Sonic Lost World Debut Trailer


The WiiU exclusive, Sonic Lost World, doesn’t look terrible. Sonic Generations was a breath of fresh air for the series, and hopefully Sega has learned their lesson from the problems from making Sonic either rescue a human princess, wield a sword, or become a werewolf. The actual gameplay bits in the trailer reveal level design mimicking that of Super Mario Galaxy.

It’s not a reason to buy a WiiU, but it would be something to play while waiting for the next Super Smash Brothers iteration. Sonic Lost World is currently expected to be released late 2013.

Thor: The Dark World Trailer



Fangirls (and boys too) can rejoice. Your favorite bishie Norse God, Loki, is back. Not sure if that kind of audience follow NUReviews, but eh. Oh yeah, Thor’s back, yadda yadda.

From the YouTube Description:
Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery ” #83 in August, 1962.

Also, Loki kinda looks like Tommy Wiseau.

Thor: The Dark World is set to be released November 8, 2013.

‘The Wolverine’ International and Domestic Trailers Released



I liked ‘First Class’. I’m really looking forward to ‘Days of Future Past’. But all I want from this movie is to be better than “Origins”.  Oh, and the Silver Samurai to show. I want that too.

There are two trailers that have been released for ‘The Wolverine’: An US Domestic trailer and an international trailer. There are some portions that use different footage, so it’s worth checking out both.

From YouTube:
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Videos Ups the Cray Cray




Two new game videos were released today for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The first video shows off a fight against a gorilla based enemy. What interest is that the enemy’s moveset changes whenever you cut off a limb. If the enemy loses an arm, it’ll try to get Raiden into a headlock. If the enemy loses both arms, it gonna dropkick your ass. Also, an old friend returns, and just in time for Cinco de Mayo it seems.

We get to see a Metal Gear Ray  boss battle in the second video. It seems like the strategy is to avoid missile and laser blasts (very Godzilla like) while trying to cut off pieces of armor and limbs. The slow down sword frenzy mode looks to be crucial. There are a few quick time events, but nothing too extreme, meaning that the game won’t play itself.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in the US on February 19, 2013.
