New Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess Trailer Cuts Right To The Stupid

Koei Tecmo is bringing an arsenal of traps to players this July via Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess. A new trailer shows some of these pitfalls, and they include surprises that are a bit more involved than spiky floors.

As we explained in our earlier preview, the game is a revamped version of Deception IV: Blood Ties, which was released on PlayStation 3 and Vita last year. Players can select between two demonic forces, Laegrinna and Velgruirie, who are so-called daughters of the devil. Their job is to lure unsuspecting victims into their lairs and (with help from the player and some crafty trap placement), defeat the intruders. Velgruirie is a new addition to the series. 

Don't let the storyline fool you. As you can see in the trailer below, traps range from conventional things like iron maidens to more outlandish objects like exploding toilets, pandas, and the humiliation of being forced to wear an animal mask.

Stretchmo Expands His Way To 3DS

Stretchmo Expands His Way To 3DS

The latest game in the Pushmo series just got a stealth launch courtesy of Nintendo.

Pushmo is a portable puzzle game from Intelligent Systems that launched in 2011 to positive reviews, and was followed up by the similarly praised Crashmo in 2012. The series took a step backwards with the Wii-U's Pushmo World in 2014, which ignored Crashmo's advancements, defaulting to the original game's simple mechanics. Intelligent Systems is hoping the series is back on track with today's surprise launch of Stretchmo. As you might guess, the new installment adds a stretching mechanic to Mallo's repertoire.

Stretchmo is available now on the 3DS eShop, with the first 7 puzzles being offered as a free download. After that players can buy several packs, which are detailed below courtesy of Nintendo:

Put Your Crew Together And Relive 1970s Heist Movies With The Masterplan

It’s hard not to love heist movies. That genre is one of the few in which its easy to cheer for the bad guy as they abscond with some chump’s hard-earned (or ill-gotten) gains. The Masterplan from Shark Punch tries to capture the feel of movies like The Squeeze from the 1970s.

As you’ll see in the video below, you command a gang of criminals with diverse skills. You’ll need a wheelman, a safecracker, someone on the inside, and (if things go south) someone who is handy with firearms.

Overwatch’s Mercy Brings Healing On The Wings Of Angels

about X hours ago from

Yesterday, we shared a video of Overwatch’s “omnic monk” Zenyatta finding inner peace through outright destruction of his opponents. Today, we showcase a character that plays quite differently.

Mercy is a winged healer who is better played away from the front line. You don’t want her too far out of reach though, because her healing beam can keep the damage-dealing members of the team alive and killing. She can also amplify ally damage with the alternate version of the beam.

Retro Racing Title Shows Off Wii U Gameplay

Retro Racing Title Shows Off Wii U Gameplay

The aptly-named The 90's Arcade Racer showed off smooth Wii U gameplay today. The video, which shows the game running at 720p and 60 frames per second, takes players through the menus and right into the action of this retro racer inspired by the likes of Daytona U.S.A. and other classic arcade titles.

The 90's Arcade Racer is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $25,000. Though it was originally a single-person project, the team at Nicalis eventually joined up to assist with development. The video shows off good-looking locales that range from ocean-front streets to a town in the mountains, to even a miniature track assembled in a child's playroom. The physics are meant to be an homage to handling in the racing games that populated the arcades of the 1990s. You can check out the latest Wii U gameplay footage below.
