Since our DungeonLand promotion back in late January, developer Critical Studio has been working very hard to draw in new players heroes to their game. The most recent tweaking of gameplay balance and additional content has given us even more fixes and some crazy character items to obtain, both free and through DLC.
Bring along a healthy controller and a friend for this brawler set in the Sacred universe. Features four playable characters, stat-progression, customizable equipment, and a whole lot of button mashing. Some gameplay decisions prevent this game from truly shining in the herd of brawlers floating around. Still, it is an entertaining romp best experienced with two other friends on the same console.
Sacred Citadel is out NOW! I know it's not Sacred 3, but after we played a little bit of the beat'em up I can say it's more than a pleasant distraction. The combat seemed a little dull for the first few minutes, but then we quickly unlocked some combos that added depth to the beat downs.
Modders are good at either stirring up controversy (how many nude patches for how many games are there, now?) or providing valuable/awesome additions to our games. This is a strong case of the latter. Modder M0tah recently released the Dark Souls Connectivity Fix for the Windows PC version of the game. The little bundle of code makes connecting to friends take priority over random players, meaning you can bring your pals in for battle without delay. Some other network connection fixes were also implemented, but apart from that, the mod doesn't touch the rest of the game. Simple, but useful!
If you could get a demon's soul pretty much for free, you totally would, wouldn't you? And how about Demon's Souls for free, while you're at it? The pleasantly punishing role playing game that's famous for being about as forgiving as a swift kick to the face is slated to be free for PlayStation Plus members for the month of April. Several other games will also but free, but... Demon's Souls!
Today we have a new trailer from Sacred Citadel, the side-scrolling beat'em-up which takes place in the Sacred universe. In the brief video we are introduced to the Seraphim Mage, who apparently has no need of pants. If you've seen the other character videos you'll recognize the tune. This is the final playable playable character in Sacred Citadel. Wielding mighty spells, she joins the Ancarian Ranger, Khukuri Shaman, and Safiri Warrior.
There is no denying that Firaxis knows how to make an addictive game. Like its predecessors, Civilization V is addictive, fun, and engrossing. The first expansion, Civilization V: Gods and Kings, packed a surprising amount of content for an expansion. Firaxis just announced in a press release that the next expansion for Civilization V will be titled "Brave New World." Like Gods and Kings before it, Brave New World will be loaded with extra content. It will also introduce new ways to play the game and carve your way to victory.
It was a little over a month ago I gave some impressions of KingsRoad - a free to play game from Rumble Entertainment that's playable through Facebook or Rumble's own online service. The browser based game is an action-rpg in the same vane as Diablo or Torchlight but is designed to be played in shorter sessions. Since last month, the team has added a new class, the Wizard, and made several enhancements to the game world. Today the game is available for anyone to try - though it's still technically in beta - and the team is treating it as a KingsRoad's coming out party.
There will be more to Sacred Citadel than meets the eye. When we first played the side-scrolling brawler at PAX, I astutely noted that we "pretty much just smashed buttons and killed dudes," but RPG elements like loot and leveling will play more of a roll than I initially thought. Three players will be able to choose from four different character classes, each with their own special abilities.
Attention adventurers: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’s multiplayer mode is now available as free-to-play! But if the multiplayer isn’t something you’re interested in, you can now buy any game mode within Uncharted 3 as individual purchases, or all together as a complete package.
Sacred Citadel will be hitting the digital markets later this year. It's a cooperative side scrolling brawler set in the Sacred universe you know and love, and it will act as a prequel to events in the much anticipated Sacred 3. We got our hands on Sacred Citadel a few months ago at PAX. We had a good time slaughtering our enemies as we engaged in three player local co-op. If you're familiar with Golden Axe, you get the idea. Sacred Citadel is one of those games that looks much better in motion. Screenshots don't really do it justice.
The PlayStation Network is having a month-long sale on select Namco Bandai games for the PS3, Vita, and PSP. You can pick up Ridge Racer 7: 3D License Version, Namco Museum Essentials, Touch My Katamari, and much more for 50% off the regular price. While most of the titles don't feature cooperative play, there are some co-op standouts, including the excellent Dark Souls campaign add-on, "Artorias of the Abyss," as well as a number of extras for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.
For hardcore gamers, Free To Play, has an almost negative stigma associated with it. Combine that with the word "Facebook" and you're looking at the double whammy of disgust. It's not hard to see why, with titles like Farmville begging for social sharing and clicks and other titles cheapening the experience by asking you to pay for gratification. But there are some gems out there that are bucking the trend, the latest is a game from Rumble called KingsRoad - a hack and slash RPG that's playable via Facebook or Rumble's website.
We hope that you enjoying your time today with Dungeonland! But if you haven’t picked up the game yet on PC, we want you to have a look at the game’s unique take on traditional dungeon crawling mechanics.
