Throughout his tenure at Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime has been a part of the launch and success of platforms like Nintendo 3DS and Wii, next-gen handheld hybrid console Nintendo Switch in 2017 and even Super Smash Bros. Ultimate last year.

For long, Reggie is renowned as a cultural phenomenon within gaming community and was an exceptional leader among his peers. However, he has earned a well deserved retirement after years of his service to spend time with his wife, family and friends.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead for Consoles Postponed

After speculating cancellation for PS4 and Xbox One version of OVERKILL's The Walking Dead, the game is revealed to be postponed for now. 

Although developer Overkill Software and publisher Starbreeze Publishing initially managed to make fans curious to their first-person shooter OVERKILL'S The Walking Dead, it saw a poor reception upon PC launch back in November 2018.

In August, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game were delayed to February 2019 but it got delayed again. Recently, it becomes apparent that console versions of OTWD have been cancelled, only for an official announcement to confirm later that it has been postponed.

Despite the game being a mess full of bugs on PC, many players on consoles were still waiting to get their hands on it but then one PS4 user who digitally pre-purchased it, shared screenshot of a PlayStation Store notice on Reddit, thinking the game has been cancelled.

The publisher has notified us that the game is cancelled. As a result, we have withdrawn the current pre-order from the PlayStation Store and will cancel all pre-orders. You will receive a refund to your original payment source within 5-7 business days.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Missed Sales Targets

Of course, no one would like to get notified about cancellation of a full-priced game that they pre-ordered online and some were patient to wait for 505 Games to respond since players on Xbox One platform did not receive any confirmation as such.

Shortly, console publisher of OTWD, 505 Games stated the true nature of the situation on Twitter to clear things out.



RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead for Consoles Delayed Again

Presented as a visually stunning product with a gripping co-op experience, it ultimately came out nothing as originally promised. What surprises us most is that, even after the anticipated zombie-shooter was an overall disaster, people still waited for console release anyway.

Not only OVERKILL's The Walking Dead was heavily criticized for a buggy release on PC, the game even missed their initial sales target. The disappointing run of the game has made the case of not pre-ordering any game by falling for their marketing campaign.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Regina from Dino Crisis

Fans of classic survival horror series Dino Crisis can now play as protagonist Regina in a new mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Modder community seems to be in love with the newly released survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake from developer/publisher Capcom ever since it came out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as they keep releasing one mod after another.

Taking inspiration from another action-adventure survival horror franchise Dino Crisis by the same studio, a recent fan mod for RE2Make lets player take the role of Regina from the classic series in the middle of Raccoon City zombie outbreak.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Regina from Dino Crisis

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Nemesis

Created by Shinji Mikami who is responsible for the inception of fan-favorite Resident Evil, Dino Crisis also explored aspects of survival horror but players had to deal with menacing dinosaurs instead of zombified monsters chasing after them.

Series protagonist and U.S. Special Forces operative, Regina was one of the most popular female characters in video games back in 90's when the first game of the series was released and then followed by several installments in later years.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds DMX Song

Just like original Resident Evil 2, Dino Crisis 2 would let players switching control between Regina and her new teammate Dylan Morton. However, the series sort of died with the release of Dino Crisis 3 in 2003 for awful camera angles and lack of enemy variation.

Wanting for a revival of the series, fans have been requesting Capcom for some time to bring back Regina through the remake of the franchise and now that RE2 has met with immense success, they are hopeful that the studio can do it right if they really want.

Check out the demo of brand-new fan mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake by Crazy Potato but do not expect any dinosaurs though.

Regina mod is just a reskin of Claire Redfield with hair textures taken from Ada Wong character design of course. Appearance of Leon S. Kennedy are changed into her partner Dylan Morton but this one particularly took a little less work as it seems.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is solid statement of Capcom's capability of doing remake right but apparently; they do not have plans for a Dino Crisis reboot and the fan-made mod by Crazy Potato is the closest experience we can have to relive our nostalgia of the series.

Metro Exodus Out Now

Even though the game largely belongs to FPS genre, it nicely balances aspects of combat and stealth with the survival horror undertone. Classic gameplay style of the series returns once again in a sandbox exploration experience.

Archiving a golden age of gaming, SNK 40th Anniversary Collection is coming out for PS4 on March 19.

After launching a definitive collection of some of the great video games from arcade era as SNK 40th Anniversary Collection on November 2018 for Nintendo Switch, these classic retro titles are now heading towards PlayStation 4.

While setting to sail for PS4 on March 19, 2019, the bundle features a wide-array of artwork and rare promotional assets available in high-definition and nostalgic fans are sure to appreciate them for their sentimental values.

A compilation like this takes a lot of curating and research before they are all jammed into one. All the SNK titles are put together by developer Digital Eclipse, who previously worked on Mega Man Legacy Collection and the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection.

Since most of the games are from SNK years before they moved over to Neo Geo system, they do not have the edge games like The King of Fighters or Samurai Shodown had in later days. However, some of these picks are of historical importance in terms of the medium.

Another thing the studio mastered is the functionality of the Loop Lever joystick and although they are not playable in original format, their target was to replicate the experience as close to the original hardware.

Swinging her green bo staff, this deadly warrior enters the arena as an undead Revenant and in her first fight against Baraka, she goes all out on the Tarkatan tribe war chief by beating the living hell out of him with her attack moves.

Then she stabbed down his spine and slashed his throat before sticking a knife on his head. In time for performing a fatality, Jade impales Baraka with her bo staff through his bloody head, popping his left eye out and then cutting his lower body apart.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Reveal Event

She shows almost the same ruthlessness against Skarlet and Sonya Blade on two different matches by crushing their bones and ripping them apart. A great deal of her moves comes from her iconic staff weapon with occasional use of blades every now and then.

After appearing in Mortal Kombat II as a hidden fighter, Jade eventually became playable in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and almost instantly became a fan-favorite. In 2011 reboot of Mortal Kombat, her character was killed off in story mode.

However, she is resurrected by an evil sorcerer and now back from the dead to fight once again. Her arrival may also be a heralding the return of Kitana and Mileena to the franchise as well, because many character slots are still empty.

Although she was not present in Mortal Kombat X except for a cameo, developer Netherrealm decided to bring Jade back for Mortal Kombat 11 to complete their ambitious roster. Hopefully, fans were delighted to see her coming back only months before the title releases.
