One of the most interesting exploration and survival titles around is arriving on the PlayStation platform later this year. Announced today, hot off the presses, Sunless Sea and its Zubmariner DLC have been revealed as a combined package for the PS4. Taking place in Fallen London and heavily focusing on literature-drive gameplay experience, the RPG of of the ocean was praised by the late TotalBiscuit in his WTF Is… Video Series.
The San Diego Comic Con and Los Angeles Anime Expo events of 2018 played host to a few important updates on games that many fans are waiting for. Lego DC Super-Villains, Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition, and Marvel’s Spider-Man were among the titles showcased at this year’s west coast events aimed towards comic book fans and the anime community.
Americans are able to get a special deal on the Nintendo Switch for a limited time through Google Express (sorry, no Canadians allowed) via discount code on checkout with Target selected as the retailer. This deal comes from the infamous industry watchdog Wario64 who should be followed by anyone who wants to know the latest in gaming discounts, pre-order information, and other rare purchasing options for the latest games and technology. The person behind this account is unidentified and though theories have gone around about them being Suda51 or another industry figurehead hiding behind an anonymous call-sign, recent posts seem to hint that they might be in fact a games journalist.
In any event, this deal is something you wouldn’t want to pass up if you need a Nintendo Switch and feel the timing is right to budget for one. We’ll do our best to include instructions on how to go through with the offer in this article. It should be noted that the discount is designed for items in the cart and not specifically the Switch, but underground gamers likely stumbled upon it and repeated its usage for buying Switch hardware before Wario64 decided to share it. He obviously operates within a pretty clever group of gamers who seem to always have the latest and greatest deals at their fingertips.
Even so, this particular deal is only valid until July 17, 2018 so if you want it then you’ll need to hurry up and buy it within the next ten days. It also has to be in stock in a nearby store.
The indie label best known for games like Hotline Miami, Titan Souls, and their involvement with the Serious Sam series, Devolver Digital hosts something that you could try to call a Press Conference each year at E3. In reality, these shows are more of a parody of the traditional Press Conference, but we love Devolver Digital as a publisher since their taste in games is excellent and they serve as a curator of finely tuned, fun-focused indie titles the world may have otherwise never heard about.
They’ve brought “hand-crafted games” as they call them from obscurity and helped them rise to blockbuster success at times, and at minimum they give great games a chance to be played. So here’s our recap on what happened on the Devolver Digital stage at this year’s E3 2018.
The iconic hack and slash RPG from yester-year is getting a new installation. Whether it will be a Diablo IV sized title or something smaller, no one is quite sure of yet, but Blizzard has been spotted hiring a new Art Director as well as dungeon designers for something Diablo-related.
Tomorrow better include some new exclusive games from Microsoft if they don’t want to be crushed under Sony’s boot. A new rumor suggests that the only first party game left that Xbox owners expected to get this year has been delayed to 2019. Pre-orders have been cancelled. Unlike most rumors this leak actually has some pretty strong sources.
It has become a problem how many leaks and rumors we’re having leading up to E3. While our Editor-In-Chief recently ran through a majority of the rumors out there in Pre-E3 2018: Rumor Roundup – the good, the bad, and the ugly, there have been even more rumors popping up since. We aim to cover everything great that E3 has to offer, so be assured that if they are real you’ll probably see them center stage in our wrap-up files come game-day. That being said, I wanted to take a moment to deliver one more rumor at least, which has popped up just a few moments ago.
Have you ever wanted to earn real-life money while playing a video game? In the upcoming crypto-game (currently in Beta testing as of today) players will slowly earn a crypto-currency while playing a title that brings back the concept of an older title that originally debuted as a downloadable application for Texas Instrument Ti-84 calculators (although it was inspired by an earlier MS-DOS version based on a game called Star Trader).
Perhaps those politely written goodbyes from Sony and Jack Tretton four years ago were not all that genuine. We don’t know what really led to the end of Jack’s reign as PlayStation CEO for Sony. Helping turn around the PlayStation 3 through serving gamers and re-branding the console with tons of pro-consumer moves and solid game studio investments, perhaps the executive behind those well written speeches got sick of all that customer service. Instead, Jack Tretton now joins a group of vultures in predatory practices against gamers on the board of directors at a company called Scientific Revenue which offers to get players spending double the usual amount on in-game purchases, lootboxes, micro-transactions, DLC, and more.
