about X hours ago from

I know you're probably thinking, "Haven't I already played a bunch of Angry Birds sequels?" You're not wrong, but this is the first one to receive the coveted number two after the title.

Regarding what separates this game from the original or any of its many follow-ups – it's not clear yet. A teaser for the game, which you can see below, features realistic pigs and boxes on a realistic beach. It would be easy to mistake it for a teaser for a new Far Cry game.

Cinematic Trailer Shows Emperor Karl Franz In Massive Total War: Warhammer Battle

about X hours ago from

Emperor Karl Franz isn't the kind of leader who's afraid to get his hands dirty on the battlefield, as evidenced in a new Total War: Warhammer trailer. The in-engine cinematic shows the Battle of Fire Pass, which pits the Empire against the Greenskins.

The clip may not have a shred of gameplay in it, but it does capture the feel of a fantasy battle. It's also a great showcase for the Demigryphs, which we saw earlier this week in another trailer. It's clearer than ever that Creative Assembly wasn't joking around when they said these lion/eagle hybrids were an invaluable tool of war.

Asymmetrical Multiplayer Meets Survival Horror

about X hours ago from

The Flock, an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game, counts each player death. Once the community reaches a certain number of deaths, the indie title will no longer be available for purchase, leaving game owners to battle it out in an as-of-now unannounced finale. After this climatic ending, The Flock will go offline – permanently. 

According to developer Vogelsap's creative director Jeroen Van Hasselt, The Flock aims to combine frenetic multiplayer action, survival horror, and good storytelling. "In opposition to other multiplayer games," says Hasselt, "we want The Flock's experience to inspire a sense of awe, to keep players eagerly anticipating what is coming next and to end with a memorable climax." To see how this looks in action, check out the alpha trailer below.

Preserving The Blue Bomber's History

about X hours ago from

We got our hands on the impending nostalgia overload Mega Man Legacy Collection at E3, and today Capcom has shared even more about the game. Challenge Mode will have over 50 trials for Mega Man to overcome. As confirmed before, these challenges will have leaderboard and replay support. Nabbing the bronze medal or higher is the only way to unlock more.

Capcom also shed some light on why Mega Man 7 and Mega Man 8 are not included in the collection. Developer Digital Eclipse is focusing on the first six 8-bit titles because of their visual and design similarities. Mega Man 7 and 8 would require much different processes to preserve in the same way, Capcom claims. Digital Eclipse isn't just emulating Mega Man 1 through 6, but using original assets to "rebuild" them. Therefore, some flicker and slowdown caused from the source code will remain, while hardware-level glitches will be eliminated.

Mega Man Legacy Collection has filters that recreate the visual quirks of old televisions. There are also three display options. "Full" is how the game was presented at E3, with the original aspect ratio stretched vertically. The "original" setting is just the "sharpest possible image that maintains the original game's intended aspect ratio" according to Capcom. The Legacy Collection will include a 16:9 stretch mode as well.

Update: The new game from the creator of Neverending Nightmares, the sort-of-sequel Devastated Dreams, is now accepting pledges on Kickstarter.

The tiers are fairly straightforward offering alpha and beta access to the game as well as digital copies, but the higher tiers offer incentives like the ability to name the game's protagonist for $5,000, or $10,000 to rent the game's creator Matt Gilgenbach for a day. You can check out the Kickstarter campaign here.

While that may hint at a free-to-play model, Rodeo prefers to release its games with premium pricing (up front cost). Purchase gives you access to all nine acts (approximately forty missions and fifteen hours of play).
