I was posting video game related news tidbits for a while, but it took too much time to put together and I eventually stopped around August of last year. However, I do not want Macavei Raul to be the only one posting regularly to the VGG news section, so I have decided to try this again but with a different format.

I will post every Sunday with a bullet point list of video game related news from that week. I thought it might also be worthwhile to borrow a little from BGG's "Geek Weekly" and feature an image and review here. I am thinking the top 3 most thumbed images and reviews from the week.




Video Game News:

Nights of Azure 2 was delayed to sometime later this year. No definitive date was given. The game was originally slated for December 22nd 2016.

NioH is receiving another demo despite being just three weeks away. Titled the Last Chance Trial, the demo runs through January 21st and the 22nd. Anyone who finishes the demo will get access to exclusive items in the full release of NioH.

God Wars: Future Past was given a release date of March 28 for North America and March 31 for Europe.

Last week the speedrunning video game charity marathon known as Awesome Games Done Quick managed to raise an astounding $2,216,243.30 from 43,368 donors for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

According to a Netflix representative, their streaming service will not be supported by the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo also confirmed that the Switch will not offer any streaming video services when it launches in March.

"All our efforts have gone toward making the Nintendo Switch system an amazing dedicated video game platform, so it will not support any video streaming services at launch. However, support for video streaming services is being considered for a future update."

Limbo and Inside developer PlayDead Studios teased their next game on Twitter:



Reviews of the Week
The top 3 most thumbed reviews from Jan 15 - Jan 21.

Quick Review of Adventure
Submitted by dommer2029:
Adventure was probably the main motivation for picking up the Flashback. The novel Ready Player One makes repeated references to Adventure - in particular to how it was the first game to have a hidden Easter Egg. I enjoyed the book quite a bit and wanted to take another look at the classic game.

A welcome change of pace to the speedrunner platformer genre
Submitted by wizcreations:
Most platformer games I have seen and played tend to focus on some combination of speedruns, high difficulty, and complex level design. Although Refunct does have an avid speedrunner community, the game breaks the norm of platformers and instead creates an experience anyone can play...

Not officially a boardgame....but
Submitted by Nappy:
John Tiller designed the Battleground series in the mid-90s, and although they are computer games, they are basically straight up wargames on a computer platform. Tiller made several battleground games covering Civil War battles, and four Napoleonic games.

We are approaching 40,000 video games in the database. As in the past (20k in 2011 and 30k in 2014), we will be handing out a special microbadge for a limited time to anyone who is present for game number 40k. Additionally there will be an exclusive microbadge given out to whomever submits game number 40k.

As of right now there are 37,721 games in the database. I will post updates here when we hit 38k, 39k and 40k.

mbmbmbmb
The 40k badges are still in the works.



Want to help us reach 40k, expand the database and earn yourself some GG in the process? Here are some great sources of missing games:

A look Back: 2016 in Video Gaming

I know it's late to be posting something like this (the holiday season set me back), but I did one last year and I would like to try and get one of these out every year. This is an unfinished piece, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to put it out anyway.




Overall it felt like there was more bad news in 2016 than good. Big budget games like Battleborn and Tom Clancy's The Division were commercial flops. Several of BioWare's lead writers left the company, Lionhead Studios was shut down and Disney cancelled their Disney Infinity line.

A large number of games were delayed until 2017:

Crackdown 3
For Honor
Gravity Rush 2
Halo Wars 2
Horizon: Zero Dawn
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Mass Effect: Andromeda
NieR: Automata
Persona 5
ScaleBound - Officially cancelled this month.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Others were delayed indefinitely:

Below
Dead Island 2
Dreams

A few were cancelled:

EverQuest Next
Fable Legends
Whore of the Orient

No Man's Sky caused a stir when it failed to live up to it's promises and the hype. The game was riddled with bugs, crashes, missing features and an ending that left a lot to be desired. The developer, Hello Games, was even investigated for false advertising. No Man's Sky wasn't the only indie game in hot water however. Adult furry game, Breeding Season had a Patreon that was earning $42,000 a month, until the game's artist up and left the project, taking 50% of the money and all the game's assets with him; something he was legally entitled to do, according to his contract.



The ORION Project was pulled from Steam after Activision accused them of stealing assets from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Developer Trek Industries openly apologized for the "oversight" and the game went back up after the assets were removed. The ORION Project was previously caught using assets from Unnatural Selection 2, Primal Carnage and Star Wars. The game has also undergone three to four name changes since its initial release back in July.



Trendy Entertainment sued ARK developer Studio Wildcard to the tune of 40 million, and Valve Corporation was sued for allowing underage gambling. The most ludicrous lawsuit this year though, was issued by the infamous "indie developer" Digital Homicide. Not only did they sue gaming journalist Jim Sterling for libel and slander, but one hundred of Steam's users as well. An action that subsequently got them [Digital Homicide] banned from Steam for "harassing Steam customers".



It's not all bad though. There were several new releases, such as DOOM and Overwatch that gamers couldn't get enough of, and several surprise game announcements that made fans very happy. The Last of Us Part II and Red Dead Redemption 2 among them.

2017 is also looking to have some great game releases in store:

Cuphead
Gravity Rush 2
Halo Wars 2
Horizon: Zero Dawn
Injustice 2
Little Nightmares
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Mass Effect: Andromeda
NieR: Automata
Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
NioH
