The first gameplay footage of 3D Streets of Rage 2 has been revealed and guess what? It looks like Streets of Rage 2 in 3D! Watch the gameplay footage below:

Video Spotlight: There Was a Time When Sonic Boom Looked Quite Pretty

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric is a game we probably want to forget about at this point, but this demo reel from animator Tuan Nguyen shows the game’s environment looking considerably more fleshed-out. This footage comes from an earlier build of the game that featured more dense foliage. Check it out below:

If I was to hazard a guess as to why these details were paired back for the console release then I’d say it was because the Wii-U simply can’t handle it. It’s also worth noting that Rise of Lyric is the first Wii-U game powered by CryEngine 3 so Big Red Button were probably breaking a lot of new ground and learning as they went.

Total War: Warhammer is finally official! The worst kept secret at The Creative Assembly is now ready to see the light of day thanks to the below reveal trailer. Sadly the whole thing is a cinematic trailer so there’s no actual gameplay to be seen at the moment. Regardless, you can watch the trailer below:

The game will allow you to command, “gigantic monsters, flying creatures, legendary heroes and storms of magical power”. Sounds fun!

No release date has currently been revealed other than an ominous, “coming soon” at the end of the trailer. Hopefully that means a 2015 release.

Nep_ReBirth1_logo_us

The Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth trilogy is coming to PC and while the first game is currently available, the second and third haven’t had their release dates set… until now. Well sort of; one of them has a solid date and the other has a projected date.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation is released on the 19th of May while Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3: V Generation is set for an Autumn release. These games are HD ports of the PS Vita games and now feature the option to choose Japanese or English voice overs.

If you are unfamiliar with the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise then you can expect an action RPG which features a fantasy world themed around video game consoles. The game takes its moniker from the cancelled SEGA Neptune console and various SEGA characters cameo in the series. The Re;Birth games take place in an alternate world based on the video games of the 1980s. While the games are not published by SEGA, they are made in collaboration with the company.
