directorygames | ROM Hack Lets You Play Super Mario 64 Online with 24 Others

0

If you’ve ever been curious what Super Mario would be like with multiple people at the same time, a new ROM hack is now able to answer your question. Super Mario 64 Online is precisely what it sounds like: an online multiplayer version of the Nintendo64 classic.

The PC ROM hack comes by way of Kaze Emanuar, Melonspeedruns and Marshivolt, granting players the ability to run through the full Super Mario 64 game with several other players at once.

According to the trailer for the hack, players have the choice of creating their own minigames within the ROM such as running their own races or playing hide-and-seek. Players have a selection of characters to choose from including Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and more, with many of the characters sporting unique attributes or abilities.

You can check out the trailer showcasing the online Mario game below. If you’re interested in playing, the video’s description includes download links and instructions.

Our Thoughts

This looks like an incredible amount of fun! We’re also pretty well concerned that this project will be shut down by Nintendo with great speed. Until such time as a cease-and-desist arrives, we’ll be hoping that people will have a great time with this ROM mod.

directorygames | Blizzard Prepares for BlizzCon 2017 with a Special Livestream

It looks like Blizzard has begun spinning up the Hype Drive in the lead-up to BlizzCon. A special BlizzCon livestream is set to premiere tomorrow with several reveals while the 2017 BlizzCon Schwag Bag has made its way into players’ hands.

The announced livestream will be hosted by Michele Morrow, Malik Forté, and Alex Albrecht. The stream will let players into the Blizzard Vault for a first-ever tour of the collection of artifacts, original art, and game code kept within. The stream will also detail changes being made to the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket and make initial reveals of in-game goodies that players will be getting. The livestream will broadcast on Wednesday, September 13th at 12pm PDT.

Speaking of goodies, the BlizzCon Goodie Bag has made its way into the hands of fans and media with yet another bundle of Blizzard trinkets. This year’s selection of schwag includes a BlizzCon backpack, an Overwatch backpack hanger figure, a Cute but Deadly Series 3 Overwatch figure, an Overwatch Series 4 pin, and a selection of six badges that can be attached to the backpack.

As for goodies that can be earned perhaps a bit sooner, the in-game store has had a new pet hotfixed into the game: Shadow the fennec fox, who changes from Shadow-aspected to Light-aspected randomly. This pet is not yet available in-game or on the shop website as of this writing, but the timing of the pet’s arrival seems to suggest that sales of the pet will be used to fund relief efforts for the recent hurricanes that struck the Florida and Gulf Coast regions of the US.

Our Thoughts

We’ve still got a couple of months to go, but that’s clearly not going to stop Blizzard from setting the pot to boil. Obviously, we’re looking forward to hearing and seeing more and will definitely report in once the curtain has been pulled back.

directorygames – Valiance Online Shifts Game Donations to Hurricane Relief

0

Valiance Online, one of the many “legacy projects” hoping to fill the swirling vortex left by City of Heroes’ shutdown, is stepping up to do the superhero thing in real life as well. For today, every dollar of Valiance Online donations will instead go to help fund disaster relief for hurricane victims.

directorygames - Valiance Online Shifts Game Donations to Hurricane Relief

From now until 11:59pm CST, every single dollar made on the Valiance Online donate page will go to help out Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization with focus on maternal and child health, disease prevention, and emergency preparedness and response. Direct Relief operates in all 50 US states and in 80 countries across the world.

Those who donate to Valiance Online will still receive the same rewards they would get if they were donating to the game’s development, including alpha access to the superheroic MMO.

“We care about community and want to do our part to help those afflicted by the devastation,” said SilverHelm Studios CEO Chad Dulac in a statement. “We empathize with all hurricane victims in Texas and elsewhere and wish for their safety during these difficult times.”

Our Thoughts

We are superheroes. This is what we do. We applaud SilverHelm Studios for their philanthropy and hope that this charity drive raises a huge amount of money for Direct Relief.

Battlegrounds Pushes a Massive Update to the Test Server – directorygames.net

0

Turns out that the switch to a less frequent update schedule is already producing some big results. The latest PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds test server update has a huge assortment of changes coming to the game, including a new weapon, optimizations, and a bundle of other adjustments and improvements.

Battlegrounds Pushes a Massive Update to the Test Server - directorygames.net

The new weapon in question is the Mini-14, a lightweight 5.56 semi-automatic marksman rifle. The Mini-14 has less damage output than other DMRs in the game, but makes up for the shortfall in high muzzle velocity and low bullet drop. The weapon can fit rifle attachments to the muzzle and magazine slots and can also sport any optic sight.

The game’s map will also see some tweaks with the addition of a new town, East of Stabler. There will also be a new fog weather effect just to make visibility that much more challenging. While the fog effect will see ramped up probability on the test servers, the chance for foggy weather rolling through the live game will be low.

The new test build also introduces a variety of animation and balance changes to thrown weapons, recoil updates for all weapons, tweaks to the game’s UI, and a host of optimizations and bug fixes.

The test patch should be available now according to rough estimates, while the overall changes could hit the live servers sometime later in the week. The full patch notes are here.

Our Thoughts

There’s not a lot of “sexy” changes in this build of Battlegrounds, but there are certainly a lot more fixes and adjustments which can only improve the already soaring popularity of this battle royale title. We’re definitely interested to hear what players think of the new weapon and the fog weather effect in particular.

directorygames | Fortnite is Getting a Battle Royale Mode

0

Maybe building a fort to survive waves of strangely adorable zombies is boring. Maybe you want more PvP. Maybe even a Fortnite Battle Royale mode. Well, if you’re playing the game in early access, your wish is Epic Games’ command.

directorygames | Fortnite is Getting a Battle Royale Mode

Fortnite’s take on battle royale comes by way of Epic Games’ Unreal Tournament team, who developed the mode in parallel with the core game and found it so much fun, they decided to open it to public testing. The new mode will stuff 100 players into a Battle Bus and have them drop into one large map to see who will be the last one standing. The new mode will feature the same building mechanics of the core game – including traps – but will add them to the new hotness free-for-all PvP mode.

The post announcing battle royale’s arrival confirms the obvious inspiration for the new game mode. “We love Battle Royale games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and thought Fortnite would make a great foundation for our own version,” reads the post.

The announcement makes a point to state that development of the battle royale mode is completely separate from the core Fortnite game in order to make sure balancing of one does not interfere with the balance of the other.

Fortnite Battle Royale mode is now available on the game’s public test server and will officially go live on Tuesday, September 26th for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Mac. A trailer heralding the new mode can be seen below.

Our Thoughts

And so begins the Great Battle Royale Gold Rush of 2017. With PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds already proving the mode can be a wildly successful standalone game, we wholly anticipate similar modes or individual games to start their run to the new shiny. Still, we’ll give Fortnite the benefit of the doubt and see just what their battle royale mode is all about before leaping to too many cynical conclusions.

Looking Ahead & Learning from the Past on directorygames

In 2008 the MMORPG world was graced with Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. Like Crowfall, WAR had been highly anticipated prior to release and was offering up some very innovative ideas, many of which were highlighted in charismatic updates by Paul Barnett. Being a spiritual successor to Dark Age of Camelot, WAR was often spoken of with elation among members of the DAoC playerbase who saw it as an opportunity to reinvent the revolutionary systems of its antiquated predecessor.

The Best Gaming Chairs on directorygames

Upgrade your gaming throne.

Updated: July 2017

As gamers, we’re incredibly devoted to the hardware supporting our hobby. Consoles, graphics cards, peripherals—let’s be honest, we’re kind of obsessed. But despite all the time and attention spent acquiring the best gear, one simple but important component is often overlooked: where to rest our butts. Though we used to be content sitting in a generic office chair, these days gaming and PC chairs come in all kinds of styles and price points so there’s no reason to settle. If you’re planning to expand your Twitch empire or just want to kill a few hours with your Switch, there’s a chair built just for you. Here’s a handy rundown of some of the best options on the market today.

Vertagear Racing Series SL4000

The Best Gaming Chairs on directorygames

YouTube stars, Twitch streamers, and eSports athletes all seem to be rocking the racing-style gaming chairs these days. While there’s a crazy amount of racing chairs available because of their high visibility, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better option than the Vertagear SL4000. While the cushioning is a bit firmer than that found on other chairs of its ilk, we prefer a chair with more of a solid cushion as opposed to being mushy. Assembling this beast will probably require the help of a friend, but you’re going to look great afterward in any of the nine color options.

MSRP: $339.99

Furmax Ergonomic Racing Chair

The Best Gaming Chairs on directorygames

If you like the look of a racing chair but don’t want to go whole hog, the Furmax Ergonomic Racing Chair strikes a satisfying aesthetic balance. It’s part racing chair, part office chair, and is really affordable too. It’s even available in several outlandish color schemes if you want to liven up the look of your office a bit.

MSRP: $66

X Rocker Pro Series Pedestal 2.1

The Best Gaming Chairs on directorygames

When it comes to rocker-style gaming thrones, X Rocker still leads the pack. The Pro Series Pedestal is our favorite of the line, thanks in no small part to the fact it would look right at home on the bridge of a starship. But beyond its cool design, the X Rocker features two speakers and a subwoofer all hooked up to a wireless transmitter to avoid unsightly cords strewn about the floor. The wireless transmitter works with RCA out, so depending on your setup you might need an additional adapter which costs around $30.

MSRP: $232

Big Joe Dorm Chair

The Best Gaming Chairs on directorygames

Big, expensive gaming chairs aren’t for everyone, especially if you live in a smaller space. For anyone currently grinding through games in front of a TV in a modest pad, the Big Joe Dorm Chair is made just for you. It’s filled with dense beans that conform to your shape, has handy pockets for your controllers, and is available in a variety of colors to match your room’s aesthetic. Also, while this chair is affordable at just $30, it’s not junk and sports quality double stitched seams and even has a handy handle on the top so you can easily drag it from room to room. Sit down, relax, and save your money for what you really want to spend it on: more games.

MSRP: $30

Modway Articulate Mesh Office Chair

The Best Gaming Chairs on directorygames

Sometimes you just want a basic, comfortable office chair without any bling or a luxury price tag, and that’s what you get with this humble model from Modway. It sports a mesh back for breathability, height adjustable back and armrests, and it’s available in an array of colors too including blue, red, and a lime green that looks suspiciously like it was made by Nvidia.

MSRP: $95

DXRacer Formula Series

The Best Gaming Chairs on directorygames

If you’ve ever watched Twitch you are probably familiar with DXRacer chairs. They are all the rage, and do a pretty sweet job of looking like a racing machine with stripes galore and a sophisticated design. This particular model includes racing stripes inlaid in the base along with 2″ casters. It’s available with either yellow, red, green, orange or “coffee” color highlights.

MSRP: $299

directorygames | 7 Pokemon Decks That Could Win the 2017 World Championships

0

Share.

From Greninja to Gardevoir.

With the 2017 Pokemon World Championships just around the corner, from August 18 to 20, we’ve got our eye on a handful of decks that could win the TCG tournament. The grand prize for the TCG Masters division tournament is $25,000, which is the largest payout of the whole championship (the VGC winner gets $10,000), making it a super competitive field.

Before we get to our picks for the top decks, we want to give a reminder of the craziness that happened last year. Everyone thought the metagame would be predictable with all the same popular decks that had been played all year long, but Japan’s Shintaro Ito surprised everyone when he took 1st place using Mega Audino-EX. That card was considered binder trash by most, but it also happened to be the silver bullet to last year’s metagame, allowing Ito to sweep the finals match in under 25 minutes. The lesson here is to take note of these powerful and popular decks, but also to always expected the unexpected.

If you’re unfamiliar with the new Pokemon GX card type introduced in Sun & Moon, then here’s a quick primer. Just like Pokemon EX, they are more powerful than regular Pokemon, but give up two Prizes when they are knocked out instead of one. However, unlike Pokemon EX, you have to evolve into Stage 1 and 2 Pokemon GX, which is offset by their big HP and strong attacks. Each Pokemon GX has a GX attack, and only one GX attack can be used per game, just like Z-Moves in the video game.

Now, onto the decks!

Gardevoir-GX

directorygames | 7 Pokemon Decks That Could Win the 2017 World Championships

With the new Burning Shadows set legal for Worlds but untested in any major tournaments, a lot of cards are going to make their big debut at Worlds, and top among them is Gardevoir-GX. The Fairy-Type attacker can swing for big numbers with minimal effort by using its Secret Spring ability to attach an extra energy and then attack with Infinite Force, dealing 30x the number of energy on both Pokemon. There’s also the excellent Twilight GX attack, allowing you to put 10 useful cards back into your deck. That Lysandre’s Trump Card was banned for having a similar (but much stronger) effect is a big indicator of how advantageous this can be. You can also toss in Gallade/Octillery to give the deck more consistency and an alternate, single-Prize attacker.

Garbodor/Drampa-GX won the recent North American International tournament, but Gardevoir-GX looks like it was practically engineered to take it down. If a Drampa-GX has three energy, then it only takes three energy on a Gardevoir-GX to deliver a OHKO, and Twilight GX can put all Items cards back in your deck, rendering Garbodor nothing put a useless pile of trash. Gardevoir-GX is unproven in the tournament scene, but players have hyped it up so much that it has given Metagross-GX a second life, all because it hits Gardevoir for weakness. Gardevoir-GX will definitely be one of the top decks, and therefore competitors will either be running Gardevoir-GX or be playing a deck that has a way to counter it.

Greninja BREAK

directorygames | 7 Pokemon Decks That Could Win the 2017 World Championships

Greninja BREAK is another deck that performs well against Gardevoir-GX. Due to Greninja’s low energy cost and the option to remove energy from it altogether, Gardevoir has to do all the work to earn its knockouts. This deck won 2nd place at last year’s World Championship, and although it can be finicky and auto-lose on the first or second turn sometimes, it has remained in the metagame because when it does set up properly, it’s insanely hard to stop it from relentlessly firing off Giant Water Shurikens all the way to victory. The addition of Guzma from Burning Shadows makes Greninja even more powerful because it allows you to toss a third shuriken per turn with its switching effect. And with Starmie’s Space Beacon ability, there will always be a supply of Water Energy at your disposal. Now, there are an abundance of Grass Type decks that are popular right now, which hurts Greninja’s chances due to weakness, but the inclusion of Talonflame BREAK lets the Greninja player hit for weakness too and gives them a fighting chance.

Golisopod-GX

directorygames | 7 Pokemon Decks That Could Win the 2017 World Championships

Speaking of Grass Type decks, Golisopod-GX is another strong contender from Burning Shadows. Its First Impression attack can do 120 damage for a single Grass Energy (150 if you have Choice Band attached), which is an insane number to hit on your first attacking turn. All you have to do is pull off a switch from the Bench to the Active position, an easy task with the likes of Float Stone, Switch, Guzma, and Golisopod’s own Crossing Cut GX attack at your disposal. Golisopod-GX pairs well with Decidueye-GX, Lurantis, Zoroark and the Eeveelutions, giving it a wide variety of partners for different strategies. We’re leaning more towards Zoroark and the Eeveelutions because they provide a way to combat Volcanion and stop it from burning Golisopod to a crisp.
