Warcraft 3: Blizzard Issues First Dev Update on Reforged
Other / 3. 2. 2020

Blizzard has finally issued a statement since launch responding to early complaints about the recently released Warcraft 3: Reforged. The developer says it will address several issues in future updates, some arriving as early this week, but other elements of the game like the cutscenes will remain as-is. “First off, we want to say we’re sorry to those of you who didn’t have the experience you wanted, and we’d like to share our plans for what’s coming next,” Blizzard says in its first developer update for Warcraft 3: Reforged since launch. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/01/29/warcraft-3-reforged-blizzcon-2018-vs-launch-2020-comparison”] The forum post from Warcraft community manager Randy “Kaivax” Jordan goes into detail about some of the ways Blizzard will update Warcraft 3: Reforged. First, there will be a patch later this week that will fix, among other things, the bug causing colors and shading issues in Classic Mode. The patch will also address portrait animations, audio bugs, UI fixes, and more. However, in regards to the controversial animated cutscenes, or lack thereof, Blizzard says that it wanted to keep the cutscenes true to the original game. “[T]he main takeaway is the campaigns tell one of the classic stories in Warcraft history, and want to preserve the…

Switch mech shooter Daemon X Machina is heading to PC next week
Other / 3. 2. 2020

PC players hankering for a spot of big stompy robot action are in luck; developer Marvelous has announced that previously Switch-exclusive mech shooter Daemon X Machina will be heading to Steam next week, on 13th February. Daemon X Machina casts players as mercenaries employed by the Orbital organisation, then sets them loose in huge Arsenal mechs, sliding and zooming across a vibrantly hued post-apocalyptic landscape (albeit restricted to a limited area each mission), blasting the bolts off vast machines driven by corrupted AIs known as the Immortals. Mechs are fully customisable with new weapons and upgrades, and it’s even possible to start tinkering with your player avatar – messing around with simple cosmetic enhancements or, if you prefer, subjecting them to massively invasive surgical procedures to receive body modifications that imbue certain perks but can have a major impact on their appearance.

Warcraft 3: Reforged players can now get an instant refund on Blizzard’s widely disliked game
Other / 3. 2. 2020

Blizzard is now offering an automatic refund for players who feel disappointed in the recently released Warcraft 3: Reforged. While Blizzard has yet to make an official statement on the matter, the company is currently offering instant refunds for the remastered edition of Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos through Battle.net. According to fans on the official subreddit, Blizzard support is granting players a refund regardless of how much time they spent in the game. One forummer, user krOnicLTD, played Warcraft 3: Reforged for more than five hours, and still got a refund without any problem. Other users have similarly said that refunds through the automated form are instant. Warcraft 3: Reforged launched to PC last week and has not been well-received by fans. The game’s main subreddit and Blizzard’s own forums are full of negative threads, and complaints from players who feel cheated – in part because of the quality of the finished game compared to what Blizzard showed off at the remaster’s reveal at Blizzcon 2018. While the final build has sharper art and updated models compared to the original, they don’t stack up to the 2018 reveal. In addition, custom campaigns created for the original aren’t compatible with…

The Wonderful 101 hits Kickstarter with campaign to bring remastered version to Switch, PS4 and PC
Other / 3. 2. 2020

Developer Platinum Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring a remastered version of its Wii U release The Wonderful 101 to other platforms. The Kickstarter campaign is aiming for a baseline funding goal of $50,000 to bring The Wonderful 101: Remastered to Nintendo Switch. Its stretch goal of $250,000 will see the game release to PC via Steam, while a further stretch goal of $500,000 will help bring the game to PS4. There is no stretch goal for an Xbox One version. Of course, this isn’t a total surprise. Rumours of a Kickstarter campaign were kicking around following the studio’s seemingly random tease last week, and seemed to heat up even more earlier today. “It has been a goal of Platinum Games to own and self-publish the IPs that we create. With your support, we hope that we can make this dream a reality and bring The Wonderful 101: Remastered to a wide variety of platforms and make The Wonderful 101 a part of everyone’s gaming history,” said Platinum Games in a statement. “This Kickstarter is our chance to UNITE UP, take destiny into our own hands, and bring the best version of The Wonderful 101 to everyone.” The…
