Undertale Dev Courted For Wii U Port, Help Offered To Make It Happen

about X hours ago from

Undertale was one of 2015’s biggest surprises, blending throwback visuals, a quirky narrative, and a twist on turn-based RPG combat. As of now, it’s only on PC, though it isn’t resource intensive and compatible with a wide range of specs.

Yesterday, developer Toby Fox noted on Twitter that Nintendo had approached him for a Wii U port. There’s only one problem, though. The tools Fox used don’t export to Nintendo platforms.

It's surreal that it's newsworthy that a Nintendo rep tweeted at me. I actually already talked to Nintendo about a port months ago... ^^;;

about X hours ago from

The most recent round of video game consoles are some of the most impressive pieces of tech gamers have gotten their hands on (insert PC snobbery here), but that doesn't mean that the PS4 and the Xbox One are perfect. What bugs you most about them?

We recently shared some of our complaints about Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One, but do you think we missed anything? What still nags at you about those consoles? Did you agree with us? How would you improve the current crop of consoles if you could?

about X hours ago from

The release of Tom Clancy's The Division is just around the corner, so if you're interested in playing there's no time like the present to learn how the important skill trees work in the game. This video from Ubisoft details how players will complete missions to expand their base of operations and improve their specialized skills.

The Division breaks down its skill trees into medical, technology, and security. Players venture out into the apocalyptic ruins of New York City to complete specific missions, like rescuing a doctor to boost the base's medical wing, for instance. The video below details the skill that building out these wings will earn you, like an enemy-identifying pulse, riot shield, and sticky grenades. As a bonus, we even learn how to attach an auto-turret to mobile cover for some deadly support on the battlefield.

Customize Your Xbox One Elite Controller's Colors With ColorWare

about X hours ago from

Microsoft's premium Xbox One Elite controller ships with an eye-pleasing matte black finish with metallic silver details. However, those conservative colors might not be how everyone wants to express themselves via their gamepads. Thankfully, third-party manufacturer ColorWare allows players to color coordinate their high-quality accessory with everything from metallic "Glamour" pink to "Frostbite" blue.

ColorWare's website features an interactive tool to help you color and customize an Xbox One Elite controller. Feel free to build your own hypothetical dream controller with your favorite team's colors or the spandex of your most beloved superhero. 

According to ColorWare's website you either send in your own Xbox One Elite and the company will colorize your controller for $119. Otherwise, you can buy your custom controller straight from them for $264. The Xbox One Elite costs $149 new, which means you'll already be shelling out a pretty penny for the Xbox One's best controller, but can you truly put a price on self expression?

Chris Hemsworth Joins The Rest Of The Ghostbusters Cast In Solo Set Shots

Last month, Sony Pictures gave us our first look at the new Ghostbusters decked out in jumpsuits and proton packs. Today, we get to see the ladies in more casual attire.

In the shots below, you can check out Patty (Leslie Jones), Erin (Kristen Wiig), Abby (Melissa McCarthy), and Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) in normal clothes. There’s also the first shot of Chris Hemsworth (above).

He’s stepping in for Annie Potts’ character in the original movies, Janine Melnitz. Hemsworth’s character, Kevin, is a bit different than his other comic book-inspired persona, Thor.

The Flame In The Flood's Twangy, Soulful Soundtrack Available Now

about X hours ago from

When you imagine a young man floating down the river on a makeshift skiff through the wilds of America while fending for himself, you might imagine the determined Tom Sawyer. Alongside the image of Mark Twain's iconic character, the gentle sounds of an acoustic guitar played by a southern string-plucker might also drift into your mind. Musician Chuck Ragan's folk guitar stylings perfectly match The Flame in the Flood's comparable premise about a youngster surviving the unsettling and placid landscape of a post-apocalyptic U.S.A. Luckily, you don't have to wait until the game's release to listen.

Chuck Ragan, the composer of The Flame in the Flood's soundtrack, is an award-winning folk musician who has been making music for nearly 30 years. Along with being an established musician, Ragan also cites his experiences camping and exploring the waterways of America as perfect inspiration for The Molasses Flood's upcoming roguelike survival game.

According to Ragan, the soundtrack is "Written from the perspective of a drifter, nomad and explorer", which sounds like a perfect match. Speaking of sounds, take a listen to one of the game's tracks below for yourself.

Metal Gear Solid V Characters Infiltrate Fallout 4's Wasteland In New Mod

The world of Fallout 4 mods is as wild as it is woolly, but a recent, down-to-earth fan creation inserts some of last year's most memorable characters into Fallout 4's Commonwealth. Intrepid Fallout 4 modder Akiba91 has made it possible for MGSV fans to put Snake, Quiet, and Skullface into their Wasteland adventures.

The Metal Gear Solid: All In One mod pack allows players to fight the violent synths of the Wasteland as Snake, all the while benefiting from his companion Quiet. It's the perfect solution for the Metal Gear fan who has conquered the huge selection of Side Ops in MGSV and are looking for a new mission. You can also equip the series' legendary banndana, though we can't confirm if it grants you the gift on unlimited energy cells or Mini-Nukes.

Head over to Nexus Mods, download the free mod, and make "V come to" in Fallout 4.

Dying Light's 'Be The Zombie' Mode Infects The Following's Sprawling Countryside

The expansion to Dying Light, The Following, hits next week, complete with a huge new map to face off against player-controlled monstrosities in the asymmetrical Be The Zombie multiplayer mode. This new trailer from Techland showcases what it's like to fight an insanely agile zombie with weaponized buggies in the pitch black night.

Players can drive around durable dune buggies with electrified roll cages in The Following, which is pretty convenient when the enemy super zombie web-slings onto your vehicle with his nasty appendages. Techland invites players to wet the country soil with blood and oil in Be The Zombie mode, and you can see it in action via the trailer below.
