The annual Game Developers Conference will be arriving this month like always, and we will be there like always as well. This year is already shaping up to be a pretty awesome one with some of the games we will be going hands-on with while running around like crazy. So here is an idea of what we will be checking out during GDC and, of course, if there’s anything you want us to scope out or have questions you want us to ask a specific developer, do let us know.
Earlier this month Webzen announced that their mobile MMORPG called MU: Origin would be getting a Western release in the near future and that they were going to start beta testing the game for the West. Well the first closed beta was held last week, ending very early this morning. We were fortunate enough to be a part of that closed beta, letting us go hands on with the upcoming Western version of MU: Origin.
So this week GameStop will be hosting their yearly expo showcasing all sorts of gaming related goodness. We like to think of it as a sort of mini E3 each year, which is basically is. So what can you expect to see from the GameStop Expo this year?
We have reported on Madfinger Games’ next big release called Unkilled a few times already, keeping an eye on the game’s development. We’ve even gone hands-on with a very early build earlier this year. However at Gamescom we were able to get more hands-on time with a much more complete build of Unkilled.
Just before the start of Gamescom this year Vivid Games announced the official sequel to their Real Boxing game for mobile called Real Boxing 2. Since then we had the opportunity to meet up with Vivid Games to check out Real Boxing 2 and to learn more about what all will come with the game.
On the weekend that just passed, the Action-RPG title that’s currently in development for mobile devices called Angel Stone went into a short closed beta period. If you managed to sign up for it, then there was a good chance you ended up being able to play the game. The closed beta period only lasted three days (Friday-Sunday) so people participating in it had to stuff as much gameplay time into it that they could in those three days.
A couple of days ago we reported on the upcoming cross-platform MMORPG Albion Online and the fact that the Summer Alpha had started. This is the second testing phase for this game this year, with the first being back in January/February this year. If you currently own an Epic or Legendary Fonuder’s Pack, even if you purchase one right now, you can access this Summer Alpha phase.
Snail Games has revealed their entire E3 2015 line-up today alongside their earlier announcement regarding their upcoming Age of Wushu Dynasty game for mobile devices. So what will Snail Games be showing off at this massive video game industry event?
One of the games we were very eager to try out during GDC 2015 was NetherRealms’ Mortal Kombat X for Android devices. When we got to where the game was being shown, it was in a nice dark conference room behind closed doors with both the console version as well as the mobile version being available to play. Without wasting any time we went over to the table where all the tablets were, sat down, and began playing Mortal Kombat X while talking to one of the developers working on the project.
When people here the term Puzzle-RPG, generally one thinks of an RPG title meshed with a match-3 puzzle game. Dungeon Link from Gamevil is a Puzzle-RPG but is actually a bit of a different type of game then you would think with it being in that genre. In fact the puzzle aspect of this game is actually a lot more action-based then you would expect it to be.
