News has been slowly trickling out about Blood Bowl 2 in recent months but with the release of the recent Farming Simulator 15 we've been assured that's going to change.
Before that happens, catch up on what we know about Blood Bowl 2 so far in a video that covers which races will be in at launch, the singleplayer campaign(s), a potential roster for the new Bretonnian team and a whole lot more.
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One games released so far haven't come close to taking full advantage of those systems' power. That's according to Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Rockstar and 2K Games parent company Take-Two Interactive, who said during a recent presentation that the best is yet to come.
"We have yet to see entirely what the technology can allow," Zelnick said during the 43rd Annual Technology, Media & Telecom Conference this week in New York City. "We've had a couple releases for new-gen, but I don't think we remotely have seen what can be done, and that's super exciting. And that speaks to many of our titles; hopefully all of our titles, ultimately."
Zelnick's comments follow those from PlayStation president Andrew House, who said earlier this week that he's optimistic that E3 2015 next month will deliver games that take fuller advantage of the new consoles.

NVIDIA will have two versions of the NVIDIA SHIELD Console that are being made available to purchase on May 28th. You’ll have the basic NVIDIA SHIELD 16GB Android TV for $199.99 and then the NVIDIA SHIELD Pro 500GB Android TV that runs $299.99. Both versions of the Android TV device will come with a gaming remote controller and an HDMI 2.0 cable. The main difference is the amount of storage space, but keep in mind that both versions have a microSD card slot that can expand storage by 128GB if you wanted to purchase a microSD card to do so. The NVIDIA SHIELD Pro also comes with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! (Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! is planned to be released on SHIELD on July 1st, 2015, but the release date is dependent on the game publisher).
In the open world of Wild Hunt, you chart your own path to adventure. You play as a bounty hunter, a man of the road. You set your own goals and choose your own destinations. Go after the bounty on the head of a nasty monster pestering a village or help a scheming prince who needs a dirty job done -- no matter what style of epic questing you crave, The Witcher will provide it.
With The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt out the door and a big success, you might think that CD Projekt would be looking forward to getting the ball rolling on its next project, Cyberpunk 2077. But CEO Adam Kiciński told Reuters that for now, and for a long time to come, the studio's focus will remain squarely on The Witcher.
"We hope and we are certain that Cyberpunk has even bigger commercial potential. It is too early to talk about it, though," Kiciński said. "This year, and the next one will be the years of the Witcher."

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced that EA SPORTS™ FIFA 16 will feature 12 Women’s National Teams for the first time in franchise history when it launches starting on September 22, 2015 in North America. Women’s National Teams from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, and the United States of America will all represent their respective federations in several FIFA 16 game modes including Kick Off, an Offline Tournament, as well as Online* Friendly Matches.
“Bringing some of the best women’s players and teams in the world to our franchise is a massive event for EA SPORTS, and we are equally excited about bringing millions of fans a new way to play,” said David Rutter, VP and GM, EA SPORTS FIFA. “We’re making sure fans get an authentic experience when playing with Women’s National Teams thanks to our innovative player capture and reference tools, as well as the sophisticated gameplay platform which we will continue to innovate on in FIFA 16.”
From all new player movement and likeness, to realistic animations and attributes, the FIFA development team have authentically recreated 12 of the top-ranked teams in the world. Capturing all new player movement was done with meticulous detail and supported by a motion capture session at EA Canada with four top players from United States Women’s National Team: Sydney Leroux, Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan, and Megan Rapinoe. The players’ movements helped to build new locomotion for women in FIFA 16 including new walks, runs, sprints, and horizontal movement. Soccer Canada also visited EA to provide full-player references captured using the 360 degree body scanning rig – the references were then used to develop new player models. And the mobile headscanning unit travelled to a variety of tournaments and events around the world to capture facial features including hairstyles to ensure players look as realistic as possible in FIFA 16. Players in the game will look and move in game like they do on the pitch when representing their country.
“I honestly can’t believe all of the science and technology behind the game itself, let alone getting us into the motion capture suits and eventually into the game,” said Abby Wambach, world record holder for International goals scored and forward, United States Women’s National Team. “We’re all excited to see ourselves in the game, but even more excited to see the reaction from all of the fans, including the fans of our team that maybe wouldn’t be expecting something like this from EA SPORTS.”
FIFA 16 with Women’s National Teams** will be available when the game launches on Origin™ on PC, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems.
There’s a thread on Gamedev Reddit dating back five months, in which developers complain of missed payments from PC distributor Desura. While some have since replied to say their situations have been resolved, others report they’ve had no reply from the indie-focused Steam competitor.
Desura took to their blog yesterday to address “concerns and fears”.
“We are not refusing to pay you,” said head of developer relations Lisa Morrison. “This is a promise.”

PC Gamer has an article detailing the latest mods in Witcher 3. Some we've already mentioned, like the fantastic Hunter's config. But there's a few other gems out there too, allowing you to tweak weight limits, vendor items, and even the weather:
Once again, modders are hard at work enhancing a game that's only just arrived on PC. The Witcher 3 may be barely a week old, but we've already found a few mods you can use to improve your visuals and tweak your gameplay.
Since The Witcher 3 is still being patched regularly, new patches may render certain mods incompatible. Make sure you read the version notes for each mod before installing them to ensure they're compatible with the latest patch.
The Team behind the popular mod, Project Reality for Battlefield 2 has formed a development studio and is hoping to get additional funds via Kickstarter for developing their first title, Squad, a spiritual successor to the popular mod:
Squad is an online multiplayer first-person shooter that aims to capture combat realism through communication and team play.
Large open maps combined with strong squad cohesion mechanics, vehicles and player-constructed bases create a heart-thumping, visceral gaming experience which mixes organized tactical multi-squad planning with split second decision-making in real world scale firefights, with up to 50 players per side.
Read below to learn more about how we will bring this experience to our backers, as well as a planned feature list for our game.
Thanks in advance for your time and suppor
Super excited about this one. My only real gripe with ARMA 3 is the performance is simply horrid at times. Additional gameplay video after the break.

This fall will be an exciting time for WildStar as we transition to Free-to-Play.
Since launch we’ve listened to all of your feedback and worked hard to improve your game experience. Part of that goal has always been to bring more players in to experience WildStar, and that's what Free-to-Play is all about. Below you will find the valuable information you need to continue to enjoy your time on Nexus. And if you’re new to WildStar, this is a great place to start your adventure.
Here's the link to the FAQ detailing the transition. For any who gave up on the game after launch, you might be surprised with the improvements Carbine has made. The launch was very troubled but Wildstar is a much better game today.
Following the misinformation and defamation spread through a hit-piece on national Dutch television against #GamerGate, various individuals fighting for ethical reform in media institutions took the fight to the “Raad voor de Journalistiek”, or the Dutch Press Council. It’s a board made up of members of the media for the media. The council is headed up by renown Dutch judge Egbert Myer, and said council has decided to take the #GamerGate case seriously.
I was sent various e-mail copies of the letter from the Dutch council and a brief post was made over on the Kotaku in Action sub-Reddit where it was noted that on June 26th, 2015, in Amsterdam there will be a hearing about #GamerGate and its portrayal in a piece on Dutch broadcasting news program EénVandaag, from news outlet AVROTROS, which occurred back on October 24th, 2014. The title of the piece? “Gamergate: Female gamers threatened”.
