NYCC 2014: PlayStation’s first TV show Powers gets a trailer

Earlier this year Sony TV had announced that they were adapting the comic book Powers into a TV show exclusively for PlayStation. Today you can have your first look at the fruits of their labor with the release of their first trailer. In addition to the trailer release, the show had a panel yesterday at New York Comic-Con. My favorite bit of information from the panel was that just like Netflix and HBO shows, Powers will contain adult themes and will have a hard R rating feel to it.

Powers is a comic book series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Oeming that centers around a task unit that is in charge of keeping an eye on the people that have special abilities. Powers is set for release on PlayStation platforms in December. The first episode will be free for anyone on a PlayStation device, while the season will be free for any PlayStation Plus subscriber.

Ace Attorney Prequel gets new trailer at Tokyo Game Show

Capcom have revealed a brand new trailer for the upcoming Ace Attorney prequel, The Great Ace Attorney at the Tokyo Game Show.

Set during the Meiji era of Japan, attorney-in-training Ryunosuke Naurhodou, ancestor of Phoenix Wright, travels to England along with his assistant, Susato Mikotoba, where he meets Sherlock Holmes and his partner, the young genius, Iris Watson.

The trailer shows off one of the new features of the game: deductive reasoning, which sees Holmes use his infamous detective skills to analyse Susato, with Ryunosuke butting in to bring in his own deductions.

The game will be out in Japan in early 2015. Still no word on a Western release but given the series’ popularity over here and the game prominently taking place in England, we should hopefully hear something about it next year.

The Evil Within Tokyo Game Show 2014 trailer

Bethesda released a new trailer for their upcoming horror IP The Evil Wtihin at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The trailer should manage to get you terrified for the late nights you will be up not being able to sleep because you decided it was a better idea to play the game in the dark with the sound turned up. In fact, I am sure the game’s director, the horror man himself, Shinji Mikami, already has that in mind.

The Evil Within is due for release on October 23rd for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

New Comparison Screens Show Improved Graphics In Resident Evil Remake


Capcom is working on a remastered version of Resident Evil Remake, a new version of the classic survival horror game that released on GameCube in 2002.

That GameCube title was eventually ported to Wii, but since the system couldn't output true HD, it wasn't markedly better looking. Now, a fully HD remaster of Resident Evil is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Today, Capcom released some new images of the game, including three new shots that had been released in Japan. If you go to Capcom Unity, there are some great interactive screenshots that allow you to compare the Wii version with the 360/PS3 version by moving a slider across the screen to transition between the two. It's pretty impressive. These are shots of the Xbox 360/PS3 version, so it's conceivable that the Xbox One/PS4 version could look better still. Check out some comparison shots below, and look for the three new screens in the image gallery.
