The Zombies Are Your Greatest Tools

about X hours ago from

It was something of a surprise on Tuesday when we learned that the newest entry in the Resident Evil catalog is a third-person shooter that borrows liberally from existing shooter tropes, including some seen in games like Counterstrike and Call of Duty. However, several features help the new project feel like its own undead beast. We played several rounds at TGS 2015, and spoke with the developers to get a better sense of how the game works.

Umbrella Corps is definitely not a story-based game, but its developers told us that it is set within the broader fiction of the Resident Evil world. Set in 2015, you’re fighting on a team of mercenaries, working for one of several competing pharmaceutical companies looking to lock down the secrets of the now defunct Umbrella Corporation. To do so, you’re heading into a zombie-infested outbreak site to lock it down.

Needless to say, most of that background is lost in the shuffle of what is fundamentally a fast-paced, team-based shooter. Moving in teams of up to five players on a side, you advance into combat with both enemy players and zombies on the game board at the same time. 

New Final Fantasy XV Trailer Sets A Somber Mood For Next Year's Adventure

about X hours ago from

Square Enix today released a new trailer that shows protagonists Noctis and Luna reflecting on their dark pasts. This is the second "Dawn" trailer that Square Enix has released, both give us small tastes of what happened 15 years before the events of Final Fantasy XV. The first Dawn trailer debuted at Gamescom earlier this year.

The new trailer doesn't say much, and doesn't offer any new gameplay footage, but does paint a much darker tone than we've seen for any Final Fantasy game. It'll be interesting to see how this tone translates to the game. Final Fantasy XV is currently slated to release in 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Watch Real World Locations Become The Inspiration For Final Fantasy XV

about X hours ago from

Game development sometimes has nothing to do with coding or creating art assets. In one of two new videos released by Square Enix today, we get a behind-the-scenes look at the extensive location scouting that went into Final Fantasy XV's development. If you want to see game developers crawl into holes, enter caves, make dinner, go to the zoo, watch tanks blow stuff up, catch snakes, and climb mountains, watch the video below – it's one of the strangest game-related videos you'll see this year.

If anything, it shows us just how committed Square Enix is to getting the little details right in Final Fantasy XV. It also shows us that game development can be a hell of a lot of fun.

Capcom Fighters Network & The Return Of Karin Unveiled For Street Fighter V

Capcom Fighters Network & The Return Of Karin Unveiled For Street Fighter V

After placing first in a Japanese fan poll two years ago, Capcom has decided to include Karin as the next character in Street Fighter V, with a new look and playstyle from her last appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3. Also at TGS, the company dropped some info about the game's online infrastructure.

Karin practices her own Kanzuki fighting style. She's generally a well-rounded fighter who has a dash to close distances, and her V-Trigger allows her to use her Guren Ken attack. This can be followed up by half-a-dozen moves, including a flying throw, backdash for counter-attacks, and a low sweep. Be sure to check out her debut trailer below.

At TGS, the company also announced the Capcom Fighters Network – a community-building component of the game's online infrastructure with features such as a heat map for finding where the action is (including being able to drill down into individual users), match stats, the ability to designate rivals, replays, invites, and more. Capcom says it will unveil more details about CFN soon.

Human Child Experiences Reality-Shattering Life Event In Lego Dimensions Trailer

about X hours ago from

Warner Interactive and TT Games have released a new trailer for Lego Dimensions, which is (perhaps unintentionally) an homage to kid-focused advertising from back in the day.

The clip doesn't feature any notable gameplay or particularly interesting character animations, but it does have one thing going for it: A kid is sucked into an alternate dimension after the walls of his home crack apart. All that's missing from the '90s-style punchline is a squealing guitar riff and a shot of our young hero putting on a pair of bitchin' shades. Maybe next time.

Persona 5 Delayed, Will Now Release Summer 2016 In Japan

about X hours ago from

While this is likely not to surprise anyone too much, Atlus has confirmed that Persona 5 won’t be arriving this year. At least we have a gorgeous new trailer as salve for this burn.

The bad news is that it means we might have to wait an entire extra year for western localization. In the meantime, I suggest you play Persona Q on 3DS. It’s that good.

Fallout 4’s Perception Stat Makes You Better At Stealing

Fallout 4’s Perception Stat Makes You Better At Stealing

In the second Fallout 4 “What Makes You S.P.E.C.I.A.L.” video, we learn about the importance of perception. Using your five senses in the harsh wasteland gives you an edge in combat and can keep you out of trouble.

A high perception can increase your ability to hit an opponent while using the VATS targeting system. It can also enable you to pickpocket (or drop a live grenade into an enemy’s pocket) without being caught.
