“Life Is Strange” Prequel Out August 31!

I didn’t know about this until I signed into Steam a few moments ago. Apparently the 2015 adventure game Life is Strange, which was created by French studio Dontnod, is getting a prequel called, rather appropriately, Before the Storm. It was announced at E3, just a couple of days ago.

I thought the original Life Is Strange was a great game. It was beautiful to look at and the story was quite interesting. However, it had its flaws. Apart from the fact that, contrary to the marketing spiel, your choices don’t really affect the game that much, there was also the issue of the whole payoff. It depended entirely on you caring about someone that, in my opinion, wasn’t really worth caring about: the protagonist’s “BFF” Chloe Price. And now Chloe is the protagonist this time round.So I can’t really say I’m terribly excited by this announcement. It may be that this prequel makes Chloe a more sympathetic character, but it’s not going to be easy to make me change my view of her as an angry, self-centred and extremely manipulative individual. I’m actually more interested in the Life Is Strange sequel, which is also in the works. But I’ll keep an eye out for news about Before the Storm too, just to see if my expectations for it change.

Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!

Four New Ads for “Biohazard: Vendetta” Released!

The 3d-animated film Biohazard: Vendetta (aka Resident Evil: Vendetta), was released last Saturday in Japan. I have absolutely no idea how it is faring at the box office, but I came across four new short promo clips for it on YouTube today. Apparently, they were used to promote the film on Twitter (or “Twetter”, as it says in the YouTube description for each clip).๐Ÿ˜‹ Anyway, each one features a different character.

New Trailer for “Biohazard: Vendetta” Released!

A new trailer for the upcoming Biohazard: Vendetta (aka Resident Evil: Vendetta) 3d-animated film has just come out. This film centres on the heroic trio of Chris Redfield, Leon Kennedy and Rebecca Chambers, who must face off against yet another bloodthirsty horde of mutants unleashed by the new owner of not one, but two incredibly evil and powerful corporations. Yes, in the end itโ€™s basically the same old Resident Evil plot, but this film does look like itโ€™s going to be fun.

“Star Wars Battlefront II” Trailer Released!

In The Last Jedi post I wrote earlier, I didn’t mention the fact that Star Wars Celebration is currently taking place at Orlando. That means that there’s quite a bit of Star Wars news coming out now. Some of it is of little interest to me (like the trailer for the fourth season of Star Wars Rebels), but I do like watching the trailers for Star Wars games, even if I’m not likely to ever play them. Anyway, this trailer for the second Star Wars Battlefront game by EA looks great! As you’d expect for a Battlefront title, there’s a heap of action. The focus of the trailer is on the Empire and it features what appears to be a female Special Forces officer. You can check it out below.

BABYMETAL’s “LIVE AT TOKYO DOME” DVD/Blu-ray Out April 12!

This trailer was just released for BABYMETAL’s LIVE AT TOKYO DOME DVD and Blu-ray, which is coming out on April 12. It features the final two shows of BABYMETAL’s 2016 world tour: the Red Night concert, from September 19, and the Black Night concert, from September 20. The shows looked like they were amazing, don’t they? And that stage looks absolutely enormous!

There are four editions of this release; the fan club Blu-ray edition; a specially-packaged Blu-rayย edition and two standard editions, one on Blu-ray and one on DVD. I think I’ll just be getting the standard Blu-ray edition.๐Ÿ˜‹ Can’t wait to check it out!

New “Zelda” Game Out March 3!

Today (well, technically yesterday, actually), the release date for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was officially announced. It will be out on March 3, which is also the launch date for Nintendo’s new console, the Switch. As you can see in the brand new trailer above, the latest Zelda game certainly looks like it’s going to be epic! However, the Switch itself is a little bit pricey (ยฅ29,980 in Japan or $469.95 in Australia) so I doubt I’ll be able to play it any time soon. But I’m glad that the latest incarnation of Zelda has finally been fully revealed.๐Ÿ˜Š

There are several shots of Zelda in the new trailer, but I liked this one the best.

zelda_03I think Zelda looks very attractive (and a little bit sexy!) in this strapless outfit. And her expression is downright moe!๐Ÿ˜– If I were Link, I’d have no qualms about travelling to the ends of the world and fighting countless foes if she asked me to, with those eyes.

This was an interesting shot.

zelda_04Because she has her back to the camera, I thought Zelda was bathing naked for a split second. But then I quickly remembered that this is a Nintendo game.๐Ÿ˜‹

March 3 is not that far away is it? Although unfortunately I won’t be buying the game on that day, I’ll be interested to see if any figures of the new Zelda are going to be released in near future. They would definitely be worth getting!

Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
