ReCore [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

ReCore would be a really solid entry into an otherwise under-appreciated genre, action/adventure, if it wasn't held back by a host of technical problems. The game lends concepts from titles like Zelda and Mega Man, but falls short on the excution of a lot of its great ideas.

The Pros: 

+Unique and fun take on action combat.
+Plenty of diversity in corebot customization.
+Beautiful world, both open and dungeons. 
+Plenty of great ideas.

The Cons: 

-Loading times are painfully long (even reloading sections).
-Stuttering/lagging and massive frame drops. Rating : 

If the idea of a Zelda-esque adventure title in the far-flung future created by gaming God Keiji Inafune and the creative minds behind Metroid Prime sounds like an exciting prospect, then you might appreciate the amount of fun I had with the first hour of the Microsoft Studios project ReCore. Unfortunately, that kind of high octane excitement is quickly removed due to a host of technical issues that hold the game back from being truly great and instead produce something that I would merely define as "good."

Mighty No. 9 [First Impressions]

A couple of years back I had the opportunity to attend GDC (Game Developers Conference) thanks to my time here at Shogun. To this day I hold it to be the epitome of gaming conventions. If you have the opportunity to attend, you simply must.

Keiji Inafune's Yaiba Revealed As Ninja Gaiden Spin-Off

The 2012 installment of the Tokyo Game Show has officially kicked off more or less thanks to Sony’s dull if slightly predictable press conference.  In some ways TGS has always been known as a PlayStation centric event, but the show is far from being a complete dud as of now. While announcements will be made and new reveals of existing games will be shown, we do have our first true surprise of the show thanks to Keiji Inafune and the folks over at Tecmo Koei.

Keiji Inafune (Dead Rising) Returns To The Zombie Genre With Yaiba [Video + Screens]

Keiji Inafune is a busy man as he’s not only working on three main projects right now, including the awesome PS Vita title Soul Sacrifice, but he has just announced yet another brand new endeavor. Once again going to his roots just as he did recently in J.J. Rockets did, Keiji is returning to the world of zombie action in Yaiba, a new project from his studio Comcept.

Keiji Inafune Goes Old-School With J.J. Rockets

He may have gone off the rails a bit by being brutally honest, but Keiji Inafune is back on track when it comes to be a game developer. After leaving Capcom towards the end of 2010, Keiji went on to create Intercept and Comcept, two new companies whose focus is on both gaming and other forms of interactive entertainment.  After laying low for a while Keiji eventually unveiled the kids centric 3DS game King of Pirates and the ultra mature PS Vita action-RPG Soul Sacrifice.

Notable Japanese Devs Set To Release Original Games For Mobile Platforms

Whether we love it or hate it mobile/social gaming is here to stay and could ultimately become the de facto standard when it comes to how we game.  Games found on the App Store may not beat titles set for the PlayStation 3 or the next iteration of Sony’s console, but mobile gaming is no longer a small niche market that merely consists of Bejeweled and a side-scrolling Tony Hawk game that looks like a four-year old created it.

Keiji Inafune's First Major Post Capcom Project Could Be Out Sooner Than Expected

When Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune left Capcom last October the video game industry was waiting with baited breathe to see what the famed creator would do next. After spilling the beans on what made him leave Capcom (there’s still a lot of resentment and simmering rage), Keiji revealed that he was not opening just one studio, but two new studios – both of which with different specialties in the entertainment and video game fields.

Former Capcom honcho Keiji Infanue Reveals His New Companies

After having to delay the time of his meeting due to the events that transpired in Japan several weeks ago, former Capcom R&D head Keiji Infanue has revealed what’s next for him in the world of video games.  Since Keiji’s departure from Capcom last October it was unclear if he would continue his career in the video game industry or perhaps call it a day and look towards uncharted territory, much like what former Namco employee Keita Takahashi has done.
