The new season of Apex Legends Mobile introduces new modes and an exclusive Legend

The new season of Apex Legends Mobile launched this week, entitled DISTORTION, bringing a new, mobile-first Legend with it. Her name is Rhapsody, and while the proclaimed Rhythm Singer may not sound like the best fit for the battlefield, she comes equipped with a devastating array of support skills for her team. Rhapsody worked as a DJ from Komma, a place where the tech giant Pythas runs everything. Using her love of music, Rhapsody managed to rise out of the dangerous nightlife district, Neon Dunes, and earn a spot in the Apex Games alongside her companion AI Rowdy. Her passive, Gifted Ear, visualizes sounds from an extended range. Her Tactical, Hype Anthem, will speed up nearby squadmates…

The debut game from Finnish developers Playsome brings a fun new tactic twist to the fantasy genre

New developers Playsome have released their first game after two years in development entitled Friends & Dragons. A turn-based strategy game, Friends & Dragons takes influence from tabletop gaming with its own unique twist to provide an easy to enter but hard-to-master playtime. The roots of Friends & Dragons are pretty easy to see; there is a group of heroes from different fantasy races who all band together and enter some dungeons to do battle with dragons. It would have been easy at this point to throw together a turn-based system and churn out another fantasy clone, however, Playsome took the genre and added a fairly interesting gameplay twist. Taking place on a board, th…

Torchlight: Infinite aims to brings a truly customisable playstyle to gaming

When playing a video game it is nice to make a playstyle that can be called your own. However, with the limited choices in most games, it is hard to be a bit different and have a unique build. Enter Torchlight: Infinite. The developers have built the game with a focus on providing players with a huge array of options to make their playstyle as unique as possible. In Torchlight 2, the skill tree was pretty robust. Each class had 3 skill branches which in turn had 7 active skills and 3 passive. Skill points could be allocated wherever desired in order to build a highly customised loadout. As deep as this was, there were still some limitations on just how varied you could be, but for Infinite…

T3 Arena launches latest update, introducing new character and new guild function

It has been just over a month since XD Entertainment released its 3v3 shooter T3 Arena, and the early consensus seems quite promising, garnering near-universal acclaim. Looking to capitalize on the launch successes, XD has released the latest patch, which includes a whole new character and a bunch of quality of life improvements for players to really get the best out of the game. When T3 Arena released, it seemed that XD Entertainment was really trying to push the team aspect of the game with their built-in voice chat. Most of these games only offer text or quick chat which isn't always accessible during combat, so having its own voice functionality was a big plus. Now, T3 Arena has introdu…

Smoking Gun celebrates the Roswell Incident with biggest update to date for Phobies

It has been 75 years since aliens unequivocally and definitely landed on our planet during the Roswell Incident, and game developers Smoking Gun are celebrating the anniversary by releasing a plethora of alien based horrors into their strategy game Phobies. Joining the ranks of creepy clowns and dangerous muffins, aliens have now arrived to terrorize any traumatised child who watched the Ridley Scott classics with its chest-bursting delights. Ever since the US Army managed to recover their completely innocent, suspiciously shiny and flat looking weather balloon with all its flashing lights back in 1947, there has been a major uptick in alien interest across all forms of media. Aliens were b…
