Development on new BioWare IP Shadow Realms ceased

Shadow Realms had a very cool idea going for it. The tabletop RPG-inspired, four versus one gameplay reminded me of board games like Descent or Level 7 [Omega Protocol]. The modern fantasy setting seemed like a nice break fro...

Actually, there are shields in Bloodborne

There are shields in Bloodborne after all, SCE Japan Studio has confirmed to IGN. Well I'll be. Shields will seem like a comfort to Souls players who haven't yet experienced the faster, in-your-face action of Bloodborne, but ...

Five things about the Persona 5 trailer from someone who knows nothing about Persona

Five things we just learned about Persona 5

Today, Atlus gave us our first look at Persona 5 in motion, and hot damn does it look amazing. We've been watching and rewatching the debut gameplay trailer all day. It's like a train wreck. You can't look away. Except unlike a train wreck it's glorious and beautiful and I love it. Anyway, we've noticed some things about the new game and have decided to share our thoughts.

Breach & Clear: Deadline is a surprisingly good action-RPG photo
Breach & Clear: Deadline is a surprisingly good action-RPG
by Jason Faulkner

The original Breach & Clear was a tactical strategy title in the vein of the XCOM or Rainbow Six series. It was fairly surprising when its sequel Breach & Clear: Deadline turned out to be an open-world tactical action RPG with zombies, which is probably a new genre and you heard it here first. I was skeptical of the idea at first; I mean tactical and zombie games are usually worlds apart in gameplay style, but after 30 minutes or so of play those fears were laid to rest.

The events of the game take place during an outbreak of "zombies" who are not zombies, but hyper-evolving parasitic worm infested human bodies. You play as a team of highly trained soldiers who make it their mission to protect the remaining humans of Harbor City, and stop the infestation at its source. Plot isn't a strong suit in Deadline, but the execution is quite a bit of fun, and sometimes it's nice to not have to concern yourself with an epic tale.

by Kyle MacGregor

Here we go! No more teasing. At long last, Atlus has given us our first real look at Persona 5 and it's just gorgeous. There's so much to analyze, so many details to pore over. For the moment, though, I can hardly bridle my excitement. This looks like a huge leap forward. Can't wait to play it!

Glasses, tattoos, origins: A taste of Bloodborne's character creator

In this short runthrough of Bloodborne's character editor, IGN was able to create a Harry Potter lookalike now that glasses are an option in the game. That's a worthwhile addition, but it's the "Origin" (i.e., class) option ...
