Every conflict has two sides and Fallen Legion shows the scars of war from both perspectives. In Fallen Legion: Sins of an Empire for PlayStation 4 you guide Princess Cecille and a cheeky talking Grimoire on a quest to restore glory to her crumbling empire. Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion for PlayStation Vita puts you in control of her rival, Legatus Laendur, a cunning general leading a coup to overthrow the royal family.

Each epic game in the Fallen Legion saga will retail for $19.99 on the PlayStation Store. Starting today, players who pre-order Fallen Legion: Sins of an Empire for PlayStation 4 will receive a free copy of Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion for PlayStation Vita as a bonus game. PlayStation Plus subscribers who pre-order Fallen Legion will also receive a 20% discount. Both Fallen Legion games will launch one week earlier, July 18th, in the Americas. This pre-order bonus will also soon be available throughout Europe where the game will be released on July 25th.

 

Coming to EVO this week? Spencer Yip (Director) and Al Yang (Combat Designer) will be there showing Fallen Legion at the MIX Indie Showcase with an exclusive level made especially for EVO that will not be available in the main game.   The Fallen Legion team is also hosting an indie game panel at San Diego Comic-Con! Panelists include Andy Nguyen from PocketWatch Games, Ian Flood from Yacht Club Games, Persona 5 voice actress Xanthe Huynh, Darrel Delfin, and Metal Gear Solid composer Rika Muranaka. The “How to Succeed as an Indie Game Developer” panel will take place on Saturday, July 22nd at 6:00 p.m. in Room 4.

ABOUT FALLEN LEGION Embark on a personal journey with Princess Cecille and an enigmatic talking grimoire to restore glory to your crumbling home in Fallen Legion: Sins of an Empire for PlayStation 4. Explore gorgeous, hand-drawn lands inhabited by rival soldiers and ferocious dragons. With a team of living weapons at your side, fight enemy hordes and master devastating combo attacks to defeat challenging bosses with the game’s deep combat system.   In Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion for PlayStation Vita you control Princess Cecille’s rival, Legatus Laendur, who is leading an army to overthrow the royal family. These stories told on both platforms complement each other to build the rich universe of Fenumia. Rule your Empire between brutal battles and make gut-wrenching decisions that change the fate of your country and your people. Will you blackmail a prince to gain a strength buff or tax a starving village to revive one of your characters? Fallen Legion pushes players to make difficult decisions and witness the consequences of their choices.

  • A Legion At Your Command – Control up to four characters simultaneously, master devastating combos and counter enemy attacks with a well-timed block in Fallen Legion’s unique battle system.

  • Every Choice Changes Your Empire – Players must make split-second decisions to rule their empire. These choices impact the game’s story.

  • Two Experiences, Two Stories – written by Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward editor Ben Bateman, Fallen Legion shows the scars of war from two perspectives in two different games.

  • Talented Voice Acting Cast – Fallen Legion stars Xanthe Huynh (Persona 5) as Cecille and Darrel Delfin as Laendur. Additional voiceover work by Kira Buckland, Jalen Cassell, Alan Lee, and Dorah Fine.

  • Magnificent 2D Artwork From the fangs on our menacing manticore to each sun-kissed brick in Fenumia’s castle, all of the artwork has been hand-drawn to create a stunning world.

 

Fallen Legion looks like an amazing game, and the preorder bonuses are well thought out and done. We will have a review of Fallen Legion sometime soon on the site.

I have always been a fan of RPG’s and have wanted to at least attempt to make an RPG for awhile. With RPG Maker FES for 3DS which came out on June 27th, I now have that chance. RPG Maker FES is actually quite the robust game. With this maker you can make any sort of RPG you can think of. Although you need to use in game assets it still is quite the treat. Playing this game, I cannot help but think of a myriad of games to make. I just want to delve deep into this maker and show off my worlds that appear in my mind. I feel like I could make countless games, and even honor some of my closest friends with games. This game could certainly take hours of time if played in earnest as it is really quite robust.

Even though you can’t upload your own images you can make any characters you want. Plus, you can really fiddle with the strength of the monsters and make them into whatever you want. You can even set them up into groups and unleash them on your unsuspecting heroes. Making weapons, armor and items is also part of the fun. You can make them godly or weak or anywhere in between. Plus, you can even make your own magic spells. Simply fiddling with these aspects certainly could take awhile as there is so much to twist to your will.

Now, you can always take it easy with samples but it really is the best working things out yourself. This game wants you to succeed and by showing you a sample you figure things out. There aren’t any tutorials so this game really just wants you to work to learn for yourself. Not only can you make maps of various sizes, but you can really do what you want. You really have free reign and that is what makes this game so appealing. You can make as many games as you want and really make them as you wish.

I might not be the biggest fan of maker type games, but there is something about making your own RPG. Having played so many RPG’s it feels good to have my own crack at it. This game is something I feel like I can play when I want and try things out. Just a fun diversion that could lead to fantastic things in the future. Plus, the greatest thing about it is that if you want you can share your games and let others play them. Plus, if they don’t own the game they can still play the games through a small download.

RPG Maker FES is a game that is certainly worth playing for anyone who likes RPG’s. While it might be tedious at times it is certainly something that when you finish it, you will feel good about it.

No GravatarEver Oasis was announced last year at E3 2016 for 3DS. While it has taken awhile the game is finally coming on the 23rd of this year. After a stellar showing of the game at E3 this year we were given a demo to try out before the game’s launch.

Ever Oasis is a beautiful game and is created so wonderfully for the 3DS family of systems. This game involves a young hero named Tethu teaming up with a water spirit named Esna. These two heroes work together to not only stop evil but to revitalize an Oasis.

This game is fun because you not only can grow and replenish an oasis but you get to meet great characters while doing it. There are also dungeons to travel through and many are randomized.

This demo took a little bit of each part of the gameplay to deliver a nice trial. The demo starts with a bit of story and then thrusts you into the life of the main character Tethu.

While exploring this world different villagers will come to visit and ask you to complete quests. In my time playing the demo I was tasked to find a certain amount of an item for a small character, the same race as Tethu.

I was soon approached by a lizard-like character who wanted to join me on my quest. Running through the desert we took down monsters. Finding the cactus pulp we brought it back and she was appeased.

We weren’t done yet and soon ended up in a dungeon, where a third character joined us. My trio worked together to take down foes and then a boss of sorts. There was even something that was not accessible because we didn’t have a shovel.

Heading back having done all this new villager wanted, she professed that she wanted to set up shop in my oasis. Of course, you need to say yes as who doesn’t want a juice shop. It was also revealed that she, in fact, is a master with a shovel.

All in all this demo got me even more excited for this game. You not only get to heal up a horrid desert but you also get to battle enemies and travel through puzzle-filled dungeons.

The characters are well designed and all have their own powers and attitudes. If you haven’t played this demo yet, try it out, the Oasis needs help and you are the only one who can help Tethu and Esna save it!

Ever Oasis comes out on June 23rd for the 3DS Family of Systems!

Bethesda has officially released patch notes for version 1.65.1 of Elder Scrolls Legends.

 

Here is what is new in this version of the game.

Bug Fixes

  • The quest Welcome to Skyrim now progresses and completes as intended (you will need to complete it one final time before it’s replaced by another quest).

  • Silencing a card a second time can no longer be used to return abilities to that card.

  • Creatures that had their keyword(s) stolen and are then silenced are now able to gain the stolen keyword(s) back.

  • Cards that check newly-played creature stats now take static buff abilities into account.

  • Serpentine Stalker now works correctly when a creature with Guard is in the other lane.

  • Thief of Dreams will no longer occasionally show two copies of the same card.

  • Sanctuary Pet now has a summon prompt and its ability can be canceled.

  • Leafwater Blessing can no longer return itself by triggering a Swindler’s Market with a 0-cost copy of it.

    • As it was not immediately communicated whether the Leafwater Blessing interaction was intended, players will be able to Soul Trap versions of Leafwater Blessing and Thieves Guild Fence that were Soul Summoned for their full value in the next game update after this one (not during 1.65.1).
  • Whirling Duelist now correctly applies keywords to damage.

  • Shadowmaster‘s summon ability can now be cancelled and it can no longer target a creature already affected by Shadowmaster’s summon ability.

  • Winterhold Illusionist’s summon ability now has creature return timing that’s consistent with the ability text.

  • Bringer of Nightmares no longer creates a copy of the transformed creature in the owner’s discard pile.

  • Midnight Snack’s dragon cost reduction Last Gasp ability is now reverted when the affected dragon leaves the playmat (such as by entering the discard pile).

  • Night Talon Lord’s stolen creatures with Beast Form abilities no longer activate those abilities if Night Talon Lord breaks a rune.

These are welcome changes and should make the gameplay better.

KEMCO proudly announces the release of Revenant Saga for Wii U set to hit the Nintendo eShop today. Standard prices are USD 9.99 / EUR 9.99 / GBP 8.99 / AUD 13.00.

Story

After his childhood friend’s parents are stricken with the plague, Albert meets one Dr. Moreau, and agrees to participate in a trial experiment for the promise of a potential cure. However, when the experiment itself proves to be a facade for turning humans into revenants and the Rystorian Order suddenly intervenes, Albert is left with the soul of a demon inside him vying for control of his body. Realizing the same mad scientist who tricked him is also responsible for his childhood friend’s death and many others close to him, he sets out on a journey alone to exact revenge on the man who ruined his life…
However, after crossing paths with revenant hunter slash potential valkyrie, Esther, and being pushed into joining her cause, Albert begins to seriously wonder if or how long he will be able to keep his secret from his new companion. To make matters worse, she has been endowed with the very powers capable of vanquishing those like him!

Stunning 3D Battles

Smooth controls and a fluid camera make 3D battles in Revenant Saga stress free and perfect for PlayStation! In addition, powerful skills with brilliant effects enhance the RPG experience like never before! And with auto and semi-auto functions, battles are as simple as the touch of a button!

Features

What you should know: Revenant Saga will incorporate over 30+ hours of gameplay woven around Albert’s elaborate journey. This includes a variety of unique subquests, in-battle transformation systems, as well as a weapon forging system allowing players to make entirely unique weapons!

Kemco has released some great RPGs on the Wii U, 3DS, mobile devices and more platforms. They are great throwback RPGs and offer a great amount of content. This may be worth looking into for fans of the genre who own a Wii U.

The Elder Scrolls series has a long tradition of modding, and one of the most anticipated mods for Skyrim is Skwyind. Skywind is a mod that will completely port Morrowind to the Skyrim engine and rebuild it from the ground up. There will be new voicework, and new music included.

One thing that did cause some concern however was the worry that this mod, which has been in development for years, might not come to the Special Edition PC version. However, The Elder Scrolls Renewal Project has confirmed that the mod will come to special edition as well.

Skywind is still in development and there are no plans to make this a paid mod.

No GravatarHere is something very cool.

We know that the Rainway App is coming to Nintendo Switch, which will allow for PC streaming to the system. The developers of the app have shown a new picture of the app running Witcher 3 on the Nintendo Switch, This opens up so many more possibilities.

It is quite interesting that Nintendo has worked with the devs on this, and hat they are embracing PC streaming to Switch. This is a good sign for Nintendo’s future.

Some bad news for fans of Dragon Quest on the Switch.

Due to Square-Enix  focusing on Dragon Quest XI for 3DS and PS4, the Switch port has been less of a priority.  The developers have revealed that even the initial planning for the Switch port has taken longer than usual, and this is in fact due to the work being done on the PS4/3DS versions.

As such, we may have to wait quite a while.
