The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is about hunting monsters, and the game’s got plenty of gross, terrifying and deadly creatures to track down and dismember, from packs of dogs to the brutal Imlerith. There are no easy foes, but if the sudden glut of dedicated strategy guides in my newsfeed is any indicator, the werewolves of Velen are particularly tough. (more…)
I’ve seen a lot of chatter lately that indicates the werewolf connection in Bloodborne for PS4 is deeper than I wrote about last week, and in a gargantuan Kotaku post Patricia Hernandez catalogs the evidence. The conclusion: even though you’re killing werewolves in the game, you’re probably a werewolf yourself, too. (more…)
It’s the day before Christmas Eve, and if for some reason you were unable to find a suitable item for the werewolf fan in your life in Gift Guide parts One and Two, don’t worry. It’s not too late to avoid the shame of being someone who gives iTunes gift cards as, like, a Main Gift. Here are five werewolf gift ideas that you can obtain and deliver digitally in less time than it took you to read this.
The recently announced Castlevania reboot “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow” for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 has got among its cast of enemies a kind of batty, kind of ratty werewolf. Would you like to see some grainy E3 2010 gameplay footage where Gabriel Belmont turns his foes (including a dramatically introduced werewolf) into clouds of blood? Here you go!
Would you like to see a giant render of the werewolf model, in all its leathery-textured glory? Well, my friends, we’re two for two! Click to embiggen.
Monster costumes in May? That’s what I like to hear! On May 21st Media Molecule, the creators of LittleBigPlanet for the PlayStation 3, are releasing Monsters as two downloadable content packs. The Monsters Kit pack ($3.99 / €3.99) contains monster-related materials, stickers, objects and sounds. The Monster Costumes pack ($2.99 / €2.99 for the set, or $0.99 each) boasts four monster costumes– Zombie, Sackula, Bride of Sackula and (what else?) Werewolf. Each costume breaks down into parts so you can mix and match costume components: the Werewolf costume contains a Werewolf head, Werewolf torso, Werewolf tail and Werewolf trousers. Check out the trailer below to see all four costumes in action.
As we’ve mentioned a few times before, the forthcoming Sonic The Hedgehog game, Sonic Unleashed, will feature a “night mode” where everyone’s favourite spiky blue mammal turns into a werewolf (referred to informally as a “were-hog”). Kotaku has posted a new trailer which features extensive footage of this style of game play. Werewolf Sonic moves slower than regular Sonic, but boasts some punishing physical combat moves, which seems like it might lend some balance to a game that otherwise looks like it consists largely of running as fast as you can through beautiful terrain. Check out the video below:
Say what you want about where Sega has taken the Sonic franchise in the last decade, but this looks pretty damned cool. As previously mentioned, Sonic Unleashed is being released for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 18th 2008. An alternate version for the Wii will be released at the same time.
