Developer Animation Arts announced today that Lost Horizon 2 will arrive on PC this fall.

The game takes place in the 1940s and onward, allowing players to explore several exotic locations from long ago.

The original Lost Horizon released in 2010, garnering praise for its Indiana Jones-style story, charming graphics, and attention to detail. The sequel expands upon this formula, offering more content as well as transitioning from 2D to 3D.

The video above demonstrates the versatility Bastion brings to the battlefield with his different configurations. Bastion is able to swap between a few different modes to best fit whichever situation it finds itself in. Its default, recon mode, allows him to walk through the level armed with a submachine gun. By using its reconfigure ability, Bastion can switch to its sentry mode. Though unable to move in this configuration, sentry allows Bastion to whip out a gatling gun and rain bullets down on the opposing team. Its ultimate ability can also be witnessed in the video and lets Bastion assume the form of a small tank equipped with a long range cannon for a limited time. 

Allow Your Student To Crossdress Or Turn Him Into A Pineapple

about X hours ago from

No Pineapple Left Behind, an education management sim, parodies former President George Bush's No Child Left Behind Act by allowing players to turn disobedient or underperforming students into pineapples. Unlike humans, pineapples cannot get A's. However, they are more respectful of authority, study harder, and in general make for better pupils.

With a name hailing from a political act, it should surprise few that No Pineapple Left Behind engages complex issues like conformity and bullying. In Subaltern Games' most recent developer diary, team lead Seth Alter discusses how to deal with a crossdressing student named David. Freedom of expression prevails if players purchase and use anti-teasing lasers, a process Alter describes as "complicated, expensive, and annoying." The other option? Turn him into a compliant pineapple.

For more details on this scenario, check out the video below. If you are interested in watching the game's original trailer, we first reported on No Child Left Behind in April.

A new trailer for upcoming PlayStation RPG Persona 5 has slipped out this morning. Unfortunately, unless you are fluent in Japanese, some of the impact is going to be lost.

The visuals are certainly stunning, showing the protagonists in their regular attire and mask-equipped combat wear. The in-game text is also in English, but it doesn’t convey nearly enough to know what’s going on.
