  1. One of the things I love most about BitSummit – the yearly Kyoto-based indie games showcase - is that it’s a very egalitarian-feeling event. One booth may have a solo dev from Scandinavia demoing his or her very first project, the next may be showing off Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, and be manned by the legendary Koji Igarashi himself. Walking around the show floor you’ll see this kind of juxtaposition repeatedly: there’s no barrier between the industry newcomers and the veterans – and if you spot the likes of Swery, Shuhei Yoshida or Keita Takahashi, you can just say hello.

  2. E3 is the big opportunity for developers to show off a year's worth of work, but every year some of the biggest surprises are what wasn't at the show. E3 2019 was huge for some of the most anticipated games coming in 2019 and 2020, but with Sony abstaining from this year's conference we were denied the further details we've been craving since last year's reveals. But Sony's games weren't the only ones that were MIA - here, we've collected every big game we could think of that was missing from this year's lineup. Death Stranding Continue reading… View the full article

  4. Pokemon Sword and Shield, the first mainline generation of Pokemon games to be coming to the Nintendo Switch, will sadly not let you be the best like no one ever was, as not every Pokemon will be catchable in the new generation. The full Pokedex won't be available to Pokemon Sword and Shield players, according to a recent interview Famitsu conducted with producer Junichi Masuda. Instead, Sword and Shield will only allow for Pokemon to be caught that are included in the Galar region Pokedex. Masuda told Famitsu a large part of the reasoning came down to the growing number of Pokemon species. Continue reading… View the full article
  5. Stadia, Google’s foray into the home console/streaming market, will allow users to change their names at any time they want, according to a Google spokesperson. In a report originally by PCGamesN, Google confirmed that it has adopted a naming service that will allow users to change their onscreen ID, so long as the name they want isn’t already taken by another user. Patrick Seybold, director of comms for Stadia, told PCGamesN that the process will be “relatively straightforward” (PCGamesN’s words) once Stadia launches its Pro service in November, the same time the “Founders Edition” becomes available to early buyers. The service will become available to the public at large sometime in 2020. Continue reading… View the full article

  7. Keanu Reeves is playing a rocker named Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077, lead man in a band called Samurai - but according to him, he won’t be doing his owning singing. We spoke to Reeves during E3 2019, and when we asked if CD Projekt Red was going to have him perform Silverhand’s songs himself, he said “no, they don’t want me to sing,” with a bit of disappointment in his voice.

  8. Year after year, E3 spawns some of the biggest and most-read news stories at IGN, and 2019's show was no different. As the industry nurses its collective E3 hangover, we decided to look back on all the news from last week and share which stories resonated most with the IGN audience. From Microsoft's next-gen plans and Nintendo's comments on crunch, to surprise announcements and release date reveals, these are the 10 biggest news stories from E3 2019, based on IGN traffic. 10. George R. R. Martin and FromSoftware's Elden Ring Officially Revealed Bloodborne and Dark Souls developer FromSoftware officially revealed Elden Ring, its collaboration with A Song of Ice and Fire author George R. R. Martin, during Microsoft's E3 press conference. Elden Ring is an open-world, third-person action-RPG with Dark Souls-like gameplay, according to director Hidetaka Miyazaki. Martin, meanwhile, was responsible for crafting the world's mythology. Continue reading… View the full article
  9. I have a few weaknesses that will instantly interest me in a game: Stealth games that don't let you shoot your way out. Exploring creepy forgotten ruins and piecing the lore together. NPCs that give you actual directions instead of putting a big marker on your map. After playing Spiritfarer for 10 seconds, I found another weakness - being able to hug almost every character you meet. Sure it may be a gimmick, but it's also the most genuine way to show your appreciation for a non-player character in any game in recent memory. Think about all the friends you've made in Animal Crossing that never really knew how much they meant to you. With Spiritfarer, you get a double-edged sword of being able to connect with the people you meet and make an impact in their lives (afterlives?), but must be ready to eventually say goodbye.

  10. NetherRealm Studios announced the Kombat League ranked mode will be added as a free content update tomorrow, June 18. Kombat League is a four-week, seasonal ranked mode where players compete against other fighters online to earn exclusive in-game rewards. It’s comprised of nine tiers, where players start as Apprentice and fight their way to the rank of Elder God, with each rank unlocking exclusive in-game items. Players can also earn in-game items playing in daily and seasonal quests, and once a season ends, a new season will start immediately with new rewards and incentives. You can see some of these unlockable costumes and learn even more about how Kombat League works in the trailer below. Continue reading… View the full article
  11. The extended gameplay demo of Cyberpunk 2077 shown behind closed doors during E3 2019 will be made public at PAX West 2019. Revealed by CD Projekt Red global community lead Marcin Momot on Twitter, industry insider Shinobi602 wrote "Cyberpunk 2077 extended gameplay demo won’t be made public until after Gamescom 2019 (August 20-24),” to which Momot responded “It’s going to happen exactly during PAX West.” This year’s PAX West is set to take place in Seattle, WA from August 30 - September 2. CD Projekt Red previously revealed it wouldn’t show this demo publicly until after Gamescom, but didn’t initially announce a specific timeframe. Continue reading… View the full article
  12. It says a lot about Carrion that the first human you're able to ambush and rip to pieces can be found sitting on a toilet. You play as an escaped creature—an amorphous amalgamation of tendrils and teeth—stalking down dimly lit corridors and slinking through vents in your quest for freedom and vengeance on the scientists that imprisoned you. At first you'll be fairly puny looking, but as you expand and devour, you'll gain health and mass until you start looking like a spaghetti monster from heck. Developer Phobia Game Studios has created a sort of reverse-horror game—the best kind—as it lets you re-enact scenes from your favorite creature features. Do you slowly crawl though a duct and pop out to yank scientists to their doom one by one? Or would you prefer to madly rampage through a lab with incredible speed—grabbing everything you can wrap your tentacles around and flinging them at any who dare stand against you? You'll be able to choose for yourself when it's out on PC sometime next year. Continue reading… View the full article
  13. I've been trying to decide whether I think Spike Rush is better than Rocket League's base mode. When I'm shown it at E3, the Psyonix devs in attendance casually introduce it as a component part of their ongoing Radical Summer event. It comes alongside a neon swathe of '80s nostalgia-inducing cosmetics (from Ultimate Warrior decals to ET-themed wheels to a drivable KITT from Knight Rider), and another mode, Beach Ball. None of that is as good as Spike Rush. The (very good) pitch I'm given is that if regular Rocket League is soccer with cars, Spike Rush is rugby with cars. Arriving for free on July 1, the mode's fairly simple. There are still three cars on each side, and each is trying to get a big ball into the opponents' goal, earning a point every time they do.

  14. The only assets Black Forest Games has taken from 2005’s Destroy All Humans! are the original voice lines and music. Every other aspect has been rebuilt to bring alien anti-hero Cryptosporidium 137 aka Crypto back to our screens. The developers describe this new outing as “not a remake, but a remake of what people remember it being”. In my short time seeing the game I knew exactly what they meant, for better or worse. At its core, Destroy All Humans! is still about exactly that: destroying all humans. Their towns, army bases and general peace of mind. It’s a third-person shooter but also incorporates stealth elements, and vehicle combat when commanding Crypto’s Saucer. You’re encouraged to cause as much destruction as possible, raining death from above, then strolling through the ruins finding new and interesting ways to interfere with the survivors.

  15. Long story short: Dragon Quest Builders 2 is shaping up to be just like the original, but with smart new features and quality-of-life improvements. Many of those new features weren't accessible in the demo I played at E3 2019, but you can get a glimpse of them in the trailer below. According to the producers, the idea behind the original Dragon Quest Builders was to take a sandbox-style building game (i.e. Minecraft) and give it the structure of a, you know, regular video game. It was designed so that anyone, young or old, longtime gamer or novice, could pick up a controller and learn how to build cool stuff. Dragon Quest Builders 2 is based on those same principles, but expands your capabilities. Continue reading… View the full article
