Neptunia ReVerse for PS5 Reveals “Adjusted” Box Art; Uncensored Japanese Art Included on Reverse Side

Today Idea Factory International revealed the western box art of its upcoming JRPG Neptunia ReVerse.

The box art is similar to the Japanese original, but several “revealing” part of the costumes have been covered up. Idea Factory is quite transparent in mentioning that the artwork has been “adjusted for retail” on the official press release.

Indeed, this usually isn’t done due to a will to censor the art, but simply because this kind of detail doesn’t go down well with mass-market retailers that display them on the shelves.

That being said, the good folks at Compile Heart are still providing the original Japanese art on the other side of the reversible jacket, ensuring that you’re not going to miss out.

You can check out both the “adjusted” art and the original below.

If you’re unfamiliar with Neptunia ReVerse, which was originally titled Go! Go! 5D Game Neptunia ReVerse, is … Read the rest

Earlier today, Niantic revealed their plans for a special raid day featuring the Legendary birds of Kanto. Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno will be returning on Feb. 28 from 11 AM to 2 PM local time. It’s technically part of Pokemon Day weekend, but just on the tail end of the celebration.

This will be the second time in less than 10 days where these birds will be the focus of Legendary raids. Before this raid day, you’ll also be able to get your hands on these powerful ‘mons on Feb. 20 during Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto.

During the special raid day, the shiny versions of each bird will be available. Don’t get down if the Pokemon you’re battling in the raid isn’t shiny. You won’t be able to tell if the one you get is shiny until you get to the encounter after completing the raid.

Niantic also revealed … Read the rest

Stubbs the Zombie Returns to PC and Consoles in March

Original Xbox and PC game Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse will be coming to modern consoles and Steam in March.

The returning title will be a port of the 2005 original developed by Wideload Games with modernized controls and achievements, which were leaked earlier this month in a TrueAchievements report. It will be handled by Aspyr Media, who published the original game and ported Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy and Star Wars Episode I: Racer last year.

The action-adventure game follows Edward “Stubbs” Stubblefield, a traveling salesman during the Great Depression who was killed by his girlfriend’s father. He rises from the grave 26 years later in 1959 and wreaks havoc on the retro-futuristic city of Punchbowl, Pennsylvania by converting its citizens to zombies alongside using “zombie sputum, gut grenades, and the stunning unholy flatulence.”

The game launched in October 2005 and received a … Read the rest

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to Get River Raids, New Abilities & More In Tomorrow’s Big Update

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launched with a ton of single-player story content last year, and it was enough to keep players occupied for tens of hours before they’d finally reach the credits. And yet, Ubisoft has continued to support the game even after launch by releasing free updates that add to it even further. Tomorrow’s major update brings a new game mode, along with bug fixes and other additions.

The River Raids mode is the big highlight of the update, and it allows players to bring the raiding crews to unexplored parts of England to raid and pillage, and bring back some sweet loot and treasure. The update also includes some new skills and abilities, as detailed below:

  • Berserker Trap: This attaches a trap to your arrow, spreading hallucinatory powder. Any nearby movement causes the trap to trigger. Surprise clueless passersby!

Spectacular Microsoft Flight Simulator Video Pays Homage to Super Bowl LV Bomber Flyover

One of the spotlights of this year’s Super Bowl was a flyover performed by the US Air Force, and it happened in Microsoft Flight Simulator as well.

The historical flyover showcased the three major bombers in service with the US Air Force, the B-2 Spirit, the B-1B Lancer, and the B-52 Stratofortress.

They flew over the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida in a rater tight formation for aircraft of their size.

YouTube user FlyFS uploaded a video of the flyover reproduced in Microsoft Flight Simulator by three skilled valiant virtual pilots connected online, and you can check it out below, alongside a video of the real thing, courtesy of m171562.

You’ll notice that the position of the aircraft in the formation is different (led by the B-52 instead of the B-2), and that’s simply because the flyover in Microsoft Flight Simulator happened before the real one, so there … Read the rest

Microsoft Flight Simulator Airbus A220 Video Shows Beacon Light in Action

Today Whiskey Jet Simulations has continued its quest to show off progress on its Airbus A220 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

This time around, we get to see the red beacon light in action. For those unfamiliar, it’s a light that stay on from before engine startup to after shutdown.

Not only it helps with avoiding collisions, but it’s a clear signal for ground crews that it’s unsafe to work around the aircraft.

You can check it out below.

At the moment, we don’t have specific information on when the Airbus A220 will be released or its cost.

A few of days ago, we published our massive interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, who provided a lot of new info about the present and future of the sim.

Incidentally, if you’d like to read more about Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, you can enjoy our recent reviews of Tokyo Read the rest

Microsoft Flight Simulator F-15 Eagle Getting Major Update Next Week; F-14 Tomcat Teased

Today brought good news for those who enjoy flying military jets in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Third-party developer DC Designs provided an update on the progress of its F-15 Eagle add-on package (of which you can read our review) [sources 1,2].

First of all, we take a look at a cold and dark start for the aircraft, which will be fixed and improved with a major update coming next week.

Secondly, we hear what that update will entail in detail, including a brand new sound package.

“Today’s update is a little smaller than usual as I’m in the middle of preparing for F-15 update # 2, which will now be released late next week. The reason for this is that the new custom sound pack is now well underway and it makes sense to include it in a single, major update rather than have everybody having to
