  • The Fallout Anthology Is Out Today fallout anthologyYou’ll have to wait a little longer for Fallout 4, but for those who are looking for an easy (and stylish) way to catch up, the product released today should fit the bill very well.
    As discussed earlier when it was announced at QuakeCon, the Fallout Anthology is a collection of every Fallout game released to date for PC — Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition, and Fallout: New Vegas – Ultimate Edition. (I sure hope you’ve played at least half of those because there’s no way you can catch up on every game THAT ...
  • Why Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Is Called 2.8 kingdom heartsThe next release in the Kingdom Hearts series will not be #3 yet — it’ll be another filler compilation of previous titles, most of them from handhelds. And in typical fashion, it’ll be sold with a weird subtitle. Why is the number 2.8? Was there a method by which they arrived at that specific figure, or was it random?
    Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura spoke with Japan’s Weekly Famitsu magazine (translated by NovaCrystallis) about the series and the meaning behind the number. Nomura revealed that since all the games from the previous compilation (called Kingdom Hearts 2.5) were set before Dream ...
  • Where Dogmeat Comes From Yesterday Bethesda Games, developers of the most anticipated game of the year (Fallout 4) released a new video showing us the inspiration for Dogmeat, the canine companion you can keep by your side throughout the game. Dogmeat was modeled after a German Shepherd owned by Joel Burgess, who works for the company.
    In this one-minute video you can see the exact moments where the dog (whose name is River) provided the behavior that the programmers would then capture and try to mimic. River looks like a great dog, but Dogmeat will be even better: you can’t hurt it, and neither can ...
  • Shenmue 3 Introduces “Slacker Backer” Campaign shenmue 3The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter, which launched during E3 and lasted about three months, earned Yu Suzuki and his development team about half their stretch goals, which will allow them to expand certain areas of the game — but not all of them. Suzuki was hoping for ten million, and he got a little over six million.
    Since then, he says he’s heard from many people who would have contributed to the Kickstarter campaign, yet “slacked off” and didn’t get to it until it was too late. In that spirit, he’s launched a second campaign, the “Slacker Backer” campaign, to give these ...
  • TGS: Persona 5 Delayed Into Summer 2016 persona 5Those hoping for a solid release date for Persona 5 to come out of TGS had their wish granted by a monkey paw today: we know when it’s coming out now, but it’s much later than anticipated. The game has been pushed back to the summer of 2016.
    Worse yet, Atlus wasn’t specific as to how this delay would affect the localization process; they didn’t say if it would take even longer for America or Europe to receive Persona 5. If there is an additional delay for us, it would make Persona 5 one of the last games for the PS3 ...
  • TGS 2015 Brings New Final Fantasy XV Trailer We were wondering where this was. Square-Enix has finally put out their Tokyo Game Show Final Fantasy XV Trailer, entitled “Dawn 2.0.”

    Unlike the previous trailers, which have focused on Noctis driving around with his bros, this one finally sheds some light on his relationship with his love interest, Luna. Square says, “This is an updated trailer that depicts protagonists Noctis and Luna as they reflect on the tragic events of their respective pasts, which set the stage for the narrative of Final Fantasy XV. Players will catch a glimpse of the fateful duo’s internal strife as Luna struggles against the ...
  • TGS Brings New Details On Ace Attorney 6 ace attorney 6The sixth game in the Ace Attorney series was announced a couple months ago, and the press got to experience it firsthand today via a demo available at Tokyo Game Show.
    There’s good news — that “Apollo Justice” joker is nowhere to be seen in this demo. Instead you’re playing as good ol’ Phoenix again, and this time, he appears to be in Maya’s country of origin: Kurain. Initially there on a visit, Phoenix’s child tour guide winds up accused of theft and murder, and only Phoenix can keep him out of prison.

    Phoenix is the only one because nobody else in ...

  • We Now Know How The Last Guardian Will Appear At TGS the last guardianYes, I said “how,” not “where,” because the cryptic tweet that hinted at The Last Guardian’s appearance was a bit misleading. The Last Guardian, the game, may not have any new footage at Tokyo Game Show. But the Last Guardian itself will be in attendance. (Assuming the creature is the Last Guardian and not the boy.)
    Some new tweets went out from genDesign confirming the plans. genDesign is the name of the studio making the game. They revealed a special theater will be set up to screen The Last Guardian and outside, Trico, the griffin-thing shown in The Last Guardian’s game ...
