The Gaming News Thread (for news that doesn't need a thread)

I agree. Bloodborne is one of my favourite games of all time, and as much I'd love a second, I don't think this is it. The currently prevailing theory is that it's either a Shadow Tower reboot or something completely new.

I had a closer look at the trailer and noticed some Japanese kanji scribbles in ink, could be a new Tenchu instalment.
 
You know, I really don't think it is Bloodborne 2. The music seems very Japanese, and the background of the trailer shows writing that also looks Japanese. Unless they're massively changing the setting from the first game to something set in Japan, I'm unsure this is a Bloodborne sequel.
Yeeeeeah now that I've re-watched it when not half asleep it's clearly not Bloodborne, I mean the arm device thing has a bloody kunai in it lol I hate that I got excited for a new Bloodborne, I just want it to be a thing so much ;_; That said I love Tenchu and it could very well be that so I guess I'll live, I have a lot of faith in From.

*although I've seen people claiming it could be something to do with a game called KUON as the sound effect in the teaser is commonly used in that game. Can't say I know much about KUON tbh but it sounds interesting.

PSX is currently going on and Sony have announced two more first-party titles getting the remaster treatment.

MediEvil
The classic skeleton knight from the PlayStation 1 era (and also the PSP re-imagining which destroyed the franchise) returns with more details to be revealed soon. 4K resolution is confirmed.

Patapon 2
The sequel to the cult hit rhythm game from the PlayStation Portable will also be remastered with 4K resolution and support similar to its predecessor.

In addition WipEout will also be offered VR support via an update sometime during early 2018.

I'll be picking up the Anniversary Collection for some 3rd Strike online as I've missed it quite a bit tbh.

Sakura looks great man (and her theme is still one of my favourites), nice to see they finally took her out her school uniform (probably only so they could sell it as a DLC costume as they know many will buy it, but still :p)

Glad they went and showed off everyone rather than the silly silhouettes, I mean showing people what they are getting with a season pass? What a concept... Sagat looks freaking sick too. I'm not a huge fan of Street Fighter V (and that makes me sad to say as Street Fighter is up there as one of my favourite franchises) but I'm willing to give Arcade Edition a go when it comes out.
 
Some more great news from Fakku, today it was announced adult games from MangaGamer, JAST USA, NekoWorks, Denpasoft, Lyricbox and Illusion will be seeing their way onto the Fakku website with a pretty nice selection already available to buy. More Publishers/Developers to be announced in the future.

Its also great they're taking a zero-tolerance approach to stolen artwork, flipped assets and machine translations with all games being curated before being put up for sale. Fakku has done some really good work over the last few years so its good they expect the same level of quality in the games they're going sell.

Fakku announcement can be found here
