Reservoir Dogs Video Game Take 2?

The original Reservoir Dogs was a heist movie that was also the first feature length film by Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill, Django Unchained). The
last time there was a digital release of the film was a little over a decade ago in a forgettable Playstation 2 title. Later this year, Big Star Games (Fist of Jesus) will be releasing Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, a top down shooter for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The game looks like it will take some inspiration from Devolver’s Hotline Miami with its top=down shooting and gory violence. A feature called ‘Time Back’ hopes to set it apart from the competition. Players will control a team of up to 3 robbers, one after another. Once one person makes their move, the game will rewind, and players will take control of the second robber while the first carries out the previous actions. It’s reminiscent to games like Super Time Force and Frozen Synapse. While the game will feature none of the actor’s voices, distributor Lionsgate (who holds the rights to the film) is working closely with the game’s developer and is working with Tarantino to ensure he approves of the game. Later this year we’ll see if Big Fish can do the film justice. At the least it can’t be worse than the last time Reservoir Dogs hit gaming systems.

Top Ten Games To Watch Out For in the First Half of2017

Tales of Breseria was released in the U.S. this past week. Introducing new changes to Namco’s ‘Tales of’ franchise, Tales of Breseria is one of many games that no doubt make an impact this year.

Yeah, 2016 sucked. Lets not mince words about it. Many of our favorite celebrities died (including Harambe the Gorilla), the election ended in the worst possible manner, and Batman vs Superman wasn’t as successful as people wanted it to be. However, it wasn’t all bad. The Cubs won their first title in nearly a century, the Cavs bought Cleveland its first major sports title in over 52 years, Civil War, Dr. Strange, and Deadpool were all awesome, Netflix rolled right along with flicks like Stranger Things, the Get Down, and Luke Cage, and best of all, there were a boatload of awesome games that were released throughout the year. Doom and Mafia III were unexpectedly awesome, X-Com 2 and Civilization 6 both set new standards in the strategy genre, Final Fantasy XV made the rpg franchise relevant again, Titanfall 2 and Watch Dogs 2 surpassed their predecessors, Stardew Valley, Mother Russia Bleeds, Hyper Light Valley, and The Witness held it down for the indie scene, while Overwatch became this year’s big new IP and multiplayer sensation. 2016 also laid the foundation for 2017 and beyond. Check out after the jump to learn about 10 games hitting consoles, handhelds, and pc, most of which hitting before the summer, one of which is already in stores now.

Disney Infinity and Microsoft Spark Cancellation and Analysis


This past week, we learned that Disney Infinity had been cancelled due to Disney Interactive’s decision to abandon console gaming. To add insult to injury, the company is closing down its internal studio Avalanche Software, leaving close to 300 people without work (hopefully not for long). This summer will see the release of two final playsets based upon Alice:Through the Looking Glass and Finding Dory. Even Worse, Microsoft decided to shutdown its Project Spark, the Xbox One and PC set of game creation tools that allowed users to create and upload games LittleBigPlanet style. Microsoft ended active development on the game back in September, releasing all the game’s dlc for free. As of August 12, the game will no longer have online access, as players will be unable to download content or upload to the cloud. The reason given for Project Spark’s cancellation was that most of the people involved with the project had moved on to other areas within Microsoft, it wasn’t feasible to continue supporting the project. Fortunately, unlike the last time Microsoft cancelled a big name game (Fable Legends) no studio was shutdown nor was anyone fired as a result. At any rate, this isn’t a good look for Microsoft, as this is at least the third title the company has cancelled (the first two being The Phantom Dust reboot and the aforementioned Fable Legends). Maybe we’ll hear about a replacement for Project Spark next month at E3.

As far as Disney Infinity, click after the jump to learn about scrapped plans, speculation, and possible reasons for cancellation.

Top Ten Games Hitting the First Half of 2016

The follow up to 2013's Lego Marvel Superheroes, Lego Avengers, being released today, not only looks to replicate its success, but is looking to be one of many games that will be making an impact this year.

The follow up to 2013’s Lego Marvel Superheroes, Lego Avengers, being released today, not only looks to replicate its success, but is looking to be one of many games that will be making an impact this year.Гидроизоляция бассейнов своими руками

Street Fighter 5 (PC, PS4)
Release Date: February 16
What It Is: Classic fighters such as Ken and Chun Li meet new fighters such as F.A.N.G and Necali to do battle.
My Thoughts: While Xbox One owners will no doubt be disappointed, this is why I?m glad to be a multiplatform user. I can?t wait to see if the new characters can hold their own with the classic brawlers, and I?m intrigued as to where this takes place in terms of the franchises?s storyline. While SF 4 made it by on nostalgic value, SF5 looks to take the franchise in a bold new direction.

EA Sports UFC 2 (Xbox One, PS4)
Release Date: March 15th
What It Is: The Sequel to EA?s first try with the UFC license. Featuring a host of new gameplay modes including a create-an-event, new knockout physics, and a roster of 250 fighters, including CM Punk and Mike Tyson (despite the former having yet to have a match and the latter being a boxer), EA UFC looks to surpass its predecessor on every level.
My Thoughts: EA UFC was fun, but several issues, not the least of which being overly complicated gameplay, held it back from true greatness. Here?s hoping the new improvements extend to the gameplay. If it does, EA could have the definitive MMA fighter on its hands.

Project X Zone 2 (Nintendo 3DS)
Release Date: February 16

What It Is: A sequel to 2013?s surprise hit. Once again, the storyline will bring together players from Capcom, Sega, and Namco. Players will encounter characters from Street Fighter, Streets of Rage, Xenosaga, Tales of Vesperia, Yakuza, and more. This time, Nintendo gets into the act, as players will also encounter characters from Fire Emblem and Xenoblade Chronicles.
My Thoughts: This is going to be pure Roleplaying goodness. Most players will likely only be familiar with a third of the game’s cast, but no doubt the game will be full of surprises.

Fire Emblem Fates (Nintendo 3DS)
Release Date: February 2016
What It Is:
The follow up to 2013?s Awakening. Playing as a user-created avatar, you intervene in a war between two kingdoms. The game?s story will be told in two chapters, Birthright and Conquest each having their own game. Shortly afterwards, a third chapter, Revelations, will be made available to players as downloadable content.
My Thoughts: With it?s permadeath option, deep storyline, and strategic gameplay, Fire Emblem is one of the few first party Nintendo titles geared towards core gamers. Despite the fact that it?s going to be a 3ds game, Fates seeks to be one of the biggest turn-based strategy RPGS ever.

Far Cry Primal (Xbox One, PS4, PC)
Release Date: February 23
What it is:
The most recent entry in the Far Cry series will take players to the prehistoric age as they step in the role of Takkar, a hunter in the fictional land of Oros as they attempt to hunt, survive, and eventually become leader of their tribe.
My Thoughts: This is no doubt an interesting direction for UbiSoft?s shooter. No doubt the graphics will be something to behold, but can Far Cry?s signature gameplay hold up without guns and vehicles? Only time will tell, but so far, all signs are pointing to yes.

Tom Clancy?s The Division (Xbox One, PC, PS4)
Release Date: March 8
What it is:
He might have been dead for nearly 3 years, but that isn?t stopping UbiSoft from continuing to slap his name on every quasi-military game they make. The Division is the latest title to carry the Tom Clancy name. The Division is a massively multiplayer online shooter that takes place in a New York city that?s been ravaged by a virus. Playing as a division agent, you are assigned to bring order and hopefully find the source of the virus. The game will feature day/night cycles, upgradable skills and equipment, and destructible environments.
My Thoughts: The Division was one of several games coming this generation that was hyped ever since it began. With its March 8th release date edging closer and closer, now is the time for UbiSoft/Red Storm to put up or shut up. Hopefully The Division can redeem the Tom Clancy name after Rainbow Six Siege.

X-Com 2 (PC, Linux, Mac OS)
Release Date: February 5
What It Is:
The Sequel to 2012?s successful reboot. X-Com 2 takes place in a world where the X-Com organization failed and the council of nations surrendered to the alien invaders. X-COm is now a resistance group set to turn the tide against the invaders.
My Thoughts: 2012?s X-Com reboot was an awesome surprise and a great re-visitation of the classic strategy series, and X-Com 2 looks to deliver the same deep strategy. If nothing else, prepare to get attached to your squad only to see them die again and again.

Quantum Break (Xbox One)
Release Date: April 5
What It Is:
Created by Remedy (Max Payne 1 & 2, Alan Wake), Quantum Break is a much hyped Xbox One exclusive. Playing as Jack Joyce (played by X-men 2?s Shawn Ashmore, you use your time travel powers to halt a sinister plot by rival Paul Serene (played by AIdan Gillen of the Wire fame). The series will launch alongside a live action TV series featuring Serene as he makes decisions that affect the game?s plot.
My Thoughts: Like the Division, Quantum Break has been hyped up since before the release of the Xbox One. As its early APril release date looms closer, it will be time to see if Quantum Break?s gameplay can stand up to its ambition. If it does, Quantum Break could be yet another sleeper hit for Remedy just as how Alan Wake was during the Xbox 360 era.

Mighty Number 9 (ps4, ps3, ps Vita, Wii U, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Linux, Pc, Mac, Nintendo 3ds)
Release Date: February 5 TBD Spring 2016
What It Is:
Keiji Inafune?s spiritual successor to Mega Man. Taking control as Mega Man Beck, you and your partner Roll Call set out to take down several robots gone bad. Once they are defeated, you take their abilities.
My Thoughts: As of yesterday, we learned that this game will be delayed for the third time to a tentative Spring 2016 release date. Though disappointing, at least Inafune is committed to ironing out the bugs. When and if it finally does hit, players everywhere will be interested in knowing if this game will be able to carry on the legacy Inafune started with Mega Man.

Release Date: TBD Spring 2016
What It Is:
A Reboot of the classic genre-defining FPS game. Formerly known as Doom 4, Bethesda went back to the drawing board in hopes of delivering a classic FPS experience. There is not gonna be any automatic health recovery system (instead players will have to seek out health pickups like back in the old days), several demons from the series will return in new forms, while the storyline will take a backseat to the gory FPS action. Of course what would Doom be without player mods? Players will be able to construct and share their own multiplayer maps and content by way of a feature called snapmaps.
My Thoughts: Can Doom 2016 redefine the genre the way its predecessor did over 2 decades ago? Highly doubtful. However, as Wolfeinstein, Skyrim, and Fallout 4 have proven, Bethesda is adept at retooling classic franchises. Even if it doesn?t reinvent the wheel, it will provide excellent shooter action for those weary of the Call of Dutys and Battlefields, and introduce ID Software?s classic to a new generation of triggermen.

Other Titles Scheduled for Q1 & 2 Release:
Banner Saga 2
Dark Souls 3
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2
Tekken 5
Pokken Tournament

If this wasn’t awesome enough, even more hits are schedulated for the second half, including the Final Fantasy 7 remake, Crackdown 3, Chikara Action Arcade Wrestling, and the Legend of Zelda Wii U. Not to mention the VR titles coming to the Occulus Rift and Playstation VR. Anything you are looking forward to? Let us know in the comments.

Lost Classics Special: Top 10 Franchises Introduced this Console Generation

Sunset Overdrive, an Xbox One exclusive title developed by Insomniac (Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank), is one of many new gaming franchises set to make its debut next console generation.

Like it or not, this next generation of consoles will soon be upon us. With the Wii U having been out for little over half a year, some will say it’s already here. The Wii U, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 will present players with dozens of sure to be classic titles, including several new franchises. Lets not forget however that there were several classic franchises that came from this generation. So now is a perfect time to take a look at the classic franchises that were spawned this past generation. To qualify, a franchise has to have it’s first title released on the Wii, Xbox 360, or Playstation 3, so you won’t see the Elder Scrolls or Halo in this list. Also, a game has to have more than one title in it’s series, so that’s why you won’t see Mirror’s Edge here.
