Resident Evil 6 Update Coming This December

A while ago Capcom faced a bit of controversy over on-disc DLC found in Resident Evil 6.  Since then it has been revealed that while there was DLC on the disc, Capcom would be offering it  as a free update, rather than expecting people to pay for it..

The update will be available mid-December and will come with the “No Hope” difficulty setting and some advance camera control options. The update will also allow players to play the Ada Wong campaign right away, which was previously locked until you finish the games main three campaigns first.

Trailer: Persona 4 Golden

Atlus has released the first English trailer for the upcoming re-release of Persona 4 on the PlayStation Vita. The game was originally released in the North America on the PlayStation 2 in 2008 but the port will have a few extra’s added on to it. The PSVita version will feature re-mastered visuals, new Persona’s, a new Opening Animation, and a new online dungeon rescue feature. The game is due out on November 20th of this year in North America.

Seeing that they are adding a bunch of new stuff and having the game available on the go really make me regret purchasing it for full price at Fan Expo back in 2010.  Especially considering that I never even opened it up to play it. Oh well, I suppose I can rectify that once this portable version comes out. Read the rest of this entry »

Zynga Hit with Layoffs

It seems more and more studios are being hit with layoffs these days and Zynga is no exception today as reports are saying that the Zynga’s Boston studio has been closed leaving over 100 people out of work. Zynga reportedly is also making cuts at both its Austin and Chicago Studio’s as well. No official statement from Zynga has been released as of yet; however, an employee of the company has stated that ‘The Ville’ and ‘Zynga Bingo’ have both had their teams cut.

Now I will be the first to say that I find Zynga’s games both boring and annoying as hell since they end up spamming my Facebook news feed but hearing that people are out of work is never a thing to celebrate.

Apple Announces iPad 4th Gen and iPad Mini

Apple has announced not one buy two new iPad models today in San Jose during their press event today. The first iPad announcement was the 4th Generation iPad which features a new A6X chip that has double the CPU and GPU performance, the new Lightning Dock connector, and new accessory cables that support SD storage; however, the screen resolution and price for the 4th gen iPad will remain the same.

The second iPad announcement was the new 7.9 inch iPad Mini which has very similar specs to the iPad 2. The iPad mini has a duel core A5 Chip, a 5 mega pixel iSight camera, an HD front-facing camera and runs at a resolution of 1024×768. The iPad Mini also uses the new dock connector and will start at $330 for a 16 GIG WiFi only version. There is also the option to get a LTE radio on the device for an extra cost of $130.

Another interesting note is that the 3rd generation iPad (which is less than 6 months old) will no longer be sold as it has been replaced by the 4th generation model; however, they will still be selling the iPad 2.

I’m honestly baffled by all of this.  Sure the iPad mini was something that most expected but a 4th generation iPad this early? It seems to me like they are getting dangerously close to milking their customer base a little too much.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale: Live Action Trailer

I have to say I was surprised by how much I like this trailer.  Sure it starts out making you think its going to be all dark and gritty but it ends up pulling through with a few laughs at the end.  That being said, if they are planning on using this as the games TV spot I have to say that they didn’t quite hit the mark of awesomeness that the original Smash Bros. commercial had.

Trailer: Iron Man 3

Marvel has finally released its first trailer for the upcoming Iron Man 3.  The trailer shows off a bit of Ben Kinglsey as the Mandarin. It also shows some interesting uses of the Iron Patriot like armor, which leads me to believe that there may be more villains in this movie than just the Mandarin.

That being said, It’s very unlikely that the Iron Patriot armor will be piloted by Norman Osborn like in the comics though, and that’s if it even is the Iron Patriot armor to begin with. Still though, I look forward to finding it out next April. Read the rest of this entry »

BioShock Infinite – Beast of America Trailer

The latest trailer for BioShock Infinite sure has a lot of things going for it. The trailer shows off all new gamplay featuring the use of the games Skyhook and Combat systems. They  also shows off a few details of their planned collectors editions of the game.

Stuff like this makes it hard for me to wait for the games intended release date of February 26th of next year.  Especially when it was originally going to be out last week on the 16th.  Oh well, I just hope it ends up being worth the wait. Read the rest of this entry »

Team Meat Announces Mew-Genics

Team Meat the developer behind Super Meat Boy has announced via its blog that the next game they will be releasing will be called Mew-Genics.  The game is said to be “randomly generated, strange and involve cats”. The game hasn’t been announced for any platforms yet but Team Meat has stated that they plan on announcing platforms for the title soon.

I was a very large fan of both Super Meat boy and Edmund’s solo title The Binding of Isaac so I would say worth keeping an eye on this one. Though considering the ton of most of the creative teams games I fear Cat lovers may end up being slightly…. disturbed.

Halo 4 – ‘Scanned’ Trailer

The latest trailer for Halo 4 does actually surprised me as the trailer actually gives us a look at what Master Chief looks like under the helmet, or at least what he did look like at one point anyways.  The rest of the trailer shows off some impressive CG of the Chief fighting the games new antagonists.

The trailer has certainly peaked my interest in the title.  Even if I wasn’t a very big fan of the main trilogy, I did very much enjoy both ODST and Reach.  Read the rest of this entry »
