Fenix Fire Announces Source on PS4: Evolving The Adventure

50°
10w ago - Fenix Fire CEO Brian McRae announced Source on PS4 today while discussing the evolution of the adventure with PlayStation 4 fans below.

To quote: When we began developing Source, we set out to create something completely new and unique, yet deeply versed in the classic Metroidvania adventure game style. To us, a Metroidvania is a special kind of adventure game that has a few main components that need to be just right.

First off, there needs to be an expansive, mysterious world to explore. Second, there should be permanent upgrades that are vital to your character's advancement and survival.

Lastly, a rich, visual story should unfold simply by playing the game itself. In just a few months of development time we've managed to uncover how we will attempt these familiar traits of the genre, and maybe even evolve them a bit further with Source.

The world of Source, even in its earliest versions, has always been an alternate dimension full of life, energy, and bio luminescence. Early on we looked at 80′s computer graphic movies like Tron, deep sea marine life, and fine surreal art for influence.

The reason for this eclectic mix of inspiration was to find the middle ground between the familiar and the unknown in order to help drive the exploratory nature of...
 

Video: Zachtronics Announces Ironclad Tactics is Coming to PS4

10w ago - Zachtronics Creative Director Zach Barth announced today that Ironclad Tactics is coming to PlayStation 4 with a PS4 video below.

To quote: One of the problems with making a game about the American Civil War is that it's fairly boring, at least compared to other video game themes. However, I believe that we have solved that problem, through the addition of massive, steam-powered automatons designed for a single purpose: WAR!

Ironclad Tactics is a fast-paced, card-based tactics game set in the American Civil War... with robots! Although it's reminiscent of the tactics games and collectible card games that we're all familiar with, we've done a few things that make the game stand out:

•When it comes to games, I am not a patient person. One of my biggest frustrations with card and tactics games is waiting for my opponent to take their turn, especially when they're an AI. In Ironclad Tactics, this is not a problem, as the entire game is streamlined for 10-second, fixed-length turns taken by all players simultaneously, blending the best of turn-based and real-time gameplay.

• You can call me old fashioned, but one thing I don't understand are digital card games that require you to purchase individual cards. They're just ones and zeroes! They don't exist! In Ironclad...

10w ago - Namco Bandai Games Public Relations Specialist Nick O'Leary announced that JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle is out today on PS3!

To quote: Hey gang. Everyone over here at Bandai Namco is very excited to release JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle out to our fans today on PS3!

The game, in case you're not aware, is a one-on-one fighting game that brings together more than 30 characters from across the entire JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series.

True to the name of the series, these characters are bizarre with a capital "B." Even if you're not familiar with the source material, there's enough over-the-top personality with each fighter that you'll have no problem picking a favorite.

All of that flourish comes courtesy of developer CyberConnect2. Their commitment to creating the greatest looking and playing anime and manga-based games is second to none.

It's easily seen in their Ultimate Ninja series for the Naruto franchise, and it's on full display again here for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

So sit back, relax, and take in all that JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle has in store.
