Persona 5 is set to release April 4, 2017 with tons of exciting extras.
The games release in Japan was overwhelmingly successful and the supposed delay is to insure us a game worthy of the Persona title. We here in the US have to wait till freaking April of next year to immerse ourselves in one of our favorite games. So to appease us Atlus and Playstation are throwing us a bone …….
The next installment of the Persona saga will feature dual audio on PS4 and PS3. This DLC is reported to be free, for forever.
Persona 5 will have dual audio. For PS4 and PS3.

Arc System Works reveals the next chapter in the BlazBlue saga.
I'm glad to see that they're making another Blazblue game.
I like the new characters that are going to be added. Azrel looks like a total badass. Bullet looks as if she can kick ass. As for Amane, I don't know what to say about him, other than his fighting style looks interesting.
I also like how some of the returning cast is going to have some changes in moves, as well as appearance (Noel, in Particular).
Currently slated for Arcades in Winter 2012, and for PS3. No word yet on the 360 ver.Read full story...
A preview to what may be one of the most popular shooters out there this year.
With Borderlands 2 making its arrival in a couple of months, I would like to talk about some of the things that we could expect from this game. Does this game deserves the hype that it deserves? Let's find out:
The game takes place 5 years after the events of the first game, after the Vault Hunters has discovered the secrets of the Eridian Vault. a man who goes by the name of Handsome Jack has taken credit for the vault hunters' action and has amassed the wealth of the Vault, thus allowing him to take over the Hyperion Corporation and as such effectively gained dominion over Pandora. Promising that he will clean up the lawless planet, Handsome Jack embarks on a journey to eradicate Pandora's existing colonists and industrialize the planet. The Main Symbol for Handsome Jack's rule is a massive supply base in the form of an "H" on Pandora's moon, which is visible at all times, and can also deploy Hyperion troops at any point on Pandora.
The game begins with you, the player, fighting to the death in a gladiatorial tournament for a chance win a limitless cache of loot that is run by Handsome Jack. As you succeed through and gain notoriety, Handsome Jack sees this as a threat to his popularity with his people. At the end of the tournament, Handsome Jack decides to decline giving the reward to the player and leaves him/her for dead in a tundra. The Guardian Angel from the first game then appears to you and says that Handsome Jack need to be killed, guiding the player to find and rescue the four original Vault Hunters from Hyperion's clutches in order to accomplish this much needed task. Jack's intentions may be fully unknown, but it may have something to do with having to finding "The Warrior", an ancient evil that is located somewhere in Pandora.
Gameplay will pretty much remain the same from the first game with a lot of new features. The enemy AI will be more intelligent, allowing them to respond to certain situation, whether it is to deploy a shield, taking cover when injured, healing their allies, or even using their allies as shields. They can even encourage teamwork, such as flanking, combined fire, as well as taking cover when injured, while some of the more "primitive" enemies, such as Psychos, will still embrace the old mentality of "Oh look, a Gun! I'll put myself in front of it!!". Some of the other new features includes an expansive and customizable weapons system, along with reworked four-seat drift-able vehicles and vehicles physics elements, and a dynamic quest systems. One good example of this is that if you were to take too long in saving a friend, he would be killed and the mission will fail, thus affecting the course of the main quest.
When it comes to the cast of characters, you have a really nice lineup of characters you can play as. Here's the list of characters with a very brief description of them:
- Class: Gunzerker
- Special Ability: able to Dual-Wield guns
- Class: Siren
- Special Ability: Phaselock
- Class: Commando
- Special Ability: Turrets
- Class: Assassin
- Special Ability: Able to duplicate and become invisible for a limited time, able to deal critical hits with sword.
Another cool thing is that you can completely customize your character in many ways, whether it's something basic as changing the colors of the clothes and hair, to actually changing the way your character looks with new hairstyles and new clothing. Like with the first game, as you level up in the game, you will be able to use skill points to unlock more abilities from three distinct specializations for each of the base characters.
Graphics and Sounds:
Like the previous game, Borderlands 2 will keep their cartoon-esque cell-shading graphic style. In my opinion, I really liked the graphic style of the first game, and to keep that for the second is a step in the right direction. Also, unlike the first game, in which we had loadable levels for each region, the whole world will be interconnected, allowing players to see the world from any point rather than staring at a "skybox".
As for the sound, I can't really say much about the sound. I figure it's going to have the same type of sound just like from the first game, So I'm hoping that we get some quality sound and music in this game.
In a sense, is this game worth getting? I say YES!!! I fully believe that this is going to be one of the best games of the year. What makes me really believe in this is the fact that this is one of the few shooters in this day and age (other than Battlefield 3) that I would really take the time to play. It's story and gameplay elements are what will keep me enthralled at the experience. I give this game a HYPE IT!!!!
Verdict: Hype It!!!!Read full story...

My[Arthvader] preview for The King of Fighters XIII. An in-depth look at the most important reasons why Arthvader is hype for KOF13.
With The King of Fighters XIII coming this November, I'm soo hyped up for this game. I've been a fan of the series since 94, and from the looks of it, I'm sure it'll be one of the best one yet. Here's the trailer:
The story takes place after the event's of KoF XI. Ash Crimson has just recently managed to claim two of the three power held by the decedents of those who sealed the Orochi 1,800 years ago (Chizuru Kagura and Iori Yagami), while leaving Kyo Kusanagai to be his final victim. As Elisabeth Blanctorche, a former comrade of Ash, prepares to stop him, fighters from around the world received a letter with an invitation to another King of Fighters tournament tournament, in which it's be hosted by a person being simply labeled as "R". This person is Rose, the sponsor of the tournament, who is currently being controlled by "Those from the Past", the organization behind the two previously held tournaments that has been trying to break the seal of the Orochi.
Let's talk modes first. The game will have the following modes: Story, Practice, Challenge, Customize, Tutorial, Replay, Gallery, and Online.
In the Story mode, you can view events from the perspective of multiple characters, and it will be influenced by the decisions you make, as well as your battle results. when it comes to battling the CPU in the story mode, you'll be given random objectives, or Target Actions, which when completed, will give you bonus points, as well as some bonuses for the next round. Also, pre-battle dialog will be shown during the single player mode.
With the Tutorial mode, newcomers will be able to learn the basics of the game. the tournament sponsor Rose will explain the basic controls of each character, as well as the importance of each gauge.
The Challenge mode will consist of three modes within itself: Survival, where you fight for as long as you can, Time Attack, Where you pretty much just play through the game for the fastest time, and Trial, which you perform various combos with each character.
The Replay mode is where you can view replays of matches you saved after battles. I don't know yet if you can watch replays with friends yet.
The Gallery is, well, it's self explanatory. in this mode, you can view various pieces of art done by the staff.
Another neat feature for this game is the fact that you can customize the character's colors to whatever you want. Sure, at first, there won't be as many colors available at first, but as you keep playing the game, more colors will be available, allowing for unlimited customizations. the best part is, you can use those customizations in online play.
The next thing I'll mention is gameplay changes. First of all, the following gameplay mechanics from the previous game were removed for this game: the Critical Counter system, the the Clash system, and the dynamic, zooming camera. In the place of these mechanics, the following systems and changes has been added:
- The EX Mode: Players will be able to use powerful version if their moves for the cost of one meter for EX Desperation Moves, and two meters for EX Super Desperation Moves.
- The Triple Cancel: this mechanic allows players to unlimitedly cancel their character's moves. the Triple Cancel is dependent on the Hyper Drive Gauge.
- The Hyper Drive Gauge: A three-tier gauge which will gradually drain as player cancel the moves. Whenever the the gauge reaches the max, the player will then go into a state called "Hyper Drive Mode" in which players will be able to cancel unlimitedly for a short amount of time.
- Neo Max Desperation Move: whenever the player is in the "Hyper Drive Mode" while having at least three power stocks, they'll be able to pull off this powerful technique. Players can also link this move into a combo, in which you'll do a "Max Cancel".
All I have to say is this, the songs in this game are soo totally badass. Instead of having generic songs for the stages, we get back songs for each team. Not only that, each team's theme, in my opinion, sounds like it belongs with them. Listen to Team Japan's theme here, and see for yourself:
As you can see from the image above, you can tell that the game improves on the graphics. The game will feature a total of at least 8 new hand-drawn stages, while returning stages from the previous game will get a visual upgrade. each characters themselves will have at least 20 different colors to choose from, all of which looks really nice, while some characters might have head swaps (Raiden & Takuma, I'm looking at you), and if the twenty colors aren't enough, you can use your own customized colors (I explained customization mode in the gameplay section of the preview.)
Final Verdict: HYPED!!!
Even though the game won't be out just yet, I'd say BUY IT!!!!!
Also, pre-order this game to get a special 4-disk set consisting of KoF music spanning the whole franchise.
Before I go, here's some videoes of high level KoF XIII players (I found these on iplaywinner's youtube page):

It's been a long while since Cinderkin fist posted on here that there would be a Voltron game, but now there's a trailer for it.
Voltron is a classic anime, and one that I loved as a kid. I still love it today. I haven't had a chance to see much of the new one on nickleodeon, but I what I did see doesn't hold up to the original. Luckily this game seems to follow the classic series rather than the new one.
I for one can't wait. I love voltron, and this looks like a decent space/ground scrolling shooter with some combat thrown in. The combat will most likely be terrible, but I don't even care. With thrown in cutscenes straight from the classic anime, the only other thing I can hope for is the original narrator. I'm hyped for this game. We can all look forward to it this october on both XBLA and PSN.

The long awaited Welcome Back Program is here, a long with some FAQ.
A while back Sony announced we would get free stuff in the Welcome Back Program This was a bunch of stuff from PS Home, 2 free games for PS3 and PSP and 30 days free of PS+. Also, they have lame free movies for the weekend and tons of bonuses for PS+ people. This is good and all but there are CONSTANT errors going on within the Store, I don't think many people can get a hold of these games at the moment. Some people can't get inside the store, others booted out, some download the game but it isn't showing up and a few other problems that need to be kinked out.Read full story...
