Three levels in Early Access
Back in 2013, WayForward crowdfunded a new project by way of Kickstarter called Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the fourth game in the storied Shantae series. It managed to raise almost a million dollars in funding, whic...
Falcom loves you
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is coming to Europe this fall, NIS just announced.
The good word follows news that XSEED Games is publishing the upcoming PlayStation 3 and Vita RPG in North America this autumn. We'...
Catch a Ride
In life, sometimes it's best to celebrate the little victories. For instance, the forces of the universe have prevented me from attending E3 this year, but as a consolation, Telltale is releasing Tales from the Borderlands Ep...
Back in all her hair-whipping glory
Half-Genie Hero, the newest entry in the Shantae series, was funded on Kickstarter back in 2013. Today, WayForward released the E3 2015 trailer for the game, and it looks to be coming along quite nicely!
The trailer shows of...
Also asks about localization
The official Kingdom Hearts Facebook page posted a survey for fans to fill out that will be available till June 12. It asks about how important it is to fans to have games localized in their own language, be it text...
More than 180 traps
I really liked Deception IV, and I'm so down for more later this year once The Nightmare Princess hits. On arrival, it'll sport the "Deception Studio" mode, which allows you to create characters to maim and kill. You ca...
First hands-on with Metal Gear Solid V
Trailers from as far back as two years ago offer evidence enough, though. Do you all remember the giant, on-fire man supplanted in malevolence seconds later by the even more giant, on-fire whale careening through the sky to ...
Black Ops 3 confirmed for old consoles
No matter what Activision says, warfare hasn't advanced all that far. That's evident by the fact that Black Ops 3 will release on legacy consoles, making it the eleventh Call of Duty title on PS3 and Xbox 360.
Okay, that was great
With LEGO Jurassic World on my mind, I had forgotten that TT Games also has LEGO Marvel's Avengers lined up for this year. It's not releasing until winter, but here's a trailer ahead of E3.
Save for a split-second shot of Ul...
Exactly how I remembered it
Capcom just unleashed the first trailer and screenshots for its upcoming Resident Evil 0 remaster -- and hot damn does this thing look pretty. However, much like its predecessor, it's difficult to appreciate just how mu...
Last gen is 2000 and late
Matt Grandstaff, Bethesda's community lead has confirmed on NeoGAF that Fallout 4 will not be coming to last generation consoles. It had been a topic of contention since the game was revealed, but now the rumors can offi...
No launch plans announced just yet
Today at the annual Tales of Festival in Yokohama, Bandai Namco revealed the next entry in its long-running RPG franchise. As you might have gathered from the headline, it's called Tales of Berseria and is coming to PlayStati...
Beards for all
Action Henk has been described as Sonic the Hedgehog meets Trials. I don't disagree.
It's a platformer in which toys race across building blocks, slide down plastic orange car tracks, and grapple hook over the floor (because ...
Aksys Games localizing
Want to get your hands on BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend? It's getting localized this month actually, set for a June 30 release date on PS3, PS4, Vita, and Xbox One, compliments of Aksys Games.
Extend is an updat...
It's closed, so go try if you want in
Fairy Fencer F was released on PS3 last year to mixed reviews. If you wanted to check it out but never got the chance, Idea Factory is opening up beta testing for the PC edition, set to launch sometime this year.
PC, PS4, PS3, Vita
We're still waiting on Samurai Warriors 4-II (pictured above), the expanded version of last year's Samurai Warriors 4. It's coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita October 2 in Europe, September 29 in the US.
Check and check
If you're making a Star Wars game with pilotable ships, I'm going to want to zip around Hoth in a snowspeeder and tie knots around some AT-ATs. I'll also want to shoot down a bunch of TIE Fighters on my path to destroy the De...
Doing the right thing
Robert Summa just covered the news that Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing) is directing the campaign mode in the upcoming NBA 2K16. As some commenters pointed out, though, his story lacked a key fact that, really, deserves its ow...
Now that's an Air Bud
This GTA Online player looked to be dead in the water. The ground isn't much of an advantageous position to have when your enemy is floating in the sky. "Wasted" is imminent, right?
Not if your bestie has anything to say about it.
I was playing GTA:Online with a friend, and was pinned down by the cops. He helped out by being air support [reddit]
Fired employee tells all
[Update: Looks like this is most likely a hoax. The leaker said they had accidentally given information to Kotaku, which in turn caused her to get fired. Kotaku confirmed today that no information was ever given to them by th...
Uh, thanks but no thanks
A few Mighty No. 9 updates to talk about today. First, all launch-window versions of the game will come with the Retro Hero DLC, which gives protagonist Beck a blocky, weirdly Minecraft-esque appearance and, good lord, a one...
Sony, Square, c'mon. These Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward themed consoles are a bit low effort. The white PS4 does look fine, but both are literally just white and black PS4s with Sony's weak faceplates packed in.
I like the ...
She looks awesome
Arc System Works is developing a follow-up to Guilty Gear Xrd called Revelator, which will add fan favorite Johnny to the cast. But there's also an additional special mystery character on the way, which is now confirmed as "J...
Lightning Returns is such a weird game. Given my many issues with XIII (less with XIII-2 though), I didn't think I'd enjoy it in the slightest. Funnily enough, it ended up being one of my favorite games of 2014.
Gust's (Atelier) new PlayStation (3, 4, and Vita) action RPG Yoru no Nai Kuni, which I've seen translated as various permutations of Land of No Night and Country Without Night has a trailer today.
I think it looked a l...
Out on PS3 and PS4 in Japan
Natsuiro High School is out for PS3 and PS4 today in Japan. It is mostly about crawling on the ground to take illicit pictures of high school age girls' underwear. Or somehow getting them into those threadbare bikinis that a...
Third time is a charm
Another year, another round of Call of Duty DLC -- four rounds, yet again, in the case of Advanced Warfare. We've already had the Havoc and Ascendance packs drop so far as part of the Season Pass, and while they weren't bad offerings, nothing about them really vied for a purchase.
With Supremacy, there may be a case for the pass, at the very least at a discount down the line.
For a change
After the initial reveal of Guitar Hero Live, Activision's been slowly unveiling ten songs a week to keep us interested. The only problem is that the vast majority of songs (and artists) are completely unknown to the majority...
Ratings boards strike again
Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons was an emotional, memorable journey when it released two years ago. In fact, the twin-stick puzzler took a lot of people by surprise. As it turns out, it looks as if players will get to relive th...
And a shark
Activision's going through that awkward time of year where it's gearing up to make a big splash at E3 with it's new Call of Duty game, but it's not quite done promoting its old Call of Duty game. That's how we get trail...
