Detroit: Become Human Demo Releasing Tomorrow

What do you think?

Detroit: Become Human has gone gold and to celebrate the milestone, developer Quantic Dream is releasing a new demo for the game tomorrow.

Per the PlayStation Blog, the demo will be available for download on April 24 via the PSN Store. You’ll get to play the first scene of the game, Hostage, which has been shown off at various events previously.

You’ll assume the role of an android named Connor, who’s sent to save a kidnapped girl taken hostage by another android on a rooftop.

In an odd twist, you will also be able to utilize an extended Amazon Alexa Skill named CyberLife, which will help guide you throughout the investigation. The skill will also help you alter your decisions to get different endings.

Detroit: Become Human Makes Your Choices Feel Organic

What do you think?

When I asked the team behind Detroit: Become Human how many endings the game has, they struggled to give me an answer. Adam Williams, one of the lead writers at Quantic Dream, said “that depends how you define an ending.” Writer/Director David Cage thought about it and said, “I don’t know, a lot.” They said there might be a number floating around somewhere in an email, but they didn’t know it off by heart. I asked David what makes Detroit different from a Telltale game, too, and mentioned how gamers had been burned by the ‘every choice matters’ sales pitch we keep getting from publishers. He told me the script was over 4,000 pages long, that there are hundreds of variants when it comes to the ending, and that the game was a nightmare to QA test because of all the permutations.

New Doom Movie Reportedly In Development

What do you think?

It seems a new Doom movie is in the works.

An NBC/Universal spokesperson confirmed to Variety the film is being handled by Universal 1440 Entertainment, which produces non-theatrical projects. That means there’s a chance the new Doom movie could appear directly on a digital platform such as Netflix, or it may also be direct-to-DVD.

Last week, Actress and singer Nina Bergman also tweeted she’s signed on to appear in the film. “Wow, I’m doing the next Doom movie with Universal Pictures!,” Bergman said. “I just signed all the paperwork. I get to go back to Bulgaria again and work with some of my favorite people. This movie with a super cool director AND my new record coming out, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”

Fortnite Streamer Breaks His Own Viewership Record

What do you think?

Popular Fortnite streamer, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, has broken his own viewership record, peaking at 667,000 concurrent viewers at an exhibition event in LA.

ESPN reports that Blevins participated in the event at the new Esports Arena at the Luxor Resort and Casino, breaking his previous viewership record of 600,000 set last month, when he was joined by Canadian rapper Drake on a stream. The event was streamed on Twitch, so it’s another milestone for the platform, although there’s still a way to go before it catches up to the Fortnite stream on YouTube that drew in 1.1 million viewers.

GTA 5: Premium Online Edition Announced

What do you think?

Rockstar has announced a new special edition of GTA 5, seemingly aimed at bringing in new players – but don’t expect anything new for existing players.

Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition will be available on Steam, Xbox One and PS4, and comprises the full GTA V package (including the single player game and a fully-updated GTA Online) and a Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack bonus.

This pack seems to be aimed at bringing new players into the series as the Starter Pack gives GTA Online players weapons, properties, and vehicles as well $1,000,000 of in-game currency – a total of $10,000,000 of in-game item value.

The Premium Online Edition costs $79.99 USD  / £59.99 / $99.95 AUD for a physical Xbox One or PS4 version or $84.99 USD / £67.99 /  $110.34 AUD on Steam.

The Technomancer and the Rise of B-Grade Games

What do you think?

The lifecycle of something B-grade usually goes like so: Critics get the first whiff. It smells bad enough to stain their tongues, which they use to crow about said badness. In gaming, this can be an especially cruel time for ‘mid-tier’ games, because unlike cinema there is still little precedent for them. Mixed to middling reviews ensue. Deadlines and first impressions are, together, incapable of finding the blood diamond in what is sometimes overtly dismissed. Time passes, though, and some people wonder: “Why and how am I enjoying this?”

God of War Patch Lets Players Make Text Bigger

What do you think?

Santa Monica Studio has released a patch for God of War that gives players the option to increase the game’s text size.

“We just released a new patch that focuses on text for map, goals, codex and the resources tab of the UI menus,” the studio said in response to a fan on Twitter who noted it’s difficult to read the on-screen text when playing on the couch.

Players who wish to increase the text size can do so using the newly added slider found in the “Accessibility” menu.

That said, it appears the slider doesn’t entirely fix the problem. A number of users, particularly those who don’t have a 4K display and are sitting relatively far away from the screen, have found the slider doesn’t resolve the issue. As noted by Kotaku, turning up the slider magnifies the text rather than actually increasing the font size.
