Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty shows off new gameplay footage as we eagerly await its impending release

Oddworld Inhabitants Inc. has just released gameplay footage of their upcoming remake of the original Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty (greatest title ever). The footage shows off the title’s dynamic lighting, organic animation, special effects, and 1080p visuals, so take a gander:

Holy crap, that looks incredible! Sounds fantastic, too. Stewart Gilray, CEO at developer Just Add Water, is ecstatic over this astonishing title, saying:

“This really is taking the game above and beyond what we thought would be possible. We’re so excited to finally show what we’ve been working so hard to produce.”

There are some pictures of New ‘n’ Tasty below, but to really get how nice it looks, watch the video.

Since Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning is the creative director behind this and the game promises to expand on the much-loved classic in every way possible, I can’t wait to get my hands on it (that and I never played any Oddworld games).

Judith Trailer Shows Off Enemy Versatility In Abyss Odyssey

We previously wrote about how players can possess and control enemies in Abyss Odyssey. Today Atlus released a trailer titled Know Your Enemy that goes through the moveset and combos for a foe known as Judith.

Abyss Odyssey is an action platformer that treats combat as a key element, much like a fighting game. In a blog post accompanying the trailer, written by co-lead designer Carlos Bordeu, Bordeu talks about how the mechanics will be more comparable to the Super Smash Bros. franchise, rather than games like Street Fighter. Bordeu also notes that repeating the same attack can’t be used to juggle an opponent indefinitely.

“This cannot be accomplished because of a simple rule of the game's combo system: Every time you repeat a same attack within a combo, the attack carries a decreased upwards momentum,” Bordeu said. “In other words: The more you repeat an attack in your combo, the less it pushes upwards, making it more and more difficult to continue the combo. We feel this was an excellent way of balancing juggles and making a system that forces people to use a diversity of attacks creatively in order to get the most impressive combos.”

The trailer is set in the practice room for Abyss Odyssey, which lets you hone your skills against a dummy with any character you’ve unlocked. The blog post also reveals that more videos showing off different characters will be released as the game nears completion.

Abyss Odyssey being developed by ACE Team and is set to release sometime in 2014 on PC through Steam, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

Video Shows Canceled 2010 Crash Team Racing Game In Action

A video along with a handful of details have appeared online showcasing a canceled Crash Team Racing reboot that was in development in 2010.

Crash Bandicoot fan site Crash Mania posted the video online you see below. The game was originally being developed in tandem with another canceled Crash Bandicoot game, Crash Landed. The two were supposed to be follow-ups to 2008's Crash: Mind Over Mutant.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

The build of the game shown in the video features four characters, one race track, and shows off the ability to customize your kart with different animal-themed engines and wheels. The characters also appear to have distinct powers, like the shark's ability to snap people off the track in its jaws and Polar the polar bear's ability to ride a gigantic snow ball on the track. You can find more details on Crash Mania.

The Crash Bandicoot name is still owned by Activision. Activision clarified its ownership last year when rumors surfaced that the franchise may have been sold to Sony. When asked about the future of Crash Bandicoot, a representative from Activision said, "We continue to explore ways in which we could bring the beloved series back to life.”

Our Take
It's hard to say how fun a game is without playing it, but this Crash Team Racing game looks interesting. Seeing the shark attack another racer on the track was a surprise, and the animal-themed wheels and customizations are cool. It's disappointing to hear the game was canceled. There's a big demand for a new Crash entry and I hope Activision recognizes it.

Debut Trailer For Demon Gaze Shows Off Cast Of Characters

Demon Gaze is a new RPG for the Vita that should satisfy anyone with an itch for old school dungeon crawlers. The debut trailer does not reveal much about the gameplay, but judging from the screenshots this looks to be a no-nonsense RPG dungeon crawler of yesteryear, with a whimsical fantasy storyline to go along with it.

The main character is Oz, who awakens to find himself in Misred—a cursed land at the world's western frontier—with a dark shroud covering the memories of his past. The land before him contains many labyrinths that hold both treasure and danger in equal volumes. Oz, as any adventurer with amnesia should, decides to take up arms in order to hunt down artifacts and work together with the new characters he meets. He is a “Demon Gazer,” which is a mystery as of now to what that implies.

The new trailer shows off a wealth of the characters in the game, and also promises character creation, though it is not specified how that will be implemented yet. Demon Gaze will not be out until early 2014, so look for more information as it gets closer to release.
