Exciting new stuff for Thimbleweed Park, Man O’ War: Corsair, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard, and more!
It’s a well known fact that after the summer shopping spree is over and what is described by psychologists as “Backlog Guilt” sets in, you are twice as eager to get gaming. But whether you’re trying your loot for the first time or you’re in the middle of your playthrough, extra content and fixes are always welcome. Here are some titles that got leveled up in the past couple of weeks, in case you missed them:
Ron Gilbert’s darkly humorous point & click got some cool fixes but the most important additions are the all-new idle conversations between your playable characters and an in-game Hint Line. Just dial 4468 (HINT) from any in-game phone to get those sweet puzzle hints that would put your college fund at risk, back in the day.
Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles
A ton of changes and fixes have been implemented in the game, the most important one being a new campaign which lets you play as Nurgle’s Chosen and spread the plague all across the Old World. How can this not be fun?
Vikings: Wolves of Midgard
Plenty of fan-requested features and improvements recently hit this fierce action-RPG. Chief amongst them the couch co-op multiplayer option plus several changes made to the NG+ mode and the Trials of the Gods. Plus the game is now 50% off until next Monday.
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil
The latest update to the dinosaur-blasting shooter brings Dedicated Server support, as well as DirectX improvements and a few new multiplayer game modes, the InstaRok and New Raptor-Fest.
Through the Woods
This atmospheric horror adventure just became even more atmospheric, thanks to the completely re-recorded voiceovers for the main character, now provided by actress Malin Pettersen.
Quite a few changes and additions: A new “surprise round” feature to allow player positioning before the enemy turn when ambushed, full Danish localisation, three new campsite scenes in the Denmark campaign, new animations for Taunt and Dust abilities, a new generic support ability animation for when you’re wielding a spear, and an animation for consumable utility items (ie. potions).
Death Road to Canada
Fixes and seasonal events galore! Canada Day and July 4th bring recruitable beavers, Uncle Sam, and Muscle Eagle, all of which have special lines and things to say upon death.
So what are you waiting for? Fire them up and check out all that cool stuff!
