Roller Coaster Tycoon World Enters Beta This Weekend

Roller Coaster Tycoon World isn’t leaving the station until December, but faithful fans can start playing this weekend. Atari is planning its first beta weekend to begin this Friday, October 30.

Anyone that has already purchased the game via Steam will be in the beta automatically. If you ordered directly from Atari, you’ll need to activate your copy on Steam. This test will focus on roller coaster building, so the financial model and peeps (your park visitors) won’t be active during this weekend.

You will be able to use the entire coaster building toolset, simulation, physics, first-person riding, scenery you can place in your park, and more will be featured. You’ll only have access to the forest scenery type this time out, though.

Ninja Thoery Explains, But Doesn't Show The Secret Face-Scanning Tech Of Hellblade

about X hours ago from

Developer Ninja Theory contracted a company called 3Lateral to scan the face of the model for Hellblade's protagonist, Senua, and it explains, but does not show the process in a new video.

The company 3Lateral doesn't want to share their secrets, so you won't see the technology, but it is apparently so big, that 3Lateral had to rent an apartment near its studios and use that to build the technology. Melina Juergens, whose face was scanned to represent Senua, explains that getting into the mystery contraption felt like getting into a spaceship, and she had to sign onto Skype while inside in order to communicate with everybody.

As mentioned previously, we don't get to see 3Lateral's mystery face-scanning spaceship machine, but we do get to see the results, and they do impress.

LucasArts' Time-Traveling Nerds Get An HD Makeover

about X hours ago from

It's almost been a year since developer/publisher Double Fine announced it obtained the rights to produce a remastered version of the '93 LucasArts hit Day of the Tentacle. The HD edition of the sequel to Ron Gilbert's Maniac Mansion is slated to release later this year, but fans will be able to play it early at Indiecade in Los Angeles, CA. A collection of new, colorful, pixel-free screens are also ready for you to enjoy.

Day of the Tentacle stars an intrepid group of lovable nerds who travel through time with the hope to foil the world-dominating plans of the evil Purple Tentacle. The point-and-click adventure game was a critical hit when it released in the early '90s, and put developer Tim Schafer's name on the map (and the front of the box). Now the game has found a new home at Schafer's studio, Double Fine, which sets next to its fellow LucasArts IP: Grim Fandango.

Indiecade is being held in Los Angeles now, running from October 22 to 25. Learn more about the independent games-focused event at the Indiecade website. Can't make the event? Don't worry! Just take a gander at the cartoony, HD screenshots in the gallery below.

Avalanche’s explosive Just Cause series returns this year. And while you might be looking forward to wreaking havoc in Medici, there’s actually a reason why you’re blowing up the countryside.

It seems that General Di Ravello is sitting a precious resource called Bavarium, insulating him from the Agency’s wrath. It’s up to Rico to tear down the tyrant’s empire (and all of his bridges and gas stations just to rub salt in the wound).
