Those who closely followed the head of GSC Game World, Sergei Grigorovich, certainly drew attention to the fact that the thoughts of Mr Sergei are busy than anything but not STALKER 2. And, judging by the publications in social networks, he was more concerned with politics than development of the game.
These suspicions seem justified, because one of the managers of Epic Games, Sergey Galyonkin, gave a great interview on this. In General, at this moment STALKER 2 is “just a project plan, which can turn out something interesting.” The game is not something that is in its early stages, it doesn’t even start to be developed, and its announcement was made on the eve of the E3 specifically to find an investor.
In other words, the project has no publisher, and Epic Games, as it turned out, in his face to make no plans and just provide technical support, such as the one which provided her with Bluehole PUBG. So all this is very long and may not be the most exciting story, to our regret.
In the camp consolers dash: opened pre-orders for the Atari VCS is a reboot of the legendary Atari 2600, which was the main gaming console in the 80-ies. Well, once pre-orders, so the price and specifications finally officially announced.
So, the console is equipped with operating system Ubuntu. On Board there is a processor, Radeon R7, 4 GB DDR4 RAM and expandable hard drive with a 32GB. Very modestly. Asking 200 for this and $ 300 for the version in the plastic and the wood, respectively. In both cases, the console comes with one wireless joystick. Second, it seems, is proposed to be purchased separately. The classic controller a La Xbox is twice as expensive branded joystick.
Than you can deal with the console owner? Listening to music, watching videos, campaigns on the Internet, as well as get access to proprietary service with a built-in store, which already hosts more than a hundred classic games from the ancient times.
Overall, of course, hardly the Atari VCS will interest the modern gamer. Rather, it is a joy for veterans wishing to nostalgia, but also for avid collectors.
An independent programmer named Tom Murphy (Tom Murphy), also known under the name Tom7, working on their own project for the launch of the console SNES cartridges on the platform of the previous generation NES. It would seem that such emulation has no chance of success, but the programmer found one way to achieve this goal.
Tom Murphy equips SNES cartridges with a special modification, which is a mini-computer Raspberry Pi 3, which assumes some of the processes when you start the game on the NES. The cartridge was compatible with previous consoles, the guy filters the data through a special program.
As a result of this maneuver with the system, the programmer had the opportunity to do some interesting things with games. Tom Murphy is able to change the speed of the game, and due to the fact that the console doesn’t recognize certain part of the flower, sometimes in the process of testing glitches happen.

On Steam, the release of one of the largest MMORPG in recent years: Bless Online, which was released in early access, immediately received a huge portion of criticism.
For the first few hours the project has got three thousand reviews. But despite the popularity, the overall proportion positive has made a dismal 45%. The reason is the abundance of technical problems. Shoppers report that the game has a glitch on a glitch and a glitch chases. In the lobby turn some Roskomnadzor bans the IP-addresses of the servers, well, those who still managed to get in reported crashes and hangs at the stage of learning. In General, not to play.
But the gameplay itself is, apparently, succeeded, and this is important, because early access is early access. And, despite the cost (4800 rubles for the full version) wanting to play PVP-oriented MMORPG with modern graphics – full. Explains the queues on the servers. And here only wish one thing – patience. Because, as practice shows, after the start of the crisis, everything will be fine.
Action Crackdown 3 has steadfastly refused to generate some positive buzz. In particular, in recent months, the Network has emerged the speculation that the game is canceled, then transferred. Then Microsoft announced the imminent release and the show at E3, and then everything calmed down. And here it is again.
A cause for concern given the Spanish branch of Amazon, which I took, and cancelled the pre-orders for the game, returning the money to all buyers. Here the situation said one of the leaders of Microsoft, Aaron Greenberg, who assured the audience that the team is Crackdown 3 is intensively working on the game, and that the reason for the return of pre-orders lies in the technical problems in the store.
However, the assurances seemed to many not very convincing, and gamers still suspect something is wrong, because pre-orders don’t just cancel.
Crackdown 3 was first announced at E3 2014. Since then, about the game recalled at least once every six months, and frankly, the expectations from it are not very high.
After the intriguing announcement of Fallout 76 rich arrived the rumors with regards to the game, and some of them stemmed from a very reputable gaming publications from different countries, who kept saying one thing: Fallout is 76 network simulator survival, and the main character will… the sanctuary itself No. 76.
So, supposedly the events of Fallout 76 201 unfold over the year before the plot of Fallout 3. The action takes place in sanctuary n 76, whose inhabitants saw that the radioactive dust has settled, and now she can barely get out. All in all, the shelter can accommodate 500 people and arrangement of their life, the player will have to deal with. A kind of Fallout Shelter, but in more serious shell and the online reference. Oh, and I should add that one of the insiders compared Fallout 76 Rust – a popular simulator survival, who recently left early access. The plot, however, still will be, but whatever it was, we still came to this: Fallout Online, apparently, has become a reality.
But that news does not end there. With locations also been persistent reports that Bethesda is preparing the announcement of the remaster of Fallout 3.

The owners of Xbox 360 that have not been included in this gaming console, there is little reason to start the system and be nostalgic. The fact that Microsoft released its first update 2.0.17526.0 for legacy systems more than two years. Nobody seems to know what it brings, so will have to be limited to only the official miser with words of minor bug fixes and improvements. However, he says the fact that Microsoft still supports the old workhorse.
Interestingly, last update 2.0.17502.0 for the Xbox 360 was released on 29 March 2016 — about a month before Microsoft officially announced the termination of production of the console. By the way, the network service gaming system of the past generation are still supported by Microsoft, including Xbox Live Marketplace and other functions.
However, the distribution of Xbox One and the development of the technology backward compatibility has moved a significant part associated with Xbox 360 activity on the new console. Backwards compatible Xbox One and Xbox 360 was announced at E3 2015, and since then it has become an important feature of the system: more than 500 old games are supported by the actual console, and new ones are added almost weekly.
For those who are interested in the situation with updates to rival the previous generation of consoles: Sony released 14 Nov 2017 last update 4.82 for the PlayStation 3, and Nintendo on 17 July 2017 — the firmware version 5.5.2 U for the Wii U.
In Unbroken Studios are confident that the Royal Battle is not enough. A particularly good Battle Royal, so there is announced a game called Fractured Lands – network first-person shooter in the genre and the atmosphere of Mad Max.
As shown, the game looks. If it will be able to get rid of the traditional genre of technical problems, we are waiting for a serious competitor for PUBG and Fortnite.
The game will appear in Steam early access in July, and before that it will show at E3. And, Yes, its main feature are the combat vehicles, which, in contrast to the same PUBG will be not just a means of transportation, but these comrades, because the developers are called local machine – your greatest weapon.
I wonder what it will say on Warner Bros., owns the rights to the universe of Mad max. But, to be honest, in Fractured Lands essentially illustrates the classic post-Apocalypse desert, which easily can be compared with the Apocalypse from Fallout, so, most likely, no litigation, we do not see.
