Is Konami Having Bigger Problems Than We Think?

Konami Sillent Hills Stock Market Kojima Productions

Recently it became known that Hideo Kojima and Konami are no longer on good terms and after Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s completion he will probably not be a part of the company at all, P.T. will be pulled from PSN never to be seen again (the demo of Silent Hills released to much acclaim as a viral marketing stunt), and Silent Hills will probably never see the light of day. But today even stranger news as well as rumored explanations are hitting the Internet by storm. In a totally unexpected move, Konami has removed themselves from the New York Stock Exchange completely. In addition to this, an anonymous source within Konami claims that Kojima Productions has been dis-assembled as well as the other Konami teams working on various franchises such as Pro Evolution Soccer and Castlevania.

While it is unclear how many more console games Konami will be developing and publishing, the sources state that developers have been grouped into categories of one generic team each focusing on a different type of development (for example, “the graphics team”, “the audio team”, etc.) while developing multiple games at once, primarily unheard of mobile titles as Konami’s CEO begins to shift gears attempting to increase the profit margin of their portfolio by tapping into the Japan smartphone gaming craze. More rumors from the same anonymous source go on to state some very far fetched stuff which would normally not make it to print on RealGamerNewz, but because of Konami’s recent actions they do appear to be more likely to us than we like. Details such as employee accounts being wiped, Internet blackouts, electricity blackouts, and mandatory changing of team locations to keep employees scattered rather than unified are coming to light.

Please take all of this as a grain of salt while we reach out to Konami for comments. However, even if only half of this is true, things are not looking great.

Editor’s Note: Although the intent to take down the demo remains, Apologies for the earlier post exactly when P.T. demo is no longer being available after December 13th, 2015. Turns out the duration was for the twitter user’s PS Plus membership. Apparently the demo is only available for PS Plus members in Germany.
I should have looked more into this before writing about it. Again I apologize.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 ‘Revelations’ DLC Review

Alucard

*Spoilers* This DLC takes during Lords of Shadow 2, so if you haven’t played or beaten it turn back now. Read our review here.

‘Revelations’ is a digital only story add-on for MercurySteam’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Towards the end of LoS2 it was revealed that Alucard, son of Dracula played a huge role in the events of LoS2. We learned of the plan he and his Father put in motion in order to put a stop to Satan and to also have his wish of being freed from his curse of immortality.

Alucard’s story takes place right before the beginning of the main game, when Dracula is set to awaken. Once he does so, he must reclaim his full powers by regaining the Void Sword and Chaos Claws. Unfortunately the Castle is against the idea of Dracula leaving as he is its life blood, so the creatures that inhabit it steal the sword and claws. Knowing that his Father would not be strong enough to battle the Fallen One with out them, Alucard sets out to get the weapons back. That is pretty much it in terms of story here; it doesn’t get much deeper than that and it is really obvious how it ends. If you were expecting any sort of character development for Alucard, you’ll be disappointed. It establishes that he is a bad*** just like his Father but that’s about it.

It is a tale that doesn’t do much for the overall story in Lords of Shadow 2 as we already know how it turns out and one that didn’t necessarily have to be told. Seeing as this was released almost a month after the main game, one would argue that they could have just included it with the full game. It probably would have had more of an impact then.

The third-person combat in ‘Revelations’ is just as fun and fast paced as the main game. Players will once again mix together direct and area attacks to defeat their foes as well perform gruesome executions that replenishes the vampire warrior’s health. Alucard plays similar to that of his Father but brings his own unique abilities and attacks to the table resulting in a familiar yet fresh experience. While Dracula’s main weapon is his devastating shadow whip, Alucard does battle with his Crissaegrim blade and has his own fighting style; this means even though the button inputs for his combos are exactly the same, some of his moves look different and even cooler.

Alucard2

Being a total bad*** clearly runs in the family.

The Crissaegrim Blade is the only weapon our protagonist fights with, unlike his Father who also wields the Void sword and Chaos Claws. Fortunately Alucard also has the powers of Glaciem and Igneas at his disposal; hitting LB (360 controller)  infuses his blade with the power of Glaciem, which replenishes his health with each successful hit and once upgraded can freeze enemies in their tracks. It has the same magical properties as the Void Sword. Igneas is activated by hitting RB as you can guess is similar to the Chaos Claws; the blade is encased in flame making it strong enough to destroy enemy shields and armor, setting them on fire. While it would have been great if Glaciem and Igneas weren’t copies of Void and Chaos powers, freezing and then shattering your enemies and/or burning them is still fun ordeal.

There are a variety of enemies in ‘Revelations’ though the amount of different types are less than in LoS2. Killing them earns Alucard experience points used to purchase new combos and upgrades while mastering his moves will allow you to upgrade his blade making it stronger, making it a bane for his foes. Sadly there aren’t really any new enemies to face, with the exception of one that is just a variation and the final Boss. It would have been great to have faced at least one or two completely new enemies in this, though it’s not a huge issue just a minor gripe.

Speaking of Bosses, that’s where this DLC really disappoints with its foes. There are total of two, yes two Bosses Alucard will face and neither one truly stands out. The first Boss was a cake walk and boring while the final one, is a mixed bag. It starts off cool and offers more of a challenge but quickly becomes less interesting as it falls into the tired old Boss battle tropes that plague many gaming titles.

Just like in the main game when players aren’t engaging the enemy, they will be traversing the environment and Alucard possesses three abilities that allow him to do so successfully. With the Bat Cloud ability players can quickly warp to areas they would not be able to reach otherwise. Timeless Vision allows Alucard to turn back time on old broken objects or structures, effectively repairing them for a short period of time. Spectral Wolf sees the legendary vampire create an apparition in the form of a wolf, allowing him to leap across large gaps and pass through barred areas. It is similar to Dracula’s mist ability but it is useless in combat.

castlevania-lords-of-shadow-2-revelations-achievements-guide

Sic ’em boy!

These abilities makes moving through Dracula’s castle more fun than in LoS2 and the game’s puzzles requires you to utilize them all in clever ways in order to proceed. They aren’t very difficult but still manage to be entertaining. I’m happy to point out that they are no boring stealth missions in ‘Revelations’, so you can breath a sigh of relief.

Once you’ve beaten the game (It will only take a couple of hours to do so) you can continue exploring more of Dracula’s Castle and find any collectibles you may have missed. There is also a new game + mode that allows you to start over with all your upgrades intact, as well the Prince of Darkness difficulty if you wish for more of a challenge.

Final Verdict: The story itself is pretty straightforward, doing nothing in terms of development for Alucard’s character and the Boss Battles are a let down. The combat is still fun and exploration and puzzle solving more entertaining this time around. It will only set you back about $8 which isn’t bad, though I can really only recommend this if you loved Lords of Shadow 2 or a die hard Alucard fan. If not save your money, it is a decent yet ultimately forgettable experience.

Teslagrad Review

teslagrad-artwork-1

Teslagrad is an indie title that melds a variety of items to solve puzzles in a Metroid-style map and a steam-punk universe. The game just released under a week ago for Steam and will also appear on the Wii U.

GAMEPLAY

The gameplay is based around magnetism where with the help of a glove that changes polarities of objects as well as a wide variety of other tools, you solve puzzles and destroy monsters. The use of magnetism to create bridges, stairs, and even as a weapon creates a very unique spin on gravity. The exploration of the game feels like a Metroid or Castlevania title, where you are given a large map but are forced to collect new abilities to pass through previous un-explorable areas created a nostalgic feel for me. For a puzzle game, Teslagrad has a very fun (yet frustrating) way to combat with bosses. Since your character can die unlimited amounts of times, each death means repeat the boss. The first boss had me confused until I realized to follow his patterns. The focus on magnetism in the combat never breaks the game’s flow while also adding urgency in your actions due to how death works.

teslagradgp

PRESENTATION

The steam-punk presentation with the retro-styled graphics mix well. The colors are both bright and vibrant or dark and bleak, to always fit the situation. The light created by magnets and electricity match the “glow” look that they are supposed to be. The music, like the lighting always fits the situation and never felt either too quiet or too loud. The game is presented well as a steam-punk title as you can hear the steam and gears, the electric currents and the crackle of lights. You see the dreary darkness of the Tesla Tower, the locale of this title. You listen to a well put together soundtrack. And you feel like you are in a Steam-punk universe.

REPLAY VALUE

The game features innovative gameplay that can stump the best of us and its exploration aspects create a sense of depth. This title would be a title you complete and then wish to replay to beat your past time or score, similar to that of the Metroid and Castlevania series that this title seems to draw influence from.

teslagrad gp3

Final Verdict:

From the time I’ve spent with Teslagrad, I’m very impressed and despite its difficulty at times, I don’t have a hard time continuing it because the exploration and gameplay are great and I feel immersed in the game. I highly recommend this game to fans of games like Metroid for the exploration and games like Portal, AntiChamber and even the classic Prince of Persia for its fun puzzles and occasional frustrating yet redeeming progression. This game seems more for the hardcore gamers, but I think anyone can get a good experience from this game. A good game with good potential, can’t say its shocking to give it a Silver Game rating.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD Review

Castlevania Mirror of Fate HD Review - RealGamerNewz

Mirror of Fate HD is the console port of Konami’s Nintendo 3DS title which installed the Lords of Shadow series into the handheld console. Mirror of Fate is not a 3D action adventure title like Lords of Shadow though, and instead harkens back to the good old days when Castlevania was a 2D open world type of game. With a less linear approach to things, Mirror of Fate HD extends the Castlevania: LoS series into the 2D world with 3D character models as well as other assets including backgrounds fleshed out with new age graphical techniques.

Story: In an alternate telling of the Belmont chronicles, Mirror of Fate HD completely re-writes the history of the Castlevania series. In this game Gabriel Belmont is Dracula and players must play the roles of Simon, Alucard, and Trevor. For some players this is probably going to be upsetting, however it does offer a fresh new plot to the series. The title starts off with Gariel’s woman being shown the future through a mirror (the Mirror of Fate) in which things take a turn for the worst for the Belmont family. Later on down the line we are shown that fate is something written in stone and a strange and eerie guide watches over this fate to ensure its proper fulfillment.

The storyline overall is interesting and gripping and may be one of the game’s strong points. Without getting into spoilers, players should know that there are many emotional moments in this title that shouldn’t be missed by dedicated fans of the franchise. The twists and turns of the events that take place in Mirror of Fate HD are extremely moving and go in-depth developing each character’s resolve, history, and purpose in life. Although slightly adjusted from the plot in traditional Castlevania past, much of this game’s events will feel familiar. While once again we must stress that the story in Mirror of Fate HD is incredible but may at times come off a bit silly with a sort of “family airing out dirty laundry” theme recurring.

Gameplay / Controls: Mirror of Fate HD opens up with an epic series of events but unfortunately the majority of the gameplay seen in this title is extremely confusing. Players who like to find things out for themselves, pressing on through the maze-like castle, will enjoy themselves just fine. Lords of Shadow fans who are looking for something more linear are going to be disappointed though.

The mini-map often fails to direct players as to how to get around and instead just vaguely reference where they’ll eventually end up once they’ve figured out what to do. The great thing about Mirror of Fate HD’s gameplay is that it’s a lot like the old school Castlevania games and yet the unfortunate thing about this title’s gameplay is that players get lost way more often than in the classic titles. Again, there’s a great game to be had here and most Castlevania players will  be willing to work through the madness while many even still will enjoy the fact that the game sports a labyrinth of a layout, it’s just something that should be understood going in from the beginning. Upgrades are available but this isn’t a role playing type of game such as previous Castlevania titles.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate HD PS3 Review 2

This game is essentially Lords of Shadow on a 2D playing field, hence the extremely long name that felt the need to refer back to LoS as a reminder of what the developer was aiming for. Mirror of Fate HD is already described by many as a ‘Metroidvania’ style of a game which relates to the fact that it’s two dimensional and yet lends itself to the exploration expected from an open world title. The game also features puzzles, platforming, and quick-time events that keep things interesting the entire time. The responsiveness of the DualShock 3 and Xbox 360 controller are much appreciated as well as the preciseness to the directional pad as gamers are tasked with a difficult platformer with Mirror of Fate HD.

Characters / Enemies: There are three playable characters for this game. Experience points are earned and used throughout the game which apply to you the player rather than each character though, which is good since players change characters quickly as they progress through the title. Most enemies present poor A.I. and typically require repetition to take them out, but they look good and Bosses are much more interesting to do battle with. Simon, fan-favorite Alucard, and Trevor each have their own abilities and powers that are experienced through the game.

Graphics / Art Direction: Visually the game fails to be stunning but looks great. Players who missed out on the 3DS version will be happy to see what the title looks like on a home console. The Art Direction is of course a realistic geometric representation of the anatomy of the characters and enemies seen in the game as well as the castle but set in the fantastical Castlevania universe.

Soundtrack, Audio, Voice: The voice acting in this game is top quality, as expected from the publisher and developer behind it. The music in the game is equally excellent and the audio sound effects are pretty much what you’d expect. Overall the audio quality of Mirror of Fate HD is without a question Triple A material.

Replay Ability: Easy, Normal, and Hard gameplay modes are available from the start with a Hardcore mode for extended play which is unlocked after beating the game. There are also a few different types of collectibles that can  be acquired by keeping a look on the mini-map for when they appear throughout the title and making sure to figure out how to grab them before moving on. This extends the length of the game somewhat, but can also make for a reason to return to the title a second time in Hardcore mode.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate HD PS3 Review 3

Engine Performance: No glitches were encountered during our playthrough of this game. The engine is solid and cohesive with no hit detection issues or graphical problems to be seen at all.

Final Verdict:

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD is a nice little adventure while fans wait for the Lords of Shadow 2 title to hit. It morphs the classical tale of the Castlevania universe which can be seen as a good or bad thing depending on how you feel about new takes on old legends. The gameplay is exploratory and yet manages to throw in enough Lords of Shadow to feel new and unique. Getting lost in the castle will not be fun to everyone though, and some of the game’s moments will be spent wandering around bored and annoyed. Overall the game is well worth playing and fails to disappoint in terms of a great story, decent gameplay, and excellent soundtrack. Mirror of Fate HD gets a 7.5 out of 10 making it a Bronze Game for RealGamerNewz.
