Press Start: Printable Pip-Boys, P.T.'s progeny, and Ouya's rescue

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

News took a siesta as summer entered the dog days' early afternoon. Sure, Razer swung in to save Ouya from itself, but much of the week in video gaming saw the usual parade of delays, announcements and straight-up marketing. Here is our recap of the past seven days in news, perspective and original reporting, to push reset on another week and get you prepared for the one to come.

Last Week in Five Stories

  1. Forget about the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition and 3D-print your own

    If you didn't pre-order the sold-out Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition, that's it? You're out of luck forever? Not quite. Thanks to Yvo de Haas at Ytec3D, you can 3D-print your own.

  2. P.T. was the jumping off point for Allison Road, not the blueprint

    Allison Road is commonly hailed as the indie answer to P.T., the teaser for Hideo Kojima's now-canceled Silent Hills. The comparison isn't unfounded, and Chris Kesler, who started Allison Road as a one-man hobby project, refers to P.T. itself as being "an eye-opener."

  3. Razer didn't save developers from Ouya

    It’s nothing revelatory to say the death and sale of Ouya is a disaster. I don’t think how Ouya approached things had to happen. Now things are a bigger mess than before, which you wouldn’t really think possible, but here we are.

  4. Rogue employee holds independent YouTube channel hostage, War Thunder CEO intervenes

    The CEO of Gaijin Entertainment says that a producer for War Thunder used DMCA claims to suspend, and effectively hold hostage, the channel of the most popular Russian-speaking YouTuber covering the game last week. The producer has since been relieved of his duties, and the channel returned to its owner.

  5. Mega Man Legends spiritual successor Red Ash will be made, with or without Kickstarter

    The Kickstarter campaign for Red Ash: The Indelible Legend, the Mega Man Legends-like adventure game from Keiji Inafune's Comcept, looks unlikely to hit its crowdfunding goal. But Comcept says development on the game's prologue will go forward, regardless of whether the campaign meets its goal.
