E3 2013: The Order: 1886 Reveal Trailer

The-Order-1886-01 The folks over at Ready At Dawn studios and Sony Santay Monica is finally working on a new IP.

If you don't know who Ready At Dawn are, they were the studio behind the Wii port of Okami and the two God of War games on the PSP and SCE (Sony Computer Entertainment) Santa Monica handled the console entries for God of War. Now they're working on a new IP called The Order: 1886 which looks to be what I can describe as a steampunk old style London mixed with some Van Helsing and Japanese anime guns.

The-Order-1886-02The trailer revealed did not show a shred of gameplay but I am guessing and hoping that this is a Third-Person shooter that has an emphasis on action and less cover. While the trailer does not show actual gameplay, the cinematics were said to done using in-game graphics rendered in real time. Not much else is known about the game but since it's the season for video game news, I'm sure we'll get an update soon.

The Order: 1886 will be a PS4 exclusive. Hopefully this will be one of those games that helps carry the console.

E3 2013: Nintendo 3DS Developer Direct - Super Smash Bros.

nintendo_developer_direct_smash_brosThe game director for the Super Smash Bros. series, Masahiro Sakurai, gives us a more in-depth look at the new upcoming Super Smash Bros. Game for the 3DS and Wii U. We get a better a better look at both versions of the game as well as the changes in the new game both visually and gameplay wise. Some older characters have updated looks and new moves to set this game appart from previous entries.

Sakurai also talks a bit about some of the new characters such as The Villager, Mega Man and the Wii Fit Trainer.

A bit of good news from this is the confirmation that both the 3DS and Wii U will have the same roster of characters but will have a few unique stages depending on which version you get. Like the 3DS will have more handheld themed stages and the Wii U will have more home console theme stages.

E3 2013: Rain Trailer

rain_ps3_01Shown during the Sony press conference, Rain is about an invisible world revealed the falling rain. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment, you follow the story of a young boy and girl as they search for answers and try to escape the evil that is also hidden in the rain. rain_ps3_02I know what you're all thinking. This looks so much like Ico which is a good thing. From the camera angles, the young boy and girl, the silent mystery and what looks to be a darker theme than most games makes me very excited for this.

The game is set to launch in fall of 2013 on both the PS3 and PSVita.

E3 2013: WiiFit Lady Joins Super Smash Bros.

wiifit_lady_smash_bros If you thought the inclusion of Mega Man in the next Super Smash Bros. was crazy. Wait till you see this one.

Mega Man being in the new Super Smash Bros. is super awesome but if you've followed SSB news from even back in the day, you'd know that Mega Man could have potentially made it in Super Smash Bros. Meleealong with Snake and Sonic. Snake and Sonic didn't make it due to time constraints but Mega Man had a different reason. Inafune said that he would have been glad to include Mega Man in Melee but only if Nintendo approached Capcom about it. In Snake and Sonic's case it was the opposite as Kojima was the one who approached Nintendo and SEGA was down for putting Sonic in there. In short seeing Mega Man in the new Smash Bros. is awesome but is something that we've been expecting for a long time now.

On to the real reason for this post. Nintendo is getting a bit crazy now with their games which I like and this new character for Smash Bros. is super crazy. It's the WiiFit lady. Yeah, no words can express whatever it is that we're all feeling right now.

E3 2013: The Walking Dead: 400 Days Trailer

the-walking-dead-400-days-01Let's be clear. This is NOT The Walking Dead: The Video Game Season 2. This is sort of an expansion. A side story, if you will. Focusing on 5 new characters with their own stories in one episode.

Choices you've made in Season 1 will carry over to The Walking Dead: 400 Days and the choices in that will show it's impact in season 2.

the-walking-dead-400-days-02The new episode is set to launch in next month for $5 and PC, Mac, XBLA, PSN and what caught me by surprisingle, iOS. The PSVita version will come out in August of this year and it will be bundled with the entire first season.

Some of you maybe not be pleased that this isn't season 2 but hey, I'm just glad that we're getting more Telltale Walking Dead action this early. And don't worry, season 2 is due out later this fall.
