Regalia - Review @ COG

by Hiddenx, 19:42

COG has reviewed Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs:

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs Review – A Cornucopia of Brilliant and Wonderfully Executed Ideas

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs Review

As a lover of tactical roleplaying games, I was excited to jump into Regalia. It boasts of having everything I want: a long questline, intense combat, a relationship building system with your party, and funny dialogue. But how will it stand against the goliaths of Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy?

Regalia starts on the happy note with the death of Kay’s father. Kay then learns that he is now the rightful ruler of Ascalia, a faraway kingdom which has apparently seen much better times. Teaming up with his two sisters and his personal bodyguard, he sets off to find his new kingdom and do whatever it is kings do. Kay soon finds out that he not only inherited the kingdom, but also all his predecessors’ debt. To appease the taxman, Kay must gradually rebuild the kingdom and chip away at the enormous amount of debt that has built up; which is something I sadly can relate to.

[...]

All in all, I found Regalia to be much more fun than I had anticipated. Whenever I hear the phrase ‘Funded by Kickstarter’ I do tend to second guess my purchase, but after seeing how Pixelated Milk intended to spend their money, I was completely reassured. The end-product of this was engrossing and an absolute blast to play. The few negatives I found were a nuisance to play with, but it didn’t detract much from the experience, and with the introduction of New Game+ I’ll definitely be hopping back into check on my Kingdom throughout the week.

The Good

  • Likeable and distinctive characters
  • Good music & voice acting
  • Does a good job at storytelling
  • Challenging battles

The Bad

  • Slow start
  • Lots of cut scenes that breaks up the fun

Score: 79/100

Battle Brothers - Review @ Darkworld Gaming

by Hiddenx, 19:29

Darkworld Gaming has reviewed the tactical RPG Battle Brothers:

Battle Brothers Review

Thorismund wasn’t very special. As our campaign started, as they all do in Overhype Gaming’s Battle Brothers, with our band being slaughtered by Hoggart and his men, he was one of the three that was left. In our very next fight, where he was one of seven in the band as we took revenge against Hoggart, Thorismund was struck down with a permanent injury. Brain damage, the game told me; one of many injuries your men can take in the line of duty. So be it, I thought, and armed him with a two handed axe. He can go at the front, take some damage, and die valiantly for the company. That’s all he’ll be good for. Yet Thorismund, despite his addled state and lack of understanding about colours, standing and which way is up, had other ideas. He took three heads off at the shoulders in that battle. Then another two in the next fight. Whenever Thorismund got a kill, the head came off. Every. Single. Time. Thus, Thorismund Headtaker was born; and he would not die.

[...]

Summary

Battle Brothers is a fantastic turn-based RPG with some real time elements as well. It has a superb graphical style, excellent music which changes depending on what you're doing, as well as addictive gameplay which will just keep you coming back. Any XCOM fan who has even a slight interest in a Game of Thrones style world must buy this!

Score 4.8/5

Diablo 2 - Median XL Mod Update

by Hiddenx, 19:18

PC Gamer reports that the Diablo 2 full conversion Median XL just got a big update:

Diablo 2's Median XL mod just received a huge update

It increases the level cap and adds heaps of new content.

The developers of Median XL describe their creation as "the greatest Diablo II full conversion mod", and you know, they might have a point. It's a massive modification that adds piles of new skills and items, improved AI, endgame "uberquests" and more. It's where you go when you want more Diablo, but you don't want to turn to Diablo III.

The enormo-mod just got even more, er, enormous with its 2017 update, which arrived a few days ago. You can find the full changelog here, and grab the mod itself from here, and if you don't fancy combing through that huge document, I've summarised the main additions below.

Kingmaker - Impressions from GeekDad

by Silver, 14:51

GeekDad did a write up of his experiences at PaizoCon 2017 which includes his impressions of Pathfinder: Kingmaker and some screenshots. GeekDad also captured a video snippet of the game.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker: We were treated to a bunch of the concept art for the computer based RPG of Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Lisa Stevens, Paizo CEO said that the game was probably a year out and currently had a couple of hours of content. I had the opportunity to demo the game during the day and it is much farther along than I expected. It was completely playable, and the developer said they had about four hours of mostly finished content, and more in various stages of development. They are planning to release with all the content and options from the Core Rulebook, and are expecting to do a Kickstarter, possibly in June, to add more classes, companions, and features. What I saw showed a game fun to play and pretty true to Pathfinder. The character sheet showed feats, and leveling choices that match what you make in the paper based version of the game. The developer said that while some feats had to be modified to fit a real-time-with-pause style video game, feats and options were included to allow you to create your characters as you'd expect from Pathfinder. What I saw left me more excited for this long awaited way to enjoy Pathfinder.

With that, back to it... there's plenty more gaming to be had! Be sure to follow GeekDad for my post-con write-up.

Prevent The Fall - Available on Steam EA

by Myrthos, 14:35

Prevent the Fall, the Action RPG / Dungeon Crawler that is playable with and without VR, is now available on Steam in Early Access with a 15% discount.

Prevent the Fall is an action oriented computer role playing game which can be played with or without virtual reality headsets. Experience the game in either single player or in multiplayer co-op online or via LAN.

Advance through twenty character levels, as you explore semi-procedurally generated dungeons, earn Steam Achievements, and acquire a slew of items in this RPG experience. Co-op sessions can be mixed and matched with both VR and non-VR players adventuring together. The game can be controlled with mouse and keyboard, gamepad, or Steam VR motion controllers. Both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets are supported.

Dungeons are semi-procedurally generated for maximum performance. Utilizing randomly selected layouts players will be able to generate simple quests which will have them seeking to explore, slay, or collect items in dungeons featuring generated NPCs, loot, and traps. Players are able to increase or decrease the difficulty of these quests, and dungeon encounters will spawn an increased number of monsters based on the number of players in co-op sessions.

System Shock - Why Unreal Engine 4?

by Silver, 14:23

PCGamesN asks Nightdive why they switched from Unity to Unreal Engine 4 for the System Shock Remake.

TriOptimisation

There were two important considerations behind the engine swap. First, after conversations with both Epic and Unity, Nightdive decided Unreal Engine 4 would be the better choice for hitting their performance targets on consoles. And second, more pertinent for our purposes, was the team. Nightdive have hired a bunch of "very senior" developers, a number of whom worked alongside game director Jason Fader at Obsidian on Fallout: New Vegas.

"These guys had more Unreal experience than Unity experience," explains Fader. "And instead of having them get up to speed on Unity, it made more sense with what we had in the pipeline to go with an Unreal ecosystem."

Thankfully, Nightdive were able to pull over a "good chunk" of the work they'd already done in pre-alpha.

"The code doesn't really translate, but the core fundamentals of the system we were working on definitely do map over," says Fader.

The Long Journey Home - Review @PCGamesN

by Silver, 14:11

The Long Journey Home has been reviewed by PCGamesN.

I'm lost in space: totally stranded, low on resources, and on the lam from a gelatinous loan shark. Two of my four crew members are critically injured, meaning there are no spare hands to man my ship's weapons. Worse still, I've just used my last tank of Exotic Matter, the resource that powers the Daedalus-7's interstellar jumps, which means I have two options: scoop up enough EM for another jump by orbiting a star, or mine it from one of the many planets within range. The former will likely kill one of my weak crew members through radiation damage and all but obliterate my ship's hull.The latter will require me to meticulously probe each planet to find the one or two with the right resource and safe enough landing conditions.

I opt for the orbital scoop, but as I plunge into the star's gravitational pull I'm intercepted by a Raxact raider who offers me a different choice: blood or coin? I don't have the coin, and my ship is in a critical state of disrepair, so I flee in exchange for taking a few hits. I flee straight into the sun though, filling my view with injury updates and death notifications as the screen fades to black and sombre music swells.

The news comes via an interview between Famitsu and game creator Koji Igarashi at this year's BitSummit, who confirmed development on the game is roughly 20-30% complete. To compare, development on the game was roughly 10% done during last year's BitSummit.

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem - Traps

by Myrthos, 10:16

This latest update for Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is about the traps in the game.

My name is Lucas, I am a gameplay, network and UI programmer here at Wolcen Studio and you may know me as Caracole on the game’s Discord and Steam forums. I have been working on Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem for over a year now and have been responsible for the development of the housing system, cloud mode and all the new UI that we’ve been rolling out for a year now (the new main menu, new character sheet, item comparison system, and so on…).
Internally, I am also known as “the guy who like to clean up his room” because I regularly do some cleanup, formatting, refactoring and optimization of the code in order to keep everything clean and maintainable as the project has some code that is a few years old, not necessarily up to date or still used.  

On a daily basis, I am mainly working with Alexandre, our 2D artist, regarding UI integration and Hadrien when he requires UI for, for example, the passive skill tree, the active skill tree or his new quest manager.  

Recently, I have been working on the Dungeon Challenge, a game mode in which you will build your very own dungeon, using the same system as the Housing, to mine precious resources.
However, you will have to defend your dungeon and mines against other players trying to steal you and will have at your disposition creatures but also traps, which are today’s subject.

Never have I ever just strolled in a game for almost half an hour (that’s actually a really long time) just to bask in the game’s beautiful yet personified scenery.

Killers and Thieves - Update Soon

by Silver, 01:31

After receiving a mixed reception Killers and Thieves is taking stock of community concerns and pledging ongoing support and development.

Killers and Thieves update coming very soon
25 May - Khatie
Greetings to everyone in the Killers and Thieves community!

First, and most importantly, thank you to everyone who has bought our game. We know you have a lot of things you could be spending your money on, and we are honored that so many of you are supporting Killers and Thieves. However, we also recognize that it hasn't been a problem-free launch.

The whole team here at Stoic really appreciates all of your feedback about Killers and Thieves. Community feedback is vital for what we do, because it's the main way we learn about issues that need addressing. We are paying attention to everything being shared with us, and that in turn is helping us to prioritize the updates and fixes that are most urgently needed.

We look forward to sharing an improved Killers and Thieves experience very soon, which will address the most pressing concerns in the community. These will include:

Clarifying the early-game player experience:

- We're adding a clear, updated, in-game tutorial panel. This will help to explain high-level gameplay goals and improve the early player experience.
- We're working with an expert Killers and Thieves player to record videos demonstrating effective ways to play. These videos will be accessible from the title screen and will outline strategies to help players pick up the key mechanics more easily, and will be subtitled.

Adding extra functionality and fixes:

- Pressing the spacebar will pause the action during a heist, in addition to the P key.
- A fix will be added to improve accuracy of the "mission success chance".
- The scrolling speed of the loot menu will be fixed.
- Store information will be laid out correctly against the screen edge.
- Corrections will be made to in-game text.

We are working on these vital updates and fixes right now, and they will be implemented as soon as possible. More updates will follow based on deeper consultation with the community over the next few days and will continue in the coming weeks.

Thanks again for being part of the Killers and Thieves player community. Please keep that feedback coming in, and remember that we are reachable at kt@stoicstudio.com for any support queries.

Thank you,
The Stoic team
