Resident Evil 8 Village DLC is in the works

Capcom’s E3 showcase was lackluster to say the least, mainly because the company didn’t have too much new stuff to show. Not even a Mega Man announcement, man! However at least Resident Evil 8 Village got a little bit of spotlight.

At the start of the showcase, the company confirmed that downloadable content is in the works for the game. When Village was first made, it was a single player experience with a story that had an opening and a close. However, with the game selling millions of copies, it appears that Capcom has changed its tune, and will tell even more of its story. No word yet as to who the DLC will feature, but it’s on the way.

In other news, the company also confirmed that the star-studded multiplayer mode of the game, ReVerse, will finally make its debut next month. Again, a date wasn’t given, but it’s not too far off. Check out the trailer below to get an idea of what you’re in for.

Resident Evil 8 Village is available now for PlayStation consoles, Xbox consoles and PC.

Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties is Returning and We’re Not Sure Why

Limited Run Games had some fairly impressive announcements today – probably the most entertaining for today’s E3 action. However there’s one game that dares to beg the question “Why?!” – and it’s the return of an unlikely cult favorite.

The company announced at the close of its Limited Run Games broadcast that one of “the most requested and anticipated game(s) of ALL TIME” is coming, and it’s…Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties.

For those unfamiliar, this truly awful (and hilarious) 3DO game first released back in 1993, and became the stuff of cult classics with its terrible production value and adult content. Still, it attracted enough of an audience to get interest with modern gamers, and, well, now it’s coming your way.

The game will make its way to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch in physical form, as well as digitally alongside PC. As for when it’ll be released, we’re not sure. Although it probably won’t be long.

Anyway, check out the tweet below, and when you’re done scratching your head, endure everything that is Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties. We…really have no idea. Still, coupled with Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, it is keeping E3 interesting.

Bloodrayne Betrayal getting HD remake for its 10th Anniversary

It appears that WayForward is hard at work on another remake, just in time for the game’s Tenth Anniversary.

Bloodrayne Betrayal, which originally made its debut on consoles and PC back in 2011, is getting the remaster treatment, complete with hand-drawn visuals and awesome, bloody side-scrolling gameplay. For good measure, it’ll also feature new voice acting, including Laura Bailey as the femme fatale and Troy Baker as Kagan.

The game will make its way to Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, Nintendo Switch and PC later this year, while a physical version is also in the works for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation systems. You can check out the trailer from Limited Run Games’ Twitter feed below. There’s no word on the game’s physical release date, but it shouldn’t be too far behind the digital version. It’ll be published by Ziggurat, in conjunction with Limited Run.

Sonic Colors Ultimate gameplay debut

Earlier this month, Sega let the Hedgehog out of the bag and revealed that Sonic Colors would make a return in Ultimate form for modern consoles. Now, to sweeten the deal, it’s debuted some new gameplay as part of GamesRadar’s E3 showcase.

Viewable below, the trailer gives fans a chance to see the Tropical Resort level in action, along with Sonic’s speedy abilities. This includes hitting platforms, bopping enemies, and, as always, going fast. Because that’s what he does, right?

Like the classic 2010 Wii game before it, Sonic Colors Ultimate focuses on utilizing Wisps, strange alien beings that grant Sonic special powers. This version of the game will introduce a new Jade Green version, along with all the classic variants fans have come to expect. Oh, and we mentioned the graphics look really good, right? You can see that for yourself.

Sonic Colors Ultimate arrives on PlayStation consoles, Xbox consoles, PC and Nintendo Switch on September 7.

GigaBash brings the kaiju bashing goodness to PS4, PC

Do you recall earlier this year when we talked about how Godzilla was such a rarity on the PlayStation 4? That’s mainly because no one really develops monstrous beat-em-ups anymore. Apparently, though, Republic Games heard our cries, because they’ve got a kaiju brawler that’s sure to be our speed when it drops later this year for PlayStation 4 and PC.

In GigaBash, which debuted its new trailer earlier today during E3’s Future Games Show showcase, players will choose from a variety of monsters and attempt to trash their opposition with powerful moves.

Here’s the game’s official storyline:

“For centuries, human technology and culture ruled the surface, yet the deeper secrets of the Earth lay hidden from our eyes. Until one day, the discovery of a new form of energy called forth the ancient terrors unknown to mankind. Thus began the rise of monsters around the world. Their battle against us and their own kind, raged throughout the world, leaving only destruction in their wake.

“Unleash Chaos and go on a rampage with up to 4 players, against friends or family, but only ONE can be KING. Play as giant monsters or heroes, and discover the secrets of their origin. Featuring familiar cities and exotic landscapes around the world, no place is safe from the coming havoc.”

The trailer below gives you a good idea of what you can do in this monstrous universe, as well as the imaginative characters involved. And, yes, you can throw buildings, because…why not.

We can’t wait to get into GigaBash, especially when it comes to mixing it up with friends.

Square Enix teams up with Marvel again for Guardians of the Galaxy

The partnership between Marvel and Square Enix continues to blossom. Along with the growth of Marvel’s Avengers, Eidos Montreal is hard at work on a whole new action/adventure for the publisher – and they’re calling upon the Guardians!

Yep, Guardians of the Galaxy is returning to gaming for the first time since Telltale Games tried to cover the team in a narrative adventure a few years ago. It’s a third-person action/adventure game that features the whole squad – including Star-Lord (well, Peter), Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon and good ol’ Groot. For the most part, though, you’ll play as Star-Lord, using his blasters and maneuvering to take on adversaries.

The game will feature various characters from the Guardians Marvel universe, with a story put together by comic book writer Dan Abnett. It looks like it’ll be a lot of fun – and it’s actually coming this year, on October 26th, for Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles and PC. And unlike Avengers, it’ll focus on a single player perspective.

Also, did we mention the freakin’ amazing soundtrack?!

Check out the trailer and first gameplay look below and come get your love! (Mind the tentacle.)

Diablo II: Resurrected raises hell this September

After being officially confirmed at Blizzcon a few months ago, it appears that Diablo II: Resurrected is set to raise hell on the main stage.

Today, during the Xbox E3 showcase, Activision Blizzard confirmed that Diablo II: Resurrected will come to PC and Xbox consoles starting on September 23rd.

A new trailer, featured below, offers some fresh new gameplay, put together by the team at Vicarious Visions, who previously worked on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. So it’s obvious they have some experience when it comes to offering a fresh coat of paint to a classic game experience.

Here’s the game’s official description: “Pursue the mysterious Dark Wanderer and fight the denizens of hell as you uncover the fate of the Prime Evils Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, now in all-new 3D graphics. Experience the genre-defining Diablo gameplay featuring robust RPG character progression, incredibly deep itemization, and visceral hack-and-slash combat.”

There’s no word yet if the game will also come to other platforms (like PlayStation and Nintendo Switch) on the 23rd, but it seems likely. For now, you can enjoy the trailer below and pre-order the game for Xbox platforms here. There also appears to be a beta on the way, so keep your eyes peeled for more details. In the meantime, prepare…to go to Hell!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles join Brawlhalla this week

As if the foursome’s Shredder’s Revenge brawler wasn’t enough to get excited over this year, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are also ready to duke it out on the Brawlhalla front.

Ubisoft announced that the team will join the beat-em-up this week, starting on June 16th. Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael will all join the party, each with their own distinctive fighting styles – and of course, a lot of pizza.

Check out the debut trailer below. It’s unknown how much the characters costs, but you should be able to pick them up in-game.

Let’s see how they fare against Lara Croft, Hellboy, and the WWE superstars, yeah? Cowabunga indeed.

Buildings Have Feelings Too!

Add title

A sassy build it game.

Buildings Have Feelings Too, an interesting title for this cute little game. In this world, all your buildings have feelings! This ranges from happy to sad, to emotionally devastated.

Start the game out as a small local building striving to help the neighborhood, turn it around into something beautiful and full of people. Walk through the tutorial led by your local grocer warehouse and apartment rentals unit to upkeep their health and happiness.

You’ll make mistakes, as any growing city does, you’ll build factories where they shouldn’t be and add in apartments where they will fit. Learning how to improve not only the amount of buildings you have, but the quality of those buildings.

Once you’ve gained your ‘street smarts’ (haha see what I did there), you’ll be able to buy new plots of land and expand your street into a new functional city! Create dock-works for your fishy warehouse workers, use the main street to pump groceries and local fine dining. Or crank up the jam and make it party city with pubs on every corner!

This game is simplistic and a great casual game for people who enjoy farming, upgrading and random coy remarks about the city they are creating and the weird misshaped buildings between them. You will go through a vast array of building styles and types, as we start from the Victorian Era and move all the way through to Modern Day. Expand your neighborhood and find your niche in the new economy.

Will you upgrade your city and have it rustling and bustling with business? Or will you crumble like the old uncared for bricks? Take your time in this game, as one wrong building could affect the entirety of the neighborhood. You know what they say, good neighbors make for great neighborhoods.

This game was a fun casual game to play

Riders Republic first look: talk about going Steep

After being announced last year, the extreme sports oriented Riders Republic has gotten some good attention from us, if only because of the various activities it has to offer. However if you’ve not yet caught it in action, a new deep dive trailer for the game just premiered on Ubisoft Forward – and gives us a lot to look forward to.

In the game, you get to choose from over “50+ player events” via Community that “randomly pop up on the map.” And like the previously released Steep before it, it has all sorts of activities that you can take part in. There’s riding the slopes with a snowboard; there’s hitting the dirt trail with a bike; and you can even do some flying in a wingsuit if you feel compelled. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, as the game will give you lots to do, as well as customization options galore and a ton of ways to progress your rider.

Oh, and there will be multiplayer as well, as you can Mass Start races with a bunch of other competitors in the best way possible. Compete for the top spot and win your way to even more events as you go along! Not to mention trick challenges that await you and your buddies, along with online cup tournaments, arenas and races, and a whole lot more.

The trailer below gives you an idea of what to expect. Thus far, the visuals look spectacular for this game, and remind us of long-lost extreme sports stuff like SSX and Downhill Domination (remember those?). Also the music sounds like it’ll have a nice vibe to it as well.

Before you ask, yes, the game will have cross-play and cross-progression as well. No word if that’s starting from day one, but it seems likely.

Check out the trailer below and prepare for take a ride with the Republic starting on September 2nd!
