PS4 is Getting an Exclusive Spider-Man Game

thegeekdojo.net

The game is being developed by Insomniac Games, whose resume includes Ratchet and Clank, and Sunset Overdrive.

In the trailer, Peter has a new suit with a white spider on his torso. Initially I did not like it, but it has grown on me rather quickly. Other than the trailer teaser, there is not much information on the game at this time. The fact that I know this exist is enough for me though. I have been dreaming of a good Spider-Man game for years now. It was definitely a surprise to see at the Sony press conference. Check out the trailer below.

The New God of War is Indeed Moving to Norse Mythology

thegeekdojo.net

Rumors had been floating around for a while now. People did not quite get it and why Kratos would still be alive, but it is indeed happening and it looks amazing.

It almost seems like it’s going to be a reboot of some sort. This is the 4th game in the franchise, but the title is not God of War 4, it’s just God of War. With that being said, I think this new foray into Norse mythology is more of a “what if” Kratos was put in a different environment.

The demo showed off at the Sony PlayStation presser features a bearded Kratos teaching his son how to be a man. Check out the trailer below.

What Are Ya Playin’ This Weekend?

It’s finally here again gamers! It’s the weekend and I hope you are able to get plenty of game time in.

thegeekdojo.net

I will be playing quite a bit of Overwatch. That game has my undivided attention for the most part. I will also be playing Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. I took a bit of a break from it back in February shortly after Street Fighter V came out. I dove back into it within this past week and I hate that I stopped playing. It is a very good RPG.

That’s enough about me, what about you? What are you playing this weekend? Sound off in the comment section.

Capcom Details the Big June Update for Street Fighter V

xOIN7Xs.jpg

June looks to be a pretty big month for Street Fighter V. The long awaited story mode “A Shadow Falls,” drops this month as well as the next DLC chracter, Ibuki.

“A Shadow Falls” will be a 3 to 4 hour story. It will be 5 chapters long and will drop at the end of this month. The story takes place between Street Fighter III and Street Fighter IV. Players will be able to witness all events that took place between those two games.

Plot description:

“A Shadow Falls,” depicts the ultimate battle between the evil Shadaloo organization and the heroic World Warriors who rise up against them. Seven “Black Moons” are deployed by Shadaloo, granting M. Bison unimaginable power and enveloping the earth in total darkness. Seeing the moons mysteriously appear in the sky, Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li embark on an epic journey around the world to retrieve fragment pieces that are the key to stopping the “Black Moons” before it’s too late. Along the way, they encounter the rest of the World Warriors, each of whom have their own agendas and motivations in mind. The final battle between good and evil begins now… who will RISE UP?

Another bit of cool news is that all six DLC characters will be fully playable in story mode. Balrog, Urien, and Juri’s story mode will be available to play before their actual release later this year. This will give you a preview of the upcoming characters so you can get a feel for their play styles.

The Zenny shop will not be put into the game. Transactions will be handled through the PlayStation Store and Steam. Alex and Guile will no longer be free to play when the update goes live. Here is a breakdown of how much everything will cost with in-game and real currency:

As you can see, premium costumes are also included in the chart. You will finally be able to get that “Hot Ryu” skin you missed out on, because you didn’t get the game from GameStop.

It makes the Street Fighter fan base feel a little bit more at ease now that Capcom has addressed the communication problem. A lot of people, including myself were a bit ticked off that Capcom waited until the end of last moth to tell us Ibuki was getting delayed. Lets hope Capcom can keep us this informed as time goes by.

Here is a Quick Look at Cuphead’s Platforming Gameplay

The old school, Disney cartoon inspired game Cuphead is almost ready to be released on Xbox One and PC. Just ahead of E3, StudioMDHR along with IGN decided it would be nice to show off some gameplay.

The game features run-and-gun gameplay that could be compared to Mega Man. In the video you can see Cuphead fight his way through a forest level ducking, dodging, jumping, and shooting a few enemies you will encounter while playing the game. Check out the IGN video above.

Cuphead was shown off at E3 2014 when it was less than 50% complete. It was originally supposed to come out last year, but StudioMDHR had to delay the game. It is now expected to come out this year on XB1 and PC, but there is no release date just yet. Despite the delay, it looks like StudioMDHR has been hard at work. The game still looks great and has my attention. Cuphead’s art direction makes it one of the most original games I’ve seen in quite some time. I will definitely be picking it up.
