Divinity: Original Sin 2 (henceforth D:OS2) is currently in pre-alpha, which means that only specific parts are currently ready for player consumption. The new feature Larian Studios was demonstrating at PAX East was the Player Vs. Player (PVP) Arena system for the game. Had I known I would be facing Swen Vincke (founder, creative director, and CEO of Larian) himself in PVP, I may well have decided to stay in bed that Saturday morning. As it was, I found myself going up against him, both of us with two characters: a Warrior and a Ranger.

Rogue Stormers Co-Op ReviewJason Love

Rogue Stormers is a game that feels like the product of two different minds. One wanted a platform shooter with RPG mechanics, the other wanted a difficult shooter that was reminiscent of Contra. The result, unfortunately, is a mess of both....

Our stream recap looks at the first few levels of the game, as the team has a bit of trouble getting too deep into the dungeons. Why? Mostly because we found the game to be a bit unbalanced, with plenty of bullet sponges and chaos. Luckily the latest communication on steam from the developers addresses this, and says it's on their list of things to fix. We'll have our full review later today, in the meantime, check out the stream.

To get things started, all you have to do is download the game from the Xbox Marketplace or PlayStation Store. PC users will need to head to Origin.com to start their trial. (Sorry, no Steam freebie.) After the trial time expires you can buy the game to hold onto unlocks, achievements, and game progress. EA Access and Origin Access members even get a 10% discount when purchasing the digital version of the game.

During the almost hour-long panel, the developers briefly talked about the new "fairy" frame, which has yet to be named, and stated that she would use those razor-edged butterfiles you see floating around her as one of her powers. Additionally, she would have "floaty powers" and would be able to "shrinks down to attack normal-sized enemies." Along with those details, they revealed that the existing Warframe, Vauban, would be getting a Prime version and that they've got some new events planned for the year, which seem to include something to do with the Grineer's matriachs.

I’ve never played a Shadow Warrior game, so when I went to my appointment, I was going in fairly blind. As chance would have it, there was a short wait for the press terminal. This meant I could catch myself up on a lot of the story background with writer Scott Anderson. Scott’s job was to update the humor in the franchise - a balance of staying true to the feeling of the IP while making it feel like a modern-day game. The final result? Lo Wang is still the brash, over-the-top persona that Shadow Warrior fans expect, but with a new character that accompanies Lo Wang to balance him out. The events of the game have resulted in Lo Wang’s soul being fused together with another character (I believe her name is Kameko). She is none too impressed with Lo Wang’s attitude and neither of them are happy about their shared situation. She provides snarky comments and retorts to Lo Wang that only he can hear.

The "Hoops" mode places a distinct emphasis on aerials as you'll be attempting to get the ball up in the air and over the rim of a giant hoop. This is the perfect mode in which to test your flying skills, or hone them. You can also purchase some new flags so you can proudly sport the logo of your favorite basketball team.

It may be a two year old game, but Pre-Sequel's got a lot of love left to give. It's seen a release on previous gen consoles as well as PC, yet this version doesn't quite fit either of those categories. It's technically an Android game, but you have to have an Nvidia Shield TV box in order to play. Not an Nvidia Shield Tablet or that Nvidia clamshell handheld thingy, just the TV device. If you've got the hardware, Pre-Sequel is easily the beefiest game you can download. It currently sells for a respectable $14.99 and requires the controller to play.

If you already own the songs, or if you purchase them prior to the 5th, then you'll be fine. You'll still be able to play and access those songs in the game as if nothing changed. Harmonix hasn't stated anything about these songs coming over into Rock Band 4 and it seems even more unlikely now with the removal of these songs.

Along with the video (featured below), Housemarque put up a post on the European PlayStation Blog detailing the weapon upgrade system in Alienation, which is its "metagame." Much of that game seems to entail getting better loot to make numbers go up, but it also sounds like the developer wants players to put some thought into the guns they use and develop one that best fits the way they run and gun. Essentially, players will be able to loot guns and cores. The cores come in four different flavors, and each core can be upgraded five times to unlock new effects. Mix and match the cores to produce a gun that does exactly what you want a gun to do, like shoot lightning or make a bunch of explosions.

Previously, "Free Play" mode would allow players to take on a randomized series of floors with a bounty at the end. The new reworking shakes up all of that randomization even more and dividing the action up into three blocks, each one more difficult than the last. Rather than a shop, health station, and upgrade station at the end of each floor, those elements are scattered about. Some floors may have three health stations, but no upgrade stations or shops. Some may pit you against minibosses and elite enemies. The array of enemies you can face and their combinations have been mixed up, as well, leaving the whole affair feeling like some random adventure you're undertaking. Should you fail at any point, you'll have to start all over but should you succeed you'll earn a new character skin, an achievement, and a bunch of credits.

Soldak Entertainment has been making games as an independent studio for the past 12 years. A hallmark of many of the titles they have produced has been the depth in their mechanics, from taking on quests to save a village to managing diplomatic relations all while set within the trappings of an action-RPG. We spoke with lead developer and founder S...

As a way of saying "our bad," developer Massive Entertainment announced that logging into The Division this weekend will net you 150 Phoenix Credits for free. If you're unfamiliar with the currency, this those credits are used at the special gear vendor within the main Base of Operations to purchase high-end gear and blueprints. As you normally earn only 10 credits for completing a daily mission, and most stuff within the store is at least 70 credits, that will go a little way towards getting you closer to having that gear score of 160 that's needed to access the "Falcon Lost" Incursion event.
