Amnesia: The Dark Descent Music And Commentary
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Frictional Games has released a new video and developer commentary for the upcoming adventure horror title Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The game is described as a title which will take players on a "thrill-ride through the depths of madness and explore the dark side of human emotions." It follows the tale of a protagonist on the run from a horrifying foe.

Today we posted a new video to our YouTube Channel. Mikko Tarmia takes us on a tour of his studio and talks about the making of the music for Amnesia.

Thanks to the over 2000 pre-orders that we got for Amnesia, we made an ingame commentary system. While playing Amnesia you will have the option to turn on commentaries and listen to over 60 minutes of chitchat about the creation of the game.

With this video we give you a little taste, more will come before the release of Amnesia. Make sure to read the latest blog post from Thomas that talks about the making of the commentary.

Diablo III: New Crafting System Detailed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Blizzard Entertainment has updated the official Diablo III website with an overview of the action RPG's new crafting system. The game will return the players to the world of Sanctuary, once again under threat from demonic powers.

To provide your artisans with the ingredients necessary to perform their work, you'll salvage items, breaking them down into components. You can salvage the majority of loot you find while exploring. Salvaging is an effective way to manage your inventory so that your bags don't fill up, but it's also a means to recycle items you don't want (as opposed to selling them for gold).

The components you'll get from salvaging items are fairly predictable, but there's a small degree of luck involved with each salvage attempt. In general, higher-quality items will provide you with more valuable and rarer salvage than lower-quality items -- but the rarest materials are always found in treasure chests or beside the corpses of your foes.

With your pack full of salvaged components, you can set your artisans to work crafting for you. These crafted items are utterly unique -- with a few exceptions, they won't drop anywhere else -- and, like many rewards in the Diablo series, there's an element of randomness to them.
