The rise and fall of Command & Conquer – A retrospective look at the C & C series rise and downfall

I (Robin Ek, TGG) still remember that one day when I and a friend picked up the huge “Command & Conquer” PC box back in 1995. Because during that day we had visited a rather big computer and Gaming event in Stockholm (I recall that I bought a computer mouse and “Kingdom O’ Magic” on site). Furthermore, we were already… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Star Wars Battlefront II Campaign “Is a Continuous Story,” Doesn’t Have Separate War Stories Like Battlefield 1

Discussing Star Wars Battlefront II with Eurogamer recently, Single-Player Game Director Mark Thompson revealed that the campaign is a continuous story, and won’t have separate War Stories like Battlefield 1: Without getting into too much detail that I will get in trouble for… We take all of our cues from how to tell a Star Wars story working with Lucasfilm story group, analyzing the movies, breaking down the beats and flow of Star Wars storytelling. So yeah, it is a continuous story with a beginning, middle, and end and you follow Iden’s journey for 30 years from the end of Jedi up to the Force Awakens at Starkiller base. It isn’t a discrete set of missions or separate War Stories like Battlefield 1, you do follow Iden through this journey whilst from time to time, switching sides and playing from the perspective of one of the iconic heroes because again that’s just part of Battlefront’s DNA. Sometimes you’re a Trooper, sometimes you’re a pilot, and sometimes you’re Luke Skywalker with a lightsaber. The story in Battlefront II is canon, and Lucasfilm Creative Executive Steve Blank explained exactly what that means: […] it is 100 per cent authentic to the Star Wars stories READ FULL STORY AT…

That Time I Tried To Pirate Spore And Bricked My Laptop Instead

Spore In 2008, I brought my laptop over to my friend Amanda’s house to pirate Spore. Her boyfriend Nate, who worked at the local GameStop, told me to. It’s the shit, he said, and everyone’s downloading it for free. I connected my laptop to her internet and opened Limewire, 2008’s file-sharing software du jour. It was my first and last time pirating a video game. Advertisement Spore’s publisher, EA, cursed the game with some of the most severe anti-piracy software of the time. EA’s digital rights management (DRM) software forced gamers to activate each installation of the game, and you couldn’t install a legally-purchased copy more than three times without calling EA customer service. On Amazon, reviewers skewered Spore for this. Gamers wrote that the game was “for rent, not for sale,” and described its DRM policy as “ridiculous” and “inconvenient” Perhaps as a result, Spore was pirated at an unprecedented rate. A week after its September, 2008 release, it had been pirated nearly 200,000 times. By December, that number was allegedly 1.7 million. Pirates were actually encouraging each other to illegally download Spore, Forbes reported in 2008. One, who went by the name “deathkitten,” wrote on torrent site The…

Modder Makes $4,000 A Month Adding A Lot Of Sex To The Sims 4

In the world of The Sims 4, life is a lighthearted cartoon. You can die of laughter and turn into a ghost. You can sleep with characters, but it’s not sex: instead, “Woohooing” happens out of sight, all giggles and hearts. For some people, The Sims 4 doesn’t go far enough in its portrayal of intimacy. (NSFW warning!) Advertisement A person who goes by the name Turbodriver has spent the last year working on an epic sex mod called WickedWhims that adds dozens of erotic elements to The Sims 4. Official Sims expansions add things like furniture and clothes. This very much unofficial mod adds specific sex acts, like anal, and smaller details, like letting players decide where to come. The full feature list is a staggering menu of debauchery: hand jobs, foot jobs, oral, condom preferences, group sex, exhibitionism, and procedurally generated dicks just and a lot more. Given that the mod continues to update, the carnal revelry that is “WickedWhims” will keep growing. When characters in The Sims “woohoo” their bodies are obscured in playful ways. WickedWhims leaves nothing to the imagination, especially if you download its specialized animations: characters thrust, limbs READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Top 5 Reasons Why Star Wars Battlefront II Might Already Be Better Than the First

[embedded content] In case you weren’t paying attention to video game stuff over the weekend, EA and DICE have unleashed our first look at Star Wars Battlefront II! While we didn’t see actual gameplay, or witnessed an actual multiplayer match, it seems DICE is amending a lot of the complaints fans had with the first Battlefront — at least on paper. Obviously, we don’t know how the game actually plays (duh!), but based on what we do know so far, it does seem like DICE has listened to the fans, and will add a lot of stuff the first DICE-developed Battlefront lacked (yes, a full-on single-player campaign is one of ’em). Don’t believe us? Check out this week’s Top 5 Tuesday video to see what new stuff have been confirmed that makes us believe Battlefront II will indeed be better than the first one. Agree with our list? Did we miss anything from the early info that EA revealed so far? Let us know what you want to see in Star Wars Battlefront II in the comments. Enjoyed this video?

Star Wars Battlefront II Dev Panel Recap – Understanding Iden & The Empire

In an accidental leak seen around the world, Star Wars Battlefront II was revealed in its first game-engine-powered cinematic trailer. Electronic Arts invited us out to the Star Wars Celebration for a special presentation of the game, and we’ve got the details ready for you below. Filling in the Pieces While the original (rebooted) Star Wars Battlefront was a solid game, it was missing quite a few things. The biggest among them would easily be the lack of a single-player campaign. Battlefront II gives players that, and then some. You play as a new hero as a part of official Star Wars canon, but she’s a hero of a different kind. Battlefront II takes place immediately after the end of The Return of the Jedi. The Death Star 2 has been demolished. You play as Iden Versio, member of an elite unit known as the Inferno Squad in the Imperial forces. With no Emperor to follow, others look to you to lead. You are now tasked with picking up the pieces of a shattered regime and enacting revenge. The Dark Side’s Society Now, while the Dark Side of the Force has certainly been looked at in past Star Wars READ…
