PlayStation 4 Version Adds Livestream Interactions, Visual Editor, New Game Mode, And More

about X hours ago from

When Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed comes to PlayStation 4 later this month, it’s bringing with it a whole lot of stuff that should give it new life on new gen. In addition to higher visual fidelity and faster load times, several gameplay options will be given to PS4 owners.

Players who choose to livestream their gaming sessions will be given the option to allow viewers to interact with the game in a variety of ways. If, for example, a viewer selects the Police command, the in-game five-o will be alerted to your debauchery, while Attack turns NPCs hostile toward the player. On the more characteristically absurd end of the spectrum, a series of panty-related commands will cause female undergarments in the area to react in any number of ways.

Toybox Mode lets players begin a new game with one of every weapon, clothing item and accessories right off the bat. The trade-off for the boost comes in the form of disabled trophies, nicknames, and other forms of in-game reward.

Rockstar Releases Video Comparing GTA V On PS4 And PS3

A new video from Rockstar places the PlayStation 3 and 4 versions of GTA V side-by-side.

The updates are fairly dramatic. Cars are much shinier, there is far more foliage, the weather effects are more intense, and there are more pedestrians everywhere.

You can check out the video below, and you can also check out a trailer showcasing the new first-person mode, exclusive to the new-gen and PC versions of the game, by heading here.

A new trailer titled Assassin’s Creed Unity 101 breaks down all the big advancements coming to the new-gen entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise.

You can check out the trailer below, which offers a lot of detail about Unity all in one convenient video package. You'll learn about the game's technical advancements, world, co-op, customization, and combat, as well as the new time anomalies, which I am hesitant to detail here as some may consider it a spoiler for Unity's story.

Developers Aim Spotlight On Lego Batman 3's Faces And Places

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham hits stores next week, and the developers at TT Games have released a pair of videos highlighting its characters and locations. Check out the clips to see oddities including Polka-Dot Man and Condiment King in action (or at least their version of it), as well as behind-the-scenes insight on the game's creation.

The videos feature commentary from game director Arthur Parsons, executive producer Phill Ring, and a host of other artists, animators, and Lego builders. The first video (below) shows how the team is pulling from DC's extensive lineup to generate Lego Batman 3's roster of 150-plus characters. In addition to the usual A-list heroes we've come to expect, you'll see appearances from characters who might charitably be referred to as bench warmers. If Lego Marvel Super Heroes was any indication, those lesser-known faces will still be a riot to play with.

Can You Survive The Dreamy But Deadly Spirit Nexus Mazes?

about X hours ago from

Ever wonder what makes up a person’s soul? According to the Tales of Hearts R, it’s a mystical force called Spiria, and Namco Bandai has released a number of screenshots showing it off.

Spiria is an essence that’s crucial to the story of Tales of Hearts R. Everyone in the game’s world has what’s called a Spiria Core, a hub of Spiria that governs a person’s soul. Tales of Hearts R’s story introduces Despir, an epidemic that feeds off those cores and afflicts entire towns.

As Kor Meteor, the game’s protagonist, players will perform a Spiria Link with sick villagers. This maneuver takes players to the Spiria Nexus, a dreamy labyrinth infested with Spiria-eating enemies known as Xerom. Players will have to purge to Nexus of the Xerom if they’re to save the infected.

Another Clerks Cast Member Joins Randal's Monday

about X hours ago from

Nexus Games’s upcoming “point-and-geek” adventure game now features a cast that includes two Clerks veterans. Jeff Anderson (Clerks' Randal) will voice the titular character while Jason Mewes (Jay from Clerks) will portray Jay.

Fans of 1994’s Clerks and its 2006 sequel will recognize both actors, but despite naming similarities, Randal’s Monday is decidedly not a Clerks-branded game. As Anderson states in the video below, the game incorporates a wealth of pop culture references, some of which allude to Clerks – but the parallels end there.

The video below should help explain the situation, while the screenshots exemplify the cartoonish humor used in the game.

You Can Choose To Sentence A Man To Death In Dragon Age: Inquisition

about X hours ago from

BioWare titles have featured morality systems for quite a while, with complexity and nuance growing with each installment. In Dragon Age: Inquisition, you can decide to execute someone dragged before you. We’re going to hope he deserved it.

In the latest trailer for the upcoming title, you’ll see some of the ways you can influence the story. As in previous entries, conversation choices will have an impact on the party members with you at the time. You’ll also make grander decisions, not the least of which is aligning yourself with the mages or the templars.

Import Custom Images And Your Own Face Into WWE 2K15

about X hours ago from

You might recall that NBA 2K15 includes the ability to scan your own face. The results were at times less than perfect (and more than amusing). That technology isn’t being used for WWE 2K15, but what is there seems better for anyone that knows how to use image editing software.

WWE 2K15 allows you to upload custom images for use on clothing or as tattoos. You can take a picture of yourself, strip out the background and import that, too. 

No messing with the Kinect or PlayStation Camera is required, but you’ll want to have a basic understanding of Photoshop (or a similar application) for best results. You can import a raw photograph too, but that might not turn out quite right.
