While I would’ve preferred a blockbuster video game based off of the film Pacific Rim, this will have to do. Although, while watching the in-game trailer which we have embedded above, my enthusiasm has diminished.
The Pacific Rim video game tie-in is expected to be released digitally along side the film’s release on July 12, for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Store and PC distribution channels. The title is being developed by Yuke’s, which on their off days program for the WWE video games.
Players will have the choice to control between the Kaiju’s; who escape into the cities of earth by a crack in the Pacific Ocean/dimension, or the humans that control giant robots to protect their planet.

EA is betting on “ground breaking” new features will make UFC 2014 a hit. According the the developers, they build a new technology call Full Body detection, where each fighter will react with every punch.
Check out the trailer for UFC 2014 above. Expect to see it in stores in spring of 2014.
Not much information has been released, but Microsoft has just announced a brand new Killer Instinct is coming. According to the company, we’ve been asking and they have listened. A quick teaser was shown, and we have that after the jump.
Activision has released a trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, to the Interwebs.
The trailer specifically shows off Michelangelo and some of the moves he is capable when gamers get their digital hands on the game. The game is clearly is a classic beat him, but combined into a 3-D world and well it does look hectic, the combat looks slow. And if the game is more than a few hours long, it might feel redundant. Of course this is all speculation from me watching the video. What the hell do I know?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will be available as a downloadble game for the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network.
And a side note, when I was a kid I thought it would be awesome to be friends with the Turtles. But I’m older, and when I think about it, I think they would smell…Yeah! I’m pretty sure they would.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced a new Batman: Arkhamvideo game, which was revealed by Game Informer. Officially titled Batman: Arkham Origins, the game will follow a younger and inexperience Cape Crusader, as he encounters many of the familiar, yet infamous villains for the very first time. So far, the systems announced for the prequel are the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and the PC. As of now, the company has yet to confirm if we’ll see the game on the next-generation of systems. Although, I have a hard time believing that it won’t happen at some point down the line.
The publisher has chosen to elected a new team to develop Batman: Arkham Origins, which is Warner Bros. Games Montréal. And Eric Holmes has been signed to helm the project. Holmes has been a lead for many other ‘blockbuster titles,’ including Gears of War 3, Prototype and even another comic book character turned into a video game which was The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game was released as a $10 digital download back in 2010, around the time the film was released. The retro feel, beat em’ up title, was inspired more by the comic than the movie, and was met with positive reviews.
In a strange move, Ubisoft has revealed downloadable content for the year old title. The DLC is slated to be uploaded onto Xbox Live (presumably PSN) next week, and has a price tag of $2 (160 Microsoft Points). The update will finally give owners the chance to play online multiplayer, which was something I didn’t understand why it wasn’t available at launch…two years ago. (more…)
Sony has confirmed that an untold amount of employees at the studio SuperBot were laid-off. Before the official statement from Sony, the news was revealed by IGN, who was tipped by Insomniac’s Mike Birkhead’s Tweets.
The Culver City, California-based studio has only developed one title, which was the heavily inspired Smash Bros. game called PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which was released this past November. (more…)
If you grew up in New England, surely you would know about the American restaurant chain called the Ground Round. As a child it was one of the top places I would wanted to dine. Not because the food was incredible, in fact, it wasn’t great at all. But they had one thing…and that was a small arcade room. I would order my food, and beg my Mom for a few quarters and mash some buttons as my burger was being grilled.
Looking back on it, there were two titles I distinctly remember playing all the time at the ol’ Round, and both titles were developed by Konami, AND both were extremely popular 90′s TV shows. One was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And the other…the FREAKING The Simpsons. (more…)
With Namco confirming that their hit fighting series Tekken was coming to the newly announced Nintendo Wii U system, it certainly raised some eyebrows. I mean, this was the first time Tekken would be coming to a Nintendo console, and only the second time it would be playable on something Nintendo — in 2002 Tekken Advance was released for the Game Boy Advance.
During a brief video during the announcement of the Wii U, we saw a quick glimpse of Tekken and a possible fighter editor for the game. We now know for a fact that players will be able to do just that, and even more, thanks to a new video released by Namco foretelling us some of the features the title will include. (more…)
EA announced that they will be publishing Insomniac’s next game, titled OverStrike. In the past, we’ve been used to Insomniac games being exclusive to the PlayStation 3, but now even Xbox 360 owners can enjoy the videogames created by the talented studio.
It’s hard to grasp what kind of genre OverStrike will fall into, mainly because the video is nothing but CG. But if I were to guess, it will be a third-person action title, with fighting and shooting elements. It’s also evident that humor will play a huge role into the narrative of the story, and that the developers do not want the audience to take the characters so seriously. That could be a breath of fresh air for once, considering most have forgotten that comedy can also tell a fun story.
