Tomb Raider 2’s fan remake now has a playable demo

Made using Unreal Engine 4, the in-development fan remake of Tomb Raider 2 aims to bring Lara Croft out of era of pyramid bosoms and felt-paper faces and into the current generation–and, my God, have they pulled it off.

8) ohh I remember playing that...cant have been great though as I didn't keep it.


Albino Moose launched the official announcement trailer for the revival of classic action horror series Nightmare Creatures, which originally released on PlayStation, Dreamcast, and N64 in 1997.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suzAp7PAnRw

The trailer shows a limited number of environments and also a quick look at a character model. Surprisingly, the scenes in the trailer are reminiscent of visual graphics that one would see in a game released on the original PlayStation. With that said, the game is in early development and a lot of what is shown is said to change. Although to be honest, the Nightmare Creatures series has never been known for its impressive graphics.

The official website for the game states that the new Nightmare Creatures will take place in 1666, as a cult aims to create an elixir of ultimate power. However, something went wrong and instead they created “bloodthirsty, mutant horrors”.

As the creatures escape into London, a traveling priest and the daughter of a murdered immunologist must fight their way to the centre of the city in order to defeat the evil.

This game will be set before and after the events of the original games in the Nightmare Creatures timeline. The developers at Albino Moose games seem confident in delivering a proper new edition to the Nightmare Creatures series.

While beating up Jesus with Buddha sounds like an interesting prospect this looks really trashy unfortunately.

Edit: comments on that first video are worth it.

Psychonauts 2 is the impossible sequel that we often forget exists. But exist it does, as this ‘First Playable’ milestone that Double Fine has revealed evidences. Now, let’s be clear: the game is still some way away and this is all very much work in progress, but essentially the studio’s managed to collate enough content to cobble together an entire level – albeit an incomplete one.

The clip showcases a multitude of mechanics, such as a platforming and climbing – but it’s all still pretty rough. The task for the studio now is to polish everything up, and then repeat that process over the course of a full game.

A member of the United Kingdom’s parliament has opened an inquiry into the loot-box model of microtransactions in console games, on behalf of a constituent who asked him about the legality of the practice.

Daniel Zeichner, a Labour MP from Cambridge, posed two questions to Karen Bradley, the U.K.’s secretary of state for digital, culture, media and sport. Zeichner asked what steps she will take “to protect vulnerable adults and children from illegal gambling, in-game gambling and loot boxes within computer games.”

His second question was specific to the jurisdiction of the Isle of Man, which has a stronger legal code specifically addressing “illegal and in-game gambling and loot boxes” and whether such protections could be extended to the nation on the whole.

Zeichner’s formal questioning comes on behalf of a constituent, who wrote in Reddit’s r/Games forum that he met with Zeichner about the subject. “The goal here is to see the UK’s existing gambling regulations applied to loot boxes,” user Artfunkel said. “The Isle of Man is a British territory which explicitly defines in-game items as money's worth in its gambling law. It's currently the only place in the world that does so.”

The recent launches of Forza Motorsport 7 and Middle-earth: Shadow of War have made loot boxes a top-of-mind controversy in video gaming. Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s beta recently closed and its use of loot crates outraged fans enough that Electronic Arts responded. “The complete system was not in the Beta and will continue to be tuned over time,” it said.

Shadow of War has gone so far as to include a “bonus ending” to the story that, while it can be reached without spending money, is time consuming to acquire otherwise. NBA 2K18 has been excoriated by its longtime fanbase for the system of virtual currency and microtransactions in the game’s MyCareer mode.

The trend of microtransaction content has become enough of a red-button issue that the game review aggregation site OpenCritic is now flagging titles that have that kind of paid content.
