Infinite Air Is A New Approach To Snowboarding

about X hours ago from

Snowboarding in a video game is about more than planting a rider in front of the screen and pushing him/her down a snowy mountain. Getting the feel right, from what it's like to carve through the snow to pulling off tricks, must be the foundation of a good experience. HB Studios – creators of The Golf Club – have announced Infinite Air featuring Mark McMorris, a PS4/Xbox One/PC snowboarding title that not only aims to give gamers unparalleled feel when out on the mountain, but also layer on the course-creation tools the developer has become known for.

Infinite Air doesn't automatically propel you down the mountain like some arcadey snow-sports games. Instead, the game focuses on an overall physics model for player movement in the board's edges, carving, and pulling off tricks. How you compress your weight, torque your trunk for spin, move through the air, and grab are all part of the game's movement system, whether you're doing a trick or not. Thus, HB Studios is striving for consistency throughout the game no matter what you're doing. "Unlike a lot of previous games that rely on tricks and are sort of combo driven," says Peter Garcin, executive producer, "this game is not combo driven at all. It is physics driven, and so it's about manipulating your body in space to perform the tricks."

Labyrinth Is Magic: The Gathering Meets Final Fantasy Tactics And It’s Playable Now

There is an extremely satisfying loop to building a deck, testing it out against friends, finding out what works, and tweaking what doesn’t. That process has made Magic: The Gathering the indomitable force it has been for decades and propelled Blizzard’s Hearthstone to rake in enormous revenue.

Labyrinth takes a different approach, blending the deck-building with gameplay similar to Final Fantasy Tactics. You’ll create decks for three different characters and, in early access, take that team against a human opponent.

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.
