All Articles: Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut
Six new games are now available through the Xbox Live Store in today’s update…
The Xbox One will play host to three of those games as Lego The Hobbit, Kinect Sports Rivals, and Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut have all been released for Microsoft’s new console. Kinect Sports Rivals brings the popular minigame compilation to the Xbox One for the first time while Strike Suit Zero is now available for consoles in an expanded and enhanced new edition. Lego The Hobbit is also available on the Xbox 360.
Another Xbox 360 release this week is MLB Advanced Media’s first foray into video game development, R.B.I. Baseball 14. The beloved baseball franchise is back and so is its signature style of fast-paced gameplay. Before today, you could say that they don’t make ’em like R.B.I. Baseball 14 anymore. But now they do again. Finally this week, the third episode of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us, A Crooked Mile, is available to download through the Xbox Live Arcade. The latest tale of murder in Fabletown has been priced at $4.99, but will be free to anyone who purchased the Season Pass.
More details about all of these titles can be found after the break. (more…)
Prepare yourself for an unexpected journey with today’s PlayStation Store update. Lego The Hobbit is now available to download for the PS3, PS4, and Vita… just in time for the Blu-ray/DVD release of Desolation of Smaug.
If controlling a Lego Minifig version of Bilbo Baggins doesn’t interest you, how about a massive starfighter that also morphs (some would say transforms) into a flying mech? Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut is now available to download for the PlayStation 4 in an enhanced, expanded, and updated version. We took a look at the game’s new features a few weeks ago. Speaking of newly enhanced and updated versions of previously released games, the PS4 is now home to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Square Enix’s MMO will be available in stores on April 14, but players who elect to download the game will be able to play it six days early.
Rounding out this week’s store update is the next episode in Telltale’s Fables adaptation, The Wolf Among Us: A Crooked Mile; the return of R.B.I. Baseball franchise in R.B.I. Baseball 14; and a PS3 release for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. Persona 4 is definitely a PS2 classic and it is now available to download through the PS2 Classics section of the store. Fancy that.
Microsoft plans to have a huge presence at this year’s PAX East convention, but temper your expectations, as most of the games they’re bringing to the show are already available to all.
The centerpiece of the Xbox booth will be this Spring’s biggest game, TitanFall. It will be joined by cartoony shooter Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (originally released in February), game creator Project Spark (which is currently available in open beta), and a quartet of launch games (Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Killer Instinct). Early April releases Kinect Sports Rivals and Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut will also be playable at the Microsoft booth.
As of right now, the only unreleased game Microsoft plans to show in its PAX East booth is Super Time Force. This leads me to guess that Super Time Force is probably going to be added to the Xbox Live Store pretty soon. Just a hunch.
More details on Microsoft’s PAX East 2014 plans for all of these titles are available after the break. You can also read all about the panels the consolemaker will be hosting, including a Project Spark panel, a TitanFall panel, and a live recording of Major Nelson’s podcast. (more…)
Born Ready Games has announced that their transforming mecha shooter, Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut, will be available for the PS4 (through the PlayStation Store) and Xbox One (through the Xbox Live Store) on April 8. Priced at $19.99 on both platforms, the Director’s Cut will feature a graphical upgrade, new voice actors, and a completely restructured campaign.
To celebrate the release date announcement, the developers have put together a new developer diary discussing the changes to the game.
In Born Ready’s trailer for Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut, there are three simple steps to winning: “Pilot the Strike Suit. Obliterate the enemy. Save Earth.” That’s easy enough, right? The Director’s Cut, which is referred to as the “definitive version of the game,” has “a restructured campaign… with an adapted story and all new dialogue,” according to Born Ready’s announcement. This restructuring allows players to man the Strike Suit even sooner, jumping right into the action.
Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One in March, and Born Ready will be announcing a PC version “later this spring.”
