Evolve continues to add to its list of pre-release accolades as it took home five 2014 Gamescom Awards including the coveted “Best of Gamescom Award.” Turtle Rock’s 4v1 shooter also earned the awards for “Best PC Game,” “Best Console Game (Sony PlayStation),” “Best Console Game (Microsoft Xbox),” and “Best Online Multiplayer Game.”
Super Smash Bros. 4 and LittleBigPlanet 3 were the only other games to win multiple awards. The 3DS version of Nintendo’s fighter was selected by the judges as “Best Mobile Game” while both versions were picked by attendees as “Most Wanted.” Meanwhile, LittleBigPlanet 3 was awarded “Best Social / Casual / Online Game” and “Best Family Game.”
The full list of winners can be found after the break. (more…)
Risen 3: Titan Lords is today’s lone addition to the Xbox Live Games Store. Developed by Piranha Bytes and published by Deep Silver, the game is a traditional RPG in the medieval mold that is sure is sure to make some gamers out there happy.
It has been priced at $49.99 and is available to download now. And in case Risen 3: Titan Lords is brand new to you, here’s a description of the game straight from the Xbox Live Dashboard:
The world has been abandoned by its gods and is scarred from the rampage of the Titans. Humanity is struggling to regain strength and rally its forces. You, however, have more pressing concerns: your own life has been shattered and you must set off to reclaim what is lost amidst the darkness that is spreading throughout the world. Step into a classic hand-crafted role-playing world – full of rugged charm, colorful characters and demonic dangers. From quaint medieval-style towns to delving deep into the dank dark of mines, to the supernatural shadow world, there is a wealth of possibilities waiting to be explored.
The real highlight of yesterday’s PlayStation Store update was the “interactive teaser” for PT, but a few interesting games are now available as well…
- Hohokum (PS3/PS4/Vita Cross-Buy) is this week’s PS Store Play selection and it asks players to guide a “curious kite” through a colorful world.
- Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed (PS3 and Vita) puts players in the middle of Tokyo’s “Electric Town” to battle semi-naked vampires.
- Surgeon Simulator: A&E Anniversary Edition (PS4) is a surgery simulation. Yay for accurate titles.
- Risen 3: Titan Lords (PS3) brings the popular RPG series back to its medieval roots.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And, as always, a rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
If you haven’t been keeping up with its development, you might not be aware of how absolutely insane Akiba’s Trip: Undressed and Undead. XSEED will release the PS3 and Vita game this week and, if you don’t mind, I’m just going to quote from its official description: “The player’s goal is to identify vampires called ‘Synthesizers’ with the help of an in-game smartphone app, then engage them in battle to strip their clothes off so their bodies are fully exposed to sunlight.” Just… what? And by the way, this insanity all takes place in Akihabara, Tokyo’s “Electric Town” where all the otaku congregate.
Three other games will be released this week including…
- Risen 3: Titan Lords (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), which has dropped the pirate theme of Part 2 and returned to the medieval setting of the first Risen game.
- Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited, a Vita re-release of NIS America’s popular strategy RPG.
- A retail version of World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition, the online-only tank simulator.
Seriously though, Akiba’s Trip sounds BONKERS.
