  • El Shaddai Director Announces New RPG The Lost Child For PS4 and PS Vita
    Bald Bouncer
    Takeyasu Sawaki, the director and character designer of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, has announced his new game- The Lost Child, a new command based turn based RPG coming for the PS4 and PS Vita this Summer in Japan.


    The Lost Child will be set in the same mythology as El Shaddai, and in fact its story will be connected to it. There will also be monster collecting elements in the game, ala Pokemon, Digimon, Yokai Watch, Shin Megami Tensei, Dragon Quest, and Persona,...

    Bald Bouncer
    Crash Bandicoot 4 isn’t happening right now, but we are getting a consolidated collection of the PlayStation trilogy, remastered. The remasters look lovingly, gorgeously redone for the modern market, and the more we see of them, the more excited we get.


    Take, for instance, this new trailer for the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy. This trailer focuses on the villains of the trilogy, showing these quirky beasts returned. People and players who grew up playing Crash should surely...

  • Star Ocean 3: Till The End of Time Is The Newest PS2 Classic Launching On PS4 May 23
    Bald Bouncer
    Star Ocean may kind of suck now – Star Ocean 4 was pretty bad, and last year’s Star Ocean 5 was arguably even worse – but if you want to relive the glory days of the franchise, you can soon. At least, if you have a PS4. Square Enix has confirmed that Star Ocean 3: Till The End of Time will be launching on the PS4 via PS2 Classics on May 23 in the west.


    That’s the good news- here comes the bad news. It’s $20.99, which is an obscene price for such an old game, and ensures that...

  • Dynasty Warriors 9 Goes Open World, New Details Revealed
    Bald Bouncer
    Famitsu (via Gematsu) has a bunch of new information about Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors 9, the cult favourite crowd-brawling action title. A number of changes are inbound including an open world setting which the player will traverse via horseback (fast travel is still a thing so don’t worry).


    Capturing castles is possible in the open world and you can now attack them from behind or even the high ground. Battles will now take place at different points on a map with main missions...

  • Nier Automata – PS4 Pro vs PS4 Head To Head Graphics Comparison

    Nier Automata marks a return to form for PlatinumGames. After a series of disappointing games, the Japan based developer has finally found its touch. Nier Automata is an interesting title to analyze because at first glance it doesn’t seem to employ intensive graphical techniques. This is true to an extent but it makes up for it by depending on a unique but dull brownish/yellowish color palette and fantastic art style. There is a certain dark feel to the game which goes perfectly well with the post apocalyptic setting.

    This is not to say that the game doesn’t rely on other colors. Later in the game you will come across colorful bosses and an amusement park. However, the highlight of Nier Automata’s engine is its ability to switch between different genres on the fly. The game often switches from being a side-scroller to a top down shooter, from the usual third perspective to a 3D plane shooter. The camera work is brilliantly implemented as the transition from one style to another is extremely smooth.

    Automata’s lighting work is also superb in some places along with fantastic alpha and volumetric effects. The particle effects that are emitted whenever the player strikes the enemy to the various machines exploding, all of it looks pretty damn good. Add to that the amazing animation system (which isn’t a surprise considering this is coming from the developers of Metal Gear Rising Revengenace and Bayonetta) and you have what is perhaps one of the best action games on the PS4.

    On the PS4, the game renders at 900p while the Pro manages to deliver a full 1080p resolution. Both consoles target a 60 frames per second cap which is a must given the game-style PlatinumGames are targeting for. However performance seems to be largely a mix bag on both versions. We witnessed various frame rate issues on both versions and these drops affect the combat. This is not to say that they happen every single time and for the most part we do get a stable performance but given that Automata is a game that relies so much on a fast controller input, a major drop could impact gameplay experience. We are hopeful that these performance issues will be fixed in a future patch but there is no official word on that yet. Other than the higher rendering resolution, the PS4 Pro version also benefits from better quality motion blur, anisotropic filtering and slightly better looking shadows.

    Despite its performance issues, Nier Automata is an exceptionally good game. Its clever mix of several genres, deep RPG system, awesome boss battles and PlatinumGames’ crazy mix of over the top and action based combat make it one of the best action games on the PS4.
