    Blood Bowl 2 is Coming

     

    Alright going to be totally honest with you, I'm surprised that there's going to be a second Blood Bowl coming out, but then again maybe it actually stuck with people that weren't me. Blood Bowl is basically a turn-based, humans vs. Orcs, football game filled with violence and guts. The problem is the pacing of the game, at least in the first game was MURDER. It went so slow that the enjoyment I hoped to find in the game quickly evaporated. I will say though, perhaps if they can make it a bit more streamlined, along with the graphics upgrade they are talking about, maybe this will show the franchise has legs.

    Now of course there's no other information out there on the game, but Cyanide Studios promises that they will be coming out with more information down the road so that we can see if it really is for us, or not.

    SMITE God Reveal: Kumbakharna 

    It is time for SMITE to increase their ranks even further, this time it is with Kumbakharna. I'm going to be honest I can't really pronounce the name, but what I can tell you is that he is known as the slumbering giant, and that in SMITE he will be playing the role of Guardian. Now lets get down to his actual stats:

    • Sleepy - Passive
      • Kumbhakarna does not die when he reaches 0 health, instead he falls asleep. He will awaken after 8s at 25% health and mana, unless hit with 6 basic attacks (+1 every 5 levels) while sleeping. This passive has a 240s cooldown.
    • Throw Back
      • Kumbhakarna sleepily runs forward. If he hits an enemy he stops and deals 70/140/210/280/350 +50% of his magical power as damage. If the enemy is a minion, he throws them, and the flying minion deals 90/160/230/300/370 + 60% of his magical power as damage to each enemy it passes through. Cooldown 15s. Cost 60/65/70/75/80.
    • Groggy Strike
      • Kumbhakarna rears back for a heavy smash that roots enemies for 1.5s and deals 50/90/130/170/210 +50% of his magical power as damage. Cooldown 10s. Cost 50/55/60/65/70.
    • Mighty Yawn
      • Kumbhakarna lets out a mighty yawn that mezes all enemies in range for 1.5/2/2.5/3/3.5s. If awakened early from mez, enemies are slowed 40% for 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2s. Kumbhakarna may use this ability while asleep. Cooldown 15s. Cost 70/75/80/85/90.
    • Epic Uppercut
      • Kumbhakarna moves forward a short distance, stopping at the first enemy god he encounters, and delivers a massive melee swing that knocks the enemy directly up into the air for 2.2s. When the enemy god lands, it deals 300/400/500/600/700 +50% of his magical power as AOE damage to itself and Kumbhakarna’s foes, and causes Knockback. Cooldown 60s. Cost 100.

    There of course have been a number of fixes, and tweaks done to the game through this patch, and of course there is a new round of skins. If you'd like the rest of the information I would recommend going to the Release Notes page.

    CCP's World of Darkness Officially Canceled

    I think that it is safe to say that most of us had basically either forgotten about this project, or assumed it was basically dead as CCP continued to come out with new EVE projects, and putting them into production, but since it was announced World of Darkness has basically been silenced. Now of course with this bad news comes even worse, as a result 54 people have been let go. There were a few that were grabbed back into the company for other roles, but the majority of these talented individuals now find themselves unemployed for the time being. For those who were affect, our deepest heartfelt apologies. 

    Now for those who don't know what the hell World of Darkness is, well let me tell you of this pencil and paper RPG maker called White Wolf. They were pretty big back in the day, and they had Vampire: The Masquerade, they had Werewolf, and they had a ton of other entities. They reformulated their different universes so that they could all play in one central one, if people would like to, called World of Darkness 2.0. This of course made it possible for the MMO talks to start. Of course some of you out there are thinking, wait I thought CCP was doing the MMO, not White Wolf. Well the reality of it all is that CCP bought White Wolf, and all its property a while ago. Sure White Wolf still publishes under their label, but CCP is the controlling hand now.

    I actually got interviewed TWICE for positions to work on the World of Darkness game, sadly none of them panned out, but it would have been fun to at least have seen what they had done thus far. I'm sure we're going to see a ton of art assets being released from artist, and I'm sure there will be more as well as the week goes on.

    SuperGiant Games' Next Release, Transistor, Has Launch Date

    Now this is some news that I have been dying to get my hands on. For those of you who don't know who SuperGiant Games is, they are the people behind one of my favorite games, Bastion. Their next entry is a game called Transistor, we talked about it just over a year ago. This game will unfortunately be only coming out to the PlayStation 4, in the console marketplace, but have NO FEAR it is coming out for the PC. So those of you, like myself, who do not have a PlayStation 4, can still rejoice the wait is almost over. I can tell you this right now this is a day of release purchase for me.

    Oh and of course that release date would be May 20th, 2014. The price will be $20.
