Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault Trailer
Players Who Pre-Order will Receive “Fox” Company for Free
SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today announced a pre-order incentive for Company of Heroes 2™: Ardennes Assault consisting of an all-new Company known as “Fox” Company. This band of Rangers is led by Captain Monte Durante and sits alongside the three Companies already included in the game; Airborne, Support and Mechanized. Players can choose up to three Companies on a campaign play-through; each with its own unique play style, specializations, abilities and Officer.
Captain Durante will have his own backstory for players to discover throughout the campaign, which will allow players to experience Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault from a whole new perspective. The “Fox” Company DLC will feature unique mission and company reports, thus representing a significant amount of additional gameplay options and outcomes, all free for those who pre-order.
“We are really excited to offer such a substantial piece of content to those who pre-order!” said Alex Price, Brand Director at Relic Entertainment. “There are a huge amount of playthrough options for Ardennes Assault already, but the inclusion of Fox Company adds even more variety to the game.”

The Game Bakers’ delicious tactical RPG SQUIDS Odyssey has just gone on sale in Nintendo’s eShop — and it’s a big one.
Through October 30, SQUIDS Odyssey for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS is marked down 50%-60% in every territory where it’s available. That comes out to $5.99 in North America, £4.99 in the UK, €5.99 in other parts of Europe… you get the idea. With a sale like this, there’s no better time to fling some Squid!
The Squids’ lush underwater kingdom is under attack by a gang of cranky crustaceans. In this quirky tactical RPG that has been described as “Angry Birds meets Final Fantasy Tactics,” the heroes’ squishy bodies become their best weapons: simply stretch a Squid’s tentacles, aim, then let go to fling it into an enemy. While the ragtag Squid army swims through four kingdoms trying to halt the threat, 90+ turn-based missions, 15 customizable Squids in four classes (shooters, scouts, troopers, and healers), and dozens of stat-building helmets to collect and equip make SQUIDS Odyssey a casual role-playing game that’s heavy on strategy and even heavier on charm.
But wait, there’s more! Since SQUIDS Odyssey is a beefy game (~15 hours of gameplay plus a killer Pro Mode that doubles the experience), the developers have whipped up a complete strategy guide to help players master the game: http://thegamebakers.com/squids-odyssey-guide-book
BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. is throwing down with the release today of its new free-to-play collectible card battling game, Outcast Odyssey, available now on iOS and Android platforms.
Mixing the careful strategy and balance of card-based combat with the thrill of RPG-like dungeon crawling, Outcast Odyssey features an expansive fantasy world of secrets and dangers to explore. Players can take on the single-player campaign, battle online in competitive multiplayer, and form guilds and make trades with friends, all while collecting new cards to construct the ultimate deck.
"The best card games have built-in mechanisms for evolving over time, and we wanted that development philosophy to carry forward to the look of Outcast Odyssey as much as fun and feel," said BANDAI NAMCO Games’ Producer, Joe Riego. "For that, we went straight to the indie art scene of deviantART and appealed directly to the cutting-edge talents we most wanted to work with. It’s allowed us to imbue the game with a striking design scheme that can grow and mature over time."
Outcast Odyssey debuts featuring the unique creative voices of two comic book artists - Warren Louw and Chuck Pires - each bringing their own distinct, bold, character-driven styles to the hundreds of beautiful, hand-drawn cards available in the game at launch. These card designs are brought to life with a powerful suite of visual and parallax effects for maximum impact.
"The experience has been incredibly fruitful, and we’re excited to partner with a variety of up-and-coming artists on future releases of Outcast Odyssey and our other mobile titles,"Producer, Joe Riego added.
Outcast Odyssey is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at http://www.AppStore.com. For more information on BANDAI NAMCO Games’ products, please visit http://www.bandainamcogames.com.

White GTA V PS4 Bundle Announced for EU
If you’re looking to jump into next-gen with a PS4 and love GTA, this may be the bundle you’ve been waiting for. No price has been announced yet but you can expect us to update this post with the official price point by the end of the day. GTA V releases this November on PS4 and Xbox One.
An incredibly awkward unboxing at that.
Google Nexus Player was just announce and boy does this look like a step towards the Gaming Arena for Google with a separate purchasable controller and a somewhat powerful system.
Google already has free multiplayer and syncing abilities as well as a leveling up system for all gamers for Developers that support this. As I have been telling people the last two years it is only a matter of time before Google drops bombs on Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo.
