Multiplayer

Tokyo Game Show always has room for some surprises. One of them is the pleasant trailer that gives us an insight on the competitive aspect of Gran Turismo: Sport. Sony Interactive Entertainment, alongside Polyphonic showed more about the multiplayer. Which is a 4-player competitive mode.

Considering that the show took place in Japan, it’s only fair to have the race taking place in the Suzuka Circuit. Officially known as the Suzuka International Racing Course, this stadium has been the host of Japan’s F1 events. Such a landmark couldn’t be missing from the Gran Turismo series.

We can also take a look at the diverse aesthetics of the User Interface in the latest of Gran Turismo. Not only that, but we also take a preview to the Spectator function. Also a view of the various ways you can take a look at replays. The competition itself is pretty intense for just 4 players too.

This certainly seems like a project where there’s a ton of love and care put into it. And that’s not an understatement considering the fact that Kazunori Yamauchi, the creator of the series, wants this to be a success.

In fact, not only he improved in many options in regards to the multiplayer content. He also added a lot of stuff for the lone player to do on their own. Like customizing vehicles and taking driver license lessons ala Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec.

And even though I see that there’s going to be DLC Post-Launch. I noticed the fact that the creator doesn’t want Microtransactions near the game. So, this could be a project that has tons of support post-launch. Like Final Fantasy XV.

It almost seems ludicrous to see how a game developer has such amount of respect towards the gamers. And I’m sure it’s going to be an unpopular seller because it’s “A Sports game”. Look at the trailer right below to see the show live.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
