Housemarque And Eugene Jarvis Team Up For Nex Machina

The designers behind Resogun and arcade classics like Defender and Smash TV are working together on a promising new project called Nex Machina.

Nex Machina looks to offer the kind of fun, fast, and brutal arcade shooter gameplay that you might expect from this team-up. Set in the future, in a world where human have become increasingly addicted to technology, machines have evolved into beings that possess conscious and feeling.

You play a mysterious figure who appears after the machine uprising and beings fighting back with classic top down, twin stick shooter action. The game looks hyperactive, but reminiscent of arcade classics like Robotron.

Destiny’s Sparrow Racing And Strike Scoring To Become Permanent Features

Bungie just revealed its latest addition to the Destiny universe; The Dawning is a three-week holiday event (December 13 through reset on January 3) in which Guardians can compete and cooperate through several themed events and game modes. However, unlike last year, players can look forward to continuing to explore The Dawning’s most significant modes after the event concludes. 

Beginning on January 3, the option to engage in sparrow racing will enter the private match options. Whether messing with friends, or setting up competitive racing tournaments with rivals, you can select your map and head to the race track. Players who own Rise of Iron will have access to all four courses in private matches. If you only have access to The Taken King, your private Sparrow courses will be limited to the two maps that were part of last year’s SRL. 

In addition, the newly announced Strike Scoring mode will also remain in Destiny after The Dawning event concludes. This new focus on building up a high score as you fight your way through strikes ensures that players who enjoy the feature can continue to compete for the best score in the months that follow.

Last of Us was one of the best games of the last generation, and even though some felt that it didn't need a sequel (okay, that was me), it's hard to complain that Naught Dog is making another one.

We don't have a lot of details on this sequel, but new trailer showed Ellie playing a guitar, and we got a glimpse of Joel, before Ellie said, "I'm going to kill them all." We hope she's not talking about us.
