I really enjoyed reading through Game Informer's exhaustive summary of Destiny's backstory and lore. I love a good lore recap, and I've recently gotten pretty into reading Destiny's Grimore cards myself. Jaren Ward for president!
Ayane the guest character from the Dead or Alive series is now available for download in Senran Kagura: Estival Versus in Japan. Marvelous provides another look with screenshots and details on pricing.
Based on this video, it looks like Platinum Games really nailed the look and feel of G1 in Transformers: Devastation. Yep, it's important to remember that Platinum is behind this, so in addition to a great looking cartoon brawler, it will probably have a pretty good combat system as well.
I mean, there isn't much more to say than this looks incredible on paper. I hope the finished game ends up meeting my expectations, but so far, so good.
I haven't been to a Dave & Busters in years, but the rumor that Pokken Tournament may be heading west by way of arcade location tests would have been enough to get me out there. Sadly, it looks like that may not be happening, according to the Pokemon Company's director of consumer marketing, J.C. Smith.
Speaking to Nintendo World Report, Smith responds to whether or not the move was officially organized, stating, "It was not actually. In fact, I haven’t been involved in that, but I’ve been told that the arcade machine is not coming to the U.S., so I don’t know exactly what the plan is. But that was a long while ago, so who knows what may have changed. You know, you can’t stop someone from buying an arcade system so who knows what’s down the road. I haven’t been working closely on the arcade side at all because, really, I never worked on the arcade side but we’ll see. I think that will be handled by Bandai Namco. But I’d have to follow-up with you on that."
So to give you a quick recap, Dave & Busters originally stated that they were working with Bandai Namco, but it appears as if the wires weren't crossed somewhere, and Nintendo/The Pokemon Company aren't directly involved with this western arcade test. We've reached out to all three parties to try to get a full confirmation on the situation.
Pokken is still on track for a western release in 2016 on Wii U.
It's hard to believe that Treasurenauts was announced all the way back in 2013, but here we are over two years later, and still no game. That's because Renegade Kid was sidetracked by a few other projects, but now, they seem to be wrapping up, allowing the team to get back to business.
Mutant Mudds Super Challenge and the Dementium 3DS remake have wrapped, so Treasurenauts is coming back to the forefront of development, as well as a mobile game that will not be appearing on any Nintendo platforms. For an indie outfit Renegade Kid seems to be keeping busy!
Double Fine Productions rarely retreads ground with its games, so it comes as no surprise that its next big title is not Psychonauts 2 (like it should be) but is instead a 2D adventure about a disembodied head who can attach to and control various robot bodies. When he's not attached to a body, the protagonist head flies around with rockets where his neck would be. Yep, that's the familiar weirdness we've come to expect from Tim Schafer's studio.
In a way, what's shown in the trailer almost reminds me of Stacking, in that the main character can take on different identities and abilities by latching himself onto different bodies. Past that it doesn't look too much like the earlier Double Fine title, with its 1970s-era laser-heavy visuals.
IGN has a brief preview written up about it. Otherwise, check out the trailer below. No platforms have been announced for Headlander yet.
Over the past three nights I've watched my lovely boyfriend and our hunky Australian roommate stream Until Dawn and after finishing the game we decided to play the pre-order DLC chapter "The Road Not Taken" only we couldn't find it. Turns out we already had.
After researching online and finding many people were also confused I figured I'd get to the bottom of this and clear up the confusion. The DLC really isn't a standalone chapter, but the final section of chapter two where the new couple Emily and Matt go back to look for her bag after Emily gets into an argument at the cabin. It mostly contains conversations between the couple about their relationship and Emily's past with Mike.
Basically not a whole lot happens, and you're not missing out on much.
While researching my article on Monica Rambeau's unfortunate history, I naturally re-read one of her standout series: Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen's Nextwave: Agents of HATE. It's a comic I already held dear to my heart, but it re-affirmed what I previously thought: It's the most joyful comic Marvel have ever released.http://io9.com/the-unfortunat...
Five bucks spent and an hour in, I'm having a very good time with Lara Croft GO, the new mobile Tomb Raider spin-off that came out a few hours ago. It's turn-based. It's full of tomb raiding. How about I show you? You'll see some early levels?and a comparison to the very cool precursor Hitman GO?in my 13-minute playthrough above. Enjoy!
If you don't play your cards right, lots of people can die in Until Dawn. One such gory finish has been censored in Japan. But rather than modify the game (or death) in any way, the screen just cuts to black while all the nastiness goes down.
