Colorful Characters Abound In New Trailer And Screens

about X hours ago from

We've got a fresh batch of screens for Atlus and Intelligent Systems' crossover RPG, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, which show off some of the characters you'll be interacting with.

The screens focus exclusively on characters and environments, so if you're hoping for a glimpse of the actual gameplay, you're out of look. The Japanese trailer shows just a few glimpses of characters moving around in stages, but you may be too overwhelmed by the colorful visuals to notice.

about X hours ago from

It’s hard to show the full extent of a VR game without using a VR headset, but the E3 trailer for Rigs Mechanized Combat League shows a promising first look at the upcoming Project Morpheus game.

Rigs is a 3v3 arena combat game being developed by Gurrellia Cambridge exclusively for use with Sony’s Morpheus VR headset. The game drops players right into a flying, shooting mech designed to be maneuvered through a futuristic sports arena. Piloting the mech will require players to use the Project Morpheus headset in conjunction with a Dualshock 4 controller, but directional movement will be heavily dependent on using the VR tech.

Things Get Crazy In New Super Mario Maker Trailer And Screens

about X hours ago from

Thanks to the newly renamed Super Mario Maker, Nintendo fans finally have the ability craft their own levels for everyone's favorite plumber to hop through. A new trailer and screens show just how creative and insane levels can get. 

As the new screens and trailer demonstrate, running into waves of flame or a fire-breathing Bowser in the middle of a level is a common occurrence. I'm sure Super Mario Maker will introduce Super Meat Boy-levels of difficulty to the timeless platforming series, which should be interesting to see. Here's the trailer:

about X hours ago from

Tales of Zestiria is the next entry in the long-running series set to launch in October. These latest screens get you up close with the characters.

The game  launches on October 20. Originally, Tales of Zestiria was a PS3 exclusive, but Bandai Namco recently confirmed that it will also be available on PlayStation 4 and PC. 

For E3 2015, Bandai Namco released some new screenshots, featuring the PC and PS4 versions. Get a look at them below.

Shredding In The New Freestyle Guitar Solos

about X hours ago from

The music game genre has always flourished when at its most accessible. With Rock Band 4, Harmonix isn't changing the controller or throwing you in front of a live action audience like Guitar Hero Live. Instead, Rock Band 4 is about delivering a familiar experience, built on the sturdy foundation of the franchise. The gameplay, the visuals, and the massive catalog of songs deliver an experience that any player of past titles is already accustomed to. As is typical with Harmonix, the sweeping innovation occurred earlier in its franchise's timeline.

That's not to say that Harmonix is satisfied with the status quo, however. Advanced pitch recognition for singers, improved drum fills for drummers, and a new stage presence mechanic are just the start, as this week, Harmonix is showcasing Rock Band 4's new freestyle guitar solos.

Freestyle guitar solos take the place of the traditional guitar solos from past games. Rather than playing the notes the original guitarist is playing in the master recording, the traditional note highway is replaced by a segmented freestyle highway that lets you improvise solos the way a guitarist might do during an actual live show.

The Variable System Is Fun, But Takes Some Getting Used To

The Variable System Is Fun, But Takes Some Getting Used To

Capcom's big Street Fighter V announcement during Sony's E3 2015 press conference was that kick-happy Cammy and dirty biker Birdie will be returning for the latest entry. SF veterans should definitely be excited about the return of those two, but the most significant changes come with the tweaks to the fighting system. I got my hands on SF,V at E3 this year, going several rounds with Capcom experts while learning the ropes of the new mechanics.

To the average Street Fighter IV fan, the variable system may seem a little intimidating at first. However, the EX gauge (filled up by dealing damage) is still intact, allowing characters to execute huge, devastating Critical Arts (basically supers) like insane kick flurries or wrapping an opponent in chains and jumping rope with them.

We recently got a chance to talk to the The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes director Hiromasa Shikata about the game unveiled at E3. We asked about Princess Zelda's involvement and tried to find out where the game lands in the Zelda timeline.

Shikata has been involved with the Zelda series for a long time. His very first video game job was on Ocarina of Time, he directed A Link Between Worlds, and was assistant directer on Twilight Princess. You can find an excerpt from our interview with Shikata below.

What is the basic story revolving around Triforce Heroes?

Extended Uncharted 4 Sequence Finds The Drake Brothers In Trouble

about X hours ago from

Like it normally does when it's at a Sony press conference, the latest Uncharted title, Thief's End, took the audience on a thrill-laden rollercoaster ride. What they didn't experience, however, was a large chunk of action that occurred after the screen went black. Today we saw more of the game's impressive action sequence, the motive's behind Sam's quest, as well as the return of Nathan's wife, Elena.

The trailer below show at the press conference dramatically stops when Nate's about to crash into wooden scaffolding while he's grappled to a crane truck chasing the escape of his brother Sam. Needless to say Nathan survives the ride and is dragged on the ground on the opposite bank, where he starts firing on an enemy jeep racing alongside. The jeep explodes and crashes, flipping up in a ball of fire and debris. Like in many other parts of the video, the onscreen spectacle of particles, dirt, and any other objects affected by the physics of the explosion is very impressive.
