It would appear that the recent announcement of EarthBound for the Wii U virtual console has stirred up the imagination of one particularly skilled fan in the community. Clyde Mandelin, who goes by the name ‘Tomato’, in the community, has offered to provide his translation of EarthBound sequel Mother 3 to Nintendo for free so long as it will help secure a Western release for the game.

Doing what they probably should have done a year or so ago, Sony has at last confirmed that it will be porting the Jak & Daxter Trilogy to PS Vita this June. The Naughty Dog developed collection of PS2 platforming goodness will include all three games that were seen on the recent PS3 re-release, which includes Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3.

Publisher Focus Home Interactive has dropped a brand new trailer for their upcoming action RPG Mars: War Logs. Narrated by Jehanne Rousseau, the CEO of developer Spiders Studios, the overview trailer gives us a fairly decent glimpse at the action, story, conversation, customisation and adventure elements of the game and for a strictly downloadable effort, I think its shaping up pretty nicely. Mars: War Logs is set to release next month [...]

Its that time of the month again folks, as Sony has revealed the extent of the Instant Game Collection goodness that the Playstation Plus service will be bringing to European subscribers next month. Its perhaps not quite as face-shatteringly awesome as previous months, but its pretty good nonetheless with Hitman Absolution kicking everything off on May 1st alongside Deep Silver‘s dark puzzle adventure Catherine. On that same day, PS3 owners will also find the action [...]

Praise the sun!  Sega has announced that its classic Genesis/Mega Drive Disney platformer, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, will receive generous lashings of HD paint when it gets re-released on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 sometime this summer. The remake of the 1990 classic, which will be a downloadable-only effort for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC, is being handled by Sega Studios Australia who will be working alongside [...]

I’ll level with you; i’m horrendous at all facets of coding.  In fact, i’m beyond horrendous at it. The prospect of dusty books, elongated web-seminars and pages upon pages of code hieroglyphics just makes me want to yawn myself inside out and curl up into a little ball and think about fun things. Thankfully, it seems that a group of ultra-clever computer scientists have picked up on this and have devised a [...]

Somebody with a lot more talent than I’ll ever have in my lifetime, has concocted this rather neat and extremely well-produced looking fan made live-action teaser for Dead Space. It doesn’t show much of the Necromorph menace, but largely the atmosphere and sense of foreboding which was pretty much intrinsic with the IP before it went off the rails is all here, present and accounted for. We’ve got the trailer for you after the jump and [...]

Hoping to utterly to erase any and all taste of last year’s reveal of Splinter Cell: Blacklist‘s decidedly un-stealthy shenanigans, Ubisoft have released a new, stealth focused trailer for the game to remind everyone that the game hasn’t devolved into an insipid, third-person shooter. Rather than the in-game footage which has been released previously, this newest video instead frames Mr. Sam Fishers sneaky goings-on in a more cinematic style; showing off a [...]

State of Decay, the supremely ambitious open-world zombie survival romp for Xbox Live Arcade by Undead Labs, has at last been given a release date. Due to arrive this June, which neatly coincides with Microsoft‘s annual Summer of Arcade promotion, the game looks to be a extremely promising prospect and one of the highlights of the year for Xbox Live Arcade. An open-world zombie survival simulation where you have to build fortifications, recruit people to [...]

How about that? Someone is actually doing a Kickstarter for a new Road Rash type game for PC, Mac and Linux!  Well, EA aren’t going to do anything with their asses sat on the license are they? Titled Road Redemption, the developers, DarkSeas Games want just $160,000 to make this game a reality. As of writing they’re currently sat on $4,768.  Do you understand what I am saying to you? [...]
