“Hello and welcome back to the Aperture Science computer-aided enrichment center.”

We welcome all lucky applicants to Bridge Constructor Portal with our new vehicle-based test chambers, Quantum Tunnels and patented Aperture technology!

For the last year we’ve been secretly working in our underground labs on the next iteration of the million-selling Bridge Constructor series. This new stand-alone title will release on PC, MacOS, Linux, mobile devices, and console, and fully embraces the Portal license, one of the most beloved video game franchises of the last decade.

Bridge Constructor Portal will blend the laws of structural engineering and technology straight from Aperture Laboratories into an exciting new game experience, all under the demanding gaze of GLaDOS.

 

Bridge Constructor Portal will be released on December 20 2017 for Windows, MacOS and Linux as well as for mobile devices. The console versions will follow in early 2018.

“If you’ve been paying attention the solution should be obvious. As the case may be… good luck!”

This was certainly unexpected. A crossover between Bridge Constructor and Portal was not one of the games we would have seen coming. Still, there is a lot of potential here.

Here is some surprising news, Tencent has announced a port of PUBG for smartphones. This mobile version will release first in China.. Developer Bluehole is working on the port, so there should not be major issues with the game being mishandled by a 3rd party.

There are no details about a release outside of China yet, but Tencent did say they will reveal more details soon.

I love classic style turn based RPGs. There is something about them that just takes me back to an older era and lets me enjoy myself without worrying about all new combat mechanics ( for the most part), and one company that makes this style of game still is KEMCO. I noted in my review of their game Revenant Saga that KEMCO had begun to move out of their paint by numbers approach to making RPGs. While the games they made are great, they had a problem of being formulaic and not deviating much. They were fun to play and lose yourself in for hours but eventually they all became the same. Revenant Saga brought some refreshing change and now Antiquia Lost pushes them further in that new direction.

Antiquia Lost follows a bit of the typical KEMCO formula but plays with it so much, that it becomes new. The game eschews the 3D battle screens KEMCO has been using lately, in favor of a classic 16 bit style battle screen. Its a nice touch and helps the general feeling of the game :making . I must also note that the visuals are surprisingly excellent on Switch, with the art looking sharper than in previous games. I must say though, that I am not happy about the miscrotransactions being in the console versions, as it feels like a step back from KEMCO’s work with consoles. Still they can be ignored, but locking some staples behind a paywall doesn’t feel right.

Antiquia Lost introduces new play mechanics as well, but keeps them grounded in their previous games and they don’t feel overwhelming. I do like that the way the characters interact is different, and using a different character is much more involved this time. The story of the game also immediately deviates from KEMCO’s normal pattern and I must commend them for that. Right away we are given an experience that uses what KEMCO utilized before, but doesn’t stay firmly in the past. Instead, Antiquia Lost takes what was done and uses those ideas to chart a new path, and it is a most excellent journey. It doesn’t overwhelm you and it is familiar enough while still being a fresh experience. Even with the flaw of microtransactions, I recommend it.

On November 30th, the next Story Expansion for The Elder Scrolls: Legends arrives. Prepare for the grandest adventure yet with Return to Clockwork City.

 

Featuring more than 55 new collectible cards rewarded across 35 exciting story missions. With these cards, players can search for lost treasure, construct steam-powered wonders, or channel their inner mad scientist to create strange mechanical abominations.

 

New Creature: Fabricants

The Clockwork City is the grand workshop of the late god Sotha Sil, who was obsessed with crafting his own forms of life, reconstructing and building on the work of the Dwemer artisans.

 

Perhaps his most intriguing and disturbing creations were the Fabricants, unique creatures born of both flesh and metal. In Legends, we’re bringing these to life with five Fabricant cards – one per attribute – that will reward players for playing with neutral cards like the Dwemer constructs. These five creatures offer some serious power, and create some exciting new deckbuilding possibilities.

 

New Mechanic: Treasure Hunt

Where there’s a lost city, there’s treasure, and people willing to risk their lives to find it. Enter the Treasure Hunters and the first of our new mechanics – denoted with “Treasure Hunt.” While in play, these adventurous fellows will watch each card players draw to see if it’s the treasure they’re looking for. Once players draw everything the hunters want, a reward awaits. For example, the new card Relic Hunter rewards a buff to the first weapon players draw after playing him – it wasn’t just any weapon, but the priceless object he’d been seeking!

 

New Mechanic: Assemble

In the years since Sotha Sil’s demise, his creations have had to fend for themselves. The humanoid clockwork constructs known as the Factotums have done that by learning to collectively repair, enhance, and upgrade their own bodies. Which brings us to the other new mechanic in Clockwork City: Assemble.

 

When players play an Assemble creature, they will choose one of two bonuses. That bonus will be bestowed upon both that creature and every Factotum in the player’s hand and deck.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a truly innovative game. It is one of the best spin offs this writer has seen in a long time.  This new expansion sounds truly amazing and will definitely be worth checking out.

Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, the mega-hit synchronous mobile fighting game, is initiating one of its most highly-anticipated game updates to-date with fan-favorite Megazords entering the arena for the first time. Starting today with the massive content update, players can play as these massive Megazords, pitting them against villains and other Megazords in Power Rangers: Legacy Wars which has been downloaded more than 23 million times since its launch and has more than 230 million matches played.

 

“Since Legacy Wars’ inception, nWay, Saban Brands and Lionsgate always envisioned making a game that would capture the team aspect of Power Rangers and showcase that #TogetherWeAreMore,” said Taehoon Kim, CEO, nWay. “The Megazord is the ultimate symbol of that sentiment and bringing Megazords to our game is a true realization of that vision.”

 

The Megazord update to Power Rangers: Legacy Wars also introduces an alliance-focused game mode featuring epic, real-time battles between the Megazords and mega-sized villains from the franchise’s 24-year history. Players will work with their alliance to complete sets of challenges entitled “Alliance Missions,” which can be completed faster by coordinating with active members. By finishing missions, players will be rewarded with Zords and collecting enough of these will unlock a battle-ready mighty Megazord to use against other alliances. Each Megazord can be fully customized before a battle by equipping two “Mega” attacks – special moves to be activated after filling a meter.

 

Beginning with this update, Power Rangers: Legacy Wars will also feature periodic “Megazord Alliance Wars” in which players compete against other alliances to climb a leaderboard that doles out rewards based on position – the higher a player ranks, the greater rewards received.

 

In collaboration with Saban Brands and Lionsgate, the development team at nWay have mixed their deep passion for Power Rangers to bring the fan-favorite Megazords to Power Rangers: Legacy Wars.

After Flower launched, we certainly could see its influence to break new boundaries and perceptions of how video games could be designed and played. Or how it could transcend and connect families and friends across ages, cultures and backgrounds.  That was certainly our hope – to bring it to as many people as possible, so that audiences around the world could see how games could be relevant to them.   At the time, we could see that gamers and non-gamers were indeed yearning for new kinds of interactive entertainment experiences.

 

So today, in a first-of-its-kind partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment and Annapurna Interactive, we are excited to announce that Flower is available to play on iPhone and iPad and can be downloaded from the App Store starting today. This is a special release for Flower because for the first time, more and more audiences can get to experience the calmness, poetic beauty and romanticism of game!  Our existing community can buy, share or gift the game to others to explore.  Casual players – older or younger family members and loved ones – can try it, complete it and maybe understand that games can encourage positivity.

 

 

This is amazing news, as the game is a perfect fit for mobile. Will you be checking this out?
