Bethesda wants to get cheaters to write essays, and speedrun will be part of esports - the latest game news digest of this year from Cadelta. Part one


Also read our game digest about Blizzard's cutbacks, yet another racist scandal, the best games of the year according to their creators and more.

Classic Combat Coming To Darksiders 3

Darksiders 3, rightfully earned the title of "the most controversial game of the year", has undergone changes in its combat system, which is significantly different from previous parts. For this, the project has received many comparisons with the Dark Souls series. The developers, who have heard enough of these comparisons, made a significant change in the last patch, adding a classic combat mode to the game, which makes the third part more similar to its predecessors.


Rage will be able to immediately use items, as well as interrupt attacks while dodging. You can switch between the old and new battle options at any time.

Celeste will receive "farewell content"

The author of the game Mat Thorson wrote on his Twitter that his brainchild sold over 500 thousand copies (which is very solid for an indie project), and also that the game will receive new content, named by the author as "farewell". These are several new levels that will surpass the previous ones in their complexity. We should expect them in early 2019. It is not yet known whether they will be paid or not.


Chuchel Racist Scandal

The Czech studio Amanita design was forced to change the appearance of the protagonist of their adventure game Chuchel. Chuchel is the name of the hero, which translates from Czech as "a ball of dust". It changed its appearance from a black dust ball to orange. According to the public, the black Scarecrow is similar to black face - this was the name for the cartoon makeup of clowns in the 19th century, who painted their faces black, leaving the lips intact. This image was used to make fun of black people, and this is not acceptable in 2018. Amanita design eventually made concessions.


Blizzard Mass Reduction

As we know from Kotaku's Jason Schreyer, the studio is going through a tough time right now due to pressure from Activision. This is confirmed by the termination of development of Heroes of the Storm, and now a wave of layoffs.

Dismissals are voluntary, however, there are pitfalls. The company has a career crossroads system, when financial compensation is due for voluntary dismissal. Initially, it was introduced for old employees who are inconvenient to dismiss, but it is desirable to push them towards retirement.

Now almost all employees can take advantage of this, and recently, voluntary dismissal fees have been growing almost every week. Thus, if you trust the insider leaks of information, the studio is trying to remove such employees as financiers, analysts, quality controllers - everyone who is not associated with the creation of games, but at the same time has a significant influence on the company's policy. This is how the Blies want to cut costs in the long term, as well as accelerate the pace of new projects.

Bethesda wants to force cheaters to write essays

Some gamers banned from Fallout 76 report that Besezda suggested that they might reconsider their decision if they write an essay on the topic: "Why cheating is harmful to modern online games.

The problem is that those who did not cheat, but simply installed a mod that improves the graphics in the game, fell under the hot hand of the company (the developer did not bother to do it on his own). Again, the banned themselves claim that they simply put on mods for color correction, better image resolution, but no more. Alas, we cannot take their word for it.


In any case, with what Bethesda has been doing over the past couple of months, it would be worthwhile for its board of directors to write an essay on the topic: "How trend-chasing hurts the games industry."

Speedrun will become the official esports. Speedrunners are not happy

The Global Speedrun Association has decided to make fast-paced games an official part of esports. Most of the speedrunenrs themselves argue against this, because in competitions for fast passing games it is very easy to cheat, using secret techniques that speedrunenre betray to each other through word of mouth. You can cheat, from turning on the recording of the passage on the big screen, ending with banal agreements.


Game Designers' Best Games of the Year

The Game Informer website polled eminent game developers about the best projects of this year. For example, Corey Barlog, creator of the God of War game of the year, has named Marvel's Spider Man, Celeste, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Detroit: Become Human as favorites. It's funny, but the praises of God of War itself are sung by colleagues of Mr. Barlog. This is the main game designer of Darksiders 3 David Adams, Anthem producer Mike Gamble and its game director Jonathan Warner, and others.


In general, the general picture of the vision of the best games of the year, according to those who create them, mostly consists of Marvel's Spider Man, God of War and of course RDR 2.

A TES Universe Cookbook Coming Soon
