The Surge Heading To The Midway With Amusement-Park DLC

Reiner praised The Surge's combat in his review of the game, but was let down by the sci-fi game's drab environments and repetitive gameplay. From the looks of it, an upcoming expansion will address at least one of those criticisms head on. December's DLC, A Walk in the Park, is set in a colorful amusement park built to entertain the CREO corporation's employees and families – or it was before everyone lost their minds and started fighting.

The expansion features crazed maniacs in mascot uniforms, crazed park-maintenance workers in exosuits, and crazed A.I. and machines. In short, the expansion's name may be a little misleading. Fortunately, it includes new weapons, armor, and implants to help you on your way. 

In addition to December's DLC, publisher Focus Home Interactive announced that a complete edition of the game is on the way, which will include the full version of The Surge as well as all of its DLC.

First Images Of Luke Wielding A Lightsaber Come From International Poster For The Last Jedi

We're in the same quarter as a new Star Wars movie, which means that every bit of information drip-fed to us is like a drop of water in the desert. In this case, thanks to the poster for the movie's Japanese release, we finally get a look at Luke with his lightsaber, suggesting Skywalker won't just be sitting back and watching the younglings do all the work.

The lightsaber is the same one that Rey brought to Luke at the end of The Force Awakens, rather than his green one from Return of the Jedi. This is to be expected - why would you even bother to reintroduce the lightsaber as important if he wasn't going to use it? - but at least we can probably say Luke has not been tinkering away at replacing that lightsaber during his sabbatical.

If you're in the United States, you can catch The Last Jedi on December 15, but it is not releasing anywhere in the world before the December 14. I've got my tickets, how about you?

Report: Japanese Third Parties Unconvinced Of The Switch Are Now Scrambling

Report: Japanese Third Parties Unconvinced Of The Switch Are Now Scrambling

The Wall Street Journal, in their reporting on Nintendo's recent financial report that released today, talked to Hirozaku Hamamura, chief executive of Japanese game-magazine publisher Gzbrain (which owns magazines like Famitsu). Hamamura, who is known equally for both extensive insider knowledge about the Japanese gaming industry and his loose lips about the same Japanese gaming industry, told WSJ that big games were coming to Switch much later because third parties were surprised by its success.

Specifically, Hamamura expects that a lot of heavy hitters one would expect to come to Switch won't be there until 2019, due to the prolonged nature of game development and the dawning realization that the system was not going to be another Wii U over the last seven months.

Most notably, Capcom, a publisher who had long been an ally of Nintendo's through both successful and unsuccessful consoles, had been notably absent from the Switch. The near-launch Ultra Street Fighter II sold well despite being criticized as overpriced, and the only follow-ups from the company have been ports of Monster Hunter from a previously-released 3DS game and ports of the two Resident Evil Revelations games.

Studio Behind Eve Valkyrie Abandons VR Development

Leading up to the release of the newest VR headsets, Eve Valkyrie made waves as one of the possible killer apps for VR. Unfortunately, the game didn't live up to our hopes, and now this valkyrie is taking its own journey into the afterlife.

CCP Games, the Icelandic studio behind Eve Online and Eve Valkyrie, is closing its Atlanta office, which was working on virtual reality projects. The closure has resulted in 100 employees losing their jobs.

"It's always hard to do such actions but they are important and if we want the company to reach 30 years, we sometimes need to make policy and organizational changes," says CCP boss Hilmar Veigar Pétursson.

Star Citizen Unveils Earth-Sized City-Planet

While players are still waiting for the game’s long-awaited 3.0 update, Cloud Imperium Games is already teasing what’s next for Star Citizen.

In a keynote address at CitizenCon 2947 last Friday, Chris Roberts, co-founder of Cloud Imperium Games, took to the stage to discuss what fans can expect after 3.0 comes out “in the very very near future.” The company plans to change its update model so it delays content that won’t meet its deadlines, instead of moving deadlines to meet content. This should make for more consistent quarterly updates, while allowing the company to follow a road map that will be unveiled with the Star Citizen 3.0 patch.
