Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Spoiler Free Tips

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a tough game. Here are some shinobi tactics to get you going without spoiling anything for your trek through Sengoku period Japan.

If you've played the Souls games and Bloodborne, your first barrier is going to be combat. Sekiro's combat hinges on a completely different play style and mechanics. Learning how to break an enemy's posture down through continued harassment, staying in the thick of combat while maintaining both offense and defense, is eventually critical to success. Practice deflection and counterplay as soon as you can, it will pay off later.

Use consumables, a lot. If you're like me, your first instinct is to save all those tasty sugars and other buff items for when you need them. The time you need them is on any boss encounter that's giving you trouble. You can always farm up or purchase more later in the game.

Everything You Need To Know About System Shock

Everything You Need To Know About System Shock

This feature was originally published online in December 2015.

Otherside Entertainment, currently developing the Kickstarted Underworld Ascendant, has revealed that they're developing a new entry in the System Shock series, the last of which was released in the tail end of 1999. Here's why that's a big deal.

Back in 1994 gaming was in a very different place. Game demos were passed around on floppy disks. Doom and Civilization ruled the world. Windows 95 wasn't even a thing yet. Looking Glass Technologies, which housed innovators like Warren Spector (Deux Ex), Doug Church (Thief) and Harvey Smith (Dishonored), was known for the revolutionary role-playing series Ultima and wanted to create an immersive simulation that wasn't fantasy-based. They opted for science fiction, and System Shock, a first-person adventure game that cast players as a hacker going up against an artificial intelligence known as SHODAN hell-bent on destroying Earth, was born.

This is How System Shock Came Back From The Dead

This is How System Shock Came Back From The Dead

Otherside Entertainment just revealed a new look at System Shock 3 at this year's GDC. However, it's actually another company called Nightdive that's responsible for bringing the franchise back from the grave. Here's how they did it.  This feature originally appeared in issue 281 of Game Informer.

In 1994, a Cambridge-based developer named Looking Glass Technologies released System Shock, perhaps one of the most influential games of its time. The game combined first-person shooter with role-playing systems, encouraging the player to proceed with caution through a space station’s dangerous corridors and think carefully about their every move. In 1999, Looking Glass released a sequel shortly before closing its doors; Irrational Games, which worked on System Shock 2, carried on the design of the series with the critically acclaimed BioShock. Now nearly 13 years later, a Kickstarter for a remake of the original System Shock has raked in over a million dollars, and a third game in the series is being developed by a team made up largely of developers who worked on the original.

The roads behind the series’ sudden resurgence lead back to Nightdive Studios, a small and dedicated team that has, up until this point, dealt solely with acquiring older games, like Turok and The 7th Guest, and making them playable on modern PCs.

Skater XL Riding The Sometimes Rough Pre-Release Hype

Skater XL Riding The Sometimes Rough Pre-Release Hype

I wasn’t sure what to expect when Skater XL hit Steam Early Access on PC late last year, but I was impressed with the small gameplay slice I played at the time. Fast forward three months later and the game is in the same place it was back then. Well, it is and it isn't.

While the title hasn’t received a significant update yet, it has blossomed nevertheless thanks to the dedication of modders who’ve added transition ramps, new levels, and more (check out the game's sub-reddit). This has put Skater XL in an uneasy position: Expectations are high because fans see the potential, but their craving for more content is making them restless.

Skater XL isn’t exactly the same as it was when I last played it last year (below is the New Gameplay Today episode we recorded at the time). Small updates have produced notable improvements in areas such as fixing some janky animations, making the board’s wheels move, smoothing transition landings, adding graphical touches, and more.
