Activision Almost Bought Rare

IGN.com - Mon, 06/27/2016 - 11:00

Before Microsoft acquired Rare as a first-party developer for the Xbox platform in 2002, there was a bidding war over the former Nintendo developer, and Activision almost came out on top.

"So we put in a bid and then Activision outbid us, and it looked like we were going to lose the deal," Xbox co-creator Ed Fries explained on the latest episode of IGN Unfiltered, which debuts tomorrow.

Thanks to a move by former Xbox head Robbie Bach at the eleventh hour, however, Microsoft was able to secure the studio. "And then at the very last minute Robbie increased our bid and we won the deal. And that was it," Fries said, adding, "Who knows what could have happened with Rare."

The Special Edition Game of Thrones Xbox One Looks Amazing

IGN.com - Mon, 06/27/2016 - 09:51

Microsoft has created an incredible special edition Xbox One to celebrate the season finale of Game of Thrones.

It's not for sale, but those interested can enter to win it from Xbox France's social media pages. Microsoft appears to be giving one away on each channel—Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

It's unclear whether there are location-based restrictions for entrants. Microsoft held a similar contest for its special edition Iron Man Xbox One, and that console was also pretty cool.

Bungie Details Legacy Console Support for Destiny

IGN.com - Mon, 06/27/2016 - 09:12

Come August, Destiny will no longer receive major game updates and content releases on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Destiny: The Taken King will still be available on the legacy consoles, though there'll be limited access to events. The Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner events will no longer be available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; players who wish to continue with these events must upgrade to a new console and purchase Rise of Iron when it's released.

The same goes for live events, like Festival of the Lost, Crimson Days, or the Sparrow Racing League.

However, legacy console players will still have access to heroic missions and strikes, as well as daily and weekly crucible challenges. Xûr will continue to sell his wares in the Tower or the Reef, but some items will no longer be available, like individual exotic weapons and armor pieces. Encrypted exotic engrams will now decrypt into Year 2 exotics, and encrypted legacy engrams will decrypt into Year 1 exotics.

Resident Evil 7 Won't Be the Ghost Story the Demo Suggests

IGN.com - Mon, 06/27/2016 - 09:08

Resident Evil 7's lead developers have divulged more details on the finished game, confirming that players won't be switching zombies for ghosts.

The official demo of the game was packed with references to the occult, leading fans of the series to believe that the full game would essentially be a ghost story.

However, director Kōshi Nakanishi said in a Capcom Unity blog post that "I think you can look at the trailer or the demo and get that impression, but don't worry, we haven't just thrown out Resident Evil as it exists and turned it into a ghost story. It will all make sense in the end."

The Story of the Cancelled Daredevil Game

IGN.com - Mon, 06/27/2016 - 08:36

Marvel and Sony were once working on a Daredevil game, but after internal problems and alleged drug abuse, the game never saw the light of day.

According to the latest video by Unseen64, the game was set to be a linear brawler for PlayStation 2 and later the Xbox, but the game’s scope changed considerably once Sony got involved with developer 5000ft Inc. The plan was to coincide the game’s release with the Ben Affleck Daredevil film everyone pretends never existed.

With Sony wanting something more, the developers attempted to make the game more open-world. At one point, much to the dismay of Marvel, Sony decided Daredevil: The Man Without Fear needed to capitalise on the popularity of the - wait for it - Tony Hawk’s series, which would see Daredevil exploring the whole of Hell’s Kitchen and being able to grind along railings and rooftops.

New 'Civilization' Game Will Be Sold To Schools As An Educational Tool

Slashdot.org - Mon, 06/27/2016 - 02:33
An anonymous reader writes: In the fall of 2017, a special version of Civilization V will be made available for schools to use as an educational tool. "CivilizationEDU will provide students with the opportunity to think critically and create historical events, consider and evaluate the geographical ramifications of their economic and technological decisions, and to engage in systems thinking and experiment with the causal/correlative relationships between military, technology, political and socioeconomic development," announced Take-Two Interactive Software. "We are incredibly proud to lend one of our industry's most beloved series to educators to use as a resource to inspire and engage students further..." said the company's CEO. "I can't think of a better interactive experience to help challenge and shape the minds of tomorrow's leaders." Special lesson plans will be created around the game, and as an alternative to standardized tests teachers will have access to a dashboard showing each student's progress. Of course, this begs an important question: Are educational videogames a good idea?

Game of Thrones: So Much Happened in Season 6's Finale!

IGN.com - Mon, 06/27/2016 - 00:36

Warning: Full spoilers for Game of Thrones' Season 6 finale episode, "The Winds of Winter," below.

Game of Thrones wrapped up its sixth season with an incredibly eventful episode -- you can read Matt Fowler's review by clicking here -- that truly seemed to set the stage for the endgame of the series.

So let's discuss "The Winders of Winter" and all that occurred!

This week's Dragons on the Wall topics include:

-The full reveal of Cersei's plan and all the fallout from it

-Dany finally heading towards Westeros

-Jon Snow named the new King in the North and if he and Sansa's alliance will hold

Game of Thrones: Season 6 Finale Review

IGN.com - Sun, 06/26/2016 - 23:09

Warning: Full spoilers for the Game of Thrones: Season 6 finale below.

So how about that for a super-sized season capper? There wasn’t a ton of action here, given last week’s mammoth set piece sort of paved the way for a more somber, conversational finale - save for the notable exception of the wicked wildfire massacre in King’s Landing - but this was still a really strong chapter.

The quickness in which people travel now on Game of Thrones continues to be a minor concern, especially when it took Sam the entire season to reach Oldtown while Varys went from Meereen to Dorne and back in twenty minutes, but it’s easy enough to understand that the separate scenes we’re watching aren’t meant to line up time-wise. But it has been a little distracting this year, to delicately address it. I don’t mind the fast off-screen travel in general, it’s just not consistent here. And it makes you wonder how long Jon and Sansa’s quest to visit the northern lords took versus how long Cersei was cooped up in the Red Keep versus how long it took Theon and Yara to travel halfway across the world.

Game of Thrones: Will Jon and Sansa Stay Allies?

IGN.com - Sun, 06/26/2016 - 22:51

SPOILERS for the Season 6 finale of HBO's Game of Thrones follow.

As the houses of the North pledged their allegiance to Jon Snow -- aka the White Wolf -- in a callback to Robb Stark's similarly triumphant moment a few seasons ago, Sansa Stark remained seated through it all with a pointed look -- one conspicuously shared by the ever-scheming Petyr Baelish.

Might Littlefinger's final ploy be to ultimately turn these two Starks against one another and pave the way for his own usurpation of power? He did admit to Sansa, after all, that his dream was to sit upon the Iron Throne with her by his side.

"Sansa, she does love her brother, you know? And they've had a conflicted past," said Game of Thrones co-showrunner David Benioff in HBO's Game of Thrones Season 6: Inside the Episode #10 (seen below).

Game of Thrones: Who Is Jon Snow's Father?

IGN.com - Sun, 06/26/2016 - 22:43

The Season 6 finale of Game of Thrones "The Winds of Winter" gave us a clearer picture than ever of Jon Snow’s mysterious parentage. Let’s dive into those details and see if we can get a better idea of what Jon's family heart tree looks like.

Warning: this article contains full spoilers for "The Winds of Winter"!

As Bran taps back into the weirwood network of important plot revelations, we return to the pivotal flashback that was abruptly cut off in “Oathbreaker” earlier this season which saw young Ned Stark defeat the Targaryen guards and ascend up the steps of the Tower of Joy. It turns out what awaited him inside was his dying sister Lyanna Stark, who was bleeding out after delivering baby Jon Snow.
