Ubisoft Touts Player Diversity, New Map For Ghost Recon Phantoms

In case you missed it, Ghost Recon Phantoms was recently released to PC and Steam. The free-to-play multiplayer take on the tactical multiplayer of the Ghost Recon series, and effectively a gigantic re-do of Ghost Recon Online, has been rather successful for Ubisoft, becoming the third highest played free-to-play title on Steam. The game is actually quite a lot of good fun, and definitely worth a look if you’re into the series or in need of a tactical multiplayer fix. Following up on that, Ubisoft [...]

Nientonsoh Steps Down from CLG, Possible Lane Swaps Being Discussed

Right when Counter Logic Gaming looked to be the most cohesive unit they’ve been in quite a while, Nientonsoh (Nien for short) announced that he would be stepping down from the CLG roster. In an interview with Travis Gafford of OnGamers, Nien cited several reasons for his departure. Overall, he felt that he was underperforming relative to the other players on his team and that his confidence was lacking.

Star Citizen Gameplay Footage, Now in HD!

I’ve been following the development of Star Citizen for a while now. Last I’d checked, the entirely crowdfunded PC space-sim had raised around $40 million. In a little over a month, another $2 million has been contributed to the ambitious project. But what’s even more exciting is the recent gameplay footage. Chris Roberts and his team (Roberts Space Industries) were at PAX East a few weeks ago to reveal the game’s dogfighting module. And holy shit is it gorgeous. In [...]

REalM is an Indie Horror Game And First Game On The Square Enix Collective

I’m of the mind that fear isn’t based off of any pre-determined trigger. Sure, clowns are universally scary, but nightmares are all deeply personal, and there is a special curiosity with getting close to that which terrifies you most. Those were just thoughts in my head as I was looking at REalM, an indie horror platformer from developers Arbor Sheep and Authentic Illusions. You see, graphics are all fine and well, but the games that interest me the most are [...]

Omocat Launches Omori Kickstarter

One of my favorite artist, Omocat, has been lining up a Kickstarter campaign for her game for quite some time. Today, on Twitter, the Kickstarter for Omori has been posted. While the campaign video reveals a surreal music video showcasing the game and story elements, the summary itself reads something like a cross between cult favorite titles Yume Nikki and Earthbound while music is handled by indie Chip rock band Slime Girls (Who I saw live last year open for Anamanguchi). [...]

Nate Wells, Lead Artist for Last of Us, Leaves Naughty Dog for Giant Sparrow

Seems like there’s more job hopping around the video game industry these days than a something something frog analogy. That lackluster metaphor’s going to have to cut it for now, because Nate Wells, lead artist for The Last of Us, has left Naughty Dog and joined Giant Sparrow as an art director. This information comes via Nate Wells’s twitter profile, updated with his new title. Wells’s credentials include art for Bioshock, System Shock 2, and games of the Thief series. He’s also voice acted for a [...]

With the support of the Steam community, Broadsword Games is hoping to bring Ultima and DAoC to new audiences.
