Final Fantasy XV – March Update Trailer & Breakdown

Final Fantasy XV is getting a huge update soon and it will be adding on to the ‘Chapter 13’ section of the game. New story scenes will be present, but how they will be added to the game is really interesting. One of them is giving gamers a ‘taste’ of the gameplay style of Gladiolus through a playable section in the chapter where you control him. It was a really nice surprise and joins the improved gameplay Noctis has when using the ring (he loses his weapons during this chapter of the game).

The first major piece of DLC (costing $4.99 on PSN/XBL) is Episode Gladiolus and will last about 2-3 hours in length but offers challenge mode and content you can access in the main game once you complete it. It details some backstory behind the titled character through a unique combat system not seen in the base game.

Both the major update and Episode Gladiolus are releasing soon, so keep an eye out if you loved FFXV!

[LINKED] Game Informer: Sonic Forces Impressions

During its South By Southwest panel last night, Sega revealed the name for its upcoming mainline entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise as Sonic Forces. The reveal was followed by a quick teaser clip showing some gameplay featuring Modern Sonic running through a European-style city as destruction rains down from above. We had a chance to see a longer version of this stage.

Sonic Mania (PS4/Xbox One/Switch/PC) – Pushed To Summer Release + Flying Battery Zone

Sonic Mania is getting delayed into Summer 2017 so that the team can have more time to polish the game, add more zones and create a great experience. To tide fans over however, a new zone was announced for the game, or rather a returning zone from a Classic Sonic game.

Flying Battery from Sonic & Knuckles is being re-mastered for Sonic Mania and it looks quite strong. Lots of fun level gimmicks and expansions on original level are present, with a great remix of the track sounding great as well. With summer likely meaning June or July for this title’s release, we will likely learn about more stage coming to the game within the coming months, so stay tuned for further information.

Sonic Forces (PS4/Xbox One/Switch/PC) – Modern Sonic Gameplay, Main Theme, Details

Sonic Forces aka Sonic Project 2017 was officially shown off at a recent Sonic event. Lots of details and information was released, so we will be breaking it down.

First is the gameplay trailer, showing off how Modern Sonic plays in the game. He mirrors the Generations/Unleashed gameplay style heavily and the level shown off presented the blue blur speeding along at high speed. Level design doesn’t look that impressive at first glance but this is likely the very first zone, so it’s easing the player along until more complex level designs open up. Generations comes to mind, as while Green Hill Modern was very linear, the other Modern Stages were far more open. Also helps that the level shown off seems to span miles upon miles, larger then any other Sonic level shown thus far.

The wisps are back too, as Sonic is seen collecting white wisps before boosting, implying that boost is tied to the creatures like in Sonic Colors. Maybe other wisps will return and we will likely know more in the future. Sonic is the only one playable, as both his Modern and Classic incarnations will be featured in the game. A third play style is happening but no information on that has released. It’s speculated that a new character or ‘Boom’ Sonic could be the third style but that is just guessing on my part. 

Graphics and effects are another factor to consider as well, as it fantastic. Slash effects when Sonic races across puddles, explosions colliding with the landscape and lots of visual information in the background present a large-scale battle while you race through the stage. Story was detailed as well, with the game taking place in a time where Eggman has won. Sonic and friends are working together to put down Eggman for good, with radio chatter (not unlike in Sonic Heroes) playing in levels as Sonic runs through them. So the plot will be major in this title unlike past Sonic games.

Music is impressive, with a main theme (demo version) being released and the music playing in the gameplay clip sounding distinctly Sonic. The main theme is clever too, blending classic and modern sounds perfectly together, closing with a beautiful piano piece at the end of the track. Vocal themes are going to be added in and Crush 40 will be working on the song. 

Overall, the game looks promising and we will likely learn more in the coming months during events like E3 2017 and within Sonic-themed events. Stay tuned for further information and gameplay.

This is coming out a lot sooner than I expected. Wonder Boy is one of my most anticipated games of the year solely because of the visuals and music alone. There’s a lot of love being put into this remastered and I’m definitely going to buy it as soon as I can. I mean just look at how great this game looks

Wreck it Ralph 2 coming out March 9th, 2018

Disney has officially announced that the highly anticipated sequel to the hit film “Wreck It Ralph” is coming out exactly 1 year from today

I loved the first one and is one of my favorite Disney movies. I hope that the sequel will have more video game references than the first one. I’m also interested in what the plot is about since all we know is that Ralph wreck’s the internet.
