Anybody remember Dead Island? Well, now it's back. In fact, Techland just released Dead Island Definitive Collection, which includes the graphically improved original game, Dead Island Riptide and the side-scrolling beat-em-up, which Blake just finished.

Check it out:

The world is going to pieces around the portly protagonist of Dead Island: Retro Revenge, but he doesn’t seem to give a shit. Well, that was at least the case until some soulless vagrant stole his precious pussy. Max, who is half-heartedly voiced by veteran comedic actor Jack Black, is now on a mission to rescue his poor defenseless kitty, Taken style; leaving no living in his wake. So, how exactly did Max acquire the ability to fight like Jackie Chan, while looking like he ate Bruce Lee? It is hard to say, but buckle up and get ready to whip some serious undead ass.

Read our review of Dead Island Retro Revenge (PC).

Our review of Dead Island Definitive Edition will be posted tomorrow.

Today, developer Madmind Studio has announced their very first project - game called, Agony. This one is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is slated to hit stores in 2017.

They have described it as a first-person survival-horror game that takes place in deepest pits of hell. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4. Players will awake in hell as a tormented soul and have no memory of recollection their past. The main character will apparently have the ability to possess and control demons.

The developer has stressed that their team have previously worked on projects like Tom Clancy's The Division, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2.

Overwatch seems to have fans and critics alike fanning themselves over it, but how did our resident MMO reviewer feel about it? Was he just as over the moon?

See for yourself:

As you play, fulfilling whatever role you play will garner experience and affect your rank at the end of the game. Sure, things like kill streaks, damage dealt, and sticking to the map objective raise your score, but the best bet is to play your role. If you are support, supporting your team with healing, shielding and other boosts are tracked so everyone’s effort is rewarded. Team work and team balance are the keys to victory. This is why ping ponging between different characters within a single game based upon what the other team throws at you is so important. No one role is more important than another and this is where Overwatch really shines; everyone has to work together and play their role to the fullest in order to succeed. The interplay between team mates, combined with the checks and balances of each character played on either team means you have to constantly assess the situation and be ready to adapt if needed. Simply put, if you put your ego ahead of your team, you will usually be on the losing side. On the flipside, if you have team mates who don’t quite get this concept, you job is going to be much harder and winning the round will be an uphill battle.

As some of you may have realized by now, CD Projekt RED has patched their RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, to version 1.20. The update also coincides with today's launch of the Blood and Wine expansion.

Here are some of the changes that were made to gameplay:

Gameplay

  • Updates description of Superior Blizzard potion. Potion now slows time for a short period whenever an enemy is slain. Additionally, during this period actions do not deplete Stamina if 3 Adrenaline Points are available.
  • Fixes issue whereby indicator for Oil charges would appear incorrectly in New Game Plus mode.
  • Fixes issue whereby Flood of Anger skill could endlessly increase Sign intensity.
  • Fixes issue whereby Ciri could be missing her scabbard in certain situations.
  • Fixes issues whereby damage from Northern Wind bombs could be calculated incorrectly.
  • Fixes issue whereby pool of experience points would invert to negative value when player reached level 70 cap or used Potion of Clearance.
  • Fixes PC platform-specific issue whereby only the 'E' key would open Stash chest despite user manually changing relevant key binding

So, I have to admit that yesterday's episode of Game of Thrones was rather disappointing. It wasn't crap - let's face it, GoT is never crap. However, Season 6 has proven to be pretty solid, except for episode 1 and, well, last night's episode. Don't want to go into any details or spoilers too much. Suffice it to say, seeing Aerys II Targaryen (the Mad King) for two micro seconds was the highlight of the episode; for me anyways.

As for gaming, I guess I'd better jump back into the zombie-slicing fest, better known as Dead Island DE.

A new fan mod is underway for the original 1993 classic Doom called "DOOM for Doom," that brings in the new weapons from 2016's DOOM.

Every weapon has been imported into the older game, including the secondary modes added to the classic weapons. The mod hasn't been released in full yet, but the fan creator has released the following teaser to show what they have made in action. It looks incredibly fun.

The latest DOOM released on May 13, 2016 to critical acclaim. You can check out our full review here.

Surprisingly and yet not surprisingly, fans have swarmed to create porn based upon Blizzard's latest gaming phenomenon, Overwatch. The Overwatch porn has grown in popularity to the point that Pornhub even took notice when Overwatch porn spiked their searches 817% on the day the open beta went live.

Blizzard isn't too pleased with how their IP is being used, and they are sending out takedown notices to all sites depicting Overwatch characters doing porno-y things. In particular, they are targeting the porn that uses assets directly from the game. Overwatch porn creators have received DMCA takedown notices as well as copyright infringement claims for using assets owned by Irdeto USA, which is a security company that specializes in securing digital content. Many have speculated that Blizzard has utilized this company to find those who are using the company's assets without permission. Using Blizzard's assets to create porn is most likely without permission.

One such porn creator, a Reddit user called "spornm," admitted that his videos were made with Valve's Source Filmmaking Kit, which takes assets right out of game. That is, undeniably, using Blizzard's assets without permission and using said assets for content they didn't create.

In other words, if you really need to create some Overwatch porn, create your own Overwatch assets to do so.

Vivendi has now received support from Gameloft shareholders to take over the company after offering €8 per share after already owning 29.5% of Gameloft's shares. 

The board and owners of Gameloft are less than pleased with this arrangement, and they have declared this a hostile takeover. The board and owners happen to be the Guillemot family, the same family that owns Ubisoft. The Guillemot family has rejected all offers from Vivendi for their share acquisition.

Bloomberg has reported that with Vivendi in position to now acquire Gameloft, they will be in reach to be part of the board of Ubisoft. Vivendi currently holds 17.7% of Ubisoft's shares, and by acquiring board representation, they could increase their shareholder stake.

Vivendi sent the following statement to the AMF, the French market regulator:

Vivendi intends to seek a restructuring of the board of Ubisoft Entertainment for the purpose, in particular, to obtain a coherent representation with its shareholder position.

Yves Guillemot has been calling upon Canadian shareholders to increase their stake in the company in order to keep Ubisoft free from a Vivendi hostile takeover.
