  1. You know the massive boss ships that float down from the top of the screen in classic bullet hell games? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play as one of those for a change? Now you can thanks to Spacewave Software's Rival Megagun! Rival Megagun has two players competing against one another as they battle through SHMUP (Shoot 'Em Up) levels while trying to take one another out. When hitting certain power levels, players can cross the vertical divide to attack their opponent as a colossal boss ship - a Mega Gunship, if you will. Players can tackle the game solo against the AI, play against friends in local couch co-op, or take on all comers online. The game features a number of different playable characters each with their own strengths and weaknesses and unique Mega Gunship forms. There's also a solo play arcade mode for those who want to immerse themselves in the classic roots of the genre. As players progress through the Rival Megagun, they'll unlock new components and weapons for their various ships, enabling customizations and opening up devious tactics to spring on unsuspecting rivals. Rival Megagun is available today for PC and PlayStation 4, November 30 for Xbox One, and December 12 for the Nintendo Switch. Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  3. In The Division 2, life has moved on. Civilians and military forces have begun rebuilding and consolidation power. With that reconstruction comes new life and the spark of hope, as well as new systems of oppression. The sequel to the 2016 online scavenge-craft-n-shoot hopes to offer players a more nuanced narrative about overcoming authoritarianism in a post-apocalyptic future version of Washington DC. The trailer takes viewers through a seemingly thriving community being rebuilt in the middle of Washington DC. The community grows food, pursues music and art, and everyone seems to be contributing to the greater good. However, only a block away scavengers kill a man in the streets while innocents hide in the nearby ruins of society. Nearby, we are shown a large, makeshift graveyard that slowly melts into an execution square hung 'round with tattered American flags. Someone in a position of authority lectures struggling prisoners about breaking the rules before the camera turns away and a gunshot sounds. Amid all of this, a little girl runs through the settlement, seemingly playing. She throws a paper airplane that's glimpsed throughout the trailer. Its flight finally comes to its end at the feet of characters bearing the emblems of The Division. On the paper is written one word: "Help." Though the single player experience was strongly implied to be more robust than in the first game, Ubisoft was careful to make sure everyone knows that they plan to support The Division 2 for years to come. Specifically, finishing the main campaign will unlock the ability to specialize into one of three classes and pick a unique weapon. These roles will come with new abilities that will unlock as players progress through the endgame. And, oh boy, does Ubisoft plan on paving the road to endgame content. Following The Division 2's release next year, Ubisoft will release three separate content packs to all players for free that will add all manner of new things to the game. On top of that, players who reach the endgame will be able to participate in raids that team up to eight players together to tackle challenging encounters unlike anything else in the game up until that point. The Division 2 releases March 15, 2019 for PlayStaiton 4, Xbox One, and PC. Players who want a head start on the action can register for the beta on The Division website.

    Online Themed D&D Game

    Hi folks, I am very green to the Extra Life community. I am working with a few people to raise money within our Salesforce Community. Hopefully you can give me some tips to make my plan run smoothly. The plan is to record a D&D game with 4-5 players. The DM is designing a game with a theme around our industry (Salesforce) and the conference coming up in October (Dreamforce). We will play up to 3 sessions, roughly an hour each. The visual I am imagining is 5-6 video feeds with a a banner that shows information about the site and Extra Life. We are going to encourage people to donate money in the name of their favorite character form the game. The more money each character raises, the more benefits they gain for the next session to be released the following week. My question to you experts out there is, what site would be the best to use in recording the game. Is Roll20 a good option? Are there other sites I should be looking into? Are there any idas on how to makes this a better success. I appreciate all of your feedback. Thanks!
  6. Hey there, Extra Lifers! My name is Joshua, and I am an Extra Life veteran of about 5 years. Some of you may know me from the Live Chat team in years past, and others may know me as the President of the Orlando, FL guild. Over the years I've always created small guilds, channels, linkshells, what-have-yous in games that I either play regularly or plan on playing for Extra Life. I thought that it would be a cool idea to keep us connected while we game, especially coming up on Game Day. So, here's a list of the communities that I've made, and would LOVE you to add your own. Chances are, someone out there is playing the same game as you =p Here's a basic outline: Post the game, the applicable server, and the "owner" of the community along with your Extra Life community ID, and I'll edit this post and add it to the list. If you want to join a community listed, just get in contact with the recruiter. =) If the community has a specific "In-Game" type, list that too. (Linkshell, Player Channel, etc) MMORPG Communities: Final Fantasy XIV: Lamia Server "Extra Lifers" - Crysola Tsara (Novus'Olm / Joshua) - LinkshellGuild Wars 2: North America Megaserver "Extra Life Community <FTK>" - Crysola Tsara [novusolm.9032] (Novus'Olm / Joshua) - Casual/Communication Guild
  7. OnLive and Samsung have announced a new partnership today that will offer Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users three months of cloud gaming for free. What does that mean for Galaxy Note 4 owners? Users will be able to download the OnLive Android app from the Samsung Galaxy App store and stream full-fledged PC and console games to their Note 4 anywhere they have access to Wi-Fi or a 4G connection. The package will grant customers access to over 250 games via OnLive's PlayPack titles. “The addition of the OnLive app to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 makes high-end games available that normally can’t be played on an Android tablet. We’re excited to give Samsung customers a taste of cloud gaming with the gift of 3 free months of unlimited gaming,” said Mark Jung, OnLive's executive chairman. The OnLive subscription isn't limited to the Galaxy Note 4, either. Users can play on their new Galaxy Note 4 or use almost any other device including tablets, computers and HDTVs that would normally lack the processing power to run PC or console games. OnLive is also offering a seven day free trial of OnLive CloudLift, which allows users to access and play PC games that they already own be means of OnLive’s cloud-streaming technology. It is a pretty cool offer and if you're in the market for a new smartphone this is certainly worth looking into. View full article

  9. According to Polygon, the FBI approached the International Game Developer Association back in July in response to what they perceived as an increase in digital abuse directed toward developers in the video game industry. The IGDA is currently underway creating a mental health special interest group that would deal with issues surrounding online harassment. The group is also working with the FBI to set up online resources to help developers on the receiving end of digital threats. The FBI initially met with the IGDA because they wanted to discuss the security of developers, their companies, and intellectual property. Last week, the IGDA board of directors issued a statement addressing the recent wave of harassment that has swept the industry: Over the last several weeks, game developers and affiliates have been the subject of harassment and 'doxxing' attacks, including threats and posting of home addresses. While we support diverse viewpoints and healthy debate on the issues within our industry, we condemn personal attacks such as these which are not only morally reprehensible, but also illegal in many countries. We call on the entire game community to stand together against this abhorrent behavior. This statement comes on the heels of serious threats made against several game developers that either motivated them to leave the industry or flee their homes and a bomb threat against the president of Sony Online Entertainment's flight. The industry and gaming community seem to have gone insane the last couple weeks. Hopefully things will eventually settle down when people learn that they can disagree while remaining civil.

  11. Mojang's long awaited private server hosting service for Minecraft is finally available for PC and Mac users. Starting at $13 a month, Realms is a paid for service that allows people who are interested in hosting a Minecraft server to do so both conveniently and safely. The servers will run 24/7 whether the host is online or not, meaning everyone can participate on the server at any time. Servers are limited to 20 players with only 10 allowed onto the server at once. Data will be backed up often so if some disaster strikes your Minecraft server, loading an earlier world state should be a simple matter. If $13 seems to be a steep price, there are options for longer subscriptions or recurring payments that bring the cost down a bit. Though Minecraft recently launched on PS3, Minecraft Realms is currently only available for PC and Mac. Mojang plans to eventually make the service available to players on other systems.

  13. In a week between the release of a new generation of video game hardware and software, the release of a fighting game from a decade ago can easily be overlooked. "Transcending history, and the world, a tale of souls and swords, eternally retold," it would appear that the opening words of Soulcalibur II ring true as one of the most popular fighting games of the GameCube, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 era has been remastered and ported to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as a digital download. The ten year anniversary HD release stays true to the original, with a few minor improvements. The character roster includes Spawn and Heihachi Mishima, previously only available on the Xbox and PS2 versions, respectively. Nintendo didn't allow Link, the exclusive character in the GameCube version, to appear in the re-release. Most importantly, as the name would imply, Soulcalibur II HD Online will include online matchmaking. Any Extra Lifers out there have fond memories of Soulcalibur II? Thinking about picking up HD Online? Let us know what you think! View full article
