The Diablo series has always had a pretty daunting amount of content, but the Paragon system in Diablo III puts everything else to shame. After reaching the level cap of 60 (which already takes a really long time), players are rewarded with "Paragon levels." This "bonus" leveling system has no cap, effectively allowing you to grind forever, if you have the time and patience.
15 minutes of Metal Gear Solid V gameplay was demoed during a Gamescom livestream earlier today. It's the same mission we saw at E3, but approached in an entirely different way. Considering Kojima himself was present, rest assured that it is entirely insane.
Last month, a New York-based Minecraft convention called MineOrama was delayed for undisclosed reasons. "We are not a scam," the event's Twitter account posted at the time, assuring fans that they had every intention of finding a new date and venue for the gathering. Now however, it seems very likely that this was indeed a scam, as the organizers for the event have disappeared, deleting MineOrama's online presence, and taking almost half a million dollars in ticket sales with them.
Somebody pinch me. If it wasn't official, I honestly wouldn't have believed this report for a second; it's simply way too awesome. It's true though, Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima, easily two of the weirdest (in the best way possible) artists in their respective fields, are going to collaborate on the next Silent Hill game. To add some icing on that cake (as if it even needed any), it will star Walking Dead's Norman Reedus. Daryl Dixon vs. Del Toro and Kojima's Silent Hill? Yes please!
It's common to say "I can't believe he's gone" when you hear of a celebrity's passing, but with Robin Williams... well, last week, would you have called him an important childrens' performer, like LeVar Burton or Mr. Rogers? If someone asked you "name a typical 'inspiring mentor' actor" we'd all say something like Morgan Freeman, or Patrick Stewart, right? Can you start to see the hole he's left behind now? That's precisely went through my head when I sat down at my feeds last night: some of the lines people dredged up were simply crippling.
Last Saturday night, Los Angeles' Gallery Nucleus hosted a Steven Universe/Adventure Time tribute art show with signings by Grace Kraft, Coleman Engle, and Rebecca Sugar herself! The show boasted a line of attendees around the block three hours early, and not for nothing: aside from the signings, the crowd was treated to an intimate ukulele set from Ms. Sugar (featuring alternate versions of all your favorite SU and AT melodies!) as well as a prize raffle, and of course, the most beautiful collection of Steven fanart on this or any other coast. Check out our favorite pieces and video footage of the ukulele show!
What if I were to tell you that an upcoming game features a playable world the size of Europe? With dynamic weather and seasons, and the ability to play as literally every animal in the game (as well as ancient humans, mythical creatures, and more). Also, it's being designed by Michel Ancel, the guy who created Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil. Now where do I insert my money?
Perry Bible Fellowship is the stuff of webcomic legend, and is the reason why to this day I shut my eyes tight in the shower for fear of Bubble Gnomes. If you don't know what I'm talking about, just hear this: GIVE THEM THE SUGAR. GIVE THEM ANYTHING THEY WANT. PBF comics ended its most recent hiatus as of yesterday with "Harmony," which continues Nicolas Gurewitch's obsession with drawing human bodies with inanimate object-heads but having them do human things.
The (latest) Ant-Man director, Peyton Reed, has revealed a few details on what the upcoming Marvel movie will be about. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it seems the script will be drawing quite a bit of inspiration from Scott Lang (Paul Rudd's character) first appearance in the comics.
The tail end of July saw a brilliant release in Amanda X's amnesia, an album equal parts frothing grunge, cool surf, and powerful vocals that bring the brass and sass. "dream house" is today's track, and the sprawling riffs have been running weld-marks all over my mind.
References to Steam application IDs for films, TV series, videos, plugins, and music have been discovered in the latest Steam Beta update. SteamDB tweeted the find, which may indicate that Valve plans to distribute more video and music content alongside their PC game and software library.
