All Articles: God Mode

Thomas Was Alone, Dead Island: Riptide, Star Trek, more added to PS Store


Another big day for the PlayStation Store as indie platformer Thomas Was Alone, zombie melee-er Dead Island: Riptide, and movie tie-in Star Trek are now available to purchase with your download dollars. Like the rest of the games in Sony’s Spring Fever promotion, Thomas Was Alone is a Cross-Buy title, meaning you’ll be able to pick up the PSN and Vita versions in the same download.

Also available this week is Ubisoft’s World War II dogfighter, Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII; the latest game in the Soul Calibur series, Soul Calibur V; Capcom’s standalone Dragon’s Dogma expansion, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen; and the retro shooter God Mode.

Finally this week, Sony has added a pair of Vita games, the ninja-riffic Draw Slasher and the ridiculously titled Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R… I mean, seriously now… there are four extra modifiers in that title. Even Capcom won’t go that far.

Hit the jump for more details on all of these games and a few others (including a new PSP game!). And be sure to visit the PlayStation Blog for a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)

XBLA Today: God Mode


Are you ready for a third-person shooter where you attempt to challenge the gods themselves? Actually, you’ve probably played one recently as several games use that jumping off point. But Microsoft has another one for you today as God Mode has been added to the Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).

Developer by Old School Games and published by Atlus, God Mode promises a “full-priced boxed title” experience on the XBLA:

Do you like running? How about gunning? What if special abilities are thrown into the mix? Upgradable weapons? Let’s say there’re dozens of on-screen enemies to unleash this firepower on, and as your reward for dispatching them you get experience and gold to collect that can be used for character customization and new equipment–all the while playing alongside friends in 4-player cooperative play! If you like the sound of all this, then you’ll love God Mode.

Retro shooter action and RPG elements are combined in this new downloadable third-person shooter. God Mode combines non-linear gameplay, fast and frantic shooting, hordes of on-screen enemies, a fully functional online coop mode, and features visuals and gameplay that rival that of a full-priced boxed title. Matches rarely–if ever–play out the same, as dozens of in-game modifiers can significantly alter the gameplay on the fly. Characters are fully customizable, both in appearance and equipment, which continually evolve. Gold and experience are constantly accrued and used to unlock new and satisfying weaponry and unique powerful abilities, both of which can be further upgraded.

God Mode coming to PC, PSN, XBLA in 2013

Atlus has announced they’ll be publishing God Mode, a downloadable shooter from Old School Games and Saber Interactive in early 2013. God Mode is in development for the PC, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade and promises to be “an exciting third-person shooter that looks like a retail product […] with gameplay features and cooperative play like no other downloadable title.”

God Mode is a shooter that places players in the boots of a former god who has been banished from Mount Olympus along with the rest of his family. The former god must battle through the Maze of Hades to return to the Pantheon and reclaim their rightful place alongside the other gods.

God Mode will carry a budget price of $9.99 (800 Microsoft Points) and include a four-player multiplayer (local LAN and online), fully customizable gods, a Rage meter, and in-game modifiers known as Tests of Faith.

I assume your might will be tested as well.
