Ex-Castlevania producer’s Kickstarter succeeds in under 4 hours

Bloodstained

We knew it was coming. It was always just a matter of when. Ex-Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi launched a Kickstarter for his spiritual successor, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, yesterday to the tune of $500,000, and wouldn’t you know it? It’s already a success!

Fans flocked to the popular game producer, and Bloodstained picked up the $500,000 it needed to succeed in under four hours! As of writing, it sits at a comfortable $1.3 million with 31 days remaining, and it only has stretch goals to go. The current highest has been met, but more are sure to be added.

As for the game itself, it very much looks to be in the vein of Igarashi’s work at Konami. It looks like a Castlevania game down to its gothic art, character design, and use of sprites. Remember how Mighty No. 9 was created to represent Mega Man? Well, this dances even closer to its obvious source of inspiration.

Mighty No. 9’s Inti Creates will also be leading with development.

Igarashi’s Kickstarter pitch is also as tacky as they come, something a man of his reputation could only pull off. We might never see another Castlevania game again, but I am now ready to lay the excellent franchise to rest knowing that its producer can keep its legacy alive through indie channels.

These big Kickstarters are often mirrored by another campaign during their runs, and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night shares the stage with former Rare developers as they raise money for Yooka-Laylee. It too was as success within the first few hours and is on its way to becoming one of the biggest successes in the website’s history. It’s wonderful when legendary game designers can rejuvenate their visions with the aid of fans, don’t you think?

Speaking of which, trust me when I say the first chance Hideo Kojima gets at following in the footsteps of his former Konami co-worker Igarashi, he’s going to take it. He’ll be on Kickstater within a year if he is indeed out of work.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
