Lineage 2: Revolution introduces new updates and kicks off regular season for it's enormous sieges


Seoul, Korea (January 24, 2018) – Netmarble Games Corp., the fastest-growing mobile game company worldwide, is updating their mobile MMORPG Lineage 2: Revolution and kicking off the first regular season of the game’s massive PvP modes, Open Siege and Fortress Siege, today.

Having introduced the pre-season of the Fortress Siege and Open Siege in December last year, Lineage 2: Revolution offers the largest scale multiplayer gameplay ever available on mobile devices.

The 50 vs. 50 Fortress Siege, held every Friday from 19:30 to 20:00 GMT, offers players to compete in a massive PvP battle between two clans, where the first clan to imprint onto their opponents’ Holy Artifact is crowned the winner. With the opening of the regular season, 4 Gludio Regions and 4 Dion Regions have been newly added, allowing players to conquer the fortresses in these new regions.


The 30 vs. 30 Open Siege, held every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 19:30 to 20:00 GMT, invites players above level 11 to participate in the smaller-scale 30 vs. 30 battle, giving entry-level players a taste of the grander Fortress Siege. From the regular season, players can acquire a new “Steam Beetle” pet by participating in the Open Siege mode.

The latest game update also expands the max level for players to 180, along with the expansion of Main Quests, Daily Quests, and Scroll Quests, providing more content for active and higher leveled players. New region, Giran Dominion, has been added, along with field expansion in Deathly Fog Shores, Devil’s isle, Haunted Necropolis, Ivory Tower Catacombs 1, 2, and 3. Moreover, Elite Dungeon has additionally opened Ivory Tower Catacombs 1, 2, 3, allowing players to gain even more EXP and Adenas.

Starting today and running until February 7, Lineage 2: Revolution will also host two new in-game events offering players the opportunity to obtain increased rewards. The New Region Dice Event will allow players to earn dice points after completing dungeons and quests, which are used to roll for special rewards such as Maphr’s Protection and Enhancement Scroll, which are essential for item enhancements.

During the same period, Log-in/Attendance Event will be held, where players who log-in to the game daily will receive special items. Those who log in consecutively until the seventh day will receive an R-Grade Varnish Selection Box, used for leveling up equipment.

“We are very excited to bring the regular season of Fortress Siege and Open Siege to Lineage 2 Revolution” said Netmarble’s Chief Glober Officer, Seungwon Lee. “It’s been a month since we opened the pre-season and we received some great feedbacks from our players. We see increasingly more players participating in the two sieges and we hope our players continue to enjoy the massive-scale battles.”

Lineage 2: Revolution is available worldwide on the App Store® and Google Play™.

Super Dungeon Bros Free-To-Play on Steam Until January 25th


Watford, U.K — January 18, 2018 — Wired Productions, a leading games publisher, is delighted to announce that, the rock-n-roll inspired co-op dungeon brawler, Super Dungeon Bros is free-to-play January 18th-25th via Steam on Windows PC and Mac.
Prospective players can reacquaint themselves with the bros in the free week promo

https://youtu.be/Gf_WI76PIUM

The free week brings with it a 75% discount on both the base game and existing DLC, whilst also coinciding with the release of brand new content for the rogue-like action brawler. The Idols DLC which launches today brings with it not only cosmetic enhancements for your Bros and Broettes but also a whole new way to play with the Idols weapon class:

Add to your arsenal with new devastating ranged weapons that are worth worshipping. Control the enemy crowd by cursing, chilling, summoning and enveloping your enemies. In addition to the power of the Idols, unlock 8 more bro-tastic helmets and an all new Ultimate.

On top of the latest DLC and the game's new Horde mode (which sees the Bros defend their shack against endless waves of the most horrible monsters, free across all formats,) developer React Games has made a number of improvements to gameplay and matchmaking since the games launch.

In the multiplayer-centric Super Dungeon Bros, a band of heavy metal heroes are summoned to embark on a quest from the Gods of Rock. Their mission: to navigate the fantasy realm of Rökheim and seek out epic loot, vanquish hordes of evil undead and uncover the legends of long lost fabled rock stars! Featuring captivating, laugh out loud action and adventure, players can rock out on or offline with four bros as they fling their friends onto far off ledges and distant trap triggers, or unleash their best tag team tactics with the ultimate bro-op offensive. Legendary tools of destruction can be individually levelled up to carry progress across sessions, and players can unleash weapon-specific co-op attacks that grow in power as others join in, such as the Bronado (stack up to create a whirling totem pole of destruction).

Three unique and challenging worlds await the brave ones as they explore the rock-themed realm of Rökheim and dive deep into the worlds of Cryptheim (an underground dungeon complex), Chillheim (a brewery built upon a natural brew geyser) and Bogheim (a sprawling jungle filled with poisonous plants and animals). Players will never rock the same dungeon twice thanks to the random room generation AI, and near-endless dungeon combinations! To keep things fresh between campaign sessions, players are also able to assemble and compete against other teams in the daily and weekly challenges to see who can claim the top spot on the global leaderboards!

Developed by Utah-based React Games, Super Dungeon Bros is published by Wired Productions and physical retail distribution is handled by THQ Nordic. This title has been rated "E10+ for Everyone 10 and up" by the ESRB, PEGI 7 and USK 6.

Active Gaming Media Inc.

Yume Nikki is a twisted game that was first released in 2007.

The premise: To walk through a dream world.

There are no objectives or story other than to walk.

Examining NPCs nets you ‘effects’. Effects change the protagonist’s appearance and movement options.

The majority of this masterpiece is shrouded in mystery. Those who venture forth will not find lucid answers to their journey. The spectacle of this game’s bizarre environments and rationale-defying effects has been met with indecisive, yet resounding speculation from players the world over about the lore that drives it.

Even today, more than 10 years after its original release, Yume Nikki still captures players and inspires developers, leading each one into a mysterious dark dream world.

PREVIEW: Nantucket – a seafaring strategy game based on Moby Dick


Preview By Jon Donnis
Nantucket reminds me a lot of the type of games I used to play in the mid 90s. RPG games that you actually had to concentrate to play. For a long time these types of game simply disappeared and were replaced by all action short play time console games. But now with Nantucket we have a game that goes back to the heart of what gaming was always about. Telling a story, letting you get involved, building characters, learning, improving and having a feeling of satisfaction when you accomplish an in game task.

You play the game by looking down at a map, you start with your little boat, and you set sail. You will explore the seas, and as you do you will encounter "events", such as a whale you need to kill, and in doing so you collect it as food, its blubber which you can sell for money. You will stop off at ports where you will change crew, improve your ship, buy and sell. As you sail around the world, you will find new quests, and have to make decisions that will impact you as the game progresses.

Although for some this game might seem slow at times, this game isn't about non stop button pounding, or action scenes, it is more about enjoying the story line, while trying to grow your character, your ship, and your crew. Fighting whales, fighting pirates, and trying to keep your crew happy, but not allowing them to develop traits that will harm you along the way.

Do your research before you buy this game, watch the trailer (below), seek out reviews, visit the creators website. This game wont be for everyone, and might I say, it is probably directed at the older gamer, but even if you are younger, do your research and if this sounds like a game you would enjoy, give it a try.

A fun old school game. 7/10

Nantucket releases on January 18th 2018 on Steam and other leading PC storefronts.
