Shantae Half-Genie Hero videos

Shantae is back in Shantae Half-Genie Hero and it is clearly a game which deserves your attention if you like good old platformers. Contrary to the previous episodes whose art style was faithful to the 16-Bit era, this new adventure has decided to drop the pixelated visuals, but to keep them just as colorful as before thankfully. It is now available on PS4, Playstation Vita, PC, Xbox One and Wii U we've been having a lot of fun playing so far. Thanks to Shantae's many unlockable transformations, not only can you progress into the story, but you can also do some backtracking to access previously unreachable areas, which all contain various bonuses (new powers, hearts, gallery keys etc.). If you're looking for a new game to play this end of year, look no further, Half-Genie Hero is just what you need.


What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane FF15 had the best launch month of any final fantasy game in the US!!! and this performance does not include digital sales!!! (38 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @Tiz: Most big games were larger than what a standard CD-ROM disc could store, so it wasn't unusual that pirated games were lacking audio tracks or movies. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Tiz: Sega used a proprietary GD-ROM format (about 1GB discs) for storage. It did not stop piracy though as you with a bootdisc could start cd-r copies without the need to hard mod the console. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (4 Hours ago)

    Tiz That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (4 Hours ago)
