No GravatarSteadily, leaks about the “unannounced” new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game have been trickling through. First rumors about this phantom game being rated on Australia’s Classification board, some art work, a few leaked in-game photos, and finally the achievement list for the Xbox. Everything was pointing to a new TMNT game, except the publisher or developer. Activision and Platinum Games remained tightlipped about anything involving this. What’s a turtle to do?

Then, Platinum Games, in a rather cheeky way, posted a gif on Twitter announcing the “Official leak” would be coming with a countdown timer on their website… For the next day. No build up, no suspense, just a “BAM!” in your face you’re getting the trailer tomorrow. And at 12:01, they delivered. The first official trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is here and it looks awesome.

Like a turtle do! This trailer has me hyped. The cel-shaded art style fits really well with the turtles and I’m digging Shedder’s look. And I’m loving the Turtles’ look, they actually look like teenagers here which is something I feel a lot of incarnations miss. It also looks like we are getting a lot of villains from their rouge gallery from Shedder and the Foot Ninjas to Bebop & Rocksteady to even Armaggon (the Shark Guy)! I hope they really reach deep in give of some good villains to fight. There wasn’t too much shown in terms of gameplay but we did get some combat action, showing of some fighting moves and combos between the Turtle Bros. Platinum is known for making quality action games and it’s looking like they are bringing their A game to this one.

According the the Xbox website’s game description, we can expect there to be four player online co-op play. I’m really looking forward to this because what’s a TMNT game if you can’t call your buds and play with all four brothers? The story is also being written by TMNT comic book writer Tom Waltz, who is a writer for the current TMNT comic.

So there you have it, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is set to release on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC this summer. It’ll probably be around the time the new movie comes out. I’m excited, are you? Let us know what you hope to get from this game. A as always, COWABUNGA!!!

Mortal Kombat XL

No GravatarWB Games and Netherreal Studios have announced Mortal Kombat XL, an all in one edition of Mortal Kombat X that includes all the DLC from Kombat Pack 1 and 2. Preordering Also gives you the Cosplay Pack which dresses Cassie and Jaqui as Lin Kei and Shira Raiu respectively. That is an excellent pack. The XL edition and Kombat Pack 2 will not be coming to the PC version which has had numerous issues.

 

The trailer is included below

 

No GravatarNetherrealm Studios has revealed the trailer for Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack 2 containing Leatherface, Triborg, Bo’Rai Cho and an Alien. In addition to the characters several previously separate costume packs and Goro will be included in the pack as well as a new costume set “Apocalyptic”. In addition, it seems the stage “The Pit” will be included in this pack as well.

 

See the trailer below

 

Doom_Header

No GravatarThanks to Neogaf user kinaesthete who shared this information.

BFG and Chainsaw aren’t on the weapon wheel since they’re used in specific scenarios, Chainsaw is on D-Pad down and BFG is on X. Seems like they’re treating the BFG as a panic button.

  • Weapons have mods you can find, ex. a remote detonation mod for the rocket launcher

  • Plot premise seems similar to Doom 3. A character named Dr. Olivia Pierce appears on a video suggesting she unleashed the demons as some kind of religious cult thing.

  • On-screen enemy count isn’t numbered but described as “a demon avalanche”, “bloodbath”

  • Chainsaw is a one hit kill on most enemies, multiple on bigger enemies like the Mancubus, power cells are limited

  • Colored keycards and backtracking for secrets.

  • Some locations: Lazarus Facility, Martian surface, Titan’s Realm (as seen on the cover)

  • Permanent character upgrades that allow you to swap weapons and mantle more quickly, increase ammo and health capacity

  • Swappable perk “runes”, ex. one gives you a stackable temp speed boost after melee kills

  • Hell is more vertical than the UAC facility

  • Enemies have weak point, ex. the pinky demon is armored in front and soft in the butt

  • An enemy type only described as “a summoner”

  • As suspected, idTech 6 appears to be very similar to idTech 5 but with a completely new PBR renderer

  • Plans to offer “sliders and multi-sampling options” for PC players. Only time in the article PC is mentioned specifically.

  • Multiplayer mode called Warpath, an domination style mode where the control area drifts around the map

  • Clan Arena mode, this is just team Last Man Standing.

  • Swappable “hack modules” are earned through MP progression, ex. Supply Timer that shows spawn timers for pickups on screen. Apparently none of them throw off the competitive balance.

  • Apparently multiplayer has more guns than single player, including a “lightning gun”, this might be GI assuming based on what was offered in the demo portions though.

  • Namedrops of old Doom WADs followed by statement implying that they won’t be releasing mod tools outside of SnapMap because of accessibility consoles.

  • Examples of modes made in SnapMap: tower defense, moddy single-player missions, VIP escorts, racing challenges

  • Moddable enemy AI to some extent

  • SnapMap stuff is all shared on SmartHub, categories like top rated and most played, user profiles, seems a lot like Mario Maker

  • All SnapMap creations are small instruction files, you can probably forget about custom textures and rooms and whatnot

  • Still spring release date

Our thoughts. All this news is amazing. DOOM is one of my most highly anticipated games of 2016. It is a game that takes the classic FPS formula and gives it modern look. With the snapmap options, it sounds like DOOM will never run out of content either. I can only hope that DOOM lives up to the hype and doesn’t disappoint. Though at this point I honestly feel like I will be highly satisfied with the game.

But what do you guys think? let us know in the comments. What system will you get the game on?

Fallout_Ship

No GravatarAfter the Fallout 4 trailer came out today, there has been an enormous amount of excitement about the game.  During careful review of the newly released trailer of the game, it does indeed appear that the game will be set in Boston, Massachusetts.

According to historical fiction author, Sophie Turner, the image of the ship with rocket boosters on it does appear to be the USS Constitution, which typically has docked in Boston in the past.  Also, an image of the Bunker Hill monument, the Paul Revere statue, and the Old North Church are visible as well.

This monument of Paul Revere has a Steam Punk-type dirigible in the background.

The Bunker Hill monument looks to be dilapidated from nuclear war.
