zelda_logo

Have you ever thought to yourself, “you know what would be awesome? A Dynasty Warriors game, but with Zelda”? Well, worry no more, as Nintendo has announced a new Zelda Title, being created by the team over at Tecmo Koei that is responsible for the Dynasty Warrior games, to do just that. Take a look at the trailer below.


I won’t lie to you, I am being cautiously optimistic about this one, but I kind of like the idea. No word yet on an official name for the game yet, but we will let you guys know as soon as they tell us.

witcher-3-wild-hunt-hd-wallpaper-3

Today marks the day that CD Projekt RED unveils their first gameplay trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This game is on many people’s radar, and rightly so as it looks fantastic; if The Witcher 2 is anything to go off of, they will continue to push the bounds of the RPG Genre in not only size and scope, but also in sheer graphics fidelity. Take a look below at the trailer, and try not to druel all over your keyboard.


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is slated to be released on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC in 2014.

Gamestop Still Has 2.3 Million Customers Waiting On PS4

Gamestop store

Gamestop announced today, that they have sold out of their initial allotment of Playstation 4’s, and that they are currently sitting on a backlog of 2.3 Million orders waiting to be filled. Gamestop executives said that the initial sales of the PS4 have outsold sales of the PS3 by more then 80% during the same period.

This is looking like fantastic news for Sony, as they already announced that they have sold 1 Million Playstation 4’s in the first 24 hours after release. Now, it appears that the initial hunger from consumers for the console will continue through the Holiday’s, and that will make trying to find a PS4 likely very difficult.

To celebrate the launch of Ryse: Son of Rome for the Xbox One, Microsoft has released this launch trailer for the game. I have to admit, they did a great job putting this one together. I have had the chance to play Ryse and I walked away not all that impressed, but this trailer sure makes it look like something special. Here is hoping the game is a lot more then what I have seen of it so far. Take a look at this fantastic launch trailer below.


Ryse: Son of Rome is launching this Friday, Nov 22 alongside the Xbox One.

Xbox One Won’t Have Twitch Streaming At Launch

TwitchTV

Microsoft has announced more details about its upcoming Twitch app today, among them, the fact that the Xbox One will not be able to stream over Twitch at launch, but it will be a feature they are hoping to have sometime in early 2014. The Twitch experience on Xbox One will be open to Xbox Live Gold members when they launch the app. So to at least get all of us excited for it when it finally does come around, they have released this video showing off how the Twitch app will work when it comes out.

I will be very interested to see how this compares to the built in Twitch on the PS4 when it gets released.

New Indie Publisher, Renegade Machine Starts Up

Renegade Machines logo

So, our friend Tom Ohle from Evolve PR and Khaled Ibrahimi, Cinematic Producer of Killzone 3 and longtime developer, have started a new Indie Publishing Studio called Renegade Machine. They have created this new studio to help indies find success. Using Tom’s knowledge of media and PR and Khaled’s knowledge of development, they intend to be the publisher that can help indies in whatever manor they may need it. As Tom puts it,

Perhaps a better answer is that we want ultimately want to help developers wherever we’re needed. I’ve spent a long time in video game PR/marketing — 12 years and counting — so certainly we’re able to help devs on the promotional side. My cohort Khaled Ibrahimi has spent his career on the other side of the coin — development, that is — and as such we’re able to help with production issues, dev pipelines, managing a virtual team and everything else you need to do to get a game out the door. We’ve also both been around the block enough times to be able to consult on business matters, make connections, help with distribution and so on.

We realize that developers often have a negative image of publishers: they force ideas on you, take too much money or just plain suck. We want to use our experience in working with publishers to build an appealing publishing option for a wide range of indie needs. To that end we’ve pulled together a survey. If you’re an indie dev, we’d really appreciate a few minutes of your time so we can truly understand what you’re looking for in a partner.

These guys are looking to change how publishers work with studio’s, bring new exciting games to market, and to really change the gaming landscape. If you want to learn more or are a developer looking to get in touch with these guys, head over to their website – Renegade Machine.

I can’t wait to see the games that come out of this, it sounds exciting, and we wish them the best of luck!

Jack_3DSXL_Bundle

Earlier this month Nintendo of Europe announced that they would be releasing a limited edition Zelda themed 3DS XL to celebrate the release of the upcoming 3DS Zelda game. Unfortunately, there was no word on whether this system would be released here and North American gamers were once again left out. Thankfully this morning Nintendo has officially announced plans to release this Zelda Themed 3DS XL bundle in North America. This limited edition bundle will be avalaible Nov. 22 for $219.99, which includes the system and a download code for a copy of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds game. I checked local retailers as soon as I heard this news and pre-orders weren’t open yet but I’m guessing you’ll probably be able to pre-order soon.

Check out images of this great looking system below and read the press release from Nintendo for more information.

ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD FOR ZELDA FANS

New Gold-and-Black Nintendo 3DS XL Comes with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 29, 2013 – The Legend of Zelda series has always been associated with the color gold. From the original gold-colored cartridge for The Legend of Zelda on NES to the box art of the recently released The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for Wii U, when fans think of “Zelda,” they think of gold. With the launch of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on Nov. 22, the tradition of gold continues. On the same day, a new Nintendo 3DS XL bundle will launch that includes Nintendo 3DS XL hardware with gorgeous gold-and-black coloring and the iconic Triforce on the exterior, as well as a download code for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The legendary system is gold on one side and black on the other, beautifully representing the two parallel worlds Link travels between in the game. The special bundle was announced in a video starring The Legend of Zelda franchise producer Eiji Aonuma, and will be available at a suggested retail price of $219.99.

“This beautifully designed Nintendo 3DS XL system continues a tradition that has delighted our fans for decades,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “It’s a special bundle for a very special video game.”

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is set in the same world as fan-favorite The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for Super NES and takes place in the same Hyrule after many years have passed. In this new game, Link must journey between two worlds, Hyrule and Lorule, using a mysterious power that lets him become a drawing on walls. Link’s ability to merge with walls allows players to solve puzzles and explore dungeons in a new way. Players are also able to buy or rent various items throughout the game, allowing them to explore dungeons in any order they want, adding a new level of freedom to the game play.
