The Witcher's creator says he was stupid for selling the game rights for a lump sum

Many people don't know this, but The Witcher wasn't a video game first. It was a series of short stories and novels, and it was (and still is) the stuff of legend in Poland. The author is Andrzej Sapkowski and his contribution to the f...   read

Mages of Mystralia is bringing its spellcrafting to PS4 next spring

Mages of Mystralia was one of my personal favorite games at PAX West 2016, but details on its release were still vague. At the time, indie game promoter Dan Adelman couldn't officially give a platform for its release, but at the time he did...   read

Vermintide's Drachenfels DLC introduces three new spooky maps

Joe liked the first-person cooperative rat-smashing Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide quite a bit, even though he felt it didn't do enough to differentiate itself from Left 4 Dead. I haven't had a chance to dig my teeth into it yet, bu...   read

Reality Pump isn't done with Two Worlds II

I'm not sure which piece of news surprises me more: that Reality Pump intends to make another Two Worlds game "over the next 36 months," or that the studio is continuing to spend time on Two Worlds II with a new engine update and multiple D...   read

Review: Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide

Left 4 Dead is one of my favourite games. The summer of 2009 was spent staying up until five o’clock in the morning, playing the same campaigns with the same group of friends, and it was by far the most fun I’ve ever had with a ...   read

There's a Kingkiller Chronicle game in the works

Behind George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, Patrick Rothfuss's The Kingkiller Chronicle is probably the most well-regarded current fantasy book series. The former has had plenty of games based on it at this point, including a great...   read

Divinity: Original Sin should be the next great couch co-op game

If I'm going to play Divinity: Original Sin -- and I'm told that I absolutely should -- I'd prefer to do so cooperatively on a single screen. That's the topic at hand for this Enhanced Edition trailer. To recap, Enhanced Edition is its own ...   read

Trine 3 is happening and it sure looks pretty

It has been a long time since the original Trine came out. Heck, in the years since Trine 2's release, the series has faded from the spotlight. Frozenbyte has still been at it, and it shows with this announcement trailer for Trine 3. Color...   read

Guild Wars 2 adding first-person mode

Typically, MMOs are third-person affairs and for good reason. Whenever you find yourself in any dangerous persistent world, you want a good idea of what's around you to have the best possible view of the battlefield. Well, some aren't conte...   read

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 from the typical m...   read

Holy summoned triceratops, Lost Ark looks fantastic
