Dying Light's Hellraid DLC Impressions and Stream Recap

about X hours ago from

I'll be honest, when Hellraid was announced it was easily one of my most anticipated co-op games. Heretic and Hexen were some of my all time favorite shooters and this looked like a solid spiritual successor. Hellraid has taken a turn though, instead of a full fledged release (at least for now) - it's merely a concept in a piece of content for Dying Light. So does it scratch that itch?Access to Hellraid is achieved in Dying Light by going to the first level of the tower and entering in a room past the shop. There you'll find an arcade machine that transports you to the "game." Hellraid itself is a self contained mode that has its own small progression system and melee weapons to collect. There's also a few collectibles to be found but it's pretty light from the traditional RPG like features.Combat shares a lot of the mechanics with Dying Light, including stamina, traversal and grapple mechanics. The weapons though you'll find are mostly melee with swords, axes, and maces being your primary methods of skull pounding. There isn't much to the enemy variety - a few zombies, skeletons, and magic wielding beings. There's the occasional "big guy" you'll face too, but more or less it's straight forward.

Prepare Your Forceps, Surgeon Simulator 2 Is Out Soon

about X hours ago from

I have precisely zero surgical experience, but from what I've gathered through medical osmosis, it seems like an unbearably tense situation, and that's even for people with full control of their limbs.  Imagine, then, how much worse it must be when you have dubious sway over your own body and up to three friends laughing at how much you're screwing everything up.Luckily, the upcoming Surgeon Simulator 2 eschews tension and consequences in favor of goofs and hijinks, and it's all the better for it.  Come August 27th, you'll get to experience some of that goofiness for yourself when it releases on the Epic Games Store.  This ambitious followup to the original Surgeon Simulator adds a more expansive gameplay experience beyond the original's focus on a relatively simple (albeit hilarious) joke.  There's a storyline, character customization, and even user-generated levels to keep you and your fellow surgeons occupied for hours.

Catherine may be one of the most unsettling games of the last console generation, but thanks to the excellent puzzle-based gameplay and the heavy-handed look at relationships, the game is getting new life with the Catherine: Full Body edition on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The trailer below (gameplay taken from the Switch) shows off the atmospheric and creepy puzzles (styled as the main character's dreams) players will navigate through, in the hope of helping Vincent, and possibly his relationship, survive.If you haven’t had the chance to experience the heavy, narrative-driven, puzzle game that is Catherine, I would personally recommend it, as the game brings up hard-to-solve relationship questions and pairs them with difficult puzzle platforming. it delivers an extremely unforgettable experience.Have you already had the chance to experience Catherine since its original launch in 2011, or will the Full Body edition be your first trip into the troubled dreams of Vincent?
