The frantic swordfighting of ‘Nidhogg 2’ arrives on August 15th

If you’re a fan of in-person two-player games, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Nidhogg. Its frenetic swordfighting is easy to pick up, difficult to master and oozing with Atari 2600-style visual charm. There’s only been so much you could do with its handful of levels and single-weapon gameplay, though, so it’s a good thing that a sequel is right around the corner. Messhof has revealed that Nidhogg 2 will reach the PS4, Mac and PC on August 15th, with PS4 pre-orders starting on July 18th. The title preserves the core mechanics — you’re still trying to slash through (or around) an opponent and make it to a screen on the far end of the map — but a lot has changed in the 3 years since the original.

The most obvious change, as you might have noticed, is the style. The studio decided to ‘upgrade’ to a 16-bit appearance for the sequel, so that means ’90s-like vivid colors and bitmapped graphics that let you customize your character. Also, you have more than your sword to fight with: bows and daggers help you throw curveballs into your rival’s strategy. There are ten arenas, to boot, so the game should stay fresh for that much longer. Nidhogg 2‘s look is polarizing (some have complained about the shift from a serious tone to silly), but the expanded gameplay might overcome any artistic quibbles.

Google drops Instant Search to unify mobile and desktop queries

Google introduced the by-now familiar Instant Search back in 2010. The idea was to make searching faster by updating the results of your search in real time while you typed. Now the company is dropping the feature, according to SearchEngineLand, to bring it more in line with mobile search. The change is effective today.

More than half of all Google searches happen on mobile, so it makes sense that Google would want to unify the way results are displayed across all devices. While you'll still be able to see search suggestions, the results below won't update until you click on Enter or a result, says SearchEngineLand.

"We launched Google Instant back in 2010 with the goal to provide users with the information they need as quickly as possible, even as they typed their searches on desktop devices," a Google spokesperson told Engadget in an email. "Since then, many more of our searches happen on mobile, with very different input and interaction and screen constraints. With this in mind, we have decided to remove Google Instant, so we can focus on ways to make Search even faster and more fluid on all devices."
