about X hours ago from

The field is full of Warhammer games, but only one pits fantasy races against each other in a modified version of American football. In the latest trailer for Blood Bowl II, we see the speedy Skaven square off against the stout and hearty Dwarves.

The digital version of Blood Bowl is adapted from the Games Workshop tabletop game of the same name. In this sequel, developer Cyanide Studio has polished up the visuals and made it more accessible to those coming into Blood Bowl for the first time.

In the video below, you can get a sense for how turns work and get brief glimpses at player trading cards that carry important stats and crucial skills. Most importantly, you’ll get a look at the danger of the game. You can lose players to injury or death with a bad die roll.

It's Not As Easy As You Think

about X hours ago from

Nintendo fans would be forgiven for thinking Yoshi’s Woolly World is a game you can just stroll through. After all, it features cute aesthetics that recall the charming yet simple Kirby’s Epic Yarn. In addition, every level we’ve seen to this point has been mildly challenging at best. That all changed this weekend at PAX Prime, as Nintendo introduced me to some of the more challenging levels of Yoshi’s Woolly World.

The first level I played was called Woollet Bill’s Last Ride. On this stage, Yoshi must ride on a trail that a Woolly Bullet Bill leaves behind as he travels through the fast-scrolling level. Over the course of the stage, enemies bubble onto the screen and drop onto the disappearing trail in the most inconvenient places. Plus, on many occasions, you must quickly jump up to platforms above in order to get over obstacles blocking your path, then get back down to Woollet Bill’s trail before he flies past you.

Bundling Up And Exploring An Icy Area

about X hours ago from

Clever dungeon and puzzle designs are nothing new for the Legend of Zelda franchise, but with Tri-Force Heroes, Nintendo is hoping to try out a few new ideas. Resurfacing fond memories of the Four Swords games on Game Boy Advance and GameCube, Tri-Force Heroes removes one from that equation, placing three heroes in a world that shares an art style with A Link Between Worlds.

With three characters traveling through the levels together, the designers have had a field day putting in puzzles that make you think about the levels using your numbers to your advantage. Players must stack, or totem, their characters on top of each other in order to reach high objects, or they must throw each other over obstacles in a particular order to solve a puzzle and make it passable for all. It’s a fun concept with quirky and humorous emotes that help players communicate if they aren’t sitting in the same room since there isn’t any voice chat.
