19 Aug

yakuza Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin

Despite the poor sales for the latest installment on Wii U, SEGA is not giving up with the Yakuza franchise. They don’t indeed, in fact today SEGA of Japan presented a brand new spin-off for the series, called Ryu Ga Gotoku: Ishin.

The game will bring player back to past as “Ishin” (維新) means “Restoration”, referring to the Meiji Restoration. Let’s say a sort of spiritual sequel to Yakuza: Kenzan!, the other Yakuza historical spin-off.

We don’t know anything else just yet, and also the platform and the release date are still TBA. But we have a trailer to show you. Enjoy!

grand theft auto online

Wow! Just wow folks! Rockstar Games has released a brand new shiny gameplay video about one of the many features of the new GTA: Grand Theft Auto Online. And it seems to be one of the most exciting! Here we go!

The video shows how they’ve taken the fundamental GTA concepts of freedom, ambient activity and mission-based gameplay and made them available to multiple players in an incredibly detailed and responsive online world.

This mode seems to be very ambitious, in fact you’ll have the freedom to explore alone or with friends, work cooperatively to complete missions, band together to participate in activities and ambient events, or compete in traditional game modes with the entire community, all with the personality and refined mechanics of Grand Theft Auto V.

Everything just look awesome!

Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with every retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V, but won’t be available at launch, we’ll have to wait till October 1st, but hey it’ll totally worth it!

The new Mario Kart arcade version is out in Japan

26 Jul

Mario Kart Arcade GP DX

The new arcade version of Mario Kart, called Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, born after the collaboration between Nintendo and Namco Bandai, is finally out in Japan. Unfortunately we don’t know if this special cabinet will ever see the light of the day outside the rising sun land, but hey…it features a drivable shooting tank! Here’s the brand new launch trailer.

As you can see from the trailer, a part from the already present in previous versions Pac-Man, this new arcade-only chapter will feature a bran new character from the Namco Bandai roaster, Don from Taiko Drum Master. Also, the game has a coop mode, used to combine two player’s kart in a powerful tank!

By the way, here’s how the cabinet looks like.

Namco Bandai is still thinking about a western release…let’s hope.

Polytron and Phil Fish announce FEZ 2

13 Jun

FEZ 2 II phil fish

Yay! The most arrogant and anti-social (and probably genius) indie game designer and dev Phil Fish is back with the sequel for his masterpiece: FEZ 2

The game has been announced during E3 2013’s indie event, Horizon, just today. Unfortunately we still don’t know when it will be released and for which platform (considering the first FEZ was an Xbox 360 exclusive). Actually we don’t even know how the game will look like, as the following teaser trailer is everything we have for now.

D4 is the new game from Hidetaka “Swery 65” Suehiro

12 Jun

D4 swery 65

We’ve already mentioned this game in our huge E3 special article, but we felt like we needed to highlight it more than a mere mention. D4 is the brand new game from Hidetaka Suehiro a.k.a. Swery 65, presented exclusively for Xbox One (also in collaboration with Microsoft Studios) at the Microsoft E3 conference a couple of days ago. Here’s the first announcement trailer.

As you can recall, Swery 65 is the acclaimed creator behind the cult classic Deadly Premonition, and with this new game he really has our attention. The game has been presented as an episodic noir mystery, following the story of a detective with the curious ability to dive back in time, that must use this power to solve his wife’s murder, and then try to prevent it.

As you can see from the above trailer, the game features a full cell shading graphic engine, but we still really see what the game is about.

On a side note, it’s public knowledge that Hidetaka Suehiro has always idolized Goichi Suda (yep, Suda 51 —> Swery 65), but this is the first time the style of a Swery’s game recall a Suda’s creation so clearly. We’ll see if he will meet all our positive expectations.

Also, we don’t think this game has anything in common with the well-known survival horror series D created by Kenji Eno (we miss you so much).

Enjoy the fourth trailer for Killer is Dead (plus some extra boobs)

killer is dead

We are at the edge of a new generation of console and in the middle of a proper brand new old-school console war, but still, we can use our fingers to count the title that really amaze us. So for now we’ll stick to the current gen, where we still have something able to sky-rocket our hype meter.

We are obviously talking about Killer is Dead, mainly because we are in love with its creator, the video games god Goichi Suda.

So in the middle of the post-E3 storm (or shitstorm) we are pleased to show you the latest trailer for the upcoming X360 and Ps3 title from Grasshopper Manufacture. Enjoy!

And why not? Also a new KID TV episode is out, featuring some boobs as usual (including Jessica Nigri‘s). We still don’t know what they’re talking about, but…who really cares?

e3 2013 xbox one ps4 recap wiiu

Wow! That was intense! They’ve been a couple of heavy days if you’re a gamer and you followed all the shit going in Los Angeles for this year’s E3. It’s also a bit confusing if you try to get infos from different sites and sources, so we thought that maybe could be useful writing a bit of recap of all the good and bad things we saw at the most important expo for the game industry.

You already know who were the big protagonist of the event, the two party for the next gen war: Microsoft and SONY. So let’s find out all the things you should know about the Xbox One and the PlayStation4.

MICROSOFT XBOX ONE

microsoft xbox one e3

• Xbox One will be released on November 2013 and it will cost $499 / €499 / £429.

• Xbox One will require to connect to the internet once every 24 hours to perform some kind of check and/or update.

• Xbox One will require a constant connection to the Kinect 2.0 (that will be included with the console).

Microsoft Point will be discontinued. All purchases will be done in your local currency.

• Starting yesterday till the Xbox One release date, every Xbox LIVE gold member will get two free on-demand games per month.

• You’ll be able to buy disc-based games at traditional retailers or online through Xbox Live, on day of release.

Every game needs to be installed into the hard drive of the console in order to be played.

• Xbox One is designed so game publishers can enable you to give your disc-based games to your friends. There are no fees charged as part of these transfers. There are two requirements: you can only give them to people who have been on your friends list for at least 30 days and each game can only be given once.

• Xbox One is designed so game publishers can enable you to trade in your games at retailers.  Microsoft does not charge a platform fee to retailers, publishers, or consumers for enabling transfer of these games. So everything is up to the publishers.

• After signing in and installing, you can play any of your games from any Xbox One because a digital copy of your game is stored on your console and in the cloud.  So, for example, while you are logged in at your friend’s house, you can play your games.

• Up to ten members of your family can log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One.

• Xbox One will be region locked.

EXCLUSIVE GAMES FOR XBOX ONE (just the ones worth of mention)

• Halo

• Titanfall

• Forza Motorsport 5

• Dead Rising 3

• Killer Instinct

• Ryse: Son Of Rome

• D4

• Quantum Break (it will probably released also on PC)

• Crimson Dragon

• Minecraft Xbox One Edition (not really an exclusive)

SONY PLAYSTATION 4

sony playstation4 e3

• PlayStation 4 will be released on Fall 2013 and it will cost $399 / €399 / £349.

• PlayStation 4 will not require constant internet connection.

PlayStation Plus will be required to play game’s online features.

Games don’t need to be installed into the hard drive of the console in order to be played.

PlayStation 4 first party games won’t have any DRM or second-hand selling/buying/trading restriction. Third party publishers are free to do the same, but they can apply whatever business model they prefer, without any pressure from SONY.

• PlayStation 4 will be region free.

EXCLUSIVE GAMES FOR PLAYSTATION 4 (just the ones worth of mention)

• The Order: 1886

• Driveclub

• Killzone: Shadow Fall

• Dark Sorcerer

• inFAMOUS: Second Son

So, as you can see, console-wise PlayStation 4 could has sounded better than Xbox One, but we think, after analyzing every aspect, that they both feature the same stuff. Sure, almost 100 quids less for the PS4 will be a huge plus.

Regarding the specific game exclusives, we are more impressed by the Xbox One roaster, even if things can change from here till the release date of both systems.

By the way, you may be interested also in all the good games that have been announced not as an exclusive, so for both platforms. Here’s a worth to check list:

• Destiny

• Tom Clancy’s The Division

• Dragon Age: Inquisition

• Final Fantasy XV

• Kingdom Hearts III

• Mad Max

• Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

• Mirror’s Edge 2

• Thief

• Watch Dogs

• Wolfestein: The New Order

Obviously there are a lot of announced new games for the next gen, like The Evil Within, but we still don’t know if they will be exclusives or for both platforms.

Ok, now that you know pretty much everything you need to know about the proper next gen, what about Nintendo? Is the Wii U dead already? HELL NO! Nintendo this year decided not to hold a proper conference, but just to stream simultaneously all around the world a pre-recorded Nintendo Direct, we don’t know why, but that 40 minutes were dense of pure Nintendo nerdgasm! In fact they announced pretty much EVERYTHING is in their game portfolio.

Maybe you don’t have time to watch the whole thing, so here’s a quick recap with time-mark to jump among all the worth-watching trailers in the big video:

00:56 Pokémon X and Pokémon Y
04:13 Super Mario 3D World
07:43 Mario Kart 8
17:11 Sonic Lost World
17:40 2013 Wii U Nintendo eShop Releases
19:25 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
23:59 The Wonderful 101
25:58 Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
28:54 Bayonetta 2
31:50 Un-named game from Monolith Soft
34:23 Super Smash Bros.

Ok, we think you’re now ready to go on with your life, as you know everything important from this E3 so far! We also not gonna say to you which party you have to join for this console war, because we’re pretty doubtful even ourselves.
