Supreme Commander 2 by Square Enix
Set 25 years after the occasions of the original Recreation, Supreme Commander 2 starts offevolved with the assassination of the newly elected president of the Colonial Security Coalition. The CDC members – the United Earth Federation, the Order of the Illuminate, and the Cybran Nation – deny involvement, blame each and every other, and a galactic battle ensues! Experience brutal battles on an immense scale! Players will wage conflict via creating huge customizable armies and experimental conflict machines that can trade the balance of power at any given moment. Take the role of probably the most three enigmatic commanders, each representing a novel faction with a wealthy story that brings a new stage of emotional connection to the RTS genre, or Battle the fight on-line. Where do your loyalties lie?
Then, Jones exited the menu to a command bridge looking out over the depths of space. I was struck by the beautiful view, and thought that it was a nice backdrop to the exploration. But he pressed the arrow keys and the ship moved. It's a fully maneuverable ship flying in three-dimensional space, and each sector you travel to has several planets, asteroids, and debris to fly to and visit. It seemed peaceful to fly through the blackness of space, stopping at whichever landmark stuck out.
Watching the demo made me want to be in the world and to uncover all the secrets it contains. The points of discovery held small stories and the decisions made those stories unique, each choice coloring your experience.
Into the Stars is coming to PC on Steam in July.
Devastated Dreams is the new 2D side-scrolling survival horror game by Infinitap Game’s Matt Gilgenbach. And the demo I played was just as terrifying and personal as its predecessor, Neverending Nightmares.
The game is set in a rural village in the Philippines where you play as a pregnant Filipino woman who must journey through twisted nightmares filled with monsters from the country’s folklore. What I played had me treading through dark ominous Philippine village pathways, exploring huts, finding keys, and enduring some well-timed jump scares.
"Everything worth your time in Woolly World is only available if you choose to hunt it down. You don't need to collect a single hidden item on your journey from 1-1 to the final boss. If you want to be fully entertained, the hard road is the only real option. It is your own degree of curiosity, and your compulsive nature, that will determine which route you'll take." [Full review]
"Excellent occasionally, good in parts and downright dull in others, Yoshi's Woolly World is a disappointment." [Full review]
"Those looking for something cuddly and vibrant to play with a child or sibling will find it most welcoming, while Nintendo die-hards will recognise this as a safe and uninspiring spin-off, sent out to fill time in between core Mario titles. Everyone, however, will agree that Yoshi's actual yarn-pooping is the cutest thing that'll happen to games in 2015, and for that it deserves a massive hug… but not a stellar score." [Full review]
"Yoshi's Woolly World has been absolutely worth the wait. It's accomplished platforming within Yoshi's quirky and unique template, and has enough soft cuteness to charm young gamers and melt the hearts of the most jaded of veteran gamers. Along with some of Nintendo's best co-op platforming, tough collectible challenges for skilled players and some simple but neat use of amiibo, it also delivers where it matters the most with clever, witty stage design. This stands up as one of the Wii U's elite games - perfect for snuggled in gaming time." [Full review]
Dubbed the "Ultimate Player Edition," the new model will be available in "select Europe and PAL territories" from July 15. The model has yet to be confirmed for release across the US.
"Offering twice the storage of the existing PS4, you'll be able to download more of the games you love to your PS4, extend your play with more great add-on content and save and share even more of your best gaming highlights," Sony says.
Pricing information was not provided, as Sony is advising those interested to "check with your local retailer."
The new model is also ten percent lighter, weighing a total of 2.5 kg, and also uses eight percent less energy. It's hard drive bay cover now also has a matte finish.
In early June, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) certified two new PlayStation 4 models, indicating Sony was planning to release new SKUs in the US.
The first model was believed to feature a 500 gigabyte capacity, which is the same as current PS4 models, while the second seemed to have a one terabyte hard drive.
It may be that these models are announced for the US in the near future.
