Three New Battle Systems Detailed

about X hours ago from

NIS America has released details about the all new battle systems coming to Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance. The new features were first unveiled last year, but today's announcement explains each of the three new mechanics in detail.

Alliance Attacks resemble team attacks, but are only available when strong relationships have been formed between main characters and their teammates. If that bond is strong enough, main characters will be able to launch an Alliance Attack and dish out heavy damage.The second new battle mechanic, Revenge Mode, triggers additional stat bonuses when party members are either damaged or defeated. Overloads, the third new addition, can only be used when Revenge mode is active. Overloads are over-the-top attacks and skills each Overlord will be able to unleash on his or her enemies. 

The above information isn't all Disgaea fans have to be excited about today. Along with the details about the new battle systems, NIS America has also announced that The Disgaea Triple Play Collection will be coming to North America later this year. The collection neatly fits Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice, Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten, and Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness all on one disc and releases exclusively for PS3 on September 15.

See The Evolution Of Resident Evil 0 From TGS 2000 Prototype To HD Remaster

Capcom has released a new video showing how Resident Evil 0 has matured from prototype to original Gamecube release and finally to the upcoming HD version due out next year. The path begins at Tokyo Game Show 2000, during which a rough prototype reminiscent of much earlier titles was shown.

Due to platform transitions, the title didn’t see release until November 2002 on the Gamecube. It found new life on the Wii, but never migrated from Nintendo platforms until now.

Transformers: Devastation Gameplay Is A Gee-Wonder To Behold

At E3, we got our first look at Transformers: Devastation, the upcoming Generation 1-inspired title from Platinum Games. Today, we get another high-flying, triple-changing, plasma-axing look at the title.

Platinum is working hard to nail the look of the original 1980s cartoon, and the presence of both Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime) and Frank Welker (Megatron) certainly helps sell it. The battles look frantic and flashy, amounting to pretty much everything we ever wanted in a Transformers game as we played on the floor in our rooms making the iconic sound with our mouths.

Soldier: 76 Is The Latest Overwatch Character To Get The Spotlight

While most of the world has yet to touch Overwatch, that isn’t stopping Blizzard from trying to get people excited. Today we’ve got yet another match featuring the most recently announced character, Soldier: 76.

76 is a vigilante, relentlessly pursuing the truth behind Overwatch’s collapse. He wields a pulse rifle and rockets, and has the ability to sprint into (or out of) combat. His biotic field heals him and nearby allies to keep the team on its feet.

His ultimate ability, the tactical visor, locks 76 onto the nearest threat. If that enemy leaves the field of view, the visor snaps to the next target.
