Warhammer 40,000: Regicide Devs Explain How Stats Work In The Murderchess Game

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide continues to look like a power-armored version of chess, with an extra helping of murder. In the latest video, developer Hammerfall Publishing explains how the five different unit stats impact the game.

Regicide, which is now in Early Access, pits Space Marines versus Orks in turn-based combat. There are a number of different abilities and skills, as well as racial bonuses that impact how you’ll want to outfit and array your troops on the battlefield.

Meet Three More Potentially Traitorous Lost Dimension Characters

Atlus’ upcoming strategy RPG Lost Dimension features a cast of 13 different characters. It’s a good thing that there are so many, because five of them are going to try and stab you in the back during your quest.

Earlier in the week, we shared a video of the first three members of the S.E.A.L.E.D. team. Each has his or her own power that you’ll need to use to clime the Pillar. Today’s video shows off three more, including a pyrokinetic and healer.

Rocksteady Shows Off Batman: Arkham Knight Dual Play In Action

Last Friday, Rocksteady explained how Batman: Arkham Knight’s dual play feature works conceptually. You’ll be able to switch between two heroes mid-combat, continue your combos, and execute team takedowns.

This week on the second episode of Rocksteady’s Arkham Insider, we get to see it in action. The video below depicts Batman and Nightwing on the hunt for one of Penguin’s weapon caches.

New Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess Trailer Cuts Right To The Stupid

New Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess Trailer Cuts Right To The Stupid

Koei Tecmo is bringing an arsenal of traps to players this July via Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess. A new trailer shows some of these pitfalls, and they include surprises that are a bit more involved than spiky floors.

As we explained in our earlier preview, the game is a revamped version of Deception IV: Blood Ties, which was released on PlayStation 3 and Vita last year. Players can select between two demonic forces, Laegrinna and Velgruirie, who are so-called daughters of the devil. Their job is to lure unsuspecting victims into their lairs and (with help from the player and some crafty trap placement), defeat the intruders. Velgruirie is a new addition to the series. 

Don't let the storyline fool you. As you can see in the trailer below, traps range from conventional things like iron maidens to more outlandish objects like exploding toilets, pandas, and the humiliation of being forced to wear an animal mask.

Stretchmo Expands His Way To 3DS

Stretchmo Expands His Way To 3DS

The latest game in the Pushmo series just got a stealth launch courtesy of Nintendo.

Pushmo is a portable puzzle game from Intelligent Systems that launched in 2011 to positive reviews, and was followed up by the similarly praised Crashmo in 2012. The series took a step backwards with the Wii-U's Pushmo World in 2014, which ignored Crashmo's advancements, defaulting to the original game's simple mechanics. Intelligent Systems is hoping the series is back on track with today's surprise launch of Stretchmo. As you might guess, the new installment adds a stretching mechanic to Mallo's repertoire.

Stretchmo is available now on the 3DS eShop, with the first 7 puzzles being offered as a free download. After that players can buy several packs, which are detailed below courtesy of Nintendo:

Put Your Crew Together And Relive 1970s Heist Movies With The Masterplan

Put Your Crew Together And Relive 1970s Heist Movies With The Masterplan

It’s hard not to love heist movies. That genre is one of the few in which its easy to cheer for the bad guy as they abscond with some chump’s hard-earned (or ill-gotten) gains. The Masterplan from Shark Punch tries to capture the feel of movies like The Squeeze from the 1970s.

As you’ll see in the video below, you command a gang of criminals with diverse skills. You’ll need a wheelman, a safecracker, someone on the inside, and (if things go south) someone who is handy with firearms.

Overwatch’s Mercy Brings Healing On The Wings Of Angels

about X hours ago from

Yesterday, we shared a video of Overwatch’s “omnic monk” Zenyatta finding inner peace through outright destruction of his opponents. Today, we showcase a character that plays quite differently.

Mercy is a winged healer who is better played away from the front line. You don’t want her too far out of reach though, because her healing beam can keep the damage-dealing members of the team alive and killing. She can also amplify ally damage with the alternate version of the beam.
