The Earthbound Vibes Get Even Stronger In Knuckle Sandwich's Latest Trailer

Knuckle Sandwich is an RPG about day jobs and cults caught somewhere between Earthbound and Undertale. Need I say more? Advertisement It’s never clear whether fever dreams like these will pan out. I also had high hopes for Citizens of Earth, another Earthbound-inspired RPG from not too long ago that ended up feeling more than a little hollow. But Knuckle Sandwich feels different. Weirder-looking and potentially less imprisoned by convention, the game envisioned by Australia creator Andrew Brophy seems to want to take a cracked baseball bat to the genre as well as its inspirations. The trailer outlines a bunch of things you as the player can do in Knuckle Sandwich. They include, but are not limited to, Meet the locals Buy a thing Work it Take out the trash Pause the game Wait in line Ding Work it again Run from your problems Receive the greatest gift of all Catch every single one of them Fight for your life Instead of focusing on the grind of classic RPGs, however, the game seems to subscribe to the Undertale school of “less is more” when it READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

You Can Do A Lot Of Role-Playing In The PS4's Latest Baseball Game

When Sony says MLB The Show 17 includes a third-person baseball role-playing game, they aren’t exaggerating. I’m not just playing baseball. I’m role-playing a character who’s playing baseball, and he’ll be damned if he’s drafted by the Florida Marlins. Advertisement It’s not just about playing games, building stats, unlocking perks and making your mark on Major League Baseball. That stuff is all present and accounted for, but this year’s Road to the Show gets more personal. This is done through a series of documentary-style asides in which the player’s player is asked to make important decisions about his baseball career. He’ll consult with his advisor, hire an agent, and role-play out interactions that were all handled through simple menu choices in previous iterations of the popular game mode. Advertisement Let me tell you about my player, Mike Shirt. The result of 20 minutes of character creation. I named him Mike, after myself, and Shirt, because I wanted the back of his jersey to read like a label from the live-action Batman TV show from the ‘60s. Like me he is READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
