Exploring The Galaxy Firsthand In No Man’s Sky

about X hours ago from

The scale of No Man’s Sky has been discussed and dissected numerous times. We’re excited by the universe the game has placed before us; a quadrillion stars that you can explore seamlessly. But the question of what players can do there has been weighing heavy. My recent conversation with Hello Games’ founder Sean Murray, along with an extensive hands-on session, finally provides some answers.

Murray, who also serves as one of the programmers at Hello Games, puts it plainly as he lands on a planet called Bulari V, “It’s a deep and challenging game,” he says as the UI highlights its current temperature of -163 degrees Celsius.

“There is no YouTube video for this planet, there is no FAQ,” Murray reiterates as he wanders the planet. We're the first people here. No Man’s Sky is a game about surviving the great unknown. You can play as an explorer, a scavenger, trader, or focus on combat, but ultimately the game is all these things.

Meet Battleborn's Final Two Playable Characters: Kleese And El Dragón

about X hours ago from

With just a few months before Battleborn's impending launch in May, Gearbox and 2K have revealed the final two characters of the game's 25-hero roster. We've got the full scoop on what you can expect from Battleborn's cantankerous science officer Kleese and the earnest luchadore with giant robot arms, El Dragón.

Name: KleeseFaction: Last Light ConsortiumChosing to play as a frail, old doctor in an action game bursting with overpowered heroes may seem like a dubious choice, but Kleese's "tactical battle chair" helps even the odds. On the personality front, Kleese is kind of like a humorous mix of Professor X and a James Bond villain - he wants to help the Battleborn succeed in saving the final star in the universe, yet he can't help enjoy watching his teammates stumble from time to time. Kleese is the Battleborn's science officer, and barks a mix of instructions and insults at players during missions even when he's not on the ground.

Capcom Details New Multi-Mission Mode

Capcom Details New Multi-Mission Mode

The announcement of a team-based multiplayer shooter set in the Resident Evil universe caught many off-guard last year. To this point, Capcom has only shown off its One Life Match mode, where players go in together and try to be the last with a surviving member. Putting a uniquely Resident Evil spin on the genre, players have to not only worry about opposing human players, but also A.I. zombies that are scattered throughout the maps. Today, Capcom announced a new mode called Multi-Mission mode as a new addition to the slow-growing Umbrella Corps mode suite.

The mode cycles players through multi-round matches featuring randomized rulesets. The mode is designed to allow players to jump to different experiences without having to leave their teams and enter matchmaking. Multi-Mission mode features eight different rulesets that are cycled through at random.
