Catch Up On The Black Ops Story Ahead Of Call Of Duty: Black Ops III

Catch Up On The Black Ops Story Ahead Of Call Of Duty: Black Ops III

A new video from Treyarch recaps the events of the first two Call of Duty: Black Ops games ahead of the release of the third game in November.

Call of Duty has always been a series that includes story, but isn't necessarily commended for its narrative. I think many would agree, though, that the Black Ops storyline is among the strongest of the series. It's complicated, includes people who aren't actually real, and big timeline jumps, which is why this video is helpful.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III releases November 6. For more on the game, head here.

Four Reasons You Should Play The New Resident Evil 0 Remake

about X hours ago from

Resident Evil remakes have become a dime of dozen with Capcom capitalizing on a new audience of gamers, while still letting fans re-experience their favorite games with a fresh coat of paint. After successfully remaking the first Resident Evil, Capcom has moved on to its prequel, Resident Evil 0. This isn't the first time we've had a remake of this game; a version for the Wii came out back in 2008, but that was merely a port. Resident Evil 0 features several enhancements to make the experience much smoother. At TGS, we went hands-on with the new remake and talked to producer Tsukasa Takenaka to learn more about it.

 For new players or fans unsure about Resident Evil 0, we've broken down the finer points of the game.

Latest Blood Bowl II Trailer Pits High Elves Against Grimy Orcs

Latest Blood Bowl II Trailer Pits High Elves Against Grimy Orcs

Blood Bowl II is out next week, which means those of you who like to hammer on the “violence button” in your sports games are in luck. The latest gameplay video shows off another pair of opposites: the High Elves are taking on the Orcs.

While the High Elves focus on finesse and passing, the Orcs prefer to get up close and personal. That isn’t to say they don’t have a passing game… it’s just that it comes with a bit of risk as you’ll see below.

Soma Trailer Offers An Eerie Exploration Of Humanity

about X hours ago from

What happened at the underwater facility PATHOS-II? How did you get there? And are its inhabitants robotic, human, or some kind of bizarre half step between the two? A new trailer from Frictional Games' Soma poses these questions, and may cause you to ask a few yourself.

The eerie setting might make it look like a typical horror game, but it's lined with a heavy dose of existentialism. It seems as though Frictional is working to create something that sticks with players long after the credits roll, in a way that jump scares alone don't often do. Take a look at the trailer below to get a taste of what we mean.

Kobojo's Collaborative Effort May Be The JRPG We All Want On Mobile

Kobojo's Collaborative Effort May Be The JRPG We All Want On Mobile

Few titles at this year’s Tokyo Game Show managed to truly grab one’s attention. Several excellent games showed only minor new features, and a couple of announcements look intriguing. But on my personal wish list, no game came close to Zodiac: Orcanon Odyssey, a long-awaited Japanese-style RPG created by a French development studio called Kobojo.  While we’ve known about Zodiac for some time, this was my first time getting extensive hands-on, and I came away extremely excited to see how the final version shakes out, especially since the team is hoping to release on iOS in October, only a few weeks from now.

While a few excellent mobile JRPGs are exceptions to the rule, a large majority that I have played draw you in with beautiful art and promises of a compelling story, only to dash your hopes with the introduction of exploitative micro-transactions and tired storytelling. Not so with Zodiac, which is releasing as a premium-priced title, and then leaving you to play its lengthy story to completion without any additional pay walls. 

The Star Ocean Series Is Back, Here’s Why It’s Still Fun

The Star Ocean Series Is Back, Here’s Why It’s Still Fun

Star Ocean will always hold a special place in my heart, earning its claim to fame for its engaging action-battle system, copious customization options, and multiple eclectic party members. The sci-fi RPG entries felt like diamonds in the rough in their heyday. Unfortunately, later entries didn't quite share the same magic. Star Ocean 3: Until The End Of Time had a plot twist that divided gamers, amid other issues, while Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope had an abysmal story and annoying characters to boot. The future looked uncertain with the disappointment many fans found with The Last Hope. But just recently Square Enix announced a comeback for the series with Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithfulness. During this year's TGS, I went hands-on with the game, and it reminded me why I enjoyed these games in the first place.

Battles That Force You To Focus

We Do Battle With The Newest Combatants

We Do Battle With The Newest Combatants

Capcom had some of the most high-profile games at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, including new content for its highly anticipated fighter, Street Fighter V. Fellow editor Kim Wallace and I visited a private demo which included the game’s two newest combatants – Karin and Rashid, and we put the two through their paces.

The arrival of Karin Kanzuki is the big news for the show, as she is one of the most popular characters in the series, according to polls Capcom put to its player base. In fact, Karin topped the popularity list in Japan, and came in 7th overall around the world. Having appeared only in Street Fighter Alpha 3, her return should be a welcome entry for fans. 

I’m no Street Fighter expert, but even I could recognize Karin’s broad utility and fun play options. In my matches, Karin appeared to be relatively well-rounded, but with a particular focus on quick approaches to distant enemies using her dash moves. Her V-Skill allows her to build up towards a big V-Trigger, but also has strong utililty on its own, allowing her to hit with a palm strike that also doubles as a defensive option by dissipating incoming projectiles. 

Halo 5’s Collectible Card Req System Is A Gateway To In-Game Microtransactions

about X hours ago from

Microsoft and 343 Industries have announced how the Halo 5: Guardians requisition (req) system will impact both the Warzone and Arena multiplayer modes. They come in permanent and consumable varieties, and you can either purchase packs of them with earned req points or with real money.

The video below details the ins and outs of the system and how you can get cards. It isn’t specific about real money costs, but 343 suggests it is “generous” with doling out points to spend on packs.
