Kingdom Come: Deliverance gets a new trailer

Kingdom Come: Deliverance banner

Ever since I read Edwin’s early thoughts on medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site], in which he slung turds at a man who was singing a song he didn’t like, I’ve been intrigued.

Warhorse Studios and Deep Silver have now put up a new trailer featuring a lot of good-looking environments and townsfolk going about their daily routines (as well as teasing a bit of non-specific news for next Friday).

Volition’s Agents of Mayhem introduces shootstars

A new vidvad for Agents of Mayhem [official site], the upcoming singleplayer class-based shooter from Saints Row devs Volition, shows off several of its characters with pomp and explosions. The game hasn’t looked megagreat to my spectating eye but Holly Nielsen dug the preview version she played recently and Adam before her liked it too, so I’ll see how it goes. For now, the answer is: with jokes and explosions. Read the rest of this entry »

Agents of Mayhem blasting onto PC August 18

Agents of Mayhem

Agents Of Mayhem [official site] – the Volition cartoony third-person, open world action adventure set in the near future of the Saints Row universe – now has a release date. It’s August 18th (15th in North America), which is also Antonio Salieri’s birthday. Volition have also released a new trailer but it doesn’t mention Salieri NOR does it use the music of Salieri so please moderate your expectations appropriately: Read the rest of this entry »

Norks Out: Homefront Revolution’s Free Steam Weekend

The full version of Homefront: The Revolution [official site] is free to try on Steam this weekend and sure, I’ll bite. Our John’s review talked plenty about bugs and bad AI, but he also found a lot to like in the open-world FPS. Yup, it sounds like the sort of game I’d like to try a couple of hours. This weekend trial comes on the heels of another patch boosting performance and fixing bugs so hey, I guess freeloading latecomers like me get a better first experience that people who paid money for it at launch. Sorry, you lot.

Super Saints: Hands On With Agents Of Mayhem

Agents Of Mayhem [official site] explicitly plants Saints Row in a futureworld of supervillains and interplanetary metahuman agencies. I use the word ‘explicitly’ because Saints Row IV was already at least part way there, using the grammar of a superhero comic if not the language. I played through a mission of Mayhem recently and while I immediately missed some aspects of Saints Row, as an action game, Agents is streets ahead.

Totally Mega, Man: Mighty No. 9 Released

Mighty No. 9 [official site], the crowdfunded Mega Man ’em up from Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune’s new studio, is out today. Our review is still in the works but Wot Others Think seems not wholly positive. I could tell you to wait for our say then bosh in the launch trailer and call it a day but oh my gosh, I am fascinated by its launch livestream. While many video game launch streams are hype-o-ramas, this is also a bit of a post-mortem, disarmingly earnest and mildly apologetic after seeing the first wave of launch reviews. It’s surprisingly human.
