Deadpool Gameplay Video is Part Awesome, Part Hilarious

I am just going to say that at one point in this gameplay video Deadpool pulls a bouncy house out of thin air for no other reason than jumping on it.

The gameplay for the new Deadpool game looks like you basic hack and slash fun, but it is Deadpool 4th wall breaking comedy that really makes the game stand out. Between Deadpool’s inner monologue with multiple personalities and mocking classic video game tropes that we have come to accept, this game might just be worth it just to hear Deadpool speak. Also, “Laws of physics be damned”.

Deadpool arrives tomorrow, June 25, for PS3 and Xbox.

Final Fantasy XV Details and Character Info

4995FFXV_Online-610x861

Square Enix has revealed details on the re-dubbed Final Fantasy XV. It’s funny how changing the name of the game and putting it on next gen system somehow completely rejuvenates interest in this series. Nevertheless, the concept of Final Fantasy XV has me looking forward to it more than any of the Final Fantasy games on the PS3 or Xbox 360. Whether the game is good or not remains to be seen until the game comes out next year.  Most of the information involves the plot and descriptions of the characters who will accompany Prince Noctis on his journey. Here are the synopsis from Square Enix:

The only crystal left to the world lies in the Kingdom of Lucis. Upon striking a peace with the garrison state of Niflheim, Lucis rejoices in having at last brought the cold war to a close. Their celebrations, however, are premature. Under the guise of amity, Niflheim dispels the anti-armament runewall and launches a full-scale invasion of the kingdom. The peaceful lives Crown Prince Noctis and his entourage once knew are consumed by the flames of war as they struggle to mount a resistance.

Noctis Lucis Caelum: A childhood affliction endowed Noctis, heir apparent to the throne of Lucis, with the mystical power to see a heavenly light, through which he could sense others’ deaths. Noctis rejects rigid royal conventions and acts as somewhat of a renegade, much to the dismay of those who tend to him. Yet while “Noct” may act brash at times, he does so in defense of those loyal to him.

Gladiolus Amicitia: As lord of the noble House Amicitia, Gladiolus continues a line sworn to protect the crown. “Gladio” shares a friendship with Noctis that transcends birth and title, and his loyalty to his liege is born not of duty, but of brotherhood.

Ignis Scientia: Ever the unwavering voice of reason, Ignis was weaned on shrewd logic and a classical education from boyhood so that he might one day counsel the would-be king, Noctis. He applies the deep mutual understanding and trust they have built over time to help smooth over Noctis’s brusqueness with others.

Prompto Argentum: The puckish playboy Prompto befriended Noctis in his school days. He wears a chip on his shoulder as an outsider to the royal circle, but remains eager to do all he can for the cause.

Cor Leonis: A living legend of Lucian lore, Lord Commander Cor Leonis’s devotion to the art of war is surpassed only by that to his king. Little love is lost between the ill-starred stalwart and Noctis’s retinue, yet honor binds him to keep watch over the group all the same.

Final Fantasy XV is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2014.

TitanFall Developer Commentary

1370897239797

Words cannot describe how excited I am for TitanFall. There has not been a game this interesting and exciting in a long time. Below is a video of the folks at Respawn Entertainment discussing their vision for TitanFall and you can hear the passion in their voices. Looks like this game was worth all the drama the former developers of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchise went through when leaving Activision was worth it.

TitanFall is expected sometime early 2014.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Gameplay Demo

I have been worn out with the Assassin’s Creed series because of the fact that it comes out yearly. However, there is no denying that the series does improve with each and every installment. The newest game, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, seems to be the most interesting Assassin’s game in a long time.

You play as Edward Kenway, Grandfather of Assassin’s Creed 3’s Conner Kenway. Out of all the other Assassins in the series’ past, Edward is already the most likable in my book. He drinks, he gambles, he flirts and completely embodies the Pirate persona. In the developer video, the gameplay seems to be a bit of the same with the exception of different environment’s to sneak around and upgraded Naval combat.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag releases November 1.

Tiny Tina is Your Game Master …. BEWARE!

Borderlands 2 was one of my favorite games of 2012. While I missed out on all of the Borderlands 2 DLC that has come out since the games release, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon’s Keep might bring me back in. The ridiculousness of this campaign is just too good to pass up.

Apparently, Brick, Lilith and Mordecai are playing a board game with Tina as the Game Master. As you play, it seems that Tina can change anything see wants as the game goes along. New enemies, hilarious story, a bazillion weapon and Tiny Tina, what more could you want.

Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon’s Keep arrives June 25 for $10 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Man of Steel Skin and Gerenal Zod Trailer for Injustice

Netherrealm has released its official trailer for General Zod in Injustice. Polygon also announces that there will be a Man of Steel skin coming for Superman. I will just say this, for a man as powerful as Superman, it seems like it is cheating for General Zod to be able to use weapons and have access to the Phantom Zone. However, I love that every one of Zod’s moves carries a bit of arrogance as he fights.

The Man of Steel Skin will cost $2.99 and General Zod will be available in early July.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Announced

Also, as you can see above, the best part is you can play as Super Saiyan God Goku.

With the removal of all the polices Microsoft had planned for the Xbox One, it goes to show that as gamers our voice matters and this day is a win for consumer ownership.

With Microsoft getting rid of all the restrictions they had in store for the Xbox One, this will surely put them back in a competitive position by the time the system launches. However, it should be noted that the Xbox One will still cost $500 and there will be a hefty day one patch in order make all these changes possible. There is a lot of information to take into account from this announcement and here the breakdown of everything Microsoft has officially said:
