Disco Elysium - Video Review

Disco Elysium Review - Is it REALLY RPG of the Year?


If a game that has flown under my radar ends up winning the RPG of the Year at the 2019 Game Awards, I'm going to want to play it. This was the case with Disco Elysium, an RPG that is very different to what you would expect for the genre.

I was hooked with Disco from the start, but I know that this game won't appeal to everyone, as the imbalance between action and reading is massive. If you like to run and gun, or loot n Shoot then you may want to think twice about giving this one a go, but that would be a shame as Disco Elysium is one hell of an awesome ride.

Iratus: Lord of the Dead - DevBlog on The Nearest Future

Posted on Jan 23, 2020 10:02 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]A new devblog for Iratus: Lord of the Dead talks about the release, pre-patch, and open beta testing.

[​IMG]

Dev Blog 2020: the nearest future

[​IMG]
Hello, necromancers!

Iratus: Lord of the Dead has been in early access on Steam for over half a year. During this time, we have received a huge amount of feedback from our players. Thanks to all who shared their suggestions for improving the game, Iratus is getting better and better because of you!

In this dev blog we will start sharing our near-term plans and upcoming features.

The release, Pre-Patch and open beta testing.

As we said, we are planning to release the full version in the second quarter of 2020.
Now we have a large number of new functions and mechanics, so we decide to release Pre-Patch, which includes most of the planned changes (but NOT new content - that will be just in the full version of the game). There are a lot of new features, so we decided to switch to a new patch in two stages:

1. At the first stage, it will be an open beta test of all new mechanics. Anyone will be able to join the beta branch on Steam with the newest version of the game. Beta testing will begin in February - the exact date will be announced later. Instructions will be published on our Discord server (you can join it now):

2. After the beta testing will be over, a game update will be released for all our players.
Important: saves from old versions will not be compatible with the new version due to significant changes in mechanics. We'll notify players about this beforehand. The patch date will be announced later.

So, what new mechanics are we introducing?

Iratus and minion experience

Gaining experience for Iratus and his minions will be much more flexible and intuitive.
How much experience is gained from the effect of an artifact or event will depend on the current level of Iratus and his minions, and even the level of the minion from the Grave will correlate with the level of the current squad. As you progress along the map, you will gain more experience from victories and find more powerful artifacts and minion items in Coffins, Chests and on Sacrificial Altar.

Minion Upgrading

The most significant new feature is a much more convenient system for upgrading minion characteristics. Many players don't like the current part system:
  • Random drop - the player is forced to roll the necessary bonuses. Some amount of randomness is certainly needed, but we want to give you the opportunity to more comfortably customize your minions without RNG influence.
  • Part creation requires a lot of routine actions and a lot of clicks.
  • Upgrading-with-parts system is not intuitive and too complicated for new players.
  • The most popular strategy was to cumulate low-rarity parts until the moment when you can make a Legendary part from them. In our opinion, it will be much more pleasant for players to immediately receive any obvious increases to the minion characteristics, without the need to store resources.

Dark Messiah - HD Texture Pack

Posted on Jan 22, 2020 09:32 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]DSOGaming reports on a high definition texture pack for Dark Messiah of Might and Magic.

[​IMG]

...

As we can see in these screenshots, the game's lighting is really dated and makes the environments feel flat. Thus, I'm pretty sure that this game would greatly benefit from Reshade Ray Tracing.

In case you receive a crash when loading new game or saved game, apply large address aware to mm.exe.

You can download Dark Messiah Enhanced from here.

Have fun!

State of the Remake

(Originally posted by Marvin 29/12/2018 HERE)

It's time for another "State of the Remake" video! This one is about 30 minutes long. In this one, I visit all of the races that you can encounter in the game. The comm system isn't 100% done yet, but it is mostly working. The orange/green "pill" thingy that you will see is just a temporary placeholder for ship models that I have not built yet.

Next up - while the rest of the team are doing research for me to help me get the comm system 100% complete, I will be working on all of the ship models.
  • Note: apparently there is no sound in the YouTube video... which means the video was recorded without sound. I do not know how that happened. :-\

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem - Crafting

Posted on Jan 21, 2020 03:12 by RPGWatch

Crafting in Wolcen

[​IMG]
Hello everyone!

You've been asking for some news about crafting for some time now, today we're happy to share with you what is crafting in Wolcen, and how this works.

But first, we would like to inform you that the Online servers for Wolcen will be shut down on January 29 to prepare for the release version.
Starting January 29, it will only be possible to play Wolcen Offline until the release of the game on February 13.

Now let's talk about the main topic!

GEMS

Let's have a word about gems since they're going to be part of the crafting process.

Gems will be a bit different at the release and offer various options.
Their affixes values will not be based on a random roll but will be fixed and only determined by the gem's type and quality. This allows gems to be stackable items.

Here is an example of what it will be like. As usual, keep in mind that the values shown on these items are not final.

[​IMG]

As you noticed, there will now be three types of Offensive, Defensive, and Support bonuses. The matching sockets to these bonuses will be determined by a random roll on your armor.[...]

A Long Way Down - In Early Access

Posted on Jan 21, 2020 03:12 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]A Long Way Down is a roguelike deck-building RPG game released into Early Access recently by Goblinz Studio.

[​IMG]


The game draws inspiration from hits like Darkest Dungeon, Slay the Spire and Hand of Fate.

A Long way down is a mash-up between an RPG and a deck-building game. Embody Sam and try escaping this maze where a sneaky and evil mastermind reigns. Let your memories and your choices guide you... but don't fall into darkness.

Craft a deck

The cards you choose will determine how you explore the dungeon and how you defend yourself from the horrors it contains.

Fight your way through the unforgiving monster maze

Great challenges await you as you go deeper into the dungeon. Use your cards and cunning, adapt your playstyle and overcome all enemies.

Gather your party

You'll meet many fellow adventurers down in the dark - will you gain allies or make enemies?

Traverse the maze

Use your cards to bridge gaps and defy dead ends as you travel through the maze. Rush to escape or take time to explore, the choice is yours.

Upgrade your items and equipment

Collect rewards and use them to grow your power to take on what lies in the depths.

Confront the evil overlord

Every choice you made will affect the final battle - can you defeat the mastermind in its lair?

RPGWatch - Game of the Year Awards 2019

Posted on Jan 20, 2020 14:53 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]Here is your chance to vote in RPGWatch's yearly Game of the Year Awards for the best RPG in 2019 and most anticipated game in 2020. You can vote for the best, runner up and third best (or most anticipated) game. In total their GOTY consists of making 6 choices. If you feel you do not have anything to select you can select no game. If you select the same game multiple times, your entire vote will be invalidated.

The lists are based on games that in one way or the other got covered at RPGWatch. The resulting list for the Game of the Year 2019 is derived from a much longer list, which has been reduced in length in cooperation with their forum members. You might feel that some games should (not) be on these lists for some reason. If you feel heart-broken over their decisions, don't vote for those games or don't vote at all and discuss it on their forums if you like. More information on how they got to these shorter lists can be found here and here.

Note that voting is restricted to registered users only and those with at least 10 posts.
