Bleed 2 Is Locked And Loaded For Release Tomorrow

Posted on February 7, 2017 by Les Major

Bleed 2 Title

If you haven’t played Bleed, you’ve really missed out on some indie game magic. With solid controls, slowing time mechanics, and free aim shooting it’s a wild ride! Bleed 2 looks to be even more of that action with lots of improvements. Of course we’ll be covering the game with a review coming up soon and hopefully I’ll get some video on the go as well!

Take on the role of Wryn, the worlds greatest (and only remaining) hero! With an invading force of villains to battle, she’s ready to yet again take on anything they can throw at her. Wryn’s ability to slow time, air-dodge, and free aim really creates some dizzying moments in a barrage of bullet-hell action. With new and larger set pieces, that thrill ride is just going to get even more intense in this sequel!

Bleed 2 hits Steam tomorrow! February 8th, 2017.

Report: Square Enix Recoups Final Fantasy XV Development Costs

Posted on February 7, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Seems that Noctis, Gladio, Prompto and Ignis succeeded in one particular mission the first day that Final Fantasy XV was available to the public – breaking even on its development costs. The game’s director Hajime Tabata stated to DualShockers during a recent visit to the company’s Japanese offices for their Business Development Division that the game was profitable right from the start.

Final Fantasy XV was a monumental success in the West with Square announcing that sales of the game had exceeded 5 million units on launch day so it is no surprise that Tabata & Co broke even right out of the gate. FFXV was the first entry in the franchise to have a simultaneous worldwide release, typically prior to this latest title FF games would come out in Japan first followed by localized releases as the translation was completed.

Additional content will be coming to Final Fantasy XV including single player episodes based around Gladio and Prompto as well as a PlayStation VR experience based around FFXV’s world.


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Has Gone Gold

It appears that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has gone gold according to a tweet by Monolith Soft developer which Google Translate reads as “A certain title launch party at a certain hotel in Kyoto”. Is this one game the next entry in the Legend of Zelda series? According to Neo Gaf user Steiner this is indeed the case.

It would make sense for Breath of the Wild to go gold considering it will ship alongside the Nintendo Switch in less than a month on March 3rd.

Here’s the original untranslated tweet:
