If you’re not caught up on the Yakuza series, but want to jump straight into 6 (for some reason), Sega has uploaded a “Previously on Yakuza” trailer to bring you up to speed. While this trailer actually ends up talking more about Kiryu’s final chapter, it does cover the major points of the relationship between Kiryu and Haruka and why 6 is going to be such a dramatic entry for the two.
Along with that, there is confirmation of a new edition of the game for those who couldn’t nab the Collector’s Edition. Dubbed “The Essence of Art” edition, this will feature the game with a hardcover art book package with some selected works from the Yakuza community. This art book will also be in the Collector’s Edition, so you don’t need to worry if you have that on reserve (like me).
If only TheBinding of Isaac could come out on Android, eh? Well, hope no more as MASKED is here instead, and it’s basically a 3D version of the excellent roguelike.
In fact, you might even prefer MASKED. It’s not quite as creepy for one, and the combat is more hack and slash than twin stick shooter.
But we might be getting ahead of ourselves. The Binding of Isaac is a roguelike by the creator of Super Meat Boy. You play as a young boy trying to escape from his crazy religious mother who’s trying to kill him. Standard.
That mostly involves battling a variety of horrific creatures through a series of The Legend of Zelda style dungeons. Along the way you’ll pick up power ups, hunt for secret areas, and defeat bosses.
MASKED is an attempt to bring The Binding of Isaac to mobile as a 3D title
You’ll also probably die an awful lot. Seriously, that’s a massive part of the experience of a roguelike. You might unlock a new character though, that has its own stats, and you’ll probably learn a lot.
MASKED is a game in a similar vein. Once again you play as a young boy who’s trapped in a dungeon, but this time it’s purgatory rather than his basement.
But the rest of the experience is largely the same. You’ll battle through dungeons, collect power ups, and defeat bosses. You’ll use a sword this time though, instead of your tears.
MASKED isn’t quite a full release yet though. This is just a demo of the full experience that’s currently still in development, and it’s out right now on Google Play.
We already knewARMS’ 4.0 update was landing tomorrow, but the mystery character was never shown. I guess a small hint of a temple setting should have clued us into his theme, but Nintendo has pulled back the curtain and unveiled Misango unto the World. He looks kind of like a reject PS2 era mascot, but I can dig it!
Along with the Aztec stylings, it looks like Misango will be able to utilize poison punches and torpedo arms. I’m a big fan of anything that can create mind games for an opponent, so I might gravitate towards Misango in the future. As with both of the previous character, Misango will be free with the new update, so you won’t have much excuse for not trying him.
With all of the controversy surrounding Star Wars Battlefront II, you think the last thing EA would want to do is open its mouth. Their response to one particular Reddit thread has become the most downvoted comment in the history of the website, so how can they put out the fire? Apparently by holding an AMA (Ask Me Anything) for all comers.
If you’re keen to get your voice heard and want to ask EA what the decision making process for microtransactions was, then set your alarm clocks for tomorrow (November 15) at 12:30 pm EST/9:30 am PST. A few key members from EA and DICE will be taking to Reddit to potentially answer everything thrown at them, which I’m sure is going to be completely civilized.
