XSEED Removing Intimacy Mode From PS4 Version Of Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal

When it launches sometime this fall, the PS4 and PC versions of Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal, a remake of the original Senran Kagura game, will have at least one major difference, as the PS4 version will lack the series' "Intimacy Mode."

The mode, which has players dressing characters up in various outfits (including bathing suits and other intimate attire) and using their hands and other objects to massage or caress the game's young (and frequently underage) characters, seems to have crossed a line for Sony. Publisher XSEED games announced the removal of the mode from the PS4 version with the following statement:

In a follow-up tweet, the company quickly alluded to this being Sony's decision. "We respect the wishes of the platform holder," it tweeted.

For Honor Celebrates 15 Million Players, Teases 2019's 'Year Of The Harbinger'

Since its launch early last year, For Honor has steadily increased its playerbase with frequent content, technical, and balance updates. With its major Marching Fire expansion hitting next week, the team behind the game has decided to celebrate a huge milestone, while also teasing the next year of For Honor content.

Earlier this week, the game celebrated hitting the 15 million-player milestone, continuing Ubisoft's streak of multiplayer games growing over the course of their lifespan (Rainbow Six Siege hit the 35 million-player mark earlier this year).

This bodes well for the game going into Marching Fire, the upcoming release of which prompted Ubisoft to host a livestream. Towards the end of the that stream, however, it offered players a tease at was coming to For Honor after Marching Fire: The Year of the Harbinger. The image (above) shows a war hammer planted on firm ground. While thoughts of Mjolnir come to mind, the ornamentation doesn't quite match Nordic designs (especially with the lizard/dragon on the hilt). It could be teasing a new faction, hero, or more.

Weekend Warrior – Taking Little Bites Out Of The Great Grecian Apple

Weekend Warrior – Taking Little Bites Out Of The Great Grecian Apple

This weekend most of us are getting lost in the massive open world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey or popping off shots in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Mega Man 11, Maple Story 2, and Forza Horizon 4 are also in the mix. Otherwise we’re just chillin’.  Per usual, let us know what you’re doing this weekend in the comments section below.

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) - My video game time will be split between Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout mode and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey on Google's streaming platform, which is pretty decent! Call of Duty has a setting where you can turn off the gore and make the zombies look cartoonish. I don't know if that will be enough to make me feel comfortable playing it around the kid, but I really appreciate that it's an option. Otherwise it will be a lot of relaxing after last weekend's (and most of the week's) birthday party extravaganza.

11-11: Memories Retold To Receive DLC In Support Of The War Child Charity

11-11: Memories Retold is an upcoming game from some of the minds behind Valiant Hearts and the animation studio, Aardman, that explores relationships forged during World War I.

Today publisher Bandai Namco announced plans to release DLC for the game and a portion of its sales will go towards the charity War Child, which helps children affected by war. You can learn more about the charity here, or by listening to Elijah Wood (who plays the game's protagonist, Harry) explain it in the video below.

In terms of the DLC's content, it will follow the story of Jack and Eva, two young children affected by the violence of World War I. The DLC's story is apparently, "directly inspired by real life stories from the children supported by War Child."

Injustice 2 Artist Shares Unused Concept Art For Krypto The Superdog, Mr. Freeze, And More

Injustice 2 had a large cast out of the gate and even more were added post-release, but the well of DC characters (and even non-DC characters) is deep, so there were plenty of characters that were conceived that didn't make the cut.

Concept artist Justin Murray, who worked on the game, recently shared art for some of those unused characters as well as art for other aspects of the game. You can find all the art on Murray's portfolio website right here to see images of Kryto the Superdog, Mr. Freeze, Constantine, Blue Bird, Etrigan, Detective Chimp, and assorted Darkseid monsters for an idea of what those characters would have looked like had they made an appearance.
