Yomawari from NIS is still creepy, still cute


I'm digging the music too
Aug 04
// Chris Carter
A month ago we just had screens to go by, but Yomawari is shaping up nicely if this new trailer from NIS is any indication. Backed by beautiful music, we get to see a bit of gameplay here, which involves a girl searching for her sister and dog in a city. It'll drop on October 29 in Japan on Vita (!).

Lots of non-exclusives
Hey, you know what? I actually enjoyed Microsoft's gamescom conference for the most part. Sure it had a lot of non-exclusives in there, but it wasn't a train-wreck. I mean, when your heavy-hitter is Halo Wars 2 you know it's not all that exciting, but again, it could have been a lot worse. Plus, I know a lot of people who actually really dug Halo Wars, so I bet they're happy.

Look, Forza Motorsport 6's dynamic rain features might be all well and good, but to your average dude that just wants to race cars real fast, these guys are way too stoked about some puddles.

New trailer
Aug 04
// Chris Carter
Mojang has shifted gears a bit since the Microsoft aquisition, and is going to be publishing some more projects in the future. One such game is Cobalt, an arena battler, that will debut on PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One at an undisclosed date. Based on the trailer above it looks like a fun little romp, and I could always go for the occasional arena title with friends.

Aug 04
// Steven Hansen
Bad name, but man Ark: Survival Evolved looks great. It's already playable on Steam in Early Access, but it's coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One early next year. Not sure if it can do as well there as it will on PC, where people who play stuff like DayZ tend to congregate, but, hey, name one more cool-looking dinosaur game coming out anytime soon. Really, if I'm missing one, let me know.

Microsoft announced today at gamescom that Killer Instinct will be getting a Season 3, which will debut in March 2016. That goes for the Xbox One and the upcoming PC version, and Xbox One fight sticks and controllers will work on PC. Also, Rash from Battletoads will debut in the game today, which is pretty awesome. I'm up for a Season 3, as the core game has been excellent so far.
