WB Games and NetherRealm Studios have released the new story trailer for Injustice 2. This explains the new threat of Braniac and why the alliances are shifting. We get a good look at how Braniac plays and how he will affect everything.
Take a look below
We plant to have a review of Injustice 2 shortly after launch.
Here is some very unexpected news. The new SNES fighting game Unholy Night, made by ex-SNK devs, who worked on King of Fighters and Samurai Shodown is coming to the west. It can even be preordered online right now via amazon.com. The game is being published by Retroism, which is nice to hear.
Here is the product description
Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter is a one-on-one SNES 2D fighting game developed by a team of ex-SNK staffers who had previously worked on the Samurai Shodown and The King of Fighters series. The game story revolves around a group of monster hunters who have dedicated their lives to exterminating vampires, werewolves, and other creatures of the night. Each unique fighter has eight special moves for the player to master as well as super moves that makes use of a three-level meter. When the fighter’s health is low, he/she gains bonuses similar to desperation moves from older arcade fighting games.
This is great news for retro fans and fans of fighting games. Will you be checking this out? I definitely will!
NetherRealm Studios and WB Games have released the fourth story trailer for Injustice 2. This one gives us a lot more context on what will happen and the overall plot, while also showing off some characters and the new divisions. I just hope they aren’t showing too much, and leave some surprises because the story mode does look interesting. Injustice 2 looks like a much bigger version of the first game, and it is exciting to see it come together. We will have a review around launch time.
WB Games and NetherRealm Studios have released a new Injustice 2 trailer, this time to show off Captain Cold. The character seems to take a lot of influence from the Mortal Kombat series and Sub-Zero in particular, while also bringing some new mechanics to fighting games by NetherRealm Studios. Captain Cold shows just how much the game is shaking things up, and it is likely he will be a fan favourite, especially if the rumors are true that Mr. Freeze will be an alt. outfit for him.
Sworn to ending all crime, the Regime hunted down and brutally executed every member of the Rogues, including Captain Cold’s sister. Using his skills as a thief and his iconic Cold Gun, Cold now seeks his vengeance. He’ll gladly use the Society to achieve it.
Nintendo and Capcom are continuing their collaborations it seems.
Capcom is bringing Ultra Street Fighter II to the Switch as well all know, but while they are publishing it in Europe, they are not distributing it there. Nintendo will be the party to distribute USFII in that region, which continues their trend of distributing many of Capcom’s games for their systems. Nintendo previously handled the distribution for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate,Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, andResident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D among others. Hopefully Ultra Street Fighter II will be a success for both companies.
We will have a review of Ultra Street Fighter II shortly after launch.
WB Games and NetherRealm Studios have released a new Injustice 2 trailer. This one shows off villains Gorilla Grodd, Captain Cold, Bane and Scarecrow. Bane has gotten a redesign and Scarecrow legitimately looks like one of the best designed NetherRealm studios has ever come up with, and will no doubt be a popular pick for the game.
Injustice 2 is looking amazing and should be a blast to play. We will have a review up as soon as we can,
The final DLC character for season 1 of KOF XIV has been revealed and it is one that fans have wanted for a long time. Yes, Rock Howard will make his main series KOF debut.
Rock Howard made his debut in the last chapter of the Fatal Fury series, Garou: Mark Of The Wolves, and this release will mark his first appearance in a mainline KOF title. He is the estranged son of crime lord Geese Howard, having been adopted and raised by Terry Bogard from a young age. His fighting style is a unique mix of both Terry and Geese’s styles and he even boasts his own variations on some of their iconic moves, such as Geese’s Raging Storm and Terry’s Buster Wolf. His Crack Counter, for example, combines the reversal techniques from Geese’s Aikijutsu moves with Terry’s Crack Shoot attack.
This melding of styles results in a well-rounded fighter. He sacrifices both Geese’s dominating power and Terry’s simple and direct style for speed and versatility, creating a unique approach that stands on its own despite borrowing heavily from two disparate fighters.
As you can see in the above trailer, Rock Howard and all of his techniques have been dutifully recreated in KOF XIV with some slight adjustments to fit the new battle system.
The development team aimed to make his transition as faithful as possible, including small details such as how his shirt and jacket animates during his idle animation!
All characters from the DLC will be available on April 5 2017. The BGM and Stage DLC will be free, while the characters will cost money.
Rock looks absolutely amazing and is a very welcome addition to the roster.
Video game peripheral maker Mad Catz has a bad run financially lately, and it is about to be a lot worse. The company is due to bet removed from trading on the new York Stock Exchange due to “abnormally low” stock value. Mad catz has said theyt will not appeal the process, which will lead to severe financial hardship for them.
It is not the end however, for Mad Catz a publicly-traded company. After it will be delisted from the NYSE Mad Catz stock will then be traded on the “OTC Pink” U.S. financial market for so-called “over-the-counter” securities.
Chaos Code was a fighting game that was too big and yet too small for its own good. That may sound strange but its true. The game had so much too offer, but not enough modes to make it viable for a strong competitive scene.
Chaos Code : New Sign of Catastrophe for the PS4 is an enhanced port of the game that serves to fix the problems that held the original release back. It somewhat succeeds at this, while maintaining what made the original release fun. The fighting is intense and fast paced, yet isn’t as hard to learn as it might seem. Playing this with my Hori Fightpad was a great experience and I took to the controls right away. Playing locally and the arcade mode was a fun time and gave me a high opinion of the game.
I love the art style and visuals. They are flashy but not too intense and give the game a great look that fits it well. The music and sound effects are great, with audio that fits the gameplay for the most part, although some of the voiceovers are…awkward to say the least. As stated above, the controls are fluid and easy to learn. I was pulling off intense moves in a very short time, and that made the experience much more satisfying for me.
But it isn’t all sunshine however, as there was one major issue that ruined much of my experience. That problem was the fact that I was unable to connect online for any matches whatsoever. This was not an issue on my end, as I hoped into online matches in some other fighting games. I only had a problem here, and as such, I cannot review the online. I really wanted to see how it played but it simply did not work at all for me.
Chaos Code : New Sign of Catastrophe is a great game with what it has available, but the issues with the online features really hurt it in my opinion. I really hope to see this get patched soon, as I don’t feel right leaving this as a full review considering I cannot play online for whatever reason. As such, I will re-review the game once the online works well. For what is playable though, it is a great experience. Just be aware that the multiplayer has issues. If you play locally primarily, then you wont have a problem, and there is single player content as well, so there is still something for most players. The problems with the online is just a major flaw I cant look past however. I know some people were able to play online with no issues, but every time I tried to play over the last few days, I had this issue. As such, I cannot recommend this just yet.
