CIVILIZATION 6: RISE AND FALL REVIEW

Continuing the last couple of Civilizations’ penchant for ‘unstacking’, Civilization 6: Rise and Fall has peeled apart more of the series’ fundamental systems. This time it’s the march through history itself. It’s more dynamic and messy, with civs—as the title promises—rising and falling as they enter new eras and experience Golden and Dark Ages. Yet Civilization has rarely felt this structured or cohesive.

2D-gunman Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2 will be released in early March

Crazy Monkey Studios has decided on the release date of the spectacular 2D action movie Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2. The game will go on sale on Steam on March 2, and later appear on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III will no longer receive updates, and the developer moved on to the next project

Recall that Dawn of War III is a hybrid of RTS and MOBA. The game was released in April 2017 and tried to please long-time fans of Dawn of War, as well as to find new ones using MOBA elements. It did not work: the constant base of players Dawn of War III was recognized too small to continue to invest in the project, and the management of Relic Entertainment and Sega expressed doubt that the updates will be able to solve this problem.

How The Rampage Movie Aims To Avoid The “Video Game Curse”

Video game movies have a track record of mediocrity or worse. While there are some good ones, video game movies, most would probably agree, are generally not very good. One of the next big video game movies coming out is Rampage, which is based on the ’80s game of the same name. In aninterview with IGN, director Brad Peyton (San Andreas) talked about how his new film might break the so-called “video game curse” for movie adaptations.

LittleBits’ Droid Inventor kit is the first STEM toy that works

I’ve been watching STEAM and/or STEAM toys with great interest and great skepticism. While many parents and teachers report great success with programming toys like Cleverbot and whatever this thing is, I’ve found that kids (and parents) I know find many STEM toys to be sterile, boring, and just no fun.

The same held true for the notoriously fiddly LittleBits kits. These kits had little snap-together electronic parts that allowed you to create circuits and connect chips in order to build various projects. You could make synthesizers, Arduino gadgets, and robots and the like but, ultimately, nothing sparked with anyone I knew. Now, I’m pleased to report, LittleBits has finally pulled off STEM magic with the Droid Inventor kit and other manufacturers would do well to emulate them.

NINTENDO LABO HAS BROUGHT OUT THE TOXIC GAMING COMMUNITY

Many hard core Nintendo fans were really excited for yesterday’s Nintendo presentation, and ultimately seemed to leave with a sense of severe disappointment. A lot of great ideas were being floated around the Internet, ideas that would get anyone excited: Animal Crossing making its way to Nintendo Switch, perhaps a accessory kids could use throughout the day, that could be synced to their Switch at night, and so on. So when Nintendo’s video presentation showed cardboard cutouts that utilized the many features of the Joy-Con, NUMEROUS people expressed frustrations online. Ultimately, though, so few took the time to realize who this is for: kids. Nintendo Labo will be a big hit – as indicated by its position as a best selling item on Amazon – and if Nintendo allows people to experiment on their own, there could be some fun for adults as well.
