Blackguards 2 Releasing January 20th On PC



Blackguards 2

Daedalic Entertainment’s Blackguards reminded me of an old throwback to a classic turn-based, role-playing strategy game from the mid-1990s. It had a bit of that Betray at Krondor tossed in with the grit and grunge from Baldur’s Gate and Planescape Torment. Well, the sequel to this year’s tactical-RPG is due for launch on January 20th, 2015 for $29.99. Continue reading




Sunset Overdrive Soundtrack Now Available

Sunset Overdrive

One of the few games that have come out for the Xbox One that actually sparked my interest is Sunset Overdrive, the over-the-top, Jet Set Radio-inspired, third-person shooter from Insomniac Games. If you thought the color-vomit palette was intriguing and the kindergarten-recess level of mayhem and chaos was engaging, then you might also take a liking to the game’s newly available soundtrack, which is an eclectic mix of grunge, garage punk, and violent dubstep.

World of Speed

I haven’t heard much about Need For Speed World after the game went full cash shop… and as we all know, as a free-to-play title you never go full cash shop. Slightly Mad Studios appears to be trying their hand at the free-to-play racing genre with their online racing title World of Speed.

#GamerGate: Stricter ISP Terms Sought Regarding Harassment Before Heading To Congress

GamerGate

The issue of online harassment has ratcheted up a few levels since interest groups took notice following “The Fappening” (also known as “Celebgate”) and the consumer revolt called #GamerGate, which surrounds the scandal of journalistic malpractice. Mainstream media has taken #GamerGate and turned it into a topic of harassment, even going as far as to spin the issue away from the corruption currently taking place within the media. Nevertheless, said interest groups have utilized the media’s platform to discuss how to combat online harassment on a multilateral front. Continue reading
