Platinum games, the creator of Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising, had just announced that they are making a third person combat game based off the Nickelodeon series The Legend of Korra. This will be a downloadable game coming to the PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3 this fall.

Color me excited! A well known studio is working on a beloved series and just might make it good. The games takes place between season 2 and the upcoming season 3. Look for more on this later this week.

Any dedicated gamer will know how long a game has been in development, and there is a good reason for that. It is because people know that good things take time. Most great games have a three, maybe four year development cycle; in order to not only come up with great ideas but make sure they are fully fleshed out.

So after the trailer leaked, Activision saw fit to officially announce Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. This is the first Call of Duty game made completely by Slegdehammer Game and its almost unrecognizable. The game looks like a mix between Call of Duty and all the tech from Elysium. I have not play the Call of Duty series in years because I kind of grew tired of it, but this is too interesting to overlook.

Despite my feeling on the Annualization of games, Activision seems to try to change up the Call of Duty formula enough every year so it seems completely new. Also, with the release of TitanFall, they are facing some stiff competition so the change feels necessary. Also Kevin Spacey, whoo hooo!
