Two Worlds II Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

The Gamers Paradise recently published a new review of Two Worlds II, the upcoming fantasy RPG from TopWare Interactive and Reality Pump. The game will send players to the unexplored land of Eastern Antaloor and will feature detailed graphics, an active combat system, and a complex storyline. TGP gave the game a score of 9 out of 10.

From the review:

The first thing that you will notice with Two Worlds 2 is how stunningly beautiful it all looks. At first when you start up there isn’t much time to sit back and really enjoy the environments since it’s mainly a tutorial where you go from a to b and learn the ropes. But as soon as you do your first teleport, the beautiful world in Two Worlds 2 is yours to explore, and trust me; it will keep you entertained for quite some time. The share size of the maps is incredible. The world lives and breeds as you walk into deep jungles, forests or cities. You also encounter different characters both friendly and lets called the others, not-so-friendly. The beautiful thing with this game is the share size of it all, and share size is a good thing as long as you have something to transport you from point a to point b, and luckily Two Worlds 2 comes equipped with both teleports and horses for you to use.

The music is all set beautifully, fits perfectly to what’s going on and it flows just as perfect with the stunning backgrounds. Encounter enemies however and the music drastically changes to set the tone for battle.

Din's Curse: Demon War Expansion Announced
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Soldak Entertainment has announced the upcoming release of Din's Curse: Demon War, the first expansion for the unique action RPG Din's Curse. Din's Curse is a single player and co-op multiplayer action RPG for Mac and Windows PCs with 141 class combinations (196 with the expansion), an infinite number of dynamically generated towns, real consequences, and a dynamic, evolving world.

The demons of Aleria are furious! After the 4th Great War and necromancer Ciglio's death, the undead horde has been causing utter chaos, attacking everything that moves... even demons. Demonkind were quite happy when Serina, a human city, was overrun, but that was before thousands of human zombies poured into Kraval, slaughtering the huge demon city. Thus began the Demon War. Demons of all kinds are fighting back. They're hunting down and killing any undead they find. Oh, and they blame the humans for this entire mess. For spite, they razed Serina to the ground even though it was already deserted.

As a servant of the mighty Din, it's your responsibility to safeguard humans from danger. This was a hard task before. Do you have what it takes to save humankind from the Demon War?
Din's Curse: Demon War is scheduled to be released in the 4th quarter of 2010, but will be released "when its done." For more information about Din's Curse head over to the link below.
