BioWare's multiplayer action-RPG Shadow Realms looks fast and fun photo
BioWare's multiplayer action-RPG Shadow Realms looks fast and fun
by Jordan Devore

BioWare had my attention with those live-action teasers building up to Shadow Realms, but I've not kept up with the four-versus-one "modern" fantasy role-playing game since it was proper unveiled. If you're in a similar boat, here's Max Scoville and Mike Cosimano talking about it at length.

My general reaction so far is "Huh. That could be cool." I'm not sold on the episodic nature of the game, but a guy in a suit fighting fantasy creatures? Yeah, that's all right.

I've discovered a new go-to game for relaxing photo
I've discovered a new go-to game for relaxing
by Jordan Devore

I play videogames for many reasons. Sometimes, I play for the story -- the chance to visit new worlds and live out someone else's life. Other times, it's the sense of competition I find most alluring, or the chance to master a game's rules and finally overcome its fiercest challenges.

But for every passing motivation to play games I have, I'll always been in need of one that can help me relax. Something to take my mind off life's problems, no matter how big or small they might be. Something I can get into for 15 minutes, or hours on end. Something that'll last.

Right now, Endless Ocean: Blue World is that game for me, and what a gem it is.
