Report: Platinum-Developed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game Coming

about X hours ago from

The Australian Classification group has listed a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game is lurking in the shadows. Perhaps Platinum, who is listed as the developer, can give it a better go than Red Fly did in 2013.

While we have reached out to Activision and are awaiting comment, the pieces in place here give this a measure of credibility. Platinum has now worked with Activision twice in the past two years (The Legend of Korra and Transformers: Devastation). Activision also holds the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license, most recently releasing Out of the Shadows in 2014 to critical panning (we gave it a 2 out of 10).

The Australian Classification group is typically reliable, but until there’s confirmation from Activision, don’t call it a done deal quite yet. And if it does end up being real? Let’s hope the team that worked on Transformers: Devastation is at the helm.

To The Moon Gets DLC...Sort Of

To The Moon is a much-acclaimed indie RPG for PC, lauded for its emotional story. Over the holiday weekend, the game got a piece of story-focused DLC – but it's a comic, so you need to read it instead of play it.

The comic is called To The Moon, Too, and it takes place after the events of the game. According to developer Freebird Games, it follows "the Platypus (Platplat) & Paper Rabbit as they attempt to reunite with Johnny & River after they parted at the end of To the Moon."

It costs $.99 for the Steam version (which comes with other goodies like art and music. However, if you're just interested in the story content, you can read it for free on Freebird Games' site.

Reader Discussion – What Games Do You Need To Squeeze In Before 2015 Ends?

about X hours ago from

While we always have 12 months to get our gaming for the year in, the last few pages of the calendar always feel rushed. The flood of new releases and (for some of us) complacency earlier in the year tends to lead to a scramble.

It never feels like there’s enough time to play every game we want. That leads to hard decisions and considerations of both time and budget.

With just a month left in the year, we want to know what games remain on your “must play” list for 2015. Of course, there’s always 2016 to catch up, but which titles are those you feel like you need to play when they’re new?

Watch Fallout 4's Opening Get Invaded By Dozens Of Robots

Watch Fallout 4's Opening Get Invaded By Dozens Of Robots

Fallout 4's adrenaline-pumping introduction has players racing to Vault 111 amid the nuclear bombardment that leaves the world in ruin. IGN toyed around with the game's backend to create an apocalypse of a different kind by unleashing dozens of synths into Sanctuary Hills.

What makes this video isn't just the synths terrorizing the quiet neighborhood, but the residents abandoning their evacuation efforts to open their own can of suburban whoop ass against their robotic invaders. Surprisingly, the neighbors are found carrying ammunition and other items, and even the protagonist's wife, with baby Shaun in arm, throws down in a hilariously heated battle that escalates when another major enemy is dropped into the fray.

WB Montreal Is Making Two DC Universe Games

The studio behind Batman: Arkham Origins is recruiting for two new games, both of them “focused on expanding the DC Comics universe.”

According to the studio’s site, the developer is looking to hire for a variety of positions tied to the upcoming AAA games. The exact properties within the DC brand aren't specified, but the studio's previous work might provide a hint. WB Montreal developed the Batgirl DLC for Rocksteady's Arkham Knight, and that piece of content hints at a Justice League villain, so that's one option.  Another potential property is Suicide Squad; the screenshot below is captured from the ending sequence of Arkham Origins. 

To learn more about WB Montreal and its approach to making games, check out this video from our trip to the studio for our Batman: Arkham Origins cover.

How To Unlock MGS V’s Nuclear Disarmament Event

about X hours ago from

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain sort of has two endings, as well as a third one that was cut. Now Konami has confirmed that another ending-like event can be obtained, but it's going to require an improbable amount of community cooperation.

The scene involves disarming the nuclear weapons that players may have developed during post-game play. According to Konami, players must satisfy four conditions. When met, a special scene about nuclear disarmament will trigger when you return to Mother Base.

1. You must have completed Mission 31. 2. You must not own or be currently developing a nuclear weapon. If you have any nukes in stock, you must dismantle them. 3. Certain conditions related to nuclear proliferation must be met on the regional server for your corresponding gaming platform (PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, Xbox One, Xbox 360®, PC).
4. All nuclear weapons on the regional server corresponding to your console or platform must have been dismantled. In other words, the amount of nukes on your platform's server must be equal to 0.
