Robotic Gaming Monthly - PAX, Gamescom, and Sad Signs O' The Times

Pokkén Tournament

Yep, it's a Pokémon/Tekken hybrid from Bandai Namco. Yep, it really does seem like a silly idea. And yep, I will totally still play this game if they include Scrafty and Hawlucha (assuming it goes to home consoles after Japanese arcades, of course).

Assassin's Creed: Rogue

Because Ubisoft doesn't want you to go a year with just one Assassin's Creed game now, here comes Rogue, which in contrast to Unity will only be heading to 360 and PS3 instead of any next-gen platforms (no, not even PC). The game involves a rogue Assassin turned Templar and will involve Arctic naval combat (like in Black Flag) during the Seven Years' War in Colonial America, leaving gamers everywhere to wonder why the [BEEP] the last-gen consoles are getting the infinitely cooler AssCreed game.

Persona 5

It may just be an anime sequence, but I know at least one of you will bug me if I don't include it (rightfully so), so enjoy.

Donut County

...It is a game called Donut County where you play as a freaky Katamari Damacy-style living hole that swallows up everything it can. Do I really need to explain the appeal of something like this?

Let It Die

...In retrospect, maybe highlighting this game (and particularly this trailer) isn't the smartest move after some of the topics we discussed today concerning potential violence, but I trust Suda 51 to treat something like this with more tongue-in-cheek black comedy that's less awkward. At least god, I hope it turns out okay...

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

...Yes, we get both the return of Sierra and the return of the hit arcade shooter Geometry Wars in one package. And thus the public rejoiced.

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell

So the Saints Row saga may be wrapped up, but why not have one last bit of standalone DLC to help go out with a bang? And given how the series has escalated over the years, are any of us honestly surprised that said bang involves Johnny Gat fighting Satan? Also, I will bet even money on a moment where you get to beat Hitler to death with a giant dildo. You know they'll do it.

Massive Chalice

...It was a tough call between this and Costume Quest 2 for the Double Fine game to highlight from PAX Prime, but Massive Chalice is still no less worthy of our attention. Double Fine's take on an epic strategy game inspired by Game of Thrones is shaping up to be rather incredible, even if it won't have the incest.

Ray's the Dead

Yes, they had a second (successful) Kickstarter for this game. You may question a second Kickstarter campaign, but I dare you to question any game where you get to control your own '80s zombie army as if it were an even more comedic version of Return of the Living Dead.

Shadow Realms

So BioWare finally lifted the curtain on their brand new RPG, a 4-versus-1 multiplayer game where a party of four traverse a bunch of obstacles set up by another player controlling an evil lord, which I think kind of sounds familiar. Nonetheless, modern fantasy is always a plus.


And thus we reach the end of another edition of Robotic Gaming Monthly. Sorry we didn't have the Retro Game Showcase this time around, but after thirty trailers, I kind of figured that was enough for now. Thanks for dropping by, feel free to leave any comments offering suggestions, questions, additional discussions on what we talked about, or messages about how much we suck (something sadly tells me we'll be getting more this time around) and remember, Danganronpa 2 comes out today, so don't expect to hear from me for about a week! See you next time!
