Magicka 2's Wizardly Ways Translate Well To PlayStation 4

Many fantasy games offer players the option of playing as wizards and mages, but rarely do they take center stage like they did with Magicka. This PC game put the elements at its players' disposal, challenging them to fight through waves of enemies using primarily the spells at their finger tips to heal, ward, and attack. Its clever combinatorial approach to elemental spells won over more than 3 million players worldwide. For the sequel, Paradox Interactive is expanding the PC game's reach to PlayStation 4.

Magicka 2 preserves the popular elemental approach to spell casting, which gives the group of four mages the ability to mix and match the eight spells at their disposal. Players can't simply fire off area of effect damage spells with abandon, however, as friendly fire can cost your fellow mage his life. The game supports both couch co-op and online play, features drop-in accessibility, and scales the difficulty based on the number of players.

There Are No Dargons In New Final Fantsy X/X-2 Screen Shots

Last night, Square Enix announced the release date for Final Fantasy X/X-2 on PlayStation 4. Along with that, the publisher shared some screenshots of the title’s latest iteration.

Unfortunately, the company should have spent some additional time on proofreading. In two different images, the title of the franchise is misspelled. 

This isn’t the first time that publishers have bungled the spelling of their games' names. Square Enix published the iOS version of Dragon Quest IV in August 2014, as “Dargon Quest IV.”

Mortal Kombat X Will Have A Mobile Tie-In Game With Unlocks For Console, PC

Fans of NetherRealm's Injustice will likely remember the DC fighting game's tie-in mobile title. That's probably because there were costumes locked behind the title that many have still failed to unlock.

This morning, Warner Bros. announced that Mortal Kombat X will be getting its own mobile title. Based on the brief glimpses in the trailer below, it looks to follow the same formula, and it will have unlocks for the console and PC version.

Warner Bros. describes it as a "fighting/card battler," which is essentially what the previous effort was. Players collected Injustice character cards, upgraded them, and fought AI opponents using swipes and taps. It will be out in April for iOS and Android devices.

Mortal Kombat X will be out on April 14 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more, check out the recently released story trailer.

LittleBigPlanet Vita Developer Shows Off Suspense-Adventure Title In New Trailer

LittleBigPlanet Vita Developer Shows Off Suspense-Adventure Title In New Trailer

Tarsier Studios is known primarily for developing LittleBigPlanet Vita and porting Tearaway to PlayStation 4, but it recently released a trailer for its creepy, totally original game, Hunger.

The game is much different in tone that Tarsier's previous partnerships with Media Molecule and the LittleBigPlanet series. Hunger follows a little girl named Six as she tries to navigate a terrifying facility called The Maw. Tarsier is calling the game a 'suspense-adventure' title and a spiritual successor of sorts to an unreleased game the studio worked on called City of Metronome. The trailer recalls games like Limbo and is unnerving to watch in the best way.

Tarsier has not announced a release window or a platform, but considering the studio's partnership with Sony, PlayStation 4 seems like a pretty good bet.
