Neverending Nightmares Successor Explores Pregnancy And Filipino Folklore

Infinitap Games has announced a successor to its 2014 horror title Neverending Nightmares – Devastated Dreams.

Neverending Nightmares tackled issues of depression and mental illness that its creator Matt Gilgenbach experiences in his personal life. For Devastated Dreams, Gilgenbach is tackling new personal fears with a similarly abstract video game – "Being an expectant parent and feeling totally vulnerable in a rural area of the Philippines without any electricity or running water," Gilgenbach writes on his blog.

In the game, players play as Angel, a woman who may or may not be pregnant, as she explores her nightmares and encounters monsters inspired by Filipino folklore. You can read more about the game and Gilgenbach's personal experiences that are inspiring it by heading here.

Six Things We Learned Playing The Dirty Bomb Open Beta

Five years have passed since Splash Damage released its last game, Brink. The multiplayer shooter introduced a novel movement system but the experience was ultimately undermined by its meager offerings, overemphasis on bot play, and milquetoast gunplay. Now the development team best known for Enemy Territory is returning to its PC roots with Dirty Bomb, a new free-to-play, objective-based shooter that launches in open beta today.

Originally announced in 2012, Dirty Bomb was briefly rebranded as Extraction before returning to its original name. In the week leading up to the open beta we got our hands on the game to see how different it is from Splash Damage's previous offerings. Here are a handful of things that stuck out to us.

Slicing And Dicing Slimes And A Cyclops Is Delightfully Fun

Move over, Hyrule Warriors. Dragon Quest is the next series getting the Dynasty Warriors treatment. Square Enix recently announced plans to bring a new hybrid, Dragon Quest Heroes, to North America as a PS4 exclusive. This is a pleasant surprise considering the publisher passed on bringing Dragon Quest X and the Dragon Quest VII remake stateside.

Dragon Quest is known for its traditional turn-based battle system, but this isn’t the first time the franchise has tried a flashier, more action-oriented approach. In 2008, Dragon Quest Swords launched on the Wii, taking advantage of the motion controls, but ended up a disappointment. Heroes has much more potential, since Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force has a better track record at creating thrilling action.

In Dragon Quest Heroes, monsters suddenly start attacking the peaceful city of Arba. This leads to you teaming up with memorable characters from Dragon Quest IV through VIII, like Yangus and Jessica from VIII and Bianca and Nera from V, to put an end to the chaos. You play a hero, Luceus, or heroine, Aurora. 

Four Reasons To Get Excited For Lego Dimensions

Four Reasons To Get Excited For Lego Dimensions

One of the best parts of playing with Lego is the lack of boundaries. You can spend your time trying to recreate the set on the box or use your imagination and build something completely different. Sometimes it's a mix of the two and you add your own mark to it. Either way, Lego has always encouraged creativity, never establishing a right or wrong way to play with them. That's why we often see children mix and match their playsets, combining the likes of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings Lego to create a new and exciting world.

This idea is the driving force behind Lego Dimensions. What if you didn't have boundaries between any franchise and its world, allowing even the most unlikely licenses to collide? How would it be to see Batman following the yellow brick road? Traveller's Tales (TT Games) takes on this interesting possibility in one of its most ambitious projects to date: Lego Dimensions, which features 14 different licenses.

We got hands-on time with the game at a recent Warner Bros. press event in Santa Monica. From the great humor to the nostalgic franchises to its tried-and-true gameplay, Lego Dimensions feels like a combination of everything Lego has done well in recent years. Here are some reasons why we're excited for it.

This wouldn't be a Lego game without some serious building. That also pertains to your vehicles in Lego Dimensions. Every model can be built into three different versions.

As noted in our recent hands-on preview, from the DeLorean to the Batmobile, you can transform all the iconic vehicles into different forms by rebuilding them.

The picture below gives you a glimpse into this; the Cyber-Guard can turn from a towering man of machinery to a destructor on all fours to a blinding laser walker .

Learn More About The Story Of Yuji Naka And Zin Hasegawa's Upcoming Title

NIS America has revealed new information surrounding Rodea the Sky Soldier, the upcoming title from Yuji Naka, the man behind the original Sonic games, and Zin Hasegawa, who is best known for his work on the Fatal Frame series. In the newest batch of information, players can learn a little more about the story and characters in this speedy adventure.

The story takes place 1,000 years following an attempted invasion of Garuda, a floating kingdom, by Naga, a technologically advanced earthbound empire. Princess Cecilia, the daughter of the ruler of Naga, attempted to escape Garuda during the invasion, but she was trapped. In response, she entrusted Rodea, her robotic bodyguard, with half of the Key of Time, an item that is important to the success of Naga's invasion of Garuda. Princess Cecilia uses the power of her remaining half of the Key to teleport away, making Naga's invasion unsuccessful.

As the years passed, the historical significance of the invasion by Naga was written off, but when a girl named Ion in a small village in Garuda discovers a deactivated Rodea, the adventure begins. Rodea is reactivated by Ion, only to remember nothing outside of his last mission to save Garuda and the face of Princess Cecilia, who Ion happens to look like.
