Extinction is out now (for a silly amount of £, $, €)

extinction-out-now-1

Gargoyle-grappling action game Extinction is out now, offering large cities infested with muscular orc-a-likes and colossal ogres. It’s a bit like Attack on Titan, except the biologically exposed anime giants are replaced by armour-wearing big boys with sharp teeth and pointy ears. There’s a story campaign about saving civilians and beating back the Ravenii, as the baddies are called, alongside an “extinction mode” in which the waves of enemies never stop. Would you like to play that? Cool. Please insert £54.99 or the equivalent in a currency of your choi– hey, where are you going? Read the rest of this entry »

Attack On Titan 2 swings into the English language

Grab your grappling hook and refill your knife blades: Attack On Titan 2 is now out in English. The sequel to 2016’s game about warteens swinging around giants to stab them in the neck, which is based on an anime and manga, has kinda been out on PC since last week – but only in Japanese. Today, the English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish translations launched as an update. Now we can join in shouting while cutting into ravenous giants who have dopey grins and too many teeth.

Attack On Titan 2 is kinda almost out

Arm Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man with two giant Stanley knives and you have Attack on Titan, a manga and anime series set in a Renaissance-ish kingdom where spunky teens wielding knives and grappling hooks cut up marauding dopey giants with far too many teeth. It’s heavy on the angst and exposition but also a right lark when the warteens swing around cutting giants, and about the same is true for its 2016 video game adaptation. The sequel is out now and sold on Steam but beware: the English translation won’t be in until next Tuesday, March 20th. Click your Stanley back in. Read the rest of this entry »

Attack On Titan 2 will indeed swing onto PC

What if Spider-Man had a jetpack, even more angst, and two giant Stanley knives to hack at the necks of his foes? Well, it’d either be a return to the xXxtreme ’90s spirit for Marvel Comics, or more Attack On Titan. Koei Tecmo today confirmed that Attack On Titan 2 [official site], the sequel to their 2016 swing-o-slasher, will indeed be released on PC. This isn’t a surprise but the open question is now closed. They didn’t state platforms when they announced the game in August, see. But yup, we will again get to launch ourselves into the air to cut down terrifying man-eating babygiants with dopey grins and far too many teeth. Read the rest of this entry »

Attack On Titan 2 hoping to devour you in early 2018

attackontitan2

Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom was one of my favourite games of last year and certainly the biggest surprise. It did a wonderful job of capturing the movement and combat of the anime, which is about jetpack-propelled soldiers with swords and grapples hacking off the limbs of naked giants. Now Koei Tecmo have announced that a sequel is on the way. Attack On Titan 2 [official site] is coming early next year, and the trailer below suggests it’ll hew closely to the plot of the anime’s second season. Read the rest of this entry »
