New York, NY – September 16, 2014 – Clazz Games, a mobile video game publisher, and developer Raincrow Studios announced today the launch of Vampire Tribunals. Featuring mobile multi-player combat, Vampire Tribunals is a supernatural experience where vampire fantasies are no longer dreams, they are real.
Like “Google’s” popular “Ingress”, Vampire Tribunals is tailored to take advantage of the geo-location features of smart phones. But instead of monuments and portals, Vampire Tribunals reveals the real world to be filled with vampires and demons living among us. Stay in your neighborhood, zoom out to see the playing field or transport your vampire through the in-game Janus Mirror to attack enemy players all over the world. Players will bite their way through thousands of victims on their iPhone using in-phone navigation as they locate their next prey, with the goal of becoming the world’s most dominant blood-sucking vampire.
In Vampire Tribunals you take the role of an awakened half human, half vampire species knows as damphyr, with the ability to sense demonic vampires that traffic among mankind. Use strategy and stealth to gain power by attacking demons around you or enter the mystical in-game portal known as the Janus Mirror to transport anywhere on the globe to challenge other real world iOS players while seeking out rewards and building your domain.
Players can quickly build a dark union of damphyr allies, establishing a powerful “House” that combines their collective powers to combat oncoming attacks. Use the Deck of Days to overcome your enemies by casting a variety of spells that can cloak you for stealth attacks, rebuff oncoming assailants, and summon protective demons.

What do you get when you mix old school Dungeons And Dragons with Cthulhu? According to the Escapist and the writer Venger Satanis you get Revelry In Torth. In the original Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Dungeon Master’s Guide, Gary Gygax talks about how fantasy and science fiction have deeply influenced his game. In the back, under Appendix N, he writes a list of “inspirational readings”. Not only does he mention famed horror author H.P. Lovecraft, but Gygax specifically lists him as a crucial influence.
The module, written by the awesomely named Venger Satanis, is described as being “sandbox, urban adventure, dark, Conan-esque sword & sorcery, just a hint of sci-fi, and very little gonzo.” In the city of Torth, players will have to navigate a tangled web of conspiracy and scheming as they investigate a murder. Expect to discover earth-shattering secrets that make you question reality along the way. There’s also a backstory involving a huge magical holocaust and possible machine slave revolt that sounds like the right mixture of interesting and insane.
The author hopes for Revelry to be the first in a trilogy, but all that will be decided whether or not he hits the $2,500 funding goal by October 14th. If this sounds like something your tabletop group would enjoy, pitching $7 in the kickstarter gets you both the PDF and a signed print copy of the module, which sounds more than fair.
Here’s a nice change of pace when it comes to choosing your game character. With the new game Depth from Digital confectioners, you can play a shark hunter or a Great White shark who does the hunting. According to The Escapist, Depth is an undersea multiplayer game that pits divers against sharks to determine who really is at the top of food chain (one guess to who it’ll end it up being). As a deep sea diver your job is to collect treasure while fending off the player-controlled sharks lurking in the shadows. Divers will have a multitude of weapons to choose from and upgrades to use to better defend themselves.
Sharks will have their own advantage by being natural predators of the sea. Depth’s Great white sharks are fast, agile, and have sharp teeth to tear their prey apart. The sharks will also have upgrades in the form of “evolutions” to go head-to-head with their human counterparts.
The game is set to release sometime in November on Steam.
Dead Rising 3 has been out for a month now and so far, gamers worldwide seem to be pleased with it. Have you played it? What are your thoughts? We’d like to know.
Here’s what Games.on.net had to say.
From the beginning, its clear that there are always more zombies than you’ll be able to kill on your own. Various objectives smatter the local map, giving you the opportunity to save someone, get a new schematic or indulge one of the various other curiosities that exist. On top of this, the game has a time limit (just like the previous titles), meaning that the city will be nuked if you don’t find a way out in time — adding an element of urgency to all of your decision making.The PC version of Dead Rising 3 is a fairly standard port from the Xbox One — which is mostly due to the fact that the Xbox One is, on almost every level, a PC. As a result, little has changed. Sure, you can fiddle with the graphics properties to some degree, but playing the game on its default settings looks, sounds and feels almost identical to the XB1. This is not a bad thing — Dead Rising 3 on the One is a fantastic title, and there has not been any love lost in the transition.
And here’s what PC Gamer’s thoughts were.
Dead Rising 3 is a riotous, imaginative, and brilliantly silly game. The dizzying wealth of weapons means the endless, bloody slaughter stays entertaining long after most other zombie games would have outstayed their welcome, and it has an endearing sense of humor, despite some dubious stereotyping that dances on the fringes of good taste.
The conclusion for season 2 of The Walking Dead has just been released. Titled “No Going Back” the game promises an exciting climax. Reviews from various gaming mags seem promising, but be ready for some dire situations and major character deaths. Although Season 3 was confirmed a couple of weeks ago, there’s some speculation that the lead character Clementine who’s now an adult, may not be seen for awhile.
“No Going Back” is available on PC, PS3, PS Vita, and Xbox 360. It’ll be available on the App Store for compatible iOS devices on Thursday, August 28.
Coming to PS4 in 2015, Bloodborne which is being published by Sony, bears an eerie similarity to Demon’s Souls.The game’s story takes place in an ancient, abandoned city called Yharnam which was known for housing a medical remedy. Over the years, many travelers made pilgrimages to Yharnam seeking the remedy to cure their afflictions; the protagonist is one of these travelers. Upon arriving in Yharnam, however, it is discovered that it is overrun with a terrifying curse which has rendered most of the city’s population violently deranged. The player must navigate the streets of Yharnam and defeat its insane inhabitants and horrifying monsters in order to survive.
It seems like the inclusion of firearms doesn’t take over the gameplay. In the video, we see the player tactically use it to lure enemies or stun foes, similar to limited supply weapons in Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls.
Due out next year from Next Games in cooperation with AMC, will be releasing No Man’s land. It’s timed to coincide with the launch of the Walking Dead’s season 5. “The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land,” will feature similar themes to the TV series according to Comic Book resources. Players will presumably attempt to survive in a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies, bringing out the best — or worst — in humanity.
“The last of Us” game seems to stay in the news I’ve noticed.Today, we bring you another article this one from Game Informer who has reported that the popular game has some new multiplayer DLC.
Sony has announced two new headgear bundles and a new gestures pack rolling out this week and next.The gestures are available individually or in a bundle for $2.49. The Grit and Gear headgear pack includes six items (including a bundle exclusive) and will be available after the PlayStation Store refreshes today for $6.99.
The Professional Sports Bundle includes seven items (including a bundle-specific piece). It will be out next week for $7.99. All of the cosmetic DLC is available on PS3 and PS4 with cross-buy.
Naughty Dog is also teasing more add-on content, including new maps and weapons for Factions mode. There are also more cosmetics on the way.
According to The Escapist, revisiting a cherished game like Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee can be risky. Some things need to change in order to update the gameplay and appeal to a modern audience, but straying too far from the original can damage the nostalgia factor and alienate hardcore fans. Developer Just Add Water does a commendable job walking that line with Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, delivering a faithful-yet-fresh vision of Abe’s introductory quest.
You can find plenty of HD remasters of classic games these days, but New ‘n’ Tasty isn’t one of them. It has been recreated completely with a new engine, assets, animations, cutscenes, and sounds – an enhanced replica to stand beside the original. You still guide Abe on a spirit quest to save his race, but the characters have more personality, the environments are more detailed, and the world feels bigger. The result is a version of Oddworld that looks and sounds like you always imagined it would beyond the technological constraints of 1997.
Not all the latest gaming news is coming from the 2014 SDCC. According to The Escapist, BioWare has a new horror trailer out.
clearly has something fun on the way. You’ve Been Chosen, the Nightmare teaser beckons, but chosen for what? Some fantastic, dream-like imagery, by the look of it; here’s hoping that nice fellow in the sharp suit isn’t going to do anything too damning to your precious Sanity.
A quick trip over to the website reveals a few cryptic notes. “The time is near. They are watching. Your power is rising. Cologne, Germany. You’ve Been Chosen.” Presumably the Cologne reference has to do with Gamescom, so we should be finding out more in August.
