Leviathan: Warships Launches Today

blank I thought I'd seen the weirdest trailer of the day after watching the Killer is Dead trailer, but it's been topped. Leviathan: Warships, a real-time naval combat title from Paradox and Pieces Interactive, has you battle boats with up to three friends. Exactly how the marketing department got from that to the above video is beyond me, but it's still pretty much the funniest thing I've seen all day. "I'm not buying this ship."

blank Lex Laser Saves the Galaxy, Again is a tactical puzzle RPG for Windows, Linux and Mac, with a tentative release date of the first half of 2014. Currently on Kickstarter, the team from Defiant Mouse are working towards gathering $65,000 towards the finished project, and are currently around 18% there.

New Killer Is Dead Trailer “Reveals” All

blank Suda 51 is at it again. The latest trailer for Killer is Dead shows off the many women lead Mondo Zappa will meet over the course of his adventure. Whether flying around on magical needles or acting the femme fatale, it's going to be interesting to see how these crazy exaggerated characters and romantic entanglements work out. And of course, if they don't work out, there's always the Gigolo Glass.

 

Too Trusting, Dumb or Just Gullible? – What the Fake Phantom Pain Video Says about Gamers

blank The Phantom Pain: Project Deception video is fake. The person who created it has given it all up in the YouTube comments of their latest video. His last two submissions on N4G have been massively successful stories about his video (although there doesn't seem to be a specific link between him and the writers who wrote those articles). He even took to IGN, defending the video and egging people on. This is a person who has deceived under the guise of some sort of social experiment.

 

Metro: Last Light ‘Redemption’ Trailer

blank If there was one thing you could say about Metro 2033, it's that it looked fantastic. Whatever other complaints you may have had, it was graphically beyond more or less anything else out there. It's nice to see Last Light seems to be going the same way. The trailer above, entitled Redeption, sets the scene nicely, whilst showing off the great visual quality (although limited to 720p) and occasional battle scene.

 
 

New Wu Characters Announced for Dynasty Warriors 8

blank Koei have today revealed two new characters from the upcoming Dynasty Warriors 8. Both have been a part of the series since Dynasty Warriors 2, but this is the first time they’ve had specific character models and move sets, an important step forward considering their roles within Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Lu Su, the gentleman in the hat from the picture below, was a tactician for Wu, who ended up as Commander-in-Chief after Zhou Yu died. Han Dang was…

 

Best Anti-Piracy Measure Ever? – Game Dev Tycoon Pirates the Pirates

blank When the developers behind Game Dev Tycoon released a cracked version of their own game, they edited it so that the game performed in a slightly different way. Sooner or later, the player will begin to notice that their funds are dwindling and that their best games aren’t bringing in the money that they should. Why? Because their games are being pirated.  As their funds gradually decline, a message appears: “While many players play our new game, they steal it…

 

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Runs at 30FPS

blank The original Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii ran at a smooth 60FPS, an impressive feat considering the hardware and just how good that game looked. The 3DS port, coming next month, is instead locked at 30FPS. This isn't a good thing, but considering that the graphics still look great and that there's plenty happening on screen at any given time, it's hard to complain too much.

 
 

Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut worse than 360 Original

blank While the PS3 Director’s Cut for Deadly Premonition is once again splitting critics, one thing is certain: the improvements hardly make a double-dip worth it. In fact, improvements may be a slight over-exaggeration, as users have found that certain parts of the game are worse than in the original 360 release. Although players are happy with improvements to the controls – especially on foot – it would seem the graphical improvements are largely neither here nor there, and ...
