Spider-Man And More Confirmed For Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite Roster

Just Push Start - Thu, 07/20/2017 - 21:38
Today at the San Diego Comic Con event, more characters were announced for the roster of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite. Many favorites are returning from previous games. The Marvel vs. Capcom Facebook page announced: “Spider-Man, Gamora, Nemesis, Frank West & Haggar were confirmed as playable characters in today’s Marvel Games panel – all-new gameplay trailer coming Friday at 8am Pacific!” While a proper trailer is being shared tomorrow, off-screen footage has been posted already. Most of the characters appear to look the same as they did in MvC3. You can check out the footage below. The new level does show us that MODOK might just be a background character. He can be seen sitting on his throne. It’s hard to miss him because he’s right there in the middle of the screen. Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is out this September for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The First Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy DLC Has Been Released

Just Push Start - Thu, 07/20/2017 - 21:22
As announced at the San Diego Comic Con event, Vicarious Visions revealed the first free DLC level you can get for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. It’s a level that was cut from the original game. The free level in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is none other than Stormy Ascent. The reason the level was cut back in the day was because it was way too hard. It was still on the disc, but it was hidden away not meant to be playable. The level is available to download from now until the next 30 days (August 19th). Presumably after that, it might be paid DLC so get it now when it’s free. Vicarious Visions says that the reason they added the level back in is thanks to games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Hard games are fashionable nowadays so they wanted to give players an extra challenge.

Learn About the 4 Fighting Styles in Yakuza Kiwami

gamrFeed - Thu, 07/20/2017 - 18:58

Sega has released a new trailer for Yakuza Kiwami that teaches the four fighting styles in the game.

View it below:


Here is an overview:

Learn about four fighting styles that Kazuma Kiryu can unleash and all the alluring vices Kamurocho has to offer in Yakuza Kiwami! 

Being retold in Kiwami is the nascent character arc for Yakuza - the game begins with series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu getting sent to prison for the murder of his family patriarch (which he didn't commit). To make matters worse, during the 10 years of his imprisonment, not only does Kiryu's clan expel him from the yakuza, but ¥10 billion (~$100 million) goes missing from the clan treasury. Worse yet, Kiryu's childhood sweetheart is also nowhere to be found, and with the entirety of the Japanese underworld on the hunt for the missing cash, Kiryu is all but lost until he finds the orphan girl Haruka, searching for her aunt who shares the same name as Kiryu's missing love. What follows from there is a web of betrayal, underworld politics, and redemption as nothing will stop Kiryu from regaining his honor. 

Features: 

  • A Family Patriarch's Ransom of New Content - “Kiwami” literally translates to “extreme,” and the game was named that for good reason. Not just a simple graphical upgrade, Kiwami adds nearly 30 minutes of cutscenes alone, providing all-new insight into the game's plot and creating common threads with series prequel Yakuza 0. There's also added distractions (Pocket Circuit car racing, MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties, new hostesses, and more), side quests, combat updates, re-recorded Japanese dialogue, and more to bring the original Yakuza game into the latest console generation.
  • A Place for Newcomers and Veterans - Yakuza Kiwami is the ultimate bridge in the series: newcomers or those whose Yakuza experience started with Yakuza 0 will have familiar, exacting controls, top-notch SEGA localization, and a solid starting point for entering the Yakuza franchise fresh. Veterans will experience a familiar Kamurocho and plot, but with new levels of story depth and graphical polish.
  • But it was me! Majima! - Completely new to Kiwami is the "Majima Everywhere" system, where the series' deranged, one-eyed maniac will constantly surprise and challenge Kiryu to combat when he least expects it. We're talking "popping out of a goofy costume" levels of surprise, so players must stay on their toes and be ready to defend themselves from Kiryu's chief rival.
  • Extreme Revitalization - Kiwami is rebuilt from the ground up with all new HD assets, exclusive Japanese voice audio re-recorded by the series cast, and more; optimized for the PlayStation 4 and running in 1080p/60fps. And following suit with SEGA's commitment to the Yakuza series, the game will release in both physical and digital formats in the west.

A life-long and avid gamer, William D'Angelo was first introduced to VGChartz in 2007. After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012.
