I’m in a very excited mood for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and have just realised I have little on it on this site. This absolutely needs to change. So here are some screenshots of this game that has been my most anticipated title since Platinum Games were announced to be developing it. I just wish it’d stop getting delayed!
We’re a bit behind on this, but I wanted to share it anyway. The latest Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer reveals just how the combat is played. Take a look.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is developed by Platinum Games and Kojima Productions, to be published by Konami. The game is an over-the-top action game spinoff of the Metal Gear franchise, and is an attempt to do something different but set in the same universe; the title delivers an experience with the character Raiden that is accurate to his portrayal in Metal Gear Solid 4. It also looks absolutely fantastic.
Just today SEGA launched the latest downloadable content release for Total War: Shogun 2. The DLC pack, titled ‘Saints and Heroes’, delivers nine new units – each whom excels in their own field. For those looking to get an extra advantage in the game, or just want to be able to gather more unit types, this pack can be purchased on Steam. Screenshots after the jump.
Atlus have released a brand new trailer for their upcoming fighting game – Persona 4: Arena. The game exists within continuity, making it a very strange move by Atlus.
Teddie, a character from Persona 4, has gone missing. In order to find him, the cast of Persona 4 watch the Midnight Channel in order to, hopefully, find him once again. This leads to discovering him announcing a fighting tournament in which the cast all enter in order to reunite with him. The game also features characters from Persona 3. Persona 4: Arena is expected to launch on both PlayStation 3 an Xbox 360 during the Fall of this year, with Europe yet to even get a release date. Japan will be receiving this game on the 26th of this month.
It honestly does look fun. I don’t expect any incredibly serious fighting tournaments with the game, but I reckon I’ll pick this one up all the same. After all, games are about fun aren’t they?
Just released this weekend, Konami have set out their Comic-Con trailer for the action/mecha franchise’s HD remake – Zone of the Enders HD Collection. The trailer shows off the neat visuals, but also show off more of what the game is actually like. It’s enough to get anyone excited.
Zone of the Enders HD Collection contains both Zone of the Enders titles in 720p at 60 FPS (frames per second). They’ve been putting a lot of effort and time into this port, and it shows. The game has yet to receive an official release date, but is due to launch sometime this Summer. Given that we’re in July, that doesn’t leave a lot of time left! I’ve got this collection pre-ordered. Do you?
Being a big fan of wrestling since a young age, I always get excited when news comes out regarding one of the new games. WWE 13 seems to be no exception, between the reworks of the Predator Technology™ to the Collector’s Edition content, my inner child has a lot to look forward to with this upcoming title.
Well, the first feature that caught my eye was the Collector’s Edition Content.
As well as the game, you receive the following goodies.
- Exclusive foil packaging featuring embossed Stone Cold Steve Austin skull.
- Exclusive collectible art card personally autographed by Stone Cold Steve Austin.
- Exclusive Stone Cold Steve Austin in-game attire: red skull t-shirt (circa 2001).
- Exclusive Stone Cold Steve Austin in-game ATV ring entrance (pictured).
- “Stone Cold Steve Austin: The Bottom Line on the Most Popular Superstar of All Time” (DVD) (available to 360 and PS3 owners).
- Access to WWE Hall of Famer and WWE ’13 global pre-order offer Mike Tyson playable character.
Now, I would have been happy with the in-game content, but to include the DVD that retails for £11.99 too is such a nice bonus. Especially when the Collector’s Edition would normally only have a £2-3 increase in cost.
As predicted every year, they will try their hardest to beat the previous year’s game. So far they have introduced the Predator Technology™ 2.0, which features new animations, transitions and modified controls that will return to deliver intelligent, fluid and engaging WWE action, resulting in a smoother gameplay experience than its predecessors. Also returning are the popular WWE Universe and Career-style story mode which have now been improved to dynamically introduce matches, make alliances, rivalries and the unpredictable moments all from each decision the player makes, on the road to becoming the WWE champion.
Another new feature that I, personally, am very excited about, is the “OMG! Moments”.
OMG! Moments has a wide range of features, including: ring breaks, barricade breaks, announcer table breaks, and more interestingly, reversing mid-air finishers.
There are even more new features, including the all-new “Creation Suite”, which will allow players to finally be able to fully customize Superstars, entrances, arenas, finishing moves, storylines, highlight reels and more, as well as share them online and download the communities creations.
So there you have it, all the information so far released, and now all here for your reading pleasure. One thing is for sure, this winter is definitely going to have some serious Attitude. The title is due for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 30th this year in the US, or November 2nd anywhere else where this will be hitting the shelves.
In keeping up with the announcements for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Capcom have announced that the old JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure game released in the arcades back in 1998 will be getting a full fledged HD remake. The game, released in the west on the original PlayStation and the Dreamcast in 2000, is based on the popular Japanese graphic novel series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, as you’ll know if you keep up on any news we post. Screenshots and details after the jump.
The game is based upon the third part of the franchise, Stardust Crusade. In Stardust Crusade, various individuals obtain a spiritual power called a ‘Stand’. One such individual is Jotaro Kujo, the youngest in the line of the Joestars and grandson of the protagonist of part two, Joseph Jostar. The story follows Jotaro as he and his companions travel half the globe to battle the vampire Dio who has been locked in combat with the Joestar family for one hundred years.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. will feature a brand new multiplayer lobby where players can compete with up to eight other players. Winner plays on as each loser is replaced with someone else in the lobby. Furthermore, replays can be saved allowing players to re-live or share their best moments, whilst learning from the very best players. Fans of Super Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will also recognise the matchmaking system where the player may select opponents based on a multitude of factors including location and connection speed.
The game is set to launch from the PlayStation Network on August 21st for $19.99, and Xbox LIVE Arcade on August 22nd for 1600 Microsoft Points. You can view the screenshots below, and don’t worry if you don’t like the new appearance as Capcom have promised that you will be able to play in an Arcade SD Mode to enjoy the old look.
Honestly, the game seems a bit expensive for an Arcade game, but I can’t help but feel excited that I can finally get my hands on this game once more. I really like the sounds of the lobby as well. It brings us closer to having the offline multiplayer experience online.
