‘Boundless MMO’ Dual Universe announces itself to the world
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 May 2016, 9:00 am
Back in February of this year, Massively OP got wind of an upcoming science-fiction MMO in development called Dual Universe. This looked like an interesting sandbox that promised a single-server realm and the ability to edit and manipulate most anything in the world. Back then, developer Novaquark wasn’t quite ready to fully put the game out there (although the studio wasn’t hiding [...]

'Battlecast' turns 'Skylanders' into a collectible card game
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 May 2016, 9:00 am

Activision Blizzard has seen a ton of success with two franchises in recent years: Skylanders, which kicked off the toys-to-life craze, and Hearthstone, which made collectible card games (CCG) accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Now, it's mashing the two together for Skylanders Battlecast, a CCG aimed at children. Announced last summer, it's finally available across North America and Europe from today.

Just like regular Skylanders games, Battlecast is very much focused on you buying real-world items. The game itself will be available on iOS or Android (both Google and Amazon flavours) as a free download. To make the most of it, you'll need to buy cards. There are 24 character cards to collect, along with numerous Spell, Gear and Relic cards that will allow you to attack enemies, change stats or modify the playing field. Think Magic: The Gathering's Equipment, Artifacts and Enchantments and you won't be far off.

Colour Me Happy: Music Explorer Hummingbird Out Now
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 May 2016, 7:39 am
Niall Moody is a creative chap who tends towards abstract, eye-catching, and slightly off-the-wall videogames – some of which you might’ve spotted here on RPS over the years. His latest, Hummingbird [Itch page], follows suit and is billed as an “infinite procedural exploration game”. I dived in earlier this morning and although convinced I’d been […]

Nova Alea [official site] is the most recent Molleindustria game.

'Ori and the Blind Forest' finally makes its way to retail
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2016, 11:57 pm
What began on Xbox One as a digital title, then a definitive edition on the same console, followed by one on PC is finally making its way to bricks and mortar stores. On June 14th, you'll be able to walk into your favorite fine purveyor of video games and grab a hard copy of Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition for $20. More than just the base game with added bits to explore and story to (probably) cry over, a post on Xbox Wire says the domestic physical release includes Ori's soundtrack on CD. It isn't glow-in-the-dark vinyl, but hey, at least you won't have to get up to flip the record every 20 minutes or so next month.

The ultimate goal of the Darkfall: New Dawn team is not just to relaunch the original Darkfall with no alterations, hence the subtitle. However, while the full-on reboot is being developed, the team is providing players with the InDev server, which is just straight-up classic 2012 Darkfall. But how do you get players to play on a server that’s definitely [...]
