June 4, 2016 Game News Update – Pokemon Protests in China, AMD’s Cheap GPU for VR, Real Life Pong
This week in game news, No Man’s Sky has been delayed, there have been protests over Pokemon in China, AMD unveiled a cheap VR-ready GPU and some great games have been released- all this and more on this week’s episode of Game News Update. If you’re looking for more information on Dejobaan’s next game, Tick Tock Bang Bang, you can find that here– if you’re seeking our first impressions of The Final Station, those can be read here.
If you came here in search of that awesome custom PONG table created by Daniel Perdomo, we have the full video embedded below for your viewing pleasure- in case you’ve not heard of it, what you should know is that it’s a playable PONG game that uses the physics from the video game- with real objects on a table, rather like air hockey.
We caught wind of some neat crowdfunding projects this week, such as Moonlighter, an ARPG that takes after The Legend of Zelda in which you play as a shopkeeper who goes adventuring in dungeons in order to find loot that he in turn sells in his shop to finance future expeditions. It’s a neat concept with some gorgeous art; you can check it out on Kickstarter here.
There’s also Win That War!, an RTS with a retrofuturistic twist. The game is currently in development for Windows and boasts some persistent elements inspired by MMOs- it’s a game that allows for conquest of entire planets, and it’s one that I’m really hoping to see succeed. If you’d like to try it out before buying, you can download a demo from the game’s Kickstarter page.
