And it'll be released digitally on August 30. Okay so part of the reason this is being posted is because that headline made us chuckle, but also to remind/let you know that a new feature length Final Fantasy film is being released this year to coincide with the eventual release of Final Fantasy XV. With the weird title 'Kingsglaive' the film has already been released in Japan where it has performed reasonably well at the box office.
That's right, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2 are getting the re-release treatment alongside performance improvements and graphical enhancements. Out this week on Xbox One, PS4, and PC you may remember these games from the mid-2000s as a sort-of beat-em-up Marvel meets Diablo co-operative experience starring a bunch of Marvel heroes. Based on the slightly dusty memory unit housed in KostaBot3000 they were both, "Yeah, okay I guess."
Graphics cards for PCs can be an costly investment. Technology advances pretty steadily and the best part is consumers get to see the results pretty quickly. Which makes purchasing one of the top of the line cards more of an exercise in prototyping the future. Because in terms of sheer size, power consumption, and heat, they can be monsters. None more so than Nvidia's beastly Titan line of cards. And with the recent string of new card announcements from the company comes a new monster. The Titan X.
For those that played South Park: The Stick of Truth, getting on board the hype train for a new South Park flavoured RPG is a no-brainer. Stick of Truth was not only hilarious, but a great RPG to boot. In a new behind the scenes look at the upcoming South Park: The Fractured But Whole, franchise creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone talk candidly about the new game, the reaction to Stick of Truth and the whole superhero theme.
Even though it doesn't really feel like we've been missing out on fresh Sonic the Hedgehog games, 2017 will see two new titles starring everyone's favourite blue hedgehog with decidedly '90s attitude. Celebrating 25 years of Sonic the first title is called Project Sonic, and it's a look at a world in ruins that needs the service of a blue hero. Or two. The second title is called Sonic Mania and will feature new and remixed levels from the classic 16-bit Sonic era.
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!
