Resistance: Burning Skies Gets Serious In This New Video

In less than two months we’ll be receiving a brand new entry in the Resistance franchise but instead of appearing on the PS3 or the PSN we’ll receiving such goodness on the PlayStation Vita with Resistance: Burning Skies. I don’t know if the lack of overall excitement for Resistance: Burning Skies is just because some people are burned out on the Resistance franchise or simply don’t know that the game is coming out in May.

Original Pitch Video For Gravity Rush Is Rather Breathtaking

Most of the time when a video game is announced we really don’t learn much about its history at all or what the original vision may have been.  Every now and then we may receive a standard BTS video that shows talking heads discussing the project with a few pieces of early concept art but rarely do we ever hear let alone see what the initial vision or pitch was for a video game.

Mortal Kombat Vita Hands-On [GDC 2012]

There are some games that are timeless no matter how many years go by or even what platform they’re on.  As long as the core essence of the game is capture then it really doesn’t matter if we’re playing it on a different console or even on the go thanks to a portable gaming system.

Sony Offers A Glimpse Into The Future Of AR Gaming [GDC 2012]

Video games have come a long way in the last few years with the graphics and ways we play games being vastly different compared to a mere eight or ten years ago.  At this point it may have seemed like there wasn’t much farther video games could go since at some point all the consoles will be capable of the same graphics with only minimal differences being present.

Kojima Productions' FOX Engine Update Shows How Stealthy An Office Can Be

Development may be deep underway on both Project Ogre and the new FOX Engine, but Kojima Productions decided to give us a brief tease of what gamers can expect from the new-fangled engine that will be powering their games.  We’ve already seen Hideo Kojima flaunt some early FOX Engine screens both showcasing an actual prototype of a game scenario along with giving us a glimpse at how the engine can replicate real objects i.e. actual actors with near flawless quality.

Sony Holding Event To Showcase New Vita Titles

The PlayStation Vita has gotten off to a rather good start in the west so far with a launch that has exceeded expectations.  With hardware and software selling more than expected, the Vita has definitely started things off on the right foot as opposed to the stumbling it has done in Japan so far – which is something that still boggles my mind.  Of course a key way to keep the momentum going for any piece of hardware is to continue pumping out engaging software and thankfully Sony seems to be on top of that situation.

Lumines: Daft Punk Edition, The Lumines Game That Never Was

In case you couldn’t tell by my 10 out of 10 review, I really enjoyed Lumines: Electronic Symphony. As a Lumines fan I was amazed by the new elements the game boasted such as the improved visuals and specialty blocks which only deepened an already deep game.  Of course the buttery beats the game featured also kept my inner British raver heart abuzz with tunes that were catchy, memorable and unique – as per Lumines tradition.

TL;DR - Feb 22 - ME3, Kojima, Game Gear

First of all, a big thank you to everyone who provided feedback on Facebook. You’ll notice I’ve taken your feedback into consideration and revamped the major point of contention with the readers: The ungodly titling convention. Hopefully the new format it a little more palatable.

Today was chalk-full of big announcements what with the release date of Borderlands 2 confirmed via a new trailer, and a teaser site promoting a collaboration between Capcom, Namco/Bandai, and Sega. But there were still a couple of other things I wanted to touch on.

Mass Effect 3 DLC, Nintendo Tease, Street Fighter Announcement - TL;DNR - Feb. 21st

Throughout the day, every day, plenty of stories tend to slip through Shogun’s cracks. That’s mainly because we pride ourselves on being a site that spends a little more time digging and going in-depth with the news items of the day that pique our personal interests… However, I want to try something a little different, a little “new.” Instead of inundating our readers with a plethora of short two-sentence news times through-out the day, I’m going to bundle a couple smaller, but still significant stories into a new segment I’m tentatively calling “TL;DNR” or Too Long; Did Not Read.

Good News Finally Arrives For Retro City Rampage

Today brings us some good news concerning an indie game that has often been talked about but seemingly felt like it may never see the light of day.  The game in question is the love letter to retro gaming that is Retro City Rampage, an open-world action game that basically goes wild in the retro department in such a way that we’ve never seen before.  After been revealed to the public with loads of adulation and praise, the hype was high for Retro City Rampage but the game suffered from one issue: it nearly rivaled Fez in the constantly delayed department.
