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?

Kemco sent out the following

 

KEMCO proudly announces the release of Revenant Saga for PlayStation®set to hit the North American PlayStation®Store this spring. The game will be made available for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita. For more information, please visit the Game Page on PlayStation.com.

There are many adventures to be had in Revenant Saga! Playing as Albert, you must navigate a perilous world crawling with both the fast-spreading plague and the monstrous Revenants. So, while all Albert had wanted was to save his friend from certain death, an unfortunate meeting with a deranged doctor causes him to be caught in a heavenly battle, stuck somewhere between good and evil.

In the classic RPG style, players are able to join forces with like-minded (or maybe not-so-like-minded) allies as they travel the world of Revenant Saga. And while Albert’s companions prove to be a combination of powerful and hilarious, in this precarious world everyone has skeletons buried in their closet. Will Albert and his friend’s be overcome by those skeletons? Guess you’ll need to play to find out.

What you should know: Revenant Saga will incorporate over 30+ hours of gameplay woven around Albert’s elaborate journey. This includes a variety of unique subquests, in-battle transformation systems, as well as a weapon forging system allowing players to make entirely unique weapons as they battle in a classic 3D battle animation system! Also, Revenant Saga will provide an entirely brand new feature to the PS KEMCO gaming experience: players will be able to earn platinum trophies as a reward for progress and effort spent throughout the game!

Take a leap of faith! The world of Revenant Saga’s doors will open for you in Spring 2017!

Kemco RPGs are often hit or miss with many, but they do have a charm to them that makes them fun to play. Hopefully this game will be a success.

Some big news on the Sega front

Project Sonic 2017 is now officially titled Sonic Forces.  It is due out for launch this holiday for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

The game’s key element this time is of “forces.”  On one side there is Sonic and his friends, and on the other there is Dr. Eggman and his evil army, representing the forces and good and evil.

The game is using a new engine called Hedgehog Engine 2. The developers are promising this will be closer to Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations than other games.

However there is some bad news, as Sonic Mania has been delayed until Summer. This is being done to ensure that the game is of utmost quality.

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?

Torment: Tides of Numenera was a game I was looking forward to for two reasons. One it is a spiritual successor to Planescape Torment, one of the best games ever made. The other is that it uses the Numenera Tabletop game as its setting, and Numenera is a game I have played often. So I had high hopes for this game. What I got was something a bit more than I expected.

TToN is unlike most RPGs, it is a thinking person’s RPG, more than any other. Whereas games like Fallout require a bit more action, Torment is a different beast altogether. The game is far more philosophical than people may expect. It asks deep questions, but the writing never lectures and it actually feels natural. It also references other parts of the Numenera setting and as a fan, that just made me feel giddy at times.

Torment is a deep game and one you can get lost in for hours. The gameplay does take a while to get used to, but once you do, it feels rewarding. This is designed as a throwback to the classic era of western RPGs as well as bringing in some modern aspects. Overall, I think the two have been blended very well, leading to a quality product.

If I had one complaint it is that I had some control issues. I played this on the PS4 and for some reason, at random times the controls became non responsive. When I say randomly, I truly mean it, as there was no rhyme or reason as to why these control issues happened. It really did get in the way of the game and I hope a patch can fix this soon.

A high point in the game, by contrast, was the audio and visuals. The game has an incredible soundtrack and a great art style as well. The two work together to give you a sense of nostalgia while still being firmly rooted in the modern day. I love it, when a game can accomplish that, and with Torment, it did so with amazing results.

All in all, if not for the control issues I experienced, I would say this is a perfect game. As it is, I will still recommend it, especially since a patch is likely. This is just an awesome experience and one I truly enjoyed.

No GravatarSony’s PlayStation Now service is getting a big update with the arrival of PS4 games to the service. They shared the following on the PlayStation Blog.

As many of you know, PlayStation Now lets you stream hundreds of PS3 games — currently 483 to be exact — to your PS4 and Windows PC.

We’re excited to announce that PS Now’s catalog is set to grow even further, as we’ll be expanding to include a new platform: PlayStation 4 games. All of the games in the service, including PS4 games, will be included with a single PS Now subscription. We’ll share more information as we get closer to launch, so stay tuned.

Also, PS Now uses cloud saves, letting you start a game on PS4 and continue playing on another PS4 or even a Windows PC (or vice versa).

What is interesting about this is that this could actually end up selling more PS4 units than people think. This will give many people on the fence about the PS4, a chance to play the games on PC and see if they like it. I applaud Sony on this and feel they are making the right move.
