Say it ain't so CD Projekt RED! Why must you insist on a level of polish and stability that leaves a great first impression. Actually, now that you mention it, sure, delay the closed beta for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game that was originally scheduled to kick-ff next month. That we were super excited to play. We can wait an extra month. Sort of.
On September 15. And yeah, according to the Steam game page it looks like it'll no longer be a Windows 10 exclusive, and it'll even support older machines and the more prevalent DirectX 11. And right alongside the Steam release, Nordic Games will be partnering with Mircosoft Studios and Remedy for a physical special edition that will come packed with a bunch of goodies.
Or, that's what we've taken away from an invitation that was sent out to press for a "PlayStation Meeting" scheduled for September 7 in New York. An event that just about everyone is expecting to be all about the 4K-capable PlayStation 4 "Neo" console. The mid-generation upgrade that will provide a sizeable performance boost over the current PlayStation 4.
For those that need a friendly reminder, Project Highrise from SomaSim and Kasedo Games is very much a 21st century Sim Tower. A spiritual successor to the classic skyscraper sim from the '90s that's right up there with the greats. And after playing around with the Project Highrise beta for a few weeks now, we can definitely say that it more than lives up to its promise. And with a launch date now set for September 8, pretty soon you will too.
Making its debut in the mid-90s, Master of Orion was one of the defining strategy games of its day, and introduced many to the concept of 4X. That being eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate. Which made sense at the time, what with the 90s being all about extreme sports and something called the X Games. Anyway, Master of Orion is back! A modern re-telling of the classic series featuring an all-star cast including the likes of Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation) and Alan Tudyk (Firefly).
It would be impossible to score No Man's Sky from a review perspective right now. I've only had the game for 24 hours, and most other sites and journalists have only had it for as long as me, or as long as a couple of days. Still, it's not stopping us from throwing out a few initial thoughts as we grind through this seemingly infinite resource-gathering/crafting/trading/exploring space adventure.
One of the biggest comic book heroes of all time stars in probably Telltale Games' biggest endeavor yet, Batman: The Telltale Series. A new episodic series that puts players in the shoes of Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego Batman, as they navigate through the underworld of Gotham. With Episode One out now, we don the cape, cowl, and knee high rubber boots to give you our take on the latest Batman adventure.
Here's the thing, I've played through the original BioShock about a half dozen times. On both Xbox 360 and PC. The BioShock Collection which is coming September 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, contains all single-player content for BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock: Infinite. A new teaser trailer for the release has been released and it wisely focuses on the first outing. And based on looking at these very familiar locations, I just know that another play-through is right around the corner.
