First Look At Dead Space Remake With Special Livestream Tomorrow

Motive Studios announced a Dead Space remake is on the horizon, though the reveal didn't come with any sort of gameplay or cinematic trailer. A simple reveal, but that's all it took to get horror fans pumped. For those curious as to what the remake will have in store, the team is hosting a special Dead Space live stream tomorrow, here's what you need to know. 

The community live stream and early look at the development is going down on Twitch on August 31 at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET. You can watch it right here with the official Motive Studios Twitch channel where Senior Producer Philippe Ducharme and Creative Director Roman Campos-Oriola will be showing off what the team has been working on. 

The live stream will give fans a first look at the early development build for the game and hear what the creative leads have to say about the work thus far. They will also be diving a little deeper into what the vision is for the remake, something talked about earlier this Summer

Mythic Legions Is Bringing Their Figurine Universe To Video Games

Four Horsemen Studios is bringing their toy line into the video game universe with Mythic Legions Tactics: War of the Aetherblade. The figurines feature interchangeable parts and custom options, so players have been able to build their own takes on classic fantasy archetypes like skeletons, ogres, knights, goblins, and more. While the toys-to-life craze may have died down in recent years, Four Horsemen is bringing the universe they’ve created in the wargaming figure world directly into games with tactical game. Makes sense, right? I mean, if you were going to attempt to emulate the tabletop fantasy gaming world, it would probably have to be something turn-based and tactical in order to capture the source essence. You can see things in a pre-alpha state in this trailer below!

If you’ve never seen the Mythic Legions figure line, they’re impressive. How that is going to translate into a game in its final form is always a question, but at least the team has a great foundation to start from. Mythic Legions Tactics: War of the Aetherblade is slated to hit with a free-to-play multiplayer battle mode with a purchasable single-player mode that contains a ton of battles, characters, races, and a bunch of other things that get unlocked for multiplayer as you progress.

Roguelike Golf Adventure Cursed To Golf Coming To Switch And PC In 2022

A roguelike golf adventure? It’s more likely than you think. As genres continue to collide, Chuhai Labs and Thunderful Publishing are teeing off with Cursed to Golf in 2022. What platforms is this golfy charmer coming to? Nintendo Switch and PC! Yep, you play as a golfer attempting to escape Golf Purgatory, with 18 holes (dungeons) to get through and 4 biomes. It’s a bizarre mashup of genres as you head into turn-based challenges in 2D side-scrolling golf, with all the fun stuff you’d find on regular golf courses served up in a more interesting way. 

That means players face down water, rough, bunkers, and a whole slew of more twisted fare that only makes sense in this golfish-afterlife-thing. So get ready to take on fans, spikes, explosives, and a whole lot more, stuff that would put your local mini-golf course soiree to shame. Check out the trailer below for a taste of what Golf Purgatory is all about. Alongside the turn-based roguelike stuff, there’s apparently some Metroidvania elements too – why not, right?

343 Industries Explains Why It Hasn't Shared Halo Infinite Campaign Gameplay Footage Yet

When 343 Industries dropped Halo Infinite's first Flight Test for the game's multiplayer, the reception was overwhelmingly positive. Then, during Gamescom, we got another new look at Halo Infinite, though still no campaign gameplay. The decision not to reveal more of the campaign has resulted in worry from the community about the state of the game, considering its original delay. However, the studio is now providing insight into why we haven't seen anything concrete yet regarding Master Chief's story. 

Kojima Makes A Great Point About Using Photo Modes As A Learning Tool

Kojima Makes A Great Point About Using Photo Modes As A Learning Tool

Hideo Kojima wants people to stop ragging on photo modes in games, and you know what? He’s right. On Twitter over the weekend, the Metal Gear and Death Stranding director had some encouraging words for those using in-game photography and how they can potentially improve the skills of aspiring shutterbugs.

“There are still some people who make fun of the fact that you are taking virtual pictures in the game. If you keep taking pictures, even in-game, your sensitivity and skills will naturally improve. Composition, layout, focus, etc,” Kojima says in his first of two Tweets on the subject. In games, you have complete control over your scenery, lighting, and character poses, giving the freedom to play around and experiment with capturing your subjects in ways that you may only have seconds to do in real life.

Developing that eye for composition takes time but using tools like photo modes could certainly speed up the process for the real thing. Kojima’s mini-thread concludes with that same sentiment, saying, “Most importantly, you will know what you want to photograph. After that, the in-game experience will surely come in handy when you shoot with a real camera or smartphone.”

Two New Critical Role Statues Are On The Way With Vax And Vex

Two New Critical Role Statues Are On The Way With Vax And Vex

Sideshow Collectibles is a company that sets the bar high when it comes to high-end commemorations of our favorite franchises. From comics to games, Sideshow knows how to craft the perfect fan tribute and now it is adding even more statues to the D&D experience Critical Role's memorabilia lineup.  

In addition to the Fjord and Beau statues that were revealed last year, the high-end collectibles company is now adding Vax and Vex to the fray. While neither are quite available to arrive in homes everywhere, the pair is at least pre-orderable for those interested: 

Vax’ildan, twin brother of Vex’ahlia, is a cunning Half-Elf Rogue who navigates the shadows with ease as a member of the legendary adventuring party Vox Machina. Shown here as a high-leveled hero, this figure captures his calculated approach to any challenge. The wings of his Deathwalker’s Ward curl protectively around him as Vax moves to deliver a sneak attack from his daggers — Whisper and the Flame Dagger are clutched in his hands, with a third blade, the Poison Dagger, stashed at his hip.

Norman Reedus Says Death Stranding 2 Is "In Negotiations"

Norman Reedus Says Death Stranding 2 Is

With the Death Stranding: Director's Cut on the way, it looks like Hideo Kojima is far from done with the breakout universe for his Kojima Productions studio. In a recent interview, Norman Reedus, who played Sam Porter Bridges in the game, stated that a sequel is currently "in negotiations."

In a recent interview with Adoro Cinema (courtesy of Twitter user @Nibel), the actor confirmed a sequel is the current plan in the most casual way possible.  When asked which character he thought could win a marathon, his character from The Walking Dead or from Death Stranding, he was quick to side with Sam Porter Bridges because of his motorcycle and the exoskeleton. Which, fair. What's interesting, however, is that he added, "I think we're doing a second Death Stranding. The game is in negotiations right now. So... yay!" 

While not to be taken as an official announcement quite yet, his comments do sound promising for those hoping for a continuation of this particular world. Whether it will continue on the narrative told in the first game or take on a completely new set of characters remains to be seen, but the fact that it is in negotiations is a good sign.

Call Of Duty: Vanguard Teaser Trailer Promises An August 19 Reveal

Activision has unveiled a teaser trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty title, Call of Duty: Vanguard. The trailer indicates a return to WWII, and lets people know where and when this whole reveal is going down.

As has been the case for several Call of Duty reveals now, the action is going to have an integrated component inside Call of Duty: Warzone. Players won’t have to wait long, as the reveal is scheduled for this Thursday, August 19, at 10:30 a.m. PST.

Unveiling a WWII setting for Vanguard isn’t all too surprising, as it’s one of the most oft-used settings for shooters in general, but it does raise plenty of questions that we’re sure to have answers to soon. How will this title work so soon after Call of Duty: WWII? Will there be a complete structural change and reboot? Or will we see some of that DNA in the new title?
