Mario and Rayman's Rabbids Team Up

Let's talk about two popular franchises that we didn't see coming together to create tactical turn-based combat game. Those two franchises are Mario and Rayman's Rabbids. I'm going to be honest, I would have thought a collaboration would be in the team party game arena, but Nintendo and Ubisoft has surprised us all with something that actually not only looks awesome, but definitely fits in a wider target audience demographic. This is the type of game that is going to do well on the Nintendo Switch, and for those out there who are going to be grabbing this game up, you're not going to have to wait long. The release is scheduled for August 29th.

There is a rumor that Amiibos might be involved with the game to unlock potential game changing, or helping items/characters, but I haven't found anything concrete to really support this. All I know is that this might REALLY be good. Even though I don't own a Switch, I can't wait to play this game.

Ni No Kuni II has a Release Date

Any Studio Ghibli fans probably remember the first Ni No Kuni, a game which had that Ghibli feel and look, and actually had the animated sequences created by the studio, itself. Well it would appear that after 2 years we are finally getting a release date for the game. Now the bad news is that Studio Ghibli isn't involved with this game, however the Level-5 has reportedly learned a lot while working with the studio and will be using their past experience to help make this game be on par with the first game.

This game is set to be released on November 10th of this month for both PC and PlayStation 4. Now of course the question has to be asked, if it is being released for PC, why not XBOX One now that they share a common connection. Our guess is that the contract was written in such a way that it wasn't allowed. So sadly the XBOX One crowd will miss out on this game.

Update: Beyond Good and Evil 2

Well it would appear that after 9 years of waiting we have finally got an update. The update is a new trailer, and a little more information on what is going on in the game. The game, though labeled BGE2, is really a game in which Jade (the main character of the first game) hasn't been born. You will be part of a group trying to find freedom in the universe. 

Now of course, for those who played the original, which seems like decades ago, you might be in a nervous state of joy. There's the fact that this game might actually be coming out now, but there's also a little bit of pain in the pit of our stomachs because Jade isn't going to be a part of the second game. There's also a couple of questions that I have to be asked. 

  1. What's the combat system going to be like?
  2. What kind of crafts are we going to be playing around with?
  3. Will there be races?
  4. Will the photography piece of the game still exist?

Here's the thing I ,personally, am on a wave of nostalgia trying to remember every little bit of the first game, and when I compare what I remember to the trailer, I don't know I just hope it stays true to it's roots and doesn't end up being a sequel only by name.

Now here's the part that will pain us the most:

  • There is no release date (so this could all be a smoke screen)
  • There is no mention of platforms

BioWare Has New IP, Anthem

BioWare has revealed their latest shared-world action-RPG, Anthem. In this game you will be teaming up with friends as Freelancers. There are several different suits of super-human abilities that you can choose from. I have to say on first look it sort of reminds me a little bit of Destiny, but with a little more RPG and customization to the mix. There also seems to be a dash of Defiance in there, but that could just be me.

For those hoping to find this on your platform of choice, EA has announced that this game is coming to the PC, PlayStation 4, and the XBOX One. So I think most of us are good getting this game on our preferred platform, and according to EA this is going to be released Fall of 2018. 

Now the one thing that I'm curious about and perhaps a little hesitant about is that this game seems to put HEAVY emphasis on the co-op play. So what happens if you don't have anyone to co-op with? Is there a bot system in place, or are you going to have to be forced into entering a potentially toxic relationship to enter parts or all of the game?

BBC Announces Idris Elba is Coming Back as Luther

I don't know how many of you out there have watched this series, or how many of you are fans of the series, but this is beyond exciting for me. This was one of those series where I got hooked and couldn't let go, and then the show was potentially done after the fourth season. Sure there was some closure, but there were still questions to be had. Well it has been confirmed that the show is coming back and the filming will start in 2018. 

So there is still some time before we hear anything, but I'm sure this will continue to be that dark, gritty, twisted show that I've grown to love. The one thing I do hope is that one of the characters that truly kept Luther on his toes through most of the series, Alice, comes back... PLEASE let her be back to add that extra layer of complexity to the story.
