Now, out of nowhere, Stoic has placed a release date on the long awaited The Banner Saga 2. The news comes by way of a Steam Community post by one of the team members of Stoic Studio. The second installment in the epic will hit PC and Mac via Steam on April 19th.
In Act II, Scene VII of As You Like It, Jacques, a nobleman who lives in the Forest of Arden, recites an illustrious monologue to Duke Senior: “All the world’s a stage, / And all the men and women merely players; / They have their exits and entrances, / And one man in his time plays many parts, / His acts being seven ages.”
Traditionally, Helios and Selene work together, creating the dynamic day-night cycle; as siblings of the Titan Hyperion, Selene and Helios—along with their sister, Eos, the goddess of Dawn—existed in harmony. Until Helios burned Selene and set Eos ablaze, attempting to rule Earth for himself. At least, that’s the reality Kitfox Games create in Moon Hunters.
You’ve survived eight days so far, but you’re running out of food and water. As you meander through this desolate wilderness, scavenging for whatever little materials you can find, you come across a few rabbits; you craft some snares to trap them. After skinning the dead rabbits, you notice your body temperature rapidly decreasing—quickly, you build a campfire to sit.
I would like to think my fiancé and I like each other. We enjoy each other’s company, I hope.
I’ve known her for almost nine years now. I remember the day we met. The New York Giants became Super Bowl champions, beating the New England Patriots. Taylor Swift was still a country singer. Family Guy and American Dad were only supposed to run until 2012—good thing that didn’t happen. Bill Gates stepped down as Chairman of Microsoft. OJ Simpson was convicted for kidnapping and armed robbery, and sentenced to 33 years in prison. In the midst of all this cultural change, I was a teen right out of the factory, pristine box, packaged with tons of angst and apathy. I transferred schools to be with my girlfriend of a year and a half, who then promptly broke up with me on my 15th birthday, a birthday I lucidly remember as being horrific—because it was. Surprisingly, the ex, a b*stard-disguised-as-benevolent person, gave me a girl’s number; this very girl I have been with for almost eight years now. And after playing a few races of Super Toy Cars with my fiancé, I think we’re ending our relationship. (Not really, but she was certainly mad—and it was hilarious.)
I’m tired. It’s late. It’s been a long day. After working a grueling ten hour shift, standing around, walking the floor, assisting customers, dealing with the everyday vitriol of people, and being incessantly berated by my supervisors, I just want to go home. Clock out. Close down. Lock up. It’s time to go. Get me out of here. I trudge to my car, embracing myself in the chilly dark of nighttime. What time is it, 10pm?
An escape is what I need.
Life, with its overbearing impossibilities and uncertainties, its rollercoaster relationships, its disconcerting and often times discouraging happenings and mishappenings is too much to withstand. A quiet, simple life is much more enticing. The rush of the world, the hum of the city streets, the rattle of train tracks, the chirping of birds, the reverberation of chatter, the echoes of silence can create a sensory overload. There is too much going on all the time. Too many voices. Too many [unnatural] sounds. Too many disruptions.
Picture this: John Rambo, Cordell Walker, Indiana Jones, Angus MacGyver, Blade, Robocop, Ash Williams, The Terminator—all of your favorite action stars from those corny, hyper-masculine, action-packed films of the 80s and 90s coming together in one ultra hyper-masculine, corny, over-the-top action-packed thrill ride.
With EA receiving such bad rep for the faulty launch of Battlefield 4, the ever-popular Battlefield franchise decided to take its game in a slightly different direction from your standard “military/country so and so invading yada yada” FPS formula.
Being released on the PC last year, those of the “master race” had a chance to play it first while console gamers where left wondering when they would get their chance to die. If they did not have a PC, then Rogue Legacy was unplayable—until now.
It is apparent that single player campaigns and engrossing stories are starting to become a thing of the past. With winning over two hundred game awards, The Last of Us came out swinging when it was released last year on the PS3.
With inFamous: Second Son being such a hit, people were curious what Sucker Punch had up their sleeve.

Coming off Gamescom, one of the biggest (and most controversial) announcements was Microsoft claiming Square and Crystal Dynamic’s Rise of the Tomb Raider.
