Desperados 3 and System Shock remake got a demo.
https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/05/27/play-demos-for-desperados-3-and-system-shock-right-now-via-gog/

I can't imagine they are exclusive to the platform, but they are featured on the front page of GOG current sale. Perhaps timed exclusive? It is still 3 weeks until Desperados release (guess who is counting!) so plenty of time to bring it to steam as well. 

EDIT: Yup, Desperados is pretty much a higher budget Shadow Tactics, and that's all I wanted. The pausing Showdown Mode does make things a bit easier, but that might mean I might try to fight a way out instead of immediately reloading. The Demo consist of tutorial, first mission (half tutorial half genuine mission) and a taste of mission no. 3. Runs great, looks great plays great. I love the end-mission detailed replay, and customizable difficulty settings. Can't wait for the release. Mocap improves presentation a lot (as well as more detail and some nice little visual touches), though it is somewhat at odds with lack of facial detail, and blocky hands.

In other news, Necromunda (read: scifi Mordheim) went up for pre-order for a launch 28. August, then had the date changed to Summer 2020. The news is: @melkathi isn't buying it (at this point in time) as they are launching with just 3 out of the 6 core gangs of the setting, even less than the 4 initial warbands of the Mordheim launch.

 

Game Devs: Because last time we launched Early Access and that gave people an incomplete experience which impacted reviews and sales negatively, we will not do so again.

Also Game Devs: We will do a full launch, not Early Access, with perceived less content than our previous Early Access release.

That's disappointing to hear and the lack of any news about the game already stopped me from expecting anything in the first place.

Their website claims Necromunda's "iconic gangs" will be in the game. As someone who never played the board game, are those gangs in any way interesting? The two they showed in the cinematic trailer looked so boring it turned me off the game even more.

Plus I was hoping to play Arbitrators. Or settle for the Enforcers(?) as discount Arbitrators. Now I'm not sure even they'll be in the game.

They are launching with Goliath (vat-grown bodybuilder foundry workers), Escher (scifi amazon gang with a DNA defect that leaves the men of the bloodline feeble and weak), and Orlocks (pretty vanilla biker gang without bikes).

They left out Cawdor (garbage collectors and religious zealots), Van Saar (high tech but wearing suits because of weakened immune system due to constant rad poisoning), and Delaque (bald spies with goggles and trench coats).

That would have been the core gangs.

 

The new tabletop version also has:

Chaos Helot Cult (average chaos cultists who do rituals in their spare time)

Corpse Grinder Cult (workers at the Soylent Green factory turned to Khorne worship and cannibalism)

Genestealer Cult

Enforcers

Venators (bounty hunter templates for people who like to convert miniatures)

Ogryn Slaves

 

The original tabletop had (and those will not make it into the new) :

Spyrers (rich kids with super advanced alien tech hunting poor people for sports)

Ratskins (native Americans wearing giant rat pelts)

Scavvies (the poor scavengers living below the bottom of society, and often mutating in the refuse)

 

Ash Waste Nomads living outside the hives were teased for the tabletop game.

So were Brat gangs (the original rich kids gangs with hoverbikes in Confrontation and Ian Watson's Space Marine novel)

Another Death Come True trailer from a few months ago. No English dub or subtitles for this one. I have no clue what is happening but I'm into it. Knowing that it's from the director of Danganronpa, it's a pretty safe bet that this game is going to be really ****ed up. Japanese studios certainly aren't the only ones making really twisted games, but IMHO they are the worldwide leaders at it. Stay weird, Japan.

There's a new Trailer for Corven, a game in the spirit of Ultima. It even has the original Lord British, but that is pretty much everything Richard Garriott has to do with it.

In pther news, Take 2 reached new level of being ****...

First they cancelled Kerbal Space Program 2, which caused the indie developer going out of business

Second they created new internal studio called Intercept and poached the staff of defunct indie dev

Third they renewed Kerbal Space Program 2 as internal project

All of that allegedly because the Indie devs declined thier offer for possible buyout of studio...

Seems they shafted the studio heads harder than the workers.

Just watched the first 30 seconds and read the title, but didn't Bethesda do exactly the same.

Pretty much the same, and Beth got away with it multiple times before Human Head made it public.

Likely that this isn't the first time 2k has done it either.

Jokes on them for getting in bed with Bethesda!  A company known for horrendous malpractice.  Besides, every single one of their games is 50% garbage and 50% great (I do like their plots and atmosphere but their game mechanics tend to be absolute tripe).
