One of the things I love about Larian Studios is how much fun they seem to have in their game design. The new Polymorph school of magic, for instance, not only allows you to buff your playable character with specific features like wings to gain new ground in combat or tentacles to strip weapons from your foes, but you can also turn enemies (or friends) into chickens. And that's just in a combat situation as those same skills can be used out of battle in some creative ways as well.

LittleBigPlanet 3's Mass Effect Costume Mash UpSam Tyler

LBP3 has a strong tradition of adding popular costume packs from other games, so why break with it?  The pack contains five new costumes for the grand total of nothing that allows you to dress Sackboy and his pals up like various races from the new action RPG.

Included in this sale are multiple titles for the Xbox One including Zombie Army Trilogy, which features co-op, with our review saying, "If you like games that don't require much in the way of progression or time-consuming leveling-up for characters, then this a fine way to kill some time (and zombies) with a group of friends." The review can be read in full here. Also on Xbox One comes WWE 2k17 and Mafia III, both deluxe and standard editions.

The most frustrating aspect of the mode is still the dependency on having all four player slots filled. Mass Effect: Andromeda does not scale its missions to the number of players - meaning you'll be forced to fill a game with public players if you only have one or two friends handy.

Prior to my hands-on demo of the game, I had the chance to sit down with Phoenix Labs President and Co-Founder, Jesse Houston. Phoenix Labs was founded in 2014 and is composed of 40 close-knit developers who have career histories together. Many of these devs have had previous positions are big name studios like Riot, Bioware, and Blizzard, so this certainly isn’t their first rodeo.

Applicants will be chosen based on what the developers are looking for in previous experience (a common practice) but anyone can fill out an application to try the Alpha, here. While the game does not have a set release besides '2017', it is a highly anticipated title, with a team assembled from ex Bioware, Blizzard, Capcom, and RIOT developers. You can check out Tally's impressions of the title when she got hands-on with it at PAX East.

The first APEX Mission, titled "Drack's Missing Scouts," lasts until 1:00 PM EDT on Monday, March 27. The event features the "Firebase Paradox" map, which will only be available during the event, and tasks your squad with tracking down some missing Krogan scouts on the kett-infested world. Alongside the map, a new kit (the Krogan Gladiator) and a new weapon (the Ruzad Shotgun) have been added to the in-game Store packs. Fortunately, those are permanent additions and won't disappear next week.

Fractured Worlds is part of the Overkill Edition package and will introduce a new story arc for the action RPG. Players dive into a new plane of existence formed from the collision of multiple broken worlds. You know, ordinary stuff. Four new dungeons await Victor, all of which shift layouts on a daily basis. There's also The Fracture to explore, an endless dungeon with new challenges at each tier. Fractured Worlds also increases the level cap to 60, adds an additional Destiny Card slot, brings in new crafting recipes, and introduces Talismans, a new kind of item that changes both visual appearance and the combat capabilities.

The latest Knights of Valour is a brand new game, not a remix or re-release of an older title. The console overhaul adds a ton of new upgrades, characters, secrets, and boss battles, all while carefully preserving the spirit of its arcade heritage. Players take control of a hero with a highly customizable skillset, all of which is upgradeable as you collect and find new equipment. The core of the game is focused on hack and slash combat, of course, so no matter how much you geek out over stats, at the end of the day it's about destroying some baddies.
