New Twin Peaks Trailer Shows Returning Fan-Favourite Characters

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png

Even though the long-awaited return of cult TV show Twin Peaks is only a few weeks away, until now we have seen very little actual footage from the new season. Last week, new shots of the town were released, and now we have a short teaser that reveals some of the key characters as they now appear.

The video includes Kyle McLachlan as Agent Dale Cooper, Everett McGill as “Big” Ed Hurley, Grace Zabriskie as Sarah Palmer, Michael Horse as Deputy Tommy “Hawk” Hill, and Harry Goaz as Deputy Andy Brennan. It also features Harry Dean Stanton as Carl Rodd, a character that appeared in the prequel movie Fire Walk With Me. Check it out below:

The new season is set to premiere with a two-part episode on Sunday, May 21 at 9 PM ET/PT. Showtime subscribers will be able to watch the next two episodes immediately afterwards on the network’s streaming service.

The following week, Episodes 3 and 4 will air on Showtime, before settling into a single episode a week until the two-part finale in September. This will air from 8-10 PM on Sunday, September 3.

The show’s co-creator, David Lynch, has directed all 18 of the new episodes. Several teasers for the season have been released over the past few months. These include one that compiled the many moments the characters have enjoyed coffee, while another showed Lynch, in character as Gordon Cole, snacking on a donut. In addition, we saw composer Angelo Badalamenti performing the show’s haunting music, plus a look at some on-set footage.

Disclosure: Showtime is a division of CBS, which is GameSpot’s parent company.

No Major Half-Life Writers Left at Valve

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png
If Half-Life 3 were to start development today, none of the primary writers for the series would be involved. Of that group, only Chet Faliszek remained until today. Faliszek ends his career at Valve today after 12 years and many fantastic titles under his belt, including both Episode DLC packs for Half-Life 2 along with

New For Honor Heroes And Maps Shown In Videos

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png

For Honor‘s Season 2 starts on May 16, and now publisher Ubisoft has released new footage of the maps and characters coming as part of the upcoming season.

First up are two trailers for the game’s new heroes, The Centurion Knight and The Shinobi Samurai. The Centurion (above) comes equipped with a standard issue gladius for close-quarters combat, and Ubisoft says the character will be a strategic fighter who “sees the battlefield like a chessboard.”

The Shinobi, meanwhile are silent warriors who move with “a dancer’s grace and kill with precision,” and they each wield a traditional Kusarigama–a deadly sickle-and-chain weapon. Take a look at the Shinobi below.

For Honor’s new maps have also been shown off for the first time. The first, Forge, is set in a wintry steel mill, while Temple Garden plants you in the beautiful and serene grounds of a traditional Japanese temple. Check out the footage of Forge here and Temple Garden here.

The arenas will be available to all players with Season 2 kicks off on May 16. The two new fighters will launch for free for season pass holders the same day, though other players will have to wait until May 23 to unlock them with in-game Steel.

Lastly, Ubisoft confirmed it would reveal new gameplay of Season 2 in a livestream tournament on May 16 via For Honor’s official Twitch channel. For more on the upcoming season of content, check out its debut trailer here.

Halo 5 Multiplayer Adds Rockets-And-Railguns Mode

https://static.gamespot.com/uploads/original/1179/11799911/3229314-halo.jpg

Halo 5 has a rotational social playlist, and now the next mode for it has been announced. As revealed on Halo Waypoint, the new playlist is Rock ‘n’ Rail, which sees players starting with rockets and railguns. It’s a pretty hectic and intense game mode, which debuted in Halo 4.

“While this new iteration of Rock ‘n’ Rail is inspired by Halo 4’s beloved Rock ‘n’ Rail mode, it’s been specifically tailored to better fit the Halo 5 sandbox,” multiplayer designer Sara Stern said. “Instead of basing gameplay around the use of jetpacks, we’ve altered the gravity, stabilizer time, and jump height settings to bring combat off the ground and into the air.”

No Caption Provided

In Halo 5, Rock ‘n’ Rail makes use of the game’s Spartan abilities, which you can use to boost high in the air. In turn, that might make landing shots a little more difficult.

Halo 5’s Warzone mode is also getting updated. Warzone Turbo will be re-introduced on May 12, while the Warzone Warlords mode returns for the May 26-29 weekend.

Finally, Halo 5’s newest ranked season, for May-June, is now underway. Here is a rundown of what’s new for this season, as written by 343 Industries:

NEW SEASON FEATURES

  • Soft Forfeit
    • It will be “safe” to leave if someone has already left the match (from either team)
    • No need to stay on to prevent a ban or extra point loss
    • No ban if someone has already left
    • No extra CSR loss penalty if someone has already left
    • You still lose the same amount of CSR as a normal loss
    • Leavers always lose CSR, regardless of how their team does after, so it’s better to stay if you’re on the winning / advantaged team until the other team leaves.
  • Reduced early-season wait times for higher-skilled players
    • High-skilled players sometimes get MMRs that are higher than is needed
    • These will now be truncated to a reasonable value at the beginning of the season
    • They are still high enough to prevent very uneven matches, but low enough to allow more timely matchmaking
  • Even Stricter CSR boundaries: Onyx population reduced again
    • The previously fixed inflation bug had inflated this despite the changes
    • We should see even stricter boundaries in the new season

Don’t see your favorite game here? Back in November, Microsoft said it is holding discussions with all major publishers and developers to possibly bring their games to the program. However, the decision about whether or not a game is added to the lineup ultimately comes down to individual publishers.

What do you make of the lineup so far? And what games would you like to see added in the future? Let us know in the comments below!

Prey Review [Gadgets 360]

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png
Gadgets 360 says: “Preys title isnt the only thing about it that feels familiar. As we stated in our first impressions of the demo, the gameplay is reminiscent of the likes System Shock and Deus Ex. Throw in a slew of scares kudos to the Typhon an alien race thats out to assimilate all human life and it had us thinking of sci-fi horror classic Dead Space. That’s not a bad thing though – Prey draws inspiration from a lot of sources, and it’s better for it.”
