CD Projekt Red, developer of the critically acclaimed Witcher series, has just announced that they have delayed their highly anticipated 2020 release, Cyberpunk 2077 — and that’s not a bad thing. The Polish developer took to Twitter today to announce that their upcoming open-world RPG has been pushed back from its original April release date to September 17 later this year.

The fact that I didn’t see this coming is a surprise. Continue reading “Pokémon DLC in Perspective: The Rough Release of Sword and Shield”
Ancient Apparition: Frosty’s meaner cousin.
Ancient Apparition is classified as a ranged Intelligence hero whose roles are Support/Disabler/Nuker. Kaldr, the Ancient Apparition, is not necessarily a character. He is, according to his bio, “an image projected outside of time.” His purpose unknown, his final form incomprehensible; what we see now is just a glimpse of what Kaldr is. Continue reading “Dungeons and DotA: Creating Ancient Apparition”
Alchemist: He rides the ogre.
Alchemist is classified as a melee Strength hero whose roles are all over the place. A mix of high damage, high health, debuffs, and a whole slew of other things make this disastrous duo a versatile hero. Alchemist’s backstory is pretty wonderful if you ask me. The little guy of the pair (the actual alchemist, Razzil Darkbrew) tried to turn a mountain into gold. He instead blew it up and destroyed a ton of stuff. In prison, he buddies up with the big fella (henceforth called “the ogre”). Razzil drugs him into a rage so they can break out of prison, with the ultimate goal of attempting to turn a mountain into gold (again). Continue reading “Dungeons and DotA: Creating Alchemist”
Microsoft just unveiled a limited-time subscription service, Xbox All Access, for not just games, but the console itself starting at $19.99 a month. Well, not exactly. You’ll essentially be signing up for a line of credit through a partnership Microsoft has with Citizens One. It’s going to feel like a subscription service because along with the console, you’ll get 24 months of Game Pass Ultimate (Includes Xbox Live, and Game Pass for console and PC), as well as an option to upgrade your console after 18 months. (Limited time 12-month console upgrade if you get an Xbox One X) Continue reading “Xbox All Access, Microsoft’s Promise of the Best Value in Gaming”
Abaddon: the scary man with a scary face.
Abaddon is classified as a melee Strength hero whose roles are Support/Carry/Durable. Using a mix of healing, protection, and damage abilities, Abaddon is a mixed bag who excels in staying in lane and leading the charge. With a terrifying voice, an eerily buck-toothed horse, and a creepy slouch, the first thing that we can mark down with Abaddon is his alignment. His unnerving cool, title of “lord,” and allegiance to House Avernus mix well with his creepy demeanor to put him solidly into Lawful Evil (in my opinion the most playable of the evil alignments – don’t @ me). Continue reading “Dungeons and DotA: Creating Abaddon”
Personally, I find creating a character to be one of the most fun parts of any game. Over the past few months, I’ve found myself creating more and more character builds for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition (henceforth called DnD 5e). Whether revamping a past character or designing a “horseless cavalier,” the variety in races, classes, weapons, spells, and feats makes character creation a nuanced and in-depth process.

MindSeize, developed by Kamina Dimension out of Finland, is a new, story-driven, 2D sci-fi Metroidvania game. MindSeize’s Kickstarter campaign just launched on August 28th and runs until September 27th. The campaign has so far raised $5,050 of it’s $19,000 goal (and is steadily climbing). This game caught my attention not too long ago with its fluid and detailed pixel animations; see for yourself in their Kickstarter announcement trailer at the bottom.
