I love JRPGs, but the translated voice actors are often horrible. You just need to play Final Fantasy X and listen to those awful voices and laughs to realize that localization isn't always a smooth process for Japanese games. Luckily, it seems the latest Final Fantasies have some excellent voice talent on board.
Geoff Keighley is going all out for his all new Game Awards show. We haven't heard anything about Spike still running their VGAs (or VGX, or whatever it's called), so Keighley's show might just be the only major gaming TV event for the end of the year, and it's going to be big.
When you think fighting games, you think Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter and Tekken. Thing is, there are a ton of other great games in that genre, just waiting to be explored. Such as Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Which might be the looniest game around in the fisticuffs market.
You guys know I am easily afraid in games. I love playing horror games, but I don't always have the stomach (or bladder) for it. I think I'm better than Darryn, though, who still hasn't made it past the menu screen for ZombiU. Daylight is coming at the end of this month, and it is sure to make you cry for your mommy.
Get your 2014 calendars out and circle March 18, because Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes finally has a date. Plus a bunch of new info sneaked in as well.
So, Darryn told you about the awesomeness that was the new Titanfall trailer shown at Spike's VGX this weekend. But, as always with Spike's VGX, there were plenty more where that came from.
There are way, way too many trailers, demos and next-gen engines from Sony’s PlayStation 4 event – so we though instead of littering the front page we’ll stick them all in one easy to follow post.
I might be getting a little too damn excited for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. One might even say that I’m whoring myself out for the game. But dammit, IT’S MAH BURGIMA! The game is almost out, and the marketing machine is in full swing right now, as a cybernetically enhanced katana blow has just busted open a gushing vein of new trailers. Check ‘em out for yourself.
The Tokyo Game Show, Japan’s premier gaming event is happening right now - and the tubes are currently being inundated with all manner of trailer showcasing the latest in Japanese games. Instead of posting ‘em all one by one, we’ve lumped ‘em all together - so grab some Ramen and take in the best that Japan has to offer.
When it comes to drumming up some support for an upcoming video game, nothing works better than a slick trailer. We’ve all been a victim to this, and me especially, which is why I’m currently swimming in collectors edition that I otherwise did not truly need.
It’s absolutely amazing what a well constructed trailer can do to an otherwise rational being, as a few minutes of polished gameplay with some snappy track laid over it can easily disguise any flaws in a game.
So here’s the question: Do video game trailers actually get you excited enough to buy the game? Is it the impressive CGI that hooks you? Celebrity endorsements you trust? Dubstep? Let us know below.
The official PlayStation blog caught up with 2 of the guys from Naughty Dog right after the VGA’s and had a quick chat with them about The Last of Us and how they managed to keep it a secret for so long.
Amazingly they’ve had a full second team working on The Last of Us now for a while and no one had picked up that they were creating a full new IP inside the Uncharted studios.
With all the announcements, trailers and celebrity endorsements at the Video Game Awards, it’s easy to forget that it’s actually an awards ceremony. Actually, it’s especially easy to forget - because it seems as the years have gone on, the awards have taken a complete backseat to the PR shenanigans; so much so that the actuals awards bit wasn’t even televised. That’s right - there were hardly any awards handed out at the Video Game Awards; that mostly happened pre show. Really, the Spike VGA’s have become nothing more than a showcase for new games - and sexy trailers of games we already knew about.
I’m not here to moan about the VGA’s though (I’ll leave that to you), but rather to let you know who won awards. You’ll find the full list of winners after the jump.
This yearâ€™s Gamescom in Cologne Germany has kicked off, bringing us a deluge of trailers for some of the hottest up-coming games. Way too many, we realised, to do a post for each â€“ so hereâ€™s a collection of our favourites today.
Hit the jump to see what the hell Lollipop Chainsaw is all about; a lot of fighting game goodness; the combat and environments in the new emo Devil May Cry; how Asuraâ€™s Wrath invokes memories of Godhand; a real hardcore Kinect game; 3D zombie action and more!
E3 2011 has been rocking our socks off with a lot of great games and surprises. If there's one thing that E3 graces us with though, it's tons of trailers and gameplay videos.
We have compiled a MASSIVE gallery of all the videos and trailers that you shouldn't miss. Here they are, all in one place for your viewing pleasure.
While the Mass Effect 2 surprise has eclipsed most other announcements it wasnâ€™t like the Sony press conference was a total bore. We have scoured the net to try and find all the trailers for the big hitting titles that were announced and they are all now viewable in one place..
The Resistance 3 one is incredibly creepy and really well done and it seems to confirm a New York setting.
