Another developer delays its December game to avoid getting crushed by Cyberpunk
Other / 31. 10. 2020

Another developer has delayed its planned December game to avoid getting crushed by Cyberpunk. When CD Projekt delayed Cyberpunk to 10th December to sort out issues with the current-gen version of the game, Path of Exile developer Grinding Gear Games moved its action RPG’s next big expansion from 11th December to January 2021. Now, Rockfish Games has followed suit, delaying space looter shooter Everspace 2’s early access launch from mid-December to January 2021 to avoid the behemoth that is Cyberpunk. Read more

Should you wait for next-gen to play Watch Dogs: Legion?
Other / 31. 10. 2020

Have we reached that time in the console generation where the machines start to show their limits – when developers are eagerly looking forward to the next generation? Back in 2013, prior to the release of Xbox One and PlayStation 4, titles emerged that clearly pushed too far, often resulting in poor performance. There’s a decent argument that this is the case for Watch Dogs – at least on the standard vanilla Xbox One S. It’s a technologically ambitious game that clearly has some performance issues, even with the arrival of a new patch. So, to what extent does the PlayStation 4 improve matters and can the enhanced machines clear up the issues? Or is this game so ambitious, we should wait to play it on PS5 and Xbox Series X? For developer Ubisoft Toronto, delivering a game this complex across so many different systems takes a careful balancing act. Every Watch Dogs title to date, going back to the 2014 original, has evolved with more complex cities, a broadening of its ideas to show futuristic versions of Chicago, San Francisco, and now London. Legion realises the series’ most exciting backdrop so far here – a great city jam-packed full…

Hitman 3 requires the PS4 version to play on PSVR – even on PS5
Other / 31. 10. 2020

Hitman 3 requires the PlayStation 4 version to play on PSVR – even on PlayStation 5, it has been revealed. It’s a similar deal with No Man’s Sky, UploadVR reports. It means if you buy the PS5 versions of Hitman 3 or No Man’s Sky, you don’t get access to either game’s PSVR support in the PS4 versions. This is because PSVR works as a backwards compatible device. Sony told UploadVR it has yet to announce PS5 titles for PSVR. Read more

The Bizarre Story Behind an Iconic Resident Evil Sound Effect
Other / 31. 10. 2020

What if I told you that I’d been hearing a single sound, everywhere, for 22 years? I’ve heard it in countless movies, tons of television shows, video games and even pop music. I can almost guarantee that you have too. It’s a short, 3 second sound effect of something that’s really quite inoffensive, but still manages to register with me every time I hear it. It’s very simple, and there are a lot of sounds like it, but it cuts through the noise of anything I’m watching or listening to whenever it plays and I’ve become obsessed with it. Dale Driver · Resident Evil 2 – Lab Door Sound Effect It’s most often used as the effect of a futuristic lab door opening. I don’t know why, but for decades it’s been burrowed into my brain. This innocuous noise has been in and around practically everything I enjoy and, every time it plays, it forces two simple questions into my brain: How was it made, and who made it? It’s been 22 years now, it’s time to get those answers. It’s hard to pinpoint when I first started noticing this sound effect, but as an educated guess I want to…
