Rocket League is set for a spring release next year

rocket league 
Think soccer, but with rocket-powered battle-cars instead of soccer players.

Some of you might remember Psyonix´s highspeed battle-cars sports/action game "Battle Cars"? Well, now it´s time to take that experience to the next level with "Rocket League". And that means even more intense action, new gameplay modes, vehicles, arenas, more than 100 customization items and much, much more!

Oh, did i mention that Rocket League runs on the Unreal Engine 4? And that Rocket League aims to become a really awesome online experience as well? Anyhow, you will find everything that you need to know about Rocket League down below!

Press release:
San Diego, CA – October 23, 2014 – Psyonix, the respected independent developer responsible for Square Enix’s upcoming hit Nosgoth, unveiled its plans to launch the fast-paced action-sports game Rocket League in spring 2015.

The sequel to the international hit Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League expands on its successful pedigree with improved graphics and physics systems, a robust new single-player campaign, considerable customization options, and a fully-charged multiplayer game geared for a next-generation action- sports experience.

Rocket League Key Features Include:
- New Season Mode: Players now can enjoy a full single-player experience with Season mode, bolstered by extensive vehicle customizations, unlockable items, multiple arenas, and more.
- Fully Upgraded Online, Local and Splitscreen Multiplayer Modes: Fans of the original will love the returning options for two- to four-player competition, from on-the-couch split-screen competition to the robust online play.
- Team-focused Gameplay: Rocket League’s team-oriented play compels gamers to learn short- and long-term tactics and strategies to stay in the game, challenge their friends, and stay atop the monthly leaderboards.
- Physics-driven Vehicle Interactions: Built with rocket-equipped vehicles capable of aerial attacks, passes and shots, and physics-driven ball action, Rocket League is a wild, visceral action-sports experience.
- Content Overload: Rocket League builds upon its predecessor with a healthy array of completely new unlockable vehicles, arenas, more than 100 customization items, and other surprises.
- Dedicated Gameplay Servers: Super-smooth online gameplay guarantees an even better Rocket-Powered Battle-Car experience.
- Broadcast-Quality Replays: Gamers can play with, stylize, and create the ultimate replay of entire games with the new replay system. Fast forward, rewind, or view the action from anywhere in the arena!

“We are excited to let the world know that Rocket League is coming in 2015 with a new set of next-generation upgrades, features and physics systems,” said Dave Hagewood, President, Psyonix. “We believe its unique mix of stunning physics, crazy aerial action, and compelling multiplayer combat will drive our current fan base – and a whole new generation of players – absolutely wild.”

About Rocket League:
Like the 2008 PlayStation®3 original, Rocket League is a futuristic action-sports game where players pilot rocket-powered vehicles in an enhanced version of soccer by driving their vehicles into the ball and other players in a variety of arenas. Rocket League uses an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions between cars and the ball, where mass and momentum determine how hard balls and cars hit each other, creating a unique and visceral playing experience.

Highlands - A turn-based strategy game with RPG elements

Yep, Highlands is inspired by Hayao Miyazaki's "Castle in the Sky".

Burrito studio´s are very, very close to reach their Kickstarter goal of 20,000 CAD now. Because their turn-based strategy/RPG (think Risk meets Hayao Miyazaki's "Castle in the Sky") "Highlands" just needs another 3,000 CAD to happen for real.

But time is running short as we speak. To be exact, there´s just 4 days left on the Kickstarter campaign for Highlands. So i would strongly recommend that you guys show the game some love asap (if you want the game to happen).

And if you´re looking for some convincing gameplay videos. Then just watch the "Let´s play alpha build" video of Highlands.

Press release:
The stunning strategy game *Highlands* has entered its final week on Kickstarter -- with $14,877 toward a $20,000 goal! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/439704341/highlands

Highlands is a turn-based strategy game that mixes “Risk-like” gameplay mechanics with resource management and RPG elements in a world made of thousands of small floating islands. Instead of controlling anonymous armies, players recruit characters with actual personalities and backstories who can *also* level up

Inspired by Hayao Miyazaki's *Castle in the Sky,* Highlands features beautiful hand-drawn graphics with battles taking place over 4 unique areas (countryside, city and docks, industrial district, and citadel interior), crafting, sector-by-sector fighting -- and special Strategic Actions including Support Strike, Skirmish, and Bombardment. The goal is to secure and hold strategic positions at all costs.

Highlands combines a strong narrative with many scripted and random events to create an unforgettable experience (or as one of the backers puts it, “simple mechanics, complex execution on multiple fronts”).

In Highlands, you play the heirs of a royal family overthrown by a mysterious army of bots and mercenaries. To regain control of your land, you must gather what's left of the population and resources, improve the stats of your characters, and build up the resistance. Every character on your side is essential to achieving victory.

* Breathtaking setting composed of picturesque floating islands
* Turn-based strategy game with advanced battle mechanics and resource management
* Units are individual heroes with special traits and abilities
* Beautiful hand-drawn graphics with sectors instead of hex tiles
* Character classes:
- Combatants: protect and attack sectors
- Mechanics: fortify (defend) sectors and craft items
- Leaders: inspire the population, gather resources and recruit new heroes.
- Academics: heal troops & performs research
* Items crafting system
* Story-driven – where player choices have real consequences

* Steam Greenlight URL: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=315532416
* Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux
* Beta demo available in December for backers
* Release date: Early 2015
* Cat contest! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/439704341/highlands/posts/1005733

GamerGate dot me - A neutral page about #GamerGate

#GamerGate is trending all over the world at the moment (big time!).
If you are a reader of ours, then you know that we have written quite a few articles about #GamerGate over the past months. For ex:

The Women Of #GamerGate - The female side of the story:

The truth about #GamerGate and Brianna Wu:

Intel and Gamergate - The Gamergate to hell are still open!:

Gamergate is over - Game over man, game over!:
And quite a lot has happened since we wrote our very first #GamerGate article. Like the fact that there´s a open media war going down against #GamerGate, (aka "The Brianna Wu crusade"). And people are getting doxxed to the left and right, death threats is a every day thing now (on all sides) and people have even lost their jobs for speaking up about #GamerGate.

And still, very few people know what #GamerGate is all about. I can´t blame them though. Because i was confused as well at the very start of the birth of #GamerGate. And that´s where GamerGate.me steps into the picture.

Because GamerGate dot me is a neutral page that´s 100% dedicated to #GamerGate. So you will find all the information that you need to know on that page (plus updated news articles on the subject). So "hopefully" this will enlight (and inform) people about #GamerGate.

That´s at least the whole idea behind GamerGate.me (and my post for that matter).

About GamerGate.me:
In no way are we an official GamerGate website. We are an aggregate website on GamerGate. We aim to be a high quality information source to people following GamerGate or people just learning about it.
What is #GamerGate?
GamerGate is a power struggle over the fate of an $80+ billion industry between two loosely defined groups of people. On one side is the leaderless ragtag consumer revolt of #GamerGate, comprised of those who identify themselves as gamers and those who are sympathetic to the concerns of gamers. On the other side is a tight-knit network of journalists, PR reps, and media socialites who have explicitly disclosed their hatred of the gamer identity and their complete lack of respect for gamers. #GamerGate supporters sometimes refer to this clique as ‘Social Justice Warriors’ or as ‘SocJus’ (a reference to IngSoc from Orwell’s 1984).

Motte Island - When fear calls you better answer!

motte island
Motte Island is easily worth $5 imo.

People have been asking us to write more about horror games (and record more horror related video games). So that´s exactly what i will do here and now. By informing you guys about  Gamebell Studio´s really neat 2D top-down horror game "Motte Island" (which you can buy via Steam for $5).

And i have to say that Motte Island looks (and feels) like a mix of GTA2 (minus the cars and the gangsters), Silent Hill and Nocturne. So if that´s youre cup of tea, then you should give Motte Island a go! 

About Motte Island:
Motte Island is a 2D top-down horror game. If you enjoy adventures, top-down game with a hint of horror in it, Motte Island is for you. It has numerous features including but not limited to various puzzles and mini games contained within. It is as exciting as exploring an actual paradise island.

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse - Out now for 3DS and Wii U!

shantae and the pirates curse
It´s times such as this that i really wish that i had a Wii U (or a 3DS).

I just woke up to the news that WayForward Technologies has finally released their much longed platform game "Shantae and the Pirate's Curse". In fact, the game was released yesterday (for 3DS and Wii U). Jake Kaufman´s soundtrack for the game, was however released today (via Bandcamp, name your price!).

Me, i would love to own both the game and the OST =) Sadly enough though, i don´t own a Wii U or a 3DS. So i just have to wait for a iOS port. I´m also waiting for "Shantae: Half-Genie" to happen (which had a great success on Kickstarter).
And oh! If you didn´t know this by now. Cristina Vee (BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, Dynasty Warriors 7 and 8, Heroes of Newerth with many many more!) voices Cristina Vee Shantae in Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. So there you have it! So, will you guys pick up Shantae and the Pirate's Curse and the OST?

"AX annoucement 2: When you pick up Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, you'll hear me voicing Shantae!"Cristina Vee

About Shantae and the Pirate's Curse:
Embark on a brand new adventure with Shantae, the hair-whipping belly dancing genie! When Shantae loses her genie magic, she must join her nemesis, the nefarious pirate Risky Boots in order to save Sequin Land from an evil curse. As a pirate, Shantae gains new weapons and tools to advance her quest, slay monsters, battle epic bosses …and hopefully get her magic back in the bargain! But can she really trust her most deadly enemy?

The Women Of #GamerGate - The female side of the story

not your shield
The female Gamers (and devs) is fed up with being shields for other peoples agendas and personal gains.

There´s now a open war against #GamerGate. And in case you have missed out on all the action that´s been going down lately. Both Brianna Wu and Anita Sarkeesian has declaired war on #GamerGate (Wu wants #GamerGate to get shut down. And Sarkeesian aims to "fix" the industry. Zoe Quinn on the other hand, is way to busy earing indiegogo bucks together with Polygon).

And then we got all the lies that´s been told on TV (MsnBC, Matt Binder). The list goes on and on. But here´s the interesting thing. While media and the Anti #GamerGate movement talks about misogyny, sexism and death threats of female devs.

Very few (to none) has taken the time to actually ask (interview) the female Gamers and devs directly. To let them give their side of the story about #GamerGate and #NotYourShield. But thankfully enough, there´s a handful of friendly minded individuals that has taken matters into their own hands (so to speak).

So i toke the liberty to add some really good videos and articles (imo) that covers the female side of #GamerGate and #NotYourShield. So i hope that you guys will enjoy them =)

Outland 17: Void of Liberty - A really uniq sci-fi tactical RPG

outland 17
Outland 17 might just become the next "big" thing when it comes to tactical games.

It seems like Grenade Tree Games are working on something rather interesting and uniq. I´m of course talking about their upcoming sci-fi/tactical RPG game "Outland 17". Which imo looks like a mix of X-COM, sci-fi and the American civial war.

And Outland 17 looks pretty darn good as well. I also love the fact that you can customize weapons, your gear, perks, and your squad members as you please. And that really gives you the ability to create uniq battle units. So i can´t wait to see more videos from Outland 17.

Or more so, to play it myself ;)

About Outland 17:
Outland 17 is a turn-based tactical RPG that takes inspiration from other genres such as tactics games and shooters. Each battle is a different experience because of the character load outs, environment, and tactics used.

Every squad member can be customized with unique weapons, armor, attachments, perks, and skill sets to support an assortment of playstyles. With classes ranging from deadly snipers to resilient melee warriors, you choose the composition of your squad to best handle whatever challenges Outland 17 throws at you.

Be prepared to fight on any battleground such as wide open fields, confined hallways, chaotic warzones, and more. Take cover, shoot explosive barrels, fire turrets, and do whatever it takes to gain a tactical advantage.
