about X hours ago from

English speakers can play action/strategy RPG Summon Night 6: Lost Borders in 2017, as publisher Gaijinworks has been localizing the title since January. This is the second in the Summon Night series to head west, as Summon Night 5 was translated for its release last December on PSP.

The game follows three main characters Raj, Amu and Ist within the lonely “cocoon world” of Fillujah. They each have a flying companion with its own special power. Suddenly, tons of strangers being to fall onto their island, but fans of the franchise can recognize these strangers as characters from past Summon Night games. 

The game features over a dozen different possible endings, which each have alternate sub-ending depending on the player’s relationships with particular characters. Like the original Japanese version, the English-speaking version will implement voice-acting as well.   

Madden 17 Gets New Commentators, But More Importantly A New Approach

about X hours ago from

When it comes to the commentary package for a new Madden, thoughts rarely don't go beyond, "Who's doing it this year?" While the series has often relied on the name recognition of well-known TV commentators, what they say often gets less interesting after the first few times you hear the same lines repeated. But Madden 17 wants to change that, and the way it attempts to do this is not necessarily a matter of who they got, but rather how long they got them for.

The commentary team for Madden 17 is Brandon Gaudin (left, play-by-play) and Charles Davis (right, color/analysis). Gaudin has been the voice of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and will be working for the Big Ten Network this fall. Former Tennessee Volunteer Davis is a Fox commentator and NFL Network analyst.
