Posted by on Jul 21, 2017

Please enjoy this interview with Greg Kasavin, recorded on location at Supergiant’s San Francisco headquarters, and the following PlayStation (me) vs. Supergiant (Greg) battle royale in Pyre’s robust local multiplayer mode. I won’t spoil who wins, but I will make the excuse that he spent the last few years making the darn game, c’mon.

Pyre: Out Tuesday, Enhanced for PS4 Pro, 50+ Trophies, New Launch Trailer

Posted by on Jul 20, 2017

If you enjoyed Transistor or Bastion, then I hope you’ll have a chance to play Pyre when it debuts next week on PS4. Our third game is a party-based RPG featuring our biggest campaign ever, filled with unique characters I cannot wait for you to meet. You can get a taste of what’s in store in our launch trailer above.

My favorite part of this trailer is, it has more characters in its 90 second running time than you meet over the entire course of our first two games. And, it’s really only scratching the surface — you’ll see what I mean once you play the full game! For example, the trailer doesn’t reveal one of the most unique aspects of Pyre’s campaign, which is that there’s no Game Over — the story moves forward no matter whether you prevail or you fail in any of the game’s high-stakes ritual competitions, where the freedom of your fellow exiles hangs in the balance.

If you’ve read along carefully, you might have noticed the mention of Portal once or twice, but more on that later.

Destiny 2 Beta Impressions: the Story, the Strike and the Crucible

Posted by on Jul 20, 2017

The next chapter of Bungie’s sweeping science-fiction epic launches September 6 on PS4. To keep all the clamoring Guardians at bay, Bungie released a beta earlier this week starting with early access on July 18.

With the Last City in peril and plenty of Crucible matches to join, our team diligently played video games at the office to provide our thoughts on the Destiny 2 Beta, and how Dominus Ghaul seems like a truly unpleasant fellow.
