Soul Calibur V – 17 Years On…

Set to be released February 2nd, Soul Calibur V will take place 17 years after the last release. Expect your favourite characters to have aged and altered significantly, with scars, added responsibility and of course, those inevitable grey hairs. Seventeen years is a long time. Your favourite characters may now have kick-ass kids that have been taught the same ways and fight for their own reasons in Soul Calibur V (you can now buy Soul Calibur V pre owned with FREE delivery). You can even expect (a popular thing in beat em’ ups) new apprentices of your much-loved characters and even a new guest character…someone you may have been playing as in one of this years recent releases. Who is this new guest character, you ask? Altair from Assassins Creed. Although Project Soul were tight-lipped on whether Altair would be selectable from the very beginning, (or unlockable on game completion) they did say the following: “Altair will not be embedded into the Soul Calibur V core story, but he is there for a reason” Ubisoft’s cloaked assassin fits Soul Calibur’s time period much better, so we look forward to finding out Altair’s true purpose. Aging isn’t the only graphical change you’ll see in Soul Calibur V. The environments look absolutely breath-taking! Fully developed in 3D and with superb use of real-time lighting and shadows, Soul Calibur V will have at last, raised the current graphical standard for a beat em’ up…something we’ve all been patiently waiting for.

Virtua Cop – Selling a Remake

I remember heading up to our local bowling complex as kids. To be honest, bowling wasn’t the main attraction to us, back then. The smell, lights and surround sound of coin operated games, lured us in. Arcade cabinets that are now classed as “classics” now taking high bids on eBay, were the standard line-up, back then. One of them was the original Virtua Cop. I can’t even begin to think of how many coins I dropped into that cabinet. But if you gave me back every last one…I’d do it all over again (or use them to bid on eBay). Virtua Cop was the very first light gun game to use the helpful targeting system. As soon as enemies appeared on-screen, they were locked-on with a green cross hair-like targeting system. This didn’t only enable the player to quickly notice enemies in awkward off-screen positions, but it also indicated when the enemy would pull the trigger. Green simply meant he was aiming. Red meant you better have at least one heart left! As well as being the best arcade light gun game graphically, Virtua Cop was also the first of its kind to offer breakable windows. It gave a much more realistic feel alongside exploding barrels and breakable boxes. Those looking to relive their police lock-on days, can easily obtain an emulator online. But did you know that the windows version of Virtua Cop was actually released under the title: Virtua Squad? It just seems very strange to establish a well known arcade brand, to then home-release under a different name. I never could understand why Sega did that… Virtua Cop was also released for the PS2 under the name Virtua Cop: Rebirth (for Japan) and Virtua Cop: Elite Edition (for Europe). Both of those editions supporting the awesome Guncon from Namco (a must for any light gun game!)....

Spectral Souls – Compatible Android Phones

Spectral Souls: Resurrection of the Ethereal Empires was a game that got the Android mobile community seriously pumped! Not only did Spectral Souls show the true graphical and sound capabilities of many Android systems, it was also the first PSP game to be ported to an Android handset. This meant the game developers were taking the Android platform seriously and not just considering the iPhone as a next-gen mobile gaming platform. Spectral Souls: Resurrection of the Ethereal Empires is lengthy JRPG that takes place in the world of Neverland, (a far cry from Peter Pan’s world of eternal youth) which sees power regularly change hands between humans and demons by relentless war. You play as warriors of the surviving human resistance (the Reformed Simba Empire) as you battle through a callous seven year war. Gorgeous visuals, a head-bopping electric guitar soundtrack and over 100 hours of tactical RPG gameplay have made Spectral Souls an Android Market must-buy. However, a large price tag has left many Android gamers in two minds on weather to invest in the RPG, due to many Spectral Souls Android handset issues. The game is obviously so demanding that it simply can’t work on every Android device (i.e. any handset with a CPU under 1Ghz will struggle). Although Spectral Souls price tag (from £9-£11) can be justified by the games quality and length, it can still be risky to some Android gamers who are unsure on how the game will run on their Android handset or tablets. For those of you who wish to know if Spectral Souls will run on your Android handsets before you purchase, here is a list of compatible phones. Although we can’t guarantee the game will run flawlessly on the following handsets, these phones have had the most positive feedback from Android gamers: Android Handsets HTC Desire HTC Desire S HTC...

Next-Gen Android Games

Android phones are seriously closing the gap on the iPhone when it comes to games. Spectral Souls is a great example of this, as it uses graphics seen on a PSP system with a soundtrack to match. But with graphical and sound ability comes hardware resources and cost. Sadly, demanding games like this won’t run on every Android device. Not every handset is technically up to the task and with such a range of Android phones, it’s near impossible for busy developers to test or pay for QA on every Android phone. With games that can’t be thoroughly tested for compatibility and with price tags matching PSN and XBOX Arcade content, the developers need helping out. This page will develop a list of demanding Android games that need urgent performance specifics. If you’ve played such a game then please leave a comment on that games page (games will have links below). Please remember to state your handset with EVERY comment you post on that games page. In fact, please make it the first thing you type in your comment. This will not only help other customers choose the right game for their Android smartphones, but also help developers iron-out handset performance bugs.
