Deadly Premonition Creator Swery Relaunches A Good Life On Kickstarter

After failing to fund his pet-based mystery game on Fig, the famed niche Japanese game creator Swery 65 is giving the game another shot on Kickstarter.

The project is inherently Swery, a mystery set in the British countryside about an investigative photojournalist named Naomi. Upon arriving in Rainy Woods, Naomi discovers not everything is right in the small town, and people are turning into cats and dogs at night, and that might be the least sinister thing happening.

When the game launched on crowdfunding/investment site Fig last September, it ultimately ended at under half of its original goal of $1.5 million. Rumors leaked ahead of its PAX announcement, suggesting platforms for the game that were ultimately not in the plans. With no playable prototypes until late in the campaign, keeping apprehensive fans from backing the game. The team decided to try again and is relaunching on Kickstarter.

Family Guy Mashing With Warcraft On Sunday

Family Guy is bringing out its inner Leroy Jenkins as they mash with Warcraft in the next episode.

The Family Guy Twitter account earlier today tweeted out an image showing Peter as an orc and Stewie as a paladin. Currently, IMDB's plot description of the 22-minute episode, titled "Veteran Guy," says "Peter and the guys get caught pretending to be military veterans and are sentenced to join the Coast Guard," so it's unclear how much of it will be in Azeroth. The episode airs at 8 p.m. CST on Sunday on Fox.

This isn't the first time a popular adult cartoon has crossed over with Blizzard's property. On Oct. 4, 2006, South Park aired its acclaimed "Make Love, Not Warcraft" episode in which the kids – and Stan Marsh – play World of Warcraft and keep getting killed by an opponent that "has no life." The episode was highly acclaimed earning the show a Primetime Emmy Award.

Pokémon Go May Be Getting The Depth It Desperately Needs

Pokémon Go May Be Getting The Depth It Desperately Needs

Pokémon Go still has a huge fan base, many of which turned out yesterday to catch shiny Bulbasaur during the game's third community event. These one-a-month events have been a success, but are not enough to keep the most ardent fans engaged. Those players who have reached level 40 and caught every Pokémon will have something else to explore later this week.

Niantic is adding NPC quests to the game, starting with Professor Willow asking you to help him locate Mew, the only remaining Gen 1 Pokémon. Assisting Willow sounds like an elaborate process that is broken up into two tasks: field research and special research. Field research is conducted by spinning PokéStops, which now give players objectives, such as discovering and catching certain Pokémon, or engaging in battles. Special research comes directly from Willow. Niantic isn't giving specifics on what Willow wants, but does say he will take you on a journey to make discoveries.

Completing the research assignments brings rewards for the players. A screenshot below shows a player earning stardust, a mystery item, and a Pokémon encounter. The player also earns a stamp, but can only collect one a day. The screen shows that the player needs six more to earn a breakthrough with Willow.

Far Cry 5 Has A Secret Ending Early In The Game

Far Cry 5 Has A Secret Ending Early In The Game

SPOILER WARNINGFar Cry 5 isn't out until next week, and if you want to play completely spoiler-free, don't read any further! This article also includes spoilers for Far Cry 4.

Far Cry 5's campaign can be completed in about 25 hours, but you can find a shortcut to the credits a lot earlier than that. Ten minutes in, you can trigger a secret ending that feels more like a gag than an actual conclusion.

The secret ending can be prompted by refusing to handcuff and arrest cult leader Joseph Seed at the Eden's Gate compound. After a few minutes of doing nothing, the sheriff comes toward you and instructs you and the rest of the police team to leave. Credits roll shortly after. Cuffing him, on the other hand, progresses the story normally and continues the game. You can watch a video of the ending, recorded by PC Gamer, below.

Report: Leaked Overwatch League Rulebook Includes Some Weird Stipulations

While plenty of us have been rooting for our favorite teams in the Overwatch League, a few questions lingered about the makeup of the competitive league. After the Dallas Fuel suspended and fined Felix "xQc" Lengyel for derogatory comments that breached the league's code of conduct, what code players had to actually follow was unclear.

Yesterday, however, esports journalist Richard Lewis leaked what he's calling the official Overwatch Rulebook, which outlines many of the stipulations and procedures players and teams must abide by in order to be part of the league. Looking over the rulebook, there's some standard stuff and some not-so-standard stuff.

There are of course, the must-haves: Players can't endorse any kind of tobacco, "cannabis," pornography, gambling, firearms, alcohol, illegal activity, or endorse any political candidate. Using obscene gestures during streams or matches, which is also a given, I suppose. There's also a blanket policy against discrimination against anyone for their race, religion, gender or gender identify, and so on. Which again: fair. But a few of the odder restrictions players, managers, coaches, and "other full-time employees of any team" must agree to, however, include:
