Shenmue 1 & 2 collection 2018

Shenmue fans have been hoping for a long time that Sega would release remasters of the first two games of the series leading up to the highly-anticipated release of Shenmue 3, and now they have confirmed that they are. Sega has announced that Shenmue 1 & 2 will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this year.

The company calls the collection “the best Shenmue experience to date,” with lots of modern features to take advantage of. These include the likes of “fully scalable screen resolution, choice of modern or classic control schemes, PC graphics options, an updated user interface, and the option to enjoy either the original Japanese or English voiceovers.”

Unfortunately, Sega did not announce a price or release date for this collection, so we’ll have to wait a while longer for those details. It stands to reason that they would want to get this collection out before the release of Shenmue 3, which is currently targeting a release in the second half of this year. The collection will be getting both physical and digital versions on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though it will be digital-only on PC.

The Shenmue series was groundbreaking in many ways, pushing the boundaries of what video games were capable of in the late 90’s and early 00’s. Both games were well-received, but the extremely high production costs and underwhelming sales meant that the future of the series was put on hold for many years. That all changed when series creator Yu Suzuki took to Kickstarter to get the third game made, raising over $6 million in the process.

Shenmue 3 is in development for PlayStation 4 and PC, with more information on the story and a firm release date expected to come at E3 2018.

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.
