Trailer comes out for Deus Ex: Mechanical Apartheid.



Zero gameplay footage, seems more appropriate for a movie.

Lots of Overwatch porn is being hit with DMCA takedowns on various major websites.

In one case one of the animators received a notice from PornHub of this, where the DMCA was requested not from Blizzard but Irdeto, a digital security company which works with various corporations. PC Gamer alleges that Blizzard is in fact responsible for Irdeto's actions, primarily because a lot of the animations use models ripped directly from the game as opposed to replicas.

Now intellectual property isn't my strong suit, but it seems counter-intuitive. I guess the real question is if said animators are making money off of it. To my knowledge in-game models can be copyrighted, which may be the reason for the DMCA takedowns.

Either way I think it's a futile effort; like the Streisand Effect this will only spur on more porn as a counter-attack.

Trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon set in a Hawaiian Islands-inspired region.

Pretty interesting. It seems that the last series of games are exploring more diverse locales. X & Y was inspired by France, Black & White New York City, and so on.

XSEED is apparently going to localize the next Akiba's game. While I loved Akiba's Trip (the last one they Localized for PS3, Vita and then PS4 and Steam) i'm not super sure about the change in direction. Call me a perv but I loved the whole clothes stripping combat and using common household items as weapons. It was just super goofy fun

I've been debating whether or not to get that on Steam, but the major things holding me back are

1.) my friends will see it in my Library

and

2.) I heard mixed things about the gameplay elements. The game may be funny, but I want to have fun playing it too.

Never fear... my friends know full well i'm a massive Weeb.

As for the gameplay elements, they're a bit tricky and stiff at times when it comes to the combat but once you got it all figured out then it's pretty fun.

Couple of neat-o (in my opinion) Pre-E3 stuff

1. http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/06/06/e3-2016-saints-row-developer-announces-agents-of-mayhem-a-ign-first
Volition announces Agents of Mayhem. There isn't much gameplay to be seen outside of screen shots but i'm a big lover of Saints Row and their style of Open World games so color me interested.

2. http://www.polygon.com/2016/6/6/11868180/dead-rising-4-leak-images-e3-2016
Dead Rising 4 has been possibly leaked and apparently stars (MAH BOI) Frank West. There's a couple rumors going around as well such as it taking place in Willamette Mall (where the first game was set) meaning it could be a remake of the first game. But if that is true then more than likely it'll be an Xbone exclusive unless somehow it gets to come to PS4 and possibly Pc... even with how Disastrous the PC port of 3 was...
And now the Frank West Rap because I fucking LOVE this series

We'll be fighting an enemy that knows nothing ...

That should make it easy.  But remember to pack a sweater.

Ubisoft is going to release a non-fantasy medieval hack and slash called For Honor.

I don't know. Ubisoft has had some bad releases before, but this looks really interesting.

Injustice 2

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Gwent: the Witcher Card Game

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8

EA Star Wars

Final Fantasy XII: the Zodiac Age

Dishonored 2

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

If it makes you feel any better, I work almost entirely from memes. The last GRRM work that I indulged in was a movie called 'Nightflyers'.

Insomniac makes some good stuff, so I have faith for this game.

Mighty No. 9 seems to be crashing and burning. Not everyone hates it of course, but it's not doing anywhere near well.

Two YouTubers running a gambling channel for Counter Strike: Go are in some hot water for shady acts.

They both promoted it while pretending that they're unaffiliated.

It's also bad because apparently a huge base of said gambling site are underage players. Legally speaking it's not gambling because direct money isn't being exchanged, they're still making a profit off of it.

And Steam may be in trouble for allowing it to occur on their platform.
