Dontnod has been teasing the sequel to the critically-acclaimed Life is Strange for a while now. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit was released a couple of months ago for free to give players a taste of the upcoming Life is Strange 2. In Captain Spirit, players had a chance to delve into the imaginative mind of Chris, a young boy who pretends to be the amazing superhero Captain Spirit.

For those who played the game, the reveal for Life is Strange 2 may shock you a bit, as Chris is nowhere to be seen. However, there are two other faces you may recognize from the end of that title. These two are the main protagonists of the upcoming sequel to Life is Strange.

Enter Quincy Pringle, a young developer who is ready to liven up the RPG scene with his new game OTHER: Her Loving Embrace. The game takes traditional turn-based battles and turns each one into an interactive experience.

I had a chance to talk to Quincy about his upcoming game, and he had a lot to share, including details about the game's story, characters, additional gameplay mechanics, and much more. Quincy went into detail about his passion for game development, some of his greatest inspirations, and even some hardships he's faced when working on projects in the past.

At E3 2018, Bethesda announced that The Elder Scrolls: Legends would be coming to home consoles in an effort to expand its audience. When speaking to Game Informer on this topic, Pete Hines of Bethesda confirmed the game would be cross-platform for all systems.

Its success made a sequel a safe bet, but some fans were surprised by the decision to name it DOOM Eternal. What prompted this branding?

Fallout 76 is completely unlike any other game in the series, putting a huge emphasis on multiplayer gameplay. One thing that usually plagues online games is griefing. Sometimes there's just one player that is there to do nothing other than to ruin your experience for their pleasure or benefit. There are many ways that developers have dealt with griefers in the past, which usually results in a temporary or permanent ban from the server. However, Bethesda is taking a more unique approach to griefers in Fallout 76.
