J-Stars Victory VS

J-Stars Victory VS +, the upcoming game published by Bandai Namco featuring characters taken from manga series published on the popular Shone Jump magazine, has received a new short gameplay video showcasing one of the better known characters included in the game.

The new video, which can be checked out on Bandai Namco’s official Facebook page, showcases Ichigo Kurosaki, main character of  the Bleach series, as he unleashes one of his more powerful special techniques. The video is rather short, but it’s definitely a good watch for fans of the character.

Another short J-Stars Victory VS + gameplay video has been made available online last week. The video showcased another incredibly popular character that will be included in the game, Son Goku from Dragon Ball. Another short gameplay video featuring Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece has been made available earlier this month, showcasing one of the powerful combat techniques the main character of the One Piece series will be able to use in the game.

J-Stars Victory VS + character roster is going to be incredibly varied, with several fan favorite characters such as the already mentioned Ichigo and Son Goku, Naruto, Monkey D. Luffy and others as well as some characters that are less known in the West. One of these characters, Kankichi Ryotsu from Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo, has been showcased in a gameplay video made available last month alongside Gon Freecs, main character of the Hunter X Hunter series. Even though not many know Kankichi in the West, he is actually quite popular in Japan, with Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo being one of the longest running and best selling manga series ever released.

J-Stars Victory VS + will be released on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on June 26th in Europe. The game will be made available in North America a few days later, on June 30th.

There hasn’t been much buzz lately about any new acquisitions in the world of video game intellectual property. According to a recent report, Sony is currently engaged in discussions with a well-funded partner to potentially acquire the renowned film studio Paramount, along with all the exciting possibilities that come with such a merger.

As reported in the New York Times (thanks, ResetEra), Sony Picture Entertainment is reportedly in discussions with Apollo Global Management, an investment firm, as per two sources familiar with the matter. In the past, Apollo had made an offer to acquire Paramount for a minimum of $26 billion, but their bid was ultimately turned down.

The terms of the joint bid are currently under discussion, and there is a chance that the two parties may decide against making a formal offer. Unnamed sources have revealed that Paramount is currently in exclusive discussions with Skydance, preventing any official offer from being made at this time. Investor opposition to the recent deal that Skydance brought seems to have been significant.

The potential impact of such an acquisition is immense. First and foremost, it would introduce adaptations of Sonic and Halo into the expanding media empire of the PlayStation platform holder. Following the announcement, Paramount’s stock experienced a significant 11% surge in after-hours trading.

In the ongoing conflict against the Automaton invasion fleet, the Helldivers 2 players have successfully halted their advance. However, the situation has now reached a tiresome stalemate. Yet again, the machines refuse to take a break from their relentless pursuit of progress, with reports emerging of the Factory Striders being deployed in record-breaking quantities.

There have been reports of alleged machines that were supposedly encountered during Operation Swift Disassembly, which was just the beginning of a larger campaign. However, these accounts should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are unverified and seem to be more on the imaginative side. Factory Striders have gained a reputation as formidable weapons platforms that can produce more Automatons while enduring significant damage. If the machines are able to withstand such a relentless assault, it will be necessary to develop innovative strategies.

Have you come across groups of Factory Striders in Helldivers 2? Which strategies are proving to be the most effective in taking down these armored brutes? The Orbital Railcannon Strike will prove to be a valuable asset in the comments section below.

Todd Howard affirms that the timeline of the Fallout series is coherent and well-constructed

The recent release of Amazon’s adaptation of Fallout has ignited a renewed interest in the series and brought attention to the captivating alternate history that forms its foundation. Fans have expressed concern that the TV show’s events might be at odds with the plot of the Obsidian Entertainment video game New Vegas. Warning: Spoilers ahead for New Vegas and Amazon’s show!

Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard and Fallout TV executive producer Jonathan Nolan recently sat down with IGN to discuss the timeline. Howard was taken aback when showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet presented him with the surprising concept of obliterating Shady Sands, the bustling capital of the New California Republic, in the aftermath of the events in New Vegas. Howard eventually warmed up to the idea: “After discussing it, we realized that this could be a significant story moment that many things hinge upon.”

It seems that they had to make some tough decisions to ensure everything fell into place, but Howard emphasizes the importance of preserving the integrity of the Fallout timeline: “We take great care with the timeline. There seems to be some confusion in certain areas. However, all the events from the previous games, including New Vegas, did occur. We take great caution in that matter. We’re really pushing the limits here, but the explosions occur right after the events of New Vegas.

What are your thoughts on this? Is it up to par? Even though it may not have a significant impact on the overall quality of the games or show, it is comforting to know that those in charge are paying attention. We value your feedback and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.
