A new developer diary from Phantom Compass dives deep in the unexpected genre mash-up.

Alongside some details on how the game works, you will also get to see some gameplay and learn more about the members of your party – like the drunk knight whose physics start off wobbly and inaccurate.

Rollers of the Realm is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Vita in November. The latter two versions will be cross-buy compatible, meaning when you buy one, you get both versions.

Tim Howard & FIFA 15 On What It Takes To Be A Great Keeper

about X hours ago from

Tim Howard's performance in goal for the U.S. in the recent World Cup was legendary; highlighted by some quick, reflexive saves. FIFA 15 is trying to replicate this kind of instinctual performance with its new keeper A.I.

The new trailer for the game shows off some of the instincts good goalkeepers must have to get a finger, toe, or any other body part on the ball. These kind of reflexive saves haven't been seen in past iterations of the series.

FIFA 15 comes out on September 23 for a wide variety of systems*

Bungie Celebrates The Destiny Community & Level 20+ Players

about X hours ago from

Bungie has unveiled another weekly Q&A, and in it the developer talks beta nameplates, special badges, high-ranking adventures, and more.

The developer revealed that beta nameplates will be given out for those that participated, and Bungie community members can also earn special badges for their contributions including their forum status and having played multiple Bungie titles. Gamers can pick up these goodies in-game by visiting Tess in the Tower.

Bungie also gave a snapshot of what awaits players after level 20: Heroic mode progressions for Daily Heroic Story Chapters and Weekly Heroic Strikes. These require exceptional gear in order to defeat high-level enemies. Strikes' modifiers also increase the difficulty such as making arc weapons even deadlier. This is good for players, but also makes enemies with those type of weapons harder, too. Bounties are also important for post-level 20 players due to the high amount of XP they deliver.

Strategy MMO Wakfu Comes Out Of Beta And Onto Steam This Month

Tactics RPGs are typically thought of as solo affairs or strictly one-on-one multiplayer. Ankama Games’ Wakfu bends that preconception, combining strategy play with MMO concepts.[Excerpts]

The title has been in beta for some time, and it’s almost ready for its coming out party. Wakfu will arrive on Steam on September 18. Those participating in the beta now will be pleased to know that there will not be a server wipe.

All of your progression and items will carry over to the final release. There are some closed beta keys still available, and you can try to nab one via the Steam community page. For a look at the game, check out the screenshots below. You can also read up on a board game called Krosmaster Arena, which uses some of the characters from Wakfu.

Warhammer 40,000 Eternal Crusade At PAX Prime 2014

about X hours ago from

At PAX Prime 2014, I sat down with Behavior Interactive’s Warhammer 40,000 Eternal Crusade for a play session to see what was happening with the PC (And current-gen console) PVP-centric MMO. The combat still feels fluid and fresh, from blasting away with heavy mounted turrets, cruising in tanks and vehicles, and unleashing precision melee strikes from the sky on unsuspecting targets. Note that the image shown here is from the pre-alpha work in progress version.

Our play session highlighted a small forces objective capture (In the real game, such battles would probably include hundreds of players, not six) that had the aggressors move through a death canyon under heavy fire to set up a mobile spawn point and lay siege. We had the chance to use several units, including slow moving heavies with devastating gatling weapons and speedier jetpack loadouts.

Combat is skill-based, so someone who’s quick to learn the systems should have no problem taking on veteran players with augmented loadouts. There’s blocking, block breaking, dodging, a cover system, grenades, medpacks, and a host of other systems at work during any given skirmish, and with hundreds of players engaging in each battle things the action is sure to be unending.

For those that have both a PlayStation 4 and a Vita, the ability to play remotely on the small screen is a neat feature. It doesn’t work well with every game, though. But Bungie has taken some extra steps to entice you to give it Destiny a try on the small screen.

In a new video, you can see the game in action as well as some of the control tweaks that make it usable. Of note, there are no back-touch functions, meaning you’re free to hold your Vita however you like.

This War Of Mine Isn't A Game You Win, It's One You Survive

This War Of Mine Isn't A Game You Win, It's One You Survive

At GDC, we had a chance to check out 11-bit's This War of Mine, which brings new perspective to life in a warzone. We're used to playing as the heroic soldier, mowing down countless, faceless enemies. This War of Mine puts us in control of the powerless refugees.

Since GDC, 11-bit has refined some of the game to reinforce the theme. In previous builds, you could get rewards for evil acts like stealing. The team has removed those incentives, and put in detrimental effects that take a mental toll on the survivors in your group.

This War of Mine keeps resource management at the center, and you'll need to manage your food, medicine, and crafting materials to keep everyone under your care whole. Knowing who to give a precious bed to overnight, whether to give food to a passing stranger (who may then join your group), and which location to scavenge at night are all smaller decisions that add up quickly.

See The Assassin Hunter In Action In New Trailer

Shay Patrick Cormac's adventure is set between the events of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed III, so it stands to reason that he'd run into a few prominent faces from that fictional history. A new Assassin's Creed Rogue trailer shows a few of them, as well as plenty of slow-motion action.

In the video, you can see Edward Kenway's comrade Adéwalé at the helm of a ship, and it's clear from his expression that he's not especially thrilled about Shay's conversion from Assassin to the Templar cause. A little after the 30-second mark, you can see flashes of Shay fighting someone who looks an awful lot like Achilles Davenport in his familiar home. Achilles mentored Conor in Assassin's Creed III, reluctantly at first, perhaps due to the sting of Shay's betrayal.
