Days Gone Story Preview

Days Gone offers a glimpse of Deacon's life with his love Sarah and their unlikely romance before the apocalypse.

Primary premise of the game is of course of a global pandemic that wiped out a large number of humankind and it forced Deacon St. John to struggle in a ravaged world just like any other survivors out there but beside that, something else motivates him to go on.

Wondering what Fantastic Four and Spider-Man have in common? Well, ever since the Wall-Crawler debuted as a hero in his teens, he tried to join "World's Greatest Family" showing off his talent but only ended up fighting them instead.

The family of four has teamed-up with the Webhead on multiple occasions and was even featured in many mini-series of their own. One of the writers of the game, Christos Gage (Thunderbolts – Secret Invasion, World War Hulk – X-Men) has penned one in 2010 titled "Spider-Man/Fantastic Four".

In Amazing Spider-Man #258, Spidey goes to Fantastic Four headquarter seeking help to get rid of the alien symbiote he was wearing as a costume, which later eventually became Venom. They were successful of getting rid of the suit but he was left only in his underpants.

Spider-Man had to borrow one of their costumes but since they don't have masks, the Human Torch had to improvise an idea to conceal Peter Parker's secret identity and he gave him a grocery bag to wear, thus came the identity of the Bombastic Bag-Man.

Then there was another instance following "Big Time" story arc, when the Wall-Crawler joined the team for real but then they were calling themselves the Future Foundation. This time, Spidey wore a slick-looking black and white costume.

Now, players can simply fancy themselves wearing the Bombastic Bag-Man and Future Foundation suits in Marvel's Spider-Man with the release of patch 1.14 on PlayStation Network. With the Fantastic Four returning to Marvel Comics once again, these new suits came just in time.

Metroid Prime 4 for Switch Restarts Development

Halfway through development, Nintendo announced starting over Metroid Prime 4 for Switch from Retro Studios.

Aside from getting an official announcement from back in E3 2017, upcoming first person action-adventure game Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch console had no other details revealed except for a leaked listing that says the game is coming by the end of 2019.

However, things have changed as publisher Nintendo has made another official announcement lately regarding the current development progress for the title, revealing that the studio has restarted development their highly-anticipated project.

Watch out the official development update for the game by Senior Managing Executive Officer, Shinya Takahashi below.

Whatever level of development phase they were in; the studio completely scrapped the game to start from scratch shifting with original developer of Metroid Prime series, Retro Studios and they had some pretty valid reasons for their actions.

According to Takahashi, current state of progress has not reached the standards they seek and given their knack for the highest quality in every game, Nintendo simply wants to live up to fans' expectations above anything else.

RELATED: Humble Store Brings Nintendo Switch and 3DS Games

His unexpected decision from the publisher out of commitment to quality also means that the game will not be coming out anytime soon as they originally planned and the delay could simply take another year or so but this is probably for the best for fans.

Seeing no apparent follow up on the status of the upcoming title since 2017, fans only assumed that maybe they will hear some news at Nintendo Direct Mini January 2019 or at E3 2019 but the update came before any of the above was about to happen.

RELATED: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Coming to Nintendo Switch

We have no glimpse of the gameplay or story so far to speculate anything on other than a logo that was shown in first look as a part of E3 2017, which was probably from an early period of working and no one had a clue then that everything will get rebooted halfway through.

Metroid Prime 4 will see return of series protagonist Samus Aran and will serve as a sequel to Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. On the bright side, the IP is now headed back at home with Retro Studios, who previously helmed the original trilogy.
