The List of PlayStation 4’s Crossplay Games

A generation ago, it would have been unthinkable to have multiple consoles play online against each other in some of the biggest multiplayer video games. Now, it’s almost unthinkable for them not to have it. Players are increasingly insistent that they can play their favorite competitive and co-op games with other people regardless of platform, and third-party developers are there to fulfill that desire, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

With Sony finally jumping into the cross-play initiative on a game-by-game basis late last year, it might be hard to figure out which games support cross-play and which do not. Here you can find a list of the games that you can play on PlayStation 4 with friends on other platforms.

Check Out a New Video of Upcoming Action RPG ‘Monolisk’ in Action

Back in May developer Trickster Arts unveiled the latest project that they had been working on, an action RPG called Monolisk. It featured a really cool art style, as well as environments that sort of “flew in” very similarly to the classic Bastion. It also featured five different highly customizable playable characters as well as all manner of loot to equip them with. Pretty standard fare for the genre, to be honest. What stood out about Monolisk is its emphasis on creating your own dungeons (which are called “Shards” in the game) and sharing them with others online. Those who play your creations can then rate them upon completion, and the creators with highly rated levels would be able to earn some additional loot for their efforts. It was a really cool concept and one you don’t really see on mobile. Now some four months later and Trickster Arts is showing off the first video of a user created Shard. This one features the Red Knight and was created by Khrypt.

Man, Monolisk looks really cool. And seeing how the developers say “Here comes the first of MONOLISK gameplay videos” I’d expect these …read more

GoCardless launches U.S. debit payments solution and opens San Francisco office

GoCardless, the London fintech that aims to become the one-stop shop globally for businesses that want to let customers pay via recurring bank payments, has launched a U.S. debit solution.

The company has also opened an office across the pond in San Francisco’s financial district, headed up by Andrew Gilboy, General Manager, North America, who was previously the company’s Chief Revenue Officer.

Specifically, GoCardless’ new U.S. product supports debit payments on the ACH (Automated Clearing House) network. This means that businesses can use the GoCardless platform to offer U.S. consumers the option to pay by recurring bank payments, as an alternative to a credit card, for example. Likewise, companies can use GoCardless for debit payments for B2B transactions, such as relating to SaaS subscriptions, invoices or instalments.

It is the B2B use case where GoCardless thinks there is the biggest opportunity for recurring payments, since, unlike in the U.K., for example, the biggest competitor would be writing cheques. That’s costly and slow by 2019 standards and doesn’t provide anything like the visibility that direct debits and ACH affords.

“By using the ACH debit network on the GoCardless platform, merchants can pull payments directly from their customers’ bank accounts, at a lower cost than …read more

Twitch acquires gaming database site IGDB to improve its search and discovery features

Amazon-owned Twitch has made a small but strategic acquisition designed to improve its search capabilities and better direct viewers to exactly the right content. The company is acquiring IGDB, the Internet Games Database (no relation to Amazon’s IMDb), a website dedicated to combining all the relevant information about games into a comprehensive resource for gamers everywhere. As a result of the acquisition, IGDB’s database will now feed into Twitch’s search and discovery feature set. However, the IGDB website itself will not be shut down.

Founded in 2015 by Christian Frithiof and a small team based in Gothenburg, Sweden, IGDB sources its gaming content both through community contributions and automation.

The site includes useful information for every game, like the genre, platforms supported, description, member and critic ratings and reviews, storyline, game modes, publisher, release dates, characters, and more. You could also find less common details like how long it would take to play the game in question, or the player perspectives the game offered, among other things.

And similar to IMDb’s mission of organizing everything associated with the entertainment industry, IGDB allowed voice talent to claim their profile on its site, in addition to listing …read more
