So we have new footage of Mighty No. 9‘s early alpha gameplay. The fact that this is early alpha should definitely be kept in mind with this video, as there are many cheaply-made textures, poor animations, and a (subjectively) ugly art style. On the bright side though, the gameplay itself actually looks pretty good, pretty much exactly what you would expect a 3D Mega Man game to look and play like. Certain things like dashing looked like they came straight out of Mega Man X, and that’s sure to please some.

For those that missed other recent news about the game; an animated series is being made, much to the anger of those who donated to the kickstarter. Now, one may think that more things produced through the Kickstarter is a good thing, but the way that many see it is that they donated to have a game made, and money is going toward other things now, which can be viewed as false advertising and fraud. To reassure the people though, Comcept has set new stretch goals for the Kickstarter, saying that only the money raised here will be used for the animated series.

Over the course of nine months, TellTale games has released the five episodes of The Wolf Among Us. Recently the fifth and final episode released to give the conclusion to the mystery that players have been leading Bigby Wolf through all this time.

For those not in the know, The Wolf Among Us is a story-driven point-and-click adventure (similar to The Walking Dead) based on the Fables comic series. The game takes place 20 years before the events of the comics, so in a way it works as kind of a setup for some of the characters and events that happen in the comic series. So how does the game stand up on its own and as a prequel?

Let’s face it: pessimism is louder than optimism. This is particularly true for the game industry. A developer will announce a game that fans have been clamoring to see for years, only to be faced with staunch opposition and criticism upon said announcement. Consoles will be released after tons of pre-release fanfare and then flounder once they hit store shelves. Resistance against the norm is what keeps this industry moving forward and while conflict is always good for innovation, hostilities can sometimes drown out even the best of products. Playstation Vita and Nintendo 3DS know this lesson all too well. Both systems encountered poor retail launches, severe game droughts and continued rampant fanboyism that will often claim “doom” at the sign of any trouble. However, while both of these systems have faced their fair share of adversity, Vita and 3DS have managed to mold themselves into compelling products over the past year. So, for a moment, let’s drown the cynicism and throw enthusiasm a lifesaver. Here’s why the video game handhelds of today deserve your hard-earned simoleons. Read the rest of this entry »

If you are a gamer who has never heard of Falcom before today then you have probably missed out on one of the most interesting action RPG franchises of the past 25 years.  The Ys series has always been a unique blend of blue haired Anime girls, red headed heroes, and insanely catchy music. With the series hitting its 25th anniversary this year it is no surprise that Falcom would try to fix one of the most confusing releases in history, Ys IV.

Foliage Oceans in Celceta is to be the definitive canonical release tying together both Dawn of Ys, and Mask of the Sun into one uniquely crafted title. While also taking the time to update it to HD graphics, and bring it to the newest handheld on the market, the PlayStation Vita.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, the PlayStation Vita has been lacking game releases since it was launched, so what are the chances we would get this insanely Japanese title stateside? It is more likely than you would think due to publishers like XSEED who have worked with Falcom in the past to bring over the series previous iterations onto the PSP and the PC. While no one has picked up the publishing rights for the title at the moment, XSEED, is our best bet.

I just read this article on Kotaku and I have to say I’m simultaneously disappointed and relieved. Disappointed because Ubisoft, like many other developers before it are planning to turn a $60 game into a $100+ game (assuming you buy the standard edition, and not one of the many other pricier collector editions.)

Yes, according to what I read, Assassin’s Creed 3 is getting a season pass. What does this mean? It means Ubisoft expects you, the consumer, to buy their game, and then pay to unlock future content, but make you feel like you’re getting some kind of deal by purchasing both the game and the season pass together.

A season pass doesn’t even make sense for a game like Assassin’s Creed. Its multiplayer components are easily dwarfed by just about any other multiplayer title, and although Ubisoft has made great strides to expand upon it, I’ve never found myself compelled to play it for any great length of time. So does this mean Ubisoft is holding single-player content hostage? Perhaps. Read the rest of this entry »

Konami has released some new screenshots in English for the upcoming downloadable Vita game, New Little King’s Story, which is a sequel to the 2009 Wii title of the same name.

The game puts you into an RPG adventure mixed with strategy elements in which you must save the various kingdoms of the land, rescue the princess, and defeat the Devil King. Aside from the graphical overhaul, this sequel uses both front and back touch controls, and also includes various online features as well.

New Little King’s Story is set to release on the PSN for the Playstation Vita sometime this Summer. You can check out the rest of the adorable screenshots after the break.
