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...
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
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 developer...
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 review - the guests
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? By adding RPG elements...
Fear the Wolves
Do you need more nuclear radiation and deadly mutation in your Battle Royale games? Fear the Wolves says you do. The game drops you and 99 more players in the radiation-ravaged wasteland that was once Chernobyl. You'll face off against other players, dynamic weather, and deadly anomalies to secure your place as the last person standing. Players will endure the harsh environments of...
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...
Vamypr delayed
If you're eager to stalk the shadows of turn-of-the-century London as a morally conflicted vampire, you'll have to wait a little bit longer. Developer Dontnod Entertainment just announced Vampyr has been delayed to spring 2018. Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DontNod Entertainment, had this to say: "Delaying the release of a project you hold dear is always a tough decision. However, we...
Call of Cthulhu captures the spirit of Choasium's pen-and-paper RPG, and brings it to your PC and consoles. At least that was the impression I walked away with after seeing the game in action at Gamescom 2017. The live demo I saw behind closed doors took place during the second chapter of the game. Protagonist Edward Pierce just arrived at Darkwater Island,...
The Surge review
If you watch enough movies and play enough games, you've probably heard someone exclaim “you can have my weapon when you pry it from my cold, dead hands”. Well, The Surge is the kind of game that obliges gladly. In fact, not only will you be taking weapons from the cold, dead hands of your enemies - you’ll be...
