Naraka: Bladepoint collaborates with Fall Guys for crossover event, available now

Crossover that I didn’t expect to see today introduces Fall Guys’ chaos to Naraka: Bladepoint. Naraka: Bladepoint is a battle-royale that revolves around wielding your melee weapon, and somehow, the game is collaborating with Fall Guys for a crossover event. While this is a crossover that I certainly didn’t expect to see this morning, the teaser trailer for the event makes the collaboration seem almost seamless, once the bean exits the arena. The crossover event will be introducing new game mode, Through the Fire, to Naraka: Bladepoint. Throughout the mode, multiple swinging pendulums are present which can easily send you…

Total War: Three Kingdoms and FIFA 22 lead June’s new Xbox Game Pass games

I don’t buy every iteration of FIFA, but I do want to give each entry a whirl to see how it has rebalanced the balls, tweaked the kicks, and polished the grass. Xbox Game Pass now helps me in my tests by, eventually, adding each iteration, and FIFA 22 is now available through the subscription service as part of June’s haul of new games. Also added this past week: the Shadowrun Trilogy, Total War: Three Kingdoms, Naraka: Bladepoint. And Far Cry 5 will arrive on July 1st. Read more

Cyberpunk 2077 manages to be a top seller on Steam in 2021

A terrible beginning didn’t stop the RPG from CD Projekt Red from ultimately being successful. Kotaku reported some interesting tidbits from Valve’s recent stat dump for Steam, most notably that Cyberpunk 2077 quietly became a top seller in 2021. This might come as a surprise to many, as CD Projekt Red’s game has been controversial for being buggy and unfinished. That might be turning around, though. While the very top of the charts are populated by games like New World, Valheim, and Naraka: Bladepoint that generate revenue continuously even after someone starts the game, Cyberpunk managed to make the Silver…

Naraka: Bladepoint review: a punishing battle royale that rewards perseverance

A prolonged, evenly-matched fight in Naraka: Bladepoint is a thing of beauty. Picture two combatants, each equipped with grappling hooks and panache, twirling across a sun-dappled battlefield. They’re locked in a mind game of slashes, somersaults and parries, both attempting to provoke a misstep that will spell either instant death or the beginning of a chase. Now picture the latter, as they bound across rooftops or treetops, the hunted party ducking and diving, desperate to steal enough time and space to pop a healing potion. This is proper Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Stuff. I like it a lot. I’d also…

Naraka: Bladepoint looks like Sekiro battle royale

There’s a lot of shooting in battle royale games isn’t there? I mean, I’m all for it given how much I play all Of Duty: Warzone but I’ve wondered how cool it would be if games like Sekiro or Nioh received last-man-standing, PVP modes. And it seems like my wish has been granted, as a trailer for Naraka: Bladepoint shows off an East Asian-themed battle royale with grappling hooks, slick melee combat, and big monsters. Read more
