Microsoft Announces Project xCloud Game-Streaming Initiative

Microsoft has announced Project xCloud – a game-streaming initiative letting you play Xbox and PC-quality titles on your phone or tablet. More details on the initiative are coming, and public trials start in 2019.

The service, which the company talked about at E3 this year, is currently up and running at Microsoft on a 4G network (at 10 megabits per second) and will work with 5G, and players can either control games pairing their Xbox controller via Bluetooth or use a "game-specific touch input overlay," according to Microsoft's announcement blog (click the source link below).

The service is compatible with "existing and future Xbox games," but it's unknown at this time what games will work with xCloud. However, the video below mentions and shows various first-party titles and franchises including Halo, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 4. The introductory blog assures developers that utilizing the service requires "no additional work."

Both Guacamelee Games Coming To Switch, First Out Today

Toronto-based Drinkbox Studios, developers of the Guacamelee games, have announced that they're bringing both titles from the luchadore-themed Metroidvania to the Nintendo Switch. While the recently-released Guacamelee 2 comes later this year, its predecessor Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition is out today.

The two games wear their Metroid influences on their sleeves, with the first title even just straight up having Chozo statues to power up. They're also co-op games, making them good fits for the Switch. The Super Turbo Championship Edition was a re-release of the original game with DLC and extra content, adding new levels and bosses.

Drinkbox already released the criminally underrated Severed on Switch last year. All three games share a fairly unique art style that makes them distinctive at a glance. You find our review of Guacamelee 2 here, which has already released on PlayStation 4 and PC.

New Daredevil Trailer Confirms Bullseye As Next Villain

A new Daredevil trailer for its upcoming third season surfaced during New York Comic-Con (NYCC), revealing that one of the series' next major villains will be Bullseye.

In the comics, Bullseye's origins are unknown or only hinted at. It's suggested that he originated as a burglar named Benjamin Poindexter. We see this character portrayed in the trailer, though Netflix's version has him as an FBI agent. We briefly see him wearing a black cap with a bullseye on it.

Bullseye will be played by Wilson Bethel. Netflix's Daredevil returns on October 19.

Guerrilla Games Recruiting Rainbow Six: Siege Devs For Secret Project

Guerrilla Games, the developer behind the Killzone series and Horizon Zero Dawn, has recently been hiring alumni from Ubisoft's Rainbow Six: Siege team to work on a secret project.

Mention of Guerrilla's "secret game" and the recent hired employees was spotted by an eagle-eyed ResetEra user. They pointed out that two former Rainbow Six: Siege developers joined Guerrilla this year to work on an unannounced game, and that Simon Larouche, Siege's game director, was also recruited.  

Considering Guerrilla is hiring developers who have expertise with online multiplayer, it suggests that this secret title will either be a fully multiplayer game or have heavy online multiplayer components. This could mean a new entry to Killzone, something related to Horizon Zero Dawn's sequel, or a new IP altogether.

Insomniac's Spiderman has the gaming world buzzing about the superhero, and YouTuber TheDominoKing was so impressed by the game themselves that they created an impressive tribute entirely out of dominoes.

It features Spider-Man in his classic suit, along with other logos and his iconic spider symbol. It took TheDominoKing 7 days and 36,186 dominoes to build.

"I’ve been playing the new PS4 Spider-Man game and can honestly say it’s the best superhero hero game I’ve played since the Batman Arkham games," writes TheDominoKing in the video's description.
