Lost Soul Aside Looks Phenomenal

With Final Fantasy 15 on the horizon, eagerly awaiting its chance to disappoint the world after ten long years in the oven, one man with a vision has attempted to take on the behemoth, or, more importantly, use it as inspiration for a beast of his own. Below is the debut trailer for Lost Soul Aside, an FFXV inspired action game developed by a single man using Unreal Engine 4.

Wow. It is insane what one man can do, especially considering the scope of the project. While obviously early in development, the ambition here is breathtaking.

The combat, in particular, is what stands out here, as FFXV‘s combat is severely lacking in both substance and polish from what I’ve played. We can already assume that what we are seeing is only a very early rendition of his vision for combat, it already looks to be visceral, entertaining fun. I just wonder how he intends to tackle such a seemingly massive open world with a small budget and without a team behind him.

Either way, what we’re seeing so far is quite impressive and this is a hell of a way to make a first impression.

We invite you to take a look to the trailer of Lost Soul Aside above and let us know what you think in the comments box below.

Housemarque Announces New IP, Alienation

Alienation

Housemarque, responsible for the masterpiece Resogun, has announced it’s newest title at this years Gamescom. Alienation takes players on a co-op adventure in the vain of Dead Nation, but with Aliens … You get it?

What separates the two apart beyond the setting, is the new ‘help your team’ or ‘go rogue’ options it seems to present. This could mix up the gameplay quite a bit, creating an entirely new set of rules for how a game like Dead Nation would’ve been played.

Here is the trailer in its entirety for your viewing pleasure.

I enjoyed Dead Nation, though I felt it didn’t really have enough character or staying power to offer up a rich experience I’d go back to. In other words, it wasn’t Resogun or Super Stardust HD.

Alienation, I hope, will break the mold of Dead Nation and offer us PS4 veterans a chance for some jolly cooperation, or personal gain via betrayal.
