Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 Production Still Happening Remotely


For those looking forward to the next chapter of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake, never fear – the team is working on part two remotely.

In an interview The Guardian did with Producer Yoshinori Kitase and co-director Naoki Hamaguchi, they discussed both the responsibilities and the opportunities of remaking the 1997 JRPG classic.

According to Kitase:

”I am pained and saddened to see so many people around the world suffering with the virus and even losing their lives. When we set the release date for the game, nobody could have predicted a global pandemic like this, and the release of the game happening during this unprecedented situation has blindsided us.

At this current time, the team are still making the next game via remote working. Our performance will temporarily drop below 100% efficiency because of this, but I do not think there should be a big impact in the long term. I sincerely hope that Final Fantasy VII Remake can provide those who are forced to endure the stress of living under lockdown a moment of relief and enjoyment in these trying times.”

You can read the full interview here.

Originally released in April for the PlayStation 4, Final Fantasy VII Remake takes place in the city of Midgar. Players follow the story of Cloud Strife, a former member of the shadowy organization Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit, who lends his aid to an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche.

Shadow Warrior 3 Announced


The deadly and clever Lo Wang will make his return in Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital’s Shadow Warrior 3 in 2021.

In this title, Lo Wang and his former employer – turned nemesis – turned sidekick Orochi Zilla will set out to recapture an ancient dragon unwillingly unleashed from its prison. Armed with blades and bullets, our hero must traverse uncharted parts of the world as he tracks down the dark beast and pushes back the apocalypse once more.

You can view a teaser trailer below:

Shadow Warrior 3 – Teaser Trailer

According to Game Director Kuba Opoń:

“We are beyond excited to bring Shadow Warrior fans a completely fresh experience, and we can’t wait to show off the new features we have in store for them. We want to make sure that our fast-paced gunplay sequences, razor-sharp melee combat, and spectacular free-running movement, will get their adrenaline pumping and senses thumping.

But we never forget Flying Wild Hog’s roots and we hope that Shadow Warrior 3 will feel like a homecoming for those fans that have been with us since the beginning. And we can’t wait to introduce new players to Lo Wang, our quick-witted hero with a tongue as sharp as his katana. Shadow Warrior 3 will see him face a threat so huge it may be too big even for him to handle.”

A gameplay trailer will make its debut during this year’s Devolver Direct on July 11 at 12:00pm PT – you can find the Twitch link to the broadcast here. This will be followed by previews, interviews, and more in the coming week.

To go alongside this news, the development team announced that the first two Shadow Warrior games are available on Steam at 75% off during the Summer Sale.

Making Yourself Mentally Strong in a Crisis is Possible

We are living in tough times. While we started off thinking a lockdown is a novelty and having fun with it (Imagine not having to go to the office to work? How cool!), we have settled into the reality where people are away from each other, we are prohibited to gather, and we aren’t allowed to travel. Suddenly, this lockdown has become such a bore and hassle that we have forgotten the fun side of everything. Before, we considered what’s happening like a little inconvenience. After all, we are only asked to stay indoors as our contribution to the world overcoming this crisis. But then, everything has started to lose significance and meaning. What started as a fun and even ideal set-up for most of us working has become something that has affected our mental state, big time.

Since we can’t meet up with friends physically, we’ve lost our rhythm, we can’t blow off steam by engaging in outdoor activities, our stress and anxiety levels have gone haywire. We may be suffering from simple cabin fever, but then, there surely has to be something more to what we’re experiencing now.  What can we do to get back our “sanity”? How can we keep our heads together and come out thriving even when the COVID-19 crisis is through?

Build positive habits

Think of what your life will be like once the world shifts to the “new normal”. Would you still want to wake up at 10 in the morning and go through the rest of your day in pajamas and uncombed hair? Surely not! Continue good habits you’ve had prior to the lockdown, such as your early morning jog and a healthy breakfast after. You will have to tweak some elements of your habits like doing a home workout instead of a jog, but you get the idea. They say you form a habit after doing it for 21 days straight, so if you start developing one now, you should have enough time to make your system get used to it. Before you know it, you will keep on doing the activity without even thinking about it.

The thing is, habits are pretty important right now. They’re a big part of how able we are to cope. More than ever, we need to look after ourselves, mentally, physically and emotionally.

Extend yourself

Nothing can set your head straight then feeling a sense of accomplishment because you have helped another human being. Doing something good for your community doesn’t require you to leave the corners of your home. Check out volunteering opportunities that would usually be posted on social media and see where your skills can take you in making a difference with other people’s lives.

It’s a rare win-win proposition in a bleak landscape: In helping other people get through this crisis, you can help yourself in equal measure. “It’s a way of reframing your existence,” says bioethicist Stephen Post, “getting out from the negative vortex and feeling free to do something that is meaningful.”

Unleash your creativity

Remember the days before the worldwide lockdowns when you thought about an art project and thinking maybe you can go ahead with it only if you had …

Retrowave Review

The 80s were a magical time, and RewindApp wants to take players back to this glorious era with their new title Retrowave. Featuring a fine blend of vaporwave aesthetics with synthwave stylings, should you get up and drive?

Retrowave Review

Retrowave is a game about cruising – nothing more, nothing less. After picking the car of your choosing (which varies by speed, handling, and brake power), one hits the endless stretch of road and rides as far as the road takes them. Points (and thereby money) can be earned by going fast, driving on the wrong side of traffic, and nearly missing other cars, but the title is meant to be more of a trance-like experience than an adrenaline rush of speed. That’s not to say players will be slowing down though – the game actually rewards you for hitting speeds greater of 100km/hr. Much like life, there is a little bit of something for everybody.

Just be warned that those endless drives end quite quickly if you bump into another car. Early on, this doesn’t seem to be that much of a problem. However, some stretches of the game are rife with nasty traffic jams, and trying to get ahead without scraping paint is an absolute pipe dream. The moment that happens, the game is over.

It’s just a shame that there’s not a ton of variety at play here. Retrowave features four different modes that vary up lanes of traffic, offer up time attacks, and make your car into a speed bomb, but it all runs together sooner rather than later. The same goes for the 12 tracks that players can choose from – although the outrun aesthetic shines brightly with stages like “Space Trip,” “Summer Chill,” and “Vaporwave,” the lack of variety in the layout of each stage means that these worlds only differ aesthetically.

To keep players going, each run earns players a bit of cash. The grind for unlockables is real – players can earn new cars (including Tesla’s very own Cybertruck), new paint jobs, new wheels, and additional mechanical improvements. It’s pretty easy to unlock the substantial stuff (especially when choosing a mode like Time Trial), but most of this content should have been unlocked from the get-go. Variety is the spice of life, and Retrowave can use an infusion of variety. There is a way to adjust the HUD, field of view, use the horn, or even use the indicators, but they feel like frivolous additions compared to the meat of the package.

On the bright side, the synthwave sounds powering this adventure are a definite plus that add to the game. Though Aries Beats, Stevia Sphere, Eva, Three Chain Links, and Nightstop might not have the same clout as Carpenter Brut or Com Truise, the music here is still solid enough to keep players positively mesmerized.

Retrowave’s got the looks and the sounds that make the outrun aesthetic so great, but the gameplay manages to be a little too one-note for its own good.

This review of Retrowave was done on the PC. The game was purchased digitally.

How To Unlock More Skins In Iron Man VR

How To Unlock More Skins In Iron Man VR
Custom Deco’s are skins you can apply to Iron Man’s suit. This guide on How To Unlock More Skins In Iron Man VR lists all of the different skins available on the console in the game, alongside details on the objectives and challenges you must meet to unlock each skin.

Custom Deco’s are a visual only upgrade. They change the skin and design of the Iron Man suit but they do not offer any additional benefits. They all feature the same customization slots and weapon capabilities as any other armor set. They are purely skin upgrades, but some of them are pretty cool.

How To Unlock More Skins In Iron Man VR

Almost all of the skins not unlocked via pre-order are unlocked by completing certain challenges. Some require multiple missions in order to complete, such as Hostile Takeover, others can be done in a single mission if you are skilled or lucky enough to pull of the requirements. The loading between the different skins on the console can be quite lengthy and the challenges are easy to forget, so here’s a simple list you can follow in-game to unlock as many skins as you want.

Impulse
Unlocked automatically

Ombre
Simultaneously destroy two enemies with Repulsors, one with each hand.

Scarlet Storm
Destroy 6 enemies with a single Auxiliary Weapon shot.

Hostile Takeover
Destroy enemies with Auxiliary weapons (250 enemies total are needed)

Camouflage
Destroy 2 enemies with a single rocket punch

Hornet
Destroy enemies with melee attacks (50 enemies total are needed)

Origin Armor
Unlocked via pre-order

Vintage Armor
Unlocked via pre-order

Silver Centurion
Unlocked via pre-order

Ultra Violet Armor
Unlocked via pre-order

Iron Patriot
Unlocked via pre-order

We’ll update the guide if we discover more skins that are available to unlock later in the game.

Xbox Series X Optimized Program Detailed


Discover how development teams are optimizing titles for the Xbox Series X with the latest Xbox Wire post.

Titles that are Xbox Series X Optimized take full advantage of the capabilities of the Xbox Series X. This applies to both new titles that have been built natively using the system’s development environment, along with previously released rebuilt specifically for the console.

Producer Jacek Zięba of Bloober Team (Blair Witch) spoke about optimizing their upcoming title The Medium for Xbox Series X with Xbox Wire Editor in Chief Will Tuttle. He mentioned that his team is able to develop the game the way they have always envisioned it, both from a graphical and gameplay standpoint. He also mentioned that the SSD of the console will allow the development team to create a more cinematic and atmospheric experience.

The development team will also make use of a 4K resolution and DirectX Raytracing as enhancement areas for The Medium. According to Zięba, the resolution will showcase the art style and environment of its spirit world, while the Ray-tracing will add to its atmosphere.
