Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity Is Headed Our Way This Fall

about X hours ago from

It's been a surprisingly long time since the original Hyrule Warriors first came out on the Wii U.  The Dynasty Warriors-style hack and slasher may not have been groundbreaking, but the amount of fan service found within was more than enough to sustain its fans.  For those of you missing the opportunity it presented to kick absolute jaw-dropping amounts of Moblin butt, fret not, for a new savior has arrived.Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is headed our way on November 20th, and with it comes an all new way to have Link and Co. bash their way through hordes of enemies.  The game is set one hundred years prior to the events of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so players will have a chance to experience that Great Calamity everyone's always talking about.  Plus, Age of Calamity's numerous cutscenese will give us a more personal understanding of the four champions and the King of Hyrule.  The announcement trailer can be found below:

Marvel's Avengers Stream Recap and Impressions

about X hours ago from

Marvel's Avengers has finally arrived and it is equal parts fun/engaging and a buggy mess prone to crashing. We attempted to play through some of the co-op last night and, after nearly an hour, we finally managed to get all the way through a mission without the game crashing or some other bug cropping up. So... success?Mike kicks things the stream off with a brutal, but fair, criticism of the state of the game right now. The single-player campaign is good and (mostly) works as intended, but the co-op mode (Avengers Initiative) is broken to the point of being nearly unplayable. That's not a criticism of the gameplay or mechanics, it is an accurate description of the game's performance on the PC (we're unable to comment on PS4 or Xbox performance, though there are problems on those platforms, too). Here is a short list of the issues we've experienced in our playtime thus far:

Sling Low-Rez Spells In GRAVEN Next Year

about X hours ago from

Here's a hypothetical situation: you're a disgraced priest living in a psuedo-medieval world where horrid creatures are free to wander around and terrorize innocents.  What would you do?  Would you mope around, maybe write some strongly worded missives, or would you pick up your dang staff and set out to right those obvious wrongs?GRAVEN, an upcoming first person shooter/puzzler from Slipgate Studios, takes the latter approach.  In this spiritual successor to Hexen 2, you'll be exploring three separate regions for villagers to help, secrets to find, and monsters to slay.  To accomplish these tasks, you're armed with numerous weapons and spells, which can be upgraded as you see fit.  The game sports a late-90s retro aesthetic that's been all the rage recently, which you can see for yourself in the reveal trailer below:If you're curious to see more, publisher 3D Realms has also released a 10-minute gameplay trailer to show off some of GRAVEN's early action.
