The Sun Has Got His Moneyhat On: Grim Dawn Funded

Forget the rest of the loot-gathering crowd for a moment and concentrate your senses on the other ARPG. The one that isn't a sequel but does see much-loved developers working in a genre where they have excelled in the past, the one with non-linear story progression and different factions to side with. Yes, it's this one, Grim Dawn from the designers of Titan Quest. Although…

Shadows Fall On The Path Of Exile

There's no reason in the world that anyone reading this would know how much I love dual wielding but let it be known that I've just finished eating a bowl of cereal, a spoon in each hand, and immediately afterwards I gripped brushes akimbo as I cleansed my mouth-rocks. Last night was mostly about dual wielding as well, as I prepared myself to share some…

Realms Of Ancient War Is An ARPG, And That’s Okay

REALMS OF ANCIENT WAR! It's a title that should be shouted, I believe. It's also a title that needs some tidying up, since we're apparently supposed to call it "R.A.W. - Realms of Ancient War". No. No I absolutely won't do that. Your title doesn't get to be an acronym and the expansion of that acronym. That's not how titles work. And you certainly don't…

Here Comes The Sun: Grim Dawn Kickstarter

I wasn't sure what the polite level of enthusiasm for action-RPG Grim Dawn was but as it turns out it's perfectly acceptable to perform a small dance while saying "it appears to combine the best of the developers previous game, Titan Quest, with a pleasingly unpleasant new world to discover and factions with which to side and war". Alternatively, just holler wildly and punch the…

Loot Drop: Path Of Exile Beta Open All Weekend

In the weekend family get-together of the fantasy RPGs, Uncle Diablo is hanging around, talking to his niece Torchlight about her new tattoos. She's just asked where Path Of Exile is. "He's suffering from stress and couldn't make it", said Uncy D. Abstractly, of course: what's actually happening is that Path of Exile, Grinding Gears' isometric online action-RPG is actually holding a stress test this…

Interview: BeerDeer Games On Nyrthos

Whenever my eye spies a new hack-n-slash dungeon crawler, it immediately commands my hands to contact the developers. Having seen Nyrthos the very same happened, and so it is I got in touch with developer BeerDeer Games' Martin Jelinek. Planned to be an online, somewhat cooperative Action RPG, it's intriguingly being developed to be playable on both PC and smartphone - as in, you should…

Extra Rations: The Baconing DLC And Sale

The Baconing was a load of old nonsense, which suits me just fine. I like nonsense. The first time I realised words were among my favourite things I was but a young pup reading a giant Edward Lear tome and being struck about the face by seemingly infinite invention. But Edward Lear never included any "Bad Mothas" in his work as far as I remember…

Impressions: Path Of Exile Beta

The entire internet has filled up with discussions, videos and arguments about the Diablo III beta this week. Just to even things out, I’m reserving this little corner to talk about a different line of hacking and looting RPG though. Path of Exile, which will be free to play at launch, is also in a playable beta state at the moment and I’ve been walking…

Playing For Keeps: Dungeon Defenders

Diablo 3 wasn’t quite as shiny and pony-strewn as some people were expecting, so it’s making this place seem a little grim and gothic at the moment. Time for something incredibly colourful and chaotic. So here are two developer diaries for upcoming 4 player co-op tower defence action RPG Dungeon Defenders. Not my description, but the description of developers Trendy Entertainment. There’s a LOT going…

On The Beta Track: Path Of Exile

We last wrote about online-only, free-to-play ARPG Path of Exile in April and it was already looking like an interesting proposition. It’s in closed beta now and there’s a terribly agonising countdown clock on the website to inform the world of when another lucky player will be allowed in. It’s like a cruel competition that I never win. Has anyone had any luck and if…

Texas Stranger: The Real Texas

There may well be only one epic action RPG you need in the nebulous ‘Coming Soon’ bracket and it speaks for itself. “The Real Texas is an action adventure game that plays like a mashup of Zelda: Link to the Past and Ultima VI. Sam, an ordinary Texas rancher, is on holiday in England when he falls into a blue portal and lands in The…

Titanic Quest: Crate Speak About Grim Dawn

Crate Entertainment, an indie development studio born out of the ashes of Titan Quest creators Iron Lore, have been working on their first major project for a while now. Grim Dawn, built using the tech behind Titan Quest, will hopefully be entering alpha at some point this year, and it's a game we're extremely excited to see. So we caught up with Crate's core man,…

ARPG Gets Dark: Path Of Exile

I'm loving the swell of action RPGs in development at the moment. Another we've recently discovered is Path Of Exile, from independent developers Grinding Gears Games. It's to be an online-only, free-to-play game (no, wait, come back! - this one looks very different), which they describe as a "competitive online action RPG". So while the game's hubs will have very many players, the randomly generated…
