The long running manga series Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is getting a lot of attentions lately. First with the release of the acclaimed Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle on PS3 (here’s our review), then with the announcement of a very surprising western release of it next year. And now it’s the turn of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Stardust Shooters, published by Namco Bandai on iOS and Android.
Well, today Level-5 has announced a brand new Professor Layton game. Yes, even if Profesor Layton and the Azran Legacy should have been the last one.
So you’re now thinking that this is actually a good news. Well, it’s too early to know if you’re right or not, because the new Layton game presented today, called just Layton 7, is headed to iOS, Android and Nintendo 3DS, and it looks a lot different from all the previous titles in the series.
Here are the very first screenshots released by Famitsu today.
Well, those screens look different indeed. Will this be any good? We’ll see. In the meanwhile we got this hype train to board on.
Different sources confirms that the upcoming Android-powered console Ouya will feature plenty of unauthorized Nintendo consoles’ emulators at launch. Indeed an N64 emulator has already been sanctioned and included in the official store, a NES emulator will be ready on the day of the release and a SNES is in the closing stages, developed by two emulator teams.
This could be a smart move for the launch, stated that Ouya still has no launch titles…but what about Nintendo? They’re gonna be very pissed! Brace yourselves Ouya guys…
“As the economical crisis advances, the discontent of an entire population cannot help but outburst in Riots, where the sounds of many voices get heard at once.”
This is how Leonard Menchiari, former Editor/Cinematographer at Valve, commences his speech on the Indiegogo project. Indeed, RIOT is a turmoil simulator for PC, Mac, iOS, Android and OUYA seeking funding on the famous indie kickstarter-like site. The game will allow you to play as both manifestant and cop, to understand the riot though different points of view.
It seems like the guys behind the project are taking the mission very seriously declaring:
“The funding for the game will enable the developers to travel, document and experience live riots going on in Italy, Greece, Egypt and possibly many other places around the world (next to developing the game, buying software and hardware for development and testing).
Only comments and reports from the people joining the conflicts will be taken into consideration, attempting to depict both sides of the fight without bias, only objectivity and facts. We need you to spread the voice on an important issue through the medium of videogames. Stop listening to the lies of the media, shut down the television and get yourself in the line, to fight for your freedom of speech.“
So, this is not just an entertaining light-heart game, but it comes with more deep and serious meanings. Check out the trailer
It looks like a very interesting project, and if you agree with us help this guys make it real on their Indiegogo page (the project is already funded, but you know, every penny counts) and/or voting for the game on Steam Greenlight.
Keep yourselft updated on their official website.
We are very happy to share with you the news that The 90’s Arcade Racer has reached its goal (just $10k) on Kickstarter!
What are we talking about? The 90’s Arcade Racer is a racing game inspired by the great arcade racers of the 90’s, in particular it takes inspiration from some SEGA‘s materpieces, like Scud Race, Daytona USA and Indy 500.
The goal of Antonis Pelekanos (aka Pelikan13), designer of the game in collaboration with Nicalis, is to recreate the feeling those games evoked from players by maintaining the colorful, vibrant look and sense of speed but with modern visuals and car handling models. Basically a pure nostalgia-bath!
The Kickstarter project has been fully founded (but you can still give him some money if you want), so it is going to be made for real, and this is awesome!
The game will be available for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux and Wii U on a TBA date. Stay tuned.
After last night’s announcement (from this Wall Street Journal interview with OUYA’s CEO Julie Uhrman) that OUYA will be released on next June, the Android game system is now available for pre-order on Amazon.
As said before, the OUYA will cost $99.99, it comes with one joypad, but you can get the second for an extra $49.99 (and we hope they WON’T keep the currency exchange 1:1 with € and £).
