Pete Hines, the Vice President of Bethesda Softworks spoke with Finder.com.au about various subjects and the issue of game sales was discussed. It was revealed that Both The Evil Within and Rage sold well enough to warrant sequels. This doesn’t mean sequels are confirmed though as Hines refused to comment on what Bethesda has planned.
Pete Hines: I can’t talk about the unannounced stuff and what we may or may not do. I get myself in trouble whenever I do that. Even when we were talking about the Morrowind Remaster, if I come out and say, ‘I just don’t think that is going to happen,’ then people freak out. So I won’t confirm or deny stuff we may or may not do, as people jump to the wrong conclusions. But I do think both The Evil Within and Rage did well enough that we could make sequels. Personally I loved Rage and had a tonne of fun playing it, but we have a lot of stuff in the pipeline right now so you will have to wait and see.
With this known, it is exciting to think that we might see sequels to these games in the not so distant future. We will just need to wait and be patient.
Koei Tecmo has released a new gameplay video showing off how Guts will look in the upcoming Berserk Musou. The character looks true to his origins and the game is extremely graphic and bloody. Fans of the series will definitely appreciate the work being done in this video game.
You can check out the video here. Note, it is very bloody and graphic so watch at your own risk.
We’ll not beat around the bush. Team Ikari Warriors is an elite mercenary agency,
led by Commander Heidern, that’s tasked with gathering intel about Antonov and some
of the other… undesirables in
THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV tournament.
These soldiers of fortune are big, strong, and not afraid of getting up close and personal in combat. Leading these warriors into the tournament is Colonel Ralf Jones, nicknamed the One Man Army, who is no stranger to fighting. Although Ralf is a bit hotheaded, he is an exceptional leader who utilizes a dangerous mercenary combat style that focuses on deadly strikes. Oh, did we mention that he’s ripped a tank wide open with his bare hands? Yeah, he’s pretty dangerous. His brother in arms, Lieutenant Clark Still, is a pretty dangerous dude too. Clark also trains in mercenary combat style, but he’s geared more towards wrapping his opponents up like a pretzel and slamming them. That being said, he’s calmer and more level-headed than Ralf and just as formidable. Lastly, we have the cold and professional operator Leona Heidern. Leona is the adopted daughter of Commander Heidern who uses a hybrid fighting style that combines martial arts with Heidern style assassination techniques. Although she is simply a soldier, she has the powerful blood of Orochi running through her veins and must keep her emotions in check to prevent bad things from happening. She’s not a total ice queen though, because Leona is very loyal to the Ikari Warriors and will fight to protect her friends.
Also, don’t forget to get ahead of the competition and download the free demo. Practice local versus with seven characters (Kyo Kusanagi, Mai Shiranui, Iori Yagami, Sylvie Paula Paula, King of Dinosaurs, Shun’ei, and Nelson) before the game comes out on Aug. 23!
Simple games tend to be not so fun for me. I will play them and nine times out of ten, I will get bored and feel like I wasted my time. I was prepared to feel that same feeling when I started playing Hot Rod Racer, but to my surprise I instead felt something else. I felt myself having fun and enjoying the game and I did not think that possible. On the surface it seems a generic title that should be boring and terrible but instead I found it to be fun and addictive. Oh sure there are issues, like the weird crashing and freezing that happened when I started playing. I encountered that a few times but as I continued to play the game, I stopped experiencing it as much and eventually it became rare.
Ostensibly this is a racing game with a 2D overhead track but in truth there are elements of multiple different genres present. This game takes cues from Shoot em Ups, from demolition games, from arcade racers and more. It is a mix of styles done incredibly well by ZenFa productions and creates an experience that demands attention. The replay value is there, the fun factor is there and the gameplay is tight.
I also need to mention the music. It is fantastic in this game and really feels great for a racing game. It takes me back to the music of the classic 16 bit console racing games with all their fun tunes. Small things like that might not be a selling point for others, but it helps sell me on the game. The music does a great job of bringing the player into the gameplay as well as setting the mood. So good job to the developers on that!
Do I think you should buy this game? Yes, since aside from some glitches, which I mentioned already and are hopefully going to be worked on, the game is great. You will not regret this experience.
SNK and Atlus have released a new trailer for the King of Fighters XIV. This trailer shows of Team Psycho Soldier and their abilities.
I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but Team Psycho Soldier isn’t really filled with
psychos or soldiers. On the contrary, it’s comprised of a famous J-pop idol, goofy
high school kid, and an old drunk kung fu master. Don’t let that fool you though,
because this team is legitimately dangerous.
First off, we have the psycho ball flinging Athena Asamiya. Athena is a cheerful
and friendly high school girl who is adored worldwide for being a famous pop star.
She has a strong sense of justice and always puts on a worthy show for her fans
on stage and in the ring. Athena utilizes a variety of psionic abilities and will
be a terror to any opponent in THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV tournament. Next up, we
have Sie Kensou, a goofy Kung Fu kid with a penchant for dragons. He fights with
a hybrid Kung Fu and psychic style, and has a lot of potential to become an
fighter. Oh, he’s also in love with Athena and hopes to impress her one day with
his fighting ability. That’s as good as any reason to fight right? Lastly, we have
the drunken master Chin Gentsai. Chin is a very ancient fighter who lulls his opponents
to sleep with his drunken antics before exploiting their carelessness. He is both
master and mentor to the two younger members of Team Psycho Soldier, and wants them
to test their psychic abilities in the tournament.
In an interview with Nintendo Life, Rive developer Two Tribes has revealed that the game will be delayed on Wii U and might in fact switch to NX
Having been confirmed during the Spring for a September release on Wii U, PC, PS4 and Xbox One, there’s now some disappointing news for Nintendo fans. Two Tribes has confirmed to us that the Wii U version of RIVE won’t be hitting that window, and at this moment of time doesn’t have a fixed date. Two Tribes is keen to bring the game to Nintendo hardware and it may transition to NX – depending on what the next-gen system actually is – as the studio wants to ensure that the experience reaches its standards of 60fps performance, a benchmark vital to shooters and bullet-hell titles of this nature.
First of all, can you talk us through the reasons and thoughts behind RIVE being delayed for Wii U, or perhaps being moved to NX instead?
It’s very important to us that Nintendo users will get a great version of RIVE, but unfortunately we don’t know at this point when or how we’ll be able to deliver this. There are two main reasons for this, one technical and one business related.
The market has also changed. The game was supposed to ship over a year and a half ago, and things are a lot different now. Nintendo is exiting the Wii U market early in favor of the NX which means a long tail in sales is not looking likely. So that is the business part; do you release a game on a platform in its last days or on a new one that’s better suited and can reach gamers for years to come?
While this is disappointing , we can hope that Rive will be a success when it does arrive on a Nintendo platform. Whether that be on the Wii U or the NX. It is understandable that many are worried about the long term viability of putting a game on the Wii U with the NX looming, considering that Nintendo is winding down support. That said however, there is still a market of Wii U owners who would like games to play and this would be perfect. Either way, we wish them the best.
