Following last week’s “Panopticon” trailer, Sony Japan announces “Freedom Wars”, a PlayStation Vita multiplayer action game, scheduled for release in 2014.
“The player is a criminal in a post-apocalyptic near future, sentenced to a million years of hard labor, fighting for his freedom,” a Japanese press release reads according to a NeoGAF user, “By completing missions where you rescue civilians and allies who have been captured by huge enemies known as Abductors, you can reduce your sentence.”
The game supports a maximum of 8 players at a time in both co-op and competitive modes, and players all over Japan can play together via the Wi-Fi and Adhoc.
The announcement was accompanied by a new less mysterious trailer and a few screenshots.
I never thought I would ever post anything from EA on this site. I think I just broke one of the 10 gaming commandments.
Anyway, DICE has released case art for the PS4 and X1(Yes, That is what I will be calling the Xbox One since that looks better) game Battlefield 4 and this might be a sign of what the case borders might be. The design for case borders is one of the things that changes every generation and it seems to be the case here.
It seems Capcom will be releasing Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles Of Mystara in a disc form on PS3 in Japan.
This is not unusual due to some downloadable games being released on discs in Japan and Europe. The disc version will cost about 3,990 yen and is being called a limited edition but nothing has been announced about it’s contents.
Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles Of Mystara will be release by Capcom for the Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, Nintendo Wii U eShop and PC this June worldwide.

Today, the big reveal for Microsoft’s new console revealed the XBOX ONE, the third in the line of the successful Xbox series.
The system will contain a 500gb hard drive, Blu Ray drive, built in Wifi, an 8-core processor and 3.0 USB ports. The system will also come standard with the newly upgraded kinect and a newly rebuilt controller. Sadly, the game has no Backwards compatability due to the processor but at least Microsoft explained why the system has no BC rather than just tell us it’s selling us our old stuff. Microsoft also states it will still support the 360 with games and apps.
XBOX ONE will ship later this year. Tune to Geimaku for more information on pricing and release during E3.

Directed by Lee Hardcastle, this impressive short claymation clip features Resident Evil’s rockie cop Leon S. Kennedy as he takes out a drug cartel during a drug bust gone wrong. Yeah, this confirms it; Leon was a total Badass, even before he killed zombies!
I need to explain something. when you make a female version of a character, you need to make it female. Shape, look, style and design. What you do not do is add female hands, legs and a miniskirt made from the jacket the character. All I ask is if you going with sexy legs add hair and a sleeveless version of HUNK’s outfit.
In case you cannot tell, I think the first paid character DLC for Resident Evil: Revelations HD is stupid. The first DLC pack features a character called Lady Hunk who is HUNK with lady legs and hands and a mutated Rachel. The 2 characters will cost $2.99 or 240 MSP. Also announced are weapon upgrade packs for Jill, Jessica and Parker at .99 or 80 MSP and Raid Mode specific weapon upgrade packs for 160 MSP or 1.99. If you go beyond the break you can see why I am confused by Lady Hunk.
Resident Evil: Revelations will be released by Capcom on May 21st in North America, May 23rd in Japan and Australia and May 24th in Europe for the Nintendo Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC.

Announced last week during Nintendo Direct Japan, Sega is bringing the Yakuza 1&2 HD Collection to the Wii U.
The set will feature the first 2 Yakuza games with all the upgrades done on the PS3 version along with the ability to play the game on the gamepad and see the maps on the gamepad. The Yakuza games have been released overseas as well so a North America or Europe release might be possible.
Yakuza 1&2 HD collection will be released by Sega in Japan for the Wii U in 2013. No international release has been announced. The PS3 version is available now in Japan.

It’s always a pleasure to talk about action games. Look, for instance, on the daring leap that Santa Monica has taken with this game. A multiplayer mode in a franchise with five big entries focused solely on single-player. Sure: it’s Sony. They’ve got money.
Even so, it doesn’t hurt to play it safe, specially when you’ve got a potential God of War 4 or Descent or… Betrayal HD.
Nostalgia plays a big role when you decide to play this game again. While we are quite far from the oft-requested HD remake, some people would be satisfied to have slight improvements such as upscaled graphics and pristine sound quality.
But we are talking about Square Enix, so you can bet there is a catch. Prepare for some tradeoffs (or rather, sacrifices) if you’re willing to pay 12 gil, specially if you really want to play the same game from 1997.
Today Konami released the release date for the North American release of the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection.
This set comes with nearly every single MGS game available on the PS1, PS2 and PS3 and a 100 page artbook with promo art from around the globe. The set will retail for $49.99 and be 2 discs long. Above you can see the set.
Too much Nintendo, Too little time. In previous Nintendo Directs Iwata stated that this year is The Year of Luigi and one of the items announced was New Super Luigi U. Now we have release info and pricing.
The game will be a 4 player game as before but instead of Mario it’s Luigi that’s the main character. Replacing Mario is the character Nebbit who is invincible but cannot use power ups. The game will be available digitally on June 20th in North America for $19.99 and in Europe for an unknown price with a physical release coming July 26th in Europe and August 20th in North America for $29.99. No prices for the European releases have been announced.

In what could be the biggest shake up in terms of E3 history, Nintendo announced that they have teamed up with Best Buy to bring select E3 demos to Best Buy stores in North America and Canada this June.
The stores will feature demos of both Wii U and 3DS games. Nintendo did something like this for the Wii U in December of last year and I was able to try the system then which influenced me to buy a basic system and a copy of Zombi U. This year Nintendo has forgone E3 and is instead bringing everything to the public with Nintendo Direct and now this. Nintendo seems more interested in listening to the response of the people than trying to make money and although they lost money this year it seems like the old days of the gamer comes first might be coming back.
E3 will be June 11-13. Xbox will have it’s conference on June 10th along with Sony. Nintendo stated they will have a Nintendo Direct around this time.
