  2. Truly some games are best played with friends and for some games it is best to play together in the same room, but reality does not always allow this as not all friends are local. Today Valve has added a new experimental feature to the Steam beta client for this situation called Remote Play Together. After enrolling in the Steam Beta you can launch any game that offers local multiplayer and then invite friends to join from the Friends list. The inputs from their controllers will be passed to the game as though they are connected to your computer, and the only thing they will be able to see is the game, and not your desktop. You can also share access to your keyboard and mouse if you wish, but this is at your discretion. An important aspect of this feature is that your friends do not need to own the game you will be playing together. During the beta you can expect the improvements to network stability and compatibility to arrive, so if you try it out today you will hopefully see it improve in the future.

  8. Humble Bundle launched back in 2010 and offered bundles of typically indie and DRM-free games that customers could pay what they want for, with part of the purchase price going to the developers or charities. Since then some things have changed, such as the inclusion of book bundles, games not always being indie and not always being DRM-free, and the addition of the Humble Monthly subscription. With this you can get multiple games every month for just $12, and to entice people to subscribe some of the games would be revealed early. The current early unlocks are Call of Duty WWII, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, and Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Revealed today, the Monthly subscription is going to change quite significantly to Humble Choice. A key difference between the current Monthly and future Choice models are that with Choice, depending on the plan you subscribe to, you are able to select a certain number of games from a selection to keep. Instead of just being given games you may or may not care for, you will get to select from a list what you want. Unfortunately, the pricing of the plans have gone up with the Basic plan costing $14.99 but only allowing you to select three games. The lower Lite plan does not grant any games to keep, but does give you access to the Humble Trove and a 10% discount in the Humble Store. The Premium plan is priced at $19.99 a month and lets you keep nine games, while also bumping the discount up to 20% and gives you unlimited access to Humble Bundle published originals and betas. For those with a Monthly plan active when the transition to Choice happens, you will be given the Classic plan. This plan allows you to select 10 games to keep and maintains the current $12.00 monthly price, so would represent the best deal. If you cancel the Choice plan though, you will lose it (but pausing it will not, according to the FAQ). When the transition to Humble Choice will occur is not stated, but it should be in 2019. The next date the Humble Monthly games are sent out is November 1, so that would seem to be the earliest.     Source: Humble Bundle Back to original news post
  9. There are a number of performance controls for RAM, and it is not unusual that increasing performance in one decreases it in another. Today G.Skill announced new DDR4 kits that achieve 4000 MHz with CL15-16-16-36 latencies, which beats the CL17 latency of other DDR4-4000 kits. For a quick comparison, when tested with an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, a DDR4-3200 CL14 kit achieves 50 GB/s memory bandwidth in AIDA64 while these new kits reach 61 GB/s. The kits will be available as 4x 8 GB, for a total of 32 GB of high-speed and low-latency RAM, and will be part of the classic Trident Z and Trident Z Royal memory series. They will support XMP 2.0 and should be available in 2019 Q4. Source: Press Release Back to original news post

  11. PopCap and Electronic Arts have launched Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville today, making it the latest entry in the franchise. In this new shooter, players will get to explore the suburban Neighborbille with three free-roam areas, and when you are not in a match you can enter the Giddy Park social region. There you can take part in light multiplayer battles, get on amusement park rides, and use the social boards to interact with others. The game features twenty fully customizable player classes and six online multiplayer modes, and it also supports split-screen couch co-op, so there are plenty of ways to play. The Standard Edition is priced at $39.99 while the Deluxe Edition comes in at $9.99 but includes legendary costumes for Peashooter and the new 80s Action Hero zombie. There is also a Battle for Neighborville digital comic and five emojis exclusive to the Deluxe Edition. If you purchased the Founder's Edition, your progression will be carried over to the Standard Edition, and if you want to upgrade to the Delixe Edition you can do so for $9.99 today.     Source: EA Back to original news post
  12. For Honor players will have noticed today the game's Halloween event has begun, titled Fangs of the Otherworld, and it will continue until November 1. It features a new game mode, Halloween-themed loot, new executions, and more. For the game mode, it is Spooky Slashers, a variation of Dominion with players needing to capture zones to gain a boost for slaying the string creatures in the lanes. If you die though, your boost can be stolen, so be careful. The Halloween-themed loot will drop randomly at the end of all matches until the event ends. There are items for each hero, but these items are only going to be available for the length of the event so if you want the spooky Battle Outfits, scary effects, or haunting weapons for your favorites, you will need to play before November 1 to get them. There are also four new executions and some Illustrious Outfits coming with this event. You also have a chance of getting some exclusive rewards by taking part in the Faction Race Order until November 1, and The Fangs of the Otherworld item bundle will be available to purchase for 45,000 Steel, per hero, until November 4.

  13. Rounding off the release-news today, Little Big Workshop has released today to allow players to start building their tabletop factories. The game from Mirage Game Studios and HandyGames offers a sandbox experience to build up you startup factory, trying to complete orders on time and building your production lines to support new products in the future. You will get to organize the factory floor, direct your works, order new machinery, and design the most efficient lines, though you will need to do this all quickly enough to get orders out to your clients. The market is always changing, so you may need to change production at times and there are over 50 unique product types, each built from multiple parts and pieces. Little Big Workshop releases today for PC and Mac and will be available on both Steam and GOG for $19.99 at 7 PM CET. Source: HandyGames Back to original news post

    KUNAI Coming in Early 2020

    Announced back in March, KUNAI now has a release window of early 2020 for PC and Nintendo Switch. In this game you play as a tablet-powered hero with the soul of an ancient warrior named Tabby. Tabby's mission is to rescue humanity from near extinction, a result of its war with AI robots, using its ninja-tier skills. You will get to assault your enemies while swinging on ropes and fall onto unsuspecting enemies after dashing up walls. The levels feature vertical and horizontal design that should help keep you alert. To mark the release window announcement, developer TurtleBlaze and publisher The Arcade Crew have released a new trailer showing off what we can expect with the gameplay.     Source: Press Release Back to original news post
