Troll and I Will Make You Quickly Forget About the Last Guardian in New Story Trailer

Troll and I Story Trailer Video game publisher Maximum Games, in partnership with developer Spiral House, has today released a brand-new trailer for its upcoming action adventure game, Troll and I. Today’s trailer highlights the game’s heroes, Otto and Troll, and the challenges they will face together as their relationship grows and evolves over the course of their journey. Taking place in the majestic mountains and lush forests of post-World War II, 1950’s-era Scandinavia, Troll and I follows the adventure of a teenage boy and the unlikely friendship he develops with a massive, mythical Troll.

Now with a bounty on his head, and forced into hiding to survive, Otto encounters and befriends Troll, an elusive creature of folklore and legend who has managed to stay hidden from the world…until now.

The hunters,…

Mark McMorris Infinite Air Review – Infinite Bail (PS4)

[embedded content] My first impression with Mark McMorris Infinite Air was not a positive one. I was undergoing the snowboarding game’s tutorial and got to the part where I got to learn how to do flips. It showed me the prompt (which is holding the right stick up or down, by the way) once and then expected me to do it. Fair enough, but since I didn’t know that the timing had to be precise (I had to let go of the jump button before I hit a ramp for the flip to work) I ended up failing the tutorial repeatedly. Typically, when I fail a tutorial, the game will show me the prompt again so I can figure out what I did wrong. Instead of that, Infinite Air just told me to “Try Again!” and then gave me some advice without actually giving me the instructions on how to perform a flip. I ended up pressing every button I could on the controller trying to figure out how to bring the help prompt back up (since surely it had to be there), and ended up accidentally quitting out of the tutorial and finding myself in the middle of a mountain with no guidance….

Loading Human: Chapter 1 Review – Starting Point (PSVR)

[embedded content] Gaming in virtual reality is currently in its infancy, and the PlayStation VR launch lineup has shown us that developers are very much learning as they go. Unlike conventional gaming there aren’t predefined rules of what works and what falls flat, so we’re already seeing different developers take vastly different approaches to different problems. One of the biggest challenges has been movement, as first-person games with analog control have made players extremely sick (looking at you Here They Lie and Resident Evil VII). Untold Games, the developer behind first-person adventure title Loading Human, have come up with a pretty interesting way to deal with it even if I wouldn’t call it ideal. Using two PlayStation Move controllers, players move by pointing the controller either forward or backwards) and pressing the Move button. Yes, to take a step back, you have to point the controller over your shoulder. That control scheme is as awkward as it seems, and the ability to shift your stance (by pressing the move button on the other PlayStation Move controller) makes it even more convoluted. Despite a rather long introductory section that is built solely on showing the controls, I only really got the full hang of Loading Human‘s control…

Editor’s Review Guide to PlayStation VR Games and Applications

The PlayStation VR has finally hit the market and with it dozens of games, experiences and everything in between. Along with the PlayStation VR headset, DualShockers has tried out as many games as we could get our hand on and (after spending countless hours in other realities) we are ready to make a few summary judgments on where you should be spending your money. Below, check out our brief reviews of both the PlayStation VR games as well as the major applications coming out — and yes, we will keep this list updated through the launch window: Developer: No Goblin LLCPrice: $19.99 100ft Robot Golf is a fantastic mashup of games I would never expect to merge, in games or otherwise. Featuring Sunday-morning-cartoon style anime robots and dead pan comedy from golf commentators, the experience clicks stylistically and will regularly keep you laughing. Utilizing the PSVR headset, players will be able to see from the perspective of the 100 foot behemoths as you knock down buildings, fly from place to place, and — of course — try to hit a few birdies. And while the experience hits a ton of high notes stylistically, the gameplay (as compared to other golf titles) leave some…

[embedded content] Developer Lince Works announced today that Aragami, their stealth game where you play as an undead assassin with the power to control the shadows, will be available on October 4 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4 and PC.

The regular retail edition (price TBA) includes the game, digital art book, and digital soundtrack. The Signature Edition includes the game, the official soundtrack CD, an art book, and a signed box.

We’ve catered the game to two distinct playstyles — Ghosts and Demons. Ghosts are the type of players that prefer to be silent assassins that leave no traces behind. Demons, on the other hand, are brutal killing machines that love to vanquish every enemy in the area. Whichever playstyle you…
