League of Legends’ new Jungler Champion is Lillia – here are the details

Way back at the beginning of 2020, League of Legends developer Riot Games revealed its flagship MOBA game would get two new Champions in big summer event this year.

Following months of rumours and hints about who this might be, we’ve now got our answer – Lillia, the Bashful Bloom, is the game’s new Champ.

The news has arrived via the official League of Legends Twitter channel, in which Riot shares the Champ’s first artwork – Lillia’s splash art.

On Lillia’s new biography page, just now online, the Champ’s lore says: “Taking up her branch, Lillia left the garden and entered the world of humans—a world she had always wanted to know, but one that frightened her now more than anything.

Only by braving the world, and braving herself, can Lillia hope to untangle its burls.”

GeForce Now Will Lose Seven More Games This Month

NVIDIA When NVIDIA’s GeForce Now left beta, we called it rough but the best streaming option at the time.

Last May, NVIDIA took steps to stem the tide of games leaving the streaming service.

But NVIDIA added plenty of games before making the switch, so developers may still request their removal.

In a forum post, the company announced the next eight games to leave the service: Leaving July 3 Saint’s Row The Third Remastered Leaving July 31 ACE COMBAT 7: SKIES UNKNOWN DARK SOULS: REMASTERED DARK SOULS II DARK SOULS II: SCHOLAR OF THE FIRST SIN DARK SOULS III SOULCALIBUR VI TEKKEN 7 That’s a set of fairly popular games, and it’s a big blow to the struggling streaming service.

Hopefully, NVIDIA’s new opt-in policy prevents too many more games from dropping away.

Are We Headed Towards a Price Jump With Next-gen

So naturally while game prices have stayed flat, the cost of making a AAA game has gone up substantially in that time, along with the quality of games.

This is because the last time videogames saw a jump in base price, was over 15 years ago – in 2002, to be precise.

Now this leads to a very important question: I don’t remember seeing AAA titles at a price tag lower than the current $60 standard.

According to reports, many publishers are considering a price jump in standard pricing moving towards the next generation in gaming.

Going a bit more in detail, the issue around game pricing was also discussed by former PlayStation exec Shawn Layden during the Gamelab conference last month: So naturally, pushing the technical boundaries also requires for a push in the prices.

While Sony sticks with 12MP sensors across the board, Samsung has a 64MP zoom option for extra detail, albeit relying on a hybrid software approach to its 3x zoom.

The S20 Plus offers consistent image quality and processing across all three of its cameras, the software does everything you want, and the phone offers good HDR and Night Mode options.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus and Sony Xperia 1 II rely on long exposure night modes for shooting in the dark, resulting in some blur and loss of accuracy.

Burnout studio Criterion releases game jam games for free

Sometimes, the developers at Criterion Games, the studio behind Burnout and an upcoming Need For Speed game, get together and have a game jam to get the creative juices flowing.

“From time to time, we get together as a studio, and spend a few days jamming together on games,” a write-up on Criterion’s site states.

“We explore everything from ideas for new game features, to exploring wild ideas for games, large and small.

Since then things had gotten quiet, before it was revealed earlier this year that the team was back in charge of Need For Speed, after Ghost Box had been in charge for a few installments, with a new entry in the racing games series on the way.

You can find all the Criterion game jam games here – they’re free, but it’s suggested you make a donation to the British Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, or Show Racism The Red Card if you enjoy them and have some pennies to spare.

Manor Lords is Banished meets Medieval: Total War

Manor Lords is Banished meets Medieval: it's by a Lords is a just-announced medieval strategy game for PC that's part city builder, part real-time strategy battle game.

The announcement video shows off lovely-looking medieval city-building, reminiscent of fantastic city-building strategy game Banished (with a bit of Frostpunk and perhaps even Cities: Skylines thrown in).

It's all the work of a Polish solo developer who goes by the name Slavic Magic.

The idea is to create a building mechanic that recreates the growth of real medieval towns and villages.

From the official blurb: "Fields must be plowed by a team of oxen, iron bloomed in a bloomery, the sheep herded on the open pastures governed by the Lord of the Manor... "This combined with an attention to detail is the key to immersing yourself fully in the medieval fiefdom you rule.

People liked EarthBound better in 2013, too, when Nintendo finally re-released the game for the first time in decades on the WiiU Virtual Console.

More than any of that, however, all my time spent homebound with EarthBound—nearly 20 hours and counting despite a newborn and no work stoppages around the Orbital HQ—comes down to the game itself.

The group obsesses over turning everything blue, but, uh, they resemble a much whiter real-world analogue and maintain a similar disposition toward others ("Your existence is a problem for me and my religion," says cult leader Mr. Carpainter before he attempts to dismantle you).

But with their character design and dialogue ("I think those who won't paint everything blue are opposed to peace," another says), the Happy Happy Religious Group probably doesn't remind players of David Koresh anymore.

Fortnite Party Royale Hosts Opus United's We The People

Party Royale introduces a new island in Fortnite filled with unique activities such as time trials and soccer matches.

Fortnite, which finally left Early Access three years after it launched in 2017, launched Party Royale in May with a show headlined by Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5, performing back-to-back sets.

The event aired at 8:46 am CDT on Independence Day, referencing the 8 minutes and 46 seconds that George Floyd’s neck was pinned to the ground by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s knee, resulting in his tragic death that has sparked social unrest across the United States.

We The People was presented by marketing collective Opus United, and was described by Epic Games in its announcement of the event as “a series of conversations that advance the dialogue around race in America with prominent BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) voices in business, sports, media, music, and entertainment.”

Fortnite‘s Party Royale, a new mode in the massively popular battle royale shooter that showcases various forms of live entertainment, hosted We The People, a series of conversations on racism, on July 4.

PS5 Pricing Still Undecided According To Sony Customer Survey

While Sony has offered no official indication of pricing for its PlayStation 5 or the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, some news has surfaced from Reddit user youessbee who claims to have been a participant in a Nielsen survey about the PlayStation 5 console.

However, the survey did apply "random pricing" to the console to see what participants thought about a price point of £349 for the standard PlayStation 5 and £259 for the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition.

A price difference of $100 between the two versions of the console would certainly push more cost-conscious gamers to purchase the Digital Edition.

We wouldn't expect any price differences between digital and physical versions of next-generation games, but saving $100 on the hardware would make the Digital Edition appealing.

The original Reddit poster claimed to have been involved in past Nielsen surveys about console pricing and said typically the consoles launched at 20% more than survey pricing.

There's a debate raging in video games over whether loot boxes should be classified as gambling

Przybylski also said that blanket regulation of video games with loot box mechanics as gambling would be "apocalyptically stupid," as this would essentially mean slapping an 18+ label on a wide range of games aimed at children, such as "Fortnite" and "FIFA."

Dr Zendle's research has shown there is a correlation between spending money on loot boxes and problem gambling.

Included in the report's findings on problem gambling was the recommendation that so-called "loot boxes" in video games be immediately reclassified by the government to fall under the remit of 2005 Gambling Act.

In the UK, the House of Lords this week recommended the legal reclassification of loot boxes in video games as gambling.

Although the evidence on whether there's a causal link between loot boxes and gambling is equivocal, Dr Zendle told Business Insider that the video game industry brought this on itself.
