Divinity - Original Sin 2 - Gamplay Journal - Part 11

It's been practically a month since my last foray into Divinity - Original Sin 2. A bit part of this was because of the directionless muddling I was doing to try and access Braccus Rex's vault, but even more than that was the strain this game was putting on my iPad's hard drive. At 17.15GB, I have to do a lot of juggling with app offloads and reinstalls just to maintain room for it.

In fact, my break came about because its file size was such a huge headache that I deleted the app entirely for a couple of weeks--which left me hoping that its cloud save functionality was actually good and would let me resume once I decided I wanted to. For the most part, this is true, but it took more effort than I was hoping for to be able to resume progress from a fresh install of the game. I had to connect my iPad to my PC and move some files around to get this done, though I understand that the latest update to Divinity 2 also allows for save syncing with Steam cloud saves, but obviously only if you own the game on both mobile and PC (I do not).

A few months ago, one of our favorite stealth action mobile titles, Space Marshals 3, got a story update that nearly doubled the original game's length. Support for the game isn't showing any signs of slowing down, because just this week another content pack came out that adds a fresh batch of challenges for you to test out Burton's gadgets and your own sneaking skills on.

Called Bounty Mission Pack #1, this addition to Space Marshals 3 adds 12 new levels that are disconnected from the game's main story. Instead, these isolated maps offer one-off challenges in both "action" and "stealth" modes, which reward you for taking a certain number of enemy targets in a specific way.

Steam Link Spotlight is a feature where we look at PC games that play exceptionally well using the Steam Link app. Our last entry looked at Jupiter Hell. Read about how it plays using Steam Link over here.

This time, we're looking at what seems to be the PC counterpart and evolution of Regency Love. There's no apparent lineage between the creators here, but Ambition - A Minuet in Power certainly bears a close resemblance to Tea for Three's excellent (and underrated) mobile title about the trials and tribulations of navigating the complicated social web of old European high society.

EA to let other devs use Apex Legends' ping system

Posted by Nitisha Upadhye on August 24th, 2021

Before the in-game voice chat and chats were invented, multiplayer games were not exactly having a good time. Then came Apex Legends with its all-new 'ping' system that lets players communicate effectively without having to deal with buffering audio or undecipherable texts.

Other FPS multiplayer games like COD and Fortnite have similar communication systems, but the ping remains the most sophisticated option. Obviously, such innovation has to be patented, and that's what EA did.

He can inspire his fellow combatants in the team as well. With the deadly virus sweeping the world, you’ll do everything you can to survive the apocalypse - and Samuel’s Infinite Fury skill on the verge of death can restore a teammate to full fury.

Aside from limited-time in-game anniversary gifts as a thank-you to the fans, players can look forward to the new IP crossover event coming in September. Care to venture a guess?
