Google Unveiling Their Gaming Plans Next Month

Google Unveiling Their Gaming Plans Next Month

Google has long been rumored to want to dip its toes into the gaming industry at a level beyond their somewhat disconnected Android platform. Now it seems like the company is finally ready to reveal those plans to the world at large, sending out a fairly detail-free invite to an announcement on March 19.

The Google announcement is taking place in San Francisco during the beginning of the Game Developer's Conference, a gathering of game developers from around the world. It is expected that Google will announce their own gaming platform at the event, likely leveraging the Google Stream service that went into, and left, beta in the months since announcement in October. What form this platform will take – whether including a physical box or being entirely digital – is still an open question.

The giant software company, which once held a long-standing "Don't be evil" guideline that it no longer uses as the company's golden rule, has been gearing up for a gaming launch for quite some time. In 2018, former Xbox and PlayStation executive Phil Harrison joined the company to head up a then-unknown initiative. Soon after, it was reported that Google was prototyping hardware codenamed Yeti for release, but it wasn't clear if the hardware would ever come out. Google even picked up one of the key engineers behind PlayStation VR, as well.

Furi Developers Announce Haven, A Stylish Adventure Game

It wasn't that long ago that developers The Game Bakers released Furi, a shoot'em up boss rush with a hint of character action and bullet hell and a kickin' soundtrack. While you'd think the the developers would follow it up with something in the same vein, but instead they're taking quite a different path with their new title, Haven.

Check out the teaser trailer for the game below.

"Haven is an Adventure RPG about everyday love, rebelling against the rules and also, food," the developer writes. "You play as two lovers who escaped to a lost planet. The only thing that matters to them is to stay together."

Square Enix Expects A Major Game Release Later This Year

Square Enix Expects A Major Game Release Later This Year

Square Enix recently released their financial reports for the last quarter and took questions from investors about how the company is doing business. In one of those questions, the publisher behind games like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Tomb Raider, and more indicated that there are some big things on the horizon.

While the company refused to go into details, for the upcoming 2020 financial year, Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda asked people to look to the road to E3 later this year for more announcements. On its own, this is a fairly innocuous statement, but it is combined with an expectation of extremely high revenue income in the third quarter, which would be around winter of this calendar year.

When asked about why the company expects such a huge boon in the third quarter, Matsuda wouldn't answer.

Apex Legends Draws Heavy Inspiration From Popular Anime

Do you love anime? How about One Punch Man – a show about a powerful but aloof superhero wannabe? Well if you do, you aren't alone. The team at Respawn may have hewed too close to a character from One Punch Man in their design of Apex Legend's Wraith. See if you can spot the similarities between Wraith and One Punch Man's Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, in the comparison shot above.

This isn't the first hint that Respawn contains some anime fans. Titanfall's story of a soldier befriending his robot companion may have taken inspiration from Gargantia of the Verdurous Planet, a show that follows . . . a soldier fighting alongside and befriending his robot companion.

Apex Legends Loot Now On Twitch Prime

Twitch has announced that one of the benefits of Twitch Prime will now include Apex Legends loot, similar to how the service provides items for games like Overwatch, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and Fortnite. Players who have a Twitch Prime membership, or an Amazon Prime membership connected to Twitch, can get a legendary skin and five gear packs.

Apex Legends is coming to Twitch Prime: link your account now and you’ll unlock five Apex Packs and the legendary Omega Point Pathfinder skin: https://t.co/8AlASmiDgT pic.twitter.com/DLhGrTrtyi

Pathfinder players will find the legendary skin to be the most attractive option. The five packs might also be good for players looking for just more general cosmetic variety but haven't been keen on paying for it in-game without knowing what they might be getting.
