Destiny 2 developer:

I caught a little bit of yesterday's Bungie Bounty PC stream, in which players tried to queue into and beat the developers in order to earn an exclusive emblem. Far more interesting than the actual gameplay was the atmosphere—which today's 'This Week at Bungie' blog post describes as "supercharged" for the two-hour duration. The word I would use is "spicy", as fans in chat made the most of the chance to put their questions and concerns to sandbox design lead Josh Hamrick and senior crucible designer Kevin Yanes.

The Elder Scrolls Legends expansion Houses of Morrowind went live today after a slight delay (from March 29 to April 5), bringing the strange land of the Dunmer to Bethesda's fantasy CCG. The expansion is notable not only for its incorporation of the studio's best RPG setting, but for the underlying changes it makes to the mechanical side of the game, including the addition of three-attribute cards which necessitate the use expanded deck sizes.

'Violence is your last resort' in stealth roguelike Basingstoke

"Basingstoke is a town in England, renowned for its charming mix of handcrafted and procedurally generated features," according to developer Puppygames. Now, I've been to the UK, and while Basingstoke is a real town located near London—a city whose twisting streets often feel procedurally generated—I'm not sure I believe the studio on this. That said, Basingstoke is also a top-down stealth roguelike set in an oddly adorable version of the town that happens to be overrun with aliens and monsters. Now you've got my attention, Puppygames.

Shaquille O'Neal launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the beatdown brawler Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn in 2014, and for some reason it was successful.

This revelation arrives accompanied by a new trailer that tells the tale of a young lad from the village of Hung Lo and his quest to defeat the wicked Yen-Lo Wang.

Crusader Kings 2 is free on Steam, and you can keep it forever

Crusader Kings 2 is a medieval grand strategy game that has players vying to establish and expand their kingdoms across multiple generations during a time of great political and military strife. Those who like it, like it a lot, but it's not the most accessible thing ever, which has likely kept quite a number of more casual strategy fans away from it. But for the next 48 hours it's free on Steam, and if you grab it during the giveaway it's yours to keep forever.

LawBreakers studio is working on a new project

We liked arena FPS LawBreakers quite a bit, but Boss Key's airborne FPS failed to take off. It's been out for less than a year and its concurrent player count on Steam at this moment is precisely one. After months of languishing, Boss Key Productions has acknowledged in a new statement that the game is not sustainable in its current state. Fortunately that doesn't mean it's giving up on it, nor does it spell the end of the studio, which is now working on a new "passion project."
