Third Star Ocean: Integrity And Faithlessness Live Stream Happens Tuesday, May 24

Square Enix is gearing up for its third Star Ocean Star Log live stream tomorrow. As part of the event, we’ll be getting a gameplay trailer and a deeper look at a couple of the characters.

Anne and Emerson, two of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness’ characters will be more fully explored during the event. We’ll also get a better look at the Kingdom of Trei’kur.

You can tune in tomorrow at 7 p.m. Eastern / 4 p.m. Pacific on Square Enix’s Twitch channel. The game is due out on June 28 for PlayStation 4.

 

Our Take
Star Ocean isn’t Square Enix’s highest profile release of the year, but seeing the publisher adopt a more open approach to is fantastic. While this is still the publisher controlling the message, it’s at least doing it in a way that offers viewers substance instead of only marketing-driven trailers.

Our Take
I definitely want to play this on Vita. I will happily accept some Trophies for revisiting this game. I'm curious to see if the visuals or performance have changed dramatically from the original Super Nintendo version.

Sword Coast Legends Doesn’t Come Out Until Tuesday, But You Can Play Right Now If You Pre-Order

Sword Coast Legends, the Dungeons & Dragons romp featuring dungeon building and Dungeon Mastering, doesn't launch until October 20, but if you pre-order the game on Steam you can play immediately via Head Start Access.

While the game features a full campaign and everything, much of the intrigue surrounding the title comes from designing and delving into player-created dungeons.

We've taken a few looks at the game as it's moved closer to completion, and a full review is on the way.

Our Take
What we've played has been interesting, and I'm looking forward to checking out the full game.

For You It Is M. Bison Reveal Day For Street Fighter V, But For Him It Is Tuesday

While it won’t come as a huge surprise that Street Fighter V’s big bad boss M. Bison is returning, he’s definitely got a few new tricks up his sleeve. Based on gameplay footage, he’s a teleporting beast that doesn’t mind putting his boot on opponents’ heads.

A gameplay reveal trailer on IGN shows M. Bison teleporting through projectiles, dropping in from above, and grappling with some added juice from his “psycho power.” Bison also seems to be able to nullify incoming projectiles and fire off some of his own.

You can check out the full trailer on IGN, who seems to have an exclusive for now. Street Fighter V is coming to PlayStation 4 and PC.

Our Take
If anything, this hopefully points to bigger reveals at E3. Street Fighter IV was instrumental in revitalizing the fighting genre, and that’s a big legacy to extend. So far, the game looks great, but we’re looking forward to actually getting hands-on time.
