Untitled Goose Game needs this character creator

The mean-spirited protagonist of Untitled Goose Game can stick a jar on its beak or strut around with a fetching bow, but there are lamentably few opportunities to play dress-up with the evil bird. I didn't think it needed a character creator, but after Goose fan and Paralives developer Alex Massé made a fan prototype, I can't think of anything else.

Chorus is an interactive mythological musical from RPG veterans

Former BioWare and Beamdog designers David Gaider and Liam Esler have unveiled their new studio and its first game at PAX Australia, and unexpectedly it's not an RPG. Chorus is a musical adventure game whose closest relative is probably the exceptional Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode, Once More With Feeling.

Blizzard has taken another hit on the Hearthstone esports front as Nathan "ThatsAdmirable" Zamora, one of the main casters of the Grandmasters league, has announced that he is withdrawing from the casting team for the remainder of the Grandmasters season, and will not take part in the Masters Tour in Bucharest, or cast at BlizzCon. Zamora said in a statement that he is stepping down over Blizzard's treatment of former Grandmaster Chung "blitzchung" Ng Wai, who was stripped of his Grandmaster status, all winnings from this season, and suspended from competition for a year earlier this week over his call to "liberate Hong Kong" from China.

Unity of Command 2 will be out in November, beta signups are open

Unity of Command 2 was announced earlier this year as a dramatically updated sequel to the outstanding 2012 strategy wargame Unity of Command. It pits the Axis and Allies against one another in Europe through the years 1942-45, with a new 3D engine that promises to give the battlefield a far more detailed and dynamic look. New systems, including HQ locations and bonus objectives, promise to add further depth to the experience.

Hatoful Boyfriend developers are working on a 1990s Hollywood murder mystery game

The developers of the bird dating simulator Hatoful Boyfriend have announced a new project called Murder By Numbers, a tale of mayhem and murder set in 1996 Hollywood. With the assistance of a reconnaissance robot she picked out of the garbage (which suggests to me that it's not an entirely true-to-life recreation of the '90s), TV detective Honor Mizrahi must turn her investigative talents to the real world when her boss is murdered—just minutes after he fired her from her hit show.

Gigabyte hit a 4.3GHz all-core overclock on AMD's unreleased Ryzen 9 3950X

Following a delay to contend with supply issues, AMD will launch its Ryzen 9 3950X processor with 16 physical cores and 32 threads of compute muscle in November, alongside the first round of third-generation Threadripper CPUs and just in time for Black Friday deals. On paper, it's a stout chip for multi-threaded workloads, but what kind of overclocking results can we expect? Gigabyte may have answered that question with the premature posting of an overclocking guide.
