Pokémon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire Look A Lot Like X And Y

Earlier in the week, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company announced remakes of the Ruby and Sapphire editions of the game (sorry, Emerald fans, nothing on that yet). Today, we’ve got a look at the first footage from the title.

You’ll note that the clips of the two legendary Pokémon featured (Groudon for Omega Ruby and Kyogre for Alpha Sapphire) look very similar to the aesthetics of Pokémon X and Y. Nintendo promises that these will be full re-makes, and it appears that these titles are getting the full 3D treatment.

Tripwire Announces A New Blast Of Gore In Killing Floor 2

Sometimes it seems like you can't keep a zed down. Tripwire Interactive has announced that it's working on a sequel to its 2009 shooter, Killing Floor. Killing Floor 2 includes improvements to its melee combat, expanded perks, and a new blood system.

The game is set in Europe, one month after the events from the first game. Society is rapidly crumbling, and it's up to the player (either solo or with five friends) to try and clean up the mess that Horzine Biotech created. They'll do so using traditional firepower as well as so-called "Mad Scientist" weapons. As players progress, they can unlock perks to tailor their character to their own unique playstyles.

Tripwire seems especially proud of its new persistent blood system. As players slaughter the failed clones, they'll paint the walls with guts, gore, and severed body parts. Enemies can do the same, so it pays to stick close to your group, if you have one.

10 Things You Need To Know

Earlier today we revealed new, hands-on details about Insomniac’s new Xbox One-exclusive title, Sunset Overdrive. This colorful, third-person open-world game is a new direction for Insomniac, and there’s a lot to digest. From Tony Hawk-like traversal to Ratchet & Clank-inspired gunplay, we’ve boiled down everything you need to know.

It’s An Open-World Game

The sprawling, colorful landscape of Sunset City awaits you. Rails and power lines connect buildings of various heights. Demented, soda-infused mutants roam the streets ready to be blasted with your weapons. Completing side missions and exploring unlocks new implements of destruction and other incentives. Even at this early stage in development, Sunset City looks like a promising open-world environment with lots of fun things to do on par with heavy hitters like Infamous and Batman: Arkham City.
