Blizzard Announces Overwatch, A Team Based First Person Shooter.

Overwatch_Poster_Final

At Blizcon this weekend, Blizzard announced their first new IP in almost 17 years. That game is called Overwatch, a FPS that kind of looks like a fresh take on the whole Team Fortress 2 formula coming to the PC. They released this absolutely incredible cinematic trailer for the game, that honestly looks like something Pixar could have made, yes it is that good, take a look below. Nobody does cinematics like Blizzard, just amazing.

Currently they have announced 12 playable characters for the game, all with their own gameplay style and unique feel. There seems to be your classic tanks, and medics, alongside newer more exotic type characters like an archer and a samurai looking character. Battles take place in a variety of levels, and usually have some sort of team-play element besides just kill the other team. There appears to be capture and hold, some defend this area, and I am hearing there is even a Protect this thing as we move through the level type mission. They look to be trying to have a good variety in the gameplay and with the large character roster a little something for everyone. You can check out some gameplay in the trailer below.

This is pretty huge stuff, as Blizzard hasn’t made a completely new IP in a LONG time. I think Diablo was the last new IP that Blizzard had created and every game that they have made since then has either been a sequal, or a game using an existing IP; Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm etc. The fact that we are finally seeing Blizzard doing something that is not only new, but also something they have never done before; they have never made a FPS game, is very exciting. If Blizzard can give this the same kind of love and polish that we have seen from them in the past, well that is a very exciting thought. I can’t wait to get my hands on Overwatch and give it a try.

If you are as excited about this as I am, you can sign up for the closed beta coming early next year, right over here,on the Official Website.

We also have some screenshots for your viewing pleasure as well below.

No release date has been set, and no platform besides the PC has been announced as of yet.

Alien: Isolation Officially Announced, Looking To Head Back To The Survival Horror Roots

Alien Isolation gorsel

So it is no secret that the last Alien game, Aliens: Colonial Marines was not very good, but it appears that Sega wants to try again. This time they have decided to go in a different direction, and they are hoping to scare the pants off you in this upcoming survival horror game.

According to the press release, Alien: Isolation is set 15 years after the events of Alien and you play as Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, as she searches for the truth behind her mother’s disappearance. Going to a survival horror game should bring back more of  the feeling from the movie, and I am hoping that it will make for a much better game then the last one.

You can check out the release trailer for Alien: Isolation below.


Alien: Isolation is slated to be released sometime in Fall 2014 for the PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3.  You can find out more from their Website.

The Night of the Rabbit, PC Review.

The Night of the Rabbit cover

Night of the Rabbit is sort of like a cross between Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland. Daedalic Entertainment does a wonderful job of capturing the wonder and excitement of being a child and manages to add in just enough mystery and whimsy to take you on a memorable journey. This is a beautiful game that can be enjoyed by a wide range of people, both young and old, with only a few pacing and illogical puzzle issues stopping it from being a classic.

Night of the Rabbit Screen 1

You start the game as a young boy, Jerry Hazelnut, who wishes for nothing more than to be a wizard. It is this boy’s imagination that leads him into the woods near, what appears to be, an early 20th century British city. It is in these woods, that Jerry Hazelnut meets the mysterious rabbit magician, Marquis, who then offers young Jerry Hazelwood the chance to become a real magician. From this begins a journey, filled with characters, who do a wonderful job of fleshing out the story. Many hold secrets of magic and ancient mystery. Very rarely are you sure of the intentions of the characters you meet, and quite often you will be left wondering if they are friend or foe, and what exactly is your role in this mysterious world. The story uses a unique method of using the regular world and a different, “magical” world, which are like two different sides of the same coin. Both worlds go a long way in conveying the duality of everything and create a fantastic feeling of magic, mystery, and intrigue.

Night of the Rabbit screen 2

The art style and direction in this game are fantastic, which is a big reason why I was drawn to it in the first place. The artists have managed to capture the feeling of being young and full of wonder in the art. The sheer creativity here, as well as the detail, look like something out of a children’s book. They chose to use bright, vivid colours, and they have filled the environments with plenty of detail. The love and attention given to the art, only gets more awe inspiring the deeper into the story you get. They also manage to keep the locations varied and fresh as the game goes on, from forests and fields, to snowy mountains, and others.

Night of the Rabbit screen 4

Before you get to this wonderful art and intriguing story though, you have to start at the beginning. This unfortunately, is a bit of a slow starter. There is quite a bit of reading and using a radio to go over the tutorial with you felt a bit odd. The way this game starts off, and the visuals, would almost make you think this game was aimed at younger kids, but due in part to the difficulty of some of the puzzles, as well as how vast the story becomes, tells me that was not the target audience.

Night of the Rabbit screen 3

Night of the Rabbit is a point and click adventure game, and if you have ever played this type of game, you understand that sometimes these games can get confusing, and at times, downright frustrating. Sometimes it is about what stick you picked up and who you gave it to, or the order in which you did it. More often than not, it is less about solving a puzzle, and more about trying every talk, give, set down, and pick up every combination you can think of. For example, near the beginning, you are given a quest via a slightly confusing riddle, and expected to figure it out. In order to do so, you need to do this quest in a very specific order, do it out of order and it doesn’t work, so a bit of trial and error is needed. Now this isn’t indicative of every quest, as most make sense as to how to continue, but there were a few that left me scratching my head and trying to endlessly click though everything, wasting my time and impeding my progress. Now this wouldn’t be such an issue, but the “hint” feature borders on useless. Besides explaining what your main goal is, well that’s really all it does. If you are stuck, it does very little to help nudge you in the right direction, this left me on a few occasions wishing that it helped more than it did.

Night of the Rabbit screen 5

But the few adventure game niggles aside, this is a game that is rewarding to play, and has a story that makes you want to see it through. The pace starts with so many questions, and throughout the game, you want to keep moving forward to see how those will be answered. There are some genuinely unique and original characters, and the writing is superb and wonderfully believable. The story has some wonderful twists and turns, and they go far in creating a magical and memorable journey.

Night of the Rabbit Screen 6

Few games these days try so hard to tell such a unique and whimsical tale. The story of a boy growing up, learning, and battling the forces that would seek to corrupt him. This is not a game for everyone, but if you can look past the few adventure game frustrations, and the slow start, you will be treated to a magical world, incredible art, great voice acting, brilliant score, and a story worth sticking around for. Few games have made me feel like a little kid again, discovering a new world, like this game has.

Night of the Rabbit screen 7 Night of the Rabbit screen 8

Night of the Rabbit is available now on Steam for PC and Mac.

Score 7.5/10
