    I really hope they go into a different direction with the games sooner than later. There have been enough fixed camera multiplayer brawler with more than wonky controls. Instead i would love if they adapted and took the piss out of current games. Like a LEGO take on Dark Souls. Tight controls, high difficulty and learning curve (or adjustable difficulties), LEGO humor but a bit more worked out game mechanics.

    The latest PS4 update for Lego Dimensions adds some info about the next seven characters. Among other revelations, Bubbles, Beast Boy, and Starfire can use the Atlantis Pools, Bubbles can speak Parseltongue, and Buttercup can perform Spinjitzu.

    The original Sims is about to make a comeback and I am so excited, I just hope that I won't be disappointed. I can't wait to play it on my smartphone and console.

    I didn't watch it myself, but the comments reveal that Lego/Warner took more inspiration from the reboot than the Classic series, including Cathy Cavadini, Tara Strong, and EG Daily not reprising their roles. :(
    (The second one sounds especially surprising, since she already voices at least one playable character.)
    On the bright side, they won't help make my Lego Dimensions shelf become even more crowded.

    The character models look horrific. You have these quite decent enviroment assets and looks and then these puppet looking (and moving) characters. I know it's quite some time out but honestly, visually it's actually pretty awful.

    So later 2018 will see the release of Anno 1800. It looks awesome, i just hope they go back to the gameplay depth of 2070 or 1404 (the best anno to date). One big wish: rework the battle gameplay or leave it out. It's maybe the most boring and least thought out part of the whole franchise. Two units just stand there and you wait until one's health bar is 0. Eventhough they could do so many awesome things. Sea battles with ships acting like realy ships, soldiers on the ground taking position in houses and such things. Something to make military action woth the effort.

    Shoulda been Etrigan. I would have died if all his intros and clashes were rhyming couplets.

    So this was announced for PC, PS4 and PS Vita.


    Good for them embracing the Multiplayer (according to other websites) BUT was there no better way to remake a game with such iconic and beautiful Pixel Art than using horrifically simplistic and poorly made 3d assets. They could have used a 3d block look like 3d dot hero (just a higher res so the models look closer to the original) or just go with pixel art. I mean looking at recent pixel art indie games, you could create insanely smooth animations and all that. just look at the upcoming Sandfox, Dead Cells, Sundered, and so on. They show what level of animation fidelity and pixel art between modern technology and retro look you could create, if you tried.
    Look at how amazing Yomawari: Night Alone, Graveyard Keeper look. Their style is quite a bit what Mana games should look like. Sure 2D Sprites are a lot of effort (eventhough there are plenty of small indie studios using them amazingly well) but atleast i would feel compelled to pay the asking price of roughly 45 Bucks.

    Well PS4 owners will finally get to play the new Dead Rising game a year later.



    Haven't heard too many good things about this one so even with all the DLC, doesn't seem too worth it.
