HBM News: 6/19/16 - 6/25/16

It is once more time for the news. Since it's post-E3 it was only a trickle of news compared to last week, but it's still more than usual. So, here we go.

South Park: The Fractured but Whole: A little more news was given, specifically that you can be a girl this time. Good, because Stick of Truth didn't.

Street Fighter V: Capcom showed off all the DLC Battle Costumes for all currently available characters (and Ibuki). There will also be some new stages... which are actually previous stages at different times of day. They'll all be available to buy with the Story Mode update.

Shovel Knight: We now know the Specter Knight update will be coming soon. It'll also be coming with one of the other upcoming modes, either Body Swap mode, or 4-Player mode. So, yeah.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2: New features have been revealed; You can "infiltrate" various factions, for example, Frieza's Army, and build your way up the ranks. In the story, the changes made to time are described as more "chaotic," and both of Cooler's forms have been officially confirmed.

Hyrule Warriors Legends: A trailer for the Link's Awakening pack, showing its' new content. Marin is going to be playable, with some kind of... bell weapon, I guess. It can also summon the Wind Fish for special attacks. Linkle is also getting a new weapon, in the for of boots. Are they supposed to be the Iron Boots? I dunno, they didn't specify. And of course, the obligatory Adventure Mode map.

So. that's this week's news. HBM, signing out.


HBM News: 6/12/16 - 6/18/16 (Week of E3 2016)

I'm sorry this post was late, I was busy. Anyway, last week was E3, so most of the news was E3 related. I decided to combine my news post with my usual annual E3 post, because those usually basically end up being news posts anyway. Anyway, time to finally do this news.

Also, as for the conferences, I only watched Sony and Bethesda's. Sony's was almost as good as last years (a 9 as compared to a 9.5), and Bethesda's was solid, but the Dishonored 2 section at the end really dragged on.


HBM News: 6/5/16 - 6/11/16

Well, it was pre-E3 week, and we ended up getting a lot of news.  So I'll actually get to do a longer post for once. Good.


HBM News: 5/29/16 - 6/4/16

It is once more time for news. And again, there's not much news. I'm used to it at this point.

Street Fighter V: So, a character was supposed to be released this week... but wasn't. It turns out, Capcom delayed the character that was supposed to come out this month so they;re now coming out with the Cinematic Story.

As for the character them-self, it's Ibuki. She now has a schoolgirl outfit with ninja armor as her default costume. Her V-Skill is a charge-able burst wave that can push the opponent away, her V-Trigger is a bomb that can be used to do OTG combos, and her Critical Art has her launching the opponent in the air, and using... a Rasengan, I guess. Also, she's going to come with a "new" stage, Daytime Kanzuki Estate, basically a daytime version of the pre-existing Kanzuki Estate stage.

Pokemon Sun & Moon: So, the player characters designs were revealed, along with confirmation that you can customize yourself again. The professor was revealed, Professor Kukui, who's a total dude-bro. His assistant is Lillie, a blond girl described as "mysterious." One of your character's friends is Hua, a tan kid that loves food. You can scan QR codes to discover Pokemon. There's a new Pokedex type for Rotom, and the legendaries were named/typed (Solgaleo, Psychic/Steel & Lunala, Psychic/Ghost).

Shovel Knight: We got some news regarding upcoming DLC, specifically that King Knight and Specter Knight modes are in development, and the Gender Swap mode will launch alongside one of those.

So that's this week's news. Let's hope for some more soon.

HBM, signing out.
