I can see them through the brush—those red eyes, glowing like the waning embers of a fireplace. There are two: One is in a top hat, the other a derby, both mustachioed to an ostentatious degree and both resting their hunting rifles in the crooks of their arms. These gentlemen sentries have been scanning the countryside for the past 15 minutes. They’re looking for me. Their surveillance balloon has been drifting around near me, but so far I’ve been lucky enough to avoid its spotlight and the resulting klaxon. I’d like to fight back, but right now I’ve got to my name a pair of binoculars, some bandages a couple of dead rats and a boot. The situation is not promising, but I’ve got to make a run for the quaint little English village just over the hill; maybe I can find a pistol and some ammo. God, I hate these robots!
There are few things everyone can agree on. Welsh corgis are cute, black licorice tastes weird (even if you like it), and the Ninja Turtles are awesome. Leonardo, Donatello, Michaelangelo and Raphael have been kicking robot, ninja, mutant and alien butt for the better part of three decades. This, however, puts a lot of pressure on a Ninja Turtles video game. Especially considering that the TMNT franchise has spawned a dozen games, many of which are very highly regarded.
Does Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows for Xbox Live Arcade stand its ground? Or does it fail to be totally radical?
The rain came down in a torrent just outside the fish market as the private police force bore down on us from all angles. I had with me a gun-toting troll—a mountain of a woman she was—and a plucky little dwarf furiously alternating between casting buffs on us and throwing fireballs at the cops. None of us mattered, though. Our only concern was the elf, our decker. She had plugged herself into a corporate Intranet to retrieve some R&D files for a client—just a little corporate espionage. Such is the life of a runner in Harebrained Schemes’ recently released “Shadowrun Returns.” Read on for a Major Spoilers review.
Gogii Games and Archie Comics are proud to announce the long awaited worldwide launch of Archie: Betty or Veronica, available through iTunes to iPhone and iPad devices.
ROBOT OVERLORD: Attention Meatbags! announcements concerning the next generation of gaming consoles have been made and the internet is abuzz with praise and terror! I have tasked seven members of the Major Spoilers crew to write their opinions and concerns regarding Microsof’s X-Box One and Sony’s PS4. Of those I picked four and electrocuted the rest!
Here is your Major Spoilers Breakdown of the PS4 Vs. the XBox One:
Nintendo is on a roll with all the announcements coming out of Nintendo Direct and E3. This time we get to see the next iteration of another classic Nintendo franchise, Mario Kart. Take the jump for the trailer.
E3 saw the release of a trailer for the next generation of Nintendo’s cross-franchise franchise, Super Smash Bros. Amongst other things we see the first new challenger to be announced, take the jump and see.
More from E3 as WB Games Montreal released a new trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins, the prequel to the fantastic Arkham Asylum and Arkham City games. With a few more villains revealed and a look at some new (old) gadgets, it’s worth taking the jump and watching.
With E3 having been this weekend, all sorts of game news is flooding the nets, but here’s one that is surprising a lot of people. The closing of LucasArts may not be as bad as initially expected as EA has announce that DICE, the guys behind Battlfield and Mirror’s Edge, will be making a new Star Wars: Battlefront title. You can see the quick teaser trailer after the jump.
Telltale Games has released a teaser trailer for The Walking Dead: 400 Days, new DLC for Season One of their amazing point-and-click adventure game based on Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic. Check it out after the jump.
Over the current generation of consoles, I would say that one of the games well towards the top of my favorites would be Mirror’s Edge. Rumors of a sequel started circling almost immediately upon the initial release and here we are, six years later, finally seeing EA and DICE release a trailer for Mirror’s Edge 2. Take the jump to watch.
DC is putting on a “Villains Month” this September with most of their titles taking at least a .1 detour. While the merits of this idea can and have been discussed elsewhere, we have seen some interesting news with the solicits for the not one, but two Teen Titans issues for the month, which you can check out after the jump.
