Cult hit: Crusader Kings 2’s Monks & Mystics DLC is out

Cults and orders of assassins, satananiacs, Hermetics, monks, and more are now roaming the historical simulation of Crusader Kings 2 [official site], if you buy the latest expansion anyway. Paradox today launched Monks and Mystics, which boshes in secret (and not-so secret) orders who reward loyalty with handy abilities, pops in holy relics and masterwork weapons, and more. In short, yes, you can sacrifice people in Lucifer’s name and try to summon a familiar.

As is the Paradox way, also out today is a big new update free for all players. It brings new features, useful changes, welcome fixes, and things that, y’know, sound funny. Sadly, the endless carousing has ended. Read the rest of this entry »

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter Cursing May

Sherlock Holmes has already survived an encounter with Cthulhu, I can’t imagine that The Devil’s Daughter [official site] will cause the great detective too much bother. That said, maybe she has something to prove. She’ll certainly have to pull more pranks than her old da to be taken seriously, and even then folks will say she hasn’t earned her cape. (Yes, I did read this about Chris Eubank Jr. the other day.) “Are… are you Satan?” quivering mortals ask. “Well, I’m a Satan” she sighs.

Point is, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter will arrive on May 27th, Frogwares have announced. I mean, I assume it’s about the literal daughter of the literal Devil.

I Bring You Fire: Lucius 2 Released

haha look at that satanerd with his cross the wrong way up!!

If you, like me, are a bit oblivious, you probably didn’t notice that Friday and Saturday were very important days. You may also, like me, now be trying to quickly squeeze both Friday the 13th and Valentine’s Day into one single celebration of love and fear. I’ve been snogging my own hand underneath a ladder, making quite clear that I’m only doing it because I feel obliged to, and have been feeding expensive chocolates to neighbourhood black cats.

I suppose you could also catch up on Ole Spooky Friday by playing minisatan simulator Lucius II [official site], as it launched on that dire day.

Sandbox Sataning: Lucius 2 Announced

Psst! Kid! Your cross is downside-up.

The idea of Lucius sounded jolly good fun, an Omen ’em up about the son of the Satan offing his family and servants. But as our Jim noted in his review, in reality it was more an adventure game where the puzzles to solve happened to be people to murder. You might, for example, break a lawnmower so you can mind-control the gardener into jamming his head into its spinning blades.

Lucius II, announced today, seems far more keen on Satantic murder. Developers Shiver Games describe it as a “3D splatter adventure sandbox” about terrorising a hospital and a small town. The trailer sure has a lot of splatter, with heads popping off and fires fires fires.
