Birthdays Is An Intriguing Simulation Game From Harvest Moon’s Mastermind

Yasuhiro Wada is best known as the creator of the Bokujō Monogatari games, which has been known as the Harvest Moon series in North America until recently. Now it goes by the name Story of Seasons, due to Natsume owning the Harvest Moon name, and Xseed taking over as publisher in English-speaking countries. Wada has since branched off from the series, and his latest project is called Birthdays The Beginnings (working title). In it, you manipulate the environment to evolve different organisms, from plants to mammals. While at TGS, Wada graciously demoed Birthdays for us, and so far it’s shaping up to be an intriguing world-building simulation game. 

Wada was inspired by games like SimCity and SimEarth, but he formed the idea for his latest game from a popular Japanese anime character named Doraemon. At one point, Doraemon gets an earth spray that allows him the power to create lifeforms. Wada thought it would be an interesting concept for game if you acted as a god altering the world and seeing the chain reactions before you in its evolution.

Resident Evil 7 Gets Another Demo, Trailer, Post-Launch Episode

Apparently, Capcom couldn't contain Resident Evil 7: Biohazard to its planned format. The publisher has announced that the game's post-launch story episodes are growing by one, increasing the tally to three. If you've already preordered the deluxe edition, you're set, but otherwise you'll have to pony up a little extra cash. Ten bucks, to be exact.

The deluxe edition of the game includes a season pass for the additional content, and it's now priced at $89.99. That gets you the game when it launches January 24, as well as the three other episodes. Both it and standard pre-orders include a survival pack, which includes a lucky coin defense item and healing items; early access to the game's madhouse mode; and, for PlayStation 4 pre-orders, a dynamic PS4 theme.

You can see a new trailer for the game below, but if you're eager to get your hands on some new RE7 action, you're in luck. The game's PS4 demo has been updated to what Capcom is calling a Twilight version of the game, which includes new areas to explore in the mansion. Presumably, none of which are populated with sparkly vampires.

Hands-On With The Last Guardian’s Beautiful Struggle

Hands-On With The Last Guardian’s Beautiful Struggle

It’s said that patience is a virtue... and The Last Guardian has made its fans incredibly virtuous. The game has been in development for nearly a decade, and just when a release date was set at this past E3, a recent delay to December 6 is making gamers wait just a little more. I recently went hands-on with the game, playing a new portion that takes place right after the E3 demo. Fittingly enough, I discovered a game experience that also requires patience, but not in a frustrating way. Instead it’s more serene as you slowly discover how to get around in this strange world with your only ally, a mammoth beast. The Last Guardian isn’t a game that you just tear through without a second thought, and that’s what makes it special.
