With another Ludum Dare game jam starting tonight, AAGH Games – our game development wing – is revving up to enter once again. This will be the third straight Ludum Dare for AAGH Games and as is customary for us, we will be broadcasting it live on our Twitch channel. When the theme is unveiled tonight at 9 PM EDT (click here to translate that to your local time), we will update this post with the theme and any other relevant information as it comes along. If you’re interested in game development, you can tune in and hang out.
Last night was launch night for Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, and in a turn of events no one could have possibly foreseen, it was a bit of a bear. We did a live stream last night, fighting through multiple patching issues and launcher resets, after over 70 minutes we finally got to actually play the game. Since then we’ve put in a few hours of play, so let’s have an early First Opinion look at Grand Theft Auto 5 PC.
Grand Theft Auto comes out at midnight, April 14th BST. Here in the eastern United States, where we’re located, that’s 7 PM EDT, and we’re going to do an AAGH Plays live stream in celebration of it. Come watch for the laughs, the fun, the mayhem and the likely broken game servers. With extra commentary courtesy of Will of Chaos is Gaming, it’s sure to be a blast. You can watch it below when it goes live, or follow our Twitch.tv channel to get an email alert.
Update: The stream is now over! Thank you to everyone who watched.
It has been official for a while now, but Grand Theft Auto 5 is indeed coming to PC on April 14th. Many, myself included, have already preloaded the game (at 60.4 GBs, I’m glad they gave us plenty of prep time), so it’s just a matter of time before the game goes live and PC gamers get let loose on Los Santos. Here at AAGH, we are preparing for the launch with a new GTA Online crew and a launch-night livestream.
Last time we checked in on Dragon Ball Xenoverse, I was preparing to wage war on all of Saiyan kind in the name of Humanity. I had lined up my targets – Radditz, Nappa, Vegeta and Goku – and was preparing to do battle with them in one-on-one combat. The goal: to tear down the Saiyan-based DBZ power monopoly. Now it is time for battle, so let’s see how I did.
After an initial delay from a simultaneous launch with current-gen platforms to January, and then its subsequent delays to March and then April, it looks like Grand Theft Auto 5 is finally going to come to PC on April 14th. One indicator of that is the finally-released PC trailer on Rockstar’s website, which shows a version of the game that looks like it will be the definitive visual showcase for GTA5.
I have been an anime fan for a long time now, and one of the first series I got hooked on back in my school days was Dragon Ball Z. At the time I started watching the show had been airing for some time and was in the middle of the Frieza arc, so my sister and I would try and figure it out to no avail. It eventually became far more fun not knowing what was going on as we would ascribe random motives and traits to the characters and basically made up our own storyline. After eventually watching it from the start I have to say that our made-up story was at least as fun and made just about as much sense as the real thing. I haven’t seen an episode of DBZ (or read any of the manga for that matter) in probably 10 years now, so when Dragon Ball Xenoverse launched in February I figured I would pick it up for nostalgia’s sake. What started as a lark has became a personal crusade – a crusade against Saiyans.
There are only a handful of first person shooters that have evolved and moved forward the FPS genre since its birth with 1991’s Wolfenstein 3D. Games like Doom (multiplayer and modding), Quake (true 3D environments), and Half-Life (storytelling and immersion) are some of them. Despite its name Evolve is not one, and that’s actually just fine because that is not what it sets out to do. Instead, Evolve sets its sights on giving players a fun, unique, asymmetrical shooter experience. It has its flaws, but overall Evolve does just that.
