LawBreakers and Radical Heights developer Boss Key Productions is shutting down after four years, studio co-founder Cliff Bleszinski confirmed last night, citing difficulties to “gain traction” in the market.
Drunken Master was supposed to be a monthly column. The problem is that drunken inspiration can strike at any time. And, also, it’s hard to keep track of how long ago I wrote the last one. But I’m back, I’m drunk, and I’m a master. So here we go. BUT before I ask you to commit to hitting the jump, I’ll give you one sentence explaining what’s to come: single-player games where they bounce you between multiple protagonists are (naughty word your dad says when he thinks you aren’t listening) stupid and I hate them and I’m going to pour myself another whiskey.
Divinity: Original Sin. It’s the smart man’s Diablo, innit? Actually, I wouldn’t know – I’ve only just bought it, literally three minutes ago, as it’s currently discounted on the Xbox Live Marketplace. But from what I’ve heard, when it comes to RPGs, it’s the bee’s balls. People with actual full beards told me that, so I’ll take it as gospel. ANYWAY, the sequel is surely even MORE bee’s ballsier, and it’s coming to consoles later this year. BUT…

A film based on Capcom’s hugely popular (with everyone except Tarryn) Monster Hunter franchise is going into production in September this year, with shooting set to take place right on our doorstep, in Cape Town, South Africa. The movie will star Resident Evil alumna Milla Jovovich, and will be directed by her husband, another Resident Evil veteran, Paul W.S. Anderson.
As I slide the Xperia XZ2’s box open for the first time, I’m wondering to myself whether this is going to be a frontrunner in the flagship game, or an expensive paperweight let down by flawed design. Sony has sometimes missed the mark when it comes to the flagship market (Sony Z5, I’m not talking about you).
Thankfully, with the XZ2, Sony sails through the pack like a Viking ship ready to pillage all the villages.
Destiny 2’s Warmind DLC dropped last week, and with it, new secrets. Like, why are there only four new campaign missions when the brevity of the previous expansion was one of its worst features, and how have they not even fixed the empty Tower problem. But, perhaps more intriguingly, a puzzle in the AI Warmind Rasputin’s bunker that revealed a series of actual coordinates to… something.
Greetings NAGyrutians, and thanks for coming back for This Week In Gaming. I’ve been out of the game (huehue) for a bit, but we shall be returning to your regularly scheduled programming. In the meantime, catch up on the week’s events in the lazy-man’s format – a video anthology.
This Mosh Pit is somewhat inspired by Mother’s Day, which if you aren’t looking at your calendars in panic right now, is on 13 May (this Sunday!). Moms are awesome, and maybe you’ve got a cool, awesome mom who might like something different for Mother’s Day this year. We’ve got a few ideas for you in this episiode of Mosh Pit, from a survival strategy game set on Mars that can become a dystopian nightmare in just a few sols, to kick-ass hoodies, and even some excellent instrumental rock.
