Hunger, Masquerade and Humanity - the first details of Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York
Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is a future game from the Polish studio Draw Distance. At the beginning of the week, the developer shared with us the first details about his project.
Coteries of New York is inspired by games from the now-dead Talltale, but unlike their projects, it will not be an interactive adventure, but a full-fledged visual novel. At the very least, such feelings arise from viewing screenshots of the pre-alpha version of the game.
We are playing classically for a newly converted young kinsman who joins the "Camarilla" - the faction that currently controls the vampire world and guards the Masquerade. In the future, the hero will meet other canonical factions, as well as gather his group.
The main aspect of the game is choice. It will change the plot of the game, as well as the relationship with the members of your group. The following components will also affect the story:
Dungeons & Dragons first released in USA
You've probably heard about the legendary board game Dungeons & Dragons and its cultural impact, including on the gaming industry. Perhaps you wondered: "Where can you play it in the USA language?" Previously, the answer was "nowhere." Now everything has changed, as the legendary board game has finally crept into USA localization.
Hobby World announced the event, and even more, they released the Dungeons & Dragons: Starter Kit. It consists of:
Feel free to use character sheets, as Hobby World has made them publicly available so players can always print more.
A little about how this is played in general. Dungeons & Dragons is based on conversations. The game master [one of the players] comes up with a story that is based on the rules of the universe. As a result, he and 5 players from his team go through this story together.
Each character has its own perks, and the probability of using them successfully depends on the die roll. The character's actions fully depend on the player, who can act differently in the current situations.
As a reminder, Dungeons & Dragons is one of the most beloved games in geek culture of all time. She was fond of at one time the most famous personalities, such as George R.R. Martin, Steven Spielberg, Matt Groening, Stephen King, Elon Musk and Robin Williams. References to this game are present in many games, films and TV series.
The price of the set is 1999 rubles.
Mein Waifu is the Fuhrer - an erotic novel about Hitler's Waifu breaks through on Kickstarter
About times about morals…. If you thought that the Subverse porn hybrid, which has become one of the most iconic projects on the Kickstarter, was the climax of insanity, then get ready for the erotic project about how the entire government of the Third Reich turned into anime waifu.
The protagonist of the game is Erwin Rommel, who led the operation to invade Poland. However, these plans are thwarted by the conspirator Klaus von Stauffenberg by organizing an assassination attempt on the elite of Germany. As a result, the entire government of the Third Reich perishes. At least it seems so at first glance.
In fact, returning to his homeland, Rommel realizes that Hitler and all his inner circle have turned into anime girls, and with their inept kawaii actions, they are destroying the country. Rommel must stop this.
The creators of this creation promise that the game has a branched plot, which will take place against the background of the main events of the Second World War, for example, the battle for Stalingrad, the Landing in Normandy, etc. There will be five girls in the game: Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebelss, Hermann Goering and Rudolf Hess ...
Developers asked for $ 8,000 for their project, but as a result they collected 87,859 green. Thanks to this generosity, the following will be added to the game:
DEVGRU-P's Mein Waifu is the Fuhrer will be released this year.
A Japanese man threatened to burn Square Enix for losing a mobile game
Not so long ago in Japan, a man set fire to the anime studio Kyoto Animation. In that gruesome incident, 35 employees were killed and 33 others were injured. Police arrested a man this week who wanted to do the same with games studio Square Enix.
Japanese Kenti Hirotsuki for some time sent threats through the official website of Square Enix that he would set their studio on fire if they did not return the money to him for them, quote: "shitty games."

DLC with cool graphics was canceled for Minecraft
In 2017, Microsoft announced that they were going to release a realistic graphics add-on for Minecraft called Super Duper Graphic Pack. Alas, you won't be able to look at Minecraft in another way, since it was canceled.
On the game's website, the developers explained this by the fact that it turned out to be much more difficult to implement realistic graphics than they thought, and in the end they were disappointed with the game's performance on different platforms.
As a reminder, the add-on would bring things like detailed shadows, 4K and Full HD.
