Last week during Quakecon, Bethesda announced that classic Doom games were releasing on digital services and pretty much every platform that day. It hasn't been a smooth launch, but still, a lot of the older Doom series is now available on modern platforms. To a lot of fans, however, Doom 64 was an odd omission, as the mostly original Doom game kind of capped off the series of traditional titles when it released in 1997, and is actually somewhat divisive because of that. Considering its odd history with Midway and split opinion, it is not especially shocking that it did not come out.
However, according to the PEGI ratings board in Europe, Doom 64 might actually be on its way. The rating for the game lists PlayStation 4 and PC, though that does not necessarily mean it will only be limited to those platforms. The other Doom re-releases were also only listed for PS4 and PC, though they released on all other modern platforms, as well.
Unlike other Doom games, Doom 64 has not been po..
Phoenix Point, the new strategy RPG game from XCOM creator Julian Gollop, has been anticipated for a few years now, after a successful Fig campaign raised $700,000 for the game. In fact, everything looked great with fairly frequent backer builds over the last two years and an expectation for the game to release in just a few weeks on September 3 after a delay or two. Unfortunately, the developers at Snapshot Games have reported that that date too will slip.
It is an unfortunate circumstance, but one that it seemingly owed to polishing the game to get it into good shape before release.
“We know this is not our first delay, and we are very sorry to the fans who we know are highly anticipating getting their hands on Phoenix Point,” the update post reads. “No one is more disappointed than we are, but we collectively agree that we would rather miss a launch date than ship something that does not meet our exacting standards. We want the Phoenix Point you play to be one of your favorite gam..
Early on in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, you are asked to make a choice of which of the eponymous three houses you want to teach and ally yourself with. When you make that choice, you basically bleed those colors, so obviously you're going to have an emotional attachment to the Black Eagles, Golden Deer, or Blue Lions. Now you can represent that on the game's box art.
As part of a new MyNintendo reward, you can spend 50 coins (the kind you get from just logging in) to print off box art showing only your chosen house leader. The retail box art shows both versions of Byleth as well as the three houses above them, with Golden Deer's Claude inexplicably upside down at the top. If you bought the game on the eShop, you could always pick up a spare Switch case and use that, too.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses released last week on Nintendo Switch. You can read our review right here. In other Fire Emblem news, Nintendo is planning to update the game to replace the voice of the male p..
It's easy to forget amidst all the other news, but it was kind of a big deal when Sony and Microsoft agreed to collaborate on cloud-based services in the future. Well, technically they signed a memorandum of understanding saying they would look into collaborating, but that's still a pretty major thing within the industry. It turns out, according to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, it was actually Sony that approached Microsoft for the partnership.
In an interview with Fortune magazine, Nadella explained that the decision was mostly driven by the PlayStation end of the deal.
“It’s a beginning for us. First of all, it’s all driven by Sony,” Nadella said. “They looked at who are all their partners that they can trust. In fact, it turns out, even though we’ve competed, we’ve also partnered.”
He went on to explain that the collaboration goes both ways. Not only is Sony building new streaming tech around the Microsoft Azure servers and research, but Sony's own efforts in entert..
