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.
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.

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.
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.
Also known as IF Prototype LQ-84i, this mechanical beast plays its part in the main game’s narrative from both sides of the intense cybernetic war. Owner of a sentient and superior AI compared to his mass-produced clones, Bladewolf struggles to become more than just a pawn in Desperado‘s plans.
In the other hand, Platinum hasn’t shown the same resolve to create this side-story.
I have ran out of ways to say how insane this game is. It’s not even funny how insane it is now.
Yesterday, Kadokawa games detailed the first run bonus’s which will be included with Killer is Dead in first run copies. The first item is Betty, a fourth mondo girl who is a vampire and has the gigalo mission Bloodsucking Tempress, the second item is Episode 51: The Man Who Stole the Blood which will also feature Betty and the final item is an indestructible pair of gigolo glasses called the Super Mondo Eye which no matter how displeased you make a girl they will never break.
All this game needs is a girl from space, a ninja temptress and a pirate princess and it hits a 10.0 on the fetish meter.
Killer is Dead will be released by Kadokawa games in Japan on August 1st, Xseed games in North America in Summer 2013 and Deep Silver in Europe in 2013 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Today, or yesterday it’s different time zones to be honest. The site for Dairy Fencer F went live.
The site shows off the first screenshots of the game. The shots show off the battle systems menu design, the main character facing monsters and a piece of location art. The game is shaping up and has a lot to live up too with it’s pedigree.
Fairy Fencer F will be released by Compile Heart in 2013 in Japan for the PS3. No word on a international release.
