Two Point Hospital Launches on the 30th of August 2018

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Two Point Hospital finally has a release date! The first game from ex-Bullfrog developers Mark Webley and Gary Carr and their new studio Two Point will launch on the 30th of August for PC.

You can visit the store page on Steam by clicking here or you can pre-order the game now and get a 10% discount to bring the price down to £22.49. If that sounds tempting then click here to pre-order.

Two Point Hospital follows the formula of Bullfrog’s own Theme Hospital and is promising to deliver a similar set of laughs and overall absurdity. One of the illnesses you have to cure is one that turns the infected’s head into a light bulb.

There’s also a new trailer to look at, so why not click the embed below?

You Can Fix the Enemy AI in Aliens Colonial Marines for PC by Fixing a Typo

Saturday, July 14th, 2018

In one of the most bizarre discoveries of recent memory, it turns out you can greatly improve the enemy AI in the PC version of Aliens: Colonial Marines by fixing a typo.

This can all be done with a quick edit in the PecanEngine.ini file. A modder on Moddb explains the process:

A new update will be coming soon with this change included, however after getting reports back from several players on how much this effects the game, I just had to post it now

Inside your games config file (My Document\My Games\Aliens Colonial Marines\PecanGame\Config\PecanEngine.ini) is the following line of code :

ClassRemapping=PecanGame.PecanSeqAct_AttachXenoToTether -> PecanGame.PecanSeqAct_AttachPawnToTeather

Im sure you’ll notice the spelling mistake

ClassRemapping=PecanGame.PecanSeqAct_AttachXenoToTether -> PecanGame.PecanSeqAct_AttachPawnToTether

If you fix it to look like the above and then play the game, the difference is pretty crazy!

Why is this line important? There are two reasons :
1) AttachXenoToTeather doesn’t do anything. Its basically empty or stripped
2) AttachPawnToTether does ALOT. It controls tactical position adjustment, patrolling and target zoning

When a Xeno is spawned, it is attached to a zone tether. This zone tells the Xeno what area is its fighting space and where different exits are. In Combat, a Xeno will be forced to switch to a new tether (such as one behind you) so as to flank, or disperse so they aren’t so grouped up etc. (*disclaimer* this is inferred opinion, I cant see the actual code only bits)

Whenever the game tried to do this, nothing happened. Now it does!

So if you fancy a dip back into Aliens: Colonial Marines and own the PC release, you can now play a considerably more challenging version of the game with this quick fix.

SEGA seemingly tease Puyo Puyo Tetris for Steam

Monday, February 5th, 2018

Several not-very-cryptic pieces of ASCII art have been posted to the Steam pages of BayonettaVanquish, and Valkyria Chronicles, hinting that a PC port of crossover puzzler Puyo Puyo Tetris is inbound. It’s very in-line with previous PC port teasers (Vanquish was first hinted at in Bayonetta PC’s files, for instance), and the timing seems about right given yesterday was actually “Puyo Puyo Day”.

Considering Puyo Tetris is now available on a staggering number of platforms, it makes sense to push into PC territory; it’ll also be the first official Puyo release on PC since 2004’s Puyo Pop Fever. It’s nice to see SEGA Europe continue to deliver on their promise of PC ports, at any rate!

Another classic Sonic stage is making its way to Sonic Mania in the form of a remixed Chemical Plant Zone.

Check out the trailer below to see the new stage in action:

We’ve also got a new image of a Green Hill Zone act 2 boss which you can view by clicking here (WARNING: SPOILERS). This image comes courtesy of tech site Venture Beat and they may have leaked this image early as the caption doesn’t match up with what it’s showing.

Sonic Mania launches on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch on the 15th of August 2015.
