Ratchet & Clank Remake Is Looking Mighty Fine

Sony is stacking up April with big name releases. Nathan Drake will have his time in the sun later in the month, and he's going to be preceded by Insomniac's Ratchet & Clank.

The game, which is a complete re-envisioning of Ratchet & Clank's 2002 debut, isn't a shot-for-shot update. Instead, it's based on the movie. Yes, the movie is based on the game. The original game. Not this one. This one is based on the movie. Just watch the trailer.

Deep Silver Sends Us Back To War When Homefront: The Revolution Launches May 17

about X hours ago from

2015 wasn't Deep Silver's best year. The company was forced to delay Dead Island 2 after a falling out with developer Yager. It also didn't make its original 2015 release for Homefront: The Revolution after its publishing deal with Crytek underwent massive change.

In the wake of Crytek's financial problems and subsequent transfer of the Homefront license to Deep Silver, the publisher needed to form an entirely new studio. Dambuster is finally putting the finishing touches on its first title.

Another Look At Me-Versus-You-Versus-Zombies Shooter Moving Hazard

Last month, we got our first look at Illfonic and Psyop Games’ twist on multiplayer shooters, Moving Hazard. The twist is that as players battle each other to death (as if there is any other way), they’ll be able to use equipment to control the zombie horde.

Oh, did we forget to mention the undead? The battlefields on which Moving Hazard takes place are littered with the shambling corpses of the formerly living.

Japanese Video Shows Extended Look At Hyrule Warriors Legends

about X hours ago from

Nintendo fans may have to wait until March 25 to get their hands on Hyrule Warriors Legends, but that doesn't mean they can't get a lengthy look at the game in action. Koei Tecmo has released a new Japanese video featuring extensive gameplay, including a glimpse of what the King Dodongo battle looks like on the 3DS.

The video is hosted by Team Ninja producer Yosuke Hayashi and voice actor Ruriko Aoki. They break down the game's various systems and mechanics, though since it's all in Japanese it may or may not be of much use to you. Regardless, it's a nice way to see how the port of the Wii U original fares on the lower-powered hardware.

Learn How Unravel’s Adorable Yarny Came To Life

about X hours ago from

At E3 last year, EA surprised us with a game that was decidedly “un-EA.” Coldwood’s Unravel is an adorable puzzle platform with a heartfelt message that’s almost as far as you can get from Madden and Battlefront.

Unravel, which is set in Northern Scandinavia, features a variety of different environments to explore. We’ve seen a lot of the park area, but a new video gives us glimpses of Yarny adventuring through the snow.
