The Heroes of the Storm blog has been updated with a new profile of none other than the Queen of Blades herself, Sarah Kerrigan.

Bioware has revealed good news for fans of both their epic single player game, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and of cooperative multiplayer work similar to that found in Mass Effect 3. In an interview with IGN, the team said that multiplayer will run alongside the campaign and that cooperative 'squads' of players would work through random maps of monsters. Additionally, all new heroes will be provided via free downloadable content.
TERA's site has been updated with a new parody of KickStarter to encourage players to run on a thirty day rampage against BAMs, or Big Ass Monsters. The site is keeping track of the number of BAMs killed with specific goals reached earning in-game rewards for players.
NeocoreGames, the minds behind the Amazing Adventures of Van Helsing series, has announced a new title called "Deathtrap". According to information received, Deathtrap is a hybrid between action-RPGs and tower defense games. Neocore is expecting Deathtrap to be released in the fall of 2014.
Citing the need to fine tune Gauntlet for multiplayer goodness, Warner Bros. Interactive has announced that its reimagined Gauntlet will be arriving on September 23rd.
I'm more confident at this point that Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer will be awesome than I am about the single player game. Inquisition seems to hit the right notes in terms of enhancing the series' combat without overdoing it and stripping things away like Dragon Age II did, and this bodes well for a multiplayer component that focuses squarely on the game's combat systems.

Ubisoft Blue Byte recently posted an article where business analyst Teut Weidemann criticized the globally recognized MOBA League of Legends and their parent company, Riot Games, for not focusing on their profits. Okay, so that's not the way it was worded, but it's easy to read between the lines and is taking a jab at Riot, pointing out that they have a questionable business model which should, in theory, be making substantially more money than it currently does.

With Kerbal Space Program's official move (finally) to beta, now seemed like as good a time as any to go over why this is one of my favorite games of the past year, and do an introductory walkthrough of the game and the latest features. In part 1 of this two part series I cover some of the basics of the game while looking at some new features from the latest patch, cheekily titled Beta Than Ever.
In part 2 I stage a mission to the Mun and cover several successes and failures at staging, getting into orbit and getting down safely(?) onto the larger of Kerbin's 2 natural satellites.
Part 1 --
Part 2 --
I'm kicking around the idea of doing a full career series, so let me know if you'd be interested in seeing more!
