    • Axiom Verge Publisher Donates Profits to Developer's Son

      2 days ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      With all the complaints going on about publisher greed these days, it’s nice to hear some refreshing stories from around the industry every now and then. According to a new blog post from Axiom Verge developer Tom Happ, the publisher of the 2D shooter is donating a huge chunk of the game’s profits to the healthcare costs of Happ’s son, who suffers from a lifelong condition known as Kernicterus, which affects his hearing and motor functions. Happ wrote in his blog about the game’s retail launch: “After we decided to move forward with BadLand Games as the publisher, they offered to donate 75% of their share to a special fund dedicated to Alastair’s ongoing health care costs. They didn’t want to publicize it, since none of us wanted to be seen as trying to use my son’s suffering as a marketing tool for the game. I hope this doesn’t come off that way. I just wanted to thank them for their generosity in offering that up, since it was definitely something they didn’t have to do.” 


      So there’s a bit of a dose of positive news to be thankful for, just ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. 

    • What Are Your Predictions for The Game Awards?

      2 days ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      E3 gave us our big midyear dose of game reveals and trailers, and it looks like The Game Awards is looking to do the same thing come December. 


      In recent tweets about the show, producer Geoff Keighley said that in terms of the sheer number of games they have in store, this is going to be the biggest world premiere lineup they’ve done yet. In another Twitter exchange, one gamer asked if any of those world premieres include games we don’t know about yet, Keighley answered with a definitive “yes definitely” Posters on Reset Era have done some speculating about just how many reveals this could lead to -- and according to one poster, the previous record holder was in the Spike iteration of the show back in 2014, which featured 12 world premieres. 


      With the ceremonies just a couple of weeks away, that means it’s time to get those predictions and speculation engines up and running. What do you think we’ll be seeing at the show? The Game Awards will air on December 7.

    • Lucasfilm Makes Statement on Battlefront II Loot Boxes

      3 days ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Just about everybody’s giving their two cents about Star Wars: Battlefront II’s microtransactions -- with people from all over the gaming industry weighing in about the game’s loot boxes and progression. However, there’s been one notable exception up until now -- Lucasfilm. The production company has finally offered their comments on the game after all the ups and downs -- but mostly downs -- of the last week. 


      They said in a statement to the Washington Post over the weekend: “Star Wars has always been about the fans — and whether it’s ‘Battlefront’ or any other Star Wars experience, they come first. That’s why we support EA’s decision to temporarily remove in-game payments to address fan concerns.” 


      Annnnd how will you feel when they come back?  

    • Nintendo Switch: Best Invention of 2017?

      3 days ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Is the Nintendo Switch officially one of the best inventions of 2017? That’s what Time Magazine says -- the publication just posted its annual list of the top 25 inventions of the year, with Nintendo’s new console joining the ranks. The Switch lands alongside other notable entries of 2017, such as the Mars InSight lander, the standalone Oculus Go headset, safer football helmets, super sustainable crops, and... fidget spinners. OK, maybe that last one discredits the list just a tad, but it’s still interesting to see Nintendo back on the forefront of pop culture, after spending a few years away thanks to the lackluster sales of the Wii U. We’ll have to see what heights the console climbs to in 2018.

    • Civilization V Director Leaves Paradox

      6 days ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Jon Shafer, the director of Civilization V, joined up with Paradox Interactive earlier this year -- and according to a new announcement from the company, he's already out. Shafer was hired just about 6 months ago at the developer -- which also created Cities: Skyline, Magicka, and Mount & Blade -- to serve as game director for an unannounced project. 


      But now the two have split due to the tried and true "creative differences," based on a statement by Paradox. The studio said: "Jon is an ambitious person with a lot of drive and passion and he has led some good discussions in our teams over the past few months. However, during the course of these discussions, it has become clear that we want different things creatively and we have therefore taken the mutual decision that it is best to part ways. We wish Jon the very best in the next part of his career and would like to thank him for his efforts during his time with us." 


      It's a shame that things fell apart so quickly -- it'll be interesting to see not only where Shafer lands, but also what this unannounced game is, once it finally sees the light of day. 

    • Vivendi Backs Off Purchasing Ubisoft... For Now

      1 week ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      One ongoing major story in the video game industry over the last couple of years has been Vivendi's -- apparent -- impending hostile takeover of Ubisoft. But, in light of Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot's recent attempts to hold on to more of the company, it looks like Vivendi might be backing off from its gaming ambitions. For now, at least. 


      Vivendi said in their Q3 earnings statement that while they fully intend to pursue more activity in the gaming sector (their shares in Ubisoft represent a $1.1 billion dollar investment), they have no intention of doing that in the next 6 months. In the press release, they clearly state that they won't be 1) jumping past the 30% threshold that would require them to make a bid on the company, and 2) won't be pursuing representation on Ubisoft's board of directors. That's all great news for Ubisoft and the Guillemots, because it means they've got 6 months to breathe a sigh of relief. 


      However, the company won't exactly be sitting on their laurels. Ubisoft said in a statement: "Ubisoft takes note of Vivendi’s statement. We will remain vigilant about their long-term intentions and will continue to pursue our strategy of growth and value creation in the interest of all our shareholders." 


      Translation: come at me, bro. 

    • Bungie Details Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris Expansion

      1 week ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Eyes up, Guardians, because Destiny 2 is about to get a whole lot more content soon thanks to the first expansion -- and fortunately, Bungie has now detailed some of what we can expect from the upcoming Curse of Osiris. The developers held a livestream yesterday, giving loads of information about the game, including the fact that we’ll learn more of the mysterious Osiris, and that the story takes place a few months after the events of the main game, with the Vex getting up to no good on Mercury. 


      There will also be new playable areas on Mercury like the Infinite Forest, which offers new combinations of enemies each time you visit, as well as a new Raid Lair unlocked on the Leviathan, with new activities and a new boss. One nice reveal is that Raid Lairs also offer short form activities to do with 5 friends, which aren’t quite as big of a time investment as proper raids. Plus, Heroic Strikes are back! And of course, you’ll also have access to new gear and a higher light level of 335. Curse of Osiris launches December 5.

    • GameStop Puts Rental Memberships on Hold

      1 week ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      If you were looking forward to participating in GameStop's PowerPass Program... well, you might have to wait a little bit longer. GameStop has announced that they're putting the program -- which allows gamers to rent unlimited used games for 6 months at a $60 price point -- on hold for the time being. PowerPass was originally supposed to have its soft launch this week, but according to GameStop employees who spoke with Kotaku, the company's systems just weren't equipped to handle all those transactions. A more official response was also sent to Kotaku by a GameStop spokesperson: “We have elected to temporarily pause the roll out of the new PowerPass subscription service, based on a few program limitations we have identified. We feel this is the right thing to do for now to ensure we are able to provide our guests an exceptional service." PowerPass was definitely an interesting strategy from the retailer, especially after the launch of Xbox's GamePass. We'll see how well it does... once it finally gets off the ground. 

    • EA Buys Titanfall Developer Respawn

      2 weeks ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Oh boy, it looks like EA just scooped up another major developer -- Respawn. Word just dropped that Respawn will now be a part of EA's family of studios, to the tune of a whopping $455 million dollars. That shouldn't be too big of a surprise, considering how the studios have worked together on not only Titanfall, but also an upcoming Star Wars game. Respawn CEO Vince Zampella said that's why this acquisition makes perfect sense: “We have worked together a long time from the inception of the studio. [An acquisition] has come up from time to time. The question was, where we are in the industry, how do we take the next step in making bigger, better games. We see the need for bigger resources to make bigger games.”


      EA insists that the creativity for Respawn to do what they want will still be there... of course, we'll see how that proves out over time. EA hasn't exactly had a great track record lately when it comes to some of their biggest studios. 

    • Sledgehammer Didn't Really Want to Go to World War II

      2 weeks ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Despite the recent smashing success of Call of Duty: World War II, it looks like that wasn't always developer Sledgehammer's first choice for their game's setting. According to a new interview with Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg, Sledgehammer would have gone back to the Advanced Warfare well for a sequel to that series -- but it seems Activision intervened. Hirshberg told Newsweek that Activision convinced Sledgehammer to go to World War II, saying: "We knew they would become historians, that they would tackle it with authenticity, give it tremendous care and we also knew they would capture the unspeakable scale of World War II. What I love about this game is that anyone’s who’s looking forward to going back to the roots, the gritty, human-scale, boots-on-the-ground, militaristic, authentic experience that Call Of Duty is known for, this game delivers it in a big way." Judging by how well the game has sold out of the gate, everyone involved is probably happier it turned out like that.
