The Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor ARPG Is Very Explodey

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr, the action RPG from the folk behind the Van Helsing hacker-slashers, has been quiet for the best part of a year, presumably because the horrifying punctuation of its title caused a directory error which rendered all its files inaccessible. The heretic-burning Diablolike just broke cover anew, offering us decent insight into what, yes, looks very much like an action-RPG in…

The Incredible ARGs Of Victor Vran Helsing

One morning in mid-February, John demanded that I point him in the direction of a "good ARPG". I briefly considered mocking up a new title page for DOTA 2, convinced that the in-game graphics were ARPGish enough to fool him, but I didn't go through with it. While the idea of John stumbling through a MOBA match is enormously entertaining, I'm not a very good…

Humble Jumbo Bundle 2 Is Great: GalCiv 2, CK2, Terraria…

Humble Bundle are always going to be of varying quality - sometimes including only a single quality game with some bonuses, sometimes of no interest whatsoever - but the latest, titled Jumbo Bundle 2, is quite the bargain. For the low, low price of whatever-the-hell-you'd-like you'll get space 4X Galactic Civilizations II with its expansions, side-scrolling undead violence-applier Deadlight and isometric action RPG The Incredible…

Peerless Vampire Killers: Van Helsing II

The latest trailer for The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing II plays out like an advertisement for a monster hunting seminar. An encouraging pitchman takes budding slayers through their development options, suggesting that some might want to try out a spot of thaumaturgy while ensuring that their pet chimera is cleverly utilised and well-fed. The benefits of companionship are outlined, as are new crafting and…

The Inevitable Sequelling Of Van Helsing

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing was an action RPG which prompted John to use such breathless superlatives as "pleasant" and "absorbing", so I assume you're all pre-ordering its sequel immediately. Said sequel is out next month, and while it broadly looks like another sup from the same clicky-deathfest-with-tower-defence-bits cup, it promises more character classes, weapons and whatnot, as well as the slightly discomfiting claim…

Science Invades The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing

I was surprised by The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing. Yet another action RPG, but one that actually did something original - it worked in some tower defence elements. Now, I'm the first person to roll my eyes out of my head, over the desk, and out of the window on seeing the words "tower defence elements", but impressively they made sense here, felt like…

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing review

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing wasn't what I was expecting. And managed to continue to not be what I was expecting the further I progressed. Having somehow gained the impression (maybe imagined?) that it would be more of a straight RPG, I was surprised to find myself playing an action-RPG, very much in the mould of Titan Quest. I was further surprised when it…

Van Helsing’s Adventures Include Ghost Companion

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing may or maybe not actually be incredible, and they are ARPG quests rather than conventional adventures, but there's one thing that we can say for sure: he's going to have a handsome lady-ghost companion named Katarina. What does she want? She wants to make monsters pop into the constituent loots, as you can see in a new video, below.

"This time we're going to talk about Rage. You know the feeling, I suppose." Anyway! Neocore's The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing (Facebook homepage, argh! Read the devblog instead) is looking increasingly alluring for those of us who wish to explode thronging herds of rabid monsters into clouds of loot and gore. The latest trailer - which explains the rage and power-up system - shows…

Hack And Therefore Slash: Van Helsing In The Forest

Neocore's action-splatterer, The Incredible [We'll be the judge of that - RPS] Adventures of Van Helsing, is looking pretty impressive. With four-player co-op and a follower system, it's just as ambitious as other ARPGs out there, but also seems to offer something more, claiming of the follower that you can "Build and develop their hideout and place traps to defend it from waves of terrible…

Feature: NeocoreGames Vs The Vamps

We're being blessed with a swell of action RPGs in the near future, and among their number is the intriguing The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing. From NeocoreGames, they who brought us the King Arthur strategy RPGs, it's a sharp change of direction for the studio, and a return to releasing a game independently. We spoke to them about why they've headed in this direction,…

Monstrous: The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing

Games do rather have a habit of removing subtlety. I'm not claiming that Van Helsing has a great history of cultural appearances, but I'm fairly sure that none of his depictions have previously taken place in a world where there are more werewolves than rats. (I'm not an expert, but was it really the 2004 Hugh Jackman film that saw Van Helsing switch from hunting…

Summoned: The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

The game will be "loosely based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula" and tells a tale in which Van Helsing find himself enlisted by former supernatural foes "to defeat a new scourge terrorizing the ravaged…
