Hey guys and gals James here aka Wade D McGinnis! Again I have come to show off another review. Is your pitchfork ready? This time, Hyper Light Drifter. A indie top down kickstarted action game that leans visually and mechanically on older titles like Legend of Zelda. Having challenging and precise combat with a vague story. You are put into a world with a sickness and need to figure out how to find a cure by murdering the local bosses. Check the review and let me know your thoughts!

Two New Classes Coming To Black Desert Online Next Week Killing Floor 2 gets Versus multiplayer in Revenge of the Zeds update I played some of this when it first released, the new mode is buggy but fun and there new adaptable difficulty for the regular game just seems to have unbalanced the boss from what I could see after playing four or five games. The two new guns are enjoyable to use.

In the statement he also mentioned the need to fix bugs and multiplayer issues, and said that they would now be giving the transgender character an even larger role in the game with a future update, which should make the very few people who actually thought that the inclusion was a token one happy while upsetting the people who were clearly pretending that was the reason they were upset (like below) or the ones who were blatantly just against having transgender characters in games. Their announcement has upset science fiction writer Vox Day, a white supremacist and someone who talks about why giving women the right to vote was a mistake, so, good for Beamdog. Multiple Bioware employees (not including the one who just left Bioware to work for Beamdog) and the director and communication manager for D&D (as well as the creator of the setting Ed Greenwood) have also defended Beamdog, so the people saying that Bioware would never have written something like this and who don't know anything about D&D and don't think transgender characters should be in the setting, probably wrong. Even Cliff Bleszinski chimed in with the obvious. Continuing from what she wrote on the subject last week, Katherine Cross wrote, Opinion: So you want to write a trans character. Famed speedrunner Narcissa Wright deletes Twitch account, citing abuse Back in January I linked to an interview with her, One of the World's Best Speedrunners Can't Speedrun Anymore.

Uncharted 4's Technical Art Culture Stories We Tell Star Ocean 5's Producer on Localization Challenges and the Future of Console JRPGs Short and not all that interesting really. The usual about the Japanese market becoming more casual and Japanese devs not being able to keep up with the new technology to make things that aren't casual, obvious reasons for localization changes. He did get asked about making a new Valkyria Profile though I like the first more. FAILURE AND REBIRTH IN BREATH OF FIRE: DRAGON QUARTER Devs Answer: What are the best comments left in your code? Watch Mega Man producer Keiji Inafune make a Mario Maker stage An Examination of Leitmotifs and Their Use to Shape Narrative in UNDERTALE - Part 1 of 2 Why Does Diversity Make You Angry? Why Dark Souls 3 should have an easy mode and the problem with 'playing to win' I don't think the, make it easier, argument is thought all the way through sometimes, not that wanting an easier difficulty is an inherently bad idea or sentiment (the raging gatekeeping fanboys in the comment section might disagree). Doing something like putting in an invincibility mode in the new Star Fox is easy and doesn't alter the actual gameplay, having a story mode setting to not have to worry about combat in something like Pillars of Eternity/Baldurs Gate/Dragon Age makes sense (and Pillars and the new BG expansion do), but making Dark Souls easy would involve looking into what makes it hard for individual people, would it be the bosses, the regular enemies, showing you boss patterns so you don't have to die multiple times and run back to figure them out, falling or being knocked off of cliffs, traps, not playing a character type that seems to be working well for them, etc. An easy Dark Souls mode would likely involve rebuilding areas of the map or repositioning enemies in ways that people who only wanted an easier time in one particular area wouldn't have wanted and could be a much more difficult and time consuming undertaking than adding an easy mode to most games. It's not a bad idea but it's not as simple as just making the enemy do less damage like it is in many games. If the developer believed they had a good way of doing it I'd be all for it.
