Bethesda, for the past few days, have released some really weird teaser clips for their next game. Announced today that the full reveal will in fact be tomorrow (April 19th, 2013), we can’t wait to see what they got up their sleeve. I know I personally am looking forward to the next Fallout game, but I’d gladly welcome any new franchise that they want to put out.
Can anyone make any sense of these clips? Bethesda mentioned this has nothing to do with the Fallout franchise, so this must be something new yes? Rumors say that it could be the next Wolfenstien or Zwei (next game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami).Posted in: Microsoft, News, PC, Sony Tags: bethesda, Bethesda Game Studios, bethesda softworks

SEGA revealed a new teaser trailer for Disney’s Castle of Illusion, starring Mickey Mouse, today. The teaser is an expanded look at an uber teaser they released last week. And while the game looks like it could be something to see, the most notable thing that I can see is the omission of Nintendo platforms for the game’s release.
The original Castle of Illusion was a a platformer game developed by Sega and released for the Sega Genesis and Sega Master System way back in 1990. That was followed up with a release on Sega’s portable Game Gear system in 1991. It is the first game in Sega’s Illusion series of video games starring Mickey Mouse. It was amongst the second wave of games initially released for the platform which helped seal the console’s reputation within the period until the release of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Trion Worlds released its ambitious, yet lukewarmly received, shooter title Defiance two weeks ago and the developers are already working on their first post-launch patch due out next week.
A client side patch will allow players to replay the main story missions after completing them, improving the quality of in-game pop-up menus and allowing voice/text chat channels to be muted independent of each others. These aren’t exactly world changing features but it is nice to see the devs adding new options for those who wish to play the game solo, or mute out annoying kids screaming over their headsets!
Trion will also be issuing a week-long bonus to XP, Loot and an exclusive in-game item, the Daredevil, to all players who signed up during the game’s launch week due to some technical issues. It’s always nice to see developers making amends when something goes wrong.
Defiance is a third person shooter developed by Trion Worlds that was released recently and one of its main selling points is the eventual tie-in with the SyFy show of the same name. Set in a future San Francisco Bay, players can choose to either to become a member of an alien race, or you know stay human, and play with thousands of other players. Reviewers have stated that the game’s pacing is a little slow but a smooth launch and a strong collection of collectable weapons have boosted its review scores among critics.

Disney looks to take aim at the Skylanders market when it releases Disney Infinity August 18th, 2013. I don’t want to go as far to say that Disney Infinity is a complete clone of the Skylanders franchise, but it takes quite a bit from it and builds on to an amazing concept. One of the main differences between the two is in Infinity you can open up the Toy Box (if you’ve played Toy Story 3 you should be somewhat familiar with what it is) and create a whole unique world. Either by building on to already created worlds or starting completely from scratch.

Deep Silver and SouthEnd Interactive are set to release Sacred Citadel next week, Wed. April 17th, for XBLA, PSN, & Steam. Sacred Citadel is part side-scrolling brawler, a bit RPG, and a game you will want to have some co-op buddies around for. It does support both online and offline 3 player co-op, so go find your co-op friends and get them ready for it.
There are four different character/classes that you can control (see videos of each after the jump). There is the Safiri Warrior, Khukuri Shaman, Ancarian Ranger, & the Seraphim Mage. It’s pretty obvious where three of the four characters skill will lie, but the Khukuri Shaman is basically your cleric. So there is pretty much a character for every style, be it fighter, archer, mage, or healer.

NetherRealm studios has officially revealed Killer Frost and Ares for Injustice: Gods Among Us. While it’s been common knowledge at this point that the two characters were in the game, a trailer now showcases both characters in action. Killer Frost seems to play a bit of a homage to Mortal Kombat veterans Sub-Zero and Frost with an array of ice based attacks such as a slide known to both ninjas and ice shard projectiles. Her hero ability when activated, has each alternate strike she performs to freeze the opponent in place, opening many combo opportunities. Ares on the other hand, seems to have multiple tools such as teleportation, invisibility as well as a giant ax and sword which has multiple uses such as for projectiles, combo extensions and in one situation you can see him drop the ax to then drop Killer Frost on top. Both character’s cinematics are pretty violent for a T rated game but this is beeing made by the fathers of Mortal Kombat. Both characters are showcased on the trailer below. Injustice: Gods Among us will be released in six days! (April 16th) on all 3 major platforms.

The game’s plot involves a younger Bruce Wayne facing up against Gotham City’s vilest villains long, many of them for the first time.
