Doom Eternal Delayed till March 2020


It's never good when a game is delayed, sometimes it is for bad things and then again sometimes it is needed for that extra polish. If it is for the polish, I am ok with that. 
Check the details below and hopefully you can hold off a little longer. 

Snoogs


Throughout the development of DOOM Eternal, our goal has been to deliver a game that exceeds your greatest expectations across the board.  

To make sure we’re delivering the best experience -- for DOOM Eternal to live up to our standards of speed and polish -- we’ve made the decision to extend our launch date by a few months to March 20, 2020.  We know many fans will be disappointed by this delay, but we are confident that DOOM Eternal will deliver a gaming experience that is worth the wait.

In addition to shifting the DOOM Eternal launch date, we’ve made a couple of other changes we wanted you to know about:

  • Invasion Mode, which will allow you to enter another player’s game as a playable demon, will release as a free update shortly after launch.
  • DOOM Eternal for Nintendo Switch will release after the other platforms. We will announce that date in the future.
  • DOOM 64 will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in addition to Nintendo Switch. We are adding DOOM 64 as a pre-order bonus for DOOM Eternal so you’ll be able to download and play this classic game, for free, on all platforms, just for pre-ordering DOOM Eternal. DOOM 64 will be released on March 20, 2020 on all platforms.


We are grateful to every DOOM fan for your dedication and support - we can’t wait to rip-and-tear right alongside you.

Snoogs

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2


"I realize that there are many in Seattle who will disparage you from associating with us. We're a threat to their stability - the inevitable pressure that changes the way the city's blood flows."
Elif Parmak, right hand of Viktor Goga

Paradox Interactive has revealed a new faction players can align with in Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2: The Newcomers

The Newcomers are Seattle’s most mysterious faction - no one knows where in Europe they immigrated from, or why Prince Cross suddenly granted them exclusive access to the University District hunting ground. This faction is mostly made of up of Tremere - blood-magic obsessed warlocks, sorcerers, academics, students, and more. Lead by the charismatic “Professor” Viktor Goga, The Newcomers are at odds with The Baron, who view them as their most dangerous competition.

Learn more about The Newcomers and their place in Seattle’s Kindred hierarchy role here: https://www.bloodlines2.com/en/the-newcomers




To recap, factions in Bloodlines 2 are groups of Kindred united under a common banner, often owning a hunting ground or tied together by a political or economic goal. Factions compete with each other for control, influence, and, most of all, delicious delicious blood. In the game, players will join a faction, work against others, and manoeuvre pawns in a deadly game of politics with a direct impact on the future of Seattle.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 will launch on PC and consoles in 2020.

DEATH STRANDING’s tie-in album Timefall



November 8 may be a month away but the hype is real. Hideo Kojima is either a visionary artistic genius or a madman, it's funny how similar they are, and given that he is now in charge of his own studio, his own time and his own artistic vision and freedom I am very much anticipating the final vision like so many others. 

Some of those others are fellow artists and in this case Scottish group CHVRCHES. After spending some time with Kojima they were inspired to write an original title track for Death Stranding. Which you can listen too below..

Let us know your thoughts. 


  
Check out the full release below along with tracklist!

Snoogs

Sony Interactive Entertainment is excited to announce that in partnership with RCA Records, a full album for upcoming PlayStation 4 title, DEATH STRANDING, will be released alongside the game on November 8, 2019.

The album, titled Timefall (Original music from the world of DEATH STRANDING), is named after the mysterious rainfall that affects all it touches, while its songs find their inspiration from the game’s narrative focus: Sam Bridges and his journey to reconnect a fractured society and save mankind from extinction.

Following its Australian debut on Triple J last night, you can now listen to the first track from Timefall by renowned Scottish electro-pop group CHVRCHES, titled DEATH STRANDING. After spending time with Mr. Kojima at Kojima Productions in Tokyo, the band were inspired to write an original song, which is available for players to listen to here.

DEATH STRANDING by CHVRCHES is only the first of a full set of original songs by notable musicians from a wide range of genres. See who’s featured on the official Timefall track list below:

1.    Trigger – Major Lazer x Khalid
2.    Ghost – Au/Ra x Alan Walker
3.    DEATH STRANDING – CHVRCHES
4.    YELLOW BOX – The Neighbourhood
5.    Meanwhile… In Genova – The S.L.P.
6.    Ludens – Bring Me The Horizon
7.    Born In The Slumber – Flora Cash
8.    Sing To Me - MISSIO

The DEATH STRANDING Digital Deluxe Edition is now available to pre-order on PlayStation Store and will launch worldwide on November 8.

Sony Playstation Hits Line-up


Some PS4 gems hitting Playstation Hits this week. Details below about the nitty gritty but what are the games like? 
If you haven't played them yet I have a quick breakdown for you. 

  • GT Sport - After a rocky start it has come good. Def one for the budding racer who doesn't want to play much else. 
  • God of War - Quite simply play it. Kratos is a father now and that is a whole new world in itself. Beautiful story, characters and setting make this a must play for any PS4 owner. 
  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy - A stand alone DLC / Sequel within the Uncharted world. Nathan Drake is referenced but that is it. A brilliant tale on its own that left me wanting more.

PaladinAmber dealing with Trolls in the most Aussie of ways!


The internet can be a bit of a daunting place, keyboard warriors at every turn empowered by their anonymity and a sense of self righteousness. Jump on over to Twitch and it takes on a whole new form. 

Twitch is by far the most popular and well known streaming service. Anyone with an account can jump in and create content for others to enjoy, or enjoy the content created. I have always likened it to digital busking when asked to explain it to others. I stream myself and enjoy it immensely. 

Of course putting yourself on screen opens you up to a whole range of "unique" individuals that can come into your chat. Adelaide streamer Amber "PaladinAmber" Walden has a very Aussie way of dealing with this particular group more commonly known as trolls. 


PaladinAmbers recent explosion in popularity has been a result of not only good content, but the unique way she is calling out inappropriate or crude comments within her streams chat. Using mock "breaking news" type skits Amber is tearing apart those comments much like you would see a stand up comedian destroying hecklers, and destroy them she does. 

Recently when asked what her sexual orientation was, PaladinAmber cut away to a breaking news screen, 

   "This just in, it is possible for people to be on the internet and not want to do the horizontal tango with one another, or with any of you. Back to you guys."

Amber herself describes it as dealing with hecklers at a show, 

"if no one acknowledges it, it becomes awkward and silent, but the moment you come back with a response it is entertaining."

Entertaining is right, PaladinAmbers channel in a few short months has grown to just shy of 50,000 followers and allowed her to become a full time streamer.  

Be sure to check out her next stream https://www.twitch.tv/paladinamber
