New Trailer Sets Up The Story

about X hours ago from

It's still mostly vague and mysterious, but a new trailer for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (sort of) sets up the game's story.

There are some mysterious bells that don't sound like school bells, and they could lead to your death. Also, there is a chemically weaponized crossbow, and Teddie gets flattened.

You can check out the trailer for the game below which launches for 3DS on November 25.

Alien: Isolation Has Made Me A Believer

about X hours ago from

Earlier this year, I got to play Alien: Isolation for the first time. The demo was thrilling and I walked away wanting more, but, as I pointed out in this month’s cover story, I didn’t have a whole lot of context for what I was seeing. The Creative Assembly did a great job of setting up the action before dropping me into a station with the creature – unarmed, no less – but I wanted to see it unfold myself. Months later, I got my wish. I was able to play the game from its opening moments through the game’s seventh chapter. In that time, I got my bearings on Sevastopol station, met up with some of its hostile inhabitants, and had my interest in the game cemented. Read on for my updated reasons for why I think The Creative Assembly is making the Alien game that could help redeem the franchise.

The Most Exciting Things We Learned About Resident Evil Revelations 2

The Most Exciting Things We Learned About Resident Evil Revelations 2

Information has been trickling out on Resident Evil Revelations 2 ever since its announcement was leaked. We found even more when we went hands-on for a TGS demo and spoke to producer Michiteru Okabe. Get ready for some fan service and jump scares! These are the things we found most interesting.

It Has Deeper Story

As it was revealed earlier, Resident Evil Revelations 2 is episodic. This means the story must be compelling to keep the audience coming back for new episodes. Capcom saw Telltale's success with The Walking Dead and all the conversations that happened in between episodes and hope to create a similar reaction with Revelations 2. "It gives users the opportunity to take the conversation out of the game and into their actual life," Okabe said. The first game was already serialized, so they wanted to take it a step further and have really compelling cliffhangers. We won't spoil anything, but the ending of our demo episode had a woman echoing some pretty cryptic and deep philosophies. Just who the heck is on that island with them?

Video Vignettes Show Three Ways To Blow It

Make no mistake, the alien in Alien: Isolation is lethal. If you try to engage it head on, the way you may have done in previous games that feature the species, you're not going to survive. To commemorate the fragility of human life, Sega and The Creative Assembly have released three videos that show Amanda Ripley making what are in retrospect some fairly poor decisions.

Sega released one of these shorts a while back, but they're swarming us this round. Take a look at the trio of videos below to see what not to do when the game releases October 7.

What To Expect From The Remastered Version

about X hours ago from

Final Fantasy Type-0 released in Japan in 2011, but it never came out in North America due to flagging interest in the PSP. With the release date for the remastered version confirmed (not to mentioned a certain tantalizing demo), Final Fantasy fans’ eyes are now turned toward Type-0 HD.

As someone who hasn’t touched the original PSP version before, I wasn’t quite sure what I should expect. However, after playing through a demo of the game during TGS 2014, I can point to a few clear things that fans of the series should know before picking up Type-0 for themselves.

Identical Content This isn’t a remake or an extended cut of Type-0. It is the original game, but with better graphics, slightly modified controls, and some additional difficulties. On one hand, that means you aren’t getting a bunch of new special weapons or boss fights. On the other hand, it means you are experiencing the game as it was originally intended and designed – and there’s something to be said for that, too.

Almost 20 Minutes Of Battleborn Co-Op Gameplay Footage

Earlier this week, we shared with you our first impressions of Battleborn’s cooperative mode. While it certainly carries over some of the MOBA-like features of the competitive play we discussed in our August 2014 coverage hub, it plays very differently.

Now, Gearbox is ready to give us our first look at how the cooperative gameplay works. This will give you an idea of some of the different Battleborn available (nine have been revealed so far), the pacing of the game, and some of the different tactical options available to you.

This video is a replica of what we saw in our demo (complete with appearances by writer Aaron Linde and Creative Director Randy Varnell). Battleborn will arrive in 2015. The title is planned for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
