  7. Yep. It has already begun. I ain't wasting time. I'll let you guys enjoy the playthrough of Gravity Rush 2. It's also on vidme too: https://vid.me/g7H0
  8. 2016 has been a rather unexpected year when it comes to gaming. We’ve had good games, bad games, disappointing games and games that end up getting canned for one reason or another. Regardless, it’s time for a list and it’s not going to be an easy one. I’m not limiting this to just Nintendo games. I’m involving all sorts of games so without further ado, these are my Top 10 Games of 2016. Word of warning for everyone… if you find that a game you like isn’t on the list, you are welcome to make your own and share it. I won’t judge you and remember, the only opinion that should ever matter is your own. Let us begin. 10) Song of the Deep - PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC Kicking off the list we have Song of the Deep, developed and published by Insomniac Games. Song of the Deep is basically Metroid but in an underwater style. I will admit. This game had me intrigued because of its design and presentation. When I got to play it, it was a sight to behold. The presentation for it is incredible with the level of detail to be intense. It’s gameplay leaves a lot to be desired but it fits the world that this game is. Not to mention it’s a bit too simple and short, around 4 hours. I’ll cut some slack since the game is rather cheap and there’s replay value to back it up. This game deserves a bit more appreciation. Sure it’s not the best but for what it’s worth, it’s a soothing and satisfying experience. I recommend that you pick the game up, at least to see for yourself how good it is. It’s $10! It’s not the best but I feel that it deserves to be #10 on my list. 9) Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS - Nintendo 3DS To think that Nintendo would take a risk and bring a game like this to their best-selling handheld is a challenge onto itself. But for its shortcomings, I say that they did a good job. Mario Maker for 3DS is what it is, a port of a game that was on Wii U now fit on the handheld. Nothing more. Nothing less. The only problems I have with the game is that there’s no Amiibo functionality, you can’t play others courses or share courses online and the only way you can share them is through its Streetpass function. But despite its negatives, the game is still really fun and can even push your skills as a gamer/level creator to the test. Had this game allowed you to share courses online and play others’ from the get-go, it’d be rated higher. I recommend playing this on a New 3DS XL because, on a regular 3DS, you can experience crashes. I just want to give you a heads up. 8) Final Fantasy XV - PlayStation 4, Xbox One (PC coming soon) We waited a long time for this game. It originally was going to be part of the Fabula Nova Crystalis as Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Unfortunately, it was scrapped and then replaced with this. The wait was long but in the end is worth it. Final Fantasy XV is a great game. Its strong points are the gameplay, the open world location and the many things you can do in this said world. My problems with the game are its lackluster story and the characters. The four protagonists are fleshed out well enough but everything else feels flat. Made worse is that in order to better understand this, you need to watch stuff that’s outside the game like the film Kingsglaive and OVA Brotherhood. Other than that, I couldn’t find anything else wrong but at least Square-Enix is dedicated to making the game better while filling up story bits that should have been added. Thankfully I’m happy with that and it shows that they really want to make the game feel complete. I recommend giving this game a chance. Besides once the negatives are pushed aside, you have a game that’s very satisfying. 7) Overwatch – PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC Blizzard has a lot of balls for trying their luck in the first-person shooter genre and it paid off considerably with this game. Overwatch is just that: a first-person shooter game where you and five others can take the fight against the opposition in various modes. They range from escort/stop the payload to capturing defensive points/objectives on the map. Okay. It’s a bit small but that’s not why it’s on the list. Overwatch’s strong points are its setting and characters. No two characters are similar. Each character offers something different and that’s what makes it good. Coupled with the fact that there’s a lot to do in this game, it’s nuts. We already got two new characters, a whole bunch of new modes and events and knowing what 2017 has in store, it’s going to get better. This game is better played if you have friends because it’s all the more satisfying when you achieve victory. I ask you… are you with me? 6) Paper Mario: Color Splash – Nintendo Wii U I know what you’re thinking. Why is this game on the list? Let me explain. Sure this game uses the same style as Paper Mario: Sticker Star but that’s pretty much it. Why it’s on my list because it is a much better game. Design wise, it is awesome. It is a step up from the previous game and the theme involving paint and colors adds it in perfectly. You can tell when you travel through Prisma Island. The addition of restoring the world through paint offers something different. Using cards instead of stickers is a lot better. The humor this game has is spot on with some being very funny to listen. Color Splash offers a lot here and I say it is miles better especially since it’s released on a system that’s on its deathbed. I only wish that Nintendo could go back to its roots with the game offering what it should be, instead of this. But for what it’s worth, I say it’s a must buy. Truthfully it is a must buy and I recommend this game. Enjoying the list so far? Good because we’re now reaching the halfway point of this list. There’s no going back for us now. 5) Fire Emblem Fates – Nintendo 3DS Three years after the release of Fire Emblem: Awakening, we get a game that not only is good but offers so much. I’m talking about Fire Emblem Fates and I speak on behalf of everything the game offers. What’s different from the previous games is its branching campaigns. You play as Corrin, a young noble who was born in the kingdom of Hoshido but was raised by the kingdom of Nohr. When both kingdoms declare war on each other, you have to make a choice on whose family you would side. Should you side with Hoshido, the kingdom you were born in as your Birthright. Should you side with Nohr, the kingdom that raised you and follows the side of Conquest. Or will you choose neither side and instead work to have both kingdoms unite under one banner and learn of a Revelation that threatens all. That is what makes the game stand out. The three campaigns: Birthright, Conquest, and Revelation offer hours of gameplay and customization that can drive you nuts. Replay value here is through the roof, along with additional content via DLC drives it even further. I won’t go into too much detail but if you haven’t picked up this game, you should. I recommend trying your luck to get the Special Edition of the game, which has all 3 campaigns in one DLC. But if you are getting either Birthright or Conquest, expect to spend a lot just to get the rest. It’s why this game gets the #5 on my slot on this list. 4) Gravity Rush Remastered – PlayStation 4 In 2012, a game called Gravity Rush was released on the PlayStation Vita. It was a game that was fun, different and offered something new. Sadly not many people got to play it due to being released on a handheld that Sony never gave a damn about. Four years later, SCE Studio and Project Siren bring this game over to the PlayStation 4 and my god, it is incredible. Gravity Rush Remastered is marvelous. Seeing the game in glorious HD is jaw dropping. It's nuts! What’s even better is that it runs at a solid 60 frames per second. Flawless 60fps. It is perfect. They also refined the game’s controls making things such as sliding across the city seamless. You can use the back buttons on the PS4 controller but there’s also the option to use the DualShock 4’s motion controls so it offers some variety for players. What’s even better is that the Remastered port includes all the DLC for the game and at a price of $30, how can you say no to that? You simply can’t. This game is what made the PlayStation Vita stand out but now that it’s on a PS4, it’s the go-to game for anyone wanting this console. I highly recommend it. It is a must buy, without a doubt and it should prep anyone for the eventual release of Gravity Rush 2 coming in January. 3) Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita and PC WayForward should be praised and commended for making a game like this. Not a lot of people are going to like having this as my #3 spot but this is a perfect example of a Kickstarter campaign done right, aside from Shovel Knight. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is amazing. There is so much good to say here such as the presentation. Design-wise, it’s a step up from the previous game. 2.5D at its finest with the character models being at its absolute best. Jake Kaufman does it again with the music here and all the tracks are addicting to listen to. Very addicting. The gameplay is similar to the first two games but it’s improved and easy enough for anyone to pick up and play. Hopefully, with the upcoming DLC like Risky Boots’ campaign, Half-Genie Hero is going to be one that’s worth every penny. Show love to WayForward. Get this game now! 2) Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice – Nintendo 3DS The Ace Attorney series has endured for more than 15 years with a strong and devoted following. 2013’s Dual Destinies is one a lot of people were hyped for and though nowadays is a bit mixed it was a welcome addition. Three years later, Phoenix Wright returns in full force with the sixth game in the main franchise: Spirit of Justice. Similar to the previous entries, it’s a visual novel style game where as Phoenix Wright (or any of the others like Apollo & Athena) you must investigate witnesses, find evidence and discover the truth through the courts. This time around, the story takes Phoenix to the Kingdom of Khura’in and in that country, defense attorneys are outlawed. Spirit of Justice introduces the Divination Seances where it details the last thing the victim sees before they pass on. But the truth isn’t always black and white. That’s where we come in to figure out if what the victim sees is the truth or not. Many staples that are prevalent in the previous entries return here but its biggest points are its story and music. The story is a bit dark and intense for a game like this and the music is still its shining moment. Believe me, there are some tracks that are incredible to listen to. Whereas Dual Destinies serves as a return to form for the well-respected attorney, Spirit of Justice serves as a passing of the torch for Apollo Justice, allowing him to take the spotlight he deserves. It’s reason enough why this gets the #2 spot. 1) Pokémon Sun & Moon – Nintendo 3DS Some people like the game, others didn't. To tell you the truth, I enjoyed the game. As a fan of Pokémon since Generation 1, I had a lot of expectations. They paid off when it came out. Nintendo, GameFreak & The Pokemon Company took a lot of risks in making this stand out over the previous generations. Removing some staples like Gyms, HMs seems crazy when you think about it. However, when I got to play it for myself, I can say is wow… they nailed it. The game does hold your hand a lot at times but you do get the chance to explore at your leisure. The Island Challenges are interesting and provide something different instead of going to a gym and earning a badge. It’s emphasized a lot and I like it personally. Z-Moves are also cool and how they look is amazing. But if I were to net any nitpicks, it’s the story. That leaves a lot to be desired. I wish it can improve but at least the game is still the way you remember it. Pokemon Sun & Moon may not be for everyone but for those that put the time into it, it’s a pretty awesome game. I recommend it and yes, it’s one that I feel should be #1 on my list. Honorable Mentions: Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, Pokken Tournament, Yo-Kai Watch 2 Bony Spirits & Fleshy Souls, Ratchet & Clank PS4, Kirby: Planet Robobot That’s pretty much it for this list. Remember, my list is 100% opinionated and you are welcome to disagree with me. If you guys have a list of your own Top 10s or if you feel that a game you played should be on the list, let me know in the comments. I look forward to hearing from everyone.

Watch Dogs 2 And The Steam Users Who Hate Black People Speaking of the above, Jim Sterling takes a look at how not having a white protagonist has effected the games forums (developers really need to hire moderators and community managers).

GameFront is Closing Down April 30, 2016 Gamefront is owned by Defy Media which has recently been shutting down or laying off staff at other game related websites they own, such as GameTrailers and The Escapist. Mod DB users are attempting to download and save the mods that might otherwise be lost with the closure of GameFront, which was written about in an article, "Help save 17 years of PC game modding history". The possible loss of these mods again shows the importance of preserving game history with safe and easily accessible archiving practices.

  18. Sony has officially announced they have shut down the DriveClub developer; Evolution Studios. After a long and tumultuous development, the team released DriveClub, which was released to a fairly mixed critical reception. Critics praised the visuals, sound design, and the controls, but criticized the online playability, and gameplay variety. A year ago, 55 of Evolution's employees were laid-off, but now, Sony has had to make the tough choice in making the rest of Evolution's staff redundant. Sony said it would try to reallocate some of the Evolution team to other studios, but the company's aware that it may also lose some serious talent - "Regular reviews take place throughout SCE Worldwide Studios, ensuring that the resources that we have in such a competitive landscape can create and produce high quality, innovative and commercially viable projects. As part of this process we have reviewed and assessed all current projects and plans for the short and medium term and have decided to make some changes to the European studios structure. As a result, it has been decided that Evolution Studio will close. It is regrettable that this decision will lead to compulsory redundancies. We accept that this decision will mean that we risk losing high calibre staff but by focusing on other Studios that already have exciting new projects in development we believe we will be in a stronger position going forward and able to offer the best possible content of the highest quality for our consumers. Where possible we will try to reallocate people onto other projects. If appropriate opportunities are not possible within the company, we will assist staff in any way we can, including speaking with local employers and with other development companies. Evolution has been an important part of SCE Worldwide Studios for over 10 years - working on ground-breaking racing titles like WRC, Motorstorm and DRIVECLUB. This decision should not take anything away from the great work that Evolution has produced."

  19. Okay, so I read on a few different occasions (Once on Gamefaqs, a few times on youtubes and once or twice on reddit.) that a Demon's Souls Remaster was planned after Dark Souls III. Though, I can't find a single solid/official post on the matter. Being naturally skeptical, I'm not getting my hopes up however I was curious if anyone knew anything about it. Personally, I think a Demon's Souls remaster would be amazing! It's my favourite souls game, but unfortunately I didn't really play it until like two years ago. I didn't have a ps3 and didn't know anyone with one. I was hoping I would just be able to play it on my ps4 but apparently I can't. Why not just put the original in the PS Store or something? Seriously though, I just want to get impaled by this lovable asshole again.
  20. Sony will be trying to boost their lead in the console race and also trying to make for the awful "Powers" talk which bored everyone to tears last year. Now we know a lot of what Sony is showing but this is Sony we are talking about so anything could happen. Known . Uncharted 4 Gameplay Demo . Nation Drake: Collection (Uncharted Remastered) . New Ratchet and Clank . Guerrilla Games (Makers of Killzone) - Horizon RPG . Until Dawn . Volume . No Man's Sky . Indies .Final Fantasy XV .Project Morpheus Rumoured . Dark Souls 3 (could appear at Microsoft's though) . The Last Guardian (come on we had to chuck this in, its tradition) . Star Wars Battlefront ( Sony have a marketing deal on this game) . WILD (Michel Ancel's new game, Unveiled at Gamescon)
  21. Originally, I was going to make the movie about North Korea which is anti-North Korean propaganda inspired by Sergei Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin the 1925 Soviet propaganda movie. Unfortunately, I have to canceled the movie project due to response about Sony received death threat from North Korea which is also cancelled The Interview movie. This movie was supposed to look like Quentin Tarantino-style with humor while set in North Korea. Similar to Team America: World Police. I have about 6 projects. First plot is the North Korean will developing the nuclear weapons and chemical weapons. Second project is the American tourist who visit to North Korea before the tourist was captured and arrested for trespassing without showing passport to North Korean. Then the tourist will try to escape the North Korean slave prison where the tourist was tortured. This plot was based on three American journalists were arrested by North Korean in 2009 and well as three American hikers were arrested by Iranian. Third plot is about the North Korean sleeper agent who invade US homeland by attacking the US military base. This plot was inspired by 2007 Virginia Tech Shooting where South Korean student attacked the education building (in fact, North Korean's real surname was shared the same as killer of Virginia Tech), the 2009 Fort Hood Base Shooting and well as Die Hard film. Fourth was about firing the artillery weapon such as cannon and rocket through the Seoul, South Korea which is likely inspired by 2014 Crimean Conflict where the war between Ukraine vs Russia and 2014 Gaza War where the battle between Israel vs. Hamas in conflict border. Fifth is about North Korean is making ally with Iran, Syria and other totalitarian countries. Then the last one is the soldier will try to be the Rambo by killing whole North Korean army. But the China will also ban the movie for making anti-communism and losing relationship with North Korea for China.
  22. Sony has announced the creation of their own Esports league, PlayStation Official League. Games announced so far to be included with this League. FIFA 15Call of Duty: GhostWar Thunder Along with eventual support of Battlefield: Hardline and many more.
