Official announcement sometime on 8/5
Koei Tecmo has had a website counting down to an announcement (currently in maintenance) of a new game taking place on August 5 and now that surprise has been spoiled a bit.
According to an ad on a wrapper of the 1...
You gotta be squiddin' me
Ever since Splatoon's characters were first announced, I've been seeing comparisons between the girl squid and Squid Girl from the manga series Shinryaku! Ika Musume. It seemed natural that these two series would eventually t...
New class options and backgrounds
Since Dungeons & Dragons has been an inspiration for approximately 20,842 video games, I'm going to start covering all forthcoming 5E releases. I know there's at least a few of you in the audience who either take on ...
Week two has a wider selection
Well, shit. I forgot to nab what I was going to during the first week of the PlayStation Store's summer sale (Apotheon and Roundabout). Thankfully, today brings overall better deals.
PlayStation Vita owners in particular will want to take a look at the full list below. Danganronpa and Danganronpa 2 are $20 each (or $16 each if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber).
Spooky buttons and horrifying coins
Remember that hot new Castlevania pachinko game featuring "erotic violence?"
Well, I'm guessing the reception was so positive that Konami decided to announce a new Silent Hill slot machine. Hurray! Just what we hav...
This isn't your dad's Rare
Rare Replay is available now and includes unlockable videos of canceled games with concept art, stories, and gameplay that have never been show to the public. Unlocking the videos means completing various challenges and...
Full trailer coming in 7 hours
So, between this, Fallout 4, and Metal Gear Solid V's Diamond Dog...year of the dog? Yeah, year of the dog.
Square has noted Final Fantasy XV was a ghost at E3 because the company was focusing on its gamescom showing. That tr...
Keep your cool
One after another, I watched everyone play Superhot wrong. They all made simple mistakes, threw their hands up in pleasant frustration, and then made the same mistakes again. Every single person was bad, and it was kind ...
It's a timed test right now
Today, Microsoft announced Season 3 of Killer Instinct, set to debut next year on PC and Xbox One. But wait, there was another tidbit too -- Rash from Battletoads will be playable today! Unfortunately, the reality is a l...
Also he shares animations with Kid Kool
Mario has been with us for a long time. He's an icon. He has been scrutinized, discussed, and deified among gamers. That doesn't matter at all right now. What matters right now is Mario's silhouette looks like it has a li'l d...
But not necessarily better
Sometimes when you see a game at a preview event, you don't even want to write about it. You just know that what was shown wasn't a good representation of the final game. Malicious intent isn't always to blame, either; there ...
Good gift-giving potential
Humble Bundle and Bandai Namco have partnered for a sale on some older games that are still well worth playing. If nothing else, I'd say this is a great way to give the gift of Pac-Man CE.
Name your price: Pac-Man Championsh...
Also on PC now
Cities: Skylines dropped in March on PC and kind of took all the wind out of SimCity's sails. Today at gamescom, Microsoft announced that Skylines would come to the Xbox One first, whenever it happens to arrive on c...
Did John Malkovich just call me a bitch?
So here we are with the Reckoning DLC pack, the last add-on for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare after Havoc, Ascendance, and Supremacy. All in all, it's been a great ride, and slowly but surely, each map pack has improved upon the last.
It's great then that Advanced Warfare is going out with a bang with its best DLC yet.
Ghost's lines re-recorded
Prolific voice actor Nolan North (Uncharted's Nathan Drake) is becoming the Ghost in Destiny, reports Game Informer. He'll voice the AI companion in The Taken King and, no joke, the original game too -- the dialogue is being ...
Do you like wood? What if it had a map etched into it? Alex Griendling has crafted just that, and it features Tristram, the classic town from the Diablo franchise. The whole shebang is 18 1/2" by 14", and will run y...
If you're into that thing
If you're into Sony's PS Now subscription service, you can now stream games on the Vita as of today. In addition, God of War III, Dynasty Warriors 8, MX Vs. ATV Supercross, Bomberman Ultra, and The Last Guy have hit the serv...
I'm digging the music too
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.
Yep, that's some Dark Souls right there
At today's Microsoft gamescom press conference, the general public finally got its first look at Dark Souls III, and it certainly looks like a new-gen Dark Souls game.
The trailer showed off several new bosses, multiple larg...
Creative Assembly is involved
Although they haven't given out any real details, Halo Wars 2 was confirmed today at Microsoft's gamescom conference. It will be coming to the PC and Xbox One in fall 2016. The trailer above gives us a quick look at the...
They recreated every damn puddle y'all
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.
"That's...that's where we are!!!"
[pulls pud over close ups of lil flags on the uniforms]
Bang, bang, you're dead
I've never really been a fan of the Just Cause series, but this new trailer for Just Cause 3 shown at Microsoft's gamescom press conference taught me everything I need to know. Just Cause 3 is rock music, silliness, and over-...
I wonder how well it will do
Microsoft has unveiled a new Halo tournament, dubbed the Halo World Championship. It'll feature one million dollars in prizes, and will focus around Halo 5: Guardians. Additionally, the publisher revealed a new 1TB limited e...
Where do you slide?
I'm at Microsoft's gamescom press conference battling bad Wi-Fi and mashing the keyboard in hopes that words magically form. Sometimes I get a chance to look up at the what's happening on the screen. It just so happens that ...
Xbox One bundle, week early access
That is FIFA Ultimate Team, the thing EA uses to somehow make more money than just releasing a new FIFA every year (two when it's a World Cup year).
"FUT fans this is a deal for you." Xbox One folks get FIFA 16 one week early...
Can you feel the excitement?
Guerrilla warfare shooter Homefront: The Revolution is getting an exclusive multiplayer beta this winter on Xbox One. Until then, watch some propaganda about our faceless Korean overlords.
New game from Monkey Island creator
Seriously, is it just me?
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. I could always go for the occasional arena title with friends.
