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

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.

Overdrives, Badges, And Beards Get Their Moment In Sunset Overdrive

about X hours ago from

Badges? You might not need no stinkin' badges, but as the new episode of Sunset TV shows, you'll probably want to collect 'em.

As you can see in the video below, badges play a part in the game's Overdrive system. You earn badges by performing different in-game stunts, like grinding or using traps. There are a dozen categories, and you can then trade those badges in for Overdrives, which are passive upgrades. They add special attributes to your character, like providing regenerating health, or a sneaky one that buffs your damage output while slowly draining your health. You can have up to six different Overdrives active at a time, and players are encouraged to mix and match them to suit their individual playstyle.

Character customization gets another nod, too, including word that your female characters can have beards and other facial hair. Why not?

Check Out Battlefield Hardline’s ‘Hotwire’ High-Speed Chase Multiplayer Mode

Check Out Battlefield Hardline’s ‘Hotwire’ High-Speed Chase Multiplayer Mode

When we spoke with EA CEO Andrew Wilson at Gamescom last month, he talked a bit about delaying Battlefield Hardline. One of the reasons he cited was to make the game bigger and more thematic.

At Gamescom, EA revealed two new multiplayer modes for the title. One of them, Hotwire, is a high-speed chase that still leans on Battlefield’s ticket-based victory model.

Driving the marked cars as either cop or criminal causes the other team to lose tickets. Standing still means you aren’t helping your team, so keep moving.

What Is The Buddy System In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain?

What Is The Buddy System In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain?

During a TGS stage presentation today, Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima revealed the existence of a “buddy system” for The Phantom Pain. This is a new mechanic to the series, and it has the potential to drastically change the stealth operations Big Boss faces in the upcoming title.

Despite what the name may imply, this mode isn’t a way for you to play cooperatively with friends. Instead, it allows an ally to join Snake on the battlefield and lend unique support. During the on-stage demo, Big Boss was able to call in Quiet as back up in a rescue operation. After parachuting in from a helicopter, she was available for various commands and cooperative maneuvers during the mission.

Kojima was asked about the presence of other buddies in addition to Quiet, and though he didn’t respond firmly one way or the other, he said that they were only focusing on her for the demo – which implies that they will be talking about more at a different time.

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.
