Gears Of War 4's First Trailer Juxtaposes Farmer Marcus And Soldier J.D.

about X hours ago from

Old McFenix had a farm. After the locust were defeated and Sera saw peace once more, Marcus Fenix hung up the lancer and picked up a hoe.

As you can probably imagine (because Gears of War 4 isn't a Harvest Moon clone), things get bad again. The first trailer for Gears of War 4 is a juxtaposition between bucolic post-war life and a return to aggression as Marcus' son J.D. runs from a shadowy foe.

The Free-To-Play RPG Draws From The Heavily-Populated Cast Of The Tales Series

about X hours ago from

Bandai Namco new free-to-play RPG acts as a "who's who" of the Tales series, and is available now on iOS and Android. Players pull off flashy combos by linking together the members of their party with a swift swipe of the thumb.

Tales of Link tasks you with creating a party consisting of nine different characters, and using the game's "touch-link" battle system to connect them for optimal damage. It's set in a world guarded by the "Seal of the Holy Shrine," which, for a name like that, is surprisingly susceptible to demons. 

Something called the "Seed of Ruin" inevitably breaks the seal, and now heaven and Earth are in jeopardy. It's typical Tales fare, giving you the heavy burden of stopping a world-ending catastrophe. 

Deep Silver Gives More Details On The Backstory

By now, most people know that the Homefront series takes a look at what could happen if the United States was invaded and defeated by North Korean military forces. The premise is certainly an interesting one, but many would agree that it wasn't explored thoroughly enough in the first game of the series, 2011's Homefront. With Homefront: The Revolution, Deep Silver and developer Dambuster Studios is looking to dive deeper into the lore and backstory of the series.

At the center of this exploration of the story is a mysterious company called APEX. The company is described as Apple, if Apple acted like an extension of the government. According to a mock press release for the company that we received, APEX was founded in 1973 as a North Korean start-up and has since grown to the world's largest corporation, posting a net income of $804.3 billion on yearly revenues of $2.34 trillion.
