Rumor: テイルズ オブ ヴェスペリア Tales of Vesperia Remastered Leaked for PS4

A few days ago RPG gamers went crazy at the possibility of a new Remaster for the beloved 2008 / 2009 title from Namco Tales Studio, Tales of Vesperia. Well known as practically the only Tales game to ever grace the Xbox platforms when it dropped on Xbox 360, although the later PlayStation 3 version in 2009 new bosses, enemies, dungeons, party members, and full voice acting. Some of the features on the Xbox 360 version of the game had to be cut due to the fact that Microsoft decided to use DVD discs for their games back then, whereas Sony used Blu-ray discs on PS3. Fans now wonder if this rumored remaster of the game will arrive on both consoles.

E3 2018: EA Games Press Conference – Full WrapUp & Videos

Andrea Rene hosted this year’s EA Games Press Conference, called EA Play, Saturday at 11 AM Pacific Time. The show was two and a half hours long and played host to new indie game reveals, Star Wars announcements, EA Sports updates, the first look at Anthem, and of course new Battlefield V information.

While many fans of EA Games will be pleased, some of the more skeptical gaming community members have had their hesitant outlook verified. Overall it was a mediocre showing with EA clearly trying to reduce the amount of time spent on their usually boring segments but presenters often being too nervous to deliver a solid presentation.

Pre-E3 2018: Hitman 2 Announced by IO Interactive

Formerly a subsidiary of Square Enix, IO Interactive regained independence last year shortly after E3 2017 and were able to bring with them the Hitman IP which they created 18 years ago giving players the choice between a brutal rush or stealth operation for each mission. One of the main features the game promised and delivered on was excellent gun-play, the ability to disguise one’s self with costumes and props, and a variety of ways to complete the objectives each level laid out for the player.

Over the years we’ve seen many Hitman games across a few different publishers but IO Interactive has always wanted to get back to their roots while evolving the original game’s premise further. Under Square Enix, Hitman has seen some interesting titles such as Hitman: Absolution and Hitman Go.

In a new partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive publishing a title that IO Interactive has announced today, called Hitman 2, we hope to see this vision truly realized. It would seem the deal with WB Games could be a one-off, with IO Interactive praising their new independence. The game has a lot to live up to by bearing the same name as Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, the 2002 release on PC, PlayStation 2, Original Xbox, and GameCube (and my personal favorite in the series).

Rumor: Just Cause 4 Leaked by Steam Advertisement

It has become a problem how many leaks and rumors we’re having leading up to E3. While our Editor-In-Chief recently ran through a majority of the rumors out there in Pre-E3 2018: Rumor Roundup – the good, the bad, and the ugly, there have been even more rumors popping up since. We aim to cover everything great that E3 has to offer, so be assured that if they are real you’ll probably see them center stage in our wrap-up files come game-day. That being said, I wanted to take a moment to deliver one more rumor at least, which has popped up just a few moments ago.
