Randal's Monday Now Available for Pre-Order with Extras

So you might have noticed that the influx of information revolving around Randal's Monday has been increasing over the weeks, well its time to tell you that you have the chance of not only pre-ordering the game, but if you do so through Steam or GOG you'll get a little something extra for your trouble. Seriously though, who doesn't like to get free stuff immediately upon pre-ordering a game that you won't be able to get immediately. 

Alright so what are the deals, I did outline that there are two different places to get the game, and of course each place has their own deal going on, so let us start with Steam:

all pre-order purchases receive a free copy of the Daedalic adventure Edna & Harvey: The Breakout.

store.steampowered.com/app/314810/

Now let us see what GOG has to offer for a pre-order:

 everyone pre-ordering Randal’s Monday can choose between Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, Deponia or A New Beginning: Final Cut.

So some very interesting choices, now it is easy to see that GOG has the wider variety of options, but at the same time, I personally, focus in on the Steam one because that's where all my games are, already. Well anyways I'm sure you want to know how deep of a hit this is going to be to your wallets, well here's the breakdown in quite a few different currencies:

For 24.99US$/ 22.99 €/ 18.99 £ /449RUR the digital editions of Randal’s Monday will include the game for PC & Mac, as well as an extended interview with Clerks-Stars Jeff Anderson and Jason Mewes, who are both voice acting in the game, a digital calendar and the soundtrack.

Whoops I forgot to tell you the release date, which is really close, so you're going to have to make a move to get this game and the free game. The release date for Randal's Monday is November 12th, 2014.

EA's MOBA Dawngate Has Been Canceled

Speaking of MOBAs, it would appear that a victim, from a very recognizable name, has been canceled. That's right folks, Dawngate, a MOBA that was meant to push boundaries, and was meant to not be another League of Legends clone (not sure who that statement was pointed at). Unfortunately after 6 months of open beta it would appear that EA is ready to pull the plug. They were cited as stating that the progress was not where it should have been, so they have learned from this endevour and will move forward.

Now of course, if you were, are, or ever wanted to see what Dawngate was about EA is not shutting everything down tonight, they will give all players the next 90 days to squeeze as much as they want out of the game by following this link.

Now of course comes they bad news, you see EA is a publisher, they have been for a while, so this game actually falls to a developer, and that developer is WayStone Games. There has not been any mention of what will happen to this group, but with this being their only title to their name, I'm going to guess the EA ax is not far behind. Hopefully they will be absorbed into other parts of EA, but you never know.

Robot Entertainment Hints at Next Closed Beta of Orcs Must Die! Unchained

So I know that we have had quite the explosion of MOBAs, and it seems like any game that might have an outside chance of making a MOBA move, and some that are completely out of left field, are doing it. Well of course that counts for Orcs Must Die! Unchained. They have gone through the first round of closed beta and are making changes, tweaks, and more to the overall game. Now of course the next round is still a ways off. They are actually targeting February 2015, but that doesn't mean that you are going to be left completely in the dark. 

What you can do is you can sign up right now for a chance of being considered for the next round, or of course get the Founder's package which will of course set you up for the rest of the game. You can also tune into their weekly show on Twitch, which happens on Tuesdays starting at 3 PM EST.

So if you are interested in seeing what this game has to offer, definitely be vigilant to pull in all the info you can find so that you know how awesome this game, will hopefully, be.

Enter the Shadowside: Destiny is KickStarting Right Now

 

Alright, new plan, if I deem it worthy of me kickstarting, I'm going to tell you about it. So here's the first of, I hope for creative geniuses out there, Altered Confusion backs this KickStarter. Now I will fully admit that Enter the Shadowside has already met its goal, and now its cruising to see where else it can go, but this is the time where the fun, excitement, and unfortunately, if the creator isn't careful, the trouble begins. As of right now, when I'm posting this project is just over $2000, and they have 25 days to go, so that means that there's still a good amount of time for you to jump in on this. 

Now the stretch goals are VERY specific to the game, so don't expect a ton of random posters, tshirts, figurines, etc.

  • At $2,000: A free novel in PDF format: The Red Wolf, by Shawn L. Koch. This novel is based on the actual campaign we ran together while testing Enter the Shadowside, and the Setting Module of the same name already included in the core book.
  • At $3,000: A new Setting Module in PDF: The Chaos Engine, which takes place during World War II. Before Scavenger and Accelletrix: see the birth of the Greater Thelema Society, the death of the Brotherhood of Pharos, and the transformation of the Cult of Fujin.
  • At $4,000: A new Setting Module in PDF: The Light at the End of the World, which takes place during the dark ages. See the Brotherhood of Pharos carry its noble mission, and see Malleus Diaboli hunt the precursors of the Sisterhood, and perhaps delay Judgement Day for the first time. 
  • At $5,000: A new Setting Module in PDF: A Machine Against the Dark, which takes place in the year 2,222. See a possible future where technology and magic mix to terrible and wondrous ends.

Now I know that this isn't a digital game, it is a roleplaying game that utilizes the Destiny system, a system that uses playing cards, but that doesn't mean that this game cannot be played in an online forum via hangouts and Skype, so do not fear the non-digital-ness of the game, and join in backing it.

Uber Entertainment Hit with Layoffs

Well I guess its almost the holiday season so the layoffs are now starting. Nothing against Uber Entertainment, it just appears that they might be the first domino to fall as the Holiday Season truly invades our lives. Now there isn't a concrete number being given out to the public, but it would appear that one of the artists that was at Uber Entertainment tweeted out:

@chelsea_douglas: Layoffs at Uber Ent today. Please reach out if you are seeking talent to add to your team. I have a list of names, folios and contact infos.

Now the talk is that this is the results of Uber Entertainment's failed second KickStarter project Human Resources. The thing is that there are many people out there who bought into the Planetary Annihilation KickStarter project and were disappointed with what the game is. Even after Uber promised it would be a completely separate team, it wasn't able to gain enough support. So the thought is that the layoffs pertain to the team that was there for Human Resources, but that is just a guess.
