Bastion and Transistor, the first two games from indie studio Supergiant Games, were both visually stylish and wonderful games to boot. The studio's third game, Pyre, has just been revealed and it looks equally as good. Although it may be hard to figure out exactly what's going on in the trailer, like the studio's games before it, it will be a mix of classic game mechanics with wonderful hand-drawn art. But this time in the form of a party-based RPG, not unlike something we might have seen in the 16-bit era.
Some of the best moments from Elder Scrolls games have come from joining the Dark Brotherhood and taking part in quest-lines that feature more than their fair share of murder. And usually in a darkly funny fashion, like the quest in Oblivion where you attend a dinner party and then murder all the guests one by one as they scramble to try and figure out who done it. Funny stuff. Which is why its great to hear that the next bit of DLC coming to The Elder Scrolls online will feature the Dark Brotherhood, a game that's in dire need of some pitch black humour.
Yeah, the Xbox 360 is over 10 years old. It certainly doesn't feel that way, as over the years with numerous revisions both under the hood and on screen, the Xbox 360 grew from strength to strength into one of the most beloved consoles of all time. From the blade dash to avatars to Xbox Live Arcade and a long list of brilliant games like Gears of War and Mass Effect, the legacy of the Xbox 360 will be felt for a number of years. And after 10 years on the market Microsoft has discontinued production on the console.
On April 26 Rocket League will be getting a basketball-inspired new mode called "Hoops", as part of a free update. After the success of last year's ice hockey mode "Snow Day" which gave players an exciting new way to experience the game, "Hoops" looks to do the same, but with a focus on aerial acrobatics. Here's to remote controlled cars dunking oversized balls into rings.
It seems that most people have written off the Wii U, at least from a hardcore gaming perspective. Most people are looking to Nintendo's upcoming E3 presentation, where its next console, the NX, will be revealed. And most likely be completely different to anything you could probably imagine. But there's life in the Wii U yet, with Star Fox Zero due for release this Saturday on April 23.
It looks like the rumours of a new supped up PlayStation 4 headed to the market are true, thanks to a new Giant Bomb report that has been verified by a number of sources. The new console, code-named Neo, will provide significant hardware improvements to the PlayStation 4. And all without splitting the user base.
Prepare to be taken back to a time, 2011 or so, when people from all corners of the land of Azeroth fell head over heels for a new style of beat wizardry. The mystical arcane art called dub step. In this era of orcs and humans, there's a dark cloud on the horizon. And a dope beat. Which can only mean one thing. War. And Wubs.
Which means that the game launched without Guile. Who knew. Anyway the veteran Street Fighter character is finally coming to the game and will be made available to all players later for free this month. In other Street Fighter V news Capcom plans on introducing a new measure to combat rage quitters, namely one that will lock them out of matchmaking for a period of time.
YouTuber Many a True Nerd has adapted Fallout: New Vegas into a new interactive Choose Your Own Adventure (or in this case Apocalypse) video series. And much like the books from your childhood you're left with choices to make after a brief setup and proposal. But instead of flicking through pages, whilst keeping a finger at where you left off just in case you die, you're simply directed to the next video.
