Soma and Amnesia Devs Created an ARG to Tease New Game
Other / 24. 1. 2020

Frictional Games, the developer behind terrifying games like Soma and Amnesia: The Dark Descent, is teasing its next game. And now the studio kicked off an ARG to begin creeping players out before an official game reveal. An ARG, or Alternate Reality Game, can be considered a treasure hunt of sorts where internet detectives can follow clues that might lead to some kind of bigger reveal or secret. Fans have already discovered two mysterious YouTube videos that may reveal some things about Frictional Games’ next project. [widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=25-scariest-games-of-this-generation&captions=true”] As previously reported, Frictional Games recently updated its website to host an animated image of some kind of pulsating white circle. But also on the website is a mysterious eyeball icon under Frictional’s “Follow us” panel which includes links to the company’s social media accounts. The eyeball icon doesn’t lead anywhere, but hovering over it reveals a partial URL that can be copy and pasted to YouTube. The result is this mysterious video titled “Box 52, Tape 16.” The video only shows some rocks recorded on an old video recorder. But the video has a close up on one rock with a mysterious eye symbol drawn on it. The video description…

Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind Review – A Series Of Letdowns
Other / 24. 1. 2020

Publisher: Square Enix Developer: Square Enix Release: January 23, 2020 (PlayStation 4), February 25, 2020 (Xbox One) Reviewed on: PlayStation 4 Also on: Xbox One Kingdom Hearts fans are used to crazy plot twists and cliffhangers that leave them with more questions than answers. The core Kingdom Hearts III experience finally provided resolution to hanging threads, but the Re Mind DLC muddied those waters and made me feel toyed with. Re Mind was an opportunity for Square Enix to provide additional context and shore up the story’s weaknesses. Instead, this add-on feels more like a director’s cut, with only a few new scenes and tweaks to battles. It offers flashes of worthwhile content, but Re Mind demands too much of players to see it. Re Mind takes you back to the Keyblade Graveyard sequence – the start of the base game’s final stretch. Sora travels back in time to search for Kairi, hoping to alter the outcome of events. However, to do so in this DLC, he sacrifices his corporeal form. I don’t want to spoil anything, but the overall story is incomprehensible and outlandish. Expect drawn-out explanations for all the hearts and vessels, more time-travel talk, and unresolved beats…

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Review – Flawed But Still Enthralling
Other / 24. 1. 2020

Publisher: Bandai Namco Developer: CyberConnect2 Release: January 17, 2020 Reviewed on: PlayStation 4 Also on: Xbox One, PC Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot frequently powers up to Super Saiyan levels to deliver awe-inspiring battles between godly beings who can topple mountains with atomic blasts and swing fiery fists to knock each other into the stratosphere. However, when the fight is over and one of the warriors is sent to the afterlife, Kakarot struggles to find a pulse within its sprawling open worlds. Holding true to the 100-plus Dragon Ball Z television episodes it’s based on, Kakarot is an uneven experience with explosive highs and cratering lows. Amid the ups and downs, it delivers enough charm and hard-hitting moments to be enjoyable for a lengthy 40-hour playthrough. Some of the content feels like filler, but I was thoroughly entertained by the battles and retelling of the wild Dragon Ball Z story. Click here to watch embedded media No footage from the animated show is used, and we instead see Goku and his family’s life unfold through beautifully animated in-engine footage for the dramatic moments, and animation-free conversations for the relationship building and mundane story beats. Most of the voice cast from the…

Co-op coming-of-age adventure Knights and Bikes is heading to Switch next month
Other / 24. 1. 2020

Knights and Bikes, developer Foam Sword’s “bike-riding, friendship-building, frisbee-throwing, goose-petting, high-fiving, treasure-hunting, coming-of-age adventure”, is donning helmet and peddling onto Switch next month, on 6th February. Knights and Bikes, which is published by Psychonauts studio Double Fine, was well-received when it launched on PlayStation 4 and PC last August. And now Switch owners have the opportunity to saddle up, playing as friends Demelza and Nessa (either alone or with a co-op buddy) as they explore their ancient island home with pet goose Captain Honkers in tow. What follows is a story-driven adventure encompassing bike-riding, exploration, treasure-hunting, environmental puzzling, enjoyable chaotic combat, and more – often taking advantage of each friend’s unique abilities, which can be combined for even greater success.

Mixing And Matching With The Funkoverse Strategy Game
Other / 24. 1. 2020

Who would win in a fight between Rick & Morty and the Golden Girls? How might Batman and his gadgets confront a wand-wielding Harry Potter? If the very concept of those match-ups has you laughing, you’ve begun to grasp why the new Funkoverse board game seems to hit so many of the right marks. Funko Pops have been a dominating force in the collectible market for some years now; a big part of the joy is finding characters from disparate fictions, and seeing them displayed in a shared (and usually adorable) visual style. Funkoverse extends that same conceit into the tabletop gaming world, with a smartly built tactical skirmish game that’s incredibly easy to pick up and play, but carries enough unique character powers and customization to bring it out onto the table again and again. Pick up any of the Funkoverse packs to start your collection, with characters drawn from varied properties like Batman and Harry Potter, or upcoming releases like Jurassic Park and Aggretsuko. The whole idea is that any given game pack can be played by itself, or combined with others as you grow your collection. Whether you snag one of the two- or four-character packs, you…
