FarSky (FarSky Interactive) One of the best upcoming indies

In FarSky you play as Nathan, who has the extremely cool job of operating a submarine –puts my job of sitting her pressing buttons to shame. Nathan’s submarine has unfortunately crashed on the ocean floor—okay so being a writer isn’t too bad. To survive and return to the surface, Nathan will need to gather resources from his environment to repair the submarine, but he’ll have to watch his back as he does so as many a fishy predator is out to eat him. Near where Nathan’s submarine crashed lies an underwater base that Nathan can visit in order to refill...

The Phallic Headed Alien Wants You Dead: Alien Isolation

Will Creative Assembly’s Alien Isolation be a classic a’la Alien VS Predator or a doosey like Aliens: Colonial Marines? We take a look at the most standout elements of Alien Isolation for PS4 and XBOX ONE.   ALIEN ISOLATION: Truly Isolated Probably the best part of what we’ve seen of Alien Isolation is the fact that Creative Assembly are focussing on, of course, isolation. The sense of isolation brought the pant wetting fear of the first and best Alien movie. If Creative Assembly can match the atmosphere of that flick, we’re sure to see a classic.  But that’s a big...

Making The Arthurian Legend Come To Life in The Order 1886

If The Order 1866 is to become a PS4 masterpiece, it must match the narrative brilliance of GTA V, The Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite  Gameplay and Graphics Aren’t Enough for The Order 1886 It must be tempting for a game developer working on a nextgen game to get too caught up in the graphics. Graphics are the most obvious advancement in new consoles. Whether you’re playing a PS4 game or a XBOX One game, your first reaction, your first WOW, probably comes from the graphics. But if the past year has taught us anything about gaming and about...

Capcom’s Remember Me: Nilin Introduces Her Cyber Punk Sexy Self 0

Capcom’s Remember Me: Nilin Introduces Her Cyber Punk Sexy Self

Remember Me, the creation of Capom and Paris-based developer Dontnod Entertainment, looks to be a sexy, slick cyberpunk feast of a game. The game itself looks awesome, but naturally, being obsessed with characters , it’s Nilin herself which captures this author’s interest.

remember me nilin character, cyber-punk babe

 

Nilin is a Sophisticated, Cyber-Punk Heroine

The theme of Remember Me, and the motive of Nilin herself, is hinted at through her opening words in the trailer: ‘A friend once said “The memory of a single man’s a fortress more complex than the vastest of cities.” Here, Nilin introduces us to the amnesia-themed story. She continues, ‘But we invented a key to the fortress: a son’s first words, a mother’s last words, a lover’s kiss, a father’s deception. There are no secrets any more. And if remixing a single memory can change a man’s life, then changing a single man could remix the world. That was my job, until someone did it to me.’

Nilin’s voice in this trailer (wonderfully acted by the way) speaks of a noble character. She’s motivate by a revenge story after being betrayed by her father (*1), she’s suffering from amnesia (that now hackneyed dramatic device) and she (luck lucky girl) gets to investigate an awesome-looking grimy cyber-punk city ala Deus Ex.

Of course, Capcom made sure to highlight Nilin’s pixel-ass as early as possible—which cheapens her character a little—but nevertheless, this is one slick looking, smart talking, strong feminine hero that we cannot wait to discover more of.

Transistor Preview: It’s Like Bastion But Better

Fans of Supergiant Game’s Bastion will be pleased to hear that Transistor stays true to the developer’s form Transistor is a bright and vibrant action RPG with excellent combat and decent voice acting (which is rare for an independent game). This is more than just another Bastion, though, it’s an improvement, to be sure. The cryberpunk setting and advanced combat (which includes both real time and TBC) make this a truly cutting edge title, at least that’s our impression from the Game Developers Conference demo. The character that you play—a famous singer—gets access to a bizarre weapon, the transistor, which...

Star Wars 1313 Sees The Dark Side | Trailers for 5th April

 Okay, so technically none of this trailers for Star Wars 1313 are new, but they’re included in our list of trailers for today simply because  it’s good to remind yourself of what you’re going to be missing out on. After Disney closed LucasArts, development of Star Wars 1313 was confirmed to be over. So, all these great trailers of Star Wars 1313 that we saw at E3 and beyond are really just teasers. . . dirty little teasers, making us believe we’ll be jumping into awesome galactic action, then walking out on us at the last moment.

Metal Gear Solid 5 Phantom Pain Coming To PS4

Hideo Kojima is up to his usual antics, doing some highly creative marketing work for Metal Gear Solid 5 : Phantom Pain. In the previous Metal Gear Solid 5 trailer we saw a character– who quite clearly was Solid Snake– crawling around a hospital ward. The new Metal Gear Solid 5 trailer is even more mysterious than the first, including a message in morse code and a barely-ledgible message at around 40 seconds in. There’s no doubt that Phantom Pain is Metal Gear Solid 5, for a number of reasons. FIrstly, the character in the previous trailers looks and moves...

Injustice Gods Among Us : Raven Gameplay Shows The Mortal Kombat Style

A new trailer for Injustice Gods Among Us,, which features Raven has been released and shows awesome revamped Mortal Kombat style graphics. Obviously, you expect Mortal Kombat-esque gameplay from Netherrealm Studios, and you get it (watch the videos and count how many moves are directly taken from Mortal Kombat 9). From the looks of the trailer, Injustice Gods Among Us could be a real contender among beat-em-up fans. Could this be a major title at EVO this year? What do you think? Let me hear your thoughts in a comment below.

Is Saints Row 4 Just Stupid, or CRAZY – STUPID ?

A new trailer for Saints Row 4 has just been released. You may have thought that the Saints Row series has become crazy and dumb enough already, but apparently you were wrong. Dead wrong. The crazy / stupid metre has now been turned up to ten with Saints Row 4. Saints Row has always worn its carefree heart on its sleeve, with futuristc jetpakcs and Tron-esque levels. Saints Row was the rebellious punk who didn’t give a funk what anyone thought of it. And now its taken that attitude and amplified it into oblivion. Check out the new Saints Row...

Chilling with the Tropical Skyrim Mod

Ahhhh, this is the life, kicking back with the new Tropical Skyrim mod. Kinda makes you wonder what the point in all those bows and arrows and greatswords is. Look at the lush green forest of the Tropical Skyrim Mod. .  .lovely. Now when we get home from work we can forget all about skill and strategy and sit by the water listening to the bird’s chirping peacefully. Kinda like video game poetry. The Skyrim Tropical Mode  literally turns the entire environment into a tropical theme, with jungles beaches and forest.    Plus there’s pandas, tigers, apes and other animals....

Disney Infinity Will Help Teach Children Creativity and Social Skills

There’s likely no more nobler endeavour that a video game designer, studio or publisher can make than to aim to help teach children through games. The majority of the time, however, attempts to do so fail. The vast majority of games that educate kids are so lacking in the fun department that children simply don’t want to play them. Clearly, that’s not going to be the case with Disney Interactive’s Disney Infinity. Disney Infinity is a game from Disney Interactive that follows in the footsteps of Toy Story 3: The Video Game. What made Toy Story 3 so enjoyable was...

Killzone Shadow Fall for PS4 Playstation 4, Same Old Game With A Facelift

Killzone Shadow Fall might look absolutely stunning but it’s precisely the same game only with better graphics. Which, ironically, is so typically Sony – failing to deliver genuinely new gameplay experience but simply pumping out the same old tripe with better visuals.   Killzone Shadow Fall was the PS4’s most hype moment during the Sony conference. It was the one game that truly showed the power of the Playstation 4. It looked absolutely stunning. Then again, it’s entirely possible that the Killzone footage shown could just have been a pre-rendered cinematic . . . which might stir a few memories...

Latest News on Capcom’s Remember Me, Featuring Nilin, Gameplay and Combat Updates

Capcom’s Remember Me not only has Nilin (one heck of a cool character) and a slick cyberpunk style, it’s got some pretty darned inventive gameplay too, as these interview notes reveal.   Capcom’s Remember Me: The Latest Revelations from Interviews At the beginning of the game, Nilin doesn’t know who she is and has to discover the truth about herself and the world she is in. Nilin will have access to many different combos, which can also be customised. The combos are easy to perform but combat requires a lot of strategy. The story will be told through the environment....
