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 ...

 

Lord of the Rings Online: Helm’s Deep Expansion Announced

blank Warner Brothers have today announced the next expansion for Lord of the Rings Online. Helm’s Deep will let players take an important role in the famous battle alongside the likes of Théoden, while also expanding the virtual world of Middle-Earth to the west of Rohan. If that’s not enough, you’ll also be able to continue to level your character for a further 10 levels, right up to 95. Along with the new locations, new missions, new role in The Lord…

 
 

PSA: Guilty Gear Trailer Lied, Title DOESN’T Have Online Play

blank This is a strange one. Guilty Gear for the Vita came out in the US yesterday, and despite mention on its PlayStation page of online play, as well as reference to it in the original trailer, the game actually relies on Ad Hoc mode to handle its multiplayer. Why the developers put out a trailer implying otherwise, and why Sony are advertising it as online-capable is unclear, but if you were planning to buy based on the idea of playing…

 

Phil Fish is at it Again: “You should Boycott Harder, Nerds”

blank Fez may have been an above average game with a great idea behind it, but the biggest name behind the game, Phil Fish, sure as hell knows how to separate himself from his fanbase. After early reports that the game itself runs incredibly badly on PC (it renders at 720p and has Xbox 360 controller images regardless of how you’re playing the game), and talk of the Steam release being boycotted thanks to Fish’s poor customer relations, the fact that…

 

Naruto Shippuden UNS 3: 1.2 million copies sold worldwide

blank Following the recent release of Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 in Japan , Namco Bandai took the opportunity to announce that their game has shipped over 1.2 million copies worldwide. This is the fastest selling game in the franchise so far. It's a huge success for CyberConnect2, who are currently working on Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle for PS3 and Solatorobo 2 on 3DS.

 
 

Deadly Premonition – Director’s Cut Launch Trailer

blank Deadly Premonition was something of a mixed bag when it was first released on Xbox 360 in 2010. While much of what made it a game - the graphics and controls specifically - suffered from a severe ability to underwhelm, the story and depth of the characters in the world were pretty much unlike anything else available. Like Twin Peaks with a touch of The X-Files, it managed to make you invest in the people of Greenvale regardless of the roughness of the gameplay itself. This led to incredibly ...
