Disgaea 5 Confirmed for North American and European Release in Late 2015

Tactical role-playing game Disgaea 5 will be released in North America and Europe at some point during the autumn of 2015, NIS America has announced, as reported by Eurogamer.

The game will be exclusively available for PlayStation 4, the company confirmed.

Disgaea 5 is in fact the sixth home console entry in the Disgaea series, and comes with an all new battle system called Alliance Attack, which allows players to use special attacks when the characters' relationships are correctly aligned.

In addition, the game features more than 40 races and jobs, a character stat-boosting feature based on revenge, and a visit to the Netherworld.


New Steam Controller Sketch Looks Slightly Different from Original

Steam is a service that goes nearly unmatched in the realm of PC gaming. The Valve-developed program offers gamers a myriad of different incentives for its use, namely the sweet deals that are posted up weekly. There's always a new sale or something that's making the rounds. However, Valve wants Steam to flourish and grow even more than it already is.

Valve is developing a 'Steam controller,' which will be compatible with games published on the Steam service. The controller was originally announced back in July, and was received with a lot of positivity from gamers and media alike. It would appear that Valve knows what their fans want.

At any rate, the original design was good, but Valve must think it could be better. They've announced that they plan to redesignt he controller, and have even provided a sketch so we can get an idea of what it's going to look like. Honestly, not much has changed, but maybe there's an ergonomic thing that we're missing. The sketch, which we've provided below, doesn't show the underside of the controller. The biggest change is the addition of directional indicator on the left touchpad.

Take a look at Valve's sweet, new design:

We're very excited here at Gameranx to get our hands on this new controller. While we've grown comfortable with our Playstation, Xbox and Wii controllers, it'll be interesting to see just how successful the Steam controller will be.

What do you think of the new controller? Let us know in the comments below.


Ultra SF IV : c’est quoi, ce mode Omega ?

Disponible depuis peu et gratuitement sur consoles et PC, le fameux “mode Omega” de Ultra Street Fighter IV aura déjà fait couler beaucoup d’encre. Pensé pour la détente et la créativité, plutôt que la compétition brute, ce mode permet en effet à tous les personnages de lancer des coups “exotiques” et réaliser des combos farfelus, du genre qu’un équilibrage sérieux ne permettait pas toujours. Surtout, il permet de redécouvrir le jeu sous un jour plus spontané, avec des boules de feu lancées avec les pieds (!!) ou des téléportations dans tous les sens, histoire de surprendre le plus aguerri des versus fighters. Pas sûr que cela fasse tourner Ultra SF IV jusque l’arrivée de son successeur, ni que cela enchante… : Dernieres news de jeux vidéo

Smite World Championships hosts first public showing of Xbox One version

Hi-Rez Studios has announced the Xbox One version of Smite will make its first public appearance during the Smite World Championship, which is taking place at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, Georgia on January 9th to the 11th.

Those in attendance will be able to play a pre-release version of Smite on the Xbox One in its own dedicated area within the venue. If you plan on watching the championship on Twitch, Hi-Rez will be giving viewers a sneak peak of Smite running on the Xbox One during the first day of competition.

Hi-Rez Studios says they’ve remade Smite from the ground up to deliver the same experience PC players have been enjoying for several months, while also offering a comfortable, natural feel for Xbox One players.

I’m certainly interested to see just how well Smite translates to the Xbox One as I’ve been looking to get back into the MOBA scene since the last one I really got into was the original DOTA. Yea – it’s been a long time.

LittleBigPlanet 3 gets Disney’s Frozen costumes today

For those that thought the LittleBigPlanet games had hit maximum cuteness, there’s still one other cuteness frontier for this franchise to hit. Yes, Media Molecule is introducing another franchise crossover and this may be its most adorable one yet, as LittleBigPlanet 3 is getting new content from Disney’s Frozen.

Frozen content will include costumes based on Elsa and Anna, among others. The full pack will also include a bonus Olaf costume, in case you want to build a snowman. Those looking to complement their Frozen costumes can also pick up the Free Winter Creator Kit, to give custom stages more of an icy motif.

The Frozen character costumes will be available later today for $ 1.99 a piece or $ 5.99 for the whole thing. Sadly, this is only for LittleBigPlanet 3, so owners of the previous two games will be left out in the cold.
