Taking a break from posting for a bit. Need to consider options. Have a continued good summer!

SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY
Finally got around to the indiegame hit Sword & Sworcery. Somehow incredibly retro and progressive at the same time. Pretty special. Great soundtrack.
Sword & Sworcery was created by the Superbrothers duo design team at Canadian developer Capybara games.
It’s for the I - pad and phone, Mac and PC.

Skyrim Dawnguard DLC details form as beta-testers divulge

The beta-testers of the upcoming Skyrim add-on have leaked details, and the DLC’s story and content is coming clear.

It is a tale of a Vampire lord named Harkon intent on using an Elder Scroll to blot out the sun. The choice you have as a player is either join Harkon - and in the process learn several new vampiric skills from an all new perk tree - or join the Dawnguard, who are a group of vampire slayers. The Dawnguard will learn to use crossbows, and may also hire armored trolls as followers!

A new dragonshout is also included, along with a summon-anywhere skeleton horse (for the vampires, one presumes).

Vampire and new Werewolf perk trees listed below.

Vampire Perks

  • Power of the Grave - 50 point bonus to health, magicka and stamina as a Vampire Lord

  • Detect All Creatures (requires Power of the Grave)

  • Mist Form - turn yourself into an invulnerable cloud of mist while regenerating your health, magicka, and stamina (requires Detect All Creatures)

  • Supernatural Reflexes - you move quicker, enemies move slower (requires Mist Form)

  • Blood Healing - killing a person with a power attack bite restores all your health. (requires Power of the Grave)

  • Unearthly Will - night powers and Blood Magic cost 33% less (requires Power of the Grave)

  • Poison Talons - melee attacks deal 20 points of poison damage (requires Unearthly Will and Blood Healing)

  • Night Cloak - a shroud of bats feed on enemies within melee range. (requires Poison Talons)

  • Vampiric Grip - Blood Magic: can pull a creature to you from a distance, and do choking damage once it’s close (requires Power of the Grave)

  • Summon Gargoyle (requires Vampiric Grip)

  • Corpse Curse - paralyze your foes with this magical blast (requires Summon Gargoyle)

Werewolf Perks

  • Bestial Strength (four levels) - first level: do 25% more damage as a werewolf

  • Totem of Ice Brothers (requires Bestial Strength)

  • Totem of the Predator (requires Bestial Strength)

  • Totem of Terror - Werewolf Howl of Terror affects even higher level creatures (requires Bestial Strength)

  • Totem of the Moon - summon an ally werewolf with a howl. (requires Totem of Ice Brothers)

  • Animal Vigor - 100 point bonus to health and stamina in beast form. (requires Bestial Strength)

  • Gorging - feeding heals twice as much health (requires Animal Vigor)

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. Pictured: 2 dual screens. (Click to enlarge)
SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY
Still in mobile gaming mode, today you get 2 dual screens for the price of one single!
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is a tactical roleplaying game for the Nintendo DS that also runs on the new 3DS. Shadow Dragon is a remake of the very first Fire Emblem game, but is the 11th(!) installment in the series.
Great game, one of the best reasons for owning a DS if you ask me, with lovely sprite based graphics and a good fantasy storyline. Strong character design and stories coupled with permadeath make the Fire Emblem games hardcore heartbreakers. But also encourage caring, engaged, gaming.
Masamune Shirow, of Ghost in the Shell fame, is the artist behind the character illustrations.
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon for the Nintendo DS was released by Japanese developer Intelligent Systems at the end of 2008. If you scrounge around a bit you might still be able to find it.
