Elder Scrolls Online is looking really pretty, and I've got to say I'm getting more than a little excited about it. Considering the success of previous Elder Scrolls games, I can only imagine how well an MMO version will go down. Now, as Bethesda reveal the character progression system, things are coming together.
Child of Light is a JRPG, fairytale poem of a game that I cannot wait to get my hands on. From the first trailer, I was sold on this game, but now a walkthrough is making me really excited.
Yes, I'm a JRPG fangirl. I'm also a Kickstarter virgin, but I think I've found the project that will pop my cherry! East and West are coming together to create Project Pheonix, a JRPG with a squad-based RTS game design.
It’s time to feel a little old; not only is it the 30th anniversary of the Famicom, but it’s also the 10 year anniversary of what I think is the very finest Star Wars game ever made: Knights of the Old Republic. That’s right, it’s been 10 years since you played that game a long time ago, in a galaxy far away.
The Mario and Luigi RPG series was borne from the ideal to bring Paper Mario, itself a throwover from the ideals of Super NES’s Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, to Nintendo’s handhelds. Progressive and delightfully daring, the series makes its debut on the 3DS with Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. After the frankly fantastic Bower’s Inside Story on the DS, developer AlphaDream has a lot to live up to with this sequel.
Twas the season to equip boots of +5 award-winning! 2012 was a big year for RPGs, as we saw the Diablo 3 finally released, alongside the likes of Guild Wars 2 and Kingdoms of Amalur. Some scored big, some failed hard and some were practically meh. But only one of those genre games could stand head and shoulders above the rest. And that winner is…
It's one thing to look into a game as an individual product, but human nature tends to have people throwing down comparisons left, right and centre. When there is no official yardstick to measure something, the next best thing is to look at is something similar. Gamers compare all sorts of things all the time. Boxers have their own unique attributes on paper, but it is their ability in the ring that determines who reigns supreme. It is with this thinking that I present to you today's two contestants in a gaming head to head battle.
Kingdom Hearts has been around for 10 years now. Wow, writing that makes me feel old. What once appeared to be an excuse for two large studios to collaborate and cameo their iconic characters, is now a fully-fledged product, with its own characters and memorable story.
Man, I can’t wait for th3 sequel to Borderlands, one of the most fun co-operative experiences this generation. . The Lazygamer staff has already put time aside to play with each other…once we finish Borderlands 2. That could take a while; Gearbox has said that the game could take up to 60 hours to complete. Once. With one character.
Polymorphous Perversity isn’t your usual RPG title, no it’s an indie title which is being billed as a sex game that crosses boundaries and disturbs the mind. It’s based on a theory by Sigmund Freud that believes people can find erotic pleasure out of any part of the body.
Blizzard recently locked new online purchases of its global sales smashing Diablo III, meaning those who bought it digitally would be stuck with the “Starter Edition” for up to three days. They’ve now loosened that restriction somewhat, allowing players to progress past Act I.
CD Projekt’s Witcher 2 is one of my favourite modern RPG’s; treating me as an adult with a complex, branching story. Is it, perhaps, too complex? The developer says it’s realised it needs to make the storytelling more inviting for its next game, a Cyberpunk RPG currently titled..well, Cyberpunk. Does that mean that CD Projekt will be dumbing the game down for broader appeal?
South Park is an edgy, gory and intelligent show, using 2D animation to bring forth relevant points into the public spotlight, while mercilessly lampooning anyone that deserves it. So of course, a new South Park game is a must, in our sceptical society today.
So what happens when you combine South Park, comedy and fantasy with an Obsidian developed game? The highlight of the Microsoft press conference, of course.
I’ve said a lot about Dragon’s Dogma over the last few weeks. I’ve played a good portion of it, and I’m excited for its release. It’s Capcom’s first foray in to open-world high fantasy, and it’s filled, as you’d expect with all manner of beats - like Dragons (obviously), giant cockatrices, ouroboroses, Cyclopses and countless more. Because of its open-world nature its drawing a fair number of comparisons to Bethesda’s Skyrim - but I’d have to say that it feels more like one of the Souls games - just without that crushing, brutal difficulty - mixed with a dash of Monster Hunter.
Here’s the game’s launch trailer - which tells you a lot about nothing, but it does look very nice. Remember, buying the game will not only guarantee you lines of cheesy dialogue in addition to a pretty excellent game, it’ll also net you access to the Resident Evil 6 demo.
Yesterday, Capcom opened the lid on Dragon’s Dogma’s Event Mode - which will allow players and their AI pawns all over the world to tackle a single, great beast in an odd sort of collective, asynchronous multiplayer. The first of which, available on the day of the game’s impending launch will see players all over the world come together to chip away at the monumental health bar of the great, big, bastardly Ur-Dragon.
