Microsoft has revealed that the Xbox One will be getting an exclusive new entry from the classic action series Raiden that debuted in arcades in the 90’s. This game will simply be called Raiden.
The release of this game also marks the 25th anniversary of the franchise, with this being the sixth game in the main series for the franchise.
I like hearing when classic arcade games are still being made in the midst of the much more complex games being made today. It’s always fun to go back to a simple arcade game where pure gameplay was the sole focus.
Gamers will be getting another taste of the Far Cry series at the end of this year with Far Cry 4, which had a pretty dang impressive showing at this year’s E3. Thanks to a gameplay video released by PlayStation Access, we have now been given another glimpse of how insane this game is shaping up to be.
In the video, we get a semi-gameplay commentary about a scenario involving the protagonist and an elephant. Essentially, you are able to mount an elephant and go stomping through the village as you either pick off enemies from the top of your own personal Dumbo or let Dumbo stomp, lift and throw the baddies on its own. Hell yes.
A continuation of the famed Mortal Kombat franchise was revealed recently in a game called Mortal Kobat X, and now developer NeverRealm Studios has gone and revealed the official box art for next year’s fighting game.
Check out the box art below.
The studio also said the following in regards to what Mortal Kombat X is all about:
“Mortal Kombat X launches players into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy. For the first time, Mortal Kombat X gives players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. Players step into an original story showcasing some of the game’s most prolific characters including Scorpion and Sub-Zero, while introducing new challengers that represent the forces of good and evil and tie the tale together.”
I think this box art is pretty killer (no pun intended). Scorpion is easily one of the most beloved Mortal Kombat characters around, so adorning the cover of the 10th installment of the series with a series favorite is a no-brainer. I think it would be cool if there was an alternate one featuring Sub-Zero, but what can you do?
Rocksteady has gone and done the unthinkable, I’m afraid. At a recent hands-on event for the game they held which showed off the game’s batmobile they broke the news that the game would not meet its October 14th release date. In fact, it won’t be coming in 2014 at all.
No specific reason for the delay of the game was released, though it being the final chapter of the critically-acclaimed series has me thinking they just want this thing as good as it can possibly be. The month of October is already pretty crowded, anyway; with Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Driveclub, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Evolve and The Evil Within all slated to release that month. Holy crap.
The Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive is shaping up to be one of the most highly-anticipated games of the year, as just about every new piece of information that comes out makes it look even better.
Now, over on Sunset TV, more information has been revealed about the game. Host Brandon Winfrey shows off some of the game’s crazy weapons, such as High Fidelity and TNTeddy. Check out the video below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04uKME1dn4U’%5D
Although I’ve seen these weapons before, hearing about the little nuances of the weapons is really great. I love that High Fidelity will have a random ricochet effect, which will hopefully result in some hilarious knock outs. Insomniac Games seems to be making all the right moves with this game.
The Xbox One is bringing Snap Skype to the fray, thanks to the latest update that was released yesterday. Now gamers can use skype while they are playing a game.
This was a feature that people were hoping for from the beginning, as this means that you are able to talk and see your friends while playing with them.
This should make the whole multiplayer experience that much more fun, as actually being able to see someone’s reaction while destroying them in a match is priceless. The fact that this feature wasn’t available from the get go makes me scratch the dome, but I guess ol’ Microsoft have never been a company that is known for punctuality.
