The Batman: Arkham series has been a beloved fan favourite ever since Rocksteady released Batman: Arkham Asylum back in 2009. Now, an alleged Warner Bros. Montreal employee—or as he puts it, "soon-to-be-former-WB-employee"—has leaked a host of potential details on a new game in the series, allegedly titled, Batman: Arkham Insurgency.
With Sony cutting back support for the PlayStation Now service this week (only relegating it to PlayStation 4 and PC), one can only assume that the service has been slowly dying over the course of the past few years. This is mostly due to its high cost.
Yesterday, Microsoft announced that their E3 show will be held on Sunday, instead of the usual Monday showcase, right before Sony takes the stage a mere seven hours later. At first glance, this wouldn't seem out of the ordinary until you look a bit deeper.
Despite between 15-20% of the world’s population being disabled, gaming remains one of the more inaccessible industries. Creating accessible games without sacrificing quality or content seems to be an insurmountable challenge with perhaps a less apparent reward.
ICXM will hopefully be around for a long time. We love our work and we love our readers but we can't keep writing on our own. Servers cost money, sometimes the games cost money, the hardware most definitely costs money. The site as it is now does not bring in the income that many of you online might think with that all-important advertisements.
What defines a next-generation console? Is it the fact that it offers better visuals or additional functionality? Or is it about using new techniques when it comes to developing games? I think a true next-generation machine must incorporate all of these aspects.
With the proper reveal and launch of Project Scorpio nearing, the past few years have come into perspective as the negative stories against the console—which we know next to nothing about—increase. Microsoft have kept the console close to their chests and have revealed only interesting tidbits on Twitter, keeping everyone on their toes.
Yesterday Digital Foundry, pixel counters extraordinaire, revealed that they managed to dig up an old white paper—after what must have been exhausting work—from the Xbox division that spoke about Microsoft's upcoming Project Scorpio release.
Roughly twenty million people have gained healthcare coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act. Many of these people include game developers, who otherwise have no access to health insurance. With the recent presidential election, game developers stand to lose this insurance if the law is repealed.
Cancelling games is never an easy decision and while Microsoft have killed some projects in recent years, the developers are not the only side that takes a hit. We complain almost constantly at the price of video games.
We recently went through the reveal trailer for Project Scorpio and came up with what we thought was represented in the video. While it may not have been what people expected, we think it's an accurate representation of the prototype teased in the trailer. Well, today we're going to do the same for the Surface Phone.
Nintendo finally announced their answer to the ongoing fierce battle between Microsoft and Sony, with a two-in-one console that is simultaneously a handheld and a home console. While the concept is unique, it might learn a thing or two from the mistakes Microsoft made with the Xbox One reveal.
Ever since Xbox Scorpio was revealed, we don't know what the console looks like. The only images we've received were silhouettes in the reveal trailer. If we make the assumption that what was shown during the trailer was similar to the final product, or at least a prototype, we may be able to determine what the design entails.
