Deep Silver just announced that Saints Row IV, “the ball-busting next chapter in the Saints Row franchise, is starting a party in your pants this Fall.” It is being developed by Volition, and will launch on current-gen consoles and PC on August 20, 2013, in North America and August 23, 2013, in the rest of the world.
Hit the jump for more info and the teaser trailer!!
Lara Croft, Tomb Raider.
I’ve seen both of the movies, but I still don’t really know much about her. She’s from a wealthy British family; she knows a hell of a lot about anthropology and archaeology (like me!), and she kicks some serious ass.
Oh, and she looks really good in shorts. Really good.
And after watching my boyfriend, Clint, beat the recently released Lara Croft game, that’s still pretty much all I know about her.
But thanks to the movies, and from what I’ve learned from osmosis through the years, I know that Lara is a little bit like Indiana Jones, with the whole “that belongs in a museum” mentality. I haven’t played any of the games, and I didn’t have any previous knowledge about what the games are like, so I expected that the new game would be a treasure-hunt. Just my best guess based on what I knew.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, a heart-warming tale of a young boy named Oliver who embarks on a journey into a parallel world in an attempt to bring his mother back from the dead. Along the way, Oliver makes new friends and adopts many of the wonderful creatures that inhabit the world, raising them to battle other creatures on his behalf as he takes on formidable enemies. Developed by LEVEL-5 alongside Studio Ghibli, the legendary animation studio, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch combines beautiful animated visuals, masterful storytelling and a sweeping score into an epic role-playing adventure like no other.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is the latest Japanese-RPG from game developer LEVEL-5 (Dark Cloud, Dragon Quest VIII, Professor Layton) and an anime studio called Studio Ghibli. This game is an HD remake of Ni no Kuni, a Nintendo DS game that was exclusively released in Japan in 2010 .
I’ve played through Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch completely and my experience with this game is one that’ll remember for a long time! Almost everything is perfectly done and even if there are a few minor hiccups through the adventure, this game is definitively one of the top PS3 JRPGs!
What is Girlfriend Review? Well, it’s just that. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while but never really had the opportunity, until now.
The basic idea behind this new feature is that while I’m playing my games, my girlfriend is typically there through the majority of the campaign (seeing as how she’s over at my place almost every day). Though she’s usually doing her own thing: writing a novel or screenplay, reading a book, or even catching up on her TV shows via Hulu on her iPad.
GungHo Online Entertainment has decided to release six new PSOne games that never made it outside of Japan so that PS3 owners can purchase them on the SEN. There is one game for every type of gamer, and you can read on for a brief description of each one:
Welcome back to the second week in big game releases. God of War: Ascension is on the shelves today, though I’ve yet to give it a go. To be honest I’m staring at the main menu of the game as I type this.
We have a decent amount of news this week despite not a lot happening. Hopefully when GDC comes around later this month we’ll have some good stories to talk about.
Tune in to catch MissXya, Isli and I discuss the week in games as well as my spoiler free impressions of Tomb Raider, having just beaten it. Did you beat the game? How did you enjoy it? Leave your comments below!

DICE and EA are rumored to be revealing Battlefield 4 on Mach 26 at an invite-only event held during this year’s Game Developer’s Conference. How does Ace know this magical news? Well, obviously I was invited…or IGN shared the invite they received for the event. Oh, and it’s obviously a Battlefield thing(Sorry SimCity fans):
