Pepelogoo – Ashas blue friend

The theme of the new trailer is Pepelogoo, Asha’s trusted blue sidekick and one of the main characters. The trailer shows the two of them working together to overcome any obstacles. 

Without their special friendship and interaction Asha wouldn’t get far with her adventure. 

Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World contains puzzles and adventure elements that Asha and Pepelogoo can only solve together. Some paths seem blocked, but maybe a secret way will open up if Pepelogoo helps? A gap is too wide for jumping? Then Asha can hold on to Pepelogoo and he’ll fly her across it. As Pepelogoo is fond of extreme temperatures, he even stands by her side through the freezing cold and hot lava.

Any time Asha whistles, her loyal friend quickly comes flying, rushing to her rescue. Everyone should have a Pepelogoo in their life!

The legendary quest of two friends

Asha must free the four spirits being confined by evil forces whose origin she discovers throughout her journey. Luckily, she embarks on to this big adventure with her companion Pepelogoo.

While the story remains true to the original game from 1994, the game is a full remake of Monster World IV, with cell-shaded 3D graphics and 2D gameplay that stays close to the beloved original gameplay as well as enhanced visuals and refined play content.

Savior and I finally got what we’ve wanted for ages, and we’re glad to say the classic Mass Effect trilogy is getting it’s remaster. It’s stunning. I’m not ashamed to say I shed a tear when I saw this trailer and I’m sure I speak for thousands of fans when I say I can’t wait. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

It’s that time again for ININ games to release another flashback collection with Turrican Flashback. This one brings you four full games with Turrican 1,2, Super Turrican and Mega Turrican in all its glory on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

These go all the way back to the Commodore Amiga tho they did get released on the Mega Drive and Super Nintendo later. At the time this game was known for an amazing soundtrack and I for one can not wait until I can experience it as I was a little young for its original release. Enjoy the trailer and until the release on January 29th may the gaming gods being you glory.

Sword of the Necromancer is another upcoming action roguelite, this one releasing on January 28th, for the PS4,Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. This one however has a twist, as you attempt to bring someone back from the dead you can being your vanquished foes back to life in order to join your fight to gain enough power to make it to the end. Check out the trailer, and may the gaming gods being you glory.

It has done well in early access, usually hovering around 90% in reviews and it isn’t hard to tell why with the support the game has received. Watch the trailer and see what you think. Best wishes and may the gaming gods being you glory.

The new Mass Effect teaser

While Andromeda was a huge letdown, I’ll never deny my love of the Mass Effect trilogy. The feelings I have are mixed at best. The possibility of another great Mass Effect warms my heart but will it be a continuation of the trilogy? A Andromeda sequel? Something new? Time will tell but it’s coming. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Developed by Regista and directed by Ever17 creator Nakazawa Takumi, Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- Xtend Edition follows the events of a nuclear meltdown at a research facility from two different points of view.

Leaving an unknown amount of survivors inside and a reactor at the verge of exploding, the rescue team is sent in to figure out the situation and save the ones left inside. Unfortunately the leader of the rescue team is suffering from amnesia, which makes the situation even more complicated. The player will uncover the events that have led to this disaster. Combining the stories of the different characters and experiencing every twist and turn is the only way to uncover the truth of what happened that fateful day.

One wrong move can lead to their demise, and the many endings of the game are certainly not happy ever after…

SQUAD-BASED RPG BATTLE HUNTERS COMING TO PC AND SWITCH ON OCTOBER 20th

Independent developer Phase Two Games today announced that their squad-based fantasy adventure RPG Battle Hunters will launch on PC and Nintendo Switch on October 20th.

Ahead of its October launch a playable demo of the game will be available on PC courtesy of the Steam Game Festival Autumn Edition taking place between the 7th and 13th October.

Players will command a team of 3 adventurous heroes, plunging headlong into dungeons, caves, forests and swamps as they heed the call for help from the mysterious ‘Old One’. This will not be an easy quest by any means; a vast array of beastly adversaries and monstrous villains will impede your journey across several different regions of the kingdom. Fear not though, for many mighty heroes stand ready to join the adventure as your valiant trio takes the fight to the forces of darkness. 

Battle Hunters lets players form an adventurer party of 3, chosen from a line-up of 28 unique hero characters who are met and recruited along the journey. Be it the Wizard, the Gunslinger, the Assassin, or any other hero, each has their own specialized fighting skills and unique abilities that players can level up and enhance along the way. 

With an original and fresh approach to combat, through a combination of turned-based and real-time action, Battle Hunters gives players the opportunity to build a uniquely skilled team of adventurers. Different heroes bring a range of strengths and weaknesses to the battle, and with such a wide array of enemies to confront, the player must use the right combination of heroes to suit their own battle style, and to ensure victory.

Players will face off against devious goblins and lumbering trolls, as well as vicious gargoyles and unstoppable stone golems so creating a formidable band of heroes with the right skills can make all the difference.
