about X hours ago from

It’s fair to say that most contemporary gamers wouldn’t be content with a new King’s Quest game that looks like the originals. That means that The Odd Gentlemen, tasked with reviving the classic Sierra franchise, needed to come up with a way to honor the franchise without replicating its older look.

The decision was made to go with hand-painting, using some of the original references for the 1980s franchise. The result is cinematic animation that gives the new King’s Quest title a charming look all its own.

Iron Fish Exposes The Horrors Of Solitude Under The Sea

Earth’s oceans are vast expanses home to some creatures that have never seen the light of the sun. They’ve also likely never seen human divers, so absolutely nothing can go wrong when the two interact. Right?

Iron Fish from BeefJack and developer Dean Edwards hopes to put players up close with some of the unfamiliar elements of undersea life. Players take on the role of Cerys, an investigator with a government-funded naval group.

The Elder Scrolls Online Is Better With Friends

The Elder Scrolls Online is finally coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in less than a month. In order to get you ready, Bethesda put together a video focused on the different ways players can work together.

One of the more interesting notes in the video below is that level disparity is addressed in combat. Encounters scale to the party, which means you can still group with your friends who are lagging behind (or trying to catch you up).
