Shadow Warrior 2 Slices And Dices Onto PC In October

Shoot and slice ’em up Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] is set to launch October 13. It’s a bloody, over-the-top ninja adventure that doesn’t take itself too seriously. There’s a guy taking a selfie as he decapitates a monster, so there’s stuff in there us millennials can relate to, too. It’s also shaping up to be quite beautiful if you look past all of the gore spraying everywhere. In the trailer below, Flying Wild Hog has recreated the subtle fall foliage of November in Japan contrasted with the white-washed walls of austere Buddhist temples. Lovely!

Content Cannon: Enter The Gungeon Supply Drop Update

New weapons, items, enemies, bosses, and rooms are coming to Enter the Gungeon [official site] in a big ole update. Developers Dodge Roll Games today announced the ‘Supply Drop Update’, due to hit the roguelikelike shooter this autumn. Our John really liked Gungeon so good! This is good. Another free update is due to follow Supply Drop too, before a “full-blown” expansion arrives “early next year”. Pew pew.

Wot I Think: Okhlos

Myths and legends! Ancient Greek philosophers! Proletariat revolution! The natural ingredients, of course, of a spectacularly stupid game.

Good stupid, not bad stupid. Or at least, deliberate stupid, not accidental stupid. Okhlos [official site] is a big, dumb, like really really dumb, mash-up of a shmup, ARPG and briefly notorious GTA coat-tail-rider State of Emergency, wherein you amass a growing horde of ancient Greek sorts then go lay waste to any and everything in pursuit of liberty from titans, gods and their various hired help.

Devolver Announce Scum, Croteam’s Survive ‘Em Up

Devolver Digital, the publishers of such brash games as Hotline Miami and Broforce, have announced that they’re publishing Scum [official site], a multiplayer open-world survival game headed to Steam Early Access in 2017. That doesn’t seem like Devolver’s style, given that they’ve traditionally blazed their own path and inspired imitators rather than the other way around, but hey! There’s an edgy twist, of course: you play convicts fighting each other for the delight of audiences. It’s being made by Gas Guzzlers developers Gamepires with Serious Sam gang Croteam. As much as I like Croteam, this is… ah, anyway, here’s all we know for now.

Have You Played… OlliOlli?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Or OlliOlli 2, whatever you want. I prefer the look of the first one, with it’s crunchy pixels and bloodied sprites. Because that’s what happens in this skateboarding game, you mess up your trick, fall from 10 feet, crack your bones, roll, bleed and eventually come to a stop. It’s delightful.

Just Can’t Wait To Be King? Reigns Is Out Today

Reigns [official site] is a game of decision-making and courtly governance that was described by Adam as Crusader Kings meets Tinder. You get presented with card after card of choices and have to swipe left or right (or in our case, click) in order to say yes or no to your courtiers’ requests. It’s also out today. I’ve just played 20 minutes of it. One of my kings was abandoned to rule over a kingdom of pigeons, another was slaughtered and thrown to the dogs by the merchant class, and another went mad, kicked a dog and started hearing the Devil. It’s good to be the king.

Long Live The… Oh Dear. Reigns Slides Onto PC 11 Aug

Reigns [official site] – described by Adam as Crusader Kings meets Tinder – will be swiping its way onto PC from 11 August.

I remember it being one of his favourite games at Rezzed when we went earlier in the year so let’s have a look at what he said at the time and why he liked it so much. But first, some gameplay footage:
