Eldar Fleet Gets Added To Beta Next Week

about X hours ago from

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the upcoming space RTS set in the Warhammer 40K universe, releases later this month. The beta for the game is currently ongoing, and will introduce a new playable fleet next week: the Eldar.

The Eldar are fast and deadly, with highly maneuverable ships that deal serious damage. Their lack of armor also makes them very fragile, which contributes to their hit-and-run, skill-intensive playstyle. Watch the trailer featuring the new fleet below.

Based on the anime and manga of the same name, Attack on Titan pits humans living in walled settlements against carnivorous naked giants. The game, developed by Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force, doesn’t look anything like the long-running Musou series.

Get A Look At The Character Classes In The Upcoming Tactical RPG

about X hours ago from

NIS America released details on the character classes for the strategy RPG Grand Kingdom today. The game’s 13 classes are divided into four main unit types, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Melee units are, as you might expect, built for close-quarters combat, while ranged units do better by hanging back and attacking from a distance. Magic users have a medium attack range but have to charge up their more powerful moves before they can be executed, leaving them vulnerable to ranged attacks. 

In addition to these three core character types, players will also control Specialists, units who have unique individualized abilities and lack a specific role in battle. 

Destruction With Design

about X hours ago from

Dangerous Golf's premise is simple, but it's not brainless. I've played through the game's first 10 boards, and they're already filled with the kinds of moments you'd expect from the creators of Burnout: cathartic destruction, unpredictability, and addictive gameplay.

Any barbarian can smash stuff, but the smart person does so with strategy. Your tee shot must take into account the layout of the room, be cognizant of any bonus score objectives (like hitting certain objects), and tally enough damage to earn a Smashbreaker – the timed shot where you really rack up the points.

During the Smashbreaker you steer the ball (including slight gas/brake) in slow-mo by moving the camera with the left analog to point the ball where you want it to go. The joy and frustration is that it's going to follow its own physics, careening off into new areas and creating near-misses. Sometimes you want to guide the ball places, other times it's best to let it bounce on its own. Still, you have to be mindful where you go with the Smashbreaker since your final shot is a putt that scores more the longer it travels and breaks stuff on the way.

Hearthstone's Biggest Minion Arrives April 26

about X hours ago from

Hearthstone's upcoming Whispers of the Old Gods expansion promises to shake things up when it drops on April 26, and today we have a few amazing cards to share with you, one of which is the biggest minion in Hearthstone history - a massive 30/30 monster that can kill an unarmored full-health hero in a single blow. Of course, getting this titan on the tavern table will be no easy task, but you never know what can happen as players find new ways to clone and tinker with the dangerous Blood of the Ancient One.

Hearthstone lead designer Ben Brode offered us some insight on Blood of the Ancient One and The Ancient One, but first let's take a look at the cards themselves.

While the conditions to get The Ancient One on board may be daunting, that is an unbelievable amount of power - almost a caricature of Hearthstone brute strength, and a dangerous win condition. Ben Brode answered a few questions for us about these upcoming cards.
