Spiderweb Software's latest crappy-looking RPG is now live
https://www.pcgamer.com/spiderweb-softwares-latest-crappy-looking-rpg-is-now-live/
Jeff Vogel makes ugly games. It's almost literally his brand. And he's been very successful at it, establishing his Spiderweb Software studio as a reliable developer of deep, complex fantasy RPGs. He took his first crack at Kickstarter in 2018 and did very well, more than tripling its $30,000 goal, and today the subject of that campaign—Queen's Wish: The Conqueror—went live on Steam.

Yeah, graphically, Spiderweb's games still look a lot like Exile 1-3 (which came out for Windows 3.x and have since been remade and expanded as Avernum - twice!). However, they are hardly matched in their descriptions, world-building and RPG mechanics.

Too bad Phil Foglio doesn't make the illustrations for the skills anymore, those were bloody hilarious all the way back in Exile - and some a bit risqué, too.

Backed the game on Kickstarter, and it's an interesting premise, but haven't made it far enough yet to really tell if it's good or not. It's strongly simplified combat-wise compared to Avernum, but that's probably due to economy and diplomacy becoming more prominent.

Minecraft attracts more than 112 million players per month
https://www.pcgamer.com/minecraft-attracts-more-than-112-million-players-per-month/
There's this game called Minecraft and it's really popular. According to Minecraft studio head Helen Chiang, over 112 million people play it per month. That's a third of the population of the United States, and the Australian population is a sixth of that figure. If you had 112 million donuts, and divided them up between 10,000 ibises, each ibis would have 112,000 donuts each. That's too many donuts by anyone's measure.

GOG starts the week with two new sales:

Steam has two new daily deals:

First PC mods released for Demon’s Souls; graphics, cheats, gameplay and more
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/first-pc-mods-released-for-demons-souls-graphics-cheats-gameplay-and-more/
While Demon’s Souls has not been officially released on the PC, it appears that the first PC mods for it have surfaced online. To use these mods, you’ll need RPCS3 and a copy of the PS3 version of Demon’s Souls. In other words, these mods only work on the PC. So yeah, similarly to some Nintendo Wii/Gamecube games, PC gamers can now play modded versions of Demon’s Souls via its Playstation 3 emulator.
>> There are 7 mods in total.

This cool WoW Classic addon lets you open your own shop
https://www.pcgamer.com/this-cool-wow-classic-addon-lets-you-open-your-own-shop/
Though this addon is still in active development, IAmAMerchant creates a special window where you can list items in your inventory for sale along with a set price. Other players who have that addon will then see a special icon above your nameplate indicating that you got goods to sell.
Instead of automating the actual exchange of goods and gold, though, mod maker NukiWolf2 says they want players to still do that for themselves. So you'll still have to whisper that player, agree on a price, and then trade the items manually. "This is something I want people to still do on their own," NukiWolf2 wrote in a Reddit post about the mod. "This game lives on communication and player interaction!"

Fallout 76's $5 junk bot was apparently meant to be in the base game
https://www.pcgamer.com/fallout-76s-dollar5-junk-bot-was-apparently-meant-to-be-in-the-base-game/
As Fraser pointed out yesterday, many Fallout 76 players are unhappy with two new items for sale in the Atomic Shop: a refrigerator that slows down the decomposition of food and a robot that collects junk for you.(...)
Most of the player complaints stem from the fact that Bethesda originally stated the Atomic Shop would only contain cosmetic items, and the fridge and scrap bot (along with repair kits and scrap kits added to the Shop earlier in the year) aren't cosmetics, they have an effect in the game world. (Though I just bought the scrap bot myself, and I can confidently state it is practically a cosmetic item because it barely collects anything. I can collect more scrap in two minutes than it can in an hour.)

The ESA 'strongly disagrees' with UK commission's finding on loot boxes
https://www.pcgamer.com/the-esa-strongly-disagrees-with-uk-commissions-finding-on-loot-boxes/
Earlier this week the UK's Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport issued a report recommending that loot boxes in videogames be subject to the same regulations as gambling, which would include content labels on games with paid loot boxes and a ban on selling them to minors.(...)
Ukie, the Association for UK Interactive Entertainment, put on a happy face in response to the report, saying that it is "pleased the Committee acknowledges that the majority of people play video games in a positive, safe and responsible way," and emphasizing its support for efforts to increase "digital literacy."
(...)
The reaction on the North American side of the pond was somewhat more confrontational, however. "We take seriously the issues raised in the UK Parliament's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee report, but strongly disagree with its findings," an Entertainment Software Association representative told GamesIndustry.biz.

Gwent's next expansion brings back Radovid, has a better trailer than some full games
https://www.pcgamer.com/gwents-next-expansion-brings-back-radovid-has-a-better-trailer-than-some-full-games/
Of all the current crop of card games, Gwent has the best art—especially the premium cards, which are animated. But even the standard ones are ridiculously nice. The high production values carry over to the trailers, like this one for the forthcoming Iron Judgment expansion. That's the voice actor who played Radovid in the first game returning to narrate, as this expansion will apparently focus on him and the armies of the North.

The creators of Zero Escape and Danganronpa are working on Death March Club
https://www.pcgamer.com/the-creators-of-zero-escape-and-danganronpa-are-working-on-death-march-club/
Too Kyo Games is a studio founded by Danganronpa series creator Kazutaka Kodaka and Zero Escape series creator Kotaro Uchikoshi, with several other staff who worked on the two popular series. Last year they revealed several projects including a game called Death March Club and gave some bare bones details, but now we've got a little more to go on.

Keanu is not one of Cyberpunk 2077's romance options, if you were wondering
https://www.pcgamer.com/keanu-is-not-one-of-cyberpunk-2077s-romance-options-if-you-were-wondering/
Cyberpunk 2077 promises plenty of action and adventure, but in between all the gunfire and fistfights and hacking and high-speed getaways, there will be time for some tender moments of romance, too. CD Projekt has previously said that romance—or just sex—will be "heavily present in Cyberpunk," but as we noted in our rundown of everything we know about the game, it hasn't answered the most pressing question of all: Will you be able to get busy with Keanu?

Every Cyberpunk 2077 quest will be handcrafted
https://www.pcgamer.com/every-cyberpunk-2077-quest-will-be-handcrafted/
Plenty of massive open world RPG games have procedurally generated quests: Skyrim and Fallout 4 are most notable, thanks to Bethesda Softworks' Radiant AI tech. But it's fairly common for loot-oriented games like Diablo and The Division to have them too. Cyberpunk 2077, on the other hand, definitely will not have them.

Six-year-old indie FPS Receiver gets updated

Hack the '80s internet in free hacking adventure Wardialler
https://www.pcgamer.com/hack-the-80s-internet-in-free-hacking-adventure-wardialler/
Hacking—films and TV inform me—is what happens when edgy, punky young people type endless code into computers, while never once using a mouse, or stopping to think about what exactly they're typing. Hacking—Wardialler informs me—is actually a much more thoughtful process, basically akin to detective work, but on The Net. You're allowed to give your fingers a rest now and again, and you even get to use a mouse! But you'll probably still be arrested at the end of it.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is recruiting for the technical alpha

Microsoft Flight Simulator will be taking off for its first public test flight soon, in the form of its first external technical alpha. Recruitment for the alpha has already kicked off, with members of the Insider programme able to register by filling out a qualification survey.

The Surge 2 gets gloriously gory in its latest trailer
https://www.pcgamer.com/the-surge-2-gets-gloriously-gory-in-its-latest-trailer/
The Surge 2, a game where you kill people and steal their limbs, is a little on the violent side, it turns out. Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive have put together a new trailer to highlight just how violent, slowing the action down to really let you enjoy the flying limbs and spurts of blood. Lovely stuff.

Steam's Discovery update is making things worse for some indie developers

Valve released a Steam update last week that aimed to show people more relevant games and fewer that were already popular. It claimed the changes would result in a more diverse selection of games appearing in the the Recommendation Feed and elsewhere. The impact of the changes isn't immediately obvious when looking at Steam, and some developers claim that it's having the opposite effect.

Black Mesa: Military Early Access Version is now available for download
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/black-mesa-military-early-access-version-is-now-available-for-download/
Modder ‘hecumarine’ has released an early access version of a cool mod for Black Mesa. In Black Mesa: Military you play as one of Hazardous Environments Combat Unit marines, Steven Mills. This Early Access will let you play the first five chapters of the full version, and we highly recommend downloading it.

Modder ‘Teralitha’ has released a brand new version of the Hardcore Difficulty Mode for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. As its title suggests, this mod adds a new difficulty mode that is suited for more experienced players.
This mod completely disables a lot of exploits from the vanilla version of Morrowind. It’s also worth noting that the mod is compatible with Morrowind Rebirth. However, the modder suggests avoiding any of their addon.esp (except for the mercenaries add-on) as they overlap with some of its changes.
>> Get it from Nexus Mods.

And we went full circle. Daymare 1998 is a horror game that was heavily inspired by the classic Resident Evil games. This indie title has just come out on Steam, and there is a demo that you can download. Furthermore, there is already a mod that allows gamers to play as its protagonist in Resident Evil 2 Remake.
(...)
Ironically, the following mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake is perhaps the best way via which players can experience Daymare 1998. And I’m saying this because Daymare 1998 is an indie game, full of shortcomings. This mod basically replaces Leon (Police) & Hunk with Liev.

Tuesday news, part two:

Capcom producer says Project Resistance is 'survival horror at its core'
https://www.pcgamer.com/capcom-producer-says-project-resistance-is-survival-horror-at-its-core/
'Project Resistance was revealed last week as a team-based spinoff of the Resident Evil series.
Fans of the series weren't universally thrilled with the concept. Some, such as in this Reddit thread, are unhappy that it's not a full-on Resident Evil game, while others may simply be mindful of what happened with the previous multiplayer Resident Evil game, Umbrella Corps. But Capcom producer Matt Walker defended the game on Twitter, said that Capcom needs to do more than simply recycle existing ideas if it wants to remain relevant.

Part of the fun of every loot-based game is finding out how to exploit the system for better gear, faster, and Borderlands 3 is no exception. Players have discovered a location that spawns a guaranteed Loot Tink, or the equivalent of a bandit treasure goblin, that spits out legendary gear by the gobful. It's also extremely easy to find and farm, each run lasting about five minutes.
