It's good news for console gamers who might have be interested in taking the plunge into the PC-only shooter/MMO "Planetside 2," while "DC Universe Online" makes the leap from one shiny Sony box to another.
It's not just a simple bank heist in the first episode of this web series based on the upcoming "Payday 2" directed by filmmaker Demian Lichtenstein.
The first trailer from the upcoming mystery game for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC captures that one terrible moment when you realize you're already dead.
In their latest move to rebrand the 2012 fighter (beyond "complete" releases for the Vita and and another for consoles in the fall), Team Ninja and publisher Tecmo Koei plan to release a four-fighter, free-to-play version of "Dead or Alive Ultimate" to PSN in September.
The vengeful ninja from hell is coming to the DC Comics fighting game with a new look courtesy of the comic company's Co-Publisher, Jim Lee.
Lee was instrumental in the armor-heavy redesigns of the updated DC universe, and he's brought the same aesthetic to the "Mortal Kombat" anti-hero. If you're familiar with his traditional design, all of the cloth elements have been replaced with segmented armor pieces--a look I can take or leave at this point, honestly.
After the jump, listen to Lee and Netherrealms Creative Director Ed Boon talk about the new look and origins of Scorpion in the "Injustice."
The Oval Office gets a "Saints Row"-style facelift with the announcement of the official box art for "Saints Row IV!" Check out the full cover in all its purple glory after the jump.
"Remember Me" is a game about loss and redemption in a society that has opted out of privacy in favor of blissful ignorance thanks to a revolutionary device that can digitize memories which can be shared and wiped. In this brave new world, these memories act as commodities to be bought, bargained, and sold for all your wants and needs. Nothing is secret and no memory is painful anymore -- the ideal of a Utopian society that shares all its thoughts while simply erasing the bad ones. However, an underground movement, started by a group calling itself "Errorists," believe that humanity is heading in the wrong direction and the privileged few aren't seeing the full picture. There's a dark side, you'll see, to messing around in people's noggins and it's not very pretty. This is all set up for our amnesiac protagonist, Nilin, to dole out justice against the evil Memorize corporation, save the forgotten populace of Neo-Paris, and win back her memories.
Dontnod Entertainment taps popular sci-fi themes and setting spanning everything from Total Recall to Blade Runner to Fifth Element with gameplay infusing "Batman: Arkham City" with "Uncharted." It's a lofty set of ideas that mostly fits together as a young studio attempts to embed itself into the minds of gamers.
Memorize, the evil company at the heart of Dontond's "Remember Me," make their pitch for a better future through erasing and editing memories. But some memories are harder to get rid of as we see the game's heroine, Nilin, being caught and dragged to the Bastille for what is likely an experience she won't want to remember.
Hey, at least there's cake. I think.
