Blade Runner is a 1997 video game developed by Westwood Studios. However, you can’t play the game because it runs too fast on modern machines and the devs lost the original code when they shifted offices. But dedicated fans have managed to make Blade Runner Immortal playable on modern machines and it took them just 8 years. Thomas Fach-Pedersen along with his small team managed to run Blade Runner using the ScummVM. However, you need to own the original game and even then the game requires additional fixes to make it playable. The original game is technically playable, but needs some fixes to get it working. But not everything works properly. Some parts of the game are written in such a way that they simply run too fast on modern computers. The reason why Thomas Fach-Pedersen and team are spending so much time to make the game playable is that…

How long has it been since we saw a Half-Life game from Valve? Yet despite overwhelming demand from the community Valve refused to work on it for over a decade. The good news is that the Half-Life community is still alive and thriving. Members of the community started a new Half-Life project under the codename “Borealis.” Fan made Half-Life 2 Episode 3 Project Borealis uses a highly modified Unreal Engine 4. Unlike the traditional Half-Life engine (Source Engine), Unreal Engine 4 is a well-rounded tool. Project Borealis has been in development for a while but finally, we have gameplay. And let me tell you, Valve needs to take a look at this and higher these guys to develop an official game. Team Borealis released a five-minute gameplay video from a work-in-progress section. In the level we see Gordon infiltrate a Combine facility. Most of the elements we see in the…

Shenmue 3 class action lawsuit might be around the corner. Disgruntled fans are demanding refunds and threatening Ys Net with lawsuits. Ys Net generated millions from its Kickstarter but refuses to honor the contract with its backers. According to recent updates, PC players may not get the promised physical edition. Not only Shenmue 3 is an Epic Games Store exclusive, but it could also be digital only on PC. Shenmue 3 Kickstarter backers received confirmation emails for Steam and physical versions. But the Epic Games Store deal threw Ys Net’s original plans out the window. Ys Net responded to the criticism earlier and promised to “assess” the situation after E3 wrap up. The post got more heat from the community who at this point only wish for a refund. We want to make sure that the Backers are aware that we are listening to their concerns. We kindly ask all…

With The Division 2 TU4 rolled out on the live servers, the game now has its first piece of Exotic Gear: a holster called the Dodge City Gunslinger Exotic Holster alongside the new Gunner specialization. It’s a pretty good holster given the fact that it can work with different niche builds. It’s definitely not a must-have holster for every build out there, especially if you’re chasing certain Attributes/Talents, but there are other Exotic Armor pieces on the way (hopefully!). One important thing to note about the Dodge City Gunslinger Exotic Holster is that you can equip with Liberty Exotic Pistol, making it one of the better holsters for pistol builds. You can also use it to replace holsters with “Fill ‘Er Up” (LMG builds) since you’ll reload both your LMGs faster with the Exotic Holster equipped. The Division 2 Dodge City Gunslinger Exotic Holster Before we begin talking about acquiring…

Call of Duty Modern Warfare is censored as reported by many websites. The news sparked a wave of disappointment in the community because fans hoped for an authentic war experience. But rest assured, the reports aren’t true. Despite pressure from the mainstream media, Infinity Ward will not censor Modern Warfare. Infinity Ward has confirmed there is no censorship in Call of Duty 2019. There will be content cut from the game but not due to censorship. Furthermore, during the course of development, many aspects of the story and gameplay are often put aside. There is nothing to worry about as IW will deliver its true vision. Addressing the ongoing censorship rumors, Narrative Director Tylor Kurosaki said: “We never would. Those are rumors. Not true.” Tylor confirmed that the only content removed from the game is the one that doesn’t work. Cutting and adding content is a routine practice and part…

At RespawnFirst we aim to publish quality content and do our best to make sure you are well informed. The purpose of any review is to make sure you know if a product is worth your money. And Anthem is clearly not. After playing the game since release I only need a few paragraphs to review this game. And even that paragraph I will summarize in one sentence for your right now: Anthem is a horrible. Anthem took 6 years to develop but the final product, even after months of its release is no way near what BioWare promised. Anthem has fundamental issues with its loot system, customization, and progression. The lack of a meaningful story mixed with horrible animations, cut content, and server issues make the game unplayable and highly uninteresting. There are numerous glitches including a persistent teleportation glitch. You are constantly teleported back to where you started.…

For the past few years, Microsoft has made efforts to bring Xbox and Windows together. But the most significant step toward the goal came in the form of Xbox Games Pass. Microsoft is bringing Xbox games to PC via Xbox Games Pass. While that is good news Xbox Game Pass isn’t the only option in the works. PC gamers should look forward to Microsoft games on Steam. According to Head of Xbox Phil Spencer, Microsoft wants to and will bring Xbox games to Steam. Phil Spencer confirmed the company plans to bring games to Steam but there can be issues. Spencer explained that issues can occur with rights in certain situations. Despite that Microsoft will do its best to bring as many games as possible to Valve’s Steam. My expectation is that our games will be available on Steam. You can never say ‘always ever’, because then something will happen…

Uplay Plus is Ubisoft’s very own subscription service. The creator of Assassin’s Creed and The Division is moving into the new era. The service will rival EA’s Access and Origin Premier. Ubisoft announced the service at E3 2019. Interested parties can sign up right now. It gives access to many current and upcoming games from the French video game maker. The service is exclusive to Windows PC and Google Stadia users. Those on PlayStation and Xbox won’t be able to access it. This decision isn’t surprising. Digital is booming on PC and console players still prefer physical copies. It makes sense to launch Uplay+ on PC first. But as we head into the next generation of console, we may see Uplay+ on consoles. Uplay Plus Price — The service costs $14.99 a month on PC. Google Stadia users will need to pay extra to play. Will Stadia users need to…

Nolan North and Troy Baker are two of the most talented voice actors. Who wouldn’t want them in their games? Well, there was a time when Sony didn’t. Troy Baker’s casting almost happened for The Order 1886. But for some reason, Sony said no. Ready At Dawn wanted Troy to play Sir Galahad in The Order 1886 but unfortunately, it didn’t happen. Speaking at the E3 Coliseum Troy Baker revealed what happened. .@TroyBakerVA originally voiced Sir Galahad in The Order! – @ru_weerasuriya #E3Coliseum pic.twitter.com/I5tXUjKNd3 — The Game Awards (@thegameawards) June 13, 2019 Ready At Dawn and Sony went with Steve West for Sir Galahad.

Troy Baker may come on-board for the sequel to The Order 1886. The first game released during the early days of PS4.…

Google Stadia plans to offer free games to its subscribers. According to Google Stadia Vice President Phil Harrison, they are considering free game giveaways to subscribers. Google Stadia is giving away free subscriptions already to those who buy games from Google. But free subscriptions aren’t as encouraging to consumers as free games. Google has a paid subscription model for Stadia yet if you buy the game from Google you can play it for free. The company didn’t mention how much Stadia games will cost. Still, it is clear that the pricing will be competitive with the industry. Pricing for digital games is a long-running debate. Should digital games cost less compared to their physical counterparts? Well, fans sure seem to think so. Distribution cost is low while the manufacturing cost is none. Another interesting aspect of digital games is the lack of discounts. Physical games discounts are normal in the…
