Get to know Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown at Gamescom

Gamescom is kicking off, and right away a new announcement's hitting me like a QAAM locked onto my heart. That's right, I'm talking about the next Ace Combat game, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, and it's full of the loveliest nonsense that I sorely missed.

Bandai Namco's new trailer, visible below, packs in the philosophizing, earnest questions, and the kind of sci-fi geopolitical ridiculousness that's enough to give Metal Gear and Gundam fans the warm jollies.

Lucky Europeans will be able to check out the game, and some of its bespoke PlayStation VR features on the show floor, as well. It's going to be a long wait until 2018.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3's prequel DLC misses out on the 2.5 moniker

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3's prequel DLC misses out on the 2.5 moniker

I'm not sure if the internet even remembers that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 actually released this year, but discussions on the game were usually limited to its obscene loading times. Whether or not that has gotten fixed isn't on the cards for today, because we have far more pressing things to talk about! Mainly, how the hell did we transition from Ghost Warrior 2 to 3? Why not have some DLC to explain that gap?!

Free for season pass owners (which was offered free with pre-orders), "The Sabotage" stars the brother of the main character from 3 and features his battle against the rise of the 23 Society. It will feature a brand new map with new weapons, vehicles and missions. Hooray!

(Update) Here are a few places you can pre-order the SNES Classic

(Update) Here are a few places you can pre-order the SNES Classic

[Update: Here are some direct links to places that have put up their first round of pre-orders. Several outlets have sold out of their initial allotment, classic Nintendo! You can save the bookmarks and try again as more stock comes in. Call your GameStop as well, as some are doing in-store pre-orders today and still have units left. Good luck!]

Nintendo has done it again. They announced a piece of hardware that broke the internet -- a follow-up for the NES Mini -- the SNES Mini.

But this time a lot of prospective buyers are a little more fanatical about the whole affair thanks to the reveal that Star Fox 2, a game that's never been released in an official capacity, will be loaded on it. That, and the lineup in general is far more fierce than its NES predecessor -- we're talking multiple "all time greats" here.

 Squirting commences in September with Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash

Prepare for bikinis, beaches and blazing hot sunshine this Autumn as Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash will be landing on the PS4, in Europe and Australia, September 22.The arena shooter sees the endless cast of the Senran Kagura series battle it out in a host of super-subtle water fights, taking time out to indulge in mini-games that have all the tasteful nuance of a sledgehammer to the nose-bridge.

There are a host of bonuses available for pre-order, for both digital and physical versions, including, costumes, weapons and soundtracks. There's also a "Girls of Paradise" limited edition release, containing all DLC bonuses, alongside a Blu-Ray of the series' introduction sequences and an art book. Jesting aside, it's actually a pretty good set for the die-hard fan.

Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, will be made available in Europe and Australia, digitally and in stores, September 22nd. The "Girls of Paradise" set can be pre-ordered directly at the Marvelous Games store, for £60.

Super Saiyan Goku statue highlights Dragon Ball FighterZ's CollectorZ Edition

about X hours ago from

Man, if I pre-ordered every game I would have quite a collection of statues. This Goku diorama would be one of my favorites though, if I had the money and space for them all. 

Standing at 18cm, Super Saiyan Goku loads himself inside a collectors box with a colorful steelbook case and three art boards for the Dragon Ball FighterZ CollectorZ Edition. One of three art boards features Androids 17 and 18, but the other two appear to be mystery cards potentially different in each case? The tweet below mentions the CollecterZ Edition is for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so in all likelihood PC users are out of luck.

Join in the fun with ARMS Global Testpunch this weekend

For anyone who is yet to experience the colourful, fun and frantic ARMS experience, you will have an opportunity to do so, free of charge, this coming weekend.Nintendo have announced that they are holding another Global Test Punch, which will allow all Switch owners to jump into battle with the long-limbed brawlers for some ridiculous long-range mayhem.

The Testpunch runs from 8am PT on Friday August 25 until 2pm PT on Sunday August 27th. Switch owners need only download the ARMS Testpunch software from the Nintendo eShop and then you'll be good to jump into the game's multiplayer battles once the session is live.

Have fun! Remember to restrict your Testpunching to the digital world, and not to exercise it at weddings, hospitals, or family gatherings.

New pirate ship level and Bubble Blaster weapon coming free to Splatoon 2

about X hours ago from

At Gamescom 2017, Nintendo has announced free new content for Splatoon 2 including the Bubble Blaster weapon, a pirate ship-themed level called "Manta Maria," and a new Salmon Run level titled "Lost Outpost."

Pirates are the best. I like to pretend I have pirate blood in me since I'm from south Florida where there is at least some pirate history, not far from the Caribbean. Now if I can save up to buy a Switch and Splatoon 2 I can pretend to be a pirate squid.

First, Nintendo have announced a date for the game to hit Euro shores, this has been followed up with the reveal of a cosy Limited Edition set for the continent, and finally, a new trailer appeared to further whet appetites.The humble, but still very cool, limited edition will include the Switch game, a collection of character art cards, and three CDs featuring the game's original soundtrack. It will be released in Europe, alongside the standard edition of the game, on October 20. This is just shy of a month after Warriors' Japanese release. How times have changed at Nintendo regarding localisation dates. In this case at any rate.

The new trailer, revealed at Gamescom, adds Camilla, Leo, Hinoka, and Takumi to the cast of characters, geared for battle, when Fire Emblem Warriors launches this Autumn on Nintendo Switch and New 3DS.
