Tick Tock... E3 2016 is coming!

Before I get to the first bit of action, I just want to say that I have replaced Blu's... delicious fruit snacks with a huge box and have purchased my own! :p (NOM NOM NOM!) We have our icons ready to roll too.

Did you see the Intergalactic Super Gamer shirts? Those are by gamers (obviously) for gamers and... they are exclusive to the SDGTSHOP! So get a tee & keep it G (I think something cool is going to be popping off with ISG... so we shall see)! The shirt and product colors can be changed to tickle your fancy (and of course the colors you see here represent SDGT!).

E3 is literally this month! I just want to see a bunch of... awesome, I have no expectations (though it would've been super fantastic to see Nintendo NX but...). Speaking of Nintendo, they will be showing other things in addition to The Legend of Zelda.

Roll Throughout Art History in Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder

ACE Team, ATLUS (the game publisher), and Atlas (the Greek god) present the sequel to the hit strategic, rock-smashing, tower defense game!
IRVINE, Calif - June 2, 2016 - It's so gneiss to see you again! The genre-bending Rock of Ages - the part Tower Defense, part Racing, part Art History lesson, and all smashing game from ACE Team - returns with new gameplay, co-op and competitive modes, and more in Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder, coming this fall to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One as a digital title. In the game, players will explore the uniquely artistic worlds, and take turns in defensive and offensive roles in an attempt to smash open the enemy's castle and crush their dreams of ruling the world (by crushing their corporeal form). For the latest information on the game, you can roll on over to find the latest carvings on the official webstone at www.rockofages2.com
In Bigger and Boulder, Atlas, the Greek God of holding up really heavy things, needs some help recovering the celestial sphere that he might have misplaced. And he definitely needs your help, because all the rulers throughout historical eras are getting in his way; there's no time to gather moss - start smashing down gates! The conquerors in the game are each representative of their different periods of Art History, from Early Renaissance to Late Gothic, and are presented in the series' quirky, Pythonesque, cut-out animation style.
One of the major changes to the gameplay in Rock of Ages II is the emphasis on co-op and competitive play, where up to four players can strategically plan their victory by way of merciless destruction via boulder! There's also been a complete revamp of how resources are accrued in the game, so players will not just have to defend their own castles, but resource nodes as well!
Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder features include:
  • Up to 4-person Multiplayer - A little friendly competition never hurt anyone, so that's why ACE Team decided to up the gate-smashing stakes by beefing up the multiplayer features of the game. Play with up to four players online in a 2v2 match to the crushing death with the ability to customize banners and colors for your "units." Plus, the tracks now intersect, so you can knock the enemy rocks to get an advantage!
  • Utter Chaos - Expanding on the first game with a more diverse selection of units and a larger focus on rock-smashing strategy inBigger and Boulder, chaos reigns supreme! Just don't take each turn for granite!
  • Improved Physics and Destructible Environments - Developed in Unreal Engine 4, Rock of Ages II has upgraded physics and even more things to be cracked, crushed, flattened, and slammed. It's the most fun you can have rolling rocks down a big hill!
  • ACE Team's Trademark Quirkiness - With humor is turned up to 11, players will literally rock and roll through the ages. Famous historical figures beware!
Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder will roll into digital stores this fall for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One! The best part? Go hands-on with Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder in the ATLUS booth at E3! The game is not yet rated by the ESRB, with pricing details to come later. but check out the latest info carved into the Bigger and Boulder official webstone www.rockofages2.com or the ACE Team Steam Community www.steamcommunity.com/groups/aceteam


There are Cyborgs in the Pyramid – Go Get ‘Em in the New Warface Special Operation, Anubis

Blow up a sub, neutralize a missile base, and destroy a secret cyborg factory in the latest Special Operation to launch on Crytek’s free online shooter

Crytek is taking Warface gamers to fictional east Africa.

Frankfurt am Main (Germany) June 2, 2016 – A futuristic threat is buried within an ancient pyramid in Anubis, the expansive new Special Operation coming to Crytek’s free-to-play online shooter, Warface, today.
Anubis – named after the god of death himself – is an epic three stage co-op mission set in Eastern Africa, where players must battle hard, smart, and as a team. Gamers must work through a network of bases, culminating in an assault on a pyramid, to disrupt Blackwood’s villainous operations.
The action comes thick and fast from the moment the team is inserted into the landing zone, where enemies are at the gate of a missile facility. After infiltrating the complex and disabling the control room, defended by deadly automatic turrets, players must repel assaults from all sides as they battle through a canyon to reach a heavily fortified dry dock. Then it’s time to blow up a Blackwood submarine. Once this objective is completed, players take the fight to the heart of Anubis’ pyramid which houses a clandestine cyborg factory. Gamers must disable the facility and then survive waves of relentless attacks as a sandstorm engulfs the battlefield before extraction.
The new Special Operation’s three diverse stages require players to combine the strengths of the game’s four different classes to take on and eliminate a wide range of enemies. Gamers must adapt their tactics for each stage, from clearing out buildings at close-quarters to holding a defensive line in the face of marauding cyborgs, if they are to complete this action-packed new mission.
Anubis is the latest co-op Special Operation to launch for Warface. New maps, missions, weapons, items, weapon skins, and challenges are regularly added to the game as Warface evolves to serve its ever-growing community.
