Review: Fightback

Ninja Theory is one of the most interesting developers in the business. They have the opportunity to develop high-budget, low-grossing games more often than pretty much any other studio in existence -- then move on to another...

Report: Ninja Theory may shift to mobile development

[Update: A representative at Ninja Theory has denied these claims, stating that they are open to mobile and console development. It appears as if Tameem was mouthing off. Again. Someone really needs to implement a "no talking...

PC Port Report: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West has finally made its way to the PC after years of hanging out exclusively on home consoles. It's always been a beautiful and enjoyable game so I was excited to jump back into it on the computer. ...

Blue haired girl: Ninja Theory teases next gen game?  photo
Blue haired girl: Ninja Theory teases next gen game?
by Steven Hansen

Ninja Theory, developer of the recent, divisive DmC: Devil May Cry, has a new trailer up on its website that chronicles its work during this soon to be recent generation. Spliced in is also a more mysterious project featuring a blue haired woman, which could be a glimpse of whatever new IP the developer is working on for next generation. The video ends with a "thanks for a kickass generation" note, which seems to imply, along with the rapidly approaching PS4 and Xbox One launch dates, that the unknown project is indeed for next gen.

The video serves as a nice remembrance for what the studio has worked on this console generation, with a small, sad counterpoint. Each montage features a Metacritic score awarded to the title in question. It is, I suppose, nice to track what can be seen as improvement, but it's a sad reminder of things like Metacritic-based worker bonuses. This is in turn a sad reminder of how poorly Enslaved: Odyssey to the West seems to have sold because it's a phenomenal game featuring some of the best writing, as well as acting, of the generation.

Still, all seems well. DmC: Devil May Cry is in the can, much to the chagrin of many of you -- personally, I dig the game for its gorgeous, Gravity Rush-styled aesthetic alone -- and Ninja Theory seems to be back to creating new IPs. Warm's the heart. Now comes the painful wait for something that can hopefully surpass Enslaved. Seriously, that game is fantastic, go buy a damn copy.

DmC's Vergil DLC about 3 to 5 hours of new content
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The upcoming downloadable story content for DmC picks up right where the game finishes, so needless to say this will be one spoiler filled preview.     

At the end of DmC, Dante plunges his sword into Vergil and nearly kills the misguided brother. Vergil is spared, but he's left battered, bruised, and lost in a new realm that's closer to that of a hell-like dimension compared to the limbo areas that players went through as Dante.

Not only is Vergil badly hurt and lost in an unknown dimension, but he's also lost the amulet he was given by his parents, thus losing a good portion of his powers.
