Disney has a ‘good relationship’ with Electronic Arts, CEO says

Disney closed LucasArts in 2013, six months after it acquired parent company Lucasfilm for $4 billion, and then established an exclusive licensing deal for Star Wars games with Electronic arts a month later. But it seems that despite all the upset, Disney is actually pretty happy with the state of things and doesn't plan on changing them up anytime soon. "Over the years, as you know, we’ve tried our hand at self-publishing, we’ve bought companies, we’ve sold companies, we’ve bought developers, w

Wargroove uses a little-known Steam feature to great effect

I don't play many turn-based multiplayer games on Steam, which is why it took until Wargroove for me to discover the fantastic feature Steam calls Turn Notifications. Turn notifications are exactly what they sound like: Little pop-ups that tell you when you can make a move in a turn-based game. The pop-ups look just like the ones Steam uses to tell you a friend has just launched a game, or it's finished downloading something. I played a lot of Advance Wars solo, in both Game Boy Advance games an

Respawn used fake names and disabled voice chat to test Apex Legends’ amazing ping system

Apex Legends , Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment's new free-to-play battle royale game, does a lot of things right, but its ping-based communication system may well be its crowning achievement. In order to perfect this system, Respawn had to enforce some strange playtesting restrictions, as the studio recently revealed on Twitter. Apex Legends' ping system is useful even when you're actively chatting on Discord with friends, but for a controlled test environment, I imagine you can't beat

The sensors in the Nissan Titan are obnoxious, but attention-getting

I was driving a 2019 Nissan Titan truck, a hulking beast that could drive over a snowbank without blinking. The sensors are important because it’s impossible to really know what is around you at all times.

50 sci-fi game clichés that won’t go away

Rocks are going to float in Anthem, for sure. Just look at how many times rocks that float are mentioned at the very beginning of Mass Effect: Andromeda. This got us on the topic of sci-fi game clichés, and we started listing them out. We ran with it and ended up with a list of 50 (plus a few more because we just couldn't stop). I'm not saying sci-fi games can't use any of these things—I am not the mayor of sci-fi—but I'm never going to see them and not think, 'Ah yes, a science fiction game thi

Bill Nighy: ‘You can guess how much I knew about Pokemon before I did Detective Pikachu’

Bill Nighy has a role in the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie. He can tell our sister magazine Total Film all about discovering Pokemon for the first time though, and what he did with his Pokedex. "You can guess how much I knew about Pokemon before I did the movie," he tells Total Film in the latest issue. Unlike fellow actor Ryan Reynolds, who plays Pikachu, Nighy has to use his own face for his role. Detective Pikachu will be released May 10, and you can read more about it in this month's Tota
