Always Remember Me Dating Sim Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 10 comments

Winter Wolves, developer of several dating sims and roleplaying games, has announced the release of Always Remember Me, a new otome life/dating simulation game. The game's story follows Amarantha Fitch, who must juggle the demands of her job and her personal life. The game features 9 different endings and four dateable characters.

The story is about Amarantha Fitch, Amy for her friends, who works part-time in a ice-cream parlor during the summer to pay for her studies. Engaged with Aaron, one day they have a car accident, and Aaron suffers from short-term amnesia. He doesn't remember Amy anymore!

Will you be able to make him remember again? Or perhaps it's time to move on. Maybe Amy will fall in love with someone else?
The game plays like a detailed life simulation game: through a town map you can move to different locations, each one offering several different actions which change based on the time of the day, day of the week and plot status, ensuring a very high replayability!

The game features beautiful manga artwork, classic stats based dating sim, 9 different endings, a relationship system with each of the four dateable characters, and an original soundtrack performed by Cristina Vee and composed by Matt Myers.

Always Remember Me costs $19.99 and requires Mac OS 10.4 or higher, a 1.2 Ghz processor and 512 MB RAM. A demo version of the game is available at the Winter Wolves website.

New Diablo III Facebook Screenshots Available
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment recently revealed another new screenshot and piece of concept art to celebrate the 875,000 Likes milestone on its official Diablo III Facebook page. 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,

Portal 2 Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Elite PC Reviews has posted a new review of Valve's recently released Portal 2 first person action puzzler. The game introduces a new cast of characters to the single player storyline, new puzzle elements, and a two player cooperative mode.

From the review:

The game opens with a scripted sequence to let you get the feel of the players movements. This has become a staple in games nowadays but Valve made this one a little special. Instead of the typical “Jump here” and “Look there” routine Valve has added a comic flair. Once you play the game you will see what I mean. I'm not going to spoil it but it really does set the pace for the rest of your adventure. The game has a simple premise. You are stuck in a seemingly never ending cycle of “testing rooms” where a diabolical computer taunts you to finish each puzzle in a timely manner. You solve these puzzles by using a “portal” gun and hope the next testing room won’t be your last as the computer constantly threatens to kill you. It sounds repetitive but its not. There is a lot more to this game then meets the eye and the plot defiantly thickens as the game progresses.

The “portal system” takes some getting used to. You use two portals to navigate your way though each level. When you make a portal to pass through one is orange and one is blue which is set via your “fire” and “alternate fire” buttons respectively. For example if you place a orange portal 5 stories below your current position. Then place a blue portal directly behind you and jump into the orange portal below it will shoot you out of the blue portal at the momentum you entered the orange portal. Confusing? Like I said it takes some getting used to. However once you do get the hang of it the portal gun becomes an extension of your own ability. By the end of the game I was using the portal system in a second nature fashion. The developers team really has done an excellent job in introducing a new mechanic to first person shooters. I hope other developers follow suit with this great example of innovativeness.
