I subscribed to Linus Tech Tips and I have mixed feelings. The videos are interesting and entertaining but I struggle to full trust him. He does come off really honest but when every second sentence is a mention of a sponsor I get the feeling that certain conclusions aren't really that honest.

Linus won't hold back on criticizing a product, even if it's a product sponsor. - In saying that, he doesn't get everything right, but that goes for any outlet/reviewer, always good to get multiple opinions.

Digital Foundry had a look at StarCitizen, one of the big PC exclusives coming in the next few years.
They were impressed on it's Technical achievements and even stated it's a "Next Gen game that is playable today."

Yay. PC.

What they're trying to achieve with SC is remarkable and insanely ambitious. I really hope they succeed in reaching that vision.

It's finally Friday! That means that these are the last news of the week:


My Friend Pedro sells almost 500,000 copies, now has more modes
"Aw, that's cute" is not something I thought I'd say about My Friend Pedro but here we are. The slow-motion murder platformer extravaganza now has a 'tiny player mode' and it's properly adorable. This comes as part of the Code Yellow update, which adds 14 modifiers to the skateboard shoot-a-thon including cinematic camera mode, big head mode, adjustable focus speed, and adjustable player speed. There's also an option to hide the HUD and a timer for speedrunners.
According to publisher Devolver Digital's blog post announcing Code Yellow "nearly half a million folks" have bought My Friend Pedro. I can see why—it's a hyper replayable score-attack kill-em-up with a goofy theme, and I had a blast playing it.

Friday news, part two:

The big Fallout 76 Wastelanders update has been delayed to 2020
The big Fallout 76 Wastelanders update that will bring NPCs, companions, a new story quest, dialog options, and more to the post-nuclear online adventure—that will make it more like an actual Fallout game, in other words—has been delayed. It was initially expected to be out this fall, but Bethesda announced today that it's been pushed into early 2020.

Imperator Rome exploit lets you create ancient megacities by stacking thousands of horses
Ancient Rome had a population of about one million people at its height, but due to a balance oversight in classical grand strategy sandbox Imperator: Rome, redditor Vingsii has found a way to make that look like a quaint little village. And it involves horses. Lots and lots and lots of horses.

Borderlands 3 hotfix nerfs one of its most OP guns
Gearbox has rolled out a new Borderlands 3 hotfix that fixes a few bugs and makes a number of adjustments to weapons and Vault Hunters. Top of the list is a major nerf to the Flakker, a legendary shotgun which was widely regarded as one of the best weapons in the game, and which has had its damage reduced by 33 percent and now consumes its entire magazine in one shot.

Team Fortress 2's Halloween 2019 event is live
I used to reinstall Team Fortress 2 every year for Halloween, dressing up in seasonal cosmetics to fight giant enemies like the Horseless Headless Horsemann, Monoculus, and Merasmus, or to just drive around in karts. Those events continue, and Scream Fortress 11 is live right now. As is the case in recent years it's more of a showcase for player-made creations, with two community maps and a host of community-created cosmetics.

Mortal Kombat 11 has three spooky new skins, is about to get a Halloween event
It's the spooky month and every game's racing to get its Halloween content in front of our faces. For mortal Kombat 11 it's the Masquerade Skin Pack, a collection of three new looks for Jade, Liu Kang, and Kabal.

Finally, a Metal Gear for nudists: free action game Sabotage
Top-down action game Sabotage is a bit like Metal Gear, except the 'badass' colonel you're playing as feels more comfortable infiltrating an enemy stronghold in his birthday suit. Taking the Ludum Dare jam theme 'start with nothing' to perhaps its logical extreme, you start Sabotage with, well, with absolutely nothing. Not even any weapons, or clothes.

Destiny 2's new armor system is getting a few important tweaks
Bungie's weekly blog post series—This Week at Bungie—is often dense with information, and this week's This Week is definitely one of those times. The post for this past week includes details about some upcoming events, like Master Nightmare Hunts, planned nerfs to certain Titan and Warlock supers, and some important changes to the Armor 2.0 modding system introduced with the launch of Shadowkeep.

Capcom plans to revive 'dormant IPs' after massive success with Devil May Cry and Monster Hunter
Capcom has been having a pretty good run lately, what with the success of Monster Hunter: World, the remade Resident Evil 2, and Devil May Cry 5. In its latest financial report, Capcom hints that this string of successes is fuelling a push to revive dormant—but still valuable—Capcom properties.

Take a peek at Final Fantasy XIV's new Neir-inspired raid dungeon in this new trailer
The first major update to Final Fantasy XIV since the launch of the Shadowbringers expansion will arrive October 29, and it's bringing a ton of new content to the ever-changing MMO.

The Outer Worlds' launch trailer asks if you want to be the hero or the villain
"Some people want you to be a savior, a shining beacon of hope," a woman's voice intones as the new launch trailer for The Outer Worlds begins. "Those people clearly haven't met you yet." As she finishes, the grimy guitar chords of T. Rex's 20th Century Boy replace the orchestral score, and we're off to the races.
>> Ryuu96 has made a thread about it.

Time to check the available deals at GOG (many) and Steam (also many):

Crusader Kings 2 is now free, which is nice. And so is The Old Gods expansion, but only if you sign up to the Crusader Kings newsletter. You'll get a confirmation email and, pagan deities willing, then receive a Steam Key for the DLC.

GOG has two new sales, and both will last the whole week:

Steam has two daily deals:

Fanatical has four new deals:


Humble's monthly bundle is getting more expensive, but you'll get to choose your games
The Humble Monthly bundle is on the way out, and will soon be replaced by a new service called Humble Choice, which will be more expensive to everyone except existing subscribers.
Currently, the monthly bundle costs $12 for a handful of mystery games, including a couple of early unlocks that are usually better-known titles. Under Humble Choice, you'll be able to choose the games you keep from a wide selection: you'll keep three games if you sign up to the $15/month basic plan, or nine games if you pay $20 a month for the premium subscription. The company hasn't said how big the selection of games you'll pick from will be.
If you're already signed up to the Humble Monthly bundle before the services switch over, which will happen "later this year", then you don't need to worry: you'll keep paying $12 monthly on a "classic" subscription plan, and you'll keep 10 games per month. Any discounts you currently earn by paying for multiple months at a time will carry over. But if you cancel your classic membership after the switch to Humble Choice then you won't be able to get it back, and you'll have to resubscribe as if you were a new customer, the company said in an FAQ.
>> So now you'll pay more to get less, but you'll be able to choose what you get. I don't think it's worth it.

This Unreal Engine 4 tech video showcases next-gen weather/physics effects that will blow you away
YouTube’s ‘koooolalala’ has shared a mind blowing real-time tech video for Unreal Engine 4, showing some of the best Storm effects we’ve ever seen. This video was running in real-time on the PC, and showcases what the next-gen experience that PCs can offer.
The artist used Unreal Engine 4.23 and Speedtree in order to create this scene. Moreover, koooolalala used the VICODynamics and Custom Lens Flare VFX plugins.


BSNES Version 112 available for download to everyone, features overclocking & input latency options
The team behind BSNES, an emulator for Super Nintendo, has released a brand new version of it. Version 112 comes with overclocking and input latency options. It also comes with a HD Mode 7 setting that lets you improve the visuals of all Mode 7 games.
Going into more details, the overclocking settings allow you to increase the frequency of the CPU, as well as the frequency of the SA-1 and Super FX chips. Theoretically, this should address the framerate issues in most of the SNES games.

This mod for The Witcher 3 overhauls and brings 4K textures to Ciri, Yennefer and Triss Merigold
Denroth has released a brand new mod for The Witcher 3 that brings 4K textures to the main female roster of the game. In other words, this mod improves Ciri, Yennefer and Triss Merigold. Alongside the new 4K textures, the modder has also brought some additional improvements.
For instance, this mod features better hair for all three female characters, new eyelashes and better eyes. It also brings enhanced skin pores, better hands and feet, as well as new intimate areas. Denroth has also added new personal textures for each character (which do not affect other NPCs), and maps re-elaborated in high definition. Players can also increase the LOD for these models, though this introduces some bugs.
>> You'll find the instructions to install (and run) this mod, as well as the download link (from Nexus Mods) in the article.

You can now play Watch_Dogs 2 in first-person mode thanks to this mod
HeySlickThatsMe has released a pretty cool new mod for Watch_Dogs 2. As the title suggests, this mod allows you to play Ubisoft’s open-world action adventure game via a first-person perspective.
Do note that this isn’t a perfect mod, and there are numerous issues/glitches with it. Still, the modder decided to release it as there is a lot of demand for this FPS mod.
As HeySlickThatsMe suggests, only the foot camera has been changed. The takedown cameras are still in third-person due to major issues.
>> If you're interested, head to Nexus Mods for it.

New mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim adds monsters, weapons, signs & more from The Witcher games
Talyn82 has released new enhanced versions of the Skyrim Witcher Experience for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. As the title suggests, this mod adds to Skyrim monsters, armors, weapons, signs, potions and books from The Witcher games.
Modder AlphaWolF was responsible for the original Skyrim Witcher Experience mod, and this new version aims to improve upon AlphaWolF’s work. Version 1.2 addresses some of the mod’s issues, such as broken enchantments and broken weapon stats.
Moreover, the enhanced version of Skyrim Witcher Experience fixes flames shooting upward and removes Dawnguard dependacy. In addition, most armors are now craftable. All armors are now upgradeable, as well as Rare and Epic armors.
Furthermore, all alchemists now sell Witcher ingredients. In villages without alchemists, the tavern keepers sell ingredients. Also, Enchantments on all weapons and armors have been fixed.
>> There are two version of this mod, one for the Original Skyrim, and another one for the Special Edition.

Next version of Halo SPV3 will support Ray Tracing for Screen Space Reflections, first screenshots

Alien: Hope for the Future is a new fan Alien game; more faithful to the movies than official games
IIapagokc has released a brand new gameplay trailer for a new fan Alien game, Alien: Hope for the Future. And, ironically, this unofficial fan Alien game feels way better and more faithful to the movies than the official games.
Alien: Hope for the future is an Immersive sim project with elements of survival-horror and tactics. This isn’t a commercial game, meaning that it will be distributed for free to everyone once it’s complete.
Seriously, for an indie attempt, this Alien game looks absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, Disney may shut down this project now that it got the media’s attention. On the other hand, there are rumours suggesting that Disney is about to sell FoxNext, so things may turn favourably for this indie studio.

Untitled Goose Game's honking hero will invade Resident Evil 2 in upcoming mod
Tired of bothering English villagers, the honking star of Untitled Goose Game has turned its gaze on somewhere much more exciting: Resident Evil 2's Raccoon City. Modder ZombieAli is helping with the long journey, and soon you'll be able to replace Mr. X's hulking form with our winged, feathered friend, fedora and all. "And yes, the final version will include extra HONKS," the modder said on Twitter.
The mod is a work-in-progress and ZombieAli didn't say when it will be live, but the short clip below shows you what to expect: a big, barrel-chested goose striding down corridors towards you.

Free demo released for the 3D Sonic fan game in Unity Engine, Sonic Project Hero
Hero has released a playable demo of his upcoming 3D Sonic game in Unity Engine, Sonic – Project Hero. Sonic – Project Hero aims to launch Sonic, Tails & Knuckles into, simply, a fun three dimensional adventure through various locales, to stop Dr. Eggman’s new scheme.
The game aims to introduce new and unique mechanics and mix-n’-match existing ones from the Sonic series, in order to create a fresh experience.
Do note that this demo is a prototype version of the game. As such, you should all temper your expectations. Still, the demo features all of the core gameplay elements. Therefore, it will at least give you an idea of what Hero aims to achieve.

Remedy removes Control’s October 2019 Update & Photo Mode from PC due to always-online bug/issue
Remedy has just removed Control’s October 2019 update and its Photo Mode from the PC due to an issue with the Epic Games Launcher. According to the team, the latest update had an issue that forced players to be online in order to play. That was not intentional and Remedy has rolled back the PC version until it fixes it.
>> So it was not intentional, as they claim, or the backlash has been so negative that they've been forced to remove it.

Cyberpunk 2077 PGA 2019 gameplay footage leaked online [Off-Camera]

>> The videos have been taken down. Still, this could prompt CDProjekt to launch the full 45-minute demo.

Reef Entertainment has showcased Terminator: Resistance at EGX 2019. Thus, you can find below a video showing 27 minutes of gameplay footage from it.

After seven years of development, mind-bending puzzler Manifold Garden is out now
Back in 2015, Tom Sykes tried to explain Manifold Garden (then a few years into development) as "an exploration puzzler set in a 3D world that wraps around on itself", noting that it was inspired by M. C. Escher's Relativity. In fact, Manifold Garden was originally called Relativity. Sykes concluded by noting that it "should be done sometime next year".
One year later he was writing about the "physics-defying puzzle game" again, pointing out that now it had a Steam page with a release date of 2017. That turned out to be untrue as well, and it's only now been released in 2019 (and on the Epic Store, with the Steam version to come in 2020). But it is finally real, and playable—although not in VR. Apparently they tried that during development and the results were as nauseating as you'd expect.
