Total War: Warhammer trailer is too epic for its own good

Total War: Warhammer just received its first official trailer and it’s totally epic! So much so actually, that I’m starting to get a bit concerned. You see, I’m a huge Warhammer fan and although I much rather prefer the 40K universe, I’m willing to also give the fantasy titles a chance every now and again. Problem is, this franchise has been plummeting in recent years and let’s face it, there hasn’t been a decent Warhammer game in ages. Could the latest installment in the Total War series change all that? The trailer is certainly very pretty, but do trailers even mean anything nowadays? I mean, have many bad games with great trailers do you know? More than a few I bet.

As you can probably tell by now, I’m both skeptical and excited when it comes to this game. I’m been waiting for a good Warhamer 40K game for so long that I’m now willing to play anything with the Warhammer label on it hoping that maybe, just maybe, I’ll finally come across a good title. No luck in recent years. In any case, there won’t be any Space Marines here, but this game still looks like it could be a lot of fun regardless. I’m not saying that because of the CGI trailer (which is likely not representative of the final product), but because the Total War series has always provided quality real-time strategy games. The Total War series was all about history in the past, but now it looks like the folks over at Creative Assembly want to try their hand at fantasy as well. This is certainly a bold move and I’m very curious to see what comes out of it.

According to Creative Assembly, Total War: Warhammer will offer “war on a scale as yet unimagined,” a feature that will surely please both veterans and newcomers alike. Not a whole lot else remains to be said at this time since the game doesn’t have a release date and we haven’t seen any in-game footage either. However, rest assured that we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one, so stay tuned for more news and updates as they arrive.

Feeling a bit buzzed The Last of Us Pedro Pascal from HBO wins SAG Award

Pedro Pascal may have indulged in a few too many Dark ‘n’ Stormy’s before the 2024 SAG Awards, where he clinched the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Joel Miller in the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us. Appearing slightly intoxicated, the actor portraying Joel confidently stepped onto the stage and stated, “This is incorrect for several reasons. I’ve had a few drinks. I believed I could become intoxicated. Thanks, HBO! Oh boy, I feel a bit embarrassed, but I really appreciate this.”

Pascal faced tough competition from Succession actors Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and Matthew MacFadyen, along with The Morning Show’s Billy Crudup. He emerged victorious for the award and, seemingly oblivious to his defeated competitors, remarked:

“I’ve been in the union since 1999, so this is a tremendous honor. “We’re on Netflix,” Pascal noted, mentioning the streaming platform’s position on censorship. “I might experience a surge of anxiety and decide to depart.” Pascal expressed gratitude to showrunner Craig Mazin, Naughty Dog head Neill Druckmann, colleagues, and production staff for their valuable contributions.

REYNATIS appears as a rugged yet strangely attractive action RPG for PS5 and PS4

It’s unfair to criticize the time it takes to develop PS5 and PS4 games, only to then judge REYNATIS for appearing a bit messy. Developers are investing significant sums in creating high-budget games nowadays, so maybe it’s about time we adjust our expectations and embrace slightly less polished releases instead.

This introduction sets the stage for FuRyu’s latest game, which could easily fit in as a late-gen launch on the PS3, but that doesn’t take away from its potential for enjoyment. A team of former Square Enix employees created this game, which explores a power struggle among magicians in Shibuya. Some aim to flaunt their abilities, while others prefer to keep them hidden.

The setting is truly remarkable; having visited Shibuya, it captures the essence of the iconic location perfectly. The combat appears solid, but there are performance issues to address, especially with the Japanese release scheduled for July 25th. Although there has been no official announcement regarding a Western release, we anticipate that a publisher will likely pick it up later this year.

Leaked footage of LittleBigPlanet Hub on PS3 brings a nostalgic wave

Once upon a time, Sony revealed Little Big Planet HUB, a free-to-play exclusive for the PS3 available on the PS Store. It seems that the game will merge all the content from LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2, giving fans the opportunity to play, create, and share without any cost. The concept was ambitious, which likely made the platform holder hesitant.

It is common knowledge that the planned release in August 2013 never materialized, with many speculating that it evolved into Little Big Planet 3. More than a decade later, footage from a beta version of LittleBigPlanet Hub has surfaced after an old NDA expired.

There is not much that is unexpected here: the gameplay resembles LittleBigPlanet, featuring floaty physics, prize bubbles, and narration by Stephen Fry. It’s intriguing to come across cancelled titles such as this one. A free-to-play version of LittleBigPlanet could potentially thrive in today’s landscape of creative live services similar to Roblox and Minecraft.
