The GOG Version Of No Man's Sky Won't Have Multiplayer Until Later In 2018

No Man's Sky is getting a lot of attention this week for its NEXT update, which finally includes the option for players to join each others' games to compete or cooperate with each other. Well, unless you've bought the Good Old Games version of the game.

Yesterday, GOG and Hello Games released a statement saying that while the store's version of the game would enjoy the rest of the NEXT update's benefits (base building, new missions, mechanics tweaks), this version wouldn't have multiplayer until later in 2018.

From launch, the DRM-free edition of No Man's Sky will include all single-player content introduced by NEXT: third-person mode, upgraded visuals, better base building, player customization, and more.

God Of War Fans Possibly Find The Game's Final Secret, Some Are Upset It's Not Cool Enough

Way back in May, God of War director Cory Barlog mentioned that there's a final secret in the game that no one has been able to find yet, at least publicly. In a game brimming with foreshadowing, fans were eager to find out what this last thing could be, as it could even hint at the next God of War game. A subreddit specifically made to search out secrets for the game was created and has been furiously exploring this game for the final secret. During San Diego Comic Con this past week, Barlog decided to aid in the search by narrowing it down to one building: Kratos' house.

Warning: the rest of this story contains spoilers for God of War, including its ending.

Armed with this new hints, the various God of War subreddits combed every single inch of Kratos' abode. In the wooden shack, players eventually discovered some things they hadn't noticed before...and a few of them are convinced that can't be the real answer.

Psyonix Publishes Rocket League's Loot Crate Percentages

Psyonix Publishes Rocket League's Loot Crate Percentages

Loot crates are still a touchy discussion, but one small change that people have been unanimously asking publishers to implement in the west is information about loot box percentages. Does it make sense to buy a loot box if the purple item I want only has a 1 percent chance of appearing? How many commons am I expected to get? This information is useful and helps to curb the addictive nature of loot boxes and is already mandatory for some countries.

Psyonix has decided to just go ahead and release the information on Rocket League's loot boxes, citing major changes coming to the progression system of the game. From Psyonix's blog:

Rare Item: 55%

Arcade1Up Aims To Bring Classic Arcade Cabinets Into Your Home

Arcade1Up Aims To Bring Classic Arcade Cabinets Into Your Home

Arcade1Up is hoping to resurrect the classic arcade game market for homes, making them more affordable and easy to maintain. The company is launching a line of pint-sized cabinets that are about three-fourths the size of your typical machine for the price of your typical current generation console.

We spoke to CEO Scott Bachrach and he said the idea came from looking at your typical arcade emulators and realizing they didn't replicate the feeling of being in an arcade. The team took Atari compilation machines out of places like Urban Outfitters and brought them home, quickly realizing that while the games were still good, the machines didn’t nail the best part: The feeling of being in the arcade. The team at Arcade1Up wanted to emulate the arcade as best they could, without the cost and hassle of dealing with a huge cabinet. Bachrach stated "We realized there had never been an offering at retail for a home arcade that gave you the same experience, or damn close to, the feeling of being in an arcade. We wanted to give a simulated experience to what it felt like when you played that game 20 years ago."
