Game Workers Unite appeared in United Kingdom

After the scandal around Rockstar Games, when it turned out that many of the company's employees were suffering from overwork, or crunchy, gaming industry representatives again started talking about the creation of trade unions. Today it became known that one of the associations of developers became part of the Independent Union of Workers of Great Britain.

According to, the British branch of the organization Game Workers Unite has received union status. The new department is the first organization in the world that officially represents the interests of developers.

Game Workers Unite intends to fight the "large-scale exploitation" of British developers. The union will pay attention to the lack of diversity of workers, unpaid overtime, contracts with zero time and other problems of the industry.

All former, current, and future industry representatives can join GWU, with the exception of those who can hire and fire employees.

The first meeting of the trade union will be held on December 16, at which official representatives of the organization will be elected.

According to the British Association of Interactive Entertainment, the UK gaming industry is the largest in Europe: it has about 47 thousand employees.

Anodyne 2: Return to dust

Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is quite different--you will still be crawling through dungeons out of a 2D view, Zelda-style, but in addition, it switches outside to 3D see during a few segments, providing you a very clear look at a few beautifully strange environment.

Protagonist Nova can change into a car, so there is driving blended in with all the platforming and fight. I enjoy the assortment of the surroundings and the camera angles from the trailer, over: the 3D camera occasionally follows straight behind Nova, but other times it is pulled-back, offering another perspective.

Like the first, the plot seems surreal. You are tasked with collecting Nano Dust growing across the territory of New Theland, which you must then recycle to"a mysterious thing, just called the'Center'".

We do not have a specific launch date yet, however you are able to trace Sean Han Tani, 1 half of their development group, on Twitter for routine gifs and updates. I guess it is one to see.

Dota 2: Road to the Immortal

How to boost Solo MMR in Dota 2?

What is needed for a successful raising of the solo rating? And how to quickly raise mr in dota 2? Most likely, images from professional games immediately pop up in my head, where the whole team plays very harmoniously, there is no 5 Carry in peak, no one is trying to love your whole family ... But in today's realities, when the Russian dota community is mired in the abundance of schoolchildren and degenerates playing "for fun" to have a decent rating is quite difficult. I will give a couple of good tips for the game:

In a solo rating, a lot depends on the peaks. Most often, you will have to adapt to your own, and to the enemy team, to play in each game in different roles. But in any case, try to choose heroes who, in the event of inadequate behavior of your team, will be able to fight off the enemy’s attacks alone (see below for specific heroes). You shouldn’t hope for your team in everything, but from the start it’s not necessary to count everyone as cancers either And with a good, and with a bad team, you can win games if you correctly use game situations to your advantage.

Как поднять MMR в Dota 2: легкие рецепты по поднятию рейтинга

If you are not satisfied with any action of your ally, first of all - not dizmoral! Swearing turns into arguments, mats and shouts, your team begins to feed, and in the end the game is again merged. It is best to try to calmly explain your team a mistake, and if your allies consider themselves to be right in everything, to whip them. Never give up. Even if you think that the loss of one side means a complete defeat. Remember, while your throne is standing, the game is not lost, and the comeback is real even for 2-3 k. If it seems to you that the upcoming fight in the enemy forest (for example) is obviously lost, but there is still a possibility to avoid it, it is better not to stick into it. Less die, do not go to the probable frags under the enemy towers. It is better to die 3-4 times per game and have 5-6 kills than 20 kills and 20 deaths.

Which heroes should you use to Boost rank in Dota 2?

The list of heroes for raising the solo rating is extremely small, since almost all the characters in DotA are created for team play. To boost Dota 2 MMR you will need next heroes:

Slark One of the pub benders, whose contra on low ratings causes problems for players. Given the fact that lately they have been collecting Shadow Blade shadowblade, it is becoming more and more difficult to hunt down and kill this fish. Thanks to his ultimate, Slark is able to escape from the most dangerous fights for life, and the first ability, pressed in time, drops all negative effects (including camps) from the hero. Slark paired with a support is able to make keels at early levels, and with the receipt of ultimate it goes to look for prey in solo.

Phantom Assassin. Very strong hero who is able to fight and humiliate opponents from the very beginning of the game. For players of 2-3 to the rating, the hero creates problems both because he is left on a free farm, and because many players on this rating farm are very bad, and by the time the Phantom is ready to bend over massive fights, none of them have a Monkey King Bar. What else are unexpectedly departing and big crits?


Templar Assassin. The templark answers the question - how to raise the MMD. If you learn to play well on this character, you can easily win the rink behind the rink. First, the hero is versatile and very mobile. Secondly, it deals a lot of damage, collecting only a couple of items, such as the Desolator desolator and Deadalus Crit. By the way, often experienced players raise MMPs on this particular character.

Drow Ranger. A hero that is fairly easy to manage, can stand in mid-light or in a light line. Trax has everything for good farming, pushing and fighting - slowing down, silence, a big increase in dexterity (and, respectively, to damage, attack speed and armor) with obtaining ultimate and aura for allies with a long-range attack. It does not require too much farming to engage in fights.

Timbersaw Timber is picky in choosing the line, can stand in solo or in double, in midi or in hard. For him, the most important thing is getting a fast level. 2 of 3 active skills of Timber have pure damage, so big troubles to the enemy can be delivered even at the stage of lining. Also a huge problem for enemy support is its passivation, which regen health and increases armor with each poking received. That is the same Rubik, standing against Timber, not only does not naharassit him, but also othilit.

From the support I advise you to take Ogre Magi, Crystal Maiden or Shadow Shaman. All of them have a good set of abilities and in order to survive with a minimum purchase, and make a good impact in the mass fights. And also, if the bark of your team is very bad, with a strong purchase these supports are able to work wonders, you just have to farm a little.

Anthem - expensive edition received its own Trailer

Infinity Blade | New weapon in Fortnite

The sword Epic teased last night is your Infinity Blade, the titular weapon in the programmer's mobile game, and you will have the ability to get your hands on it now. It is a mythical sword just discovered on Polar Peak and just one will look per game.

The Infinity Blade can destroy buildings and kill enemies with a single hit, doing 75 harm to individuals, and there is another fire which allows players jump great distances and cause lots of destruction.

--with greater health which also regenerates at 1 HP per minute, a burst of wellness with each slain enemy and improved movement rate.

You may just take the blade, however, and nothing else, apart from construction materials. Should you pick up the following product, the sword becomes lost and somebody can pinch it right from under your nose.

Patch 7.01 presents the blade and is available today. Have a look at the entire patch notes. Here is GamesRadar's James Jarvis selecting up it:

First story: in the event the accession of airplanes last week did not offer enough new things to occupy your time in Fortnite, now Epic has teased the accession of dragons into the match as part of Season 7. Much like the turnaround all things Fortnite, it is likely we will see blades added into the match in an upgrade coming shortly.

The trailer is pretty much everything we know about actors --it will be interesting to see how they fit in the game. We have seen blades become a popular fixture in Destiny, by way of instance, because let's face itit's not enjoyable to twat a competition with you, whichever game you are playing.

He did just that using Fortnite's stunt-friendly airplanes a week.

Fortnite Season 7 will continue two weeks more than anticipated so the programmers can have a winter break--at the run-up into the holidays, however, the speed of new things still looks pretty breakneck. We'll keep you updated when blades land at the sport.

Nier: YoRHa Edition | February release

Nier Automata: Game of the YoRHa Edition has been coming to Steam in February, Square Enix announced today. We have been anticipating the statement since it popped up about the ESRB site a couple of weeks ago.

The Sport of this YoRHa Edition will come with the 3C3C1D119440927 growth, 6 glider layouts (Grimoire Weiss Pod, Retro Grey Pod Skin, Retro Red Pod Skin and Cardboard Pod Skin Care ), an attachment and 2 backgrounds.

There is no word, sadly, on any repairs or enhancements to the unsatisfactory PC port. It started in 2017 and has not obtained any spots since, besides a DLC upgrade. Modders ended up putting it in great shape, however, despite the quality of the port, it remains a superb Platinum activity romp.

Check out Andy's Nier: Automata review.

Nier Automata: Game of the YoRHa Edition is due out on February 26.

Infinity Blade - Fortnite | Winter Royale

Fortnite's Infinity Blade popped into existence , killing individuals in a single hit, destroying buildings and bestowing anyone carrying it out using regenerating health. It's devastatingly powerful, much like Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet, and its inclusion during the Winter Royale tournament has created chaos. It's been a pleasure to watch, but some players are less than pleased.

The Infinity Blade isn't a balanced weapon. Just one spawns per match and it turns players to nearly unstoppable killing machines. It is like playing a WMD while everybody else just has scissors. That is the allure --it's crazy and absurd. It's a lot of fun, and while that's very good for the game in general, it is apparently less welcome at a competitive setting such as the Winter Royale.

Winter Royale players are competing for $1 million and also have no time for pleasure. The Fortnite Funny Twitter account sums up the issue. "Imagine playing Fortnite for an entire calendar year, you grind tough enough to qualify for the #WinterRoyale 1 million dollar tournament and you lose because Epic makes the decision to add a sword it is almost impossible to die together with the day of the tournament..."

The timing looks odd, especially when the EU qualifiers did not contain the sword, but every player in the championship is also in exactly the same boat. Some of them can lose to a sword-wielding maniac, just like some of them can drop from being shot in the head with a concealed enemy. And as irritating as I'm sure it is to eliminate a potentially huge payday simply because someone snatched a weapon before you could, it's much more fun from the spectator side of the competition. Aggressive Fortnite has never been so much fun to watch.

There's an argument the blade should've been locked away in a limited time event, not unleashed about the standard style and tournament, but where is the fun in that? Death to balance!

Artifact is dying right now | Gaben's greatest miss

At the previous 24 hours, it appeared in a not insubstantial 12,670 gamers, but that is quite the drop in the 60,740 parallel players in November 29. Additionally, it is gone a little lower. It started 2 weeks ago.

It peaked only after launching is not surprising, however, the decrease since then continues to be steep, particularly given that few other games on Steam possess the benefits it will. It is still enough to find a multiplayer game at this time, but we will continue to keep your eye on player tendencies and Valve's upgrades in the coming months.

It has had a fairly rocky start. At launch, it had been review blasted over monetisation, also when compared with other electronic CCGs, it is certainly expensive. It is not a match for folks on a small budget.

All these were problems raised within our Artifact inspection , but Will Bindloss managed to find a lot to enjoy about the sport.

Value for money, I am well aware, will be a huge element for most looking to purchase the game. However, the strength of this design will be sufficient to keep me hooked. Not merely will be Artifact's depth impressive, it also does not come at any fantastic reduction of availability. I'm eager to find that the metagame grow over the coming weeks and weeks. Let us only hope Axe's cost comes down a little.
