A different kind of orc by commanderhavoc
A different kind of orc
A guy I'm watching FA put up a while ago a rather cool sketch of a more unique looking type of orc, he took a lot of inspiration from the design of Azog the Defiler in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey with that he drew a more lean and athletic orc rather then the more common brutish type, plus he also went for a different skin color instead of green or greenish.
This drawing here was done by my very good friend :iconsvesamikreteni:, also known as FluffyBastard on Furaffinity as a request.
And lets be honest here, a lot of people are generally tired of the generic look most orcs have in Dungeons & Dragons, Elder Scrolls, Warcraft and other franchises, at least the Lord of the Rings orcs have much more variety in their design, thus breaking the tired mold by not having useless tusks, seriously why do they insist on having them when they don't use them, no green/greenish skin, more lean and generally agile with no muscleguts or such as well as none of the excessive body hair.
If orcs started to look more like this in Elder Scrolls and other RPGs, then I would consider playing as one, come on lets see some more unique designs like this for them.

I went and preordered the upcoming Mad Max game on PC via Green Man Gaming today, this due in part to a newsletter mail I got from them that the game is in their VIP Deals section with 40 % off.
What I have seen of the game looks really good and I thought this was a good time to actually go and preorder it.
The game's plot is gonna be simple, Max's car gets stolen by a band of lunatic bandits called the War Boys lead by Scabrous Scrotus, who is the son of the psychopath Immortan Joe and he gets real badly beaten up in the process before being left for dead in the wasteland with no supplies or anything.
But he however survives and he encounters a hunchbacked mechanic by the name of Chumbucket who is obsessed with creating the perfect vehicle, the Magnum Opus, and they form an unlikely partnership after he tells Max that this could be his best shot at getting revenge on Scrotus.
You will be able to build your very own wasteland car in this game with all sorts of different parts that you can find in the rusty husks and whatnot littered throughout this unforgiving world, of course you have to be careful with not putting on too many heavy things as it will affect how quickly the car can go and sometimes it might be better to have a light vehicle that can easily outrun and/or outmaneuver the raiders.
The game is also being developed by Avalanche Studios, the same Swedish company that gave us the Just Cause games as well as Renegade Ops, so you can expect some really over the top action-packed car battles in this.
Here are some trailers for it:

September seems to be a good month for gamers with titles like Metal Gear Solid V, Mad Max and Eugen Systems' new strategy game Act of Aggression, I'd say these games will help us in the still long wait for Fallout 4 in november.

Well it is no secret really that Konami as of lately have been making a lot of really REALLY dumb decisions, the most glaring of which was cancelling Silent Hills and then months later announce a bloody stupid Pachinko machine that is a mockery of the beloved psychological horror franchise.
And then of course we have all the reports, which have been confirmed by both former and current employees, that Konami is treating its workers like nothing more then prisoners and even watching over them like something straight out of George Orwell's 1984 with security cameras EVERYWHERE and people making sure that anybody who takes a lunch or smoke break for too long, even by just a minute, gets reprimanded.
And to think this decline began with the success of a mobile game called Dragon Collection....

Right, lets discuss games that have some great lore here.
But I must first say that Five Nights at Freddy's does not count here as its "lore" is just very VERY generic creepypasta that someone new, inexperienced and with a lack of imagination would write.
Anyway, I'll start off with some good ones.

Destiny.
Sure, people give it a lot of flak for not telling you as much in the cutscenes in regards to the events that lead up to the game, one of those being who your Guardian was before they died and then was resurrected by the Ghost that was tasked by the Traveler to find you, but it still has a very interesting lore with some of the alien races, for example that the Fallen most likely in the past were a very mighty and proud race before they fell from grace and became the scavengers and savages you encounter.
Plus the expansion House of Wolves give us more insight into the Fallen with how they work and such.
Also, some people actually have come up with the theory that the world of Destiny is a cycle that keeps repeating, they point at the part of the game's intro where the astronauts on Mars are wandering and how the camera at one point rapidly changes the background.
And also if you look at the description of the weapon called The Stranger's Rifle given to you by the Exo Stranger after you complete the Black Garden mission, it says that "Ghost's analysis suggests this weapon has been exposed to incredible forces...and that parts of it shouldn't yet exist." and also the card for her that is told through her POV suggests that she's been experiencing the same event again and again for who knows how long, only with different people every time but always the same event. 

Dark Souls and Bloodborne.
If there is something that From Software never ceases being good at, then it is creating a dark, mysterious and yet at the same time beautiful world that players explore.
The way they just give the players some small hints at what happened in the game's world is enough to make people come up with theories in regards to what happened, especially in Bloodborne with how dreams and nightmares play a big part of the game's plot.
Some wonder if what is happening in Bloodborne is actually real and not just a really bad dream, something that the very mysterious character known only as the Blood Minister says at the start after you create a character: "Whatever happens... You may think it all a mere bad dream..."
And yes, Bloodborne is full of references to H.P. Lovecraft's works, especially to the Dream Cycle series where one of the main characters who was searching for a mythical city in the Dreamlands actually died in the real world, yet he is still alive in that strange world.
That in a way also ties into one of the game's bosses, Micolash, who upon defeat will scream "Now I'm waking up, I'll forget everything!", although as most players will have figured out, he is actually dead in the "real world".
Yesterday, we got what is quite possibly the best announcement from Capcom up to date.
They are gonna do a remake of the beloved Resident Evil 2.
Yes, after so many years of fans telling Capcom about how much they love RE2 and that it deserves to be re released for modern systems, they've decided to go and do a full blown remake of it.
Producer Yoshiaki Hirabyashi appeared yesterday in a video on the official Resident Evil YouTube channel to announce the remake, however he did say that it is gonna take some time before it is done since they're basically building the game from the ground up, it simply ain't possible to just HD remaster the original PS1 game considering its low poly graphics and whatnot.

But if they make it like the Resident Evil Remake for the Gamecube, which also got a HD remaster several months ago on all the modern consoles and PC, then we might get one hell of an outstanding experience with even more tension then before.
A lot of people agree on that game was a perfect example of how to remake a beloved classic with better graphics as well as better voice actors, almost everyone knows how notoriously bad the voice acting was in the original Resident Evil 1.
So now all we have to do is wait until Capcom releases some footage in the future, considering how Capcom is actually trying to make things better with these remasters and whatnot, I'd say it will be well worth the wait.
