Blackguards 2 Gets Second Overview Video from Daedalic Entertainment

Blackguards 2 RealGamerNewz Developer Diary Daedalic Entertainment

Blackguards 2 is the sequel to Blackguards, a turn-based strategy role playing game (loving referred to as SRPG by some of the sub-genre’s longest running fans). As you may recall, our Blackguards Review contained mostly praise for the game, which comes out of a studio that takes a lot of pride in their work, but we also noted many areas of improvement we wanted to see addressed. Daedalic Entertainment released Video Overview #1 for the upcoming sequel a couple of weeks ago opening the dialogue with gamers as to what is changed in the new title. Today we get the second edition of that which talks about the monsters found in the new game while showing off some gameplay as well. Developer diaries are often the best way to gain the vision behind a franchise or even an individual game mechanic. If you’re any amount of interested in SRPG games or Blackguards 2 itself, we highly recommend hearing what the team behind the series has to say about its latest incarnation.

Hellblade’s Newest Dev Diary Focuses on the Prototyping Phase

hellblade-2

The eighth developer Diary for Ninja Theory’s Hellblade was released today. This new video, offers fans a look into the prototyping phase in the title’s development. We see how the game’s environment comes to fruition, their approach to designing its enemies and combat system. It is all very impressive considering the size of their staff and the fact that they are not working with a huge budget.

Internal testing has begun, once that phase has ended some fans will have the opportunity to beta test the game. Ninja Theory is feels it is an exciting way (I agree) for gamers to assist them with Hellblade’s development.

 

In cased you missed it the studio recently revealed that their title will also be making its way to PC. This won’t be launching at a later date, as it will release alongside the PS4 version. Whenever that my be.

“We’re excited to be bringing Hellblade to PC gamers and welcoming them into the Hellblade development journey. PC offers us fantastic opportunities to engage players in playtesting, usability testing and modding. We plan on grasping these opportunities with both hands to make Hellblade as good as it possibly can be for our fans.” says Dominic Matthews Product Development Ninja

Crimsonland PS4 Review

Crimsonland Review

Crimsonland is another one of those amazingly fun, top-down survival shooter titles. It has a quest mode serving up 6 chapters across 3 difficulties, and each chapter has around 10 stages. There are also multiple interpretations of Survival mode including one that challenges players to win with no weapons at all as well as another in which each weapon only has one clip and spawns in random places on the map. Players can compete in online leader-boards across all stages of the game.

The enemies display good A.I. that doesn’t always just run towards you and instead sometimes takes thought out paths with strategic elements to them. Players have to grab power-ups (called Perks in the game) fast and have to decide rapidly in the moment which power-ups are most important as you often cant always get to every one of them. Some weapons are powerful but harder to use than others and many only play to a particular play-style meaning you must also choose wisely which weapons you pick up. Strangely, enemies seem to sometimes destroy power-ups before you get a chance to grab them but other times can walk right over them. This means they didn’t try to take a bite of it. One of the many, many perks available allows players to be the immune carrier of a virus that enemies will become infected with if they take a bite of you.

Often times the challenge in each level was very well thought out and relates to not just the mass amount of enemies you face but also the power-ups and weapons given to you with which to strategically defeat them. Crimsonland proves easy to get into but becomes difficult and before you know it enemies are multiplying, popping up invisible, spawning new hives, rapidly running enemies, and even laser blasting enemies that can produce a bullet hell situation causing players to tread carefully.

Crimsonland PS4 Review

Players will have to prioritize which enemies give them the most trouble according to their play-style and attempt to take those out first. Some of the most powerful weapons are spread weapons that require good aim since they spread very loosely over long distances. Worse still, the most viscous enemies run fast, and the best weapons often take a long amount of time to reload. For example, the plasma shotgun is one such weapon that I found to be a favorite due to its high damage and ability to take out hordes at once, but those shots had to be aimed well for quickly running enemies and couldn’t be wasted on easy to down enemies since the reload wait was a bit dangerous to toy with.

I’m not sure if this can become a problem or not for some players but enemies can walk off-screen. Killing them off-screen may or may not result in power-ups being dropped where the player can’t reach them. Luckily the game is very balanced overall so this is more of an expert note for those seeking to maximize their skills in the various survival modes offered.

There’s a great amount of weapons in the game that you unlock as you play through quest mode stages. Each time you start most stages though, you have to begin with the pistol again and work your way up based on what pops up. perks are also unlocked as you go and picked up randomly in the same manner. Other stages will be specifically designed for a specific weapon’s use and serve as a training and / or challenge for the player to master that weapon. Of course, this is easily avoided by grabbing something else that falls from enemies, but the game is not always easier to complete that way.

Crimsonland PS4 Review - RealGamerNewz

Sometimes enemies spawn from hives, a la Gauntlet style, and of course you’ll have a never ending amount of them until you destroy the hive. 4 player local co op is sweet but the absence of online co op in this day and age is pretty upsetting. It’s difficult to say how much this actually takes away from the title though, since it’s so badass – but a lot of people won’t even give it a chance after hearing this due to the inherent value proposition that’s missing without an online mode. Power-up perks include speed, nuking the screen, freezing enemies, setting off shots in all directions, slow motion, uranium filled bullets, and a ton more. Seriously, there’s tons of perks and a lot of them are very creative. The graphics play a major role in making this game feel very solid. paired with simple controls and reliable hit detection, there’s nothing to really complain about here. Sound design leaves nothing to complain about, and I take that as a huge plus because top-down shooters like this don’t usually have polished sound effects like Crimsonland does.

Final Verdict:

This is one of the more well polished indie games that obviously has been given a lot of play-testing and thought to its design. tons of fun, easy to jump in as well as come back to and yet still challenges you. It’s an excellent top-down shooter with excellent quality to it and a lot of thought put into it. Particular aspects that stand out include level design, fun factor, and replay value. Once Quest Mode is defeated in all difficulties (which will take you a good chunk of sessions), the endless survival modes are kept fresh by all of the perks and weapons you’ve unlocked. The only real down point of this game is that it doesn’t have online multiplayer, and even though it does have local co-op, that just feels like a slap in the face. But it’s a slap in the face you’ll gladly take once you discover how awesome this game is!

Watch the new ‘Narration and Revolution’ Trailer for ‘The Order: 1886’

the-order-1886

Sony recently released a new video for Ready At Dawn’s ‘The Order: 1886’.

Titled ‘Narration and Revolution’ the video features the studio’s Game Director Dana Jan who briefly discusses the reason for the game’s setting being in an alternate history London. Jan also talks of Sony’s newest console, and how working on the platform allowed them to cross the boundaries of believable characters. Thanks to complicated motion capture technology at the team’s disposal, Ready At Dawn hopes to deliver an experience where players will no longer feel like they are playing a game. They plan on accomplishing this by blurring the line between gameplay and cinematic cutscenes; the same character models and detail featured in the cutscenes will be present when engaging in firefights, running etc. Based on the footage so far the developer seems to be on the right track.

Looks more like a scene from a movie than a video game.

It was recently revealed that The Order would not be making the company’s expected fall 2014 release window. It has been delayed until early 2015, so the developer could spend more time polishing it up to deliver the type of game they promised. We can expect to see more of the intriguing new IP in less than two weeks at this year’s E3.
