Spaceship Roguelike Battlestation: Harbinger Coming in August

Roguelike games are all about random elements, and what’s more random than the vacuum of space? All those cosmic rays and floaty things to deal with…

You’ll be engaging in space combat, clearing sectors, completing objectives, and discovering worlds. It all seems fascinating and I’m curious to go hands-on with it. Battlestation: Harbinger will release for $3.99 without IAP on August 13th.

Bethesda Can’t Make Any More Pip-Boy Collector’s Editions

The Pip-Boy, a plastic accessory that turns your smartphone into a second screen for Fallout 4, has been very hard to come by. According to Bethesda’s VP of Marketing, Pete Hines, the company simply can’t make any more of the accessory.

“We made a s**tload of Pip-Boys, and we went back and made more, and went back and made more. I keep seeing stuff about, ‘Oh, you only did a few thousand.” No–we did a ton of these things. I think we did more of these things than we did for any collector’s edition we’ve ever done, ever.”

First Impressions of Five Nights at Freddy’s 4

Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon has distributed the demo for the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 to a couple of lucky YouTubers, who posted their initial reactions to the game on YouTube.

Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 is the scariest yet, both in quantity and variety of jump scares. There’s new gameplay elements with it taking place inside of your house, and it’s said to be more difficult than previous games with these guys taking quite a while to even get through the first night. Listening to the sound of the game is more important than ever, which again, really just sets you up for prime positioning for an animatronic to jump out at you.
