Allison Road Kickstarter Cancelled, But Team17 Agree To Publishing Deal

Written by Neil Soutter on 13 October 2015 at 12:45

P.T.-inspired Allison Road went up on Kickstarter a few weeks ago, and much to our dismay it was pulled down before the end of funding. Luckily there was nothing nefarious going on behind the scenes. Rather the Allison Road development studio had agreed a publishing deal with the revitalised Worms creators at Team17.

Allison Road looked as if it was well on its way to succeeding its funding goal, but the team instead chose to publish with Team17. "We have decided to withdraw the Kickstarter campaign to allow us to commit 100% to an opportunity that will give us the chance as a team to create the best game possible," wrote Lilith in the final Kickstarter update. "For us it’s an incredible opportunity to be part of a label that looks after not only such a massive gaming franchise, but also supports developers like Playtonic, Mouldy Toof and many others."

EA Reveal 50 Dollar Season Pass For Star Wars Battlefront - 140 USD For Ultimate Edition

Written by Joffy S on 13 October 2015 at 11:30

As surely as Tatooine has three moons, it was stunning obviously EA would announce a Season Pass for Star Wars Battlefront. It’s a trap, Admiral Ackbar would warn us, and he’s probably right, the wise old squidman he is.

As you’d expect from a DICE season pass, it’s not going to be cheap either. The Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass runs for $50, and that will net you access to four planned DLC packs. The eagle-eyed among you may note the previous Premium Passes have stretched to five expansions but this has been trimmed back to four; both for Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield Hardline.

Firewatch Catches Ablaze On February 9 2016 For PC And PS4

Written by Stuart Thomas on 13 October 2015 at 10:17

Campo Santo, a new studio comprised of the talent from the original season of The Walking Dead, Bioshock 2 and Mark of the Ninja, has announced its upcoming first-person adventure game Firewatch will be launching on February 9th, 2016, for PC and PlayStation 4.

Appropriately enough, Firewatch is a game about watching fires. It’s set within the forests of Wyoming over the course of an evening, with players taking on the role of a resident park ranger. Suffice to say, it looks as if there’s plenty more to this countryside trek than meets the eye, with more than a hint of menace lurking beneath its sun-dappled surface. [More]

GD Live Nibbles: Best PC Game Client - Origin Vs Uplay Vs Steam

Written by Felix Nova on 12 October 2015 at 20:00

Testing. Is this thing on? Ah sweet, we’re off. We successfully broadcast our first ever Live GD Gaming show via our dedicated YouTube channel on Saturday 10th. Our awesome host was Tim Edwards and he was joined by Rob Brooks, Jacques Waugh and Tom Greener.  If you missed the incredible 2 hour live video session, it is still available in its entirety for you to watch at your leisure, perhaps supping a pina colada. Thanks to everyone who tuned in. It was classic GD community support and was greatly appreciated.

Obviously it will be among the best two hours of your life if you do/did manage to watch it. But hopefully there will be loads more to come. Taking on-board your feedback me and Tim have had a chat about the next show and I am sure you will be pushing it even more into a live debate, where everyone in the live chat area will get more of a say. Therefore the hardcore GD'ers can directly influence the discussion, giving your thoughts and getting them immortalised forever in our re-watchable Weekly Gaming Nibbles. Its going to be loads of fun and we will all get to know each other even better over the coming weeks and months. [More]

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Director Says Console Ports On PC Are Disrespectful

Written by Neil Soutter on 12 October 2015 at 16:30

Dodgy ports are a hot topic amongst PC gamers. I mean, we’re being treated to more console ports than ever before, which is great, but is that enough to excuse ports being slapped together and thrown out the door without a thought? Not so says Eidos Montreal’s executive game director Jean-Francois Dugas, who’s working on the PC version of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Speaking during a panel at New York Comic Con, Dugas said “console ports on PC are disrespectful”. This man Dugas sounds like our kind of guy. Of course it’s not the console games appearing on PC that’s the problem, but the way in which they are pushed over without any additional features that could take advantage of the power and versatility of gaming PCs.

Microsoft Planning To Phase Out The Control Panel In Windows 10

Written by Stuart Thomas on 12 October 2015 at 15:15

The Control Panel. The mothership for all things Windows. For years and years now it’s been the comfortable home for all things settings. Along the way Microsoft has unnecessarily tweaked it, juggled things around, and generally been a nuisance. But, through thick and thin, the Control Panel has been the reliable place to fiddle with your Windows setup.

All good things come to an end however, and Microsoft's senior program manager Brandon LeBlanc has said the plan is to phase out the Control Panel entirely from Windows 10. If you haven’t been using Windows 10 then it’s worth knowing the classic Control Panel co-exists with the new Settings screen. They kind of do much the same thing but the Settings screen is a little simpler and more refined. However, there ain’t enough room in this town for the both of them. [More]

Star-Studded Cast For Star Citizen Revealed As Squadron 42 Module Wows At CitizenCon

Written by Joffy S on 12 October 2015 at 14:00

Over the past few months there’s been a surge of negativity surrounding Star Citizen. Questions are being asked, and rightly so, about just whether Roberts Space Industries’ title is ever going to arrive, or indeed if it can live up to its ambitious premise. Just when things seemed to be coming to a head, CIG go and host the annual CitizenCon and go and blow everyone away again.

The bulk of what was shown was a look at Squadron 42 - Star Citizen’s single-player component. This one’s long overdue. We had a chat with Erin Roberts last year and he expected Squadron 42 to be out in the first half of 2015. Anyway, they’ve clearly been busy since then as they’ve got some absolutely A-list talent on board, including Gillian Anderson, Luke Skywalker himself Mark Hamill, Gary Oldman, Andy Serkis, Mark Strong and John Ryse Davies. It’s easy to see how that $92 million doesn’t really stretch all that far now… [More]

Ubisoft Dev Promises The Whole Of The Division Will Be Playable In Single-Player

Written by Stuart Thomas on 12 October 2015 at 12:45

If you’ve been keeping track of Tom Clancy’s The Division, you’ve no doubt noticed Ubisoft trending heavily towards the multiplayer in recent showings. We’ve recently been worried we could be set for a Destiny-like multiplayer only game, but community developer Hamish Bode has confirmed the entire game will be playable solo.

The single-player experience will be quite a challenge it seems, with Bode admitting The Division will require plenty of multitasking to accomplish goals designed for multiple players to enjoy. “For example, I could specialize in a more long-range approach and you could be more up close when playing cooperatively. You’d have to be a little more multitasking if you were alone, or just try what works. That’s what’s interesting about the beta – people are going to find all sorts of ways that work for them.” [More]

Valve Looks To Be Trolling Fans With HL3.TXT File Found In DOTA 2 Update

Written by Neil Soutter on 12 October 2015 at 11:30

By now it’s easier and altogether less heartbreaking to assume any whisper of Half-Life 3 escaping from Valve is trolling. At least it’s high-tier trolling in the case of this latest snippet, which has seen a file dubbed hl.3.txt surface in a recent DOTA 2 update.

On its own that would mean a great deal, but between the hl3.txt, rpg.txt and ai_basenpc.txt files there’s significant chatter hinting at work on Half-Life 3. If you had any doubts about just what hl3.txt referred to it, opening it up reveals such nuggets as “string m_HelpText = "Combine Pulse Ceiling Turret"”, while some alludes to an open-world with procedural content and RPG leanings.
