AT COMIC: The Darkness of Souls.

Hm, ya know, the movie Ratchet and Clank isn't doing to good at the moment. Our editor Larry Frum retruns to tell us that, unlike the movie, Ratchet and Clank the game offers a slightly different experience.

Let's have a looksy: 

There is a wide variety of worlds, from cityscapes with rails to grind to planets featuring platforms and tiny island where hidden underground caverns are ready for exploration. Players of the 2002 version will recognize many story elements, but they are told through the eyes of a disgraced Captain Qwark, jailed for his misdeeds yet to be discovered. The plot is similar to the original version with many of the gameplay elements updated or revised.

So, as a gamer, would you be interested in VR? Would you even consider it? Or maybe you think that, at this point, the tech is just a gimmick and needs some time to evolve? Keri got a chance experience VR at PAX East, so here's her own take on it: 

I was in a panic. My whole body tensed as I was vastly afraid of going over the edge. I frantically tugged on the reins to keep my horse in line, and I felt my stomach lurch when he would pick up a burst of speed as though I was on a roller coaster. No, I wasn’t moving at all, but the VR made me feel like I was. I really believed I would fall if we went over the edge. The fear was incredibly real.

When the demo ended, I was trembling. The developer asked if I was okay, and I said that was far more intense than I expected. Then I mentioned it was my first VR experience, and his eyes went rather wide. He ushered me over to a different chair, told me to drink water and offered some ginger candy to calm the nerves...

Space Hulk: Deathwing, the first-person shooter based upon the Warhammer 40,000 universe, has been in development for quite some time, and we haven't seen or learned much about it other than the fact that it:

  1. Takes place on a Space Hulk (duh);
  2. Involves killing lots and lots of Genestealers; and
  3. It's a shooty-shooter.

Now we can finally see some of the shooty-shooter in action, as well as how the Dark Angel Terminators band together to try to survive this onslaught.

Space Hulk: Deathwing will blast into our sector later this year.

Indie developer Coronado Games has released a new strategy game into the wilds of Steam Early Access, Starship Corporation, where your mission is to build your own starships, test your designs with a crew, and then trade your creations on the mass market. Players will create layouts for both spaceships and planetary installations, where the only limit is imagination with the tools given. For Early Access, 50 Room types are currently available across 6 categories. Once your design is set, you must test it with a string of missions to see how a working crew would react to emergencies and combat scenarios. The ship's performance will be rated, which determines its price on the market or how it will perform in the player's own fleet. No one said you had to sell it.

”We are excited to reveal our unique game to players all over the world and we are very curious to see what kind of imaginative ship designs and gameplay strategies will unfold from the gaming community," lead developer David Murent said. "We are eagerly looking forward to player feedback to further enhance the development process.”

It would be neet if they also added in a feature where players could trade ships with one another for their fleets. I'm going to keep my eye on this one.

DICE is holding a presentation to show the world a new Battlefield game on May 6th, according to a press invitation that landed in several inboxes this morning.

"Join the DICE team on May 6 at 1pm PT and witness live the world premiere of the new Battlefield™ game," the invitation reads. "Get insight into the minds of the developers as you hear from the Creative Director Lars Gustavsson and Lead Producer Aleksander Grondal on the past, present and the future of Battlefield. You will be able to join in the conversation as we open the floor to questions."

According to Videogamer.com, the joining part is a special invitation to the select few that will take place in London. Afterward, there will be a livestream on Twitch of the big unveiling event, and then those who are attending can hang out afterward for cocktails and talk about the new Battlefield with the DICE folks mentioned above.

Will this be Battlefield 5? Another Bad Company game? Another entry in the Battlefield 1942 series? Which would you prefer?

Okay, first of all, I have to apologize for the late-ish Morning Post, but two crucial things are going on. First of all, we don't have to go into the office today because it's Serbian Orthodox Easter. Yaay... (that was me being ecstatic about a religious holiday I'm not exactly ecstatic about, but ya know time away from the office is still time away from the office, even though it's going to be a busy weekend - loads to play and loads to write about).

The second crucial thing going on is that I have switched appartments today. Moved in with my girlfriend, which I'm especially excited about! So yeah, moving days are always synonymous with partial insanity - so many fucking things to carry. Apart from the physical exhaustion there's one thing that continually fascinates me. Basically, the amount of crap I managed to accumulate in just a couple of years. However, no matter how much stuff you bring, it's very important not to forget the essentials:

Oh the new PC has settled in nicely, as well:
