Greetings NAGunnies, and Happy Easter to all of you (or, for those not religiously inclined, Happy Long Weekend to all of you). I’m chock-full of Easter plans (and chocolate) myself, but I didn’t want to leave you all hanging. So after the jump you’ll find the abbreviated version of This Week In Gaming – a whole lotta videos. Have an awesome weekend and I’ll see you all next week.
Pillars of Eternity is a game that seems to be making some serious RPG waves, and seemingly for good reason. If you’re interested in checking it out, have a look at this video on the first thirty minutes, and how they shape the rest of the game (spoilers etc).
While we’re on RPGs, have a look at this insane Bloodborne play – some kind of RPG wizard cruises through the game killing bosses while not rising above Level 4. I’m linking Part 1 here, the rest of the playlist can be found here.
We switch gears to Mortal Kombat X, to have a look at Sonya Blade’s variations – in case you’re unfamiliar, MKX allows the player to select one of three variations for each character, which gives you a unique set of skills and abilities to work with.
More MKX you say? Kenshi has finally been confirmed as playable in the game – this video breaks down his variations as well.
GTA V throws PC some love this week, with a TV spot showing off the game’s heists on everyone’s favourite platform.
Next up is the curious Karmaflow: The Rock Opera – this video shows a healthy chunk of gameplay, with the Giantbomb crew having a look.
Back to Bloodborne madness again – this time a speedrun of 44 minutes. Exploits are used, of course, but that’s still pretty damned fast.
With the #GamerGate saga churning up all kinds of issues of female representation in video games, nobody seems to quite know how to get it right. Anita Sarkeesian, feminist game critic, has launched a new series in which she looks at games that do exactly that, in a hopes of setting the example for others. You can check out the first episode below.
SteamWorld Heist got a gameplay trailer this week – and it looks like a lot of fun. Check it out:
Post-apocalyptic shooter Suvarium entered Early Access on Steam on Thursday – and I’m sure when I say “post-apocalyptic shooter”, you’re already wondering if it’s actually worth your time. Check out the beta trailer and see for yourself:
