It can be hard for new players to break into the Street Fighter franchise nowadays… especially when playing online against dedicated fighting game fanatics. But Capcom wants to change this perception with Street Fighter V and have announced plans to add a Tutorial Mode to the game. The first three minutes of the Tutorial Mode have been embedded above, giving players their first look at a sparring session between Ryu and Ken. The still panels delve into the pair’s backstory, and the Capcom-Unity blog has promised this is “just a sample of things to come.”
Street Fighter V will be available for the PC and PS4 on February 16.
Black Friday is coming, is your wish list (and your wallet) ready? Here’s what you can expect to find at one retailer on November 27th…
As the only nationwide retailer that deals exclusively in video games, GameStop is always expected to host a good Black Friday sale. Thankfully, they’ve come through with discounts on dozens of games (both new and used), as well as a number of great system bundles too. And Amiibo Hunters take note, GameStop has also promised that a variety of rare Amiibo figures (such as Ike) will be in stock on Black Friday.
GameStop will open their doors for Black Friday shopping on November 27 at 5:00 PM. All the deals will also be available at GameStop.com if you’re the antisocial type. You can view their full ad at BlackFriday.com or check out all the game deals after the break. (more…)
I hope you’re all caught up with Telltale’s Game of Thrones adaptation, as the final episode, The Ice Dragon, is now available to download on the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and mobile devices. But if you’re still behind (and you’re not afraid of spoilers), be sure to check out the “Recap Trailer” embedded above. It’ll helpfully provide an overview of the many choices players have had to make over the first five episodes, while also setting up the grand finale:
Your story is about to come to an epic conclusion. With House Whitehill tightening its grip on Ironrath at the behest of Ramsay Bolton, the remaining Forresters must give their all to save the family, whether through diplomacy, subterfuge, or violent force. In the frozen wilds beyond The Wall, Gared learns the secrets of the mysterious North Grove, and Mira discovers that political games in a King’s Landing controlled by Cersei Lannister often involve the highest stakes of all.
What is the fate of House Forrester? When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. Your choices, your story: you decide.
Game of Thrones: The Complete Season is also available to purchase from retail outlets beginning today for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
NIS America has announced that Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, which was originally released for the PS2 in 2003, will finally make its way to the PC (via Steam) in February 2016.
Now known as Disgaea PC, the first game in the strategy RPG series will receive a complete makeover for its PC debut. NIS America will add in the bonus content created for the Afternoon of Darkness DS/PSP port, an updated UI, new textures, and keyboard/mouse support. Finally, Steam features such as Achievements, Cloud Saves, Badges, and Trading Cards will all be included in Disgaea PC.
A price for Disgaea PC has yet to be announced.
“Do or do not. There is no try.”
After an absence from gaming for more than a decade, it’s time for the return of the Star Wars: Battlefront franchise on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Did DICE recapture the old magic that made the series a fan favorite? We won’t know for sure until Tuesday, but I do know that the Vader-emblazoned PS4 500GB + Star Wars: Battlefront Limited Edition Bundle is a beautiful piece of hardware. A regular PS4 500GB + Star Wars: Battlefront Bundle will also be released this week.
Also available this week is a pair of Nintendo exclusives on Friday. Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon for the 3DS is the latest dungeon-crawling roguelike starring those lovable Pokemon. Meanwhile, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash serves up another Mario-filled tennis tournament on the Wii U in place of the delayed Star Fox Zero.
Finally this week, we’ve got plenty of familiar games in new places…
- Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate makes its PC debut as the Assassins and Templars take their eternal struggle to Victorian England.
- The Borderlands Triple Pack (PS3, Xbox 360) puts all three games (and all their downloadable content) into a single package for the first time.
- The Crew: Wild Run Edition (PS4, Xbox One) bundles together Ubisoft’s online racer with its Wild Run expansion.
- Deadpool breaks the fourth wall again in this PS4/Xbox One remake of his PS3/Xbox 360 game.
- Telltale compiles all six episodes of their Game of Thrones adaptation onto a single disc for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
A complete list of this week’s new release can be found after the break. (more…)
Friday the 13th: The Game is fully funded on Kickstarter
Happy Friday the 13th everyone! I hope you managed to avoid any black cat that might’ve cross your path or any ladder that you might’ve walked under. And definitely steer clear of Jason Voorhees, because this is his day… in more ways than one.
Just a few hours remain in the Kickstarter campaign for Gun Media’s Friday the 13th: The Video Game, but they’ve chopped through their initial goal of $700,000 and are tearing past Stretch Goals as we speak. Detailed in the campaign’s latest update, these Stretch Goals include bonus kills for Jason, new skins for the Counselors, a number of new Maps (including Manhattan), and an Offline Mode.
Congratulations to Gun Media and everyone else involved in the creation of Friday the 13th: The Video Game (including special effects wizard Tom Savini, actor Kane “Jason” Hodder, and composer Harry Manfredini). If all goes according to plan, Friday the 13th: The Video Game will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in October 2016.
Good day Warp Zoned readers young and old, and welcome to another re-launch of our Kickstart This! feature, where we direct your bedazzled eyes to our top picks currently duking it out on the crowdfunding platform for cash, credit, and respect.
“But didn’t you relaunch a short while ago?” I hear you cry. And yes, yes we did, but the weekly format felt forced and oversaturated by games picked simply because they had launched. Even though there are over 600 gaming projects currently live at the moment, we try and pick ones that we as gamers want to play. But we’re also journalists, so we want to highlight projects that have gone the extra mile. But there is no secret recipe that defines the term “extra” here. It could be a development team’s unbridled passion, a unique gaming experience, or something that just tickles our taste buds. Whatever it is, it gets us really excited, and, we won’t lie, there are simply not enough projects that do this to justify a weekly post.
So instead we’re switching to two posts a month, a happy medium between the old and new formats. (more…)
