How VR Is Making Better Athletes

IGN.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 12:05

Sports and virtually reality are no strangers. In much the same way some startups are trying to revolutionize the way we socialize and date using VR technology, others are changing up the athletic experience from player to spectator.

Virtually Live, for example, is a startup that’s designing VR experiences for live sports events. In its current state, it lets users get up close and personal with soccer games in real-time by transporting them into the stadiums or onto the field as they enjoy the big game from otherwise unreachable perspectives.

Arrival Review

IGN.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 11:34

Arrival screened at Fantastic Fest and hits screens worldwide in early November.

Arrival is an alien invasion movie for grown-ups; one that’s lacking in action, explosions and all-out war, but heavy on tension, drama, and raw emotion. It’s serious sci-fi that tackles weighty subjects in a way that’s wholly gripping, hugely entertaining, and grounded by a powerhouse performance from Amy Adams.

She plays Louise Banks, a linguistics expert who is teaching class when the aliens arrive. They appear in 12 ships, hovering over 12 locations, seemingly picked at random. Every 18 hours a door opens at the base of each craft, allowing us humans in. Trouble is, once inside, we can’t understand their whale-like rumbles.

Watch Us Play Hitman Episode 5 Live

IGN.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 11:10

The fifth instalment in Hitman's murderous rampage launches on September 27, and we'll soon be livestreaming all the ways you can turn NPCs into non-playable corpses.

Rory Powers and Gav Murphy are back, and this time they're taking Agent 47 to Colarado - where the springs will soon run red with blood.

Actually, that sounded more macabre than intended. But then seeing as these are the guys who dropped a man in a leaf shredder, it's probably a fair prediction.

Bookmark this page and check back at 12PM BST / 4AM PST / 9PM AEST on Wednesday September 28 to see the game in action.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race Extends to 9 Issues

IGN.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 11:00

Originally slated for eight issues, the Dark Knight III: The Master Race limited series from DC Comics will extend to a ninth issue because co-writers Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello requested another chapter to tell their story right.

“Once you dive into the Dark Knight mythology, it’s hard to pull yourself out. Those characters cannot be contained and neither can we,” Miller said in a statement.

“This story turned out to be bigger than the both of us,” Azzarello added.

The third entry in the saga that started with 1986’s The Dark Knight Returns and 2001’s The Dark Knight Strikes Again, both written and drawn by Miller, DK3 #1 launched in November 2015 with Azzarello sharing writing duties and Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson on art. The story features Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman teaming up to stop Quar, a renegade Kryptonian priest set free from the bottled city of Kandor along with an army of super-powered followers. Quar also persuades Lara, the daughter of Superman and Wonder Woman, to join his side, so now Batman must find a way to stop them from conquering the world.

Ex-Sony Boss: PS Vita a 'Great Machine' But 'Too Late'

IGN.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 11:00

Jack Tretton, the former CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America, recently spoke with IGN about his 19-year career at PlayStation and weighed in with his thoughts on the struggles of the company's most recent handheld, PS Vita.

When asked how he feels about the Vita in hindsight on this month's episode of IGN Unfiltered, Tretton said, "Now that I don't work there anymore, I think internally it was: 'This is a great machine, it's just too late.' The world has shifted to portable devices that aren't dedicated gaming machines."

The former SCEA CEO went to highlight the success of Vita's predecessor, noting that PlayStation Portable was effective in not only bringing console-like experiences to handheld, but also pulling in older gamers.

If The Last of Us Were Real, We'd All Be Doomed

IGN.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 10:12

THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE LAST OF US! ALSO FOR THE POTENTIAL REAL-LIFE END OF THE WORLD!

If you woke up tomorrow and found yourself in a Cordyceps-infected world, your chances of survival are slim to none. Sorry!

In a video for the Wellcome Trust, Benjamin Thompson of The Microbiology Society hosts a discussion between a panel of experts to debate how The Last of Us’ infection would pan out in reality, how the UK government would respond, and whether it’s safer to go outside and start caving in skulls or wait it out in hopes of a cure.

The whole video is below - if you’ve got a spare 15 minutes, it’s well worth a watch, just for how doomed it will make you feel:

New Luke Cage Trailer Released

IGN.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 09:44

Netflix has released a new trailer for Luke Cage, prior to the show's debut this Friday.

The 'Streets' trailer features guns, gangsters, at least one bazooka-type device, and a neat little cameo from the one and only Method Man.

That said, it also seems to show clips from the breadth of the series, so if you want to go in relatively fresh, maybe give this one a miss. Watch it below:

The full 13-episode first season of Luke Cage will be released on September 30, exclusively on Netflix.

We've learned a lot about the show in the run-up to release, with new clips and chats about how the show is influenced by Westerns and hip-hop albums.

Jotun Developers Announce New Game, Sundered

IGN.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 09:00

Thunder Lotus Games, the studio behind Jotun, revealed Sundered, its newest game.

Similar to its predecessor, Sundered has a focus on boss battles and retains the eye-catching, hand-drawn art style that helped make Jotun stand out in a crowded field of indies.

Using what it learned from Jotun, Thunder Lotus has built a game it says has "infinite replayability" and the non-linear gameplay "of the Metroidvania genre."

"Sundered is a horrifying fight for survival and sanity," according to Thunder Lotus Games' description. In it, you play as Eshe, a "wanderer in a ruined world," of  "everchanging caverns."

The game has multiple endings, "massive boss fights," and a procedurally generated world, according to Thunder Lotus. It also has "corruptible abilities," meaning there's a tradeoff in using them.

The Division's Public Test Server Is Live Now

IGN.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 07:13

The Division's public test server went live today at 2pm CEST / 8am EST / 5am PST for PC players.

This is following a delay which Ubisoft said was to have "more time to include key elements."

The PTS allows players to test the current built of Update 1.4, which is due for release in October. Ubisoft says the "first days of testing will be focused on progression between World Tiers," so you'll be creating a new level 30 character with purple items rather than transferring your own one across.
