Tap My Katamari is a new "action puzzle clicker game" coming soon to iOS and Android. Check out this preview trailer above.
Worry not, this delay only pushes the game back by about a month, but it isn't the first time Naughty Dog has changed the release date on their game; Uncharted 4 was originally supposed to be released near the end of 2015, then was moved to March, and now April.
The new release date for Uncharted 4: A Thiefs End is April 26, 2016.
According to creative director and game director Neil Druckmann & Bruce Straley, the game has been delayed because there's still polishing to do:
This is our largest Uncharted game to date, and the team has been working incredibly hard to meet the challenge of closing out the game’s development in a timely manner. However, as we approached our final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels, we realized that several key sequences needed extra resources to bring them to the finish line. After carefully considering all of our options, we decided to extend our schedule, making sure that we get a few more polish passes before submitting our gold master (the final disc for manufacturing).
They've gotta take their time to get the final chapter in Nathan Drake's story right, and that's alright with me.
Rare Replay has brought us a...well, rare look at the game that never was, Project Dream.
Way back in 1995, Rare was working on a game called Project Dream for SNES that featured a little boy, Edson, and his dog Dinger fighting a group of pirates. Very few screenshots and no gameplay were ever seen, because the game was scrapped and redeveloped into Banjo Kazooie on the N64.
If you're interested in the history of games or if you're just a big fan of Banjo, this footage and interview with the team is a really neat look at how he came to be.
You've got between now and January 4th to get in on the Steam Sale. Disregard Christmas, acquire games.
Go go go go!
Don't forget, daily and flash deals are a thing of the past, so there's no more waiting for the perfect moment; just get it or don't. If you're wondering why, you can most likely thank the refund system. With refunds in place, people would be able to return a sale item they already bought if they caught it at a lower price later, and that's just bad for business.
A Siberian man apparently lost his job, his friends, and his wife after playing Fallout 4 for three weeks straight, and now he wants $7,000 for "emotional distress" from Bethesda and the game's Russian localization firm. Sigh.
The man claims he had no idea how addictive and all-encompassing Fallout could be, saying, "If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it. I would not have bought it, or I would have left it until I was on holiday or until the New Year holidays." His addiction supposedly also caused him physical duress, as he was not eating or sleeping regularly during his Fallout binge. The case has not yet made it to court, but the man has secured a lawyer willing to take it on.
The wait for the #mysteriousgame is over! Bandai Namco has announced God Eater: Resurrection and God Eater 2: Rage Burst, Tales of Berseria, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs. Force coming to the Americas in 2016. You can watch all of their announcement trailers here.
