announces a new stealthy, nonlethal 1998 mode coming to BioShock
in the upcoming Burial at Sea – Episode Two
DLC for the
shooter prequel. "In Burial at Sea – Episode Two we put a focus on balance and
stealth mechanics," explains Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games.
"As we were developing this new style of gameplay, we started to see people
self-impose non-lethal playthrough’s. Given the fan reception of 1999 Mode, we
thought it would be cool to give them another way to play Burial at Sea that
challenged their mastery of stealth tools."

explaining the current status of the game. Big Finish games announces the game
will have a big finish, saying they have "packed two full-length Tex Murphy
Games into one." They provide tons of detail on the tons of detail in the game,

providing 2K graphics. According to the video's description: "The 2K format
being delivered with Tesla Effect provides 2048 pixels of horizontal resolution.
This refers specifically to the live-action full motion video portion of the
game. The actual game engine graphics are scalable to many resolutions your

Call of Duty: Ghosts players on PlayStation 4,
PlayStation 3 and Windows PC can now purchase the first DLC Pack - Onslaught.
The new DLC Pack delivers four unique and classically designed Call of Duty
multiplayer maps, the all-new "Maverick" dual-purpose Assault Rifle/Sniper
Rifle, and the first installment in Extinction's four-part episodic narrative,
"Episode 1: Nightfall."
New multiplayer maps in Onslaught include:
- Fog: Set alongside the banks of a murky lake,
players skilled enough to pick up the map's unique Field Order can become
the embodiment of evil and don the mask of Michael Myers, one of cinema's
most iconic horror characters, in this chilling homage to classic horror
- BayView: A coastal Californian boardwalk that
offers players fast-paced run-and-gun gameplay amid a seaside town. Clever
players will be able to climb onto the map's moving trolley to engage
enemies, as well as call in devastating artillery strikes from the Naval
Destroyer anchored offshore.
- Containment: This map drops players into a raging
battle amidst a war-torn Mexican village, where the action centers on the
crippled remains of a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck leaking
- Ignition: Is a reimagined version of "Scrapyard" -
the fan-favorite multiplayer map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2,
placing players into a deserted space launch facility with frenetic action
amongst abandoned warehouses, flame trenches, a massive transport crawler,
and dynamic map elements that can take players out if they're not paying
Onslaught also arms players with the Maverick, a deadly new, dual-purpose
addition to their multiplayer arsenal. Outfitted with a lightweight wood stock,
players can choose to use the Maverick as either an Assault Rifle or Sniper
Rifle, depending on their tactical needs.
Anchoring Onslaught is "Episode 1: Nightfall," the first installment in
Extinction's new, four-part episodic narrative. As the initial foray into this
single, connected story that will be told across each DLC Pack launch throughout
the year, "Episode 1: Nightfall" takes fans to a remote research facility hidden
deep within the Alaskan wilderness, where a small recon team must infiltrate the
facility to find out what happened to the mysterious Nightfall Program. This
expanded Extinction storyline introduces new characters, plus two all-new alien
species, and debuts an exclusive Venom-X weapon that pulverizes the Cryptids, as
players delve deeper into the story of what happened following mankind's first
contact with the Cryptids in Colorado.

bitComposer and Games Farm
today announced Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms, a new action RPG to be released on PC
in 2014. In Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms, the mortal realm is on the brink of
destruction, with humanity’s only hope resting in the hands of a soul-devouring
Following the events of hack ’n’ slash RPG Kult: Heretic Kingdoms, a dark shadow
has once again fallen over the world. The core element of Shadows: Heretic
Kingdoms is its internally conflicted main character and the associated unique
party system. Players must assume the role of the Devourer, a mighty demon who
can travel back and forth between the human and shadow world, devouring the
souls of his enemies. Seamlessly switching between the Devourer and up to three
party members, each with their own special abilities, provides strategic depth
in battle, while switching between worlds also allows players to outwit their
opponents in battle, avoiding traps and solving puzzles along the way.
A shadow lies across the world, and the Devourer is the only one who can defeat
this rising threat. It is now up to players to decide whether they save the
world from this dark threat or leave it to its fate.

lost feathers and return to Asgard.
From Portuguese developer Gojira and publisher Daedalic Entertainment, Munin is
an upcoming 2D puzzle-platformer for Windows and Mac that fuses physics-based
puzzles with Nordic mythology.
Munin bolsters the traditional side-scrolling experience with the use of
rotating environments to surpass obstacles. By twisting portions of the
environment, players will create bridges from pillars, turn walls into floors,
and use physics to manipulate boulders, liquid, and lava.
Munin features 77 levels stretching across nine distinct worlds. It will be
released for PC and Mac in all major online shops in spring 2014.

tease of the new project:
I think this is actually a genuine sort of
exclusive, because I don't think this is public knowledge yet, but Croteam is
working on their first new franchise since the original Serious Sam in 2001.
Which is exciting, 'cause I've always been [eager] to see what those guys would
actually do with resources and all of that experience and all they've done is
Sam, and they're doing something completely new, which I am working on... so
that's ongoing now [and]... should be out at some point later this year.

Heroes is an action/adventure RPG that is played from a top-down perspective,
