Shadowrun Returns Launch Trailer Unveiled
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Harebrained Schemes recently unveiled a launch trailer for the upcoming Shadowrun Returns RPG, scheduled to launch on July 25. The role playing game will return players to the Shadowrun universe which features a mixture of cyberpunk tech and high fantasy magic.

The year is 2054. Magic has returned to the world, awakening powerful creatures of myth and legend. Technology merges with flesh and consciousness. Elves, trolls, orks and dwarves walk among us, while ruthless corporations bleed the world dry. You are a shadowrunner – a mercenary living on the fringes of society, in the shadows of massive corporate arcologies, surviving day-by-day on skill and instinct alone. When the powerful or the desperate need a job done, you get it done… by any means necessary.

The unique cyberpunk-meets-fantasy world of Shadowrun has gained a huge cult following since its creation nearly 25 years ago. Now, creator Jordan Weisman returns to the world of Shadowrun, modernizing this classic game setting as a single player, turn-based tactical RPG..

Check out the trailer and learn more about the game at the links below.

Control Command Escape Reviews Endless Space: Disharmony
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Control Command Escape has posted a new review of Iceberg Interactive's Endless Space: Disharmony. The downloadable content for the 4X space strategy title offers a new race, new units, and the ability to launch land invasions.

From the review:

The “Harmony” race that the DLC provides actually feels different from all of the others, thanks to both the design of the ships and the adaptation of the interface (although here too it feels crowbarred in, rather than designed, with the tax slider replaced with a research/food slider), and the race’s innate loathing of dust requiring you to develop new strategies to accommodate this. Gone is the need to make citizens happy, but gone are also the ability to rush production, hire heroes, and retrofit ships. It many ways, the new race represents a removal of ideas, rather than an addition.

The new fighters and bombers (available to all races) are installed as modules on a ship, and though they make battles more visually interesting, they also add a layer of complexity that seems unnecessary. First off, bombers and fighter can each be used for invasion, ship-to-ship attack (or “balanced”), determined at the point they are added to the ship’s design. Then during the battle, you can set targeting and formation patterns for each of them. In all the battles I fought, it seemed that the effect of these latter choices made little difference; fighters and bombers seem to either be useful or not, with no amount of tweaking upsetting that balance significantly.
