According to Microsoft Flight Simulator, there’s a giant 212-story tower in Melbourne
Enjoying the newly-released Microsoft Flight Simulator? Try sightseeing around Melbourne, Australia, where a massive 212-story tower has appeared inside the city limits, despite no such building existing in real-life. (this will come as no surprise if you tried flying around London and noticed Buckingham Palace looked a little…modern)
Turns out that Flight Simulator pulled its building data from OpenStreetMap and the building in question was only supposed to have two floors, not 212. Whoops!
Paradox and Hardsuit fire Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Narrative Director and Creative Director
There’s a fair bit of drama brewing behind the scenes of the next Vampire: The Masquerade game – both the narrative lead Brian Mitsoda and creative director Ka’ai Cluney were suddenly terminated in a joint decision by Hardsuit Labs and publisher Paradox Interactive.
This is odd considering that:
- Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is expected to ship sometime in 2021
- Brian Mitsoda was the lead writer for the original V:TM Bloodlines (2004)
RockPaperShotgun has a great writeup on the situation as well as Mitsoda’s full statement.
Hardsuit Labs, located in Seattle, was founded in 2015 with the same goal as every other game development studio that has ever existed – to make great games. What sets us apart is the way we make that happen: It’s all about our people.
Wasteland 3 gets multiplayer co-op for August 28 release
I don’t know if I’ve just been living under a rock during Coronavirus, or InXile Entertainment is just horrible at marketing, but it seems that the squad-based Wasteland 3 is not only releasing on August 28, it’s also bringing two-player co-op gameplay:
Both partners can work together in the squad-based tactical combat and also make separate story decisions (in the trailer, it looks you can complete quests with competing factions by playing both sides). Sounds very Divinity: Original Sin-esque.

Is a Prince of Persia Remake coming in November?
Sources say yes! Well, that is if you believe a random Twitter user that posted a screenshot from a Guatemalan site that reportedly had the game listed for preorder. Phew!
I have many fond memories of the original 2D Prince of Persia, and one of them is the music that played whenever you died.
