Wasteland 2 Delayed Until September 19
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

InXile Entertainment has announced it has pushed back the release date for the upcoming Wasteland 2 RPG until September 19. A sequel to the classic post-apocalyptic RPG of the 80's, Wasteland 2 will be a top down, turn-based, tactical RPG that the developers promise will "stay true to its roots."

Welcome back to the Citadel, Rangers! Join the over 70,000 Kickstarter backers and interact with the development team to help shape the ending of an already historic post-apocalyptic story. The Wasteland's hellish landscape has been waiting for you to make your mark… or die trying.

Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to 1988’s Wasteland, the first-ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG and the inspiration behind the Fallout series. Until Wasteland, no other CRPG had ever allowed players to control and command individual party members for tactical purposes or given them the chance to make moral choices that would directly affect the world around them. Wasteland was a pioneer in multi-path problem solving, dripping in choice and consequence and eschewing the typical one-key-per-lock puzzle solving methods of its peers, in favor of putting the power into players’ hands to advance based on their own particular play style.

The Wasteland series impressive and innovative lineage has been preserved at its very core, but modernized for the fans of today with Wasteland 2. Immerse yourself in turn-based tactical combat that will test the very limits of your strategy skills as you fight to survive a desolate world where brute strength alone isn’t enough to save you. Deck out your Ranger squad with the most devastating weaponry this side of the fallout zone and get ready for maximum destruction with the RPG-style character advancement and customization that made the first Wasteland so brutal. Save an ally from certain death or let them perish – the choice is yours, but so are the consequences.

Key Features:

  • One Size Does Not Fit All: Don't feel like finding the key for a door? Why not try a Rocket Launcher! Basically the same thing... right?
  • Enhanced Classic RPG Game Play: Classic RPG game play ideas updated with modern design philosophies.
  • Decision Making... with Consequences: With both short and long term reactivity to the players choices, every decision matters in the outcome of the story.
  • Huge & Customizable: Dozens of hours of game. Hundreds of characters. Thousands of variations on your Rangers' appearance. Over 150 weapons. Dozens of skills. Even the UI can be customized.
Mac Minimum Requirements:
  • OS: Mac OSX 10.5 or higher
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 2.4 GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 300 Series or Radeon equivalent
  • Hard Drive: 30 GB available space
Mac Recommended Requirements:
  • OS: Mac OSX 10.5 or higher
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 2.66 GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 400 Series or Radeon equivalent
  • Hard Drive: 30 GB available space

Control Command Escape Reviews Heroes & Legends
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Control Command Escape has posted a new review of the recently released Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar from Phoenix Online Publishing. The game blends combat and strategy elements, giving players the chance to assemble a party of fantasy heroes against waves of enemies in both story driven and randomly generated battles.

Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar is a very simple game. I'm completely fine with that. Sometimes you just want a bit of mindless fun, a bit of click-click-clicking to pass an hour or two. Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar could certainly be that game. You take control of three typical fantasy heroes, and send them off to defeat wave after wave of fantasy evil-doers in fast, decision-driven battles, collecting ever-more powerful items, leveling up, and learning ever-more powerful skills. To mix things up a bit, there's a map where you can pick from different battles, and there's also a crafting system, where you can salvage items for resources that can be used to create yet more items to help you turn the tide of battle. To top it all off, Heroes & Legends has a bright, cartoony visual style and as a result, is very pleasant to look at.
