If you’ve paid any attention to the video games industry at all since the early days you’ve probably heard of a gaming legend named Tim Schafer. Tim’s biggest achievements are from Adventure games from his Lucas Arts tenure such as Day of the Tentacle and The Secret of Monkey Island. Since then he has gone on to work for his own studio Double Fine where they produce video games that go extremely over-budget and promise things that aren’t delivered or are changed at the last minute. Finding time away from developing games, Tim has recently attended the Game Developers Conference over in the U.S.A where he was given a chance to chat on stage as himself and controlling a literal … Continue reading
EA, Electronic Arts, is closing it’s Maxis branch in Emeryville, the branch best known for Will Wrights works on a number of games including Spore. We don’t know too much about what has happened other than the studio has closed. One of the designers at Maxis, Guillaume Pierre has shared his thoughts on Twitter, which is where we first noticed this story.

EA has done this in the past with notable studios, such as Westwood … Continue reading

Majestic Prince is the anime adaptation of the manga series by the same name by the author Rando Ayamine. The animated adaptation follows the teenaged mecha pilots, Team Rabbits as they protect the Earth from the Walgaru invaders using their mechatronic fighting units called AHSMB. The series itself is animated by Dokakobo and is a comedy action anime. We previously reviewed the first part, which can be found here.

However, the team soon finds that a sixth member will be joining the Team Rabbits group in MJP army. … Continue reading
Coming soon from Koei Tecmo is a follow up to the Playstation Vita’s Toukiden, called Toukiden Kiwami, appearing on the Playstation 4. In Toukiden, players are tasked with hunting down Oni, Japanese for Demon, which have begun to attack the world. The high-fantasy Japanese setting is a very interesting one that will set Toukiden Kiwami apart from its competitors. Behind closed doors at Mindscape’s (the Australian publisher) offices, we were able to go hands-on with an in-progress build of the game. From what we played, the story in Toukiden Kiwami involves a new warrior that travels to a remote village to assist in fighting the Oni plague growing in nearby areas. The story is told in short cutscenes, which have … Continue reading
