At the tail-end of last week, Capcom delivered a multi-platform release of the Resident Evil 2 Remake – the so-called ‘1-shot’ demo that gives users just 30 minutes to play a very small portion of the full game. It’s shaping up to be a beautiful game that sees the consoles push higher-end features of the foundation RE engine for the first time, and it also sees the developer make some fascinating technical choices for both the vanilla and enhanced consoles.… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2019-resident-evil-2-remake-demo-analysis URL of source article.
I’m only going to say this once, just to experience what typing these words feels like: People who were born when I played Onimusha Warlords for the first time are now old enough to drive. Or have they already been driving for a year now? See, I don’t even know anymore. This feels necessary to point out, not to sound uppity, but because any look at a remaster is inevitably going to be coloured by the memories you have of… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-01-15-onimusha-warlords-review-samurai-royalty-returns URL of source article.
Believe it not, we’re actually in the thick of the January sales. We’ve spotted an increasing amount of physical game bundles over the last few months, although the quality of them can vary drastically, sometimes offering little more than a paltry bargain-bin haul. However, we are not too displeased with this set at Currys consisting of Tekken 7, Mafia 3: Deluxe Edition, Project Cars 2 and the Game of the Year edition of Overwatch on Xbox One for £39.99.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has surprised launched on Xbox Game Pass.Capcom’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which first launched back in 2011, is superb, chaotic fighting game fun (and much better than the disappointing Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite).Avalanche’s Just Cause 3, which came out in 2015, was supposed to launch on Xbox Game Pass today, 10th January, but it surprise-launched a day early. The open-world blast is available now.Read more… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-01-10-ultimate-marvel-vs-capcom-3-surprise-launches-on-xbox-game-pass URL of source article.
Emotions are complicated. This isn’t something you need to be told by a psychologist, it’s something that as a human being you intrinsically understand to be true. The advantage of complicated things is that you get to explore them, really dive into them and dissect them. Maybe you’ll never understand the exact science behind it, but getting to see the potential for each individual feeling is something that gaming does very well. After all, with an interactive medium such as… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-01-09-how-games-can-help-to-explore-the-many-colours-of-grief URL of source article.
Epic has confirmed it’s bringing back its 14 Days of Fortnite event following a mix-up with the end date.The event closed on 2nd January, a couple of days earlier than expected given some players had read a Reddit post by Epic Games’ David Spazinski, suggesting it would run until 3rd or 4th January. To compensate, Epic gave away the Equalizer Glider, but after further reflection it’s decided to bring the entire event back to give players a second chance.”We communicated… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-01-06-all-14-days-of-fortnite-challenges-return-following-end-date-mix-up URL of source article.
Composer Mick Gordon is recruiting a “Heavy Metal Screamers” choir for an unspecified project that is highly likely to be, if not quite confirmed, Doom Eternal. “I’m currently writing music for a video game. I really want to record a choir,” Gordon told his YouTube followers (thanks, Polygon). “But for this project, I don’t want to record a regular choir; I want to record a choir made up entirely of Heavy Metal Screamers.””To the best of my knowledge, I don’t… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-01-06-doom-eternal-composer-wants-you-to-join-his-up-and-coming-heavy-metal-screamers-choir URL of source article.
Home is a children’s book by the writer and illustrator Carson Ellis. It’s concerned, as you might expect, with all the sorts of places that people might find to live.The book is built around a series of paintings by Ellis – watercolours, I think, but I might be wrong about this stuff. And it’s quietly fantastical, if such a combination is possible. “Home is a house in the country,” is how the whole thing kicks off, and there’s a nice… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-01-06-home-is-a-book-a-puzzle-and-a-clue-as-to-why-some-games-are-so-fascinating URL of source article.
One of the standout pieces at the V&A’s video game exhibition Design, Play, Disrupt isn’t a game or even an interesting design document. It’s Le Blanc Seing, a painting by Belgian surrealist Rene Magritte, on loan from the National Gallery of Art in Washington. The painting made its way to London to acknowledge a reference in Kentucky Road Zero, the adventure game released by Cardboard Computer in 2013.As magnificent as it can be to see the real version of a… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-01-05-what-games-can-learn-from-surrealism URL of source article.
What does the future hold for the Xbox One S? At Digital Foundry, we’ve noted something of a concerning trend for Microsoft’s base console – while system exclusives continue to hold up well from a quality perspective, top-end third-party titles are pushing the system to its limits – with sometimes disappointing results. The question is this: if the S is losing pace with the competition, how well can it hold up in the years to come? After all, its successor… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2019-xbox-one-s-is-falling-behind-but-could-shape-the-future URL of source article.
