Dungeons & Dragons helped me appreciate narrative game design •

It’s a Friday evening in October 2016, and there’s more paper on my desk than I have space for. There are slips of paper with notes. Flash cards with notes for the notes. Hand-drawn maps. A text file on a tablet with colour codes to find the corresponding notes a little quicker. Most importantly, there is a 440-page hardcover rulebook resting on my legs, with more colour-coded bookmarks sticking out of it.

Yup, that’s me. You’re probably wondering how I ended up in this situation. The easy answer to this question, as for most of the things that bring me equal amounts of joy and pain, is a game. In this particular case, it’s Dungeons & Dragons.

As someone who’s always enjoyed…

Resolution and frame-rate specifications revealed for The Banner Saga 3’s “enhanced” version.

The Banner Saga 3, much like its predecessors, is a game that sports a beautiful animated visual style, but it, too, is beholden to being able to perform impressively on a technical level, even if not as much as games with a more photorealistic look might be. Apparently, there’s some good stuff to look forward to in that regard.

We recently interviewed John Watson, co-founder of Stoic, the developers of The Banner Saga, and asked him about the resolution and frame rate…

Konami kills the P.T. for PC horror remake, but at least the creator got an internship

Horror curio P.T. (short for Playable Teaser) was notable for a couple of reasons. It was one of Hideo Kojima’s last projects before leaving Konami, and – once he left – was expunged from the PlayStation Store, so it couldn’t even be redownloaded by those that had owned it. Now, a project to rebuild the nightmarish nugget for PC has been quashed by Konami. 

17-year-old developer Qimsar decided to remake the game for PC, and released a free downloadable build via the site GameJolt. Now Konami has stepped in to put a stop to the project, but has offered Qimsar a small consolation prize. 

“I got a phone call that I was expecting at about 5am from someone who worked at Konami. He…

Modern Air Combat will add 14 historic aircraft to DCS World this fall

You don’t see flight simulators coming out the way they used to anymore. Of course, they haven’t completely disappeared – but they tend more toward platforms like Eagle Dynamics DCS World, which is ‘free to play’ and has more than $1,500 worth of DLC planes and campaigns to buy. Now, Eagle Dynamics has announced a new module for DCS world coming this fall, Modern Air Combat. And boy oh boy, it sure is pretty.

The in-game trailer shows off the roster of 14 aircraft that the Modern Air Combat package will bring with it, including some of most notable fighter jets from the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Of particular note is the F-86F Sabre, the…
