EA sent out the following

 

Today, Respawn revealed Colony Reborn, the next free DLC update available to all Titanfall 2 players. Starting March 30th, players can re-visit Colony – a fan favorite map from the first Titanfall that is filled with narrow streets, interiors, and rooftops. In addition to Colony, players can try out an all-new Pilot execution, Curb Check pilot, as well as the new R-101 carbine, all for free!

 

In addition to the new free content, Titanfall 2 players can also purchase new cosmetic items including Prime skins for Northstar and Legion, new Camos, Callsigns, and more.

 

To celebrate the launch of Colony Reborn, Respawn will be kicking off another free trial weekend. Starting March 30, those yet to experience the power of Titanfall 2 can enjoy elements of the game’s critically-acclaimed single player. This includes The Beacon, one of the missions from the main campaign, as well as the Training Gauntlet. In addition to introducing single-player content to the trial, players will also have access to all multiplayer maps and modes. The Titanfall 2 free trial weekend will end on Monday, April 3, at which point the multiplayer portion of the trial will no longer be available. However, the single player content from the trial will still be available post-April 3.

Titanfall 2 has been under the radar compared to other big name games, which is a shame as it is a major improvement over the original. Hopefully this new content and the free weekend will help bring in more players.

No GravatarSNK and Atlus have revealed the next DLC character for King of Fighters XIV. Vanessa, the beautiful brawler, makes her return to the fight.

Vanessa was a fan requested character, so it is great to see her return to the fight. Now all that is left is the last character. Who could it be?

The King of Fighters XIV is getting some great DLC characters, but who could the final character of this (initial?) DLC be? Could we finally see the long desired King of Fighters debut for Rock Howard? I for one would like to see that! Let us know what you think?

Shovel Knight was a one of a kind game. It was the kind that is often imitated but never replicated, so when Yacht Club released the expansion, Plague of Shadows, it was an extremely welcome addition. Now Yacht Club has released a second expansion, with Spectre of Torment.

This expansion serves as a prequel to Shovel Knight, focusing on Spectre Knight establishing the Order of No Quarter. You are based in the Tower of Fate and warp to various areas. You can interact with the denizens of the Tower, as your basic hub town and your interactions grow as you progress in the game. A lot more story is established for the series, with players getting more insight into the characters and to what the basic motivations are.

Before I go any further, I must note that this expansion plays a lot better than Plague of Shadows. The controls feel much more intuitive and tighter and are just easier to get used to. In fact, the whole expansion just feels a lot more polished than Plague of Shadows, and gives a lot more satisfaction to the player.

Spectre Knight’s story just feels like coming in to a whole new game that feels like a sequel more than an expansion. The music from the stages have been reworked in great ways, but also subtle ways at the same time. King Knight’s stage in particular had standout music to me, for how it was changed from the original game.

Do I think this expansion is worth buying? Oh most definitely. Spectre of Torment is fun, has innovative gameplay, great bosses, neat power-ups, and more. This is just a good solid game, and I cannot recommend it enough.

Before I end here, I want to mention the Body Swap mode that has been added to Shovel Knight. it is a small touch but it really does help change the perspective of the story somewhat. The changes aren’t too much and are sometimes unnoticeable, but when you do see them, you appreciate them. I love the work that Yacht Club Games has been putting into Shovel Knight, they have a lot to be proud of.

No GravatarThe Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming to Nintendo Switch later this year, but will it do well? It is coming out a year after the special edition released on other consoles and PC and several years after the original game. To succeed on Switch it needs to be different, and I think it will be.

If Skyrim on Switch were just the original version of the game, it would have come early at launch. If it were just the special edition….it would also have been a quick port. The fact that it is coming out so late, makes me feel that more work is being done on this. In fact this might even be a special Nintendo themed edition of the game. But what would that entail. Well, probably exclusive mods that allow Nintendo content. maybe some items, armor and weapons from Nintendo games. Heck maybe some cameos and even a sidequest if we are lucky. The game could also make use of HD rumble to give the shouts more of an impact.

But what can really make a difference is amiibo. Hear me out on this. Imagine scanning an amiibo into the game and getting new items based off that amiibo for the dovahkiin. Scanning one of the many amiibo from Legend of Zelda will bring weapons, armor and more from that series. Maybe even a location or two will make an appearance. Or you could even bring Epona into the game, to replace the horses in Skyrim. The same for a fire emblem amiibo, with it giving you the armor and weapons from that series, and maybe some changes to the dragons. The Mario amiibo could make osmall changes to Parthuunax who is voiced by Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario himself, or we could see some new enemies and more appear, all to give the game a unique feel that has a Nintendo feeling.

Ideally, this would also work with third party amiibo. Imagine using the Mega Man amiibo to get his iconic look and then kill a dragon and take its soul. The music could even change to the turn that plays when Mega Man absorbs a new ability. Using the upcoming Cloud amiibo could give you the buster sword, which could be an over powered sword in the game. Ryu could give the player the Hadouken either as a spell or a new shout, which would be something many fans would like. And let us not forget the Shovel Knight amiibo. This could unlock Shovel Knight’s armor and shovel blade for use in the game. The amiibo could give specific armors depending on gender, but otherwise it could be all uniform.

The best thing about this, is that all these changes would be optional. There would be no need to force these on people who just want the game, but it  would be available if people want, via the amiibo. There should still be something in game without the amiibo, just to be there for people who don’t want the amiibo. But still the main focus should be on the amiibo and their optional use.

This is an idea, I hope Bethesda considers and Nintendo helps make happen. Using amiibo could be the big selling point for Skyrim on Switch.

So now we see how some characters have returned, and we have some idea of the story. the game looks much more epic in scale than the first game and should be a blast to play. We will have a review of the game shortly after launch.

April 5 is a great release date, not too far away and it lets us build up anticipation for the character.  Whip will cost $4.99 on release which is a very good and fair price. I love what SNK is doing with the game’s DLC, and I hope we get the rest of the reveals and release dates soon.

See the trailer below.

Whip looks excellent to play as, and should be a lot of fun. Whom do you think the other DLC characters might be? Let us know!
