  1. Monument Valley 2, the sequel to the well-received (and super pretty) MC Escher-esque mobile puzzle game, launched as a surprise iOS exclusive during Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference this past June. Given Monument Valley's availability on both Apple and Android devices, fans of the latter platform worried about how long they'd have to wait to get their crack at the sequel (if at all). Turns out not for much longer, as the game arrives on Google Play on November 6. Unlike the first game, Monument Valley 2 features two characters, a mother and child, that players must navigate across the mind-bending environments. Just like the previous title, though, the sequel boasts a calming pastel color palette and a serene soundtrack. If you're an Android user, are you looking forward to Monument Valley 2? How did you feel about the first game?

  3. First-person puzzler/philosophical journey The Talos Principle received acclaim when it first released on PC in late 2014. After being ported to console and mobile, the game makes the next logical leap: virtual reality. The Talos Principle VR is available now on Steam for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. According to developer Croteam, the game has been entirely redesigned for VR and features fully customizable controls. This version runs for $39.99 but owners of the original game receive a 25% discount (knocking it down to around $29.99). Additionally, the four-episode Road to Gehenna expansion is included with The Talos Principle VR. Any of you Oculus or Vive users plan on to taking a look at The Talos Principle? View full article

  5. Star Ocean faithful and newcomers alike will have the chance to experience the earliest point in the series' timeline. Square Enix announced that Star Ocean: The Last Hope is getting a 4K and HD facelift, launching for PlayStation 4 and Steam on November 28. The Last Hope is a prequel to the first Star Ocean game, taking place several hundreds years prior and features a heavier sci-fi theme than other entries. It originally released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2009. In addition to controller, the PC version of the remaster features full mouse and keyboard support. Naturally, the 4K upgrade applies to PlayStation 4 Pro users as well as PC players with a compatible setup. The remaster will release digitally for $20.99 (no word on a physical release). Purchasing before December 12 nets players a 10% discount, with Steam users also receiving an exclusive mini-soundtrack. PS4 players can get a special Star Ocean theme and 12 avatars if they pick up The Last Hope before January 12. If you're a Star Ocean fan, how do you feel about The Last Hope's remaster? What other entries would you like to see get the same treatment?

  7. The sky-high price tag for VR has been one of the primary barriers keeping a majority of gamers away from the technology. At Oculus' Connect 4 event earlier today, Facebook announced plans to remedy that situation by dropping the price of its original headset as well as introducing a significantly cheaper model. In with the new first. Oculus Go is a standalone, "all-in-one" headset retailing for $199. Similar Samsung Gear VR, no PC (or phone) is required; just strap it on and play using the Wii nunchuck-esque single palm controller. Oculus Go arrives in early 2018. As of today, you can purchase the standard Oculus Rift model for $399.That package includes two touch controllers, two sensors, and seven free games. That's one whole Benjamin down from the $500 price that went into effect earlier this year, which in itself was a cut from $600 launch tag. If you've been eyeing VR but haven't taken the plunge yet, are these announcements enough to entice you? Does VR interest you at all?

  13. By most accounts, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is a well-crafted role-playing adventure with one major flaw: the western localization is horrid according to its players. After receiving quite a bit of backlash over this problem, NIS America President and CEO Takuro Yamashita responded in a letter to fans stating how the company plans to address the issue. Yamashita acknowledges and apologizes for the mistakes (described as grammatical errors, typos, and inconsistencies). He promises to fix them by having a new translator and editor re-evaluate the entire script, re-translating where needed. Additionally, an internal investigation into how the original translation went out the door in the first place has begun to ensure something similar doesn't happen in the future. The work is slated to be completed by the end of November. At that point, the new translation will arrive as a patch for the PS4 and Vita versions of the game. The delayed Steam version will include the changes when it launches at a yet-to-be-determined date. If you're playing Ys VIII, how do you feel about the upcoming script improvements? Were you as unhappy with the original translations as other fans?

  15. If a recent trademark filing is to be believed, the Nintendo 64 may not be the next console Nintendo gives the Classic Edition treatment. First reported by Anime News Network, a Japanese trademark Twitter account that posts trademark registrations tweeted a filing that included a picture of a Game Boy (in the header above). The trademark was listed under the category of " Programs for household video games" among other, similar distinctions. Bear in mind this could always go nowhere, but its worth noting similar reports surfaced for the SNES Classic before that was announced. Take a look at the tweet yourself here, but keep in mind that its all in Japanese. What do you think of the likelihood that this leads to a Game Boy Classic Edition? Would you be interested in one?
