Ever since the first Kingdom Hearts game, I have always been a big fan. The mash up of Square Enix and Disney characters is such a unique concept that always kept me intrigued. Despite the number of spinoffs and the convoluted story, my fandom stayed mostly intact. Coming off of Kingdom Hearts 3, which was fun, but could have been better, I was wondering where Square would take the KH universe next. Fast forward to the year 2020 and the answer is a new rhythm game.
As announced earlier today, PlayStation has delayed Destruction AllStars to February 2021 and all preorders will be refunded. If you were looking forward to this game as a launch title, this news is unfortunate. The bright side is, upon its February release, Destruction AllStars will be available to PS Plus customers at no additional charge.
What’s good y’all? Despite the state of the world, I hope you had a great week. We have been graced with another weekend and I hope you are able to get plenty of game time in. Speaking of games, let’s chat. What games are on your gaming playlist this weekend?
FRACTER, originally releasing on mobile platforms in 2018, makes it’s way to the Nintendo Switch, this week. This unique puzzle game has you follow a young hero who is determined to fight back against darkness, with light. Thanks to the dope folks over at The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild, I was able to get an early look.
E3 2018 has officially come to a close. It smacked us right in the face with plenty of new game announcements, game previews, some solid press conferences, and some not so solid press conferences. *cough cough* Square Enix *cough cough* Now begins the hard part of waiting for these new games to actually release to the public! Here are 10 that I am impatiently waiting for the most:
This new trailer features the newly announced Android16, Android 18, Krillin, Piccolo, and Future Trunks. Dragon Ball FighterZ beta sign ups are also live. You can sign up here! check out the trailer below.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will be available on XB1, PS4, and PC February 2018.
WWO’s producer, Stephan Bugaj, recently uploaded a video showing off just how the game will work. The in-game video features some of the game’s locations, how the bounty system works, as well as the combat mechanics.
The game itself looks great. It will be interesting to see how this game will stack up against Red Dead: Redemtion 2’s inevitable multiplayer. Either way, Wild West Online looks incredibly ambitions and I will be checking it out for sure. Check out the gameplay video below.
You can reserve a spot for the upcoming alpha play test at playwwo.com.
Rocket League and Hot Wheels have teamed up to bring 2 of the most iconic cars to the game: Bone Shaker and Twin Mill. Cars will be sold separably and will include exclusive decals with your purchase. Check out the trailer below.
The Hot Wheels DLC will be available on February 21st.
Samurai will be the second new chracter class of the Stormblood expansion. The first was the Red Mage. The new Samurai class will be dps based, unlike FFXI tank based samurai. There will be no base class and will start at level 50. Check out the trailer below to get a good look at the new samurai class along with the new continent, Othard.
Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will be released on June 30th for PC and PS4.
Kolin is otherwise known as Gill’s personal assistant from Street Fighter 3. She has ice based powers and quite a few combos, similar to Karin. Channeling straight from the Capcom Unity blog:
“After working in the shadows for Gill and the secret Illuminati organization, Kolin makes her Street Fighter V debut. First appearing in Street Fighter III, Kolin works behind the scenes in order to fulfill the Prophecy of Miraha and stop any who dare stand in Gill’s way. She is typically calm and collected, but can suddenly fly into a rage when anybody threatens Gill and his plans. Spoiler-alert, she resurrects Nash and uses him as a pawn too, showing she will do anything to achieve her goals.”
Kolin will be available February 28th. Check out her reveal trailer below featuring a new song from hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco.
Check out the Capcom Unity blog for all the extra details, such as fighting style, v-trigger, v-skill, and costumes for Kolin.
