Following up on the last batch of class-specific trailers for Ubisoft’s For Honor, a new trio of trailers has launched to show off another three warrior classes, one each from the Samurai, Knight and Viking factions.
Metal Gear Solid V has left a somewhat rocky legacy, what with all the Kojima controversy (Kojitroversy?). Despite that, it still comes highly recommended, and Konami have announced Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience, which packages both games and all their DLC. Sneak behind enemy lines for more.
Song of the Deep is quite a departure for Insomniac Games – not that I’m complaining or anything. I was a bit worried about the direction they were headed after the unnecessary (but likeable) reboot of Ratchet & Clank, which was seemingly done to cash-in with the movie and piddled all over the original story.
Now they’ve turned right around and released an indie-flavoured passion project in the form of Song of the Deep. For lack of better options, I’m forced to use to the term “metroidvania” as it most closely describes the genre to which Song of the Deep can be likened, one which emphasises exploration and the discovery of objects/abilities needed to progress through the game.
Boss battles are an iconic staple of game design. They test the player and their knowledge of the game, and from a narrative perspective they also test the protagonist/s. Despite their prominence, games comprised solely of boss battles are surprisingly rare, with titles like Shadow of the Colossus and Titan Souls being standouts. Furi is the latest addition to this roster, and it focuses nearly all of its attention on single combat.
It’s not April, so I guess this is real. A little while back, IO Interactive ran a campaign to vote for a celebrity target to join Hitman. This led to a competition between Gary Cole and Gary Busey. Busey “won”, and his in-game avatar will be murderable (totally a real word) in the game soon.
