No matter what you say, Final Fantasy XIII was awesome so I’m shunning all you non-believers. I am still pretty excited with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and what more with this bit of news from the US PlayStation Blog! Pre-ordering the game will net you a SOLDIER first class uniform (the one worn by Zack and Cloud in Final Fantasy VII), a Soldier band, as well as one of the most recognizable weapons in video game history, the Buster sword!

Also included in the DLC is the Final Fantasy VII fanfare (victory music) and animation! Check out the video and weep if it takes you back.

Welp Square, you sure know how to tug at my heartstrings. Preordering nowwww… *throws $60 at the screen*

My new favorite character after SiMo, the coffee-making sniper droid.

Last week marked the release of the first DLC for Sanctum 2, a hybrid FPSxTower Defense game by Coffee Stain Studio. This DLC introduces the ballista-touting-rogue-insurgent-shorty-of-a-rebel named Tsygan and controlling her is a blast!  Her main weapon (Ballista) can deal the most amount of damage among all weapons when fully charged or deal damage over time (DOT) with pulsing bolts which release shock waves damaging all creep around the target it impales. That ain’t even the kicker, the final round in Tsygan’s weapon deals MASSIVE amounts of damage. We’re looking at a hit modifier of at least 200%. I don’t have a definite number because I don’t really bother to do math while killing things. This last shot modifier apparently also affects the DOT of her Ballista’s secondary fire (DOT pulse bolts) and the SMG’s poison darts so Tsygan is pretty much THE badass DPS machine right now. Hitting weak spots takes some adjustment because the Ballista fires at an arc so you need to adjust your aim depending on the distance of the target to some extent; nothing a little muscle memory can’t solve. The new secondary weapon, Gatling Laser, is also pretty bad-ass. It has high rate-of-fire, long range, and even deals damage over time on everything it hits. The secondary fire (right mouse button) of the Gatling Laser charges up the weapon and deals are-of-effect (AOE) damage around your character. It can be used as crowd control or concentrated fire on a single target making it my new favorite secondary weapon as well, with the SMG in a close second.

The the number of “+” signs? That’s the number of times mutators evolved the blasted creep.

The new creep introduced in this DLC can be a real pain, especially when you are trying to complete the five (5) feats of strength or when you neglect their presence in the battlefield. Mutators are the worst. They basically shoot gunk at other creep to increase their health and if left alone will eventually evolve normal creep to epic boss levels. Healers aren’t that bad because they expose themselves in the air unlike the mutators who stay in the rear which makes them difficult to kill but likewise can be a big threat if you don’t kill them off immediately.

The four (4) new maps bring all sorts of new challenges with its layout but mostly because of the Mutators and Healers thrown into the mix. They are also a massive pain when you attempt to finish them with the five (5) feats of strength (each feat basically makes the game harder). I haven’t gotten around finishing the feats of strength with the original content but I have made some attempts on finishing the new maps with the feats only to repeatedly fail so hard at them even with Tsygan’s bad-ass DPS abilities. 

Surprisingly, I haven’t unlocked any of the new perks but I was able to finish all four (4) new maps. It looks like I’ll have to start grinding or playing old maps with feats of strength on to take my level to 20 and beyond (I’m currently level 19) in order to try out the companion bot (pet). I also haven’t gotten around using the new towers namely the Range Spire (increase surrounding tower’s attack range) and Slow Field Dispenser (allows your character to take portable mines to slow down creep on the fly)I’m not really a fan of support towers since I just simply go all DPS with some Kairos (tower which slows creep) to create choke points. It seems like I’ll have to explore more tower placement tactics if I want to accomplish all maps with the feats of strength on though. However, if you just want to finish the game without challenging yourself too much, you need not bother with the new perks of towers.

2013-07-02_00013 2013-07-02_00011

Good Points:

  • The new weapons bring in more fun factor with higher damage output.
  • Maps are still well designed and very challenging when attempting to finish with the five (5) feats of strength on.
  • The new creep bring in a new set of challenges.

Bad Points:

  • You can’t acquire all the new feats and towers without grinding which is rather pointless.

Things that can swing either way:

  • I suppose if you hate getting your ass kicked, you will not like Sanctum 2 or any of its DLC.

Sanctum 2 is available on Steam and Xbox 360 for $14.99 and the first DLC: Road to Elysion can be purchased for $3.99. You can also get a season pass for all four (4) planned DLC for $11.99.

Coffee Stain Studio’s tower defense FPS hybrid: Sanctum 2 just released its first expansion pack: Road to Elysion. This first of four planned DLC expansions introduces a new playable character who is deeply tied up with the game’s story line. If you haven’t read my review of the game, delving more into the story line probably means more comic panels. I’m still disappointed about that approach but hey, new playable character, new weapons, and new perks which include a pet robot? There are more reasons to be excited than disappointed with Road to Elysion. I’ll certainly give some impressions as soon as I’ve gone through the expansion.Santcum2RTE_TSYGAN01 Oh yeah, check out their promo video above too, it’s hilarious.

Road to Elysion Features:

• New Playable Character and Weapons – Tsygan, the “Rogue Insurgent”, who also introduces the Gatling Laser and handheld Ballista to the game.
Four New Maps – These maps will introduce new tactics to make things more refreshing for those who played the hell out of Sanctum 2 already.
• Two New Towers – The Range Spire dramatically increases the reach of nearby offensive towers and the Slow Field Dispenser dramatically hinders the speed of enemies to make choke points more effective.
Enchanced Enemies – New support monsters can heal or mutate attacking creep to give you all sorts of new problems and if that isn’t enough, you’ll have to deal with an aerial boss monster this time around.
• Additional Perks – Customize your character even more with six new perks, including one that gives you an in-game pet robot that will fight for you.

The Sanctum 2: Road to Elysion DLC is now available on Steam for $3.99 and on Xbox Live Marketplace for 1200 MS Points. You will need the full version of Sanctum 2 to play the DLC which goes for $14.99 on said platforms. But if you really like Sanctum 2 like me, you’re better off getting the season pass for all four (4) planned DLC at only $11.99.

Atlus recently announced the day 1 downloadable content (DLC) that will be available for Shin Megami Tensei 4 on its release month. The DLC includes three different looks for the main protagonist (relevant to meeee) so you can change his hairstyles if you do not like the default. This is free for everyone who has the game, and will remain so.

The next DLC is a stat-boosted armor which is also tagged free. This is good reward for players who are jumping in the SMT bandwagon right away on its birth month. The armor (called Platinum Surcoat Set), will help players in the early parts of the game and is also relevant to me since I am new to the Shin Megami Tensei franchise. This DLC will be free until August 16th, and will then be priced at $1.00 after.

smt4

An extra map pack will also be available to aid players in getting more experience points at the start of the game.  A collectible demon will also be part of this DLC and will set you back $2.00 to get it. Reminds me of the EXP and Gold map pack from Fire Emblem: Awakening. Hmmm, are games really taking this direction now? I guess DLCs like this are meant to help new or casual gamers beat the challenging hump at the start, but I’ll try playing without it to compare the experience and let you guys know.

According to Atlus, more DLC news will be announced before the game’s release date of July 16th. I’ll definitely be picking up this game for July so I can get the free armor, but we’ll see if I can play it right away because Animal Crossing: New Leaf might still be eating my time by then, haha!

I really enjoyed playing Guacamelee! — Developer Drinkbox Studios really did an awesome job melding the Metroidvania gameplay with a fully functional brawler combat system. And who doesn’t like luchadors? Seriously.

Graham Smith, Drinkbox Studios co-founder discussed the future of the IP in an interview with IGN.

Guacamelee! DLC is confirmed to be coming. They are currently hard at work with the initial add-on content and that’s a sure thing. Graham also mentioned that they are on the “design phase” for more DLC after that.

In the interview, Smith has this to say about Guacamelee‘s success:

“It has been really successful, if you compare it to our previous games like Mutant Blobs Attack, the sales have been really, really good. It’s great, we’re really happy to be at the top of the charts both in America and Europe. At the same time, I don’t think we’re anywhere close to making Minecraft numbers. I feel like maybe there’s a little bit of difficulty, not just for us but for downloadable or indie games in general, to break more into the mainstream audiences. So we’re not selling millions of copies of the game, for sure. But that being said, we’re really happy with the way things are going with our sales and everything.”

And when asked about the possibility of a sequel:

“I don’t know yet, it’s something that we talk about. We’re talking about what our next new IP is going to be, so we haven’t really decided on that yet. But one of the things as part of that conversation is the possibility of doing a sequel. But we haven’t really made any decisions either way with that.”

I’m really glad that Guacamelee! is doing well and things are looking bright for the devs. Are you stoked for a possible sequel, or would you rather Drinkbox develop a whole new IP?

Guacamelee! is now available as a cross-buy title (buying it entitles you to both the PS3 and PS Vita versions) on the PlayStation Store for $14.99. Click Here for my official review of the game.

The first set of the Soul Sacrifice DLC is now available in the PlayStation Store and along with the two quest/boss add-ons is a title update with more changes. Sony was gracious enough to offer all of these for free so I went ahead and played it to check what’s new with the game.

Facebook and Twitter Integration. You can now post on Facebook or Twitter your accomplishments once a day. Give your friends another reason to block/restrict you in exchange for Lacrima. Totally worth it.

Camera Speed Options. As we said in our review, one minor fault of the game is the slow camera movement and that there is no option to change it. That is not true anymore.

DLC Boss Quest: Behemoth. It’s a fucking tree. And he poisoned my ass. :(

DLC Boss Quest: Dullahan. He is a big Knight that has a big chain-whip with his big head at the end. Badass.

2013-05-29-173752

 

These are the major additions and changes I’ve noticed. I don’t know if there are new spell rewards as I haven’t even beaten them because the people I play with are afraid of the new archfiends and they acknowledge I’m the only one who can beat them.

Happy Sunday, gamers!

The guys at the PS Blog sacrificed (heh) their time to give players free DLC offerings (spells) for Soul Sacrifice. If you’re still on the fence about buying the game then our official review might tip you over.

Here are 4 voucher codes redeemable via the North American PSN Store — meaning your PS Vita needs to have a US/Canadian PSN account associated with it.

AFTER you redeem the codes, launch the game then choose Librom > Network > Peddler > Claim Gift to add the spells to your inventory.

Note: These codes are redeeemable multiple times so feel free to share to other Soul Sacrifice players. Sony will disable the codes probably next week.

Lobo is the latest DLC character to come out of Injustice: Gods Among Us – the latest game to cash in on comic book heroes.  You can get him for the low, low price of $5.00 in PlayStation Store or 400 Microsoft Points in XBOX Live Marketplace.  Nintendo is still doomed as there is still no confirmation if he will be coming out of the Wii U version of the game.

Aside from Lobo, the Teen Titans and Bad Girls skin packs are also out if you care about dressing up your characters like virtual dolls.  Deathstroke, Raven and Cyborg is up for the TT pack (hehe) while Wondy, Catwoman and Harley are in the Bad Girls pack.  Both are available for $3.00 each in PSN and 240 in XBLM.

Namco-Bandai Games recently released their first promo video for Super Robot Wars Operation Extend (SRWOE) for the PSP. It’s the first contemporary 3D Super Robot Wars game to be a fully downloadable PlayStation Network title, so there will be no physical items (UMD, manual, box). The game marks the premiere of playable characters and robots from Mobile Police Patlabor, Zoids and Keroro Gunsou, adding to a plethora of notable series veterans such as Macross F, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Code Geass and Gundam.

Although Super Robot Wars (SRW) is entirely Japanese, in 2006 Atlus localized 2 games into English, namely SRW Original Generations and its sequel Original Generations 2 for the Game Boy Advance. Despite the language barrier, a significant population of niche gamers who play SRW actually exist, not only in the Philippines and Asia, but also in USA and Europe. Of course, those that can speak Japanese (and to a certain extent Chinese) have a definitive advantage, but seeing people who can really play and finish a SRW game without any knowledge of Japanese is impressively respectable. I give kudos to their resourcefulness and their willingness to overcome difficult obstacles for the sake of gaming.

SRWOE will be out this summer (in Japan) and will be playable in both the PSP and VITA. The game is split into 8 chapters and will be released in gradual increments (hence the name Operation EXTEND). You can purchase each chapter for 1,000 Yen each or opt to pre-purchase all 8 for 6,480 Yen, though buying everything in advance will not give you the full game content from the start. Its only advantage is you save more money in the long run. However, for a limited time, chapter 1 will be only 500 Yen (50% off)!

Now, most of you will be asking valid questions, like where to get Japanese PSN cards and how to create a Japanese PSN account. Kotaku has got you covered. For the cards, you can hop on to Play-Asia. Google is your friend.

According to the press release we got from the good folks at Konami, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is getting a new DLC pack that will be available for download on May 14, 2013 (May 15 in the Philippines).  The DLC will feature a side story with LQ-84i as a playable character.  The pack promises hours of game time fun with LQ-84i as you can tinker with the character’s new abilities and characteristics while beefing up more of his background story.

The DLC’s storyline features LQ-84i’s story before he joined forces with Raiden and became Blade Wolf.  New weapons, abilities, as well as a new boss is featured in this story arc.

The Blade Wolf DLC will be available for $6.99 in the PlayStation Store and 560 MS points in the XBOX Live Marketplace, so make sure you have enough left on your wallet come May 14.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is developed for the PS3 and XBOX 360 by Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames.  For now, enjoy the following screenshot gallery!

PS Vita Monster Hunter-ish action game (last time I’m gonna mention the comparison) Soul Sacrifice comes out in 2 days and we are all hyped up to the wazoo!

What got us more excited is the planned post-release DLC. Free DLC. Fureeeeeeee!!!

Series creator Keiji Inafune (also the creator of Mega Man and other games) announced that there will  be AT LEAST 10 FREE BOSS DLCs coming out post-launch for Soul Sacrifice. This is in addition to the extra expansion episodes which will be paid DLC.

Here are the trailers of 2 of the DLC bosses. One of them is called “Gosto”. Though we know it’s engrish for “Ghost”, my mature and classy brain can’t stop thinking it’s a macho dancer in Japan.

This looks awesome.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has nothing to do with Far Cry 3. It’s a stand-alone FPS  (you don’t need to have Far Cry 3 to play it) and it will only be available as a digital download.

Watching the kick-ass VHS-style trailer that came out today (embedded), we learn that the only thing that ties this to Far Cry 3 is the fact that it uses the same open-world gameplay mechanics and engine. For the story it seems to be sporting more of a 80’s G.I. Joe cartoon kind of vibe than the island survival setting of FC3.

The game takes you in control of protagonist Sgt. Rex Colt (part man, part machine, all cyber-commando!), who leads the battle from the ashes of “Vietnam War 2”. His mission is to defeat the cyborg military group known as Omega Force whose leader looks like the villain from The Centurions. It’s also shown that you will still be hunting wild animals, mainly huge freakin’ reptiles called “blood dragons” which shoots lasers out of their eyes! Oh my.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will release on the same week for all platforms (PSN, XBLA, PC). No official pricing yet but Steam has it pre-listed for $15. I dunno about you but the trailer sold me completely.

Heads up, PS+ members! The Cave (PS3) and Tekken 6 (PSP, compatible with PS Vita) gets added to your Instant Game Collection tomorrw. That means you can play these games for the low, low price of $0.00.

There are also discounts for Rocketbirds: Hardbroiled Chicken (PS3/Vita) and the new Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational DLC Pack.

If you are not yet a PlayStation Plus subscriber and you own a PS3 and/or a PS Vita, I suggest you become one. The ‘free’ games and discounts that Sony has been dishing out for the service more than makes up for the subscription fee. And that’s saying it lightly.

Subscription to the PlayStation Plus service is $18 for three months or $50 for a whole year.
