Quantum Conundrum and Papo & Yo Developers Join Ouya With New Software

The PlayStation 4 may have our undivided attention right now, but we shouldn’t forget or entirely write off the Ouya.  Likely not destined to match the instant appeal that Sony has gathered for their new console, the Ouya is nonetheless gathering steam based on these latest announcements.

Gran Turismo 6 May Not Appear On PlayStation 4 [Rumor]

Something could be amiss in the world of Gran Turismo which may not please the many members of the racing elite.  After the stumbling that Gran Turismo 5 went through in part to a shoddy online infrastructure and gamers being less than happy about certain elements, the next installment in Polyphony Digital’s ode to racing may arrive without the next-gen sheen that we all expected it would.

New PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC Includes A Space Engineer and A God

Despite SuperBot Entertainment and Sony parting ways out of nowhere, the DLC plans for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale aren’t being given the boot – at least for now.  After the arrival of the Fury Level and the arrival of Kat (Gravity Rush) and Emmett (Starhawk) as playable characters, PS All-Stars is set to receive yet another new level mash-up and two more characters.

Capcom Unveils New Trailer For Remember Me + Release Date

If exploring a futuristic version of Paris is something you’ve keen to do as you rebuild the memories of your character, you may be happy with this latest announcement for Remember Me.  The new IP Capcom is pushing, which surprisingly isn’t developed by any of their internal studios, Remember Me caught the attention of gamers when it was revealed at Gamescom last year – not just because it shares the same title as a sappy Robert Pattison romantic drama but because it looks intriguing all around.

Assassin's Creed IV Details Leaked, Set To Include Assassin Pirates

Now on a yearly schedule like that of the Madden and Call of Duty series, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Ubisoft has a new Assassin’s Creed in the works.  The third entry, at least numbered entry, in the series had gamers in two distinct camps when it was released last year, yet here we are on the verge of yet another installment being prepped which appears to be more of the same.

Activision Interested In TNA Wrestling Game [Rumor]

The WWE may finally have some competition when it comes to the world of video games. While the WWE recently wrapped up a contract which will see all future games representing the brand published by Take Two Interactive, one of the last competitors in the wrestling world may be gearing up for a video game comeback.

PlayStation 4 - The Future Revealed [Wrap-up]

Over the last 20 days the internet has been bursting at the seam with speculation surrounding the teaser trailer of Sony’s “See the Future” ad campaign. While we pretty much all knew it was coming… Sony did a half-decent job this time around of keeping us all in the dark until the official reveal during a press conference (which was live-streamed online) to detail their plans for the next generation of console game entertainment.

Take Two and WWE Finalize Publishing Deal, New Talent To Oversee Future WWE Games

Take Two and the WWE have officially finalized their deal which will see all future WWE games published under the 2K Sports banner for the next five years.  As reported last week, the deal reached between Take Two and the WWE will not only see core developers from THQ return to the project, but the team at Yuke’s as well.  Such news led wrestling fans into a tale-spin of depression that would only be rivaled by John Cena being the WWE champ again for thr

Square Enix Unveils The Ghostly Detective Drama That Is Murdered: Soul Suspect

Today may officially mark the start of the next-generation of consoles, but that isn’t stopping Square Enix from announcing a major property destined for the current gen. After a bit of teasing through some clever viral marketing sites, Square Enix has officially unveiled the supernatural thriller that is Murdered: Soul Suspect.

Debut Trailer For Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2

At long last we have our first look at Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 and as expected the sophomore season of the series looks incredibly badass. With only a scant few behind-the-scenes images wetting our appetites over the past two months, we have a full-on trailer that not only shows us each combatant within the new season, but what sort of bloody action they’ll participate in as well.

Bungie Shows Us Their Destiny

After opting to forgo their almost pre-determined path of being the latest development studio to enter the yearly installment route, Bungie has finally unveiled their new project.  Over three years in the making, Destiny is the latest FPS from the makers of Halo and it could go on to become the next big thing in the world of gaming. Either that or it’ll be this generation’s equivalent to Daikatana.

Tactical FPS Takedown Gains Publisher and Console Release

The Kickstarter funded FPS game Takedown has now officially found a home.  After making its funding goal in a brilliant last minute hurrah, the development team at Serellan LLC continued their work on the project but now they have the backing of a rather substantial publishing partner.

Take Two Officially Acquires WWE Game License, Yuke's Returning To Develop Titles

Wrestling fans will no doubt be in a bad mood considering the latest news to happen in the world of the WWE. The newfound depression amongst wrasslin fans isn’t because CM Punk is no longer the champ, but instead pertains to the world of WWE video games.  Previously it appeared as if a new era of wrestling games was set to begin due to the closure of THQ, but now it appears that we could simply be in store for more of the same – a predicament that plagues the wrestling industry itself.

Avalanche Studios Teases First In-Game Image Of Mad Max Video Game [Rumor]

This year is poised to deliver some amazing debuts through the arrival of the next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft. We may be privy to getting a small taste of what’s to come through Sony’s press conference next week, which will likely unveil the new PlayStation, but developers are finally beginning to drop some megabomb teases on us.

Chimpact [PlayStation Mobile Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Providing an almost puzzle like take on the platforming genre, Chimpact is a fairly straightforward and pleasant PlayStation Mobile game that thankfully doesn’t falter with its focus on touch controls. The amount of content within the game somewhat bleeds together as things are similar, despite the addition of secondary content which has only minimal effects on the experience, but as a simple PSM game Chimpact is worth your time if you just want to have an easy going gaming experience.

The Pros: 

+ Graphics are lush in their crispness and how fluid everything is.
+ Levels have some nice variety to them along with a steadying rise in difficulty.
+ Price point is good for what the game offers.

The Cons: 

- Gameplay could’ve used some more interaction within the environment to help deepen things.
- Touch controls are slightly sensitive and it doesn’t help that the game lacks a tutorial.
- The chimps have no character to them that makes them appealing other than their cute facade.

Partaking in a bit of light-hearted gaming is always good for the soul since endlessly playing action games or trying to do a perfect lap on a particular course can ultimately eat away at our gaming souls. So what better way to let loose and relax a bit than with a new PlayStation Mobile game in which we send a cute chimp flying. No, Super Monkey Ball has not gone the PSM route as a completely original game has arrived in the form of Chimpact.

New Batman Arkham Game Scheduled For 2013, Potential Developer Swtich Inbound [Rumor]

This may be a case of shocking and not so shocking news, but the Batman Arkham series is poised for a return once again.  After the release of Batman: Arkham City in 2011, gamers eagerly anticipated the continuation of the series, even given the shocking ending, and now they’ll receive their wish but there could be a catch to it.

Concept Art For The Walking Dead and Superman Pitches From Housemarque

If you’re fond of keeping up to date on games that were seemingly never meant to be (they were cancelled), then you may be interested to learn what the team at Housemarque was working on.  Best known for their PSN games such as Dead Nation and Super Stardust HD, Housemarque apparently was branching out into new territory: the ever complex sub-genre of licensed video games.

Square Enix Files Legacy of Kain Related Domain

Our long awaited return to Nosgoth could finally become a reality based on a recent development. After being whispered for the past two years, Square Enix may have finally settled on a new installment in the Legacy of Kain/Soul Reaver series based on a domain name that was filed.

Pacific Rim To Receive Video Game Treatment

Deep inside us I think we all desire to see a good game based upon a film like Man of Steel or Iron Man 3, and thankfully one upcoming film which has the geek world buzzing is actually receiving the video game treatment.

If you saw the Pacific Rim trailer and thought “wow, that would be a kick-ass video game” then your wish has been granted as such a thing is in the works.  Announced today by Legendary Pictures, Pacific Rim will be adapted into a series of video games for both the consoles and PC. 

LittleBigPlanet 3 Reportedly In Development With New Studio [Rumor]

The world of LittleBigPlanet may continue from an unlikely source based on a new rumor.  While LBP creator Media Molecule may have parted ways with the world of imagination in favor of new IPs such as Tearaway, Sony is nonetheless focused on keeping things going - even if it means changing developers.
