N3II Promo Posters 1 & 2

Two very cool promotional posters for the upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive N3II: Ninety-Nine Nights II show off a nicely grim aesthetic I'm hoping the game manages to pull off a bit more than the original (well, a LOT more, actually).

Konami has the publishing rights this time out, but I'm guessing they more than likely had not much at all to do with the development on the sequel. I've got my fingers crossed anyway that the game will be at least equal to the first one in terms of massive waves of enemies and very tough bosses. We shall see, I suppose...

Gallery: Hunted: The Demon's Forge

InXile Entertainment is baaaaack... and this time, they're putting together an even more action-focused RPG than their fun console and PC remake of The Bard's Tale from a few years back. Hunted: The Demon's Forge looks like it'll be a blast to play through thanks to a co-op focused online mode and combat that's a mix of hack & slash with a bit of cover-based ranged weapons work "borrowed" from games such as Gears of War. Granted, I'm hoping the game will support single-player grinding as well (my personal favorite style of play), but with Bethesda handling the publishing duties, it'll also be really intriguing to see just how deep the game gets when it comes to story.

All I know for sure is we've a lovely, deadly magic user and a mean-looking tattooed dude that can swing his sword quite well as the main characters. Well, actually... I know a bit more than that (and you can too once you read the press release and check out the screens below the jump) ...
