  • E3 2016: First Big Look At Mass Effect Andromeda mass effect andromedaElectronic Arts showed off a two-minute video showcasing the progress of their Mass Effect Trilogy follow-up, Mass Effect Andromeda, today during their EA Play conference.
    Unfortunately Mass Effect Andromeda is still too far away to attach a release date (2017 is the vague promise), but we got a great look at the various worlds that await players by then, as well as some half-second peeks at the creative process behind the game.
    As BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn explained, “you are the alien” in the Andromeda galaxy — while past Mass Effect games have taken place in well-colonized areas where the various ...
  • New Let’s Play Show Total War: Warhammer DLC Final Battle Despite beliefs to the contrary, video game developers do post official Let’s Plays of their titles. Often with a specific purpose or goal. Whether it be to highlight a specific story element, show off gameplay, or just impress, they do do them.
    For SEGA and Creative Assembly, and their title Total War: Warhammer, they decided to release a Let’s Play showing off one of the final battles in the Chaos Warriors DLC. This is deep into the game, and potentially spoilerish, so you have been warned.
    “Archaeon may be the Everchosen, but to the Chaos God Tzeentch – Changer of the Ways – nothing ...
  • Square-Enix’s 2016 E3 Schedule squareJust like Nintendo, Square-Enix will be running a livestream presentation of its games throughout the E3 event. I’ll tell you ahead of time that there is no Kingdom Hearts 3 listed here — every game is one that’s close to completion (which makes sense….you don’t want an unfinished game freezing up due to a bug in front of everyone, which has happened). You WILL get to see live plays of Final Fantasy XV, Star Ocean 5, Dragon Quest Builders, World of Final Fantasy, I Am Setsuna and more.
    To watch the livestream during E3, head to Square’s YouTube or Twitch channels..
    Monday, ...
  • Fallout 4 Was Briefly Free On Xbox Yesterday fallout 4To everyone reading this who was super-busy yesterday and had no time to turn on their XBox One consoles and unwind….yeah, this was the ONE DAY. Figures, doesn’t it?
    Due to some kind of error, the price of Fallout 4’s digital version on the XBox Store was reduced to $0.00, and so was all the DLC content and the Season Pass. While this was in effect, Kotaku reported they were able to get the purchase through with no issues.
    Shortly after the media started reporting on it, though, Microsoft noticed and temporarily removed all Fallout 4 items from the marketplace. Representative Larry ...
  • Witcher 3’s Gwent Will Soon Be Sold Separately gwentWithin The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you can play a card game known as Gwent. It looks like soon the $60 barrier to this game will be removed — Gwent is about to become its own entity.
    You might remember that CD Projekt Red spoke of a side project they were working on. Back in March they mentioned “a new type of video game format previously unexplored by the studio” that would come out in 2016. Red has not announced the Gwent game themselves, but a recent filing with the European Union Intellection Property Office has revealed the logo and a ...
  • Watch The New E3 Trailer For Kingdom Hearts 2.8 kingdom hearts 2.8Kingdom Hearts 3 is the one everybody’s waiting for, but it won’t arrive for a while yet. This filler game will have to suffice for now: Kingdom Hearts 2.8 is a remaster of the 3DS’s Dream Drop Distance as well as Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, containing about an hour’s worth of new content.
    On the bright side, we may be getting this trailer before E3 because E3 itself could be packed with new Kingdom Hearts 3 information! We’ll let you know in a few days if anything turns up. Kingdom Hearts 2.8 comes out for Playstation 4 this December.

  • Story Of Seasons Sequel Coming Here In 2017 story of seasonsA few days ago we reported Natsume’s announcement of a new Harvest Moon game for 3DS. We also pointed out that Natsume now develops its Harvest Moon games in-house, where previously they had them made by a third-party studio called Marvelous. Marvelous, in fact, still makes Harvest Moon games to this day…they just go by a different name now.
    They’re called “Story of Seasons” these days, but contain the same gameplay and graphics, since no one owns the singular concept of a farming game. And now XSeed Games has announced they will be publishing the second Story of Seasons game (also ...
  • E3 2016: World Of Final Fantasy Trailer world of final fantasySome video game companies are starting to release their E3 trailers ahead of schedule, like so. Today Square released their new trailer for World of Final Fantasy. The two, normal-proportioned characters are twins Reynn and Lann, who traverse the world of Grymoire while meeting many big-headed representations of classic Final Fantasy characters. They can even turn into chibi people themselves, as the trailer shows, though for what purpose no one knows yet. You’ll also be able to capture any of the iconic FF monsters you encounter and train them on your own. Finally, a Malboro on YOUR side!
    Hopefully they’ll work ...
