Elden Ring Closed Network Test Preview

loading…
Elden Ring is a familiarly punishing, third-person action RPG woven into a smart and enthralling open world, and more than any previous FromSoftware game, it begs to be explored. It's Big Dark Souls. It's Dark Souls 4 in all but name; a gigantic RPG that I spent 14 hours exploring, like, three percent of without getting bored. Elden Ring is exactly what I was hoping for: the greatest hits concert that FromSoftware has been building towards for over a decade.
Medieval Dynasty Feature Video

loading…
Are you new around these parts and you're wondering what Medieval Dynasty has to offer? Curious to see what kind of activities are there for you? If you are, watch our Medieval Dynasty Features Round-up Video and find out what you will have to do to survive in medieval times.
Late Conquistador Review - Gamebanshee
Expeditions: Conquistador is a game that despite its budget-related limitations manages to fill you with the spirit of adventure. It is easily one of my favorite games of the whole Kickstarter gold rush era, and I can't recommend it enough to anyone looking for a unique experience. And if you so happen to find the conquistador aesthetic really cool, you'll enjoy it all the more.
Project Awakening Releasing on PC, New in-engine trailer - DSO
During its latest conference, Cygames revealed that its upcoming game, Project Awakening, will be coming to PC. In addition, the team revealed a new in-engine trailer that you can find below.
Nighthawks the Vampire RPG - 30 Days Of Nightbook
Like many people, the core of your Nighthawks vampire’s world is their smartphone, never mind the fact that in this setting, vampires can’t actually use them properly. (As a reminder, the lore extends the classic ‘no reflections’ rule to recording devices, which includes speaking down phones.) The real purpose is to act as an immediate, semi-diegetic place to store anything that you might need to look back on. Your Contact List, for instance, stores character profiles and notes added during specific storylines, while the Diary is your questlog, and Calendar is easy access to previous saves. All of this is wrapped in a Not-Facebook shell called 'Nightbook', because I was clearly feeling very inspired a couple of years ago. Unrelated, dear lord, has this thing been a design nightmare… ¯
Alder Forge - Alder Forge Devlog #3
Designing the weapons in the Alder Forge is not a one-stop process that comes after the character design but an ongoing active one, the reason for that is populating the weapons throughout the world and the Players' ability to acquire them, and each weapon should not only differ by stats and perhaps skills but also by the design itself, and without further ado let us begin with the first step of the weapons design process.
BioSynth Rising - Character Creation, Quests, and Quality of Life UI
Since our last post, we’ve been working on quite a few things… let us show you a few of those! Our next goal for BioSynth is to create and deliver a demo. We want you to have fun with it – which starts by being able to actually begin the game. So we worked on that.

Either I missed it or it's been skipped by the site, but Ruined King: a League of Legends Story was released a few hours ago. So far, it has generally good reviews.

Prometheus Wept Funded- We did it!
We did it! Thank you so, so much. It's been an exciting, often nerve-wracking 4 weeks. The campaign started out quite well, but after a couple of days, it had slowed down considerably and really wasn't looking good.

Action-RPG Thymesia Delayed Until 2022 - Steam

loading…
Together with our publisher Team17, we had made the difficult decision to delay the launch of Thymesia into 2022. As a community you have been so amazing in your support, and we know this will come as a disappointment to many, but our goal is to release Thymesia in the best possible state, and to do this, we need a little longer to work on the finishing touches.
New Gameplay Trailer for Bleak Faith: Forsaken

loading…
What can we say - this one is special to us. This was a feature we wanted to expand our team for during the Kickstarter days, so it was a stretch goal. Fast forward, and all the experience we've gained since then has gotten us to a point where without a budget boost, we managed to implement the brutality we'd always envisioned in the world of Bleak Faith. This one is for all you 100-man slayers out there - and especially for captain Miura. The soul of the berserker lives on through all of us.

Dying Light 2 New Gameplay on GameInformer

loading…
Few games have captured the imagination quite like Dying Light 2 Stay Human. Developer Techland's ambitious open-world title has the potential to wow players with meaningful choices, a beautiful space to cause chaos, and satisfying zombie slaying. While Dying Light 2 has stayed in the shadows for the majority of the last few years, today, we're giving you a new look into this undead nightmare.

Looks Like Dying Light 2 Will Be Worth The Wait!

loading…
Recently we got to go hands-on with #DyingLight2 gameplay for 3 whole hours and, while we weren't busy drop-kicking zombies into and off of things, we were making notes about how Dying Light 2 gameplay breathes new life into the series
Elden Ring's World Doesn't Have Much More To Offer Than Combat - TheGamer
Now I'm not saying this focus on combat is bad, it feels incredible to play and I'll absolutely lose hours to The Lands Between, but I hope newcomers don't come to Elden Ring expecting something akin to Breath of the Wild or Far Cry, since it's just as punishing as the masterpieces that came before it. You will die again and again and again as you learn the inner workings of its unforgivable world, eventually emerging victorious with a trail of blood defining your footsteps. I'm ready for Elden Ring, but I know what I'm getting, and that's okay.
Path of Exile - Creating Scourge Lore
In Path of Exile: Scourge, we introduced The Last to Die, a new NPC from an alternate Wraeclast swarmed by ravenous demons. For this news post, our Narrative Designer, Matt, has taken a moment to reflect on writing for Scourge League. Here are his thoughts.
Encased Review - Gamebansheee
Overall, Encased is a functional but less-than-exciting RPG. The premise is fine, the engine is fine, but there isn't enough content to support the campaign. Developer Dark Crystal Games has released a handful of patches since the game's release a couple of months ago, but so far they've only fixed some minor problems, and it's not clear if they plan to do anything major (or if they even agree with my assessment that there isn't enough content). Encased has a mid-range price point, so it won't cost you an arm and a leg to try it out, but if you're interested in turn-based post-apocalyptic RPGs, then there are numerous better ones out there, like Underrail and Wasteland.
GRAVEN - Roadmap Changes Announcement
As you might already know from our Roadmap, our next update for GRAVEN was delayed. Our team is hard at work on the game. After some challenging internal discussions, we've decided this is not the right time to release a new content update.
PlatinumGames' Hideki Kamiya apologizes to Microsoft for Scalebound's Cancellation
PlatinumGames developer Hideki Kamiya has spoken out about the Scalebound project - a planned Xbox One exclusive action RPG that was announced in 2014 and ultimately cancelled in 2017 after a difficult development beset with various struggles.
Two Story-driven SP Star Wars Games in Development - DSO
According to industry insider Tom Henderson, DICE pitched Battlefront 3 to EA for its next title. However, the publisher has shot it down due to licensing costs. As such, DICE is now – most likely – working on a new Battlefield game. Thankfully, though, there are currently two story-driven single-player Star Wars games in development at EA.

Gamebansheee's review is rather botched IMO, the guy is badly informed and the few random paragraphs I read had factual errors in them.

I loved this one: "My first time through, I didn't know what to do early in the game and was constantly frustrated." - says it all, where are my map pointers? I'm so lost without them. There are a few things that are true, like balancing and content-wise (though not as bad as he puts it).

Game-banshee always like to stir the pot with their reviews. Still better then the codex though. Anyway I just noticed you posted one of the videos already. Better fix that.

Did we post the same video? Didn't notice, but anyway I think neither of us should worry about a little redundancy. Your thread covers more games and news in any case, I'm probably too picky.

I'm not surprised by what you say on Banshee, I think it's not the first time they publish a review that looks off. I'm not saying the game is perfect, but it definitely deserves better than this (BTW, I have written a review for the Watch, it should be up soon).

When I read this: "Games has released a handful of patches since the game's release a couple of months ago, but so far they've only fixed some minor problems, and it's not clear if they plan to do anything major" I can't help thinking this guy hasn't done his homework; they were very clear on what they were about to do (and there were only minor problems to fix, regarding the patches).

I don't think I ever read any review on the codex (nor anything else), I'll have a look out of curiosity.

How Dungeons & Dragons Shaped PC Gaming - PC Gamer
It explains a lot about Warren Spector, the driving force behind Deus Ex, that his first dungeon master was the author Bruce Sterling. Not only was Sterling destined to become one of the fathers of cyberpunkĆ¢ā‚¬ā€¯the science fiction genre that spliced future tech with social commentary, just as Deus Ex wouldĆ¢ā‚¬ā€¯but he was a generous and accommodating DM.

"What was most powerful about that first night, and all the nights that followed for the next ten or so years, wasn't the story Bruce was telling to us," Spector says. "It was the story my friends and I were telling with him."
And that's all folks sorry about the lack of good news but news this week is crap.
