Batman: Arkham Knight’s Limited Edition May Have Spoiled a Major Part of the Story

Batman-Arkham-Knight-5

The Limited Edition of  Batman: Arkham Knight, may have inadvertently spoiled the game’s story. As it was revealed last year, the LE package contains a 50 page custom art book, a steelbook case, comic book and a 12-inch statue of the Caped Crusader.

So what about this is spoiler you ask? Well if you aren’t bothered by spoilers (If you are then turn back!), then pay closer attention to the plaque on statue in the pic below. When it was first revealed the plaque read, “The Gotham Knight”. Now (SPOILERS) the words inscribed now says, “From a grateful city, in memory of the Gotham Knight.” This pretty much implies that The World’s Greatest Detective’s time as Batman comes to an end.

Whether Rocksteady actually kills off the bat or they go The Dark Knight Returns/Rises route, is anyone’s guess. We will have our answer come summer time, when the game releases on June 2.

2014 : The Return Of Limited Edition Consoles

2014 The Return of Limited Edition

<p>If you talked to any gamer last gen the biggest complaint from gamers was that there were  hardly any collector’s edition consoles and one’s that are came out in the middle or at the end of the generation. When this generation began the big three began to listen to their fans bases and began to develop Limited or Collector’s Edition Consoles for their biggest games. Microsoft has two Xbox One Bundles coming out, Sony has a Destiny PS4 Bundle and Nintendo has already released a limited edition Wii U console; it may be safe to say this trend is here to stay. </p>

 

Sunset Overdrive Xbox One Console

Sunset Overdrive will have a 500GB limited edition all white  Xbox One Console and Controller with a download code for the game.

Call Of Duty LMTED Xbox One

 

 Call of Duty Advance Warfare will have a limited edition 1TB Xbox One and Controller along with a download code for the game as well as the Seasons Pass.  If you would like more information on this console bundle check out our Call Of Duty: Advance Warfare news update. 

Destiny PS4 Bundle

Destiny will have its very own 500GB all white limited edition PS4 Console and Controller a copy of Destiny and 30 days of Playstation Plus. If you didn’t know we are holding a giveaway for this bundle right here on RGN, click here for more information.

 

 

 

Zelda wii U

 

Nintendo has sold out of this limited edition Zelda Wii U bundle not once but twice. This Limited Edition Wii U Bundle came with a copy of The Legend Of Zelda Wind Waker HD, a Limited Edition Zelda Wii U Gamepad, a digital copy of The Legend of Zelda Hyrule Historia and the 32 GB Wii U Deluxe Console.

These are just a few of the Limited Edition Consoles that have been released but there is no denying that they have returned to U.S/E.U. shores and are here to stay.  If you own one these consoles or plan on purchasing one leave us a comment below also if you have a Limited Edition Console we should be aware of or should add to this list, leave a comment below.

Collector’s Only #4 – Looking Back

Collector's Only Looking Back

In the last console generation gamers saw a flood of games that saw a collector’s edition or limited editon when they we’re released.  There so many of games of yester-gen that got this treatment that a lot of them felt tacked on to give the developers and publishers an extra SKU and few actually stood out to the gamer at large. in this edition of Collectors Only we take a look back at the games who’s collectors edition actually stood out and gave those gamers who invested the extra money something to be proud of.

 

Halo 3

Halo 3

Halo 3 arguable kicked off the Collector’s Edition crazy of last gen showing people that they can and will be successful putting the right content inside the box. The box in this case was a Master Chief helmet and included all of the items in the limited edition (extra maps, behind the scenes etc) and just look cool to put on display for all of your friends and family to bask in its glory.

The Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collection

SF25

Capcom did the unthinkable with the release of the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collection by packing in almost every Street Fighter ever created. It also contains Street Fighter 2 the animated movie and the Street Fighter IV movie, the complete soundtrack, a black belt, an art book and a certificate of authenticity this is a must own for any street fighter fan.

Infamous 2 Hero Edition/Uncharted 2 Among Thieves/The Last Of Us

Infamous 2

UC3 CollectorsTLOU Post Pandemic Edition

Sony made sure that they give their fans a lot of bang for their gaming buck in these collector’s editions with Infamous 2, Uncharted 3, and The Last of Us. There is so much content, and extra goodies in these collector’s edition that make it almost mandatory to buy them at launch or lose out on the bragging rights to those who did.

The Elders Scrolls V: Skyrim

Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was a massive gem of last generation that threw gamers into the unfamiliar region of Tamriel  and into an adventure unlike any we’ve seen before. The Collector’s Edition of Skyrim gave gamers a Behind-The-Scenes look at the development of the game, a quality art book, steelbook, Dovahkiin Dragon Statue and a leather-esque map of Skyrim not available in the standard edition.

 

Batman Arkham: Series

Batman Arkham asylum
Batman Arkham city cejpg

Batman Arkham origins ce

The Collector’s Editions for the Batman Arkham series has got better with each entry into the series. The teams at Rocksteady, Eidos, and WB Games has packed each collector’s set with statues, DLC, memorabilia, movies and more; leaving gamers to wonder what Batman Arkham Knight will contain in its collector’s edition.

Grand Theft Auto: V Collector’s Edition

GTA V collector's edition

Grand Theft Auto: V was the last GTA game on last gen consoles and its collector’s edition trumped the previous entries which also had an impressive package of its own. RGN fan may remember when I unboxed this marvel but in you cased you missed the video you can check it out here. Rockstar games packed this beauty with a Collector’s Edition “Los Santos” fitted cap, a bank envelope and key, a blueprint map along with Collector’s Edition DLC and steelbook of the game.

Mortal Kombat 9 Kollector’s Edition/Tournament Edition

MK9 Kollector's Editon
MK9 Tournament Edition

Netherrealm Studios and WB Games made magic when they released MK9 last gen and they believed in the title so much that they not only released a Kollector’s Edition with a limited edition statue but a Tournament Edition with a limited edition fight stick as well. The game did so well that the tournament edition sold out before the game even launched prompting the developer to re-release the MK9 fight stick with the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection.

Super Mario All Star’s 25th Anniversary Edition/ Super Mario Bros 25th Collector’s Edition Wii Console Bundle

Super Mario 25th Anniversary
Super Mario 25th Anniversary wii

Nintendo pulled out all the stops for the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros, starting the re-release of Super Mario All Star’s which contained all three of the original Super Mario Bros games as well as the “Secret Levels”. The game also came with a collector’s booklet detailing Mario’s history and CD soundtrack with music from the entire Mario franchise. Nintendo didn’t stop there as they then released an all red Wii console bundle complete with a all-red Wii-Motion plus Wii-mote as well as Wii Sports and Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Developers and publishers went all out for the games last year and this list is only all small portion of games that had a Collector’s or Limited edition package. There where more games that had a collector’s edition last gen than all of the previous gen combined, now the question is will this gen lived up to the legacy? We hope you have enjoyed this edition of “Collector’s Only” and if didn’t see your favorite games collector’s edition on the list leave us a comment below.

Tenkai Knights Brave Battle

October 7th, 2014 TENKAI KNIGHTS: Brave Battle launches in North America exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS and if you splurge for the Limited Edition bundle announced today by Bandai Namco Games you’ll get the red metallic Bravenwolf mini-figure along with the game. This Limited Edition is only available at Target though, hence the red theme. Check out the mock up art of Bravenwolf below which was also released today.

It was noted that although this is a 3DS game (and those traditionally aren’t heavily online-enabled) TENKAI KNIGHTS: Brave Battle will feature certain co-op moments that enable players to come together for action in this 2D hack n slash title. An army of shapeshifting robots are hellbent on destroying not just one, but two worlds, and thus players must enlist themselves to fight the good fight – or in this case the Brave Battle.

Bandai Namco Games also launched new trailer and screenshots for the upcoming 3DS game as seen below.

Konami Confirms – Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes 720P For Xbox ONE, 1080P For PlayStation 4

Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes PS4 1080P Xbone 720P

Just after comments were recently published by series creator Hideo Kojima that PS4 can render 1080P graphics at 60 frames per second without breaking a sweat, Konami has revealed that the Xbox ONE version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will run at 60 frames per second but will only feature 720P graphics resolution while the PlayStation 4 version of the game is sporting Full 1080P High Definition graphics and still maintaining the 60 frames per second refresh rate.

For those who are planning to play the game on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 consoles – the PS3 / 360 version has been confirmed to be running a 720P resolution at 30 frames per second refresh rate. This is makes the fifth Metal Gear Solid game the most recent in a string of titles that will be played with better graphics on PS4 than Xbox ONE supporting arguments that Sony PS4’s hardware setup is superior to Microsoft’s X1 architecture in terms of producing next-generation graphics advancements.

While this announcement is sure to fuel the fire of fanboy wars and tech debate, the publisher has spoken and the final game is indeed going to be running with better graphics on PlayStation 4. A Limited Edition Metal Gear Solid 5 PS4 was also announced to be launching in Japan called the FOX EDITION (as pictured below).

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will release on March 18, 2014 in North America and on March 20, 2014 in Europe.

Here is a link to Konami’s confirmation of these specs for skeptics.

Doki Doki Universe PS4 Review – A Journey Of Self Discovery

Doki Doki Universe PS4 Review - A Journey of Self Discovery

Doki Doki Universe starts off by introducing the main character, a robot who has been abandoned by his family for being outdated. The overall task which players will spend the rest of the game working towards is then presented, this robot must get Humanity training and pass Alien Jeff’s reports or be sentenced to de-construction (along with all other robots that share the same model number as it). “Humanity is about understanding others” is the advice players are greeted with.

Throughout the title they must be evaluated and on the way they learn about humans and this machine can manage to become more human itself. Attributes are assigned to describe the player’s play-style and actually reflect how you as a player respond and react to the game, judging your personality and other things about you in an interesting and realistic way.

At the same time players also learn about the characters they interact with, such as their favorite greeting and what “summonables” (think of this as gifts and/or gestures) they like. “Summonables” are ways to express yourself or give a helping hand to others. For example, you might give a heart to one that you share love for or you might give a plate of spaghetti to some one who is hungry. Characters will react in many different ways to what you give them, how you greet them, and many times tell you all about themselves in order for you to better learn how to interact with the place you have landed at any particular time.

Doki Beach World

Human Nature Studios lives up to their name with Doki Doki Universe which displays a wide variety of unique and deeply defined characters encountered across various planets by the main character which is named QT37765 (or QT3 for short). As players progress through the game, like I’ve mentioned above, the main character QT3 is learning what makes humanity tick and how it is and can be more human than originally expected. However, players are also able to learn more about themselves – perhaps affirming or denying beliefs they may have had about themselves before playing Doki Doki Universe.

There are quiz sections in the game that will test the player and these do a shockingly good job of telling players about themselves. I was found to be a responsible, always working person who has a need for excitement and fresh experiences and a quirky sense of humor. The fact that I spend most of my time updating RealGamerNewz with articles, working behind the scenes on our relationships with developers, and crave originality from indie and AAA games makes me sympathize with this finding. And come on, those who know me personally can’t deny I have a strange sense of humor alright! If players answer honestly to the quizzes presented they might just get accurate findings as well. In this sense, the experience is very different for each person. There’s also a psychiatrist-style character named Dr. Therapist who will give you overall evaluations once you’ve taken some of these quizzes.

Here’s an example below:

There’s also different planets you go to which is actually the bulk of the gameplay and consists mainly of meeting people and other beings and assisting them in achieving happiness (or sometimes angering them until they help you on your particular quest of attaining humanity to prevent becoming obsolete).

Here’s an example of that as well:

Beyond this, the game features a very extensive messaging system which allows you to send and receive communications with Facebook friends who play Doki Doki Universe and include animations within the text so that they read more like an emotional e-letter than a simple text. Characters from within the game also send you communications this way so you can keep in touch with them and be reminded of who is who on each planet (and particularly who misses you or wants you to pay another visit).

With all of the positive things I have to say about Doki Doki Universe, there are some negatives as well. Overall, I feel like the game did accomplish its goal and is an incredibly unique experience that should be given a chance – not just by family gamers or children but by all types. The quizzes are great, but sometimes the analysis on the player’s personality can get repetitive. Players must read the explanation for the results in order to get a unique response more often, which is cool but the repetition of personality descriptions shouldn’t be there in the first place. The decorations given as rewards for taking these quizzes are sometimes repeated as well. Having the Limited Edition does increase the variety in what you’ll experience in terms of gameplay and quizzes however.

Doki Doki Universe RealGamerNewz Review Gameplay

Players must travel all over the various planets multiple times in order to find the piece that solves each solution to the problems their newly met friends face. On the one hand it encourages exploration to have this happen, but on the other it does present a feeling of never being completely done and causes the more seasoned gamer’s OCD to itch. Characters are so bountiful and varied that it may be hard to remember them all when coming back to the game and with so many objectives spread out this could drastically increase the longevity of the game. This is less of a complaint and more of an observation though. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, and sometimes the characters players meet will leave a lasting impression and be remembered on other planets. For example hitting a beach planet after someone asked you for something that reminds them of the ocean makes intuitive and emergent gameplay which justifies this construct.

One more thing which is less dramatic but load times between menus can sometimes be a bit of a chore even on next-gen. If this is a game you’ve been wanting to try, these issues shouldn’t stop you from playing. They are not so much detriments to the vision which has been fulfilled here in an interesting way as they are ideas for improving the package in general.

Doki Sushi

Controls in the game are typically exactly what players expect them to be. The user interface does a great job of showing what must be done at all times and how to do it. Unfortunately, the one thing that seems to have issues at times is using the right analog stick for things like blowing kisses, waving, or bowing. This is somewhat important to gameplay because different characters prefer different greetings, and with it being hard to control which your main character QT3 is actually going to produce the results to greeting someone can be unpredictable. Similarly, some characters like getting picked up but must be placed back on the ground very carefully and this seems to also go outside of the player’s control at times.

Graphically Doki Doki Universe takes the art direction of purely hand drawn visuals with light-hearted animations and a beautiful selection of color palette. The soundtrack is very well fitting to the moment with mainly upbeat tunes that keep things feeling gentle for the player. The result is this game feels like a haven from the dark and negative themes found in most games these days, a sweet escape when players are not up for grinding their gears and instead want to have a refreshing and colorful experience that is other-worldly.

Doki Poop World

The title’s sound effects are sometimes indicative of humor and do a good job of fitting their role each time they are summoned. Voice acting in the game is basic but fits the part. Perhaps if the entire game was voice acted it might allow for even younger audiences to play, however this also encourages reading and parental involvement which is great for such an emotional foundation builder as Doki Doki Universe turns out to be.

Characters are unique and each have their own personality which must be understood in order to progress through the game. At times this can feel overwhelming, and the game is therefore best played in small bits as the development team mentioned in our exclusive interview with them. In the long run though, this is a really great thing and provides a living, breathing world players will want to go back to and feel a part of. There are online functions such as messaging with friends as mentioned earlier but also visiting the home-worlds of others to see how they decorated it.

Doki

Engine Performance: Very Good – No glitches were experienced during our play-through but load times could be slightly improved. Overall there’s not much to complain about when playing the title on the next-gen console.

Replay Ability: Good – Between all of the objectives that come up in the game and the trophy set, there’s a lot to do in Doki Doki Universe and players will be able to spend a lot of time if they want to without too much gameplay fatigue.

Final Verdict:

We applaud Doki Doki Universe for trying something very different than what the game industry has seen in the past decade and those behind the title for bringing it to the mainstream market where it can be enjoyed by many families and contemporary gamers alike. Exploring and being social, meeting various interesting and detailed characters (each with their own likes and dislikes), visiting unique and charming planets, and helping find solutions to many different situations that are encountered is a fun and easy going way to pass the time. This is a game that can serve as a great family title or something relaxing to play in between rounds in other more intense titles. There’s not much that really needed fixing here, but a few things noted in the review that could have made for a more pleasant experience include more variety in personality analysis of the player as well as certain controls being addressed more fluidly. Overall Doki Doki Universe on PlayStation 4 gets a 7.8 out of 10 (RGN Bronze Game Rating) from RealGamerNewz and is highly recommended for gamers looking for a very unique and enjoyable experience.
