The Bard’s Tale IV, launching Monday June 2nd at 6 AM PST/13:00 UTC. Return to Skara Brae for a true dungeon-crawling sequel to the original The Bard’s Tale trilogy that helped define the cRPG genre!
On the 30th anniversary of the original Bard's Tale, what better time than now to go on an adventure worthy of song? The Bard’s Tale IV will feature challenging maze-like dungeons with devious puzzles and riddles to explore in the first-person dungeon crawler style of the original trilogy. inXile has the full rights to use everything from the original trilogy, so the game will be rich with callbacks and old favorites such as teleporter zones and magic mouths.

The Steampunk World's Fair has done me in. Either I'm getting old, or I'm finally doing this show correctly.

Last we saw ‘Mad’ Max Rockantansky he was still wandering alone in the desert ruins of our world, and when we finally catch up with him again, that’s where we find him. It isn't before long that he’s captured by a cult called The War Boys, whose leader, Immortan Joe, realizes that his best driver Imperator Furiousa is escaping with all of his ‘treasures’; a set of mutation free and beautiful women in a war rig (a supercharged and heavily armored tanker). Max is literally dragged into the efforts to recapture them by a War Boy called Nux, a true believer and great driver himself, who is sick and low on blood. With Max strapped to the front of his car acting as his blood bag, the chase begins.
It’s been 30 years since George Miller last made a Mad Max movie. That movie remains the weakest link in the franchise, and is part of why it’s taken so long for there to be another, but other reasons include terrorist attacks and freak weather. If Miller hadn't been so driven to make this movie then it definitely wouldn't have been made. In fact he’s spent over 15 years trying to make Fury Road, and since it was originally intended to start shooting way back in 2001, it’s a project I've been looking forward to (for a very long time!)

It seems like only yesterday we introduced LEGO Dimensions! It’s essentially the LEGO Company and Warner Brothers Interactive’s take on the whole Skylanders / Disney Infinity game and toy concept, coming to all the major consoles late this Summer. One of the things that seems to set Lego Dimensions apart is that instead of using what amounts to little plastic statues, it uses actual Lego minifigures and mini builds that you can take off their stands and take apart and rebuild any way you want. Even though that won’t affect how the characters and vehicles and items show up in game, in my eyes that adds a bit more value to the shelf loads of ‘stuff’ this game is going to be cluttering up your toy and video game stores with in the near future.
