Games Workshop and their Warhammer intellectual property have had some mixed success through the years with dozens of titles ranging from RTS games to MMOs, and now to the elation of many, Warhammer has firmly stepped into the ARPG realm with Warhammer: Chaosbane. Developed by Eko Software, and published by Bigben Interactive, Chaosbane emphatically pursues a high-quality experience that appeals to both beginners and seasoned ARPG veterans. Does Warhammer: Chaosbane have what it takes to become a champion in the hack and slash genre, or will it go down in history as nothing more than a decrepit nurgling? This is our Warhammer: Chaosbane review. advertisement A Human, a Dwarf, a High-Elf and a Wood-Elf led by the nobleman Magnus, saved the world of men from the Chaos Horde. If that sounds to you like the ending to Warhammer: Chaosbane, take heed for it is only the beginning. The four heroes of Warhammer: Chaosbane, Vollen, Elessa, Bragi and Elontir are the main … [Read more...] about Warhammer Chaosbane Review: Let Chaos Reign!
Play Secret World LegendsAs a fan of the wonderful world that Secret World brought us, do you cringe or grin with excitement when Secret World Legends news pops up? Do you waffle between tell me more and no news is good news? I’ve been on both sides. Who can blame us? We’ve weathered everything from financial woes and the corresponding closure concerns to a complete reboot. And now, we’re experiencing yet another changing of the guard. The Creative Director position that has migrated from Ragnar Tornquist to Joel Bylos to Romain Amiel has been vacated, and a new lead designer is taking over; Amiel left Funcom last month to pursue different endeavors, leaving Chris “Nirvelle” Meredith in charge. You can’t have a big change like this without people worrying that something will happen to their favorite conspiracy-laden game; it’s inevitable, like the sass of Kirsten Geary. The big question is, will this latest development in the structure of … [Read more...] about Chaos Theory: A changing of the guard in the Secret World Legends
Set aside your French history knowledge for a sec and consider the phrase Reign of Terror in a new light: a light that also falls on Diablo merch. That’s because, as Resetera noticed early this morning, the Blizzard gear store barfed up a bunch of new Diablo stuff, including a poster and tees bearing the “Diablo Reign of Terror” branding. Interestingly, when I saw this pop up, I, like one of the Resetera commenters, could’ve sworn that Reign of Terror was already a Diablo expansion name, but that’s a mis-memory apparently, likely a product of the fact that these dumb words get reused for expansions all the time. As it turns out, Reign of Chaos was used for Warcraft III, and Terror’s End is the last arc of Diablo II, so maybe there’s a connection. Or maybe Blizz is just referring to how long Diablo has been a major force in video games in order to sell shirts. Orrrrrr maybe it’s something to do with the new Diablo stuff the studio’s … [Read more...] about Diablo ‘Reign of Terror’ merch in Blizz store revives speculation on Diablo IV
We’re only a day away from the release of EverQuest II’s 15th expansion, Chaos Descending, which will take players across the elemental planes of Norrath as they vie to restore balance to the universe. Daybreak Games has announced that the EQII servers will be going down tomorrow, November 13th, at 10:00 a.m. EST to deploy the expansion, which the devs estimate should take about five hours, with servers going back up around 3:00 p.m. EST. We know that the last stretch before the release of a much-awaited expansion feels agonizingly long, but Daybreak has just the thing to tide players over: previews of the elemental Planes of Air and Water. Players will be flying high in the Plane of Air, where they’ll visit Eryslai, the Kingdom of Wind, where Xegony, Queen of Air, reigns over “creatures of flight and beings of air and light.” They’ll also have to delve deep below into the Plane of Water, where they’ll venture into Awuidor, the Unresting … [Read more...] about EverQuest II previews the Planes of Air and Water in anticipation of tomorrow’s Chaos Descending launch
