When it comes to classic LucasArts adventures, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is so good that many people still consider it the true fourth Indy film. A game that can be replayed every couple of years because the story is that good. And LucasArts knew it too, where work on a sequel called 'Indiana Jones and the Iron Phoenix' continued for a number of years before being cancelled. And now thanks to LucasArts vet Aric Wilmunder, we have an artifact worthy of being in a museum.
Activision treated fans at San Diego Comic Con to some fresh Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare gameplay, which the developer Infinity Ward was on hand to introduce as "the Call of Duty game we've always wanted to make". Because sure, World War II is just a small stepping stone towards futuristic sci-fi planetary warfare. Jokes aside, the footage we see is from an early part of the game. The part where earth finds itself under attack. From someone.
Harbingers, a new animated comic series from Blizzard that will lead up to the launch of the next World of Warcraft expansion Legion has debuted its first episode today. Called Harbingers: the Story of Gul’dan the first episode focuses on everyone's most hated Orc, Gul'dan. Who is definitely as bad as you remember. Possibly more so.
Telltale's The Walking Dead series is arguably worlds better than the TV series of the same name. Even though its a video game its character feel more real, they react in ways that are believable, and the dramatic moments carry real weight to them. Which is to say that fans have been waiting patiently for the third season to drop. And with San Diego Comic Con in full swing we now have a few more screens from the upcoming episodic season.
Although they kind of lean on established franchises as much as anyone else in the game, you can't really say that Nintendo keep churning out the same old thing. Which is why the nostalgia-tinged palm-sized NES Classic Mini has been greeted with so much excitement. Of course we want to connect a mini NES to our HDTVs and play old school 8-bit Nintendo games!
Which worked for the Wii, but not so much the Wii U. With a release date of March next year all we know about the mysterious Nintendo NX is that its a new console. From Nintendo. That will be out in eight or so months. And with a release date so soon, we'll probably get to see a full unveiling in the next couple of months. But in the meantime all we have to go on is a few cryptic comments. Like the latest one from Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.
It's not a requirement, but sometimes it takes a certain Japanese flair to bring a sense of chaotic fun to a game. As highlighted with the original Gravity Rush for the PS Vita, which was remastered for PS4 earlier this year. In it players got to control gravity in an action spectacle that was heavily influenced by anime. And the suitably fun and weird choices that come with that. The sequel, Gravity Rush 2, from Sony's Japan Studios is due for release later this year.
And the list does include some familiar words like Falcon and HSV. And Torana! For those that need a reminder Forza Horizon 3 for Xbox One and Windows 10 takes place in a fictionalised version of Australia. And it looks amazing. And now in a exclusive post over at CNET we now have a list of a whopping 150 cars that will feature in the game.
