Jensen Huang (CEO of NVIDIA) took stage in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany where almost half a million press, analysts, distributors, and other industry professionals meet yearly for Gamescom to host a special NVIDIA RTX 2018 Press Conference. During this full length presentation we were given the unveiling of a brand new graphics card series that had been heavily rumored for some time now. Incorporating next-generation video memory of top tier quality, a new 12 nano-meter manufacturing process, and a new focus on Ray Tracing, the NVIDIA RTX line of GPU hardware will be set to release this year with the first model becoming available next month on September 20, 2018.
There’s a lot of controversy surrounding the sudden change from GTX to RTX and it has left many gamers and tech experts scrambling to gather information about whether or not the RTX will be as big of a leap or as immediately compatible as NVIDIA claims. The jury is still out on that, and it would be best to both pay attention to emerging analysis as well as keep an open mind over the coming months, for now though, here’s everything we know…

Dead Cells is a rogue-like Metroid-vania style game developed by the studio Motion-Twin. So this game features procedurally generated areas which is something new to the genre of Metroid-vania since it’s usually all about remembering the layout of the map, finding secrets in it, and back tracking to older areas to unlock newer areas. Dead Cells throws all of that on its head with making everything well randomized. Survive long enough and you can play it like Metroid, but die and it’s time to start over. Sure, some of the areas are pre-designed, but they are constantly randomized, so you will never know where to go next whenever a new life begins.

October 2018 will be a very special time for those who still pre-order once in a while in an age where many game companies make us want to “wait-and-see” instead. Big bro Todd Howard (a.k.a. Godd Powered) has announced on Twitter that the time for enjoying Fallout 76 is approaching. Exact details are still being worked out but the game’s B.E.T.A. (Break-It-Early Test Application) period will launch in October for Xbox first, then PS4 and PC. That means there should be plenty of footage, impressions, and examples of gameplay for those still on the fence to view before the game releases November 14, 2018.

It would seem the gaming world got a little too excited this morning when Microsoft vaguely hinted “all-new hardware” would be shown off at Gamescom 2018 only to later clarify that while this won’t be the reveal of Xbox Project Scarlet, the next-generation console expected to release in 2020 or 2021, instead they plan to announce a new Xbox One system bundle and new accessories (possibly including a rumored Elite Controller iteration that was alleged leaked recently).
This information was originally debuted in an article titled Xbox is coming to gamescom by Xbox media spokesperson Major Nelson, who himself started off as a self-made games journalist detailing news revolving around the original Xbox before eventually being hired on by Microsoft as a permanent figurehead to the brand. For those wondering, technically the event is meant to be spelled in all lowercase letters as per stylized renditions and logos, Major Nelson didn’t make an error it’s just the weird way the biggest gaming event in Germany likes to have their name typed out.
As for the leaked controller, nothing is certain yet but there are some details floating around the internet in the form of rumors as to what will be seen this August 21 – 25 when Gamescom commences.

According to SEC filings made Friday, July 6, 2018 which were sent to Investors today on July 9, 2018 Blake Jorgensen (COO & CFO at EA Games) sold $1,503,967 worth of stock market holdings in EA on July 3, 2018 (last Tuesday). This took place over two transactions in which 6,200 shares were sold at $142.85 each (for a total of $885,670) followed by an immediate secondary motion to sell 4,300 shares at $143.79 each (for a total of $618,297). Typically game industry executives have been known to sell off large amounts of stock market holdings in the companies they work for when their inside knowledge allows them to predict a future drop in value will occur (sometimes legally, sometimes illegally based on past court findings of executives at EA in particular).
Let’s take this opportunity to give an EA News WrapUp of some recent events that may be related to this disposal of securities and late filing on a massive release of shares from a loathed industry figure who has defended loot boxes in games, even as governments condemn and ban them through new laws, as well as suggest the death of single player games, and why he may think that EA’s stock market value could be heading for a decline.

Vampyr is a decadent journey into the mind of a blood doctor turned newborn immortal. An enthralling tale from start to finish, Vampyr tests the morality of Dr. Jonathan Reid as he returns home from war only to find a plague-infested London filled with mysterious enemies and allies pressing influence upon his every move. In a unique position to find a way out of this epidemic, Dr. Reid will struggle to hold onto his humanity as increasingly powerful threats emerge to himself and the civilian populace. Within him a new war rages on, that of his desire to remain noble against his rage-fueled cravings to feed on the very innocents he’s trying to protect. Then again, no adult is completely innocent, are they?
The more you get to know the residents of each district, the more experience your character will gain if they are embraced and given their final kiss of death. However, you will also lose that resident’s quest offerings, some residents sell rare items you need, and dealing too many fatal bites to your population means the end of a district. Residents will likely die trying to escape as the epidemic consumes an entire segment of the city which will remain permanently damned. The long nights set a dreary stage for Dr. Reid who may sway between good and evil based on player choice, but ultimately keeps a relatively insightful perspective available for selection the majority of the time. It’s up to the player to decide the fate of this story, and you must live with the consequences of your actions.

Many gamers have expressed doubts over the past week since the full reveal of Fallout 76 took place in Los Angeles during E3, the largest electronics entertainment industry event in the world. Bethesda Game Studios has released a lot of information about the game, but through a variety of channels.
The ambiguous nature of their reveal has done little to quell concerns that this new game will indeed be a quality experience. While we at RealGamerNewZ remain optimistic about the title, this skeptical outlook can be understood as a reaction to the fact that the game is a multiplayer online survival set in a semi-persistent shared world. Attempts at this genre have been lacking in the past, and even plagued by many issues that were repeated and remain unsolved issues in game design. Fans are worried Fallout 76 will suffer the same fate, although there’s evidence to believe that Bethesda’s approach will be better than previous entries in the genre.
