Remember those awesome outfits of the Palicos in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate? Apparently, fans can look forward for more unique costumes in Monster Hunter X as Capcom announced that they will have collaboration with Square Enix and Capcom. Sometime this month, fans can look forward to download the Mega Man costume for the Palicoes that uses several weapons including Guts Man’s “Super Arm,” Wood Man’s “Leaf Shield,” Top Man’s “Top Spin,” Dust Man’s “Dust Cleaner,” Gravity Man’s “Gravity Hold” and Flame Man’s “Flame Blast”. On January 15, Capcom will then be distributing the unique costume and weapon from Square Enix’s Final Fantasy. As always, expect a quest to come with it. Here’s the trailer of the Mega Man costume in Monster Hunter X.

Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits coming to PS4 this week

Just Push Start - Mon, 01/11/2016 - 07:38
When the PlayStation Store updates this Tuesday, January 12, JRPG gamers have something to look forward to as Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits is coming to PS4. Unfortunately, the price hasn’t been revealed but we’re expecting it to be around $14.99. For years, the Humans and the Deimos have been at war in their struggle to capture the Great Spirit Stones. To the Humans, the stones represent a magical source of power and light. To the Deimos, the stones are the viable force behind their spell-casting abilities. But fate is about to place the future of both races in the hands of two men. Now Sony, hopefully you’ll release Wild Arms 3 or Dark Cloud 2 next week.

Kotaku - Mon, 01/11/2016 - 07:23

David Bowie, who just died of cancer aged 69, had an incalculable impact on pop culture throughout his shape-shifting career. But perhaps more than any other musician, he also had a tremendous impact on science fiction. He changed the way we thought about the alien, the uncanny, and the familiar.

If Video Games Have Souls, This Kei Car Racing Simulator Captured Mine

Kotaku - Mon, 01/11/2016 - 03:45

While it’s true that I’m not much of a video gamer, I have clearly found the classic Super Famicom (Super NES) game for me: Kat’s Run Zen-Nippon K Car Senshuken. Not only is it named after me, and involves kei cars I want and/or have owned, but it even has a joke from my favorite anime in the opening segment!


Your 2016 Smite World Champions Are Not These Guys

Kotaku - Mon, 01/11/2016 - 03:44

These five gentlemen, collectively known as team Enemy, clawed their way into the 2016 Smite World Championship grand finals only to lose three straight games to Europe’s Epsilon, letting all of North America down. As punishment, they only get $230,000. I blame myself.

Best Xbox 360 Game of 2015

gamrFeed - Mon, 01/11/2016 - 01:34

The Xbox 360 is now the grand old age of 10 but that hasn’t prevented developers and publishers from continuing to support the aging beast. And who’s to blame them? With an install base of over 85 million consoles the Xbox 360 still has a sizeable market for publishers to appeal to, even if most of its more active userbase has migrated to the new, current generation. Here's the best of what the Xbox 360 had to offer in 2015.

The Nominees:

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Rise of the Tomb Raider 

Lego Dimensions

Battlefield Hardline


And the Winner is...

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Community's Choice - Rise of the Tomb Raider (53% of the votes)

This could well be the final year that the Xbox 360 finds itself represented in our Game of the Year Awards, but what a way to go out - playing host to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Kojima's final Metal Gear Solid masterpiece and one of the best games on the Xbox 360.
