New Trailer Shows Gameplay From Left 4 Dead’s Japanese Arcade Port

We still don't know exactly how the game plays, or the structure of its cabinet, but a new trailer shows off how the gameplay will look.

Unsurprisingly, it looks a lot like Left 4 Dead. In fact, it looks exactly like Left 4 Dead, but with less accuracy, and what appears to be redisigned protagonists. Around the one-minute mark in the video (after the "Run and Shot" title card) there is a man in a plaid shirt that I don't recognize from Left 4 Dead, or is sequel.

Our Take
I'm curious how the gameplay works, because it doesn't look like an on-rails light-gun shooter – which was my original assumption of the game's mechanics. Left 4 Dead is best enjoyed with people next to you, so I like the idea of it being set up in arcade situation. It seems like it could work very well.

One man developer Fenix Of Green Studios shows off projects at C2E2 2014

 

C2E2

Mixed in among the comic book vendors, there sat Fenix Of Green Studios and its one man dev team. Haven’t heard of Fenix Of Green Studios? Neither had I, but this is what C2E2 is all about, especially for those whom we haven’t seen anything from yet. Show me your (soft)wares!

Ethan Dillon, the one man team himself, was there to take us through his projects that he has been working on for mobile devices. We were greeted with 3 tablets, each showing off retro-looking games that beckon the years of old school Atari and our love of arcade cabinets. He is currently working on three projects at the moment, Purger.exe, Angle Vox, and Pit Black. All three games feature retro graphics, an original soundtrack, and the hard work and sweat of one single guy.

I was only able to play Angle Vox, a game where you control 3 different shapes (square, circle, triangle) in a series of platforming levels. But the twist is that each shape represents a certain play style. Therefore, playing as the square was more of a Super Mario style of play, whereas playing as the circle gives you more of a Sonic the Hedgehog feel to it. The levels are challenging, and the game works well on the mobile touchscreen.

Talking with Ethan, he said a lot of people were comparing his game Pit Black to Limbo, and watching fellow TVGB Editor Andrew Burrage play, it seemed like a reasonable comparison… it was like watching a creepy retro version of Limbo. I would definitely take that comparison as a compliment.

Ethan said he hopes to get the games out soon. Although, according to some recent posts on his twitter account @fenixofgreen, it appears that their first release will be Gigamites. This wasn’t on display at the booth, but this may have been something he was working on knowing it would hit the App Store soon.

Watch Dogs Season Pass Trailer Shows New Playable Character And Campaign

Watch Dogs' planned DLC will offer a hefty update to the game by adding a new playable character with their own campaign, and a number of other additions.

The season pass will be $ 19.99 and offer players a new single-player campaign, and the chance to play as T-Bone, who is a, "brilliant but eccentric hacker," with a southern accent and dreadlocks, and he likes to blow things up, because he's not a hippie.

The season pass also unlcocks new missions and outfits for Aiden, an exclusive untouchables pack which dresses Aiden up like a classic gangster, and the digital trip mode. Digital trip mode appears to give Aiden something similar to Google Glass that changes the way everything looks and puts Aiden on the hunt for cyborgs. Purchasing the season pass also gives owners the chance to start playing the DLC a week before everyone else.

Japanese Trailer Shows Characters And Court Room For Upcoming Early History Phoenix Wright

The next Phoenix Wright is going back in time, taking place in Japan's Meiji era, and a new Japanese trailer shows what the game will look like.

A few details about the game were revealed last week, which you can read more about here. The game takes place some time between the years 1868 to 1912 and casts players in the role of one of Phoenix Wright's ancestors, Ryuunosuke Naruhodo. It was also revealed Series creator Shu Takumi is back on board to fully direct after serving more of a consulting role on Dual Destinies.

The trailer below is in Japanese, so it's difficult to glean many details without knowing the language. The game does not have a confirmed release for North America, or an English title as it is currently called Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Ryuunosuke
Naruhodou no Bouken.

Our Take
I'm excited to see the series take this radical historical turn. Phoenix Wright has never offered a particularly realistic representation of the study of law, but there is some truth in its portrayal, and I am interested in seeing how law works in Japan's history. It will be a slightly educational experience.

Chris Roberts Shows Star Citizen’s Dogfighting In Extensive Demo

Chris Roberts gave Star Citizen backers an extensive, early look at the game's dogfighting module, which should be coming within the next month. The event took place last night, on the eve of PAX East, but you can see the hour-long presentation now.

The clip below is Roberts' presentation in its entirety. It shows the game's impressive attention to detail, which begins in the virtual hanger and the animated sequence of entering a ship. Even the simple act of getting seated and putting on a helmet has a little extra pizzazz (one of the benefits of having such a large dev team). Once the bay's shutters are opened, you can see the ship-to-ship battles.

According to the in-game fiction, this dogfighting module is actually a simulation itself, called Arena Commander. Watch the video below to see it in action and to learn much more about the module. The top video is Roberts' entire gameplay presentation. The bottom video is a compilation of all of the gameplay showing during it.

Our Take
The crowd backed the game, so they're clearly invested in Star Citizen in several ways. Still, it's hard not to share their vocal enthusiasm when the player character gets settled into the detailed cockpit for the first time or locks onto an enemy target. The game looks fantastic, and it has to be satisfying for Roberts to be able to deliver some of the things he was aiming for with his Wing Commander series.

You'll see assorted weapons and combat stances in the video, as well as a little bit of stealth.
