Arcade BlazBlue Catches Up

An update to the arcade version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift will make an appearance at the Amusement Machine Show. Valkenhayn, the second downloadable character to be announced, will also be playable at the event. The game will be dubbed BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II, the first time an updated Arc System Works game will contain a number. Most likely, the updated version will include console downloadable characters, rather than balance changes and new features like those in Continuum Shift. More after the jump.

Update: Vanquish Demo in US

Previously announced for Japan, Vanquish’s demo will be coming stateside August 31. According to Sega community manager Julian Mehlfeld, the demo will include the same level that players were able to enjoy at E3. In addition, it will include various difficulty levels and a tutorial mode; hopefully this means that players will be able to enjoy the high-speed combat and not fling around the stage wildly instead. On top of that, we’re going to get it two days before Japan! Scrap those plans to make Japanese PSN or Xbox LIVE accounts.

Final Fantasy XIV Will Limit Play Time

Massively multiplayer online RPG (MMORPG) Final Fantasy XIV will include a fatigue system that will prevent players from gaming into the long hours of the night. This new system will force players to play for a shorter period of time, allowing casual players to be on par with hardcore gamers. It will provide full experience for only eight hours a week. Once the eight hours are done, the amount of experience gained will decrease over seven hours. After that, the player will not gain any additional experience. The idea of playing an MMORPG for only eight hours a week may turn fans away from Final Fantasy XIV.
