Godzilla: Walking in the shoes of the king of monsters photo
Godzilla: Walking in the shoes of the king of monsters
by Elliot Gay

Fun fact. When I was a child, my mother sat me down in front of Godzilla films and subsequently burned them into my brain. As a result, I ended up learning Japanese and moving to Japan as an adult. It's not a stretch to say that I'm where I am because of the big G.

So you can imagine my excitement when I heard that Bandai Namco was developing a Godzilla game for the PS3. The big monster has had more than his fair share of game appearances, but none of them have ever been any good. I recall playing Super Godzilla on the SNES and trying my best to convince myself that it was the best game I had ever played. Needless to say, I had some issues believing my own words.

Former Final Fantasy devs team with European studio on JRPG Zodiac photo
Former Final Fantasy devs team with European studio on JRPG Zodiac
by Steven Hansen

French developer Kobojo has announced a new game, Zodiac, made in collaboration with frequent Final Fantasy composer Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy XII), series scenario writer Kazushige Nojima (Final Fantasy VII) and sound designer Masaaki Kaneko.

The team describes the completely hand drawn turn-based RPG as, "Final Fantasy meets Valkyrie Profile and Dragon's Crown in a new online multiplayer experience." 

Kobojo, which has Paris and Scotland-based studios, started as a social game developer, but has since shifted focus to developing high quality role-playing games for mobile devices. It is showing Zodiac at TGS on iOS and PlayStation Vita, but there is no lead platform for the loose 2015 release date.

CEO Mario Rizzo explained that things like platform and price model will need to be worked out on the business side. "It could be Xbox," he said, and noted that it is a Unity game so PC and console versions are all viable (it was being demoed with a controller). Cross platform compatibility, too, will be completely dependent on platform holders, as there are "no technical restrictions" on being able to play the game on your phone, then pick up the same character on your Vita or elsewhere. "Only business restrictions," Rizzo said.

A bunch of skeletons explode in the first 20 minutes of Hellraid

Techland's decision to delay Hellraid and move it to PS4, Xbox One, and PC seems to be paying off. That said, you may want to skip the first half of this 20-minute video -- it begins with the first level, which is slow to ge...

Review: D4: Dark Dreams Donít Die (Prologue, Episode 1, Episode 2)
by Chris Carter

D4 starts off rather grounded. The game's opening narration describes the tale as a "story of a man with a very strange fate." A man whose wife was murdered, and is tirelessly searching for her killer.

Then a cat girl named Amanda runs into your apartment, spits a mouse into your mouth, and you puke.

Hardline 29: Destiny's lukewarm reception, first taste of Smash Bros., and the world is a vampire
by Jordan Devore

Hardline is back! For this week's episode, Max filled in to speak with me and Bill about Destiny and how the game fails to live up to Bungie's pedigree in some areas. Super Smash Bros., on the other hand, is just plain great, even if the 3DS demo is on the short side.

Max also became obsessed with Goat Simulator clones on the App Store and shared his idea for a potential Duke Nukem / Aliens crossover game that would be amazing, in the right hands.

Here's what you'll get in the Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo photo
Here's what you'll get in the Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo
by Jonathan Holmes

Nintendo released a demo for Smash Bros. 4 on the 3DS to Club Nintendo Platinum members last week. Pandemonium in the Smash Bros. community ensued. It's a relatively small piece of the game -- five characters, one arena, two modes (solo or group), and a little sandbag action during loading times on multiplayer matches. Don't let that fool you though. It's still got enough content to keep you busy for days, maybe weeks.

Last week's version of the demo has unlimited plays. The public demo releasing on the eShop tomorrow morning does not. That's going to be a problem for a lot of you. Unless you plan to keep the demo running on your 3DS until the game comes out on October 3, chances are you'll run out of plays before you've gotten your fill.

Previously we had a glimpse of Quiet's escapades with the full version of the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain teaser posted earlier this week. Now feast your eyes on this 21-minute gameplay demo straight from TGS 2014.

In the video, Quiet and Snake are infiltrating an outpost in what looks to be a jungle biome rather than the desert, and we finally get to see more of Quiet in action. I don't know about you, but I was waiting for an abundance of gameplay like this, and it's looking solid. Get it? I crack me up.
