Sony explains how Bloodborne’s multiplayer will work

If you have played a From Software title like Demon’s Soul or Dark Souls, you know that multiplayer is slightly different from a lot of other games. Bloodborne bears some similarities but there is a critical difference. You can set a password on your game session, meaning only people with the password can join the game. Hooray private matches for co-op content! Characters use a Beckoning Bel...

Check out this crazy 1D dungeon crawler

Sometimes we go for games based on ultra-realism, or their pretty cel shading. But how often do you play a game that becomes a chore because it is so realistic? Sometimes the element of fun is gone. Robin Baumgarten made Line Wobbler, a 1D dungeon crawler, after watching his cat stick its paw under a door to play with the spring on the other end. The game uses a springy joystick to control your he...

Video: Ashes of the Singularity shows thousands of units on screen

A Supreme Commander styled RTS is coming from Stardock called Ashes of the Singularity and the unit counts are pretty mind-boggling. No that isn’t marketing hyperbole. You can have a lot of units on screen at the same time. The video is very much a massive advert for AMD and its technologies, but it gives us a chance to see some gameplay and some massive armies fighting it out with some pret...

Elder Scrolls Online has a 20GB patch, brings fixes and justice system

The Elder Scrolls Online just got its biggest patch to date, which will finally implement the justice system and prepares the game for its new business model. It also brings a long, long list of balance changes, fixes and improved tutorials. The justice system adds criminal elements to the game, like murder and theft. Stolen goods can only be sold to a fence and a bounty on your head will mean the...

Video: Which engine looks the best?

The Game Developers Conference has companies pitting their game engines against each other, with each trying to have the sexiest, most mind-blowing eye candy possible. Unreal Engine 4 is pretty exciting, with no fee to use, and a 5% royalty on shipped games. Unity 5’s Personal Edition is for free with no strings attached, while the Professional Edition is $75 per month of $1,500 which might ...

Video: Evolve getting an Observer Mode

What happens when you are a group of six friends and you want to watch a game? Or how will competitive games be streamed? Currently the game is pretty limited in this regard, and unless a player streams their gameplay, there isn’t a proper way to watch a game. Now an Observer Mode is on the way, which allows a sixth player to join the match and switch between multple camera options and bounc...

Cluster is a local free game that costs a lot of time

Who wants a free game? Wait, who doesn’t want a free game? Cluster is a race against time, a speedy, noisy game that involves you controlling a little spaceship. Your ship, reminiscent of that doomed vessel in Asteroids, has no guns but can bash through blocks when travelling at full speed. There are blocks that can kill you regardless of your speed and the world behind you is being destroye...

Review: Hand of Fate (PC)

A roguelike action-RPG hidden away in a deck of cards is just as exciting as it sounds.

The next Warhammer 40,000 game is… a MOBA?

The brutal, endless conflict of a future war. Warhammer 40,000’s universe is a grim, dark place where everyone is trying to kill or eat you. Which makes it a great setting for just about any game, as the war, the lore and the various forces at play are rich nodes just waiting to be mined, to be revealed to the world. Aiming for the war angle, the next game from this grim setting will be a MO...

The Legacy of Kain that could have been

Do you have 30 minutes to spare? I remember growing up that one of my favourite titles was Soul Reaver. It introduced me to the Legacy of Kain series, with its proper voice acting by famous people and large explorable levels with dark, twisted puzzle elements. Then it all stopped. A game that was supposed to be made for the last gen of consoles, Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun, was canned in 2012 due to ...

Kickstarter for local game goes live. Enter Cadence

Do you like puzzles? Do you like music and pretty sounds? Of course you do! Now for the clincher: Do you support local talent? Yeah, that’s a tougher question, right? For some reason, a lot of us see “Made in SA” as a sticker of shame rather than a badge of pride. SA musicians come to mind, but let me not dwell on that. Last year at AMAZE Jhb, I had some time to fiddle around wit...
