WHERE'S WALLY-STYLE FINDING GAME HIDDEN FOLKS OUT NEXT WEEK
http://www.pcgamer.com/wheres-wally-style-finding-game-hidden-folks-out-next-week/
I have been eagerly awaiting the release of Hidden Folks, a Where's Wally-esque game about combing through scenes in order to find people hidden from view. The major differences between this and Where's Wally/Waldo are the absence of colour, the astonishing mouth-noises, and the fact that each scene is interactive. You'll pull at blinds, open doors, and prod at bushes to find the folks obscured in each beautifully illustrated stage. While you do so, the scene's inhabitants will mill about, and cars and buses will pass by on the monochrome roads. It's rather lovely.

>>I thought the books were called "Where's Waldo" in English, or was it only in the US?

 

No i remember them being called Where's Waldo too (Here in Ireland). I never even heard of Where's Wally O_o .

Here in Spain it was Wally, because Waldo sound way to weird and strange (sorry for those called Waldos), but I thought it was Waldo in English countries. That's why I got surprised when I read Wally in that article from an english based site.

Maybe the article author isn't english?

*checks out*

Tom Sykes... he does sound quite english to me (and now I wonder if he's somehow related to the british rider Tom Sykes)

JUDGE DREDD AND OTHER 2000 AD CHARACTERS CAN NOW BE LICENSED BY NEW DEVELOPERS
http://www.pcgamer.com/judge-dredd-and-other-2000-ad-characters-can-now-be-licensed-by-new-developers/
2000AD is far better known in the UK than it is in the US, but a few of its stars—particularly Judge Dredd—have made something of a splash over here. That's a situation that publisher Rebellion is apparently looking to change and capitalize on. As reported by Bleeding Cool, co-founder Jason Kingsley said at the company's recent 40th anniversary event that it will begin licensing its library of characters to other game developers.

http://www.pcgamer.com/work-on-remastered-bards-tale-trilogy-has-reportedly-stopped/
One of the backer rewards for the 2015 Kickstarter for The Bard's Tale 4 was the original Bard's Tale trilogy—Bard's Tale, Destiny Knight, Thief of Fate—updated for modern machines by Olde Skuul, the studio founded by Bard's Tale 3 programmer and designer Rebecca Heineman. But a recent status update posted on inXile's forums says that plan has been put on hold, because Old Skuul has stopped working on it and doesn't seem likely to resume.

 

HALO WARS 2 PHYSICAL RELEASES CANCELED IN NORTH AMERICA
http://www.pcgamer.com/halo-wars-2-physical-releases-canceled-in-north-america/
THQ Nordic announced in January that it had struck a deal with Microsoft to release a swanky boxed edition of the upcoming Halo Wars 2. Two of them, actually: a standard release and an "Ultimate" edition, with the season pass and the "enhanced" Halo Wars: Definitive Edition included. But it recently came to light that the plan has changed somewhat, and that North American gamers won't be able to get their hands on them unless they order from overseas.

>>Reading the article, it's because MSoft has decided to cancel the physical edition in NA, not the new THQ.

 

WALK A WIENER DOG AS A WIENER IN THE TWO-PLAYER GENITAL JOUSTING UPDATE

PHANTOM HALLS IS A STYLISH SQUAD-BASED SHOOTER THAT COMBINES WORMS WITH SPELUNKY
http://www.pcgamer.com/phantom-halls-is-a-stylish-squad-based-shooter-that-combines-worms-with-spelunky/
If a game cites Spelunky as an influence, I'm bound to be interested. If it throws Worms into that mix, then I'm likely to be very intrigued. Against its lovely-looking 3D papercraft aesthetic, Phantom Halls bills itself as an "action-packed survival adventure" whose squad-based makeup and multi-functioning characters promises just that. "It's a real-time Worms with the procedurally generated chaos of Spelunky," says developer Incendium.

Where's Wally is by an English Author and Americans changed it to Waldo when it was published in the US. Dunno why though :)

So it's Wally everywhere in the whole except the US?

I wonder why they changed it.

Glad to see you back,  JEMC.

 

I see.. ED is still a hotmess. That's the problem when you decide to go online-only. Maintenance cost will be bigger over time. If it's not because of VR, i wouldnt touch this game anymore
