The new video shows off new bosses like Pinnochio’s enormous whale Monstro and Roxas in Kingdom Hearts 2, new keyblades in both playable titles, and updated cutscenes (making a big difference in Birth by Sleep). There are also new challenges and a number of new items to collect.

Five Incorrect Assumptions About Multiplayer

Five Incorrect Assumptions About Multiplayer

When it comes to big fantasy RPGs, players expect certain elements to be present. A powerful story, interesting characters, and satisfying progression are just a few of the pillars of the genre. Multiplayer is not high on that list of expectations, but maybe that’s because players haven’t seen it done well enough to want more. Dragon Age: Inquisition could change that.

Multiplayer is new to the Dragon Age franchise, and some people may be tempted to dismiss it as a half-baked or tacked-on attempt to expand an audience. Not only is that a misconception, but it also opens the door to other faulty assumptions about multiplayer and its role in Inquisition. If you have doubts about BioWare’s intent for this mode, these refutations of potential complaints should put your mind at ease.

Blaxploitation Meets Ancient Greece In Funk of Titan

Are you a fan of Super Fly, Super Mario Bros., and the literary stylings of Homer? Than developer A Crowd of Monsters has you covered.

Its quirky new action/platforming title, Funk of Titans, combines the sensibilities of blaxploitation films with Greek mythology to create a game mash-up unlike anything else we've seen. In the game, you take the role of Perseus, a funkified son of Zeus who must travel through Greece to defeat gods who are challenging the power of funk by mesmerizing people with other forms of music. Through the course of more than 40 levels, you will re-establish the reign of funk by defeating enemies with your funk-fu, collecting golden records along the way.

New Comparison Screens Show Improved Graphics In Resident Evil Remake

about X hours ago from

Capcom is working on a remastered version of Resident Evil Remake, a new version of the classic survival horror game that released on GameCube in 2002.

That GameCube title was eventually ported to Wii, but since the system couldn't output true HD, it wasn't markedly better looking. Now, a fully HD remaster of Resident Evil is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Today, Capcom released some new images of the game, including three new shots that had been released in Japan. If you go to Capcom Unity, there are some great interactive screenshots that allow you to compare the Wii version with the 360/PS3 version by moving a slider across the screen to transition between the two. It's pretty impressive. These are shots of the Xbox 360/PS3 version, so it's conceivable that the Xbox One/PS4 version could look better still. Check out some comparison shots below, and look for the three new screens in the image gallery.

Escape Dead Island Gets Launch Date & New Trailer

about X hours ago from

Escape Dead Island links the two previous games in the zombie series, and it also approaches gameplay slightly different as well.

Publisher Deep Silver and developer Fatshark have announced that the game hits the PS3, 360, and PC on November 18.

The title still has plenty of zombies to eviscerate, but it also adds a more thoughtful stealth element. For more on the game, take a look at Kyle's hands-on.
