We've been sent PC review codes for Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux, and while I probably should have spent tonight playing through them properly I instead spent a couple of hours making a comparison video of the original Metro 2033 and the new Metro 2033 Redux

It's only the first 10 minutes or so, but it gives a bit of indication of some of the work that's gone in, making a not-exactly-bad looking game into a fresh new one.

The video is below, both games are captured at 1080p, both on 'very high' settings, Metro 2033 has PhysX and DX11 features turned on, Metro 2033 Redux has DX11 covered on its own seemingly, but I didn't realise PhysX needed to be turned on... sorry about that.

Anyway, enjoy

Atari have released a teaser trailer for RollerCoaster tycoon World, which they say will be available for PC next year.

Atari promises that RTC World will be free of micro-transactions, a huge relief after the state of RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile. The staple idea of building your own theme parks and rollercoasters seems to still be central to the basic idea of RollerCoaster Tycoon World, but this time you will be able to share and exchange blueprints with other players through the games menu's rather than by downloading them from fansites. There will also be support for four player co-op play. Watch the teaser below:

SEGA and Sports Interactive have announced that Football Manager 2015 will be heading to PC in November this year, although no actual date seems to have been set. Anyone who pre-orders the game will have access to a "beta" version of the game, as has been the case for the past couple of releases.


SEGA and Sports Interactive have also revealed that they have entered into an agreement with Prozone Sports that aids to benefit both parties by improving the Football Manager database whilst also being used in real-world player recruitment all over the world.

NIS America have confirmed that they will be localising three more titles for the European market. The rather busy publisher plans on releasing 2D fighter Arcana Hearts 3: LOVE MAX!!!!! (I think thats enough !'s) on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita some time this year.


Undead Night In-Birth EXE:Late is another 2D fighter and will be released for PlayStation 3 whilst Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters is a visual novel and will get both a PS3 and PS Vita release. These last two are only pegged as 2015 releases.

NIS America released some new screenshots and video footage of Natural Doctrine's online multiplayer portion last week, unfortunately, as has been the case with the past few NISA updates, I've been a little slow on the uptake due to being tied up with my day job.




The video footage (below) shows off a range of co-op and versus multiplayer modes, and the word is that pretty every character you encounter (both friendly and not so friendly) will be available in the games single player too.

Natural Doctrine will be released on Sony systems on September 26th.

For some reason I thought this was old news, I think because I saw it on a retail site over the weekend.

Anyway, Fantasy Life, the 3DS RPG from Level 5, is getting a retail release on September 26th

In Fantasy Life you pick a job and play that role, for example playing as a miner, then play as a blacksmith, then a warrior, using the materials the miner found, crafted by the blacksmith to forge a weapon for the warrior.

The trailer is below, it looks like quite a charming little game

Do you really need more than the headline?

Well, in case you do, Hiroshi Iuchi, director of the classics Radiant Silvergun, Ikaruga, and the less infamous Gradius V is making a new shooter that will come out as a download on the PS4 (and possibly other consoles.

The downside is that it doesn't appear to be happening any time soon, but still, here's hoping it can live up to the hype that's already built up around it

"Here's to you Nicola and Bart, you're coming to Steam at some point in the future"

Yep, it's been confirmed that both Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain will be coming to pc via Steam. As the song goes though, there's no release date even hinted at, it'd be nice if the latter was alongside the console releases
