2015 Abuzz – What’s Going On This Year

The hype train keeps a-rollin', and I've found myself sucked into it and disappointed more times than I'd like to remember (Watch_Dogs sits on my shelf as a constant reminder). While I've tried to train myself to remain "cautiously optimistic" there are some titles coming around in 2015 that I just can't help but be psyched for. Video game news sources everywhere are touting 2015 to be the BIG year in games, and I've got one foot on the hype train myself.

So here are just a few games that I've been salivating over for a while, and look forward to stepping into.

Liberation Maiden Arrives On PS3 In Unlikely Form

First premiering on the Nintendo 3DS and then making its way to the iOS platform, Grasshopper Manufacture’s anime shoot-em-up title Liberation Maiden is finally coming to the PS3.  The debut of Liberation Maiden may sound like good news, but the game is ditching the twitch shooting action in favor of something a tad bit different – that of an adventure.

Killer Is Dead Trailer Features More Action and Giant Aliens

Today may be filled with news that can be considered a joke, not just because it’s poorly written, but because it’s April Fool's Day.  While some people may be partaking in the shenanigans, the folks over at Grasshopper Manufacture aren’t since they’ve released a brand new trailer for Killer is Dead.

Devoid of anything that is overly jokey, except for the fact that the Earth has purportedly been stolen and aliens are roaming around, it’s business as usual in this new Killer Is Dead trailer. 

Suda 51 Teases Next Game From Grasshopper Manufacture

Grasshopper Manufacture may not have even finished their upcoming game yet, but the studio is already prepping and discussing, albeit of a cryptic nature, their next title.  While talking about the studio’s forthcoming PS3/Xbox 360 action game Killer Is Dead, GhM mastermind and overall creative genius Suda 51 revealed a few key pieces of info regarding the next game from the studio.

Killer Is Dead Debut Trailer Oozes With Style and Blood

These days it’s rare to see a trailer for a video game be released without half a dozen teases or as a mere twenty second teaser that shows next to nothing.  But here we are two days removed from when the

Killer Is Dead Receives New Details and First In-Game Screens

New details on the forthcoming hodgepodge of weirdness that Grasshopper Manufacture is developing have finally been released. While Killer Is Dead, the new GhM project, was formally announced last Spring, actual details on the game remained elusive other than a vague summary which revealed the game had sci-fi action origins to enhance the backdrop of a world filled with assassins and weird men that were the size of Godzilla.

Liberation Maiden and Two Other Guild 01 Games Are Coming To NA/EU

A rare occurrence has happened in the video game industry as gamers in North America and Europe are set to receive a Japanese games, or games in this case, that they’ve desired.  As several trademark registrations already hinted at, Level-5 will be bringing three games from the Guild 01 collection to North America and Europe.

Two Games From Guild 01 May Be Bound For A Western Release

Even though the video game industry is now both centered and dominated by the Western market it’s still normal for one or two Japanese exclusives to pop up here and there. Compared to the heyday of the Sega consoles, PS1, or even the PS2 we may not see a plethora of cool Japan only games these days but such a thing does occasionally happen. One game that caught the attention of Western gamers and in turn had them hoping for an international release was Guild 01.  

New Lollipop Chainsaw Gameplay Video Emerges

If you’re as excited for Lollipop Chainsaw as I am you may be happy to see this new gameplay video which shows off a previously unseen stage. Playable at PAX East this past weekend, the stage features leading lady Juliet Starling as she takes on some zombified country bumpkin farmers and in the process decapitates a few heads, basically the good stuff that puts smiles on the faces of people.

Killer Is Dead Concept Art Features Giants, Space Stations, And Cybernetic Arms

For a game in which not a single in-game screenshot or trailer has been released, fans of Grasshopper Manufacture are beyond psyched for Killer Is Dead. The next game from the studio and it’s crazed founder Suda 51, Killer Is Dead surprised most of us earlier this week with the apparent tone it was striving for which seem to combine elements of Killer 7 with No More Heroes, a combination that could end up providing one of the best projects Grasshopper Manufacture has created.
