Three Resident Evil Revelations trailers lurch out of Gamescom

You might call them a horde of zombie trailers. Or perhaps they’re a pack. Though I was always partial to a murder of zombies myself.

Whatever you call it, Capcom has unveiled a new story trailer for Resident Evil Revelations along with two trailers devoted solely to gameplay. Like a zombie going for your jugular, it’s a gusher of goodies today!

You can check out the story trailer above. Both gameplay trailers are after the break. (more…)

Epic Games has five new games in development

The president of Epic Games, Michael Capps, announced at Gamescom that the company is working on five games.

“We have five new games at various stages of prototyping and development,” Capps said, though had no other details to give, other than that he is “glad to be targeting the PC again as a primary platform.” They’re currently wrapping up Gears of War 3 and finishing the Unreal Engine 4.

I don’t know about you, but just the thought of a new Unreal Tournament game is making me all tingly. I could really go for some Unreal Tournament 3 deathmatch right about now.

Batman adds 3D support for Arkham City to his utility belt

The addition of anaglyphic 3D support was one of the major selling points for the Game of the Year Edition of Batman: Arkham Asylum. Batman: Arkham City will go one better and include both stereoscopic 3D support (for those with 3DTVs) and anaglyphic 3D support (for those who don’t mind the red and blue paper glasses).

Here’s what WB Games had to say about Bruce Wayne’s latest high-tech toy:

Gamers on Xbox 360 and PS3 can delve deep into Arkham City’s breathtaking environments and immersive gameplay in stereoscopic 3D when playing on any 3D HDTV and wearing active shutter glasses that are compatible with the television. In addition, Batman: Arkham City supports NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, allowing PC players to also experience the action in stereoscopic 3D on GeForce GPU-equipped desktop or notebook PCs and compatible 3DTVs.

Fans with HDTVs can enjoy Batman: Arkham City in anaglyphic 3D with technology compatible with all high definition TV sets and visible to players wearing 3D glasses available for the video game.

Batman: Arkham City will Bam! Pow! Zap! its way into stores on October 18 release.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor to ditch gigantic controller, uses Xbox 360 controller + Kinect

Remember this monster of a controller from the original Steel Battalion game for the Xbox? Well, no more! Capcom recently announced that A) they’re no longer trying to invade your house’s living room space with another similar controller, and B) that the new control scheme for Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor will feature simultaneous use of the Xbox 360 controller and Kinect.

It’s unsure whether this new control method will be easier than the enormous control panel linked above, but Capcom has said that the Kinect will play a large role in the game – from high fiving your crew members to operating a turret gun. The bottom line seems to be that Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor might just be the game that will make you look the most idiotic when playing by yourself.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor will be released exclusively for the Xbox 360 in 2012.

Ninja Gaiden III pins down PlayStation Move functionality

I always love video game conferences because of all the new developments being announced; this week, Tecmo and Koei announced that the Playstation Move controller will be an added full functionality to the upcoming brutally-slashing sequel, Ninja Gaiden III.

The statement also notes that the Move functionality will “give players a new edge when slicing through their enemy’s flesh and bone.” Sounds interesting! It is Ninja Gaiden, after all. It simply wouldn’t be without the mention of tearing apart enemies. The Move should be a welcomed addition, but I’m curious to see how much more frustration this will add to the already-difficult series.

Resistance: Burning Skies added to Vita lineup

Fans of the Resistance series got some splendid news today with the announcement of Resistance: Burning Skies for the PlayStation Vita. Starring a brand new protagonist, the game is being developed specifically for the Vita, and has a story written by William C. Dietz, author of both Resistance novels.

I loved Resistance: Retribution for the PSP, and I can’t wait to see how the series will translate onto the futuristic hardware of the Vita.
