Zoe Quinn's Depression Quest has been released via Steam recently and Keri has delved deeper into this interesting little endeavor of a female game developer who's been in the news a lot recently. Here's a snip:

I played the game twice; the first time I responded to the choices in the manner I would have back when I was depressed. I have to admit that reading the descriptions of what I, as a depressed person, was feeling and thinking at the time, were pretty spot on with what you do go through with depression. It really hones in on how you have trouble concentrating, sleeping, interacting with others, and how your thoughts simply aren’t rational. It also nailed it rather too well how family who does not understand depression reacts to your mood. It’s more than obvious that the writers had either experienced depression themselves (something Zoe Quinn has confirmed for herself) or have known someone really close to them who battled or are battling through it.

Read our review of Depression Quest.

Once again, more remasters of last-gen console games are coming. This time, it's one that I'm not sure really matters, but hey whatever. I'm talking about Beyond: Two Souls, David Cage's/Quantic Dream's interactive drama that starred Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe.

Beyond: Two Souls - The Director's Cut is supposedly in the works. IGN spotted a listing for it on two German retail sites, both of which have since been removed. Another site, Exophase, has posted PS4 trophies uncovered. 

In other words, if there are any PlayStation 3 "hits" you feel like you might have missed, there's most likely not a point in purchasing them. A remastered version for the PlayStation 4 is most likely under way. I placed hits in quotation marks because I wasn't that impressed with Beyond: Two Souls.

Good news! A PlayStation 4 Firmware Update is today! Bad news! It's not Firmware Update 2.0, the update that will introduce direct uploads to YouTube, dashboard themes, and the new share play feature, which will allow two people over the internet to play the same game even if only one has a copy.

Instead, we have Firmware Update 1.76 to contend with today, which only introduces more stabilization features. These are important, and I assume it's part of the prep for Destiny, which releases next Tuesday, September 9th.

What's bigger news than a re-release of a re-released game? Why a trailer showing off the gameplay of a game that you've certainly seen over and over and over. To be a little fair, this re-release of Resident Evil is an HD makeover, so it's a little exciting. Check out how much it's improved below.

Resident Evil HD is set for early 2015 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.

Time for a walk in the rain. Walking outside in the rain and all I could think about is games like Resident Evil, Alan Wake and Silent Hill. The ambience around me is rainy, foggy and very much like that. The air is fresh as fuck and I'm mostly used to car fumes and the stench of city garbage and dog poo. So this is fine. 

Still looking for that valley of women. I met an old man here. He sells cheese and he says that such a valley exists. Looking for further clues.

Bloodborne, From Software's PlayStation 4's exclusive that combines the difficulty of Dark Souls with the horror genre, has an official release date for Japan. The Dark Souls developer announced at Sony's pre-TGS conference that they will release Bloodborne on February 5, 2015.

So what about the US and Europe? The studio suggested that it will release around a similar time frame in North America and in Europe, so the West won't have to wait in agony for too long, we hope. 

Vader may actually splurge on a PS4 for this game.

In an announcement that is surprising to no one, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will have a Season Pass when the game releases this October. For $29.99, the Season Pass will include 4 pieces of DLC that will add new characters, missions, and challenges. 

In addition, one set of DLC will be available for purchase at a later date, but will not be part of the Season Pass. The Shock Drop Slaughter Pit will instead be a preorder incentive from participating retailers. Here's what you can expect with the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit:

Taking place in an old Dahl facility on Pandora’s moon, players will meet TR4-NU, who once was one of Dahl’s military recruiters until he went crazy. TR4-NU is now hosting the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit and giving awesome loot to those who succeed against the moon’s toughest enemies.

The Borderlands DLC has been immensely popular in the past. Will you get the Season Pass?

As we mentioned about a week ago, Alone in the Dark: Illumination is on its way to PC and Atari has just released a teaser trailer for the survival/horror reboot. Check it out: 

 

Here's the word: "Largely recognized as the “Father of the Survival Horror Genre,” the original 1992 Alone in the Dark title became an instant classic as it forged its way as a leader in the 3D PC games category . The new PC edition, Alone in the Dark: Illumination, takes the survival horror genre to the next level with new features, including the power of illumination and a cooperative multiplayer mode. To survive, players must fight through challenging missions and dynamic environments filled with blood-thirsty beasts in order to rid an abandoned town of its mysterious curse of Darkness, and free fellow playable hero characters including the Hunter, Witch, Engineer and Priest – each armed with a unique set of special abilities and weapons."

Metro Redux released just last week, and it's already secured the top selling spot in the UK. Our own Vince liked the remastered return to post-apocalyptic Moscow, if you're curious what the fuss is about.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition is sitting comfy at number two, with The Last of Us Remastered right behind it. As long as these remastered versions of games from last-gen continue to top the charts, studios will continue to rehash out this content. But I guess we'll see what happens in the next few weeks, when the Fall rush officially starts.

Here are the current top 10 best selling games in the UK:

  1. Metro Redux
  2. Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition
  3. The Last of Us Remastered
  4. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare
  5. Call of Duty: Ghosts
  6. Madden NFL 15
  7. Grand Theft Auto V
  8. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
  9. Watch Dogs
  10. Titanfall

At the Sony event in Japan held earlier today, Capcom announced a new game in the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil Revelations 2. They provided no other info aside from the trailer posted above and their plans to release it in early 2015 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.

Come on, publishers. I get releasing titles across all platforms for 2014 but by 2015, it's time to cut the cord.

Awesome sunshine in the mountains. Feeling refreshed already. No women though. Okay, so they're not in the city and they're not up in the mountains. Hm, they must be hiding them somewhere in between. Like, a valley of sexy women... living there, undesturbed. Have to keep searching. If I don't get to touch something soft in the next month I won't be responsible for my actions.
