Troubles for GameStop continues as all the Massachusetts stores closed.

City of Boston inspectional services department dropped by the Dorchester store and issued a nuisance order and had it closed.

That decision forced GameStop to close the rest of their Mass. locations too.

Supposedly this source was recently revealed to be a fraud and/or someone who takes stuff from other leakers and claims it as his own.

Newest alleged rumor spreading online from this source is the next RE game being called Resident Evil 8, is entirely played in a first-person perspective, and was originally meant to be RE Revelations 3 before Capcom changed development due to game testers reception. Also claimed the game's development was recently finished.

Seems Microsoft is backing away from doing traditional press conferences at E3.

This year's conference being digital is due to coronavirus issues but next year's E3 press conference is also currently scheduled to be a digital one. Also their Microsoft Theater location won't be reopened for next year's E3.

That's Microsoft's plan for this E3, but it's apparently already the plan for next E3 too. In an email to Microsoft's MVPs about the scheduling of next year's MVP Summit, Microsoft reveals that it "has made the decision to transition all external and internal events to a digital-first experience through July 2021." (The Microsoft MVP program is a group of "Most Valuable Professionals" -- people who aren't Microsoft employees, but are recognized as community ambassadors who share valuable technical expertise about specific Microsoft products.)

Unless something changes, this means Xbox is preemptively no-showing E3 2021 (if E3 2021 even happens, that is). The big splashy press conference will presumably be replaced by a pre-recorded presentation, a la the monthly Inside Xbox show. Similarly, the annual Xbox Showcase in the Microsoft Theater adjacent to E3 won't take place. Microsoft is keeping its employees grounded for 15 months minimum, and that puts the kibosh on a physical presence at any convention.

Good Afternoon Dr. Ave,

I am currently working on an estimate for a large project in North Carolina. This is probably the 8th project I've done a takeoff for in the past 72 hours and I am drowning in work (alas, not pussy) because the complete fucking retards that oversee our company decided to lay off the only other employee in my department and we were already 7 weeks behind schedule. So, going peachy. At least I have Terraria to look forward to.

Kind Regards,

Capcom is currently rumored to be working on a remake of Resident Evil 4 with M-Two studio as the developer.

The remake is also rumored to be arriving in 2022.

M-Two, founded just last year by PlatinumGames' former president Tatsuya Minami, provided support work on recent release Resident Evil 3, but are expected to be leading the charge on Resident Evil 4. Shinji Mikami, co-creator of the franchise, is reportedly not working on the project, but has given it his blessing, offering "informal advice" on the game's direction.

4 is the one that doesn't need a remake. It's still the peak of the series. Just remaster it with better graphics/sound and leave the guts of the game the same.

I dunno, seems like it's pretty legit. Part of it is stemming from the failure that was 2k20 and needing more time to make a good game again to rectify that shit show. Another reason being stated is that with the coronavirus stuff going on that they can't get the motion capture work done for this years potential installment. I can def see them taking off for a year.

However there apparently will still be a WWE game of some sort this year. Its said to not be a wrestling simulation though and a "new type of experience". Prob another mobile game.

According to Kotaku, a new game in the Grand Theft Auto series is currently in development.

Unlike Rockstar's recent games, development on this one is smaller in scope due to recent changes made by the company to improve the work environment and well-being of their staff.

Seems its going to be something more in the vein of GTA Online in the sense of having a sizeable base content at launch and then gets beefed up with content updates over time for post-launch support.

Quote:
Originally Posted by Destuctoid
Today, Kotaku published an investigative study into the ways that the culture at Rockstar is changing. Kotaku interviewed 15 anonymous current or recently-departed Rockstar employees. The takeaway is that Rockstar seems to be slowly shifting its ways for the better. Through flexible work schedules, improved management leadership training, and better lines of communication, employees seem to genuinely believe that the developer is breaking away from the mandatory overtime/crunch habits and problematic culture that it had become known for within the professional video game community.

Nestled inside the report is the not-so-stunning revelation that Rockstar is in early development of the next Grand Theft Auto game. However, Rockstar management is said to be applying its reformed approach to the entire structure of GTA 6 (or whatever it may be called). Rather than creating a gigantic game for launch, the plan is to initially ship something that's "moderately-sized," and to add to it through regular updates over time. The idea is that this will alleviate crunch and overworking by spreading the development period over a longer span. Although, as Kotaku notes, "moderately-sized" for a developer as big as Rockstar and a project as important as GTA will still be quite large.

This year's Gamescom joins the list of gaming events and conventions cancelled due to the coronavirus.

Yesterday the German government issued a new ban on large public gatherings that is active until August 31st. That ended up affecting Gamescom since this year's convention was planned to take place from August 25-29.

Even though a physical convention can't be held, Gamescom officials are currently working on plans to hold this year's event as a digital one if possible.

Based on some estimated sales numbers, Animal Crossing New Horizons broke the all-time launch month record for digital sales at around 5 million copies sold.

Previous record was held by Call of Duty Black Ops III for a console game.

According to the number-crunchers over at SuperData, Animal Crossing: New Horizons sold an estimated five million digital copies in its launch month of March. This would not only make it the best-selling console game of the month, but also takes the record for best first-month digital sales for a console game, beating out previous record-holder Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Obviously, New Horizons released under particularly grim circumstances, as the ongoing COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic has seen stores shut their doors and a global community ordered to stay at home. This undoubtedly is part of the reason why the title has had such a huge sales spike in regards to its digital release. But regardless, it's clear that New Horizons would have seen the same phenomenal success under normal circumstances, even though the ratio of physical-to-digital sales might read differently.

They are definitely dying. Holiday sales were down nearly 20% YoY and they are treating 2020 as a "transitional year" with the plan to close another 350 stores in the US alone. They have went on record stating that without any type of new hardware sales, they will shutter even further.

* Apparently gameplay footage and the entire story of Last of Us 2 got spoiled online which was why it was also trending high on Twitter. Supposedly some have been spoiling the game as revenge for what they claim is just a game with a SJW agenda and/or being too political aka exposes their own bigoted views on social issues.

* Despite E3 not taking place this year, PC Game announced that they will be still holding their E3 press conference event on June 6th.
https://www.pcgamer.com/the-pc-gamin...return-june-6/

* Update to Nintendo suffering a major hacking attack news as the company recently confirmed around 160k Nintendo Network accounts were compromised and recommend all account members to enable 2-factor authentication and reset their passwords. In terms of what was compromised, personal info was confirmed to have been affected but not financial-related info.

I've been hearing that the leak was internal protest of work conditions which were widely reported about a year ago. If some anti-progressive troll wanted to deal a blow to production I'm not sure even they'd be able to get their hands on such sensitive footage straight from the source.

I have Odyssey, but I've put less than 4 hours into the game. It seems like it will be really good, but was like a copy and paste of Odyssey.


I love Viking lore and the setting has me interested. They need to tone it down and mix it up a bit. It'd be kinda cool if they introduced some co-op missions for "Viking Raids" or something similar.

Assassins Creed Valhalla info below. Putting in tags in the event anyone is concerned about any "spoilers" though there really aren't any narrative spoilers in the list, just gameplay stuff.


SPOILER: show
  1. Ubisoft on Twitter confirmed First Official Gameplay Reveal Trailer to be on 7th of May at Xbox Event. Source: https://twitter.com/assassinscreed/s...887257600?s=20
  2. The Lead Writer for AC:Revelations, Blackflag and Consultant on Origins Darby McDevitt is in charge of narrative and writing on this game (If you don't know who he is, he's awesome).
  3. Those that worry about narrative Darby McDevitt said the dialogue choices are all going to be much more streamlined so that each choice is more in line with the Eivors personality and context unlike Odyssey where option 1= Laugh 2=Angry 3=Cocky instead it would focus on making sure whatever choice your making would be something Eivor would actually say to make sure protagonist has a solid coherent personality. Source: https://www.gamespot.com/articles/as.../1100-6476661/
  4. They said beginning of the game you will be in Norway which will show how bad and horrible it is to continue to live there due to war and lack of resources and then go off to England or more accurately the 4 Kingdoms of England at the time and be able to go back to Norway again whenever you want but majority of the game will be in England and is supposedly huge. Source: Trailer with commentary by Creative Director and Narrative Director: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_nb_YECQoQ
  5. Ashraf Ismail is Creative Director for Valhalla, he was also Director on Black Flag and Origins which instils confidence.
  6. Use of Hidden Blade is Back! Although you get it a little bit later in game like AC2
  7. Inclusion of Mini-Games is back Fishing, Drinking games and Rap Battles? lol
  8. It seems you will be able to Skin your Raven? As shown by a foreign game shop on twitter that you get a Raven Skin with the "Drakkar" Edition. Source: https://twitter.com/bol_com_games/st...081506816?s=20
  9. Cloak/Hood will be in the game and you can choose to bring it up or down.
  10. JorRaptor has confirmed Social Stealth will be in the game but it will have a unique twist. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0d0V...ature=youtu.be
  11. Eivor is pronounced “Ā-vōr.”
  12. You can choose whether your Eivor is male or female.
  13. Writer says they have come up with a way to explain the gender choice in a clever way.
  14. The Writer also confirmed Both Male & Female are canon choices. How that actually works we'll have to wait and see. Source: https://twitter.com/KnightMadness/st...253067777?s=20
  15. In terms of Mythology the writer said they wanted to take a grounded approach probably meaning similar to the base game of Origins whereby The Gods were a real religion this culture believed and was prevalent in their everyday life so to ignore it would be very inaccurate, with this one only time will tell how tame or crazy they decide to go with it. Source https://www.gamespot.com/articles/as.../1100-6476661/
  16. When asked what writer thinks about God of War and how Valhalla will differentiate itself the writer said in a nutshell God of War's main selling point is the fantasy elements of being able to go and punch another god in the fate and travel to fantasy environments where is Valhalla aims to be a much more grounded approach as he says he doesn't believe there's ever been a viking game that's tried to be the ultimate grounded viking fantasy and instead all have focused on the mythology mainly.
  17. Customization options let you change Eivor’s hair, beard, clothing, war paint, and more.
  18. The game takes place in Norway and England.
  19. At the time England was split into 4 Divided Kingdoms East-Anglia, Mercia, Northumbria and Wessex
  20. England has three major cities to visit: London, Winchester, and Jórvík (York) while inc. other towns.
  21. You can dual-wield almost any combination of weapons including Dual Shields.
  22. Every piece of gear is unique.
  23. Gear can be upgraded and customized, and you can use the same equipment from beginning to end if you want to.
  24. You earn new abilities through a system mechanically similar to a skill tree.
  25. Ability to throw axes just like Eivor does in the trailer is in the game as a skill confirmed.
  26. What you can accomplish is more about gear and skills, not character levels.
  27. Words the team have used to describe combat include “brutal,” “crunchy,” and “weighty.” They have said they put it alot of time in making sure there is a real sense of weight and impact during close combat which is awesome especially compared to Odyssey which was opposite.
  28. Combat system seems to be somewhat revamped allowing to bash, dismember and decapitate enemies.
  29. The team is putting extra effort toward drastically increasing enemy variety to keep encounters surprising over a very long game.
  30. Ashraf Ismail Creative Director said Enemies will have weak points hinting at certain skills being required to beat them which could tie into how their going to avoid traditional level gating areas by having them tied to certain abilities. (Need more time to confirm details but if true sounds good).
  31. When asked if features like Mercenary system from Odyssey is there or improved he just said a vague statement about that there are many systems they have improved.
  32. You have a longship you use to go on raids.
  33. Your longship has a crew, including warriors you can customize.
  34. Assaults are big setpiece moments. They are different from raids, and involve attacks on large fortifications.
  35. You build a settlement that serves as your base.
  36. You upgrade buildings in your base which unlock mechanics e.g. Blacksmith, Tatooist etc
  37. Your clan and others you recruit live in your settlement.
  38. People you recruit in the world can be taken with you as your team/ raid party & customised.
  39. Settlement Affects world & characters/ story "It's at the centre of our quests and the centre of the decisions you make. We want players to see the consequences of their actions." Big story arcs will begin and end here, the impact of your decisions rippling through your growing community. You'll see the effects of alliances - such as weddings to forge relationships between clans - and the consequences of "harsh choices you have to face". It's also where you'll see some of the game's romances play out (if you choose to indulge in those)".
  40. Yes Romance Options are coming back.
  41. Raven will be the new Eagle Equivalent Companion but will have new abilities and have confirmed this mechanic and exploration to be less UI Heavy and more rewarding e.g. if you notice a distraction somewhere it's probably because there's some content there.
  42. Naval Battles scaled down compared to Origins/Odyssey no sitting in boat firing cannons etc as Vikings just didn't do that, instead it will be used as the fastest mode of travel via waterways etc
  43. Co-Op is out of the question, it is confirmed Valhalla is Single Player Only however on the official Ubisoft AC:Valhalla Website it says the following; Share your custom Raider - Recruit mercenary Vikings designed by other players or create and customise your own to share online. Sit back and reap the rewards when they fight alongside your friends in their game worlds. Source: https://www.ubisoft.com/en-gb/game/a...creed/valhalla
  44. Hidden Ones and Order of Ancients (a.k.a. Assassins and Templars) are in the game.
  45. At some point, Eivor meets Assassins, works alongside them, and uses a hidden blade.
  46. King Aelfred of Wessex (later known as Alfred the Great) is a villain figure in trailer but Writer says Both the Vikings and Certain Figures like King Alfred will be a lot more nuanced.
  47. Layla’s story in the present day continues.
  48. Ubisoft Montreal is leading development on Valhalla. The studio’s last two Assassin’s Creed games were Origins and Black Flag.
  49. 14 other Ubisoft Studios are supporting Valhalla’s development, along with external partner Sperasoft. Yes 14 STUDIOS! It's crazy.
  50. Valhalla is a cross-gen game, coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X alongside PS4 and Xbox One as well as on PC but only so far showing as Epic Game Store and UPlay.
  51. Valhalla will also support ‘Smart Delivery’ on Xbox, meaning you can buy the game once and have access to both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions. Source: https://www.ign.com/articles/assassi...-xbox-series-x
  52. The game will release during the 2020 holiday season.
