Square Enix is adding a new IP to their gaming family– a new, strange IP. It’s called Life is Strange, and in a recently-released blog entry, Square describes the game as something “wholly different to anything we have ever attempted before, both in gameplay and narrative”.

Life is Strange is a modern-day story revolving around one character’s ability to rewind time and the repercussions of such power. It will be a choice-based game released in regular episodic content that will allow players to experience a unique gaming experience based on decisions made in previous episodes. Episodes will be digitally released.

We’ll see Life is Strange released on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Square Enix hasn’t announced a release date yet, but the screenshots released so far look fairly impressive.

BioWare has announced, with very little fanfare, that director and executive producer Casey Hudson has left BioWare. While the announcement was made via a blog entry on Thursday morning, the news is just beginning to make news across the internet.

Hudson is best known as the director of the controversial third chapter of the Mass Effect series, and played a prominent role in the development of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Opinion on the effects of Hudson’s departure are mixed, mostly due to the predominantly negative opinion on the quality of BioWare’s games since the company was bought out by EA.

Although Hudson states that he has struggles with the decision to leave the company, he writes:
“After what already feels like a lifetime of extraordinary experiences, I have decided to hit the reset button and move on from BioWare. I’ll take a much needed break, get perspective on what I really want to do with the next phase of my life, and eventually, take on a new set of challenges.”

Hudson’s departure comes as BioWare prepares the release Dragon Age: Inquisition and develops the next Mass Effect game.

Wow! Running around in ArcheAge Alpha, I stumbled upon something that made me jump up and down in excitement!

Trion Creates a Labor of Love

Trion has always been pioneering in gaming innovation, partnering with XLGAMES for ArcheAge being one of these fore-thinking developments. Today, if I am correct, I think something happened I have never seen in any game and it is just superb because it involves bots and I absolutely despise bots – bots being the online term for robot or any software application that runs automated tasks. Here’s what happened:

For quite a few years now, World of Warcraft players have grumbled every time WoW‘s anniversary event pops up in November. Those of us who have been around since 2009 and before remember receiving cool pets like the Onyxian Whelpling and the Baby Blizzard Bear. It’s been a good few years since Blizzard’s offered its playerbase cool rewards for WoW‘s anniversary, but fear not– this year will be a big one!

Just announced yesterday, Blizzard is already gearing up for World of Warcraft‘s 10th anniversary. As part of the event festivities, we’re going back in time a bit to nostalgia land. Well, Molten Core and Hillsbrad Foothills to be exact. Players will be able to take part in a special battleground taking us back in time to the days when world PvP rocked our WoW-sphere in Tarren Mill vs. Southshore: The Rematch. Tarren Mill vs. Southshore will be a deathmatch-type battleground with a clearly-defined victor (unlike the original world PvP matches!).

Results are in for the second contest run by Trion creating a buzz across the high seas of ArcheAge to win an Archeum Founder’s Pack with “Raise Your Sails“. It’s been a blast following the official forum post as the creative deviousness and brilliance of many personalized crests in ArcheAge revealed themselves. Without further ado, here are the six winning crests that also included a most meta sail pick from Trion staff members that made us smile!

Yes, that magnificent mane belongs to a playable character in the upcoming Hyrule Warriors game, and that character is Ganondorf. I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised to see him as a playable character, but since we’ve only seen good characters revealed as playable, I was actually caught off guard. The new Nintendo Direct also showed that we’ll be getting alternative costumes, some of which will be DLC (such as Ganondorf having DLC only available to Club Nintendo members who register the game within the first four weeks of release). Check past the cut to see who all’s been confirmed so far, various games modes, other “evil” playable characters, and even a bit on character customization.
