Old-School Goodness Is Abound In Shovel Knight

The newly formed development studio Yacht Club Games has finally announced their debut project and yes, it’s seeking funding via the Kickstarter route. Coming to us from the former WayForward filled team that is Yacht Club Games is Shovel Knight – a new ode to the 8-bit era that will make us older gamers all nostalgic.

New Fast & Furious Game Set To Arrive Soon

Our dreams may finally be close to becoming a reality since a game based upon the Fast & Furious franchise is seemingly upon us.  Starting out as a mere street based racing film way back in 2001, the Fast & Furious franchise has gone on to become one of the premier action film franchises due to stories and scenes that are so dumb and insane that it’s hard not to find them appealing.  Now the ever chiseled visage of Vin Diesel may be appearing in a new Fast & Furious game from none other than Activision. Yup, good old Acti is at it once again.

Spec Ops: The Line Developers Prep New Game, Tease Announcement Soon

The team behind the daring and rather intense action/drama Spec Ops: The Line are on the cusp of announcing their next project.  We’ve already known that Yager have been working on something once Spec Ops finally arrived at retail last Summer, but now we have a few more details on the project and a tease of things to come.

Drakengard Returns With New Sequel

Square Enix is dipping back into one of their more popular catalog titles to deliver a new sequel. No, we’re not going to receive yet another pointless Final Fantasy title as the shocking announcement is that of a new Drakengard title for the PlayStation 3.

Indie Love - East Side Games

Vancouver’s East Side Games launched themselves from the arguably inauspicious beginnings of Pot Farm to become a stable, successful, and growing indie shop currently approaching the ripe old age of two. Their success is owed partially to an experienced management team, partially to the company culture that empowers decisions at all levels of the organization, and (I think you’ll agree) more than a little to the moxie from passionate game developers like Josh Nilson, COO of East Side Games and the person providing the answers to our questions.

 

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons Is Detailed In New Walkthrough Video

Seeing an established developer branch out a bit is always nice, but we rarely see a studio go from a heritage of dark FPS titles filled with good old-fashioned ultra-violence and then suddenly do a platformer/puzzle title with a friendly exterior. Yet such a thing is the case for the new game from Starbreeze, Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons.

Gore Verbinski's XBLA Game Matter Canned By Microsoft

Last week we saw one Hollywood titan exit the video game industry after an effort that was far from fruitful, and we have news of another unexpected development.  After Jerry Bruckheimer decided to shutter his games division after being in existence for five years, during which no games were ever released/created under the label, word has surfaced which points to Microsoft ending their partnership with acclaimed film director Gore Verbinski.

Lost Planet 3 Shows A More Dramatic Side In This New Trailer + Release Date Revealed

Capcom’s somewhat unexpected reboot/sequel of the Lost Planet series has emerged once again after a brief absence. Not seen since E3 2012, some had wondered if things had gone terribly wrong with Lost Planet 3 due to the radio silence both by Capcom and Spark Unlimited. Yet here we are once again graced by the new everyman hero of Lost Planet 3 along with news of when the game will arrive.

Small Update Given For New Tomb Raider Movie

Perhaps poised to go nowhere due to the politics of making a film and whether or not the game is truly a success, a minor update has been given concerning the new Tomb Raider movie.

After two live-action entries featuring Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft were released during the original heyday of the Tomb Raider franchise, production company GK Films announced their plans to do a new Tomb Raider movie to coincide with Square Enix’s video game reboot.

The Indie Brawler That Is Aztez Surfaces Again [Video]

Ever a fan of smaller titles of an indie nature, I’ve had my eye on one game in particular when it comes to satisfying my need for brutal and fast combat.  Always a hard thing to do, nailing the feel of combat within a game isn’t an easy feat yet the developers at Team Colorblind seem to have done such a thing with Aztez.

Next Resident Evil Movie Given Release Date

The sixth, and presumably last, Resident Evil movie has now been given a release date. While an official announcement has yet to be made with the typical vague PR details meant to hype things up, ShockTilYouDrop is reporting that Sony Pictures has given Resident Evil 6 a September 12, 2014 release date.

Confusion may be abound upon seeing the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game from Activision.

Diggs Nightcrawler Will Soon Arrive On Sony's Wonderbook

The next title for Sony’s unique Wonderbook device has finally been revealed. While a few titles and partners have been previously revealed as part of the Wonderbook initiative, such as the BBC and Disney, Sony has nonetheless been quiet on the matter after the release of Wonderbook: Book of Spells, which despite its magical premise failed to gather much of an audience in the North American market.

Another Hollywood Figure Bails Out Of The Games Industry

Yet another endeavor in the video game space by a prominent figure from Hollywood has resulted in nothing, thus showing once again that not everyone is suited to work in the world of video games.  Keen followers of the video game industry may remember a while back ago prominent Hollywood film producer Jerry Bruckheimer announced that he was venturing into the video game arena.

New Cast Member Announced For Beyond: Two Souls + Release Date

Since being unveiled at E3 last year details on Beyond: Two Souls have been rather scarce.  Sony has shown the new game from Quantic Dream here and there, but we’ve been missing on key announcements such as the remaining cast and when the game would finally grace us with its presence. Now Sony has announced a key actor set to appear in Beyond as well as when we can finally pop it into our PlayStation 3.

Star Wars 1313 Reportedly On Hold [Rumor]

Even though it’s one of the most recognizable and popular franchises in the world, Star Wars simply can’t catch a break when it comes to the world of video games.  After starting out strong in the mid 1990s, the Star Wars franchise has slowly declined in recent years through a derth of interesting releases. Now there's another disturbance in the Force which could result in yet another Star Wars being cancelled.

Quantum Conundrum and Papo & Yo Developers Join Ouya With New Software

The PlayStation 4 may have our undivided attention right now, but we shouldn’t forget or entirely write off the Ouya.  Likely not destined to match the instant appeal that Sony has gathered for their new console, the Ouya is nonetheless gathering steam based on these latest announcements.

Gran Turismo 6 May Not Appear On PlayStation 4 [Rumor]

Something could be amiss in the world of Gran Turismo which may not please the many members of the racing elite.  After the stumbling that Gran Turismo 5 went through in part to a shoddy online infrastructure and gamers being less than happy about certain elements, the next installment in Polyphony Digital’s ode to racing may arrive without the next-gen sheen that we all expected it would.

New PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC Includes A Space Engineer and A God

Despite SuperBot Entertainment and Sony parting ways out of nowhere, the DLC plans for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale aren’t being given the boot – at least for now.  After the arrival of the Fury Level and the arrival of Kat (Gravity Rush) and Emmett (Starhawk) as playable characters, PS All-Stars is set to receive yet another new level mash-up and two more characters.
