Now that we know there is a new Yakuza game in development for both the Playstation 3 and Playstation 4, SEGA has started two campaigns to get new faces into the unannounced title. They are doing auditions for men and sexy actress popularity contest for women. I can hear the screams of Tumblr feminist already.
For men they are looking for males over 20 and to be a in-game model in the next Yakuza title. SEGA says they want a guy that has a sense of ‘violence’, ‘fortune’ and of course ‘spirit’. But if you don’t make it into a in-game model there is also a spot with your face on hostess signs. If you get chosen in the audition you will be able to be character model in game, but also win a Playstation 4 and Vita, including the new Yakuza game when it comes out.
But if you only get your face on host club signs you won’t get as much as the model characters. You get a copy of the new Yakuza game and either a Playstation 3 or Playstation 4. Who would choose a Playstation 3 over a Playstation 4?
As for women…
The upcoming Media Vision game ‘Shining Resonance‘, a new entry to the long-running Shining series will allow the main character to turn into a dragon and, along with a band of companions, fight using instrument-themed weapons. But how does the combat work?
It’s time to end our week-long Sonic the Hedgehog 23rd anniversary celebration with 23 Sonic facts. Since Sonic the Hedgehog is quite a popular character you might or might not have read some of these. Let’s get started!
Its hard to believe that games actually go through a certification process before you buy said product. I want to know who approved games like Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, but that isn’t what we are here to talk about. It seems Pier Solar HD has hit another bump in the road when they missed their certification from Microsoft.
“Microsoft already evaluated Pier Solar as well but we failed some internal requirements on the certification and we’re correcting them for the next submission. This also impacts Wii U and PlayStation(s) submissions since we want to send it as clean as possible so that we don’t get another failed certification. Luckily, the process doesn’t take as long as we thought, so the perspectives to getting a release date gets better. As soon as we’re certified on all platforms we’ll announce the date and put it on the street.”
Solar Pier HD is headed to Linux, Mac, Windows, Ouya, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Wii U, and of course the Dreamcast. It seems only consoles will be affected by the delay.
Atlus announced today that Mad Catz are releasing a arcade stick based on Atlus’ upcoming fighting game Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. They say that the Persona development team supervised the creation of the sticks.
The sticks are supported on both Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 consoles. It will also be easy to open and support customizable faceplates and buttons. No release date or price point announced yet.
This week on The Weekly Five we will be looking at our most nostalgic Sonic the Hedgehog video game moments as part of our Sonic the Hedgehog 23rd Birthday coverage. Like always, if you guys want to share your nostalgic moments do so in the comments! Now on to the list!
Its not secret that Football Manager is a highly successful series in the UK. Everyone knows that. What is shocking is that this yearly updated title has broken a new record. Maybe its that World Cup fever that has everyone wanting to manage a football team.
Football Manager 2014 has broken the record of most weeks spent at the number one spot in the UK PC game charts. It has spent a total of 22 weeks at number one – 18 of those being consecutive.
Football Manager 2014 hit PCs world wide last year on October 30th, but that isn’t stopping people from buying copies this last week, when it topped the full priced PC chart in the UK once again beating out new titles like Wildstar, Wolfenstien: The New Order and even EA’s cash crop The Sims 3.
Seems that Atlus isn’t done announcing new titles, they have just opened a teaser site for a new game. The pages title says: “This is not broccoli #ATLUS.” So what could it be?
Lots of people seem to think that this is going to be a new entry to the long running Etrian Odyssey franchise. After the jump we have some assets ripped from the teaser page.
No doubt that handheld gaming has increased in cost over the years. One of the things that always surprises me is how slowly software prices have risen as well. Atlus seems to have been trying to add a premium price tag to their titles, starting with last year’s 3DS exclusive Shin Megami Tensei IV. They justified their price tag due to the fact that it was translated and released so quickly (2 months after its Japanese release).
It seems that they want to continue this trend with the upcoming Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth since Amazon and Gamestop have both listed the title for $49.99. Speedy translation? This title took 4 months, 50% more time to be brought over than their last premium priced title, Shin Megami Tensei IV. Shin Magami Tensei IV also came in a nice limited edition box set if you bought a first print run of the game. That included an awesome 176 page strategy guide with concept art, eight track CD and a collectible slipcase while Persona Q only has 12 tarot cards.
What do you guys think? Is $49.99 too steep for any Nintendo 3DS game? Let us know in the comments.
This week we are chatting all about SEGA/Atlus’ presence at E3 2014. We talk all about the SEGA software including what we thought about our hands on with Sonic Boom video games, Alien Isolation and even the Nintendo published Bayonetta 2.
