Tales from Borderlands Episode 2 Trailer "Atlas Mugged"

As mentioned on the site, in depth, by one of our writers we LOVE us some Telltale. They've gone to the forefront of story-telling in our hearts with their faithful adaptations of several beloved franchises. Now we're looking at a second chapter in their most recent works for Borderlands.

The trailer for the second chapter in Tales from Borderlands, Atlas Mugged, details the plot of the next chapter as such:

Radial Dialogue - Episode 4 - House of Cards and GDC

This morning we recorded another new episode of Radial Dialogue. Unfortunate it didn't include Jen because she's out sick today, but we did get to play some SpeedRunners, which is awesome in of itself. We also talked some of the news coming out of GDC this week, including Clayfighter, Unreal Engine going free, and Trine 3!

Mortal Kombat X Mobile Announced

There was a time where the concept of mobile based tie-ins was something that disgusted me. Actually, it would be fair to say there was a time when mobile gaming in general disgusted me. However, I have come around on the concept and there's a collection of games on my smartphone that I play daily.

For a while, one of those games was the Injustice Mobile game. It looked good and because I'm a fan of collecting, the card-based character collection appealed to me.

Republique Emerges From Its Chrysalis On PC and Mac

The tumultuous but successful Kickstarter for Republique back in 2012 was my first taste of crowd-funding. It was particularly thrilling because a number of the people involved including David Hayter and Jennifer Hale were here in Vancouver for an expo while the campaign was happening. It was also the first project that I decided to fund based on the director's clear philosophy.

Sky Pirates of Neo Terra and the One Million Facebook Likes

The good folks at Vancouver based social and mobile game developer, Fathom Interactive, recently celebrated their popular title, Sky Pirates of Neo Terra receiving one million likes on their Facebook page.  They did so, of course, by throwing a party, and Shogun Gamer was there for the partying to be had in strides!

Finding Victory In Video Games

In the middle of a long brick-walled office, Samarth Chandola sits behind a desk. A guitar lays on top, next to a picture – the frame reads “In Loving Memory.” It's a picture of himself.

Link to the Past Receives a Sequel [Nintendo Direct]

This morning Nintendo resumed their new trend of direct-to-consumer release information via another installment of their “Nintendo Direct” series. Basically a online webcast in the vein of a press conference that all fans of Nintendo can join online. This video detailed Nintendo’s plans moving forwards for the Nintendo 3DS, year of Luigi, and the Wii U. Why is another Nintendo Direct worth writing about? Well, because this one featured information about a new Zelda game and Earthbound’s plans to come to NA.

Next Wave Of Projects From Minority Media Detailed

One of my favorite new developers in the games industry could be keeping themselves busy for quite some time based on some preliminary details that have just surfaced. 

After starting off strong and wowing gamers, and the industry alike, with the release of Papo & Yo last year on the PlayStation Network, the team at Minority Media are hard at work on several new projects which once again maintain the mantra of originality the studio has become known for.

Indie Love - East Side Games

Vancouver’s East Side Games launched themselves from the arguably inauspicious beginnings of Pot Farm to become a stable, successful, and growing indie shop currently approaching the ripe old age of two. Their success is owed partially to an experienced management team, partially to the company culture that empowers decisions at all levels of the organization, and (I think you’ll agree) more than a little to the moxie from passionate game developers like Josh Nilson, COO of East Side Games and the person providing the answers to our questions.

 

Pacific Rim To Receive Video Game Treatment

Deep inside us I think we all desire to see a good game based upon a film like Man of Steel or Iron Man 3, and thankfully one upcoming film which has the geek world buzzing is actually receiving the video game treatment.

If you saw the Pacific Rim trailer and thought “wow, that would be a kick-ass video game” then your wish has been granted as such a thing is in the works.  Announced today by Legendary Pictures, Pacific Rim will be adapted into a series of video games for both the consoles and PC.
