In this week's exciting episode of The Saturday Morning Stream, I play a challenging fantasy action-adventure game that just sort of showed up this week — Bound by Flame.
Bound By Flame hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 4 on Friday. Focus Home Interactive's hack-and-slash action role-playing game is flying low under the radar — I had to look it up when I posted The Week in Games on Sunday. Strange, as it seems like the kind of game I'd really dig. We'll find out for sure…
The latest installment of the video game adventures of everyone's favorite public domain detective was announced for the PlayStation 4 today, along with a new trailer desperately evoking the BBC's modern day buddy detective hit.
This is the debut trailer for Etherium, an upcoming real-time strategy game for PC. It comes from the developer behind Stellar Impact, and puts you in control of one of three factions, which you lead on a conquest for control of the seven planets' etherium reserves—this game's analogue for Dune's spice. Looks fun!
This here is the first teaser trailer for Bound by Flame, the new game by Spiders, the studio responsible for the sci-fi RPG Mars: War Logs. As you can see, this one's a more fantasy-oriented RPG.
Farming Simulator graces European and Japanese consoles today. If you're in either of these two regions, you can now officially head out and grab the game for Xbox 360 or PS3. Those in North America will have to wait a bit longer for their copies, which will be here "shortly." Until then, here's the launch trailer.
Cyberpunk RPG-brawler thingamajig Mars: War Logs is now out on Xbox 360 via the Live Arcade. Its PS3 version is expected to arrive on August 7 in Europe, and later that month in the US.
Here, we get to witness a rather extreme approach to farming (at least compared to the Farming Sim 2013 trailer). Heck, even the video title on YouTube is in all caps. Must be the effects of making the console leap. In any case, Farming Simulator is hitting PS3 and Xbox 360 in "the first week of September."
Frogwares, known mostly for their Sherlock Holmes brand of adventure games, brings us Magrunner: Dark Pulse, a first-person action-physics puzzler-platformer hybrid with the tagline "Technology Meets Cthulhu." Huh.
We've seen a lot of the gameplay mechanics behind Mars: War Logs, Spiders' third-person sci-fi RPG. This time, Spiders CEO Jehanne Rousseau tells us about the game's story and universe, and describes the ways our choices will shape the way the story unfolds. Mars: War Logs is coming "very soon" to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
This is not something you joke about, Focus Home Interactive. Once you invoke Creepy Watson, there is no going back.
One clear, overriding fact became immediately apparent, as I started up The Testament of Sherlock Holmes: Sherlock is a grade-A unrepentant jerk.
The Next Big Thing, a rather colourful adventure game from Focus Home Interactive, has a playable demo out now you can work your way through. It's on PC and Mac, and you can grab it here.
The bloody conflict in the Kingdom of Westeros comes to life in the first screens of A Game of Thrones: Genesis, the real-time strategy game based on acclaimed fantasy author George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire saga.
In case your favorite fantasy football team didn't make it into the initial PC release of Cyanide Studio's adaptation of the Games Workshop board game, chances are they'll be showing up in Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition later this year.
