  3. The company that both develops and publishes the popular MMO Black Desert Online has announced that CCP Games will be coming into its fold. The move will have CCP Games' three studios in Reykjavik, London, and Shanghai continue operations independently for the foreseeable future, so worry not EVE Online fans! Going forward, Pearl Abyss will be combining the skills of CCP with its current projects, presumably meaning Black Desert, as well as future projects on the horizon. EVE Online has been going strong since 2003, 15 years of ever larger space conflicts, political backstabbing, and economic swindling. The space-faring RPG is one of the biggest MMOs in North America and Europe, markets the South Korean Pearl Abyss has been attempting to expand into over the past few years. The CEO of Pearl Abyss, Robin Jung, said about the acquisition, "We are thrilled to have CCP Games join our team as Black Desert Online continues to branch out globally. CCP is a seasoned publisher with over 15 years of digital distribution experience and know-how. They have done an incredible job of engaging and maintaining their playerbase, which we aim to learn from and hope to integrate natively into Pearl Abyss’ general practices across all our games. I am confident CCP’s reputable IP and expertise in global publishing will help reaffirm our company’s dedication to developing and servicing the world’s best MMORPGs.”“I have been seriously impressed with what Pearl Abyss has achieved ever since I first visited their website for Black Desert Online and subsequently became an avid player of the game,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, the CEO at CCP Games. “Pearl Abyss is a fast-growing company with lots to offer in terms of technology, capability and vision. I believe our two companies have a lot to learn from each other. We are very excited to join forces with them and achieve great new heights for our companies, our games and – above all - our players.” Pearl Abyss has been riding high since the 2014 launch of Black Desert Online. It has overseen successful expansions of the game into markets outside of South Korea over the years and recently launched Black Desert Mobile in South Korea, pushing it into a record sales year. Of course, this is also helped by the recent launch of Black Desert Online Remastered, which gives a whole new level of shine to the aging MMO.

  7. Extra Life's annual Tabletop Appreciation Weekend has arrived! In honor of the weekend, we have put together a short campaign with Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition called Dragonguard. Join Naomi Lugo (Nomsooni the druid), Marcus Stewart (Scratch Mangy the ranger), and Kyle Gaddo (Barphus the bard) as they don the armor of the illustrious Dragonguard, sworn to defend and protect the realm of Alterra from the dragons at their doorstep. Jack Gardner serves as the Dungeon Master, guiding our heroes through their journey. Following a dangerous encounter in the night, our heroes stumble upon a colossal dragon skull in the middle of the Morrithil Wastes, a swamp near the village of Verne. A village on stilts sits in the shadow of the long-dead terror. What secrets might lay in store there for those who call themselves members of the Dragonguard? If you want to get a sense of how great a time tabletop roleplaying can be, you're invited to enjoy the adventure along with us. The initial plan was to play through this self-contained adventure in one sitting and post the entire campaign on Tabletop Appreciation Weekend. However, in true organic roleplaying fashion, it turned into so much more. This weekend will see the release of six episodes covering the adventures of the Dragonguard as they investigate signs of a possible dragon invasion.

The adventure begins with three newly trained members of the guard on the road to the small village of Verne where draconic activity has been sighted. Kobolds move far from their swampy homes, people have gone missing, and tensions are running high in the lead up to the queen's annual festival in honor of her coronation.

  13. Dewey Owens has a strange internship. He's not overly important in the grand scheme of things, just another cog in the corporate machine of DevTech... until the fire nation aliens attacked Earth. Now Dewey must enter the Hypergun Simulation, a technology designed to find the best weapon configuration to defeat the invaders and save the world. Each time Dewey enters the simulation, it will be entirely different from the last attempt to defeat the simulated alien threat. The FPS gameplay seems reminiscent of classics like Doom crossed with the RPGness of the Borderlands series. As players progress toward finding the perfect weapon, Dewey will pick up over 150 different augmentations for the titular hypergun. This leads to a dazzling number of weapon configurations with which players can experiment. To add even more spice into the mix, players can unlock additional powers and abilities by gaining access to Dewey's co-worker's accounts. There are over 40 of these, so players will have to poke around and really push themselves to find them all. The neon color palate and bright flashes seem ideal for people who looked at Tron and thought it wasn't "Extra(tm)" enough. You can also explore DevTech's offices and find passive-aggressive sticky notes. I can dig it. Hypergun releases on August 23 for PC and later this fall for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

  17. Chucklefish, the developer/publisher known for its work on Starbound and Stardew Valley, announced a partnership with Shanghai developer Pixpil to bring the post-apocalyptic adventure Eastward to audiences everywhere. Eastward has humble beginnings as an independent project built by Pixpil's three founding members around the work of pixel artist Hong Moran's mesmerizing work. The game stands as a love letter to classics like Earthbound and The Legend of Zelda. It's a narrative heavy experience mixed with action-RPG elements. The adventure takes place in the not-too-distant future at a point when the human population has shrunk to dangerously low levels and monsters stalk the husks of abandoned cities. Players take on the role of John, a digger who unearths a hidden facility beneath his mine. In that facility, he finds a mysterious white-haired girl. This discovery sets John on a path that will take him away from his village and through countless dangers. Since the company's founding in 2015, Pixpil has grown along with the scope of Eastward. The developer has brought on Joel Corelitz, the composer of The Unfinished Swan and Gorgogoa, to compose the soundtrack and the ever-amazing Hyperduck Soundworks to handle sound design. There's no release date quite yet, but the trailer certainly has a lot of phenomenal pixel animations that are a real joy to see in motion.

  19. Square Enix continues the trickle of Kingdom Hearts III news with a new trailer that shows off a collection of mini-games based on the handheld LCD systems that were popular in the 80s. Players take on the role of Sora and Mickey as they complete various tasks related to original Mickey Mouse cartoons from back in the day. The trailer shows four different mini-games titled The Barnyard Battle, The Karnival Kid, Giantland, and Musical Farmer, respectively. The Classic Kingdom trailer comes courtesy of the Kingdom Hearts Union X fan event being held in Anaheim, California. Kingdom Hearts III will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The release date has not officially been revealed quite yet, though there are hints that it could be coming sooner rather than later. I'd put money on us learning that information sometime during E3 2018.

  21. 3Mind Games might not be a developer many have heard of before now, but that could change in the near future. The studio has just announced their first game titled The Protagonist, a narrative-oriented RPG that offers turn-based tactics and divergent story paths in an original sci-fi universe. The team at 3Mind describes the gameplay as a mix between XCOM and Divinity: Original Sin. If that's not enough to get your attention, I don't know what will. The Protagonist stars a galactic special agent who operates under the codename ANGEL. The military force of Terra has come into conflict with the KL-T, a mysterious fleet of robotic ships and soldiers. On a mission to infiltrate and destroy a major space station claimed by the invading KL-T, ANGEL finds herself knocked unconscious and awakens in the space station's infirmary at the heart of the space station with no memory of what has happened. With the station in full lockdown and hostiles around every corner, players have to decide how to escape from the heart of this imposing enemy stronghold while piecing together what happened. Along the way, players can recruit allies who may or may not be loyal to ANGEL's mission. How you treat party members and other NPCs can either benefit you in the long run or hinder your progress or unlock new routes and opportunities. Those who aren't attentive during conversations could be in for some nasty surprises. The Protagonist uses a combat system called Martial Arts Combat System (MACS). This system allows players to customize their hand-to-hand combat abilities. The customization is intended to be so deep that players will be able to create new combos and then share them online with other players. 3Mind Games formed out of development veterans from major studios in the industry like EA and Ubisoft. They're hoping to capture the spirit of Mass Effect inside an indie game package that could roll over into a long-running series. The first trailer for The Protagonist shows ANGEL in action alongside her companion RADICAL, an explosives specialist. The Protagonist will release for PC sometime in 2019.
  22. 3Mind Games might not be a developer many have heard of before now, but that could change in the near future. The studio has just announced their first game titled The Protagonist, a narrative-oriented RPG that offers turn-based tactics and divergent story paths in an original sci-fi universe.

  23. In 1994, the now defunct LJN made a major play to break away from its well-known industry niche of adapting popular movie franchises into video games. The result of their labor was Revengent Star, an ambitious and strange RPG that hoped to compete with the likes of Final Fantasy and Breath of Fire. While unconfirmed, the effort put into the creation of Revengent Star was widely suspected to have led to the eventual downfall of LJN. The technology used to create the unique cartridges the game required proved to be costly leading to precious few copies released. Most copies were only sold to rental stores (remember those??) as part of an agreement that forbid resale. With all of that being said, what has the small group of people who have played the game so enamored with it? Join us this week for a trip down memory lane to answer the question: Is Revengent Star one of the best games period? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon 'Only Link Can Do the Duck Walk' by Hylian Lemon (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03695) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes.

  25. Armor Games Studios, publisher of indie gems like Sonny and Pinstripe, and developer Massive Monster have announced that The Adventure Pals will be releasing early next month. The zany co-op platformer sends a pair of kids off on an adventure to save their grandpa from being turned into a hot dog. Players take on the role of one of the kids, either solo or in co-op, and ride off to do battle against the forces of wackness on the backs of their trusty giraffe steeds. Over the course of their adventure, they'll give semi sentient cupcakes to cats, make friends with rocks, and do battle against a whole host of strange baddies. The Adventure Pals features over 100 levels spread across five worlds. Each world holds a variety of quests and characters that range from zombie pirate cats to hot dogs that squelch out land mines to a very large and very insecure whale. Completing quests will level the adventure pals up and open ever more powerful abilities. As part of the announcement, Armor Games Studios and Massive Monster have released a 10-minute gameplay preview that you can view below: The Adventure Pals releases on April 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC with a Switch version coming soon after that date.
