This is it. Yakuza 6: Song Of Life now has a definite release date. Sega finally decided to get all the Yakuza games localised, which explained the back-to-back releases of Yakuza 0 early this year, Yakuza Kiwami this month and now Yakuza 6- all have been released in Japan for sometime now.
The latest trailer showcased more bits of gameplay revolving our good natured Yakuza man Kazuma Kiryu. Powered by an all new game engine, entering buildings and fighting goons are now all seamless. And as always, expect the balance of brooding melodrama of the main plot- figuring out what happened to surrogate daughter Haruka- while engaging in silly side activities. You can go harpoon [...]
The good people at Capcom have dropped a new trailer for the widely-anticipated Monster Hunter: World today. It features a new area, the Wildspire Wastes as well as a first look at some new monsters, on top of announcing the return of cool older wise.
Structurally, the Wildspire Wastes fulfills the mandatory “desert zone” requirement of every Monster Hunter game. These maps contain areas of extreme heat, which gradually drain health unless you stock up on cold drinks beforehand. The wastes also seem to have a muddy zone, the function of which we’ll get into later.
The main monster shown off is a returning Baroth. This large brute wyvern has a giant [...]
Ninja Theory’s latest game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is now out on PC and PS4 (though not available yet in Asia for PS4) and one fascinating thing that we now only learned is how high-stakes the game is, possibly. After your first unavoidable death in the game, a warning of sorts appear that warns you that should you let the Pictish warrior Senua die too many times, the black rot on her hands will slowly grow to the head. If it reaches the head, your journey is over.

After a good few months of Chooseys with choices like Life is Strange and Tales From The Borderlands, Sony has finally heard our prayers and granted us the game chooseys pretend to be, Hatoful Boyfriend.
Play as a human girl in an elite school for birds, bonding with the various modern dinosaurs and, hopefully, falling in love. Choose a partner from the wide palette of birds like boring Ryouta to the objectively best bird, Okosan. The game is easily beatable in a day, but that’s by design- play through all the routes to get the whole picture, because choices in this game actually affect your understanding of the game. And remember: Bad boys love, too.
The Yakuza series is on a roll as of late with all of their games finally got localised for English audiences with Yakuza 0 out early this year and the remake of the first Yakuza, Yakuza Kiwami, ready for release this August. That means there’s only one more game that has yet to reach the West (and English speaking countries in Asia)- Yakuza 6.
Good news, that’s being localised too, coming early next year.
Yakuza 6: The Song Of Life is the first game to utilise the brand new Dragon Engine, built to make use of the PS4 hardware in full. The story takes our good natured Yakuza man Kazuma Kiryu back into the seedy streets of Kamurocho and the new city of [...]
Sony’s E3 press conference was definitely a weird one. While not on Devolver levels of weird, Sony’s was much shorter than it’s counterpart, Microsoft, as well as having barely any talking at all. And while everyone checked their prediction scorecards for anticipated games, I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say no one saw a remake of PS2 classic Shadow of the Colossus coming.
For those new to videogaming Shadow of the Colossus was a unique game for the PS2 that had you hunting down Colossi, huge monsters, to save a princess. All you had to kill these colossi were a bow and arrow, your horse, and a magic sword that pointed you to the [...]
