Tabletop gaming has made a pretty big comeback since the geeks took over the Earth with our blockbuster superhero movies, decent TV shows, great games and that there cosplay. And in a fitting move, an adaptation of the Aussie-developed dungeon-crawling card game Hand of Fate, from Brisbane-based Defiant, is taking the real-world plunge, this week taking to Kickstarter for a bit of help.
The news that we were all dreading has finally come to pass, Rockstar has pushed back the PS4 and Xbox One release of the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 until Autumn 2018. Which resets the countdown clock to just about a year. Citing the usual 'we needs more time to make it da best game possible' reason, it's both understandable and a blow to those looking to live-out their Great Western fantasies later this year.
At "participating retailers, exclusively in Australia and New Zealand" for the price of AUD$89.95/NZD$99.95. Partly due to the fact that Australia is a playable civilisation for the first time in the series, which means the Deluxe Edition will come with all additional civs released so far -- including Australia, Persia, Macedon, Poland, and the Vikings Scenario Packs.
An ominous title to be sure, and if you're of the sort that likes to wait until a full season is done before diving in then now's the perfect time to start on Season 3 of Telltale's The Walking Dead. Episode 5 'From the Gallows' wraps up the story on May 30, and as we fall into the category mentioned in the opening sentence we'll be starting our run this week.
But it won't be revealed at E3 next month. For those that have played Life is Strange, the adventure game that basically out-Telltales Telltale in the presentation and story department, it was a surprise gem that caught many people off guard. Me included. The supernatural and sci-fi story filtered through the guise of a high school teen drama is still an experience that I think fondly of today.
With big savings on Enter the Gungeon, The Talos Principle, Shadow Warrior 2, and Broforce, and the first Hotline Miami. Because you, know Australia. The sale is happening all weekend, with up to 90% off selected titles. Including a few package deals like the entire Serious Sam lineup for $11.09 USD.
Formerly known as Battle.Net. And yeah, pretty big news. The PC version of Destiny 2 will released and played via the Blizzard App launcher, which is a definite first. And one that makes sense as Activision and Bungie, unlike other content provders and publishers, don't really have their own PC-specific launcher.
