No GravatarVideo game peripheral maker Mad Catz has a bad run financially lately, and it is about to be a lot worse. The company is due to bet removed from trading  on the new York Stock Exchange due to “abnormally low” stock value. Mad catz has said theyt will not appeal the process, which will lead to severe financial hardship for them.

It is not the end however, for Mad Catz a publicly-traded company. After it will be delisted from the NYSE Mad Catz stock will then be traded on the “OTC Pink” U.S. financial market for so-called “over-the-counter” securities.

11 Bit Studios put out the following.

Travel back to the streets of 1980s NYC as former detective Jack Kelly. Framed for murder, demoted to the lowest ranks, and forgotten by old pals, this is your last chance to uncover the truth behind this terrible mess. Just don’t forget about writing tickets. You’re a beat cop, after all.

And, in addition to awesome storytelling, Beat Cop has all the cool extra you love in games, like cool pixel-art, multiple endings, ’80s nostalgia, and humor to make your mother blush.

This looks to be an interesting game and should provide a unique experience. We hope to have a review up sometime soon.

Frozenbyte sent out the following

 

Has-Been Heroes, the challenging roguelike game of strategy and action from Frozenbyte and GameTrust (coming to Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PC) has been delayed by a week in Europe and Australia/New Zealand due to logistical issues. The new launch date for those territories is Tuesday, April 4th.
The US and Steam releases are still on target for Tuesday, March 28th.
Joel Kinnunen, Vice President of Frozenbyte and Producer on Has-Been Heroes, together with Marketing Manager Kai Tuovinen issued an apology video in typical Frozenbyte tradition:

The delay is unfortunate, but if there is something they need to clear before the game can launch in those regions, then it has to be done. We hope to have review of the game shortly and to share our opinions on it.

Bigben and Games Workshop are happy to announce their partnership for the development of a console and PC game based on the renowned Warhammer Fantasy Battles IP.

This adaptation of the franchise will be the first Hack and Slash game to unfold in the Warhammer world. The game takes place in the Old World, a dark and bloody continent devastated by the wars against Chaos. Dive into the heart of the Warhammer story, become a hero and battle to survive the desolation.

The French studio Eko Software, known for attracting millions of survivors in the How to Survive series, was entrusted with the new Warhammer Fantasy Battles adaptation.

“We are very pleased to work with Games Workshop developing a game which draws from the incredible potential of the Warhammer world. The Eko Software and Bigben teams have long been fans of this franchise from day one, including myself. Warhammer Fantasy Battles is well suited to offer players something quite innovative in the timeless hack & slash genre.” affirmed Benoit Clerc, Director of Video Games at Bigben.

“We’re really pleased to start this new partnership with Bigben, and this project will be an amazing opportunity for gamers to experience an epic story in the first Hack N’ Slash game set in the classic Warhammer Fantasy world. Eko did a great job with their How To Survive series and we’re confident they are going to do something amazing with our IP. I know the Bigben and Eko staff are massive fans of our lore and I can’t wait to see what they come up with.” declared Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop.

Additional information on the story, key realms and geography, the platforms and playable races will be unveiled shortly.

I would say this sounds interesting, but there really isn’t much to go on other than that this will be a Hack and Slash game set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe. Hopefully it is a good experience.

EA sent out the following

 

Today, Respawn revealed Colony Reborn, the next free DLC update available to all Titanfall 2 players. Starting March 30th, players can re-visit Colony – a fan favorite map from the first Titanfall that is filled with narrow streets, interiors, and rooftops. In addition to Colony, players can try out an all-new Pilot execution, Curb Check pilot, as well as the new R-101 carbine, all for free!

 

In addition to the new free content, Titanfall 2 players can also purchase new cosmetic items including Prime skins for Northstar and Legion, new Camos, Callsigns, and more.

 

To celebrate the launch of Colony Reborn, Respawn will be kicking off another free trial weekend. Starting March 30, those yet to experience the power of Titanfall 2 can enjoy elements of the game’s critically-acclaimed single player. This includes The Beacon, one of the missions from the main campaign, as well as the Training Gauntlet. In addition to introducing single-player content to the trial, players will also have access to all multiplayer maps and modes. The Titanfall 2 free trial weekend will end on Monday, April 3, at which point the multiplayer portion of the trial will no longer be available. However, the single player content from the trial will still be available post-April 3.

Titanfall 2 has been under the radar compared to other big name games, which is a shame as it is a major improvement over the original. Hopefully this new content and the free weekend will help bring in more players.

Find out the answers to these questions and more in our newly released video titled, ‘Only Yu Can Save the World’

 

Using badass weapons and powers, step into the TranStar uniform of Morgan Yu and fight through an alien-infested space station to save humanity.

Will you choose to install more alien-based powers – and thus alter your own humanity? And, at the most basic level, how will you survive with the deadly Typhon aliens actively hunting you? Every decision you make has the potential to reverberate throughout the entire game. Be sure to check out Bethesda.net for more details.

 

Set to launch worldwide on Friday, May 5, 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Prey is the highly-anticipated first-person sci-fi action game from Arkane Studios – creators of the award-winning Dishonored series which includes the 2012 ‘Game of the Year’ and the critically-acclaimed follow-up, Dishonored 2.

No GravatarYoutuber JonTron recently made some very controversial and racially charged statements. While we wont go into what was said, this has led to a blowback against JonTron ( real name Jon Jafari). This has created a problem for Playtonic Games, as JonTron was set to lend his voice to their upcoming game Yooka-Laylee.

Playtonic put out the following statement today.

We recently became aware of comments made by voice artist JonTron after development on Yooka-Laylee had been completed,” the firm told GamesIndustry.biz in a statement.

“JonTron is a talented video presenter who we were initially, two years ago, happy to include as a voice contributor in our game. However, in light of his recent personal viewpoints we have made the decision to remove JonTron’s inclusion in the game via a forthcoming content update. We would like to make absolutely clear that we do not endorse or support JonTron’s personal viewpoints and that, as an external fan contributor, he does not represent Playtonic in any capacity. Playtonic is a studio that celebrates diversity in all forms and strives to make games that everyone can enjoy. As such, we deeply regret any implied association that could make players feel anything but 100% comfortable in our game worlds, or distract from the incredible goodwill and love shown by our fans and Kickstarter backers.”

Given the extremely contentious issues going on right now, and the blowback against JonTron, it is extremely understandable that Playtonic would not want him in the game. This is Playtonic’s first game and any controversy surrounding it, could hurt the game and thus their studio. As such, what they did was perfectly understandable. Free speech guarantees you can say something, but there are still consequences.

As it turns out, there is another playable character in the game in the form of Wonder Girl. She is playable in both the HD version and  the classic 8 Bit look of the game.

The game releases April 18 and should be an exciting experience. Have a look at the Wonder Girl trailer below.
