Kingdoms Of Amalur will get a new expansion after its re-release

THQ Nordic today announced a release date of September 8th for Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, their re-release of the 2012 RPG, plus a little surprise. They've revealed plans for a brand new Amalur expansion due in 2021, though all we know for now is its name: Fatesworn. The re-release doesn't seem drastically different but if it leads to newness, that sounds grand.

Feature: Where the wild things are

Biomutant sounds like Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but furrier

The Biomutant reveal feels like a lifetime ago. Announced at Gamescom in 2017, the kung fu... cat/panda/bear-thing captured the imagination of everyone with that first trailer. And, despite some delays, the excitement for Experiment 101's open world RPG has been growing ever since. No wonder, I suppose. You are a kung fu cat/panda/bear-thing, after all.

Ambitious RPG Biomutant returns with a lengthy new trailer

It's been long enough since Biomutant was in the conversation that I'd assumed it had come out without fanfare, or else been quietly canned. But after confirming that yes, Biomutant is still very much in active development, developers Experiment 101 put more weight to that claim with a lengthy new trailer for the open-world mutate 'em up earlier today. It's a big'un, too, a whopping…

Feature: Are you ready, kids?

SpongeBob: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehydrated is your childhood, but shinier

I never got SpongeBob Squarepants. When he was in his pomp, I was in that awkward pre-teen phase where I thought I was too old to just enjoy it as a cartoon, but not quite old enough to be part of the older folk that watched. Because of that, I never played Battle For Bikini Bottom when it first launched in 2003. I have a…

Speedrunners already have Desperados 3 in their sights and it’s mesmerising

Strategic wild west adventure Desperados 3 is out and yup, it's a gunslingin' good time according to RPS's Desperados 3 review. Your crew of misfits sneak through trains, towns, and other yeehaw settings to take out enemies with stealth and trickery.

Desperados 3 is out now, and it’s great

The rootin', tootin', squad-based tactical shooting that is Desperados 3 finally launched today, reviving the Commandos-esque noughties series created by Spellbound Entertainment. It's been placed in great hands: Minimi, the makers of Shadow Tactics, and our Desperados 3 review from Commandos devotee Tim Stone declares Desperados 3 "every bit as brilliant" as Shadow Tactics. So, that's good. It has a demo too.

Feature: Smashing stuff!

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning, the MMO for misanthropes, barely needs updating at all

I have long described Kingdoms Of Amular: Reckoning as one of my favourite games. It has also been a long time since I checked. And as you can see, despite its status in my gaming life, I still can't spell its name correctly. AmAlUr. Am-ah-lure.With the very welcome recent announcement that its most recent owners, THQ Nordic, are remastering it, I thought I'd return to…

Feature: Cull cussing cowboys creatively

Desperados 3 review

Claymore Game Studios, the newly formed outfit tasked with reviving the Commandos franchise, is in need of an Unreal Engine expert, a 3D artist, a 3D animator, and a senior level designer. Whoever secures the latter job will, if they are sensible, do nothing their first week except watch old war movies and play Desperados III. Proving that the superb Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun…

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning is getting a remaster this year

It seems a listing on the Microsoft Store went up a little earlier than intended yesterday, as it's revealed that a remaster of Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning is on the way. The hack and slash RPG originally came out in 2012, and despite having a pretty adoring fanbase, it didn't quite reach the level of success players thought it would. Perhaps it'll do a little…

This Desperados 3 choose your own trailer has you decide between stealth and strength

This new Desperados 3 trailer presents a couple puzzling pickles of the variety you'll navigate when the game releases later this month. It's a choose your own trailer assisted by the magic of world wide web hyperlinks. Do you roll into cowboyville through the front…

Desperados 3 gets a lengthy gameplay trailer before launch next month

There's a new trailer in town for cowboy stealth game Desperados 3. What they're calling an "explanation trailer" doubles as a very long gameplay trailer that pretty well serves as a tutorial too. The new video goes over each of the characters, cover mechanics, coordinated attacks, and lots more with a nice fresh look at each.

Desperados III will continue the tactical cowboy action in June

THQ Nordic today announced a June 16th release date for Desperados III, a revival of the rootin' tootin' real-time tactical squad game. Last seen in 2006, Desperados was a decent wild west take on ye olde Commandos series.

Feature: Hover bored

Premature Evaluation: Comanche

The latest in a long list of topics I have hurled myself into these past two weeks in the naive hope of distracting my anxiety for even just a few minutes, helicopters are all I’m choosing to think about right now. Wow, how do they work? The world is coming to an end. They’re such an exciting way to get around! Hovering celebrity death traps.…

Biomutant is still in the works, its developers confirm

Kung-fu animal action RPG Biomutant has been in the works for quite a while. Biomutant was announced back in 2017 and was then planning for a release the following year in 2018. Both of those years have come and gone and mum's been the word but Experiment 101 spoke up today to assure folks that the pretty apocalypse is still coming. "We've never been working…

Desperados 3 gets a new trailer and is coming this summer

Things have been quiet out of the Desperados 3 corner for several months, ever since the closed beta in 2019. Sometimes a cowboy's got a feeling though and I had a good feeling we'd see Mimimi Productions' next tactical game in 2020. Looks like it's time to put another news in the chamber and cock it because Desperados 3 has a new trailer today and…

They released a public playable prototype in December and, having surveyed players, today announced reactions were positive enough for them to think it worthwhile. They did note that they're aware that not all the Gothic Playable Teaser's new design decisions and artistic changes were popular, and say they'll have…

Darksiders, Darksiders II, and Steep are free for a week on the Epic Game Store

It never ends. First there are the Xmas sales, full of gaming turkey for me to fill up on. Then my aunt showed up with Lee Carvallo’s Modern Warfare. And now, post-New Year, the Epic Game Store has just thrust Darksiders Warmastered Edition, Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, and Steep into my arms. They’re free from now until Jan 9.
