Metro Exodus wants you to feel liberated from all those trips through the tunnels

It’s deathly quiet in the forest. Then the silence gives way to a man shouting for help. He's tied to a post and trying to fend off a ravenous wolf. A single crossbow bolt takes the feral creature out. The shirtless man pleads for my help to free him, cussing as he explains his predicament. I choose to cut him loose. “I owe you my…

Pathfinder: Kingmaker review

Starting a new tabletop RPG campaign is a bit like joining an complicated polyamorous relationship. You have to make sure you like your companions, but most importantly, you and the Dungeon Master must share the same vision. ANYWAY, my point is that in a game of Dungeons & Dragons, some DMs like to follow the rules by the book, others just use rules as a…

Town-building hybrid RPG Pathfinder: Kingmaker is out now

I've always thought the best RPGs are the ones where you have a home to come back to, to celebrate victory and plan your next - Pathfinder: Kingmaker, you get your own town. Released today, Kingmaker looks like familiar Baldur's Gate-esque RPG adventuring, but with personal purpose. You're securing your lands, and in-between quests you get to develop your burgeoning kingdom. Based on the almost-D&D tabletop…

The manchildren of Metro Exodus are adorable idiots

“Get lost or pay wit ur life,” says the note. Normally, I would not be threatened by such a poorly spelled message from – let me see – ah yes, the “Brezeren of the Coast”. After all, the note is written with the tone of a brat in a treehouse. That said, it was also delivered by a scarily accurate crossbow bolt, piercing the wooden…

Shenmue 3 release date announced for August 2019

While Sega are busy blowing up balloons and filling bowls with Hula Hoops for the launch of their remastered rereleases of Shenmue I & II in only a few hours, the makers of Shenmue III have kicked in the door yelling about their own Shennues: a release date for their crowdfunded sequel. Shenmue III will launch on August 27th, 2019, Ys Net and Deep Silver…

A new TimeSplitters coming after Crytek sell rights

In their ongoing mission to own the world's largest collection of intellectual property rights to perfectly decent action games that make people nod and say "Yeah I liked that back in the day" when reminded of them, an arm of THQ Nordic has grabbed Free Radical Design's time-travelling FPS series TimeSplitters. Crytek had previously owned the TimeSplitters rights, picking them up along with the Free…

Baldur’s Gate-ish pen & paper adaptation Pathfinder: Kingmaker due September 25th

Paizo's pen and paper RPG Pathfinder may not be Dungeons & Dragons, but it's as close as you can get to it while still being legally distinct, which makes it perfect source material for a Baldur's Gate-esque old school RPG. Successfully Kickstarted a year ago, Pathfinder: Kingmaker now has a release date - September 25th - and a very fancy new trailer below to accompany…

Dead Island 2 rises from the grave with tower defense tide over

Dead Island 2 is one of my favorite trailers of all time for a game I'd all but given up on seeing. Back in 2014, the studio Yager was developing the then announced title for Deep Silver, and in 2016 the production was moved to Sumo Digital. As a reminder, it is now 2018, so Dead Island 2 and its Santa Monica-ish muder-setting seem like…

Metro Exodus surfaces in February 2019

If you want to see nuclear winter again, you'll need to survive regular winter, as Metro Exodus has confirmed a release day of February 22nd, 2019. The FPS series based on the post-apocalyptic novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky is venturing even further away from the Moscow subways where all this started, this time roaming across big sandbox overground levels. And apparently fighting boat-chomping giant mutant pondlife…

Shenmue III won’t be released in 2018, but you knew that already

You've been waiting 17 years for Shenmue III - what's one more year between friends? Sure, a delay until until 2019 makes the time between the wildly successful Kickstarter for Yu Suzuki's white whale and its eventual reality jump to four years, but I think we all knew this was inevitable.

Koch are the father-company of Deep Silver, who publish games like Saints Row, Metro, Dead Island, and Homefront: The Revolution. That means THQ Nordic now own alllll of those bad boys, among others. Due to all the combined plates this company now spins, they could now…

Report: layoffs at Saints Row dev Volition

Saints Row and Agents of Mayhem studio Volition has laid off about 15% of its employees this week, according to a Kotaku report citing three unnamed sources. While layoffs after a big game launches aren't uncommonas studios become far less busy (Agents of Mayhem came out last month), reportedly Volition general manager Dan Cermak was among those let go - and that is a touch…

Shenmue 3 picks up Deep Silver as publisher

With the development saga of Shenmue 3 [official site] now creeping up on sixteen years, hey, here's another little bit of good news. After getting the ball rolling with crowdfunding, the RPG has now secured a publisher. Developers Ys net today announced that they've signed up with Deep Silver, the folks who publish such series as Saints Row and Metro. Having the technical and financial…

Agents Of Mayhem review

Agents Of Mayhem [official site] should not be judged for not being a Saints Row game. Volition are under no obligation to keep making that series, even after they struck on such extraordinary gold with SR III and IV. Agents Of Mayhem loosely shares the same universe, albeit mostly via the presence of the colour purple and fleurs-de-lis. There are also a few half-familiar character…

Humble Saints Row Bundle has other games too

The new Humble Saints Row Bundle is only about 50% Saints Row, puffed out with rusk and a little spice, but that's a legally acceptable ratio for sausages and I suppose will do for a pay-what-you-want bundle of video games. It's more like a Humble Deep Silver Bundle but shops don't go calling pork sausages 'pork, water, and rusk sausages' either. If you've somehow avoided…

It'll continue from Metro 2033 and Last Light and apparently get out into some lovely sunshine. Here, check out the announcement trailer, which has a good chunk of demo gameplay:

Kingdom Come: Deliverance gets a new trailer

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…

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…

Agents of Mayhem blasting onto PC August 18

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…
