Another week, another Total War: Warhammer trailer!
In last week’s edition of Catch-up coffee, we talked about Total War: Warhammer’s Dwarfen Axe and Hammer Units. This week SEGA has released a new trailer featuring our first look at underground battles. The trailer again features Dwarfs, as we see their High King in his throne room dreaming of vengeance. For more information on the game, check out the first in-game engine trailer and SEGA’s video introduction to Demigryphs.
Tearaway getting a new lease on life on the PS4
Media Molecule’s Tearaway was originally released for the PlayStation Vita back in November 2013, at a time when the gaming world was (unfortunately) far more focused on the release of next-gen consoles. Luckily, the game is getting a new shot at the recognition it deserved: it is being released again on the PlayStation 4 this week, with updated controls and an updated new name. Tearaway Unfolded puts you in charge of an envelope whose job is to deliver a message to you, the player. The game is often compared to Little Big Planet, so if that’s up your alley Tearaway is sure to delight!
Three new PS Vita colours coming to Japan, with one also coming to the US
Just in time for autumn, Sony is releasing the PlayStation Vita in three new colours in Japan: glacier white, aqua blue, and neon orange. The most interesting part of this news is that despite being dubbed a legacy console outside of Japan, the aqua blue PS Vita will actually be coming Stateside exclusively to GameStop. There is no news on whether any of the colours will be available anywhere else in the world. Now if I can just get the neon orange one in Canada… time for an import!
Fallout 4 voice actors record an impressive 110,000 lines of dialogue
I hope you’re not tired of hearing about Fallout 4, because I’m not going to stop bringing it up! The big news from Bethesda this week is that they have completed recording all dialogue for the game. For one, this means we are that much closer to the game’s release. More importantly, however, the whopping 110,000 plus lines of dialogue represents the huge amount of content in the game; for comparison, that is equal to more dialogue than Fallout 3 and Skyrim combined. Based on what we’ve heard so far at E3 and Quakecon this comes as no surprise, as each available companion will need their own dialogue recorded as well as characters that are simply encountered along the way.
Does any of this news tickle your fancy or make you steaming mad? Let us know in the comments! And meet us again next week for a new edition of Catch-up coffee Monday.
