Dodgeball Rising Can Dodge a Ball

Happinet and Asakusa Studios have announced a new sports game, randomly set in the Edo Period, that looks rather charming. In Dodgeball Rising, players will control a team of kabuki, ninja, samurai, sumo wrestlers, and sushi chefs as they engage in ferocious and fiery dodgeball battles.

Players choose their warriors, each with their own skills and abilities, and enter the Ultimate Imperial Dodgeball Tournament. Each character has their own story-line, during the tournament, which serves as a campaign mode. Offline play is available, as well, with up to 6 players able to join, with AI bots. Dodgeball Rising will appear on Steam’s Early Access program for PC on December 14th, 2017.

Gal*Gun VR Now Available

gg

If you already know what Gal*Gun is, then this story won’t surprise you. Gal*Gun VR is now available on Steam for use with the HTC Vive. Gal*Gun is a popular Japanese rail shooter, that involves you, the protagonist, shooting a pheromone gun gifted to you by Cupid at various anime girls in an attempt to make them fall in love with you. It’s just as ridiculous as it sounds.

Now, the addition of VR adds an entirely new level of ridiculous, as in addition to the standard rail shooter VR experience, you can also move your head around in an attempt to look up their anime skirts, as well. Japan… you’re crazy. I love you.

A New Bubsy Game?

In what is most certainly not something anyone was expecting, developer Accolade, which closed their doors in 2000, has just announced a new game for their… popular character, Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back. The last Bubsy game to be released was in 1996, with Bubsy 3D. To say it did less than great would be an understatement.

Bubsy: the Woolies Strike Back is an all new Bubsy adventure featuring Bubsy in a bevy of exotic locations as he travels the planet looking for the beloved Golden Fleece. Bubsy must use all of his classic moves and a few new ones to dodge and out bobcat a battalion of Woolies, sharks and bess, not mention the gnarliest UFO bosses to ever grace a Bubsy adventure.
