Game News: Mass Effect: New Earth Ride and Project Spark Comes to an End

Foreboding
United States

Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to. –Alfred A. Montapert

Mass Effect: New Earth:

Mass Effect: New Earth is a "4D Holographic" ride at the amusement park "California’s Great America" in Santa Clara, California. Like other 4D rides, riders wear 3D glasses and sit in seats that move, spray water, scents, and so on to simulate the feel of the environments and actions taking place on screen.

The story is narrated by Commander Shepard's biggest fan, Conrad Verner, who somehow managed to become captain of a tourist ship going to Terra Nova via Mass Relay. There is a ship crash, Reaper attack, Rachni encounter, the beloved Normandy and characters Garrus and Urdnot Wrex also make an appearance.

The full ride can be seen here.



Nintendo Claim on Minecraft Videos:

Youtubers who posted Minecraft videos that used the free Super Mario Mash-Up Pack were struck with a copyright claim by Nintendo. The company is well known for issuing take-down notices and even started up a Partners Program last year that permits participating users to post videos containing Nintendo games in exchange for a slice of the ad revenue. The problem is that Nintendo had assured 4J Studios, the developers of the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack, that this wouldn't happen, but went and did it anyway. 4J Studios is currently speaking with Nintendo on the matter.



Another False Claim:

Fox aired the new Family Guy episode "Run, Chris, Run" and in that episode they can be seen playing the game Double Dribble on the NES. It turns out the gamplay footage seen in that episode was actually stolen from a YouTuber called Switched who uploaded the original Double Dribble gamplay video to YouTube back in 2009. A few hours after the "Run, Chris, Run" episode aired Fox filed a copyright claim on the original gamplay video and YouTube took Switched's video down. The video has since gone back up and Fox issued an apology.

Project Spark Ends:

After just two years running, Project Spark is scheduled to shut down it's online services on August 12 and the title has already been removed from the Xbox Marketplace.



New BioWare IP:

BioWare slightly teased their new secret IP by saying they "revealed" it at the last Game Developers Conference (GDC) but nobody took notice. There has been no official announcement and BioWare is staying tight lipped.




Blood and Wine:

Blood and Wine received a launch trailer.



Ori and the Blind Forest Physical Release:

Nordic Games has partnered with Moon Studios and Microsoft Game Studios to publish a Standard and Limited retail edition of Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition. The Definitive Edition has new areas, abilities, environments, more story sequences, multiple difficulty modes, and fast travel between areas. Additionally, they will be partnering up with stores across the US to make the physical release available for Xbox One. Both editions will release on June 14th.

Standard Edition ($19.99) Contents:

*Premium Packaging
*Quick-Start Guide
*Game
*A3 Poster

Limited Edition ($29.99) Contents:

*Steel Box
*Quick-Start Guide
*Game
*Audio-CD OST
*2 Postcards
*2 Double-Sided A3 Posters



New Games:

Liyla & the Shadows of War is a very simple game, based on actual events of war in Gaza. The game uses a silhouette aesthetic.



The Mims are an alien race who are forced to crash-land on different planets. Your task is to get their new colonies up and running and ultimately rebuild their spaceship.

- Official Website



Not video game related, but a nine-year-old boy by the name of Bryce had his binder of Pokémon cards ripped from his hands by a kid who quickly fled the scene. Officers James Grotenrath and Ken Kirk came by to take a report. They eventually found the boy who stole the cards, but some were still missing. Officer Grotenrath dug through his closet to retrieve his old collection of Pokemon cards which he gave to Bryce, saying "I would be heartbroken too if my cards were taken from me."

Wearable Proto Man Helmet:

You may remember the Wearable Mega Man Helmet from earlier this year. Well fans demanded one for Proto Man and Capcom responded with a 1:1 wearable replica. Just like the Mega Man helmet this one features a chrome sheen, LED lights on the ear mounts, air vents on the reverse side, and see-through visor. Additionally, those who purchase the helmet through the Capcom Store will receive an authentic Proto Man scarf. It retails for $160 with a release slated for Winter 2016.



Battlefield 1 Revealed:

Battlefield 1 was announced with a release date of October 21st, 2016 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.



Dishonored 2 Release Date:

Dishonored 2 received a release date of November 11, 2016.



Star Fox Zero Sales at 5th Place:

Star Fox Zero (with Guard included) took 5th place in Japanese retail sales with 17,114 units sold. This makes Star Fox Zero the worst selling Star Fox game in terms of week one sales. On it's own Zero sold 8,135 units, putting it at 4th place behind two One Piece fighting games and the Yo-kai Watch spin-off, Yo-kai Sangokushi.



New Charity:

Following in the footsteps of Child’s Play and Awesome Games Done Quick, Utah based speedrunners have formed a new charitable event called RPG Limit Break. During the six day event gamers from around the US and Canada attempt to complete role playing games as quickly as possible to raise money for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

Their schedule is available now and includes a normal dash through Half-Minute Hero 2 and an all photo run of EarthBound. The group hopes to raise $50,000 USD for NAMI by the end of May 14th. Those who pledge will be put into a raffle, either for items like Mario and Luigi plushies or to choose elements for future runs. The full event can be seen on their Twitch channel.



Pokémon Sun and Moon Trailer:

Pokémon Sun and Moon got a new starter Pokémon trailer. The game(s) are set to release November 18, 2016.



Civilization VI:

Civilization VI was announced for October 21, 2016 on PC.



No More Disney Infinity:

Disney has decided to exit the video game scene, cancelling the Disney Infinity franchise as well as shutting down Avalanche Software resulting in the loss of around 300 jobs. The reason for the decision was a lack of profits believe it or not. This will not impact Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts series or EA’s ownership of the Star Wars license.



Infinite Dislikes:

The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer debuted last Monday and has since garnered 1,927,078 dislikes, making it one of the most disliked videos on YouTube.

Most of the complaints were aimed at the space travel, battles on distant planets, and the inability to purchase the Call of Duty 4 remaster on its own.



Shenmue I & II Remaster:

It has been hinted by SEGA that they are willing to consider a Shenmue I and II remaster, saying:

"It’s not as simple as porting the games to current platforms as we will need to ensure that any HD remaster lives up to the quality of the original titles. And with games as immersive as Shenmue I and II, there are further complications from licensed products that were included in the original games. That said, we’d love to do it and are currently investigating how to make it a reality."

Skip to 1:55 for Shenmue part.

PAX East 2016

The Penny Arcade Expo or PAX for short, is a series of gaming festivals held within and outside the United States of America. It was created by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, the authors of the Penny Arcade webcomic back in 2004. Featured events include game-culture inspired concerts, panels, exhibitor booths from both independent and major game developers and publishers, tabletop game tournaments, and video game freeplay areas.

PAX East 2016 has come and gone and while the Penny Arcade Expo may not be as big as E3 or Gamescom a number of interesting discussions and announcements were made at the event.

Banner Saga 3 Discussed:

The makers of the Banner Saga expressed a desire to continue the series saying "we would like to flesh [the story] out for a long time." and "The longer we get to do this, the more of the world we'll see." John Watson explained that the Banner Saga universe is rife with narrative opportunities and a "very fertile ground for storytelling."

Jorgensen and Watson also specifically mentioned The Banner Saga 3 at the panel but did not give details aside from it being "stranger and stranger," diving deeper into the "weirdness of Norse mythology."



Original Tomb Raider Music Album:

Original Tomb Raider composer Nathan McCree revealed a package called "Tomb Raider Suite" featuring new recordings of the music from the first three games to be released sometime later this year. Crystal Dynamics elaborated that it would include the classic songs as well as extensions and variations of the original tracks.

The album is expected to be about 60-80 minutes long and will be performed by an orchestra at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in England. A live performance of the music will also be held later this year and the entire process of recording the music will be filmed for a documentary to air on TV.



Borderlands 3 Teased:

CEO of Gearbox Software Randy Pitchford teased the next Borderlands game, starting off by saying "Obviously, there is going to be another Borderlands." Art director of Borderlands 2 and the recently released Battleborn, Scott Kester will be working on the new game. Mikey Neumann who wrote the first Borderlands will be writing the next installment. Randy Pitchford warned against calling the next title Borderlands 3 however, saying "We don't even know if we're going to call it that."



Overwatch Vehicles:

To promote their new game Blizzard covered vehicles in Overwatch decals for the PAX East event. The vehicles included Tracer (Lamborghini Aventador), Soldier 76 (Ford F650 Supertruck), and D.va (Polaris Slingshot).



One of the vehicles, Soldier 76 the Ford F650 Supertruck ended up hitting the side of a car outside the PAX convention center. No one was hurt but the director of Battleborn, Randy Pitchford witnessed the event:




Battleborn Coming to Rock Band 4:

As part of a DLC pack the Battleborn characters Thorn and Miko will be playable in Rock Band 4.

New Games:

Torn Banner Studios the developers of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare announced their newest game entitled Mirage: Arcane Warfare. It is described as a team-based first person shooter with an Arabian fantasy flair.



The first title out of Central Africa is an African fantasy action RPG called Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan. The game has been in development for over a decade with the team behind it facing regular power outages and water shortages during a dry season.



The Adult Swim booth featured many games, one of which was Rain World. The goal is to survive as long as you can as some sort of weasel-slug hybrid creature.



Assault Suit Leynos was originally planned as an Asian only release for the PlayStation 4 and PC platforms but is now being localized for a western release.

Chaos Warriors is No Longer A Pre-Order Bonus:

Creative Assembly, developers of Total War: Warhammer had originally intended for the "Chaos Warriors" DLC to be a pre-order bonus. This would have made the game's Chaos race available only to those who purchased the game ahead of launch or those who paid to unlock them afterwards.

Their fan-base responded with 50,000 dislikes on the Chaos Warriors DLC announcement trailer. Creative Assembly has since announced that the DLC will no loner be gated behind pre-orders and is now available to everyone for free.



Modern Warfare Remastered Cannot Be Purchased On It's Own:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered won't be sold separately, according to the game's publisher. To get it you will need to purchase the Legacy ($79.99), Legacy Pro ($99.99), or Digital Deluxe edition ($119.99) of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.



Blackroom KickStarter Cancelled:

Doom creators John Romero and Adrian Carmack have cancelled their days-old Kickstarter campaign for the game Blackroom in order to focus on developing a playable demo. Their company Night Work Games was seeking $700,000 and had raised $131,052 within the first few days.

Games that were locked include Grand Theft Auto V, Fallout 4, Far Cry: Primal, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Battlefield Hardline, FIFA 2016 and many more. Amazon has since revoked the decision and made them available for purchase by those without a Prime subscription once more.

Arrests in StarCraft 2 Match-Fixing:

Several brokers, financial backers, and two top StarCraft 2 players (Lee "Life" Seung Hyun & Bung "Bbyong" Woo Yong) have been indicted and arrested by South Korean authorities after a match-fixing investigation.

"Life" was paid ₩70,000,000 (roughly $60,000) to intentionally lose two matches in May 2015 and "Bbyong" received the equivalent of $26,000 to loose a match in January of this year. Former StarCraft pro, Sun "Enough" Jun Mo is accused of being Life's benefactor and profiting from bets on the fixed match.

Paradox Interactive has announced that their free-to-play title Magicka: Wizard Wars will no longer be playable effective July 21, 2016.
