What’s Up PlayStation Nation,Dragon Ball FighterZ ScanIn the latest issue of V-Jump, new Dragon Ball FighterZ information was released. Kid Buu, Gotenks, and Adult Gohan were recently adding to the lustrous roster for the highly anticipated Dragon Ball FighterZ. Thanks to ShonenGamez, for the scan with these three newly announced characters.  Details on the Arcade mode were also given.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will have a shop where you’ll be able to buy different color sets for characters and special titles using the in-game money that you earned. Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to release on January 26th, 2018.

Here is a brief breakdown on Kid Buu, Gotenks, and Adult Gohan:

Kid Buu

  • Power: 4
  • Speed: 4
  • Reach: 3
  • Technique: 4
  • Energy: 4

kid buuKid Buu has tricky attacks that make use of his elastic body. Since he has both power and speed, he can be a troublesome foe. He has unpredictable movements, such as stretching into the shape of a ball. His Meteor special attack is “Planet Burst”—that attack that destroys the earth. The opponent stands no chance once it hits.

Gotenks

  • Power: 3
  • Speed: 4
  • Reach: 1
  • Technique: 3
  • Energy: 4

gotenks SSJ3Unleash special moves with extremely flashy names one after the next! Continuous attacks that put adults to shame, with powerful special moves that don’t fail to live up to their name. Use the “Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack” to summon ghosts that deal damage upon impact. Use the Meteor special attack “Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball” to imprison your opponent within multiple rings in the shape of a ball. From there, one of your team members will jump in and start playing volleyball. Finish it off with a spike! The scenes for some of Gotenks’ special moves will change depending on the combination of team members.

Adult Gohan

  • Power: 3
  • Speed: 4
  • Reach: 3
  • Technique: 4
  • Energy: 2

Depending on the amount of the Ki Gauge consumed, the magnification of Gohan’s abilities increase will change. Gohan’s Meteor special attack is “Ultimate Kamehameha.” Neither its power or number of hits can be compared to the regular Kamehameha.

In my opinion:With the popularity with these three characters the announcement, I feel will further fighting game enthusiast anticipation on getting their hands on Dragon Ball FighterZ. Kid Buu has always been one my favorite character to use in previous Dragon Ball Z fighting games. Before the announcement, he was my most anticipated character for Dragon Ball FighterZ, so you can imagine my excitement when he finally got revealed. Hopefully they will release the trailers soon for each character, so we can get a look of them in motion.Kid buu gotenks adult gohanLet us know your thoughts in the comment section on the three new characters for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Will you being trying them out?

God of War- Be A Warrior E3 2017 Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

One of the biggest PlayStation 4 exclusive title God of War received a new trailer during PlayStation’s E3 2017 conference, giving a early 2018 release window. Kratos is set to embark on a new journey in the realm of the Norse gods and monster. This time he’s not alone as he tries to teach his son Atreus on how to become a warrior.

A Second Chance

Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.

A Darker, More Elemental World

From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.

Vicious, Physical Combat

With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.

Days Gone E3 2017 Stage Demo

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Last night at PlayStation E3 2017 conference here was an great display of games and one of them was Days Gone. Days Gone is a open world being developed by Sony Bend Studios, that offers many different ways to explore and strategize as you try to survive as Deacon against a variety of different types of enemies you meet during his journey. Days Gone will come to the PlayStation 4 exclusively at a TBA(To Be Announced) release date/window.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here are some key features on Days Gone:

Open World

Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Days Gone offers an incredibly realistic and detailed open-world experience. Vast and hostile environments can be fully explored on the back of Deacon’s Drifter bike. Abandoned vehicles can be searched for useful items. Towns and buildings can be entered and searched – at great risk. All lighting is done in real time – eye adaption technology creates a real sense of dread when entering dark buildings; day and night have an impact on the experience; weather affects enemy behavior.

Brutal sandbox combat

Exemplifying true, free-form gameplay, Days Gone offers freedom to explore, strategize and play “your way.” Every challenge can be approached and completed in an almost infinite number of ways. Many different items and weapons can be crafted using items found in the field, including brutal melee weapons and traps. Customizable weapons and skills offer true freedom in how the game is played.

Unique enemies

In addition to human Drifters, marauders and militia, Deacon must face a wilderness overrun by Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving. Freakers have needs, habits and behaviors that the player can learn and adapt to. 

Unique setting

The harsh high-desert of the Pacific Northwest offers a large variety of environments in a single geographical area. One minute Deacon can be riding through a pristine forest, a snow field, a lush meadow, and the next, be in the harsh desert lava fields. The hazardous environments, scarred by millions of years of volcanic activity, are defined by ancient lava flows, mountains, caves, cliffs and river basins, delivering a breathtaking backdrop to an equally diverse style of gameplay. Cinnabar mines, lava tube caves and small rural towns offer a variety of environments to explore.

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Media Player for the PS4 is a feature that many may or may not beware of as far as it’s capabilities but for many like myself it is an well invited convenience. Well today that convenience gets even better.As reported via the PlayStation blog. The PS4 Media Player will be updated to support 4K video and more here’s the details below:

The Media Player app is getting an update to support 4K video playback on PS4 Pro. Following this update, 4K videos in mp4 format saved on a USB stick or home server can be played on the Media Player app (remember, you’ll also need a 4K compatible TV to watch the videos in 4K).

Your home server will appear as a media option in the Player automatically, so finding your media is simple and quick. Just a reminder: USB storage that’s already been formatted as extended storage for your PS4 can only be used to save games and apps — it can’t be used to save and play videos.

For those of you that own PlayStation VR in addition to PS4 Pro, Media Player will also update to support playback of 4K VR video content. PS VR’s display resolution is 1920 X RGB X 1080, so 4K VR videos will be displayed in a higher image quality compared to HD VR videos. Capture stunning 360 degree 4K footage, and then immerse yourself in that footage in VR at home — just as if you’re right back in the scene you shot.

The PS4 Pro already supports streaming 4K video via Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu all have 4K content available. With that being said do you intend to use these features?
