Hideo Kojima finally accepted his Industry Icon award at The Game Awards tonight, and the renowned Japanese dev took the opportunity to show off an amazing new Death Stranding teaser.
The new Death Stranding teaser trailer clearly showed that Guillermo Del Toro, one of Kojima's most beloved friends and leading horror director, will be feature in the game as a character. We also got our first look at what appears to be the game's sinister antagonist, who is played by the iconic Mads Mikkelsen. So that gives us three major stars joining the cast of Death Stranding: Guillermo Del Toro, Mads Mikkelsen, and Norman Reedus, who plays the principal protagonist.
The footage itself gave us a good look at what to expect from the game, as the black ink appears to be a kind of malefic infection that resurrects the undead. Mikkelsen is apparently a general who leads a platoon of horrible zombie skeletons, and Mikkelsen actually had these weird sparking black tentacles that wriggled everywhere. Keighley affirms that the Death Stranding reveal was running at full 4K on a PlayStation 4 Pro.
UPDATE: Duke Nukem isn't getting his own new game: the announcement is much more meager than we thought. Gearbox actually is remastering Bullestorm in a "Full Clip Edition," and if you pre-order the remaster you can play through the entire game as Duke Nukem himself. Check the reveal trailer below.
Original story is as follows.
The Game Awards showcase is about to kick off at 9PM EST with more than a few surprises, including what looks like a new Duke Nukem game from Gearbox.
Word around the campfire is that Duke Nukem is set to return to the gaming world in some fashion, and now Duke's voice actor Jon St. John pretty much confirmed the rumors. In a recent Facebook post, St. John said: "So...you've been hearing rumors about a famous character I voice...wondering waz up? You will know very very soon...and it is awesome!!!!!"
We're not sure if this is a brand new Duke Nukem game or if it's the remaster no one asked for (Duke Nukem: Forever), but St. John lends a lot of credence to a new game: the legendary voice actor replied in the affirmative when a fan asked him "More Duke?"
After the mindblowing sale of Overwatch during Black Friday, Blizzard announced today's patch that they are going to put a new control map on PTR along with changes to Symmetra and Zarya.
The new control map, named Oasis, is based in the Arabic deserts. According to the patch description, it's one of the most sophisticated cities in the world of Overwatch. " A monument to human ingenuity and invention, researchers and academics from around the region came together to found a city dedicated to scientific progress without restraints. The city and its inhabitants are governed by the Ministries, a collection of brilliant minds who possess many secrets that have attracted the interest of powerful organizations from around the world." ,the post added
After the foundation update and numerous curious fans returning to the game, No Man's Sky might have a chance of coming back, according to the steam reviews where it's "mostly negative" in contrast of "overwhelmingly negative".
Reddit user "ForeverANinja" noticed this change and posted it in the No man's sky subreddit in which he claims it's a "Victory" for the game.
Yet, as other reddit users commented, they would hold out on the claim and see if Hello games continue their effort to make the game better.
Well, it isn't new that fellow dataminers reveal to us future updates or events in games like what they did in Overwatch. This time, they reveal to us that maybe buggies are coming to No Man's Sky.
Redditor "eegandi" from the No Man's sky subreddit found a folder named BUGGY in the game files. With 'eegandi' explaining: "It seems that there are only material files in there, and no actual models". But as he digged in a bit further, he found a tire texture and manage to import the model in the game as you can see in the video.
A tragic accident shook the world three days ago. A chartered plane with a Brazilian division soccer team crashed near Medellin, Columbia, killing 71 people, leaving only six survivors.
The world is mourning all the tragically lost lives, and Brasil had declared three days of national mourning, while people around the globe are paying their respects to the victims.
As a response to the tragedy, Electronic Arts is giving all FIFA 17 players a free Chapecoense kit and crest so they can pay tribute to the tragically lost lives in-game.
Thanks to Redditor "bunnybowing" from the Rainbow Six Siege subreddit, we now know the countries that those 4 new CTUs from gonna come from.
The image comes from the Ubisoft China blog of weibo.com. According to it, year 2 DLC pass gonna be available on the 1st December. (That's the Chinese release date and not the North America one.) 4 new CTUs gonna be added coming from Spain, Hong Kong (China), Israel and South Korea.

My brother, nephew, and I have prepared ourselves for today - the first day of the third season of competitive play in Overwatch. Blizzard has opened the competitive flood gates on both the PC and console versions of the game.
The new competitive season will include some changes that aren't quite here yet, and lets Overwatch players built up points that can be used to rank up, and be traded in for golden weapons, sprays, icons, and more. The changes include starting Overwatch players in lower ranks, where they can work their way up, instead of falling for the first few games thanks to half-baked matchmaking.
One of the things that Blizzard did, that I liked, is that you could still play "Off Season" competitive matches. Playing the off season matches allowed people who love the format, rules, and play style of competitive mode aren't waiting so long between seasons.
Some of the changes we should expect are the new map that's on its way known as Oasis, Symmetra will receive her Photon Barrier and Shield Generator, and hopefully more. I'm hoping we get some Christmas-themed outfits and weapons, as my brother who 'hooks all day' with Roadhog wants a Santa Claus outfit for his hog.
Capcom has a lot riding on the new Resident Evil 7 game, but during an interview with Eurogamer, game director Kōshi Nakanishi explained large golden nuggets of details on Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
Nakanishi said that Capcom might have reached the original Resident Evil concept, saying: "It almost feels like this time around we were able to achieve the ideal image of what Resident Evil 1 could be. Given that you have all these photo-realistic environments and you're able to traverse through them with a first-person perspective, having that level of immersion, with all the latest technology, it was kind of cool to be able to be like, here's that very, very original concept from the very beginning, and we're able to take that vision and really apply".
Nakanishi talked about the enemy count in Resident Evil 7 "more frequent, more abundant, and at the same time it almost lessened them, almost cheapened the feel of each encounter". The team has put a lot of thought into what the adversary means to the gamer, with Nakanishi continuing: "At the end of the day, each adversary should represent a fear. Something that means when you encounter them you are scared. At the same time, because you're scared, when you do overcome them you feel a greater sense of triumph, so that's definitely something that we were trying to strive for".
