I didn’t anticipate to return away from CES 2018 pondering the highlight was a motherboard, however right here we’re. Or perhaps that’s only a signal of CES’s bizarre spiral into the world’s largest SkyMall catalog.

As for video games? Properly, nothing a lot at CES. Darkish Souls is getting a remaster and (hopefully) correct PC port although, Whole Conflict’s bought a second historic recreation releasing this 12 months, Cyberpunk 2077 confirmed indicators of life, Bungie promised enormous modifications to Future 2, Stellaris is including Dying Stars, and extra.

That is gaming information for January eight by means of 12.

Three Kingdoms

Lastly. It’s been a couple of years since we had a correct historic Whole Conflict recreation—Attila was the final, and it launched in the beginning of 2015. The 2 Whole Warhammer video games adopted, and whereas admittedly excellent in addition they marked an enormous departure.

2018’s shaping as much as reward everybody’s persistence although, with not one howevertwo historic video games slated for launch. The primary is the Whole Conflict Saga recreation we’ve mentioned a couple of instances, Thrones of Britannia. This week Inventive Meeting unveiled the subsequent mainline Whole Conflict although, subtitled Three Kingdoms and set within the 12 months 190, amid China’s Han Dynasty. Take a look at the primary trailer:

2077 years of solitude

CD Projekt’s been mainly silent on the subject of Cyberpunk 2077 ever since its first teaser trailer rolled out—in 2013. Nearly half a decade in the past, when you can consider it. There are indicators of life, although. This week the Cyberpunk Twitter account woke from its four-year hibernation to ship out a single phrase: “beep.” 17 thousand retweets for that quick message, so I believe we are able to assume individuals are trying ahead to no matter comes subsequent. Perhaps E3?

Heaven is a spot on Earth

The Rusty Lake sequence has quietly develop into certainly one of my favorites since I first sat down with the weirdly violent Rusty Lake Lodge in 2016, after which the Gothic horror follow-up Rusty Lake Roots later that 12 months. Now? I’m already digging into the newly launched sequel, Rusty Lake Paradise, which appeared this week on Steam—together with this weird and unsettling trailer. Take pleasure in.

Return to Lordran

I’m not too keen on remasters, particularly for video games that simply got here out this previous console era. I’ll make an exception for Darkish Souls, although. The unique PC port continues to be, 5 years later, a half-busted mess—poorly optimized and ugly, locked to 30 frames per second, with shoddy controller help in addition. It’s so damaged, the very first thing anybody does is set up a mod that fixes essentially the most egregious points.
