Check Out This Rare Footage Of Steven Spielberg’s Cancelled Alien Game, LMNO

In the mid-2000s EA and Spielberg announced a three-game collaboration. The Jenga-style puzzle game Boom Blocks was the first and only game that actually came out of this collaboration, but a couple other studies also worked with the director on unreleased projects.

In a recently Noclip docuseries on Arkane, the team talked about their codename project LMNO, which would have had players chaperoning an alien across the country.

LMNO seems like it would have been a bit ahead of its time, as the game featured first-person combat and parkour elements before Assassin's Creen or Mirror's Edge. Spielberg insisted that the game wouldn’t contain any gunplay. The graphics look dated now, but are especially detailed considering the era of development.

Sony: PlayStation 5 Processing Is '100 Times Faster' Than PS4

In a recent corporate strategy meeting, Sony quantified the processing power of the PlayStation 5, and in particular, how vital the system's solid state hard drive (SSD) is to the system's gaming experience.

Sony Corporation president and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said via his presentation, "In order to further enhance the sense of immersion in games, we expect to improve not just the resolution, but the speed of games. For example, through a custom‐designed high‐speed SSD, we plan to realize game data processing speeds that are approximately 100-times faster than PS4. Game load times should be much shorter, and players should be able to move through immense game worlds in almost an instant."

During a tech-heavy PlayStation 5 presentation a few months ago, system architect Mark Cerny described the absolute importance of the PS5's SSD, demonstrating how it would not only improve load times, but also give developers ways to improve the layout of their worlds and how players experience them.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Rumored

Multiple sources are reporting that this year's Call of Duty title from developer Treyarch is Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

The talk surfaced recently when Okami posted a mock-up of the title leak on twitter, followed by Eurogamer citing its own multiple sources corroborating the news.

Earlier this year, Kotaku mentioned the Cold War setting as well as revealing that the game would include a single-player campaign, which was absent from 2018's Black Ops 4 (shown), though it also returned in last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Kotaku also reported that Treyarch would be the lead developer of this year's COD, with Activision subsidiaries Raven and Sledgehammer in support.
