While there is quite a bit of buzz in the air today for Microsoft's big reveal of the next Xbox, Sony is working on putting out as much information as possible to get folks excited for the PlayStation 4. This includes discussion of the console port of the popular action-RPG, Diablo 3, which recently celebrated a year anniversary since it first saw release on the PC. A console port of the game seemed highly unlikely at first, despite the great deal of speculation, but along with the announcement of the PS4 came the bit of news that had thousands across the internet shouting "I KNEW IT!" This was immediately followed by a thousand more cynical statements of, "psh, it'll never work. PC MASTER RACE!"
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Unless that rose was called Flatulent Rebellion, the new subtitle for the 4 player Hack 'n' Slash 'n' Fart game Orc Attack. The going hasn't been easy for Orc Attack, but developers Casual Brothers are still planning to release the game on PC and other platforms. To celebrate the new name, The Casual Brothers Grim have released a gas-centric trailer.
New details have emerged about Charlie Murder, the upcoming music-themed RPG/beat-em-up from Ska Studios. The game has been in development for quite some time, but new details leak out on a regular basis, so we're still pretty psyched about it. Charlie Murder will rely heavily on gaining levels, boosting stats with ability points, and finding/using various pieces of equipment, which includes things like badass Viking helmets, t-shirts, gloves and relics.
Mario has had some classic levels throughout his games; some of them great fun, but some of them spooky. I always found the underwater levels the most worrisome and in homage to these, the developer behind Rayman Legends has produced their own. In this latest trailer for the 4/5 player co-op, out August 30th, Rayman and two friends go underwater for some fishy slaughter.
While the release date may have been pushed back to August, Disney Infinity is alive and well. As proof, there's a video! And it's got pirates! The new teaser shows off the Pirates of the Caribbean Play Set, complete with sword fighting, cannons firing, ships sailing, and Jack Sparrow being a general snark as he slides across ropes. And yes, a Kraken is summoned. Because you're kinda required to do that at this point.
It is only one day until any Borderlands 2 player willing to drop $9.99/800MSPs will get to meet the new Psycho character, Krieg. He is lean, mean and ultra-keen to cleave you in two. This new video highlights some of the skills that Krieg brings to the band of Vault Hunters - they mostly consist of the ability to run straight at the enemy and take a Bullymong of damage.
Coffee Stain Studios has been releasing a steady stream of teaser trailers these last few weeks, getting everyone hyped up for its follow-up to 2011's Sanctum. Combining tower defense mechanics with a first person shooter core, Sanctum was a surprising hit. The sequel takes a slightly different path, riding the action train to Shoot-All-The-Things Town, leaving some of the strategy behind in favor of hands-on alien killing.
If you are more lover, than fighter; or pointy eared, buxom wench, than cleric - perhaps the latest character class for Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is for you? The new trailer introduces us to the Elf class, an intelligent, but slightly weaker option. Use spells and distance weapons to help tackle undead minions in the upcoming 4 player co-op game.
Sanctum 2, the sequel to the two-year-old tower defense/FPS crossover Sanctum, now has a release date. In just a week's time (May 15th), Sanctum 2 will be storming onto XBLA and PC for your alien-killing, laser-firing, core-defending pleasure. It should be released on PSN shortly thereafter, but the exact date is currently unspecified.
At this point in time, what with all the Minecrafts and Terrarias loose in the world, the words "dynamic" and "sandbox" don't carry the same raw excitement they once did. It's neat putting blocks in places and building cute houses to live in, but how about some meat on those bones, right? Son of Nor, an action adventure game currently in development (and on Kickstarter) by stillalive studios, is shaping up to be a lot of meat.
Do you enjoy games that exist simply to test your bladder's ability to hold urine? White Noise Online takes a page from the Slender book of game design and drops you and some friends in a dark, spooky woods with the simple goal of collecting a bunch of tape recorders. Don't worry, though, because you've all got flashlights! Flashlights that do little more than attract the scary thing that keeps appearing just outside of your field of vision.
The second map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, titled "Uprising," was released a couple weeks back on the Xbox 360. This $15 pack included with it a new co-op mode, Mob of the Dead, that kept with the Black Ops zombie theme we've previously seen, but with an Italian twist this time around. Set in the 1920s on the well-known prison island of Alcatraz, players step into the role of one of four gangsters (each voiced by a famous celebrity) and try to fight their way out. Nasty traps, gnarly weapons, and plenty of barbed wire covered undead inmates lie in wait for you and your friends.
Another day, another character bio trailer for Scourge: Outbreak. This time it is the very Olde English sounding character called Stonewall. You may think that his power is a detailed knowledge of Hadrian's Wall, but you would be wrong. He is in fact a rounded Biotech character that you can use in this 4 player co-op shooter coming soon to PC, PSN and XBLA.
Stepping into the spotlight one by one, a new series of trailers have begun trickling through the intertubes promoting the impending release of the arcade brawler Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. It starts with Michelangelo, who we already know "is a party dude". He also happens to be the youngest and fastest member of the turtle bunch. The trailer below shows off some of his moves, and the image above shows off his ability to induce nightmares.
I was always more of a Warhammer fan growing up, but that does not stop me from having a soft spot for Dungeons and Dragons, especially in the form of 4 player co-op D&D: Chronicles of Mystara. This combo pack of D&D games is coming in June across PC, XBLA, PSN and Wii U. For any RPG game to work you need to know what class to play - hence these new Fighter and Cleric trailers.
