‘The Alto Collection’ Will Be Released for PC and Consoles on August 13

The Alto Collection bundle of Alto's Adventure and Alto's Odyssey available for PC and consoles on August 13Team Alto

If you’re a fan of Alto’s Adventure or Alto’s Odyssey, we’ve got good news: Team Alto is releasing both games together as The Alto Collection on August 13. The bundle will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store on that date and sometime later for the Nintendo Switch.

Though Alto’s Adventure was originally released on Windows, Alto’s Odyssey wasn’t, and neither were ever available on gaming consoles. However, with the massive success of both games, Team Alto has decided to bring the games to a wider audience so everyone can enjoy its relaxing (though difficult to master) gameplay. The procedurally-generated games offer stunning visuals of landscapes you can explore by snowboarding or sandboarding while rescuing llamas, escaping foes, and successfully landing tricks.

The Alto Collection will run you $9.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Game Store. Even better, you can grab it free on the Epic Game store until August 20th. No details have been released as of yet regarding price or the date of availability on the Nintendo Switch’s eShop, or whether any changes have been made to either game for this special bundle.

Playing ‘Flight Simulator’ at home feels like meditation

469a2763-d1f2-11ea-bffb-1b11d679e687Hummm. That sound has been playing on a quiet loop at the base of my brain for the past few days, propping up all of my other thoughts with soothing white noise. It’s the background tone of Microsoft Flight Simulator, which I’ve been playing in previ…

“Super Smash Bros Melee” Gets Online Multiplayer, 19 Years Later

Super smash Bros Melee screenshot

Despite coming out on a Nintendo platform near the turn of the century, Super Smash Bros. Melee is still a favorite among the hardcore fans of the series. The GameCube didn’t have much in terms of online capability, and Melee never had online multiplayer. But now a group of modders has given the game the online powers it always deserved.

It’s called Slippi, an add-on module for the popular Dolphin GameCube and Wii emulator, which is available for many operating systems. The setup includes rollback netcode, a high-performance software backbone necessary to make online matches of the super-quick Melee fights palatable to the most discerning fighting game fans. It even includes some basic matchmaking, prioritized by location for the fastest connection, and player tracking and replays are supported.

Actually using Slippi to remote play Melee with your friends is legally questionable, because it relies on emulation. (The general consensus is that, for the sake of your conscience if not the law, you should own a copy of the original game if you’re going to emulate it on your computer.) But it’s a great way for fans to play a beloved classic together, as Nintendo doesn’t seem interested in bringing many GameCube games to the Switch, and recent Smash Bros. games’ online multiplayer has been rudimentary at best.

Be aware that if you want to try Slippi, you’ll probably be thrown into the deep end of the Melee competitive scene. The current players are likely to be those who’ve been honing their skills for two decades.
