Soldak’s spunky action-RPG Din’s Curse is getting its first expansion today with the release of Demon War. Din’s Curse was already bubbling over with single-player and co-op action for PC and Mac with 141 class combinations, an infinite number of dynamically generated towns, a unique focus on consequences, and a dynamic world. The expansion adds even more, including the Demon Hunter class, three new demon species and eight new types, new quests, more world modifiers, and most importantly, a raging demon war!
Right when I thought that I wasn’t going to be able to whip enemies into an explosive barrel before spraying their body full of lead, here comes Bulletstorm to let me know that sometimes life really is fair. Developed by People Can Fly, known for their delightful Painkiller series, in conjunction with Epic Games, Bulletstorm is now available for the 360, PC, and PS3.
We are big fans of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, but up until now, its Renaissance goodness has been limited to the 360 and PS3. Well, come March 22, all of that will change when Brotherhood hits store shelves and download outlets for the PC. Ezio continues his war with the Templars in Brotherhood, taking the fight to their stronghold: Rome. In the process, he becomes a Master Assassin and recruits pupils of his own, who, like the various guilds about the city, will come to his aid when called. The single-player adventure is a wild ride, but the game gets even better online, when everyone dons a costume and hides amongst hordes of AI-controlled characters in an effort to snuff out their target before they fall under another’s blade.
The Helghast are a determined lot. After two sound beatings—by me, at least—they are back at the ISA’s throats with the newly launched Killzone 3. But things are a bit different this time as the Helghast are now leaderless, thanks to us and the ISA in Killzone 2, and warring between themselves. Stuck in the middle of a civil war, with no hope of reinforcements or supplies, players must fight their way out with their ISA brethren. All is not lost, though, as there will be a new WASP missile launcher, jet packs, Intruders, and new melee system to fight back the Helghast hordes.
The Shogun 2 demo announced last week has launched on Steam. Instead of the series’ traditional approach of featuring one of the standalone battles, Shogun 2’s demo will allow players to go through the Chosokabe tutorial campaign, which includes “different types of land warfare” and the battle of Sekigahara.
Knights Contract, Namco Bandai’s latest action-adventure title for the 360 and PS3, is now on store shelves.
Players will follow the story of the immortal executioner Heinrich and his servant, the resurrected witch Gretchen, as they use scythe and sorcery to rid 17th-century Europe of an evil force cursing the people with the black spell of death.
