This isn't the best quality video we've ever recorded, which is actually saying quite a lot given the haphazard nature of some of our stuff. It's captured via the Twitch app on the PS4, complete with audio. Unfortunately there's no way to turn the in game audio down, so my commentary gets drowned by the action. Add to that it's not the best quality audio (a handsfree kit going into the pad), and I'm from the north, it's not going to be easy to understand

All that said hopefully there's enough action there to be worth a watch, and to give any one who couldn't play the Destiny beta an idea of what it's like.

For the record I've enjoyed my time with it. The gunplay feels tight, the enemy AI has something to it, and it runs well. The MMO stuff does get in the way a bit, a shame but the game is fun in co-op. I do wish your specials and grenades would charge a bit quicker though

It was quite some time ago that we had the first cross over between the two largest licenses in the beat-em up genre, with Street Fighter X Tekken being released in 2012! but we're still awaiting the reverse of that with the Katsuhiro Harada developed Tekken X Street Fighter seemingly disappearing from public knowledge.


However, Harada has recently stated that the game is still in development, but with Tekken Revolution, Soul Calibur: Lost Swords and Tekken 7 all taking up much of the team of Namco's time this has resulted in Tekken X Street Fighter being a position we're the company is struggling to find a time period to market and release it. Rest assured though that Harada says “It is proceeding. It hasn’t been cancelled, so please relax,”.

Atlus have announced that they will be bringing a new Tactical RPG to Europe (and America) later this year. Developed by Aquaplus, this will be the first instalment in the Tears to Tiara franchise (which also comprises an animated series and Manga) to be released outside of Japan (although admittedly the anime has also made it to the States before).

As with titles such as Conception II, there is no need to have played the previous instalment of the series, which was actually originally released on the PC as an "adult" title and then much later re-released on the PS3 with the adult content toned down quite heavily from what I have read.

We have a gallery and the intro movie for you to check out below:

Namco used San Diego Comic Con 2014 to release the full teaser trailer for Tekken 7. Little is known about what changes will be made to the games systems at this point and the trailer is purely story based, promising to be the "conclusion of the Mishima saga".

I'll admit I don't know a huge amount about upcoming action rpg Freedom Wars, other than it being a hugely anticipated Vita game.

There was some fuss recently that it was only getting a digital release in the west. However, Sony have today announced that Freedom Wars will be getting a physical retailer release

For what it's worth you can see why Sony originally faltered on giving the game a retail release. The Vita is hardly pulling up trees in the west, despite having a good year game wise, you're not going to get many supermarkets or Game stores dedicating space to the game. So even a retail release will likely mean ordering Freedom Wars onlinebr>

The well-received Android and iOS racing game, Table Top Racing, will be making its way to Vita next month.

The downsized racing game, which bares a resemblance to classic Codemasters series Micro Machines, will hit the PlayStation Store on August 6th and will be priced at £4.99.



Featuring single player and multiplayer modes (both local and co-op) and developed by ex-Studio Liverpool staff, this looks like it could be one to watch.

The Fall is pretty good, certainly it's a game interesting enough to be worth your time. I'll do a proper review in the coming week, but it's a mix of point & click mechanics and action adventure mechanics. Kind of like Flashback in The Swapper's skin

It's not without its problems, which I go in to a little bit in the video. It's also only fair to say that the video shows the domestic testing area an hour or so in to the game, so if you don't want any spoilers (I only solve a couple of puzzles) give it a miss

And heres another set of Nippon Ichi screenshots.

This time its Fairy Fencer F, the PlayStation 3 Turn-based RPG featuring character art by Tsunako (Hyperdimension Neptunia), Concept Art by Yoshitaka Amano and music by Nobuo Uematsu (both famed for their work on the Final Fantasy games) and developed by Compile Heart. The accompanying press release states that Fairy Fencer F is about:

Long ago, a dreadful war was fought between the Goddess and the Vile God. Because they were equally matched, they both created a vast number of special weapons imbued with their godly energy, each containing the life force of a fairy. Armed with these weapons, the deities continued their conflict until they finally sealed each other away into the great unknown. A long time has passed since this ancient conflict, and the weapons created by the Goddess and the Vile God have since been scattered across the world. These weapons—now known as “Furies”—are highly sought after by warriors who call themselves “Fencers”. It is said that whoever collects a Fury will be granted one wish. When a young man named Fang decides to rashly pull a Fury from a stone, he inadvertently becomes a Fencer himself, forever altering the course of his destiny.
