Torment: Tides of Numenera is a spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment released way back in 1999. It has been one of the most successful kickstarter campaigns for a video game, raising just over $4,000,000 and had already reached its goal in just 6 hours when it launched in March 2013. You take the role of the aptly-named the Last Castoff whose consciousness has just been born in a body that has once been created and now cast aside by an ancient man known only as the Changing God, thus 'perfecting' immortality. Set one billion years in the future in this isometric RPG sci-fi fantasy ... Read More »
If you're old enough to remember Maniac Mansion or even the Monkey Island games (considering it's been re-released on Xbox 360 and recently released as Games with Gold titles), then you may remember the wit that came along with those titles created by Ron Gilbert (but now owned by Disney due to George Lucas selling LucasArts to them). Gilbert's studio Terrible Toybox has announced an official release date for Thimbleweed Park, which tells the tale of a dead body that nobody is interested in. More to the point: There's a mystery going down with bizarre occurrences and 5 strangers who ... Read More »
A little while ago, Overwatch posted an interesting picture on their twitter page, which has made Overwatch fans lose their head. https://twitter.com/PlayOverwatch/status/836320029222150144 Many are speculating that this is indeed a tease for a new upcoming character, with most suggesting it is a character called Lucio. Some twitter users even poke fun at the tweet: https://twitter.com/ItsGertt/status/836320950312288256 I suspect it won't be long before we hear an actual confirmation from them themselves regarding the tease, but be sure once they do, we will let you know! What do you think this tease means for Overwatch? We would be happy to hear your ... Read More »
Chroma Squad is a tactical RPG that sees a bunch of stunt actors quitting their current jobs to create their own 'unique' television show in order to gain high viewer ratings.

Join forces with your allies to combine your abilities and unleash destruction ratings upon the world. Be sure to watch the trailer below to give you a better insight onto this crazy title.

Something that can be said about Microsoft, especially since Phil Spencer took charge, is that they definitely don't adopt a 'fire and forget' philosophy when it comes to Backwards Compatibility. They have a team constantly working on patches, bugs and releases and like to keep you updated through social media of things they're working on. Look at Halo Reach for example. When that was released it was riddled with bugs, screen-tearing and numerous other annoyances that made the game unplayable on Xbox One. If you fire it up today, it's as polished as the day it was born. Proof that ... Read More »
