Aside from some bugs, Sega's Shenmue 1 and 2 HD remaster was a good release but originally, plans were afoot for an altogether more ambitious project - and you can see it right here.

Fallout: NV - Fallout: New California October Update
Posted: Oct 17, 2018, 03:23 am by RPGWatch

[​IMG]The October update for Fallout: New California has arrived and a countdown timer has appeared for the release of the mod.

[​IMG]


We'll continue to do balance, especially by populating the wasteland with "stuff," during 200 and 201, and supporting the mod. Really going BETA for us, we are done, it's just minor things, and any work you guys want to mod in and we can merge, fixes or more stories or guns, whatever. The core of the mod is there and it's not flawless, obviously, but damn is it fun and full of cool stuff to do.

We got this gigantic branching 12-30 hour single player story that's packed with big tough decisions, we have so many immersive character focused moments, tons of amazing art and voice acting, glorious music that could be a whole mod unto itself, awesome environments -- I'm exited for you to play it. And make mods for it. Just go nuts.

Realms Beyond - Kickstarter Live
Posted: Oct 16, 2018, 09:22 pm by RPGWatch

[​IMG]The Kickstarter for the turn-based RPG Realms Beyond is here and they need 100 KEuro to make the Kickstarter a success.

Here is the Kickstarter video:


[​IMG]

Realms Beyond: Ashes of the Fallen is a fantasy computer role-playing game with turn-based combat and a party system that allows you to control up to six characters at any one time. Whether you yearn for an open world to explore at your own pace, tactical combat that allows you to plan your moves carefully, or want to lose yourself in the rich fabric of our world, trying to survive and make your mark, Realms Beyond offers endless choices, lands to travel, monster-infested dungeons and a host of storylines to follow.

Realms Beyond: Ashes of the Fallen is inspired by the classic RPGs of the 80s and 90s, taking the best elements of the beloved old classics and reforging them into something new in a powerful modern engine. In Realms Beyond, you will find the tactical turn-based combat of the Gold Box Games, Temple of Elemental Evil and Dark Sun, the world exploration and camp management of Realms of Arkania, the interactivity and living world of Ultima, the choice-driven quests and reactivity of Fallout and Arcanum, and the rich NPC interaction of Baldur's Gate and Planescape Torment, along with fresh new features that haven't been seen before in the genre.

Realms Beyond is an RPG true to its roots, knowing that in order to reach the skies, it must stand on the shoulders of giants. But it is more than just a simple throwback to the old days: it's a new take on classic concepts of the genre, taking the best ideas of the past and adding its own fresh concepts to create a unique game with its very own atmosphere and personality.

The Waylanders - Kickstarter Live
Posted: Oct 16, 2018, 09:22 pm by RPGWatch

[​IMG]The Kickstarter for The Waylanders is live now.

[​IMG]

Time-Travelling Fantasy RPG, The Waylanders, Launches its Kickstarter Campaign

A Coruña, Spain - October 16, 2018 - Announced in August 2018, The Waylanders has seen its development team at Gato Salvaje Studio hard at work preparing for the launch of the game's Kickstarter campaign which is going live today! With former Bioware lead, Mike Laidlaw (Dragon Age: Origins, Jade Empire, Mass Effect) on board as a creative consultant (as well as a few other high profile writers we can't mention yet), The Waylanders is aiming for a $150,000 USD goal and will provide players with an engaging narrative featuring impactful character development, unique companion romance options, and a deeply technical combat system.

An exciting fantasy RPG, The Waylanders showcases a unique, party-based experience that time travels between two distinct eras - Celtic and Medieval - covering a rich history that has been largely overlooked in video game lore up to this point. Choices made in one time period can have dire consequences in the other, meaning players will feel the impact of their decisions in surprising and shocking ways.

One of the game's biggest features is its new and innovative approach to battle with the inclusion of combat formations. Fusing combatants together into a combined, more powerful character offers players a deep combination of tactics when approaching conflict. You can find out all about the combat formations in the Kickstarter video;

KEY FEATURES
  • Real-time combat with tactical pause, character creation, and 36 classes (6 basic and 30 advanced)
  • Play from a top-down isometric perspective that can be shifted to a third person perspective on the fly
  • Story and combat inspired by RPG classics Dragon Age and Neverwinter Nights 2
  • 12 different combat formations (2 per class) sees players fuse characters to provide varied and technical combat options
Here is the video on combat formations:

Paradox Interactive - Future Games More Moddable
Posted: Oct 16, 2018, 03:13 pm by RPGWatch

[​IMG]Paradox have upgraded their engine to be more moddable in the future according to PC Gamer.

[​IMG]

"Half of our team is going to be building tools, going forward."

Starting with next year's Imperator: Rome-which impressed Tom in his hands-on this week-Paradox's grand strategy games are going to be much easier to mod thanks to an upgrade to the engine the developer uses, according to engine team lead John Wordsworth.

In an interview with Venture Beat, Wordsworth said that a major upgrade to the ten-year-old Clausewitz engine will provide far more tools to modders, allowing them to easier create custom UIs, complete overhaul mods or simply change the terrain of a map.

Encased - Last 24 hours
Posted: Oct 15, 2018, 09:02 pm by RPGWatch

[​IMG]Encased is in its last day to reach some stretch goals. Dark Crystal Games will also be hosting an AMA on Reddit Monday, 15th October (11:00 PM CET/ 03:00 PM PDT).

Encased Kickstarter Update #25: 24 hours countdown, details about 'Ursula' HQ

A little more than a day is left till the end of our Kickstarter campaign. Thanks to your activity, less than 24 hours passed from achieving one stretch goal to unlocking another! Now, not only will Encased include the Fallen Fortress encounter, but the game will also have an extended freeplay mode, entertaining you with additional quests and content after the initial playthrough is over.

Very little funding is needed until we unlock the next stretch goal: the auto-train mobile HQ.

We've already talked about Ursula in an earlier update, but a few more details remain to be revealed.

We need to rush to get it!
Ursula was designed before the Incident, and when Maelstrom was unleashed on the world the project had to be modified in a hurry. The engineers worked furiously to protect the machine and its crew from waves of damaging psychic energy, and they were quite successful: one of Ursula's cars is equipped with a special air-tight compartment shielded by thick lead walls. This allows you to navigate Ursula through those rare sectors where Maelstrom is so strong that no exposed character, no matter how high his Psyche score, can survive.

Ursula will grant you access to places you cannot reach in any other way.

***

To survey areas made uninhabitable by raging psychic energy, you can use a special drone with weapons and a manipulator arm which allows you to retrieve small objects, press buttons, and open doors.

Researchers were certain these autonomous robots would be very useful: according to maps compiled before the catastrophe, several unexamined complexes were located in areas with the highest Maelstrom activity. Perhaps the increased concentration of psychic energy has some relation to their contents, but... what could that be?

The answer to this question we leave for the player to uncover.

***

Although rigorous testing showing the shielding to be effective, there was something even the research scientists did not know. The weird psychic energy affects not only organic matter, but technology as well. In sufficient quantities, the radiation will manifest itself by altering the behavior of onboard systems.

The change in Ursula's "personality" poses many difficult questions: is this new development dangerous, or is it an opportunity to make direct contact with Maelstrom? What are the possible threats, and are there any positive effects?

This event could turn out to be a serious crisis, but it's also one of the many interesting, major quests associated with the auto-train HQ.

***

Ursula is unique, and there are many people in the desert who would like to lay hands on her. Sooner or later you will have to raise your defenses and fight against raiders intent on taking over your auto-train.

That's how stationed camp looks like
In the previous update dedicated to the mobile HQ, we talked about converting the train's armored hull into a wall. However, that's not all: the train can be equipped with stationary turrets directed by the on-board computer's defense protocol. This program itself can also be edited by the player for maximum effectiveness.

The turrets must be serviced and repaired, and their ammunition replenished of course. Upgrades will be available.

[​IMG]

Dragon Quest 11 has received a pretty substantial patch that let players unlock the framerate of the game, as well as fixing a few crashes.

Before launching the game, you can also now pick between three sets of graphical presets: low, medium and high. They break down like this:

Colony Ship - The Interface
Posted: Oct 14, 2018, 02:42 pm by RPGWatch

[​IMG]A new update for Colony Ship focuses on the interface.

[​IMG]

We're implementing the interface right now so let me show what we have and get some feedback. Let's start with the standard features:
  • Two weapon slots showing equipped weapons and selected attack's stats (damage, AP, ammo)
  • An optional textbox giving you detailed blow-by-blow info during combat
  • A combat queue we used in Dungeon Rats to show who gets to act when
  • 4 belt bags so you can throw grenades or use items in combat without moving them to the weapon slots
Weapon and Portrait

The combat interface is familiar, but instead of selecting attacks via a drop-down list, which was a bit messy and not very intuitive, you'll use icons that appear when you click on a weapon slot:

Combat Interface

The icons are grouped in 3 different categories:
  • Basic attacks (fast, regular, power for melee; snap shot and regular shot for ranged; there are no power attacks with guns)
  • Aimed attacks (self-explanatory; you get an extra bullseye shot with ranged)
  • Special attacks (double shot, short burst, long burst, double strike, flurry (3 strikes), and swing (hits 3 tiles).
Your feedback here would be much appreciated.

Next is the dialogue window:

^ we don't have Mercy's portrait yet so we're using a placeholder portrait. As for the design:
  • The dialogue window won't take the entire screen, as in AoD since it added nothing but extra work (the camera had to be manually positioned)
  • The checks will now display the skill or stat level required to avoid playing a guessing game; if there is no value listed (see the first response), the stat acts as a modifier (strengthening or weakening the reaction) not a check. Strength can be used as a modifier too if you're trying to intimidate, for example, so it's not Charisma only.
  • Since we've decided to show the check values, might as well show your skill levels so that you don't have to rely on memory alone. Green means your skill level is equal to or higher than the check value. Yellow means it's lower but you can still make an attempt. Red means no go (what used to be hidden options in AoD). Before you start freaking out, remember that the check system was changed and it's no longer a binary 'succeed or fail' setup, so green lines won't always be the best and yellow lines won't always lead to failure and death, so we aren't highlighting the best and worst options for you here.
  • The tags can be turned on and off in the options, so if you don't like them, turn them off.
Thoughts?
