If you have space for a handful of floppy discs and a lot of disposable income, John Romero wants to make you his pitch - he’s selling the original copy of Doom 2 and he wants you to bid on it.
Check our list of the for more classics.
The starting bid was $10, but the discs are already up to $676 on . Romero announced the sale on Twitter, pledging to sign the discs if the highest bidder requests it.
I think it'd be foolish to suggest that there was little demand for the upcoming Classic Mini: SNES consoles as preorders (which opened up an hour ago) have already sold out.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System is available to pre-order at the ! — Nintendo UK (@NintendoUK) After the micro console was announced yesterday, reports have been running all over the place about various sites opening up their preorders across UK, Europe, and the US. Typical of Nintendo fans, of course, that hasn't lasted long.
One of the minds behind Limbo and Inside has announced the formation of a new Guildford based studio: Jumpship. Their debut project is Somerville, a "sci-fi action adventure" telling the stories of people caught up in the midst of a catastrophe spanning the entire planet. Beyond that, we don't know much else yet. Jumpship has shared an initial teaser trailer for the game and its moody, mysterious setting, underpinned by a composition from Virginia composer Lyndon Holland. Director Chris Olsen had been working on the project since 2014 until subsequently collaborating with Dino Patti, the ex-CEO of Playdead who left the company last year. Playdead, meanwhile, are currently hard at work on their next major project following the launch of Inside. Thanks for your warm reception of INSIDE. Since release, Playdead founder Arnt Jensen and the team have been working on the next adventure. pic.twitter.com/RfejnH39mR — Playdead (@Playdead) 20 January 2017 No word yet on platforms or a release schedule for Somerville, although the studio very much seems to be in the early stages of the game's development. We're intrigued to see more when they're ready!
We’re a couple of years removed from excellent police procedural and mystery game Her Story now, which has given creator Sam Barlow ample time to work on his next project. A tentatively titled - with no link to the original - was teased well over a year ago now, with little news since. Today, it looks like Barlow has kicked off something new.
Here are the ever made.
Those hoping for definitive clarity may be disappointed. Here’s the man’s tweet about day one on a new project:
Fire Pro Wrestling was last seen properly way back in 2012 as an Xbox 360 title, but it’ll be back for a rematch with your thumbs next month as a Steam Early Access title. Developer Spike Chunsoft dropped the bombshell powerslam on Twitter, much to the relief of fans who’ve been waiting ages for news on the game.
Prepare thine wallet, for the God of Games is poised to grant upon us a bountiful videogame harvest, with no genre left untouched. No matter what hungers you, my child, there will be something to satiate that pang, for the Steam Summer Sale is coming.
If cheap isn’t good enough, check out our list of the .
The sale begins in just a couple of days time, at 6pm BST/1pm ET, on June 22. The dates were confirmed by PayPal on that Twitter thing:
To celebrate the console launch of Star Trek Online: Season 13 – Escalation, we’re teaming up with Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios to give some lucky winners a rare ground weapon for the game on Xbox One, the Fluidic Antiproton Wrist Lance. To win, retweet the tweet below and we'll select winners at random: We're giving away 50 Fluidic Antiproton Wrist Lances for Star Trek Online, RT for a chance to win #StarTrekOnline pic.twitter.com/GtAqacnEc6 - This is Xbox (@thisisxbox) June 20, 2017 Fluidic Antiproton Wrist Lance Undine weaponry utilises cohesive antiproton streams to damage foes. These streams are known to sometimes knock their opponents away while dealing additional physical damage. The primary fire of this particular wrist-mounted antiproton lance is similar to those adapted into Assault weapons that use this same energy technology. The secondary fire is radically different however, incorporating something akin to the “focused beam” technology sometimes seen in use on Undine starships. It can charge up a massive blast that will scar the surface of whatever the foe is standing on, sending out antiproton energy ripples that cause additional damage to anything they cross paths with.
