video
A Plague Tale: Innocence by Asobo Studio gets a new story trailer that highlights the game's tale of siblings Amicia and Hugo on the run from the Inquisition and the Black Death. Their story begins in France, during the Hundred Years’ War. The De Rune family is living in relative comfort in its castle,...

The Council review: Broken promises

The Council review
After a promising start, The Council slowly descends into the realm of the mediocre and the ridiculous, before fizzling out completely in the end. I absolutely loved The Council - Episode One: The Mad Ones. It was a refreshing take on the narrative adventure genre that held so much promise. In my review, I...

Call of Cthulhu review: A horror tale crafted with love

Call of Cthulhu review: Strange cults
Call of Cthulhu is a deeply unsettling investigation that perfectly captures the spirit of the source material and the pen-and-paper RPG. It’s no secret horror fans love a good Lovecraftian story. It’s also not much of a secret that video games have been trying to capitalize on that love far too many times, often unsuccessfully. The latest game to channel the...

Call of Cthulhu release date is set for the end of October, pre-orders now available

Call of Cthulhu release date
We've been waiting for Call of Cthulhu for over three years. We were pretty intrigued by it when we learned it was officially connected to Chaosium’s pen and paper RPG. Then we saw it at Gamescom 2017 and got really excited. Now, publisher Focus Home Interactive announced the final release date (we hope) for this insane narrative RPG game. You'll be able...

Call of Cthulhu, GreedFall, A Plague Tale: Innocence all have new E3 2018 trailers

Focus Home Interactive didn't hold a fancy E3 2018 press conference, but that does not mean they don't have a line-up of great games to show us at the convention. Three of those games are Cyanide Studio's chilling Call of Cthulhu, the intriguing Greedfall by Spiders, and the stress-inducing A Plague Tale: Innocence developed by Asobo Studio. I would have given each...

Vampyr review: I’m a doctor, not a fighter

Vampyr review
Vampyr tells a compelling story in an intriguing world, but the frustrating and frankly unnecessary combat sucks the life out of it. A vampire doctor sounds like either a terrible career choice or a character from a cheesy Korean drama. But it is also the defining characteristic of the main protagonist of Vampyr, the new title from Life is Strange...

Vampyr story trailer sheds light on the journey of a newborn vampire

Vampyr story trailer
Vampyr story trailer that tells more about the grim situation protagonist Dr. Jonathan Reid finds himself in when he wakes up as a vampire in the disease-ridden streets of 1918 London. This isn't the first story trailer developer Dontnod Entertainment released for the game. However, it is the first one that actually tells us something coherent about Vampyr's story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-wsrKufDKU If we ignore...

The Council Episode 1: The Mad Ones review: True detective

The Council review - the guests
The Council Episode 1: The Mad Ones is the first episode of what is sure to be a milestone in the episodic narrative adventure game genre. The Council uses the formula most of us associate with Telltale Games - a story the unfolds over multiple episodes with plenty of choices along the way - and takes it one step further. How?...

The game drops you and 99 more players in the radiation-ravaged wasteland that was once Chernobyl.

The Council is an episodic game full of intrigue and grotesque characters

The Council art
The Council invites you to the most grotesque-looking dinner party in gaming history. It is a new episodic adventure game that boasts a "fresh new take" on the genre. In this game, you "make hard-hitting decisions, develop an array of skills, and directly impact how the story unfolds." Doesn't sound so fresh, now that I think of it. Cynicism aside, The...
