Speedrun World Records finds the best playthroughs for your enjoyment

Speedrunning has long been a part of gaming culture, but getting into it can be intimidating. Even just watching can be difficult as videos make it hard to sift through. Speedrun World Records makes the process easier.

Blizzard sees you: ‘Overwatch’ loot boxes will drop less duplicates

In a new developer update posted today, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan announced that the game's loot boxes will have a much lower chance of dropping duplicate items in the future.

"One of the things that we're going to do is drastically reduce the rate of duplicates that you'll get out of any loot box," Kaplan said while wearing a D.va jersey. "We think this will be immediately evident and extremely significant for all of our players and we think it's going to feel fantastic."

This will hopefully solve the super annoying problem of opening loot boxes during events, getting excited when you see a legendary-level item in there, and then being incredibly disappointed when it turns out you already have that skin. Read more...

The ambitious ‘Beyond Good and Evil 2’ shows off a beautiful game engine

Ubisoft revealed Beyond Good and Evil 2 at E3 last week, but only gave a select few people a behind-the-scenes glimpse at some of the actual gameplay. 

For those of us who weren't lucky enough to have that opportunity, the game's creative director Michel Ancel gave the world a short tour of a very small chunk of Beyond Good and Evil 2 on YouTube today, showing off a jet-packing, pizza-delivering ape, a couple different space ships, and a piece of one of the game's planets. It's certainly enough to get hyped for.

At the end of the video, Ancel promised more gameplay videos to come, so this is just the beginning of Beyond Good and Evil 2 teases. Read more...

Steam Summer Sale is back and some huge games are super cheap

TwitterFacebook

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will cost you just $4 as one of the highlighted deals during Steam's annual Summer Sale.

The (almost) two-week sale kicked off on Thursday, June 22, and will be running until July 5 at 1 p.m. ETMordor is the first day's big highlight, but it's hardly alone.

Also in the "omg how is it so cheap?" category are Mafia III ($14.79), most of the Call of Duty series (many titles — including the two latest — are half off), and South Park: The Stick of Truth ($7.49). 

Prices tended to shift around "flash" discounts and daily deals during Steam's annual sale events in the past, but that all ended with the summer event in 2016. Pricing remained fixed throughout the length of the event, and that's likely to be the case for this one as well. Read more...

Not to detract from the cool tech creation here, but programmer Abhishek Singh's augmented reality reimagining of Super Mario Bros. World 1-1 for HoloLens isn't even the craziest thing about this video. That honor goes instead to the total indifference expressed by every pedestrian in New York's Central Park.

How do you witness a spectacle like this and just keep on walking? If I came across a man dressed like a video game plumber and wearing a future-tech headset in midtown Manhattan, you can be damn sure I'd stop to see what he's doing.

Singh's rebuilt version of World 1-1 isn't a perfect replica, largely because Super Mario Bros. was never built to be played in a 3D space. Instead of trying to climb imaginary block hills or leap across deadly drops, Singh simply walks around them. Read more...
