Two New Ways To Get Great Diamond Dynasty Cards In MLB The Show 16

MLB The Show 16 expands the game's Diamond Dynasty mode with added challenges and a range of rewards, but developer San Diego Studio is also including two new ways to collect cards. These are designed not only to give some of the best ones in the game, but also let you have lots of fun doing so.

Conquest Mode

Conquest is a single-player mode (although like Diamond Dynasty itself it requires an online connection) presenting players with a grid of the country featuring strongholds representing the territories of all 30 teams in the league. Your job is to expand your fanbase by capturing grid spaces on the board, and in the process, weaken other teams and complete objectives that grant you Diamond Dynasty rewards.

Exclusive Trailer Reveals Nordic Games As Publisher

about X hours ago from

If you’re a fan of Joe Madureira’s distinct visual art style, it’s likely you’re already familiar with Battle Chasers: Nightwar. The upcoming RPG from Airship Syndicate had a very successful Kickstarter last year, which has enabled the developer to pursue a new game set in the comic book universe first revealed by Madureira back in the late 1990s. Today brings news that Airship Syndicate has obtained additional funding and publishing support from Nordic Games, a relationship that we’re told should allow for additional stretch goals and feature sets that might otherwise have been left on the cutting room floor. Along with the new announcement, we’re also being treated to a brand new trailer.

“The community got us off to a great start with Kickstarter, but we came just shy of a few really cool stretch goals our backers were excited about,” lead designer Ryan Stefanelli told Game Informer. “Partnering with Nordic is going to let us reach those (voice acting!) and possibly go further. It’ll also ensure Nightwar hits the quality bar we’re reaching for at Airship. But perhaps most importantly, having a publishing partner means we can focus on the most important part of game development: the actual game development.”

Exploring The Mysteries Of The Deep

about X hours ago from

When I first played Abzû almost a year ago, I was introduced to its concept and acclimated to moving underwater in the general ecosystem that developer Giant Squid had created. Our recent hands-on with the latest build of the game, however, is just as intriguing of an introduction to its aquatic world. The studio has subtly refined parts of the experience to make it more inviting while also deepening the mysteries at its heart.

The first thing that strikes me is how natural it feels to move through the water and among the sea life. I hadn't played the game since E3, but it's easy to simply pick up the controller and swim around. I can now send out a sonar chirp when near fish to attract them and charge up my ability to boost forward while swimming, the capacity for which increases as the game progresses. "We added those mechanics to make players more excited to explore, because that's really the goal," says creator Matt Nava.

Thimbleweed Park Trailer Introduces Special Agent Ray

about X hours ago from

Thimbleweed Park, the "new classic" point-and-click adventure game from the creators of Maniac Mansion, released its second trailer today. It focuses on the character of Special Agent Ray and gives a few teases about the game's mysterious plot.

There's a lot of exposition from Ray in the trailer, setting the stage for the investigation of a murder in a small town. Apparently, that also involves clowns, ghosts and glowing toilets in the dark but goofy world of Thimbleweed Park. See for yourself in the embedded video.

Star Fox Zero Has Been Drastically Overhauled Following Fan Criticism

about X hours ago from

I’ve had a soft spot for the Star Fox franchise since 1993, when I went to K-Mart and purchased the first game in the series. I remember playing on a tiny 11-inch color television, leaning into the screen, and nearly falling off the chair as I dodged asteroids with my whole body.

I don’t know how many times I defeated Andross’ debris-spitting, glowing, polygonal face. But I can tell you that I did it on every difficulty level multiple times. Sometimes I took shortcuts. Sometimes I played through every stage.

So when I tell you that the Star Fox Zero E3 demo left me feeling a bit flat and the subsequent interview with Platinum and Shigeru Miyamoto had me concerned about the game’s depth, know that it comes from love. Know also that after playing it a couple of weeks ago, I’m feeling worlds better about Star Fox Zero.
