  1. Bandai Namco has announced a new title for iOS and Android. Dragon Ball Legends was unveiled at the company's GDC presentation yesterday with the biggest feature being global, real-time PvP. A 3D, 3v3 fighting game, Legends has players control their chosen characters by tapping cards at the bottom of the screen. Dragon Ball Legends overseas producer, Toshitaka Tachibana, took to the stage to provide more details, describing the 3D gameplay as "heavily action oriented" and "exactly what the Dragon Ball fans wanted on a mobile app." The global, real-time PvP is really the main event, allowing players from all over the world to face off against one another. Global PvP means players won't be separated by regions or areas, as it would "lose the point of having a global PvP system to begin with." Continue reading… View the full article

  3. Fortnite iOS launched last week and players spent $1 million on in-app purchases within the first 72 hours. According to data from Sensor Tower, the game has raked in over $1.5 million worldwide so far, which is impressive, considering the release has been limited to invite-only on iOS. Sensor Tower reports that, based on cosmetic in-app purchases alone, Fortnite has grossed around a third of the revenue that Pokemon Go earned in its first four days on iOS. Niantic managed to make $4.9 million in four days, so Fortnite's numbers really aren't too shabby. The game also topped the iOS charts in 47 countries less than 24 hours after launch, and ranked within the top 10 in 58 countries. Fortnite will be coming to Android eventually, but for now, it's invite-only on iOS. Continue reading… View the full article
  4. Gravel is an arcade-style off road racer that eschews tight and twisty traditional rallying in favour of mostly high speed assaults on generously wide tracks carved through a variety of exotic locations. Think less Codermasters’ Dirt and more a store-brand SEGA Rally Revo. The problem is that Gravel sits in a weird place on the racing spectrum; the casual driving dynamics are easy enough to pick up but the racing itself is surprisingly plain and basic for a game unshackled from any licensed motorsport organisations. The result is a passable yet unremarkable racer in a marketplace thick with better ones. Gravel’s solo mode revolves around a globetrotting, fictional racing TV show dubbed ‘Off-Road Masters’ – but it’s only a thin thread of context to string together what’s essentially an entirely conventional single-player racing career mode. Other than the occasional boss race the only real baggage the TV show premise comes with is an unlikeable announcer I turned off very quickly. Continue reading… View the full article

  6. Proxi, a new mobile game from legendary game designer Will Wright, was revealed today during Unity's keynote at Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2018. Wright and developer Gallium Artists are creating the new title with Unity. Like the previous games Wright has created—which include SimCity, The Sims, and Spore—Proxi is a simulation game. In this new mobile game, however, players will construct worlds from their memories. At the outset, players will have a blank world they can then develop by using memories as their building blocks. Players can choose any topic they want—like "family adventures," for example—and place it into the world, creating islands of connected memories that will form into 3D worlds over time.

  7. After years of drip-fed glimpses into Rare’s cooperative shared-world pirate fantasy, the time to round up a crew and set sail on this persistent sea is finally upon us. Until today, our entire experience with Sea of Thieves has come from the extensive beta tests leading up to launch. And then, as if by magic, the servers sprang to life a day early. So, now that we're in the world, this review in progress will unfold over the next week with regular updates, but to kick things off, here’s what I think so far. It’s not hard to see Rare’s deft use of Unreal Engine 4 to bring this colorful pirate sea to life. Sea of Thieves’ gorgeous lighting explodes across the sky at sunrise and sunset, and pops life into what’s some of the best looking water I’ve ever seen in a game. But the impressive technical aspects of Sea of Thieves’ style work in harmony with the cartoon-ish style of its pirate characters, ships, and island outposts to create a lighthearted environment that both dazzles and amuses, like a gorgeously illustrated storybook.

  8. If variety is the spice of life, then Heroes of the Storm is the MOBA genre’s ghost pepper. Recognizable characters from Blizzard’s most iconic games face off against each other on themed maps with unique objectives that serve as lightning rods for teamfights. Heroes of the Storm also takes a more simplified and accessible approach to the genre that bucks MOBA trends by implementing a streamlined talent system and team-shared experience. It doesn’t always work, but when its at its best Heroes of the Storm can be one of the most varied and exciting 5v5 competitive games around. This is a MOBA with all the hallmarks of a Blizzard-produced game: a punchy art style, responsive controls, and loads of stuff to do to work toward satisfying unlocks. But most importantly, Heroes of the Storm’s take on the MOBA formula is distinctive because it’s willing to kill some of the genre’s sacred cows in order to make its mechanics easier to learn and its matches flow differently.

  11. The concept of a man-made mechanical creature, man or monster or anything else for that matter, has excited sci-fi storytellers since nearly the beginning of the science fiction genre. But it's one thing to create a robot that can fit through doors and sit at the dinner table, and it's another thing altogether to create a giant robot that can tromp through cities, knocking over buildings, fighting giant monsters, and looking danged good in the process. Giant robots are now a well-established part of the popular culture, and are regularly featured in movies, comic books, video games, television, toys and beyond. But not all giant robots are created equal, and some have left a bigger footprint than others. Heck, some of them are just plain cooler than others. And those are the robots we are going to highlight today. Continue reading… View the full article
  12. Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, the Fortnite streamer whose popularity has skyrocketed in recent months, is making over $500,000 a month from Twitch. According to CNBC, via Eurogamer, Blevins is pulling in over half a million dollars a month from a combination of sources, but the lion's share of his income comes from Amazon Prime and Twitch Prime subscriptions. According to Blevins a recent promotion granting Prime subscribers in-game loot in Fortnite is "one of the main reasons for the influx of subscribers." Continue reading… View the full article

The data comes from Sensor Tower, and shows that Fortnite is sitting in the top 10 in 58 countries. Continue reading… View the full article
  15. A Day One Patch has been rolled out for Sea of Thieves. In that there is an eyepatch you can buy with a "1" on it. Rare has poked fun at the practice of launch patching with a tongue-in-cheek cosmetic item. The 'Day One Patch' is available from the General Clothing Shop located on the pirate hub. 'Day One Patch' seen in Sea of Thieves' General Clothing Shop Before you embark, you can pick it up for the measly price of one gold coin. Chump change for any self-respecting pirate.
