Telltale games laid off the remaining skeleton crew

Telltale Games Laid Off The Remaining Skeleton Crew


The tragic collapse of The Walking Dead developer Telltale Games continues. Telltale Games laid off around 90% of their staff as part of the “majority studio closure”. This happened during late September. However, CEO of the studio tweeted about a skeleton crew of 25 people would continue. These remaining employees were to work on the Minecraft Story project for Netflix.
Rachel Noel, an employee of Telltale tweeted about the skeleton crew also being laid off. Several major news outlets have confirmed this statement. Telltale Games and its mismanagement practices have been around for a while now. This further strengthens the fact the mismanagement claims.
Rachel then confirmed about some people still being in the studio. However, she confirmed the fact that her team is no longer in the company.
The question still remains about its flagship title The Walking Dead which is on its final season. Many major news outlets have reported on the company working to get new partners to finish the project. Above this, episode 3 for the final season is wrapping up its development. A time window of a month or 2 will be needed at max to polish the episode.
With so many unanswered questions still remaining, the fate of The Walking Dead still remains a question. Robert Kirkman, the writer, and co-creator of The Walking Dead comics on which Telltale’s adaptation is based, told fans of the games to “stay tuned.”

No PlayStation Experience this Year

So Sony has confirmed that there will be no PlayStation Experience this year. It’s going to be a huge disappointment for some people as Sony has held PSX from the past 4 years. Shawn Layden(chairman of worldwide studios for Sony Interactive Entertainment) said the decision was made because the company wouldn’t have brought enough new upcoming games to the show to make it worthwhile.

Heres what he said:

For 2018, I know this is going to be a disappointment to some people, but we’ve decided not to hold PlayStation Experience this year. We won’t have it in the States this year. The reasons behind that really are we don’t have… we have a lot of progress that we’re making on our games… and now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we’re looking down into 2019 to games like Dreams and Days Gone. But we wouldn’t have enough to bring people all together in some location in North America to have that event. We don’t want to set expectations really high and then not deliver on it. It was a hard decision, but we have determined that this year we will not hold PlayStation Experience

Also, he will allow cross-platform play for Fortnite this year. Beta testing has already begun this week. Lots of new games are coming this year and Sony has a lot of work to do. Maybe fans of PSX will understand and Layden promised that PlayStation would “crank that communication” over the winter about new games.

Sony Finally Allows Cross Platform Play For Fortnite

It finally happened folks. Sony has opened its doors for cross-platform play. Sony launched the cross-play feature in a beta stage for Fortnite. Players will now be able to play with Xbox and Switch players. Beyond this, players are now able to carry save files across these platforms. The mounting pressure from the PlayStation community played an important role in this issue. The decision not to open up cross-platform play pissed off the PlayStation community. Above all, the ability to play cross-platform between Xbox and Switch really made PlayStation look like the bad guy. These factors tipped of Sony to take a favorable decision for the community. In the blog post regarding cross-platform play, Sony said: "the first of these types of titles is Fortnite". This could very well be hinting the arrival of cross-platform play to other titles.
Sony received a major backlash for locking players out from cross-platform play. The reasoning Sony gave about this pissed even more people. Above all, not only the community was demanding cross-platform play even some developers spoke about enabling this experience. There is a lot of major third-party upcoming titles for Sony which will make use of this feature. Hence, this can be seen as a good move from Sony.
With the plethora of exclusive titles on the PlayStation, gamers will automatically gravitate towards it. This reason alone is enough for Sony to open up a feature like this without any hassle. Furthermore, Sony has plenty of exclusives up their sleeves to pump out for years to come. Titles like Spiderman and God Of War shows the dominance of the console among the competition. As a result, this move will bring more goods to Sony.
 

Unknown facts about pubg

Unknown facts about Pubg

So here are some unknown facts about pubg that we believe will be interesting. Well, we all play pubg a lot, but still many people don’t know about this game completely. Pubg is most trending game and is probably addictive too. So here are the list of facts that you probably didn’t know:

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Ever wondered why this phrase is displayed at the end when you win a game. Well, we have to take you back in the old days of America. During the 1930’s, the great depression was going on and poverty was at peak those days. People started every means to earn money and one of the sources was gambling. So when the gambler won the table he was able to afford a chicken dinner! So from there the concept came of winner winner chicken dinner.

No advertisement!

PUBG was never advertised by the publishers. It got advertised by the players and streamers. Developers didn’t spend any money on advertising and promotion. In spite of that, the game got famous and started a new era of battle royal. And pubg was the most sold game on steam. In the first two months of release pubg sold over a million copies.

Bandana

Earlier when the game was released so during the pre-order the game came with a virtual bandana. And after the popularity of the game, bandana became the rarest item. It is worth over $1000 now and people now actually buy that now! This item is so rare that this is not available in crates and the only source is that you have to buy this. So many people had no idea of the benefit of pre-ordering and who ordered it sold it before the market value reached its peak. They should have waited and could have sold it now for an easy earning.

Cinematic Replays

Many people probably know this, but some are unaware of this fact. Pubg allows you to record your gameplay in 3D and cinamatic view too. With different camera angles the cinematc recording looks great. It is very helpful for those people who wants to create pubg content or funny moments for their youtube channel to attract veiwers.

Removing Shoes

Usually, during the last few alive scenarios, it is advisable to remove your shoes. If you do not want to get spotted by your sound then you can remove the shoes. Wear those fancy shoes and boots at the beginning of the round. It won’t make a very big difference as your footsteps could still be heard if you are running on barefoot but it is much less than running on shoes. So if you want to be a sneaky player then remove your shoes, but if you are a player with a perfect aim then it doesn’t really matter.

Pubg owners are CSGO players

55% pubg players are CS: GO players. This interesting information was revealed by steamspy. According to them, there is a decline in CS: GO players by 30% So Pubg actually proved to be more addictive than CS: GO. Fewer hackers and constant new updates attracted more players every day.

Why the title “Playerunknown’s”?

The reason behind this is also quite interesting. Developer(Brendan Greene) of pubg played many games with his character name as “unknown player”. So the name should have been Brendan’s battleground! So he decided to use his default name as the game title and this game is now most trending.
