Knuckle Sandwich, the RPG about fast food and cults, smashes Kickstarter goal in 12 hours

Knuckle Sandwich, the absurd, minigame-laden RPG about a boy working in a run-down diner, landed on Kickstarter earlier this week, and hit its $25,000 AUD (roughly $19,000) goal within 12 hours. Mix them all together and you get a surreal RPG involving a missing persons mystery and a fanatic cult. In Knuckle Sandwich, you'll explore Bright City and get to know its wacky inhabitants, with each of its chapters set in a different part of the city. "Mechanically speaking, my inspirations include War

Black Ops 4 Battle Royale May See Standalone Release on Switch

There’s no denying that the battle royale subgenre is one of the hottest trends in gaming, if not the hottest. On other platforms, the battle royale mode may be bundled with copies of Black Ops 4. Many are even worried that the battle royale mode, which is supposedly being developed by Raven Software, is what will be replacing the campaign mode in the game. The reason for this worry is that the focus for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be on Zombies and multiplayer, not the single player campaign

Pretty Metroidvania Faeland jumps onto Kickstarter

Faeland's pretty pixel art first caught my eye in January when it was just a teaser trailer, but now it's come to Kickstarter with a prototype build in search of $29,000. You control Sam, a secluded hunter who's driven from his home by a band of orcs and trolls. The combat looks to be fairly deliberate: you can't swing lightning fast, so it's all about timing dodges and blocks. I know some people are sick of pixel art, but I like the fact that Faeland's visuals are relatively soft and easy on th

Next Stellaris update will overhaul anomalies and add multi-star systems

Stellaris, which we chose as one of the best strategy games on PC earlier this month, will overhaul the way that anomalies work in an upcoming update and introduce multi-star systems for the first time, developer Paradox Interactive has announced. The 2.1 update, called Niven, will remove the chance of failure when researching anomalies, which are points of interests on planets that can grant bonuses when investigated. After the Niven update, researching anomalies will always be successful, but

Golden Guardians announce changes for Summer Split roster

The Spring Split wasn’t a great for the Golden Guardians. Lam’s replacement is former Team Liquid and Liquid Academy player Son “Mickey” Young-min. In his most recent split, Son helped take Team Liquid Academy to a first place finish in the NA Academy League Spring Split regular season, as well as a semifinal appearance during the playoffs. Also notable is the fact that the Golden Guardians interim coach, Tyler Perron, will be officially moved to the head coaching job. Also joining the team as a

Hawkeye’s absence from Avengers: Infinity War ads is a blessing, exec says

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said that Hawkeye’s disappearance from Avengers: Infinity War marketing is the best thing that could have happened to the character. Feige spoke to io9 about Hawkeye at the Infinity War press conference, checking in to make sure the superhero (and everyone’s favorite Legolas cosplayer) was doing alright. Feige joked that, considering Hawkeye is everyone’s favorite Avenger to tease, it’s a blessing that he’s not in any of the marketing. It’s the best.”Feige’s comme

Westworld’s inability to be upfront is eerily reminiscent of Facebook’s troubles

Westworld’s second season premiere shares some interesting similarities to Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal. Facebook users have been left aghast at just how much personal info the company collects. The consequences for visitors to Westworld can be seen as far more dire than Facebook users’ data being collected and shared. Westworld’s terms of service allow Delos to harvest parts of human bodies for reasons that are never fully explained. Westworld visitors are giving up physi

God of War update makes the game’s tiny text easier to read

Sony’s new God of War is an excellent action-adventure game, but it’s not without its minor issues — namely that the PlayStation 4 game’s tiny, tiny text can sometimes be difficult to read. In God of War’s settings, the Accessibility section now includes the option to increase the HUD’s text size. The option stresses that the increase in font size is selective; not every instance of tiny text is affected by the setting. Here are a few examples of where God of War’s wee text gets a boost:But as y

God of War speedruns are impressive — if you don’t mind cutscenes

God of War is a big, sprawling game that could easily take you dozens of hours. That’s the kind of challenge that speedrunners love, and they’ve already been able to beat the PlayStation 4 game in sub-10 hours. Streamer uhTrance holds what appears to be the current world record for running the game; he finished it in seven hours, 49 minutes. There’s nothing wrong with cutscenes or plot development or story moments to flesh out characters; those are some of the things God of War does best. But he
