21w ago - Square Enix Head of Community Phil Elliott shared a new trailer and gameplay details today for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII fans below.
To quote: Time for a juicy bunch of new details for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, this time focusing on the battle system, plus a new location and costume too.
First up, some screens from Yusnaan, the city of revelry, focusing in on one area in particular - The Slaughterhouse. As the name implies, it's not the most savory of destinations... it's home to nightly battles between mighty combatants in a brutal arena. I'm pretty sure you can figure out who's going to end up getting involved in all that, eh?
Also, time to lift the lid on a nice little sync-up with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII by way of some more costume links - this one allowing you to don the garb of the famous Miqo'te character from the forthcoming PS3 and PS4 MMO, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. You'll be able to equip the Lominsan Cutlass and Escutcheon to give you some awesome rapid attacks and leave enemies dead in your wake.
And last, but by no means least, a bit more detail on the game's battle system. In some battles, you can destroy sections of a foe, and if you succeed in disabling a specific area then the enemy will not...
122w ago - 24 Caret Games Co-founder Matt Gilgenbach has shared some Retro / Grade PAX 2011 details alongside a PSN gameplay trailer today.
To quote: We've been hard at work making a must-have PS3 downloadable game for PSN.
If you're like me and you can barely remember your own name, let me refresh your memory about Retro/Grade.
Retro/Grade is an innovative fusion between a rhythm game and a sidescrolling shooter that has received the IndieCade audience award as well as two Independent Game Festival nominations.
The game begins when you have just singlehandedly fended off an alien invasion, but all the destruction damaged the space/time continuum, which caused the flow of time itself to reverse. What would have been the final boss is actually the beginning of your backwards journey.
Since time is going in reverse, you must undo your actions in the space skirmish to protect the health of the space time continuum. This means you have to dodge enemy projectiles returning to the enemies that fired them while un-firing your projectiles as they return to your ship. It is easier than it sounds since everything is timed to the beat of the original retro game inspired soundtrack.
