Game developer Orange Popcorn has announced their new Metroidvania action title, Hunter X: code name T (the lower case is part of the official spelling), will launch on Steam in just a few days.
In “My Demon”, there is a demon named Jeong Gu-Won who hides his age well. By looking at him, you would not know that he was about 200 years old. That’s how long he has been making deals with humans. He grants their wishes and they can live the life they please for 10 years. When the time is up, they have to pay up, per the contract.

If you thought Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake was a one-time deal….well, so did we, so we’re surprised (but not disappointed) to learn today Max has renewed the show for a second season. All episodes of Season 1 debuted last September on the streaming service.
Free league are fast becoming a household name in the RPG community. Have they got another hit? Find out in this Walking Dead Universe RPG review. The Swedish publisher is famous for releasing high quality, easy to learn, quick to table, and most importantly; fun RPG games. Also renown for acquiring big budget IPs, they have done it again with the acquisition of AMC’s The Walking Dead TV series.
My passion for The Guyver is very close to that of O’Brien (though it did not drive me to write a book), in that I discovered the first film on the video rental store shelf in the early 90’s and was mesmerized by its unique blend of horror, comedy and choreographed violence. I had never seen anything like it and found myself renting it multiple times to share with friends.
Shim Jung-woo is a Confucian scholar who scored the highest on the civil service exams. The king would been pleased if he could put this young man’s intellect and skills to good use. But the leader of a corrupt political party, his father, arranged for him to be married to the princess. On the wedding day, the princess drops dead right after he bows. He became a widower before he could even consummate the marriage. So now he’s a prince who can not participate in political affairs or serve in any way other than being a prince, a member of the royal family. He’s got nothing but time on his hands. He spends the next 8 years studying and learning everything! Art. Music. Medicine. Law. Especially, the laws governing marriage. He hopes to find a legal way to have his marriage annulled.
In case you haven’t checked in for a while, ComiXology is dead. The decay has been slow, so this might not surprise everyone, but allowing itself to be bought by Amazon was the biggest mistake it ever made. All ComiXology purchases have now been absorbed into Kindle, which no comics reader wants to use as its interface is buggy and awful for this sort of medium. This, essentially, means we have to start all over. A few new digital comics subscription services have sprung up in ComiXology’s wake, and though none have become dominant yet, the one called Omnibus just got a big lift. IDW announced today its library of titles will be accessible through the Omnibus app, effective immediately. “We are excited to partner with Omnibus and their new digital reading app,” says Tara McCrillis, IDW’s Co-Publisher. “We believe the hole ComiXology is leaving in the market is going to be filled with innovators like the Omnibus team. Our goal is to allow our fans to have access to our content in as many places as possible.” IDW’s comics include Sonic the Hedgehog, Transformers, Star Trek, The Rocketeer, Dungeons & Dragons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (including the smash hit The Last Ronin), and many original stories with non-licensed characters. The deal also includes the titles from Top Shelf, the IDW subsidiary. There are now over 300 IDW comics on Omnibus, which isn’t quite as many as there were on ComiXology, but it’s a work in progress and the company says more will be added in the coming months. The Omnibus app is available on iPad and the web internationally. iPhone and Android versions are coming soon.
Free League once partnered with illustrator Simon Stålenhag to bring his book Tales From The Loop to life. The tabletop game became one of their biggest sellers, so why not try it again? Free League has announced a new RPG based on a different Stålenhag book, The Electric State. Its crowdfunding campaign launched on Kickstarter today and reached its goal in minutes. Both the book and game The Electric State are set in an alternate, post-apocalyptic 1997. In the storyline, a group of travelers are heading out on a journey through the ruins of America, littered with gigantic battle drones and discarded trash (I’d be more worried about the battle bots than the trash). In the game version, you and your friends will be playing those travelers. The Electric State RPG uses Free League’s Year Zero Engine and was written by Nils Hintze (Tales From the Loop RPG, The Walking Dead Universe RPG) in collaboration with Tomas Härenstam (Blade Runner RPG, Dragonbane, ALIEN RPG), Nils Karlén (Coriolis) and Mattias Johnsson Haake (Symbaroum). Johan Nohr (MÖRK BORG) will be providing graphic design and layouts. The digital edition of The Electric State costs a $24 pledge. The Standard Edition, which includes both physical and digital versions of the rulebook, costs $48. The Collector’s Edition runs $87 and includes a unique design exclusive to the Kickstarter. And today only, anyone who pledges to a tier with physical items in it will receive a free art print of the weird decayed Sonic-looking statue depicted on the book’s cover. Plus, all backers will receive access to the Alpha version of the RPG, to be sent out a few days after the campaign ends. You’ll also be seeing The Electric State on the big screen soon: Chris Pratt and Millie Bobby Brown are set to star in a movie adaption directed by the Russo brothers (Avengers: Endgame). But you can be the first among your friends to know what it is through this game. The campaign will remain open for the next 14 days, closing down on December 20. Reserve your copy today!
Rockstar said they’d release the GTA VI trailer tomorrow, December 5. But then a leak happened today and the company was like “screw it, here it is officially.” Behold: for the first time ever, this is what a Grand Theft Auto made with modern technology can look like:
“Korea-Khitan War” begins with a scene of a bloody battle. It is the 10 century in East Asia, and the fierce Khitans have been conquering various peoples. Their empire covered the regions from Liaodong to Mongolia and now they were determined to conquer Goryeo. The people of Goryeo, though outnumbered, were equally determined to fight the Khitans and not become subjugated. After those intense scenes showing how hard the fighting was between Goryeo and the Khitans, there is a flashback that shows what had happened several years earlier, before the war began.
