THQ Nordic reveal new studio making Gothic Remake

THQ Nordic announced today that they’ve established a new studio to make Gothic Remake, a fancy modern take on the fantasy RPG from 2001. This is the do-over they first revealed with a ‘playable teaser’ in 2019, which they released supposedly to gauge whether it was worth continuing. Based in Barcelona, Alkimia Interactive actually started up in summer 2020, but now THQ Nordic are out here shouting about the paperwork being settled. Read more

Chronos: Before The Ashes review

Chronos: Before The Ashes review A substandard soulslike that’s actually a port of the VR original. I’d say you’re better off ditching this version and getting your Oculus on. Developer: Gunfire Games, THQ Nordic Publisher: THQ Nordic Release: Out now On: Windows From: Steam Price: £25/€27/$27 I think Chronos: Before The Ashes is very much okay. It’s a prequel to looter shooter Remnant: From The Ashes, but it trades gun-toting, chest-pillaging action for a soulslike experience so grey, I swear my pulse flatlined a few times. It was also previously an Oculus VR exclusive, so the version I played is…

Remnant: From The Ashes labyrinthian prequel arrives today

A couple of years ago, Darksiders developers Gunfire Games released Remnant: From The Ashes. It’s a third-person apocalyptic shooter that’s a little bit Dark Souls-y and a little bit roguelite-y, and it’s pretty good. It’s not the sort of thing I expected to get any sort of follow-up, mind you, but lo and behold, Gunfire are launching a prequel today. Named Chronos: Before The Ashes, it’s dumping guns for swords and dropping players into a labyrinth for some good old RPG action. (more…)

The Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning remaster has arrived

If you’re in the market for a new hack and slash RPG adventure, you’re in the wrong place, because Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-reckoning is technically an old hack and slash RPG adventure. The remaster of the 2012 game came out today, bringing slightly nicer graphics and gameplay to an old fan favourite. There’s a cheeky 50% discount on Steam right now too, if you already own the original game. If only THQ Nordic had given it a slightly nicer name. I’ve already triple-checked that I haven’t written “re” too many times. (more…)

Desperados 3 is now on Mac and Linux, and its first DLC is out

Here’s a fun computing fact for you: the Linux term root is derived from the cowboy term rootin’ tootin’, because the console cowboys who clip-clopped on their mechanical keyboards like a bucking bronco and listened to Fields Of The Nephilim would cry “Yeehaw!” and wave their leather Stetsons when they got system admin rights. How fitting, then, that wonderful Wild West squad tactics game Desperados 3 today launched a Linux version. A Mac version arrived too, so even those city slickers might be tempted by the cowboy lifestyle. The first paid DLC mission is out now too, plus a challenge…

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning looks a lot like Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning

Seeing as not many people played Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning in the first place, let’s just pretend that the impending remaster is a brand new game. Forget that it came out in 2012. Forget that it flopped. Forget that it took its creators down with it. Forget that this all made a disappointed John Walker shout “Why didn’t everyone play Kingdoms Of Amalur?!” Breathe in, breathe out, and… we’re a clean slate. Oh hey look, here comes the first so-called “gameplay trailer” for Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, which might look a fair bit like another World Of Warcraft-esque MMORPG but…
