A brand new title in the God Eater franchise – God Eater 2: Rage Burst – alongside an enhanced remake of the original have been announced for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Windows PC to be published by the folks at Bandai Namco Games.
In a brief announcement trailer we see cuts of garbled, possibly corrupted text, interspersed with anime cut scenes that tell a quite confusing tale about some type of infection that has ravaged the world.
The God Eater franchise is an action role-playing franchise that sees the player take the role of an unemployed warrior who decides to take on larger than life creatures. Originally debuting on the PlayStation Portable in Japan in 2010 an enhanced port of the original God Eater made its way to North American PSPs in 2011.

Namco Bandai Games will be releasing the next entry in the Tales of series in Europe and North America later this month and to celebrate the upcoming western release the publisher has detailed some of the first downloadable content coming for Tales of Zestiria, and hey some of it is totally free!
Fans who purchase the game and register on either Bandai Namco’s VIP Corner in Europe or North America will gain access to an additional chapter titled Alisha’s Story which will expand the game’s single player story. The VIP Corner will play host to some free Mystic Artes as well, so make sure to grab those! There’s also a free theme available for PS3 players as well, sadly no such bonus for PlayStation 4 players.
In terms of paid downloadable content Namco Bandai will release several licensed cross-over costumes for your party members. The first of which is none other costumed inspired by the 1990s classic anime (and one of my personal favorites) Neon Genesis Evangelion. There will also be an Idolmaster cross-over costume pack available as well – complete with accompanying background music!
Here’s the full run-down from Namco Bandai Europe:
Additional Chapter: Alisha’s Story ( An additional quest available for free until 18/11/2015, available on the BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment VIP Corner)
Exclusive Mystic Artes for Mikleo, Lailah and Alisha available for free for all Tales of Zestiria buyers on the VIP Corner
When buying the game on PlayStation®3, players will unlock the same free theme offered to Japanese players for the Tales of 20th Anniversary. Meanwhile, PlayStation®4 owners will get an exclusive dynamic theme featuring Sorey, Rose, Mikleo and Lailah.
The legendary mecha license created by Hideaki Anno, Evangelion, will be represented through costumes for Sorey, Alisha, Lailah, Edna and Rose for the delight of European fans!
Idolmaster Costume Set: Dedicated outfits, attachments, unique battle voices and BGM for Alisha, Rose, Lailah and Edna!
More costumes will also be available from launch: including the Seaside Resort Costume Set & School Costume set.
We’ll have more on Tales of Zestiria as it approaches release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC (via Steam).
I wasn’t sure how much fun I’d have with an aerial combat game when this came across to me. I mean the last real game I played in this genre, and I mean really played, was After Burner way back on the SEGA Master System! I played that game to death, though I was just a kid at the time. Any other flight sim or combat games I’ve played in the past lost my interest fairly quickly, either because of their repetitive nature or their steep learning curve and difficulty.
That has changed with Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy + for the NEW Nintendo 3DS. This game is actually pretty fun to play.
The first thing I want to talk about right off the bat is the audio in the game. I know, it’s an odd thing to lead with, especially in a review that would typically be mostly about the gameplay. I love the audio in this game.

If you’re looking for a slower paced RPG with action based combat and romantic anime overtones with occasional lightly perverted jokes, this title is for you. Time and Eternity is a game you relax to since it does take a decent amount of time to play through. Combat especially can be quite lengthy and the battlefield areas can have quite a bit of ground to cover. This review contains early on spoilers.Read More
Star Trek looks and feels like the movies and sucks you into the action. The game, with the voice actors, music and visuals so much like the franchise itself, is very satisfying despite some of the minor troubles.
First and foremost the game is built to recreate the feeling of watching and playing right along with the latest Star Trek movie. The visual presentation, musical score and the actors are all true to the 2009 film. All of the original cast members from the newest films lent their voices to the game.Read More
