    Women_Promoted_New2018_v1.jpg

    Gaming is for everyone, and intelligent and creative women have always been an integral part of bringing the biggest and best games to life. From Sierra co-founder Roberta Williams, who pioneered the graphic adventure genre with series like King’s Quest, to Brenda Romero, who has spent nearly four decades as a programmer and designer in the game industry on franchises like Wizardry and Jagged Alliance, women have made extensive contributions to the industry. This has only continued with women taking more leadership roles, such as Jade Raymond going from executive producer on Ubisoft’s juggernaut Assassin’s Creed series to co-founding and becoming a GM at EA’s Motive Studios.

    A new Kickstarter project recently appeared online (and is already well on its way to its goal with nearly a month to spare) that wants to explore Sega's early history in the world of arcade machines with a pop-up book.

    The Kickstarter is seeking $52,717 to publish the book, titled Sega Arcade: Pop-Up History, which will covoer five games: Hang-On, Space Harrier, OutRun, After Burner and Thunder Blade. It will feature sculptures from engineer Helen Friel, art from Kam Tang, and entries providing historical context for all the games by Guardian author Keith Stuart. Sega is also fully partnered for the project and has given it its blessing.

    Fortnite's First Summer Skirmish Cut Short By Lag And Viewer Boredom

    GameInformer
    By GameInformer,

    Epic Games recently invested $100 million in prize money for Fortnite's 2018-2019 tournaments. Roughly $8 million of that pot is dedicated to Fortnite's Summer Skirmish Series, which kicked off yesterday and runs over the next two months.

    Yesterday's match didn't go as planned, both from the stability of the game and the flow of the competition. The match featured 35 teams comprised of pros and celebrities. They were to battle in 10 matches, and the first team to grab two Victory Royales would win first place, and a prize of $50,000. If a team didn't win twice, that pot would go to the team that netted the most kills in all of the matches.

    The team that achieved the most kills at the end of a single match won $6,500. This reward should have pushed players to be aggressive in their attacks, but some players couldn't move at all. The lag was so bad during some of the matches that players were being eliminated before they could even control their characters. You can see a moment of the lag here.

    The teams clearly recognized that lag would be an issue and decided to camp and hide. This approach, while likely giving teams the best odds to win, didn't deliver excitement, and turned this first Fortnite Summer Skirmish into a huge swing and miss for Epic Games. The tournament was cut short after just four matches were played. The winners were Chap and Liquid72Hrs in match one, Kevie1 and Notvivid in match two, Bartonologist and Baysoldier in match three, and ImMarksman and Yaboywildcat in the final match.

    Following the battles, Epic Games tweeted "Thanks to all the participants we had out in the first week of #SummerSkirmish! We'll be using different formats each week. We're looking into improving server performance and ironing out issues as well."

    What is Being Removed in Battle for Azeroth

    Curse
    By Curse,
    What is Being Removed in Battle for Azeroth
    With the launch of each new expansion there are certain items, achievements, and mounts which become unobtainable. Here is a quick rundown of things you might want to get done in the next couple of days!

    Achievements
    Antorus the Burning Throne
    A lot of the achievements being removed revolve around raiding. As always, with the launch of a new raid tier or new expansion, Ahead of the Curve for defeating the final boss on Heroic, and Cutting Edge for defeating Argus on Mythic are being removed.

    argustheunmaker.jpg

    The Antoran Charhound is remaining as is, but the Shackled Ur'zul that drops from Mythic Argus, and the Fiendish Hellfire Core that drops from Mythic Gul'dan will have its drop rate drastically reduced.

    FiendishHellfireCore.jpg shackledurzul.jpg


    It is believed that the Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal, which awards the Violet Spellwing mount, will no longer be obtainable after the launch of Battle for Azeroth. You can obtain this mount from defeating Heroic Argus the Unmaker and doing the quick quest Blood of a Titan from Blood of the Unmaker looted from the body.

    Trial of Valor
    The Chosen Achievement in the Trial of Valor is being removed, and along with it the title will no longer be obtainable. While this is one of the more difficult achievements to obtain, there are some weekly pug groups who can defeat it successfully. This achievement requires you to complete Mythic Trial of Valor without dying to any of the bosses with the Test of the Chosen buff. You receive a Mythic colored transmog appearance for the Trial of Valor transmogs on top of the title for completing this achievement.

    Professions
    In the Professions category, all of the First Aid achievements are being moved to the Legacy section. Because of the removal of this profession, it is very likely that all of the achievements that involve it will also be unobtainable. Most of these are currently easily obtainable, however the Field Medic might take some time to complete.

    PvP
    In PvP there are two large PvP instances as well as some transmog items being removed. The Legion Elite sets will no longer be obtainable after the last arena season ends. If your character did reach the needed arena rating, you will still be able to purchase the set later.

    pvpelite.jpg

    Strand of the Ancients and Ashran are also being retired along with all of their achievements. Some of these may see a return at a later date if the battlegrounds return in a special category of battlegrounds.

    standoftheancients.jpg ashran.jpg


    Artifact Appearance
    Most Artifact appearances will remain available for collection after patch 8.0. Currently, the only appearance which needs to be completed before that is the base appearance of the Mage Tower Challenge. As long as the base appearance is unlocked prior to the prepatch you will still be able to obtain the different color of the weapon. In a recent post, Blizzard confirmed that towards the end of the expansion the Mage Tower will be permanently available to give players a chance to complete all of the ones that they desire to obtain.

    Brawler’s Guild
    The Brawler’s Guild, along with the rewards and bosses, will likely be retiring for a set time when Battle for Azeroth launches. If you want to experience some interesting solo content, the Brawler’s Guild has some engaging challenges. After obtaining an invitation you can participate in your faction's capital city. The rewards will most likely be available again if the Brawler's Guild continues as it has in the past couple of expansions.

    Things That Might be Harder in Battle For Azeroth
    This section is dedicated to things that are not necessarily limited to Legion, but you will most likely have an easier time doing them before we move into the next expansion.

    Long-Forgotten Hippogryph
    Currently all realms are limited to their own realms shard, making it easier to collect all the crystals necessary to obtain the mount. Once the next patch hits, all realms will move to a Cross Realm Zone system, increasing the competition to obtain the mount.

    Raiding and Dungeons
    The Glory achievements for all of the Legion raids and dungeons will be much more difficult to complete once the new expansion launches. Even though at some point most of them will be soloable, some achievements require multiple players, and finding a group to complete them is much easier while we are still in Legion.

    Glory achievement rewards:


    Fishing
    Legion has fishing pools that are easier to do with a large groups of players. Conjurer Margoss has a fishing pool near Dalaran, and if you fish up enough Drowned Mana, you can purchase lures, bobbers, the Sting Ray Pup companion, and the Brinedeep Bottom-Feeder mount.

    The Fisherfriend of the Isles achievement is also quicker to complete in the current patch, because it requires players to fish up special items, similar to Conjurer Margoss, making farming the reputation in large groups much more efficient.

    Talon's Vengeance
    If you want to collect the Ivory Hawkstrider mount, you might want to start grinding the Talon's Vengeance reputation to obtain the Ivory Feather. This can be done by obtaining the Ivory Feather, which you can use in the Falcosaur and PvP World Quest areas to obtain Marks of Prey that increase your reputation with the faction.

    Footsies Is A Stripped-Down Fighting Game That Focuses On The Art Of Timing

    GameInformer
    By GameInformer,
    footsies.jpg

    As most mainstream fighting games aim to complexify their systems while making the basics accessible. Enter Footsies, a fighting game that will show the power of proper timing and spacing the hard way. It's not exactly easy, but it's simple, and will hopefully teach you proper timing and spacing the hard way.

    The game is about landing a special move on your opponent to win the round. Special moves can tough to land, so you can cancel a neutral or forward/back attack into them. You also have access to a Shoryuken-style uppercut, though this one can't be canceled into and serves more as a way to capitalize on predicting your opponent's next attack and countering it. You can also dash forward or backward. Block is allowed, but discouraged; you can only block three attacks per round.

    This puts an emphasis on moving back and forth on the small field, making sure you not only press the right attack button at the right time, but aren't just mashing buttons and can follow up any stray move into a special and win the round. It's a neat back-to-basics fighting that not only acts as a teaching tool, but could be fun in its own right. You can download the game for free here.

    Dataminers Have Already Found A Ton Of The New Items In Fortnite Season 5

    Season 5 of Fortnite may have just started, but much of what could be released throughout the season is already out in the wild, if you know where to look.

    Dataminers DieBuddies have found a ton of the new stuff coming to Fortnite in the new season by looking within the game's files, where most players can't access them. Some of the new skins include a viking getup, a shark suit, a luchador outfit, and more.

    Some more new skins! pic.twitter.com/KQ60VfKqdu

    Some of these include new backpacks as well.

    And the backblings (I forgot the last 2 in a previous tweet)! pic.twitter.com/ododE3la6P

    Of course, some new gliders and pickaxes also follow the aforementioned outfit themes for the season.

    We also get a look at how the items acquired from the Battle Pass will progress as you level it up...

    While we're at it, here's a new umbrella...

    And some cool beach balls.

    Each of the balls has an elite version (right image)! pic.twitter.com/fZY0G4eRVE

    — DieBuddies (@TwoEpicBuddies) July 12, 2018

    It's hard to say for sure which of these items will make it into the final game (it's not always one-to-one), but chances are most of these will be playable at some point in the near future.
