GI Show 239: Battlefield: Hardline, Nintendo News, Resident Evil Revelations 2

This week, we have a blockbuster shooter, the final entry in RE Revelations 2, and some intriguing announcements from Nintendo.

First up, host Matt Helgeson is joined by Jeff Marchiafava and Andy Reiner to talk about Battlefield: Hardline. Our review isn't up yet (due to the fact that Jeff is still testing multiplayer) but we have a lot of impressions about the single-player campaign he completed, and the excellent online play.

In the second segment, Kyle Hilliard and Jeff Cork stop by to talk about Nintendo's venture into the world of mobile gaming, and it's mysterious new game system.

Finally, Kim Wallace and Tim Turi look back on the four episodes of Resident Evil Revelations 2, now that the episodic series is wrapped up. They come away some mixed, but mostly positive, feelings about the experience.

Note: this episode features selections from Ori and the Blind Forest soundtrack.

Ninja Theory News Coming On Monday

Ninja Theory, the studio behind Heavenly Sword, the Devil May Cry reboot, and the upcoming Hellblade, is planning to share some info on a different project early next week.

The studio posted an update on Twitter teasing new details are on the way:

Right now, Ninja Theory's only officially announced upcoming game is Hellblade, so this could be related to a brand new title. On the other hand, it could conceivably be tied to ongoing support for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, too.

For the moment, all we can do is hope and speculate. Until Monday, at least.

[Source: Twitter]


Our Take
I've enjoyed most of Ninja Theory's work. However, Before you get your hopes too high for a DMC-caliber announcement, you might want to check your expectations. Ninja Theory has done similar teases before, but with underwhelming results. But, hey – if it is a new DMC, I'll be the first one jumping for joy.
