Review: The Witch and the Hundred Knight photo
Review: The Witch and the Hundred Knight
by Chris Carter

Nippon Ichi Software is one hell of a developer. One day they could be lighting the world on fire with one of the most celebrated games in a genre (Disgaea), and the next, they could be milking a franchise into oblivion (Disgaea Infinite). Strategy RPGs are their forte, but they've made 2D platformers, action-RPGs, and a whole lot more.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight is their latest, and it's basically an amalgamation of everything they've learned so far -- which is both good and bad.

Bound By Flame is richly detailed and dark photo
Bound By Flame is richly detailed and dark
by Alessandro Fillari

The fantasy genre has been a staple of the gaming scene for a long time. They go hand in hand, really. Because of this, it’s common to see titles that look to similar to each and don’t necessarily distinguish themselves from the pack.

Well, I was lucky enough to check out a new title within the genre that seeks to leave a big impression on fans. In Bound By Flame, players can walk the fine line between good and evil, and leave a very visible and lasting impression on their character and the world they inhabit.

At GDC, the developers at Spiders, creators of Mars: War Logs and their last fantasy title Of Orcs and Men, showed off a near-final build of their next action-RPG title. During this private showing, they displayed several sections of the game and went into detail about the choices and customization players can expect in their adventures.

Natural Doctrine videos show uninterrupted gameplay, bare thighs

Hah, okay, this is still a bit confusing. I'm still not sure how the boxes work. Maybe they're range stat based and actions doesn't take moves separately from movement. But then why would there be a series of boxes? Also, wh...

by Steven Hansen

Paradox Interactive, makers of grand strategy games (Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings) and Magicka, are teaming up with Obsidian (South Park: The Stick of Truth, Fallout: New Vegas) for their new RPG, Pillars of Eternity.

On the heels of its fastest selling game (Europa Universalis IV), Paradox is building two new studios, as well as turning up its publishing efforts with partnerships like the Obsidian one. "We make games that we want to play," Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester explained. "It's both how we scout games and how we make games."

Wester said they're hoping for a long relationship with Obsidian and stresses that Obsidian is going to be in full creative control of the game, which remains their IP.

Barkley 2 developers hope to release in late 2014 photo
Barkley 2 developers hope to release in late 2014
by Alessandro Fillari

It's not often that you see fan games actually go anywhere beyond the initial gimmick. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the developers at Tales of Games spent the last year and a half hard at work creating the sequel to their cult hit, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. The announcement of Barkley 2 took many by surprise, especially coming from such humble beginnings. Speaking with Liam Raum, President of Tales of Games, he spoke honestly about how the development has progressed, and why they chose to switch things up for more action oriented gameplay.

At GDC's Indie Mega Booth, Tales of Games, along with several other developers, showed off a playable build of their title. While Barkley 2 is a sequel, this title also works as a stand alone game. Because of this, the developers wanted to make something that set itself apart from the original. "The concept of Barkley 2 actually predated the original game. We always wanted to make a game in this fashion," Liam Raum said. This time around, players take on the role of an amnesiac Cyborg by the name of X114JAM9, who must explore the Cyberpocalyptic Wasteland in search of answers about his past.
