  1. Blizzard is infamous for having high internal quality standards, though these exacting standards sometimes come with a price. It often takes an unbearably long time for sequels and new IP to hit store shelves, but they have traditionally proven worth the wait. Blizzard's titles generally achieve exceedingly strong Metacritic scores, and years-old games like StarCraft 2, Overwatch, and the reigning MMO champion, World of Warcraft, continue to be extremely popular in 2019. Nevertheless, many would argue this ethic translates to a fear of branching out, preventing Blizzard from experimenting with existing franchises and taking chances on edgy offshoots. According to a report from Kotaku, a proposed StarCraft shooter spin-off is the latest casualty of Blizzard's internal review process. According to the report, the StarCraft spin-off was in development for two years before getting canned. The original StarCraft debuted in 1998, and the series remains one of Blizzard's most popular franchises. Though StarCraft is generally seen a cornerstone in the real time strategy genre, this cancelled title switched gears to provide a first-person shooting experience built on the Overwatch engine. The report's sources describe the cancelled title as StarCraft meets Battlefield, which certainly makes us all wistfully bittersweet regarding what could have been. Though there are a million reasons any game could get cancelled, the report suggests the entire team moved to development of Diablo IV and Overwatch 2, two games which are not yet officially announced; this also means nobody lost their jobs as a result of the StarCraft cancellation. As for the prospective Diablo and Overwatch sequels, fans expecting to see either game at E3 shouldn't hold their breath; they are instead rumored to make their debut at BlizzCon in November, at the earliest. Countless video games get cancelled every year, but this one, in particular, hurts more than most. This isn't the first StarCraft spin-off to bite the dust; back in 2002, issue #115 of Game Informer announced StarCraft: Ghost, a PlayStation 2/Xbox/Gamecube spin-off of the ever-popular sci-fi RTS franchise. Sadly, after years of delays and development troubles, the game all but disappeared by the end of the decade. Still, it wasn't until 2014 that Blizzard co-founder Mike Morhaime confirmed the game had been, indeed, cancelled. Despite being cancelled, StarCraft: Ghost remains canon in the larger StarCraft storyline, and the novelization of the game, written by Keith R.A. DeCandido, was published in 2006. It's unclear if the cancelled StarCraft shooter was far enough into development to have a comprehensive storyline yet, but one has to wonder if any ideas from the game will make their way into future projects from Blizzard.

  3. Titan Quest may have been out for over a decade, but it has just released on consoles for the first time. Players can now experience the Diablo-like ARPG based on mythologies from around the world. Crafted by Brian Sullivan, one of the co-creators of Age of Empires, players travel across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia in an attempt to stop the long imprisoned Titans from destroying the planet. With the help of the gods themselves, it might just be possible. Titan Quest is notable for its story having been written by Randall Wallace, the mind behind the film Braveheart. The console version features completely overhauled graphics that bring the 2006 game up to modern graphical standards. It also supports online co-op play for up to six players. That's right, up to five of your friends can run around the ancient world doing battle with mythical creatures. With controls remapped to console gamepads, it's never been easier to play. Titan Quest is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Nintendo Switch version is currently in development, but the official word is that it will be released when it is done. A couch co-op mode is also on the way. What do you think? Will you be picking up Titan Quest? View full article

  5. If you are looking for your isometric action-RPG fix after running Diablo 3 for the 100th time, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard might be the upcoming game for you. Thrust into the middle of Midgard while Ragnarok, the end of all things, rages around players must fight to survive against giants, the undead, and the very gods themselves. Players take on the role of a warrior or shieldmaiden chief of the Ulfung clan, the Wolves of Midgard, facing the oncoming storm of Ragnarok. The Jotan have returned to the world for the final battle with the gods of Asgard and in their wake the dead rise. The Fire and Frost giants have forged an alliance and merged their armies. With a the only home the Ulfung have ever called home destroyed, players will lead their people to safety and put an end to Ragnarok to save Midgard. Wolves of Midgard seems to take a lot of cues from Diablo. Players can take up sword and shield, two-handed hammers, dual axes, and bows in defense of their clan. As progress is made, players can also learn and unleash devastating spells granted by the very gods. Vikings: Wolves of Midgard releases in early 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
