Gaming’n Tech News #100 - Spooky Centennial Edition

What Are We Playing This Week?

Over the past couple of week’s, I’ve been spending most of my game time on my old Atari consoles with some Switch play. I picked up Super Mario Party and had a blast playing it with the family. It’s the 2nd Mario Party game I’ve played, the other one being on the WiiU. If you have a Switch and have kids, it’s a no-brainer. I also played some Manticore - Galaxy On Fire (Switch).

How about you?

Here’s why Pac-Man should probably not celebrate Halloween:

Sega’s House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn Lands In Arcades - Just in time for Halloween, the return to the most popular zombie shooting franchise in gaming is here. The cabinet is quite detailed, guaranteed to stop people in their tracks (and give them a jump). Dave & Busters was the first chain to purchase the game, scooping up all of the first wave of units. If you happened to drop by a D&B this past weekend, you probably saw it; other locations will likely be getting it by the end of the year. Sega has also announced a new ATV racing game that will be at the IAAPA 2018 trade show a month from now, ATV Slam.

Left Alive Release Date Announced - If you’re looking forward to Square Enix’s “answer” to Metal Gear Solid, then you now have a release date - 3/5/19. Unfortunately, the trailer posted to YouTube this week claims “gameplay,” but it doesn’t show it. It uses in-engine renders to pull off the typical Square Enix gaslighting. :/

Anabis Expansion Launching This Week For Battlestar Galactica Deadlock (PC) - I had no idea that there was a Battlestar Galactic game out there right now, so consider this two piece of news for me. Here’s a trailer of the base game, which has a little Master of Orion vibe to it. More details about the expansion can be found here.

What If The Cold War Went Hot? Find Out With Armored Brigade - We’re going all PC Master race today 😛 If you like RTS games with modern military equipment, then you might find this one worth checking out. It is releasing “sometime this fall.”

Your Favorite Halloween Game? - Since this might be the last gaming thread we’ll run between now and Halloween, let’s talk scary games! Which one is your favorite? I find it hard to pick - growing up, I enjoyed the thrill from games like Hunt The Wumpus (TI 99/4A), Haunted House (Atari 2600), Dracula The Undead (Atari Lynx) and Alien Vs. Predator (Atari Jaguar; yeah, yeah, I’m all Atari, all-the-time :P); I really liked Resident Evil 4 on the Wii when I was a bit older and F.E.A.R. was a good ride to play alone in the dark with headphones on. The most unsettling game I recall playing though was Clock Tower 3 on the PS2. I had never played any of the other Clock Towers so went into that one blind…quite intense by what I recall. Although it has been over 10 years since I played that, so perhaps it would be time to find it again and give it another round.

Space Pr0n Of The Week: A Big, Beautiful Galaxy - Here’s NCG 1672, a galaxy that isn’t well-known out there as in good part it is 60 million light years away, so it gets stuck with a generic listing. At 75,000 light-years across, it’s smaller than our own galaxy, but it’s quite photogenic.
