GameSpot Says Farewell To The Lobby

Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening everyone: after four years, two hosts, numerous producers, and tons of fans, we're finally putting The Lobby out to pasture.
The Lobby started as a demo-driven show where GameSpot staffers gathered to play the newest games, while discussing the things they loved (and often didn't love) about countless releases. It then took on a talk show format, with the energy and leadership of Danny O'Dwyer, an array of intelligent guests, and a line of talented producers, including, but not limited to, Mary Kish, Erick Tay, Dan Mihoerck, Jean-Luc Seipke, and Richard Li. What followed were years of dumb jokes, heated arguments, and passionate monologues.
As GameSpot has evolved, however, along with video game coverage itself, it's become apparent that we're ready to try something new. We have several projects in the works, and you can be sure you'll see the likes of Peter Brown, Rob Handlery, Kallie Plagge, and myself just ..

Minecraft Boss Wants More Cross-Play, As Game Sets New Player Record

With the Better Together update last year, Minecraft added the first elements of cross-play for the popular sandbox game. For the first time, Minecraft players on Xbox One will be able to play with those Nintendo Switch when the feature rolls out, bringing the previously separated playerbases together. Cross-play is also supported with other platforms such as PC and mobile. One system that has not gotten in on the action yet is the PlayStation 4. Microsoft and Sony are reportedly still talking about adding cross-play someday, but it hasn't happened yet. Now, Minecraft boss Helen Chiang, in one of her first interviews since getting appointed to head of Minecraft, has said she hopes that one day the entire Minecraft community will be united–wherever they are.
“All of our players are playing across a number of different devices and platforms, and it shouldn't matter where they're playing,” Chiang told Popsugar. “What's important to us is that they have the opportunity..

RBI Baseball 18 Announced, Has Home Run Derby And Franchise Modes

After 20 years away, the R.B.I. Baseball video game series returned in 2014. A new game has been out every year since, and now 2018's title has been announced and detailed.
RBI Baseball 18 launches in March for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Among the topline new features for this year's game are the Home Run Derby and Franchise modes. Also new for the sequel are new player models and animations, along with visual updates for the ballparks for things like lighting, textures, and crowds. In terms of the player model updates, the game has more than 300 “digitally modeled” player likenesses, in addition to “hundreds” of new animations including player-specific ones.
As for the Franchise mode, this lets you control a team and do all the important things: make trades, sign free agents, draft rookies, etc. You can also mold a player and build their skills over time, eventually culminating in retirement. Franchise mode also lets you add “MLB Legends” to your roster; there are m..

Two Xbox One Games Will Be Removed From Xbox Game Pass Soon

Two titles in the Xbox Game Pass library will be removed from the catalog at the end of the month. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and WWE 2K16 will exit the catalog on January 31. As explained in this official Xbox Game Pass FAQ, you will lose access to both games come the end of the month, so you may want to play as much as you can.
The Phantom Pain launched into Game Pass on November 1, so when it leaves on January 31, it will have been in the catalog for three months. For what it's worth, Microsoft said from the beginning that The Phantom Pain would be removed on January 31, so this was no surprise. Further still, Microsoft sent an Xbox Live message to Game Pass subscribers last week informing them that The Phantom Pain (and WWE 2K16) would be removed from the library on January 31.
WWE 2K16 had been in the Game Pass library since the service launched in May 2017. The good news for WWE fans is that WWE 2K17 is among the additions to the Xbox Game Pass library for February..

The Incredibles 2 Full Voice Cast And More Details Revealed

The Incredibles 2, Pixar's sequel that fans have been waiting 14 years to see, finally comes to theatres this June. Now we know more about the cast and story. Disney today announced what is presumably the full voice cast, along with more details on each of them.
Disney made the announcement in a silly and clever way: with images themed around the recent art-history meme. You know the one. Starting with the returning cast, most of the actors from the Parr family–Craig T. Nelson (Mr. Incredible), Holly Hunter (Elastigirl), and Sarah Vowell (Violet)–reprise their roles. However, Dash is now voiced by Huck Milner. Samuel L. Jackson's character, Frozone, is back as well, along with fashion designer Edna Mode, who is again voiced by writer-director Brad Bird.

9 Big Games We’re Still Waiting To Hear About In 2018

A lot of games come out each year, but 2017 was especially busy. Between long-awaited games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Persona 5 to surprises like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds–and exciting announcements, like Dragon Ball FighterZ and Metro Exodus–it's easy to overlook some things. In the video above, we take a look at games that have dropped off the radar almost entirely.
Each year, we compile a list that have all but gone missing. After recent one-word tweet, presumably a hint that developer CD Projekt Red will have more to say in the near future, we've released Cyberpunk 2077 from our missing games list after three straight years of no news.
Not all games are so lucky, however, including Borderlands 3 and Dead Island 2. These games were announced or heavily hinted at in the past, maybe got trailers and gameplay, and then were largely unheard of–but not canceled.
See our gallery for the full list of this year's missing games, and let us kn..

Watch New Shadow Of The Colossus PS4 Gameplay

One of the most anticipated games coming to PlayStation 4 this year is the remake of the Shadow of the Colossus. Announced at Sony's E3 briefing in 2017, the game finally arrives on February 6, 2018 exclusively for PlayStation 4. You don't have to wait until then to see more of it in action, however. We recently got to play the game on a PlayStation 4 Pro, and you can check out an extended look in the video above.
Shadow of the Colossus was originally released in 2005 for PlayStation 2. The new version is being developed by Bluepoint, which made 2015's Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
Shadow of the Colossus is regarded as a masterpiece, with special praise for its worldbuilding and visuals, along with the 16 gigantic bosses. The new edition has more visual filters, HUD options, and control settings.
In addition to this video, you can watch GameSpot take down the first five bosses in Shadow of the Colossus here.

New Tomb Raider Movie Footage Revealed

The new Tomb Raider movie starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander in the lead role hits theatres in March. We've already seen some full-length trailers, but now Warner Bros. has released a pair of bite-sized trailers that you can expect to see on TV soon, if you're not already.
The new TV spots set up part of the story, which appears to be similar to the 2013 video game reboot that served as an origin story of sorts for the title character. We'll see Croft travel to an island in search of her missing father (The Wire's Dominic West), while squaring off against a villain played by Walton Goggins (Maze Runner, Sons of Anarchy). Both trailers use a remixed version of Destiny Child's “Survivor.”
Tomb Raider was directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave) and also stars Warcraft's Daniel Wu. The film was produced by Graham King, who won an Oscar for his work on the Martin Scorsese mob movie The Departed. It hits theatres on March 16.
