|Microsoft couldn't top the classic Intellimouse design "anything we tried... just made it worse."|
Added: 04.07.2018 6:29 | 1242 views | 0 comments
Microsoft has brought back its old Intellimouse design after around ten years in the wilderness, releasing the new Classic Intellimouse. So, what’s changed? Design-wise... nothing. In fact Microsoft actually used the original Intellimouse 3.0 CAD files from 2002 to manufacture the brand new rodent.
It was the only way Microsoft could “really pay the right respect and build the right product,” Simon Dearsley, the devices design director at Microsoft, told me when I spoke to him about the new mouse. We also got to talk about what’s changed, and why now is the perfect time to bring back one of the most iconic old-school gaming mice from the beforetimes, the long, long ago.
Check out our pick of the on the planet right now.
“Actually, the only reason we stopped selling it sometime in the late 2000's,” explains Dearsley, “was because the original chipset supplier that supplies the sensor actually end-of-lifed the sensor platform. And, at the time, I think the company’s priorities were a little bit different and so we just decided to end-of-life the product.”
But with the huge interest in the Intellimouse design it’s now time to bring it back, most especially with the number of fans the mouse has in the Chinese gaming market.
“We did know that clones of it, and copies of it, are being sold in pretty large volumes in China, because there is a huge gaming market over there,” says Dearsley. “We just thought it was an interesting time for us to do something with our legacy and celebrate the technological changes that we've made in mice technology since then.”

There is going to be an annoucement today and a crowdfunding campaign on fig. Looks like one of press sites broke the news a little early.
You play as the same character and there will be save imports. Looks like Eothas is back and pissed. Plot sounds a lot like Mask of the Betrayer.

|Destiny 2 classes - your full guide to all the subclasses and abilities|

Destiny 2 classes are the foundation of your character and campaign. Bungie’s solar system is home to three core classes: Titans, Warlocks, and Hunters. There are subclasses within these main roles, meaning there are both broad and fine strokes in regards to how you build your character. Want to know what those are? We’ve got the full lowdown on every subclass, plus details on the new Destiny 2 Forsaken supers and subclass paths.
Each subclass has three core abilities that will recharge over time: a grenade, a class ability, and a melee power (you'll always be able to make a melee attack, but it'll have an additional effect when your melee power is charged).
Lock and load with our favourite .
Each subclass also has a unique and devastating 'super' ability on a much longer cooldown, and a choice of two perk trees, which will further modify all these powers. Destiny 2 features three brand-new subclasses, which join three reworked ones returning from the original, and another three from The Taken King expansion. That's right - Stormcaller, Sunbreaker, and Nightstalker are all in Destiny 2.
The Destiny 2 classes are:
|Is Beyond Good and Evil 2 more ambitious than Star Citizen?|
Added: 04.07.2018 3:33 | 1586 views | 0 comments
Red Bull Games Australia takes an in-depth look at Beyond Good and Evil 2 from a behind closed doors session at this year's E3 and throws in some comparison to another major space title full of similar ambition in Star Citizen and writes:
"Theres an impressive video that was released a while ago showcasing the true geometry and real-time finesse required to understand, and master, Star Citizen, of a planetside entry, ship-landing and then third-person exit into a fully populated interior. And theres no question this was an impressive display of raw design and technology. But the content we saw behind closed doors at this years E3 for Beyond Good and Evil 2 easily trumped that. Largely because Beyond Good and Evil 2 isnt taking its space-faring overly seriously. Theirs is an action-RPG sci-fi future where rules can be written on-the-fly to accommodate artistic vision and fun gameplay..."

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 release date? CD Projekt Red revealed loads of Cyberpunk 2077 trailers and gameplay info at E3 2018 - here are all the latest details.
For years we waited with no sign of a new Cyberpunk 2077 trailer and gameplay details, but CD Projekt Red has revealed masses of new details on the upcoming futuristic RPG, and all at once. Their huge E3 2018 demo showed that Cyberpunk 2077 is the answer to perhaps the biggest game development question of the decade: how do you follow up something like The Witcher 3? Polish RPG powerhouse CD Projekt Red is looking to replicate its successes with Eastern Europe’s beloved fantasy book series by turning its hand to the futuristic world of Cyberpunk 2077.
While we wait for CD Projekt Red’s next masterpiece, check out the adventures you could be having in the meantime with our list of the .
CD Projekt Red’s videogame is an adaptation of the Cyberpunk 2020 pen-and-paper game. It's a first-person RPG set in a gritty, vast future metropolis known as Night City. Like The Witcher 3, it is an adult story, touching on drugs, violence, and social politics. It’s almost certainly going to be the most talked about game of whatever year in which it finally releases. Here’s everything we know about Cyberpunk 2077.

|Fortnite's rifts have swallowed up the Tomato Town mascot|

Update, July 4: The Fortnite rifts are growing. R.I.P. Tomato Town mascot
Fortnite fans will be acutely aware that there’s an enormous, reality-defying rift hovering in the sky above the game. Since it appeared on Saturday afternoon, that initial rift has grown, and a separate crack has splintered off from the main fissure.
But as well as those huge cracks in the sky, other, smaller rifts are appearing across Fortnite's map. One showed up at Motel, while another formed at Lonely Lodge, swallowing up the sign welcoming players to the rural site on the eastern edge of the map.
Check out our list of the on PC.
Now, a third rift has appeared, this time at Tomato Town. The small location is arguably most 'famous' for its enormous pizzeria, which I struggle to believe can have been a sustinable business. There's just one house in Tomato Town, but that building is serviced by a gas station, a Taco shop, and the biggest damn pizza place you've ever seen. On its roof, the restaurant features an enormous statue of its mascot, a smiling anthropomorphic tomato. Or at least, it used to.
The Rift has swallowed Tomatohead whole, leaving an empty plinth where the fruity mascot used to dwell. It's a sad sight, and one that players have quickly turned into a memorial, with several peaceful gatherings taking place overnight. You can check out a before and after of the restaurant in the tweet below.

AusGamers has reviewed Unravel Teo and writes:
In the grand scheme of pushing a little sentient piece of wool through a level and a number of challenges; memories and what they ambiguously mean to someone who worked on the game, or some highbrow lost concept of connection is not something that drives me, or many others, through a game. Purpose and reward for effort is what does that, and so far the Unravel series hasnt unraveled that little design nugget...
