Release dates: every game confirmed for 2017

2017 is shaping up to be a strong year for new releases, book-ended by a new Resident Evil in January and ending with a new Red Dead Redemption sometime later in the year. In between there’s the return of massive franchises such as Mass Effect, console exclusives like Detroit: Become Human, and the continued vibrancy of cool releases from the indie scene.

We’ve put together this list of games for every title confirmed for PS4, Xbox One and PC over the coming 12 months, as well as the addition of some of the more interesting or high-profile releases on other platforms, including those for Nintendo’s new console, the Switch. We’ll also note all major DLC updates for the biggest games too.

We’ll update this throughout the year, juggling dates as games are announced and delayed, and as others are nailed down to specific months of the year. Now, what are you looking forward to playing?

January

Crafting in Mothergunship

1 Share

Hello Mothergunship fans!

This is Joe Mirabello, Project Director for Mothergunship. Today I wanted to talk a little bit about crafting in Mothergunship.

Crafting systems and first-person shooters have a long history together, however the FPS genre is, by and large, saturated with some very serious, often grim, games...and that affects the tone of the crafting systems found within. Generally these systems are limited in their scope, beholden to realism, and reliant on fairly limited alterations to base mechanics.

Mothergunship is, by contrast, a game built around presenting the player with crazy, over-the-top situations; hundreds of dangerous things flying around...explosions everywhere..intimidatingly large bosses with terrifying ways to kill you.... So, it made sense to us to create a crafting system that encouraged the player to respond in kind; with craziness.

Crafting in Mothergunship is, at it’s base, a system with more in common with space-simulators than other FPS games. It’s a modular, component based system with sockets that plug into one another in any shape the player can imagine. The only limit? Barrels must face forward (yeah, we tried without that limit...it sounds more fun than it actually was). Otherwise, the player is given a bunch of puzzle pieces to fit together however they like. Generally, there are three main “types” of pieces; barrels, splitters, and caps. Barrels are obvious--they shoot things. Splitters tend to have multiple exit sockets, allowing you to branch your gun into strange shapes. Caps are where the magic happens, as they affect the behaviors of the gun itself.

Here’s a simple example: The player connects a splitter piece to their gun with 3 exit sockets. Then they connect two barrels to the gun, let’s say a laser and a chaingun. So now they have a gun that shoots bullets and lasers at the same time. To the third exit socket of their splitter, they connect a Cap that adds bounce to all barrels. Now they have a gun that shoots lasers and bullets that bounce all around the room, causing chaos.

Now imagine if you had ten barrels. Or imagine if you had Caps that added special damage, spread, shotgun effects, and other crazy effects...and now add in dual wielding. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to see the magnitude of choices we give the player here.

However, with great power comes great responsibility. While players have unlimited ammo in Mothergunship, every shot you fire drains a little bit of a rechargable energy meter. The crazier gun a player makes the faster that bar drains. So, sure, build that 10 barrel rocket-launcher..but be aware you might only be able to fire it once every few seconds...at least in the beginning of the game, before you’ve upgraded your player abilities a bit. But that’s a topic for another post.

We’ll be talking about that, as well as more details of the crafting menu, in the future. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me on Twitter and share your thoughts or ask any questions. But for now let’s close this blog post with a quick call to action.

If you haven’t signed up for the Mothergunship mailing list, please do so. In the future, that’s how we will contact people about closed betas and such. Also, please wishlist the game on Steam!, like us on Facebook, and, of course, follow us on Twitter. We’re looking forward to sharing more in the future months!

Thank you for reading!

Don't fear the flipside ↦

1 Comment

Over at 512 Pixels, Stephen Hackett comments on a rumor that the OLED screen on Apple’s rumored high-end iPhone might not be able to feature a Touch ID sensor embedded into the front of the screen.

I’m with Stephen—doing an iPhone without any sort of Touch ID seems like a non-starter. But I’m also with Stephen about the prospect of moving the Touch ID sensor to the back of the phone:

Having reviewed and used several Android devices with this setup, I can say with confidence that it would not be the end of the world. There are downsides — mainly, unlocking the phone if its on a table — but the rest of the time, the location is totally fine. In fact, I think I prefer moving my finger over on the back of the back of an Android phone over wrenching my thumb over to the bottom-center of my iPhone.

My reference Android phone is a Nexus 5X, which has a fingerprint sensor on its back side. I really, really like the placement of the sensor there. It fits naturally into how I hold the phone, so I can grab it and touch the sensor with my index finger, and the phone unlocks. Yes, it has drawbacks, but just because a back-side sensor isn’t something Apple has done before doesn’t mean it’s not any good. In fact, many people might find it a superior experience.

‘Anarchist’s Tool Chest’ Back in Black

1 Comment

ATC_SquareWe’ve just ordered our ninth (!!) printing of “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” and will return to the black cloth cover. The red cover was a one-time thing for the fifth anniversary of the book’s release.

It might also please/vex you to know that I am working on the third installment of the “Anarchist” woodworking series. Some rejected titles: “The Anarchist’s Moist Lederhosen,” “Pluck Your Magic Twanger, Froggy” and “Fully Orbed Spheres of Creativity That will Bring Sanity and Wellbeing Back to Make Contented Those Living with the Sense of Lostness.”

The winning title will remain a secret for a while.

— Christopher Schwarz
