See The Game In Action Via First Gameplay Trailer

Developer inXile Entertainment has released the first gameplay video of its upcoming RPG Torment: Tides of Numenera. The new trailer includes three minutes of pre-alpha footage, including glimpses of its conversation system, exploration, and more.

The video is set in the Bloom, a creepy environment based on Monte Cook's Numenera setting. It's a city built around a massive parasite, and you can see the creature work its magic in one particularly bizarre moment. The game's dialogue gets a significant chunk of the video, highlighting the voice acting and myriad branching directions that conversations can take. As the end of the clip says, Tides of Numenera is almost a response to criticisms that gamers don't like to read, and that the PC RPG is dead.

Past And Future Collide In Deep Down TGS Trailer

Capcom’s Deep Down made a splash at the PlayStation 4 reveal in February 2013 and then again at last year’s Tokyo Game Show. The title slid from view this year, with no-shows at E3 and Gamescom this year. After that hiatus, Capcom is giving us a new look from this year’s TGS.

Deep Down, which is still not confirmed for release outside of Japan (though the English voice over gives us hope), looks similar to FromSoftware’s work on the Souls franchise. This time though, there is a bit more revealed about the story.

Ten Minutes Of Mister Torgue Shouting About Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

about X hours ago from

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a scant month away. And if you haven’t been paying attention to our hands-on previews, character deep dives, and the new team-up between Gearbox and 2K Australia, you’re in luck. All those things we wrote about are now the subject of 10 minutes of Mister Torgue screaming.

Torgue is joined by Sir Hammerlock to discuss the (anti-)heroes, the dangers of Pandora’s moon, and the connection between this title and the two previous Borderlands excursions. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel introduces new cryo and laser weapons, low gravity combat, and something we may or may not be allowed to call a “butt slam.”

Bloodborne TGS Trailer Drips With Action And Online Play

Sony has just announced the release date for Bloodborne here in North America, as well as a collector’s edition if that’s your thing. Straight from the Tokyo Game Show (going on right now), we also have a new look at the game in action.

This new look at FromSoftware’s signature Souls-style gameplay shows us some of the larger, fiercer enemies we’ll be fighting. It also gives us our first look at the online play, which might help even the odds against the studio’s crushingly difficult design.

Everything We Know About Tales of Zestiria

about X hours ago from

At a pre-TGS showcase, Bandai Namco put its beloved Tales franchise on display. We played a Japanese build of the upcoming PS3 entry in the long-running franchise, Tales of Zestiria. Producer Hideo Baba also discussed a few elements of the game, providing a great introduction into the mysterious next iteration. Baba is still confident in the series and adamant on bringing stateside as many Tales entries as possible. In fact, when Zestiria was announced, it was confirmed as an international release. Perhaps, the days of waiting for localization news on Tales games is over (we hope).

Zestiria is already looking like a promising entry. Here’s everything we uncovered about the game based on hands-on time and Baba’s presentation.

What are information are you hoping Bandai Namco reveals next about the game?

Getting Your Emotions Under Control

about X hours ago from

Tales of Hearts R begins with a poem about a princess who slept over 1,000 years and a cursed man out to end the world. You’ve heard stories similar to this before: a villain seeks destruction while the world’s fate rests on an inexperienced boy’s shoulders. Tales of Hearts R is aware and isn’t afraid to poke fun at itself or be campy. While I’m not sure how it will all shake out in the final product, and I’ll even admit the writing does have a tendency to go for the low-hanging fruit, there’s something endearing about it.

I say this up front because the cheese factor of the story may make you roll your eyes. But I don’t want that to deter you from this entry just yet. I had a lot of fun with Tales of Hearts R, which reminded me a lot of the excitement I had playing Ys: Memories of Celceta, also on the Vita. 

Tales of Hearts R is about siblings Kohaku and Hisui Hearts. The first big cutscene has them running from a witch and jumping off a cliff to escape. The game then cuts to Kor Meteor, a young boy training and living with his grandpa. Kor and his grandpa like to joke around, but his grandpa is serious about teaching Kor how to use his soma, an ancient weapon. He tells Kor he can use it for healing or destruction and advises him to withstand his emotions.

Square Enix Announces March Release Date

Square Enix Announces March Release Date

Back in June, Square Enix announced that it would be bringing an HD remaster of Final Fantasy Type-0 to new-generation consoles. Since the title was previously exclusive to Japan and the PSP, the opportunity to play the game in English on a PS4 or Xbox One is exciting for fans. Today, the publisher revealed that we don't have to wait too long to see what we've been missing.  

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD will release on March 17 in North America, March 19 in Japan, and March 20 in Europe. As an added bonus, it will include a voucher for Episode Duscae, the downloadable Final Fantasy XV demo.

Type-0 tells the story of 14 students with special powers who are drawn into a war between the Milites Empire and the Dominion of Rubrum. The game has been out for a few years, so you can find spoilers about the story if you really want to ruin it. Otherwise, you can just check out the pretty screenshots below.

New Evil Within Screenshot Gallery Shows 'Laura,' Other Horrors

New Evil Within Screenshot Gallery Shows 'Laura,' Other Horrors

I played through the first five hours of Tango Gameworks' upcoming The Evil Within, and came across the spider-like creature pictured in the screenshot above. Tango hasn't given any of its creatures and demons proper names, but publisher Bethesda Softworks has lovingly named her "Laura." No one from Bethesda's team could tell me why this specific name was picked, but she's one of the few beasts to have adopted a name.

The picture above makes it look like protagonist Sebastian Castellanos has the upper hand in this particular encounter, and he may very well have it. In my playthrough, Laura appeared to be unbeatable. I fired off shotgun blasts, and almost my entire arsenal at her, but nothing seemed to hurt or even phase her. She scurried along the ground with those long arms and claws extended and tore Castellanos to shreds.

My only solution was to run for my life. That may be the only means of dealing with her in the first encounter.

You’ll Be Able To Scan Your Face Into NBA 2K15

This year, 2K Sports will be fulfilling the wishes of many NBA hopefuls (and couch coaches). You’ll be able to use first-party camera technology like the PlayStation camera on PS4 to create a 3D model of your face in the game.

A new video shows off the process, which involves a short amount of time and a straightforward process. The resultant scan can be tweaked before you take control of your hoops star.
