by: Nathan - - 0 Comments

Sony held an event in Japan today and Capcom officially confirmed the worst kept secret in the industry today. Yep, Resident Evil Revelations 2 is real and its coming in 2015 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC. Poor Wii U. Unfortunately no other details were revealed, but they did release a teaser trailer for the game that you can view below. 

Also shown was the first trailer for the Resident Evil re-release coming for the PS4, PS3.... well everything you would it expect to be on. Not on Wii U of course. Anyways, the Resident Evil remake that was originally released on the Gamecube is one of my favorite survival horror games of all time. I remember me and my friend having speed runs to see who could get the lowest time. I think I got mine down to 2 hours at one point. 

Check out the trailers below.

Bummed that Evolve was delayed until next February?  Well you might have the chance to play the game this year as the team at Turtle Beach announced this weekend that they will be doing a second alpha in the near future.

There aren't a lot of details around when the beta will start or what platforms the beta will appear on but you'll want to keep an eye on the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the game for more information about gaining access to the beta.

The folks at Positech Games (well, folk as the company is a one man show) have been busy working on their new game Gratuitous Space Battles 2.  The original game was something that Tom really dug and the first footage from the new game looks pretty solid.

The new game allows for players to create and upload fleets of ships that can be sent out to do battle with other players on the internet as well as bevy of other improvements and tweaks.  Be sure to check out the website for the game for more info as well as to pre-order a copy of the game.

This Thursday, Star Gem's Free-to-Play MMO Star Conflict is waking from it's beta-slumber and making itself available to the masses. Right now, players that earn the in-game achievements "Detachment of Prometheus" and "The Voyage of the Galaxy" get closed beta access to Invasion Mode; where players team up to fend on an invading alien force in a series of quests, PvP and PvE battles. For the next week, those closed beta players can win prizes and stock up on supplies in the pre-launch sale.

Launching September 4th, Star Conflict is an MMO that takes place in a dead sector of space that is rife with ancient ruins of the long-deceased Precursor civilization. As an elite pilot, you will join one of the factions of star empires or independent mercenary groups and fight against other players over the lost treasures hidden throughout the sector.

GOG.com introduces DRM-free movies, cuts 35 games, freshens up its design

by: Randy - - 0 Comments

GOG.com added video game documentaries to its library of good old games. Twenty of them. Bigger-name titles like Indie Game: The Movie, Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, and Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony are up there, along with, well, to tell you the truth, about 17 other films I've never heard of, though they're all dedicated to gamer and internet culture in one way or another. They all come with GOG.com's touted DRM-free guarantees.

In addition to movies, GOG.com did a few other things to spruce up around the place, too. The front page and item-detail pages are rearranged nicely. There are new currencies you can pay with—if you happen to have more euros, pounds, or roubles in your piggy bank than U.S. dollars. You can now also pay with some things called Sofort, Giropay, Webmoney, and Yandex, and I know this makes me sound like an old codger, but all of those sound pretty suspicious to me.

They've also got to drop 35 titles from their library, so they're doing it with a few big, last-minute discounts. Act fast, though. There's no explanation of why they're dropping these particular games. Most all of them are highly rated, like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive, and Gothic 2, so I don't know who's pulling the plug or why.

Either way, the place looks nice and a little brighter now. I'm still anxious, however, for them to bring about GOG.com Galaxy, their upcoming (completely optional) Steam-like client.

Bergeron and Marchand take part in the most unique TV spots for NHL 15

by: Sean Cahill - - 0 Comments

Who says hockey players don't have an artistic side?

NHL 15 cover boy Patrice Bergeron and his teammate, Brad Marchand, star in two of the most unique advertisements, just in time for the launch of NHL 15 on September 9.

It's hard to really explain just what these commercials are.  Perhaps we can call them an ode to hockey?  Either way, expressing one's love for hockey comes in all different forms, and while these advertisements are sure to catch fans of the NHL interest, I think it's safe to say that they shouldn't quit their day jobs.

Check out the TV spots below and feel better knowing that we're just nine days away from launch.

Everything to know about the New 3DS...so far

by: Sean Colleli - - 0 Comments

The friendly people over at Nintendolife have a new article that assembles everything that has been revealed so far about the New 3DS. Nintendo's latest hardware refresh for their successful portable has a number of improvements, changes and new features, so this is a useful article if you wanted to know how the new models compare to the old 3DS and XL in terms of size, power and controls. Personally I'm most excited about the second analog C-stick and the build-in NFC.

Catch Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in the (roman) bath...[Trailer]

by: Ben Berry - - 0 Comments

I'm actually pretty excited for Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments; the story line I've seen thus far is intriguing, they actually have a game mechanic to used Holmes famed powers of observation (as is highlighted in this video), and it's a little bit off, as a detective addicted to opiates ought to be. The new trailer features a quick interrogation of a bath attendant. It doesn't give away much in terms of the plot, while focusing on the observation and conversation mechanisms. The voice acting and animation are definitely on point in this game.

Meet Ratbag, the best named character in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

by: Ben Berry - - 0 Comments

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor has a new trailer that shows some new footage involving Uruk orcs, and specifically an NPC named Ratbag (yes, Ratbag, isn't that awesome?) that can potentially play a role in Talion's journey. Some of this also highlights the "nemesis" feature, which the press releases have been pointing out is one of the selling points of the game.

As with all timed exclusives the one around Peggle 2 will expire next month as EA announced during PAX 2014 that the game will be coming to the PlayStation 4 on October 14th.

The PS4 version will be the exact release that the Xbox One and Xbox 360 players have been enjoying for the last few months.  That's not a bad thing as Peggle 2 was a pretty solid (if safe) experience from looking that review scores when it came out.
