Razer has provided support for OSVR's hardware requirements. Nvidia, Intel and Ubisoft are some of the big players who have already signed up along with Razer for the OSVR initiative and this could mean some heavy games hitting the Virtual Reality world anytime soon. Razer's hacker dev kit for the OSVR packs a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 Full HD OLED screen, a gyroscope, and a compass and an integrated accelerometer. … [Read more...] about 8 Best Virtual Reality Headset To Experience VR in 2017

Now, back on January 7, 2017, I did a (very poor, admittedly, in retrospect) video detailing how Nexon had gained publishing rights for Moonlight Blade – and that we could expect information in the near future regarding its release. … [Read more...] about Moonlight Blade North America / Europe Release Officially Confirmed By Nexon

In spite of me not really liking the more PVP centric focus, I would be lying if I said I would not be playing it at launch. I predict that I will be playing some more SWTOR in the near future because the release of a Star Wars movie always brings out the nostalgia for all things Star Wars.

The demo is what it is, and I’m not using that to judge Summerset as a whole, especially when what we saw was mixing textures and animations, and lacked a lot of the things that make MMOs great. Again, this may have been because as a core MMO player, I felt like I was outside the target audience for the demo. (I could fill up the rest of this article analyzing how to properly demo an MMO, but maybe, one day, I’ll do that for a soapbox.) … [Read more...] about GDC 2018: Hands-on with Elder Scrolls Online’s Summerset and a chat with ZeniMax’s Rich Lambert
The messages posted by angry gamers on social media or the responses collected through player surveys may not always be the best indicator for a developer because the replies may be untruthful. Developers may also struggle to find success in gameplay trends if every other developer has the same idea. But with the games industry being so rich in potential and with there being such a need to stand out, developers must use all of the tools that they have at their disposal in order to find video game success – and feedback on social media and elsewhere is definitely something to be taken into account. … [Read more...] about How Do Game Developers Identify Market Trends?
