Dolphin emulator for GameCube/Wii games adds netplay server browser

Dolphin is an emulator for GameCube and Wii games that has been going for years and still receives regular updates. The latest adds a server browser so that people playing online can host their own server lobbies, both public and private, and search for games to join. This update also adds a new feature called 'Golf Mode' which removes latency for one player at a time, and can be passed to another player when it's their turn. Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour is the example game for this feature, which

See Warhammer: Chaosbane’s wood elf in action

The last of Chaosbane's four heroes now has her own reveal trailer. The Warhammer action-RPG isn't blazing new trails by having an elf archer as a character, and yet having seen her Legolas her way through some beastmen then dodge-roll out of the way and summon some dryads I will definitely play her in the full game. Characters with ranged attacks are usually my favorites in action-RPGs with characters who roam around with gangs of pets a close second, so combining both in the one class seems pe

The Division 2 Players Aren’t Happy About World Tier 5 Loot

While indeed many players have been excited to jump into The Division 2‘s World Tier 5, endgame content for those with high Gear Scores, some are voicing frustration about how loot has been implemented in this new content. Specifically, fans have been noting that Gear Scores for loot in World Tier 5 are variable — meaning that loot that drops in this new World Tier can be below a player’s current Gear Score. By contrast, players that had been working toward The Division 2‘s best builds, and had

Fallout 76 fans are unhappy that Bethesda is adding ‘pay-to-win’ items

Fallout 76 players have hit back at Bethesda for a new Repair Kit feature that some believe goes against Bethesda's assurances that the game would not include play-to-win items. Scheduled to release in the weeks following Patch 8, there will be two types of Repair Kits available: Basic and Improved. In a long, detailed thread on Reddit (thanks, Eurogamer ), fans are challenging the decision to have the items available in the Atomic Shop, the same vendor in which all purchasable cosmetic items ar

Mortal Kombat’s newest fighter, Kollector, gets handsy with his grisly fatality

Meet Kollector, an all-new kharacter koming to Mortal Kombat 11. From this bag o’ goodies, Kollector goes all American Pickers with both his fatal blow and fatality. In the former, Kollector beats Baraka senseless with a flea market’s worth of bric-a-brac. The latter is sort of the same thing in reverse, as Kollector disassembles Baraka and decides what parts to keep in his bloody black back pack. Kollector is the 22nd playable fighter konfirmed for Mortal Kombat 11, which releases April 23, 201

Simple dice become the heroes in Terry Cavanagh’s newest, Dicey Dungeons

Or, at least, he thinks that balance is overrated in Dicey Dungeons, the title he’s been working on alongside musician Chipzel and artist Marlowe Dobbe for the past few years. Dicey Dungeons is a card and dice game that follows six quirky characters through procedurally generated episodes of a game show hosted by Lady Luck. Battles in Dicey Dungeons are turn based, and each turn begins with rolling a number of dice. Dicey Dungeon’s whimsical design is a departure from Cavanagh’s previous work. D

Warhammer: Chaosbane’s wood elf can summon a Groot-like pal to help out

The fourth and last character trailer for the forthcoming dungeon-crawler Warhammer: Chaosbane introduces us to Elessa, the Wood Elf Waywatcher. For those who prefer to dodge-roll out of danger rather than block-and-parry against Chaosbane’s horde of baddies, Elessa may be the main for you. Elessa joins Bragi Axebiter, the Dwarven tank, Elontir, a high elf magic-user, and Konrad Vollen, the all-rounder. I played the closed beta at the beginning of March with Konrad and formed these impressions.

Drawdog is a playable coloring book where staying in the lines doesn’t matter

Moving from screen to screen, Zelda-style, new and unexplored areas are stark and undecorated, a blank coloring book for the player’s paintbrush. Spaces previously visited by the player are dotted with splashes of color and patterns, remnants of your last time through the area. In its current very alpha state, playing Drawdog feels like a mix between a freeform coloring book and an inventive puzzler, dotted with occasional character dialogue from the land’s animal citizens reminiscent of Animal

The Division 2’s White House staff won’t bother you so much after the latest patch

Tucked inside the patch notes published on Friday for the big-ass update to Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is this welcome quality-of-life change: “Hey agent! Changes to the weapon mod and skill mod systems have already been noted, and those are indeed big. But visit the patch notes to see a full matrix noting the new positive and negative attributes of each attachment; most have had negative attributes wiped out entirely. The Sniper Turret required more active management before these changes. The

Report says Watch Dogs 3 will indeed be set in London

Yesterday, we reported how an easter egg in The Division 2 may have teased that the next Assassin's Creed game would be about Vikings , but interestingly, Kotaku 's reporting of the same story indicates, explicitly, that the third instalment of Ubisoft's other big franchise, Watch Dogs, will be set in London. This has been rumoured for some time, of course—we said as much when Ubisoft confirmed details of its upcoming E3 conference —plus we know a patch that revised the ending of Watch Dogs 2 in
