If a game gets box art, it means it's almost ready to release... right? We have been getting the odd screenshot for Dragon Age Inquisition, but now it's time for box art. Let's hope the next bit of news about the game out of Bioware is a release date.
It feels like World of Darkness, the MMO based on the white wolf’s fictional, gothic universes has been in development for just about ever. Announced in 2006 as part of CCP and White wolf’s merger, it was meant to tie together those universes in one large multiplayer setting, though it seemed to be focused mostly on Vampire: The Requiem with the aim of being “a contemporary vampire simulator.” Doesn’t matter though. 8 years later, and it’s been unceremoniously binned.
We are now two weeks away from release. That's right, Child of Light is coming to all consoles and PC at the end of this month, and they are building up that hype to get us excited. This latest trailer shows off the different environments.
Over the last couple of years there’s been an idea in the gaming development industry, amongst the bigger players, that a game needs to hit as many checkpoints as possible in order to appeal to the widest audience. Sometimes that works. Most times, it fails. And that’s something that Square Enix has realised, as they shift focus in their gaming department.
Thanks to our friends at Ubisoft, we’re giving away a super rad collection of South Park goodies along with the excellent South Park: Stick of Truth.
Child of Light drops at the end of next month. It is one of the titles I'm most excited about this year - not only is it beautiful, it's also unique and original. Now we can see a little bit of how it was possible to make the game, and why it's just so pretty.
One of the games I’ve been most excited for this year, The Witcher 3, has been delayed to 2015. In an open letter to fans, developer CD Projekt RED said that they’re delaying the game to add an extra layer of polish.
Of all the titles launching in the first half of this year, I have to say that my heart is aching the most for Child of Light. It simply looks beautiful, and impressive, and it's an RPG that my soul has been crying for. Now, we get a new trailer and details on the Deluxe Edition.
Wow, I have a dirty mind. Once I read the "bound" part of the title, everything else they said about the game with its "deep customization" and "massive monsters" just got all jumbled up in my brain. Hmm, I wonder if that's actually making it more appealing.
There are a great many people rather excited for the next episode in the drawn out Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy subseries. I am, as I’ve pointed out numerous times in the past not one of them. If you’re one of the many straddling the fence about it, here’s a collection of the critical consensus for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII that could just sway your opinion.
One of my most anticipated games for the year has to be Child of Light. A fairytale-inspired RPG with watercolor design? Please just take all my money! Now, I know when I can throw money at it - and it's not much longer to wait.
There are a bunch of fantastic RPGs coming this year. We've got Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Witcher 3, the Elder Scrolls Online. I'm not going to include Final Fantasy XIII: Lighting Returns on that list, but it might even be a pretty good one, or at least half-way decent. But RPGs have changed so much over the years - have we become spoiled by the modern ones?
For those who don’t know, Starbound is an indie space exploration RPG with similar gameplay to Terraria and in many ways, Minecraft. You travel to different worlds in search of materials and supplies and each planet is procedurally generated. Since the terrain is movable and customisable, you can terraform a planet to live on it. It was released on Steam on December 5th and since then has sold one million copies!
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.
