Rumor: Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia To Be Next Downloadable Titles?

By Jon Partridge on March 14, 2012 1:30 PM | Permalink |

shenmue.jpg Dreamcast classics, Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia are known as staples of the short-lived console and have a pretty large cult following. SEGA's Ben Harbone has hinted that these two games could be on their way to a downloadable service near you, telling GameReactor that the two classics "are a couple of our most requested games." And while the company "can't say 'yes' or 'no'" Harbone hints that "we may be working on them."

We can only hope that at least one of these titles makes it's way to current-gen consoles, but it would definitely be amazing if both make their way to our consoles. SEGA have Jet Set Radio on the way to HD consoles this summer, so show some support, buy that, and we might be able to relive Ryo Hazuki's quest in glorious high definition.

First Look at Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Gameplay

By Jon Partridge on March 12, 2012 1:45 PM | Permalink |

Tony Hawk and Chris Cole take us through the first look at the upcoming remake of the 90's classics and show us how things are shaping up.

Definitely a game to keep your eye on, especially if you're a fan of the franchise as the game itself delves back into it's own roots and is made up of a lot of code from the original games - but with a fresh new lick of paint that looks pretty much gorgeous. Get that soundtrack on and take a look at this video.

And We Go Back To The 90's With New Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Screens

By Jon Partridge on March 6, 2012 9:00 AM | Permalink |


Activision managed to answer many prayers by gifting the world the promise of a high definition, remastered version of the 90's classic with levels from the first two games to help make up for the abysmal releases that the Hawkman has had the displeasure of endorsing.

Utilising the original game's base code, and incorporating a sexy new lick of paint onto the stages of old, many people's childhoods will definitely be revisited. Just keep that soundtrack handy for this summer when it drops on XBLA and PSN, but in the meantime, check out these screenshots after the break in our gallery.

First Halo 4 In-Game Screenshots Revealed

By Jon Partridge on March 5, 2012 6:30 AM | Permalink |

2.jpgBrace yourself guys, the latest entry in the long standing Microsoft franchise is slowly making its way forward for release at the end of this year, but here's some in-game screenshots to wet your appetite. While Halo 3 and Halo: Reach were both amazing titles, I'm personally excited to what can be done with the Halo franchise with a fresh pair of eyes. With an all-star team of past AAA developers at 343 Industries, who are at the helm of the project rather than series creators Bungie, Corrine Yu, principal engine programmer, says "it's the best looking game on Xbox and other consoles we ever made".

Paul Featherstone, who took the screenshots states that these images were "100% untouched" and were taken using "a debug cam with in-engine Depth-of-field". And if that's certainly the case, then Halo 4 is going to be one of the most graphically gorgeous games on current-gen consoles and we definitely cannot wait to get our hands on it.

It's been five years since we were last with the Master Chief when we finished the fight and watched him drift off into space, and while ODST and Reach three years later were both fantastic entries into the franchise, I'm sure I speak for a lot of people when I say I want play as the the Chief. Even though Bungie are not steering the development of Halo 4, judging from this screenshot and the raw amount of talent available at 343, I'm sure the series is in safe hands.

More information is slated for later today.

Playstation 4 to Stomp the New Xbox and WiiU in to The Ground?

By Arif Aksit on March 4, 2012 8:30 AM | Permalink |

Logo-Sony.jpg So far the rumors about the performance of the next generation consoles have been very  disappointing. With performance of the new Xbox said to be about 6-8 times as much as that of the 360. While the new WiiU is said to be about 20% slower. This is a tiny step compared to how much PC hardware has advanced since the launch of the Xbox 360 and the PS3. And remember, the PC was already more powerful than either console when they launched, although the difference was only about 40%. However, if you are like me and dislike stagnation in the gaming world, rejoice because it seems that the Playstation 4 will still push the possibilities of what is possible for consoles. Hit the jump for more details and discussion.
