Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Gives You Lots Of Options For Dancing Like An IdiotWed, 26 Oct 2016 20:32:00 GMT

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is full of specific references to the show and movies in all sorts of different ways. Among the best of its callouts are its many animations, which you can pull up while in the game's lobby. You will find Yamcha's famous death pose, almost every ridiculous pose from the Ginyu force, and my personal favorite, Vegeta's bingo dance from Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

We'll have our full review of the game ready soon, but in the meantime, here are some of the game's assorted absurd referential poses and dances.

RPG Grind Time – Five RPGs You May Have Missed This YearWed, 26 Oct 2016 20:00:00 GMT

It’s hard to believe we’re heading into the final two months of the year, but here we are with the final RPG releases for 2016 trickling out. World of Final Fantasy just launched this week, which I need to spend more time with before I can offer up any thoughts, but Joe Juba really liked it. As we head into November, the next big RPG is Final Fantasy XV, which will be important as it will dictate the franchise’s future for better or worse. Almost all of the RPGs for 2016 have already hit, which got me thinking about which ones are essential. I decided to make a list of some of the best RPGs that you may have missed this year. Maybe you can knock one out before Final Fantasy XV launches. 

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine (PS4, Xbox One, PC

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a massive game, but CD Projekt Red just couldn't resist giving us more Geralt via two expansions. Blood and Wine is his last hurrah, but it's understandable if you were still playing Witcher 3 or its other expansion Hearts of Stone when it launched, or even needed a break from The Witcher's bleak world for a while. However, if you didn't play it, you should rectify that at some point. Blood Wine captures all the series' trademarks: challenging battles, tough choices, and unexpected consequences, while taking us interesting places, such as the wine-filled region of Toussaint and a twisted fairytale land, offering around 30 hours of content. To find out more, you can read my review here.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE (Wii U)

This zany SMT and Fire Emblem crossover may not be what you expected, but it's a ton of fun nonetheless. The game taps into Japanese culture and its pop idol scene, tasking you with solving the mystery behind mysterious baddies named Mirages stealing people's creative energy. Every battle becomes a performance where you take the stage and damage enemies with songs in elaborate costumes. All the dungeons have their own fun themes such as fashion and TV programming. You also visit popular places in Tokyo like Shibuya and Harajuku . Not to mention a battle system where you build up combos by triggering enemy weaknesses is flat-out exciting, especially watching your combos grow to into the double digits. If you're looking for something more lighthearted and enjoy Atlus' battle systems and character moments, you should check it out. You can read my review here.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (3DS

I loved Shin Megami Tensei IV, but this follow-up is even better. Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is in the same setting as its predecessor, but has a new cast and story that crisscrosses with the first game. You can view it as an alternate ending or tale to SMT IV, but this one is even more intriguing, if not at sometimes just plain bizarre. Everything you love about SMT is here, such as demon recruitment and fusion, philosophical conundrums about humanity, and flavorful bosses. For more, you can check out Daniel Tack's review

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II (PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita)

First off, if you haven't played the Trails of Cold Steel series, you need to fix that. Falcom may not have the budget to make the best graphics, but it more than makes up for it with the detail it puts into every interaction. I love how NPCs remember what you've done for them and reference it in conversations. Trails of Cold Steel II picks up shortly after where the last game left off and is jam-packed with twists and shocking revelations. It has top-notch characters, challenging fights, and an intriguing political story. The series reminds me of a cross between Suikoden's complicated politics and Persona's social systems. In Cold Steel II, you recruit former students for your fight and get to know the members of Class VII even better. This entry also brings more depth to the already fantastic turn-based battle system with an overdrive options that allows you restore your health and act in three consecutive turns. For more, you can read my review.   

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Conquest (3DS)

If you're a fan of strategy/RPGs, Fire Emblem Fates is a no-brainer. I'm a bigger fan of its predecessor, Fire Emblem Awakening, for the better character relationships, but Fates still captures the fun of the series wonderfully. I especially enjoyed the new My Castle mechanic, which lets you build up your own headquarters, take on other players' castles, and gives you a place to gather your allies and build up relationships. Fates launched with two different versions, so you can see the story from different perspectives and experience a different level of challenge. Birthright is more for beginners, while Conquest is for veterans seeking more of a challenge since you can't grind for experience on free maps and it requires more resource management. I recommend getting both games if you're a diehard fan, but if you can only get one, keep the difficulty in mind (although people tend to find Conquest a tad better than Birthright). If you've only played one, now might be the perfect time to dive into the other. For more, you can read Javy Gwaltney's reviews on Birthright and Conquest

What do you think are some of the best RPGs this year that people shouldn't miss? Post your thoughts in the comments below!

Licensed Third-Party Pro Controllers Coming To PlayStation 4Wed, 26 Oct 2016 19:29:00 GMT

Despite Mark Cerny, lead system architect of the PS4, stating Sony won't be selling a pro controller, the PS4 is getting two licensed third-party pro controllers. Razer and Nacon are both developing elite PS4 controllers set to be released this holiday season for a yet-to-be-revealed price.

The Razer Raiju (above) has been designed with "advanced controller customization and ergonomics" in mind. It includes:

  • Two extra bumpers and two extra detachable triggers
  • Built-in control panel on the front of the controller
  • Trigger-stop switches and hair trigger mode for ultra-fast trigger responses
  • Two custom profiles which you can instantly switch between and modify
  • 3.5mm headset jack and dedicated headset volume and mic mute controls
  • Detachable analog stick rubber caps which provide extra grip during intense gaming sessions
  • Compatibility with all PS4 systems via the braided 3m-long USB cable – detachable for easy storage

The Nacon Revolution (above) was designed for a "wide range of their gameplay needs." It includes:

  • 46° amplitude dual analogue sticks, enhanced with innovative firmware for advanced eSports accuracy and reach
  • Four extra shortcut buttons
  • Eight-way directional pad
  • Four custom profiles – all configurable via the companion PC application, enabling players to: re-map buttons, assign macros to the four shortcut controls and adjust analog and trigger sensitivity
  • Two internal compartments with six additional weights – for a tailored balance and feel
  • Compatibility with all PS4 systems via the 3m-long secure connection USB cable – detachable for easy storage

The controllers are listed for European release, but Razer is an American company, making release in North America likely. While not as refined as these elite controllers, the DualShock 4 recently saw a small upgrade, which you can read more about here.

Our Take
While it's interesting that Sony isn't developing an official elite controller themselves, it's good that someone is. The Xbox Elite Controller has been met with positive reviews – even placing very highly on Game Informer's list of best controllers in the most recent issue. It's nice that Sony is giving hardcore players an alternative to the standard DualShock 4 even though the quality of these controllers remains to be seen.

Creators Update Bringing Better Broadcasting, Audio Improvements, And Tournaments To Windows 10 GamingWed, 26 Oct 2016 19:04:00 GMT

The Creators Update, which adds a number of new features to Windows 10, is coming this spring, and with it come a few goodies for Windows gaming.

Game broadcasting is getting a big improvement with the inclusion of Beam. Beam is popular interactive live streaming software, and it will be integrated directly into Windows 10 gaming. A quick key press will bring up a bar, which has a number of buttons built-in, like 'start broadcast,' which will alert your followers you are streaming. It will also place a small window on screen showing your stream and your chat window.

Custom tournaments are also coming to Windows 10. Players will be able to pick games, set tournament types and styles, set the time the tournament will be taking place, and send out invites all from one window. It will also track all the affiliated stats of the tournament for you. Where applicable, Xbox One players and Windows 10 players will be able to participate in tournaments together. Microsoft used Killer Instinct as an example on stage at its Windows 10 Event.

Finally, Microsoft said on stage, "Bit Stream audio passthrough including Dolby Atmos support is coming with the Creators Update to Blu-Rays on Xbox One S," which is good news for the audiophiles out there.

For more from today's Microsoft's Windows 10 Event, head here for its VR announcement.

[Source: Microsoft]


Our Take
All these features are good inclusions. The audio announcement doesn't mean much to me (I'm happy with my lame old sound bar), but I can't help but feel like its a small jab at Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro, which has significantly de-prioritized Blu-Ray compatibility and 4K movies for its next console.
