Portal Knights Review – Procedurally Focused (PS4)

Has the procedurally-generated game been done to death by this point? Keen Games doesn’t think so, and they hope that their latest release of Portal Knights shows that there are still plenty of ideas to apply to an area of gaming that is dominated by the likes of Minecraft. Let’s see if their RPG-centric ideas agree with the zaniness that can occur when your world is procedurally created. Specialized Build Keen Games used their own in-house game engine for Portal Knights, which is fairly rare to see from a more independent developer. The result is a game that runs at a fairly consistent and high frame rate, dipping only in action-heavy moments in split-screen (more on that in a bit). Water blocks also have the occasional odd block-ish look to them, which thankfully doesn’t last for very long. Overall, the graphical fidelity of Portal Knights falls somewhere between the Unity and Unreal engines, featuring all the different biomes you’d expect, from lush forests to harsh deserts, winter wonderlands, and the amusingly-named Brackenburg. These biomes are presented in a way unique to Portal Knights. The game has a story about the splitting of the world into multiple islands, separated by READ…

[embedded content] A tribute to games like WipEout and F-Zero, anti-gravity racing simulation Redout is releasing on August 29 in North America and August 31 in Europe for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, publisher 505 Games announced today.

All told, the package will contain 30 unique tracks and six different environments, all staged on a dystopic Earth. [embedded content] Here’s the description for Redout: Lightspeed Edition: Redout is a tribute to the classic racing monsters. It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in that vertigo that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre. The floating system and driving models are based on physics: Every slope, hard-brake, acceleration, and each turn and twist of the track will apply a unique force to the ship. A sharp low-polygon style blends meshes and terrains with the latest state-of-the-art shading and lighting effects provided by the Unreal Engine 4, creating beautiful and instantly recognizable aesthetics. The melancholic, dystopian atmosphere of a semi-abandoned Earth is the background for the most READ…

Here’s What’s Coming in the Next Assetto Corsa Update

With the last update for Assetto Corsa dropping in February earlier this year, 505 Games has detailed what fans can expect from the racing game’s next console update. Patch v1.14 will add five new cars, and even a homemade Highlands track which 505 Games thinks is the “perfect” racing track. Aside from that, a host of new tweaks and fixes will make their way as well. CONSOLE UPDATE V 1.14 NOTES Featuring all-new FREE bonus content, including 5 cars, as well as our home made Highlands track! The perfect track doesn’t exist. That’s why we created one. AUDI QUATTRO S1 E2 Introduced back in 1984, the Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2 revolutionized rallying. Just like the other manufacturers, Audi used the lenient homologation requirements to create a new rally car. All the car maker needed for homologation was a production run of a mere 200 cars. Blomqvist’s spectacular, sideways driving style suited the Sport quattro perfectly. By flicking the tail out, the Swede overcame the natural understeer of the nose-heavy Audi. He won five of the twelve rounds and was crowned the 1984 World Champion. Mikkola and Roehrl also won a round, which was enough to clinch the constructor’s trophy. MAZDA MX5…
