Saturday, October 25, 2014

Koei Tecmo has announced the upcoming release of Bladestorm: Nightmare for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PS3. The action game will allow players to take on the role of a mercenary who can choose to fight for England or Fance with missions inspired by real events and battles. Read on.

From the Press Release
KOEI TECMO America is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Troop Command Action title, Bladestorm: Nightmare. The follow up to 2007’s Bladestorm: the Hundred Years War will be unleashed across North America in early 2015 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. There will also be a PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system digital only version available at the same time.


Bladestorm: Nightmare is a troop command action game where the player takes the role of a mercenary and chooses to fight either for England or for France in missions inspired by real events and battles of the era dubbed ‘the Hundred Years War’, a conflict that raged between 1337 and 1453 between the House of Plantagenet (England) and the House of Valois (France), also implicating most western-European kingdoms at one time or another.

Revisiting one of the lengthiest and most politically unstable periods in European history, Omega Force has developed this title in a way that allows the player to assume command of different kinds of troops (e.g. melee, mounted, ranged) and armies, while it also offers them the opportunity to develop their own unique character, increase their fame, gold, and army and complete various missions irrespective of sides and loyalty.

Bladestorm: Nightmare will also include a mode called ‘Nightmare’, which features an original scenario not based on historical events. The new mode allows the player to take control of an additional 32 playable characters, based both on fictional and prominent historical figures of the time like Edward the Black Prince, the legendary Joan of Arc, or the astute military leader and knight La Hire among others.

New Details Revealed For Rogue Wizards

Spellbind Studios has announced the release of a new trailer for Rogue Wizards introducing new elements of the game with the ongoing Kickstarter that ends on November 11th. Read on.

Spellbind Studios, an independent games studio dedicated to creating high quality and accessible core role-playing games, is proud to share a new trailer introducing the Forgestone and Cauldron crafting systems for Rogue Wizards, a rogue-like, dungeon-crawling, town-building RPG for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android platforms. In development for over a year, Rogue Wizards is recruiting fans looking for a new world building RPG meets dungeon delving experience to help support its ongoing development via Kickstarter that ends on November 11.


“We’re excited to offer our growing base of supporters and fans a closer look at our crafting system via the Forgestone and Cauldron, which complement the procedurally generated dungeon and loot systems in Rogue Wizards,” said Spellbind Studios founder Colin Day. “Our project has secured approximately half of its goal, which is a great milestone for us. We’d like to thank our community for helping us get this far and ask for their continued support in spreading the word of our project over the next few weeks to help make Rogue Wizards a reality.”

Rogue Wizards invites players to battle creatures, collect loot, master magic, and build a Wizard Tower in a rogue-like, dungeon-crawling, town-building RPG. At the heart of Rogue Wizards’ unique approach to these game genres, lies its dungeon mode. Featuring procedurally generated environments and loot, no two dungeons or weapons will be the same, offering players an incredible amount of re-playability and character progression as they uncover the mystery behind a series of portals appearing in the world. Although combat features a traditional turn-based combat system, fans of the genre will notice a remarkable increase in terms of pacing; battles feel fast and furious while still requiring strategy and planning.

In between rounds of exploring dungeons, slaying creatures, and discovering new loot, players can also look forward to a complex and rewarding Town Building experience at the Wizard Tower. Here, players can enhance and customize the way they play by building a thriving town, brewing their own reagents, crafting and buying their own gear, powering up their magic, and recruiting help in order to further strengthen their Wizard for diving into deeper and more difficult dungeons.

Extreme Reality Launches Virtual Reality Platform iCAMsurf for PC

By : BGG Staff on Friday, October 24, 2014 | 3:23 PM

Friday, October 24, 2014

Extreme Reality has announced the launch of their virtual reality surfing simulator for PC called iCAMsurf.

Dreamfall Chapters-Book One (Video Game Review)

Dreamfall Chapters-Book One is the first release in a two book series from developer and publisher Red Thread Games that will finally see a conclusion to the Dreamfall franchise that began with the releases of The Longest Journey and Dreamfall. The game has been in production for quite a long time including a script that was originally announced back in 2007, but it wasn't until the game received its own studio from creator Ragnar Tørnquist and a whopping $1.5 million was earned for the game during a successful Kickstarter campaign that fans realized the sequel was more than a fleeting dream. Dreamfall Chapters-Book One is a highly emotional and very entertaining world for players to explore, and fans will anxiously be counting down the days to the release of Book Two after playing the newest release.

The narrative of Dreamfall Chapters-Book One is set after the previous two releases in the series and remains a very complex and detail oriented storyline that will take newcomers to the franchise a while to understand. The campaign often jumps between multiple settings including what is referred to as our reality and a dream world full of magic. Stark depicts a futuristic version of Earth where technology rules and chaos seems to loom around every corner despite the world's citizens seeming to be oblivious to their current reality. Arcadia is the separate world that is full of magic and wonders not seen in the other reality. The worlds are connected through dreams, and part of the game's storyline focuses on the two locations and the similarities they share.



Zoe Castillo is the star of Dreamfall Chapters-Book One, though players will control multiple characters throughout the game. Zoe begins the game trapped in a coma and dealing with the fallout of the events of the last game in the series. Players will learn about Zoe's powers in the dream world through a carefully crafted tutorial that also helps to introduce a couple of key characters and narrative themes. In the dream world, Zoe is a powerful entity capable of saving others from their nightmares and helping them awaken in the real world, but Zoe has a tough time accepting herself for who she truly is in reality. The deep tones and emotional situations are present throughout the entire campaign featured in the new release, and the excellent writing will have players carefully contemplating their every action during the game.

Dreamfall Chapters-Book One plays on ideas seen throughout the Dreamfall series and in other popular titles such as Telltale franchises or The Broken Age. Players will be faced with several options throughout the campaign, such as to kill a suffering man or let him be, and each decision has important consequences later in the game. The title states that characters will "remember" certain actions, and players can help direct the next step for the narrative by making different choices in gameplay. The title also incorporates online statistics for some choices so that players can compare their decisions with other players throughout the campaign.

Gameplay in Dreamfall Chapters-Book One also revolves around simple puzzles similar to what would be seen in the point-and-click genre. Players will need to search for key items in the environment to use on enemies or otherwise use to progress through certain areas. Players will sometimes have access to special powers or items to use in conjunction with items found in the game environments as well. Dreamfall Chapters-Book One is played from the third-person camera perspective in a 3D world built on Unity Engine, despite the game's predecessors using different mechanics, but the new game is truly immersive thanks to the new improvements the game has made during development.



Though the writing for Dreamfall Chapters-Book One is its strongest attribute, the storyline is not perfect. The game tends to jump around from certain scenes to others that have seemingly nothing in common with the previous scene at first. The jumps can be abrupt and jarring for players' experiences with the game. When the action switches to Zoe's real life, some of the day-to-day life experiences for the character can get boring for a short time as well, since going to work or buying lunch inside a video game is most definitely not the most exciting thing gamers have performed in their gaming careers, however, in the end the hidden treasures around the game can definitely offer up some unique experiences.

Dreamfall Chapters-Book One is a decent looking game that doesn't feature the best character models and designs, but the game often creates very atmospheric locations to explore that will keep players enthralled with the story being weaved by Tørnquist and company. The new title does feature a strong soundtrack that helps evoke the strong emotions the game sets forth to draw out of players with every line of dialogue or interaction with an item in the game's environments. The game is easy to control and play even for fans that aren't the most dedicated gamers, and one thing Dreamfall Chapters-Book One does better than any others in the genre is to present choices with brief descriptions with character narration to help players make the exact choices they want for each playthrough of the game.

Dreamfall Chapters-Book One is a great release that is setting the stage for an epic conclusion with Dreamfall Chapters-Book Two. Only time will tell how great the ending will be for one of the better storylines video games has ever told, but fans will no doubt be excited to see how this franchise will end. The narrative can be a bit confusing for newcomers to the series, and there are some pacing issues at times that will see the story jump from mundane moments to absolutely exciting and amazing events with no warning, but the story is an overall highly enjoyable experience that gamers and fans of great storytelling can appreciate. Dreamfall Chapters-Book One is out now on PlayStation 4 and Steam.

Dreamfall Chapters is now available for PlayStation 4, PC, Mac and Linux and can be purchased for $29.99. For more information on the game, check out the official Dreamfall Chapters website.

  • Single Player

Buy and Resell Video Games with GameLock

GameLock has officially launched its new website that allows gamers to find, purchase and resell their games all at prices that beat purchasing new and reselling to major retailers. With GameLock, gamers lock-in their purchases and resale dates with the option to mail back their game at 30, 60 and 90-day intervals and receive cash back for their game. Selling back the game is completely optional but allows gamers to receive more cash back than selling with other methods. Read on to learn more about this new offer.

Until now, reselling pre-owned games has been a painful process. Gamers wanting to maximize the resale price of their games had to resort to online auction sites or marketplaces. The time-consuming process of listing the game for sale and waiting for a buyer, along with the uncertainty of not knowing if and for how much the game would sell, discouraged many gamers from reselling. The only other option was to trade in the game for pennies on the dollar at major retailers.

“I knew there had to be a better way and that’s why I started GameLock.com,” said Founder and CEO, Andy Altschuler. “When gamers buy a game at GameLock.com, they can lock-in a guaranteed future resale. If they choose to exercise the resale option, they simply place the game into our prepaid envelope and drop it in the mailbox. Or if they choose not to resell, they can simply keep the game, just like with a traditional purchase.”

GameLock.com currently offers a full catalog of new release video games for sale, with the ability to lock-in an optional-yet-guaranteed resale date of 30, 60 or 90 days. In the near future, GameLock.com will release additional innovative purchasing features.

For more information on the company, check out the official GameLock website.
