Zerodiv previously brought arcade games Strikers 1945 and Gunbarich to Switch, and has now outlined other arcade ports they will be bringing to the system.

Zerodic will next be bringing the 3D shooter Zero Gunner 2 to Switch, “sooner rather than later”.  They will also be bringing an entry in the Sengoku series and then a game from the Gunbird and Strikers 1945 franchises at some point this year. It is also noteworthy that Zerodiv seems to have plans that go beyond ports, and it seems they have something original in the works as well.

Casual Bit Games has just released a new teaser-trailer for Battle Princess Madelyn, which shattered its KickStarter goals with more than quadruple what they asked for, and is set to hit the PC, PlayStation 4, Vita, XBox One, Wii U, and Nintendo Switch in Q1 2018.

The game is set in a fantasy medieval Ireland but will take Madelyn on an adventure all around the world. The gameplay and aesthetics are very reminiscent of the older Ghosts N’ Goblins games as well as the more recent Cursed Castilla, which is certainly a good thing!

Here are some key features we can look forward to!:

  • Story mode allows players to explore the vast world of Princess Madelyn – uncover the secrets of the kingdom and beyond.
  • A 10 level Arcade mode for the action hungry old school game player – levels designed specifically for a fast action arcade experience.
  • Join Madelyn on her quest of self-discovery as she helps others, and not just herself, to becomes a wiser more mature knight and to save her family and kingdom from the clutches of evil.
  • An array of weaponry to choose from, each with its own unique abilities, which are also modified by the three different types of armor the player can receive on their way through the game.
  • Meet many different characters as Madelyn builds a support system throughout the kingdom.
  • Loads of ghouls, demons and bosses to crush on your way to becoming the kingdom’s most powerful defender.

Who remembers the TV show Sabrina the Teenage Witch? If you do, you may be interested in knowing that a new Sabrina series is in the works at the CW. Except, this is not Sabrina as you remember her.

 

The hourlong drama reimagines the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft, naturally. The new iteration is described as in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist and finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.

Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is penning the adaptation, which is being eyed as a companion for Riverdale that would potentially debut in the 2018-19 TV season. He will exec produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger, who will direct the pilot should the project move forward. Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. TV.

 

 

……………….

 

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina also represents a homecoming of sorts for the character of Sabrina Spellman. Melissa Joan Hart memorably played the character in Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The half-hour, produced by Viacom Productions, ran on ABC for four seasons before moving to The WB its final three seasons. The comedy wrapped in 2003, three years before The WB would merge with UPN to become The CW.

In recent years, Archie has been playing up the horror aspects of Sabrina in various comics. This TV show has a lot of potential, and is one to keep your eyes on.

The Dishonored series has been one of the more interesting things to have come out of gaming in recent years.  The games offer more choices that do affect how the game progresses, which give the games a lot of replayability. That said, there are some who feel the games have been becoming formulaic. For those who feel that way though, Dishonored: Death of The Outsider offers some changes to what you might expect.

Death of the Outsider follows Billie Lurk as she aids Doud in his revenge against the Outsider. From there however, things get strange. Billie gains abilities like one would expect in a Dishonored game, but not in the usual way. In fact, Death of the Outsider does a lot different, such as removing the chaos system altogether. This does affect the replayability of the game, but the tradeoff is a more innovative experience. Billie’s powers are fun to use, and offer multiple ways to go about things. Without giving spoilers, there are certain parts of the game that you just want to replay over and over, because there are so many different ways to complete an objective, and each way is extremely satisfying.

The gameplay in general is handled well, but I do feel that with the removal of the chaos system, the game is lacking something. Even with the chaos system removed, something equal could have been there, but what is in place just does not feel up to par with the previous games. That being said, I do appreciate the game moving away and trying something new.

Another thing to address is the fact that this is essentially DLC being sold separately. I have seen many complain about that, but I don’t know why. This is not a new concept, such as seen with Infamous: First Light, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and even Bethesda themselves with Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. I actually like the idea of DLC being sold as standalone games, especially in this case, since as mentioned,  Death of the Outsider does a lot of new things.

The game is rather short ( although considering it is an expansion, that is fine), but satisfying. You still feel awesome using the abilities, and there is the right mix of stealth and action along with a detailed story. The game works to resolve many of the overarching questions of the series, but manages to leave many things open for a possible sequel.

After playing Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, I felt Arkane Studios and Bethesda truly managed to take the series in a new direction. While some may not like this, I felt it may have been needed as it keeps things fresh. Playing this was an awesome experience, and I feel this is one that more people should play. Obviously this is not a good place to start with the series, especially as it spoils the events of Dishonored 2, and gives it a canonical series of events. But for fans of the series, this is a great game. I fully recommend it.

EA sent out the following

 

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today launched NBA LIVE 18, which introduces THE ONE, an all-new dynamic career experience centered around the player. The game offers a unique experience through character progression, extensive gear customization, and narrative branching – a first in the basketball videogame genre. In NBA LIVE 18, THE ONE gives fans the freedom to play how they want, where they want, and with whom they want in the quest for basketball stardom. Players can develop their own unique playstyle from 11 signature abilities and 70 different, upgradable traits, and their own personality with unique customization features including the hottest outfits and sneakers.

 

NBA LIVE 18 delivers a basketball experience with a level of player choice unlike anything that has come before,” said Sean O’Brien, Executive Producer on NBA LIVE 18. “We are giving fans a unique opportunity to build their own basketball legacy, playing on iconic courts and in Pro-Am leagues outside the traditional NBA, with a game that’s completely open and ever-changing. We’re going to continue to offer our fans new experiences through LIVE Events, where they can unlock rewards on their own or with a teammate.”

 

There are many pathways to rise up through the basketball ranks by playing in THE LEAGUE and THE STREETS. For an authentic NBA career experience, THE LEAGUE offers fans the ability to progress from rookie to veteran with their favorite NBA team while playing real NBA action including the NBA All-Star, NBA Playoffs and NBA Finals games. Just like in the NBA, players can earn MVP, All-NBA and Sixth Man of the Year awards, among others.

 

In THE STREETS, fans can push their career further on legendary Pro-Am courts where competitive challenges and matchups await, including LIVE Events – new, regularly updated challenges that are in-real time to battle opponents in competitive or co-operative games for unique rewards – to build a career in the streets through challenging tournaments and throwback challenges. Games can be played on iconic courts such as Rucker Park in New York City and in leagues such as The Drew in Los Angeles.

 

In addition to playing in THE STREETS and THE LEAGUE, players will be able to play in the WNBA, another first for the basketball genre. The WNBA’s full roster of teams and players will be available in WNBA Play Now, with the teams and player skills specifically balanced to reflect the unique playstyle of the league and its players.

 

Players looking for a deep and rich basketball experience on their mobile device can also check out NBA LIVE Mobile, available as free-to-download* on the App Store SM and Google Play™.

 

NBA LIVE 18 is developed by EA Tiburon and is available now in stores and for digital download worldwide for Xbox One and PlayStation® 4.
