming Switch title was revealed on October 23. Check out the new teaser below for a look at the game's demon infested urban setting. Atlus has yet to share details regarding when the new RPG will be released. Shin Megami Tensei V was first teased by Atlus back in January during the Nintendo Switch reveal event. Atlus had just started development on the project at that time and has yet to announce whether or not it will be localized for the west. Continue reading… View the full article
  19. We already reported on the Super Nt, Analogue's new high-definition Super NES that doesn't use software emulation, and now Analogue revealed each unit inludes an unreleased version of Super Turrican cooked right in. Each Super Nt includes a director's cut of the game, as well as the sequel Super Turrican 2, and a Super NES-style package for Super Turrican: Director's Cut. Analogue released a trailer for the newly-complete game as well. Super Turrican Director's Cut Box Continue reading… View the full article

  21. Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on January 26, 2018. Bandai Namco also announced two editions of the game with bonus content. The FighterZ Edition will include a 'FighterZ Pass' adding 8 extra characters to the roster, along with cosmetic items to go with them. The Ultimate Edition adds the FighterZ Pass, as well as a commentator voice pack, and the Anime Music pack, which adds 11 songs from the Dragon Ball anime to the soundtrack. It's not clear from Bandai Namco's press release whether the 8 bonus characters from the FighterZ Pass will be available at launch, or as a season pass of content - we'll update once they let us know. Digitally pre-ordering either of the two special editions will allow players to unlock SSGSS Goku and SSGSS Vegeta early, and all pre-orders for Xbox One and PS4 will offer early access to an open beta in January.

  22. Nintendo has announced an Animal Crossing-themed Nintendo Direct coming on Wednesday, October 25 (or late on October 24 in the US) - but it will focus exclusively on the upcoming smartphone game, and will not feature 3DS or Switch announcements. Announced on its Japanese Twitter account , Nintendo says the broadcast will take place at midday in Japan - that makes it October 24 at 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern, or October 25 at 4am UK / 2pm AEST. Nintendo UK has announced a second version for the region, at a slightly more friendly time of 7am on the 25th. Continue reading… View the full article
  23. Microsoft has revealed the first 13 backwards-compatible original Xbox games for Xbox One to IGN – several of which we got to play. These first 13 will be available tomorrow, October 24. All are enhanced with 1080p resolution, higher and/or smoother framerates, and faster loading times. These are the first 13 games you can play on any Xbox One if you own the title, beginning tomorrow: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Ninja Gaiden Black Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge Fuzion Frenzy Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Psychonauts Dead to Rights Continue reading… View the full article
  24. Microsoft’s Xbox backwards compatibility team is adding Xbox One X-specific enhancements to four high-profile Xbox 360 games that are already playable on Xbox One: Halo 3, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Assassin’s Creed. All four updates will be available for free to anyone who owns the game on November 7, the same day the Xbox One X launches. Some titles now have 10-bit color depth unlocked where they previously had 8-bit, others have HDR lighting enabled, and all have nine times the on-screen pixels. I got to see Halo 3 running in a developer mode that clearly showcased the difference. The left half of the screen was standard Xbox 360 emulation on Xbox One, which already offers framerate smoothing and other subtle benefits. On the right it had HDR and the 9x pixel count.

  25. A hidden console command lets players turn The Evil Within 2 into a first-person survival horror. As reported by DSOGaming, the modification switches the camera from behind the shoulder of Sebastian Castellanos to within his tormented grey matter. The line of code necessary for the change seems to have been left in the game by developers Tango Gameworks. Due to the fact that there is a first-person section already in The Evil Within 2, it is unclear whether this is an Easter egg for savvy fans or an experimental tool used by the development team.
