Sniper Elite 3 has rolled out onto the market in various territories for the home consoles and PC; and while the console version of the game seems to be operating as expected, there are a few problems over in the PC camp.
It seems to be a trend these days to release highly anticipated games and DLC with a nice little smattering of free goodies on the side. That description definitely applies to Overkill Software's latest digital release for Payday 2 called the “Big Bank”.
Using the game's in-engine assets, Overkill Software put together a creative new promotional trailer for Payday 2's upcoming DLC called the Big Bank Heist.
PC Gamer posted up some new visual information for Payday 2's upcoming Big Bank DLC. It follows up on the Armored Transport DLC that recently released not too long ago.
505 Games revealed today that their indie sandbox title Terraria is in development for Xbox One and PS4. They plan to show off the new-gen versions of the game in the near future.
Payday 2 will receive a free "Death Wish" DLC pack today. This add-on provides a brand-new difficulty level to challenge veterans of the co-op shooter.
We don't have an official date on its release, but there's just one small (or rather large) piece of the puzzle that needs to be completed before we're all diving headfirst into Chernarus, surviving, shooting zombies and killing other players on sight, even though some people hate the shoot-on-sight mentality like they hate people who always reference Hitler in subjects where he doesn't belong.
Starbreeze and Overkill Software have sent out word that their venture with 505 Games with publishing Payday 2 turned out to be a massive success, so much so that the entire first month of release for the game was nothing but profit.
Terraria is the sort of game you either play for 10 minutes or for 50 hours. You'll either consider it a directionless waste of time or an engrossing mash-up of Metroid and Minecraft.
I've finally played enough to give an impression on the pros and cons of Payday 2 after Overkill rolled out the latest update and I can firmly say that the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Now if you want a summary of the experience in traditional review format, you can check out Pete's review of Payday 2 right here. What follows is a no-holds-barred look at the good and bad in equal measure.
Overkill Software just released a new patch for the PC version of Payday 2 (poor console gamers still being left in the dust). The patch contains some massive updates, upgrades and fixes to some of the core gameplay mechanics, as well as slight tweaks to some skills, map layouts and the AI.
You know there's a lot of talk about Payday 2, the sequel to Overkill's seminal foray into digital armed robbery, Payday: The Heist. One of the things that's rarely discussed is the actual process in which a perfect heist can take place, where even if things go bad it's still oh-so-good.
Every movie heist is a well-planned disaster. No matter how carefully orchestrated the scheme, something goes awry. A cop arrives at the wrong time or a new security camera was installed in the bank overnight. Payday 2 puts you in the shoes of criminals trying to keep it together when the shit hits the fan. Like the heists it depicts, though, Payday 2 can be a bit of a mess as well.
This is still not a review but we might be getting close... or not. Anyway, Overkill/Starbreeze's PR sent out some review copies of the game to Gaming Blend's staff and we've taken the opportunity to play the game and enjoy some bits. One of the things that really stands out is the AI... yes, the AI.
Following up on all the positive gamer and reviewer feedback, Overkill Software recently revealed that they have a year's worth of DLC planned and that safe house customization will be inbound soon, along with the team looking at the possible integration of Steam Workshop support for mods.
