The new noblechairs HERO Gaming Chair - DOOM Edition will be avail;able to purchase online and through retailers across the world, with noblechairs teaming with Bethesda Softworks on the chair -- the second in their partnership after the Fallout Edition gaming chair.

Noblechairs put some work into the DOOM Edition chair, to make sure it was good enough for Satan himself to sit on. This means we're talking about the chair being pretty much all black, with massive blood red accents all across the chair. I'm pretty sure you're doing some Satanic ritual while sitting on that chair with all of the symbols all over it.

Anthony Garreffa | Gaming | Fri, Aug 7 2020 8:22 PM CDT

Hitman 3 was announced in June 2020, with IO Interactive saying that in Hitman 3 you play once again as Agent 47 in the "most intimate and professional contract in his entire career". Well, now Agent 47 is entering the world of virtual reality, check it out:

IO Interactive announced the news during Sony's recent State of Play event, that Hitman 3 would have the entire modern Hitman trilogy available for the PlayStation VR when the game launches in January 2021. We don't know much outside of the trailer, which starts off outside of Agent 47 before you take control, and have to assassinate someone.

The developer did confirm that every single mission from Hitman, Hitman 2, and the new Hitman 3 will be included and playable in PlayStation VR. We don't know if you'll be able to jump in and out of Hitman in VR and back to the regular TV or display, or if you start Hitman in VR if you have to finish that mission "in VR" or not.

Grand Theft Auto was last rendering the city of Vice City back with GTA: Vice City in 2002, nearly 20 years ago now. The new information on GTA 6 being based in Vice City comes from synthwave musician Pete Brian Rice, who tweeted that "music rights clearing people" working with Rockstar had talked to him and other synthwave artists for a "radio station".

Rice of course quickly deleted his tweet, but not before sites spotted it and began running with the story.

Heaven's fury aims to smite Doom Slayer in new Doom Eternal expansion

Derek Strickland | Gaming | Fri, Aug 7 2020 2:55 PM CDT

The ancient ones are back to restore cosmic balance in Doom Eternal's newly announced Ancient Gods expansion.

Doom Eternal's deep lore is about to amp things up to 11. When we left Eternal, Doom Slayer had basically upended the entire realm of Creation with his actions. He brought fury to both Heaven and Hell, and massacred everything in his wake. As the prophesied Slayer, he brought disruption to the balance, but also freedom for humanity. But the Makyrs, the interstellar omnidimensional archangels of the Doom universe, want revenge.

To really understand what's happening in the trailer we have to talk about the lore a bit more. Below we're going to talk spoilers, so be forewarned.

New MYST documentary Kickstarter is 71% funded with 6 days to go 233 | TweakTown.com

There's a new Kickstarter up for a Myst documentary that explores the myst-ical history of the old-school PC game. The documentary will feature in-depth interviews with Robyn and Rand Miller, the original creators of the franchise, complete with retrospectives on the series and what kinds of games they have worked in the past and present, and what their plans are for the future.

Right now the project is 71% funded with $142,000 out of the $200,000 target goal, and has 6 days left. It's an "all or nothing" project, meaning it will only happen if it reaches the funding goal. The documentary will span two timelines: The origin story, which focuses on the development of Myst and Riven, and the present-day era that chronicles current projects that're in development at Cyan Worlds.

Today Rocksteady confirmed years of speculation by announcing a new Suicide Squad vs Justice League game. Sources now say the project won't be ready for a pretty long time.

Rocksteady is set to reveal its new Suicide Squad game during the DC Fandome event on August 22, but don't expect a release date. We could be waiting for the project for another year or two. Sources tell Bloomberg's Jason Schreier, who has extensive knowledge of WB Games' in-development titles, that Rocksteady's latest game won't be ready any time soon.

The Suicide Squad game--which will reportedly be a live service GaaS title--originally started development at WB Montreal in 2016. The project was cancelled, and Rocksteady was then charged to make a game based around the IP. It appears Rocksteady added more ambition to the project by injecting Justice League characters like Superman into the game.

Injustice 3 reveal soon? Ed Boon will be at the new DC Fandome event

Derek Strickland | Gaming | Fri, Aug 7 2020 12:15 PM CDT

New info from WB has ignited hype about Injustice 3, which should be the next game from Netherealm.

Today Warner Bros. revealed a teaser for its upcoming DC Fandome event, which includes high-profile game announcements in the DC universe. Netherealm's Ed Boon will be there, and fans think it could be to announce Injustice 3. It's certainly a possibility given Netherealm has hopped back and forth between Injustice and Mortal Kombat games for years now. Netherealm might be ready to move on from Mortal Kombat 11, which just got a new Aftermath expansion (plus a full game SKU re-release) and is on its third character pack DLC.

As for actual game reveals, Rocksteady today confirmed its new Suicide Squad x Justice League game will be shown at the event. WB Montreal's new Batman game, which could be based around the Gotham Knights comic series, will also be fully revealed.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake has broken 5 million sales in five months on the market, which is almost half of the PS1 original's sales figures.

Today Square Enix confirmed a big 5 million sales milestone for its big new Final Fantasy 7 Remake. The figure includes both physical shipments and digital sales. This is good news for the publisher's flagging HD Games segment, which saw sharper declines in FY2019 thanks to underperformance of key titles.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake has been a boon for Square Enix's business. The game significantly contributed to the massive 300% net sales spike in the HD Games segment, which skyrocketed to $316.91 million in Q1'20 (March 31 - June 30). Digital game sales also shot up 91% to 6.21 million units in the period, driven by Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Secret of Mana. Analyst firm SuperData says FF7R sold 2.2 million units in April alone, and Square Enix confirmed the game sold 3.5 million copies in 3 days time.

Rocksteady's new game is a Superman game, combined with Suicide Squad

Anthony Garreffa | Gaming | Fri, Aug 7 2020 9:17 AM CDT

We knew that something was brewing over at Rocksteady in the form of a new Superman game -- and even though we thought there was NOT a new Superman game in development at Rocksteady, it is official: there's a new Suicide Squad game on the way but that's not all. Oh man, check out the tweet:

So I've been following virtually every major Twitter account that I can for DC FanDome, which is a new event coming where we should get our first real trailer to Zack Snyder's Justice League. Because of that, I was sitting at my PC at nearly midnight my time and saw this news from Rocksteady Studios on Twitter.

It is a movie-style poster with Superman in all his glory, looking quite pissed off and maybe his heat vision is going a bit nuts here in the photo after a fight. It's a very hero-style shot and I love it... the spit curl, I'm digging -- as it's a small departure from the Superman in the DCEU with Henry Cavill in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Intel breach: 20GB of confidential, 'restricted secret' files leaked

Anthony Garreffa | CPU, APU & Chipsets | Thu, Aug 6 2020 11:15 PM CDT

Uh... so things have already gone from bad to worse with Intel in the last few years and recently, the last few months with disaster (7nm was already a mess, then it was delayed until 2022) after disaster (Intel hardware chief leaves after 7nm mess announced) -- but have we now reached peak Intel doom?

Intel is currently investigating a security breach that has seen 20GB of internal documents leaked, with some of these files market "confidential" or "restricted secret". The files were leaked and then uploaded onto the Kim Dotcom-created MEGA file sharing website.

Till Kottmann, a Swiss software engineer, published the data after receiving the files from an "anonymous hacker who claimed to have breached Intel earlier this year", reports ZDNet.
