Usually I don’t tend to talk about game sales a lot or ever, but I wanted to touch on Borderlands 3′ recent success as it speaks volumes for the future of digital games and Epic Games Store as a whole.
In the past, I’ve heard of a mod in Dota called Autochess, in which players play a game with similar concept to chess, along with characters from Dota 2. Sporting up to eight players, the game assigns them to eight different chessboards and goal is to be the last man standing. Valve became aware of this concept and although they couldn’t come to an agreement with the creators of this mod, they then took it upon themselves to create a brand new game based on the same concept.
For months now Epic Games have been making moves in the digital store landscape, buying up every game they can get their hands on and locking them away behind their exclusivity walls, much to the disapproval of gamers. Their business practice comes off as strong-arming the players to use their platforms while developers get to enjoy a nice 88% revenue split. However, is it really such a bad thing?
Well, the wait is finally over! Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice is now available to everyone to buy and suffer at their leisure! I decided to pick up my copy on Steam and I’ve put in about 10 hours into the game thus far. I know it may not be much, but I still wanted to share my thoughts and opinion on Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice.
One of the new titles that was revealed at February’s Nintendo direct, which I neglected at first was ONINAKI, a single player experience that deals with the concept of reincarnation.
Competition in any industry is good! It keeps everyone involved in their toes and forces you to improve on your craft! Valve, after years of reigning as King, is beginning to realize that Epic Games isn’t playing around. It’s coming for that throne.
If you’re new here then you probably don’t know this but once in a while, I like to feature games that I think you guys might find cool and share them with you. Today, we looking at Araní, a 3D hack & Slash single-player game for PC, Xbox and PlayStation, in which the players take the role of Arani, a tribal warrior in a journey to save her tribe from ancient mythological power.
Once in a while, I like to feature or talk about a game that grabs my interests and Draugen is that game. Now what caught my attention about Draugen was the fact that 1. it’s claiming to have a realistic and dynamic dialogue system with a living, breathing, independent companion, 2. it looks beautiful visually and has an interesting atmosphere to it and 3. it was co-founded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union so it could be something special.
Over the week, I started playing a game called Battlerite. It was free to play game on steam and I decided to give it a shot. A few hours later, I found myself still wanting to play one more game.
