Transformers: Devastation is a Transformers game whose time has come, mainly because it brings the franchise back to what made it so great in the first place: the larger-than-life, bold, colorful characters of G1 and their personalities. Sure, the fact that it comes to us from PlatinumGames, one of the leaders in hyper-stylized third-person combat certainly helps. Over the weeks since its announcement at E3, details have been slow to trickle out, and we’ve been consuming these details silently, with anticipation for what comes next while we patiently await the opportunity to grab a controller and take command of our favorite Autobots as we wage our battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons.
In the meantime, we’ve had the pleasure to chat with Game Director Kenji Saito at PlatinumGames Inc. and Lead Producer Robert Conkey at Activision, who both graciously took the time to answer our questions about the game. Here’s our interview!
Forza Motorsport 6 is set to cross the finish line on Xbox One September 15. The game is the latest in a longstanding franchise that sets the bar for visual fidelity and authenticity in its digital recreation of vehicles. In advance of this, we’re treated to a fun trailer that has us completely amped for the game. It takes us through a brief history of classic racing titles, complete with a chiptune rendition of Electric Six‘s dance/rock hit, “Danger! High Voltage,” before bringing us to current-day visuals along with the totally bangin’ chorus to the song. Considering we listen to Electric Six every time we drive, this hits us right the feels, man.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve often lamented the fact that there aren’t more side-scrolling pixel art games about muscle-bound fish with memory problems. We’ve got some good news for you, though: Shütshimi is here to save us all. It’s a randomized side-scrolling shooter from the brains at Choice Provisions, whose track record speaks for itself. Trust us when we tell you that you will enjoy Shütshimi in ways you thought not possible.
News that a game like Shütshimi exists can be a lot to take in, but we’re making it easy on you. We’re giving away a bunch of digital downloads for the game for both Steam and PS4. HOW DO YOU ENTER TO WIN? It’s easy. See that little contest widget right below this post? Follow the simple instructions and you’ll be on your merry way.
Fans of fast-paced frenetic action are in for a treat. Below are some additional details on the game.
