A Look At The Four Classes

Fall's upcoming Gauntlet reboot seeks to make the classic dungeon crawler relevant again while still maintaining its classic charm. Though Arrowhead hasn't delved too deeply into an existing IP with a legacy like Gauntlet's, its solid Magicka and what we've seen of the upcoming Helldivers, show that the indie developer is up to the task.

For those unfamiliar with Gauntlet, the original 1985 release set a precedent for dungeon crawling action experiences. We had the chance to look at the four characters you can play in the action/RPG.

Note: This demo was played with an Xbox 360 gamepad on PC.

New Gameplay Video Shows What Celebrimbor Brings Into Battle

about X hours ago from

Last week, we learned that the wraith who accompanies Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's hero is none other than Celebrimbor. The elf helped forge the rings of power for Sauron, before being betrayed and tortured. There's clearly no love lost between the two, which is why Celebrimbor is accompanying the ranger Talion on his own quest for revenge. A new gameplay video shows that the wraith isn't just along for the ride.

The wraith (and players) can dive into the minds of his foes, learning their strengths, weaknesses, and other key information. For example, a fearsome-looking opponent may harbor a deep fear of bees, and dropping a hive on him could cause him to flee in terror. Celebrimbor can also possess enemies, forcing them to fight one another on your behalf.

Character Deep Dive – Nisha

about X hours ago from

The third and final (for now) Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel character deep dive brings us to our friendly, neighborhood lawbringer. Nisha brings some variety to the stable, with a melee whip and some nifty two-gun action.

Nisha’s special ability, Showdown, lets her hone in on enemies. When activated, you’ll automatically aim at enemies and gain bonuses in gun damage (except for sniper rifles and rocket launchers), fire rate, reload speed, accuracy, and bullet speed. You can quickly cycle to the next enemy by holding the left trigger or L2 and flicking the right stick. 

Nisha isn’t really a team player. She doesn’t offer up any skills that benefit her teammates. Instead, she has three different flavors of hot lead.
