New Biomutant Gameplay Teaser Unveiled

THQ Nordic has released a new gameplay teaser for their upcoming open-world, action-RPG, Biomutant. Although brief, the trailer lends a lot of insight into what players can expect when they get their hands on the game this year.

The trailer focuses on two key aspects: traversal and combat. Throughout the course of the video, the player controlled character (a raccoon with bionic and mutant powers) uses a variety of gadgets to move around the environment. The two highlighted the most are several forms of a grappling hook and a set of glider wings. These options allow for the character to move quickly around a large open-world filled with many different environments.

The combat showed off focuses on four key elements. Melee combat shows the character using a blade to perform various combos both in the air and on the ground. Dual-pistols allow for ranged combat, while different mutations allow for offensive and defensive options. The final combat mechanic showed off were various mech-type machines. Early in the trailer, we see the raccoon controlling a hand that is firing projectiles from a finger. The end of the video shows a quick glance at a full-on mech-suit.

Biomutant is set to launch for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2018. Check out the gameplay teaser below:

Mutant Football League coming January 19th

Blood. Bones. Fangs. Touchdowns? Mutant Football League, the spiritual successor to the 1993 Sega Genesis cult classic Mutant League Football, is finally being released on PS4 and X-Box One. The NFL Blitz style 7 on 7 football starring insane characters will be smashing its way to your consoles on January 19th. Press release is as follows:

MORTON GROVE, Ill. – Jan. 5, 2017 – After receiving heaps of threatening letters, angry late-night phone calls, and one unmarked box of manure (wrapped in holiday paper, natch), indie game developer Digital Dreams Entertainment has finally relented and will release Mutant Football League™ for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners on January 19th, 2018.
The bloody-fun, next-gen spiritual successor to the 1993 Sega Genesis classic Mutant League Football will invade the Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, and spark new debates about soft balls, shotgun hits, and proper decapitation protocol.

Football fans and gamers will experience deep strategic 7-on-7 gameplay, bone-crunching and tooth-shattering hits, plus a roster of comical ghouls delivering tongue-through-cheek humor. Oh, and-of-course blood. Lots of blood.

Mutant Football League features legendary voice-over actor Tim Kitzrow; best known for his work in one of the great classic sports games of all time, NBA Jam, with such memorable sound bites as “He’s on fire!” and “Boomshakalaka!” A few MFL refs were bribed to guarantee the commentary of Mutant Football League on PS4 and Xbox One remained as foul-mouthed as the original smash hit PC version. It’s like Conker’s Bad Fur Day for sports fans!  However, don’t worry… there is an option to turn off the expletives in case small children or Republican senators are in the room.

Mutant Football League for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launches on January 19th, 2018.

I for one have many fond memories of Mutant League Football and cannot wait to sink my claws and tear this one limb from limb.

Trophy Whores 331 – Gods of War Rocket Up the Download Charts

Alex and Roberto help ring in the new year by looking back at 2017 and forward to 2018.  Like two killer whales at Sea World, they’re itching to frolic in the deep blue ocean of video games that promise an exciting 2018.

Better yet, we’re getting at least one more God of War game before the series pays homage to “The Fonz” and goes airborne over a particularly dangerous aquatic predator.  It’s a shark.  Sony Santa Monica is dangerously close to jumping the shark, and Alex proposes that maybe Kratos should ride off into the sunset after his latest adventure.
