Drakengard 3 Coming To North America Next Year

By Joshua Cuplin, October 10, 2013 2

The PlayStation 2 had its fair share of exciting RPGs that many hold dear. Since then we’ve seen a major decline in the Japanese RPG genre and the successful rise of western RPGs. Square-Enix was one of the major companies that provided us with some of the games we loved the most and it would appear that they’re trying to bring back a series we haven’t seen in over a decade.

With the PlayStation 4 nearing its release, there are still many questions that people have about the system and what is to be expected of it at launch. Since their conference earlier this year, Sony has made a massive push to detail and provide us with answers to many of our questions. Some of these answers are from stage shows and press events, while others come straight from some of Sony’s major heads over social media services.

By Joshua Cuplin, October 8, 2013 0

I’m sure there are many of you that recognize video games as an art form. Over the years there has been a massive debate about this topic and it has been met with much criticism. Two games that are often brought up in these discussions are Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Both were released on the PlayStation 2 and have been received extremely well, while often being praised for their visual style. In recent years, we’ve heard details on Team Ico’s most recent project The Last Guardian, but there has yet to be any real information on its release. That being said, the team decided to tide us over by remastering those classics for the PlayStation 3. Read More

Bioshock Infinite was released earlier this year and I had one of the most thrilling rides I could have asked for from the series. Since its release, many of us have been patiently waiting for our next chance to return to the title and dive deeper into Booker and Elizabeth’s relationship and experiences. Ken Levine is the writer behind the series and he’s been promising news about the coming downloadable content for some time, promising us that it will release before the end of the year. This past weekend, Irrational released a teaser video for the story based DLC Burial At Sea, and although it didn’t offer much information of what to truly expect from the DLC, it did set a tone for it all. This week we were given more information in the form of the first episode’s achievements and trophies. Spoilers ahead! Read More

Injustice Ultimate Edition Coming Soon

By Joshua Cuplin, October 8, 2013 2

I’m no stranger to the Mortal Kombat series and the creators behind it. Growing up during the series prime allowed me to experience not only its best and worst, but Midway’s finest as well. That being said, Midway has been no more for some time now and Warner Bros has picked up some of its finest with NetherRealm Studios. The newest creation to come from NetherRealm was Injustice: Gods Among Us, a brawler like Mortal Kombat that was set within an alternate DC Universe. The game was received well and had its own slew of characters released over time, but what’s next for this popular fighting game? Read More

The developers behind Amnesia: the Dark Descent have been working on a new game and have slowly been teasing us with what its about.

Along with the video, there was a description that gave some insight about the technology involved in the video. This week they’ve released another video to chill us to the bone. Read More

By Joshua Cuplin, October 2, 2013 3

Survival Horror is a genre that had seen quite the decline in recent years on the retail market, but indie developers have been hard at work at making sure every person’s nightmares are riddled with their creations. Frictional Games is the team behind Amnesia: the Dark Descent and publisher of the sequel, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, and it would appear that they’ve been hard at work on their next project. Since last Saturday, there have been cryptic messages scattered throughout the site they’ve launched for their new game. Today we’ve finally had the chance to get our first solid piece of information about the game in the form of a cryptic video.

Guerilla Games New IP Is Far From Killzone

By Joshua Cuplin, October 2, 2013 0

I have been a major fan of the Killzone series since the game first launched on the PlayStation 2, so to hear the Guerrilla Games is working on a new IP, it draws nothing but excitement from me. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, the lead designer on Killzone: Shadow Fall explained that the team was looking to branch out and has already begun work on doing so. Guerrilla is no stranger to starting new projects before they finish something else and this brings me to question how long they’ve been working on this project. Lets take a look at the interview below. Read More
