China asean expo 2018
Sunday, Day 3 of the Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2018, was the shortest day, with the entire expo shutting down at 5:00 P.M. Pacific. I arrived a little after 1:00 P.M. and even at that time a few vendors in the exhibitor hall had already begun the process of packing up to leave. Despite some people’s haste, I was able to obtain a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and Tetris for my Game Boy Color that I had decided upon buying Saturday evening. I then decided to try and find the most expensive pieces of software available at the convention, searching booths for protected cases full of cardboard boxes, certain to hold the more expensive offerings they had. I was successful, finding: Obscure, aptly titled, for $110 (PS2), Brandish for $200 (SNES), Kuon, a FromSoftware survival horror title, for $295 (PS2), Pocky & Rocky for $300 (SNES), Bonk 3: Bonk’s Big Adventure for $325 (TurboDuo), Mega Man X2 for $325 (SNES), Metal Storm … [Read more...] about Portland Retro Gaming Expo Day 3: Closing
As announced at Japan Expo 2018 by Takaya Kuroda, Yakuza Kiwami 2‘s PS4 demo is now live. The demo comes ahead of the August 28th release date of Yakuza Kiwami 2. A full remake of Yakuza 2 in Yakuza 6‘s “Dragon Engine,” Kiwami 2 is set to be the last full remake of the early Yakuza games. You may recall that Sega announced remasters for Yakuza 3 through 5 at E3 this year, but Sega later clarified, saying that the remasters would not be “Kiwami-style remakes.” Either way, PS4 owners can check out the demo of Yakuza Kiwami 2 now. Set one year later, Yakuza 2 sees Kazuma Kiryu and Haruka Sawamura aim to start a more peaceful life together. Unfortunately, they stumble into an assassination that threatens to start a war between the Tojo Clan and the Omi Alliance. Kazuma travels to Osaka in order to defuse the conflict.

Hi-Rez Expo 2018 has been a hot-bed for both SMITE and Paladins: Champions of the Realm news, and that continues into the last day of the event. In a brand new video released earlier today, developer Hi-Rez Studios delves further into the background and characters in a way untouched in the series before. In the video (seen below) we hear a lot more about the actual origin story that rests in the backdrop of Paladins: Champions of the Realm. The story tells one of a group of heroes that brought about a golden age after decades of strife, dragons, and village-burning. Known as the “Paladins,” the group would disband after peace took hold of the world. However, that peace changed quickly with the uncovering of crystals that brought a new age of power to be harnassed, utilized, and abused in the wrong hands. Crystal use were banished to create stability among the kingdom… but not everyone was on board. Some of these Paladins saw this as a way for … [Read more...] about Paladins Expands Lore with New Cinematic Video at Hi-Rez Expo 2018
