Denis Dyack and Shadow of the Eternals- Trial By Internet
How reputations are made and destroyed in the modern world
by David Hilton

There is a trial going on right now in cyberspace. And we are the jury.
At stake is the reputation of the man largely credited for the cult favourite Gamecube game Eternal Darkness and the future of the ‘spiritual successor’ to that title which is struggling for backers on Kickstarter, Shadow of the Eternals.
But the question is if the trial by the internet community is even valid or right, or simply a case of Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbel’s ‘if you repeat a lie often enough it will become the truth’.

OXCGN’s Second Look FUSE Preview
by Arthur Kotsopoulos

Back in December we got the chance to test out FUSE in both a single player and co-operative player capacity in the form of ‘Echelon‘.
Whilst the game retains the same high octane gameplay we first witnessed, this time around we were treated to a proper hands on with the games first 3 missions.
FUSE has been specifically developed with co-op in mind so it was only appropriate to start the game with 4 player co-op where each player chose their respective character.
Difficulty is treated like any other game played in co-op i.e; Borderlands 2 is scaled accordingly.
If you were to play the game on your own and leap between the other 3 characters, you won’t find the same challenge as you would with 3 other human players.
It was clear from the get go that the enemy AI adapt to your playing style and will enlist an array of tactics on the battlefield to complete their mission, eliminating you.

Earlier last week EA Games Australia invited OXCGN down to their Sydney office to check out the latest build of the Insomniac developed title, FUSE.
With a crazy 4-5 hour hands on preview either in solo or co-op we also got the chance to interview Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac Games.
With two sessions of FUSE under my belt I had a general knowledge of the game and how it implements co-op as well as what it does differently to other co-op shooters available on the market.
Sit back and enjoy the read of my interview with Ted Price which whilst short was sweet and quite informative.
