Help Choose What Games Get Inducted Into The Video Game Hall Of Fame For 2019

Every year, The Strong – one of the most prominent game museums in the world – inducts several games into the World Video Game Hall of Fame. Today, the museum revealed the 12 finalists for 2019, and you can help choose which titles make the cut.

A committee for the World Video Game Hall of Fame whittled down thousands of nominations to 12 entries, including:

These titles were selected based on four criteria: each has icon status – they're widely recognized; they need to experience longevity and are popular in the long-term; the games have geographical reach and meet each criteria internationally; and they've had influence on games culture and development. Games inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame are put on permanent display at the museum's interactive eGamesRevolution exhibit.

Control Is Coming Out This August

We've been releasing new features and videos about Remedy's latest game, Control, for the past few weeks, but one nagging detail has remained elusive: When the heck is this thing coming out, anyway? We knew it was coming sometime this summer, but we didn't know the exact date.

Today, an entry on Microsoft's online store accidentally revealed the release date, which we have confirmed with Remedy. What are you doing this August? More specifically, what are you doing August 27? That's when the game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Epic Games Announces $100 Million MegaGrants Program at GDC

Starting their keynote at this year's GDC with a bang, Epic Games announced the MegaGrants initiative – a program that rewards monetary support of up to $100 million to ambitious game developers, media-content creators, students, and teachers. Epic Games founded a similar project back in 2015, called Unreal Dev Grants, which provided $5 million to similar innovators. The ceremony for that program concluded earlier this week. 

MegaGrants awards range from $5,000 to $500,000. Recipients will continue to have sole ownership over their projects and have the freedom to publish their work through any and all avenues. Looking to break into the industry using your particular skill set? Head here to apply for a grant.

Along with that news comes word of release dates for rest of the season; The Life Is Strange Twitter page posted a road map for the final three episodes, and it looks like we might be waiting until the end of the year to find out the end to Daniel's story.
