Thunder, Nemato & Doom Coming Soon To Drox Operative
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Soldak Entertainment has revealed information about three new monsters from the upcoming Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients expansion for its starship action RPG. The Thunder, Nemato, and Doom will all join the list of monsters players will encounter in the game.

Doom:

There isn't much known about Doom, because the Legion use them as planet killers. The little that is known is that they are rare, robust, and their slow missiles are very powerful and hard to destroy.

Special Abilities: Doom Missile

More information about the expansion and the new monsters can be found at the links below.

    Help Create A Legendary Item For Diablo III: Reaper Of Souls
    6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

    Blizzard Entertainment has unveiled plans to include fans in the process of item creation in Diablo III, allowing them to participate in the creation of a legendary item to be found in the upcoming Reaper of Souls expansion. Reaper of Souls will challenge players to defeat Malthael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom, who seeks to seize control of the Black Soulstone.

    Over the next few months, we'll take you through the all the different design stages behind bringing a single Legendary item to life, from concept to creation to iteration, all the way through animation and implementation. We'll chat with each developer involved and share progress updates along the way, giving you a unique behind-the-scenes look at what goes into making a Legendary item that looks epic, feels epic, and fits within the larger network of hero skills, monster tuning, and overall game balance.

    We'll also be involving you, our awesome community, in various parts of the design process. Leading up to release of Reaper of Souls, you'll have the opportunity to not only weigh in, but actually help guide development on a Legendary item that will be implemented and playable. We'll be holding global community votes, hosting podcasts, soliciting ideas, and even running a contest or two to ensure that this is truly a worldwide, player-driven initiative.

    The result? We hope this activity will help give players a better understanding of everything that goes into item design, as well as wind up being something that's both fun and uniquely interactive. Also, once everything is said and done, there will be a Legendary item in the game that you had a hand in making. How cool is that?!

    The Wolf Among Us Episode 1 Reviewed
    6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

    Strategy Informer recently posted a new review of Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us. Based on Bill Willingham's award-winning comic book series FABLES and licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, The Wolf Among Us features a cast of fairy tale characters struggling to survive in the dangerous Fabletown.

    Gameplay-wise it should come as no shock that it’s hugely similar to The Walking Dead. Choice and consequence-based storytelling, quicktime event-based action sequences, and occasionally the odd small area to roam around in looking at things. While on the outside it seems that there isn’t much gameplay outside of a choose-your-own-adventure, there’s a lot more than there initially seems. Every little choice you make changes conversations, people’s attitudes towards you, whether you get out of a situation cleanly or messily (or not at all), even to the extent of characters living or dying or the story completely changing depending on whether you went left or right. Telltale pulled this off superbly in The Walking Dead, always making the player feel responsible for their own story, and in this first episode The Wolf Among Us does it just as amazingly well.

    In fact it does it better here too, for two reasons. Firstly, The Walking Dead occasionally brought in proper adventure game-style puzzle sections now and again, which worked but slowed the pace and regularly felt forced. The Wolf Among Us ditches them in favour of “investigations”. Bigby’s a detective after all, and whenever he’s called out and allowed to explore there’s usually a crime to uncover. For example after being called round to Mr Toad’s apartment it’s clear that something happened he’s trying to cover up – you then have to explore his apartment, find evidence and catch him out in a lie. It’s a lot more fun and fits more naturally into the plot than Walking Dead’s puzzle areas.
