It’s like “having a silent conversation with the player”: why video game makers love secrets

On the look out For more mysteries, check out our look at game secrets that were almost never found. "What they did with the nightmare, that was super inspirational for the way we handled the Doom secrets," game director Marty Stratton tells me during an interview at QuakeCon 2017. 'We cannot not do something really, really cool!'" Some might argue it's not really hidden at all, though to me it still fits the idea. "My favorite secrets are ones where something new is revealed about the nature of

Doomsday Clock #1 review: A brave new world

Doomsday Clock is a bold — some might say sacrilegious — project for DC Comics to be producing. Doomsday Clock #1 seems almost calculated to subvert expectations of sacrilege, right down to a six-page preview that carefully reveals the resurrection of an infamously dead character. Doomsday Clock #1 opens in an easily identifiable tribute to Watchmen’s iconic opening, with it’s oft-repeated-in-a-try-hard-growl “I’ll look down and whisper ... no” monologue. Doomsday Clock #1 is surprisingly funny

Justice League hints at DC’s greatest villain — and completely wastes him

Justice League could have been an introduction to the Fourth World and the New Gods that would have been incredibly relevant in the year 2017 — but it wasn’t. I’m going to tell you about the Fourth World setting in DC Comics because it deserves the big screen treatment — and Justice League didn’t do it justice. With the Fourth World and the New Gods, Kirby wanted to make a new pillar of the DC Universe from whole cloth. The New GodsThe set of concepts within the Fourth World come down to twin al

CD Projekt responds to Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer concerns: ‘We leave greed to others’

CD Projekt CEO Adam Kiciński raised a few eyebrows last week when he said the publisher's upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 would contain online elements to ensure its "long-term success". It said that any online elements would not take away from the single-player part of the game, and that fans should "think nothing less than TW3—huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG". When thinking CP2077, think nothing less than TW3 — huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG. CD Projekt Red's sta

Justice League had extensive reshoots/scenes cut; Zack Snyder hasn’t seen it

However, some lines were added by Whedon and some Zack bits were cut. When everyone and Iris are surprised at this window breaking, Barry just says "weak glass" and walks out. Victor is angry that his Dad never made it while his mother tries to console him. ALTERNATE ENDING WE WERE SHOWN: Cyborg tries to separate the Mother Boxes while Heggra keeps trying to talk him away. CHANGED: Superman joins the fight and teams up with the League to defeat Steppenwolf.

Here’s another upgrade reportedly coming to the 2018 iPhones

That's not 5G speeds, but it's a substantial bump. Other gossip from the world of Apple suggests we're set for three iPhones next year, with a 6.1-inch TFT LCD version catering for those who want to spend a little less on their Apple products. It looks like the form factor of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus is getting ditched for good, so get used to the notch.

Here are your 2017 Golden Joystick Award winners

The 2017 Golden Joystick Awards are all wrapped up, and that means it's time to kick back and peruse the full list of winners. The big winner this time around is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which claimed four titles, including the "Ultimate Game of the Year" award, (I guess "Game of the Year" just doesn't cut it these days). But PC games got some love too, with nods going to World of Tanks, Friday the 13th, Overwatch, and—big surprise here—PUBG. This year's Lifetime Achievement Awar

Justice League: Two hours, $300 million, zero emotional impact. The real villain in DC’s latest is its total disregard for humanity

Following the altercation, a nearby, unnamed observer - could be the goon from before, could be someone else; Justice League pays little attention or clarity to characters who aren’t the Justice League, as will become increasingly evident - asks what the hell he just saw. This disturbingly prescient, unnamed nobody somehow knows as much as Batman does, and no-one ever knows as much as Batman does. But Justice League does not give us one, because it does not give us a villain. But this is the fir
