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 »

Carmageddon popped up on the iOS app store today and for a limited time its being offered for free. Carmageddon originally came out way back in 1997 on PC and while I never played it then its hard to not recommend picking up a game while its free. The game also has an Android version planned soon as well but there is no exact date set for its release.

More Dead or Alive 5 Costume DLC Out Now

More costume DLC for Dead or Alive 5 has surfaced and while these packs are not free like the original set they certainly have a few interesting additions to them. The three new packs are titled the “Kitty Pack”, the “What a Character” pack and the “Special Set” pack.

The “Kitty Pack” has a bunch of Cat costumes for Christie, Helena, Lisa and Tina. The “What a Character” pack has bar maid outfits for Hitomi and Mila, a Bartender outfit for Rig, and a Masquerade outfit for Lisa. Fianlly the “Special Set” pack includes Panda Bear themed outfits for Lei fang and Kasumi, as well as a Fiend costume for Hayabusa and a Black Dress for Lisa.

Each pack is available for 5 bucks each on XBLA and PSN; however, if you plan on getting all three packs you can purchase them as a set for 13 bucks on XBLA. The bundle pricing will be available on PSN as well but you will have to wait until next week to get it.

Something tells me this isn’t the last we will see of DLC costumes for DOA 5. Hopefully there not all as pandering as these packs are though. Read the rest of this entry »

Doom 3 BFG Edition – Launch Trailer

Bethesda has released its final trailer their remastered version of Doom 3 which releases today in the US at a budget price of $29.99. The main draw of the BFG edition of the game is an extra section called “The Lost Mission” which is content that was cut from the original game.

I missed out on Doom 3 back in the day thanks to my PC not being up to snuff but since then I have attempted to play it a few times on PC.  That being said I probably wont get this as I refuse to buy a game more than once, unless its name is Final Fantasy 4 of which I have 5 copies of…. for some reason.

Lionhead hit with Layoffs

It’s always sad to be reporting on the loss of work and in this case it is no exception to that rule as Microsoft has stated that they have laid off just under “ten percent of staff” at Lionhead Studios. This follows the release of the studio’s latest game Fable: The Journey and while it is common for studio’s to downsize after a release it is still a shame to see people out of work.

I have been a big fan of Lionhead since the original Black and White on PC so this news definitely saddens me. I hope things work out of the people affected by these layoffs.

Devil May Cry – NYCC Trailer

Capcom recently showed off a new trailer for the upcoming reboot of Devil May Cry at this years New York City Comicon. The trailer certainly feels like the game is sticking to its roots with its massive use of Death Metal in the trailer itself.

In other DMC related news Capcom has also announced that they will be releasing a Demo of the game prior to its release; however, currently the demo is only confirmed to be coming to consoles.

I have to say that I certainly am looking forward to this reboot of Devil May Cry. Sure there are a bunch of fans up in arms about the new Dante redesign but I welcome the change. That and I am a huge fan of Ninja Theory. Read the rest of this entry »
