City of Brass Announced by Uppercut Games

City of Brass Announced by Uppercut Games

Indie developer Uppercut Games, a team comprised of former Bioshock developers, has announced their latest adventure ‘City of Brass’. This upcoming first person rouguelite adventure puts an Arabian Nights twist on the genre that’s a welcomed change from the typical dungeon delves. The City of Brass is an extremely dangerous place for wary adventurers but can prove rewarding for those who take on what lies beneath the sand. Players can expect to take on a variety of dangerous spirits and be forced to avoid deadly traps on their quest to achieve wealth beyond their wildest dreams.

The player will take the role of a determined and cunning thief armed only with a trusty scimitar and a whip which can be used to disarm, trip, or stun enemies. Gameplay sounds very much like the Prince of Persia series, requiring the hero to swing across gaps, climb up objects, and destroy barricades in his journey to lay claim to the countless treasures. Traps will also be littered throughout the procedurally generated map including sharp blades to slide under, spears that must be dodged, and the stereotypical arrows coming out of holes in the wall. Players will also have to avoid crumbling ledges and poison gas traps, but all of these obstacles can be used to gain an advantage over enemies, if approached tactically.

Final Thoughts

The team behind the game sounds incredibly passionate about the project with the lead designer, Ed Orman offering more insight into the game, “Developing a game with multiple, interacting systems that players can freely combine feels like a return to our roots, drawing on our experiences working on BioShock and many of our other favorites. Players must learn how to use the traps to kill their foes, and even turn enemies against each other. You’ll perish in the City of Brass – often, and quite horribly – but as your skills improve and you discover new ways to cheat death, you’ll return to fight another day.”

This adventure is expected to release this fall and we here at Gigamax can’t wait to start our journey through the desert. It is always exciting to see a passionate group of indie developers take on a dream project, and that’s exactly what this game sounds like it will be. This title is sure to impress so be sure to keeping check back for more information on City of Brass!

Destiny 2 – How Bungie Plans To Improve

Destiny 2 – How Bungie Plans To Improve

Destiny 2 is nearly here and Activision shared some thoughts on how they plan to improve on the game’s design. The  original Destiny has been an insanely popular shooter ever since it dropped on the PlayStation 4 in 2014. The great graphics and exciting gameplay were able to keep players interested for a while but the community thrived on new DLC and post-release content. Slow to release and sometimes a let down, the community wanted more from these costly expansions and Destiny 2 is expected to address these issues.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg shared some important thoughts with GI.biz, and it could point to more frequent and higher quality post-release content for Destiny 2. “I have not been happy with the cadence [of new content].” Hirshberg said. He continues on to explain “We got a lot right with Destiny 1, but one of the things we didn’t do was keep up with the demand for new content. I feel like that, as great as [DLC packs] The Dark Below. House of Wolves, The Taken King, and Rise of Iron all are, clearly there was appetite for more.” http://bit.ly/2uHGRqi

Teamwork Makes The Dream Work

They aren’t just going to set big goals without any planning. Activision created a team of different studios to work alongside Bungie to produce higher quality and more plentiful content. High Moon, developers of the previous-gen versions of Advanced Warfare and Vicarious Visions which has up until now been exclusively working on the Skylanders series will be included on the new Destiny 2 post-release content team. Both of these developers are experienced and High Moon already has experience working with Bunie with the original Destiny.

It would be nice to see more quality and expansive DLC’s for Destiny 2 after release. What would be even better is if Destiny 2 comes with a healthy amount of content on its own. We’re in a new era of gaming where DLCs drive the success of nearly any game forward. However, it is nice to see a developer strive to make these industry standard game additions worthwhile for the gamers.

With more information coming out about Destiny 2 almost every day, be sure to check back on Gigamax for the latest gaming updates.

ARMS – Nintendo Switch Playlist

ARMS – Nintendo Switch Playlist with Gigamax Games

ARMS, Nintendo’s new I.P., is finally here and it was well worth the wait. This intense fighter is truly a unique mix of mechanics and chaos. Outfitted with springy arms, the goal is to knock out your opponent before they have the chance to take you out. Jumping around the selection of arenas, players fling their arms at a distance and curve the punches to eliminate their opponent. Barriers located around the ring offer players the chance to wrap their enemies arms up and counter with a devastating blow.

Multiplayer Modes and More!

That was only one of the multiplayer options the game has to offer. V-ball and Hoops are the other game types available. V-ball is literally volleyball but instead of a ball, players play with a bomb on a timer. Once the short timer ends, the orb drops wherever it’s located and a point is scored. Players fight, not with each other, but to keep the ball in the air and on their opponents side of the net.

Hoops, a Gigamax favorite is a variation of half-court basketball, without the ball. Players fight for the opportunity to grab their opponent and either slam-dunk their enemy for two points or launch them across the arena for their chance at a three-pointer.

These game modes and the variety of fighters offer gamers a chance to spend hours throwing extended punches while never getting bored. ARMS truly shines when played with a friend, providing some nail-biting matches. Nintendo has done it again, developing an addictive fighter with some loveable characters.

Necromancer Ready For Its Debut

Necromancer Ready For Its Debut

Finally, Blizzard announces a release date for the Necromancer in Diablo 3. Expected to drop June 27th, both long time Diablo fans and those new to the series are ecstatic about the news. For a long time, Diablo 3 players were promised this new class with very little information on when they will actually receive the update. But now, the time has come.

Gamers will only have to wait a few days to get their hands on the expansion. Those looking for an excuse to redownload or pick the game up again, now have the perfect reason to go back. Even though the class was compared to the Witch Doctor, the developers had to make some changes to the core game to accommodate its unique gameplay.

The Necromancer Stands Out

Let’s take a look at what makes the necromancer stand out and why it might have taken so long to make it available to everyone. One of the main obstacles the developers had to hurdle was the lack of corpses in the original release. When Travis Day, Sr. Game Designer was asked about this, he explained they added enemy corpses when a necromancer is on the map. This may have been one of the leading causes of the hold up in regard to its release.

While the necromancer may have been a headache for the developers, it’s also a treat for the community. A melee focused Necromancer will still be possible in Diablo 3 and the popular summon, Golems will be making an appearance. Unfortunately they will be taking out the poison aspect of the class but the bone skill tree will remain.

There’s Always More At Gigamax!

If you’re a Diablo fan or curious about Diablo 3, jump over to the Diablo Let’s Play Page. There you will find a bunch of videos covering different Diablo 3 updates and discussion surrounding the once elusive Necromancer update.

Check back on Gigamax Games soon for even more information and videos surrounding the upcoming Diablo 3 update.

Call of Cthulhu: Question Your Sanity

Call of Cthulhu: Question Your Sanity

Call of Cthulhu is a unique take on the horror genre, mixing a bit of Lovecraft with some Sherlock Holmes and wraps it up in an RPG package. Developed by the seasoned studio, Cyanide Games, they have referred to their game as an “RPG investigation game blending psychological horror and stealth mechanics in a deeply immersive world.” The narrative behind Call of Cthulhu is based on the old short story of the same name by H.P. Lovecraft and the developer is doing wonders for the source material.

call of cthulhu

Uncovering Secrets and Strange Encounters

Players will fill the role of Edward Pierce, a private detective who’s main goal is to discover the truth behind the death of a prominent local artist and her family. Pierce has always been able to trust his instincts but after a series of whale mutilations and missing bodies, things are starting to get fishy. As you get closer to discovering the cult that worships The Great Dreamer, better known as Cthulhu, reality will bend and break and the player will not be able to trust anything.

The game plays much like one of the Amnesia titles and mind bending reality is just the start of the spooky things the player will encounter throughout their journey. Darkwater Island is also home to a mysterious cult that may or may not have octopus like faces and definitely wants to murder intruders. With only a lantern by their side, players will have to avoid these angry octopus men and Cthulhu himself when the game releases this year on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

Final Thoughts

We’re very excited to play this game and the trailers Cyanide Games have shown off give the impression that a lot of love has been put into this title. Call of Cthulhu is obviously crafted by a team that has done their research. For a better impression of what it will play like, check out the trailer from E3 2017 below and for news on everything gaming keep checking back with Gigamax Games!

Absolver Is Almost Here: What To Expect

Absolver Is Almost Here: What To Expect

Fighting games and more fighting games, they’ve been on a roll. From For Honor to Injustice then around to Tekken 7, the industry continues to embrace this classic format.  Sloclap, the developer of the new title Absolver wanted to do something a bit different. Absolver is a break from the norm and it looks as though there will be plenty of content to enjoy. Things have been relatively quiet in regard to media coverage but it’s quickly picking up as the release date approaches.

Sloclap and Insight

Sloclap is a new studio made up of former Ubisoft Paris developers. Absolver will be their first title and they’re already making waves with their “online combat RPG”.  sloclap, absolver, latest games, gigamax, gigamax games

“We think the world would be a much better place if there were no guns,” creative lead Pierre de Margerie.  He continues, “Then we could finally focus on important things, like sword fighting and how to kill a man with one punch.” http://bit.ly/2ryPeWG

What’s Different? 

Players will have the option of choosing between three different classes or ‘styles’. The first is the Forsaken style which has a concentration on parrying. The Kahlt Method’s special ability allows them to absorb damage. Finally, Windfall style is a master in avoiding attacks. Each one of the three different styles uses their special ability to set up special combinations to destroy their enemy.

Though these are the three main styles, according to the trailer there are others to be found as players advance through the game. Beyond just being able to choose different styles, there is even more customization in regard to specific moves for each variation.

sloclap, absolver, latest games, gigamax, gigamax games

It may seem like just another fighting game but Absolver does something a little bit different that could mean big things for the genre as a whole. Dubbed a multiplayer combat RPG, players can group up to fight their way through dungeons. This could add an interesting element to the game, making it more than just another fighter.

Expected to drop on PS4 and PC on August 29th, it won’t be long until gamers get their hands on this unique fighter. The first time the world got a hint of Absolver was E3 last year and people have been patiently waiting to see what this game has to offer. With little coverage, the trailer gives a decent look at the different combat styles and mechanics.

Come take a step into the world of Absolver and learn about the Prospects journey as they hone their combat skills.

Big News, Stay Tuned!

Gigamax Games was lucky enough to be put on the watch list for a review copy of Absolver. We have our fingers crossed and hope that we’re able to offer a preview into how the game actually plays. We’ll be keeping a close eye on this anticipated fighter and will report back with any updates or insight into Sloclaps new release.

Fighting games have always have a special place in the gaming communities heart. They continue to perform well and the new powerful consoles allow these developers to add in even more exciting content. Be sure to check back on GigamaxGames.com to keep updated on any new information, the review and Absolver gameplay.

All out excitement when playing as Jason, teleporting around the map performing gruesome kills and absolutely thrilling when playing as a counselor, Friday the 13th: The Game has a lot to offer. The game works by putting eight people together in a group, one person is randomly chosen to be Jason while the others play as counselors. The counselors need to survive the 20 minute matches using their wits or the items scattered throughout one of the three maps. Jason’s goal is to hunt the counselors down and stop them from escaping. There really is no win or lose, just survive or die. Server issues are still a concern, but consistent maintenance patches are expected.
