IGN gives us a more informational look into the new Alice game.
Good info and gameplay have been released slowly for Alice: Madness Returns. From what I've seen it keeps the dark and strangeness of the first game. What I feared was it being a mere platformer with a twisted feel. From what this recent IGN video shows, it is looking more and more like that. Fortunately we get info on some of her weapons and how the work, along with Alice's shrinking ability. Also a little intro about the story is done incase you aren't familiar.
The game still has time to show us the possibilites for an insane story , which it NEEDS to have considering this is a single player game with no talk of multiplayer yet. What I really wanted from this sequel was a feeling of eerie-fright and awkard terror mixed in with some mind-fucks. But it seems like Crash Bandicoot with blood. I do certainly like the graphics, combat and the mood of the game, just looking for a little more of something. What do you guys think of the video? Leave your thoughts in comments below.

Teaser Video for new Sonic Game in the making as a part of the 20th Year Anniversary.
Sonic Generations, coming sometime this year...and that is all about we know. No official website yet but a domain name was taken. The official teaser video was uploaded to Facebook only, but it was uploaded to youtube by http://www.youtube.com/user/soniconlinefr
Doesn't show much, besides traditional Sonic. It's awesome seeing the black eyed, chubby chilli-dog eating sonic again. not sure if anyone is still a huge Sonic fan, it just leaves a nice childhood memory. Don't be a jimmy, leave a comment on what you think, and what would you want in a new Sonic game?

Not so new DLC coming to PSN and XBL for a low low price.
Remember the pre-order deals that were voted on for RDR? Golden Gun Pack, Assisin Outfit and War Horse will be available starting Tuesday April 12th for the awesome price of $0.99 / 80 MSP each!
The Deadly Assassin Outfit
John Marston's Deadly Assassin outfit causes your Dead Eye meter to regenerate at twice the speed. With more Dead Eye, you have more time to place each shot with total accuracy, making you the deadliest gunslinger in any fight.
The Golden Guns Weapon Pack
Available for use in the Red Dead Redemption Single Player story, the player who wields the Golden Guns receives more Fame for each kill. The more Fame you get, the more in-game side missions become available. So there will be more opportunities to duel, more kidnapped townsfolk to rescue and you can bribe lawmen for less.
The War Horse
There are countless horses to be found in the massive world of Red Dead Redemption, but none is stronger, faster or tougher than the War Horse. Whether storming gang hideouts, exploring the wilderness for hidden treasure, or outrunning the law, the War Horse gives gunslingers an advantage in nearly every situation.
Any now you see why they are so cheap. This DLC is badass nice for someone who just started the game and wants some low priced bonuses, but for people who have been playing, this is easy to pass up. I'm not purchasing any of these, but some of you are. What do you think of it? Atleast they are still updating Red Dead Redemption. Leave a comment on what you think below.
Side Note: These were part of possible pre-order deals for RDR. Rockstar confirmed they will do the same for L.A Noire. But look how long RDR has been out until they made it DLC >_>
Is the $15 Hack n Slash with RPG elements worth your time and money? Find out in the review.
Moon Diver is a side scrolling platformer with plenty of action. There are 4 characters Seyfert, Hitori, Tolb and Ourion. All of these characters can be lvled up by killing stuff and find new abilities to use.
It's bad, but thats ok, this is a hack and slash with some leveling up. The entire game is basically story-mode but the problem is how they try to tell it to you. The story is made up of really akward soundless custscenes with awkward text not explaining much, and cut-out pictures of characters floating around. As I said earlier this game doesn't need a story, but they didn't really try much on delivering it. But heres the story anyways- A boy named Faust controls something called the "Mephistopheles", which allows him to bring anything to life (this explains you fighting hordes of machinery and lasers). Faust wants humanity completely raped and to be some sort of ruler. But a special group of ninjas called "Moon Divers" have gotten orders to save humanity and stop him.
Easy and fun for anyone. The game is very straght forward with jumping and atacking. Every character can unlock a large amount of special moves to use (you start with one, the rest are found in levels, kinda making it a free for all to see who gets it first). Once you start collecting these specials, you can equipt up to 4 at a time, using them during battle, (they do drain your magic meter though). The great part is the many variations of moves to be found, AOEs, blinding enemies, freezing, boost defense, projectiles, all great fun.
Your Characters get 1 point to use everytime they level up. This point could be put into HP, MP or Power. Out of the 4 characters their stats start out differently, but this doesn't stop you from building them the way you want, in the end they could also have the same magic attacks aswell, what really differs is in their atack speed. -From fastest to slowest, the slower swinging charactrs start with more attack power anyways- Hitori, Seyfert, Tolbi and Ourion.
The levels are nothing too new to a playformer. Run a long distance killing stuff, jump on some platforms, have a bottom-less pit somewhere and lasers. But they did do a good job cramming ridiculous amounts of enemies into some akward areas, actually making you think about how you will go on about your killing (the game definately gets harder every level, even with a full team). Only bad part is that sometimes the game feels like a repetitive grind, but like any game, you have to keep going to experince new hazards and monsters.
Teamwork in this game is neccesary in higher levels. Voice-chat is available but people don't use it. When prompted, teamates can use a special move together (if done at same time), and this pulls off a awesome magic move that you may not have. A problem with being on a team are stuborn people. If one teamate is falling behind, or if someone wants to go in a different direction, the furthest team member will be injured/ slowly be teleported in some instances ; extremely annoying. Also knowing when to use your special moves instead of spamming them saves the team alot. Perfect example is when my team ONLY passed the level because someone had the "freeze all enemies for a short time" move, and he used it perfectly everytime, without that it would have been 100% failure. Also when you die, you float around slowly being able to control your movement. You have 10 seconds for a teamate to "break the chains" which is slashing you until your free, if this doesn't happen, you die for reals and wait for respawn. Game is over when everyone is dead.
CONTROLS / MOVEMENT:
All respond perfectly fine. You only use one button to attack , and can hold it for a stronger charge atack. You have another button only use for special moves. Another one for jumping/double jumping. And a button for dashing/air dashing and another for crouching. Attack speeds differ but all characters run the same speed, which flows perfectly fine with the game. Besides running around swinging, you can atack while jumping, dashing and even can perform a sort- of aeriel dash down attack. Also to climb and hold onto ledges, you simply jump to it, and getting down or jumping to a lower level is holding down+ attack. The game is definately simple and can be jumped into and enjoyed by anyone.
Since the entire game is story-mode driven, playing alone sucks if you don't have a few other friends. Lukily they did a AWESOME job with the online lobbys, simply love it. The search engine is simple and detailed. When looking for a room, you can search for difficulty, the level range of players are what level they are playing on. It then displays the host name, # of players in room and level they are on. Like any online game there is lag, but it is rare (and I live in Hawaii, probly barely any lag for you people in the Mainland).
Are better than I expected. The game just looks like it was made by Square-Enix. Everything looks good, especially huge explosions and beams ; dazzling stuff. The game does a good job with a cold industrialized look being splashed with awesome lighting effects. What suprised me the most was the awesome amount of detail found in some levels. Also, they did a really good job with shadow effects in this game, wasn't expecting that much depth.
- No Real Story - Just some dude trying to wipe out humans, and your group of badass ninjas are gonna save the world, but who cares about a story in a $15 hack n slash? Just have some fun.
- Gameplay is simple fun- Kill stuff, level up, realize it atually does get dificult and enjoy a decent game. A leveling system with 4 characters fits in just right.
- Graphics fit well- The game looks really good for a cheap DLC.
- Controls are Easy- If your bad at this game, I don't know what to tell you
- Online is where it's at- Constantly finding games and as you get to higher levels, you find less dumb people, making the experience all that much better.
BUY IT! It's not expensive and has plenty of fun. 4 characters allows you to experiment with different builds and have different gamestyles at your disposal and finding loads of special moves to use adds more playtime.
Seen Oni before but aren't exactly sure how his combos and set-ups work? Heres a nice explanation video.
Many of us have seen gameplay of Oni in ssf4 AE, but may not know every move and how they work. This video displays all his normals, specials, super and ultra along with kickass music. The video also gives sweet combo tips and tricks.

Another great looking Wii game, that might end up another Japan-only release.
Nintendo released a short video for a new game, "Pandora's Tower". But that is about it, no real info besides a release date of May 26. Also it seems that they might have teamed up with Ganbarion to make the game (known for making several One-Piece games) The game looks extremely similiar to "The Last Story" a super epic JRPG that I got hyped for and never got any U.S release. Anyways, check out the video below and let us know what you think.
Update: iorilamia 4/5/11
"the game is centered on two characters, Ende and his friend Ceres.
The setting of the game is the Graecia continent, where in the kingdom of Elysium the harvest festival has begun. Ceres has been chosen to sing at the event, but as she takes the podium, beasts appear in the area.
In the ensuing confusion, Ende manages to find Ceres, but she's unconscious. She's about to be taken into custody by the army as a witness to the beast appearance. With the help of a merchant named Graiai, the two manage to escape to an isolated tower.
Ceres ends up being cursed following the beast attack. Ende learns that to clear the curse he must gather the flesh of beasts that live within the tower. He decides to try his hand at the tower."

Missed the sniper Figurine in the Helghast Edition? Heres your chance for an even better one, and whole new exclusive bonus!
New Bundle Pack announced today that has to be one of the most interesting and original ones. The Helghast Edition featured a bunch of cool stuff, 2 of them were a soundtrack of the games music and a Sniper Action figure that was partially cloaked. This was a one time thing, but they one-upped that. In the new bundle you get
- Fully Cloaked Sniper Figurine
- Copy of the Game
- MC Stahl's hip-hop album, throwing down the real talk of what it's like on Helgan
Check out the tracks for his album "Disease of Compliance and Subjugation"
“Working with MC Stahl has been a lifelong dream for me" said Guerrilla Merchandise Director Bob Elgas.
And for the second part of the bundle, a better version of the first sniper figurine. This one definately depicts the sniper class a lot better than the original figure.
So what are you waiting for? Head over to http://killzone.com and pre-order yours today!
What do you guys think of the new Pack? This is the third deal they have done, everytime it's something new. They are really pushing promotions for this game. Leave your comments below.

Producer and graphic designer of famous games like SF4 series, Onimusha and many MegaMans, Keiji Inafune has been at work since his Capcom leave.
The two companies are called Intercept and Comcept. They are both very small sites with some basic info, but it's heading in th right direction. Also both companies have a capital of 10 million Yen.
Intercept is his gaming company. The front page of the site states Intercept. Inc will challenge the game market, and that they make their games by "3 keywords" http://inter-cept.co.jp/
- Originality- Cannot be imitated
- Gravity- Power to pull people in
- Beyond the Age- Goes past our era of gaming
Comcept seems to be way more broad and covers some stuff that Intercept does. http://comcept.co.jp/company.html
Under the Company Tab this is what is listed as "Business"
- Consumer game planning, development and sales
- Online game planning, sales, management and distribution
- Mobile content planning, development, management and distribution
- Other entertainment content planning, development, management and distribution
- Character goods planning, development production, sales and rights management
- Books, music and video planning, production, sales and rights management
- Event planning and consulting
Wow, thats alot. Seems as if Intercept will be designing the games where Comcept does everything else around that with the marketing and managing. Any big Inafune fans here? Beig his own boss, it's going to be very interesting to see what his company creates. Especially with the 3 Goals of Intercept, hope he stays close to that.

Our first look at the upcoming co-op Resident Evil game, Operation Raccoon City.
Trailer finally released, and it doesn't show much. Honestly a bit bland but, what else could you do in a Zombie trailer? Front kick into headstomp followed by gas station explosion is cool though. Looks like alot of special forces running around owning shit but the graphics are a bit lacking. On the upside I do like all the mahem going down in the crowded streets, looks like sh*t went reaaaaaal bad. Check it out and leave a comment on what you think about this little reveal.

Previous Story with more info- http://gouki.com/Story/Details/how-about-a-4-player-resident-evil-team-based-shooter
PC MMO Free Realms has come to PSN and is now available for free download, but is it your type of game?
Free Realms is a MMO with many capabilities and activities to keep you busy. The game features Demolition Racing, character customization with classes, pets that poop coal, fighting monsters, mounts, building houses and lots more.
The only problem is that the game is extremely Disney-Esque, making it very unapealing to most mature gamers, which is a shame due to how much you can do in this game. You could treat it as a MMO and lvl up raiding dungeons, or you could be into Minecraft type of games and build houses, or just chill with your friends doing random crap. The game does feature voice chat and trophies though, so with the right friends it could be pretty entertaining.
And if you want more, the membership upgrade is optional, starting a $4.99 per month. Membership grants you unlimited access to all jobs, as well as premium content such as housing, trophies, exclusive items, and monthly members rewards. Whoopie.
The game sounded pretty interesting until I saw the trailer you are about to view below, uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/YahooGamesVideos
Anyone going to give this a try? A couple of my friends and I might try to see if we can make any fun out of it, if we can get past the visual Cheese, it should be loads of fun. Let us know what you think in a comment below.
