New Enemy Front Screenshots Released, Limited Edition Detailed

Games based in a World War II setting aren’t quite as popular as they used to be. But that doesn’t mean that people are willing to let them die out either. Namco Bandai Games has released a few new screenshots of their upcoming WWII shooter Enemy Front. I don’t think that WWII games will be making a comeback anytime soon, but who knows, maybe Enemy Front will be the game to turn that around. If nothing else, the game definitely [...]

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 Announced

I was quite surprised by Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. I had always had a natural distrust of any Pac-Man title that was in 3D. Since this was based on a cartoon as well my hopes weren’t very high. Fortunately Namco produced a surprisingly good platformer.  What really kept the game interesting was the variations of abilities Pac-Man would assume during levels and how they worked with the enemies inside. Expanding upon the simple ghost munching mechanics with complex abilities [...]

Let’s Talk About 5 Changes in Dark Souls II

Full disclosure: I haven’t yet finished Dark Souls II. If I’d had it from release, I definitely would have by now, but I was away travelling until just a week ago and when checking Twitter every night I had the excruciating task of avoiding any and all spoilers – and since I wanted to go into the game completely blind to get the ‘true’ experience, EVERYTHING was a spoiler to me. Tough one. Still, at about 20 hours in I’m [...]

 

Dark Souls II Developer Diary – ‘Dark Intentions’

It’s close now. So very close. With just over a fortnight to go until Dark Souls II spills out into the mortal, cursed world, Namco Bandai have released an outstandingly brooding developer diary on the themes of the sequel. Talking heads include director Yui Tanamura, art director Daisuke Satake, and British comedian and voice actor Peter Serafinowicz. Prepare to die.

Dark Souls – Don’t Give Up

The flow of time may be convoluted in Lordran, but in the real world, there’s a mere month until Dark Souls II. For some people, it’ll be a homecoming, a return to a world that’s taken so much, and given back so much more. But naturally with every new entry to a series, it will also bring in a whole batch of new blood, blindly taking their first steps into a world that wants them dead. It’s a fascinating thing [...]

New Wonder Momo Game, Anime, CD, Everything in 2014

Forget the Year of Luigi being extended into 2014, Namco Bandai is basically making 2014 the year of Wonder Momo. Now for those of you who don’t know, Wonder Momo is an old IP of Namco Bandai’s originally released for Japanese arcade machines in 1987 and later ported to the Turbografx-16 and Wii Virtual console. Unfortunately it never made it to the states, presumably because of its anime influences deemed too “strange” by the standards of the day. Those fools. [...]

 

VaatiVidya’s Speculations on Dark Souls 2

If you know anything about the Dark Souls community, you’ll know they spend half their time not playing the game at all, but instead pooling their knowledge of the game on YouTube, forums, and wikis to break down all of the nooks and crannies of the intricate world. That isn’t a criticism, in fact I think of it as one of the greatest phenomena this generation has produced. Newer publishers might be trying desperately to blend social media and games, but Dark Souls [...]
