Flashback HD remake gets a new story trailer


7:15 PM on 08.14.2013



Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer focusing on the story for VectorCell's upcoming 2.5D remake, Flashback HD. Like many fans, I remain on the fence regarding the new direction they've decided to take with this time-honored classic. The original Flashback remains one of my favorite side-scrolling action adventure titles of the mid-90s, and while it's deserving of the attention, it certainly wouldn't be the first time I've been disappointed by someone's attempt to update a game I hold so dear.

Fortunately, as we mentioned back in July, the upcoming release will also include the original game, ensuring that fans of the original will have something to cling to, while giving newcomers an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the classic. Not too shabby, right? Flashback HD launches on Xbox Live Arcade August 21st, with both PlayStation Network and PC to follow at a later date.

Damn, these 20 Just Cause 3 screenshots are so wonderfully Just Cause

Twenty Just Cause 3 screenshots surfaced today, and they look like absolutely anything you could ever want from a Just Cause game. There are lots of explosions, gliding through the air tethered to various objects, and more than one instance of shooting atop a bus. Subtlety never was Just Cause's strong suit.
