FastRacingNeoAlpha1

Over the past year or so, Shin’en Multimedia’s new racer, FAST Racing Neo, has been a topic of much debate when talking about the Wii U’s hardware and capabilities. We’ve heard time and time again that it will take better advantage of the Wii U’s resources. A while back, we saw environmental screens of the game that show the engine a little. However, outside of those environmental shots, we haven’t really seen much on the game.

Well, I got some good news for you. Shin’en Multimedia updated their website today with some alpha screens. Oh my goodness, this game looks good.

New Antipole Screenshots Released

Antipole released for DSiWare back in 2011. It was also available on PC and Xbox Live Indie Games. I played it and enjoyed the heck out of it when I did. It’s a platformer that uses magnetism as a primary mechanic. It was challenging at times, but I couldn’t put it down until I was done. Saturning Games has released a new batch of screenshots … Continue reading New Antipole Screenshots Released

Shapes of Gray Screens and Trailer

Shapes of Gray is an interesting looking game concept that I’m keeping my eye on. The developer, Trent Steen of Secret Tunnel Entertainment, described the game to me as WarioWare meets Hotline Miami. I’ve also heard it described as WarioWare meets Dark Souls. Just exactly what each of those means is really hard to tell. From the video of the game I’ve seen it’s a … Continue reading Shapes of Gray Screens and Trailer

Ganondorf Heads Up New Hyrule Warriors Info

 Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf Closeup

Nintendo hosted a Nintendo Direct presentation last night focused on information all about the upcoming action title Hyrule Warriors. The video showed off new items, details on Adventure Mode, more details about existing characters, details about DLC and even one new playable character, Ganondorf.

For starters new items that were shown off bring more familiar Zelda game play to the stage. Items like bombs allow you to blow up elements of the environment to uncover rupees, hidden passages and take out large swathes of enemy soldiers in one blow. Chain chomp acts like a large flail allowing you to swing it around your head or even use it to create an area of effect shockwave. The hookshot, a Zelda staple, gives you incredible range for your attacks and allows you to reach areas that would otherwise be unreachable. Bombchus are no longer mouse-sized but are huge and capable of some pretty sizeable destruction. Cuccoos are both a hazard and a help as they will attack players that harm them. You can use this as an advantage though as you can also have them attack enemy characters. Gold Skulltulas are also hidden throughout the environment just like they were in previous Zelda games.
