Two Worlds II: Pirates Of The Flying Fortress Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gaming Trend has released a new review of TopWare's Pirates of The Flying Fortress, a new expansion for Two Worlds II. The fantasy RPG add-on takes players into the "gloomy pirate world" and will feature thunder and rain storms, new weapons, impact oriented horse armor, and all new boss encounters.

From the review:

The majority of the gameplay hasn’t really changed, although the addition of horseback combat, such as charging with polearms, is very nice and horse armor means that you can keep your mount alive much longer. In addition to the approximately 10 to 15 hours of play time added to the single-player game, there are four new multiplayer maps, new items and monsters, and tons of areas to explore.

Discussing Dragon Age
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Kitty's Pride has posted a new interview with BioWare's David Gaider and Michael Laidlaw. The developers discussed the new Dragon Age comic, creating memorable characters, and some plans for the inevitable Dragon Age 3.

KP: The big question is when does Dragon Age 3 come out?

DG: There’s been no official announcement of DA 3. It’s been discussed certainly. I can’t confirm or deny anything about Dragon Age 3, long term the release date is less important to me then our general approach which is a couple of big things we want to add in. Exploration coming back, bigger areas and spaces for people to explore. The wonder of going over a hill and going “whoa, what’s that down there”. That’s got to come back. Probably a bigger scope overall, but still heavy focus on characters. My view is that we have a lot more subtle reactivity to the choices your making so as you’re playing the game you always feel like it’s coming back to bite you in the ass.

Diablo III Gameplay Preview Video
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

G4TV has posted a new video showcasing gameplay from Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming action RPG sequel, Diablo III. The game will allow players to revisit the world of Sanctuary where they must once again take up arms against the demonic forces threatening humanity.

Diablo III will pick up the story twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram. Playing as a hero from one of five distinct character classes, players will acquire powerful items, spells, and abilities as they explore new and familiar areas of Sanctuary and battle hordes of demons to safeguard the world from the horrors that have arisen.

Diablo III will feature a custom 3D-graphics engine to render lush indoor and outdoor areas of Sanctuary with a high level of detail and vivid special effects. The game’s physics-enhanced environments will be interactive and destructible, offering traps and obstacles that create added danger for players and monsters alike. These elements, along with a new quest system and random scripted events, will be integrated into the game’s random-level generator, giving Diablo III the ultimate combination of dynamic gameplay and replayability. Cooperative and competitive play will be available online through an upgraded version of Blizzard Entertainment’s renowned online gaming service, Battle.net.
