    Bald Bouncer
    Vicarious Visions’ Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will have a number of Trophies when it releases but there will be a few more to come. A Trophy list revealed by Exophase indicates two extra Trophies that are part of something called the Lost Treasures DLC.


    The Silver Trophy is The Crown Jewel where you must “seek and destroy” to obtain it. An Ancient Antiquity is the Gold Trophy and the description is “Do hard time”. What those could mean remains to be seen and neither...

  • Sony On Not Allowing Cross Platform Play
    Bald Bouncer
    Sony’s backwards policies when it comes to cross platform play have been revealed over this week, as first Minecraft, and then Rocket League – and both substantially major games- have been announced to be getting full cross platform play between their PC, Xbox, and Switch versions, but the PS4 being excluded.


    This happens because Sony won’t allow for cross platform play whatsoever, despite originally championing it, when it was clear Microsoft would never allow for it. In an...

  • You Can Play As Coco Through All Of Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
    Bald Bouncer
    Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy looks to be a loving remaster of the original trilogy of the PlayStation platformers, modernizing them for a new age of gamers who never played them, and for those who did and yearn to return to the games again. But it looks like developers Vicarious Vision and publisher Activision have managed to pack in some surprises for us still.


    For instance, they have confirmed that you will be able to play through the entire trilogy, all three games, as Coco,...

  • Shenmue 3 Delayed to Second Half of 2018
    Bald Bouncer
    If it weren’t bad enough that Ys Net’s Shenmue 3 would be missing E3 2017, creator Yu Suzuki announced in a new video message that the game has been delayed to the second half of 2018. The long-awaited sequel was originally meant to release by December 2017. At least, that was the delivered date on its Kickstarter campaign.


    Suzuki said in the video that, “We unfortunately must delay its release. By utilizing new technologies we have been able to discover new possibilities and...

  • Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Releases On August 8
    Bald Bouncer
    It’s been a long time coming, but it’s almost here - Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, the new action title from developers Ninja Theory, will be releasing this year, on August 8, for PC and PS4. The game, which was originally announced at Gamescom 2014, has been a very long wait- but at last, players will be able to play it.


    The game’s story takes from Celtic and Norse mythologies, but also adds a psychological story into the mix. It will be tackling some sensitive psychological...

  • Analyst Skeptical Of 2018 PS5 Release Claims
    Bald Bouncer
    We’ve heard some rumors claim that a PS5 is coming next year- the claim was made by an analyst, the very same who also successfully predicted the PS4 Slim’s debut alongside the PS4 Pro last year, which is why his word has been given any credence. But… doesn’t it make very little sense for Sony to launch a PS5 next year, two years after the PS4 Pro, five years after the PS4, and when the PS4 is doing so well for itself, too?


    According to Michael Goodman, who is the director of...

  • Street Fighter 5 Is Hitting Its Stride, Says Capcom

    Street Fighter 5 was such a missed opportunity. Capcom was following the trailblazing Street Fighter 4, which is credited with single handedly having revived the fighting game genre, and, owing to an exclusivity arrangement with Sony, had all eyes on them thanks to an extensive marketing campaign. But the game, while mechanically sublime, launched with a paucity of content and all manner of issues- the ensuing word of mouth was enough to scare most people away, and the game has shambled on ever since.

    However, Capcom’s diligent work in supporting the game over the last year seems to be bearing some fruit. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Stuart Turner, Capcom Europe’s newly appointed COO, discussed Street Fighter 5‘s launch and subsequent fortunes, noting that the game was in a ‘stronger place’ now.

    “Street Fighter 5 is hitting its stride, there are seasons of content to come and we still have support plans for the title for many more years,” he said. “Our Capcom Pro Tour is going into even more countries than ever before while local tournaments are being set up in places such as India in 2017. After a difficult start Street Fighter 5 in a very good place now.”

    He also noted that the service model in itself wasn’t flawed, especially for a game like Street Fighter 5– “I still believe the service game model is absolutely the thing for Street Fighter. It was always going to be a huge challenge to take a well loved brand from a traditional boxed product to a service game business model. The way a game like that is produced, developed, tested and marketed are all hugely different to a traditional boxed game. I don’t think it would be wrong to say that we didn’t get much right with Street Fighter 5 at launch, we’ve learnt and put things in place that will avoid such issues ever arising in the future. Getting an offering that’s right for consumers first should be always be our priority.”

    Of course, one can argue that something as basic as this is something Capcom should have known to begin with, but they’ve done good work on the game since its launch, and they’re clearly committed to continuing to improve it, so I’ll cut them some slack.
