Life is Feudal: MMO, the online medieval survival game, is charging out of closed beta next month, letting down the drawbridge for all comers on November 17. It's also launching on Early Access at the same time, having previously only been available via the game's website. In case you've missed it, the MMO is essentially an expanded version of Life is Feudal: Your Own, a 64-player realism-focused sandbox game that Leif thought was too much like hard work. Let's hope the MMO's larger, persistent

Gran Turismo Sport Online Requirement Causing Problems

Gran Turismo Sport is earning criticism for its frustrating online requirements, which have grown increasingly problematic since the game’s launch this past week. Just several days past launch, Gran Turismo Sport has encountered multiple server downtimes, both scheduled and unscheduled. That Gran Turismo Sport requires an online connection for single player content by itself would certainly have frustrated players on its own. Even by the standards of games that require a permanent online connect

The first round of backwards compatible OG Xbox games has leaked online

News on the backwards compatibility of Original Xbox games has been sparse, but if a recent leak is to be believed, we may not have to wait much longer. On top of that, the first wave of games will thankfully include more than just Crimson Skies and Fusion Frenzy and will encompass some rather big names. Obviously, since this is a leak and not a confirmation, the old grain of salt cliche applies here. Twitter user h0x0d, who is known for being a reliable Microsoft leaker, posted an image of the

For 20 years, these obscure wrestling sims have been taking players behind the scenes

Created by Adam Ryland, it's a wrestling game that places players in control of their own federation. Entirely menu-based, Total Extreme Wrestling involves managing every aspect of a wrestling company, from writing and

That is, according to a number of job listings that have been posted over on 2K Games’ website. So, the project in question is narrative driven w

Fan Made Switch Clone Plays Classic Nintendo Games

With that in mind, one intrepid Nintendo fan has found a way – of sorts – to kill two birds with one stone. Not only that, but the console in question also plays classic Nintendo games. The NinTIMdo RP runs the Raspberry Pi Retropie software, which allows users to emulate classic video games. This isn’t the only time that a gamer has utilized the malleability of the Raspberry Pi to help create a homemade console, of course. Before the SNES Classic was released, for instance, another gamer create
