Drox Operative: Invasion Of The Ancients Scavenger Revealed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Soldak Entertainment has revealed information about a new race from the upcoming Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients expansion for its starship action RPG. The Scavenger race makes use of the ship debris left over after interstellar battles, and is both despised and feared.
Scheduled for a release in the third quarter of this year, Invasion of the Ancients will focus on a galactic invasion by the older races. Players will have to defend both the Drox Operative Guild and the younger races in the galaxy from the sinister threat.
A mixer of vehicle components, Scavengers adapted both mechanical and biological tech as solutions for advancement. Natural evolution led to incorporating any leftover debris after battles, including other races' ship corpses and technological abilities. Profiting from the demise of others was business as usual, but other races thought it an abhorrent practice and despised the Scavengers for it. The Scavengers enjoy a period of great advancement and wealth during wartime, which explains many other races' fear and hesitancy to engage this voracious enemy.More information about the expansion and the new race can be found at the links below.

IMG Reviews Don't Starve
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments
Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Klei Entertainment's Don't Starve. The wilderness survival game places players in the role of a scientist trapped in a mysterious wilderness world full of strange creatures, dangers, and surprises.
Here's an excerpt:
You quickly learn to carefully divide your daytime between gathering (food as well as materials), and exploring. I found it useful to build a base camp with a fire pit, a place to store gathered materials and my Science Machines. Choose a location well, the resources near your base camp will make survival easier. You might also start a garden or build a chest to store things in. I found it a good idea to be near an area with trees for firewood, rabbits for meat, and buffalo for fertilizer. Once you get a food chain established, you can begin some serious exploration.Read more at the link below.

Shadowrun Returns Delayed Until July 25
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Harebrained Schemes recently revealed that it will be delaying the release of the upcoming Shadowrun Returns RPG until July 25. The additional time will allow the developer to fix bugs and add a final polish to the game. The role playing game will return players to the Shadowrun universe which features a mixture of cyberpunk tech and high fantasy magic.
We know we’ve been saying June for some time, but now that we’ve reached this final stage of development, and although our Kickstarter funding was spent some time ago, we've decided to invest additional time in bugfixing and polishing the game. That means a longer crunch period for a tired team, but everyone agrees that it’s worth it.Read more at the link below and check out a collection of new screenshots.
Shadowrun Returns Delay
One of the most common pieces of Backer feedback we've received over the past year is that we should take the time we need to ship this game. We really appreciate that, and we know we've thanked you already about a hundred times already, but we're doing it again because we mean it. Thanks.
You gifted us with your trust as well as your funding and we take that responsibility very seriously. You gave us the opportunity to contribute to something bigger than ourselves and something we think is worth all the time, sacrifice, and hard work. Soon, we’ll give it all back to you.

Transistor Action RPG Coming To Macs
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments
Supergiant Games recently revealed its upcoming Transistor action RPG will be making its way to Macs. Planned for initial release early next year on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, the game is a sci-fi themed experience which will give players the chance to "wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as they fight through a stunning futuristic city."
One of the most common questions we get about our next game is, which platforms is it coming to? Today we’re excited to have a specific answer for you at last: When Transistor is released sometime early next year, it will be available day one for PlayStation 4, and for PC on Steam. We plan to bring the game to Linux and Mac afterwards, and haven’t ruled anything out beyond that.Click over to the links below to learn more about the game.
It’s no coincidence we’re making this announcement now during the week of the big Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles. Sony gave us the opportunity to show our game in their booth this week, where we’ll be on hand with an early playable build. After an amazing PAX East, it’s going to be great letting a whole new slew of players try the game at E3 — but back to the topic at hand!
Even before we announced Transistor earlier this year, we’d been giving a lot of thought to which platform or platforms would make the best home for the game. It’s a big decision that can influence aspects of the game’s design and can ultimately have a lot to do with its overall success. By focusing on the PlayStation 4 and PC as our launch platforms, we think we’ll be able to reach many of our existing fans right from the start, while letting us focus on delivering the best game possible at launch.
You may know that our first game, Bastion, is available for more than six different platforms at this point. But it started on just one. We were still working on new versions of Bastion more than a year after the initial launch on Xbox LIVE Arcade. The main reason Bastion ended up in so many places, of course, is because a lot of people liked the game. And the main reason a lot of people liked it is because we were able to create the game we wanted to make in the first place, by not spreading our focus too thin and making sure Bastion ran great on XBLA, then on Steam, and so on. So, in short: Our strategy of focusing on a console/PC launch worked well on Bastion so we’re doing it again on Transistor.
