After Ninja Gaiden 3’s ‘Consequences,’ Ryu Will Never Be The Same

Look, if you don’t want to be on the receiving end of Ryu Hayabusa’s Dragon Sword, don’t join an anti-ninja mercenary force, “mate.” That said, it looks like even the star of Ninja Gaiden 3 is dealing with the psychological impact of spilling so much blood from katana-fodder of past Ninja Gaidengames.

The latest, Tokyo Game Show-timed trailer for Team Ninja’s next action game is here, giving players a little background on why Ryu’s right arm is so bloody and so powerful. It’s a major gameplay component of the next Ninja Gaiden game and, apparently, its plot.

After you’re done watching Ninja Gaiden 3’s “Consequence” trailer, why not flip through a handful of new screen shots from the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 game, due sometime next year? C’mon, mate. Do it. I’ve got a family too, you know.

Xbox finally joins PS3 with new 3D update

The latest Xbox 360 update which will be available via the latest batch of games and most likely via Xbox Live in the coming days finally places the Xbox 360 on an even keel with the PS3.

The new update allows users to enabled 3D for use with 3D TV sets. The text reads “Enable 3D to use stereoscopic 3D in games and experiences that support it. The option also has a setting which will detect TV size and also allow users to input the size manually.

The PS3 has had these options for quite some time via one of its updates but is good news that the Xbox 360 finally recognizes 3D games; especially in light of the announcement of 3D support for Gears of War 3, Batman Arkham City and Halo CE: Anniversary. What’s interesting is the use of the words “games and experiences”, could this mean Xbox 360 will be getting 3D movies from SKY and Netflicks in the near future?

The Witcher 2 approaching a million sales

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is close to selling a million copies, a representative for developer CD Projekt Red confirmed to Joystiq earlier today. The Warsaw Business Journal reported that the studio had sold 940,000 copies of the gorgeous monster hunter RPG in the first half of 2011, following its launch on May 17.

The Witcher 2 version 2.0 update for PC should arrive on September 29, alleviating the game’s punishing opening and making other tweaks that should open up Geralt’s excellent adventure to more players. The Xbox 360 version, which will ship with the V2.0 content, is still planned for Q1 2012.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution conspiracy hints at new content

A code on the Deus Ex: Human Revolution title screen was actually part of a deeper conspiracy that, if followed to its conclusion, led to the image we’ve posted above. The prevailing theory about what it means, in combination with the day and time stamp in the bottom left of the image, is that Square Enix could announce DLC for its hit game as soon as next week.

The image was discovered after internet sleuths followed the code to GPS coordinates for Uluru rock in Australia. Combined with a password of “11m13clinic” and some Twitter help from the game’s producers, the clues eventually unlocked the image (which is probably a clue in itself).

Assassin’s Creed Revelations Single Player Impression

The Assassin’s Creed series may catch some flack for its now yearly release schedule — I’m guilty of that — but much like Brotherhood, it seems Revelations will be another sizable step forward for the franchise. Tara and Nick got some eyes on time with the game’s single player demo and share some thoughts. It looks better, has bomb crafting, and contains more of that wonderfully convoluted storyline. Desmond is acting through Ezio who is acting through Altair… what?
