Two New Enemy Types Have Been Announced

In promotion of its upcoming game, Dead Rising 4, Capcom Vancouver recently gave a quick peek behind the curtain. Judging from this trailer, Dead Rising 4 will be the most gory and over the top of in the series yet, with gruesome new enemies and clever weapons.

One of the key points in this new trailer is the announcement of two new enemy types: the freshly infected and the evo. The freshly infected are newly-turned zombies that transform before players' eyes, attacking frantically and aggressively. The evo are stronger zombies, able to jump at players over long distances and dodge attacks. Also in this new trailer are some looks at combat, story, and lots of zombies.

Maybe it's our affinity for eye patches or fondness for peg legs. Perhaps it's the parrots, or possibly the iconic black flag. Regardless of why, one thing is certain: Pirates don't seem to be going anywhere, even as we move into space. The newly rechristened studio Dontnod Eleven has announced Battlecrew Space Pirates, which lets players battle their fellow space pirates in arcade-style matches.

Going Back To Sonic's Roots

Going Back To Sonic's Roots

Last night's announcement of Sonic Mania was well-received by fans of the classic Sonic titles. However, this isn't the first time that Sega has promised to return Sonic to his roots. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 was the biggest attempt to bring the speedy hedgehog back to his 2D glory, but it ultimately failed to recapture that magic thanks to some strange level design and physics that never felt quite right. It's because of this and other titles that haven't been well-received that many have curtailed their enthusiasm for Sonic Mania until they can play the game themselves. Thankfully, I had that opportunity and can report that Sonic Mania plays just like the classic Sonic games it models itself after.

The pixel graphics look like a combination of the visuals from Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, and Sonic CD. Even some of the animations mimic those of Sonic CD; as Sonic bounces upward off a spring, he spins like he did in CD. Sonic's running animation when he moves his fastest reminds me of the figure-8 run from CD as well, but without his legs forming the "8."
