They've done a new IP!

It's a multiplayer third-person adventure title, where up to four players investigate various exotic locations as an Egyptian witch queen has resurrected all sorts of monsters.

It's explained slightly better in this 1930s-style trailer:

It's due 'soon' on PC, XBone and PS4, and we'll be seeing gameplay footage during E3.

Somehow it passed me by that the release date for Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 on PC was so close to the European (and Western at that!) console release, so used have I got to fighting games being released late on PC

To get Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 on Steam you're going to have to do a bit of work, but the short version is that you need Guilty Gear Xrd REV, then you need to buy REV 2 as dlc for the game.

The slightly longer version is that you can buy the game (from HERE) then pick whether you want versions of the game(s) with all the character dlc, costume dlc, audio dlc etc, or the cheaper option of the base game(s) with the option to pick up the extra characters as you see fit

There's a lengthy trailer below that goes in to detail on some of the changes for Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2

We reviewed the Vita release of Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo a couple of years ago. I gave it a 7 out of 10.

Now the game is coming to the PS4 and has had a HD tarting up in the process

v is a hack & slash action rpg, set in a far future Tokyo, where you must destroy rival mechs to keep humanity safe, equipping their dropped items in the process

Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo wasn't a bad game ont he Vita, helped by its price and that it was on the Vita. That's not to be dismissive of the Vita, nor Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo, but I do wonder how well the simple gameplay will translate to the PS4 two years down the line.

Still, I had fun with it, there was quite a bit of charm to it all, and there's an awful lot of game there. It's also helped by the price, 7.99, and the promise of 60fps, all in all I'd say (based on my memories of the Vita version) Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo HD Edition might be worth giving a go

Spiritual successor or semi-sequel, who knows really, but Gematsu have revealed that El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron creators are working on a follow up called The Lost Child

Plot Wise it's about a journalist who discovers the ability to recruit demons to fight other demons, so it's very much got a Shin Megami Tensei vibe, but nicely Lucifel / Lucifer from El Shaddai is back

Aside from that, it's coming to PS4 and Playstation Vita, is apparently about 90% done, and is being published by Kadokawa

I have incredibly fond memories of playing Micro Machines 2 on the Megadrive, using 4 pads thanks to the two extra ports on the game cartridge itself, and playing 8 player races thanks to the pad sharing mechanic. I'm of a generation that is watching Micro Machines World Series with impossibly high expectations

It's with some relief then that Codemasters have released a trailer for the upcoming Micro Machines World Series, and it's actually looking pretty good

Race and Elimination modes are back, as well as a 12 player battle mode and online modes, and nicely, 4 player local split screen. Micro Machines World Tour is set to release in June on PC, PS4 and Xbox One

I'm sure you're aware, but Sega have been teasing some Bayonetta news over the past week. The more optimistic amongst us have been hoping it will be the announcement of Bayonetta 3, unfortunately not (but never say never). Instead the more conservative theory that it was a port of the original game to PC turned out to be the big Bayonetta news

Not that I'm sniffing at that, prior to the WiiU getting a port of the original Bayonetta I'd have leapt at the idea of a steam port, particularly one priced at the Bulletstorm-antithesis price of 14.99

Bayonetta is on Steam right now, and boasts 60fps, up to 4K resolution, Japanese and English voice tracks, and some more advanced graphical options like improved anti-aliasing and SSAO lighting

Mantis Burn Racing is a game I really quite enjoyed, and one that is also a pretty decent way to make use of your Playstation 4 Pro and 4K television, should you have them.

Well, should you need an excuse to dust off your game, Mantis Burn Racing now has 2 new pieces of DLC.

The first DLC to talk about is Snowbound Pack DLC. The Snowbound Pack if free, and while it only includes 1 new location, because of the way the game only uses parts of locations as tracks, you're actually looking at 4 new tracks. Plus VooFoo Studios are also throwing in seasons 2 and 3 of the Veteran career mode (another 34 events) for you to play with, should you have got to the point where you ran out of content in Mantis Burn Racing (seriously, that career mode is pretty long)

There's also some paid dlc, the Elite Class dlc, priced at 1.99, brings lightning fast hover-cars to mantis Burn racing, so 3 new vehicles, plus a 12 event Elite career, so again, not bad if you're looking to get back in to the game.

The trailer for the Snowbound Pack is posted below

PQube have announced that they're bringing Fight of Gods to Steam, and while very little has been shown yet, the reason I'm posting about it is because of what it's not, being instead a Western looking 2D-fighter

Not that I've anything against Japanese, or faux-Japanese style 2D fighters, on the contrary I love them. In fact I'm struggling to think of a Western 2D or 3D fighter that would trouble my top 10 fighting games (or top 20 for that matter), but it is nice to see someone try something different.

Fight of Gods features the likes of Odin and Zeus battling it out, we're probably not going to see Allah v Jesus so don't get your hopes up, but the likes of Shin Megami Tensei have shown that gods do tend to have characteristics that lend themselves to being extrapolated for a game.

There's a trailer below, and Fight of Gods is due in the summer on Steam

I'm a little surprised there hasn't been a Wonder Girl before if I'm honest, it seems like something that would have been added along the way. Anyway, DotEmu have addressed the lack of female character in Wonder Boy by letting you play as Wonder Girl

Wonder Girl will be playable in the new HD Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, plus also the retro inspired version. There's a trailer below that shows her, and Monster Boy, in action
