Hello Games has announced that the highly anticipated No Man’s Sky has been delayed till August 9.
A statement issues reads as follows
Hello, Sean Murray from Hello Games here, working extremely hard on our game, No Man’s Sky.
The game really has come together, and it’s such an incredible relief. As we sit an play it now, and as I watch playtesters every day, I can finally let myself get excited. We’re actually doing this.
However, as we approached our final deadlines, we realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards. I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special.
After a short delay, No Man’s Sky will launch in North America on August 9, in Europe August 10, and in the UK August 12.
We understand that this news is disappointing. Making this game is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, but we are so close now, and we’re prepared to make the tough choices to get it right.
The universe of No Man’s Sky is incredibly vast. More than you can imagine. This is a type of game that hasn’t been attempted before, by a smaller team than anyone would expect, under an intense amount of expectation.
And despite all of that, development is genuinely going well. This is the hardest working, most talented team I’ve ever worked with, and I’m so proud of what we’re doing. For all our sakes though, we get one shot to make this game and we can’t mess it up.
To the loyal community who’s stuck by our side since the unveiling of No Man’s Sky years ago, we hope you’ll accept our sincere apology and I am humbly asking that you’ll still look forward to exploring our universe despite the slight delay.
While it is sad that the game has been delayed, it is better to remember that it is better to have a delayed game that is good, rather than a rushed game that will be tarnished, to paraphrase Mr. Miyamoto.
Are you still excited for No Man’s Sky? Let us know.
A new trailer for the character of Gargos has been released for Killer Instinct Season 3. The new trailer, showing off the main villain, shows a large variety of moves as well as the character’s boasts. Hopefully Season 3 will explain everything he has done up to that point and how he manipulated everyone. Gargos is available right now for Killer Instinct Season 3 Ultra Edition and will be available for Combo Breaker on June 6.
Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest Builders will be coming to the west this October for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game is a block building RPG where the goal is to rebuild the world, Alefguard, which was destroyed by the Dragonlord. See below for more details
Generations ago, the realm of Alefgard was plunged into darkness when the hero fated to slay the terrible and treacherous Dragonlord, the ruler of all monsters, was instead tricked into joining him. Through this vile villain’s magical machinations, mankind was scattered to the winds and robbed of the power to build. With even the idea of creativity relegated to mere legend, the people of Alefgard wander the ruins of their former home, scrounging and scavenging in the dust to survive.
But now, a legendary figure arises – a hero chosen by the Goddess herself – who sets out to return the power of creation to the people of Alefgard. Only when the wonder of imagination has been returned to the land will mankind be able to overthrow the evil Dragonlord once and for all!
Build a variety of unique tools from materials you gather, and rebuild towns and cities to restore life to the shattered world of Alefgard.
An intuitive control system will have you building the towers and castles of your dreams in no time.
Play your own way—an immersive Dragon Quest story and world to explore, combined with the freedom of sandbox gameplay, provides a new and exciting, family-friendly experience.
Battle with famous monsters from the Dragon Quest series and interact with gorgeously designed 3D characters.
Will you be buying the game when it comes out? Are you excited? Let us know and have a look at the trailer below.
Arc System Works and Aksys Games have released a new story trailer for Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR. The trailer shows off the new plot of the game and hints at some major events occurring. Given that a major theme of the game is revelations, we can expect this story mode to answer many questions people have had for years.
Shadow of the Beast was a game for the Amiga, ZX Spectrum and other platforms, developed by Psygnosis and was a visual masterpiece for its time. Psygnosis was later purchased by Sony who thus acquired the ownership of Shadow of The Beast and have now revived the IP for the Playstation 4.
The first thing to note about this game is the fact that this is NOT your traditional beat-em-up game. There are precise controls and movements to be done along with quick time events in order to do well in the game. It can be tricky to learn at first but once you get the hang of it, you will find the game is actually very fun. Some have written off this game, simply due to the control scheme and that’s pretty unfair since the game makes no illusions of what it is. Combat can be fluid and quick, or thought out and deliberate or even both but all it requires is one to follow the directions. When you do that, the game flows well and you get into it much better.
The visuals in this game are absolutely stunning. The game has beautiful layouts and transitions from 2D to 3D done so well that it can actually leave you speechless for a time. The various areas you visit all seem alive and unique, unlike anything in a video game before it. It is something truly to be seen.
However, if there is a major flaw in this game, it is in the platforming. The game attempts to mix styles but it is here where it falls short. The platforming in the game is awkward and, at times, can be downright frustrating. The game just doesn’t seem to be made with proper platforming in mind. This can really mess you up when you are in some of the later stages for example where you are in need of precise jump. Its a big mark against an otherwise great game.
The highly visual style of combat led me to jokingly call this “Odd of War” when I saw the trailer but its not necessarily a bad assessment. The game has a stunning 2D visuals and an ultraviolent combat system that is a beautiful marriage of style and substance. Its not perfect but then again, nothing is. The game can be beaten in just a few hours but there is so much replayability that you will keep coming back. There are unlockable extras including the original Amiga version, which has options to reduce the difficulty (and you will have difficulty with this). It just has so much in it, that it really does have something for everyone, for both modern and retro gamers. While the platforming does bog it down somewhat, the game is still fantastic and I can easily recommend it. For once, this is a remake that’s done right.
