King Arts Games & Steam are Campaigning To Turn “Battle Worlds: Kronos” Their Upcoming Turn-Based Strategy Title Battle Worlds: Kronos To The prolific Digital Platform.

image001

KING Art games, the developers behind the critically acclaimed Book of Unwritten  Tales, today announced the commencement of a Steam Greenlight campaign in an effort to bring their upcoming turn-based strategy title Battle Worlds: Kronos to the prolific digital distribution platform. Already, support from the gaming community has been overwhelming and expectations for the campaign are high.

The Battle Worlds: Kronos Kickstarter campaign was fully backed within seven days and is soon to reach its first stretch goal of $170,000 with 22 days still to go, having proven immensely popular with both core strategy fans and the wider gaming populace. Both the community and the developers at KING Art themselves have taken such pride in the upcoming strategy game that the decision to bring the game to Steam was an easy one to make.

“We’re blown away by the support we’ve already received on the Greenlight campaign; it’s great to know we have so many committed people behind us on this,” Said Jan Theysen, Creative Director, KING Art games. “We’re expecting to reach our first Kickstarter stretch-goal very soon, so that with the help of our loyal backers and community, we can bring an even more amazing experience to Steam.”

Valve’s DOTA 2 Beta Holding Its Own On Steam

In the latest Steam Stats PC Gamer discovered that Valve’s DOTA 2 is being played more then Counter-Strike Source and the more popular Skyrim, Tha’t’s surprising news considering Skyrim is regarded as one of the greatest games ever made. While DOTA 2 is still in its Beta stages it’s the second most played game on Steam, ahead of the more popular Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

In September Valve had decided to have IceFrog speed up the work for DOTA 2 after the success of the International Tournament, IceFrog posted: ” Our original plan was to spend the next year or so in beta, adding new features and slowly growing the number of heroes until we reached a level of parity with Dota 1, at which point we’d release Dota 2 to the world. But the feedback we’re seeing everywhere is that people just want to play it, even though there’s still a ton of heroes yet to be implemented. We’ve also seen that the folks who are already in the beta are chomping at the bit to show everyone else some of the fun games they’ve had. So we decided our original plan was dumb.”  Since release of that news the decision to keep the  game in Beta seems to be paying off quite well.

A graph down below was built using Steam Graphs shows the stats over the last few days. At it’s peak time US Counter-Strike Source, Counter-Strike 1.6, have the upper hand, But in those downtime hours Dota 2 overtakes both which hints to the fast strong growing  community.

Borderlands 2 packs Steamworks on PC

Gearbox and 2K have been quick to eliminate any speculation about online support and protections for Borderlands 2, today they’ve announced that Steamworks will handle achievements, DLC, updates and matchmaking services with Steam Cloud picking up the tab for game progress data as well.

This acts as a shift from the in-house system used in the original title on the PC, with Steamworks they’re able to harness an entire user base with relative ease especially when handling 4 player match-ups. The only frustration might come from using online activation for the game, generally Steam requires online decryption of the files before allowing someone to play the game offline which means there will be a one-time validation requirement attached.

Borderlands 2 is set to arrive this September, hopefully we’ll have some deeper looks at the game between now and the release.

The Serious Sam Collection and a retrospective by Rich Knuckles

You thought you knew hardcore when you played MW for the first time, or when you managed your way into BF3. Fact is, you never knew hardcore at all because everyone seem to have forgotten about Sam… Serious Sam. The hardcore bastard with a love for killing everything that Mental can throw at him came back at the end of 2011 with a new game and tons of action for PC gamers. With BFE and the indie series already out for sale on various digital channels there was only one more thing Croteam and Devolver Digital could do, The Serious Sam Collection is a result of that.

Check out the video to get a full taste for how epic this really is. After that, head over to Steam and get in on the goodness because it’s that damn amazing.

Day 13: The Steam Holiday Sale continues with a GRID of Hitman and Magika

Seriously today is one of the fun days of the sale, Hitman is sweet, GRID is a great racing title that Codemasters never followed up on and Magicka is just hillarious fun.

I’m not wasting time, GRID is great for racing fans, the mix of pro racing and pro-street racing cars in the game isn’t overkill but it satisfies the need for grip and drift racing. You can cut loose as you wish and still have a good time. Online might be a little dead though. Hitman is awesome, you can play it like you want and have fun with it in the process. No blood in your kills? No problem just lure them off a pier instead.

Dead Island is a great title to have as well, most of the bugs have been worked out and it’s a solid Zombie experience this year as it has little to compete with fortunately in that genre. LA Noire is on the scene, it’s a mixed bag but it’s a solid single playthrough experience. If you want replay value, you might have to look elsewhere.

Only one title to consider avoiding, Daggerdale. The reviews aren’t that pretty so buyer beware.

Objective time!

  • Steam – Turn on Steam Guard
  • Trine – Winter Secrets – Find the Academic, Bony and Crystalline holiday secret gifts.
  • Hoard – Ruin Christmas – Incinerate 10 thieves who are dressed up like Santa’s elves!
  • Bit.Trip Beat – Jingle.Bells – Make a bell chime in Descent
  • Counter-Strike: Source – Valve Gift Grab 2011 – CS:S – Collect three gifts dropped by opponents.
  • Magicka – Ice Age – It’s what killed the dinosaurs. Smash 100 frozen creatures to bits

We’re almost out of time, tomorrow we’ll have Day 14 as we join you in the new year!
