Aragami 2 Launch Trailer Hypes Another Epic Stealth Adventure

6 hours 59 minutes ago

After a delay or two along the way, the next chapter of Lince Works’ acclaimed stealth-action series, Aragami, finally launches today, and there’s a brand new trailer to get you in the mood.

As we’ve seen in previous developer diaries, the sequel looks exciting for its new and improved mechanics, which were previously described by Lince Work’s Gina Campoy as having been designed to “push the boundaries of what players can do with movement, abilities, and use of powers.”

  • A wide variety of abilities, shadow powers, and special equipment

Honey, I Joined a Cult Is a Novel Take on a Tried & Tested Genre

7 hours 27 minutes ago

The management sim genre has been around for years. Players have built and maintained their own hospitals, constructed outrageous rollercoasters, and ensured their theme parks remained as puke-free as possible. They’ve developed sprawling metropolises and even taken their management skills to the farthest reaches of space. It’s impressive, then, that developers are still capable of finding novel takes on the genre, and that’s exactly what Honey, I Joined a Cult manages to achieve.

As the title suggests, you’re tasked with managing a cult. You’re the architect of a new cult in the 1970s, tasked with designing everything from the ground up. That includes the grubby bathrooms, featuring buckets for toilets and troughs for sinks, at least initially. Your main objective is to turn your cult’s compound into a sprawling, money-making machine that, above all else, keeps your leader happy.

It’s a neat concept that features many of the standard management sim tropes. You need to recruit followers into cultists, and then use them to man different facilities, while ensuring they remain happy. This is done by keeping them well-fed, ensuring they don’t get too bored when they’re not working, and generally don’t give them any reason to question your cult and its leader. That requires you to improve your facilities to upgrade the aforementioned bucket toilets to the real deal or adding a kitchen onto your canteen so they don’t have to eat vending machine food all day.

The facilities are all appropriately quirky, too. An Energy Spa, Meditation Studio, and Spirit Chamber are just a handful of the Therapy Rooms you’ll unlock early on, allowing you to milk your followers for Influence and earn the cultist running the room some XP. This XP can then be used to level up a variety of skills, which improves their efficiency in different roles around the camp.

Valheim’s Hearth & Home Update Lets You Get Into a Hot Tub With Friends

12 hours 15 minutes ago

Valheim has been one of the biggest early access hits of the year, and developing studio Iron Gate is still working on pushing out updates and improvements to it. The latest update, titled Hearth and Home, has been teased for a few months now, and it’s finally available for download.

You can check out the trailer for yourself down below:

The Hearth and Home update is primarily focused on bringing new types of furnishings and other decorative items you can place around your base; originally, it didn’t seem like there’d be a whole ton of new content in the ‘story’ department like new bosses or biomes. However, the end of the trailer seems to tease a new type of threat that players will be facing in the new update.

Whether this marks the opening of a new biome remains to be seen, but quite frankly, even without any new enemy types, just being able to craft a hot tub along with other furniture would keep me occupied for tens of hours.

Valheim is now available on PC.

The post Valheim’s Hearth & Home Update Lets You Get Into a Hot Tub With Friends appeared first on Twinfinite.

Star Citizen Gets New Video About Radical Inventory Changes as Crowdfunding Passes $385 Million

22 hours 4 minutes ago

Today Cloud Imperium Games released a new video about its growing space simulator Star Citizen, showcasing a rather radical upcoming change.

Until now, the game had a non-final global inventory in which players were able to access everything they owned from everywhere.

We get to see the new UI and to hear from the developers how it’ll work.

In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total has passed $385 million and it’s currently sitting on $385,126,982.

The number of registered accounts has recently passed 3.2 million, and it’s at 3,248,600 at the moment of this writing.

As usual, you should keep in mind that it’s known that not all of them are paying players. The number includes free accounts created for a variety of reasons, including Free Fly events like the one that recently ended.

Iconic Video Game Merchants That We Love to Buy From

23 hours 32 minutes ago

From horror to JRPGs, the need to buy and sell items to a merchant is usually present in most video games. Sometimes they’re a great way to make some extra cash by selling some things you don’t need and other times using their services is necessary to proceed into the game.

Some of these iconic characters are memorable for being helpful, funny, mysterious, or just being integral to the plot. Nevertheless, these video game merchants made such an impact on us that they become an integral part of the game they appear in or even the franchise they’re from.

Here are some video game merchants that we love to buy from.

God of War Ragnarok Director Details Why Norse Storyline is Ending

1 day ago

Today, it was revealed that God of War Ragnarok will spell the end of the Norse mythology storyline that the series is currently following, despite it only being the second installment in the story. This news came by way of an interview with YouTube channel Kaptain Kuba, which you can see for yourself below.

In the interview, the YouTuber asked God of War’s directors Cory Barlog and Eric Williams about the future of the series. In a somewhat unexpected answer, Barlog revealed that reasoning for ending the Norse storyline, which you can see in the quote below.

I think one of the most important reasons is the first game took five years, the second game, I don’t know how long it’s going to take but I’m just going to throw out that it’s going to take close to a similar time to do this, right, and then if you think, wow a third one in that same [amount of time], we’re talking like a span of close to 15 years of a single story and I feel like that’s just too stretched out.

Her quiet nature makes her true feelings difficult to read, and her formal way of speaking has led Shiki to see her as being rather mechanical. Her fighting skills are not quite on the same level as her sister, but she holds her own well enough.”

Lost Judgment Review – The Perfect Sequel

1 day 5 hours ago

Lost Judgment on PS4

Video game sequels can be pretty tricky to make, even for a successful title. While you’ve got an established IP and audience to work with, the tightrope of not changing things fans loved about the game while also creating enough new features to warrant a sequel can be hard to balance. Thankfully, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio does just that with Lost Judgment, creating a perfect sequel that improves upon existing features while also adding in amazing new ones.

Lost Judgment once again follows the adventures of Takayuki Yagami: a lawyer turned private detective who stops at nothing to find the truth. When another mysterious and seemingly impossible case is dropped into his lap, it is up to the Yagami Detective Agency to figure out what is really happening.

To do that, Yagami must case the streets and find leads, working with returning allies like Kaito, Sugiura, Hoshino, Saori, Higashi, and Tsukumo to help him piece things together. Things are never as simple as tracking down the right suspects, though, leading to plenty of combat, tailing, and investigating.

The most important improvement to note right off the bat is that droning, tailing, and photography missions have been toned down significantly. Lost Judgment still has aspects of them, but they no longer make up an excruciating amount of the game’s missions.

Even when included, majorily in Side Cases, these features don’t muddle down the experience either. A lot of this is because small changes have been implemented in each.

Flight of the Navigator Takes to the Skies Once Again In New Reboot for Disney+

1 day 6 hours ago

Fans of ’80s nostalgia, rejoice! Yes, Flight of the Navigator is all set for a reboot at Disney+, and Jurassic World star, Bryce Dallas Howard, has officially signed on to helm the project.

The news comes by way of a new report from The Hollywood Reporter. According to their intel, “Bryce Dallas Howard is attached to direct and produce a female-led reimagining of the 1986 kids sci-fi adventure movie for Walt Disney Studios.”

For those unaware, Flight of the Navigator is a beloved children’s sci-fi classic that stars 12 year-old David (played by Joey Cramer) who is transported back in time after he accidentally falls into a ravine near his home.

When he awakens, eight years have passed and when he arrives back at his house, all is not as it seems: another family lives in his home, his younger brother is now even older than him, and he’s continually receiving strange telepathic messages from a mysterious alien spacecraft.

Throw in some suspicious NASA scientists, a charming AI alien computer called Max (who’s very reminiscent of Knight Rider’s KITT), a handful of extraterrestrial critters and a teenage Sarah Jessica Parker, and you’ve got all the trappings for a successful ’80s sci-fi pic that is super fun for all the family.

Apparently, according to the recent report, “Disney tried reimagining the title in 2009 — at one point, Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly worked on the script — but lost the rights to Lionsgate in the 2010s.”
