Enhanced Edition Journeys To PC This Spring

about X hours ago from

XSeed is bringing an enhanced version of Ys VI: Ark of the Napishtim to Steam, The Humble Store, and GOG this spring. Considering Ys VI has been unavailable since Konami’s PlayStation 2 and PSP ports in 2005 and 2006, this is a great opportunity to experience the game that helped shape Ys: Origin and Ys: The Oath in Felghana.

In addition to the high-resolution graphics and full USB controller support, brand new features have been added to the western release including full widescreen support, the ability to warp between checkpoints, and a brand new difficulty setting called Catastrophe Mode. The extra hard difficulty setting makes it impossible to pick up and store healing items because they are now immediately used when collected.

Slow-Motion Trailer Shows Off Violent Space Pioneering

Trailblazing into new territory is rarely a peaceful process, and it’s foolish to think the expansion into space would be any less bloody. Atari has revealed the grisly premier trailer for developer Salty Games' first-person MMO space survival game, Asteroids: Outpost. Underwater in space, no one can hear your pet goldfish scream.

Check out the trailer below to see a stylish, slow-motion glimpse at the chaotic interstellar frontier. Be sure to also check out three new screenshots in the media gallery below this story.

New Trailer Shows How To Make A Buck

New Trailer Shows How To Make A Buck

Last week, Splash Damage released a tutorial video focusing on the game's controls, characters, weapons, and abilities. Learning how to play is certainly important, but today's new trailer gets right down to business. You might think that an abandoned city isn't the best place to find a job – and that's where you'd be wrong. While your character is a mercenary or a private-military contractor, there's room to explore a few part-time jobs, too.

These might not be officially sanctioned careers, but players can live out their dreams working with trains, throwing surprise parties, and more. You're in an evacuated London five years from now following the aftermath of a dirty-bomb explosion, so you can basically do whatever you want.

An Brief, Icy Look At Star Wars Battlefront’s Hoth

An Brief, Icy Look At Star Wars Battlefront’s Hoth

There is a reason that so many Star Wars games take us to The Empire Strikes Back setting of Hoth. The evacuation of the Rebel Alliance gave us snow speeders, AT-ATs, and tow cables. It looks like we’ll be headed back to the ice planet once more.

The official EA Star Wars account shared a short clip of the skirmish from the point of view of a soldier on the ground. It’s not clear if this is in-engine, so don’t get your hopes up quite yet.

Well, that speeder isn't going anywhere. Can someone give us a lift to @SW_Celebration http://t.co/srEVrAA0zl #SWCA https://t.co/4W4LG8myke

Evolve's Newest Hunters & Behemoth Trade Blows In Gameplay Video

about X hours ago from

March 31 is a big day for Evolve, as that's when it gets a new monster and four new hunters, among other content. If you're interested in just what these additions bring to the table, developer Turtle Rock Games has released a new gameplay video showcasing a match between these formidable forces.

The video reveals the Behemoth's useful roll, rock wall, and tongue grab, as well as the hunter's varied skills and weapons – including the medic's leech gun and the assault's weak-spot creating shrapnel grenade. The video contains useful commentary filled with plenty of tips on how to best play as either the monster or one of the hunters.

Regardless if you get the Behemoth or new set of hunters, you'll still be able to play Evolve with those who have. The Behemoth is free to those who preordered the game (otherwise it's $14.99), and the hunters are part of the Hunting Season Pass ($24.99) or $7.49 individually. Observer mode and two new maps are free to everyone on March 31. The maps hit Xbox One first on that date, and the other platforms get them on April 30.

Review In Progress

Review In Progress

Pillars of Eternity is a big game. I’ve spent recent days digging into a review build of Obsidian’s spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate II, and if there’s one takeaway, it’s that players have a lot of content to look forward to. We’re holding off on a review until I’ve completed the game and had the chance to dig into more side quests and stronghold building options the game has to offer. In the meantime, if you are on the fence about a day-one purchase, I’m here to share my opinions so far.

There are any number of things that can go wrong in the latter acts of a role-playing game to spoil the fun. Balance can go off-kilter, story threads can get mishandled, and character upgrades can run out of steam. With those caveats, the first hours spent in Pillars of Eternity have me incredibly impressed.  Obsidian’s RPG does almost everything I hoped it would do, presenting a compelling world, challenging tactical combat, and numerous opportunities for interesting role-playing interactions.
