12 Games of Christmas - Divinity: Original Sin Vs Dragon Age: Inquisition

Written by Jon Sutton on 19 December 2014 at 19:30

2014’s been a standout year for RPGs, as the classic CRPG has undergone a sort of revival in recent months. Few would have predicted at the beginning of the year that Larian Studio’s Kickstarted RPG would be standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the latest AAA behemoth from BioWare, but here we are.

Now these two brutes are going to battle it, equipped with the latest +6 damage fists of fistcuffery, ready to do battle in an epic duel to the death. There can be only one winner, there can be only one survivor, there can be only one RPG battling its way through to the semi-final of the 12 Games of Christmas. [More]

Nestled snugly under the news of Telltale’s Episodic Minecraft: Story Mode is the pre-release of update 1.8.2 for Everybody’s favourite sandbox crafter from Mojang. The update improves performance in a number of areas, but has a special interest in taking explosions up a Notch (I’m not sorry).

Whether you find your TNT in desert temple traps or you grow your own back at the small moon-sized palace you’ve developed at base camp, it’s been twiddled with thanks to the latest update . The blast radius of explosives was directionally biased, as of the ten-month effort Update 1.8 - the Bountiful Update, but it’s now been switched back to how they were before. [More]

The Greatly anticipated Steam Controller is still nowhere to be seen, seven months after Valve decided to postpone releasing anything in favour of more tweaking, but the web may have just got a new glimpse at what’s to come. The most striking feature of this purported latest design is what looks to be the return of a D-pad on the left side.

The image was posted on by a staff member with the handle ‘Omnomnick’, who added that the designs were taken from files contained within the latest Steam Client beta update. He could only speculate as to the exact function of the D-pad design on the left touch pad. [More]

New Minecraft Tales To Be Told By Telltale

Written by Sam Welch on 19 December 2014 at 13:30

It looks like Telltale games aren't running out of tales to tell anytime soon - not that we’re complaining. The Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us alum is now working in collaboration with Mojang and the Minecraft Community to make a standalone episodic adventure series about the crafting-est darn crafting sandbox out there.

Minecraft: Story Mode will be a narrative driven adventure set in Notch’s unique block world and steered by player choice in the trademark Telltale style, and is coming in 2015 for PC and Mac. It’s inspired by the persistent creativity of the Minecraft community according to the studio, which has made Minecraft “the game that continues to inspire a generation”. Familiar tyhemes are to be expected, but a jumble of new characters are promised too. [More]

Two New RPGs In The Works From Divinity: Original Sin Studio Larian

Written by Sam Welch on 19 December 2014 at 11:55

Divinity: Original Sin may have ticked plenty of boxes with gamers all over and in our own review, but Swen Vincke in the big chair at Larian Studios has been frustrated with the final game. Citing a lack of “development capacity”, Vincke wishes he could have done more on almost every aspect.

Vincke has settled on a solution though that looks set to make everybody happy - Larian is expanding, and work has begun on two new RPG games, and both will use the engine created for D:OS. This will make it easy for work on Original Sin to continue alongside the production of these two new titles. Thanks to the commercial success of the latest Divinity, Larian is taking advantage of the experience and talent in Quebec City by opening a new office there and building a bigger team in service of the ongoing projects.
