Many of you readers may remember Cryamore, an indie game developed by a team of well-versed developers who took to Kickstarter to fund their project. After requiring only $60,000, the team ended up  with $242k, which means fans will see many new items, features, and most importantly, the game will be released on all home consoles.

But what exactly is Cryamore? The Kickstarter page has the answer.

"Imagine the barebones gameplay of Zelda, mixed with atmospheric elements from Metroid, action done in the style of Secret of Mana, the excitement of figuring out what element to use like Megaman, hand-drawn storybook backdrops like Legend of Mana, with comedic tones and a thriving in-game clock system like Brave Fencer Musashi; that's Cryamore in a nutshell."

But there is so much more. Head past the jump for a quick synopsis of the gameplay, and head to the Kickstarter page for all the in-depth information you can find about this exciting adventure.


Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies is the upcoming installment Professor Layton series, a popular brand of puzzle-adventure titles for Nintendo's handheld consoles. Following the events of last year's Miracle Mask, Azran Legacies will be the final Professor Layton title to feature Professor Layton himself as the protagonist. Azran Legacies was shown a few days ago via Nintendo Direct, and thanks to Siliconera, we now have a better understanding of the title. Head past the jump to read all about it!


Castlevania: Lord of Shadow — Mirror of Fate is the upcoming 3DS entry in Konami's Castlevania franchise. Mirror of Fate has consistently shown us trailers displaying strong gameplay, but now we see a story trailer to go along with it. This trailer shows us the motivations of Simon Belmont, the hero of the original Castlevania, in pursuit of his missing father.

The video shows that the game features full voice acting which is none too shabby. Unfortunately, the cinematics accompanying much of it seems to drag the experience down. The trailer concludes with another display of the Lords of Shadow gameplay, ensuring us once again that it will be a fun experience. Most of this video is really hit-or-miss for me, but what do you think of the new story trailer?


Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon is coming to North American 3DS owners in later March. To prepare consumers for its release, Nintendo has decided to produce a TV commercial for the game to spread its name and hopefully increase sales. Following a commercial for Fire Emblem Awakening, it's wonderful to see that Nintendo has taken a fancy to creating commercials again, as I fondly remember them doing when I was growing up, and without a single drop of charm lost. A tip of the hat to you, old friend. Keep the good times coming.


Yesterday morning, Nintendo held another Nintendo Direct stream, this time for Japan only and based around Nintendo 3DS. The stream is all in Japanese, but it shows off Monster Hunter 4, a new game by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, and a game in which giant robots fight each other to unfitting music. But that's not all; there's still Castlevania, Professor Layton, and much, much more! The video is all in Japanese, but if you're interested to see some of what the 3DS might have in store (for Japan, anyway), be sure to check it out. Or if you'd prefer, you can find a breakdown of the stream's information right here.


February 20th brought Sony fans one of the most significant days in years, and it brought us over five pages of new content. In the stream of news, some of you readers have surely missed a few stories, so we've decided to compile every piece of PlayStation 4 news from the last two days into one convenient list. Check out the video above to see Sony's great summary of the announced software, and head past the jump to catch up on all your PlayStation 4 news! (Or check out a three-minute summary satire for a good laugh)


Yesterday's PlayStation meeting brought us a lot of big news. If you're looking for a good laugh check out the abridged version of the PlayStation meeting by VideoGamerTV. It's quite an amusing watch for Sony fans and non-Sony fans alike, so be sure to check it out if you're looking to kill some time, and stay tuned tonight for our recap of all the news that's come in over the last 24 hours.

Quantic Dream is known for pushing boundaries with their games; heck, the efforts they put into Heavy Rain is proof enough. Still, there was a very clear line between their game and reality, caused by the limits of technology at the time. However, David Cage shows us that with Sony's new console, their ability to showcase emotion has improved vastly. It's hard for me to find complaints about the demo above, and it'll only get better as they learn to use the system more effectively.

At today's PlayStation meeting, Ubisoft displayed Watch Dogs for PlayStation 4. The game appears to be heavily inspired by the Assassin's Creed franchise in style and gameplay, but it features a modern, cyberconnected world and a story taking place in the lovely city of Chicago. Check out the action-packed trailer to see stealth, chase sequences, and exploding trains! What's equally exciting is that the end of the trailer confirms rumors that Watch Dogs is coming to the Wii U, in the form of a cute little logo at the bottom of the screen. Keep your eyes peeled for more Watch Dogs information as it comes!

Knack is one of the most original titles showcased at Sony's PlayStation meeting tonight and one of the more interesting concepts we've seen in quite a while. Knack features a little robot aiding a human army against alien invaders. Knack himself seems to be made out of some sort of stone and can grow and shrink his body with more material present. You can catch the full trailer here. It's going to be exciting to see how the release of this game plays out — I know it's on my watch list.

At tonight's PlayStation meeting, we received news of a new racing game called Drive Club, which focuses on highly detailed models, team-based gameplay, and smartphone integration. You can click here for more information or check out the full trailer for the stunning game above.

At tonight's PlayStation meeting, we saw several game trailers alongside the reveal of Sony's PlayStation 4. One such game trailer is for Killzone: Shadow Fall. First we see a cinematic of the futuristic city in which the game takes place, and then we have a hefty load of gameplay. You can check out the gorgeous trailer above and let us know what you think in the comments.

Nintendo has just released a video on its YouTube account of Iwata and Miyamoto enjoying themselves in Luigi costumes. When the shenanigans are over, Miyamoto sits down to discuss many details of their goals and results for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. Much of the video was seen at last week's Nintendo Direct, but there is plenty of charm at the start and new information for those who missed it last week to make this video a worthwhile watch.

Excited about tonight's PlayStation event? So are we. At 5:00 PM CST, Sony will be holding a press event to display the future of the PlayStation brand. Many assume this means that Sony will be revealing the PlayStation 4 for the first time to the world, but we very well may see news concerning PlayStation 3 and even Vita, as well. You can catch a live stream of this momentous event right here at Gamnesia and written updates rolling out on our site as more information comes in.
