Tom Phillips at Eurogamer published an article yesterday that brought all of this to our attention. While the news hasn't been officially confirmed by Warner Bros, the game's publisher, it appears some information was shared with Eurogamer from within TT Games, the developer behind LEGO Dimensions and pretty much all LEGO games. In an email to the entire studio, Dave Dootson (TT Games' Studio Manager) talked about the title in such a way that seems to acknowledge the project is coming to a close.

Play games and help kids? That's basically the definition of win-win. My trusty old Webster dictionary even says so. Well, okay, maaaybe I wrote it in the margin, but seriously, fundraising doesn't get much better than this.

The original Destiny launched in 2014 across Xbox One, 360, PS4 and PS3. It was reviewed by our own Nick, Jason and Mike who gave it a 4 out of 5 for both the overall game and co-op. They praised its use as a foundation to be improved upon with Nick saying “You need to examine the potential a game has to see if it's worth your almighty dollar. Destiny is ripe with potential and Bungie has rarely not delivered. The first set of content and changes are already live. But based on what's there now, it might be tough to hold gamers' attentions long enough until it reaches that state.”

First up, Halo 3. Originally launched in 2007, it was the first installment from the Halo series to make it to the fairly new Xbox 360 (which originally came out in ‘05). The game featured the aspects that players had grown to love but with the new hardware and Xbox LIVE becoming easier to jump into on the new console, this game was a must have from the start. It marked the end of Master Chief’s (initial) trilogy, but also the start of Halo games being known for pushing graphics, gameplay and online firefights to the limit.

I’m going to preface this review of Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 right now by laying out my perspective because I know just how serious fans can be about soccer. I don’t follow any specific team, I can’t name more than a dozen European players, and I don’t really care for the custom team modes in soccer video games. I’m a...

The way Xbox Game Pass works is that for a monthly subscription fee ($9.99) you are free to download/play any of the titles available via the program. If you let your subscription expire, you will no longer be able to play the games (unless you already own them, that is) until you renew your subscription. You find out more on the official site, which also includes a list of all title available (there's also this hand searchable list on Eurogamer).

The entire presentation is 42 minutes long, and while they talk a lot about the overall features, there's really not any discussion of the co-op here. However, if you're interested in just knowing more about Monster Hunter: World, then there are plenty of goodies. You can see the full intro of the game starting around the 7:35 mark, the character creator in action around 9:45, a little discussion of some of the NPCs you'll encounter around 20:00, and jumping into action and showing off the new Exploration Mode around 23:00. After that, it's a whole lot of monster slaying/hunting.

In addition to all that, Capcom revealed two special editions of the game. The Digital Deluxe Edition "includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter." The Collector's Edition includes all those bonus goodies, swaps the digital edition for a physical copy, a 5" (or 125 mm) Nergigante figure, a download code for a special 10-track soundtrack from the game, and a 32 page hardcover artbook. Pre-orders for these items have not yet gone live, but the Digital Deluxe will retail for $69.99 while the Collector's will go for $149.99. Pre-ordering any version of the game will net you a code for Origin Set Armor and the Fair Wind Charm talisman, which offer improved starting defense and offense stat boosts for the hunter as well as a useful gathering skill. It's worth noting, though, that the bonus digital items you get in the Digital Deluxe/Collector's Edition and the pre-order bonus items will all be made available for purchase separately at some point after the game's release.

This new mode features eight kid friendly songs and also includes a simplified choreography that was developed alongside child development experts. The developers targeted kids in the three to six age range, though I'm sure it'll be a blast for children of all ages.

Bloody Zombies (PC and PlayStation 4) - supports up to four players online, local, or combo! A side-scrolling brawler with a unique mechanic where one of the four players can participate while wearing a VR headset (for the PS4 and PC versions at least). The person wearing the VR headset is able to look around the environment more and see what's in store for the group. The Xbox One version does not support the VR headset, and will be releases next Thursday, Sept. 21.

There are a lot of different systems at play in Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr. In addition to the usual click and loot you find in many Diablo-style aRPGs, Martyr also has a crafting system, a way to generate your own mission using a special currency earned by completing daily quests, a "power level" that affects how easy or difficult a given mission may be, and an even larger concept of completing certain missions or taking certain actions will impact the overall field of play. The biggest problem, so far, is that pieces and components of those things are partially implemented, and none of them are linked up in a meaningful way that makes sense when you fist jump into the game. There's definitely some cool ideas and things going on in Martyr and we're looking forward to see how they develop, but for now, if you're interested in checking out, do know that it's in Alpha and there are some rough edges.
