minecraft-story-mode-logo

Minecraft: Story Mode is an all-new narrative-driven, five-part episodic game series, developed by Telltale in collaboration with Mojang. Set in the world of Minecraft, the game series introduces new characters and familiar themes, but is an entirely original Minecraft experience inspired by the game that continues to inspire a generation.

Players will control protagonist Jesse throughout the season, as portrayed by actor Patton Oswalt. Jesse and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order are the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong… something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion.

The season will feature Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens. Additional casting details for the season are yet to be announced.

As single-player or two-player co-op, players must help Riley’s Emotions journey through Imagination Land, work together using each character’s unique skills to defeat enemies, gather Riley’s displaced memories, and return them to the Long Term with the help of Mind Workers before Riley awakens.

Gameforge and developer Robot Entertainment have expanded the full-action PvP title ready for the second phase of the closed beta, which includes numerous new features and also responses to beta tester feedback. Alongside changes to the combat system and general gameplay, players can look forward to a more polished visual experience and also an additional map. And you can get in on the action.

OMDU-KeyArt

The latest version of Orcs Must Die! Unchained is here with lots of changes: the new Trait Builder lets you personalise and strengthen individual heroes, enabling you to adapt them to your style of play. On top of this, heroes are also now set as either attackers or defenders, allowing for a clearer tasking within the team. A ‘traditional’ defender character will still be able to wreck havoc on the front lines and attacking heroes will be able to contribute in defence. Heroes now gain experience during battles, which allows them to rise to a maximum level of 8 within a match, opening up a variety of additional enhancements, buffs and skills to choose from.

The base game tempo has been reduced ever so slightly, allowing players tos et up their battles in a more tactical manner. The revamped environments bring more than just an improved version of Cliffside Clash: a lot of the improved hero skills are now accompanied by a short animation. This allows for both sides to better react to enemy attacks – dodge or counter – adding additional depth to one on one encounters.

As before, players select various minion cards in the Deck Builder to then send these selections on their destructive paths towards the enemy rift. From now on, teams can choose which war camp to release their hordes from. Over the course of a match

an additional slot now opens in the camp, where a powerful boss can be selected from a choice of trolls, ogres and other monsters.

In addition to the already available Cliffside Clash and Highlands maps comes ‘Unchained Fortress’, where players are taken to the home of the namesake orcs. The circular-formed map has a selection of secret paths and passages and demands tactical thinking for success.

So we have 200 keys for the closed beta (these are for the EU only), get one below because when they are gone, they are gone:

GAME Digital plc has today announce a number of key promotions and appointments across the Group. These appointments follow the continued strategic progress GAME has made over the last year. 2015 has already seen the Group launch GAME Marketplace and significantly increase its gamer offering with the acquisition of Multiplay, organisers of Insomnia, the UK’s largest gaming festival, live gaming events for third parties (such as MINECON 2015) as well as providers of managed game servers through its ClanForge platform and digital solutions to game publishers and developers.

GAME-logo

Following that acquisition, GAME has now been realigned into three new operating divisions: GAME Retail, GAME eSports and Events and GAME Digital Solutions.

As part of GAME’s ongoing commitment to deliver market leading offers and experiences to customers, Charlotte Knight has been promoted to the new role of UK Retail Managing Director with responsibility for all commercial activity in the UK, across all channels. Charlotte has held a number of commercial positions within the business over the past 13 years, including the role of UK Category Director since 2012, where she was responsible for GAME’s expanding product ranges across digital and physical, mint and pre-owned.

Pablo Crespo, Director General Spain, will continue to lead our operations in the Spanish market and will work closely with Charlotte as he becomes more involved in the group activities.

GAME also announces the appointment of Stuart Rowe to the senior team as Business Development Director.

Stuart has held senior positions at a number of consumer facing businesses over the course of his career, including the role of Managing Director of Play.com between 2005 and 2011, where he led the strategy and expansion of the business. Stuart will be responsible for all business development opportunities across the Group, as well as owning the digital solutions strategy, and will report into Martyn Gibbs, Group CEO.

Following GAME’s acquisition of Multiplay, Craig Fletcher, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Multiplay and Stewart Fletcher, Chief Operating Officer of Multiplay, also join the senior team and will help lead the expansion of GAME’s eSports, events and community based offer.

Martyn Gibbs, GAME Digital Chief Executive Officer, said:

“I’m both fortunate and excited to work alongside such a talented and dynamic senior team and am delighted to be announcing these new, senior appointments, which further strengthen our leadership team. The changes will ensure we are best placed to deliver a leading customer experience for both gamers and gifters, whilst maximising the long term growth potential of each of our divisions: GAME Retail, GAME eSports and Events and GAME Digital Solutions.”

Telltale Games have released Episode 2 of Tales of the Borderlands, and here is our spoiler free review.

episode 2

This is how Telltale describes the game:

Like all good tales, there’s more than one side to a story. Especially one about a Vault key, the Hyperion Corporation, bandits, loot, gangsters, Vault Hunters, secret Atlas tech, explosions, getaways, extortion, betrayal, and mayhem.

Set after the events seen in Borderlands 2, Tales from the Borderlands is about Rhys, a Hyperion company man looking to become the next Handsome Jack, and it’s also about Fiona, a Pandoran con artist out to score the biggest of all swindles.

Lured into danger by a Vault key and all it promises, the unlikely duo are thrown together with a common goal and a huge amount of mistrust. Who is telling the truth, and why is it important?

That’s up to you to decide.

You are Rhys…and you are also Fiona, because like every tale worth telling, there are two…oh, you read that part already? Well, it’s important to remember that there *are* two sides to every story, and you my friend, you will tell this tale, or…tales, through the choices that you make. Your every decision as both Rhys and Fiona will affect the people and world around you: this is a game where YOU are the final author in a brand new Borderlands story set on the unforgiving world of Pandora.

Now I’m both a fan of Telltales other games, in particular The Walking Dead, and also of the Borderlands series from 2K Games and Gearbox, so when I heard about Tales of the Borderlands I couldn’t wait to play it.

Like the description says, you play two different characters – the first one is Rhys, voiced by Troy Baker (I’m not sure when he gets the time to do anything other than record voices for games, but he is very good at it and so its always a pleasure to listen to). As this is a spoiler free review I wont go into too many details about the plot, other than to say that Rhys was due a big promotion at Hyperion and he gets screwed out of it by his arch-nemesis, so he decides to screw him back.

The second character is Fiona, voiced by Laura Bailey. Fiona is a grifter and part way through the episode you switch to playing her. Fiona and Rhys’s story is interwoven and it’s fun to watch them play off each other, but again, I don’t want to give too much away.

The gameplay style is what you would expect from Telltale – you have a number of options to choose from in different situations, and your selections will result in the story changing around you. There are also sections where you have to dodge attacks, and even target enemies (which is a whole heap of fun).

The first thing I noticed when the game started was just how much it felt like a Borderlands game. Now that might sound obvious, but I wasn’t sure if this would be a Telltale game with a Borderlands theme, or a Borderlands game with a Telltale interface. It’s actually the best of both worlds, with a typically insane and funny Borderlands story with all the gameplay you would expect from Telltale. I found the gameplay very smooth and the selections easy to choose, even easier than previous Telltale games.

rhys-and-jack-closer-1920x1080

The graphics are typical Borderlands and I loved the humour. The voices are done really well, and along with Troy and Laura, Nolan North also makes an appearance, as does Dameon Clarke.

Now’s it’s been four months since episode 1 was released, and I was hoping for a quicker turnaround for episode 2, but that wasn’t the case. This has happened in the past with Telltale games, they are always worth the wait, but with 5 episodes making up the entire game if each 2 hour episode takes 4 months to come out I can see people getting rather frustrated. At least Telltale made a little joke about the delay in the opening moments of episode 2, so that was a nice touch.

As with other Telltale games, episode 2 takes place straight after the events of episode 1, and as before I am not going to spoil anything by telling you much, suffice to say that Handsome Jack plays a big part in this episode, and fans of Borderlands The Pre-Sequel will be pleased to see a few characters making an appearance. Watch out for the eye though!

The second episode took about 2 hours to complete, and I am really looking forward to episode 3, let’s just hope that doesn’t take 4 months to come out.

The cost of this episode is just $4.99 USD or equivalent or as part of a Season Pass package for all five episodes for just $24.99 USD or equivalent or less.

If you are a fan of either Telltale’s games or Borderlands, then this is a must for you. Now I just have to wait patiently for episode 3.
