  6. Everyone's favorite platforming knight finally has his helmet off and he's.... a catfish? The shovel-wielding warrior for justice was doffed his helm for the First 4 Figures line of Shovel Knight figures. The line of figurines will be available in three days, but the helmetless version of Shovel Knight will be exclusive to First 4 Figures. The other figures available feature Shovel Knight with his helmet on and the Ornate Plate version of Shovel Knight (basically the golden version). Each of these figures goes for $299, which is quite a lot of money. Even if those are outside of your holiday price range, isn't it neat to know that Shovel Knight is a weird fishman-frog-thing? An interesting twist to a thoroughly weird and lovable game. Shovel Knight is available on pretty much every platform in existence. The upcoming and final DLC, King of Cards, is scheduled for 2018. After that, who knows? Maybe we'll get a story about Shovel Knight's aquatic origins! View full article

  8. Last week
  9. The developers at Virtuoso Neomedia Enterprises describe Blazing Legion: Ignition as "an introspective, character driven, tactical first person bullet-hell about mecha and the consequences of becoming who you have to be." It is a concept that the game's producer and lead developer Ethan Redd has summarized as "Top Gun meets Gundam." And, honestly, that's one appealing pitch for pretty much anything - someone turns to me and says, "Top Gun meets Gundam" and I'm gonna respond, "Cool, let's do whatever that is!" Players take on the role of Vana, a legendary ace mecha pilot, as she comes to the forefront of a populist revolution against a galactic empire. the action hops between the present day realities that threaten a massive space war and Vana's memories of past missions with the Burning Legion, her former comrades. The team at Virtuoso hopes to balance out the frantic action with more thoughtful, quiet moments that give context and meaning to the explosive, kinetic action sequences. If the striking color, stylish combat, giant robots, and dramatic sensibilities of late 90s anime are up your alley, then Blazing Legion definitely deserves to be on your radar. Blazing Legion: Ignition should be released for PC sometime in 2018 with a show-ready demo surfacing around GDC in March. View full article

  19. Metal Gear Survive hits store shelves in February, but before the official release Konami will open up a beta in January. the beta will run from January 18-21. The beta will open up the game's co-op to test out the core mechanics (and network stability) of Survive: Base building, crafting, and combat. People who play the beta will be given in-game bonuses in the core game, such as a FOX HOUND name plate, a bandana, and a Metal Gear REX head. The beta will be immediately available to everyone on January 18. Speculation has run rampant about the future of the Metal Gear franchise since the high profile departure of Hideo Kojima. Konami's follow up to Metal Gear Solid V certainly raised some eyebrows when it was announced at E3 2016. The shift to some kind of zombie survival game struck many as odd and the lack of information on the game only caused people to become more uncertain, especially after the guiding force of the franchise split from the company. To give players an idea of what to expect, Konami has released a lengthy, commentated trailer to give an overview of Metal Gear Survive. First off, the story is not canon. It takes place in an alternate reality where following a massive attack at the conclusion of Metal Gear Solid V a portal opens up to another dimension, sucking up parts of structures and soldiers from Mother Base. One of the soldiers from the base, the protagonist, manages to avoid being sucked into the wormhole, but is sent into the rift several months later by a shadowy government organization. Once on the other side, the protagonist must hunt for food, build a base, fight off the ever-present zombie threat, and complete missions out in the strange, new world. Metal Gear Survive releases on February 20 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. View full article

  25. The fine folks at crea-ture Studios have been hard at work for the past month managing a Kickstarter campaign that aims to help them finish their skating simulator Session. Session has managed to succeed, cresting its fundraising goal and surging toward the various milestones set for it that would unlock additional features in the final game. The basic goal crea-ture Studios has for Session is to create as fluid a skating experience as possible. To that end, it employs a novel dual stick control system with each stick controlling a different leg. This allows for the performance of smooth and skillful tricks that rely on players understanding how to shift their weight between each foot. The mastery of this control scheme not only affects how players pull off tricks, but also how they maintain them. Shifting weight will have effects on the duration of tricks, making them either failures or flawless successes. In a major departure from previous skating games, Session won't have a scoring system. Tricks will be performed for their own merit with the option of filming and sharing them on social media. This combines with the in-game cameraman. Players can choose from various filters and angles to capture their tricks in the most flattering light before editing them in-game to share with friends and strangers alike. Inspired by the golden era of skateboarding, the early 90s and early 2000, Session's primary goal is to make you experience what skateboarding really is; an incredible sport where there are no other goals other than expressing your creativity and achieving success through hard work, perseverance and bits of madness for no one else other than yourself. Still, some people might find the lack of positive reinforcement via a points system perplexing, given the history of the genre. Crea-ture Studios explains it well in their Kickstarter saying: The main purpose of the game is to live the sport in its entirety. Feel what it is to be a talented street skater. Explore and tame the concrete, film yourself, your friends and share your footage on the internet with the worldwide skateboarding community. Session focuses on the authenticity of skating, both in the way the game feels and is presented to the player. Based on this philosophy, each feature makes the game even more innovative, fun and respectful to the skateboarding culture. There's still a week remaining on Session's crowdfunding campaign. The next stretch goal is solidly in sight CA$155,000 and the total raised so far sits at a little over CA$137,000. Beyond that, Session will have online multiplayer if the campaign can raise CA$255,000. If you aren't quite sold on the premise, but are interested in checking out Session to see if it might be interesting, the Kickstarter has put out a demo, which can be downloaded here. What do you think? Are you craving a successor to Tony Hawk's skateboarding throne? View full article
