The game was successfully funded by a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign in early 2012, and in August of that same year Continisio submitted it to the Greenlight program.read more

    An anonymous reader writes "Today at PAX East, Firaxis announced Civilization: Beyond Earth. It's a new Civ game inspired by their sci-fi strategy classic Alpha Centauri. Beyond Earth is currently planned to launch this year on the PC. According to Game Informer: 'Beyond Earth presents an opportunity for Firaxis to throw off the shackles of human history and give players the chance to sculpt their own destinies. Civilization games typically have a set endpoint at humanities modern age, but Beyond Earth has given Firaxis the opportunity and the challenge of creating a greater sense of freedom.

Both versions will heavily promote online play with friends through Nintendo's Miiverse, as well as through random matches with other players. Nintendo also says it will monitor the behavior of online players, and will punish those who are a hindrance to others, including those who leave matches early, bully others, cheat, etc. Skill-based matchmaking will also be incorporated to keep things fair and fun.

With the DLC, Snoop will narrate your fights, call in your killstreaks, and alert you to enemy activity. "What interests me most about the project is that my voice can be connected with a game that's so hip and so hood," the artist said in a new promo. "It's associated with greatness."

  • Rain World is a 'survival platformer' for Vita & PC

    15 Apr 2014 | 1:45 pm
    Rain World is "a survival platformer" set in an abandoned industrial environment. The world has been ravaged and intense rains make life as we know it impossible. Players control a slugcat who must hunt and collect enough food during the dry season--to survive another cycle of hibernation. Of course, there are other creatures that have the same plan. Originally funded through Kickstarter for PC and Mac, a new update (via Eurogamer) reveals that Adult Swim has since picked up publishing rights, meaning a Vita release is also coming. "They are 100% here to help us take Rain World to the next…

    Michael Ancel, director of Ubisoft's Beyond Good & Evil 2, teased new concept art for the game's main character Jade during a livestream of Rayman Legends. While the sequel to this original Xbox title first had a trailer released five years ago, word since has been scarce. However, it appears that the title is finally in production as the developer has revealed that it will be released on PC, Playstation 4, Wii-U, and Xbox One. I love the Rayman games, but would love to see this title get made even more.

  • 'David' Review - These Are The Daves I Know, I Know

    Shaun Musgrave
    15 Apr 2014 | 6:40 pm
    David [$0.99] is a curious little game. Recently, due to the release of the beautiful Monument Valley [$3.99], I've talked a bit about experience-focused games versus mechanics-focused games, but David seems to have one foot planted firmly in each camp. It's about as minimalist as one could possibly imagine, yet the most immediate comparison in terms of gameplay is considered a technical masterpiece for the hardware it runs on. The appearance of the game is incredibly simple, and its gameplay is as basic as moving, jumping, and shooting, but it still somehow manages to create a surprisingly…
  • ‘DJMax Technika Q’ Review - Dropping The Beat On iOS

    Connoisseurs of specialized arcade cabinets have probably heard of DJMax Technika , the South Korean touch-screen based rhythm game. Being an arcade music game with touch controls, an iOS version would seem to be a natural fit and that’s exactly what we have with DJMax Technika Q[Free]. With an incredibly fine-tuned and enjoyable rhythm engine, Technika Q is unfortunately hampered by the bloated systems placed on top of its core gameplay. For fans of the title, Technika Q plays nearly identical to the actual arcade cabinets with touch controls that do a great job matching the original…
  • Watch a Lego Robot "Play" the Free to Play 'Jurassic Park Builder'

    Some of the most popular free to play games are criticized for being mindless tap-fests, devoid of strategy or meaningful gameplay. And, for many free to play games, it's a valid criticism. There's an artificial sense of progression from opening up a game, making a few taps and collecting in-game rewards, and doing it over ad infinitum as you work towards whatever "goals" the game has laid out for you. In fact, it's the sort of "gameplay" even a robot could handle, as proven by Uli Kilian who built himself a robot out of Lego that could tap away at Jurassic Park Builder [Free] and earn him…

  • CCP Games Records FY13 Loss

    15 Apr 2014 | 2:18 pm
    CCP Games recorded a loss of over $21 million for financial year 2013, the company announced today. This is a major decline from a profit of $4.6 million in the previous year. Revenues for the company rose to $76.7 million from $56.3 million. So what caused the massive drop for 2013? According to CCP, a massively increased R&D budget. That budget climbed from $16.5 million in FY 2012 to $56.5 million in FY 2013. The costs are likely related to the development of Eve: Valkyrie, Eve Online, Dust, and costs related to the now cancelled World of Darkness MMO.read more

    When it comes to big wargames, it's tough to strike a balance between "big enough" and "playable in a sane amount of time". Columbia Games' elegant block system plays well at a small scale, but will have its limits tested with Victory in Europe, a game that will cover the European (and West Asian, and North African) aspects of what will hopefully be the biggest war humanity has ever gotten into. The Kickstarter project promise is for a game playable in a few hours. I've played my share of wargames that would take longer than the actual war they represent, but I'm confident the veteran game…

    Jeremy Hill

    I had my doubts about Family Guy: Quest for Stuff when it was announced. I immediately pegged it as the Family Guy version of The Simpsons: Tapped Out. After all, it shares the same basic premise of a city being destroyed and you having to rebuild it. I wanted to give this game a fair shake before giving my opinion of it. I think enough time has passed for me to say Family Guy: Quest for Stuff isn’t a game. Its formula can be described as play-to-wait or pay-to-play. No matter who you are, you will fall into one of these categories. We are all too familiar with this system by now. The…

It was a clear signal that this is a company on a major growth trajectory because they solve challenges that so many teams face when collaborating via mobile devices. We immediately saw the benefit of a mobile-first, cross-organization communication app helping an increasingly dispersed workforce stay connected on tasks while effectively…

    Hi everyone ... It's been awhile since I blogged -- Microsoft Ventures is taking up all my time as we've been getting the team up and running, getting our accelerators in sync - etc ... Building a global team is hard enough, but imagine building a team across the globe, different personalities, different cultures, different geographies, and one single curated culture --- It's no easy task, but it's something I love doing!So I've made a promise to myself that I'd write more.  I have so much to talk about, from all the various startup ecosystems, the differences between them --…

    Entrepreneurship is an increasingly global phenomenon. We know that the barriers to turn an idea into a business have never been lower. At the same time, entrepreneurs at any maturity level still need a lot of assistance, and there are more resources than ever available to help them. As ecosystems become more fractured, paths to innovation shift and evolve, often requiring support tailored to that particular market to spur meaningful growth. To meet these growing sets of needs across mature and emerging markets alike, we are strengthening the resources we provide entrepreneurs. Today,…

    North Wind: Trill of Consciousness by Henry Gosuen is a creative take on the platform exploration genre. You control the tiny hero named Dir who moves through a blocky world of spikes and obstacles and maze-like puzzles. Instead of scrolling levels that keep pace with the protagonist, though, you do all the swiping yourself from a stationary point of view. It's a bit like Office Rush, Rooms or Continuity, only with a decidedly sweeter metroidvania feel.

According to Titanfall developer Jon Shirling, the new Microsoft API isn't needed to improve the game's performance, and updates coming down the pipe should improve Xbox One play in the near future. This confirms what many expected since DX12 was announced — the API may offer performance improvements in certain scenarios, but DX12 isn't a panacea for the Xbox One's lackluster…

Before Chaos’s most recent rebirth, it was a 1985 ZX Spectrum game, and before that it was a boardgame, but only a handful of British 30-somethings will recognise this as a sequel. For most, Chaos Reborn is new, even if its rules are 30 years old. In Chaos, wizards take turns summoning creatures and launching attacks from a deck of spells.

China is a huge, intimidating territory for your average studio, but Eutechnyx CEO Darren Jobling is a great believer in its potential. And he’s not the only one – figures from the Chinese government suggest that next year it will overtake the USA as the world’s largest consumer market, and a slew of western companies are looking east to capitalise on the nation’s fast-growing middle class and its spending power.

Stockholm, 1982. Two friends Klara and Bobo are maligned by their classmates in their high school cafeteria for their strange looks and punk rocker dress sense. To the girls’ horror, their classmates tell them that punk is dead, though they can scarcely believe their ears. The girls don’t fare…

    Over his more than two-decade career Curtis Stigers has straddled the boundaries between jazz and pop, pop and Americana, and more. His latest, Hooray for Love, his eighth release for Concord Records, rolls comfortably along the jazz-standard track, despite the presence of several original tunes (including the title track) and one by Steve Earle. Now a bit rough-edged if not quite gravelly, his dry baritone is as at home on a relaxed jazz album like this as on something like his dark rendition of “John the Revelator” from the Sons of Anarchy soundtrack. His upper register…
  • DVD Review: ‘Camp Dread’

    15 Apr 2014 | 1:22 pm
    There are not a lot of great direct-to-video horror offerings. Sometimes one may sneak through the cracks, typically a theatrically intended film that gets dumped by the studio: e.g. Tucker & Dale vs. Evil — but these are very few and far between. In the case of Camp Dread, writer/director Harrison Smith has managed to take a good idea and completely ruin his own end game with horrible acting and pedestrian directing choices. Not even adding established actors (Eric Roberts and Danielle Harris) to the mix results in much more than what you’d expect from a direct-to-video production.

    15 Apr 2014 | 7:01 am
    Moebius: Empire Rising has an impressive adventure game pedigree thanks to creator Jane Jensen's genre-defining work at Sierra, and on the Gabriel Knight series specifically.  Her commitment to quality writing, characters, and plot in each Gabriel Knight entry opened the point-and-click adventure up to explorations of deeper, more mature subjects that have persevered through modern entries like those from Wadjet Eye.  Moebius maintains this focus on writing and story, playing out like a page-turner mystery that also happens to be filled with ingenious puzzles and challenges.The…

    This thrilling new adventure game from master storyteller Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) and Phoenix Online Studios (Cognition, The Silver Lining) introduces Malachi Rector, an expert in antiquities whose photographic memory and eye for detail transform people and clues into interactive puzzles. When a secretive government agency enlists him to determine whether a murdered woman in Venice resembles any particular historical figure, Malachi is left with only questions. Why would the U.S. government hire him — a dealer of high-end antiques — to look into a foreign murder?

Being able to farm enemies indefinitely for experience points and currency (and in Dark Souls they are one and the same) is a feature of the majority of RPGs. As a lot of us have explained there is no real way to abuse the system short of spending countless hours farming, although considering how long you'd have to put in it's a stretch to even call it abusing the system. And again, this is just like the majority of RPGs. Why is it so objectionable in Dark Souls specifically? I haven't played too many RPGs, in fact I can…

When I joined discussions on the game and people hated it over Morrowind I couldn't understand it. Granted Oblivion is far more generic, but I knew nothing different and I found the Elder Scrolls universe to be surprisingly deep and complex. Unfortunately now I well and truly prefer Skyrim, mostly because of graphical improvements and…

The patents were expiring; the panels were cheap and getting better by the month. The rest was plumbing. Hard plumbing, the sort that calls for a Carmack, maybe, but plumbing. Rendering is the dream of a game industry desperately searching for a new immersion, another step in the ongoing escalation of immersion that…

    March 25, 2014 was a pretty interesting day for virtual currency and virtual reality! It seems the IRS deems mined bitcoins (& Dogecoins!) to be income. So it seems pretty clear that Linden Dollars are a "convertible" virtual currency and should count as income too. I'm assuming professional goldfarmers should have to report loot drops too, since they're skilled at converting that virtual currency. But I'm still unclear about participants in primarily virtual, ludic economies -- e.g. MMORPG players who may occasionally sell or buy virtual property. Language from the IRS follows…

Here's a mini update!  The game's out soon, which is the other, pretty critical half of the "virtual goods producing physical goods" idea that fuels MakieLab. It's a dress-up game, and one where you make all the fashions that you're going…

    Britain's largest retailer takes £800m writedown on China and Europe 7.33am BST Here is some early reaction to Tesco. Phil Dorrell, director of the retail consultancy Retail Remedy, says Tesco "has come unstuck". The Tesco juggernaut is juddering to a halt. Tesco has got real problems and its grand turnaround strategy, as yet, has failed to address them. For the first time ever, you could say that Tesco has come unstuck. It's blaming tough trading conditions and increased competition but other grocers are managing to perform in the same environment. Tesco: China…

    It's got a fugitive killer who bakes tastilicious breakfast muffins, an awkward script and some highly embarrassing scenes. But as a nostalgia film, Jason Reitman's treacly yarn is a surefire winnerIf you went to see Labor Day, you somehow got the wrong end of the stick. The critics warned you not to go. It racked up an impressive set of one- and two-star reviews across the board, so you really should have stayed at home. No one thought that a film with a pie motif was a good idea.But, you thought, Jason Reitman has made some awesome films, so surely there must be something to it. Also, a…

    14 Apr 2014 | 5:10 pm
    Yaiba is dumb. You play as the titular antihero who’s out to kill normal series protagonist Ryu Hayabusa. But make no mistake, this is a Ninja Gaiden game in name only, save for the punishing level of difficulty and an absurd plot. Realistically, Yaiba is just the latest misfire in a long line of idiotic Japanese games – Yaiba was developed by the Western studio Spark Unlimited but co-designed by Team Ninja and Keiji Inafune’s Comcept – designed to pander to a Western market they clearly do not understand. At first blush Yaiba has a lot of cosmetic similarities with…

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a step backwards from its unexpectedly brilliant predecessor – our own Richard Wakeling called the game in his review “Aimless, misguided and incredibly disappointng.” Critics have singled out the illogical and insufferable stealth sequences as the lowlight of the experience, but Lords of Shadow 2′s real issues stem from a poorly laid foundation, not its ill-advised accessory gameplay. For the most part critics enjoyed Gabriel Belmont’s initial journey, citing its addictive, challenging combat and its breathtaking scenery as particular…

    5 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    An interesting question came up the other day while talking about dualism and the mind body problem, the idea that the brain isn’t all you need to create the human experience: as videogame characters are controlled by external entities with consciousness, does this mean that these characters too have consciousness? Put another way, am I the soul in the character I create in a game, and by extension, is someone else controlling me? It might seem easy to dismiss this, but the more I think about From Software’s series of brutally hard “Souls” games, the more I think there might be…

    On foot I am a nuisance. A pilot on the space frontier, I use my exceptional mobility to clamber from street level to rooftops in a matter of moments; my jet-boosted belt and wallrunning proving useful tools to escape the barrage of death awaiting at the hands of the Titans. These heavily armoured robots drop from orbit on a whim, armed to the teeth with explosive weaponry ripe for killing. But atop the rooftops there’s little these hefty mechs can do unless I’m careless. So I keep my wits about me, peppering their mechanical skulls with grenades from a guided launcher, retreating a few…

    2 Apr 2014 | 11:57 am
    Let’s get this out of the way. I absolutely dread any kind of math. Growing up, math had always been, and still is a hurdle for me. In college it was the source of my worst grade by far, a D- in Pre-calculus and Algebra (which I had to work my butt off for). Even in the present, everyday basic calculations like figuring out how much to tip or counting up poker chips, are headaches and almost always result in a trip to my phone’s calculator. Because of my complicated history with math, I was hoping that since Calculords was developed by long time video game funny man Seanbaby, that its…

  • Snapshot: Coming Down the Mountain (Kill la Kill)

    15 Apr 2014 | 5:01 pm
    I’ve made no secret of my distaste for 3-D animation in anime (known in the industry as "3DCGI" or "3DCG"). The vast majority of 3-D work in anime ranges from “passable amateur work” to “distractingly awful,” primarily because Japanese animators seem to either lack the time or the training to create believable character and camera motions in a 3-D space. That being said, there is a surprising amount of good 3DCG work going on in anime, though it’s primarily being done not with character or mech animation, but with the often forgotten anime art form:…

  • The Trap Door: A Boy And His Robot – Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still (1992)

    25 Mar 2014 | 7:13 pm
    Deep down, I worry about the anime industry. I can’t tell if it’s the influx of titles that seem to be about liking girls who are 14 or younger, or the fact that for a medium that has international roots, anime these days is more insular than ever.  In any event, there are points where I wonder how much lower things can go before I finally lose interest in this medium. When I feel like this, I watch something that makes me resolve my doubts. It’s my comfort food, it’s a tale of courage and villainy and it's fitting as the anniversary post for the Trap Door.

    Ethan Gach
    24 Mar 2014 | 6:07 pm
    Recorded on St. Patrick’s Day, episode 57 features an experimental new cocktail that you can’t get your hands on during any other part of the year. We also discuss the current next-gen multiplayer hits, TitanFall and TowerFall: Ascension, and what they mean for their respective systems in a year when neither the Xbox One nor the PS4 has a deep bench of releases to pull from. And finally we reflect on the conclusion of HBO’s True Detective, debating how why so many people found it disappointing, and expectations regarding the Yellow King mystery at the heart of the show were…

    This week, we begin with Ethan airing out some grievances regarding JRPGs and RPGs, namely Bravely Default, Final Fantasy and DOTA (because always DOTA). Then we break down the world of comic books via a feud between writers Grant Morrison and Alan Moore. To paraphrase, the former believes comics are in great shape and the latter, for the four people who don’t know, is a bit of grump. And for good reason. Finally, Ben tells us what the BEST show on television is right now. Or doesn’t. BECAUSE HOW CAN YOU CHOOSE?

    Time for more Snatch and there is a huge amount of good stuff today starting with the announcement of There Came an Echo for PS4. Keen Snatchlings may recall the game being announced for Xbox One and using Kinect. Microsoft made quite a lot of fuss about the game and it was one of the lead titles on their new ID@Xbox program. “After extensive trend analysis and writing numbers down on paper in the hopes of making it look like we knew basic mathematics, we made the executive decision to bring our title, There Came an Echo, over to the Sony side of town,” said Jason Wishnov Lead…

    Welcome to the next generation of WeView. While we’ve covered cross generations titles in WeView before, this is our first foray into truly next generation games, and we’re starting with one of the PS4′s launch exclusives. So, Killzone Shadow Fall then. It stepped away from the narrative set up in the previous Killzone games and focused on a new world, years later, where Helghast and ISA live side-by-side, separated by a wall.   While the campaign had a rocky start, the pace soon picked up, exploring everywhere from empty space vessels to destroyed worlds.

The marketable number was reached across digital and physical sales in nine days post-launch, although no specific numbers between the distribution formats were offered.

  • No Digital Edition of Titanfall on 360

    Matt Paprocki
    11 Apr 2014 | 3:59 pm
    Bluepoint Game’s version of Titanfall for Xbox 360 requires a substantial amount of coding to process its technical side. Both the 360′s HDD and disc drive push a stream of textures for double duty processing, meaning no digital version is possible. Similarly, Grand Theft Auto V used this method, causing textures draw-in on digital versions not found on disc copies. EA cites, “extensive” testing with regards to the 360 edition of Titanfall, but they chose to preserve quality as opposed to limiting the scope of digital copies. Those switching to all-digital will need to…

This will finally allow the ability to explore maps and seek out strategies without being under fire. Also included is a downgrade to the Regen Gooser requirement. Previously, level five players found themselves required to kill 50 ejecting pilots in order to advance.

  • Week in Arcade: RBI Baseball 14

    Matt Paprocki
    9 Apr 2014 | 10:30 am
    A sporting classic returns with a $20 price. RBI Baseball 14 Yes, that RBI Baseball, reborn with polygons after its abrupt disappearance post-RBI ’95 on 32X. Full licensing adds the essentials to this arcade style title, eliminating notions of complexity such as pitch or swing types. Scores tread ever higher and slaughter rules are in effect. Simplicity is appealing although RBI does take it to extreme by cutting out stat tracking during season modes. This is more of a shell rather than a complete baseball title as even retro RBI entries allowed for some basic functionality. For $20,…

    If you’re like me and acquired an Xbox One on launch day, you’ve probably spent the last 4 months yelling at our Xbox using the Kinect since that’s all we could use it for. Sure games like Ryse: Son of Rome have voice commands but they seemed tacked on as an after thought. However, we finally have our first Kinect game for Xbox One Kinect Sports Rivals, this is the next generation sequel to the Xbox 360 Kinect Sports games.

Here we are, 19 days later and the words “prepare for Titanfall” still put a smile on my face. To me, Titanfall is Call of Duty plus Rock-em Sock-em Robots or some could say it’s Pacific Rim the movie, that came out in 2013. Whatever way you slice it and dice it, it’s a new game on the Xbox One, we all wanted and needed it and it’s been a hell of a lot of fun. Let me start of by saying I just hit level 50 and did the regeneration thing and I’ve had a ton of…

I started with her – well I guess “sinful” is a pretty good description – vampire novel “Dark Dance”, and every now and then I just have to find another one of her books for more trashy fun.

  • NHL 14 Stanley Cup Playoffs Simulation Predicts Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Win

    15 Apr 2014 | 5:52 pm
    It appears that this year’s NHL playoffs just might be another good one for Boston Bruin fans, that is if EA Sports‘ annual simulation is at all accurate. According to the simulation, the Boston Bruins will be taking the Stanley Cup home once again, beating the San Jose Sharks in Game 6. While that doesn’t sound too dramatic, if the rest of the NHL 14 predictions come true, there’ll be plenty more drama before the final game. According to the NHL 14′s take on the Eastern Conference games, a game which unlike some of its EA Sports brethren didn’t make it…

    Despite a general sense of COD franchise fatigue with the latest series entry Call of Duty: Ghosts, developer Infinity Ward has continued to truck on with their DLC plans undeterred. Thus far, they’ve released two surprisingly substantial map/expansion packs and even added a few multiplayer skins in the mix. One of the first and the likely the most intriguing multiplayer skin released for Call of Duty: Ghosts so far gave players the chance to done the likeness of Captain Price, but this latest one might do him one better.

The game has a strong resemblance to another, very popular game full of, um, mining and crafting, if you know what I’m saying. Only Blockheads is cuter, and offers a better UI. (In the time it took me to quit walking into things and punching trees in Minecraft, I had a Blockheads house and garden going.)

    I've sunk about 60 hours into Dark Souls II, and although I've loved my time with the game, I do have some regrets. From Software doesn't provide players with a lot of explanations or direction, and although the sense of discovery you get from experimenting is often rewarding, there are some aspects of the game that shouldn't be overlooked. Here's a list of things I wish I had known from the beginning.

    Fortnite constitutes a major departure for Epic Games, thanks to its strong focus on fort building and exploring large, procedurally generated worlds. However, the first of Fortnite's character classes will be reassuringly familiar to fans of the developer's venerable history in the triple-A shooter space. The commando is the tried-and-true lynchpin of any player squad, providing ample defense against the storm's encroaching monsters with an arsenal of high-powered firearms. While every character in Fortnite can build, explore, and hold their own on the battlefield, each class is…

  • Colbert replacing Letterman, change is difficult

    Brian
    10 Apr 2014 | 10:06 am
    I don’t blame Colbert for taking over Letterman’s spot. That’s quite the opportunity but I just don’t feel it’s the right move for us, the viewer. Colbert’s success stems from his writing team and his talk-show character (and being on late-night cable doesn’t hurt either). The Colbert Report is pretty focused on topical news and [...]
  • Be honest, do you need a wearable?

    20 Mar 2014 | 12:08 pm
    So I’m reading that wearables are now official since Google has talked about it…finally, the Dick Tracy watch is a reality. That’s great and all but some of the points in the Android video had me thinking about myself and what I feel are “most people.” Jump ahead to the 1-minute mark to see the [...]

    As much as a wrestling fan as I am (going on 30 years now), I only watch about 2-hours of wrestling per week on television…and even then not for a solid two hours. I watch Monday nights between 9p and 11p while also flipping between Top Gear and some other show. Now, I do read [...]

I’m not talking about seeing Robin Wright in other things, we’ve all seen her in plenty of movies and shows. No, it was something else. Something in the way Mrs. Underwood looked, acted…or [...]

  • Square Enix: "DRM will be Essential for the Foreseeable Future" - News

    Square Enix have stated that DRM will continue to be used for a long time to come. TorrentFreak posed some questions to Adam Sullivan, Square Enix America’s Senior Manager of Business and Legal Affairs. Some were pretty blunt, but that certainly makes for a more interesting interview. When asked simply, "Does DRM work?" Sullivan replied: "We have a well-known reputation for being very protective of our IPs, which does deter many would-be pirates. However, effectiveness is notoriously difficult to measure — in short, we rely on the data available to us through our sales team…
  • BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode Two (PC) - Review

    15 Apr 2014 | 10:23 am
    Originally, Burial at Sea was simply going to be a DLC pack for an excellent 2013 title that had a significant chance of seeing a proper successor, but with Ken Levine’s announcement a few weeks ago that Irrational Games was being disbanded, it might well now be the very last piece of BioShock-related gaming media ever made. That’s a heavy burden, and I sincerely hope that we see more from the BioShock series in future, but this second episode of Burial at Sea does an admirable job of tying things up, and is a blast to play in the process. Without spoiling too much, you now play…

Rock Sackboy on a pair of trendy leggings or subtle t-shirt. I love the texture look of the leggings and the huge zipper on the side is perfect representation of Sackboy.

  • Rain Blood Chronicles: Mirage [Review]

    Avoiderdragon
    14 Apr 2014 | 1:14 am
    As more indie developers put increasing effort into more action platformers, they’ve been exploring more themes and mechanics in a genre that is all about flashy moves and adrenaline. We’ve had titles like Shank, Strider, and so on. Rain Blood Chronicles: Mirage seeks to do even more with its own visuals and gameplay, but with more focus on quality rather than just quantity. Rain Blood Chronicles: Mirage is a mouthful of a title for a sidescrolling action platformer developed by Origo Games. It seeks to take the wuxia genre of Chinese kung-fu films (i.e. Once Upon a Time in China,…

    The original Kinect Sports was a pack-in with the Kinect around four years ago. Since then we’ve had a new Xbox and a new Kinect, along with that we now have Kinect Sports Rivals. Featuring six sports to play as well as a unique ‘Champion’ creator, Kinect Sports Rivals looks promising, although looks can be deceiving. Upon booting up the game the first thing you have to do is create your Champion, this is done by scanning your body and face, the game will then give you your character. You have to decide whether you want to be a Junior or Adult as well as choosing whether you…
  • Review: Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD

    Patrick
    7 Apr 2014 | 12:57 pm
    This review might be a tad biased, because Final Fantasy X is one of my favourite games of all time. When I heard a HD remaster was coming to PS3 and Vita, I pretty much lost my mind there and then, and thankfully, I’ve not been let down. Final Fantasy X is still fantastic, a real series highlight, and well worth a second look. Its ill-advised sequel Final Fantasy X-2 here too, and while it doesn’t touch the original for quality, it’s still a decent game. FFX hits that perfect balance of action, character moments, grand storytelling and deep, engaging gameplay. The story rattles along,…

  • Review: Titanfall

    Andy
    18 Mar 2014 | 12:06 pm
    Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall is their first title and it has been getting a lot of hype. Respawn is made up of a lot of ex-Infinity Ward employees, the developers of the Modern Warfare series, which no matter how much you do or don’t like them, you have to admit, they were game changers. It’s therefore no surprise that Respawn’s first title is a first person shooter, which bears a lot of similarities to the Call of Duty series, except it has robots in it, giant robots. First things first, Titanfall is a multiplayer only title, so if you don’t have a…
  • Review: Dark Souls II

    15 Mar 2014 | 7:01 am
    A wise man once said “You can buy other games, but Dark Souls won’t let you play them”. That man has finally been proven wrong, as Dark Souls II has stolen my every waking hour for the last week. It’s a staggering sequel, honouring the original, and altering things in subtle, but sensible ways, giving it an identity that is uniquely its own. Dark Souls II follows on from From Softwares cult series, a fantasy roleplaying action game that won’t hold your hand. It’s a tough game, sure, but a lot of the press the game gets focuses on the difficulty alone. Dark Souls II’s…

Ino-Co Plus have crafted a game that improves on Masters of the Arcane in almost every way possible, delivering a hex-based slice of deep, turn-based strategy that comes out firing on all cylinders. Though the game's sandbox mode bears much resemblance to the original Warlock, and there are tweaks aplenty to the core gameplay that we'll get to in due course, the big addition to Warlock II, comes in the form of a new…

Previous instalments have allowed us to form a love affair with characters, mechanics, plot and gameplay that have created a melting pot of an experience that appeals to us as an individual gamer. From Angry Birds to Zork, there's a franchise out there for everyone. But it's perhaps easy to forget when we clamber over the latest Mario or FIFA game that franchises themselves are a poisoned chalice, that hang on a knife-edge…

    At least that's how it was described to me in a tweet from Andrew Webster, former Gamezebo editor and current scribe at The Verge. And after hearing a description like that, there was no way around it: I just had to learn more.Now on Kickstarter, Last Life is a murder mystery with a twist:The murder you're trying to solve is your own."LAST LIFE is a sci-fi noir adventure game for PC, Mac and Linux about a transhumanist colony on Mars," reads the official Kickstarter page.

    15 Apr 2014 | 7:01 am
    Gamezebo Rating: Moebius: Empire Rising has an impressive adventure game pedigree thanks to creator Jane Jensen's genre-defining work at Sierra, and on the Gabriel Knight series specifically.  Her commitment to quality writing, characters, and plot in each Gabriel Knight entry opened the point-and-click adventure up to explorations of deeper, more mature subjects that have persevered through modern entries like those from Wadjet Eye.  Moebius maintains this focus on writing and story, playing out like a page-turner mystery that also happens to be filled with ingenious puzzles and…

    15 Apr 2014 | 3:14 pm
    Nimblebit is known for their pixely titles, and last week they brought Disco Zoo to Android. After spending some time waking up Unicorns and hunting down pigs, we’re back with our Disco Zoo Review. Disco Zoo is a management sim that puts you in charge of a pixely little zoo. You’re tasked with finding new animals to populate the zoo and with keeping those animals awake for the customers to enjoy. The latter is the key to the game as you won’t make a penny if the sheep are snoozing. Your little Disco Zoo is empty starting out, but you’re given a hot air balloon to fly to the farm and…

And we have grand plans to bring back both of them with guns blazing at some point in the coming console cycle.” – Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos The Rock Band franchise is one that is near and dear to a lot of gamers’ hearts due to the excellent playlist and the countless memories of local and online jam sessions that required absolutely NO musicianship whatsoever!

    As a child, I spent a lot of time having local Twitch sessions at mall arcades all over North Carolina. In my hometown of Goldsboro, there was a decent sized arcade sitting near the front entrance across from a couple of pizza joints. My mother would always hit the same routine every Saturday which would involve Saturday morning bowling leagues, errands, and clothes shopping at the mall. As you can imagine, the hours and hours of shopping were torture for a little boy who just wanted to play all weekend long! So, when my mother was confident that I would stay in one place as she shopped the…

    Watch Dogs for the Wii U may have been unofficially given a time window of release, as was spotted with the listing of the game on the developer’s online store.  Ubisoft’s Uplay store currently lists the game as being released sometime in Fall of 2014.  Delay for the game on the Wii U was originally announced back in February with no indication as to when it might be targeted for release.  Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that they were taking extra time with the Wii U version to “focus the team’s resources where they could have the broadest possible benefit for both…

    Back in March, Big Deez Productions launched an Indiegogo campaign to bring Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn BACK to gamers in a big way. They’ve reached their goal to bring it to PCs but are hoping to get to $450k so that they can bring it to consoles. This includes the next gen variety. While Shaq himself is involved, he and Big Deez Prod are gamers that truly want this to be a unique and fun experience (rather than executives who are only trying to capitalize on Shaq’s fame). A quick note on this funding as well. Around 5% of the total all game profits will be donated to the Boys and…

    Everyone has at least heard of a scavenger hunt; most have even participated in at least one.  What if a scavenger hunt added a fun theme and instead of finding objects, you had to find answers to riddles and puzzles?  Such an experience exists!  Commonly called a “puzzle hunt,” this activity is a great experience for those who enjoy mental thrills. Escape from the Haunted Ship is the second Los Angeles experience from the Real Escape Game company, and after experiencing it, this author is kicking himself for not signing up for the first one.  Real Escape Game is relatively…

    I thought, after doing the “Zombie Run” (review here), that I could tackle a Spartan Race with the same casual, easy-going attitude.  Oh, how wrong I was… Spartan Race was started in 2005 by “seven insane ultra athletes and a Royal Marine.”  It’s a mud run and obstacle course, but it’s also a test of strength, both physical and mental.  They don’t provide a map of the course ahead of time or a list of the obstacles; they’re a surprise.  They also race in any weather, barring a catastrophic storm or calamity.  To make sure they…

    As someone who read The Hobbit in 5th grade, I’m a long-time fan of Middle Earth and exactly the type of audience member who is preconditioned to like these movies no matter what.  I liked the first installment of The Hobbit very much.  However, I am not so far removed from objectivity that I can’t see and understand the criticisms that other people had with it.  It was slightly too goofy, and rather slow-paced.  (I don’t give any credence to the complaint of too many dwarves, though.  That’s how the book is written, and the movie doesn’t ask you to remember…

    Although this is the fifth year of the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride, I hadn’t heard of it until now.  I’m glad I did though; it’s a worthy addition to the plethora of haunted attractions that spring up in October. The most unique thing about the Haunted Hayride is its setting.  It’s entirely outdoors–a real hayride pulled by tractors that takes a 25-minute journey around the defunct Los Angeles Zoo in Griffith Park.  The wide open spaces give the creators ample freedom to create some of the most elaborate sets and scenery I’ve ever seen for a seasonal…

I haven’t really been specific. I am, of course, talking about The Precursors Legacy. Jak sets off a journey to turn his good friend Daxter back into a human. Naturally with any plot twist, the only person who can possibly help our heroes is attempting to destroy the world with dark eco! The world of Jak and Daxter runs on eco which…

    Last April, Bethesda Softworks officially lifted the curtain off their latest project with newly formed Japan-based studio Tango Gameworks. Under the leadership of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within was teased and instantly sparked the interest of any and every survival horror fan on the planet. During PAX East 2014, I had an opportunity to take a deeper look at the game in the form of two new separate playthrough demos. Here are a few of my thoughts on the presentation and why The Evil Within may or may not be the bone-chilling survival horror title that we all have been…

In between searching for Kickstarter projects, I’m always covering my other ideas for articles with a blanket or a poster, hoping that the Koalition’s editors don't walk by my cell at the wrong time.

  • The Catch-Up: April 15th, 2014 – Retailers List The Last of Us PS4 Release Date

    Jason Dunning
    15 Apr 2014 | 7:22 pm
    NHL 14 is wrong because the Lightning will win! General News Retailer listings aren’t always accurate, but when Best Buy, Target, and Gamefly all give The Last of Us Remastered a release date of June 20th, there’s some weight behind it. If Friday, June 20th is true, then the PS4 version would launch just over a year after the PS3 version, which came out on June 14th, 2013. Once a confirmed release date is announced, we’ll let you know. [Via] Download patch 1.04 for The PlayRoom on PS4 and Sackboy may appear! [Twitter 1, 2] A now-deleted tweet from PlayStation Europe’s…

    When Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launches this fall for the PlayStation 3, the size of the game should be between Borderlands 1 and Borderlands 2, and itmay not be full-priced (though Amazon says it’s $59.99), as Gearbox President Randy Pitchford told PC Gamer: It comes in the fall, at the time of year that games like to come out, and we’re still getting a grasp on scope. It’s pretty big. I don’t think it’s going to be as big as Borderlands 2. It might be as big, or a little bigger, than Borderlands 1. It might be kind of in between the two. As far as price point goes, I don’t…

  • #LOTRO 50% off Helm’s Deep

    Goldenstar
    10 Apr 2014 | 3:39 pm
    Helm’s Deep Expansion is on sale now through April 17th for 50% off! If you haven’t picked this expansion it is available for 2148 Turbine Points. Most of the content in Helm’s Deep is level 85+ but there is the Epic Battle system that is available starting at level 10. So far this special only appears available in game in the LOTRO Store. I’ve checked the LOTRO Market,  Amazon and Steam and all are still showing full price. We’ll let you know if we notice a change! Source: Store Sales Page
  • #LOTRO 7th Anniversary Gifts

    Goldenstar
    9 Apr 2014 | 7:38 pm
    LOTRO will be celebrating their 7th year as an MMORPG and are giving presents away to players as a thank you. The celebrations will run from April 16 – April 29th and the gifts you receive will be based on your account status as of April 13th. There will be an in-game anniversary festival going on at the same time that has quests, deeds, the beer fight everyone enjoys, token drops, horse races and usually one weekend of double experience. I will have a new guide posted as soon as I’ve given the festival a run through but here is the guide for last year if you want a refresher. The gifts…
  • Time to Hang Up My Mouse – I’ve Found My New Hobby

    Goldenstar
    1 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    Lately I’ve just been disenfranchised by the gaming lifestyle. Nothing is calling my name. I don’t get the thrills and adventure I used to get gaming so I went looking for another hobby. And boy did I find exactly what I was looking for! Friends let me introduce you to my new hobby: Extreme Ironing.   This is not a joke. This is a real thing people do. It’s not even a new sport even though I just learned about it. According to Wikipedia it started in 1997! It’s official though as there is a U.S. chapter that founded last year that I can join. I’m not crazy and it is totally…

    Goldenstar
    29 Mar 2014 | 8:36 am
    Guys! Guys! There is something amazing found in Rift right now. Like even if you’ve never played Rift, it’s totally worth making a free account to go check this out. On the Faeblight server, you can find a dimension (personal housing area) named “The Flooding of Isengard” by Galuhad. AND YOU CAN GO IN IT AND EXPLORE. It is massive. It is explore-able. IT IS AMAZING. Galuhad actually belongs to the CSTM guild on Rift and he let me sneak peek his new project last summer so I’ve known about this and seen it in various stages of building. Galuhad has been working long and hard on…

  • Hit Me With Your Best Silverballer: Agent 47 Targets iOS with Hitman GO

    Dave Neumann
    15 Apr 2014 | 12:25 pm
    The other half of that swimming pool is in Willy Wonka’s office. I think I need to come clean before I get too far into this one: I have never played a game in the Hitman series. In fact, I don’t think I’ve even seen one being played. I know nothing about them at all, except what I’ve read today. From this small sample, I have determined that the Hitman games are third-person stealth games which appear to be incredibly violent. This would explain my ignorance of the topic: none of those things are of much interest to me. Tomorrow night, however, the Hitman franchise is coming…
  • Because Good is Dumb: Play as Evil in Beware of the Horde

    Dave Neumann
    15 Apr 2014 | 10:15 am
    Horde? I do not think it means what you think it means. We don’t look at tower defense games too often here at Pocket Tactics because the genre sucks, which is mainly due to the lack of any deep strategy. Plop down towers, wait, plop down more towers, wait, upgrade towers, etc. It’s the gaming equivalent of baking cookies. The concept of “reverse” tower defense still intrigues us, however. Games like the Anomaly series have shown that playing as the creeps instead of the towers can actually be a lot of fun. Apparently the guys at CrazyBits Studios agree. Tomorrow night they are…
  • Tycoon Tweaking: Chris Sawyer’s Transport Tycoon Gets an Upgrade

    Dave Neumann
    15 Apr 2014 | 8:15 am
    Train don’t run out of Osnaover… unlessin’ you’re a hog or a cattle. While Atari was off butchering the RollerCoaster Tycoon series, Chris Sawyer’s development team at 31x Limited was making an already great Tycoon game even better. Last week version 1.1.0 of Transport Tycoon was released, bringing with it all sorts of goodies for owners of the game on both iOS and Android. When Owen reviewed Transport Tycoon last year, he proclaimed it the most complex and rewarding sim for mobile. The update addresses the complexity issue head on by adding a new tutorial on…
  • Review: Rollercoaster Tycoon 4

    Owen Faraday
    15 Apr 2014 | 4:30 am
    The most surprising thing about RCT 4 is that Atari kept their name on it. Maybe you wouldn’t detect it from the frequency with which we hand out negative reviews, but you would struggle to find a games writer more sympathetic to PR people than me. I’m a former PR person myself, and I’ve had to squeeze lemonade out of a client’s lemons more times than I’d care to count. It beats digging ditches, but it’s not easy. So I feel truly, deeply bad for the PR folks representing Rollercoaster Tycoon 4. Not only is it the most abysmally bad major release of 2014,…
  • Set Phasers to Facebook: Star Trek Getting A “Social” Game

    Dave Neumann
    14 Apr 2014 | 1:18 pm
    Until Trexels came along, this was my worst Star Trek memory Before last week, the most confusing thing I’d ever associated with Star Trek was when Troi and Pulaski were giggling over Riker’s sex dream during Shades of Gray. Even typing that sentence was gross. So very gross. What could possibly have rivaled that unforgettable Star Trek moment? The announcement of an upcoming Star Trek “social game”, Star Trek Timelines, which is planned for iOS/Android/Facebook later this year. Why am I confused? Let me explain. Developer Disruptor Beam paints a pretty picture, calling it a…

    Chad

    Have you ever played any of Sid Meire’s Civilization games? They’ve been around for ages, and though they always seemed like something I would enjoy, I just never got around to playing any of them.

    10 Apr 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Have you ever noticed how games seem to become uglier as they get closer to release? Strictly speaking, this isn’t actually true. What’s really happening is that the marketing departments of game studios think it’s brilliant to only show the high resolution PC version of the game for most of the marketing material. This makes […]

    Hotline Miami was one of the most unexpectedly enjoyable games I’ve ever played. When I finally gave it a try about a year ago, I did so with complete reluctance. For one thing, I was beyond drunk and didn’t feel like doing much of anything, and secondly, I looked down on indie games. Most of […]

    It’s been decades since Ridley Scott’s Alien first hit the silver screen and wowed moviegoers the world over. I wasn’t even born when it debuted. Since then we’ve seen a handful of Alien and Aliens inspired games and movies. Some have been good, some have been… not so good. But in my opinion, none of […]

    Soon you’ll be able to buy DLC for Call of Duty Ghosts that swaps out the normal multiplayer announcer for Snoop Dogg. Activision has had Snoop Dog come in to record his own voice work that replaces the standard overlay in multiplayer matches.   Snoop Dogg is coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 on April 22 while other platform release dates will be announced soon.

    Valve plans to give other developers access to its Steam workshop premium features soon. Currently, users can create and sell items for Dota 2 and Team Fortress 2, earning a part of the proceeds. Hidden Path will be one of the first developers to use this, CEO Jeff Pobst told Gameinformer  at PAX East that Defense Grid 2 will be using those options for user-generated maps when the game releases this fall. “Our first step will be to learn from what Valve is doing already on TF2 and Dota2,” Pobst says. “People who make levels will be able to submit them to workshop along…
  • Fun Stuff: Build This Lego Game Boy Advance Transformer Yourself!

    Doesn’t this Lego Game Boy Advance Transformer look all sorts of impressive? Amazingly enough, creator Baron Von Brunk has dropped instructions on how to make it on Instructables, so you can actually make it for yourself, not to mention mod it to your own liking. Of course, this is quite the project, so aside from collecting the bricks for this, you will need to get LEGO Digital Designer to properly display the plans, which are in HTML. You can get all the information you need (including a place to buy bricks bit by bit) here. If you guys want to give this a try, don’t hesitate to…

This pack has you saving Sir Hammerlock and his delightful handlebars from Crawmerax Jr, which seems par of the course with Borderlands. You’ll be going through Wam Bam Island and facing down Junior by yourself, although he’s really after Lilith, Brick and Mordecai. Take him and you take his headshrunk shellac for your neck.

    The April feature patch is here and there is much change!First thing to do is log on every one of your characters and check your mail. Enjoy the unidentified dye influx if you maybe took my advice about buying regular duplicate dyes before the patch.Then go to the black lion trading post armor trader and convert your town clothing to the new version of town clothing (if you want, I think it's almost a requirement as there's no town clothing window any more).After you might log one character into the eye of the mists to unlock your PvP wardrobe. From here it's a time of experimentation - both…
  • April Feature Pack Rune and Sigil Changes

    Thundergore aka Craig

    One method for possibly making a tidy profit before the patch in a couple of days involves buying up cheap runes and sigils or investing in dearer versions that you think might get a bit of a boost with the changes to runes and sigils.The changes include:Staffs, hammers, longbows, shortbows, greatswords (and any two handed weapons I've missed) can have 2 sigils, not just one. Some runes are being tweaked to allow for some popular hybrid rune combos right now.The hidden rules behind sigil activation are being adjusted.Point number one means that most players with a two handed weapon in at…

Second of all, the 3 hour match rotations means you never really end up suffering too long by being outclassed (in theory).Thirdly, and this is what I've been enjoying most about EotM with the two professions I'm levelling at the moment (Elementalist and Engineer) you can gain a lot of levels AND attain quite a bit of gold.Here's a few tips if you want to try it out:Stick with the karma train (probably the most important thing) and try not to…

Are these changes accidental? Are they a little reward for players? Or is this a sign that things are changing in the GW2 economy?It's well known that Arenanet keeps an economist on staff so I find it hard to believe that the influx of gold to the average player is an accident. It may be that the gold available is a sweetener to keep…

  • First Look: Gods Will Be Watching

    Chloe Slye
    15 Apr 2014 | 8:32 am
    Gods Will Be Watching is a science-fiction thriller that puts its players in disturbing scenarios where it seems like the only way out is to kill their companions. The game is probably not as twisted as The Castle Doctrine but there is still something profoundly perverse about it that would put it in the same genre of game. GWBW trials your moral judgement, ultimately giving you all the power in exchange for the titles betrayer, terrorist, executioner, and murderer if you get it wrong. In a series of puzzles, you must walk through the game unknowing of what lies ahead, but knowing that at any…
  • 5 reasons to download Facebook Messenger 4.0

    10 Apr 2014 | 5:06 am
    1. It turns your Android into an iPhone… Kinda! This is by far one of the best things that Facebook could have done to improve Messenger. It’s not that we all want an iPhone, but we have to admit, there are a few features specific to iPhones we wish we had. Facebook Messenger 4.0 now has one of these features for us Androidians. It’s the little floaty bubble that pops up on your homescreen with your friends face in it when they’ve sent you a message, and it even shows up over applications and games you’re currently using. The reason why so-called HoverChat is so…

    What is Heartbleed? Heartbleed as defined by a team of researchers in Google Inc., is a bug in OpenSSL technology, identified as a security defect that could put millions of people worldwide at risk of data-theft. What is OpenSSL? OpenSSL is an open-source software to implement the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols in millions of websites on the Internet.

  • Newscron: A great way to gather news

    8 Apr 2014 | 7:06 am
    It is easy to become bogged down with the millions of online news outlets available. It can be annoying and frustrating when you are in look of particular articles to suit your specific interests  and are inundated with piles of content that have no relevance to you.  That’s where the wonderfully simple and brilliantly clever Newscron app enters in. Newscron is an app that allows you to tailor the news for your own unique interests. First you dictate which geographical locations you would like to receive news articles from.

    Chloe Slye
    8 Apr 2014 | 2:13 am
    If you missed out on Facebook‘s fantastic new feature added to Messenger 4.0 back in January you’re not alone. It’s safe to say that what with all the commotion over the company’s acquisition of WhatsApp this information might have been tuned down a notch. So what is it that Messenger now allows its users to do? Given away by the title perhaps, but you’ve guessed it! Facebook Messenger 4.0 for IOS and Android now lets you voice call! This component of the app was updated last Thursday with improvements. It’s now easier for users to phone friends with the…

  • More fun with Solid Snake as the fans keep sending in funny and interesting images

    Dean Andrews
    15 Apr 2014 | 10:50 pm
    I never get tired of these, and it seems more and more of them are starting to pop up all over the place, like they have on Twitter recently. People sending in either their favorite cosplay photos of themselves posed as Raiden, Kaz, or Solid Snake, or just an edited image of Snake eating Doritos potato chips, like the one you see below. I'm sure you've seen this particular image before, the one with Snake sitting on a bike, and a cigar in his mouth. This one is replaced with chips, and even Snake knows you can't eat just one. The other is a bit interesting, and shows what happens when you…
  • Less than 20 days to go to make Flying Hamster II a reality, which is being produced by Game Atelier

    Dean Andrews
    15 Apr 2014 | 10:38 pm
    I usually don't post outside of the realm of that which is made by the almighty Konami, but in honor of Castlevania game music composer Michiru Yamane, I'll make an exception for this one. A game company by the name of Game Atelier is trying to make a sequel to the hit title "Flying Hamster" which was downloaded about 1.7 million times on formats like PSP, iOS, and PSVita. This included both free and paid versions of the game. Why is that significant? Because with numbers like that, it only seems logical to pursue a second game does it not? Side scrolling platform games are becoming somewhat…
  • The best Metal Gear prank call ever made, and you can bet the military is probably monitoring

    Dean Andrews
    15 Apr 2014 | 4:37 pm
    Prank calls are something of a controversy, with some being funny, and others considered out right rude and offensive. But if you can weed out the good from the bad, it does make for some solid entertainment. This is one of those ones I came across the other day, which made me laugh so hard I almost fell out of my chair. So here I am sharing it with you, because I can't hoard all the laughs to myself now can I? This is a prank call based on Solid Snake's voice (David Hayter) from Metal Gear Solid, and while your at it, leave a comment if you know exactly which Metal Gear Solid Game it's from.
  • Gizorama gives three reasons why you should be playing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate

    Dean Andrews
    15 Apr 2014 | 4:16 pm
    Now that the Castlevania series has "officially" left the realm of MetroidVania, or rather 2D realm, some are still up in the air about the new direction the series has taken. With the first Lords of Shadow being well received, it's in between title Mirror of Fate might not have gotten the praise and attention some feel it so richly deserves. One such place is a site called "Gizorama", a site dedicated to previews and reviews of what's hot and what's not out there. The article he posted the other day is called "3 Reasons you should give Castlevania: Mirror of Fate a chance". I certainly agree…
  • Sexy erotic characters like "Sniper Quiet", their origins and the controversy behind them

    Dean Andrews
    15 Apr 2014 | 3:59 pm
    I've been seeing a number of theories floating around lately about some of the newly introduced Metal Gear characters in both Ground Zeroes, and The Phantom Pain. The "sexy erotic" character known as sniper Quiet is likely the biggest controversy going around in the MG world right now. Some have brought up a theory that she might actually be the character "Chico" from Ground Zeroes that you seen in the game. Hey!, I'm an open minded person and that could very well be true. The issue with Quiet started last year when first brought to light, with some liking an erotic designed woman, while…

  • Spelunky world record broken once again - record breaker plans on topping it

    Fraser Brown
    15 Apr 2014 | 4:06 pm
    I am very bad at Spelunky. I have tried to save many, many pugs, and failed many, many times. I’ve given up. Other’s have much more perseverance, as well as coordination and skill. Three things I lack severely. That’s why the world record for the highest possible score has been broken again.

  • Star Citizen hits $42 million in funding; Chris Roberts brings out the towels

    15 Apr 2014 | 3:51 pm
    It must be a special day, because this is the second thing I’ve written in a row that references Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the stalwart bathroom accessory, the towel. This time it’s because, and you’re probably getting sick of hearing this, Star Citizen has reached another stretch goal.  Yep, the crowd-funded space sim that just can’t be stopped has reached a mind-boggling $42 million. Among the many things that will be added to the game thanks to this milestone is a towel for the hanger of every backer. You never know when you’ll need one. Along with the towel,…
  • Don't lose your towel: Grail to the Thief is an adventure game for the blind inspired by Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    Fraser Brown
    15 Apr 2014 | 2:22 pm
    Even though the games industry has expanded rapidly and by a gargantuan amount in the last two decades, there’s always room for more expansion. Inclusiveness is a word that’s dropped a lot. Often it’s in reference to the disproportionate number of female, gay or non-white protagonists, and the suggestion is that if games were more representative it would encourage a broader demographic to interact with them.  But there are folk who already want to play games - they aren’t waiting for better writing or more realistic characters, they’re waiting for a way to play them without the…
  • The curse is winning: physical version of Dark Souls 2 delayed for a week in the UK

    If you had your eye on a physical version of Dark Souls 2, you might have to wait a little longer than you anticipated. If you’re living in the UK, that is.  Amazon UK has been emailing customers who pre-ordered the game, informing them that the physical version would not arrive through the letterbox in time for the April 25th release date.  Namco Bandai has now confirmed that this will affect all UK customers, not just those who ordered from Amazon. The delay is a week long, with it arrive on May 2nd.  "This is only affecting the UK on the boxed release of the game," a Namco…
  • Who cares about Facebook? 25,000 second-generation Oculus Rifts sold

    Fraser Brown
    15 Apr 2014 | 11:37 am
    It’s probably better not to make any assumptions about the sales of an item based on angry, online outbursts. When Oculus VR and Facebook announced their plans to unite, with the social network giant picking the VR company up for $2 billion in cash and shares, people plastered forums, comments sections and, hilariously, Facebook pages with predictions about how this deal would ruin VR. This doesn’t seem to have had an impact on sales of the second generation Oculus Rift dev kit, however. Oculus VR told TechCrunch that it’s sold 25,000 units since March 19th, when pre-orders started…

  • Amazon’s Fire TV Offers Big Opportunity for Game Developers

    Nick Kolakowski
    3 Apr 2014 | 9:06 am
    Amazon is serious about conquering the living room: the online retailer has launched Fire TV, a set-top box that not only allows viewers to stream content, but also play games. That streaming-and-gaming capability makes Amazon a threat to Apple, which rumors suggest is hard at work on an Apple TV capable of doing the same things. In addition, Fire TV puts the screws to other streaming hardware, including Roku and Google’s Chromecast, as well as smaller game consoles such as Ouya (a $99, Android-based device). Much of Amazon’s competitive muscle comes from its willingness to sell hardware…

    2 Apr 2014 | 5:16 am
    Is there a golden ticket for software developers searching for jobs in games — aside from mad math skills and passion? From where recruiters stand, the only real unifying factor is experience. “The common denominator for most software development ads we see isn’t that surprising. It’s experience,” says Paul Teall, a New Orleans-based game industry veteran. “Studios are looking for people who can jump right in and get the job done. Candidates need real-world examples of work that they’ve done to show proficiency in what the studio is looking for.” Teall’s position is…

    Disney Interactive laid off roughly 700 people Thursday, about 26 percent of its global workforce, as it moves to bring itself to profitability. While the Walt Disney unit showed revenue of $403 million and operating income of $55 million in the most recent quarter, it’s lost more than $1.3 billion since 2008. The New York Times says the restructuring is “a humbling acknowledgment that, despite the company’s repeated pronouncements that long-term profitability was on the horizon, the unit remains challenged.” As part of the restructuring, the company will close offices in…

  • How Shaders Can Render Awesome 3-D Graphics

    David Bolton
    21 Feb 2014 | 5:00 am
    Creating 3-D graphics involves more than just creating objects — you also have to tell the GPU how to best render them. To do that, you use shaders. Shaders are computer programs that are run on graphics processor units (GPUs) when 3-D images are rendered, that rapidly calculate colors, lighting and special effects. Here’s how it works: The Graphics Pipeline Graphics processing units run a pipeline of processing stages with instructions — compiled shader software — and geometry data. The shader software is usually written in High Level Shading Language (HLSL) for Direct3D,…

    The final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer is here, and man, I am stoked for this movie. I think each bit of the film we've seen has looked progressively better, and this trailer is a fantastic followup to the clip we saw last week. This trailer in particular has done the best job so far of setting of Days of Future Past's crazy, time-traveling shenanigans (keep away if you want to go into it fresh). It also finds the time to showcase some truly massive action set-pieces, as well as introduce us to series newcomer Quicksilver. Check it out below, the film hits theaters on May 26. Ryan is…

    Scott Perrin
    31 Mar 2014 | 3:23 pm
    I am going to try and clear up some of the misunderstandings and the concern about the future of 10 man raiding guilds when the World of Draenor expansion hits. Is the Warlords of Draenor release the death of 10 man guilds in World of Warcraft? My opinion and the definitive answer is that 10 man raiding guilds will not be eliminated in the next expansion. This truth is contrary to the current outcry that Blizzard is killing 10 man raiding guilds in favor of creating 20 man raiding guilds. Blizzard is however giving the elite raiders and raid guilds exactly what they have been clamoring about…

    I cannot tell you how many times I wished that I could stay at the anvil and continue crafting while I leveled my Blacksmithing instead of having to stop and run to the bank to get mats I had stored there. I wished so many times that when I was ready to craft the next piece of epic gear for my Warrior that I didn’t have to go back and forth between the bank, the auction house and the anvil in an epic waste of time. I cannot tell you how many times I would just go to the auction house to by mats only later to discover I had them all the while in my bank. Needless to say I think this will…

    Garrosh Hellscream has released upon the sacred valley of Panderia the ancient and evil heart of an Old God. This catalyst of horror is just the beginning stages of a war that threatens once more to drag all of Azeroth into the abyss of destruction. And so it goes in the fantasy World of Warcraft universe with the release of wow 5.4 but as we subscribers explore the story deeper we find many parallels to some real world ideas that are far from make believe. For example Garrosh has declared all other members of the traditional Horde outside of his elite and ‘pure’ band of Orcish forces…

    Published by Rick Lane in 2011 How 9/11 Influenced Gaming Where does 9/11 stand in the context of gaming culture? Cultural and artistic mediums fall within the neutral zone on the litmus paper of 9/11 influences, somewhere between international politics and equestrianism. While it might seem like games fall closer to the study of horses in the amount of influence 9/11 has had on them, games have actually been more heavily affected than you might think. Aside from one or two abortive attempts at creating a game that actually revolved around 9/11 (such as the cancerous merchandising offshoot…

    While online gaming has opened many doors for cooperative play and meeting like minded individuals, an unfortunate drawback is the sheer volume of rudeness and unfair play that must be sifted through to find a truly enjoyable game experience. While some game communities are better at policing bad behaviour than others, there will always be those who spoil it for the rest of us with poor sportsmanship, unfair exploitation of others and plain old vulgarity. Even the most reasonable person can exhibit bad online behaviour when caught up in a game they are passionate about. Hidden under the…

    inFAMOUS: Second Son is one of the PS4 exclusives that fans have been watching very closely, resulting in a very high level of anticipation being built prior to the games launch. Many expected it to be the best of the early PS4 exclusives and to become one of the first “must-own” titles on the system, but has it lived up to the hype surrounding it? The most impressive element of the game is most certainly its graphical performance and presentation. The environment, world design and lighting effects are some of the best ever seen in a console game, and could possibly remain the…
  • Final Fantasy X/X-2: HD Remaster (PS3, Vita) review

    Robert
    1 Apr 2014 | 11:16 pm
    Final Fantasy is one of the most well-recognised series in gaming. Between the fourteen main series games, a number of extra sequels (such as X-2 itself) and remakes, not to mention the huge Kingdom Hearts series, Square Enix have always been able to convince fans that Final Fantasy is a series which has far more to offer. Many new gamers will never have experienced the Final Fantasy series, as it was in its prime before they became gamers. The series had its main run between 1987 and 2002, which is where the best titles in the series were found. In light of the upcoming reboot of the main…

    Titanfall is the child of Respawn Entertainment, a new studio which was started by ex-employees of Infinty Ward, one of the developers behind the Call of Duty series. Titanfall is currently console exclusive to Xbox One & Xbox 360, and is also available on the PC. It has been highly anticipated by Xbox One owners, and has been expected to be a ground-breaking entry in the FPS genre. To clear one thing before we go any further: Titanfall does not have a single-player campaign.

Well it could be nearly an hour but I doubt it. So, of course I’ll have to jump in and predict what will be revealed in this direct…but with a Fire Emblem flavor! 1) Sigurd is a new character AH HELL YEAH, MY MAIN MAN, MY AVATAR REP, HE NOW IS THE MAN, WOOHOO YEAH!!! …Ok let me get more probable selections and stuff. 1) There won’t be a new Fire Emblem character announced in the…

    It was a dark and stormy night (actually, it was clear as day). I was getting myself all hyped for Awakening that was coming out in a few months. Just scrolling through Serenes Forest, seeing the discussion, etc, it was fun. I was keeping up with all the news on mainstream gaming sites. Then all of a sudden, Serenes Forest started advertising Fire Emblem: Shin Monshou no Nazo. And I ended up learning how to use an emulator/rom to go play it. Now, for some this is probably not a big deal. The thing is, I understand why some would do it, especially for a title that has no chance of being…

    So by request from Strykerclaw96, I decided to download the Conception II demo for the 3DS. I had no idea what to expect since I didn’t play the first Conception game, and from what I read of the synopsis, it sounded like an excuse to see high school girls have sex with the male lead, and then use those children to fight their battles. Whatever the case, it surely would be pick up and play, and not overly complex right? Yeah, I was wrong. I’ll admit easily that it’s not you, it’s me. I haven’t played too many RPGs aside from Fire Emblem in a while, and in…

    227
    2 Apr 2014 | 10:52 pm
    Several months ago, I stumbled onto Tales of Illyria while looking for something sRPG-ish on the Android platform. While it’s more of a choose-your-own-adventure/RPG/Oregon Trail hybrid, I was nevertheless hooked, so I couldn’t help but be extremely excited when the sequel was announced. Amazon’s app store evidently updates slower that Google Play’s store, however, and I checked for Beyond the Iron Wall’s release there every day for almost a month to no avail. Just when I was starting to feel ridiculous for holding out hope, it finally appeared, and I wound up…

    The original Tales of Illyria was one of the biggest surprises I’ve had in quite some time, coming out of nowhere with a detailed, well-written Android game full of choices and consequences and combat reminiscent of classic jRPGs. Naturally, I was hugely excited for the sequel to arrive. What I didn’t anticipate was having to wait almost an entire month after its launch for it to show up on Amazon’s store (owning a Kindle Fire means having no access to the Google Play store), which was frustrating and indicative of a serious problem with how Amazon releases Android games.

  • Game of Thrones (RPG) Review

    25 Mar 2014 | 9:06 pm
    Game of Thrones is one of my favorite series; I’ve never read the books (sue me), but I find the television show to be wonderfully addictive. The only flaw I could really single out is its tendency to stretch out the “conflict” parts of the story too long without commensurate resolution. Enter the Game of Thrones video game, which not only builds up a bunch of disparate story threads in order to fold them together into a series of emotional gut-punches exactly like the show does, but actually offers real resolution to the story it crafts. Your first impressions will be wrong…

    Check out my review of the game here: Game of Thrones (RPG) review Before I tried to play Cyanide’s Game of Thrones RPG, I read a lot of negative reviews that all lamented the fact that the game wasn’t worth playing. Playing it for myself, however, I was soon drawn into its amazing story, and the outdated graphics and repetitive combat system (though it’s honestly no more repetitive than the combat in Dragon Age: Origins) did little to ruin my enjoyment of the game as a whole. This is pretty much the whole reason I started this site—a lot of huge-budget games were getting…
  • South Park: The Stick of Truth Review

    14 Mar 2014 | 10:57 pm
    Ever since Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 proved to be a less polished experience than Bioware’s original, Obsidian Entertainment has been known for producing brilliant games that don’t quite live up to their promise. Fallout: New Vegas, for example, was an amazing entry in the series that released with an incredible number of bugs, and even the brilliant Alpha Protocol has been heavily criticized (though unjustly). Because of this history, many assumed that South Park: The Stick of Truth would prove to be an equally unpolished experience. Instead, it’s proven to…

    Feral Interactive is on fire. Right after announcing Hitman: Absolution and Total War: Shogun 2, they just released Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut for the Mac. But let me tell you why you should be exited. For one, Human Revolution is an amazing game. I loved it. Everybody I know loved it. It’s part of my favorite 5 First-Person Shooters on the Mac. You really can’t go wrong with it. The Director’s Cut takes that great game and makes it even better. It fixes most of the game’s issues (damn, those boss fights were pretty ugly) and makes it…

I took the video while using the brand-new Crusader class in one of the first missions of Act 1. Agreed, this is pretty early on but I really wanted to show you how The Crusader handles! So far, I’m loving it (much more than the warrior)! Full review to come soon… As always, the footage was recorded using Screenflow (because it rocks!).

  • Dead Island Mac Review

    This review comes from Resident Author Josh Hatchett. You can find him on Google Plus.   We have seen dozens of survival horror games come out in the last couple years but it was Dead Island that began the trend. Developed by Deep Silver and released for consoles and Windows PC in September 2011, the game took its time to come to the Mac (something we have come to accept…). Virtual Programming took care of the Mac port but unfortunately, just like Metro: Last Light and Max Payne 3 last year, it got a very unceremonious Mac release: no marketing, no hype and like Max Payne 3 (or…

In case you’re wondering, the game works perfectly with a keyboard and mouse but as a long time console gamer I prefer using the Xbox 360 wired controller. Released earlier this week, Dead Island is a First-Person Shooter that takes place in a zombie infested tropical island and focuses on melee combat. It’s still too early to give you a proper opinion on the game but so far, it looks great…

However, If you happen to go to the game’s Steam page right now, you will notice it appears to be only available for Windows. Trust me, you can ignore that shameful mistake and buy it for your Mac. Why so confident you ask? Well, for one, I will buy it as soon as I get home later today – Update: I got the game, started playing it and uploaded a Mac Gameplay video as proof : But I’m also confident because the actual Mac release…

Enter Mario Kart 8 – Nintendo’s big push for the first half of 2014.

Right out the gate it had to deal with the gamers who complained it wasn’t the true Mario launch title they were expecting. No platforming, no Mushroom Kingdom and no Mario. It’s a real shame as Luigi’s Mansion ended up delivering one of the most unique experiences the Gamecube had to offer – one full of charm, wit and most importantly fun. Sure it wasn’t perfect, but for owners it was the chance for Mario’s younger brother to shine and a series many thought was dead and buried. You can…

The story of the game is unclear as you are plunged into a world with weapon wielding cyborg zombies, hellish minions and man eating slugs. The player must navigate their way from the start to a door at the end of the level. The game is fast paced and the restart is near instantaneous, which is very similar to League of Evil.

    It’s difficult to believe we used to all play games on crappy CRT displays with 640×480 resolutions and picture qualities that would now compel you to make a cross symbol with your two index fingers to ward off the evil in front of your eyes. In a world where High Definition is standard fare, something new peeked above the horizon last year, and that was 4K resolution. There was plenty of hype, but not much happened.

    Nintendo. You either love them, hate them, or just wish they’d release more games like Zelda and fewer games for preschoolers. Whatever your stance, it’s likely the makers of Mario also made a sizable contribution to your gaming childhood somewhere along the line. As awesome as some of those may have been, some of them just straight sucked. Here are the best of the best and worst of the worst that Nintendo has graced us with over the years.   Best: Mario 64 Mario is a mustache wearing plumber who dwelt in the 2D realm of gaming At least that was true until the release of the Nintendo…

    If there is one thing I took away from watching The LEGO Movie, it is that strictly adhering to the “rules” of what to construct with everyone’s favorite building block is not what the toys are all about. You should instead let your imagination run free and make whatever wild plastic chimera of creativity you can come up with. Maybe that’s a pretty commercial takeaway. Maybe I took away the wrong message. Regardless, such a lesson was not bestowed upon the developers of LEGO Technic Racing, as they are the only ones who will be doing any creating here. You Are So…

Consoles reigned supreme in the living room and on the go gaming were still strictly found on Nintendo and PlayStation handhelds. The arrival of smart phones brought about gaming to the masses, from casual to hardcore. However, this very same growth brought about the overabundance of games that developers thought the best way to entice gamers was to offer their games…

  • Eye Popping; Bubble Blast 3D

    Windows Gamers
    15 Apr 2014 | 8:43 am
    You may remember the original Bubble Blast game as it is kind of a classic but now that classic has made its way to 3D graphics on on the Windows Store with Bubble Blast 3D. The original has been downloaded over 25 million times. Bubble Blast 3D takes the classic addicting chain reaction gameplay we all know and makes it even better. The big aspect, other than the new 3D graphics in Bubble Blast 3D, is that there are over 10,000 levels in the puzzle mode. That is an insane amount that will keep you busy for literal days. In addition to the puzzle mode levels there is an infinite arcade mode.

  • Cloudbuilt Review: Gotta Go Fast

    Seth Kellen
    15 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    On paper, the concepts presented by Cloudbuilt make it out to be a game that would be right up my alley. It boasts a killer art style, rocks a fantastic soundtrack, and promises fast-paced arcadey style action platforming that plays like a mix of Mirror’s Edge and Mega Man. Leading up to it’s release, it was high up on my radar of “games I wanted quite badly”, but the final product didn’t turn out to be quite what I was expecting.Don’t let the ominous lead-in paragraph fool you; the game isn’t bad. Clearly a lot of love went into the finished product, and for those who are…
  • IMO: R.B.I Baseball 2014

    JR Moore

    When I was little I owned the good olde NES. RBI Baseball was one of the first games I bought with my own hard earned money. It was great to play it. Like most games then, it wasn’t crazy hard and my friends all talked baseball back then. Me not knowing anything at all was able to keep up because of the game.When I heard they were going to try and remake it, I was scared. Like many things from my childhood remade, I hope they weren’t going to screw it up. I could see them thinking they need to make it more realistic. Make it feel like a true baseball game. You know, the ones that…
  • Monument Valley Review

    Stephen Gillespie
    11 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    There’s an innate joy in playing something as wonderfully creative as Monument Valley. This iOS title has flavours of Fez and Echochrome (with a sprinkling of ICO), but it’s also rather unique. It’s a perspective focused puzzle game set in an M C Escher style world, where waterfalls infinitely flow and paths loop round impossibly. The focus of Monument Valley is to guide a princess to the end of each stage, by moving parts of the level round and shifting your perspective to make illogical paths through the environment. Does perspective make it look like a higher block is on…

    Impactful stories and engaging narratives aren’t exclusive to books, movies, and television, but you knew that. You know that when looking for an emotional experience, video games often offer up some of the best choices money can buy. The requirement for telling a story or invoking a feeling is something the masters of the medium have perfected, and in the modern age more than ever we now see the priority of games shift more often to the story and the message, over the gameplay and the graphics.It’s this newfound focus on narrative that leads to some supremely emotional experiences.

  • How Dare You --- Flash Ryview

    14 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
    How Dare You, by The SHPUFA.How Dare You is a launch game with a charming little scene to kick it off. A fish in a spacesuit plucks a hair off of what I assume to be a kung fu ram. Then the ram goes on a rampage.It's a fairly good launch game, you can control placement on screen, you have nice rewards for combo kills, and there's a healthy mixture of normal enemies, bosses, and powerups. I like the controls quite a bit, they responded quickly and I didn't have any problems with precise placement. I did get a little frustrated sometimes when I hit the side of an enemy instead of on top…
  • Warlords: Epic Conflict --- Flash Ryview

    Warlords: Epic Conflict, by Ben Olding Games.Warlords: Epic Conflict is a strategy army management game, where you launch your own forces from the left side to have them battle their way to the right side. Each level is pretty much the same, you either send your forces expressly against other forces, or one side has a castle to defend. The only differentiation comes from which units you can select, and they are unlocked as the game progresses.In general, this style of game has never really appealed to me before. I generally like the side scrolling variety such as the Epic War series, but I'm…
  • Icycle --- Flash Ryview

    Icycle, by Damp Gnat.Icycle is kind of a racing puzzle game, where you're riding a bicycle through an icy landscape and you have to find out (sometimes through patience, sometimes through trial and error) how to get from the left side to the right side. It was certainly a hard sale for me, I didn't think it would be a very good game when I picked it up.I was happily incorrect.This was a phenomenal puzzle game. It was short and sweet, which can obviously be a good or bad thing, but I think it was a very good length for what it was. It was a unique experience and it has strong replay value if…

It's very straightforward and it has easy controls.I enjoyed the fundamental gameplay, but it got pretty stale. You drive through the stage, picking up coins and driving through obstacles. You can tilt the car, but that aspect of the game didn't seem particularly important or achievable. Throughout the entire game I only did a few tricks. It wasn't required and it felt like a very small part of the game. It gave you a few extra points for your upgrades, but it was more effective to go…

    A Crooked Mile is 90 minutes of tough decisions, memorable moments and succeeds at fleshing out every sideline character that may have been on the side lines at the start and at introducing new characters to the story that I was just itching to find out more about. What’s brilliant about Crooked Mile and The Wolf Among Us in general is that it made me feel like I was playing my own story that has no similarity to anyone else. With tough decisions and massive consequences its made me committed to Bigby – my own Bigby as I have made him and thats what makes me love this game more…

    The highly anticipated game from former Infinity Ward founders Jason West and Vince Zampella finally dropped this last March. There was a lot of speculation about the type of game we were going to see come out West and Zampella’s new studio Respawn Entertainment.

The sad thing though for some of us was that the game was only going to be available for Xbox and PC. Without knowing all the computer specs that would be required those of us…

    Possible leaked image of iOS 8 on iPhone 6 In the latest of the daily rumors for the iPhone 6, this leaked image might possibly show iOS 8 on Apple’s upcoming flagship device.  The screenshot looks surprisingly similar to Apple’s current layout on the iPhone 5S, albeit with some key additions. The first noticeable difference is the number of apps in the layout.  The screen consists of 5 x 7 apps, as opposed to the 4 x 6 numbers of apps on the 5S and 5C.  This shouldn’t be surprising though, since a larger screen size is a foregone conclusion.  Perhaps this number of…

Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston headlines the cast.  Godzilla stomps into theaters May 16th.

    Can Sony Salvage the PlayStation Vita? Before its release, the PlayStation Vita was touted as the next big thing in portable gaming.  Boasting impressive specs and features like a large touchscreen and solid controls, the Vita was supposed to be Sony’s answer to the strong smartphone and tablet gaming movement.  Unfortunately, sales have been lackluster.  Is there any way that Sony can salvage the PlayStation Vita?

Flappybalt was originally developed for PC but was ported over to mobile devices by Steve Richey who developed Don’t Move. As expected, the art is similar to the Canabalt game.
