Marvel and Square Enix team up for new Avengers project.

I’ve always wondered why there seemed to be a lack of superhero games in the last few years and apparently, somebody at Square Enix thought the same. Earlier today we got our first teaser for Square Enix and Marvel’s new partnership, which you can find below.

Microsoft exclusive Scalebound no longer in development.

It’s always a sad day to see a game that you were looking forward to get canceled. Sadly, Platinum Games’ Scalebound, previously announced exclusively for Xbox One and PC has been the latest to fall victim to this fate. Microsoft today confirmed:

“After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound,” a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement to Polygon. “We’re working hard to deliver an amazing lineup of games to our fans this year, including Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves and other great experiences.”

Scalebound genuinely looked interesting, and we had seen gameplay as recently as E3 2016. It’s strange and somewhat disheartening for Xbox One owners, and I hope we see hints of Scalebound’s mechanics in the future.

Curious about Scalebound? Check out the gameplay from E3 2016 below the cut!  Continue reading…

First screenshots from Blood and Wine, the second expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD PROJEKT RED, right off the heels of their wins at The Game Awards, have announced the second expansion for Witcher 3, and man. They’ve started it out strong.

CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, have just released the first two screenshots from the upcoming expansion to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt — Blood and Wine. The expansion is slated for release in the first half of 2016. The studio has also announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has collectively garnered over 300 awards, including a Golden Joystick for Ultimate Game of the Year, and The Game Award for Game of the Year.

“2015 is almost behind us. It’s a great year for open world games and a fantastic time for The Witcher. A year of intense work for the team and a time filled with many personal victories for everyone involved in a project that received more than 300 awards so far (wow!). We overcame so many obstacles to get to this point, and we’ve always done it with gamers rooting for us. It’s your year, too!,” said Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, Game Director, CD PROJEKT RED. “Blood and Wine, the second expansion for The Witcher 3, is on the horizon.

IRVINE, Calif. – Dec. 5, 2015 – The 1980s in Japan were defined by unprecedented amounts of decadent overindulgence – and nothing was out of greed’s reach, especially in Kamurocho.
