Looks at least as good as the last Godzilla movie. But it seems like they are blowing their whole wad of Godzilla vs movies in one go. It's either going to be super long or really short on story IMO.

Capcom Announces Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Expansion for Acclaimed, Record-Breaking Action RPG Coming Autumn 2019

Hunters around the globe can prance in joy! Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, a massive expansion for the highly-acclaimed more than 10 million unit-selling Monster Hunter: World. The new content will be available for download in autumn 2019 for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, with more details on the PC release to be shared in future announcements. The content-rich Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will feature new quest ranks, locales, monsters, moves and gear in addition to a full narrative experience that continues on from the ending of Monster Hunter: World. The Monster Hunter: World base game is required for the expansion and is currently available across consoles and PC. More information on the expansion will be shared next spring. A new teaser trailer offering a sneak peek at the upcoming Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion is available to download from the Capcom press site now.

In addition, there is plenty of exciting content for current players of Monster Hunter: World to look forward to soon. Capcom is working on a special collaboration with CD Projekt RED to bring professional monster hunter Geralt from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt into the New World early next year. Unique quests will offer a brand-new type of gameplay that blends the immersive RPG experience of The Witcher 3 with Monster Hunter: World. The voice actors for Geralt have also contributed newly recorded dialogue to further enhance this collaboration.

In the meantime, the Kulve Taroth Siege, a special event quest which allows up to 16 players in groups of four each to team up towards a common goal, will return on December 20. This time however, a tougher Arch Tempered version of this colossal monster which yields more powerful rewards awaits hunters. As another special thank you to hunters around the world, to mark a year since Monster Hunter: World launched we’d like to announce The Appreciation Fest, coming up on the anniversary of the game’s release in January 2019. The Appreciation Fest will include a newly decorated Gathering Hub, special equipment that can be obtained in brand new quests and a slew of new anniversary quests for everyone.

For players who have not yet tried Monster Hunter: World, a free Trial Version of the base game will be available on PlayStation 4 system and Xbox One starting tomorrow, December 11 at 4pm PST through December 17 at 3:59pm PST. Offering a hefty preview, the Trial Version allows new players to experience quests up to the 3-star level and online multiplayer up to Hunter Rank 4. This will provide plenty of opportunity to try out a variety of quests, craft and upgrade equipment, and join in on the game’s trademark cooperative multiplayer action with existing owners of the game. In addition, any saved progress transfers over to the main game, so new players are encouraged to start their hunting journey.

In Monster Hunter: World, players take on larger than life monsters in a variety of vast, living, breathing ecosystems either solo or with up to three other hunters via online co-op, complete with drop-in functionality, a first for the series. The story follows the journey of the elder dragons as they begin their once a decade migration across the sea to a land known as the New World in an event referred to by inhabitants as the Elder Crossing. As part of the Guild’s Research Commission, players must embark on a grand journey to this massive, mysterious land and uncover the secrets behind this phenomenon. The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion will build upon this story when it releases in autumn 2019 for PlayStation 4 system and Xbox One. For all the title updates revealed today, including the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion, Capcom is planning to develop PC versions as well, and will share more on the availability in future announcements.

I know nothing about the original comic. Seems a bit odd and quirky. But I'll likely watch it just because it's Netflix.

Joker from Persona 5 Joins Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a Playable DLC Fighter

In a video that aired during The Game Awards, Nintendo revealed that Joker from the critically acclaimed Persona 5 game will be coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch as a playable DLC fighter. Joker is included in the first of five planned DLC packs, each containing one playable fighter, one new stage and a handful of music tracks. Each pack can be purchased for $5.99 each, but players can also purchase the Fighter’s Pass for $24.99, giving them access to all five DLC packs as they release.

The Persona games are a spinoff of the popular Shin Megami Tensei franchise, which has a long and storied history in the world of video games – with many of the games appearing on Nintendo systems. Sporting an iconic mask and a variety of weapons, Joker is the main character of Persona 5, a beloved game that won Best Role-Playing Game and was nominated for Game of the Year at last year’s The Game Awards.


The digital version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches in Nintendo eShop at 9 p.m. PT tonight (Dec. 6), with the physical version hitting stores on Dec. 7. In this massive video game crossover event, every fighter in Super Smash Bros. history is back, and they’re joined by newcomers like Daisy from the Super Mario series, Chrom from Fire Emblem, Inkling from Splatoon, Ridley and Dark Samus from Metroid, Ken from Street Fighter, Simon and Richter Belmont from Castlevania, King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong series, Isabelle from Animal Crossing, Incineroar from Pokémon, and, soon, Joker from Persona 5. Anyone who purchases and registers a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game with My Nintendo by Jan. 31, 2019, will receive Piranha Plant as a free playable fighter. With a smashing amount of content, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the biggest Super Smash Bros. game ever. For more information about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, visit smashbros.com.

“The Game Awards coupled with the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate marks one of the video game industry’s biggest nights, so it’s the ideal place to share news about one of the most anticipated games of the year,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime, who announced the Joker news to The Game Awards audience. “Even as we celebrate the best that our industry has to offer, we’re looking ahead to more excitement and surprises in 2019.”

Devil May Cry 5 Main Trailer, Xbox One Demo Launches December 7th
Dec 07, 2018 - 9:04 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Jackpot! Exclusive Xbox One Demo, V character details and further game features revealed for Devil May Cry 5!

At The Game Awards in Los Angeles, Capcom and Microsoft revealed that the first Devil May Cry 5 demo will be available for download exclusively on the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X starting tomorrow, December 7th. This smokin’, sexy, stylish demo sees players assume the role of young demon hunter Nero on the streets of Red Grave City as he takes on several demons including the Mighty Goliath in the eternal battle between the forces of good and evil. Players can execute devastating attacks on enemies using Nero’s special Devil Breaker arms designed by his partner in crime and self-professed “weapons artist” Nico. Combined with melee attacks using his ‘Red Queen’ sword and the long range firepower of his ‘Blue Rose’ handgun, the power of Nero’s Devil Breaker arms make the dramatic, adrenaline-fuelled action even more thrilling. This exclusive Xbox One demo gives players their first taste of what to expect when the iconic action series Devil May Cry returns with the launch of the full game on March 8th, 2019.

Viewers of The Game Awards were also treated to the first details of the mysterious character V. V may appear weak next to Nero and Dante, but he has the ability to unleash a unique fighting style that sees him summon three different demons to assist in battle:

• Shadow – a swift, four-legged panther-like creature with savage agility that sees him change his shape into sharp blades and needles for perfectly executed close-range attacks

• Griffon – a bird-like demon possessing aerial combat skills which allows him to carry V across Red Grave City and shoot lightning bolts at enemies from up above

• Nightmare – the most powerful of V’s demons. Nightmare’s gigantic size sees him destroy enemies with just his basic attack, and he can also fire beams of light to destroy any approaching foes.

Utilizing a combination of all three demons’ powers, players can take their enemies down to the brink of death, allowing V to swing into battle and finish them off with a devastating cane attack. A brand new trailer showcasing V’s unique gameplay is available for download from the Capcom press site here.

Capcom is also pleased to confirm the return of fan-favorite Bloody Palace Mode. Coming to the game as a free update shortly after launch in April 2019, this extra quick-elimination mode pits players against hordes of fast-approaching enemies and bosses until they reach the end. Details on the Cameo System in Devil May Cry 5 were also revealed, where players’ worlds collide with other demon hunters. While online, other players can be seen making special guest appearances in the game as they battle other demons around Red Grave City – even joining in the battle in some cases. Players can rate each other’s cameos in-game by rating their gameplay “Stylish!” if they’re impressed by their SSStylish skills.

Devil May Cry 5 is coming to the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 and PC on March 8th, 2019.

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Announced for Consoles and PC

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Overview

When The Stanley Parable came out, a lot of people asked us for more endings and more content.

We told them it didn’t need more content, that it was fine just the way it was, that it already had the perfect number of endings.

What a sorry sack of lies that was.

We knew it. We knew it were lying and we did it anyway. We’ve carried that shame around with us for years, a burden weighing on every moment of every day.

Enough is enough.

It’s time to fix this, to unburden our shame. Let us give you our shame, for you to carry it around instead. We’re sick of it.

From the liars who brought you the award winning indie game The Stanley Parable comes The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, an expansion to the original game with more content, more endings, more whimsical adventures of the two best friends Stanley and The Narrator. Coming to PC and consoles in 2019.

Tastefully seasoned with the bitter remorse of having deceived so many loyal fans for so long.

But seriously, this time it’s done. No more.

Typhoon Studios and 505 Games Reveal Colorful First-Person Adventure Game Journey to the Savage Planet Overview

The debut title from industry veterans Alex Hutchinson, Yassine Riahi and Reid Schneider’s new Montreal-based development studio, Typhoon Studios – in partnership with leading indie publisher 505 Games – was unveiled tonight at The Game Awards, with an exciting new trailer.

Launching in 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Journey to the Savage Planet is an upbeat first-person adventure game set in a bright and colourful alien world filled with weird and wonderful creatures. As an employee of Kindred Aerospace, which proudly touts its rating as the “4th Best Interstellar Exploration Company”, players will be dropped onto an uncharted planet deep in a fictitious, far-away corner of the universe. Launched with high hopes but little equipment and no real plan, players are tasked with exploring, cataloguing alien flora and fauna and determining if the planet is fit for human habitation.

“The core tenets of Typhoon are strong flavours, lots of intertwined systems, a penchant for bad jokes and a deep and abiding love of collaborative play,” said Alex Hutchinson, creative director and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “Journey to the Savage Planet will encompass all of those things and more.”

“This is a passion project for our team, many of whom came from larger companies including Ubisoft, Eidos and WB Games to embark on this indie game adventure with us,” said Reid Schneider, executive producer and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “It was a dream come true to reveal our project at The Game Awards,” added Yassine Riahi, technical director and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “We were thrilled to see the positive reaction from viewers and we’re eager to get Journey to the Savage Planet in your hands next year!”

Publisher 505 Games joins partners including MAKERS Fund and Epic, creators of the Unreal Engine, to bring the first game from the offbeat Canadian studio to life.

Pure Evil - The Game Awards
Dec 06, 2018 - 6:19 AM - by Evil Avatar

Tonight is the online awards show The Game Awards. I don’t usually do much promotion for the show since it has been universially terrible since inception. A lot of indie developers no one cares about and awards mostly given out to whatever company is the one bankrolling the show itself.

Not to mention that the show is going to be online only in the middle of the week?

This year there should be a few decent announcements. Far Cry 5 and that Obsidian Fallout Clone as well as something from the new Avengers game a teaser for Star Wars and a new Rage trailer.

It seems like a slightly stronger lineup than previous years, but I still think the awards themselves will mostly go to titles that people didn’t care much about — because those are the companies bankrolling the show. If they changed it to The Shill Awards at least it would have the sting of honesty.

Epic Launches Digital Games Store
Dec 04, 2018 - 6:53 PM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Announcing the Epic Games Store

For the past five years, we've been building tools enabling Epic to bring our games directly to players. We built the Epic Games launcher on PC and Mac featuring Fortnite and Unreal Engine; we built a worldwide digital commerce ecosystem supporting dozens of payment methods; and we gained great economies of scale thanks to Fortnite's growth.

As developers ourselves, we wanted two things: a store with fair economics, and a direct relationship with players. And we've heard that many of you want this too!

Soon we'll launch the Epic Games store, and begin a long journey to advance the cause of all developers. The store will launch with a hand-curated set of games on PC and Mac, then it will open up more broadly to other games and to Android and other open platforms throughout 2019.

The Epic Games store will operate on the following principles:

All Developers Earn 88%

Developers receive 88% of revenue. There are no tiers or thresholds. Epic takes 12%. And if you’re using Unreal Engine, Epic will cover the 5% engine royalty for sales on the Epic Games store, out of Epic’s 12%.

Have a Direct Relationship With Players

People who buy your games automatically subscribe to your newsfeed so you can reach them with game updates and news about upcoming releases. The newsfeed is front-and-center. You’ll also be able to reach your players through email, if they choose to share it.

Connect with Creators

YouTube content creators, Twitch streamers, bloggers, and others are at the leading edge of game discovery. The 10,000-strong Epic Games Support-A-Creator program helps you reach creators, so they can help you reach players. If you opt to participate, creators who refer players to buy your game will receive a share of the revenue that you set (tracked by code or affiliate marketing link). To jumpstart the creator economy, Epic will cover the first 5% of creator revenue-sharing for the first 24 months.

Developers Control Their Game Pages

As a developer, you control your game page and your newsfeed. There will be no store-placed ads or cross-marketing of competing games on your page, and no paid ads in search results.

All Engines Are Welcome

The Epic Games store is open to games built with any engine, and the first releases span Unreal, Unity and internal engines.

When You Succeed, We Succeed

We’ve built this store and its economic model so that Epic’s interests are aligned with your interests. Because of the high volume of Fortnite transactions, we can process store payments, serve bandwidth, and support customers very efficiently. From Epic’s 12% store fee, we’ll have a profitable business we’ll grow and reinvest in for years to come!

More details on upcoming game releases will be revealed at The Game Awards this Thursday, December 6th.
unrealengine.com

While I admire the idea of someone trying to compete with Steam, I think most people just don't want to install another digital platform on top of Steam/Origin/UPlay/Battlet.net.

Netflix Cancels Daredevil
Nov 30, 2018 - 7:44 AM - by Evil Avatar

And then there were two. Netflix has canceled Daredevil, leaving only Jessica Jones and The Punisher.

Quote:
The era of Marvel TV on Netflix seems to be coming to an end at the same time Disney is revving up its own streaming service with already announced Loki and Scarlett Witch series for Disney+ coming from Marvel’s Kevin Feige led film division. For now, the upcoming new seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher are still currently scheduled to run on Netflix as planned, sources say.

Overall, the cancellation of the series starring Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio, who had been tweeting about a forth season in the past few weeks, shows just how strained relations between Netflix and the Jeph Loeb run Marvel TV have become. A far cry from when their multi-series deal was first announced back in 2013 with big smiles and almost bigger plans.

The current state of affairs became painfully evident when the SVOD player abruptly pulled the plug on a third season of Luke Cage last month. One week after Iron Fist was pink slipped, that October 19 cancellation of Harlem’s Hero came after the nearly half scripts had been written for a Season 3 and a formal renewal had been considered a foregone conclusion.
Deadline.

Is Netflix pulling the plug, or is it a case of Disney/Marvel starting to circle the wagons for the release of their own streaming service?

Path of Exile on PlayStation 4 Release Delay

When we announced Path of Exile for PlayStation 4 earlier this month, we indicated we were aiming for a December release. Unfortunately, we have had to revise this to early February. We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience this causes, because we know there are many players looking forward to this release.

We underestimated the amount of work it would take to finish the certification process during the busy Christmas period. While we hope to have everything ready in January, we feel a lot more comfortable promising early February as a target release window. This will also give us time to work on game performance/frame rate, which we feel could be improved before release.

Again, we're very sorry about this. We understand that many PlayStation users were keen to play Betrayal over Christmas and have been eagerly awaiting release date news. We promise that Path of Exile will be awesome on PlayStation 4 when it is released early next year.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey 'Legacy of the First Blade' DLC Launches December 4
Nov 28, 2018 - 5:30 PM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Legacy of the First Blade, Episode 1, Available December 4

Today, Ubisoft announced the release dates for the episodes of the first post-launch story arc of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Legacy of the First Blade. The first episode, Hunted, will release December 4 across all available platforms. Throughout Hunted and the following two episodes, players will continue their grand Greek Odyssey to encounter Darius, the legend who was first to wield the Assassin’s Hidden Blade.

As the story of Hunted unfolds, players will discover whether Darius is friend or foe, while meeting new characters, engaging in gripping naval combat, fighting new and powerful enemies, and uncovering revelations about the Assassin’s Creed universe.

Legacy of the First Blade continues to bring players’ choice to the forefront through the relationships they build with colorful characters and the decisions they make along the way. In Legacy of the First Blade, players can also customise new equipment and master new special abilities as they fight their way across Greece, engaging in visceral battles on land and on sea to continue their Odyssey and become a true hero of legend.

After Hunted releases on December 4, the second episode, Shadow Heritage, and the third episode, Bloodline, will complete the first story arc in early 2019 across all platforms.

The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey post-launch plan is the biggest and most ambitious in the franchise, and the launch of Legacy of the First Blade is just the beginning for players who wish to progress further with new content in Ancient Greece. Season Pass owners will access two major episodic storylines, Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis. Players can dive into new episodes as they premiere, or experience the epic adventures in their entirety once all episodes are available. The Season Pass also includes Assassin’s Creed III Remastered and Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered, which will be released in March 2019.

Legacy of the First Blade can be purchased as part of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass, which is available from Ł29.99, or separately as a story arc, on December 4.

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan - Dev Diary #1: Designing the Ghost Ship

Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe have released the first development diary for their upcoming cinematic horror game ‘The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan’. This dev-diary focuses on the creation of one of the most important aspects of the game, the Ghost Ship itself.

In the first Dev-diary, the Supermassive Games team talk about everything from the authentic audio of the door latches, the way sound reverberates inside the ship to the concept and influences behind the creation of the ship. Every detail was designed in order to give players the most terrifying and atmospheric experience possible.

The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of stand-alone, cinematic horror games, designed to deliver a new and terrifying experience at regular intervals. Each game is unconnected and will feature a brand-new story, setting and a new cast of characters. In Man of Medan, four young Americans set sail on a diving trip, to find a rumored WWII wreck. As the day unfolds, and a storm rolls in, their trip soon changes into something much more sinister.

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan will launch in 2019 in both boxed and digital editions for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and PC with EFIG voiceovers.
