When Noctis and crew aren't cruising around in the Regalia, there's plenty of action to be had. The new Final Fantasy XV trailer shows off stretches of combat, with Noctis using the powerful Death Spell courtesy of the Ring of Lucii.

The trailer debuted at TwitchCon 2016, and the death magic featured drains the HP from enemies at a progressive rate.

You Can Create Your New Skylander With App, Get It Printed In 3D

You Can Create Your New Skylander With App, Get It Printed In 3D

Activision has been doing its best to keep its Skylanders series fresh from year to year, adding a gameplay twist with every annual release. So far, we’ve seen tweaks as mundane as larger figures, bizarre mix-and-match monstrosities, trappable baddies, and vehicles. This year’s installment, Skylanders Imaginators, lets players build their own hero from a huge array of different pieces. Today, the publisher has revealed that players will be able to work on their creations away from the game itself by using an app. That’s only part of the story, though. Once you’re finished, you can bring your new Skylander to life on a shirt, NFC card, or – for the die-hard fans out there – via limited-edition 3D printout.

Skylanders Creator is the app, and it’s coming to iOS and Android devices. After downloading it for free, you can get to work on your own creations, either by importing and tweaking the Skylanders you’ve already made in the console game, or completely from scratch. Once you’re done, you can transfer your finished Skylander over to the game. The transfer is made via a series of audio beeps and clicks, and we’re told it sounds a bit like a droid from Star Wars.

Sunless Sea Lead Writer Announces New Digital Board Game

about X hours ago from

Alexis Kennedy, the lead writer and creative director of Sunless Sea, announced on his blog today that he's working on new game called Cultist Simulator.

Kennedy, who has also worked as a writer, coder, and creative director on games including Fallen London, Dragon Age: The Last Court, and Stellaris, said Cultist Simulator will be a "digital board game of mystery, experimentation, and self-destruction."

The single-player game is set to feature what Kennedy calls "parallel victory conditions" for "sane" and "insane" paths, crafting mechanics, and the ability to "indoctrinate innocents." However, there will also be the option to try to resist the cultish path and succeed in romance or a career. "But why would you do that?" Kennedy writes.

Emily Keeps A Low Profile In Sneaky Clockwork Mansion Playthrough

Emily Keeps A Low Profile In Sneaky Clockwork Mansion Playthrough

Yesterday, we got to see what a mission in Dishonored 2 would look like if Emily Kaldwin threw caution to the wind and obliterated everything in her path. Today, we get to see a mission set in the same Clockwork Mansion, where she plays it cautious and avoids direct confrontation.

In this mission, Emily infiltrates the Clockwork Mansion to rescue an old friend, Anton Sokolov. She makes short work of the security, using methods including blink teleportation, sleep darts, and summoning a mysterious force that mesmerizes all who gaze upon it. It's another fun showcase for how players can approach combat – by being sneaky and taking out enemies before they even know they're being watched.

Lincoln Clay Can Kill In Many Different Ways

about X hours ago from

A number of sandbox games don't actually embrace openness in their mission design. Mafia III, if this trailer is any indication, shows otherwise.

Vietnam war veteran and protagonist Lincoln Clay can face missions in a handful of different ways. Stealth, melee takedowns, explosions, sniping, or just regular ol' gunplay seem to cover the options Mafia III makes the available to the player. Given how most games funnel you down one specific path for each mission, this choice is quite refreshing.

Two Titans Almost Punch Each Other In This Cinematic Trailer

Two Titans Almost Punch Each Other In This Cinematic Trailer

We've seen Titanfall 2's story from the viewpoint of a Pilot, but not from an outsider. The newest cinematic trailer for Titanfall 2 shows the relationship between Pilot and Titan from an envious grunt.

The trailer gives us the perspective of an unnamed militia rifleman as he tries to push back the IMC, the antagonistic force responsible for destroying the Frontier, the narrator's home. Given how the Titans are a powerful force, it makes sense how idolized these mechanical beings and their human counterparts are.
