With Nintendo Switches starting to make the rounds to various press outlets one thing has become clear, the system at launch will very much be limited to being a games-only console. In that there will be an eShop that'll sell digital titles, but the system itself won't have any additional features like a browser or social apps. Those will be coming later, including Virtual Console stuff. Which means no classic NES, SNES, N64, and GameCube games for a while.
At a recent Mass Effect: Andromeda event I got the opportunity to put the moves on an Angaran, one of the new races in Mass Effect Andromeda. The Angaran, who looks like a person with the face of a cat and the head of a squid, seemed receptive to my advances. I even asked him if we could 'get together ...
When you take a moment to stop and think about it, trying to walk around in all that medieval armour is kind of a ridiculous proposition. Especially when it's not that great a defense against, you know, swords. But, it does look cool. And For Honor understands the appeal of (real) old-school fighting as it gives players the option to suit up as either a Knight, Viking or Samurai warrior. So then, is it any good? Well, read on to find out.
For those that have played the wonderful Rogue Legacy the above headline should be enough for you to plonk a wad of your hard earned cash onto the digital counter and proclaim to the disinterested sales person (also digital) "One copy of Full Metal Furies please!" Because, hey, Rogue Legacy was like capturing lightning in a bottle. It was awesome. Full Metal Furies, which looks like a co-op brawler crossed with an action-RPG, is the next game from CellarDoorGames. And we're ready.
Even though it went free-to-play on PC, that transition never happened for the console versions of Evolve. But, thanks to being a part of Xbox's Games with Gold lineup next month, Evolve: Ultimate Edition will be made available for free to all Xbox Like Gold subscribers. Also included in the free offerings will be Layers of Fear for Xbox One, and Borderlands 2 and Heavy Weapon for Xbox 360.
Filtered through the strangeness of the classic PC game 'Another World'. Now, a pixel art driven 2D indie action-platform-thing is not exactly uncommon in the modern era of crowdfunding. But, that being said, there's something about Narita Boy, from indie developer Studio Koba, that has us in a daze. A story about "a legendary digital hero in an epic quest through simultaneous dimensions", with Floppy Disk surfing and Techno Swords.
Described as the largest expansion to date for The Elder Scrolls Online, Morrowind will take players to the legendary island of Vvardenfell. The home of giant mushrooms, misty river towns, weird creatures, and plenty of magic. After the recent cinematic trailer, today we've got our first proper look at the new location. And yeah, it definitely looks and feels like Morrowind.
Okay, so remember how we reported on the rumour that Doomfist probably won't be the next hero to join the ranks and how it might be a Greek Character. Well, scrap that noise, because thanks to a rather cryptic new post by Blizzard we're now of the belief that it'll be a prodigious child's robot. Or, robots. Thanks to a post over on the Overwatch Blog, an interview with 11 year-old inventor Efi Oladele of Numbani, the speculation timer has effectively been reset.
Strewth! Colour us cobbers surprised, because we weren't expecting to see us Aussie drongos making an appearance in Civilization VI anytime soon-erydoo. That's right, coming soon to the excellent Civilization VI, Australia! The land down under, beaches, beer, cork hats, and so forth. Okay, so it's easy to poke fun at Australia's isolation from the rest of the world, but this news is pretty damn cool considering how great a game Civilization VI is.
Remember all those campaign promises about no rise in GST? And how as a nation we could collectively look over some light human rights violations in order to keep prices "as they is." Well, time to sharpen those pitch forks, because Valve and Steam will be implementing GST into sales starting in July. Okay, so it's not exactly the end of the world. And this is something we've been expecting for a while. But still, it's a good time as any to start complaining.
