Something incredible has been in the works for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fans!

Revealed recently at a hands on demo, the company Bandai Namco showed off a playable version of their JoJo’s Battle Royale Arcade setups.  Each arcade cabinet is modular for another cabinet to hook up to it.  So you could have your very own JoJo’s Battle Royale Arcade set up for 4-30 people!  Or you can fly out to Japan and play this in their arcades.  The first video is gameplay uploaded from the event from YouTube Channel: Akiba-Ninja.  Back to back wins!  Total domination!

In the video below gameplay from the event begins and with the spectator/commentator mode you get a nice tour of what the game is like and the different characters.  The fact that so much time and effort has gone into this Arcade Machine is incredible to me.  I definitely see it getting a port to consoles and PC.  Not because it’s JoJo’s, but because it’s a battle royale, there’s enough fanbase for that genre and then you add in JoJo’s name and it’s a no brainer.

GoukiJones, FnJimmy, and BatRastered got to play the multiplayer demo of Aliens Colonial Marines at E3 2012. Who's that playing as the Xenomorphs against them? Oh, that's just the Gearbox dev and test teams.

Yeah, we were a little disappointed when we were told that we wouldn't get to play as the Xenomorphs in the demo, as you can see in the video they play third person, and they have the ability to see in the dark and through walls, basically they always know where you are. The balance is achieved by the fact that they have to get close to attack, so the Xeno's are basically playing a more stealth based game while the Marines play a more traditional FPS.

Watch out for the Crusher!

We did get to play as the Marines however, and that was still fun. There are a couple of different classes to choose from (your basic shotgunner, machine-gunner, and assault rifle based classes) each with a secondary fire ability (the pulse rifle has a undermount grenade launcher for instance). You could also find powerful tools in the map, such as the smart gun that tracks alien movement while you shoot. I think that's how FnJimmy got most of his kills, how else do you explain him going 10-2 against the dev team? You can pull out the iconic motion tracker at any time but beware, this lowers your weapon and leaves you vulnerable to attack! You'll quickly learn to stay with your teammates or get singled out and die when an alien grabs you from behind. In this sense, the Marines gameplay could be compared with the L4D series more so than a Halo or CoD type game. Even better, if you pre-order the game, you can play as the Marines from Aliens (Hudson, Hicks, Apone, and Drake)... Game over man!

We only got to play Team Death Match, but we were told to expect several other modes when the game ships in February 2013. Hyped!

E3 2011 Exclusive: Team Gouki checked out Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. While BatRastered grills the PR Jimmy, GoukiJones raips on screen. Later FnJimmy offers his take as well. Don't be a Jimmy!

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a cheap game Jimmy, $40 bucks out the gate. We might have a serious deal of fun here. 3 player online co-op, 4 different suits to use and upgrade, tons of bugs and aliens to shoot and destructible environments. Developed by Vicious Cycle Software out of North Carolina, EDF could be their best game yet. Of course "could be" is the key word there since I haven't actually played the final product. I am hype.

I had fun while playing the demo. You can check out my killin' bugs and dropping buildings in the video below, while BatRastered asks as many questions as he can.

E3 2011 quick take: Resistance 3 in 3D

By: BatRastered Jun 21, 2011 | 5 Comments

I got a chance to play Resistance 3 at Sony's E3 2011 booth, here's my take.

FnJimmy and I were waiting in line to play some Resistance 3 at Sony's booth. We thought we were going to play some multiplayer. Turns out we were playing the campaign even though they had the TVs set up side by side like the do for all their MP demos (like Uncharted and Starhawk). The Sony rep points me at the second TV in the row, lucky me, I got the one with 3D enabled. I put the goggles on over my glasses, not particularly comfortable, but not too bad until I also try to put the headphones on, now I've got three things on my ears.

Anyway the game controlled and felt like I expected, complete with the Sony R1 instead of trigger to fire that I've come to hate and expect in every exclusive PS3 game. (Seriously, WTF?) 

I don't know if something was wrong with the 3D goggles (low battery?) or if all the E3 lights and flashes were interfering with the signal, but I had a bunch of cross talk, to the point that I had two reticules to aim through which obviously made targeting a bit of a trick. I wasn't sure if I should aim at the left, right, or split the difference. By the end of the demo... well I didn't stay for the end of the demo, I just quit after about 5 minutes as I did not want to spend the rest of my day at E3 with a splitting (see what I did there) headache.

Resistance seems like an above-average FPS in a market flooded with them, so I'm not super hyped about it (especially given the PS3 exclusive controls, I like my FPS on the 360).  I'm totally not excited for 3D to come to my house any time soon.

Resistance 3 ships September 6, 2011 for the PS3.
