Developers of the upcoming medi RPG Lords of the Fallen, have received a good bit of criticism about the sluggish-looking movement speed of the game’s playable characters. In response, City Interactive developer Tomasz Gop released the above video explaining that there are a variety of ways in which the game can be played. As the video explains, the game features a variety of weapon and armor choices that will change the way a character moves — including the speed. He also notes that since the game is approximately 50 hours long, the character and how it works will change over time. Personally, I’m a fan of armor and weaponry having an impact on character mobility, it gives it a bit more realism.
Cosplayer Karen Sakai is looking to undergo breast augmentation surgery, and she’d like your help doing it. Sakai has started a GoFundMe fundraiser asking for $4,300 in donations to pay for the surgery she wants to take her breasts from a C-size to a currently undisclosed larger size. According to Sakai’s video, she wants the surgery because she feels it will help her achieve more as a cosplayer — and a model. She also states that she wants to get the work done because she believes it will help with her self esteem. This will not be the cosplayer’s first time under the knife, but it is apparently the first time she’s asked for community help to fund it. And, as one might expect, she’s seen some backlash as a result of the fundraiser. According to Nerd Reactor, the cosplay community has weighed in on the fundraiser saying that cosplayers should not resort to crowdsourcing for cosplay and that they should fund their hobbies on their own. In fact, Sakai received enough criticism about her GoFundMe — with many thinking it’s selfish — that she put out a followup video on the project page.

Papers, Please actually redefined the 8-bit genre for me. It sets a tone that makes you think about what you’re doing and gives meaning to your gameplay without flashy graphics or dramatic dialogue. And developer Lucas Pope plans on doing that again with his new game Return of Obra Dinn. The game, set in 1808, plops you on board a ship called the Obra Dinn, which has been missing for six years, then suddenly appeared in the port again. You can head over to the official website to test out a game demo, but be warned there is currently not much content. And of course, the game is not finished. We included a playthrough video from Polygon so that you can get a feel for the game, or you can just download it yourself.

With Warlords of Draenor on the horizon, it’s only natural that Blizzard would want to show off some of the really cool creatures that are going to be terrorizing players. A new post on Battle.net highlights four beings found in the “land of contradictions,” Gargrond — a place of “barren rocky plains and dense overgrown jungles”. You can get a peek at the creatures — as well as some information about them — below. The Botani The Infested Genesaur Goren
YouTubers CineFix are back with another 8-Bit Cinema episode. This time they take on crazy people eating, skin wearing serial killers with Silence of the Lambs. Personally, I find this version somehow more disturbing than the movie. I’m not sure why… Perhaps it’s that the cute 8-bit look doesn’t jive with the material. Or perhaps it’s the brevity of trhe 8-Bit Cinema storytelling format. Either way, it’s still horrifying.
Drones are used for a lot of things these days, spying on your neighbors, getting areal views of movies being filmed, inside views of fireworks displays, potentially video game delivery. But racing may be the best use of these little guys yet. Speeder bikes on Endor anyone? Thanks to Olivier YORGANDJIAN for the video. Just a note. The crashes may make you a little dizzy.

Microsoft has dropped a new trailer for Halo: Nightfall, the live action feature being produced by Ridley Scott. Portions of the trailer are from a clip seen at SDCC in July, but there’s some new bits for Halo fans to oggle at. The series, which focuses on a new character named Agent Locke, will kick off in November. In addition, Locke will be available as a playable character in Halo 5: Guardians although Master Chief will remain the game’s focus.
In celebration of everyone’s favorite haunted holiday, Blizzard introduced three new skins for Heroes of the Storm. They include a vampire-esque Kerrigan, a skull-faced Abathur, and the Legendary Skin, an infected Tychus. These skins really do look great and are available now. If for some reason you’re not in the alpha testing of the game, Blizzard says in the blog post that “they will be in the shop for the foreseeable future.”

Call it modding or call it cheating. It’s still giving one player a major advantage over another player. And this latest “mod” to hit Destiny really makes it so you cannot lose. Call me old fashioned, but I like to play games where I’m not a god and there is a chance of me losing a fight. And when I play a game with thousands of people, it becomes more important that I’m more evenly matched with the other players. On Kotaku, the creator of this mod claims that it is only available on physically modified previous-gen consoles like the Xbox 360, as if somehow that makes it better. Hopefully, Bungie does something about this quickly. And so that you can see how game-breaking this mod is, I’ve included the video above.
