Leave it to Media Molecule to make perfect sense of all the features that seemed useless on the PS4’s controller. Someone at Nintendo should hire some of these guys to do the same for the Wii U’s gamepad.
The quirky and delightful Vita game is getting a sequel on the PS4 and it’s never looked better. Unfortunately that means the Vita is getting nothing and begs the question: What exactly is Sony doing with that system?
Is it a sequel/spinoff to Heavenly Sword? Is that Kai in the trailer? Though Ninja Theory is calling this game an entirely new IP, it sure looks like it. Also, the name HellBlade sure seems like something that connects to the 2007 PS3 cult classic. Nevertheless, the trailer is something to certainly get excited for. Here is to hoping that is does connect to the Heavenly Sword because despite its faults its a world I would love to get back to.
Well, well, well. Score one for Microsoft. Today they announced that the highly anticipated sequel to the Tomb Raider reboot, Rise of the Tomb Raider, is coming exclusively to the Xbox One. Seeing as many thought this would be a multi-platform game coming to both systems this is a big win for the system that has been doing nothing but turning its image around since the reveal.
Here’s the press release from crystal dynamics:
Square Enix is working with Dotnod Entertainment on a new episodic adventure game called Life is Strange . While the studio’s last game, Remember Me, didn’t really leave a lasting impression, storytelling seems to be more their forte. So I wouldn’t count them out.
From what is known the game takes place in fictional Arcadia Bay, Oregon where high school senior Max Caulfield is looking for her missing friend Rachel. Max has somehow gained the ability to turn back time, but it has not been mentioned how that works into gameplay. More will be shown at Gamescon. The game is set to release on PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. Date unknown.
