Terminator T-800 now featuring in Mortal Kombat 11.

As I said in the YT comments section: I know it's meant to be over-the-top... but it's just *SOOOOO* over-the-top, it becomes ludicrous. Half of these "normal" hits are like fatalities from the earlier games.

Fortnite: Map blown up and replaced with black hole
 
A huge asteroid has blown up the map in Fortnite - to mark the end of season 10.
 
Fans have been left unable to play the game, which has been replaced by a black hole.
 
Fortnite has also deleted all of its tweets and is simply running a livestream of the black hole on Twitter - which has had more than 290,000 likes.
 
Forbes' gaming writer Paul Tassi described the event as "the end of an era".

Fortnite pro Jarvis banned for using cheat software
 
More than four million people have watched a video in which a pro Fortnite player makes an emotional appeal to have a permanent ban lifted.
 
Jarvis Khattri was banned for using cheating software while playing the popular game.
 
Fortnite creator Epic imposed the ban even though Mr Khattri used the software on a game account separate to the one he uses to compete and stream.
 
[...]
 
The software Mr Khattri used is known as an aimbot, which helps players land shots on opposing characters.

China fears young people are addicted to video games. Now it's imposing a curfew
 
Updated 0343 GMT (1143 HKT) November 7, 2019
 
Hong Kong (CNN)China has announced a curfew on online gaming for minors among new measures aimed at curbing video game addiction.
 
The official government guidelines will be applied to all online gaming platforms operating in the country, mostly notably Tencent, the world's biggest gaming company.
 
Under the new rules, gamers aged under 18 will be banned from playing online games between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. On weekdays, minors can only play for 90 minutes, while they may play up to three hours per day on weekends and public holidays.
 
The guidelines also place restrictions on the amount of money minors can transfer to their online gaming accounts. Gamers aged between eight and 16 years old can only top up 200 yuan ($29) per month, while the maximum amount for those between 16 and 18 will be 400 yuan ($57).
 
China is the world's largest gaming market, accounting for a quarter of global revenue, according to market research firm Newzoo. It expected China's total gaming revenue to reach $38 billion in 2018.

I'm currently playing through A Plague Tale and it's totally incredible – certainly deserving of a place in GameSpot's top 10.

 

Also, think I might re-install Cities: Skylines, which I played (briefly) back in early 2017, and really want to get back into.

 

Another game I want to start is Cell to Singularity, which was recommended by somebody on here (10 year march?).

 

What are the rest of you playing? Am I the only one who posts in this thread lol.

A good decision. I'd much, much rather they got the game right, and in the best possible state, not rushed and broken.

Cyberpunk 2077 delayed to September

Jan 16, 2020

Cyberpunk 2077, the highly anticipated new role-playing game from the studio behind the Witcher series, has been delayed. The game was previously expected on April 16; now it won’t launch until Sept. 17, five months later.

“We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done,” said Marcin Iwinski and Adam Badowski, co-founder and head of studio at developer CD Projekt Red, respectively, in a statement on Twitter. “Night City is massive — full of stories, content and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing and polishing. We want Cyberpunk 2077 to be our crowning achievement for this generation and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect.”

Does anybody else watch video game movies? Video games have gotten so good to a point narratively where watching the cut scenes stringed together makes for a really good story akin to watching a good film. I used to this before I bought a PS4 where I watched God of War 4 and RDR2 like a movie and because of that I bought the games later. Now I don't have the time to play games anymore so I've fallen back on them.

 

Lately I've wanted to get caught up on MachineGames' Wolfenstein, and I have to say that compared to the rest it's by far one of the greatest video game film I've watched. The others sort of conflict with their gameplay in terms of pacing. For example in RDR2 the shootouts were always tedious when they interacted with the story, or in God of War 4 where I think the "Editor", i.e. the youtube uploader poorly paced the puzzles and navigation of the film, but also the story is just so large and expository it's impossible to make a cohesive single film out of it.

 

But this Wolfenstein: The New Order film is amazing. Almost every scene I've watched so far makes sense. They're context in everything that happens. The guy doesn't skip any crucial action. The action is always on pace and on point. The cuts aren't done too jarring like with bad fades or cuts in the middle of dialogue. (So far, I'm still watching it so I may put my foot in my mouth)

https://youtu.be/TCYzBmsPr9A

 

I have to say, I'm really excited about this kind of art form where anybody can learn to edit their games into a film, but also "act" as the player. Other factors of course include the game and story itself, those are crucial as hell. It's pretty much the content of the film, but the art of it is turning a video game's story and turning it into a good film despite the obstacles.

 

An old one that I've found was the Skyrim fan movie (https://youtu.be/YyHZn_nC3kc) where a guy tried to get over Skyrim's clunky first/3rd person camera and dialogue system to make the film. The guy doesn't seem like an experienced voice actor which holds it back, but it's a valiant effort. The additional elements he adds like the character's backstory (and becoming less like a video game film than an animated film made with a video game) is something I'd extend an olive branch for because Skyrim's whole thing with the dragonborn is to make it your own. Still god damn, just look at this action sequence. https://youtu.be/blZxPPApXlw?t=541 If anybody has played skyrim before, you should know how impressive getting shots like this are.

I used to watch video game movies quite a bit last decade. Some gems I remember were the Arkham games, where someone edited in certain music from other Batman media (it still fit amazingly well, to the point you'd think it was always there) for certain scenes seamlessly. Uncharted series also lent itself very well to a movie formula, and I've seen some really damn good Assassin's Creed & God of War trilogy movie takes. 

 

Getting the mix right between adequate game-play and not skipping over the important parts is a must. I'm pretty sure I've seen the above Wolfenstein game movie. It was really good, strangely made me much more interested for Man in the High Castle which dealt with a similar plot when it premiered. 

 

I think game movies are great when you are on a budget and pressed for time when it comes to normal gaming. @Outlook here's a fun playlist to try, if you haven't already  :) https://www.youtube....4DCE4EF74C8A142

 

Of course, at times I will not allow myself to watch a "game movie" because I'd rather play it first. Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be too damn good to spoil, but with the way they're making it, watching a game movie of that would likely be wildly different due to how you can handle missions/jobs in many different scenarios.
