Default General Gaming News

Hi guys

I think it would be good if we had a separate thread for general gaming news so that the lounge can be freed up for gaming chat. Hope it works well so we can try and revive the interesting conversations that used to go on there while still getting our fill of all the current gaming stories. zenith we need you here!

Red Dead Redemption publisher president defends lockboxes


November 30, 2017 80 comments

Not everyone in the video game industry is shying away from lockboxes or denouncing them outright. Take-Two Interactive President Karl Slatoff took the side of the ESA by saying that he doesn’t consider lockboxes gambling and that the Red Dead Redemption 2 studio will continue using microtransactions going forward.


“The whole gambling regulator thing, we don’t view that sort of thing as gambling. Our view of it is the same as the ESA statement for the most part,” Slatoff said during a recent confererence. “That’s going to play its course, but in terms of the consumer and the noise you hear in the market right now, it’s all about content […] You can’t force the consumer to do anything. You try to do your best to create the best experience you possibly can to drive engagement. And driving engagement creates value in entertainment. That’s just how it’s always been and always will be.”

Dauntless previews the mechanics of cells


December 1, 2017 2 comments






The next major Dauntless patch will bring new ways to play with the help of cells. Other games might call them sockets, but here they’re called cells, and they’re what allow you to change your weapons and armor into being more specific improvements for your preferred playstyle.



Sure, they can just boost your attack power or whatever, but the article on these new additions makes it clear that flat bonuses are the least of what you can get.


Want to run faster every time you dodge an attack? That’s in here. An increase to stagger rate? Also there. Like smacking things for long combos? You can unlock bonuses for that,Read more

XSEED Games teases three unannounced 2018 titles in Q&A promotion

Two have been uncovered. What could the third be?




XSEED Games teased three unannounced game localizations for 2018 in a promotional image for a Twitter Q&A the company is running.
The lower part of the image features XSEED Games’ announced 2018 lineup, which includes Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin for PlayStation 4 and PC, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II for PC, Zwei: The Arges Adventure for PC, and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero for Switch, alongside three silhouettes.


ResetEra user Saphirax uncovered the second silhouette to be English Detective Mysteria, an otome visual novel published by Marvelous for PSP in 2013 and PS Vita in 2016.


XSEED Games Forums user Banballow discovered the third silhouette to be Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal, the upcoming remake of Senran Kagura Burst and Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows for PlayStation 4.


The first silhouette has yet to be figured out. If you have any ideas, let us know in the comments!
Thanks, ResetEra.
