News Snatch: NBA 2K18, Dragon’s Dogma, Destiny 2 Bananas, And Chuck Tingle


Hey there, time for another News Snatch and it’s an extra packed issue this Friday so grab a cuppa and some biscuits as you’re going to be here a while. I should warn you’re probably going to get stuck about three-quarters of the way down this Snatch and you may need to reboot you brain at that point, you’ll know what I’m talking about when you get there.

Anyways, we start with a behind the scenes look at how Blizzard make their fantastic animated shorts for Overwatch. By that I mean ‘stories that are not lengthy’, rather than ‘cut-off trousers that move by themselves’.

Basketball is not my thing so it’s over to the EA2K PR team to explain what’s going on in NBA 2K18.

The Neighborhood is unlike anything ever seen in NBA 2K or any other sports career mode before. MyPLAYERs live in a neighborhood environment with several locations in the city blocks to visit, flush with other MyPLAYERS and characters with whom to interact. Experiences and ratings revolve around player actions, whether it’s running into Kyrie Irving while getting a shave at the barbershop, competing on the courts in The Playground, getting inked at the tattoo parlour, listening to the latest beats or showing off the latest gear to friends while strolling the block. A user’s experience is entirely shaped by how they compete, allowing them to reap the rewards of playing NBA 2K18 the way they enjoy it most.

Although it doesn’t look they have done much to the environment – some of them are very blocky and last gen – the game is certainly much sharper with improved draw distances, as you can see in the comparison video below.

Got ten minutes to spare? Like cute Japanese things? Then why not watch this video of another remake, Secret of Mana, which is coming to PS4, PS Vita, and Xbox One in February next year.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest RPGs of all time, the remake of Secret of Mana invites players on an action-packed adventure taking on the role Randi, along with his two companions, Primm and Popoi, as they battle a perilous empire to reclaim the magical power of Mana and bring peace and tranquillity to the world. Bless.

Awwww this is really lovely, it’s The Witcher‘s tenth birthday and here’s Geralt reminiscing.


Ubisoft Saguenay is the latest studio to be opened by the French publisher. It will have around 125 staff and it was announced by Yves Guillemot in the presence of the Prime Minister of Quebec, Mr. Philippe Couillard.

There is now going to be a Chuck Tingle game for PC and Mac. “Project Tingler [True Name Concealed Until Release to Protect From Dark Magics] is a brilliant blend of classic adventure games, dating sims, and Chuck Tingle,” reveals the Kickstarter.

The game’s cast includes Wil Wheaton and Mara Wilson, who you may remember as the very cute young girl in Mrs. Doubtfire.
